New star page is now available though a pain to access. I kind of got caught up making the star representations nicer then normal. Then did way too much research into astronomy and then it took way more time then I expected and so now the web area of it is a work in progress. Hence only two stars available right now, cuz Shetou and Alnae were faster then the rest of people. We’re going with that.

But yes! The colonization has begun. Alnae named their star Asgele and Shetou named theirs Da Xian. Alnae seems to have taken a safer approach and started to settle a star with seemingly optimum conditions for humanoid colonization given the limited data astronomers had to work with. Shetou went nuts and tried to take control of one of the least understood places in space to see what was up with it. Desoir and other independents are on their way to another system under the same mindset as Alnae. Really only Shetou did something that crazy, and obviously those interested in seeing new stars prefer to hang out with Alnae’s starting position then Shetou’s. Though its likely that Shetou is about to gain a massive science lead by colonizing something so incredibly bizarre, and Sahad studiers are particularly interested in the Shetou colony.

To be noted, these stars that are on the star map, and being colonized, are only on one plane. This is a reminder cuz someone probably forgot (if not everyone) that it is Sol System’s incredibly unique feature that its star overlaps on all available planes. Even more so that Thenica does as well. There is a general thought among the space community that this unique feature might be why we’re host to such advanced life even as we find signs of it on other planets they are far from intelligent.

This has also brought another unique feature into the light in recent media attention. Valdir confirms the aliens had never seen Pandem on the scale we’re able to do it. The magic was known about and so were the planes, but no race in the galaxy that it knows of has comparable mastery of pandem magic and the planes as we do. In short, characters like Halaestra might seem a god to other species in the galaxy.

So far the psionic thieves tools are horribly ineffective though reports come in from ragas on making them better at thwarting law enforcement. Though Ragas notes from idle chatter around the department that there is definitely a higher tier of investigative agency they can call in if things get really trippy, though so far there hasn’t been a need nor a case that justifies calling in the COA teams.

The research station has had to undergo multiple repairs, while it is a struggle to find applicable uses for Sahad not involving breaking stuff its very very good at breaking things. Crazy hypothesis continue, the most useful thing perhaps is some progression in the field of making enchantments based off of the magic utilizing the already known methods from the FTL technology. If nothing else, it is capable of being an interesting power source, albeit a bit volatile so far.

Some shady researchers are sent to the SV3 shipyards to work on the stealth technology reverse engineering.

Despite all efforts to follow the recipe, and the production of amazing sandwiches, the lack of experience still shows. The Kenin Sandwich still proves impossible to truly replicate in the hands of mere amateurs.

The Raiders, under orders from Vaeri, are hiding out at the Dragon’s Lair. This definitely hurts profit margins but the Nah division is now convinced this is going to be a particularly big problem.

However, they’ve also started displaying some less then obedient qualities. Vaeri was sent back to Nah division missing multiple fingers and badly injured, apparently having had a disagreement with members of the Nomads. They also are reportedly not that scared of losing money, psych eval would point towards them having other motivations then money. Which would explain why they are so uniquely fierce as pirates. As gauntlet control over them slips without Ikeshia in charge, it is something to keep an eye on.

Super Carrier still under construction, it will be at least another year or two.

Necrocarnum weekly roll is 12, still looking.  3d6 is not so great for getting highrolls, hence Setani is so special.

Tech division found the link that would allow Sharen to piece together that the conspiracy is a lot bigger then pirates. Its Jhaeros. Despite the death of Toxyn, she did recruit Jhaeros for a time and likely told him an awful lot of things.

Investigations into the bombing attack  are not progressing well with the division’s main resources focused on the Sharen problem. They found out Solvang boards use a closed and wired network similar to our tech division’s internal servers. They deliver information between stations by hand to make it much harder to track or crack their networks, it is likely they have someone of similar talent to Aryn on their cybersecurity if they are so paranoid that they’re aware of what someone like her can do. So agents could opt to try and detective this one and date which board had the job posted first, interrogate managers, or deliver Aryn to multiple Solvang stations to try and figure out where the job really originated from.

Vaeri underwent some medical procedures to fix up her injures that were inflicted on her by the Nomads and she’s back in operating shape. She’s a little too hard to read so we’re not sure how her pride is taking things. Though she reports that the pirates should be kept a close eye on, they’re becoming more independent.

A series of events have occurred around Angel, detailed in stories of lore.

Ezzvalt has made it to the mining station to reign in the slaves. Production values are stabilizing and showing dramatically improved output, its best if no one asks questions on why and let the station drift quietly through space never to be heard from. Profits up +6 already though.

Stellaris was too distracting, so not as eventful.

From around the system:

We mark the maiden voyage of the first ship to hurl itself into the depths of space and wish it farewell. Despite all the investment and preparation Alnae put into the colonization plan, Shetou still beat them to the punch. Less so because of efficiency or resources, more so because one crazy guy just got in his ship and took off and didn’t tell anyone he was going. Farewell lone orc, you are the first to travel beyond the reach of our star. History shall remember our first interstellar traveler as: Some guy who just took off without preparing as much as everyone else. He’ll be back soon, he didn’t take enough supplies to do much. We suspect he just wanted to see a new planet for the sake of it.

Meanwhile on that front, I forgot to do the star map so we’ll get the colonizers rolling out next update.

Friction between Solvang and Selona is rising due to some meddling on behalf of people that Sam is going to hate.


Mordekai Aberhoff

After all the data is crunched, leasing out some space on a space station isn’t too difficult or expensive (at least not to the scale of a corporate enterprise like yours). -4 profit as long as space station is open. For the time being aforementioned sahad study hall is located on a station above SV3. The location was chosen since it had a space station with space to lease out and SV3 is independent so no government meddling. Hightower’s space docks are also in orbit around SV3 for reference.

In general due to the discreet and non-invasive nature of your current projects not much goes wrong enough to get your attention.  For now Ragas is still a rookie on the force in Thenica.

Edric Vandross

Attempts to reverse engineer the stealth tech are taking awhile, even as help comes in to assist Raymond its a very complicated device. Mostly in that the runes that make it work include traps so that the effort to just replicate it by copy and pasting results in catastrophic failure. Likely a means of messing with other drow who might have tried this, though evidently applicable vs pirates too. The team points out it needs a psionic expert to come help as thats another part of how the tech works.

The pirates are baffled at the bizarre order to have a member take some online courses. Purely because in the world of piracy that’s a very strange thing. Though the raids have moved over to Alnae territories because they’re afraid the Shetou will get a bit revengey on them, and Halaestra has already gone through that before.

