Spirit activity picking up

April 16th, 2080

Has anyone else noticed all these spirits moving around Denver these days. While the city has been considered a safe haven for spirits for nearly 7 years now. But lately the number of spirits that are manefested in the area feels like it has increased.

Has anyone else noticed this?

I was walking around downtown yesterday and passed at least 3 dozen spirits in a block, compared to the 1 dozen metahumans/sapients. This is the way up from just a few weeks ago where it was about the same number of spirits as metasapients.

One theory I have come up with, is that there is something big going on in the magical community that us mundane people don't know about nore would we understand. If this is the case, I hope we don't get caught in the cross fire like we did back in march. Ghostwalker has done his best to keep the residence of the FRFZ safe, but sometimes it seems even a great dragon can keep us all safe.

Delta Clinic In Denver

April 11th, 2080

As someone who tends to get herself into sticky situations, I found myself in a real sticky one this week. There is a delta clinic in Denver. There has been a rumor about this floating around the matrix for years. However, no one has ever given the location of the clinic. That is, until recently when someone put up pictures and video of the Delta clinic. The video shows it exiting into the Evo Gardens, the post claims it is building 2 and has two underground entrances from parking garages several blocks from the gardens. I reached out to Evo for comment on this post. They denied the claim stating "Evo has no such place under the gardens". This seems a little contradictory to how all of the mega corps are acting to the news. As each corp has started to try and cover the post up and it has been removed from any corporate matrix grid. If I hear anything else about this I will be sure to update you.

Warrens reclamation slowing

April 6th, 2080

The warrens reclamation project that Ghostwalker started just 3 weeks ago has started to slow down as the construction crews working on it have to do more work than they did at the start and the pace at which people are being given SINs has also slowed considerably as the red tape for the documents gets slows it down. The current report states that they have about 50% of the warrens rebuilt, although they are only at about 30% of the warrens population given SINs or sent elsewhere. Ghostwalker himself has changed his tone a little as well, he is no longer touting about having the project done in a few months as the costs are higher than projected. The current estimate is to have it done within a year.

Triads moving into old warrens

April 2nd, 2080

As the construction crews head farther and farther into the warrens, leaving freshly built/renovated buildings in their wake. A new tennant is reportadly moving in, some people report seeing yellow lotus in and around Aurora area pools. We have talked to a few locals from the area that were recently given SINs. Some we talked to mentioned that they saw these people going back to some of the freshly build condos and apartments in the area that used to be the warrens. The ZDF have had no reported incidents of triad activity in the area, so only time will tell if they begin to leave china town.

Rebuilding the warrens

Ghostwalker announced Wednesday last week that he would start a reintegration program and rebuilding program for the aurora warrens. ZDF is spear heading the SIN creation process for everyone in the warrens. While multiple construction companies work on taking the existing buildings and either repairing, updating, or replacing them. The companies that are publicly listed as putting forth more than 1 million nuyen towards the rebuilding operation are Mesametric, Litehouse Construction, Peak Construction, M A Mortenson Co., and Alvarado. There are many more companies involved in this effort, but they are all getting paid in some way for all of their work.

This announcement comes just a week after a huge explosion in the warrens took out three buildings, set off a few Geiger counters and caused some minor panic around china town and Cherry Creek State park. Initial reports indicate it was an extremist group that was hiding out in an old subdivision east of the Kings territory in the warrens.

Reports of the rebuilding in the warrens say that the ZDF gather up everyone from a section of the warrens, have the construction teams come in and rebuild everything. Then release the citizens one at a time after getting fealty to Ghostwalker and then issuing a SIN to them if they do pledge fealty. If they do not wish to pledge fealty they are loaded onto a truck and evicted from the country. Some are saying they are just thrown over one of the borders, others are saying they are being sent to a UCAS or CAS city of their choosing.

