From The Desk of Slash Morgath

Greetings My Friends,

As I write this an old year is dying and a new year beginning. With this new year come changes that have forced me to make some decisions regarding SlashMart Corporation and it's activities.

I am sad to announce that I will be closing SlashMart Corporation, it's News Stand affiliate, and the Nomos Business Alliance effective January 7th. This is when our rent and the agreements with our suppliers expire.

As you know my strategy with SlashMart has always been to give you the best goods for the cheapest prices possible. So I am also announcing the SlashMart Going Out of Business Sale!
We will be blowing everything out to the bare walls till the padlock goes on the doors! Prices will be so low that I just can't advertise them! Come one! Come all! Get everything you need at the best prices you will ever see!

Go see Slash! Go see Slash!! GO SEE SLASH!!!

The 12 Rounds of Christmas- Skyway Arena

On the first day of Christmas my opponent gave to me... a black eye and a dislocated knee.

Didn't get that shotgun you wanted for Christmas, and much as you'd love to tell him what you think of it, Santa is nowhere to be found? Share the festive spirit with your fellow Nomos residents in no-holds-barred, nutcracking holiday combat. All they want for Christmas is your two front teeth. Yule never forgive yourself if you miss this opportunity. O come all ye faithful down to the Skyway Arena, 7PM SLT, Christmas Day and join us for a violent night, heedless of the wind and weather.

Intake for this event is unlimited, but there are six positions for advancement to the next round. If less than six people attend, all will automatically advance. If you can make it and would like to fight, it would be appreciated if you would sign up in this thread so we know whether we'll get the numbers we need.

Look Out Nomos

Look out Nomos, there’s a new Sheriff in town.

With the arrival of a new District’s Attorney, will this bold new step
by Metrotek do anything to curb the rampant crime of our city?
With the power and authority of Metropol
challenged more and more with each passing day, it would seem that the Metrotek Corporation has finally risen to the challenge and sent along a new District Attorney to crush the rampant criminalization of Nomos as well as the rebellious groups seeking to undermine Metrotek’s rule.

The arrival of Mr. Drake Deacon could well mark a turning point in how things are done in our city. Mr. Deacon is something of a driven and determined individual, intent on achieving his goals and bringing order to Nomos. Upon his arrival, his office issued this press release to Streetlife, outlining his approach to crime and criminality;

“If you come before this court, let it be known. I will personally see to it that if convicted, you will spend the rest of your miserable life in prison. And not the Holiday Inn we have down stairs where they bring you food, and allow you to shower. The REAL prison. SS Newgate. For the rest of their days. I personally guarantee it.”

Certainly this new hard-line approach could prove to be infinitely more effective in fighting crime, specifically repeat offenders and those who commit more serious offences. Even the most hardened criminals are known to be somewhat adverse to life-sentences in SS Newgate. However, what concerns this reporter is the prospect of potentially innocent citizens being caught up in the fervor of Mr. Deacons’ wrath. Not only would one then have to fear the sleazy corruption of Metropol but also the indiscriminate “justice” from the DA’s office.

Perhaps, this reporter might be so bold to suggest that instead of hounding the good citizens of Nomos, Mr. Deacon turn his attention to the true criminal underbelly of Nomos: Metropol. As citizens we are all too keenly aware of how Metropol rule the streets with an iron fist, irrespective of who is a criminal and who is not. This is the true injustice of the streets. Only time will tell if our new DA will do anything to rectify it.

An Acquired Taste for Murder?

The Naked Lunch Diner has always been a destination for Nomosians to kick back and relax to the melodic blues of old. However, recent events of the past week has had the diner snatch a bloody moment in time, resulting in the massacre of three Nomos civilians.

Former Naked Lunch manager Cajun [surname witheld] was amongst the deceased and already under speculation for underground dealings.

According to Metropol he was a notorious criminal that needed to be 'eliminated'. No official release has come from the offices of Metrotek, however Chief Kurt Flanx openly admits to the seige being a product of the corporation's orders.

"There was a criminal that the company wanted eliminated." he states. "We went there and did our job."

Passing witnesses had claimed that The Naked was surrounded by Metropol in the early hours of the night. The use of UV lights added much to the cities speculation of whether they were hunting the alleged undead.

Shots were fired and three had fallen. The other deceased residents were identified as Nami and Sin [surnames witheld]
Miss Daniel Kuro who had aquired new ownership of the Naked Lunch, claims to have still been cleaning up the bloody mess before letting the business re-open it's doors.

