NEWS of the UNION OF HOLY ROSHIAN REPUBLICS
2068.4.23 2E

Frederick Pabst-Puchin, Grand Kommissar of the Union of Holy Roshian Republics, has publicly reprimanded Information Kommissar Viktur Chirnov for his failure to deliver the Full Report and Order Of Battle of the Army of the UHRR as promised. This does not bode well for the Kommissar's career.

People on paper, nation in newsprint.

The UHL announced that the next production run of ThBd-44 heavy transport aircraft will be available for the first time for international export. According to a statement from First Winged General Jaress Dughre, the aircraft are "profoundly reliable machines", and thereby "ripe for sale abroad".

A reliable source has claimed that the United Holdings are currently seeking trade agreements with two neighboring nations, the Tithe Empire and the state of Hubris. Terms are unclear, but are speculated to include fixed rules on tariffs, and mutual protection of waterways in the event of piratical activity. No official word from the Bureau of Trade has confirmed such a proposal at this time.

*Roll on 1940s style news reader*

Sadist Canables Talk to Tihe Empire Diplomats
After a spate of brutal murderous killings and kinappings of our brave research scientists and soldiers a form of communication has been establisted with the punk canables of Dun.

The rudermetary hand signal langugue with accompinying grunts and feral calls known as Glassgen has been broken into by our brave diplomats seeking talks under the icey surface near the rim.

These dank smelly tunnels lit by electical arc, and covered with the filth of centuries is a fortifed realm of death and decay into which Geert Hammon lead diplomat desended to talk with a Warlord leader known Klun the New as Mr. Hammon was shown into a throne room lit in the earrie blue electical light and shown dancers and slaves of his new empire at 'The Gate'.

Klun, with his body tatooed with red arcs and maces, with a wild mane of red hair, showed off his martial process in a gladitorail battle before ripping apart the deceased gladiators chest to eat the unfortunates still warm liver. In a diplomatic gesture Mr. Hammon was offered this meal too to which he took part in a move to unite the peoples in peace.

With much time talks were establised with Klun eager to explore this new world, with the offer of warbands to strike the Tihe enemies down, in exchange to keep what they kill.

Talks are still in progress with a second lord; Kommada Errg who offers to connect his regions to Shreal with a high speed transit network, and a supply of gradite for a fee of knowledge and our healthy dead.

It appears apparent that several such warlords exsit under the ice, and only those near the surface have yet to speak with our representatives. The nature of those other warlords is unknown.

Also today a film reel depicting one of the early raids was released under some government censor, enclosed under a blue frizzy dome roughtly 30m in diameter a hidious squad of Dun charged a line of our troops. The energy field can clearly be seen to slow projectile fire such that it can be bashed aside as easy as a thrown ball.

At about 5m projectile fire is of sufficent speeds to penitrate human flesh, and the first couple of barbarians can be seen to fall under the volley, however inspection during the raid showed that these were seemingly only light flesh wounds as would be inflicted by a weapon such as a throwing knife. They are still capable of wounding Dun slaver-cannibles and it is public advice if under attack in this nature to save shots until extreme close range.

As can be seen near the end of the footage, wounded and dead alike on both sides are loaded onto ramshakle treaded bikes and driven off across the snow.

We are warning the public that encounters with these people are extremely dangerous and should not be attempted. With time a method of placation or protection for our few men and women in the field will be found. Until then, as always the cities are safe from the weather, and these new subterrianian natives.

Outlander News
2068.04.12 2E

Headlines
Today Grand Tech'n Soren Binar announced that trade ministers were seeking to finalise details on an archaeotech export initiative with the Unified Laanic Holdings. Rumours suggest a similar deal is being negotiated with Khaelas'ar, which also allows Khaelas'ar to export a percentage of everything they are sold in return for providing transport.

High Marshal Victor L. Masse also confirmed that the UHL were seeking a mutual defense pact for territory bordering both nations. Masse would not confirm or deny any other details, saying it was a matter of security.

A week ago a momentous find was made in Vault, and at that time we were unable to report on what, in fact, it was. Now that the veil of secrecy has lifted we can reveal that it was a fragment from a First Era journal, written in what appears to the ancestor language of High Ksali. It is currently unknown whether this might be a simple personal log, or part of a great document. More news as it is released.

Local News
Anatoly Bane, the reclusive chief Pyromancer of the Wastelanders was purportedly seen in World's End two days ago. It is unknown at this time as to whether this has any relation to the 'lights' seen by certain members of the population, or the suggestion that there may be another expedition across the Great Gap.

Speculation and mystery still surrounds the dig project in southern Hubris, and no information has been forthcoming, either from the Wastelanders or the Acadaemia.

Following a disturbing report of barbaric and cannibal activity (albeit a report which has now been reported as fake), researchers are studying past cases of widespread cannibalism and it's effects on mental and physical health.

Khaelas'ar Weekly Roundup

Headlines

Grand Ambassador Ve'Urru Doana has announced that diplomatic teams are in deliberations regarding a treaty with the Hubrisan diplomats. The agreement, though yet to be named, would be a multi-national coalition with interests in supporting and defending waterway trade and security.

One named roadblock thus far was the idea that Khaelas'ar would have to give up their otherwise tithed waterways. Ambassador Doana has agreed to allow the alliance members free passage, but thus far staunchly refuses to give up tithing non-participating nations. The very fact that the Khaelas'ar's considerable navy would likely be the coalition's greatest military asset was used as leverage to keep the tithes.
  • "Fuel isn't free. If we are expected to play the largest role in defending our southern waters, it is the honorable thing to do to allow us to continue our age-old methods of helping pay for our nation's extensive fuel consumption." - Grand Logistician Ve'Emani Vulpea

Also in the news, the Second Grand Expedition was put on a standby status for the first time after a decade, in response to the recent (debunked) international headline of cannibals attacking the Tihe Empire. Whether or not this means that the nation of Khaelas'ar is eagerly jumping for an opportunity to wage war it isn't known, but our nation's warriors have gone a long time without full-fledged battle, and the Clans seem to be growing tired of fighting only one another...

Supreme Leader A'Te'Haera Khaelas assures the surrounding nations that the mobilization of warriors was only a precaution.
  • "Khaelas'ar is not a nation that will stand idle while innocent men and women suffer. Let the other nations of the Disk take note that it was Khaelas'ar that was ready to defend the Tihe first. Let them make note of this the next time they make accusations that our waterway tithes are too great..." - Supreme Leader Khaelas

Local News

Excavation efforts on Setena Peak continue unabated.

More and more of the construct is discovered, but there seems to be no end. Already, geologists are estimating that the enormous construct must be buried more than a kilometer into the mountain, though only a scant fifty meters has been uncovered so far, five years after the discovery.
  • "I must remind the clanlords of Khaelas'ar that we are excavating the artifact as quickly as we can. Our seemingly slow progress is not due to any lack of hard work or diligence, it is simply due to the care we must take not to damage the artifact in some way before it is fully uncovered." - Landmistress Ve'Anala Rekuvia
