Taiwan Terror                      Thu Jun 01    GNN
"And now, a full report of yesterdays assault on Taiwan by the robot 

         "Reports states that the industrialist capital was taken off guard as 
the reavers emerged from the sea, coming out and marching on the land towards 
the large industries that make Taiwan what it is. The military force, by 
itself, was unable to stop the reavers from advancing, and it was up to those 
who had arrived to help out."

         "On scene was Jet Stingray and a squad of his most elite, them dealing 
with the reavers while he went after Flora Man. Sword Man was also there, and 
took out a mobile production facility of what were reported to be a self 
destructing variety. Reports also indicate that there was a battle between 
Pugilation Man and Cryogenic Man early on. The large robot gentleman, however 
lost and went down."

         "Jet Stingray withdrew but not before Flora Man took heavy damage, in 
which he was finished off by a member of Repliforce, Desert Dolphin. Sword Man 
finished with Cryogenic Man once the reavers were taken care of. Damage done 
by the mammoth like reavers there was rather focused onto a single industry, 
the building under heavy damage but still standing. A brace was put about it 
to make sure it, while being repair, finds itself giving way."

         "One can only wonder how long these assaults will continue until they 
are stopped. Today marks the last day of the week that, one week ago, the 
being Ra Moon gave us a week to survive as well!"

         "Taiwan is otherwise fine, military still on high alert, or what is 
left of it, for any future assaults into their territory from China."

         "And this, was the news!" </Next news!>

World On Knife's Edge              Thu Jun 01    GNN

< Everywhere. >

With Ra Moon's deadline passing with Thursday's dawn, much of the world 
prepares for what it feels will be yet another last stand against the 
darkness. This will be the third threat of "significant danger" to the 
existence of all life on Earth in the last ten years, according to the UN 
Ministry of Cataclysmic Events.

Religions that believe we are presently living in the End Times have brought 
together their flocks into houses of worship to pray either for the events to 
occur as have been ordained, or for a savior or saviors to appear to prevent 

Other faiths have taken a more proactive approach. Five thousand Juggalos have, 
over the past week, massed outside of Detroit, armed with what appears to be 
high-end military equipment. Early Wednesday morning, they began to advance 
from their position to the west, apparently heading to the Tower of Light in 
anticipation of a final confrontation. Their exact position is unknown.

Martial law has been declared by most governments around the world to maintain 
order and prevent civil disturbances from making the matter worse. The whole 
of the world appears to have stopped to prepare in their own way for what they 
believe is the end of days.

We have had our one more chance; now the world must contend with the final 
strike of the eclipse.

Post-Ra Moon Ad                    Fri Jun 02    GNN
The commercial plays around the world SECONDS after Ra Moon is announced 
 The screen starts off black. A soft female voice begins to play. "If you are 
listening to these words? Then Ra Moon has just been defeated. The world is 
safe. Thanks to the efforts of many, the Earth is able to continue to thrive 
as it has for millions of years. To celebrate one of the most epic struggles 
in history, come to one of the few places on Earth totally untouched by war." 
 Now something fades into view... Atlantis? Unlike it once was, now the stores 
are busying with life and the stylish Palace of Waters seems to have people 
coming in and out of it. "Welcome to Atlantis. While discovered years ago, 
only now has one had the vision to turn it into an underwater paradise." 
 Jet Stingray appears on the camera, walking down the Entrance Hall. "Hello, 
people of the world. I'm Jet Stingray... And this is my gift to the world. 
Atlantis, one of the coolest places in the world. From the elegant Palace of 
Waters where the best can rest to the peace and calm of Neptune's Park to the 
best food under the sea, Atlantis is the place for you. And in celebration of 
saving the world, the entrance fee for those entering will be waved for the 
first hundred thousand people. So, come see the magic, feel the love, enjoy 
the dream, come to Atlantis." 
 The logo for Atlantis appears, along with small print saying something about 
Repliforce, Hunters, and Irregulars are eligible for special deals along with 
contact information.