As you look into arcane research companies, the issue there is most research companies are backed by another interest, which is how they get started up. Most are in the employ of other corporations or government funded, so investing in them would involve investing in and taking over the much bigger backer. As an example, Johnson’s pharmaceutical company has its own research lab the company pays for to research enhancements to its products. So you’re unlikely to find a rogue science lab as it’d have no income in the first place, consider forming a new one.

Speaking of which, halfway there by recruiting enchanters to help Raymond on the shipyards. Maybe just keep them around afterward.

Gotta name the colonization corp so I can add it to the sheets.

That necrocarnate thing fails to highroll this week and Kala’s search continues.

Vaeri and the tech crew keep an eye out for Sharen retaliation against the pirates. The team managed to intercept some investigators. In response Sharen seems to have figured out that whatever is going on its more then a few lucky pirates and have stopped sending faceless mooks of ever increasing xp values and just threw out a boss. While Vaeri normally does whatever needs be doing this time she sent a request to clear that if objective is important enough to allocate the resources she needs to handle this one. The request is to call in both Setani and Vanjin, as well as the allocation of a lot of division resources. The suits project the trail could be covered and the Sharen dissuaded if the stealth tech and ship were left somewhere for them to find, otherwise the division is about to get into a special ops war with drow. Namely because Yasice is a Val and Shanhai is as important as one too, so killing them could result in getting Sharen really mad. Royal pride and all that.

Finding a tutor for Setani is as difficult as highrolling finding a character to hire on so thats going about the same as the earlier point. The only known necrocarnates are the Song family and they’re probably not keen to teach people the technique given their lawful stupid alignment.

Agents report that they figured out who updates the board pretty easily. Though there is a chain of command. The local station manager is responsible for updating the board and uploading posts to the Solvang network to post on other boards at other stations. Asmoday has full access to all information regarding these but each individual manager only has the ones they were handed. While there is no obligation on the job posters to register with any sort of ID, just the job and the payout, the agents find it unlikely that Solvang couldn’t track these details down given how their whole business strategy really works. Some in-office recordings for example. The problem at this point is finding out which manager would know what we want to know as we don’t know where the job’s original post came from. That or going straight to Asmoday but that has a whole other clusterfuck of obvious potential problems.

In related news, while the agents were at the Solvang station they were witness to the appearance of Yasice, apparently Sharen is keeping a close eye on the pirates now and somehow Yasice found the Solvang station. This is where things went awry, see there just so happens to be an ongoing recruiting tactic of spreading the legend of one crazy ass pirate team that somehow takes on military ships. The Raiders of Abbathor are now prime targets and should probably be advised of such.

Psionic Found

The bomb investigation team has spent awhile figuring out what happened and the bombed out outpost in necrosi they encountered. Since then their newest lead takes them to the solvang job boards. The problem is they have no way to get aboard a solvang station.

The various companies have since been upgraded.

R&D will get working on that one.

A few recruits are able to be acquired under the premise of learning sahad, though they are mostly fresh out of general education and not sure what they’re doing with their life. Inquisitive and interested in a new field of study that has yet to be studied.

Cerys traveled to Rixa-Thenica, taking her new squad of sahad wannabe college kids. She confirms the phenomena is related to sahad but whatever is causing it is not currently there. Whatever once caused the effects has long since moved on.

Mordekai Aberhoff

Faye Ryqen discreetly moved to the shipyards, by having her boss be slightly more annoying then usual so the offer from the shipyards would be more appealing.

Facility for sahad study under the process of picking what it wants to do. The little bit we know about sahad seems to imply it has a heavy emphasis on space stuff. As all students of it can already exist in space without any protection. As such the facility recommendations include a space station or just some sort of science ship. Though stations are far more expensive if built for just one purpose as opposed to hanging out on an existing one somewhere.

Kenin explains that sandwich perfection is not attained by a mere cooking recipe and his email includes a 2 page discussion on how it takes soul and feeling.

The Cult of expanded lucidity now hosts a psionic version of burning man apparently.

Ragas is working on Zonaricht-Thenica for now.

Edric Vandross

Halaestra has re-acquired the Nothic and keeps that as her personal ship due to sentimental value, and it was modified to accommodate her pandem problems. She has since taken over the raiders and figured out Gellix is actually a decent business manager assistant. She ends up taking her funding allotment to acquire a new frigate crew. Since then the Nothic has seen a few overhauls of its systems.

Reversing the stealth tech for the battlecruiser will take awhile. The Sharen variant is so advanced Raymond’s first statement upon trying to figure anything out about it was “how the fuck?” And he’s the best enchanter in the Gauntlet, good luck Nah.

Intel reports found a problem, a sharen stealth ship being captured is something that gets the Shetou military attention. While Halaestra was smart enough to scatter her trail so it isn’t so easily found, you can expect heavy retaliation if they find out where it went. Raymond is suddenly suspicious of all drow and demon team members aboard the space station.

A vault is now under construction in the middle of nowhere.

Super carrier project will take a little while. While under construction you have -20 to profits due to the sheer scope of the project.

Sethis Tyne

Sophia doesn’t have much room to branch out into the colonization sphere as no one is actually colonizing anything yet. Also criminal activity doesn’t do much in new colonies with  distinct lack of heavy law enforcement, at most its just shipping and handling.

The tech offices are moved to the unnamed battlecruiser, which you should probably give a name for easier reference in the future.

Aryn finds Jhaeros is kind of untraceable. He’s not a very modern digital man, he’s a barbaric vampire who goes from place to place just causing trouble. If he hasn’t left the planet there is no record of him buying a ticket to get anywhere. Also he’s necrocarnum not pandem.

Again, necrocarnum is the one that has to do with messing with people’s souls. Pandem is the one that opens rifts to other planes of reality. Also you can always hire out help from the Raven Facility as they have experts in the craft. Until then kala finds that tracking down a necrocarnate will take a little while (bare minimum is a highroll so we’ll see which week you ever land that roll on).

Luci Serrano

One of the moves that was in production finally got around to releasing and did moderately okay. Not quite as good as the musical.

Nothing attracts attention like a coupon giveaway. With all the shows focusing on colonization life as well and the fact that ships are about to take their first jumps to new stars the fervor is at an all time high.

Fans are upset over the cancellation of firefly 2.0

Luke sets off to investigate the bombings some more, he reports that there was a peculiar problem on the trail to Necrosi where he was lead to a facility that looked like it had been assaulted in the recent years and is mildly blown up.

In all the hurry to get FTL going and explore the stars you’re one of the few people to go “wait…if we cause ourselves to move that fast what happens medically speaking?” Sarah finds herself busy trying to find the answers to that.

