    Gambling as a pastime has continued to grow across the cluster and is finding increasing popularity amongst capsuleers as a result. More and more so-called “gambling dens” are being set up by this elite class in areas where there is no legislation to govern them or regulators to monitor their activities. Most commonly, this has taken the form of private fluid router networks. There are countless arrangements of this type, rendering it effectively impossible for the more questionable establishments to [...]

    • YC109-12-19

      Sosala - For the past several weeks The Bleak Lands has been the victim of numerous raids which have targeted and disrupted trade routes and ambushed Amarr Navy patrols throughout the region. The Navy themselves have to date been quick to downplay the effectiveness of the attacks, and to assure the public that the re-appearance of the Defiants was contained and of minimal concern. A few days ago Lieutenant Joshua Epaphras, Capsuleer liason for the 7th Fleet, had this to say: "The situation in The [...]

          Yulai - At a CONCORD press conference held earlier today, the official nomenclature of the recently opened regions - commonly called "the drone regions" by the general capsuleer populace - was announced. Speculation had been rife regarding the delays in announcing the names following the landmark decision by CONCORD to solicit the capsuleer community in the naming process. Commander Nakuyama, the official in charge of the naming committee, used the conference as an opportunity to apologize for the [...]

          • YC109-12-18

            Sosala - Reports are just filtering in of a large scale fleet assault on the Saracens central defense cortex in The Bleak Lands. The region was beset with numerous small raids prior to the main attack focusing on targets of opportunity in what now looks like an attempt to draw away elements of the 7th Fleet, spreading their forces out thinly. This was followed by a seemingly large, direct fleet assault on the Saracens central defense cortex. A typical Amarrian central defense cortex performs many [...]

After that completion we will have reached our main objectives for this phase of the operation.” The 7th Fleet’s [...]

              Supposedly 'worthless' gas clouds hold potential

              • YC109-12-06

                Professor Gallus Sabathia, a researcher for the University of Caille, has recently released his findings on the gas clouds found in the Elerelle constellation. The clouds, according to the professor, contain a number of degenerate gases related to the cytoserocins found in rarer gas clouds. These degenerate gases resemble, in many ways, the waste materials produced in out-dated booster production. The waste materials aren't of much use on their own, but with the proper additional ingredients and [...]

The Navy Logistics Base at Sahtogas in particular has seen a marked increase in the traffic of heavy industrial ships over the last few days. It would appear that the officers and crews of the Fleet, dubbed "The Saracens" after their charismatic Admiral, are serious about enforcing [...]
