Chronicles of a New Wurld
By the grace of God, on Monday the 25th February of the year 1630. El Nuevo Mondo, a brand-new land, teeming with resources and tribes as wary as they are mysterious. Our journey, since the separation from Admiral Deiargon's fleet, Alponzo claims that there was some dispute between Montega and Deiargon that caused the fleet's separation, but I highly doubt it, was punctuated by obstacles that God, in His great kindness, allowed us to overcome. Here we are, reduced by half but safe and sound, emerging in a wurld that is then unfamiliar to us, far from the homeland that had cast us out.

Ocean Mix Up
"Climbing flight level two eight zero, Kolhar 132." Captain Kaidal Taliq answered ATC as they got clearance to go higher. So far the flight was uneventful. Their A330-300 was slowly climbing to their cruising altitude of 31,000 feet. If all went well Kolhar Airways flight 132 would be well on their way to Belleville, Florentia. The flight was unusually packed today, but that wasn't surprising to anyone who was in the know.

AN Task Force on Slavery
My fellow representatives. I address you today to bring to your attention an issue that tarnishes our wurld. Slavery. Slavery still exists in our wurld. Exists because the nations of the wurld allow it to. This is a travesty of justice and a failure of conscience. I am calling on this body, on the nations present that also recognize this evil, to take action.

FedCom in the Grand War
The C-Deck Ops Centre onboard the frigate was cold and dimly lit. It smelt strongly of caffeine and faintly of buttery churros. A long table dominated the centre of the space. Atop it, a mobile suitcase computer tower had been set up and clamped down. Bundles of cables, like a root system, spread from the tower and tangled around pens, folders, tablets, manille envelopes and ultra-thin displays.

Longest Rails: Intreimor to Labrador
As Aristutle once said: "It's not the length of your rail, but how you use it." Now, clearly, Aristutle didn't have a very long rail. How could he? He was Aroman. Aristutle was wrong and Freud was right, when he said: "If you salivate when you see trains, it was because your mother wasn't impressed by your smol rails. Well no more! Your mother would be impressed by your long rail. So precisely, it becomes our heaven-sent mission to build them! Build Argis, build the longest rails on Eurth and find for them the thickest, most bossom-gauged trains to ride them.

This land is my land
It’s late in the afternoon when Sergeant Alarick Schäfer tells his squad that they’ve reached their next waypoint along ASR Blue Lagoon. They’re located in a small patch of forest somewhere in rural Nordwalde Province; as far as most of this band of average 18 to 20 year-old Rhodellian conscripts is concerned, they’re somewhere south of Camp Bergenstein, north of the provincial capital of Schwarzwald, and west of MSR Spirytus - the main road connecting Bergenstein with the rest of Rhodellian civilisation.

Can a Leopard Change its Spots?
Like the tiger, a big cat native to more southerly Europan climes than our own Arhomaneia, the leopard sometimes takes to man-eating. In my experience, a man-eating leopard is to be dreaded even more than a tiger that has gained the same taste, as it possesses greater agility and stealthiness, as well as its silence.

Mesdames et Messieurs
The sun-filled evening sky over Briselle was an attraction in itself, the imperial Lysian architecture untouched for over a hundred years. Families have dinner in streets cafés and restaurants, with all of the taste and charm of the old wurld. The city was adamantly against changing the aesthetics of the town, as the nation itself was changing faster than before, they wanted to keep what little they had left.

Europan News Network
Europa has gone through a terrifying time after the collapse. Only nations like Tagmatium, Machina Haruspex, and Orioni have survived relatively unscathed due to exceptional foresight and incredible luck. But there's another sleeping power that has begun to wake up, and is more dangerous than any other nation on the planet. Great Anglia sits perched perfectly on the western edge of the Occident and it has decided to bring order to the chaos of Europa and even begin turning its eyes to the New Wurld.

The Dalstavian War
It is always thought that after a war peace should come, and with it also prosperity and knowledge ... but that was not the case. The long and heartbreaking civil war in Ruthenia brought Supreme Leader Kars Delai to power after 9 years of sacrifices, deaths and hunger. Although the conflict ended in 2009, the nation was unable to recover economically from the disastrous situation it was in, leaving the population at the mercy of the dictator and death. There were those who had enough of all this, that it was time to stop trusting the government and decided to break away and seek luck with other partners.
