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:

(Octavius Core Station) Pilot Aeghwhyn, the founder of squad Independence, has been selected as this year’s Phalera Maxima Award winner. This award, which is in just its second year, is voted upon by the citizens of Octavius. Last year’s winner was Clanlord. Aeghwhyn won this year receiving 40% of the vote. Other significant vote-getters included Algore, Amananthy and _RAZAAR_.
“There seemed to be a bit of confusion this year,” said one official responsible for tabulating the votes. “We had people voting twice, we had non-Octs voting and we had votes cast after the deadline. But whether you counted just the qualifying votes or counted all of the votes, Aeghwhyn was the winner either way — so there’s no disputing the result.”
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.
(Cinatus) Cinatus will once again host this year’s Feast of the Fallen holiday, which runs from 120.5.22 through 120.5.24. Although this year’s space-based activities will be limited, Emperor Cineon will lead the Recitation of Heroes in Outpost Station sector once again.