You spend a lot of money upgrading your stuff. Though the mining upgrades don’t go too well due to the occassional slave riot or misbehavior making construction hard.

Lets do the time warp again! (2 years later)

Stories of lore 7

From Around the System (It is now 1589)

The secret to interstellar travel was acquired from Valdir by Valencia Desoir who subsequently sold the technology to the major empires under the general understanding that eventually everyone was going to reverse engineer the device that makes it possible so she just took the big payout to release the technology itself. The device itself costs about 230 million to produce each unit, though prices are expected to come down as optimization of the technology improves. It can move a ship approximately 1 light year per week. Notably Valdir’s alien mothership can go faster though thats not much of a surprise to anyone.

The Valdir mothership has been fully regenerated in the last few years though it has taken a new shape, appearing like some sort of cross between a traditional ship with strange organic looking growths. Reportedly this is so that humanoids can more comfortably utilize it, though a lot of it is still a series of sealed off areas where the ichor flows and the alien monsters are created.

The Sharen successfully built the new ship for Song Yi within the year as they promised. Intel spies know they actually needed to extend work on it to get it up to their quality standards but they just had engineers keep working on it as “maintenance” while publicly announcing it was done as it could at least fly. Unlike Song Yi’s last ship which was primarily a dreadnought with some carrier capability, this one is a carrier with some dreadnought capability, including its new big fucking gun that is the biggest Shetou has ever put on a spaceship.

The Desoir Ultra Carrier also completed its construction though is experiencing delays as the tech for interstellar travel hits a kink with a ship this big and they’re working on making the necessary adjustments.

In the more political news. Alnae’s economy is currently strained by its rapid development and over-investment in its fleet and colony ships in order to prevent Shetou from being able to just steamroll them and discourage Shetou from attacking. As a result it is in a time of difficulty which has certainly boosted the Alnae people’s general desire for colonization thanks to the shows a certain media company keeps producing.Though at the same time, there are also many who greatly object to the idea of colonizing distant stars given their current situation is a direct result of a visitor from distant stars and they can only wonder what else is out there. They don’t particularly like Valdir for the obvious reason that it has the same mothership that put them in the current situation.

Shetou is doing about the same as usual, despite having the current upper hand on Alnae the houses aren’t all rushing to colonize anything they can and are instead growing at a bit more natural then forced pace. This is largely due to the way their society works, which can make it difficult to try and force people to do more colonization then they feel like doing. While the new carrier given to House Song was quite publicized it hasn’t really impacted their overall presence in space very much given Sharen was already a naval superpower, adding one more big ass ship to the nation hasn’t changed all that much from a logistics stand point.

Valdir is as usual up to their weird agenda that doesn’t involve much discussion with anyone else. They produced a fleet awfully fast though, consisting mostly of giant tentacle monsters that can float around space. They appear to have acquired the resources to do this by ravaging the nearby moons of SR3 which are currently barren wastelands despite SR3 itself having been rebuilt to a forested world with the alien’s abilities. Notably their fleet doesn’t have much in the way of guns like traditional ships do, but the bioships probably shoot Sahad lasers as they are very much alive.

Solvang is also in a bit of staisis. Piracy grows as the society it can prey on does, so they aren’t really rushing to acquire colonization equipment or even steal ships for the purpose. They have discreetly funded a few other companies who are interested in colonization using their banking system but this is mostly out of interest to see humanoids expand so they have more territory to set themselves up in over time. A few in the know of the criminal underworld are aware that Solvang has specifically been researching how to hijack ships in deep space between the stars where there will be little to no security even after colonization expands to other stars but they’re not in any particular hurry.

Selona on the other hand has a different approach to the coming colonization boom, unlike the business sighted empires who bought the technology from Desoir who acquired it from Valdir, Arkaric simply asked for it and was given it since he was physically at the Thousand Legends event. Indal seemed to like the cut of his jib and just let him have the tech well ahead of anyone else getting it. Since then Selona has been working on its own manufacturing projects, notably they were offering to sell the massive engine necessary for interstellar travel even before Desoir but the general news didn’t notice this because it was among the black market. Technically speaking, this means a bunch of criminals beat everyone else to the punch on developing the technology. Within the black market circle this has added to Selona’s notoriety, Sophia from Nah division put two and two together. This definitely confirms that Selona is hiding its own ability to manufacture all the products it sells, while that was an accepted premise for awhile this is the first thing Selona did that gave away it definitely has extensive manufacturing capability. Which just raised the question of where the hell they’re hiding facilities capable of producing new technology before the other major shipyards could do it.

In the development of sahad, various people have started to become particularly adept at using the new magic. While Valdir points out there are still no real masters of the art besides the mothership itself, at least progress is being made. A deeper understanding of the magic over the last couple of years has made it evident that its based on cosmic phenomena. Those who have learned to use it even at the most basic level have demonstrated the ability to survive in the vacuum of space comfortably and even move around in it as if via levitation spells. So far the only creative method of its use has been in engineering the engines for interstellar travel, otherwise all of its users only really seem to be able to blow things up with it. Other then surviving in space it doesn’t seem to do much other then break stuff. Current practitioners of it seem to ramble about entropy a lot.


Multiple Cycles passing, way too many small details.

Cerys Anahi, plagued by alien magic PTSD, went to Valdir to seek professional help. Instead of opting for therapy that would make the visions go away she pursued the path of finding out what they were all about. As a result she has leveled up and now has the ability to use sahad magic.

William roberts continues to make sound business decisions and Madhammer has been hired on to various ships planning to take the leap into the unknown and see whats over at the neighboring star thanks to his negotiating prowess.

Edric Vandross

The raiders managed to finally steal a stealth battlecruiser from Sharen after what must have been two years given previous failures in this field. Though in the process Jezraema and Ikeshia were killed along with 60% of the whole crew. The frigate Ikeshia normally flies was destroyed and the Nothic was so severely damaged that its still floating out there in space waiting to be towed. Halaestra is seriously injured and Gellix lost an arm and is paralyzed due to a spinal injury. This brings us to the next problem, now that Setani was transferred to Nah division and Ikeshia is dead, no one remaining on the crew knows who the boss is. They simply docked the battlecruiser up at the same old shipyards they always took them to. Gellix is back on his feet after some cybernetic medical attention at least.

The carrier thing was sold to Alnae successfully.

DV Finds expanding into Valdir difficult, while opening an office there isn’t too hard the Valdir don’t really respect currency as much as the rest of civilized folk so its hard to make much profit or keep tabs on all that much going on there. While they do still have a use for the bank, especially the regular people, the issue is the lack of investment opportunities. So it works…there’s just not that much business to do there.

