Aluxia Qualifies for ANAFA League Cup       

The Red Eagles will dive straight into the Argic and Northern Aharu Football Association's League Cup following a last-minute qualification after the ANAFA Authorities reviewed a controversial goal by the team's final competitor that had initially disqualified them. In response, that team had been removed and the Aluxians will be making their first debut at the Cup. Crown Prince Kravos has been a staunch supporter of the team, providing whatever resources they needed to ensure the team has success on the pitch. Team coach Pytor Olkav, who only retired from the Imperial military three years ago, has given his full attention and energy into completely rebuilding the squad. Olkav said this year's team is by far the best he or any Aluxian has seen in a generation. They will be led by star forward, #10, Mitar Valesovic. The Red Eagles will be playing Fulgistan in the first set of matches.

Free Aluxian Army Claims Responsibility for Narlis Attack

An anti-Imperial organization that calls itself the Free Aluxian Army, has emerged from hiding to announce to the world that they were the ones responsible for the bombing of Narlis City Hall back in Early September. In a brief video sent to to our office, their leader, known only as a Mister X, stated that the reign of Emperor Davros and the autocratic rule of the last thousand years must end. He claims that the FAA has over 5,000 members from across the Empire including several detachments of the Imperial Army who have broken ranks to join their cause. Mister X demanded the Emperor abdicate immediately or the full fury of the movement would be mobilized, a number of individuals he stated could be even higher than 25,000 people. Valron, the Emperor's advisor and spokesman, rebuffed their threats by stating Emperor Davros is the legitimate monarch of the Aluxian Empire and no one would force him to leave the throne. He read a one-sentence remark by the Emperor saying that these 'cowards and traitors will be found and executed without delay.' Imperial forces throughout the Empire have been put on alert for potential hostility from this unknown entity in the coming days. Vorzyd caught Crown Prince Kravos as he was leaving the Ahrana-Aluxian football match abroad and he said he was not aware of what was going on but he would be brought up to speed upon his return home. This paper urges all loyal Imperial citizens to be fully aware of their surroundings and if they see something, to notify the proper authorities as soon as possible.

Civil War Breaks Out Between Imperial and Free Aluxian Forces

The Aluxian Empire is in a state of civil war as the long-mysterious 'Mister X' finally showed his face - Dmitri Solov made a speech over the radio waves announcing that his "Free Aluxian Army" was formally declaring war upon the Imperial throne, proclaiming that the reign of the absolute monarchs must cease and democracy must be brought to this corner of Argis. Solov stated that loyal Aluxians in the tens of thousands have joined under their banner, as have the authorities of Zygaria. Rebel forces have already acted on their declarations and there have been reports of several attacks throughout the Highlands and the lower Drenz River Valley. Emperor Davros has responded to their open statement by ordering all rebels to be killed on sight - stating he was the rightful ruler of Aluxia and their resistance would be eliminated at whatever the cost.

Though the confrontation between the now-rebel forces and the Imperial authorities have been boiling for some time, it is the total disappearance of Crown Prince Kravos. He was last seen attending the Aluxia-Prymont ANAFA match in Vardin. As there is a possibility of the Aluxian national team will be competing at home in the ANAFA quarterfinals, the proposed security at the Stadium has been doubled and all ticket holders must have valid identification on file with the Aluxian police to be admitted. Additional security measures are being implemented by the security forces and information is being distributed to all citizens.

Imperial Diplomat Defects to Free Aluxian Army

Yogar Pofko, a high-ranking officer in the Imperial Diplomatic Corps today tendered his resignation and switched his allegiance to the Free Aluxian Army. In his letter, he said that the Imperial throne and the actions of both its current and previous occupants (Davros and Ravon respectively) have completely destroyed Aluxia's reputation in the global community and has failed to engage with even its closest nations. Pofko said that a Democratically-led Aluxia would be absolutely essential in order for any future for the Aluxian people. The Free Aluxian Army's leader, Dmitri Solov, greeted the news of Pofko's new allegiance as yet another sign that autocratic rule must end and praised Pofko's long civil service career, believing that with him on their side, the Free Army will be in a much stronger position to gather additional support from abroad. The Imperial Security Services has put out a bounty on Yogar to the amount of 50,000 Zemids.