"Yes i was cleaning little bits of man up before i could open today," she says. "I found empty shell caseings under the couchs and all the furniture riddled with bullet holes."'

Valeryie Larix, who was present during the Metropol siege, was also present for comment on the night's events after having survived it all.

"We, me... Cajun, Sin and Nami. All just sitting here in the Naked Lunch. Cajun was enjoying his music, like usual. Then Metropol... It was a raid.." she stammers, "Cajun tried to reason with Kurt.. He just.. kept shouting to get us. Someone.. a flash bang. It was so loud. All of us were.. we couldn't do a thing. We were trapped."

Miss Larix's statements confirm the trauma that is potentially released from the brute force of Metropol.

When questioned about who was to take on the accountability of the deaths during this siege, Chief Flanx made no hesitation in raising his hand.

"I might as well take accountability for every death that takes place around here, but you know how it is, you're either with us or you're little people," he claims. "I'm just another hitman that Metrotek's hired, dont mistake me for anything more than that. Do I deserve everyone's hatred? Yes... I do."

The question now arises; Is such open brutality really the necessary path Metrotek are taking to get their way?
Stay tuned, Street Life are sure to investigate further.

A Rat Race for Fine Dining

Rumours have plagued the city over the last few weeks of Nomos eateries stocking their back rooms with rat meat.

Street Life sources indicate a number of possible disgruntled employees, or business owners are making use of this unsavoury option.

Street Life this morning sat down with Strontium Dog Diner manager Frederik Yalin for his thoughts on the city rat speculation.

"Well, i heard this too," he says. "You mean inferior rat meat that is signed as cow or other stuff? Or ya mean a delicious original rat burger?"

The original rat burger in which Mr Yalin is referring to is the special served up for certain clientele, who may have a taste for such rodents.

"I try to make ALL my customers content and happy, so if someone would demand rat burger,why shouldn't i serve them?", he quizzes. "On the other hand i can assure that i do everything to keep the high quality that the diner has. i am the last one who is interested in bad publicity"

Mr Yalin points out that whilst rat is a controversial ingredient on the menu of The Strontium, it's quality is assured to differ greatly to the variety that is rumoured to have contaminated other diners.

"You get what you order: It's that easy. Of course we don't take ratz from here. i won't take a bite of a nomos sewer rat, ya knows?" he claims "everyone knows about the ratz here and diseases. i import them from outside. Ya knows."

Mr Yalin continues to stress his concerns for allowing the infected rat meat to be sold over the counter.

"My biz is close to the cop station. do you fink i would sit here when they would find out i feed rat to them?" he chuckles "they would saw me into small pieces"

In terms of trusting the employees of The Strontium and avoiding the potential of theses 'sewer rats' making it into their kitchen, Mr Yalin has hired business partner Miss Betsabe Enzo to ensure things are kept in line.

"I even announced a co-tenant to keep an eye on the assistants," he states. "My companion. She is good in biz and marketing and very good in dealing with people. I couldn't imagine a better one."

According to this interview, The Strontium Dog Diner comes up clean in terms of the rumoured rat issue. It's claim for 'legitimate' rat meat will require further investigation. Street Life however will continue to investigate other eateries in the coming weeks so you really know what you're eating.

One citizen shows off his catch of the day

The Bigger They are, the Harder They Fall

After jaw-dropping revelations at the trial of Cassandra Nymphea, does this mark the beginning of the end for Metropol and Chief Kurt Flanx’s iron grip on the good city of Nomos?
The infamous Winston Churchill once said that “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” This reporter is here to testify, however, that this time, the truth has triumphed and most certainly caught up with the twisted lies of Metropol, and Chief Flanx has well and truly, been caught with his pants down.

It was not so long ago that this fine publication brought you the distressing story of the disappearance of the Club Primal dancer and hybrid, Cass. It is with a heavy heart that this reporter must confirm our worst fears. Cass was found to be murdered only recently and we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to her family and friends, who are no doubt grieving over such a tragic loss.

To say that the circumstances surrounding Cass’ death are suspicious would be a grave understatement. Sensationally, MetroPol arrested Cass’ twin sister; Cassandra Nymphea for the murder of her own sibling, on what we were led to believe was damning, physical evidence. When the prosecution, defense and jury gathered, however, the story was altogether something different. The scientific evidence provided by Dr. Cabalot Serenity underpinned the case of the prosecution. The good doctor claimed, amidst several disturbances, that the defendant Cassandra Nymphea had been psychologically tampered with by Psychotek and as a result, had been tagged with a “unique genetic marker” which made identification of even identical twins possible. The doctor went on to explain that after careful examination of the bullet found in the victims skull, it had been determined that the genetic markers belonged to that of her sister, proving, as Metropol claimed, that she was the murderer.

