    The Spur is currently considered neutral territory by the USCM and the Miniknog. Both parties have agreed to not have any military presence within the Sector.

    This may be the cause of reports of increased rebel activity within the sector.

    The Apex are currently in a state of civil war between the Miniknog Government and a Rebellion, who consider the Miniknog rule to be tyrannical.

    The rebellion may have taken advantage of the lack of Miniknog presence in the sector, and begun to use the Sector as a safe zone.

    More on the situation as new reports come in.

    Trouble for Snowquill: Floran sympathizers endanger citizens
    Authored by Janio Zayen

    In a shocking reversal of previous policy, Snowquill is now allowing Floran invaders free reign to prey on its inhabitants. What possessed the mayor of a safe and peaceful colony to willingly invite a race of cannibalistic savages to live alongside them? An INN inside report suggests that the real reason may be far more disgusting than anyone could have ever imagined. The only thing we can know for certain is that...

    The life cost of the United Systems and the Miniknog's political games
    It's dusk on Loswake, time for supper, but the families on this wealthy mining colony are not sitting at the dinner table in their home. They are keeping each other company in one of the many reinforced underground shelters on the isolated world, the drone of distant raid sirens drowning out the thuds of mortar fire. 391 people have been killed over the last year from the recent and relentless pirate raids.

    The erchius producing world wasn't always like this....

    Authored by Naturo Hogake

    Holy Fleet soldiers have halted what might go down as one of the most bizarre conflicts in history between a group of armed alcoholics and a delusional millionaire with too many fancy toys. When a Holy Fleet patrol responded to a general distress signal, they had no idea what sort of crazy waited in store for them.

    It started as what people believed to be a joke on the free trade world Edge. A local news article published by Atol Bethlem, a...

    The image of Pinewood Falls as a peaceful, family friendly resort with ample opportunities for leisure continues to blur in the minds of the residents of the Spur entirely due to it's long string of mishaps.

    Nearly a week ago, a death row inmate that was recently convicted of murder was being convoyed by several armed guards to an unknown location. The transfer unfortunately did not go according to plan when an unidentified assailant incapacitated one of the guards and caused a...

    It seems the body count continues to rise in the small tourist attraction known as Pinewood Falls, a town infamous for it's lengthy string of terrorist attacks and murders.

    Two individuals decided to settle their long, hate filled rivalry with a savage brawl at the Pinewood lake, a brawl that took a turn for the worst. The victim, which we will not reveal the name or race of, paid the ultimate price for participating in such a ferocious act: their life. They were promptly found...

    As fast as the clan arrived, they have suddenly uprooted from the tourist colony of Snowquill and disappeared into the night sky, leaving behind nothing more than their mark: A looted colony now devoid of luxuries and people, supposedly Hylotl residents conscripted into their war effort, as well as their fortress built directly on the colony, which remains albeit empty as the rest of the town. Speculation as to what caused their sudden leaving remains unknown, however, it is assumed that...

    Interstellar News Network: Tourist Trap! - Eaten alive in resort town!

    Authored by Chet Lavanchy

    It seems the resort town of Pinewood Falls is quickly gaining a reputation as a dangerous place to spend your summer holidays, according to month old reports finally made open to the public.

    Like so many, Nextia, an Avian tourist, came to Pinewoods for some rest and relaxation. What she found instead was a horrific and grisly fate at the hands (and teeth) of a pair of hungry florans. Nextia's body was...