Vorzyd has also been informed that Emperor Davros has been engaged in diplomatic correspondence with the Tagmatine Empire on matters of potential intervention in support of the rightful Government. A spokesman would not confirm what level of assistance has been either approved or discussed at length. The International Red Cross of Eurth has reiterated its state of neutrality and intends on using its organizational status in ensuring both sides adhere to established international protocols of treatment of war participants and collating and distributing relief aid to the affected civilian population. Though the conflict is only in its earliest days, there have been reports of thousands of Aluxians registering for visas to a number including Morheim and Oyus (which recently permitted their Foreign Ministry the ability to review and approve asylum requests). A group of Juddish Kuzha (rabbis) told Vorzyd that they fear that the Civil War may provoke yet another wave of anti-Juddish sentiment throughout the country - as Aluxia has had a dark history between its Christian majority and its Juddish minority. The Kuzha said that they have a composed a formal request for assistance to Prime Minister Lasker by way of the Tikva Mission in Vardin. It was once a full-on embassy but was reduced to a minor operation during the reign of Emperor Ravon.

Aluxian Red Eagles Eliminated from ANAFA Cup

They entered as quickly as they left. The Aluxians led by their fearless captain, Mitar Valesovic, after a painful penalty shootout in which their competitor, Iverica beat them by 2. Our national team was able to keep the score even through the end of regulation, only to not to break the deadlock during the extra time. The loss is devastating as many thought, though not being considered the strongest the competition, they were regarded as the most well-rounded with a decent record and place in the standings. "It all came down to who we would be competing against the quarterfinals, we always knew it would have been a challenge no matter who it was. Even if we did play the Prymontians again, I doubt we would have beaten them a second-go-round" said Olkav, their coach. He further elaborated that Lionel Messey was just on his game and had deprived the Aluxians their opportunity to execute more than one set-piece that would have involved Mettic (#14) who had been playing outstandingly since he was brought up to the front eleven squad. The Aluxia-Iverica match was played at Lusankya Stadium, in Vardin.

As Vorzyd has been alerting our international readership, Aluxia is currently engulfed in a civil war. The national team's loss has only made the situation in the capital worse, many hoped that a win might have slowed down the ongoing conflict but it has only given people another outlet to vent their frustrations. Dmitri Solov, the declared leader of the Free Aluxian Army, released a brief statement following the team's loss that he was sorry to hear they wouldn't be moving on and hoped that they would all be ready to come home and help prepare the next generation of players under a free, democratic system. He pledged that if the Democratic forces won, he and his eventual government would substantially invest in the educational system including a slew of gymnasiums and football pitches for communal use. A spokesman for the Aluxian Football Organization (FAO) said that due to the ongoing civil war, there is no guarantee the Aluxian team may be able to compete in the rapidly approaching Argic Cup. The FAO will make a decision depending on the prevailing political situation at home [which will largely be determined as to who may possess the capital at that time].

Curfew Instituted in Chukba

Imperial authorities in the Juddish-majority city of Chukba in Northern Aluxia today announced a mandatory curfew between the hours of 20:00 and 06:00 Hours. Its implementation is due to an impending offensive by the Free Aluxian Army per a spokesman from the Imperial Army. Three brigades of soldiers supported by detachments from the artillery and armored corps have been deployed to the immediate region to enforce both the curfew and ensure the protection of the city. The Mayor of Chukba was not informed of the decision until after it was conveyed to military personnel. Chukba-native Kuzhe Mikel Levitin was critical of the order saying that such an order would impact the ability of Juddish individuals who insisted to make the trip to Vardin to take up the Lasker Government's offer of providing asylum to any Juddish person who wished to leave Aluxia for the duration of the conflict. The same spokesman for the Imperial Army's Regional Command said that the curfew would not impact individuals as long as they left before its commencement each night. When asked when it would be lifted, the individual said that it would remain as long as required and could increase in the determined time period as needed.

