1) Thorns Only Info: Thorns and Briars in Nearby Forest - Rumors and later warnings about thorny briars and strange, non-native vines growing in thick patches in parts of the woods have likely been heard by all Thorns by now. These growths have already made a few parts of the woods impassible. Many are warning not to allow children or the elderly travel in the forest alone, lest they get lost and trapped. The thorny briars are especially to be avoided as a single scratch causes an intense numbing to the scratched area.
2) Offworld Explosions! Fri, Oct 12 2018 3:47:55 PM PDT - Several explosions rocked the offworld colonies today. Explosions at Corvinia Hall, Platform Six, and Yestrel Mori were claimed by an entity going by the name of "Three". All three explosions took place at the docks of these colonies, temporarily shutting down access or exit from the colonies whilst the docks are searched. It is believed that this will hamper many offworld supplies coming back to Juniper.
Shortages from the offworld explosions are beginning to be deeply felt within New Convergence. Platform Six being the largest fishing platform on Xymar, and now being locked down due to the attack...means the price of fish has skyrocketed. Fishing at the Well has been curtailed to prevent overfishing in the wake of the problem. Upmarket chefs are beginning to explore...strange new options such as Nutrifish, fish-like substance made from a tofu-esque vegetable product known as Squig.
3) WDUK: Nexus Explosion - Sun, Sep 23 2018 1:17:28 PM PDT - At about 11am, there was a shootout at the Nexus which resulted in the Nexus Shelter being heavily damaged by an explosion. According to eyewitnesses, a bunch of possibly hacked city drones showed up and began damaging the Nexus Shelter and bystanders. Afterwards, several large heavily armed mechs pummeled the shelter while the drones inside exploded. It is believed that at least one citizen, Alleo, manager of the Nexus, died whilst rescuing innocent victims of the attack.
4) WDUK: OFL Separatist Activity in Convergence - Fri, Sep 14 2018 1:46:18 PM PDT - The offworld separatist group "OFL", or "Offworld Freedom League", often pronounced "awful" or "offal" by those who dislike them, has stepped up activity in Convergence. This group, which wishes to be independent from Juniperan Control, often strikes at those entities which are involved with, or seek to control, offworld colonies. If you see OFL activity, it might be best to report it to any local authorities.
5) New Holographs Appear Across the City - Sat, Sep 15 2018 12:06:32 PM PDT - These holographs appear to be just...hanging around in mid-air in streets and alleyways. There are probably nano-projectors or hidden items projecting them. They say: "There were never any iceworms. This was just said to keep the water supply artificially low!" "The snow was caused by magical tampering. A side-effect of mind-control magics!!" "Soon the city will turn on itself. You have been warned!" All of the holograms are signed only, "3".
