Ryker Airships are Dangerous, Scientists prove

Post by Verion »

Chryste - An independent scientific study by the Royal University of Chryste has proven that the airships of the R.A.S. are a considerable risk to the health of the Goldshirithian people. Mr. Floydianic ab Grofiddychash (Floyd for friends), who has served as head of the Engineering Department of the esteemed university for over twenty years, has said at a press conference today. Following several incidents with airships deployed by the R.A.S., the Governor of Chryste, Merriweather St. Clair, requested the RUC to conduct a thorough investigation into the company. The university scientists found not only that the fuels used by R.A.S. airships are very likely to cause severe illness in later life, but also concluded that both mechanical standards and safety procedures were "not in line with 17th century standards".

It is not the first time that the shady business of the R.A.S. has been questioned. Not long ago, Mr. Thorgils Tarjeisson, a founder of the ESB Group, has joined the board of directors of the fraudulent transportation company. Mr. Tarjeisson is well-known in Goldshire for being one of the instigators of the recent Civil War that has disrupted our beautiful Kingdom. It is telling that a man with the history of Mr. Tarjeisson is part of R.A.S. and this gives the people of Goldshire a clear indication that the Board of directors of the Flying Frauds can never be trusted.

The publication by the Royal University in its conclusion recommends the people of Goldshire "not to enter the Airbound Coffins of the R.A.S. if your value your life or your sanity", a sentiment that this newspaper can only support.

It should be noted to the small percentage of our readers that has an erroneous opinion of the R.A.S. that this publication is scientific, and therefore cannot be wrong. It is common knowledge that those who question scientific conclusions can only be conspiracy theorists, right-wing deplorables or Lunatics.

We urge all our readers to follow the recommendations of the RUC rapport, and to stop flying R.A.S. airships immediately, and look out for trusted alternatives in your region.

Massive Explosion at Sabatini Station - Admiral Feared Dead

Post by Verion »

Sabatini - A massive explosion today at the MoMA Naval Base on the island of Sabatini saw the destruction of the Raynor Class Cruiser ZNS Kaiser Agni I. The explosion occured this morning at around six o'clock, just when Admiral Deimos Jasonides, a highly respected former Prince of Elwynn, had boarded the ship for an inspection round. Eyewitnesses speak of an inferno of flames, and reports are that the entire starboard side of the cruiser has been blown away by what appears to have been an explosion of significant force.

The day began festively. Admiral Deimos Jasonides, who had just been back at Sabatini after his participation in Operation Mockingbird, inspected the cadettes and was greeted by a brass band playing "The Shirithian Navy Is Victorious (Again)", when a small Babkhi vessel without identification signs or registration number, slipped into the harbour. Investigations after the origins of the ship are still undergoing, but it appears that it was carrying several large crates of tractor parts, and was officially en route to the port of Erudition.

On board the ZNS Kaiser Agni I, the small ship was not noticed before it had almost reached the cruiser. At this point, Admiral Jasonides was inspecting a recently installed cannon on the starboard side of the ship, and was talking to the Captain, Ross Balir, who was explaining some of the new technology that was used on the cannon. It was at that point that certain crewmembers noticed the Babkhi vessel, which now had neared the cruiser at only 50 yards. Just when Captain Balir issued an order to inspect the boat, it suddenly exploded. According to surviving crewmembers, almost the entire starboard side was ripped apart, and the place where the Captain and Admiral Jasonides had been standing was transformed in a gaping black hole filled with smoke.

Some fifteen minutes after the explosion, the ZNS Kaiser Agni I had capsized and began to sink. At this moment, maritime investigaters are researching the wreckage and a special unit of S.W.O.R.D. divers is searching for the body of Admiral Jasonides, who is feared to have perished in this explosion.

Although initial reports seem to suggest a possibility of foul play, the Head Investigator of the S.W.O.R.D. unit, Mr. Carolus Zenattir, cannot rule out an accident. The Iron Gazette hopes that the true cause of the incident will quickly be clear. We offer our sincere condolences to the families of the deceased, and especially to the family of Deimos Jasonides, who has been a person of great a merit for the Imperial Republic.

May the Gods give him and his family peace.

The thoughts and prayers of all the faculty, students, and alumni/ae of John Metzler III University are with the victims' families. Words cannot express how deeply sorry we are for their loss.

(OOC: Is it too early to locally elevate "tractor parts" to the same level of euphemism as "tired and emotional" or "Ugandan discussions"?)

(I do remember a tractor incident a few years ago... it became a ephemism for nuclear bombs I believe. Something about a Jackland, Babkha and Jingdao...)

I just re-read that. Good times.

I can't share anything from the Walstadt archives with you unfortunately as long as the Blutwasser dynasty is not restored.

Working Towards a Stable Amity

Post by Verion »

Erudition - The Royal Iron Company of Goldshire today has entered a mutually beneficial co-operation with the local government of the island of Amity. In light of the recent instability in our great lands, the protection of the people of Amity, as well as their financial and mercantile interests, are of paramount importance to the Company. The attacks on the Naval Base Sabatini, as well as the accidental bombing of Chryste and the pirate activity in the Yardistani sea have been reasons for the Governor-Representative to open the relations with the Emirate of Khaz Modan.

The Iron Company will assist the Local Service Regiments in their serious duty to protect the citizens of Amity. The Iron Company will provide the Regiments with Steel from the Erudition Steelworks, as well as 250 Heavy Machine Guns, 20 Armoured vehicles, 70 missile launcers, 4 tanks and one naval supply vessel. In return, the Emir of Khaz Modan will provide the Iron Company ships with protection against pirates in the Yardistani sea, and will grant the Company the privilege of tax collecting on the island of Yardistan.

It should go without saying that the Iron Company is not involved with the Emirate of Khaz Modan on a political level, but merely serves the interest of the people of Khaz Modan. These are difficult times for ordinary people, and their safety should be a concern to all of us. The Iron Company has shown itself to be concerned with the humanitarian side of the conflict that has befallen our nation. The Iron Gazette applauds the Governor-Representative for this brave decision, that will not only benefit the people of Khaz Modan, but the entire state of Goldshire.