Eclipse's Denouement               Fri Jun 02    GNN

Plum appears on GNN, looking prim and proper. "Good morning, planet Earth. This 
is GNN."

"On Thursday night, the collective military might of the entire world met Ra 
Moon and his Reavers in battle. Because they were victorious, we are here 
today. Humans and robots put aside their differences and found common cause in 
survival. Our victory was narrow, and was uncertain until the very end. 
However, we overcame it, together, with courage and heart."

"The concert was held to draw Ra Moon and his Robot Gentlemen in. The enemy 
struck with all the might it had, executing a multi-tiered assault. One group 
struck at the bunker where the performances were being held, one group 
attacked the stage where the music was being played from, and the largest 
group attempted to destroy everything in sight."

"Maverick Hunters, Repliforce soldiers, Robot Masters, Irregulars, Neo 
Arcadians and Mavericks fought alongside each other to defeat the Robot 
Gentlemen and the Legion. Though their ideologies often radically differed, 
their desire to survive outweighed their differences on this night. They 
fought bravely, though death was never far from them."

"The Omnidroids were destroyed, and the Robot Gentlemen were slain, save two. 
Pugilation Man, who had betrayed Ra Moon to protect Roll, fought alongside the 
defenders of the Earth against his former comrades. Just recently, Flora Man 
has been recovered by medical teams and remains in critical condition. 
Attempts to break any remaining Wilycode on Flora Man are not expected to 
begin until Doctor Light has had an opportunity to rest, and given an 
opportunity to examine Flora Man for residual Ra Moon energy."

"As for Ra Moon, Mega Man engaged him in single combat, supported by many 
people. Manifesting a new armor mode, Mega Man did battle with his 
mecha-animal companions at his side. They destroyed Ra Moon's body and fought 
him back to a trap mechanism created by Dr. Light called the Gilgul Device. 
This machine bound Ra Moon's energy into it, allowing it to be sent into space 
to parts unknown."

"The darkness has passed. Life has succeeded in the face of absolute 
destruction. Thank you, Mega Man, for saving us once more."

WANTED: PROTOMAN                   Fri Jun 02    GNN

        The United Nations, along with many other nations in the world, has 
released an arrest warrant for Blues "Protoman" Light for crimes against 
humanity and Reploidkind. The major points in the rap sheet are: 

- 2 counts of 2nd degree murder: Detective John Boone & Mr. Zane Sandoval. 

- 3 counts of treason: Japan, San Angeles, and the United States of America. 

- 1 count of destruction of wildlife: BC cabin. 

- 1 count of destruction of property causing death: Tartarus. The UN is unsure 
of how to charge here given Tartarus' status, so for now is only including the 
27 killed that held citizenship in other, lawful countries. 

- 1 count of destruction of military assets and personnel: Fortress V. Death of 
19 Repliforce soldiers. Lieutenant Shockwave Turtle, Corporal Lance Cougar, 
Sergeant Bulldozer Moose, Special Agent Sneak Possum, Private Sneak 
Salamander, Private Flint Timber, Private Sea Cucumber, Private Valiant Hawk, 
Private Artillery Anteater, Private Whirlwind Tasmanian Devil, Private War 
Wallaby, Private Quick Gazelle, Private Gauss Caribou, Private Hyper Hippo, 
Private Lasso Zebra, Private Midnight, Private Fog Sheep, Private Utility 
Raccoon, & Private All Terrain Orangutan. 

- 1 count of destruction of property: Minnesota. Tower of Light. There has been 
talk about charging Protoman with the 2nd degree murder of Mirror Orange, who 
died during the Tower of Light raid that Protoman led. But given Mirror's Blue 
Mirage status at the time and the complexity of the Mirror/Mirage situation, 
it probably will not be added. 

