As part of the KING OF THE WORLD arc, an event has happened on the NSS Aurora.

The NSS Aurora was intruded upon by several phoron-eating monstrously bloated worms, seeking phoron amidst the scarcity and flocking to larger, more dangerous deposits. Two crewmen were killed in the ensuing chaos after the "black trident worms" attacked them.

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.

Expanded on artistic representation of some ma'ta'ke gods: https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=Ma'ta'ke_Gods

Mata'ke's sword and spears are sometimes replaced by a rifle in images. Mata'ke is also commonly portrayed as a zhan by zhan-khazan communities. Njarir mata'ke is a thing, but it is far rarer since the first revolution
Marryam is commonly depicted as a Hharar, with the njarir version being far more common in the new kingdom.
Rock nomads will always portray Rredouane as a zhan.
Shumaila's images can be either the m'sai, hharar or njarir.

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.

Aut'akh has undergone a heavy rework to make them more palatable for play. This is the final version, so expect this draft to be the mainstay, aside from minor corrections and additions in the future.
The Aut'akh page itself has undergone an update: https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=Aut'akh
Religion has also been updated to show their tenets and beliefs: https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=Unathi_Religion
The main page has been refitted to get a quick synopsis of what you need to know as a traditional, non-heathen: https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=Unathi

Small addition to amon, done alongside the human lore team:

Quote

Tajara mercenaries, usually veterans of the Second Revolution, are becoming increasingly common in Amon's private military. Famous for their valuable experience and natural affinity to the cold weather, those Tajara are used by the arcologies' authorities to hunt down the most resilient dregs. These contractors and their families are usually housed in company facilities provided by their employers.

Following the suggestions of the lore team, mainly Haydizzle that helped a lot with it, I have changed how the main Tajara page is structured to make it better to read and see the themes of the species.

The overview has been expanded. The ethnicities section was moved to be after the basic biologic overview, since it is one of the most important parts of the species. A small description of each tajara race was also added to it. History and the factions were also moved up, since they play a big influence in the lore. Religion was put under the societal section. Some outdated stuff was also fixed.

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.

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.
