News received in the Rhylanor system, on 095-1115:

063-1115: Lunion / Lunion (SM-2124): Former fugitive scientist Kamur Erkanu, responsible for the death of over 100 marines in a failed warbot experiment, was found guilty of Mass Murder last week.

He will serve his sentence on the prison planet of Mithras (SM-1932) effective immediately.

032-1115: Inthe / Regina (SM-2410): Imperial Navy officials today confirmed that a 500 ton merchant ship, owned by the mega-corporation Sharurshid was pirated in the Inthe system. The crew was “spaced” by the pirates and the ship’s whereabouts are currently unknown. The ship’s manifest showed the ship was carrying 240 tons of Terran wine bound for the Regina system for the upcoming coronation of Archduke Norris.

075-1115: Regina / Regina (SM-1910): The Regina Exchange, Stock Market, was forced to stop trading today when a computer error caused a domino effect throughout the exchange. It is speculated the cost to investors for the three hour down-time was in excess of ten billion credits.

News received in the Equus system, on 104-1115:

044-1115: Resten / Lunion (SM-2323): “Thriller author Akim Gavrolovitch has been reported dead in a hunting accident. According to a report filed at Resten, Gavrolovitch died on 033-1115 on the Red Zone planet Gorram (SM-2322). There were no witnesses, but the report indicates that he was shooting from the airlock of a g-carrier; when an animal struck the vehicle, killing him instantly. Gavrolovitch was 41.

A native of the planet Capon (SM-2324), Gavrolovitch was the author of several subsector bestsellers, including Gram Rising, Porky's War, and The Iderati Conspiracy. His book Archduke Bedlam was notorious for its barely-disguised portrayal of Archduke Dulinor, and was banned in Ilelish as a result.

Gavrolovitch leaves one posthumous manuscript: the novel The Arden Gambit is due to be published later this year.

069-1115: Pannet / Rhylanor (SM-2519): It was announced today that "Downport Dome" on Pannet will open again mid-year. Almost destroyed in a containment failure caused by a starship crash last year, crews have been working around the clock to restore the city and reopen it for interstellar trade.

The city has not just been restored, but improved with state of the art high technology from GSbAG, who are putting their insidious atmosphere starship experience into the city. Once the new section of the city is open, most of the evacuated population will be able to return. With the city up and running again, the old section will then be renovated to incorporate the new technology too.

New fast access containment shelters are being built, using grav technology to enable rapid entry chambers. A new sensor and alert system is expected to reduce the false positive alarms, and this in combination with ease of use should save thousands of lives in the event of a breach.

A GSbAG company spokesman has called this "the safest insidious city in the galaxy." It is also without question the most expensive, paid for in large part by the Domain of Deneb itself. As soon as Downport Dome reopens, ships will once again be permitted to land at the mainworld.

091-1115: Rhylanor / Rhylanor (SM-2716): The Regina Raiders Drunk Jump Ball (DJB) Team swept past the Mora Matadors 15-6 in the first round of elimination play at the Sector-wide DJB championships.

News received in the Ivendo system, on 112-1115:

235-1113: Terra / Sol (SR-1827): The Headquarters of the Imperial Navy on Luna today announced that the first individual to survive to jumpspace exposure has arrived on Luna earlier today. While the accident has not been fully explained by the Navy, the communiqué suggests that the victim was an engineer working on the hull of a starship while in jumpspace.

A rupture in the space bubble would have cause the bubble to reach inside and touch the man. It is the first recorded example of a victim surviving jumpspace exposure. The man’s two companions are reported to have died immediately.

093-1115: Rhylanor / Rhylanor (SM-2716): The Rhylanor Rikzuis defeated the Lunion Lafrarions in elimination play at the Sector-wide Drunk Jump Ball championships.

027-1115: Efate / Regina (SM-1705): An attaché to the governor of Efate has been assassinated by Ine Givar insurgents. Baron Inred Bethusany, 45, was attached to Lord Rhabink. Pressed for her reaction, Fleet Admiral Lady Gwen Raiden, CINCNINT/RS (Commander-in-Chief, Naval Intelligence, Regina Subsector) responded to queries by calling a press conference in which she expressed her sympathies for the family of the deceased and announced that the culprits would be soon under arrest.