- Charges concerning the attack on Able City are likely to follow a planned 
meeting with the Able City leadership. 

- Prosecutors will also have to wade through the legal mud that is Protoman's 
previous crimes from when he was Break Man, as well as crimes committed before 
joining Ra Moon. There's the fact that previous attempts to convict him 
failed, combined with the fact that like it or not, most governments tolerated 
Protoman and did little to bring him to justice. More charges may follow 
depending on how they decide to proceed.

Tent City Attacked                 Sat Jun 03    GNN

        "Earlier today, in the Midwest, the 'Tent City' which Rock Light had 
first assembled was recently attacked by the Robot Masters, let by none of 
than Enker himself. It started when Enker made a routine visit to Tent City, 
but instead, declared it was an attack. The Robot Master drones left in the 
area turned against the forces there, and began to run amok. Other Robot 
Masters attended, including Ice Man, Star Man, Wave Man, Tomahawk Man, and Cut 
Man. As well, there was one accomplice that was not a Robot Master on scene. 
Reports say that he used cards as weapons." The reporter takes a breath. 

        "It is currently unknown for why the attack was necessary, as Enker 
made no mention of the goal while Robot Masters begin to kick over, rip open, 
and destroy tents seemingly looking for something among the Tent City. The 
resistance which finally pushed the Robot Masters were the Maverick Hunters 
themselves Axl, Magma Dragoon, Dr. Cossack, Steel Massimo, and Heal Bluebird, 
aided by Eugene Chaud of SciTech. 

        Most of the Robot Masters made a quick get-a-way, retreating from Tent 
City after one of the many Robot Masters on scene had found what they were 
looking for, leaving them to retreat from the surrounding area. The majority 
of the drones were destroyed by Dr. Cossack, using the Winnebago Of Justice as 
a battering ram, running over and crushing drones as he went. This is also on 
record of what defeated Robot Master Elite Enker. 

        This reporter still asks the question, why did they do this /so close/ 
to the defeat of The Destroyer?"

but was interrupted almost immediately by some newly arrived. We got witnesses 
who identified these other people to be Spark Mandrill of the Mavericks and 
Francine McDonald from Neo Arcadia. The battle quickly got out of hand as the 
bank soon after these peoples arrival almost collapsed as the front wall was 
crushed by an unknown source. Knowledge of what happened after that is scarce 
but we got people saying they saw Wave Man and Dust Man drive of in a van 
which was probably filled with the banks money."
        "The death count is at the moment 18 dead and 20 more seriously 
injured. Property damage is over several million dollars as not only the bank 
was outmost destroyed but also as the streets had been drenched in gallons of 
water before the actual robbery. Money stolen from the bank can also be 
counted to millions. The exact number have yet to be released."

The Robot Master Bass sought out Mega Man for battle during a parade this 
evening at Disney Universe. Bass was assisted by a rogue Mickey-class ride

Mavs Attack Aussie Shipyard        Tue Jun 06    GNN

A Maverick attack force struck the naval yards at Hobart on the island of 
Tasmania today, dealing a strong blow to the Australian Defense Force's (ADF) 
navy. The attack, led by Sigma, focused on causing physical damage to the 
shipyards by attacking fuel stores and ships in drydock.

Many sailors and construction workers were caught unaware during the opening 
salvos. Casualty counts are expected to be in the hundreds, with thousands 
injured. Some of the casualties showed signs of being intentionally maimed, an 
increasingly common practice among Mavericks to encourage cybernetic 