Throughout the entirety of the doctor’s statement there were several disturbances to the court, one of which would prove most interesting and damning to Metropol’s case and calls into question the very integrity of the whole organisation and its leadership. Officer Valeryie Larix would provide the bombshell of the night, in her dramatic outburst half-way through the case. Officer Larix revealed to the court that the entire prosecution was based on lies, designed to protect their own necks. Much to the notable distress of Chief Flanx, Miss Larix went on to describe how Cass really died. Quoting Officer Larix, herself and Lt. Derek Miles were questioning Miss Nymphea when, predictably with Metropol, things got out of hand. In defense of Officer Larix, Mr. Miles “shot for her [Cassandra’s] ear” but missed, killing her.

The official line from Metropol, as dictated by Chief Enforcer, Kurt Flanx is that “the defendant, Captain Derek Miles has admitted to the crime... despite our best intention to press on the trial and prove his innocence. He's gone home to his wife to bid his farewell before being sent to serve time in prison.” Has Justice been served? Hardly.

When questioned on the recent case, and the rampant accusations that he and his organisation had full knowledge of the facts revealed to us by Officer Larix and knowingly constructed a prosecution of lies and false evidence, Chief Flanx had this to say: “Those are in itself major accusations, ones that will not be tolerated by Metropol. We are the law enforcement agency in the city, our business is enforcing Metrotek law, and we do not serve the public's interest.” Perhaps then, ladies and gentlemen, it is time we began to serve our own interests.

The true question that lays before us citizens of Nomos goes beyond the brutal murder of one of our own. It is embedded in the dark and dirty underbelly of a corrupt Metropol and will eat away at our city if we do nothing to stop it. Why is it that we allow Metropol to figuratively and literally, get away with bloody murder? Why is it that we stand by and allow them to rule us with an iron fist, when they are clearly not even capable of a decent cover-up? These people are not only incompetent, they are dangerous and on a rampage and we, as citizens, should not stand for it.

Perhaps it is time that Metropol is reminded that serve Metrotek as they might, it is you and I who are the citizens of this city and we will demand fair and just treatment from our law enforcement. Justice may be blind but she is a punishing mistress and you cannot repress her forever. Retribution will be swift and fatal for those who thwart truth and justice, no matter how mighty they may be.

Dr. Cabalot Serenity's Science Report- New Virus Research

As it's become common knowledge, Nomos has a new strain of the Virus. Once only a minor nuisance, the virus has mutated, making the infected delirious and much more aggressive.

Because of the recent Nomos invasion by a swarm of virus infected zombies, which have also had the unfortunate side effect of infecting our rat population. I felt compelled to investigate and learn more about the nature of this new affliction. After retrieving archives and scientific journals from the deceased scientist who have besieged us with this plague, I'm saddened to report that once again, pencil pushing bureaucrats, concerned only with themselves and the "bottom line" are behind this abomination.

The infected miners were people once, with lives and families, trying to eek out a living by working the Numasol mines. Life in the Mines can be relentless, as they work long hours past the point of collapse because of productivity enhancement drugs they are forced to take as a part of their contract. But as the miners became increasingly more disenfranchised with their compensation, and the time away from their families, there was talk of forming a union.

MetroTek's response to this threat was to create a new "productivity enhancement" drug which would suppress their will, and cause them to forget both the amount of time they've spent in the mines, and their families.

The scientists extracted a toxin from a breed of Algae in the earth's oceans called "Pseudo-nitzschia."

The population of this algae explodes in rich concentrations of Iron. The iron and algae produce a red color which has been named the "Red Tide."

The toxin itself is called Domoic Acid ("Demon" on the streets). Domoic acid was originally isolated from the red alga in Japan back in 1958.

In humans, or any species with significant humanoid physiology, the toxin attacks the brain, producing confusion, memory loss and hallucinations. By modifying this toxin, the goal was to make the Miners work harder, and feel better about it. Instead, the toxin erased their brains and increased feelings of fear and aggression. The infected Miners see everyone except each other as a threat, feel no pain, and will relentlessly target and pursue anyone who gets in their way. Infected rats, who share many common physiological traits with humans, are affected the same way.

