Alterion RazorsKiss, of squad FluxGuts, announces
The First Annual Samwise Memorial Fluxhunt!
(Octavius Core) Pilot samwise, of squad New Dawn, was a wingmate of former New Dawn CAG RazorsKiss, and remains in #2 on the current all-time flux kills leaderboard (post-Catastrophe). He passed away on 116.11.28, but his love for fluxing competitions was well-known to his friends and squadmates. It is hoped that this event will be a fitting tribute and legacy to his steadfast defense against the Conflux, his example to us all as a pilot and friend, and to his legendary service record for New Dawn, Solrain, and TRI.
This competitive flux-hunting event will begin at 17:00 UTC on 118.1.26 – and end at 05:00 UTC on 118.2.4. Entries will be automatically selected from the Flux Kills rankings on JSR – and any interested pilot not on that list may submit a screen capture of their pilot page to enter, at or after 17:00 UTC on 118.1.26.

(Quantar Core) While Hyperial has remained stone-silent, Quantar has been openly celebrating the destruction of the Rauder-1 drone jump-ship. The Holy Office of the Tahirs has just released the following statement:
Farishaba ‘at Hamalzah! Today we honor Valmagier, a highly-decorated Solrain Optimus, who successfully destroyed the Hyperial drone jump-ship Rauder-1 in Inner Cloud. Admittedly he struggled with the decision whether to destroy this ship or to report its location to our enemy. But Hamalzah was good and led our brother Hammer-BS to the location as well — which crystallized the decision for Valmagier.
For his efforts, Valmagier will receive the highest award we give to otherworlders — Quantar’s Flame. We hope he wears this as proudly as he wears his many other commendations. In addition, Valmagier will received the promised rewards of 20 millions credits and a CM-4 . . . as well as out most sincere thanks and deepest blessings.
And we would be remiss if we did not recognize Hammer-BS for his part in this as well. He is a loyal brother who works tirelessly for the good of Quantar … and for all. It was his presence that was ultimately the catalyst for the destruction of Rauder-1. Therefore, we are honored to present him with the Quantar’s Flame medal as well. Shalim, Brother!
(Quanus) The Holy Office of the Tahirs has released the following statement regarding the Hyperial Rauder-1 drone ship that has gone missing for about a week.
The Hyperial Government has been pursuing an obviously-secretive agenda since before the beginning of the year. There have been Faction Missions with no explanation for their purpose. Then suddenly they announce they have developed a drone jump-ship. History has demonstrated that no good could possibly come of this.
Now Hyperial has asked everyone to help search for their drone and has offered a reward for assistance. Quantar, too will as for assistance — both from its own pilot population and any others who would want to join. We call for the destruction of the Rauder-1 drone, and will happily offer:
- 20 million credits
- an artifact of your choice from the following: PCS-2, PCS-3 or CM-4
- the Quantar’s Flame medal
In order to receive this award, you must send a screen shot of the kill message to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Based on the Hyperial search request, you should focus your efforts in the following sectors: Main Gate, Inner Cloud and The Reaches.
(Quantar Core) The Office of the Tahirs has released the following statement regarding the recent Hyperial Faction Missions.
Hyperial has now had two missions with no explanations about the reasons for either. First it was a call to support “upcoming R&D projects.” Then another was run close on its heels to “finish a critical R&D project.” Yet not a word on what the project is.
The two projects combined consumed 2000 units of Conflux Biomass, 1000 units of Chemicals, 3000 units of Copper, 500 units of Electronics, 2000 units of Fiber Optics, 1000 units of Medical Supplies and 1500 units of Synthetics.
Many of these items are in short supply and had to be manufactured for the mission, depleting important supplies available to the other factions. None of this appears to be for regular Hyperial manufacturing. And yet no one questions the purpose.
We call upon Hyperial to show our suspicions to be paranoia. Make public the nature of your “R&D Projects.”
The tempest waits for Hamalzah’s call.
Squad -=DSRG=- has announced that it is looking to acquire 100 PC-UC12 artifacts in order to create a fleet of “repair drones.” Between 117.2.1 and 117.2.28 (or later if necessary), –=DSRG=- will be paying 3 million credits per unit for UC12s. They are also providing additional incentive by offering special compensation to the top three suppliers: an AB4 for the top supplier; and AB3 for the second-highest supplier; and an EB3 for the third-place supplier.
Magnetic Storage Container
Collection of the UC12s will take place at Octavius Outpost Station, where they may be turned-in to the DSRG-r-OP drone for the 3 million compensation.
UC-12s are pre-collapse artifacts found in Magnetic Storage Containers.
Pilot Clanlord, leader of -=DSRG=- should be contacted directly for additional information.
EDITOR’S NOTE: It was pointed out to us that the UC-12 is typically found in a “blue” Magnetic Storage Container. The image in the article is from a stick photo and, unfortunately, we do not have a blue one to include here.
The following notice was received from pilot Clanlord. We are publishing it at his request.
A little while ago i had a conversation with professor A.ShaiDen concerning the recent discoveries made in regards to Amanath .(see tri news reports from dates 116.1.8 and 116.1.15). Since then all news regarding these discoveries have stopped from TRI resources so i believe it a good idea to get things moving again via the way of a non TRI organized event.
Professor ShaiDen showed a real interest in what might be found in the Canis sector and it piqued my own personal interest. So i hereby ask pilots to join me in an effort to find out more by doing a couple of artifact prospecting runs in that sector this Sunday 116.2.7
I will plan 3 runs at various times so that all pilots are able to attend at one point or the other. Pilots should arrive ready and equipped for artifact acquisition (Insight/Displacer/Rotacol -equipped ) and please leave the Rangers at home since it is a high flux sector. Antiflux-capable ships will be more productive there since we are not all great fluxers 🙂 So please use HM or tows instead, similar speed and plenty of cargo capacity.
All DSS found will be turned-in to Professor A.ShaiDen for examination (they will be stored at a DSRG facility until pick-up arrangements can be made)
The staging area will be Fort McGee in the Gyre sector.
Assemble at staging area at 0830 UTC logging pilots and assigning point will take approx 15 minutes. Departure to Canis will be at 0845 UTC. Arrival in sector and start of run: 0900 UTC untill 1100 UTC. After this we will return to Fort McGee
Assemble at staging area at 1330 UTC logging pilots and assigning point will take approx 15 minutes. Departure to Canis will be at 1345 UTC. Arrival in sector and start of run: 1400 UTC untill 1600 UTC. After this we will return to Fort McGee
Assemble at staging area at 1900 UTC logging pilots and assigning point will take approx 15 minutes. Departure to Canis will be at UTC. Arrival in sector and start of run: 1930 UTC untill 2130 UTC. After this we will return to FortMcGee
I am hoping for an interesting day and loads of good finds of course anything else we pull out of the sector is finders keepers
P.S If the resident swarmbusters could keep the area clear of swarms for the day it would be greatly appreciated
The following information was received from pilot Hifly of squad -=MACK2=-:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tonight, to help combat the current sentient incursions and with the aid of Sinver the bait, hifly3 placed a publicly open poss in DC. It will be stocked with ff’s, nukes and missiles over the next few days, Please feel free to dock to either wait for the sentients to show up, restock or as a bolt hole if you get trapped in sector by infestations.
Sinver did sterling work keeping a number of Phocs and Nauts off of hifly3 so he could maintain the correct clearances to place the poss. The poss is placed 16k from the Gurge gate.