DV would consider any asteroid to be alright. Really any location far from civilization centers would be good by default so picking a specific one is iffy. Technically hiding it within the shipyards might also work as its in orbit and ships coming and going from there wouldn’t be particularly suspicious though its not quite so remote. In terms of ultra secure isolated places, build a space station in the middle of space that is absolutely nowhere and see if anyone can ever find it. Similar to the Raven facility. As the campaign motto seems to be: space is big.

Divinity Vaults +14
Hightower +12
Shipyards have seen a few expansions by the suits with all your fancy money. Carrier sold and now has its Super Capital dock, 2 capital docks, 2 large docks, 4 medium docks, and 6 small docks (though technically not really for docking, for construction and “maintenance”)

Sethis Tyne

Bryan has settled in relatively well. Over the last two years Aryn has gotten pretty comfy with her workplace and has decorated her workspace with a lot of silly stuff that makes it very obvious which one is hers.

As was mentioned in mezzy’s section, the pirates managed to acquire a stealth battlecruiser which is going through refit processes. While a battlecruiser isn’t exactly a carrier its more then sufficient for the tech division. Though Nah division’s total size wouldn’t exactly all fit on it as you have a lot of crews around the system.

So far the shadiest shit Aryn has attempted in her two years working there is she changed everyone’s email signatures and rigged it to never display to the sender only the receiver. It took people three weeks to notice this because no one wanted to talk to each other about the awkward signatures everyone was flamboyantly displaying. That and she plays a lot of video games at the office when its a slow day.

The bombs that took out Toxyn’s house are easily arcane in nature. Eventually Aryn figured out who the team was that bombed the place but thats basically a dead end as they’re just a group of solvang members who probably just picked up the job off the board and carried it out to get paid.

Bryan’s trial run goes pretty well. Nothing terribly outstanding for a hero unit assassin but its still a hero unit assassin’s performance over a faceless mook.

Vanjin has been a bit busy, now that she’s famous she has a lot of work hunting people all over the system.

Problematically, after the assassination of so many of Sophia’s enemies they have come to the conclusion its definitely her having these hits taken out on so many other gangs. So far Sophia is still alive but only because the planet that is fighting back against her isn’t where she bases out of.  The crime scene violence is starting to escalate in response to all these murders, particularly on SZ3 Gamma where the slums are very profitable to control. Sophia’s gang members have been getting gunned down in the middle of the street at SZ3 Gamma with several death threats being sent to Sophia herself. The Raiders constant sending of the solvang job board reveals that there is now a hit on Sophia that was recently posted.

Nah Division -14
Black Market Division +28

Luci Serrano

Over the last few years the tv shows have started airing, and two of the four even got enough ratings for a second season. Of the two one has been successful enough to be cleared for a third season.

The musical went over pretty well, likely because the DM is still salty about Galavant being canceled, and got a sequel. This did leave Angel with a mixed image given she was in a musical but still portrays herself as hardcore. Though somehow her fanbase has been growing weirdly fast, like downright suspiciously.

Movie star candidates are still in the process of being seen enough times to see if any get likeable/famous enough to be called a movie star.

You now have a small harem of pets, well done.

In other news, Exme finally came back to work after some time passed and the weird visions stopped.

The mining facilities have seen expansion and good progress but setbacks as slave labor revolts result in both loss of product and loss of labor as some of them get killed. So far they haven’t managed to take over the facility though so mining continues on.

Mini update since half the players are missing

Mini Stories of Lore 6

Sethis Tyne

Bryan King joins the team.

So far Aryn has been well behaved, Vaeri scares her.

The waiting game for a battleship will go as it has so far as the pirates still aren’t ready to take on a military ship of that size. However, the quest for a stealth ship suddenly became easier. Aryn found 56 of them and their patrol routes in her second week. She wasn’t actually looking for those but her supervisors remembered we had been looking for those before. The biggest one on the list is a battlecruiser owned by Sharen with the smallest coming out as frigates from all kinds of places.

The details of Toxyn have taken awhile to find, like two weeks of update time. Aryn just mass harvested data from the city looking for specific chemical sales that made up Toxyn’s weapons. Eventually being able to find some details out about who they suspect was Toxyn though its hard to completely confirm as the suspect is a chemistry professor at a university who has suddenly gone missing. Its hard to confirm because they have a pretty legitimate reason to own all the stuff Toxyn used, so not quite uncovering the batcave or anything. Harvesting data didn’t really get anywhere interesting there as its pretty clean and its likely all the relevant evidence was on their APT which was eaten by an alien. The trail seemed to have gone cold except for a stroke of good/bad luck when Vaeri investigated the professor’s home and came face to face with a new problem. The place was stripped clean and blown up in attempt to kill the elf agent, apparently unaware that people in Vaeri’s line of work always wear their combat shield. With a bit of assistance from the Raiders of Abbathor it was discovered this had been carried out by the Solvang job board. Unfortunately, hacking into the Solvang job board doesn’t get anywhere as it doesn’t have hidden information on its server end, it literally might as well just be posted paper in a bar. Only Solvang officers who maintain the board would have details of its posting.

The tech wing is expanding with all these investments.

Luci Serrano

Exme was kind of on vacation anyways, she’s still sitting in her room contemplating all the things she has seen and unseen, all that is and was not (insert 18 more of these)

You forgot to set your hiring price for luke, no progress made

Angel is still wrapping up the musical and stuff with Lush as well, so no she hasnt had a tour yet. On the upside the movie will be released after the next financial report as it is just finishing stuff up.

You buy a shipyard

You buy some vampiric boytoy who just stands around looking pretty and doing “things” for you. Other vampire experts suggest the larger the harem the more prestigious the owner.

The raven footage is compiled into a bit more of a neat and orderly show, though remains in the vault as requested, along with the eulogy speeches for celebrities in case they die.

Bike pump project just proves you’re crazy.

Tech Rush

On break from story writing this week cuz the last one took too much effort.

Yenneiros Whitetalon

Business keeps on doing business things. These updates are within a pretty short span of time so financial report is still a bit out.

Checking in on Cerys shows she is fine on the physical front and seems completely normal during mental evaluations unless they ask her to talk about what happened. Then she starts babbling.

Gheir only reports having seen Cerys develop serious ptsd from the battle, the rest while shaken up are more or less fine. Though some stayed in the new empire.

Mordekai Aberhoff

Mhaldaru foods is doing pretty well and are packaging large quantities in preparation for the colonization boom everyone is sure is just around the corner.

Cult numbers are expanding after the publicity of keeping in contact with Exme during the invasion.

Aerovent Filters profits are up as this colonization boom requires filters.

Edric Vandross

Now are you looking for suitors who are useful as conspirators or useful as corporate puppets.