The damage to the ADF's naval capacity is said to be 'severe', though a

Transitional Riots In Mexico       Tue Jun 06    GNN
(Hottest report of the evening!)
A statement was made earlier today by now former President Elpizo this evening, 
in the company of numerous visitors and officials from the United States, 
Australia, and the United Nations. Queries and issues raised about the loss of 
his military hold in the capitol had been answered: he officially relinquished 
power to a new government said to be in approval of all three outside parties 
present. A candidate for the new office of President, Marco Macho, had cited 
seeking to help reconcile the issues raised between Aztlan and the rest of the 
world as his primary goal.
To the surprise of some, additionally, he cited that this was all part of an 
"unconditional surrender" by Elpizo. The former President and his forces 
quickly escaped in the ensuing riot incited by his present forces. Gunfire 
soon rang out, and the governmental representatives and candidates were 
quickly rushed to safety.
Among the United States and United Nations soldiers gathered to apprehend 
former president Elpizo upon relinquishing his dwindling political power 
following the fall of the military base stationed in the city, there have been 
reports of almost seventy injuries, with only two being recorded as "serious" 
due to electrical shock. Some peacekeeping equipment failed as result of 
exposure to "heavy vibrations" but otherwise no deaths have been reported. 
There has been no word on casualties from the remainders of the "Neo Arcadia" 
army under Elpizo.
None of the would-be representatives of the new Mexican government, including 
the frontrunner of the upcoming elections, Marco Macho, were available for 
comment due to security reasons. The rioting that has broken out in the 
Business District of the capitol city is reportedly being contained and, 
quoting an anonymous speaker for the United States army, "peace will be 
restored in an expeditious manner. We were prepared for this scenario for 
months on end."
Reportedly, the name of the nation will be turning back to Mexico, with their 
old national flag being reinstated. The capitol, Mexico City, first renamed 
"Neo Arcadia" with Elpizo's ride to power, is reportedly going to be 
rechristened "Aztlan" in memorial for the positive things the two-year regime 
of Neo Arcadia had brought it. Further announcements are said to be 
forthcoming on the future of the nation in light of tonight's events.

Hundreds are injured and several police officers are dead this evening in the

targeting the government safehouse that James Houseman V was being held in, 
took place late Wednesday night.

The attack was apparently led once again by Sigma himself. The strike saw the 
deployment of the large sonic mechanaloid used during the final battle against 
Ra Moon, as well as several notorious Maverick operatives.

At the peak of the battle, Thomas Houseman arrived to assist allied forces in 
battling the Mavericks. However, Thomas was deceived by holographic subterfuge 
and was killed by Sigma in a gory display. Shortly afterward, the Mavericks 
fled the scene in the face of reinforcements.

James Houseman V was not injured in the attack. His current whereabouts are

Protoman 'Not An Imminent Threat'  Thu Jun 08    GNN

< GNN -- Story gets partially drowned out by the Houseman killing >

In a speech in the Rose Garden early this morning, President Seers spoke to the 
public about the alleged arch-traitor Protoman.

"This office has received evidence that Protoman was being forced against his 
will to serve Ra Moon," Seers said. "Ra Moon exploited vulnerabilities in 
Protoman's existing code to bend him to his will, and then compelled him to 
act against American interests. Despite this overwhelming power, Protoman 
worked to resist Ra Moon's control and was a critical part of the defeat of Ra 
Moon at Tora Bora."

Seers claimed that Doctor Light had 'compelling evidence' of this tampering and 
had presented it to him and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Agreement was reached 
that concluded based on the steps Doctor Light had already taken that Protoman 
no longer posed an imminent threat to the safety of the United States of 

"I encourage other leaders around the world to recognize the bravery and 
personal sacrifice of Protoman during this last incident," Seers said. "I have 
signed a pardon for Protoman to finally completely expunge his criminal 
record, so that he may finally freely enjoy the privileges that come with 
being an American citizen."

Other world leaders have reacted in a lukewarm way to Seers' statements. A 
spokesperson for the United Nations stated that any judgment on the Protoman 
matter would be withheld until Doctor Light presented his evidence to them.

Internally, Seers' statements have touched off a firestorm of controversy in 
the Congress. Marvin Thackery (D-AL) has been among the loudest detractors of 
the "amnesty for a mad-dog killer", claiming that "once again, the Maverick 
Hunters are able to kill, steal and rampage at will, and the United States 
does nothing to stop it ... the [Seers] adminstration has done nothing to 
check the excesses of this extra-legal insurgent group."

