Giant Skeleton Discovered

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby zeke34 on Sat Aug 22, 2009 7:21 pm

*A Large Channel 9 News logo flashes accross the screen*

"This is Channel Nine News with Cindy Honalen coming to you straight from the digsite of what archaeologists are calling the find of the century. A skeleton of what seem to be a giant snake was recently discovered at the tip of Africa. I have here with me the head archaeologist, Haleh Jijimbi."

Camera pans to view a short african man in a dirt-stained white t-shirt

"So Mr. Jijimbi, what can you tell us about this skeleton?"
"Well, we estimate the length of the skeleton to be at least five hundred feet long, fifty feet tall, and we believe it is of some type of reptilian creature. We recently uncovered what seem to be the leg bones of the creature."
"And I believe you said earlier that there were human remains in the creature?"
"Yes, there seem to be at least a hundred human skeletons in the area we believe to be the stomach."
"Have you any idea what this crea- Oh my God what is that?"

Camera pans to a bleach white wave of powder sweeping over the landscape, atop it stands what looks like a man in a lab coat.

"This creature shall be my device!" the man screams as the white powder engulfs everyone, suffocating them.
The camera half-sticks out of the powder, the man just visible.
The man stands atop a small ledge, and chants an incantation, the skeleton slowly pulling together with dark necromantic energies. "You there in the stomach, you rise up also you lazy bones!" As if on cue, the human skeletons rise up, climbing out of the dig site. Just before the camera cuts, you see the skeleton fully risen, with a horde of skeletons below it.
Ahem. Kerawr

4th Reich Testing Zone.

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Rooster on Sat Aug 22, 2009 8:09 pm

This just in!

The Fourth Reich, led by Kommandant Ubel and the Thule society Have seized a health majority of land, for weapons testing.


Ubel had this to say.

The man, Kommandant Ubel, can be seen on screen, much like Adolph Hitler Broadcasted. A large audience, him at a podium in the center of the masses, speaking into a mic. Hands gesturing or slamming on the podium. It was obvious he was speaking in German. But Ubel had also provided a voice-over for Non-German listeners. His voice was strong, heavily accented and seemingly evil...But yet so..Breathtaking. You wanted to listen. You felt like you had to.

"Good Evening. You know me. I do not know many of you." He spoke, out to the masses before him. They cheered as the towering eight foot tall man leaned down to speak each time. "I am here to announce our development of a 'pocket-space' generator and transmutor... It is advised not stand in the way of our testing. We have taken only what seems needed for the testing zone and are happy to give it back. After..The tests have been done. Of course." The crowd cheers for him. "Lately..Our opponents, this Empire from the stars.. They tell us we will be crushed, yet promise peace. What I have read this as is simple, my people and brothers on this great planet. They want peace. Have no doubt they do. But this peace is a peace that involves more death. They will run us until we can not run any longer. And I will not let that happen. They have they technology to invade us. But now we do too, and I would like to give you a demonstration of The Fourth Reich's Power." He steps back from the stand. "Many of you have seen my Supersoldat, even are ones. But this is different. A personal project, if you will. SS Doomtroop!" Two small elevators rise up, displaying Troopers that looked just like his Supersoldat, yet a purple light shone through their goggles and similar colored electricity crackled through their uniforms. Instead of helmets these men wore Officer hats. "The new generation. These are my siege troopers!" Ubel was proud, like a father...Of scientific monsters. "Go on, go on. Show them your abilities.." A few targets popped up on the other end of the stage, they were already smoking. A hole through each head, right on the bullseye. When in reality they had both shot twice with their abilities, each of their second shots went through the other soldier's bullseye. "And there, the end of the canyon." He points, a few shapes barely visible popping up, a flash of purple. Headshots. "As some say. Bring it. My friends." A few SS wings flew over head and the crowd cheered.

InterGalactic Tranding Company News and Entertainment Network

Ah, yes, thanks Melony for the stunning report on spores, now to our economic section of this program, with the Omniversal Market Convention comeing to a close, we are recieving prilminary numbers as to who is pulling out on top, as usal, Trantor has again taken the number one slot for sales, but in a stunning upset, a relativily new empire has come out of nowhere to take second place, the Automatis Patronus, a nation made up entirely of machines, has closed the gap between Trantor and the usal number two slot, the AP has not only closed the sales gap, but has even broke Trantor's record for fastest growth in sales, if this keeps up we may see a new number one next cycle, also the rumors of an agreement between Trantor and the AP have sent market specuations through the roof, though neither side is willing to comment at this time

*The man concludes with a brief tap of his "papers" infront of him*

Now on to entertainment, where an unexpected death has rocked the scenes of Galactawood

Bar Fights and the Bad News Rolls On.