Explosion in Aurora

March 16th, 2080

The Aurora warrens saw a huge explosion yesterday, coming from the region around a human only gang. The ZDF did not respond that far in, although they are working on cleaning up the warrens and getting everyone in their SINs so they can integrate back into the rest of society. This is in line with the troll sages that Ghostwalker has been working on over the past few months. The ZDF said they did send in a group much later to see if it was an intentional attack on the group, not that anyone would mind, or if they some how did it themselves. The current word is only based on rumors from the warrnes. But the word is that they were attacked and ended up blowing themselves up with explosives vests they were building. Good thing they blew up there and not where ever they were planning to attack.

Safe Life Defense under Investigation

March 20th, 2080

After an anonymous tip with emailed documents to back up the claims we here at The Front Range Herald looked into a possible scandal at Safe Life Defense’s Vitals medical company. What we found is a bit disturbing and has such been released to ZDF to dig into further. But here is what we can tell you currently. Safe Life Defense seems to have continued what the previous owner of the clinics and hospitals had been doing. There are records that shortly after their acquiring of the medical facilities several Human nation supporters managed to get hired back into the clinics and hospitals. Seeing the flaw in previous system they tried a new method to sterilize everyone who was not a mundane human. We don’t have an exact count yet for how many were affected, but it is probably best to double check yourself at another medical facility. This came at a time when the Hospital in Rosedale that is owned by Safe Life Defense was found to be infested with devil rats. Things are not looking great for the Vitals branch of Safe Life Defense.

CC and UN to hold international Summit

March 3rd, 2080

We missed the reporting on this as we had bigger new here at home, But back in late January the United Nations and the Corporate Court held an International Summit with the grand opening of the Skyhook Space Elevator down in Panama City. The Elevator has been partially operational since 2074, although this summit marks the full completion of the elevator. This is 5 years ahead of the projected schedule from 2074. This is great news all around as this elevator kept seeing delay after delay from its approval for construction in 2062. We do not have word yet on exactly what was talked about at the summit, more on that to come.

Genesis Medical having huge success

March 5th, 2080

The brand new medical company Genesis Medical is reporting record high first week patient numbers. This may have something to do with their current placements around the FRFZ with clinics and hospitals, it may also be completely false. While they are certainly seeing people coming and going, we sat outside one for a few hours yesterday and didn’t see nearly enough people to make the numbers they are claiming. This doesn’t mean they didn’t have those numbers in their first week though, this could just mean the flow of people has slowed down. Only time will tell.

Safe Life Defense losing Doctors

March 2nd, 2080

Safe Life Defense took over the Paladin health hospitals just over a year ago when Ghostwalker kicked the company out of the FRFZ. It seems that while they did manage to clean house and get the hospitals back on their feet. The clinics and hospitals in the area are now offering up job positions, some of which are even surgeons and head doctors. The rumor is that they are losing doctors to the new Genesis medical Hospitals and Clinics that are popping up around the FRFZ, We have been unable to confirm this at this time. More will be to come.

Head in the Clouds Scandal

February 20th, 2080

The PCC have released their findings, it seems that Head in the Clouds was doing something that is frowned upon in the international community as a whole, and illegal to the corporate court. The PCC says that they have reported the full list of findings to the court in case there are still members of the company left for them to go after. What we do know about the Scandal is that they used WIMPs of people they had turned into e-ghosts then let their customers do whatever they wanted to the WIMPs before a new one was used to replace them with the same personality living through it repeatedly.

PCC reports Head in the Clouds was shot down, possibly hundreds dead

February 16th, 2080

The PCC reported Wednesday the 14th that the floating corporate building Head in the Clouds made its way towards their country. The report states they hailed the vessel four times to let it know that it did not have clearance to cross the border. In their final warning before it crosses the border they warned it will be shot at as it does not have extraterritoriality and thus requires full clearance to be in their airspace. Shortly after it crossed the border, it seemed like the engines on it started to fail before the PCC sent surface to air missiles to intercept. The resulting explosion could be seen for miles as it was even above the mountains at the time. It was not visible for long though as it crashed into the mountainside. PCC authorities went to the crash site to try to find out what caused the vehicle to head across the border like that. What they found was disturbing to say the least. They found over 100 bodies in the wreckage, no one was at the helm, which seems to have been programed to go across the border by someone. They also found the dead body of the owner of the company, Lei Yanyu, in her apartment on board. The PCC is still looking into who all of the bodies belong to before releasing any more info