I have been working on a permanent cure, but the research is slow, and the outlook is not promising. Meditek has managed to create a new vaccine, modified from the vaccine against our original virus, but the effects are short lived. Every species afflicted with a harmful pathogen always seems to have a handful with a natural immunity. But I have not found any such subjects amongst the Nomos population, and so I'm stuck working with weakened strains of a live virus for a vaccine which wears off, creating no permanent antibodies. I remain both fascinated and frustrated by this new pathogen.

Souped Up Saints

The local church of Nomos has a new addition in the form of a soup kitchen alongside it's property, guaranteed to latch onto the taste buds of many citizens.

The church has recently undergone new ownership with siblings Amelie [Minor Arcana] and Andre Arcana [Major Arcana]. The duo, who have only recently arrived in the city, have the confidence to run the church in the most positive light.

Amelie Arcana who was available for comment claims that the soup kitchen is a callaborative effort between themselves and the Miners Light Hostel.

"It's a project we are starting in co-operation with the Hostel, understanding that many who seek shelter there also are want for food." she says, "We found ourselves in a position to offer it to them. We will not turn away those who are not in poverty, though. Some people just like soup. These people should help defray the costs of the operation, too... but our main concern is to feed those who otherwise would not be fed."

"Anything that feeds people is good," says Sister Judy. "We try to help all we can"

In terms of prices, the Arcana's seem savvy with their balance of good value to their customers and fairness to their surrounding businesses.

"The prices will change regularly. Those we are aimed at mostly will have it for what they can afford. Today, those who are not starving will have it for 10G, but the prices will be modified as we consult local businesses about their pricing," she claims. "We'll do this regularly, so as not to have too great an effect on the local economy. I don't want our soup to become a popular alternative to sushi, or burgers, that it is harmful to the business of others."

Even with the history risen and inflated prices in some of the businesses in Nomos, the concern does not seem to phase the Arcana's who still hold a healthy outlook for running their business.

"Should they wish to sell their food for less than our soup, then those we are trying to help would only benefit from that and I would still consider this a success," she says. "I cannot think of any area we require their consideration, so long as we do not seriously offend anyone to risk attempts at direct rivalry."

The Arcana's prior to their arrival to Nomos were performers.
"We are not what many would expect when they hear our titles here," says Miss Arcana. "André and I have travelled together since we were very young. We've had an exciting life. We did a lot of theatre, singing, performing. Both of us are big fans of cabaret, and we've toured with a number of small groups."

Though their past, on first impressions may be a slight contrast the church lifestyle, Miss Arcana maintains that it does not necessarily differ to that of running the church.

"It's not so surprising a move, we're in the same business we always have been. It's making people smile, sharing the wisdom which I think, all modesty aside, we've obtained in our time. It's knowing how to talk to people," she says. "Not everyone has the same buttons and something you learn as a performer is how to work with that. We saw the church as a better platform for sharing our ideas and helping folk that the clubs had been previously. "

Miss Arcana sums up her ideas with the church with this final message.

"We should like to make it known that all are welcome in here. To speak, to listen. We have all this space to be used and we'd like to see people in here sharing their thoughts with each other. Anyone," she says. "There's this assumption that factional or racial affiliations can make you persona non grata, but it's no longer the case, if it ever was."

Kidnappings in Nomos?

Whispered reports of women being targeted by a dangerous criminal. Are you next?

Not only are the good citizens of Nomos faced with rat-infested streets, criminal injustice, corruption and brutality, now the women of Nomos must also be on full alert after this reporter heard rumors of a serial kidnapper roaming the streets and clubs of our beloved, smog-ridden city.

That’s right ladies. Not only must you concern yourself with leering men on every street corner and Metropol officers with wondering hands, but also the frightening possibility of being targeted by Nomos’ latest infamous criminal. Very recently, two young girls have gone missing, right from under everyone’s noses. One young woman, Cass, a good friend of many and an employee at the Club Primal, was followed home by this man after leaving the club and has not been seen since. How is it that no one was there to help her? Why have the security tapes not been examined yet?

Surely, after a string of disappearances, it is good cause for Metropol to step up to the plate and protect the good citizens of Nomos? Although a reliable sources has reported that Metropol have finally been informed of the situation and have promised to “look into it” surely this is simply too late? While Metropol have been standing around countless more women could have been taken and yet to be reported missing, we simply do not know. But this reporter goes as far to suggest that we could all have felt a good deal safer if Metropol had already done this job and arrested this criminal.