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Acorlei on Mon Aug 24, 2009 5:24 am

In the news recently!!!! Bad news!!!!

It seems that in local news the Forest of Memories is no longer safe! Witnesses say they saw a huge temple crumble as a party of 5 walked out of the temple with a mysterious herb. This herb seemed to have a healing property on a single person, the name of this person has been withheld to preserve confidentiality. The temple crumbled soon after due to recent damage to the supports from recent brawls with mythical creatures. Eyewitnesses have proclaimed that the temple was a sacred site and they are now rebuilding it.

In other news, recent fights at a local bar have had city officials worrying, with the sudden disappearences and reapperances of one man, locals say they are astounded that he hasn't been killed yet. THey also said that he had an accomplice, this rumor has yet to be confirmed.

This just in! The bar is now losing money! Locals say that there hasn't been a customer around in hours and the News Beacons are costing the bar money to broadcast. More on this at 11.

Even more bad news this just in, a girl, whos name will not be released, has died, it was reported that she died two days ago, unfortunately no one knew until early this morning when her sister reported it to two men in Gambit's Bar.

That's all for this edition of Bad News, have a very bright and good day.
It's all life, that's all it every was. I don't like the idea.

Demons in the bar! 5 patrons of the bar were engaged in a brutal fight with a seeming army of demons, after much slashing, tearing, stabbing, and all other form of butchery, the demons just seemed to disapear, only to be replaced by a Large woman, with monarch wings. Who, after laughing mainiaclly, disapeared without a trace. One of the participants of the brutal fight, was badly injured, but seems to be recovered.

Cat-Kids?!?!

In other, less brutal and gorey news, 3 kittens, and a seemingly homicidal rabbit, have been recently turned into four kids, who seem to have claimed a homicidal, undead, well-known maniac, as their Mother. It seems even cold hard killers can have a soft side, when it comes to kids. More on this, as it developes.

MURDER!!!

BREAKING NEWS! It seems that a well-known patron of the bar, Known as Ikki by those close to him, has been arrested for Murder! His execution is scheduled, but this reporter could not find a reliable source on the exact date of the execution will be fulfilled. It has also been reported that he had a supposed accomplice in this crime, but once again, among the slums of the bar, this reporter could not find a reliable source on the name of this accomplice, but there is a rumor that the accomplice will be realeased, within the week. More on this as Information is gathered.

Blood And Money

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby SinTakai on Sun Sep 13, 2009 1:39 am

A large Night News logo appeared on the screen at first, then was replaced by the reporter, having the Gambit's Bar in the background. The woman was rather short, her hair was blonde and her eyes were blue. She smiled at the camera and began

"Hello, I am Selena SIiverwind and I'll be your reporter for tonight's Night News!" she said with a smile as she also took a short bow.

"In earlier news, rumors say that several people, wearing the ancient colors of the forgotten Assassin's Guild has been seen." the camera revealed a man with neck length silver hair and silver eyes which was speaking with a woman about the same age as he was.

"Historical sources tell us that The Assassin's Guild was a old association that had very few members, only those who were truly strong being invited in. If the one who was invited accepted the invitation, he would be marked as one of the Assassin's and started working for them. They used to take on all kinds of jobs, starting from finding animals and ending with killing some of the most important people in history." he reporter nodded once more as she took a deep breath and continued "The people who bare the Assassin's Mark, on the lower part of their necks, told to us by reliable sources, are extremely dangerous and should not be taken lightly." the Assassin's Mark flashed on the screen afterward, Image stood there for several seconds then disappeared, going back to the reporter.

"In other news, the bar, like always is filled to the brim with people, but it seems we also have a young guest here." she said, the camera showing a young girl, that looked about 7 years old, sitting under the corner booth. "If any of the viewers recognize this girl please come and pick her up. She seems to be looking for her mother."

"That would be all for tonight's News, now back to you Jim~<3" Selena finished, taking another short bow.

