"Some unusual news out of the newly united nations of Africa today, where the 
new African governments, united under the fledgling ARA, or African Regional 
Administration, recieved a substantial grant from Japan-based business Mikage 
International. The purpose of the grant is, quote, 'to aid this new union in 
establishing proper facilities for government, as well as an improved 
communications network to reach the people of Africa.'"

"Serwa Mwokozi, the African-born CEO of Mikage, had this to say about the

efforts of the African people toward self-government. In respect for my 
heritage here, and in order to further efforts toward African peace, my 
company is happy to make this charitable contribution, to better the lives of 
the peoples of all nations. No longer should Africa be called the 'third 
world,' a category of lesser nations that have no world power. Her people 
deserve better. With a new government, and new facilities, perhaps they will 
grow and prosper as they richly deserve."

(Back to news:) "Sources say the exact amount of this initial donation is 
upward of fifty-million zenny, though that may be only a drop in the bucket 
where rebuilding African infrastruction is concerned."

RETURN TO THE MILITIA!             Tue Oct 05    Global News Network

        Announcement from Wily Africa (or what's left of it!)

        A manly voice over intones, as if this were a movie, "Long long ago, He 
defended Africa from the Invading White 'Ploid. Though he was of German 
descent, he found a culture and though it was not his own, he praised it, and 
sought to not only protect it, but to teach our Great Citizenry how to protect 
themselves with Gemini Man and Flame Man." An image throughout this voice over 
plays of Robot Masters working with Militiamen in training, which doesn't look 
brutal in any way shape or form. It's quite nice, really.

        "With the aid of the Robot Masters, he taught us how to fight in 
adverse conditions, in deserts, in jungles, with gravity-boosted spears, and 
vibro-enhanced blades. We learned to blend with the shadow, and hide under the 
sand so that we could take our enemies unaware. We became pioneers in enhanced 
cybernetics, and soon our little force of volunteers became a Militia." 
Another series of images. Proud warriors fighting with spears and swords, as 
well as some more conventional weaponry, like high-grade plasma cannons! 
Uniform and tight-knit, the African Warriors stand strong.

        "But then He left, on a secret mission to the depths of a recently 
constructed Empire. Though hastily constructed, and declaring themselves as 
our enemy, He sought only to learn from these people, and understand their 
motives." A Shadow of a well-built man is shown before the light surrounding 
it blinks out entirely.

        "And then he departed that nation, and Daryn Luna has returned to fight 
once more by the side of the African Militia! And you can too! In these 
desperate times, we must become stronger, and more resiliant to the Savage 
Hunters, and the UN Pawns! Join the African Militia! Save the Peace and Honor 
Wily granted us! The Robot Masters have given us a taste of freedom, now it is 
time to show him he deserve it!" Several units of African Militia in 
parade-esque formation stand tall with flagbearers, weapons, some in tribal 
gear, others in more official wear. They all look quite proud. 

        Daryn appears once more, facing the camera cleanly, "Neo Arcadia wasn't 
really that bad of a place, but the leadership doesn't follow the heart of the 
Nation! It doesn't follow the soul! I could not continue working with such 
people. Just like the Coalition, they destroy their souls to protect their 
dreams, but they do not realize thta there are choices out there that can let 
you follow your dream without turning to genocide! To removing all qualities 
in yourselves that you wish to protect in others. That's just not the way!"

        "I've made a few friends in my stay, I think they are really what Neo 
Arcadia needs. Really, Neo Arcadia doesn't want to be a pack of genocidal 
losers, they just want to be good men and women who don't want to see people 
die. They're going about it the wrong way, though. I still think Wily is 
perhaps the only chance for peace, everybody else just keeps falling into the 
same old traps, and my visit to Neo Arcadia just confirms it. Not to harp on 
those guys or anything, it was a mission purely out of love and peace." 

