(I decided that a bit more setup for a certain bit of the story was needed, so here's a bit more. probably a two-parter, with another bit coming soon. We'll see.)

Date: 4001890.M41
Location: Aboard the Deliverance, The Spaceport at Julius Landing, Hesch, Kinden-Hesch System, Krupp Subsector, Ultima Segmentum.

The sound of booted feet marching in step reverberates on deck plating and from there though the winding narrow metal tunnels that make up the bowels of the vast spacecraft, itself longer than the tallest building on the entire planetary surface. Fatigue-clad spacers guide the armored shock troopers via a circuitous route, one that Arbitrator Taranih Sharifpour decides need not have been nearly so lengthy. Why is not this rogue trader’s audience chamber located more conveniently, she wonders, or are they merely being delayed when it would truly have been a short trip under ordinary circumstances, and indeed are they merely being led into some trap?

Ostian troops keep vigil
Ostian soldiers keep vigil at the border.


SPECIAL REPORT


Vine, Ostia (Hesch Zyten) -- Ostian and Slevian troops exchanged laserfire across their heavily fortified border for the first time in about six months, a military official said today, with the incident coming as deteriorating ties take a turn for the worse.

The Pax Imperialis wiki has undergone a recent spate of updates.

Story has summaries and Imperial Calendar date-stamps for the story posts.

Things - Spacecraft is a new section detailing the ships that have shown up thus far, and is fully illustrated. The Deliverance and the Baron Frey feature prominently.

Races - Sathraasian has been greatly expanded, though the editorial process is (of course... this is a wiki after all) still ongoing.

Speaking of Sathraasians, there's a newly-colored pic of Trass'Sschall online now too (two, actually).

That will be all for the moment. More story posts shall be forthcoming soon. Carry on.

Here's a rundown of the Sathraas, the Xeno species that Trass'sschall belongs to.

Stars twinkle amidst the deep indigo skies over a sea of peaked roofs and towers. Streetlights compete with them, throwing a soft glow to the horizon, but in this neglected portion of the city, the streets are only intermittently lit, and only the weakest rays from the heavens penetrate the gloom in the narrow alleyways or under the eaves of cramped tenements.

Location: Slevia/Ostia frontier, Hesch, K-H system

Long mechanical legs pump rhythmically, carrying a lightly armored hull between tall trees. Birds sing and the wind whistles, carrying a reddish leaf within centimeters of Corporal Styger’s visor. He doesn’t pay it much mind, for his attention is divided between the woods around his sentinel walker and the vehicle’s sensor display. The machine spirit has detected movement and the warmth of at least one engine up ahead.

“Possible contacts at 11 o’clock. Follow on my flanks,” he speaks into his comm and half-hears the acknowledgements of his two squadron-mates. Up ahead, he sees a stand of brush on a slight ridge paralleling the shallow river that marks this part of the Slevian border.

[Crossposted to my own journal, just for fun]

Location: Aboard the Redoubtable, Inner K-H System, Toton Subsector, Ultima Segmentum.


The bridge of the Redoubtable is awash in a multidirectional pale glow from numerous monitors, holo-displays and telltales. It is often difficult to discern where bridge crew end and machinery begins; many of them have been permanently grafted to the warship that is their home and their tomb, embraced in viscera of tubing and braces. Uniformed armsmen stand rigid guard at the doors. The captain, resplendent in a navy blue greatcoat festooned with frogging and fringe, nods his head as the helmsman intones a status report including the headings and ETA of the two warships that are on intercept courses for the Redoubtable.

“Ident confirmed, Captain. Fierce and Stalwart,” the communications officer’s synthetic voice rises above the general hum.

Yup, I've made a wiki for PaxImp! Check it out and, if you feel so inclined, help it grow!

I'll gradually add to it and get pertinent information posted there where it's easier to get up to speed on happenings. I'll eventually have a page with links to and summaries of all story posts, plus how they connect together. It should be a good thing and make getting involved easier.

If you want to work on it then just ask privately and I'll give you the password. You're wlecome to help compile data from prior posts, to expand or otherwise edit character and place writeups, et cetera. A link to the wiki is in the group info as our homepage, and should be a helpful resource.
