Jacek Regolith, Senior Editor for CNB to Resign

I’m writing this to announce I will be leaving the Colonial News Bulletin in the near future. You may have read earlier that I was arrested by the New Gyr Militia on charges of being an Agerran Purist. Let me elaborate on this and put all rumors to rest. I must note that this is being published as a condition by the New Gyr Militia of being remanded into my own custody.

Prior to erupting into a shouting match between Enterios and the reset of the major faction leaders of Voyage Point, New Gyr – the Enterios Press Conferences started like any other.

Messages from Nyr Fan, Representative of the Gyra Refugees

One influential person during the early days of New Gyr, back when it was Phaelos III, was Ryl Nyr-Fan, representative of the 20 million Gyra refugees and member of the Silent Conversation.

She spoke to the colonists that Gyr was still a political force and sought to have the Gyra treated as a political entity and worthy of respect. She also requested that they be listened to.

Speaker Ryf-Av, Silent Conversation: Call to End the Blockade of Agerre

Each morning I wake up and keep to a ritual. Shower. Dress. Coffee and a smoke outside the newsroom. Breakfast occurs somewhere in there, along with some chatting and the start of the workday.

But as I have my coffee and smoke, I take in the scene around me that many others in New Gyr take for granted each day. Green grass and trees toward one horizon. A breeze carries fresh salty spray from the other horizon. Above, a blue sky that kisses the ocean as the two meet in the distance.

Baryosi Comma is Pointless Punctuation

There has been blood spilled. This war has spread to nearly all worlds and has resulted in dozens of duels. And now, dear reader, the war has reached New Gyr and our own very newsroom. Rest assured that I will stand with you on the side of that which is correct, which all peoples can agree is good and just. We will stand opposed to the Baryosi Comma!

Baryosi Assassin Found Guilty, Previously Hid on New Gyr

Two weeks ago, Baryosi citizen Emeka Chi’kelu was found guilty of the attempted assassination of two legitimate business people on Baryos. About three years ago, Chi’kelu attempted the assassination but their plot was foiled when an Ottsallian Purse animal of some interminant species began making noise (court records show both squawking and barking) which reveiled Chi’kelu’s presence.

After the failed plot, Chi’kelu fled to New Gyr to “lay low”, but they were discovered by the New Gyr Militia about two years ago based on a tip from a local informant.

Through its research, the Colonial News Bulletin has officially linked Enterios as a contributor to the rat problem on New Gyr. Multiple documents and accounts from the planets founding, when it was still called the Phaelos III colony, were studied.

The Life and Death of Ya-rett

Arlann Ya-rett was born on Gyr. He was killed while attempting to steal an Commonwealth Capital Ship, which was successfully captured by his Agerran confederate Admiral Therra. The things that happened between these two events are open to debate and interpretation, but it cannot be denied that they had a resounding effect felt across the entire galaxy from the thriving homeworld of New Gyr to the now continuously blockaded Aggere. As we look back at the history of New Gyr’s founding, we must examine the life and history of Ya-rett.

Knots have tied up New Gyr Fashion

If you’re into the latest New Gyr fashion, you cannot say “Not I” to wearing knots. They can be used in neckwear or incorporated into belts, accessories and even clothing. Turn an ordinary top into an extraordinary one by adding a knot or two in the straps, or a simple length of leather or cord around the waste with an elegant knot offset by some beads or gems. But be careful, there are meanings in knots so what may look cool and fashionable might make your partner jealous if it’s sending a message that you are available.

Flying High as a Kite in Phaelos III’s Early Days

Kite is an illegal drug in the form of a small, red, fish-shaped candy that, when ingested, produces a significant high in the user. The feeling of being “as high as a kite” is where its name originates. When the first colonists arrived on New Gyr, what was then simply Phaelos III, it became very apparent that the little red fish had swam along with them.