        "I'm looking for heroes, people who will stand by this nation, who 
won't be taken back by corrupt forces. You think Repliforce is all goody now 
that they no longer work for the UN? Yeah right! The UN was bad enough, but 
with Repliforce no longer having any chains, how long till they all go 
Maverick? They are trying to take a nation that doesn't want them, that sounds 
pretty much like the old UN agenda to me. Looks like things haven't changed. 
But I'm looking for Heroes to stand by Africa, to make a great stand against 
the Oppressors. I want people who will respect Africa while protecting them, 
to fight alongside them. And you can be one of those heroes."

        The voiceover again, "This announcement was paid for the Rockers For 
Wily Institute."

Chest's Editorial: Africa          Wed Oct 06    Global News Network

        Chest appears on the screen for another of his segments. On his 
unrealistically clean desk is a small stack of papers that are just for show, 
a cigar and ashtray, and a glass of a purplish liquid. Although there's no way 
to know, it is a glass of Roll Grape. 

        "Now I'm sure you've been hearing all sorts of stories about what's 
going in Africa - I know I've heard a few whoppers from the Robot Master 
propaganda machine." Chest pauses to take a sip of his drink. "Wily would have 
us all believe Repliforce taking over was the worst thing that ever happened 
to the Africans. Repliforce says otherwise." 

        "As usual, it is up to GNN to navigate through the waters of propaganda 
and bring YOU, the viewer, the truth!" Chest lights up his cigar at this 
point. "We went to Africa, we interviewed the people, we got the information. 
First, the pro-Wily news: Life expectancy of the average citizen jumped by 
25%; health care became more accessible; there was free food and water for any 
who needed it; and overall quality of life went up by leaps and bounds. Think 
communism here, folks." 

        "But of course, there was a downside: Rights and freedoms were 
curtailed; people speaking their mind against the Doctor 'vanished', never to 
be seen again. These were hundreds of brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, 
sons and daughters, killed for a right that the rest of the world takes for 
granted." Chest is silent for a few moments, letting that sink in. "And then 
there's the fact that some African people simply did not like the fact that 
their ruler was bent on enslaving the rest of the world." Chest shakes his 
head. "I can't speak for everyone, but I wouldn't give a damn if San Angeles 
Mayor Edgar Friendly treated me like a saint if he then turned around and 
killed and harmed thousands in other parts of the world." 

        "But now the 'safety' of Wily is gone for the Africans. Many are upset 
that the man who took care of them isn't there anymore. But others are glad 
they're no longer under the rule of an evil, evil man." Another puff on his 
cigar. Chest then stares directly into the camera, leaning forward as if 
telling the viewer a secret. "To the African people: I know a lot of you are 
scared that your protector is gone. I know you're uncertain about what 
Repliforce can and will do for you. But I know you're also excited about the 
possibilities. You're now free to do what you want and say what you want. Soon 
you'll have elections, choice, and real freedom. No longer will an evil 
dictator rule you - even if he did help out every so often. These are your 
first steps into a larger world, my African friends. Make the most of it." 

        Chest leans back into his chair, and then says just before the end, 
"And to Repliforce: Don't <bleep!> this up by proving me wrong."

Propaganda                         Wed Oct 06    Global News Network

        After Chest's editorial, during the Robot Master's allowed 'equal 
time', a commercial plays. It starts out black, some peaceful guitar music 
playing. The scene slowly fades in. It's a peaceful park, somewhere in Africa. 
The sun is shining. A few butterflies pass by the camera. The grass is green, 
and it looks like someone has spread out a picnic. The whole scene has that 
glowing, super-nice look to it.
        Suddenly, Dr. Wily runs into view. He's in jeans and a t-shirt, and not 
looking at the camera. He's looking behind him. Something flies out to his 
hands.. it's a football! The camera pans over, and several Robot Masters come 
into view! They are all in civilian clothes, out of their armor. There's Quick 
Man, in jeans and a T-shirt, the one who just threw the football. He's 
grinning and looks happy. Crash Man and Metal Man can be seen as well in the 
background, throwing a frisbee. Sitting on the grass under a tree is Magnet 
Man, playing some kind of portable game system. Even Bass is there, leaning 
back against a tree, a can of beer in his hand. Out of his armor, he looks 
like just a normal human! They all do. The scene is one of astounding 
normalcy, a true family out on a picnic. If one didn't know, one would think 
they were all just humans.
        The scene fades to black. Fading in are file photos. First, a shot of 
Barrage Raptor, bristling with weapons. Then, a shot of Crescent Grizzly, 
holding out his drill-claw hand menacingly. Third, a picture of Burn Dinorex 
flashes up, showing him roaring menacingly towards the camera.
        These pictures too fade to black. White words slowly come into view. 
They read, "Who are the real monsters?" At the same time, a little girl's 
voice speaks the words aloud. The screen then fades to black again, and the 
programming resumes.