Thomas Houseman Mourned            Thu Jun 08    GNN

Informal memorial services were held this morning for Thomas Houseman across 
London. The services, primarily led by Roundheads, took the form of 
unauthorized parades through the streets of men bearing the red-and-blue flag 
of Oliver Cromwell alongside the Union Jack. Non-Roundhead citizens from all 
walks of life also took part in the parades, some as spectators, many as 
active participants.

"Thomas was a good boy," said a Briton in his early 40s who asked not to be 
identified. "He was fighting the good fight against the crooks and the 
Mavericks and all of them. Somebody had to stand up and fight. Maybe now we'll 
get some action from Downing Street on it."

No arrests were made during the parades, though several groups of loiterers 
were dispersed by police when they seemed poised to commit disturbances.

A candlelight vigil will be held on Friday at St. Mary's in Islington for 
Thomas Houseman and the police officers killed during Sigma's Wednesday attack.

Thomas Houseman will be interred in an undisclosed location at an undisclosed 
time, much like his father, to prevent disturbances. In lieu of flowers, 
donations may be made in Thomas Houseman's name to the United Kingdom's 
Maverick War Widows and Orphans Fund.

Chaos in Brazil                    Thu Jun 08    GNN

"The Replitech Reploid factory in Eastern Brazil is now a burning ruin today, 
as the first strike of the now-committed terrorist group Neo Arcadia reduced 
it to a horrible wreck. Vicious 'Commander' Elpizo was seen outside battling 
welcome support in the form of the Irregulars Compass Man and pirate princess 
Tron Bonne, deploying from their aerial vehicles, as they forced the commander 
into a retreat covered by a large ape. 

However, a Neo Arcadian group penetrated the production line and engaged 
dangerous Maverick Boomer Kuwanger <<footage here of Francine McDonald 
fighting Boomer>> and set explosives, tearing through the facility. No 
survivors have been reported thus far. It seems to be the beginning of the 
campaign of destruction and terror against robotic life-forms that the new Neo 
Arcadian army will wreak."

Sydney Historical District Attack  Fri Jun 09    GNN

< GNN >

Hundreds are dead and thousands are injured after a sudden Robot Master attack 
in Sydney's historical district on Thursday night. The attack, led by Dr. Wily 
himself from the "Quint Blimp", was focused on causing collateral damage and 
injuring civilians.

The centerpiece of the attack was an abortive bombing of the Sydney Opera 
House. Repliforce and Maverick Hunter units assisted the Australian Defense 
Forces (ADF) in fighting back the Robot Masters. Many of them were brought 
offline, though all were expected to escape via drone retrieval or through 
energy ring transmission.

Most troubling about the attack was that several Robot Masters appeared to have 
augmented capabilities. The Robot Masters Cut Man and Tomahawk Man underwent 
transformations to show them in new, dangerous modes. These transformations 
are expected to have been powered by Force Metal.

The historical district has been shut down by the military while it is secured. 
Traffic has been re-routed around the area. Normal business is not expected to 
resume in the historical district until next week. The opera house suffered 
explosive damage to its interior, but has been judged structurally sound. 
Repairs are set to begin immediately.

Doctor Wily remains at large.

World Opinion Mixed On Protoman    Fri Jun 09    GNN

< Bundled with the Australia story. >

General opinion of the Protoman situation across the world is mixed. Above the 
Rio Grande, Americans and Canadians are generally cool toward Protoman. 65% 
believe that some kind of mind control was involved in Protoman's betrayal of 
the allies, with the majority of those favoring the mind control claim being 
humans. Throughout Mexico and South America, only a third of those polled 
believe the mind control hypothesis.