This reporter seeks to ask several questions of this incident. Firstly, why where Metropol not informed of this incident sooner so that the general public could be warned and put on alert? Or perhaps, the better question; is it true that people no longer view Metropol as an honest or respectful organization, no longer capable pouring water out of a boot if there were instructions on the heel, let alone a search party? To be sure, they have yet to prove themselves in this matter. But, let this be a warning to the women of Nomos, especially those working in clubs and escort services, be aware and be safe. This time, danger truly might, lurk around every corner.

Police raid on Miners Mission, Cops BEAT a Defenseless Woman half to Death!!!

After weeks of getting robbed by bandits, Sister Judy called for help from the community and the police force to help get the crime rate reduced in our fair city, the only one to step up to help was Miss Gayle Sommers. Gayle told Sister Judy that she would stand by her and help where she could. Ms Sommers started spending time in the Miners Mission helping distressed miners and the homeless get a little peace and quiet time at the mission to help them recover from their extreemly hard work and lives, one would think she was doing her community, the Metrogen miners and Metropol a favor, up until just the other day anyway.......

It seems that the police were chasing some criminal through the streets and decided to conduct a raid on the Minors Mission, the police chief KR, walked in the Mission door and confronted Ms Sommers as she was manning the desk in the mission. as Miss Sommers was helping two Miners get bedded down and checking them for health problems at the time, the police officer insinuated himself between preventing further health care for the miners. stating that he was looking for a criminal.

Miss Sommers did not get in the way of the police but continued to help her charges get their rest, attempting to calm them and the policeman, as the following conversations show.

KR: "Ehem... i was going to conduct a search if thats alright with you." Miss Sommer: "well i believe you will only find weak miners here, they come here for their rest you know", "but go ahead if you must", smiles. "please try not to disturb their rest", smiles. KR: "Matters not, we want to secure of this establishment." he giggled, "Lets begin...." he looks left and right at each door. "Lets start with you". (indicating a room where one minor was laying recovering from an illness). Miss Sommer: "shes sick KR, leave her alone unless you want to arrest her". KR nods as officer TZ entered, "We are just looking for bad guys. You'll be thanking us for keeping this area safe..." he coughed, "Ms Sommers, when will you ever learn to trust Metropol? Dont you know its our job to protect the city?". Miss Sommer: "That is why i sit here, helping Sister Judy keep this place safe". KR: "Really?.. " he squinted his eyes, "And how do we know youre not working for these would be robbers?". Miss Sommers: "is this one of your men sir?" KR: "Yes indeed, our dazzling new recruit... he'd be happy to show you how we handle suspects." he sneered, "Are you one, Ms Sommers?". Miss Sommer looks back to KR and asks, "dont you get the videos from all the cctvs in the city?", if you checked them youll find i do not commit crimes". TZ: Good question Chief. Maybe a strip search is in order in case she's carrying any hidden... contraband. *looks Gayle up and down slowly with a grin*. Miss Sommer ignores the indecent remark of the junior officer. KR: "Oh we're not dumb enough to believe that easily.... perhaps we do need to conduct a search. Would you comply, Madame? It will only take a short while.....we promise.". Gayle Sommer looks at the officer and states calmy, "of course, in the presence of my attorny", "any time officer".

KR: "What would you say Ms Gayle Sommer. If I shoot this girl now and arrest you for it?". Miss Sommer sighs, "another slight on your record officer KR?". "officer KR, you are going to do as you will regardless of what i say". KR: "TZ, take Gayle into the shower room and search her for any drugs, weapons, or gadgets.... I think we're done asking nicely.". KR: "You gonna let her mock you like that?" he shouts at TZ. TZ: No Sir! *grabs gayle by the arm and drags her to the next room* Move it you!. TZ: That's right sister, against the wall there and spread em!!. Miss Sommer complies with the officers request. TZ: Yea, that's right, well you do seem to have some illegal curves here Ms Sommers. *chuckles dryly*. Miss Sommer ignores the officers lewed remarks. TZ: And what's this eh? This feels like some interesting contraband. *laughs with a rather wicked attitude*. Miss Sommer cries out in pain, "oh someone help me from this brute". Erin Novi barges through the door looking to KR "Where is Ms Sommers?". TZ: Shut it sister, youre dealing with Metropol now. TZ: Bah, nothing here. Miss Sommer faints and falls on the floor.

