Laren Environmental Conference
The Isle of Laren may have seemed an odd choice for a series of talks on the environment but in Queen Julia's mind it made sense. The purpose of the conference was to discuss and set some targets about how to ensure that the world was protected for generations to come and the fact that at least to her faith it was here on this Isle that all creation began. The isle was off the southern tip of Morheim and despite its rather large size it was home to just 1000 people. The island already had strict controls over what could be done there and the people who had elected to make the island their home, people often referred to be Morheimians as The Caretakers because of the way they tried to live in harmony with the nature present on the island.

Matteo Arlotta and The Aresi Stone
In the eastern lands of Alenveil, located in a small town of Aresi, the company "Arlotta Archaeology" has set up camp outside of the village. Clinking away at pieces of stone, trying to find anything significant to the land's shrouded past, and brought up absolutely nothing. Mining with spades, pickaxes, trying to find any signs of civilization that could link to the shrouded past of Alenveil.

The Fight for the White Smoke
Joseph stepped out of his imported modern sedan and closed the door as he stepped onto the church parking lot. The church was located on top of a large hill overlooking St. Paul's, its suburbs and villas sprawling out away from the sea. Palm trees lined the crest of the hill that the parking lot was situated on, with the church a hundred or so feet away. It had rained recently, and the humid air combined with the already warm temperatures of the afternoon made it heated and sweaty, although the partly cloudy skied shielded the asphalt from the direct rays of the sun.

Flight 371
For the fifth time, young Jans took a glance at the clock. It was eight minutes past one, the morning of November 30th. He turned around and looked out the window to check if the car was still there. The Esé patiently waited; its headlights illuminating the cold, lonely midnight street. Even from inside the house, he could hear the low hum of the Gordo's engine. Nothing made a sound in this corner of Arkhavn; Sønderlev was a peaceful neighborhood. Located only two blocks away from the country's financial center, Sønderlev was a "village for the privileged" as they would say.

Morheim Trade & Industry Zone
The Morheim Trade and Industry Zone is due to open in early 2019 and will be a new chapter in the trading relations of the nation of Morheim.

The Zone is located in the town of Aisfeld which is a former Whaling Port which is currently capable of offloading container ships but will be expanded over the coming year to make it even more efficient and able to rival the port of Thale. Additionally, there are many different units that used to support the whaling industry that could easily be converted to manufacturing use. There will be benefits given to companies who wish to invest.

The Eagle and the Leopard
Two men were in the control tower of a Ralaarihsein base, one standing with binoculars, the other seated in front of a radar screen. Both had earpieces. The weather outside was warm and wet. Most of the traffic that was picked up by the pair were commercial aircraft flying south from Alharu to Dartha's main international airport which would use it as a refueling point before continuing their flights into the vastness of Thalassa. However, something else came up.

Mystery In the Dolch See (Europa Halloween Special)
Captain Clive Martin wrenched open the door the bridge, fighting against the wind from outside. He closed the door behind him with another spray or water hitting him in the face just as it closed. He turned around with a sour look on his face and stumbled a little bit against the rocking ship towards his navigator. "Give me an update on the storm."

A Change in the Wind
Aluxia: one of Eurth’s last remaining autocracies. It had survived for hundreds of years, largely ignored due to its backwards mentality and its lackluster economic prospects. The current Emperor, Davros XXII, was with the assassination of his father, Ravon XI. The ruler himself was rather handsome but his attitude and his warped perspectives could not be hidden behind his well-trimmed beard. He was married to Renna. Although the official record would say that their marriage was one of love and passion. For it was neither, it was one of traditional obligation. Neither liked the other but tradition dictated such arrangement, and that of bringing a plausible heir to life. A son would be born: Kravos.

Coronation Celebration
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the Kingdom of Seylos would hereby like to extend an invitation to all nations that are in diplomatic contact. Soon, the Crown Prince Aidan Redmond will be given the official crown as King of Seylos at his coronation. While the media and government refer to him as King, since he is the next in succession and the previous King has passed, traditionally the title does not officially pass until coronation though it is used beforehand if the coronation is guaranteed. It is here at this event all diplomatic staff, royalty, nobility, elected leaders, or other government officials are all invited to attend the proceedings beginning in the morning and lasting throughout the day.

From Skies to Safety
The calendar read 5 July 1948, Monday. It had been a year since the Thalassan War had ended, when the Gioktons had surrendered and the Sunset Sea Islands liberated from its oppressive leadership. It was a bloody war that saw the deaths of millions — military and civilian alike. It was not unusual that the Commonwealth had not yet recovered; yet despite this, the economy was, as a matter of fact, growing.

Trilateral trade proposal
The governments of Cristina, Magnaeus and Fleur de Lys are meeting to negotiate a trade agreement between their nations. The Free City of Cristina is renowned for being a major international transport hub in Europa, serving some of the busiest sea and air trade routes. The Ports of Aline and St. Izabella are some of the busiest in Europa in terms of cargo tonnage. The Magnean Confederation, on the other hand, is landlocked, with limited access to regional and global trade.