Profits are down while loans and a ton of money is dumped into infrastructure, though obviously this will likely yield greater profit in the future. Unless the dice hate you.

Shipyard is upgraded.

Siwa is all over that plan.

It doesn’t take long to get the new docks busy, though ships take awhile to get built when doing custom builds. The suits feel just mass producing a model in each dock would yield more profit, but there is something to be said for brand identity. Basically do you want to be Ford or Ferrari. On the upside to doing customs with just the two docks is you can appeal to hipsters since you physically can’t flood the market with your designs.

Attempts to offer to build stuff for Alnae looks most promising so far, Valdir seems uninterested. It has come to your attention they are being heavily courted by both Desoir and Sharen. Though they’re not having much luck either.


Sethis Tyne

Vanjin seems to have escaped unscathed from the horrors of war and doesn’t have the PTSD so many others have acquired. Also parasite free. Setting her back into the public as a bounty hunter seems easy enough for her now that she’s famous.

Input X money to get X Selona upgrades. Whatever number you’re thinking, add another zero or two. Their pistols cost 3500, but can punch through a police dropship. Keep in mind their infantry weapons do not work well for weaker races, in general elves break their wrists firing these things. Not so great for stealth to carry a bipod mounted heavy gun.

Investigative reports on Indal find that its highly unlikely he’s tied to your enemies. He’s literally been traveling the Abyss and Void for the last fifteen years challenging every big thing with teeth he found to a frank exchange of ideas. His few excursions back into the middle planes consist of supply runs. He ditched out of school, stole a firefighter’s axe, and disappeared into the lower planes when he was 16 and then we didn’t see much of him anymore until just recently. That’s about as far as the intel team looked into it unless you want to deep dig a teenagers life. The more interesting surface sweep was on his right hand man Kenin, a former special ops commander for a now-fallen Shetou house.

Battleship level stealth enchantments cost 10-15 million per unit. Largely due to the spectrum of things they have to protect from. Very rarely are ships identified in space via a telescope. The asteroid plan would depend on the size of the asteroid, just use battleships as your scale reference for now.

Your best people manage to figure out what is going on with Exme, and all other people suffering from the same condition by interviewing Valdir. Valdir’s people in the hive have figured out its the alien’s magic. Once higher level spells are both seen and focused on, or if something they call a Cosmic Entity is seen, it unlocks the understanding necessary for sol humanoids to use it. The problem is it is a bit overwhelming. Therapy doesn’t really help, though they say it’ll go away in a couple months if they aren’t exposed again. Though learning to actually use it would currently require studying with Valdir as no one else has the alien to teach them.

Boyfriend or boytoy? Conspirator or maintains-my-identity-as-not-illuminati?

The excess funds put into mining is yielding results as the asteroid miners are expanding.

Also yes you can buy a shipyard too if you want. Though you’ll want frigates for news crews not corvettes. See chat where mezzy posted dock costs and either use those to expand his existing one or add an extra 25 million to get the raw station the docks will be attached to built for the workers to use.

Elves specifically enjoy food that doesn’t make them overweight, so that doesn’t work too well. They’re very health-conscious because they live for centuries, so being overweight for them is much more dramatic of a health issue then it is for a human. That and they develop muscle with more difficulty then other races and have a harder time lugging fat around.

I’m just gonna wrap a whole bunch of that as “invest in Sol Media” more.

Musical still in production.

Non-photogenic secret investigations man

In interesting news tidbits, no one is really talking about the Raven suddenly releasing dozens of high powered serial killers who are now suddenly decorated military officers of Valdir because only Exme really ever reported on that place and the footage was never really released. With everything that is going on no one seems to notice the famous mass murderer who wrecked a city block with ice magic has become a member of Valdir’s inner circle either. Since you still have the footage from Exme’s expose, that’s something to consider what to do with.


Things going on in other places:

Due to Selona’s personal attendance at the invasion, the crime syndicate is in the news even more. He has consequentially reached a strange equilibrium with Alnae for the time being, partially because of public opinion but mostly because they don’t want to pick a fight with the guy Exme had footage of driving a tank out of the alien mothership. He’s a bit too crazy. Though this has also caused shifts in the criminal world, making Selona even more influential and powerful then before.

Due to the aforementioned shifts in influence, Solvang is being particularly cautious of the Selona gang. With Selona’s recruitment numbers increasing so is their criminal activity, and sales for weapons that can hurt aliens. Solvang has been discreetly facilitating the business of Siwa to compete with Selona’s arms market for this alien scare to try and keep Selona in check.

Alnae is in a bit of a sticky situation as they just lost their most important planet, and instead of it being retaken it was turned into a new Empire that still has the alien that took it in the first place. They’ve been investing heavily in colonization efforts with the hopes of re-establishing their power before the gap between them and Shetou gets too big.

On the other hand Shetou is enjoying higher approval ratings since one of their own Val’Hari went along with the Song Clan. This has resulted in an influx of immigration from both Alnae and independent colonies by people who plan to join the colonization boom in the future. They have faith that Shetou is the stronger government for colonization efforts, while Valdir is the one in possession of the key to unlocking this push these immigrants aren’t exactly gung-ho to live next to alien xenomorphs on a day to day basis. That and the anti-valdir coverage by Sol Media isn’t hurting them.

The new Valdir Empire is rebuilding SR3 to their needs, a slow process but now the aliens aren’t in harvest mode. They’ve been replanting the forests so that they’ll have access to a constant stream of organic matter as it grows naturally on the planet, also to satisfy the desires of their more humanoid residents however few that may be right now. A lot of powerful factions are trying to negotiate and make deals with the new empire, but this is proving a slow process because its led by someone who really doesn’t seem to care that he runs an empire now.

Desoir in particular is making the biggest moves right now. Even before this they were building a really big ship, now it has a purpose they want to be ready for and so they have poured resources into accelerating its construction. Inevitably, they will be the first to construct a Sol Mothership. The planned 350 kilometer long ultra carrier plans to be renting out space to other colony groups to ferry them out to the next star.

Though to rival that in the publicized “lets build a big fucking thing” is the Sharen attempt to build Song Clan’s new flagship. While it was big news just for the fact that they were doing it, they made a lot of announcements to show off that they were doing it. Ship enthusiasts however have noted what Sharen is really showing off, they are building that thing fast. Their advanced shipyards are more powerful then any other in the system, they estimate they’ll have it done within a year. This is helping to inspire people that Shetou is the way to go for the future of colonization, and showing off that they can recover from their losses quickly to put pressure on Alnae’s losses.

