Admiral Lord Simms killed after a long and distinguished service to the Empire.
The Imperial Services have intercepted and serious damaged several DEN ships on the way to the Empire’s home systems. Unfortunately during the action Admiral Lord Simms was injured and reports from the Viceroy indicate he has passed away, fighting the enemies of the Empire like any true Imperial Officer.
The Viceroy has stated that the officers and crew of the DEN ships have been captured and are now awaiting trial at a secret IMP base.
DEN continue to strike at the Empire
Reports are coming in of multiple engagements between the Empire and the Dewiek Elder Nation over the last week. With several battles taking out Empire ships in the Heartland of the CIA.
AFT turn to piracy
The Association of Free Traders have, after a long history of neutrality, turned to piracy this week. AFT Drake boarded an IND ship in the Halo periphery, killing several of the crew in the process.
Independent trader Jarlebanke Langhofdi immediately took to the public communication channel demanding an answer to why supposedly peaceful traders had killed his crew and taken his ship.
The AFT remain silent over the attack.
Brotherhood Temples reopen
Across the peripheries BHD bases have once again started to broadcast their messages of faith to the True One. With the Lord Inquisitor accepting the title of Defender of the Faith the Brotherhood are back in business, the business of faith.
Viceroy calls for new recruits
Viceroy Jones has called for any new or existing beings that wish to pursue a career in the Imperial Services to sign up for a life of adventure, exploration and photon cannon wielding mayhem. While naturally protecting the empire from it’s enemies.
Announcement from the DNA.
We show great pleasure in announcing the birth of the Free Naplian Nation:
Free Naplian Nation
For years now, the DNA, De neo-Naplian Alliantsie (66), has been striving for the plight of naplians, and promoting peace and cooperation in this galaxy.
It has been working hard to realise Yahn Wodenzoon's dream of peace, and the cultural identity of neo-naplianism.
From the ashes of decay, the affiliation rose to create the free naplian settlements of Aladdin, in the Outer Naplia periphery.
It has proven itself in galactic diplomacy, and is the Nation State heading up the newly formed Free Naplian Nation.
It issues charters by treaty for membership in the Free Naplian Nation, based on consensus by all members.
Recently, the ORE Mega-Corporation, Off-world Research & Exploration (69), has been reintroduced to the galaxy by the entrepreneuring naplian CEO Allister Shadestar.
In a short time, he has risen from obscurity to turn his affiliation into a major economic power in the Coreward Arm periphery.
Deftly filling the void left by the sudden demise of the Dominion, ORE's claim on Harlong system attests to its economic prowess.
It has has been instrumental in launching the Free Naplian Nation, and is its first chartered Mega-Corp.
The Free Naplian Nation shows pride at steering a neutral course in galactic affairs and promoting prosperity through cooperation.
Within the Free Naplian Nation, members and chartered affiliations retain complete autonomy as long as they work for peace and cooperation.
We are a grand alliance putting these principles into practice, and the DNA offers its diplomatic assistance where required.
Our political organisation is from the ground up, and intends to promote the cause of naplians and neo-naplians alike.
Like the sacred plant, it is the roots that nourish us. The people are the foundation we build upon.
While the stem holds us up, it is in the canopy of leaves that we bear fruit. Ever striving higher.
Any neutral and peaceful affiliation may apply to be a chartered aff within the Free Naplian Nation.
If you show interest in joining you may contact any member, or contact the DNA's Foreign Ministry directly.