Family Underground, Invasion of Gods, and a Slew of Fugitive

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Ylanne on Sun Sep 13, 2009 2:07 pm

The Family Underground
by Ylanne Sorrows


The Family, a close-knit group of psychotic individuals including the Harvester, Sakura Sango, Verith, and Yurikin, has recently gone underground. Normally ever-present in Gambit's Bar, to the point of having their own booth unofficially reserved, the Family has not appeared in some time, and is presumed to be operating underground, with vague plans to reappear at some point in the future. This has raised speculation among some of the bar's regular patrons, and according to the grapevine, the Family was involved in a feud with the Invictus PMC that erupted in a bloodbath some time last week, in which several outsiders were also injured.

Invasion of Gods
by Ylanne Sorrows


In the past several weeks, Gambit's Bar has seen an invasion of Gods, religious figures, and mythological figures (including immortals) including Jesus H. Christ, the Virgin Mary, Vishnu, Donovan Kelly, Lucifer son of morning, several demons, several djinn, and several angels. There have also been reported sightings of uberpowerful mortals, those who have survived Hell (Hell's Survivors), and other individuals possessing powers not seen among mere mortals, or those with the average power or two. Some wonder if Gambit's Bar has become the secret hideout of these powerful deities and individuals, and what this means for future skirmishes that will occur in the bar.

A Slew of Fugitives
by Ylanne Sorrows


With the appearances of characters such as Lori, Tahira Ali, and Maliera, bounty hunters, assassins, and mercenaries such as Grifter, the Desperado, and Marilyn Montgomery (the Drifter) have been frequenting the bar, sometimes resulting in dramatic firefights. There have also been a number of incidences where paramilitary organizations and government agents have been sighted in Gambit's Bar, people such as members of Invictus PMC, the People's Republic of China, the FBI, and Crosslin International. Employees of the bar wonder if these encounters will not lead to more violence that the bar is now reputed for.

Roleplayers?
by Ylanne Sorrows


A number of roleplayers, such as Sato, Ylanne, Ryand-S, and The Roleplayer, have made appearances in the bar, prompting inquiries about a website called http://www.roleplaygateway.com and all sorts of paradoxes that result from their present in Gambit's Bar. More to come. . .

Glorious Chinese forces retake Gambit's Bar!

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby barney_fife on Sun Sep 13, 2009 3:47 pm



In a brave move the Glorious Chinese People's Liberation Army swept through the multiverse in a bold move to retake a key strategic location for them, a place called Gambit's Bar.

"It is a strategic, and very valuable asset to the Chinese Military and our government, a projection of power for our nation, and a valuable place to collect resources." Was a statement released by the Chinese People's Liberation Army's spokesperson for the Dimensional Exploration team, General Ta Hun Kwai. China's long term plans for this place are unclear, and classified by the government, but what we have learned is that the PLA has plans to liberate the Bar and surrounding areas from Western capitalist oppression. The people at the bar have welcomed our dear soldiers with open hearts, and look forward to China to lead them in a new direction to unity and prosperity.

This is Sun Mei Ying, reporting, CCNN.

Chaos in Gambit's Bar once again!

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby LawOfTheLand on Tue Sep 15, 2009 9:44 pm

*The Trantor News Moment logo appears on the screen, then fade in to reveal a man in a tuxedo...clearly he's been called in at the last minute to do an emergency report.*

"Um...hi, this is Lemmy Lickett with the Trantor News Moment. In today's news, Gambit's Bar has turned into a warzone once again, and this time its valiant defender and bouncer, the Snow Warrior known to regulars as Cryoface was nowhere to be seen. He indeed fought bravely against the forces of anarchy with the tenacity and brute force that he's famous for, but apparently he was no match for the events of today: A Joker apparently managed to outmaneuver him, but his final trial was when someone summoned a fiery demon into the middle of the bar. Repairs are still under way, but if I was made of snow, I'd run away from a being enveloped in flames as well!"

"In other news, the enigmatic being known as Arcus Sol, thought by many to be an incarnation of the immortal Master, happened to re-appear in the middle of the row. Other notable figures such as Motoko Attenborough and Kroger Haggai were also named in the report. Interview requests have yet to be answered, however, and we will do our best to keep you up to date on the details of the scrum as they are made clear."

GNN Special Report

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby ClockworkTowers on Wed Sep 16, 2009 2:00 am

*The GNN Logo Shows for about 5 Seconds*

Hello, welcome to this GNN News Special Report.