And finally in the big fucking thing category, Valdir’s mothership is capable of moving again. It is still grounded but its tentacles are waggling. As a roundup, Valdir and Desoir are going to have gigantic ships, Shetou and Alnae will have fleets of smaller (though still large) one’s. Though all of this still hinges on a technology that has still not been discovered yet.

The Invasion Part 2

The Thousand Legends Part 2 <- update info comes after story


With the defeat of the alien swarm a new empire would rise to power by subjugating that alien. Led by the new emperor Indal, while its still a bit small to compare to the other two empires the resources it gained access to could prove capable of rapid expansion. Before the end of the event though, the data collected by the scientists seeking to defeat the alien had been distributed as they didn’t know they would be turning it into their new weapon. This has started an arms race within the other empires to develop technology for combating those aliens with the information they have on it.

Atop of this the alien’s themselves have become the subject of study for many people across the system. Most importantly are those trying to research what magic may have been used by them but little results have been made on that field by any other then Valdir due to lack of access to it.

Several people of power from around the system have been trying to arrange deals with Valdir for various purposes of research as well, results on that are ongoing. Though it is known to you directors that Siwa Technologies has been constructing weapons that are great at killing the aliens to sell to the scared masses. Other then that we haven’t gotten word from the little birds on what the others are trying to research or produce.

Yenneiros Whitetalon

During the battle some shit went down. In the aftermath Cerys Anahi has become plagued by strange PTSD episodes where she will suddenly zone out and start mumbling to herself about nonsense and walking around looking for dark spaces to hide in. Gheir has noticed if he just turns off the lights to whatever room she is in she’ll stop moving entirely and just stand there staring into the darkness for hours at a time. He’s come to the general conclusion that she’s no longer fit for employment as a mercenary but hasn’t told the suits about the situation yet. We only know because the directors have eyes everywhere.

Mordekai Aberhoff

The cults attempt to stay in contact with Exme has definitely helped to legitimize their presence as a bunch of psionic people in the public eye. During the invasion this played a critical role in keeping coverage on the event. Thanks to the cult’s work, recordings were able to be made of the battle as it transpired. This led to some mass panic within the system as those aliens were scary but also publicized the heroes work. Combined with recent media promoting discontent with the current status quo, this resulted in a lot of people picking up their stuff and heading out to SR3 to join the new empire during its fledgling and new phase in search of a new kind of life. Making the very sudden rise in power for the new empire partially ya’lls fault.

Though one member of the cult, one of the circle leaders, has started exhibiting strange behavior and likes to hide in dark places. Often inviting his whole circle to do so with him which has started to spread this symptom of potential truma to all members of his circle. It appears by being in constant contact with Exme during the events, they inherited some of the ptsd several veterans of the battle are suffering from.

Edric Vandross

Stocks for Hightower have gone up. With the recent interest in settler life thanks to some media, there is currently an arms race to stock up on colonization gear and ships. Good thing you got that shipyard, but as it is only so large you’ll have to decide whether to start producing colony ships or keep shadow refitting the pirate captures, or dropping a ton of money into the shipyard to rapid upgrade it.

While there aren’t many immediate targets of interest for colonization, aliens prove there is something out there. Now we have not only the concrete proof of that, but we have the living alien itself sitting in the system under the control of a group of people. Even if they aren’t co-operative in sharing its secrets, history proves that this is the beginning of inevitable progress towards new technology one way or another. Some longer lived races and factions are preparing for the day we travel to new stars.

Sethis Tyne

With the absence, and now death, of Toxyn the attempt to entrench for her return proves unnecessary as Jhaeros has since disappeared as well. Though Vaeri suspects he’ll be back once he finds that Vanjin came home.

Vanjin’s return has left her a bit tired out. She’s just been lazing around the base on the couch for the most part if she’s not sleeping on her ship.

The suits have a potential problem with Vanjin though, she’s famous now. Thanks to the Cult of Lucidity there is footage of her being pretty badass floating around the net. This could prove a valuable asset as now she is well known but also a potential detriment to stealth if improperly applied. As a half elf-troll she is almost immediately recognizable to the general public. In general a face mask would do well to hide her identity, but you may have other creative applications to her available fame.

Luci Serrano

As a long term witness to the destruction of SR3, Exme Faythe has become unstable in the way that only a shade does. She has stopped doing her job entirely, she has also stopped answering calls or coming in to the office. The nah division kept tabs on her as well as the cult of lucidity, she’s just been in her home with the lights out for days doing what appears to be nothing.

The attempt to hire people to rescue Exme proves a bit moot as she made her way back home on her own, albeit see above bits.

The mini update

Invasion part 2 is taking a bit to work on, and soome people were a bit late throwing things into the spreadsheet. This week requires your actions to be posted before monday or keep them minor as part 2 involves 30+ pages of stuff (so far). As it turns out arcanist takes a lot more effort to update then ascension, and ascension already took a lot. Though if you’re gonna forget to post anything, this is the week to do so as a lot is going on anyways.

Yenneiros Whitetalon

It actually proves pretty easy to find work right about now as a lot of rich people are concerned about their assets right now, there’s more work then you have personnel available to cover. Given the current panic not only about the alien but about the potential collapse of empires and all. Profits are up +15. The suits have been favoring contracts in raw resources like with SR1 since alien attacks and the potential collapse of governments means all currencies are in danger of “market changes”.

People are pretty sure Gheir is going to have the highest alien kill count by default since he already left to deploy with a platoon at them as opposed to taking security contracts where they may or may not show up. And since there are more jobs then can be handled, resources are too thin to send other squads at aliens.

Mordekai Aberhoff

Eventually a few psions who have known Exme show up for trying to contact her. Contacting her proves a somewhat sketchy thing overall though as she’s in the middle of an ongoing alien invasion and has a hard time focusing, but contact is achieved! She’s still on SR3 and didn’t evacuate, her nature as a shade left her too curious to leave with everyone else and she’s relatively difficult for them to eat so she’s been getting by.

Mhaldaru foods helps out with the refugee situation and stock value goes up a bit over the course of it due to the value of the brand name.

Edric Vandross

Raiders manage to steal some easy stuff and a few refugees disappear over the course of evacuation efforts of SR3’s moons. Conveniently this doesn’t leave much of a trail since people just assume the evacuated folk died on the planet.

Obviously the Setani based transfer will take a bit to do much with since she is away on alien business.

Sethis Tyne

Drug empire is doing fairly well, not because of grief stricken relatives or anything but because its the end of the damned world. So people opt for drugging out like elders with nothing to worry about shortening their lifespan.

Orders have been deployed for Vanjin (and Setani from mezzy) to try and get that toxyn bitch while on the mission.