Britons, having a strong affiliation with Repliforce, tended to believe that 
Protoman acted alone in working for the Destroyer: 59% did not believe the 
mind control hypothesis. Throughout the rest of Europe, knowledge of the 
betrayal was more limited, and reliable poll results were not available.

Africans generally believed Protoman was being mind controlled, citing the Wily 
experience as their primary reason. 82% agreed with the statement "Any robot 
can be reprogrammed to do anything." This sentiment was shared generally 
through the Middle East.

Russians were almost evenly split on the matter; the margin of error in the 
poll indicate they generally could go either way based on further 
investigation. Indians were indifferent to the situation, answering "Don't 
Know" in the greatest numbers (35%). This contrasts with the Pacific Rim 
where, especially in Japan, public opinion is very sympathetic to Protoman. 
74% of Japanese citizens believe that Protoman was being controlled by an 
outside force.

Australians generally did not believe Protoman was being controlled: 70% did 
not believe the mind control hypothesis, and over half of those polled favored 
that Protoman should be decommissioned as a precautionary measure in any event.

New Jet Movie!                     Fri Jun 09    GNN
<The following starts being shown on the Internet and movie previews alike.> 
 The screen is black with nothing on it. Quietly, the announcer speaks. 
"Critics have been saying for years that Jet's roles have had him tight cast, 
his facial expressions lacking and his mannerism to lifeless. This July, he'll 
take those comments to heart and show you a new face." 
 Suddenly with a twenty-something man is shown from the waist up against a 
white backdrop. He's got a decent build and the face and hair style similar to 
that of Mark McGrath. The man looks down, then back up to the camera before 
offering with Jet's voice, "So, this is what having ACTUAL balls feels like." 
 The announcer speaks again. "From the director of 'Three Reploids and a Baby' 
and 'There's something about MA-23', a movie about a Stingray..." Shot of Jet 
walking down the sidewalk as a reploid. "...A girl...." Cue random human 
Hollywood starlet walking down the sidewalk in the opposite direction as Jet. 
Jet watches her as she goes by and continues to watch her until he walks into 
a lamp post and falls over. "...And what some people are willing to do to get 
the Girl of Their Dreams." 
 Switch to 'reploid' Jet being strapped to a table with an odd helmet which has 
wires connected to 'human' Jet in classic Mad Science style. A guy that looks 
different from Dr. Wily JUST enough to avoid a lawsuit flips a switch causing 
lots of special effects to go down as well as going into a series of clips. 
First is one of 'Human' Jet talking with a human friend about rules of the 
bathroom, the second one is about 'Human' Jet making mistakes about being a 
reploid to the love interest and making wacky/lame excuses to cover up for it 
and finally human Jet trying to fight a Maverick reploid with resulting in him 
getting beatdown in the classic comedic style as the announcer says "Relearn 
why love hurts in..." Cue title of 'To Err is Human'. "To Err is Human." 
 Cue to Human Jet farting and sniffing the air, looking confused as all get out

Gimialla Mines - Giga City: Attack Sat Jun 10    GNN

        "The Robot Masters were up to their old tricks once again yesterday, as 
the Whale Sub surfaced in Giga City, not too far from the Gimialla Mines. Many

mining with their pick axes, as well as the joes stopping the course of the 
mechanaloids which are used to mine the many different shafts in the Gimialla 
mine. However, shortly after the appearance of the Robot Masters, help had 
arrived in numerous accounts in the form of Irregulars, Repliforcers, and even 
Hunters. Ferham and Epsilon were spotted in the air, along with Storm Owl and 
Singularity Shrike, including Prismatic Spider and Masked Lion as well. 
Epsilon seemed to stay to the air when the rest hurried inwards down the mine 
shafts in an attempt to stop the Robot Masters from retrieving the precious 

        In a heated battle, many of the drones were deactivated, littering the 
mine shaft, as well as a good amount of Robot Masters which committed the

of Force Metal they had gotten away with is uncertain for the moment. However, 
no matter the amount nothing good may come of it."