Reports of ghouls in Aztlan

February 22nd 2080

After the incident in Colorado Springs, there are reports of ghouls coming out of aztlan and into the PCC, these reports are being corroborated with employees of Spiritech that has an office in northern Aztlan. The office there is reporting that they have to regularly use their security system to fend of ghouls that come out during the night. They are currently working on finding the source to stop the continuation of the issue

Colorado Springs residents being asked to move

Colorado Springs residents are being asked to head north for a few days while ZDF and the watchers do some training. According to the order, it is to protect citizens while they do training in the city. The ZDF say this should be the only time they will do the training this was as they are working on a fake city to train in between Denver and the springs. They appreciate the cooperation and have promised that they will keep the damage to a minimum and repair any damage that may be done.

New Floating Building Coming to Denver

A new floating building is making its way into Denver, it just got clearance Tuesday to fly through Sioux territory. The building doesn’t move very fast so it may be a week or so before it gets here, but the company behind it (Head in the Clouds) is promising an experience you can’t experience anywhere else. They claim that you can experience any fantasy you wish to, with out the need for BTLs. If this turns out to be true, then it will be a revolution for the personal fantasy industry. The price to go up there is astronomical, and they are saying the first couple visits will be through BTLs so that they can cater to your wishes and have it ready before you arrive.

PCC reports large dirigibles coming from Aztlan

The PCC has reported multiple extremely large dirigible like craft coming from Aztlan air space. Aztlan is reporting they are not any of their ships. The PCC has been trying to hail the ships to get their course and possible divert, to no avail. The PCC have said that if they have not heard anything by the time they enter PCC airspace proper they will send fighters to investigate. Lets hope this doesn’t end up like another Shin-Delta flight 401.

Watchers in Colorado Springs

Over the last few days there have been multiple reports of Ghostwalker’s watchers turning up in Colorado Springs. The current count based on reports is 14 confirmed drakes, our sources confirmed for us that those are all Watchers for Ghostwalker himself. No one has been able to confirm that something big is going on down there, but that is our suspicion. When asked for comment, Colonel Bennett of the ZDF said the influx was for a standard training drill down at the base south of the city. Hopefully they will let the public know if there is something coming.

CEO of Bancroft Industries killed?

January 28th, 2080

This past Sunday Mr. Bancroft was killed. He is known for being the head of Bancroft Industries and for being the first CEO of a company that is a personafix. Because of this second fact, Bancroft is back to work already in a new WIMP that he had in waiting. The MItsuhama Security forces claim that Mr. Bancroft killed himself with his own pistol, although Mr. Bancroft does not believe this and for some reason doesn’t remember the two days leading up to his death. When asked what he was going to do about this, Bancroft responded by saying “I have a private investigator look into the matter to find the real culprit behind my death. I have full confidence in them and I am told they are the best in the business.” Bancroft would not go into any more detail on the matter nor mention who this private investigator is. Maybe they will find something that Mitsuhama missed.

Mile High University in talks with Wuxing over Compound

Febuary 2nd, 2080

In the weeks following the announcement from Wuxing, it seems Mile High University has been busy. They announced Wednesday that they had proof that Wuxing’s new compound was based off of work from one of the University’s professors. Wuxing responded to the claim asking to see this proof and that they would like to sit down and have talks with the school over production rights if the evidence is correct. Currently the two are in talks over the incident, and with ghoul attack and subsequent burning of Hudson people in the FRFZ are really hoping the two can work something out and get to producing the Compound.

Fear the Dark Didn’t Attack Hudson?

Febuary 1st, 2080

After weeks of investigating the attack in Hudson and the subsequent attack on Mr. Thomas, the Harker Organization has determined that Fear the Dark is not actually behind the attacks. The organization says that they had ruled out Fear the Dark fairly quickly, although they did not announce it until they had a lead on the actual culprits behind the attack. Harker organization has been given permission from Ghostwalker himself to pursue and destroy the actual attackers. Harker also told me that they are sending a team to where they believe the group is hiding out in.