    • Inspecting the Troops: Part 1 Garenah: a vibrant farming community amongst dozens that dotted the Aihai, fertile plains of waving grain and abundant fruit and citrus trees. Though most people here were farmers, it was the headquarters the 10th Legion. At the gates of the vast military base swayed the eagle banners. The sun was shining and a car approached - Morror Kassus decided to inspect the troops. "General Approaching! (Daeus mreiyar!)" echoed throughout the camp. The guards at the gates stood at attention and saluted to their hero as he drove by. Soldiers lined the road that ran the length of the complex. It was double-walled and at the center: Kassus's headquarters, the legion's treasury, and armory. With Morror was Kalenna, the most senior colonel, and the commanding officer of the veteran 1st Regiment. Alongside them was Antor Relek, the senior centurion. Morror commented, "the soldiers seem restless," speaking to the two. "They want to get into the fight," Relek responded. Soldiers both new and old cheered as they passed. "They'll all have their chance, soon enough," Kassus said in kind, Kalenna interjected, "the Praetor is being foolish for not using us in the Enolian campaign, we're the most experienced legion in the entire Army and what are they doing? Sitting around, doing nothing." Morror stopped her. "The 10th will play a part. Do not despair. We'll have an opportunity to remind the People of our valor." He glanced out the car and saw one formation. "Driver, pull over." The car came to a halt and the three got out. In front of them was a ter'val, led by a recently promoted centurion. "What is your name sergeant?" "Omal Takvi sir," he responded. "Centurion Relek spoke highly of you," commented Kassus. "Are you and your men when the call to serve is made?" "Yes sir! Just say the word and my men and those of our company will march to glory." "Good man," Morror said, "Relek, give these men an extra ration tonight," he instructed. Antor nodded and took note to talk with the kitchens. The three get back in the car and continued inwards. After passing several more barracks, they reached the gates of the inner compound, guarded by the 'Guards of the Fort' (Moriari ih'Sæmna), his personal bodyguard, made up of only the most veteran men in the entire army unit. Awaiting them in front of his headquarters was the Weaponsmaster (Rianov) and the other regimental colonels. "How was your drive the capital," asked one of the gathered. "Rather quiet," he responded, "helped me to just enjoy the scenery," getting out of the car, "but enough idle chatter, everyone, please come in," he ordered. Inside the two-story building, of stucco and tiled roof, was Kassus's more spartan home away from his home in Rateg. His quarters were above while the main conference room, communications office, and other offices were on the ground floor. The conference table had been prepared: papers bound, tablets linked. Two pots of Maurdivian coffee were primed. They had been called to discuss internal troop readiness and information obtained by Kassus from General Rendak concerning the Enolian conflict. "We have a great deal to talk about, take your seats..." The meeting would last three hours. "...while we are not 'actively' deployed, I want all units to be at the ready until further notice," instructed Kassus. "All units will maintain a twice-daily training program, and all units will participate in a shooting range exercise every week." The Weaponsmaster began drawing up a schedule. "I want all regiments to have readiness reports daily, any questions?" Colonel Joras Morek of the 4th Regiment spoke up, "the Praetor needs to deploy us now. The 8th Legion is in no position to take Duronom. It's like you said, the conflict will drag on if we cannot take out their supply chain, being fed by dubious Asgeirrians." "The Phi'Tlaru are currently tracking down those individuals and negate that situation. I told Colonel Varak this in the car ride out here, the Legion will have its opportunity. Soon enough." Seeing no further questions, he dismissed the group. He watched each of them leave, stopping Colonel Imos Durak of the 7th Regiment. "Congratulations on your engagement to Dara." Imos thanked him, "most appreciated," he responded. "Getting married next year in sight of Karethvek." Morror cared about his men from the senior staff to the lowest soldier. He knew the power of loyalty and it was that bond that made his legion the best in the entire army. After the other colonels had left, all who remained were in the Weaponsmaster and Colonel Varak. "There are two further pieces of business to discuss, the first involves you Avor," looking at the camp's foremost logistician. "I have forwarded funds to Sukkar Marrus, the CEO of Aishkurænd Rheilhhu Rihana, to procure production rights to a range of weaponry from Adaptus which will give us an edge over our enemies, can you please follow up with Sukkar and get that effort moving as quickly as possible?" Weaponsmaster Nerik nodded in acknowledgment. "I looked at the specs you had gotten from Minister Valdran last time and they are quite nice. It will give us a tremendous advantage over the Enolian Guard. If we can't get the rights, I'll see what we can do about outfitting as many of the men as possible with them." Morror was content and excused him. And then there was Varak, "for the last piece of business, it's not martial - it's political," he said. She nodded. "I have Kaya looking into Senator Charvanek's activities," Kalenna reported. "It is always good to have some friends in the Phi'Tlaru," commented Morror, "Livana will need to be dealt with, eventually." Varak put Morror at ease. "Don't worry. Kaya has never failed you." Kassus smiled. He liked hearing that. "Then I'll leave it to you to get to bottom of, we'll talk more on it when she has some dirt," he remarked. Kalenna proceeded to get up and was almost out of the conference room when she stopped and turned back her superior, who was now getting surrounded by officers feeding him intelligence packets and memos from Central Command. She stared at him, imposed against the massive map in the background. She said to herself, "a true leader."
    • Capital City Officially Renamed The Mayor of Cinigrad Avery Ray and Vice-President Turner in an combined federal and local broadcast announced that the Federal District of of Cinigrad would unified with the bordering city of Farbanti, a part of the State of November Island, combining into the Federal District of Cinigrad-Farbanti. Effective Immediately, the area of and around Farbanti has been ceded to the Capital District. Farbanti, once one of the most powerful of the Youtabonian city-states, has now been bordered by Cinigrad with little to no dividing lines between them. Talks of annexation began as early the 1980's but had been stalled due to "cultural history" but talks progressed in late 2018 when Cinigradi officials offered to rename the city and district to include both names, and the funding for a Farbanti historical and cultural museum.
    • "...this is Borak with today's headline news. The Health Ministry (Hifvarhdæsn), led by Doctor Lora Jildon, will begin investing 6.5 billion Chaks over 5 years in major hospitals, local clinics, optimized patient flows, new medical technology, and essential research into advanced treatments and medicines. Jildon stated that her Ministry was still developing a more comprehensive budget for the Republic's healthcare service, the Dræd'et, and will present her recommendation to the relevant Senate committee next month..." "...Kovex Heavy Industries (Diadænzohem u'Kovex) has been selected by the Rateg City Council (Ekhiel ih'Sivas Rateg) to construct 100,000 units of proper housing. The area that will be developed has long been considered a slum by the local authorities. Rateg's population is expected to grow over the next decade, like many of the major urban centers of Rihan, and the Council insisted that it needed to get ahead of the curve. This also coincides with the anticipation of the construction of over two dozen factories hiring nearly 75,000 employees over the same time period. Residents have been assured by the authorities that they will be consulted on the project over its lifespan. Local police units were called in to maintain order in the city center..." "...our brave men and woman continue their advance into Enolia, having achieved victory after victory against the cowardly and uncivilized Enolians. Soldiers of the 8th Legion have made good progress along the coast while their colleagues in the 3rd Legion are moving east in the Thalak Hills. Each legion's key objectives have been made confidential at this time but elements of the Navy's expeditionary fleet was seen leaving port early this morning, indicating they will be playing a role in the ongoing conflict. The Defense Ministry has asked all loyal citizens to keep our soldiers in their thoughts and to make donations towards supporting our forces in the field..."

