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

    Today’s top story: The robots have been defeated!

    All robot transport ships have vanished, and no Vanguard have been detected for some time.
    Imperial Engineers have calculated that the structure of the Vanguards does not allow for greater mass than that of the Vanguard known as Entropy. The robots assaulted us with their most powerful, but yet again Calypso stood victorious.

    The CDF is still looking for the traitor Charles Marvin.

    In other news: An ancient race of highly intelligent humanoids on Calypso? Rumors have recently been circling about remnants of an ancient indigenous civilization having been discovered near Fort Troy. The CDF has made a thorough investigation and concluded that the so-called alien civilization is nothing but a Thorifioid settlement. The governor’s office has issued a warning that those spreading and/or perpetuating false rumors can and will be indicted for disturbing the public order.

    On a lighter note: the Imperial Exobiology Institute have recently released a statement that Eomon pheromone levels have reached the threshold associated with the start of the annual Eomon migration. Pheromone levels have peaked in the following locations:
    • Nymphtown
    • Minopolis
    • Cape Corinth
    • Livas
    • Port Atlantis

    Every year around this time, the massive Eomon migrate to their summer grazing grounds.
    The Imperial Exobiology Institute has predicted Friday this week as the start of the Eomon hunting season. Note however that Imperial Zoological Scouts have yet to make a confirmed observation of Eomon.

    Get your gear, grab some friends, and stay tuned to EBN for all your migration related news!
    Migration is upon us.

    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I am your host, Jermaine Johansson.
    Today’s top story: Peace on Calypso.
    After months of constant battle against the robot nemesis, it seems the siege may finally be lifted.
    CDF Ground Forces Commander, Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza, joins us for an exclusive interview.
    Welcome, general. Thank you for joining us.
    Let’s get right to the point. General, is the war finally over?”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “The robot invasion has been waning ever since the original Feffox escaped. Robot reinforcements have been coming in less and less frequently. It’s only a matter of time before the CDF has cleansed Calypso of the last remaining robot forces. Then, the war will be over.”

    Jermaine: “Will it really be over, though? What of the RX? Why did the RX steal the Egg? Were they cooperating with the robots or acting on their own? If they were indeed working together - why did the robots want the Egg? And, as you just mentioned, why did the robots back off when the Egg ha-”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “Look - robots invade, we defend. Business as usual. The RX question is a completely separate issue. They WILL be dealt with. We just need some time to recover and regain our strength. At the moment we lack the ability to undertake operations of any scale.
    When we have regained that ability, however, our top priority will be to locate and capture the fugitive Charles Marvin. We could handle the robots, or the Feffox, but not at the same time. Charles Marvin bears the ultimate responsibility for turning what would be a standard tin can hunt into what could have been the end of the colony as we know it.
    When he’s found, he will be put on trial for treason... and when found guilty, he will suffer perma-death.”

    Jermaine: “Oh... Wow. Hrm. Speaking of the Feffox, general - what’s your opinion on the holder of the Green Atrox Egg being given a Feffox DNA by the RDI?”

    Yevgeney de Souza: “…
    I did not know that.”

    Jermaine: “Assurances have of course been given by the RDI that the Feffox DNA has been modified so as to prevent another outbreak like the one we just experienced.”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “Yeah. After all that’s happened, I don’t exactly trust scientists anymore. We’ll see how the event unfolds.”

    Jermaine “Well, there you have it, folks. Finally, we can breathe a sigh of relief as our colony is safe once again. I’m Jermaine Joha-”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “The colony isn’t safe at all! Did you not listen to me? The CDF is but a shadow of its former self. I have suggested to the Governor that while the CDF recovers, the Federal Empire should step in and-”

    Jermaine Johansson:
    “THANK YOU, General. Like I said... A sigh of relief.
    I’m Jermaine Johansson, reporting to you from Exodus... Space... Uh...
    What the hell is that?
    Get the general back on the line! A BIG FREAKIN’ VANGUARD IS APPROACHING CALY-”

    CDF PRIORITY ALERT - ALL CHANNELS OVERRIDE
    -WARNING -
    VANGUARD APPROACHING CALYPSO - ETA 2013.06.15 15:00 UTC - CALCULATED CRASH SITE CAPE CORINTH
    - CDF ASSETS UNAVAILABLE -
    EVACUATE OR SEEK SHELTER

    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson.
    Today’s top story: The Egg has been recovered and moved to a classified safe location. It is expected to hatch very soon.
    CJ Weave joins us from the classified location. CJ?”

