The Rockridge Herald
Aftershocks Hamper Relief Efforts.
Authorities urge citizens to remain calm and not impede local Enforcers as they redeploy to meet the needs of Rockridge's citizens.
Rockridge Power Supply Restored
After several cycles without power, the lights are back on thanks to the Marionettes. The gang found the Krakatoa Heat Sink abandoned and with typical Mechanicum efficiency they quickly restored power to the districts of Rockridge after securing the area.
The Herald has since discovered that the Promethium Guild have left Rockridge with no clue as to when or even if they will return.
New Dome Discovered.
Rockridge's dedicated team of Explorators have discovered a new Dome while seeking refuge from another tremor. Authorities are reluctant to release details of the find until the Explorators have finished their final assessment but are hopeful that this new Dome will be a viable concern. The Herald is unsure when such details will be made available however, as the Explorator team hasn't been seen since entering what the locals are affectionally calling Darkmaw.
Local Enforcers S.E.P.T.IC. have been dispatched to investigate the incident and authorities are confident that the Explorator's tardy report will be published shortly.
Faith Rises As Crisis Deepens
The Brotherhood of the Cleansing Flame have seen their ranks swell with new members recently as locals seek solace in the word of the Emperor.
It's not just their flock that has grown, the Brotherhood have expanded their territory ousting the Marionettes from the district known as the Hollows.
Abel Cankerson, leader of the Cleansing Flame, who is hailed as the bringer of light added that "There is no solace to be found in the cold depths of the machine. Only the warmth of the human soul can bring light...and that warmth shall be as a raging inferno for the inhabitants of the Hollows!"
The Cawdor gang continued their expansion with a decisive strike against the Voodoo Dolls at Asher's Pass. Taking advantage of the Escher gang's unusual low numbers the Brotherhood hit hard and fast, driving out the Dolls to spread their word...
...but not before Maman Brigitte seriously injured Abel Cankerson!
The Cleansing Flame hailed it as a great victory against the heathen harpies but a spokeswoman for the Escher gang claimed they were "In the middle of evacuating the district anyway." Adding that "The Pass is blocked by rubble and any attempt to clear the debris will probably bring the whole place crashing down."
Local Enforcers Missing
Authorities are eager to locate Enforcer Group S.E.P.T.IC. Last seen around the area of "Darkmaw". A reward for any information on their whereabouts can be claimed at Precinct 13.
Iron Hounds Secure Shell Perimeter
The Iron Hounds of House Orlock have been contracted by Authorities to secure the outer shell of the Hive while Structural Enginseers continue their work. Not content with guarding the outer shell the Iron Hounds are helping to clear Asher's Pass with their demolition expert 'Jimmy two fingers'.
Breaking News!!! Rockridge Falls Silent!
Despite the furious activity in the Settlements of Pumphouse, Grubber's Heights, Cruel Water, Stranglevine Creek and Payne's Labyrinth the rest of Rockridge has fallen silent. Dome runners have been dispatched to the out-lying districts but none have returned. With Enforcer Group S.E.P.T.IC also missing it is left to the local gangs to discover what has happened.
The Kindred of the Dawn Shadow have closed their borders. It is suspected that the Hive Quake has hit the miners hard and they are looking after their own.
The Voodoo Dolls, Clean-Up Crew, Marionettes and Brotherhood of the Cleansing Flame are preparing to venture out in an attempt to discover the out-lying districts' fate.
Our intrepid reporter Karina Page has joined them as they search for clues.
More news to follow when we receive it!

They're all built and ready for painting....alas it'll be March before there's enough daylight before that happens. In the meantime I'll be painting terrain and gaming with you :DDelete
Love it love it love it! Lots to look forward to on the battle report and news fronts.ReplyDelete
Glad to see you're enjoying it pagumb. I'm about 5 months behind with the news (last year's deleted post that came out of nowhere kind of put me off posting for a while but it seems that it was nothing but a glitch from google), so I'm hoping to bring everybody up to speed in the next month or so.Delete
Is it wrong that I feel hungry after reading this post?ReplyDelete