Aussie Airport Attacked            Sun Jun 11    GNN

< GNN >

A Maverick attack on an airport near Flindlers Ranges, Australia on Saturday 
killed ten ADF power armor soldiers and caused six others to be captured. The 
attack focused on destroying airport property and aircraft, and is said to 
have done millions of zenny in damage to the facilities.

Maverick Hunter Signas, accompanied by the Gunslinger ride armor, assisted ADF 
forces in driving back the attack. The helpful response of the Maverick 
Hunters, combined with an effective ground evacuation plan, is credited with 
preventing any civilian casualties.

The six soldiers who were captured are being treated as dead by the ADF. Their 
names are not being released publically for reasons of national security.

"These brave men and women are no doubt being tortured and experimented on by 
Maverick scientists," according to a statement released by the ADF. "We assure 
the Mavericks that we have never had a policy of taking prisoners, and we will 
continue to exterminate you with the utmost vigor."

NA Rally Falls Flat In London      Sun Jun 11    GNN

< GNN >

A Neo Arcadian rally in eastern London on Sunday afternoon was widely believed 
to have been "ineffective", according to observers. The rally, featuring a 
haphazard pyrotechnic display followed by a short statement by terrorist 
leader Elpizo, was unauthorized and caused traffic disruption in the area for 
several hours afterward while the rubble from the display was dealt with.

Elpizo invoked the memory of deceased local folk hero Thomas Houseman in his 
statements. "[He was] a an who sought to make his life better. One who did not 
support the onslaught of the oppressive machine ... Thomas Houseman died 
trying to defend your country from a reploid [Sigma]! A reploid that can 
infect every single reploid to do its bidding! How can you trust something so 

Londoners were "unimpressed" with the presentation. A Roundhead named 'Jack' 
found the presentation "insulting. Just bloody insulting. Elpizo and his 
***hole boys have been skulking around, picking up our fringe elements ever 
since Thomas hit the ground. If I hear one more motherf***ing word about 
'human unity' out of those brownshirt boys of his, I'll go upside their heads. 
Fascists, the lot of them. Thomas spent his life fighting that element. Now 
look at what we get. Pissing all over his name."

Submarine Stolen                   Wed Jun 14    GNN

        "Today, from a base in the Northeast of the United States, a Submarine 
was stolen, being known as a regular submarine, one that is fully functional. 
It was said that the guards were able to knock out the ability of it to 
submerge, but unable to stop the engine. People are still skeptical from the 
initial report. However, the job done was linked to Yakuza. 

        Yesterday, they had tried to do the exact same heist, but was foiled, 
so they had tried it again. Two of the known Yakuza members were on scene, as 
well as an Irregular named Chronoton Duck. However, even with the aid in 
trying to throw the Yakuza off the submarine, the Irregular did not succeed, 
retreating before being felled. 

        The Submarine for now had disappeared from radar, and any reports on 
where it may be would be very helpful. However, if the Yakuza had truly taken 
it, this reporter thinks that it may be harder to find now. The base which the 
submarine was stolen from has stepped up guard duty, many taking double

President Dion Seers' approval rating has slid since the end of the alien 
crisis, now hovering between 60 and 62 percent. During the month of May, Seers 
enjoyed a nearly 85 percent approval rating, but has since taken political 
damage from his controversial pardon of Blues "Protoman" Light. Political 
opponents have used the cozy relationship the administration has developed 
with the Maverick Hunters to make claims of corruption. A slowing economy and 
continuing troubles overseas have also softened Seers' approval numbers. With 
mid-term elections approaching in November, political observers have commented 
that the opposition may take control of Congress.