This is the third major political assassination in the Regina Subsector by the insurgents in the last year.

News received in the Garrincski system, on 121-1115:

095-1115: Rhylanor / Rhylanor (SM-2716): The Regina Raiders defeated the Glisten Gladiators 12-8 in elimination play at the Sector-wide Drunk Jump Ball championships in Arbellatracon.

051-1115: Dentus / Regina (SM-2201): Two weeks ago the Imperial Battle cruiser Adamdun mistakenly engaged and destroyed the merchant craft Bloodwell of the Oberlindes Lines. The Bloodwell, according to the crew of the battle cruiser, was not showing its ID transponder signal. The Bloodwell was under full acceleration, and did not answer broad-beam hails. When the ship did not change vector in response to laser warning fire, the battle cruiser engaged and destroyed it with high-G missile fire. A subsequent (and unsuccessful) search for survivors identified the ship.

Oberlindes Lines officials called the story "an obvious cover-up of a tragic display of incompetence." They claimed that the Bloodwell's transponder had just undergone its annual maintenance check, and could not have failed to function. All commercial ID transponders are supposedly tamper-proof, and crews cannot turn them off. Legal action is expected.

098-1115: Rhylanor / Rhylanor (SM-2716): The Imperial Interstellar Scout Service Subsector Headquarters Office on Rhylanor today announced a new program wherein all navigational beacons in the Rhylanor subsector are to be thoroughly inspected, and refurbished if necessary, to ensure the safety of all spacefaring traffic in the subsector. The work will commence immediately. All travelers are reminded to be cognizant of ongoing navigational beacon work, and are to keep themselves apprised of all safety notifications.

News received in the Garrincski system, on 128-1115:

100-1115: Rhylanor / Rhylanor (SM-2716): In the most highly anticipated game of the year, the Regina Raiders bested the Rhylanor Rikzuis, on their home court, in the Drunk Jump Ball Championship game. This makes the second time, in two years, the Raiders have taken the crown-jewel of DJB. H.G. Harlo Erghal, Duke of Rhylanor, was present at the championship game and was said to have stormed out of the arena after the loss, leaving his entourage momentarily confused.


090-1115: Regina / Regina (SM-1910): TRAVELLERS ADVISORY ::: TRAVELLERS ADVISORY ::: TRAVELLERS ADVISORY

This is a Public Service Message from the Regina Office of Noble Affairs.

A Travelers Advisory is now in effect for the entire Spinward Marches Sector. As the coronation of Archduke Norris nears, much of the nobility in the sector will be making their way to the ceremonies – which culminate in His Grace being coronated on 180-1115. Please be advised that spacelanes and navigation vectors may be changed to accommodate the enhanced security measures being implemented in preparation for this event. Those personnel in closer proximity to the Regina system can expect to be potentially inconvenienced the most. This advisory is expected to be lifted on-or-around 260-1115. Contact your local ONA office for more information.

News received in the Quiru system, on 137-1115:

103-1115: Regina / Regina (SM-1910): Professor Jothan Messandi presented his most recent book yesterday at the Regina Book Convention, the largest gathering of book collectors and editors in the Domain of Deneb. Professor Messandi is well known for his theories on the Sky Raiders. The book, entitled Hoard of the Sky Raiders was received with derision by most “serious” editors and compared in some ways to Lost Treasure Ships of the Abyss Rift by Enli Iddukagan, and both qualified as pseudo-scientific.

001-1115: Capital / Core (CO-0508): Emperor Strephon opened the festivities organized on the official Emperors’ Day. In a speech addressed to the entire Empire, His Imperial Majesty wished his subjects long life and health. In the reception that followed… (what follows is a long description of the festivities, and particularly about what the nobles were wearing).

089-1115: Boughgene / Regina (SM-1904): A collision between a refueling patrol cruiser of the Imperial Navy and a Free Trader caused the destruction of the Free Trader Yasina yesterday. The collision heavily damaged the patrol cruiser, and destroyed the antigravity generator of the Yasina - who plunged into the heart of the gas giant. There were no survivors of the crew of the Yasina. The Navy reiterates that, because of interference in the G Band communicator channel in the atmosphere of Khomesh, the gas giant orbiting Boughene, all spacers should not use the G Band while refueling.

