          • YC114-12-13

            In an unusual occurrence in the afternoon of December 13th, a number of individuals throughout New Eden were suddenly accosted by snowball -throwing capsuleers. This unusual group of capsuleers would suddenly appear in a system, declaring their quest for "good snowball fights". After a few brief exchanges of snowballs launched from the newly distributed Festival Launchers, the capsuleers - spouting off nonsense about "Sansha Claus" and his Revenant pulled by 9 Nightmares - would vanish just as [...]

              • YC114-12-05

                CONCORD's Department of Press Relations yesterday announced that following several days of intense discussion, the Inner Circle has fast-tracked a legislative proposal that's lain dormant within the CONCORD legislature for just under a year. Proposal 4457.051, otherwise known as The Retribution Act, is a bill with wide-ranging implications for capsule pilots, and apparently stands to change quite a few things about how they engage in combative pursuits. In the words of the statute, "with the ever- [...]

                    Tibus Heth, Executor of the Caldari State, has been shot by an unknown assailant at a Provist political rally in the major metropolis of Okushin on New Caldari Prime.

Martial law has been declared in the greater Okushin area, with planetwide security measures [...]

                      Placid - The city of Rilnais lies in ruin this morning after a surprise attack by the Serpentis Corporation late last night. Close to the equator of Evaulon VII, the city was well known in the Federation for its astonishing growth over the last two decades, due to its close proximity to a highly profitable agricultural installation owned and operated by Combined Harvest. Serpentis and Guardian Angel forces, along with a contingent of Capsuleers from known Serpentis loyalist organization the Coreli [...]

Upon arrival, the two began receiving intelligence from spies which had infiltrated inhabited planets and [...]

                          PLACID REGION - Early last night, distorted distress calls began filtering out from the severely damaged city of Rilnais on Evaulon VII. Rilnais's inhabitants had been locked in their homes for over 24 hours due to a poisonous gas cloud emanating from silos on the outskirts of the city which had been damaged in a ground troop attack of unknown origin or motive the day before. The calls, picked up by capsuleers on several comms frequencies, warned of the presence of the criminal organization Serpentis, [...]

                            PLACID REGION - Several reports have surfaced that a small ground troop offensive of unknown origin this afternoon took place on the Gallente planet of Evaulon VII.

                              The Caldari State and the Minmatar Republic have enacted new security measures in the wake of a recent spate of pirate attacks against planets within their respective domains. Late last month, the systems of Oddelulf and Bogelek in the Molden Heath region of Minmatar space saw two coordinated planetary strikes by the Angel Cartel, and this month witnessed a Gurista attack against Caldari planetary holdings in the system of Ohkunen. It is unknown at this time what motivated the attacks. Though details [...]

                              • YC114-09-28

                                MOLDEN HEATH - The Angel Cartel this afternoon conducted a large-scale attack on a Minmatar planet for the second time in as many days. The attack took place in the Bogelek system, and like its predecessor it centered on a Genesis Vault cluster, an interconnected series of biodomes used by the Minmatar for plant life reconstruction and research. The vault cluster in question was the largest of the clusters remaining since yesterday's attack, which all but destroyed the facilities on Oddelulf III, [...]

                                Angel Cartel conduct planetary attack in Oddelulf, hundreds dead

                                • YC114-09-28

                                  Recent scientific breakthroughs bring cost of progress under scrutiny

                                  • YC114-05-17

                                    The recent and surprising advancements in various scientific fields may have enraptured many, but there is a darker side to progress. The origins of all this new technology tend to alarm those who even get to hear of it at all, while the militaristic emphasis, even in this current climate, is putting the scientific community on edge about future developments. Lastly, there is the Inferno drug itself, a rumored catalyst behind many of these changes, but one that may also be linked to dangerous events [...]

                                    Amidst the ongoing vigor of the great factional war, there is a strange undercurrent of dissention and disappearances

                                    • YC114-05-17

                                      In itself this should not be surprising - war frays the nerves of all but the hardiest participants, and a galactic-scale war will have devastating effects on the morale of untold numbers of soldiers, no matter how many more are ready to take their place. According to analysts scrutinizing reports from the field, what is increasingly surprising is the complex nature of these defections. Firstly, they seem to involve the least likely soldiers to run off. Enlisted members of the various factional armed [...]

                                        • YC114-05-14

                                          Major advances have been made recently in various once-stagnant scientific fields, throughout all of civilized New Eden. While the full impact of these advances has yet to be measured, their effects, for good and ill, are already being felt at various levels of society. Over the following days, we will present a brief overview of the current state of affairs. It must be noted that the brevity of this reportage is due partly to how new these advances are - The Scope always strives to be first - and [...]