All The Sultan's Men
The date was July 24th, 1923. Fulgiyan, Land of the Red Banner, toiled under many yokes. That of the spice importers of Derthalen, of the Ostport prospectors of Prymont, and of the Sultan Selim III, by whose ordinance these foreigners were allowed within, to pillage, exploit, enslave, and to build something from the nothing of the savanna. In the summer heat, those natives unfortunate enough to be employed by the colonizers worked ceaselessly in iron mines, rail yards, banana and sugar plantations, and in the fields herding cattle. The twin tools that did the wicked work of the industrialist foreigners rang out in unison, day and night; the hammer and the sickle.

Mundus Liber Freedom Index
The Mundus Liber Freedom Index, compiled and maintained by the government-backed Mauridivian think tank Mundus Liber Institute, seeks to rank all nations on Eurth on how free they are overall by giving them a number from 100 to 0, with 100 being the most free and 0 being the most oppressive. The number is based on the average rating given to a country on four categories, which are: political freedom, personal/social freedom, economic freedom, and press freedom. This index will be updated periodically to reflect changes in world freedom through time.

The Verde Blockade
To whom it may concern. As you may be aware, the Socialist Federation of Ahrana have recently launched a sizeable convoy of militarised ships along a route that will take them to Xara, a nation in the Mediargic Sea that Ahrana claims to control. As of late, growing tensions within the Canamo region have led the United States to become increasingly wary of the actions of the Socialist Federation, such as the formation of the Confederation of Independent Socialists, allowing an autonomous region controlled by Derthalen, and of course, succumbing to a questionable communist regime. With your great nation being a close ally and firm friend of the United States, we humbly ask of you to support us in preventing Ahrana from having their sinister way. I ask of you to enact a naval blockade in the waters of the Verde Sea, therefore preventing Ahrana from progressing towards their destination.

A New Mother
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Reverend Mother Hannah McKey. The Reverend Mother is the head of the Bene Gesserit faith, the person responsible for guiding our Sisterhood, its followers and mankind towards the goal of preparing for the next great cataclysm to face humanity. Additionally, the Reverend Mother is the Head of State of the Theocracy of Kaitaine and thus holds responsibility for our nation's path in the world. Over the next four days, our membership will undertake ancient rituals to determine the new Reverend Mother who shall inherit the responsibility of continuing Reverend Mother McKey's good work.

The Thalassan War
The seas were calm on a November morning as the Giokton submarine I-23 cruised along the Tiauhai Sea. She was one of the several submarines dispatched under the top-secret Operation Barrage, launched after Giokton spies uncovered Andallan plans to further reinforce Liamchia, an Andallan territory on Giok Island. The day before, the SFS Teuvo Antonnen, a Kristian Steffenssen-class troop transport, departed Andalla for Liamtsia with 2,553 soldiers and crew on board...

Crisis in the Assemblée Nationale
A little resume for those too lazy to read everything. A Société Ouverte (Mécra’s Party holding the absolute majority in the National Assembly) Deputé Saint-Étienne insulted his ex-political opponent from the 2015 elections for the Député seat during an interview with a journalist. Following this, the ex-opponent Monsieur Dumont asked for a duel, which took place in a forest with 5 witnesses and an arbiter. But on the 3rd round, Monsieur Saint-Étienne disrespected the rules of engagement, ending in an incident and his death. This launched an argument about the Société Ouverte Party’s honour. This made their adversaries and opponents enjoy the situation, to attack the Party along the Président du Conseil Mécra.

The hand that stabs you can also feed you
Bureau 33, one of the scariest within Het Apparath. The Identity Replacement Department did exactly that, they replaced your identity if you didn't play along, if you were deemed a risk. Over the years, they had perfected the art. You didn't agree to their plans, to their advice, to their aid? No worries, enjoy the rest of your life. Until, you know, something gruesome happened like your caravan exploding with you in it, your motorcycle's front wheel suddenly getting a mind of its own while you're doing one-hundred-and-fifty kilometers on a strangely empty piece of highway or that stripper you hired for a private dance suddenly starts choking you with her amazingly muscular legs.

Antargic Adventures at Simon Station
Summer has started in Antargis. The land of the eternal ice is being flooded with diffuse light, the ice slowly retreats, penguin chicks hatch and cute little seal pups open their round eyes for the first time. Whales graze on the abundant masses of plankton and krill cumulating in the frigid waters. But this year, something is different about the southernmost continent. There is a building standing between dunes of snow amidst the freezing haze. It is the Simon Station, the ISTC's foothold on the frozen continent.

Protecting the Past, Securing the Future
Morheim creates the Treaty for Cultural and Historical Exchange (TCHE), a multi-national organisation designed to promote co-operation in several academic fields as well as opening its citizen's eyes to the cultures of neighbours and potential friends. It is their hope that you will accept my invitation to meet with Queen Julia III and her team at Thale Royal Palace to discuss this concept and reach a mutually acceptable treaty which will kick-start this ambition of a young Archaeology student.
