    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson.
    Today’s top story:
    RX units have once again been sighted by CDF scouts; this time, in Eudoria’s contaminated zone.
    CDF Ground Forces Commander Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza released the following statement.”

    Voice of Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza: “Over the last few days, CDF Scouts have reported regular sightings of RX units mining Pyrite rich areas of the contaminated zone in Eudoria.
    The Governor has issued another warrant. Any colonist who lands the killing strike or shot on an RX unit will be rewarded by the CDF. The following rewards will be handed out, depending on the type of RX unit destroyed:
    • RX Unit Bounty Rewards
    • RX Unit Alpha - Armor Plating Mark.10C TEN Edition + CalyTrek CR Spirit MK.III RX Edition (L) + Isis LC-35 RX Edition (L)
    • RX Unit Beta 242 Armor Plating Mark.10C TEN Edition (L) + CalyTrek CR Spirit MK.III RX Edition (L) + Isis LC-35 RX Edition (L)
    • RX Unit Beta - CalyTrek CR Spirit MK.III RX Edition (L) + Isis LC-35 RX Edition (L)

    Any resources that the RX carry on them may be looted, but be warned - the CDF will not venture into the contaminated zone. The contaminated zone is lawless, in practice. We will not be there to protect you.
    End transmission.”

    Jermaine Johansson: “EBN has received an anonymous tip that there is a newly built fort in the contaminated zone near Camp Echidna. The RX have been seen dropping off and picking up supplies there, and the pattern of their activity suggests they will be there again tomorrow (Wednesday) around 18:00 UTC.
    All brave bounty hunters are advised to be sure to stash their goods before entering this zone as it is inhabited by treacherous bandits.
    Stay tuned for more details.”

    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson.

    Today’s top story: Decrypting the Encrypted Spatial Units.

    Yesterday, CDF Ground Forces Commander Brigadier General de Souza joined us to ask the colony for help in finding robot spatial units, which would lead us to the whereabouts of the RX. Since then, several spatial units have been handed in to the CDF.

    Now, the CDF has issued a statement saying that they need our help to decipher the code in the spatial units. Time is of the essence, so every able-brained colonist is needed. The following data has been extracted from the found spatial units:

    ENCRYPTED SPATIAL UNIT ALPHA & BETA

    Yikes. That’s more than this reporter can handle. Let’s hope that someone out there can figure it out. It’s about time we pay the RX a visit. Get cracking!”

    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson. Our regular program has been cancelled in order to bring you a statement from CDF Ground Forces Commander, Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza. Commander?”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “CDF intelligence ops have, together with Calypso’s top experts on robots, developed a plan to find the RX and the Egg.
    The key lies in the spatial unit, a component of the robot brain.
    The spatial unit stores locations, and directions, as well as various protocols related to movement, such as patrol routes. We therefore believe that if the robots have a plan for where to take the Egg, we should be able to find clues in the spatial unit.”

    Jermaine: “How can our viewers help?”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “They can help by getting us the spatial units. Spatial units have been found on all known robot models, so destroy all the robots you can and loot their spatial units. Spatial units shall be handed in to CDF personnel. Any colonists who hands in a spatial unit will be rewarded with one pair of RX OpTac x1 Gloves.
    A CDF soldier will be stationed at Fort Troy to accept both spatial units and incubator parts, and hand out rewards.”

    Jermaine: “Thank you, commander. Anything you would like to add before you go?”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “Yes. Some incubator parts are still missing. Incubator parts have been recovered when mining, hunting and crafting. There appears to be no pattern in how they were found. Hand in incubator parts to Private Cooper to receive a reward.”

    Jermaine: “Commander, before you go: what can you tell us about the objects that are approaching Calypso? Are they like the others that hit Calypso last week?”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “What objects?”

    Jermaine: “Huge, spherical objects are approaching Calypso from space. They’re big, and they’re fast. We can actually see them with our naked eyes from here at Exodus Space Station. By my estimation they will reach Calypso tomorrow. Has the CDF not detected the objects?”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “...
    I’m needed elsewhere.
    End transmission.”

    Jermaine: “Commander? Huh. Interesting.
    Well, folks, all I can say is that this reporter certainly envies you who are planetside, who get to fight for our homeworld - and have a chance to get your hands on some of that sweet-looking RX armor!
    Happy hunting. Tell ‘em Jermaine sent ya!”