    • Mathon paid attention to every single word Eugenios had said. "A mission sounds modest but there is nothing saying it couldn't elevate to a proper embassy in due time. I merely propose such a minor step in the name of protecting both my own actions here in Rihan and for the Emperor who I am sure will have to deal with some level of criticism from the Church that doesn't exactly...approve of us. I think the cultural exchange is a good mechanism to test the waters under the auspices of a proper arrangement and if successful, it would warrant much more 'coordinated' deliberations." "I may need the militant Jaridan and the deviously wealthy Nej'ahar to get many of my proposals through but when they consist of men and woman who would rather take a blunt approach to solve a problem - either through the barrel of a rifle or through the sacks of money - it isn't always the right method. Now, as you are aware, I am a military man myself, a long career in the Navy before being appointed the Praetorship, this sounds counter. I may be a political man now, and surely you may not believe what I am about to say but I never 'clawed' for the position. I accepted it because it was my duty to serve. I do not formally pronounce my political alignments in the Senate in the name of safeguarding the Republic - above all. The Suketh may be a small contingent of the Senate membership, they are right. I privately consulted many of them in the early days of my tenure - and this meeting is the product of such discussion and debate." "Rihan may be as far away as the rest of Eurth and it some ways, that is a good thing in the name of maintaining the stability of the Republic, but as you said, no one nation survives on its own. Since my ascention to the position, I've taken far greater steps at continental affairs than many Praetors before me, only concerning themselves with Aurelia overall when there was a situation that was too...complex for our own address. Today, the Rihannsu and Kirvinska are as close as we've ever been. The Phi'Tlaru has been quite useful in probing the wider globe in keeping us abreast of developments abroad. I do respect Arhomaneia cause of keeping Europa at least at some level of stability," another boost few other Praetors would say unless it was meant to get something, "and I am aware of a great many things many governments would not like us to know," he gave a slight chuckle. "In regards to the cultural exchange," he moved towards the first trigger that would reconnect former complements, "the definitive program would probably center around nationally-sponsored trips. I'd like to say we could do an exposition but I have the sense that many in the Church who may want to suppress some of our 'creativity' but I think you can work out the final format with Senator Pranana and the Civilization Minister. Obviously embarking on this type of arrangement would involve some revisions in visa policy between us and the establishment of protocols that our two nations would uphold in the spirit of making this a success." He knew Eugenios would bring up the one difficulty in pulling such an exchange up. "You do not need to apologize for being flippant," he began, "I don't think these exchanges would be quite so 'popular' but perhaps targeting them to particularly 'enlightened' individuals - academics, of culture. Yes, there will be detractors, as will be the case here, but nothing should stop us from making a complete attempt. And I am prepared to spend political capital to make it happen. I am by far a more liberal politician than you may find in the Senate. Yes, the three-hundred men and woman of the chamber will be a challenge. But I've succeeded in getting numerous reforms through in some rather unconventional ways." Terix had noticed at this point that the coffee pot was empty following Eugenios' pouring a final cup. Mathon quickly moved it out of the way to a side table. "It will be hard. But," he paused, leaning back in his chair, templing his hands, making his guest curious about the hand gesture. "Recognition must happen. And it will happen." The clock, placed on the opposite of the room, struck ten. The moon shined brightly in the sky, the crescent fully visible in the cloudless night.