In the news today, Hygerion Technology Center's scientist have claimed they made a breakthrough on Miniaturization Technology. Whereas before, the Basic Version was there, they call this, Enhanced Miniaturization.

A spokesperson for the Hygerion Technology Center had this to say on the new Miniaturization technology: "Remember Miniaturization? It was pretty great wasn't it? I mean, with the making things smaller and stuff and junk. Well, Enhanced Miniaturization is like, you know, way way better. The reason it's better is because it's enhanced. This is quite different from regular Miniaturization which is, as we all now know, not enhanced."

In related news, stock in Hygerion fell 25 points today in heavy trading... and took another 50 point plummet before the end of the day. As a positive, the stock in light trading gained a good 10 points, ending at 129.43.

Elsewhere, Dr. Carol Markus claims he has discovered a way to "bring life, from lifelessness." The full quote from his interview was as follows.

"The Genesis effect er, I mean the terraforming planetary improvements allow us to bring life, from lifelessness."

People hailed this as the beginning of something new and interesting.

In the meantime, we have no word of the American Ambassadors sent to go and negotiate political treaties with the Drengin. Whether they are alive or not is still a question, although a poll showed that 73% believe they are in fact, dead, while 12% believed they are alive still. The remainder were undecided on the issue. Someone had this to say on the Drengin.

"The Drengin are not what you would call a friendly race. Oh, they'd have you over for dinner; not as a guest, but as the main course. Some people say that any being capable of interstellar travel has to be reasonable at some level. They say that hostility and violence from such a race must be the result of a misunderstanding; that if we could just empathize with one another, we would get along splendidly and soon be having a cup of tea together. These people have never met a Drengin."

It is assumed that the Drengin are a very nasty people indeed. That wraps up this special report. Thank you for watching.

Warring factions present in Gambit's Bar?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Saarai on Wed Sep 16, 2009 3:56 am

The Intro to the WCNN (Wing City News Network) is shown before the screen shifts to anchorman Erick Kelly, Erick was wearing a dark purple suit as he reported the news.

"Gambit's Bar, a place that is no stranger to violence and chaos. But today the violence and chaos was different, today several different factions engaged in battle in Gambit's. Casualties are said to be high and damage is said to have been severe."

The screen shifted to show the bar and surrounding area after the fighting, bodies and parts to vehicles and weapons were scattered around.

"The Invictus Company, the PLA, the Aschen, and a few other individuals were said to be those involved with this fighting. Some of the individuals that could be placed at the seen are the following: Kazen Horne, the son of diseased IRA lieutenant colonel Patrick Horne, Ta Hun Kwai, the current PLA general, and an unknown being who's name we could not retrieve."

The screen would show any available images of Kazen, Patrick, and Ta Hun before showing Erick again.

"Interviews are at this time being sought with John "Nocturnal" Izumi, General Kroger Haggai, and Kazen Horne of the Invictus. Ta Hun Kwai of the PLA. And any others that may have been involved or may have seen something.

"More on this story as it develops. Tonight, Vampires? Turning tricks? We'll find out when Lisa Valderrama goes to see if the Vampires are only sucking blood these days. Tonight at 11..."
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

A human reporter, looks to the camera. "Hello! John Monn here! In front of Gambit's bar with The Terrible Terrier! So Terrier! We at 100 Percent news hear you fell through a roof, is this true?"

Terrier looks embarassed under his mask, "Ah, well, THAT incident, yes... It happened recently no less. Ummmmm. Well, it happened after people reported that a crazed maniac had made an electric guitar and amplifier appear out of thin air using a 'magic pencil'. He 'drew' the items, and apparently blasted music loud enough to begin to weaken the supports of the building and the roof. I went to my location on the roof and the roof collapsed, I fell through 2 stories of building to crash landed on the ground in front of Arcus Sol, a very well known being in the bar. I was healed later by Motoko Attenborough. I thanked Motoko and got back on my feet to get back to work, althugh the pain was grueling."

Monn is being sarcastic, "So Terrier, I hear you need more 'bouncers' in that bar, because another help to bar security named Cryoface? Is it? I hear he has been lately suffering injury so bad that he can not protect the bar as well as he used to."