    Encrypted Spatial Units Rewards
    Encrypted Spatial Unit Alpha - RX OpTac x1 Gloves (M) or (F)
    Encrypted Spatial Unit Beta - RX OpTac x1 Gloves (M) or (F)
    Encrypted Spatial Unit Omega - RX OpTac x1 Gloves (M) or (F)
    Hand in Encrypted Spatial Units and/or incubator parts to Private Cooper at Fort Troy (coordinates: 80534,68309) to receive your reward.

    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson.
    Today’s top story: The Egg has been stolen. We go immediately to Treasure Island Castle, where CJ Weave is reporting live from the scene of the crime. CJ?”

    CJ Weave: “Thanks, Jermaine. I am here at Treasure Island Castle with Xenobiologist Charles Marvin’s assistant, Dr. Wilson, as the Xenobiologist himself is too distraught to be interviewed. Dr. Wilson, we’ve all seen the shocking footage from the surveillance cameras. What can you tell us? Do you know what has happened to the Egg?”

    Dr Wilson: “All we know is that it’s alive, and still on Calypso. The tracking signal is scrambled by some kind of interference, so we can’t pinpoint its exact location.”

    Jermaine: “I’m going to have to cut you off there, CJ, as the studio is receiving a call from CDF Eudoria HQ. Hello? To whom am I speaking?”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “This is the voice of CDF Ground Forces Commander, Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza.

    The CDF has analyzed the scene of the heist, and the surveillance video. The patterns of the electromagnetic interference in the video, coupled with a single piece of armor found at Treasure Island Castle, has lead us to the conclusion that we are in fact dealing with humanoid robots.”

    Jermaine: “RX units?”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “… Do you know of any other kind of humanoid robots?
    Calypso’s top virtuologists and robotologists are working day and night to find a way to track down-”

    Charles Marvin: “Wilson, tell them about the incubator!”

    Dr Wilson: “Uh... Yes, professor... When the thieves took the Egg, they broke the incubator holding it. The Egg must be retrieved, but if we don’t repair the incubator or make a new one, the Egg will still die.”

    Charles Marvin: “You have to help us, commander! This is your fault! Remember what the governor said!”

    Jermaine Johansson: “Are you still with us, commander?”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “… Let’s talk about this in private, professor.”

    Charles Marvin: “You must allocate manpower to get us the incubator parts! The Egg must be of even greater importance than we could have imagined. You must not let it die, commander!”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “We don’t HAVE the manpower. We are already wasting resources by looking for the damn Egg. Calypso is facing an invasion of unprecedented scale, and you want me to-
    ….
    Yes, sir. Understood. Will do.
    ...
    Right. As the CDF can not spare the manpower to secure the incubator parts, the governor calls on all able-bodied colonists to help find them. Any colonists who hands in an incubator part will be rewarded by the CDF. The location at which the incubator parts can be handed in will be disclosed in the coming days.

    Among the rewards will be... various armor parts that were reverse engineered by the CDF from the single piece of RX armor left behind at Treasure Island. The complete list of rewards will follow after this broadcast.”

    CJ Weave: “Professor, how does one find an incubator part?”

    Charles Marvin: “Incubator parts can be found when hunting, mining, or crafting. So manufacture one, dig one out of the ground, or kill someone or something and take theirs! It doesn’t matter, just get us the incubator parts!”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “May I PLEASE finish now?
    I have a war to win.

    Experts are trying to figure out a way to find the RX, and the Egg. We don’t yet know why the RX broke the truce, nor why they are collaborating with the robots. Colonists are urged to remain vigilant, as the RX could be hiding among us. Any suspicious behavior should be reported to the CDF.
    End transmission.”

    Jermaine: “Well, there you have it, folks. Interesting stuff. Wouldn’t mind getting my hands on some of that RX armor myself. You’re probably going to attract a lot of accidental blue on blue in it though... But you probably wouldn’t even notice it if you’re wearing that armor. Wow! Happy hunting!”

    Jermaine Johansson: “We interrupt tonight’s broadcast of Knee deep in twisted metal - Life in the CDF to bring you this breaking news.

    “Just hours ago, an incident at Treasure Island Castle was caught by surveillance cameras. EBN has received a copy of the tape. Let’s watch.”


    Treasure Island Surveillance Camera

    “EBN is trying to reach Brigadier General de Souza and Xenobiologist Charles Marvin for comments. We will keep our viewers updated as more information comes in. Any tips from the public are welcome.

    Knee deep in twisted metal will continue after these messages from our sponsor, the Genesis Star corporation.”