Hot Ads from Habanero Cloths       Sun Oct 10    Global News Network
This is Guava with GNN, and a late breaking story, as a modeling contract 
supposedly gone bust has sparked into one of the most succsssful clothing ad 
campaigns ever seen. Nikole Nimick, a modeling agent who had made a 
withstanding contract with the little-known company Habanero Clothes, and then 
having dissappeared from the world picture, apparently made a sudden 
appearance last night at with the model she had promised. The commercials, 
which were made in record breaking time, aired this morning, and Habanero 
Clothing Stores across the globe have witnessed a sudden increase in sales, to 
the point of having to close early due to a lack of merchandise.

The commercials in question very much border on the fine edge of taste, but 
still have proved extremely popular even among the more critical watchers. 
Quick accusations of effective subliminal messages have proved false, and it 
appears that driving force behind the commericals is the model found by Ms 
Nimick, who's... shapely form has caused the buying binge of Habanero brand 

< Two pictures of the model flash on screen: one of her in some skimpy 
lingerie, and then another of her in an evening gown with a -very- happy 
looking man talking to her. The Neo Arcadians will recognize her as their very 
own Dr. Camille Lafayette. >

No one is quite sure where this model came from. Both the mysterious model and 
Ms Nimick have refused to meet with reporters, leaving many only able to watch 
in wonder.

Jewel.. or StarDroid Egg?          Sun Oct 10    Global News Network
This is Obnoxious Lizard reporting for GNN from the New York Wall Street sector!

During the evening, an unknown thief managed to break within a small exposition 
of rare and exotic artifacts. One of these, a large gem from Queen 
Hatshepsut's Temple (see: Egypt), was stolen with little effort. The gem, 
recently acquired by the owner of the exposion, is apparently worth a small 
fortune by itself. However, deeper researches reveal that the current owner of 
the gem did not pay for it; indeed, the man simply hired bounty hunters to 
retrieve the gem after killing its past owner, something which, according to 
the files authorities found, was a very good way to save money. Back on topic, 
security guards engaged the thief, but were quickly outrunned.

An InterPol Agent, William Fetcher, was present when our interrogators arrived. 
He is here right now to describe the event--

So, Mister Fetcher, what happened exactly?
        "Well, I wasn't with the security guards. I just happened to be here, 
and then I noticed this man running from the cops with some round thing-- 
which I quickly identified, with great success if I might add, as a StarDroid 
Egg. Anyhow, I engaged the thief and ran after him, until we reached the 
rooftop of that apartment over there. I managed to take the Egg away from him, 
but then he took it back and left. I wasn't fast enough to follow him."

Did you just say.. StarDroid Egg?
        "I actually believe that New York in itself is the breeding pit for 
these beasts. This Egg is one of many proofs-- it's not a gem. I mean, 
whatever those people told you, it wasn't true. It's a proof that those 
infernal Aliens are planning on colonizing this planet sooner or later, and 
New York is one of the various areas chosen to hold their Eggs."

That's.. very interesting.

To conclude, the thief's identity is unknown, and pictures are not available at 
the time. We urge anyone who knows who this.. jewel.. thief might be to 
contact Agent William Fetcher (<phone number here>) with any information 

This was GNN, reporting live from New York!

