Sore Cogs Accused of Violating Terran Law

The large monolith ship "Capricious" used by Dragons Gear appears to have been supplied by Sore Cogs Galactical.



KIDDER, MARS - Controversy has erupted in the wake of an attack on Baldurs Syndicate, casting doubt on how the intergalactic community will handle violations of Terran laws both now and into the future.

The attacks, launched on turn 43902 and carried out by a group known as Dragons Gear, targeted and destroyed a military installation at Kidder on Mars. The fighting also destroyed the “Planet Express”, a warp freighter inbound to that location. Baldurs claimed the freighter was returning from an education cruise for children, and was holding over 6000 individuals, most of whom were children. Gorion Irenicus, CEO of Baldurs Syndicate, described the incident as “murder”.

Baldurs Syndicate has now claimed that Dragons Gear and Sore Cogs Galactical have violated Terran laws through the illegal transfer of funds and weapons. It appears the forces used in the attack had been directly supplied by Sore Cogs. When asked to comment, Sir J of Sore Cogs called the group a “renegade faction” and stated: “All us Sore Cogs nation is doing is paying those traitors to stay away from us, those infamous defectors have betrayed our trust.”

Discussion is now focused on if and what penalty Sore Cogs might face for violating Terran Law. Previous incidents have generally involved strict penalties as well as forfeiture of assets in reparation. These sanctions have often been enforced by the ARK group, of whom Sore Cogs is a member.

BREAKING: Dragons Gear has just posted a general statement on the galactic communications channel: “Time to go for the jugular... Sir J of the Sore Cogs, Grand General Springer is coming for you! The Sore Cogs Nation will be put in line and follow my lead…enough of this sad chat, time to rule with some real gear!” The official Corp-net listing of Sore Cogs Galactical has been renamed “Sore Cogs Dragons Gear”. The state of the leadership or the stability of the corporation is unclear at this time.

This story is still developing.

GNN: Deepspace Mission Nearing its Target

The "Wasp", among the fastest ships in the galaxy, has nearly completed its' journey to the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.




ILIAS, GULYAEV II: A significant exploration mission has nearly reached its intended destination after traveling over 8,600 turns. The mission, conceived of and launched by Luna Moth Industries, seeks to reach the absolute center of the Milky Way Galaxy.

The mission is being conducted by the “Wasp”, a heavily modified Zenith Hypercraft originally discovered through the research teams of Echos Echo. The Bookshelf Research Group at Luna Moth Industries made the modifications to the ship that have made the voyage possible.

The vessel, armed only with a 2 man crew, launched from the Door of Night warpgate a few hundred turns before 40,000. The voyage is anticipated to arrive at its destination in approximately 2 days on turn 48,630, making the voyage by far the longest journey undertaken in the known galaxy.

Due to the nature of the warpgates, the crew members will most likely give their lives for the sake of the mission, with no clear path of return to Sector 1. Critics of the exploration mission have pointed out the unnecessary use of a manned mission and the loss of these lives, when an AI Hyperfighter could have been used instead as an unmanned mission.


Scientists are unclear what, if anything, will occur when the ship arrives at its destination. The crew has thus far reported no notable observations about the universe.

Raids, Blockade Destabilize Earth

The Imperial Port in orbit over Earth, currently under blockade by Safehold Corp.


MEXICO CITY, EARTH: The planet Earth has come into a period of instability as Safehold Corp has made series of raids that have resulted in the deaths of over a million inhabitants of earth. The raids occurred in the cities of Madrid and Wellington, targeting corporations with large stockpiles of relatively undefended materials.

The government of Earth, led by newly elected emperor Liam Ebonwood of Templaris Inc, has not made a response to the attacks and did not immediately respond to a request for comment by GNN. The newly established regime has often been hindered by a lack of resources and defensive measures, and appears to lack the means to defend the corporations of Earth effectively.

The inability of Emperor Ebonwood to properly establish a strong regime has been largely attributed to the failings of former emperor AristocraTech, specifically his failure to transfer control of the Imperial Port and defensive forces to the new emperor. The current charter for earth states that "From here on out the Space Port around Earth shall always be in the possession of the Emperor of Earth to help fund the grow and defense of Earth.”

Safehold Corp has now positioned his fleet in a blockade of the Imperial Port. Cayleb Ahrmahk, CEO of Safehold, believes that the port should be transferred to the Earths’ rightful ruler per the call of the cult group Haedus Disciples – a group of religious extremists who claim to have received a vision calling for the redemption or destruction of the spaceport.

Mr Ahrmahk has devoted himself to study the Ancient Ones that the cult group is based on, and considers himself to be an adherent and follower. Concerning the spaceport, the CEO stated “if the transferring of the port is not fulfilled, the Ancient Ones would require the destruction of the port, as it is an abomination and insult to the established democracy that governs Earth.”

It is unclear at this time if the raids also conducted by Safehold are connected to the religious teachings of this group. Statements made by Ahrmahk did not cite any religious reasons behind the attacks in Madrid and Wellington. The official statement from the corporation said the raids were made to recover valuable goods located in the store rooms of companies described by Ahrmahk as "falling apart" and reclusive".

United Cogs Republic Pioneers Growth in Ilias



Growth in Ilias has seen massive construction projects undertaken. The financial center hosts some of the tallest skyscrapers in the galaxy.

ILIAS, GULYAEV II: Following a long period of recession in Gulyaev, the main planet of Gulyaev II has sprung back into life, led by the unprecedented growth of the capital city of Ilias. The city, now home to over 53.6 million inhabitants, has well surpassed Sicardy in the Sirius system as the most populated planet in the galaxy.

