World Press News - (WPN)
« on: April 27, 2016, 01:31:39 PM »
Since there is a lot of activity behind the scenes, but less to the public - I decided I would as admin add a press group that would offer questions to the teams and publish news snippets. 

Teams can also release press releases that can be inserted into the news update.

Issue 1 - This is just a sample of what I am looking at.   :-X

I will find a better template and create more content for Issue 2.

That said, feel free to give Ad ideas, content, or so on.  I think it will be fun to have a fake newspaper.

Funny that with the kitchen mixer. :D The impact of transnewtonian ages on normal society is really not much visible in the game (other than maybe abstract as +20% economy), yet there must be many applications. We might even get a transnewtonian Newton Metre. ;D


For the fillings, if there isn't always some joke article that you can pull out, you might find use for some lorem ipsum generator, like this: http://generator.lorem-ipsum.info/


Generating news is still kind of extra RP, at least for the Confederation. All we talk about is mostly about stuff that is secretive for good reason, even when it is RP. That might flesh out later however, when the personalities are better shaped, and side-products come of the fluff that generates naturally over time in such a game.

Thanks for the link.

Don't worry, you can always respond to "No comment" to interview questions.

Had the answers half-written when I got busy with some non-transnewtonian stuff, will get something to you shortly.

*** North American Ministry of Defense announce new Peacehoarder PDC ***

A spokeswoman for the MoD announced that two new PDCs would join the Peacehoarder.

"Following the Peacekeeper crisis, the new administration decided to discontinue the Peacekeeper class as a gesture of goodwill. However, as both the Russian Confederation and the Free State Alliance have fielded four ground-based TN sensors installations, it became clear we require some kind of redundancy in our sensors. That role is to be filled by the Peacehoarders".

Media question - Does the Peacehoarder installations have weapon systems, be missile or meson based?


(If you post here it is assumed the media can ask questions ;)

"I'm afraid the precise capabilities of the Peacehoarders are classified."

*** Breaking News : MoD press conference ***

The North American Union Patrol Craft Union, acting has part of a join NAU-FSA task force engaged the terrorist ship Demogorgon within the orbit of Titan. Captain Rogier and his crew showed extreme bravery in closing in to engage the enemy at close quarter. Suffering minor armor damage during the engagement, the Union's meson armament inflicted grievious damage, eventually wrecking the Demogorgon. The surviving terrorists have been handed over to the Free State Alliance for interrogation and trial.

This action demonstrates the ongoing commitment by the NAU to fight terrorism in keep the spacelanes open and safe for all. Captain Rogiers as well as the Captain of the VSS Ali will be awarded the Navy Cross for their bravery under combat.

(Please do create a medal Drgong. I think promotion value of ~30 for the NAU version would be good. I'll let you set the value for the FSA version, since it's a foreign medal).
