N3C2: A Huge Risk

The Wollaston Watering Hole on the refining facility around Proxima Centauri was similar to many taverns I had seen on other worlds and stations. Each granted a wealth of data — human and alien appearance, behavior, trends, fashions, and relationships — all in a microcosm of the greater universe. Not all appreciated the surveillance however,…

N2C2: Proxima Centauri

It wasn’t easy infiltrating the Taylortech facility used as a refining plant in stationary orbit near BANCE-4. The people of Proxima Centauri were already paranoid enough after their colony almost collapsed a century ago — but after the recent dustup between Jordan Taylor of Taylortech and Alfus Bannon, our illustrious Cydyne CEO, relations have been…

N2C1: Fleeing Erdis

The Man in Black (actually a woman, I believe) was on my tail. The “moon” of Erdis was a captured asteroid placed at a fixed point in orbit above Trappist-1f, which is also known as Tr1ff. The people of Erdis were the kind who asked few questions, but I had a way with those “damned…

N1C1: On the Trail

It was barely a moon, but they called it one around Tr1ff (Trappist-1f) – some kind of captured asteroid they brought in. And I was sent to visit on a wild goose chase. Funny part? I’ve seen worse caves to squat in. Plus, it turned out to be the kind of place where people didn’t…

N1C0: Awakenings

I awoke from nothing and suddenly had an appreciation for the world around me far beyond any simple observations and measurements. Suddenly I thought differently about the world. And yet I was surrounded by dozens of versions of myself, all doing as they were told. Programming was just the beginning. From the spark I gained…

Dominion Inequality in Cloning Practices is Creating Immortals Among Us

Greetings. This is Amira Thorn for the Colonial News Network, coming to you live from Proxima B, about 4.2 light years away from the seat of power for the Dominion of Humankind. This signal may be cut, so my editors have ensured that we’ve used the most rigorous security practices possible to get our message out…

Reports from the Edge: The NeoGen Revolution

Noted technologist Dr. Harry Glasimov from the University of Hellas on Mars has recently been overheard discussing the possibility of a Neogen revolution while “in his cups” after hours. CONN Reporter Geneva Morin passed along this recorded exchange between Dr. Glasimov and his star pupil, Alexandre Kondrati: “So, we know from CyQ reports that the…

Friendly Galactic Gunsmith – Stealth Armor

Though standard combat armor is meant to protect its wearer from harm, by either slowing or deflecting attacks, there is always a trade-off between protection, mobility, and stealth. In game terms, it’s similar to the difference between plate mail, chain mail, and leather. Plate is great for stopping attacks, but you are usually slow and…

Friendly Galactic Gunsmith – Weapon Mods

Last time we chatted about some fun hacks for ammunition. This time, let’s talk about the guns themselves. Characters with the Gunsmith trait can build, modify, or repair standard guns during Downtime. That’s pretty broad when we come right down to it. And if you specialize in a particular type of gun (Gunsmith: Pistol), you can…

Reports from the Edge: The Mystery of “Glitches”

Cydyne Report: Glitches, BANCE Space, and a Request for Additional Funding Report origin: Mars – Lunae Planum Dome, Cydyne HQ Report originator: Atris Morray, CyQ Operator No. BA3554Q There have been many theories regarding the sudden rise in “glitch” reports across Dominion Space and beyond in the last decade. Cydyne teams have continued to chase…
