Popular Independent Franchise Sells Rights to the Metricious
As delicious as Margret’s sandwiches are; the future for her shops has been in question since the rumoured move for the Mallor family into the food and beverage markets. For those unfamiliar with recent events, the Mallor family had taken no interest in investments other than luxury goods in the Upper and Middle markets. The move would see a sizeable change in the direction of the family’s investments and their reach of influence.
It is believed that Marget’s, now with other thirty-two shops all over the city and the backing of the Metricious, will have an additional three placed in the outer tiers of the lower district as part of an effort to help the Lower classes. With this purchase, could this be seen as the preemptive first warning shots fired by the Guild against the family’s intentions? Time and money will eventually tell us all.
New Laboratory Set to Tackle ‘Dermis’ Epidemic
If you have kept your finger on the pulse of the latest in fashion, augmentations have been part of the industry standard for years. A controversial subject, the fact that Non-Aug models and augmented models compete for the same jobs has seen a backlash from lobbyists supporting purity of body. Recently there has been disturbing reports that a new fashion trend is seeking to blend the two together.
‘Splicing’ otherwise known as B-Aug or Bioorganic Augments is the result of the discovery of flesh-like materials that could be used to disguise augments. This new technology has not only been banned from Gladiatorial combat due to disguised advantages but is also being considered a banned substance by the Royal family as it could be used to conceal weapons, explosives or other devices that could put the safety of citizens at risk if undetected
The Aegeris Family Introduces a Loyalty Scheme
Many of us from time to time have required the services of the Aegeris family. Their friendly demeanour and depthless knowledge have made them a household name throughout the rings. If you’ve had a problem that no other could solve they could and would fix it for you. The family has now introduced a new business card which you can reap the benefits of.
If you find yourself in needing the Family’s services then all you have to do is press on the card in the designated free slot and an auto-message will be sent via an express tube to the connection database where you will be immediately assigned a member of the family. Every fifth call will qualify you into entering a competition for a lifetime supply of help and the possibility of having Lord Edmund fix your problem himself. Not only that but the card also entitles you to a discount on any further requests related to the first. If you wish to purchase one of these cards, send a credit transfer along with the form attached to this newspaper to district A7. If you do not have clearance to access the postal network in Upper districts please see your nearest Royal Guard for a request form.
Investment in New Refinery Transmutes to Ash for the Rhaxon Family.
The Rhaxon family has suffered another setback to their plans as their new refinery destroyed a large amount of valuable ore rather than processing it at twice the speed with increased efficiency in production as it was previously advertised. This was believed to be one of the saving graces of the Rhaxon’s as their recent financial trouble and losses has put the family’s investments into question.
Well known for their ability to change one substance into another it is quite a surprise that the family could not simply transmute more ore. We cannot find any sources to indicate one way or another but this might explain the heavy investments that the family has put in place since they rose to notoriety. If you have been affected by this recent event and are now unemployed, please fill out a Job Seeker’s form from your nearest Royal guard.
Oraea lobbyists call for the release of a Potential Vessel
Two days ago we reported that a Ms Sharlon Kennoch claimed to be a Vessel of Magai after an accident that left her wheelchair bound. She has since been locked up in her room by =hospital officials under the direct orders of the Royal Guard and the Church. It is believed she has not been allowed to see visitors and that Oraea members are being forcibly removed from anywhere in G6, regardless of their intent.
This has sparked outrage from the Oraea officials and has responded with protests and marches. The Grand Orator spoke to the crowds today from outside the Arena in G5. “We cannot allow the Church to dictate our faith. Although we are individuals, we all come together under the common belief that she will return. It is our fundamental religious right to examine her claim and to not be subjected to prejudice and brute force regardless of Royal sanction.”