Battle in Germany...               Sun Oct 10    Global News Network
A 'breaking news alert', interrupting normal programming, Reporter Ferret being 
on-scene in Germany, "Late in the evening tonight a fight broke out between 
the Maverick Emperor, 'Sigma', and Doctor Light on the border of Germany." A 
short video of the Gunslinger unloading it's arm-cannon into Sigma, and then 
missing him with Gauss Machine Guns after the arm is twisted is shown. 

 "After a fairly long fight, Sigma disabled the Gunslinger and Thomas Xavier 
Light struck him in the face before being impaled by Sigma with the remains of 
his scythe." 
 There is a (relatively) short clip of the Gunslinger being disabled, and 
Doctor Light getting out, proceeding to punch Sigma in the face, before Sigma 
runs Doctor Light through with the remains of his scythe's shaft. 

 "The Maverick Hunter 'Protoman' appeared on-scene and retrieved Doctor Light, 
while the Maverick Hunter 'Axl' retaliated, and was struck by Sigma with a 
plasma-based assault, before Sigma retreated within a medical vehicle." A 
pause, as another clip is shown of Axl getting struck with a jet of plasma 
from a rip in Sigma's chest, appearing to be an unchecked reaction, along with 
Sigma retreating in a transport guarded by Tactical Raccoon and a squad of 
others (OOC: Drones?). 
 "The Maverick Hunter 'Protoman' retrieved Axl, and another member of the 
Maverick Hunter Organization was spotted overhead, before retreating along 
with the other two. The Ride Armor was left behind in the field." There is a 
shot of Bullet retreating, and the Gunslinger laying wrecked on the field. 

 "The current status of Thomas Xavier Light is unknown. Further updates as they 
arrive... Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming." Reporter Ferret 
says, before the television goes back to whatever garbage they were showing-- 
and we all know that Sunday Night programming is horrible.

The Truth: Silenced?               Sat Oct 16    Global News Network
The camera is facing the Sheol pit, where traces of blood and large puddles of 
mechfluid (and various pieces of Sigma) are being cleaned by highly protected 
employees. The news reported gets in front of the camera.

        "This is Trulax Ebola reporting for GNN from the Tartarus Arena. Today, 
the Maverick Emperor himself, Sigma, met an InterPol Agent's challenge, the 
Agent William Fetcher, known for his senseless theories."

        An archived picture of Fetcher doing the boogie is placed on-screen, 
before an archived picture of Sigma being badass is put over it.

        "The fight was rather short. The final few minutes of the fight were 
more than decisive."

        A movie is played here; Fetcher pelts Sigma with sonic shockwaves; the 
Emperor dashes towards him, but missed with a flurry of blows with his Sabre. 
The InterPol Agent sends towards the Emperor yet another blast of sonic and 
gravity waves as pieces of Sigma fly off everywhere-- and then Sigma stabs 
Fetcher. The end. The blade just goes through him. Hence why Sigma is awesome.

        "The Emperor's status is rated as critical, according to what we have 
seen here. The InterPol agent was literally inches away from victory, but the 
Maverick still triumphed. He blinked out immediatly after as an unidentified 
man took Agent Fetcher away. The status of either fighter is currently 
unknown, but rumors say that Fetcher can be found at the Seoul General

Confirmation of Rumour             Tue Oct 19    Global News Network

        And yes, rumour was spelled /correctly/. 

        Tickets go on sale tomorrow for a sudden and rather unexpected concert, 
presenting new music from the classical artist Javelin Whitetail. The 
projected date is Saturday the 19th, beginning around 9 PM EST, which is who 
knows WHAT time on Eurasia. It's /IN SPACE/. The population has less than half 
a week to rearrange their schedules if they wish to attend; and many in the 
music world well might. Rumours fly fast and hard over whether this is 
Javelin's debated 'final project' or not--and the Deer herself doesn't confirm 
or deny a thing, refusing to speak at all to reporters, when she can even be 
found between rehearsals. Thanks to the all-reploid orchestra, they go on for 
nearing twenty hours a day this week; every member has signed a non-disclosure 
agreement, so information is still scarce. 