Terrier recalls seeing Cryoface in battle, "Cryoface, he... he is a man, although technically he isn't human. He has been doing his job so well, even before I arrived on the scene, his work in the bar is always enjoyed. He makes great conversation... but yes, he has been sustaining VERY heavy injuries lately. A few of them being the work of a mysterious being named Joker. I had always wanted to fight Joker, but after seeing what happened to Cryoface... I couldn't bear the thought."

Monn says jokingly, "So... Terrier? You hiring for new security officers in the bar?"

Terrier is befuddled, "Me? No, I protect because it is my civil duty. If anyone wishes to help the bar, do it of your will, not because you have to. If the bar is hiring, they should talk to Motoko, or The Bartender, whose name I don't know."

Monn seems enthusiastic, "Well Terrier, we thank you for your time. We wish you much better times and good luck with your back injury. That's it for this edition of the 100 Percent news, this is John Monn signing out!"

Failure To Bring Light Into The Shadows

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Dragon on Sun Sep 20, 2009 3:35 pm

The screen darkens and begins fading out into static as if losing the signal before snapping back into place, the channel 1337 logo in the bottom right corner. Still with the picture mostly blurred, an Asian reporter comes into focus, a semi-panicked expression on her face as she speaks into the microphone clenched between her fingers.

"Good Evening. This is reporter Hanna Wong currently in the area that served as a battlefield between The Chinese forces and a single entity known as Lucien Lachance. The battle seems to have ended and the dust settled..."

The camera pans out toward the field, the ground singed with steam rising from it, littered with countless bodies and wreckage. The earth seems to be terraformed, massive upheavals in some places casting shadows over drying magma. In one area in particular there seemed to be a large cluster of hail, their size comparable to fully loaded SUVs. The almost violent winds that forcefully pushed through the area almost knocked the woman to the ground, she stumbling but quickly regaining her footing. The sky had been consumed by thick clouds, the plane devoid of light as lightening continued to rampage in the background.

"As you can see, this was quite the confrontation..." She says while maneuvering under the remains of a tank, the camera man trying his best to follow without tripping over corpses, his camera turning downward to take in the image of a man, his skull smashed inward with it's contents spilled out across the dirt. "...Leaving this reporter asking wh-..." She began before cutting off, turning her gaze toward her left having heard a very painful shout. Quickly, she and her camera man dart over, giving the footage a 'Cloverfield' effect. Arriving at the source of the noise, they find a man missing everything below his waist, intestines sprawled about leading into a small chasm. The camera man can no longer stand by and doubles over, vomiting his stomachs contents onto the ground. With a look a of disgust, the report bends down beside the injured man."Sir, are you okay?" - "No, No! We... we outnumbered him... superior numbers... superior fire power... We were prepared and still..." The man turns to look around him at the carnage for displa "Oh no... I CAN SEE THEM! THOSE SILVER EYES!!! MAKE THEM GO AWAY! KILL ME! KILL ME! KILL ME! KI-"

The camera cuts it's feed and leaves the 1337 logo suspended in the middle of the screen...

NEWS BEACON Crashes and Godwin Hiltering!

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Ponats on Sat Sep 26, 2009 8:35 am

A man in a business suit is holding papers as he sits in front a camera. He reads off the sheet, going in a melodramatic tone.

"With recent light of the war, we at..."

Pink dressed anchor woman flies in, smashing the side of the news man with her hip. Sending him flying off stage as she tries to fix her messy hair. "This just in!" She yells at the camera. A stubby bald man comes in, grappling to her leg and trying to frag off the blond. He has a name tag that says 'Manager Rem' on it. She kicks at him as she keeps her eyes on the camera.

"The NEWS BEACON that floats around the city, giving news annoying news updates every 15 minutes, has been getting shot at randomly thru out the city! Many patrons find the beacon redundant, useless, and out right disruptive to activities around the area!"

The man is dragging her more successfully off the stage as more news people start trying to drag her off the center set. She holds on to the secured news desk as she continues.

"Recent reports from our reporter, Godwin, has recently discovered that the a clone of Hitler may behind all these NEWS BEACONs! Even as citizens thankfully destroy and maim the devices, more keep showing with red swastika armbands and..."

She flies off, unable to hold her grip as noises of crashing and commotion go off screen. The news feed brakes off with a 'We will return shortly' message and the beep accompanied with it.
Meh.

Ubel would like to note that Him and the men and women of The Fourth Reich have no alignment with the supposed Nazi-News beacons.
That is all.
