On 120.6.19, pilots reported unusual spawns in GVB . . .
. . . and then an GBS-gate infestation disappeared in front of them without them launching a missle!
There were suggestions that Lithium could be involved . . . so who knows . . . but my sources say Aeghwhyn and DUBERANGER will be receiving Flux Buster patches for scaring-off an infestation with their mere presence.
the news . . . reconsidered
While the Cerulean Clouds Ore Depot cries out to KTRI of its chilling contents as a result of Edgar Reece Industries’ (E.R.I.) latest community outreach endeavor, Mining Madness Mondays, Octavius Core bulges with biomass from the economic gauntlet thrown down by Optimus clanlord.
I managed to get a candid interview with one of clanlord’s underlings, the mining drone of -=DSRG=- assigned to Octavius Core, who revealed their operating territory and methods:
the news . . . reconsidered
Octavius Core is humming along to open this year’s Feast on the Fallen with last year’s Phalera Maxima winner coordinating Maul production in anticipation of the next Conflux spawning season or infestation plot. The old man clanlord himself was seen goosing production workers to move them a little faster. It is to be noted, the profits are best when distributing from production centers.
Emperor Cineon is scheduled for a moment of peak vulnerability at the opening ceremony, particularly given the cold shoulder he’s given Empress Iulia. Is that why one of the Gent clones managed to escape?
Nessos of The Brotherhood is suddenly concerned about the welfare of the station pilots in The Dark, after projecting his consciousness into the poor husk. Every operation has loose lips, will that ship sink before next week’s flux-off?
Remember, readers, in these trying times there is always Light at the Gateway of your Heart. Fly Safe.
(UUNN HQ) According to TRI-SEC, one of the three “Gent clones” has been captured and remanded to Oct Core Security. The ship was downed by pilot Aion with assistance from Kefla. Aion will be receiving 1mm credits for the capture and pilot GrimGriz will be receiving 500k credits for information he provided to the bounty hunters.
TRI-SEC also said it is currently negotiation to have medals awarded for those responsible for capturing the clones.
(Hyperial Station) Sources on Hyperial Station indicate that Assistant Dockmaster Lev Rinrhys was found guilty of taking bribes in the form of “personal favors” in exchange for accepting, and paying-for, contraband Quantar Equipment. His execution by HSS has been scheduled for 120.5.2 at 03:00 UTC.
*****IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT *****
The TRI Pilot Support System (jumpgate-tri.org) will be undergoing maintenance until 120.3.2 and will be unavailable during this time.
