  1. NANOTRASEN AUCTION REACHES SHOCKING CONCLUSION! Late last night (GST) NanoTrasen’s sale of its property in Phoenixport has ended in another shocking upset for the corporation! At 11:56:46PM (GST), mere minutes before the auction was set to close, a previously unknown company - Republic Interstellar Flight Incorporated - placed massive bids on all properties up for auction, successfully purchasing every piece of property for sale. Minutes later Einstein Engines announced that it had acquired Republic Interstellar Fight Incorporated and would begin the integration of its properties into the megacorporation immediately. This is an unprecedented event in the history of the Republic of Biesel, and a massive defeat in the ongoing corporate conflict between Einstein Engines and NanoTrasen. With Einstein Engines now owning upwards of 90% of all commercially-zoned land in Phoenixport, the monopoly held over the system by NanoTrasen for the previous sixty years is effectively dead. Einstein Engines vessels have already warped into the Tau Ceti system and have begun unloading massive amounts of materials into Phoenixport, despite protests from NanoTrasen over the legality of the auction. While unable for an interview Doctor Noella Lopez-Zhang - the current CEO of Einstein Engines - informed the Bugle that she was “absolutely thrilled” to have opened up a new market for the Orion Spur’s oldest - and now, perhaps most powerful - megacorporation. The corporations and governments of the Orion Spur are doubtlessly watching with bated breath as this corporate giant finally enters the Republic of Biesel. Article written by NewOriginalSchwann.
  2. Event Type: Canon Event Scale: Large Assigned Admin: Alberyk OOC Event Description : The first act of King of the World will begin, starting the major event chain. Who knows about it : Nobody knows about it ICly. Host/participants : TheBurninSherman, Kyres1, NewOriginalSchwann, TBD Notes : A news article will appear before the event occurs that will be important and related to the event itself. This will be posted multiple times through our various forms of communication, but this is just here for our sake. Interested in hearing more or catching up?

  3. In pursuit of further personalizing the megacorporations, we've added "Drive and Agenda" sections to each megacorporation page. This should be one of the final tweaks we have for these pages, considering their importance. The affected corporations are Idris, Zeng-Hu, Hephaestus and Zavodskoi. This shouldn't change much but will give the corporations a little more flavor - and perhaps leak into your character writing.

  4. This suggestion is not very simple, to start off. As the title suggests this suggestion is about suggesting the following : 1. Remove EMP. Entirely. It serves no purpose and throws a wrench in the lethality of a great many mechanical things. - Why? Let's cover the things both weak and strong EMP can do. 2. Remove laser damage from IPCs. Make lasers apply heat to IPCs. Make IPCs gain heat by movement in general, not just toggling run. Make IPCs dissipate heat faster when resting. Thus, lasers immobilize an IPC by forcing them to overheat. This makes lasers very viable as disables in place of instant kills/EMP. - Why? You need some counter to IPCs without EMP. This is a given. So, make lasers have more dangerous effects that aren't akin to the EMP effects. 3. adjust brute resists of IPCs accordingly, either raise or lower it depending on combat viability of IPCs. - Why? Well, they don't feel pain, still. This permits them to shrug off some ridiculous brute effects, and in the case of higher damage weapons (such as ARs/SMGs) they would really just rip through an IPC's thin plating all the same. These things are not tanks, but punching them won't really do much, for example. Questions probably to be asked immediately : Q: Wouldn't this make mechs very powerful? A : Yes. Vehicles are an entirely different realm of combat from dudes with guns. More at 11. If they get out of hand, you can make them more rare, or take them out of hands of robotics entirely bar lighter parts. Q : What about borgs? A : Just keep their laser resist, or make them fully laser immune. They are pretty weak otherwise, with even the dreaded combat module going splat in an RNG amount of .45 shots as minimal as 3. For reference : I have posted several contradictory threads on the matter of EMPs. This is yet another attempt to look back in retrospect and maybe present something reasonable out of the threads of the past.
  5. https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=KING_OF_THE_WORLD As part of the KING OF THE WORLD arc, two back-to-back events happened on the NSS Aurora. On October 10, 2020, After the events a week earlier regarding Einstein Engines' incursion, NanoTrasen raised an awareness festival - the Rivalry Festival, in specific - letting the crew explore a five-star resort on a paid holiday for up to two days. At the Starlight Basin resort, the crew relaxed and enjoyed the fun in the metaphorical sun on New Gibson in a climate controlled dome. One day later... The NSS Aurora is the site of a brief incursion where a legal team of numerous heavily armed, armored and equipped Einstein Engines operatives boarded with a legal representative. In the finale of this part of the arc, they acquired pictures of the Supermatter crystal utilized to operate the NSS Aurora before departing. This portion of the arc was a followup to this article, https://forums.aurorastation.org/topic/2662-mendell-city-bugle/page/10/?tab=comments#comment-141548 If you're interested in hearing more about these events or getting pinged for it, joining the lore discord in affiliated groups and using the proper bot command in the "role-acquisition" channel can get you a role.
  6. Martian Armory Raided: Thousands of Explosives, Weapons and Ammunition Stolen. A military base at Argyre, Mars had a break-in on Saturday in what the Solarian Armed Forces officials are referring to as “the work of a terrorist organization.” An overview of the incident has been released to the press. During the night, the criminals were able to access the base through the use of a makeshift tunnel. They cut the main chamber’s floor with industrial tools. Surveillance systems were disabled by an electromagnetic pulse. Sentinels on site noticed the theft hours after the crime took place. Most of the stolen weapons were rifles and pistols manufactured by Zavodskoi Interstellar. Grenades and military-grade explosives were also missing. Solarian law agencies suspect that Martian separatists are responsible for the crime.
  7. Event Type: Canon Event Scale: Small Assigned Admin: Yonnimer OOC Event Description : The third scheduled event of the King of the World Arc will begin.