The growth in the city is attributed to the leadership and strategic vision of Emperor Reginald Flywheel of the newly formed United Cogs Republic. Under his leadership the city has added nearly 50 million inhabitants. It appears the city will remain at a high population level for some time due to the long-term planning and oversight of the Cogs Republic leadership.

When asked about the success of the city, Emperor Flywheel cited his planning abilities and carefully though-out strategy as the reason for his success. Cogs Republic has sold He stated that the incredible growth of this city can be held up as a model success story for other mayors to strive for.

The growth comes after a contentious period for the Cogs Nation. Prior to Emperor Flywheel taking control, the group fell under the leadership of General Springer, a radical military strategist who supported mercenary actions in the galaxy. Under his leadership, the group was accused of flagrant violations of Terran Law concerning multi-accounting, and was involved in several military incidents, including a series of engagements with StarCorp in the Rigil system. StarCorp has since restructured as Boldor Galactic Inc.

United Cogs Republic has not shown any interest in aggression after Emperor Flywheel took control.

Gulyaev II is now the most populated planet in the galaxy, surpassing Earth, which currently holds a population of 69.8 million people.

TIGCA Modifies Asset Tracking Laws



TIGCA Headquarters at the Terran Governmental Complex. The commerce authority recently announced significant changes to its asset reporting requirements.


MEXICO CITY – The Terran Inter-galactic Commerce Authority (TIGCA) has announced sweeping changes to the way it handles corporation asset reporting. The announcement came following the results of the research done by Sweet Fruit Supply economists, who were able to provide a much more efficient method for the Terran Federation to track corporation assets. The Terran federation appears to have fully embraced the new method.


The change in Terran law, which at first appears to be insignificant change, will have tremendous impact on the efficiency of corporations, according to the research report published by Sweet Fruit Supply. Any corporations participating in inter-galactic commerce was previously required to keep strict logs and reports of asset locations at all times, to be submitted daily to TIGCA.

The new changes provide an automated way for corporations to easily log their assets to TIGCA, which should greatly reduce the time needed for corporations to track and manage their assets.

Numerous corporations have previously ceased their inter-galactic trade activities due to the immensely prohibitive measures that had been in place. This change could attract some of these corporations to restart their former operations.

Though this marks a great step forward, opponents still cite the government oversight of corporation assets as restrictive and controlling. The recent changes do not appear to have any provision to reduce the reporting that requires all assets to be logged to the government at all times.

The public nature of the records held by TIGCA allows any corporations’ assets to be viewed at all times by any individual; this includes the location and order assigned to all assets in a corporation.

TIGCA made no comment in response to the complaints.

Following the publishing of the research report, sources have stated that Sweet Fruit Supply has received an ultra-advanced battlecruiser from the Terran Federation as a reward for their loyalty and dedication to the government.

GNN: Tensions easing between Fidelis ad Terram, Ark Group

Even with successful discussions between Ark and FaT, the corporation Nynoxaff has continued to build his military bases in and around Moscow.


QUESTA, GULYAEV II: Tensions are subsiding between Earth and Gulyaev as the Ark Group made a public bulletin concerning their support of a combat free earth for active corporations.

The statement came after a period of uncertainty for earth-based corporations, brought about by the small raid and subsequent military build-up by Nynoxaff, as well as the sometimes brash rhetoric used by members of the Ark group. The Earth based corps of the guild Fidelis ad Terram held concerns that the Ark leadership had sanctioned the attack conducted by Nynoxaff.

It appears that the Ark group published the bulletin in response to information leaked to them through an undisclosed source. The public release from the Ark group included affirmation that Ark will not condone military action on earth, and called for discussions concerning the proper action in regards to defunct and inactive corporations.

When asked to comment on the release by the Ark Group, Emperor Liam Ebonwood of Templaris Inc stated “I really respect their desire to come to the table and discuss this situation. It actually has a number of CEOs concerned and their press release put a lot of minds at ease. We look forward to discussions with ARK and hope to come to a mutually beneficial solution.”

Discussions have now begun between Ark and Fidelis ad Terram concerning the issue of potential military action against inactive corporations on earth.

Despite the talks, no discussion has been made publicly concerning the continued military build-up of Nynoxaff in Moscow. The corporation continues to build large military complexes in and aorund the city, according to local authorities.

Millions of Credits Stolen through AI Supervirus


Numerous servers and databases were infected with a virus from Cellozz Inc that stole millions of credits from corporations.



CAIRO, EARTH: In a surprising turn of events several days ago, an AI Supervirus escaped containment from a Cellozz Inc research facility.
This malignant code has ravaged its way across the planet, disrupting hundreds of corporations and resulting in millions of credits of lost funds. Reactions were initially hostile, with a public statement by Exordium Inc. directed at Cellozz Inc. offering an ultimatum of complete dissolution should the breach in security be duplicated. In the wake of the accusation of malingering, speculation circulated as to whether or not Cellozz Incorporated had purposefully released the Supervirus as an underhanded method to acquire Earth’s wealth. Proponents of this theory have also noted the company’s 43% increase in net worth since the initial outbreak of the Supervirus as evidence for this theory.


Following the outbreak, the Cellozz Inc. spokesperson stated that all safety measures had been in accordance with the Fidelis ad Terram regulations, but they would be investing in upgraded safety measures and containment systems going forward. In response, the Fidelis ad Terram organization afforded leniency on the corporation upon the promise that there would be no further disruption to Earth’s commerce. For now, however, efforts are ongoing to further contain the damage actively being caused by the Supervirus.


When asked for comment regarding the outbreak of the predatory AI, the de facto leader of the Fidelis ad Terram organization, Liam Ebonwood, stated, “I would hope that our friends on Earth will respect that we were all new once and forgive him for his transgression. In the end, if he becomes a veteran player, his contribution will outweigh the loss.”