Prime Minister Lauchlan Cooper spoke on Monday about the increased presence of 
hostile forces in and around Australia. "We will not be cowed into 
submission," said Cooper, "and we will not submit to terrorists or thugs. We 
have been struck by cowards, but we stand strong against them. Each time, we 
drive them back, and the time will come when we extinguish them for good." 
Cooper also awarded the six soldiers believed to have been captured by the 
Mavericks posthumous awards for valor and gallantry in defending the Flinders 
Ranges airport.


Speculation in the commodity markets have driven up the costs of numerous types 
of industrial materials by a margin of nearly 33% since the beginning of June. 
Products such as titanium and various organic plastics have been the most 
impacted by the price hikes. These materials are commonly used in robotic 
construction, and are being speculated upward by investors concerned about 
terrorist attacks against them. The WTO is investigating potential illegal 
price gouging by numerous firms.


Increased Maverick activity in the United Kingdom and in Australia has created 
a shortfall in security personnel. The unlikely beneficiaries of this 
international turmoil, according to labor experts, are mercenaries. While some 
are self-employed, many of these individuals have started formal businesses to 
take advantage of health care and retirement packages. Lobbyists for the 
mercenary industry are pushing for a formal recognition of the "adventurer" 
career in secondary school career counseling tests.

Belated Rumors!                    Wed Jun 28    GNN
"...was quoted as saying, 
was unavailable for comment. And Fat."

 "In other news, rumors pouring out of the Rocky Mountains indicate that the 
mad Dr. Wily, international terrorist and deluded maniac... may have lost his 
will for good. Conflicting reports state that he was defeated and spared in 
shame in an epic cane duel, that his mind had been shattered by the sheer 
force of justice, or that his mustache has been cut off."

"The First Church of Bass was quick to issue a statement indicating these 
rumors to be nothing more than heresy, and they promised inquisitions. The 
Robot Masters themselves have had no official comment, but reports indicate 
Dr. Wily to be "angry" and "unhappy". Some even claim he's sounding 
"despondent" and "depressed" to the point of "tears" ".""

"The incident apparently took place at the behest of Dr. Light, the norse god 
Odin, and for all intensive purposes is shrouded in mystery. Detailed reports 
did come to light... but they were confusing and dismissed by exports. Storm 
Owl was unavailable for comment."

"In other news..."

FV in Friendly Skies Once Again    Wed Jun 28    GNN

        In other news, Repliforce held a press conference to announce the 
repairs of the Fortress V, which was damaged and nearly destroyed in Giga City 
by Ra Moon and his evil forces. A Repliforce spokesmech said that with it once 
again in the skies, Repliforce's ability to deploy troops and create a 
fortified defense in any location is greatly enhanced. The spokesmech added 
that the first priority is to help with the relief and rebuilding of China, 
which suffered greatly at the hands of Ra Moon. 

        OOC: Owl.

Robot Masters Attack Again         Thu Jun 29    GNN
A reporter is reading from a paper at her desk. "...Thus breaking the world 
record for the largest cookie ever baked.."

The reporter shuffles papers and clears her throat. "In other news, a Robot 
Master raid was repelled by Repliforce personel in northern California late 
last night. Gate Man, Gyro Man, Gravity Man, Enker and what is best described 
as a color-shifting Giant Met crashed a shuttle into a Repliforce storage 
warehouse and began looting the place. Repliforce personel Hi-Max, Shield 
Shellfish, and Munitions Ifrit responded to this event. While our news crews 
could not get too close due to Maveric Hunter barricades, they did catch sight 
of Gravity Man and Gyro Man retreating from the scene into what we assume is 
their transport shuttle which was still inside the warehouse. The Giant Met 
was defeated by Hi-Max, and our news crew has reported seeing Shield Shellfish 
defeating Enker. ... A spokesman for Repliforce was unavailable at the time, 
although it is only assumed that the Robot Masters may have had an ulterior 
motive for their attack."

More paper shuffling, and the reporter mumbles something about the Robot 
Masters being old hat. "Lets move on to sports with Athletics Tiger.."