  8. NanoTrasen Sues Einstein Engines! Earlier today (GST) NanoTrasen legal director Mori Takachika followed up on her earlier promises regarding the Einstein Engines Suzuki-Zhang Hammer Drive, suing the megacorporation over copyright infringement under current Republic of Biesel law. The case has already run into difficulties due to Einstein Engines being headquartered outside of Tau Ceti and therefore not being subject to the Republic of Biesel’s legal system. However the case seems to be set to begin shortly as Einstein Engines has stated its willingness to proceed with the case, despite describing it as “absolutely baseless” in a press release. As part of the pre-courtroom proceedings NanoTrasen and Einstein Engines have agreed to allow one another to take photos of their engines for the legal process. Einstein Engines has reportedly dispatched a legal team to take photographs of one of NanoTrasen’s rare supermatter-based engines, while NanoTrasen has sent a legal team to observe a Suzuki-Zhang Hammer Drive in Einstein Engine’s headquarters on Luna. The Bugle will report on this story as it develops. Article written by NewOriginalSchwann.
  9. Event Type: Canon Event Scale: Small Assigned Admin: Alberyk OOC Event Description : The second scheduled event of the King of the World Arc will begin. Building off of the success of previous beach parties, NanoTrasen attempts to raise awareness of Einstein Engines' actions by hosting yet another. Who knows about it : Anyone could know about it ICly. Host/participants : TheBurninSherman, Kyres1, NewOriginalSchwann Notes : This is a beach event! Do not expect anything more or less. The hour of the event will likely change depending on host availability and be set in stone at least a day or two before the event.
  10. https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=KING_OF_THE_WORLD As part of the KING OF THE WORLD arc, an event has happened on the NSS Aurora. The NSS Aurora was attacked by Einstein operatives. After a covert operation to destroy contracted robots reached its end, the intruder's vessel was shot down by the Icarus. After the debris landed, there was an arrangement of evidence pointing to their illicit activity. This diary entry is slightly delayed, and the actual event occurred on October 3, one day before this. As well, a Bugle news article likely related to the developing situation was released. https://forums.aurorastation.org/topic/2662-mendell-city-bugle/page/10/?tab=comments#comment-141452 If you're interested in hearing more about these events or getting pinged for it, joining the lore discord in affiliated groups and using the proper bot command in the "role-acquisition" channel can get you a role.
  11. https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=KING_OF_THE_WORLD As part of the KING OF THE WORLD arc, an event has happened on the NSS Aurora. The NSS Aurora was the stopping point of August "Gus" Maldarth, a Martian whistleblower who incited riots in the Outer Ring and created an uproar by revealing a sinister plot on part of the Alliance. They were tailed by individuals in Einstein Engines gear in an unmarked corvette, who landed and began jamming the NSS Aurora's outgoing communications. When Gus prepared a speech and separated himself from the crowd, the second party proceeded to brutally assassinate the man before escaping quickly, exiting the system. This diary entry is slightly delayed, and the actual event occurred on September 22nd, two days before this.

  12. https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=KING_OF_THE_WORLD As part of the KING OF THE WORLD arc, an event has happened on the NSS Aurora. The NSS Aurora drifted into an anomalous sector caused by a nearby phoron stockpile. The dangers of this sector became immediately apparent as phoron worms, golems, and other nasty critters began appearing stationwide. As well, spatial anomalies such as wormholes, portals and phoron displacement occurred. Amidst all this, a "phoron storm" occurred, leading to more confusion and the station being deemed too dangerous for the crew to remain. Evacuation proceeded shortly after and went as standard with no major injuries. One crewman committed suicide in the duration of this event.

  13. Random events are kind of tiresome and dealing with them, after the third or fourth time, gets really repetitive. This is pretty much just a suggestion to remove them entirely, or, in the best case scenario, rework the current ones (or new ones) into really cool shit. Should the latter be considered and pursued by a developer, ideas for that could go on this thread. for clarity this refers to carp/rampant brand intelligence/blobs etc.
  14. https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=KING_OF_THE_WORLD As part of the KING OF THE WORLD arc, an event has happened on the NSS Aurora. The NSS Aurora discovered one of the first major moves of Einstein Engines that has become apparent to its crew. After a warp signature was located by deep scans from Central Command within the asteroid, an away team was launched from hastily picked crew. The outcome of this ended up revealing an Einstein listening shuttle, loaded to the brim with suited, armed men and a particularly heavily armored asset protection trooper. The NanoTrasen trooper spearheading the expedition to the shuttle was shot a great number of times until they were, in fact, a great amount of dead. After a reasonably confusing method of escape through multiple docks, the Einstein listener group managed to make their way out of the station. The event owed the sheer amount of information gleaned to the extremely proactive efforts of several players who were chosen for the away mission. As well, many station-side players made significant headway into discovering more of the intricacies of the eponymous KING OF THE WORLD arc. Select players will see commemoration for these actions.

  15. Several new pieces of art were added to the Republic of Biesel page. Special thanks to sleepy and moist-kun. https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=Republic_of_Biesel "Phoron Worms" were added to the Deep Space wiki page alongside other common pests in space. https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=Deep_Space#Phoron_Worm