109-1115: Regina / Regina (SM-1910): Imperial Naval officials, on Regina, announced today that due to concerns regarding increased piracy in the Spinward Marches, full funding has been restored to the highly contested Sydkai class cruiser program.

Her Majesty’s fleet is holding station while the Emperor’s Daughter, along with her retinue, will be participating in several state visits, and will be in conversation with notable nobles in-system. She is en-route to Regina for the coronation of Archduke Norris on 180.

064-1114: Beratemil / Retan (FF-1318): Archaeologists, digging through the remains of an unknown race, have uncovered a relief picturing a man in a vacc-suit. The relief was found in a recently uncovered section of what is thought to be a temple. While refusing to comment the news, Dr. Sanchez, from the Jewell Institute of Science, indicated that it might provide a good idea about the biology of the race that previously populated this world in the far off Far Frontiers Sector.

News received in the Equus system, on 164-1115:

139-1115: Shireme / Lunion (SM-2125): The pharmaceutical mega-giant Shunamann und Sohn, A.G. (SuSAG) announced today they have entered in to the final stages of development of a “revolutionary new psychotropic medication that will change the way humans interact with their environment.” Shares of SuSAG rose sharply on the news on the Lunion exchange, closing up 25 and 1/8th. The release date, and specifics, of the drug, have not yet been released, and it is considered a closely guarded corporate secret.


152-1115: Porozlo / Rhylanor (SM-2715): The Office of Commodore Jameson (IN) has announced today that the Marines of the Naval Base at Porrozlo intervened to protect foreigners when the government of the Kingdom of Saanth, (one of the small kingdoms on the planet), was toppled in a popular revolution earlier today. While no military casualties were reported, it is said that civilian casualties were heavy. The troops of the new King entered the Royal Palace at the end of the day. It is said that the revolution followed an order by King Derek XXIII and his new Chancellor to lay down their arms and surrender to the Free Republic (a neighboring country).


152-1115: Lanth / Lanth (SM-1719): The Imperial Navy announced today that the transport IMS Ineava, reported lost with all hands two months ago, was found in low orbit around the gas giant Nirvana in the Ghandi system (Ghandi / Lanth (SM-1815)), on 149-1115. It is during a regular patrol that the Cruiser INS Soth-N'gu discovered the unpowered ship in a decaying orbit deep inside the atmosphere of the gas giant. None of the crew or of the 24 passengers were found. However, unconfirmed reports indicate that two small human children were found on board of the empty ship. Their names did not appear on the passengers list. Navy officials refused to confirm or deny the information.

News received in the Rhylanor system, on 170-1115:


142-1115: Garrincski / Rhylanor (SM-2519): Fenris Arms, a local company specialising in the manufacture of infantry support weapons, has been bought by Madagascar Incorporated, a wholly owned subsidiary of Interstellar Arms. Company spokesperson, Lou Franburg, said that Madagascar had long sought Fenris Arms, a company with an excellent reputation for producing a high quality product, and its growing market share amongst mercenary companies that hire out from the world.

'The Fenris VRF has the highest ammunition to kill ratio of any VRF unit on the market today. If the Imperial Marines were armed with these babies during the siege of Banu-Phal, there would have been a lot less Vargr limping back over the frontier with their tails between their legs,' he said.


165-1115: Porozlo / Rhylanor (SM-2715): Tukera Lines has announced, today, the signing of a peace treaty between the Kingdom of Saanth (one of the small kingdom of the planet) and the Free Republic (another small country), after many months of continuous fighting. John Frankes, a representative for Tukera indicated that “Tukera takes its role of good corporate citizen very seriously. We noticed there was an opportunity for a disinterested third party to get involved, and finally bring peace in this region of Porrozlo. We couldn’t deny history.” Experts are surprised however at the willingness of the Free Republic to abandon the revenues from the jungle known to be rich in a natural anti aging drug.