Luci Serrano

I’m 90% sure you put that party in super late because the last time i worked on the last update your final words were “sparkle”. Though the party goes fine enough, it doesn’t quite reach the expected turnout due to the ongoing alien crisis and Exme is still on SR3.

You acquire some web news resources.

Meanwhile the mining facilities are almost operational and minor mining has begun.

The Invasion part 1

SR3 has fallen to the alien completely, all ships in orbit were destroyed. Space stations became high speed space debris circling the planet and its moons have seen smaller clusters of aliens spread across their surface. It consumes and destroys everything it comes across. Alnae cannot figure out how to kill the swarms thanks to every failed excursion being unable to report back before disappearing. All attempts to communicate with it have failed and interplanetary missiles have been launched. Because all communication has been cut off with the destruction of every relay around the planet and the alien’s own ability to mess with scrying, they have no idea if the missiles have even done anything at all. Desoir has pressured Shetou into at least sending barrages of interplanetary warheads toward the planet as well. Jaal’Darya has been paid off to launch every conceivable biological and chemical weapon they can at the place but still no scouts have managed to get a visual or even a scan and report back.

After four weeks, efforts have begun focusing on defense in case it moves to the next planet, Rixa-Thenica is the nearest one to SR3. Alnae, Shetou, Desoir, and Madhammer have started stepping up recruitment to build massive armies to prepare to deal with the situation. The political situation has become tense, with the loss of SR3 Alnae has been dealt a crippling blow since SR3 was acting as their new capital and had the bulk of their military forces. Shetou’s Sharen fleet is now hovering around Rixa-Thenica with claims to help repel the alien invasion but they aren’t moving towards SR3, just staying around Thenica. Alnae is trapped between two enemies, if they send all their remaining forces to fight at SR3 then Shetou’s forces will have an opening to end the Alnae Empire’s existence and strike at Thenica itself, if they even choose to wait for that opening.

Shetou has concerned itself with the preparation of its forces for the defense of Zonaricht-Thenica in case it hops planes and hits the capital of humanoids, that or the assault of Alnae on Thenica. They don’t seem to want to charge in to SR3 to confront the mothership, even if Laesaaria Val’hari argues that they should the other house leaders refuse to do so except for House Song and House Sarghess. Though Song has mysteriously chosen not to go charging into it immediately and Sarghess won’t go alone. It seems that the alien has created an opening for the centuries of war between empires to end very suddenly and because of this both are somewhat frozen in place and while they are visibly readying for war with the alien neither are making a further move besides long range missiles.

Oddyssey 1 part 1

Yenneiros Whitetalon

Madhammer has begun to increase its recruitment efforts. However, Colonel Gheir and his platoon were approached by an unknown female demon. Afterward, Gheir stopped paying attention to sorting out new recruits. He picked up Baudelaire, Anahi, and several literal tons of military supplies, the most elite members of Madhammer, and flew off to SR2 leaving a note. They’d gotten a gig to deal with the alien. He didn’t stick around to see if his bosses would approve or not, but at least he was nice enough to leave a note explaining he was going to head out to a strike team that was launching in four days instead of waiting for the turtle strategy. The rookie who last saw him reported he left aboard the Dragon’s Reach in good spirits, saying that there was no time for preparation and paperwork anymore. The business suits note he really should have talked to some superiors before going, but he did take a lot of Madhammer stuff with him that has the logos painted on. Instead of trying to reprimand the merc, the suits have decided these are dire times and instead they would prepare a PR campaign around Gheir as if to say “hey we did something” to improve the company’s value to make up for the potential loss of all that equipment.

The battlefort division has been prepped for deployment, and then abducted by Gheir and Song clan out of seemingly nowhere. Technical deployment achieved. Suits aren’t really happy with the sudden absconding with the company’s newest assets along with a lot of their old expensive ones, though William Roberts is savvy enough to lead the corporate board through maximizing what they can off the situation instead of trying to recover. Generally when hotheaded mercs go rogue like that there isn’t much a guy in a suit can do to tell them to turn around, so instead Roberts focuses on getting the most positive spin possible out of the situation.

Mordekai Aberhoff

Nib assures you all of his systems are designed to meet all safety regulations for the employees. And the big one aren’t even turned on until after hours anyways so what is there to worry about?

The app is rated decently but fails to draw a lot of traffic due to the premise not being spectacularly appealing. Its a bit too messagey and competes with a flood of similar apps from around the system that are just cute and cartoony, much easier to draw the eye to when the game design itself isn’t all that stand-out. Its only slightly below average in popularity but average is not so great at drawing in tons of people.

Spokesperson of the cult isn’t too hard, you just pick one at random who matches the profile. All cult circle leaders are charismatic in their own way as they are able to recruit people to a weird hippy cult in the first place. Zex Rirug.

Mhaldaru foods’ own CEO has started focusing on providing food to relief efforts for the flood of refugees from SR3. The suits in back are looking into said famous master chef and better machinery though the machines weren’t exactly sub-par to begin with.

Freer is a weird word. Anyways yeah they start working on that.


Edric Vandross

About 75% the personnel on SR3 made it to a ship and got their way to SR1, the other 25% were closer to the alien and were never heard from. Judging by the survivors witness testimony, they’re probably dead.

SV3’s space station is easily invested in, given the current duress of the alien invasion money to keep building isn’t really questioned all that much. With the stated goals delivered by Fred, they’re ready to roll even if far away from the crisis they suspect it will grow and SV3 will have its share of refugees. The following weeks in which SR3 would be completely consumed focus would shift due to the moons not being as pressured and more people evacuating from there.

The Raiders have suddenly gone AWOL. Ikesha, Gellix, and Jezraema are left sitting on the Nothic while Halaestra and Setani suddenly disappeared with Ikesha’s smaller frigate. She reported the disappearance of the two heavy hitters, but she was unceremoniously punched into a wall when they absconded together with the frigate leaving most of the crew behind on the Nothic. It was hard to stop those two in particular and they took the ship very quickly. Suffice to say the hunt for the stealth ship is a bit hampered.

Yes Sharen can outfit a ship cheaper then build a new one. Though they are drow experts in ships, there is the ever present paranoia that Sharen would be able to still track the ship after outfitting it. But their shipyards for all intents and purposes will happily take your money to fix up a ship with stealth tech.

Selona proves hard to contact these past few weeks. Even Sophia doesn’t know whats going on over there. The alien attack hit Alnae’s biggest project, which means it was also Selona’s biggest project. They seem to be dealing with problems on that front.