KR quickly ran to block the shower room door, grinning at Cassandra as he did. "She'll be out in a minute!". Erin Novi: and what is going on here? TZ: *grabs gayle by the arm to steady her and drags her back through the doors*. Miss Sommer whimpers as the officer kicks her again. KR: "Ah! There she is" he exclaimed, "Nicely done Officer...". TZ: Seems Ms Sommers slipped in the other room. TZ: *helps her up*. KR: "How terrible.." he muttered, "She must be fazed, the poor thing.." Erin Novi: WHAT is the meaning of all this, KR? KR: "Nothing Ms. Novi... absoloutely nothing! We were merely instructing her about authority. No harm done, aint that right Ms Sommers?" Miss Sommer: "is that you Erin?", through pain clenched teeth. Erin Novi: Yes, Gayle, it is. Are you alright? What did they do to you? Miss Sommer: "thank you for comming...." , cries out in pain as her brused and broken ribs start throbbing. Erin Novi: Gayle what happened? Lie still... Miss Sommer rolls over in pain, partially recovering her senses, :"they came in here all nice until they wanted to strip search me". Miss Sommer: "they gave no real reasons, just suspicions", then that brute dragged me in here and started beating me". KR: "Lies...all lies..." he yelled towards the door, "Officer TZ would never.." Miss Sommer faints from the pain. KR shouts: WHEWwwwww!. KR laughs, "Then they will die if you dont do something quick, Ms Novi. Its human nature to help those in need isnt it? " he raised an eyebrow, "Ms Sommers doesnt look too badly hurt, we should really keep this flooring dry next time." Erin Novi glances at the floor "odd how it doesn't appear to be even wet..."

(sounds as if officer KR was having fun)

20 minutes later the nurse arrives and tends to Miss Sommers injuries

Nurse Setsuko: okay that any better? we're going to need to get you to the hospital
Miss Summers was taken to Bedlam Hospital where the doctor looked her over with an xray machine
Miss Sommer in her unconsions state moans with pain. Nurse Setsuko looks over the scan "Hmm couple fractures, a lot of bruising to the rib area". Nurse Setsuko: It stings like a bitch I've no doubt but it's not so bad.. it'll heal up okay in a couple weeks.

Later Ms Sommers stated to this reporter. "Im sure ill have to lay up at my clans abode until i can get out and about again, the doctor has advised i take it easy for a couple weeks. i do hope the mission can do without me for a time, it is sure to be robbed again in my absense. and even worse i dont even know if i can make it to work daily from now till then, oh what will become of me?, will i become homeless and destitute at the pleasure of the police?"

The above information was collected from various sources and pieced together for your reading pleasure. Seems the police force wishes to keep the cctv footage out of the communitys hands and will not release any of it. With no arrests being made in the Minors Mission, this reporter wonders, just what were those two police officers doing there anyway.....

Miss Sommers was not armed, and did not posses any illegal drugs or gadgets, as stated by the police officer that beat her to find out this information. Ms Sommers did not resist or provide the police any reason for the rough treatment she had recieved. She attempted to comply with all demands of the police just to get beaten for complying. Is this what our community has come down to? Miss Sommers seems to be an active, willing to help, law abiding city resident, unlike some of our police officers she hasnt even a police record!

Miss Sommers still seems to be dazzed by the inappropriate police response and wonders if the evil rumours arent true about the police force of our fair city being above the law, and able to do anything they wish. Dont they have enough real criminals to chase?, they need to confront and assult law abiding citizens?, she asks. She does not believe she will be thanking Metropol for keeping her work area safe, as officer KR stated early in the conversation. "Ms Sommers, when will you ever learn to trust Metropol? Dont you know its our job to protect the city?", this statement by officer KR seems inappropate due to his, and his henchmans, resulting actions.

To date only the one junior officer has been charged with the crime of assulting Miss Sommer, Seems the other officer involved will get away scott free after browbeating his junior officer to "not be nice" to Miss Sommer.

This reporter wonders if metropol is not full of criminals, seems it definately is, at the very least these two. This reporter also hopes Miss Sommers heals soon and can get back to work as the productive honorable citizen of our fair city she has shown herself to be, we in this reporting office wish her well. We also have an office bet this "police crime" will be swept under a rug very soon........

Monster Mash

This Halloween came with it a multitude of crimes not listed or enforced by Metropol. We were robbed the sheer terror from finding something unexpected and unexplained trespassing in our rationalized front lawns. That necessary breach of our arrogance, that we were as omniscient of our surroundings as our maker. Forcing us to reel in our minds, updating reality by filling in the blanks and divining forms in the shadows. That bitter metallic taste of fear-synthesized saliva dripping in our mouths.

