    Interview with CDF Ground Forces Commander at Treasure Island Castle

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

    A robot attack on Treasure Island, just days after Xenobiologist Charles Marvin announced the plan to hatch the Egg. We go immediately to Treasure Island Castle, where our reporter CJ Weave is joined by CDF Ground Forces Commander Yevgeny de Souza and Xenobiologist Charles Marvin.”

    CJ Weave: “Thanks, Jermaine. Commander, a robot attack on Calypso soil, and the CDF was nowhere to be seen. What went wrong?”

    Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza: “First of all, we would like to thank the colonists who risked life and limb to repel the attack. That being said, it was simply the case of many small unfortunate events accumulating, resulting in the CDF arriving after the fighting was over. The CDF will review its protocols to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again. We don’t yet know why the robots attacked Treasure Island, of all places, but-

    Xenobiologist Charles Marvin: “May I interject, commander? Thank you. It is painfully obvious that the robots want to destroy the Egg! How can you not see that? The Egg must be even more important than we originally thought. Commander, you MUST help us move the Egg to a safer location on Eudoria.”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “That won’t be necessary, professor. Like I said: we don’t yet know why the robots attacked Treasure Island Castle. CDF operatives are investigating this as we speak. In the meantime, significant CDF assets will be relocated so as to ensure a quicker response to any future attacks on Treasure Island, or any other part of Ameth... era... Hey, what the hell is going on over there?!”

    CDF soldier 1: “Let go of me! You don’t know what you’re doing! Listen to me, THE RX TOLD-”

    CDF soldier 2: “Sir! We found Private Duplantier wiring explosives to the Egg incubator. He kept babbling about the RX units and some new weapon that the robots-”

    Yevgeny de Souza: “Shut your mouth, corporal. You, cut the feed. NOW!”

    Jermaine: ”CJ?



    It appears that we have, once again, lost the feed from Treasure Island Castle.

    Uhm...

    Enjoy these messages from our sponsor, the Omegaton corporation.”

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

    Today’s top story: A major announcement coming out of Treasure Island.

    We go now to our reporter, CJ Weave, who is reporting live from Treasure Island Castle. CJ?”

    CJ Weave: “Thanks, Jermaine.

    'Aaaah, The Egg...' A standing joke among Calypsians, ever since entrepreneur-colonist Zachurm “Deathifier” Emegen bought the petrified ovum for a fantastical amount of PED. Now, scientists say, we might finally get to hear the punchline.

    The Egg will hatch - if everything goes as planned, that is.

    We are joined now by renowned Xenobiologist Charles Marvin, who is leading the project to hatch the Egg.

    Charles, how exactly do you plan on hatching the Egg?”

    Xenobiologist Charles Marvin: “It’s simple, really. The Egg was extracted from the carcass of the Atrox Queen - it was never brought to term. We intend to ‘tell’ the Egg that it’s time to hatch, by subjecting it to a cocktail of hormones... Atrox and otherwise.”

    CJ Weave: “What exactly do you hope to accomplish by hatching the Egg?”

    Xenobiologist Charles Marvin: “Knowledge. The Egg is a xenobiological anomaly. It will remain a missing link in our understanding of this world we call Calypso until it hatches.

    And who knows what we could learn from whatever hides within the egg?”

    CJ Weave: “Charles, it’s an Atrox Queen egg; would it not be safe to assume that it contains an atrox?”

    Xenobiologist Charles Marvin: “Well... Uhm... Good point. Hmm... It’s actually a green Atrox Queen egg, so...”

    CJ Weave: “Thank you, professor. For EBN News, I’m CJ Weave. Back to you at the station.”

    Jermaine: “Well, there you have it, folks. A new chapter in Calypso’s history, or the world’s most expensive omelet? I personally can’t wait to find out. Stay tuned.”

    Brig. General Yevgeny de Souza, Commander of CDF Ground Forces,hereby alerts all colonists that recent reports of disruptions to the teleporter network have been confirmed by CDF military engineers. The circumstances leading to the disruptions appear identical to those associated with hostile robot infiltrations experienced on Calypso in the past. Higher than usual robot activity in recent weeks also supports this indication.

    The initial breach appears to have taken place at the Ashi teleporter, where local CDF and colonist militia forces have been battling Steel Bird aerial robots for the past fortnight. Hundreds of robots are now pouring through the compromised teleporter and decimating colonist settlements in the region. The CDF urgently requests that all active members of the colonial militia report immediately to Ashi and assist in containing the situation. All other civilians are strongly encouraged to evacuate the area until the robot threat has been defeated.

    One theory being investigated by CDF Intelligence is that the robot reconnaissance forces were somehow assisted in this infiltration by the mysterious insurgents known as the Wastelanders. Colonist militia forces are authorised to use any force necessary to apprehend or eliminate any Wastelander traitors encountered.

    In hopes of preventing future infiltrations, CDF robotologists are particularly interested in obtaining robot technology for analysis, and are offering valuable rewards to colonists who can recover any of the following components from neutralised robots:

    • Exceptional Robot Optical Lens
    • Exceptional Robot Hypercharger
    • Exceptional Robot Contraction Unit
    • Rare Robot Secret Transmitter
    • Robot Power Transformer
    • Robot Speech Emulation Unit
    • Robot Nanomodulator
    • Robot Dynocyclic Relay
    • Robot Magnetomic Throttle

    The Governor's office just released a statement alerting colonists to possible robot activity following the interception of signals originating from Akbal-Cimi. Although the purpose of these signals remain unclear they seem to have been directed towards Fort Medusa, Camp Echidna, Fort Pandora, and East Scylla Mountains.

    And so it beings. The Steelbirds were only the beginning. The robots seem to have refitted and retooled the War Titan Typhon that crashed into Hadesheim six years ago.

    Satellite surveillance was blanked momentarily by electro-magnetic pulses from Hadesheim, and as they came back online, infrared photography revealed new structures under the cloud cover of the crater. Some of them were active, launching objects in suborbital mid-range trajectories on Eudoria.

    Colonel Briers in Port Atlantis has confirmed that CDF and CFA will cooperate to take the fight to the Steelbirds. He also hinted that CDF is developing a strategy to investigate the crater and the mysterious drops over Eudoria, but as they are unfinished, CDF does not want to reveal them at the moment.

    New Features
    include both seasonal and permanent Iron Challenges, story missions and a mining challenge. And last but not least, Shared Loot! Our new feature allows us to share loot from event mobs. The feature, if activated, splits loot among everyone that inflicted damage on the mob similary to the rule "Damage: Stack Share". Team loot rules are ignored for these mobs. We have activated shared loot on Steel Bird Elite spawns for this event.