        However, tickets DO go on sale tomorrow; prices ranging from a few 
hundred zenny for the edge seats to nearly three thousand for the reserved. 
Whatever this is, it's plenty showy. Also note--this date is ONLY A 
SUGGESTION. If there's a faction thingy going on that night, tell me and I'll 
change it. =) I don't want to interfere with anything.

Camera, as he starts talking. "Well, Stone, it seems that a Maverick," insert 
Picture of Reif Falcon "Attacked the populace of Houston, The fight was 
relatively short. The Maverick hunter known as Glaive was on scene, and 
quickly stoped the rain of terror the Reploid tried to unleash." 

 Pictures of Glaive on a ride chaser shooting Reif, more pictures of Glaive 
counter a blast of missiles with a wave of acid, and then the Maverick 
Unleashing a storm of Missiles, which caused the damage. There is another 
picture of Glaive, jumping through the fire, and sending the Maverick in full 

 "Luckily there were no fatalities, and some minor injuries. Glaive was also

slightly, most think to get his injuries repaired. Back to you Stone!"

Fastest Fight in the East          Fri Oct 22    Global News Network
<The anchorman. He speaks.>

        "Good morning, everybody. Last night was the scene of a vicious one on 
one battle between the two speediest land robots involved in the war; Agile 
and Quick Man. The Maverick challenged the Wilybot to a duel on the radio, and 
our crew sped out as fast as they could to try and get good footage. We have 
tape of the events, so let's roll it!

<Tape: The view is of a forested region, moving quickly past the camera. It 
turns, showing the inside of a van, where a reporter Reploid is looking 
outside the window, trying to get a glimpse of /something/. He turns to the 

        "Hi folks, this is Rocky Salamander, coming to you with late breaking 
news! Apparently, Agile and Quick Man have agreed to duel in the Russian 
wilderness, and we're trying to get out there to get some awesome footage of 
what most think will be an amazing fight. I think that we're getting close, so 
we'll..." (The camera man yells something and points out the window) "Ok! 
We've found them, let's get out there and try and get a close up!"

<The reporter and camera man jump out of the van and begin running towards a 
point where a purple and red blur can be seen whipping around. As the get 
close, there's a giant explosion of noise and a clump of trees are ripped out 
of the ground and go flying."

        "All right! This is getting good! It seems that...one of them...it's 
really hard to tell, has blasted the other with a sonic boom! I'm sure glad I 
brought my noise reducers, as this tactic is to be expected. Allright, now, 
let's try and get a close up on one of the fighters!" (He turns, looking at 
the battle, just in time to see the red blur streak away into the distance. 
The purple blur stops for a moment, laughs, and speeds off in the opposite 
direction.) "Um...right. Ok, it looks like the fight's...over. Well, shoot. We 
managed to get here in..."(He looks at his watch)"...four and half minutes, 
and the duel's finished. Just goes to show you how fast these two are. Not 
quite sure who the victor was, either. Damnit. Stupid fast robots and their 
stupid fast fights...I'm trying to get a damn promotion and their not letting 
me get any damn footage..." (He trails off, muttering. Then the camera shuts 

<This was GNN>

Mall of America attacked!          Sat Oct 30    Global News Network
dateline: Bloomington, Minnesota, USA. 

        The Mall of America, the original mega-mall and largest shopping 
district in North America, became a target of Maverick terrorism tonight. An 
air skimmer recognized as the Swordfish broke through the skylight above the 
central square, then landed in the garden below. Several known Mavericks took 
part in the attack, including Flame Stag and Shyster, plus a possible cyborg 
and an as yet unidentified ferret. Eyewitnesses report seeing Dr. Doppler as 
well, though this has not yet been confirmed through security video. The 
Mavericks were repelled by the Maverick Hunters and former rock star Daryn 
Luna. Mall of America General Hospital report 37 injuries but no fatalities as 
of the time this report was filed. Property damage is estimated in the 
millions of zenny.
        The reasons for the attack were not clear. Mall of America Police noted 
that the attack interrupted the celebration of the grand opening of the Pasta 
Presto! store, the 15,000 store to open in the compex, but they believe that 
the timing was coincidental.