The zombies came in with a whimper of a ghost story we already knew. Newspapers in their due-diligence and civic duty broke a story not intended for the public. Who, what, where, when, why, and even how was documented in easy to read black and white, preparing the citizens for the future. Except that humans have evolved never knowing the future, built only to respond to the ever present dangers of the now.

We read, distributed, commented, wondered, and fiercely debated what was to unfold days prior to the event, and then we were done. Like the hangover after a night of binge drinking we didn’t want to be bothered by another sip. The news had robbed the new from the story, making it old before its time, with people casually cautioning their friends, “look out for zombies,” in-lieu of the primal screams that had succeeded in passing along critical information to societies long before fire. We were omniscient once again with no mysteries to solve, or forms lurking in the shadows.

As zombies walked, people went about their day. Crime never took a holiday and Metropol continued making arrests, while jurors sneered at the indecency of a zombie attempting to enter the courthouse. Nomos carried on, with the help of a few gung-ho crazies,giving the rest of us a reprieve while they held back the tide, happy to murder something and not only be absent of consequence, but be rewarded for their semi-latent homicidal tendencies.

By the next day, annoyance not fear, had driven most citizens indoors or off-world. The barren streets of Nomos looked exactly as the Metropol Chief announced the event, the Apocalypse. Undoubtedly furthering Metropol’s delusions of their self-righteous crusade, now complete with an army of darkness. With no more crime to enforce, they tried first to barricade themselves inside the church, with their occasional excursions into the chaos meeting limited success.

Huddled inside a compact space, like child’s instinct to pull the cozy covers over their head, to zombies they had to appear like delicious sardines. By the time I thought to scope the place out, I had to quickly back track as a zombie breached the doors infecting anyone in reach, which is to say, everybody in the church.

This immersion of despair was what I needed to eschew my final reservations. Breathing in some sort of burnt smelling dust that saturated the air, I struck out on my own to sample the sweet syrup of discord and take on the horns of the beast in my adrenaline induced high. Learning from the mistakes of the church, I chose a more mobile route, slipping through the tunnels. For all the talk that these zombies were abducted miners, they had difficulty navigating the subterranean paths.

Jumping out like some rabid gopher, I began popping off zombies one or two at a time, at times providing cover to thankless stranglers who happen to find themselves alone on a silver platter. After the first dozen kills, my predatory zeal kicked into full gear. A special glee grew across my face, like driving in an open cabin through a sandstorm. BANG, there went another zombie, a miner named Larry who sent his pay back home to his wife and three kids. BANG, there went Curly, who gave a fuck about him anyhow.

BANG, good bye Earl. Earl’s dead.

With each kill, Metrotek rewarded me for cleaning up their shit, but I’m not going to throw myself into Metrotek hate group. I’m sure Metrotek will give good cause in short time, but not now. Their only mistake was to pay us rather than charge us. These zombies weren't the sewage flowing out into the streets, but rather drug enriched blood that we’ve hungered for. Give us more brainless miners to slaughter. Give us a building to set a flame. Let us dance around with impish delight and we’ll ignore all the rest of crap shoveled on top of us. Add a few so-called zombie women for us to rape, and we may even tolerate Metropol.

I stumbled through my zombie hangover in a burger joint with one of the badly scrapped up Metropol officers, who reflected that this entire event was a test of our humanity. I would agree but for opposite reasons, though my proof needed more time and zombies to materialize. We’re all just three meals from complete anarchy. Seeing how Metropol handled mindless mobs, it would have been interesting to see them handle mobs with slightly higher intelligence, including some from their own ranks turning against them.

The zombies gone, barely touching our hunger, people bemoan without asking the right questions. Further supporting my prior characterizations. No one cared about the miners or Metrotek’s involvement. Only crying about why they were here at all, or those like myself who tasted the salt lick of frenzy, whether they were going to be more in the future.

By the time this article reaches publication, more miners will go missing. How many of them will wake up in some Metrotek biohazard lab? What other experiments will does Metrotek have in it’s program? What will go wrong next, and will we read about it first, or wake up to it chewing on our wife? At what point will miners become to valuable, and citizens or so-called criminals be tossed into the labyrinth?

I do ask those questions.

Metropol has no comment.
Meditek has no comment.
Psychotek has no comment.

They're Coming!

