I'll look into it Mox and see what I can come up with today.
We need to get some BBS's to give the Sohnen, Otas and Goner seperatists more depth. To pave the way for the plot, the MSY and the like.
Suggest numerous small BBS's like:
-Unknown ship sightings (2)
-David vs Goliath Battle reports (small Sohnen Seperatist M6 destroying a Titan or Orca or whatever....DONT NAME THE SOHNEN IN THIS!, name them Unknowns or any synonym in that regard). (2)
-Goner armed wing sightings (2)
-Terran Argon negotiations (1)
-Dyson Sphere reports (unknown artifact)
-Otas HQ reports
-Otas rumors (1)
-Other races worrying about Argon/Terran involvement (1)
-Sohnen Loyalists explained a little...prep messages..sightings, confusion to these not being so advanced.
i came up with something, still needs some adjustment and spelling corrections i don´t have time for at. If you like it, feel free to implement it
Code:Pirate Raid quickly stopped when solar power plant m in Aladna hill yesterday came under atack of a quite large pirate raid unit, the station owner was about to send his last prayer. Suddenly a small ship, later descibed as either a m4 or m3 jumped in. Surprisingly, it headed direkt for the pirate group and startet atacking them. It opened fire, and while the numerous turrets took care of the m5´s, the immense front gun humiliated the novas. Within seconds of unbeliveable intense combat, The smaller pirate vessels were simply blown away. The Pirate m6, realizing that it had no chances to fight this superior attacker, started its jumpdrive. Few seconds before the jumpdrive ignition, the unknown ship launched a unbelieveable powerfull missile that eventually hit the m6 the moment the jump started. The ship and the missile completely dissaperared, but bypassing freigter captains in Split Fire reported a huge, out of nowhere coming explosion blasting away half of the asteroid field. further investigations showed fine dust of pirate origin. Resons for this unexpected help are objekt of speculation, most people think of it as beeing some kind act of revenge. As the ship didn´t fit into any common building scheme and was using point to point jumpdrive, there´s a lot of curiousity regarding the race origin of this ship. The station owner claims that the ship even belongs to a yet to discover race - an assumption that no rational beeing can agree with. [inserta****ingnamehere] - Argon Security Department
Nice job Gepard, which ship are you referring to though?
Here's one I started on earlier:
The ship in question is the Sohnen M3.Code:Split officals are investigating sightings of an unknown ship, a leaked report revealed today. According to sources within the Split hierarchy, Sai't Lt, a freelance Split trader, saw the unknown ship while making a journey through Argon space. The trader noticed the ship while scanning local traffic in a sector close by Thyn's Abyss, thought to be Black Hole Sun, and moved in closer to investigate. When he got within 5 km of the other ship, the ship simply vanished off the Gravidar, and despite Sai't Lt's efforts, could not be located again. This report is adding to Split officials concerns of a secret Boron cloaking technology that is under development. Boron authorities have denied all knowledge, suggesting instead that it is a Split ploy to launch an offensive against Oceans Fantasy, in their desire to expand Split borders.
Very nice work guys!
Moko, those kind of reports are realy exactly what I was looking for..small but exciting
Gepard, also a realy promising effort...like you said it needs some grammar structuring (perhaps a native English speaker can look into this?) but when thats settled it can make it into the list without doubt.
Glad you like it. Will see what else I can come up with later on when I get some time. If I get a proper chance, I'll look though Gepard's reports and see what I can do to correct the grammar.
A Terran and Argon meeting rumor:
Mox: checked for grammar.Code:A Leaked report from Terracorp Headquarters has begun to confirm rumors of an impending military agreement between Argon and Terran officials. The document identified a meeting that was hosted aboard the Terracorp flagship recently. The Terracorp ship flew an Argon diplomat to a prearranged point in Circle of Labor, where it was to meet with a Terran vessel. At the meeting, discussions of how the Terran can provide support to the Argon military forces was discussed, mainly centered around weapon and shielding technology. It was also leaked that the Terracorp representatives did not like some aspects of the proprosal (though what specificaly they disliked was not detailed), and have refused to aid in any more talks. Argon senators have refused to comment on such rumors.
Why would top-secret and important negotations be held aboard a corporations' ship? Why not a Argon Naval vessel?
I am not your average, everyday noob.
