                                Suspicions continue to rise in the interstellar community, following a new round of accusations between the warring nations; this time voiced by concerned citizens directly to capsuleer populations in two systems. Startling new claims were made, fuelling further tension and adding more confusion to the already complex international situation. Last Tuesday evening, pilots in the Perimeter and Luminaire systems were hailed over local comms by citizens of their respective nations, each of them pressing [...]

                                  A recent meeting between Chemal Tech and Eifyr & Co. officials has raised suspicion in the wider interstellar community, sparking renewed concern and inviting a fresh round of conspiracy theories about the shady Krusual-backed Eifyr. The meeting itself appeared innocuous enough on the surface; a small gathering of representatives discussing mutually beneficial research and development agreements – the likes of which happen all the time between the Federation and Republic. The Krusual tribe however, [...]

The reason the talks were kept secret, the statement says, is that “neither the Empire nor its mandate wanted to give opportunistic hatemongers a reason to incite violence in protest of peaceful communication.” The Governor issued his statement after several meetings with [...]

                                            With the debate over the succession still ongoing in the Empire, the Tash Murkon family called a short press conference to extend their opinion on the ongoing debate, one which they apparently feel affects their house greatly. Taridor Khiknizi spoke for house Tash Murkon and went on to say: "While we acknowledge and respect the views of the other Royal Houses, this Royal House is strongly against the racial implications of allowing only True Amarr to decide the next championship.

The reports confirm a growing trend of support amongst the space bound class, and points towards an increasingly relaxed stance from all factions towards their rising independence. Just one example out of many is Siri Blue, a Gallente who has joined an elite group of capsuleers held in the [...]

The debacle began when Holder Keraci was overheard by visiting Kor-Azor courtiers as he told his wife that Aritcio Kor-Azor is ‘‘not fit to be Heir and belongs in a damn mental institution for his new regulations and sanctions.’’ When Aritcio heard word of what was being said on Liparer II he ordered that every Holder and his family on the planet would be stripped of his fine robes and dressed [...]

The grisly remains of the victim, whom had been missing for a week were found in his quarters and whilst the exact cause of death is still under question, it has been reported that he was tortured over an extended period of time.

CVA had declared war on Imperial Order following a succession of incidents in the former's space that led IO to join forces with U'K but this appeared not enough to stem the tide.

Hundreds of people had gathered at Liorren Square, the city’s most populous locale, to protest the Republic Parliament’s actions in recent weeks and the rule of Prime Minister Karin Midular.