Sethis Tyne

Vanjin left a note saying they went to go fight aliens after some old guy contacted her. On the upside the Toxyn problem has stopped being a problem in the meantime. It seems Toxyn has lost interest in you with the recent alien arrival. Vaeri thinks whatever just recruited Vanjin just recruited Toxyn as well.

Luci Serrano

Fortunately Sol Media has footage of the alien arrival thanks to Exme being able to survive its landing. Unfortunately contact with her was cut off when all the satellites and relays were destroyed that cut off contact for everyone else. The last she was heard from, Exme was watching the alien patterns up close since they have a hard time hurting her. This proves useful though as Sol Media has the last footage to leave the planet and Exme sent the most up-close shots. The flip side of this is that footage is horrifying and incites panic.

The studio starts working on a settlier life series, though it’ll be a bit before it comes out with its first season.

What’s everyone up to?

Financial Report is in.

Stories of Lore 5

Yenneiros Whitetalon

Cerys Anahi has undergone full military training to compliment her armed resistance experience and now works as a corporal for madhammer within Gheir’s Regiment. +1/+2 to base stats from training.

William Roberts continues to work on securing contracts for Madhammer to increase profits overall. Not that much to write about as no one cares about the fine art of contracting and schmoozing.

Gheir recently trained with the Raiders of Abbathor to help them figure out how to take ships. Since then he’s been lurking around headquarters waiting for the next big gig as his regiment tends to just break apart and do small jobs until his command position is required. That and he makes enough to just take it easy until then.

Metal finish being sold off from the SR1 payment. +46,000,000

William Roberts seals some deals. +3 profit.

Faye is still working as security around the factories.

Nib continues to build dangerously experimental defense systems and seems to try a little too hard to make them undetectable, as if he were trying to entice people to try and rob the place so he can see if they work as desired.

Ragas is going to college.

Fred is continually working on schmoozing around Alnae and the SZ4  colony project to get in closer to the project on the ground level. Though he does all of this over comms because he’d rather not go stand around in a frozen wasteland if he can avoid it.

Gellix is still with the pirates and just kind of hanging out, he’s a basic crewmember and hasn’t really found any way to stand out. Though he still pulls his weight just fine, just remains unremarkable next to the three crazy bitches.

Halaestra continues to plan and direct the Raider’s general missions. Her notoriety is growing faster then Setani’s purely because Halaestra was already a known name and her pandem monstrosity tends to make it really easy to tell a horror story about how you lost your ship to some pirates rather then explaining that some overpowered demon bitch slapped you.

Jezraema still mostly follows around Ikesha with little else to do given that she is still technically property and really doesn’t have much else to go to anyways.

Ikeshia remains the pilot of the secondary ship and is still as quiet as ever. Most of the focus of the crew has been on Halaestra and Setani.

Setani has been an active force in taking ships but she and Halaestra’s positions are somewhat clunky. Though Setani has been declared Admiral, Halaestra is the one who calls most of the shots since she knows what she is doing and has her ship. They don’t get along spectacularly well.

Construction on the asteroid base has begun.

The raiders still haven’t high-rolled into finding a stealth cruiser.

There aren’t many other new ongoing colonization projects other then the raw expansion of the existing ones on the various planes. Suits predicted that the upcoming first contact may lead to interstellar colonization projects, something Desoir has been known to already be looking into and even sent people in stasis towards stars already just on the off chance they don’t beat them there somehow.

Divinity Vaults Profits +4
Hightower Industries profits + 3
Pirates Profit dice +3
Solvang Membership fees increased to 1.3m due to new ship and crew expansion

Sethis Tyne

The “batman trio” has been hanging out together a lot in the pursuit of Toxyn, though that has become more and more complicated as time goes on. Toxyn still uses the same general tactics of randomly appearing and messing stuff up, though pinpointing her locations and methods reveals no particular pattern.

Madhammer doesn’t have much in the ways of new guns for the sniper teams. They aren’t weapon’s producers so much as users. Siwa Technologies and Selona are the major players in the field of fancier guns, with Siwa specializing more towards big mech and vehicle weapons though.

Kala sets up the intel department, consulting with Vaeri for a lot of the infrastructure.

The shipyard isn’t really blackmailable, its a small indie shipyard at the neutral world of SV3. It hasn’t really even had the opportunity to create dirt to dig up, which is why its easy and inexpensive to invest in it in the first place. At best some of the current owners have peculiar vices but SV3 is a world built on that so not much going on there.

In the quest for a fancy stealth cruiser there area few options on the market end. House Sharen produces the best in this regard with no real competition, cruisers capable of cloaking from every possible spectrum and highly mobile. But they cost upwards of 50 million. Selections from less specialized manufacturers fall into the 20 million range and often have a spectrums they aren’t perfectly cloaked against. The most common being a weakness to being found by anyone who can detect Incarnum Essentia from the ranges that space operates in as this is the most difficult thing to hide and obviously if you have people on board then you have it. On the upside, people who can detect that are rare and the only people known to be able to do it work for the Song Clan.

Black Market profits +6

Luci Serrano

Bill Chekov works on the musical project, taking in market data and hiring writers to produce the rough draft of the script and begin casting. The other suits prefer to keep working on the news station angle of things. Bill is now pitching an idea for a running series to air on the same domain as the news station to expand Sol Media into a channel as well. He never stops pitching ideas. His argument is that the big money that draws investors is to invest in a big company rather then a news station. Thus by expanding the amount of crap Sol Media is involved in the larger it gets as a company and also the more windfall it has if something it tries doesn’t go well. Of course this suggestion is a lil out of place given that he’s shotgunning ideas of expansion which could all “not go well”.

Lusheria is involved in the musical and has taken time off touring, though maintains a SolTube channel to keep relevant with her fans.

Exme continues to travel around looking for interesting news stories, as well as assigning the others to various places of interest. She herself is currently at SR3 looking into the general feelings people have about the idea of first contact coming soon.


Alnae viewership ratings and trust in the news is based a lot on government approval of it. Average civilians can’t call the AIC whenever they want but government employees can, so when the mayor says something is true or untrue people tend to be swayed by that since (in their minds) that authority figure likely has access to the AIC.

Approaching the government doesn’t go all that well as to them you’re just another news station. They aren’t exactly hostile to the idea but the secretary is paid to be polite and pleasant. As far as the suits can tell, they aren’t really interested in working directly with a news organization. This likely, again, ties into the AIC’s network.

As for smaller news companies, could always “sponsor” some SolTubers and web blogs though if they’re small enough to acquire they aren’t terribly relevant on the large scale to you yet.

Sol Media Profits +8
Sol Records profits +5
Lusheria Profits +1
Sol Mining expenses -8



Oh and there are aliens now. Happy new year. Update clocks in at 5 minutes after their arrival.
