State of the Verse

State of the ‘Verse

The following is for the interest of players and the aid of narrators. It should not all be considered IC knowledge.

1st QUARTER 2519

Canton, Higgin’s Moon
Since the return of the folk hero Jayne Cobb to the mudders’ town of Canton just over a year ago, things have been slowly starting to change. The son of the town magistrate has begun quietly challenging his father’s power. Fess Higgins’ first big move has been to grant the freedom of a group of indentured servants and to allow them to leave the planet with their debt considered settled. The consequences of this move are yet to be seen, as the ship Avalon has just arrived in Canton to transport the pilgrims.

Pelorum
The bank robbery on Pelorum carried out by the crew of Ronin certainly had its fifteen minutes of fame until all of a sudden, about two weeks later, all mention of it strangely stopped. What was never made common knowledge was that the bank was operated by Nikola Kang, the formidable criminal leader and mysterious sister of the famous hotelier. Also, Ronin was operating, and for now still is operating, with the permission of the Alliance Government, under the directive to bring down Nikola’s organisation.

Lassek, Moon of Verbena
The mining town of Gutter’s End on Lassek has been suffering a severe drought. Over the course of the last five years, the local water supply has dropped by more than 40%. Aside from the obvious health danger this poses to the people of Gutter’s End it also threatens Hashenvale Industries, the main employer in the area. Without a plentiful water supply, mining activities will inevitably come to an end. The crew of The Signal are investigating the situation and will release a full news report soon.

Kang Hotel Empire
The controversy surrounding Athena Kang was finally brought to a close. Her brother Shannon came out the hero of this story, having rescued her from known terrorist and criminal Jack Grey, who had kidnapped her several weeks ago. At least, that’s how the story was spun in the news. The truth was that she had been seduced by Grey and had eloped with him of her own free will. Shannon hired the crew of Nomad to get her back by force. In the action, Jack Grey was killed and Nomad established themselves as allies of the Kangs.

Deja Thoris City, Greenleaf
An important local election is coming up and the two candidates are Maximilian Wood and the current councilman Owen Matheson. Wood, who owns the local Jade Temple Casino, seems a fair and upstanding man. He’s even known to donate portions of the casino profits to charity now and then, when the press is around to see it. Matheson, who some folk nickname ‘Oily’, is a crony capitalist and acceptor of bribes. In secret, Matheson has hired the crew of Nomad to assassinate his competitor Wood. The plot is being financially backed by Nikola Kang’s nephew Shannon Kang, who intends to take over the Jade Temple Casino once Wood is out of the way.

Finance
Current exchange rates have a single credit being worth one hundred platinum or one thousand silver.

Core Celebrities
Jenn Matheson (NPC, portrayed by Ke$ha) has been topping the Core pop charts for the past year. Stangely, following the release of her current single two weeks ago, the usually high profile songstress has been missing from the spotlight. She has been noticeably absent from the top clubs and showbiz parties at which she used to make quite an impact. Has Jenn gone into rehab? Has she finally had enough and gone into hiding? Is this just another publicity stunt?