    CJ Weave: “Thanks, Jermaine. I am at a heavily guarded CDF black site, where the Egg has just arrived from the scene of the battle with the RX units. I will, once again, be keeping you updated until the Egg has hatched.
    I am joined by Xenobiologist Charles Marvin’s assistant, Dr Wilson, and CDF Ground Forces Commander de Souza. Dr Wilson, what can you tell us? Is the Egg alright?”

    Dr Wilson: “The Egg has just been put into the new incubator that was built with the parts collected by colonists. All its vital signs are normal and it does not appear to have been tampered with. Tiny cracks are already starting to appear in the shell, and from what we can tell they were not caused by external trauma.”

    CJ Weave: “So when can we expect it to hatch? What can we expect to come out of the Egg?”

    Dr Wilson: “It could be days, or just hours. Any time now. Whatever comes out, the Egg hatching will be the dawn of a new era on Calypso, Dr. Marvin assures us.”

    CJ Weave: “General, as the person responsible for the “rescue operation” of the Egg, this must be a thrilling moment for you. How does it feel to have played such a pivotal part in what will be “the dawn of a new era on Calypso?”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “Are you serious? Just hatch the damn thing so my men can stop babysitting and get back to fighting the invasion.”

    Dr Wilson: “Commander, you don’t understand-”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “No, doctor, YOU don’t underst-”

    Xenobiologist Charles Marvin: “I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY! General, the work done in here, by my team, outweighs all that you and your soldiers are doing out on the surface. The robots invaded to get the Egg. The RX violated the truce to get the Egg. There is only one way we can end this invasion - by hatching the Egg. And when it does, it will be absolutely marvellous.”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “By that logic, we might as well destroy the Egg and be done with it.”

    Charles Marvin: “Commander! Need I call the Governor again?”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “Listen, you-”

    CJ Weave: “Speaking of the RX, commander: some have voiced concerns that going after all RX because of the actions of a few is only going to open up a new conflict for no good reason.”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “If we see a robot, do we ask it if it personally has killed Calypsians before we destroy it? No. How is destroying an RX any different from destroying a robot?”

    CJ Weave: “What about those who say that these RX might not even be the same RX that have coexisted peacefully with us here on Calypso?”

    Brigadier General de Souza: “That is a lie. A dangerous rumour that you should not be perpetuating. Look - The RX have murdered CDF personnel. Stolen the property of Calypsians. Plotted with the robots against us. The events of the last few weeks show just how vulnerable we are to attacks from the RX. None of us will be safe until all RX on Calypso are dealt with - and they will be dealt with.”

    CJ Weave: “Very well. Thank you, commander.”

    Jermain Johansson: “...
    Hrm. Alright, thrilling stuff. We’re going to take a short break for some messages from our sponsor, the Chikara corporation - but be sure to stay tuned for the conclusion of this mystery several years in the making. You don’t want to miss this “dawn of a new era”.”

    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson.
    Today’s top story:
    Spatial units collected from the destroyed RX units of type 'Alpha' have lead the CDF to the whereabouts of the RX unit known as 'Omega'. The Egg is believed to be with the Omega.
    CDF Ground Forces Commander Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza released the following statement:”

    Voice of Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza: “It’s time to end this. This Sunday, between 18:00-19:00 UTC, the final RX on Calypso will be destroyed, and the Egg will be recovered.
    Whoever lands the killing blow on an RX unit will be rewarded with the following:
    • RX Unit Bounty Rewards
    • RX Unit Omega - RX OpTac x1 Harness (M) or (F) + Armor Plating Mark.10C TEN Edition
    • 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 - CalyTrek CR Spirit MK.III RX Edition (L) + Isis LC-35 RX Edition (L)

    RX slayers will have their rewards placed in their inventories after the fight is over.
    Stay tuned for more details.
    End transmission.”

    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.”