A Chief Caught Out

Nomos has its fair share of villians, but what would one do when the bad are bad and the good guys are even badder? Recent evidence has fallen into the hands of Street Life through an anonymous source indicating foul play from the head of MetroPol itself. The recording taken only days ago was taken on the source's phone revealing a very dark side to Chief Kurt Flanx [Keyran Ronwood]. 
The video shows the Chief in what appears to be a heated exchange of words with Officer Valeryie Larix [Phantom Weir] in the alleged theft of a trophy. The main concern of the conversation however is Chief Flanx's threat to kill the officer and open exclosure of past deaths that he is responsible for. 
Officer Katey Hutch [Katey Belwraith] was also present in the room being prompted to take part in the threats. The following transcript is a snippet of the exchange at hand;

Katey Hutch: Wh-what? Kill who?

Valeryie Larix: You really think you can.. kill me?

Chief Flanx: I've done it before... it's so easy actually. At least now there will be fewer to bare witness on how things are really done in MetroPol. So are you ready to die?

VL: Ready to die? You can kiss my [expletive]. I used to trust you Kurt... I protected you, and this is how you repay me?

CF: When I'm done with you, nobody in the force will find you. You will be completely gone. Sad isn't it? Such a beautiful thing you've become and now it's over.

The video continues with heated argument ending with a shot fired before losing transmission. An obviously defiant Ms Larix stands up to the threats of Chief Flanx, however it poses the question to the mental stability of MetroPol  in general. Has the Chief actually lost the plot? Or does it now bring about questions about who actually polices the police? Stay posted, Street Life surely will have more dirt to come.

Psychedelic Underground Re-Opens

The little neon shop at the bottom of the street ramp is pulsing with a new beat.  Lunesta Matova, of Tyr's Hand Clan has taken over management of the Psychedelic Underground and is busy dusting off the displays and stocking the shelves for your pleasure.  This is THE place to find off-the-wall clothing, posters, comics, accessories, DVDS and that rare cd you couldn't find anywhere else.   Don't let the bright neon lights and rocking beats fool you; they are not just another head shop.  The Psychedelic Underground is a mainstay in Nomos, and they reach into all aspects of life here.  It has been said that they peddle much more than just pop culture....

They claim to have the best and freshest ROOT in the city, and it is back in stock!  To celebrate the  re-opening, Lune Matova has slashed the price of root by almost 50%!  That's right, the Psychedelic Underground now offers ROOT at the rock-bottom price of G$12.  Might be worth checking out.

The Manager says that it's the place where dreams can made (and bought), and invites everyone to stop in and say 'hello'.

The Psychedelic Underground  also has job opportunities for DEALERS.  Come in and sign up.  What better place to work?

Genotek Exclusive - An Experiment Gone Pear Shaped

Investigations are underway into the mysterious slaying of four Genotek scientists last night. Autopsies released this morning uncovered all four had clean removal of their brains. A fifth scientists who survived the ordeal remains under heavy security at Bedlam facilities. Metropol detectives remain tight lipped on the situation refusing to make any comments on the events that led to the brutal murders.
"Listen lady, if you ever get a clearance through MetroTek in your lifetime then we'd only be obliged to hand you over a media statement.... but you don't, so sod off."
Charming as always....
Luck however seems to be on the side of Street Life when we recieved a phone call from the surviving scientist himself. the following transcript is a recording of the conversation;

StreetLife: Hello Street Life, you tell us we tell the world...
Scientist: Please i dont have much time. I am Dr [inaudible crackle] of Genotek. I must ensure Nomos is warned. the experiment, it went bad. Very very bad.
St: Oh boy are we glad to hear from you, we have a ton of questions
Sc: No. No time for questions. I will tell you straight. The miners. We've kept miners from sight. Years of experimentation have just gone down the drain with this final experiment.
St: Miners? Experiments? What have you done?
Sc: We were studying a strain of virus and its effects. It got too strong. We created an immunisation... but something went wrong. They got strong but they were getting hungry. They get hungrier and hungrier the more they feed. We managed to contain them for a while, but they broke free and killed everybody.
St: Not quite. You managed to survive.
Sc: Yes, i ran and fought off what i could. Metropol responded to the alarm and managed to fend them off into a vault. It wont hold them. The vaults only work on timers. We normally only use them to keep the replicants cool. After a certain amount of time the doors automatically open for an hour to let some air out. There is no way to reprogram it by the time the doors are set to reopen they will be hungry and devour anything that attempts to reshut that door.
St: Let me get this straight. You experimented on some missing miners and now, from what one can only assume through the state of your four dead scientists, they've become flesh hungry creatures with a taste for everybody. They're locked in a useless vault that wont hold them and anyone walking the streets of Nomos is potentially doomed if they come across one. Wow you guys have alot to answer to for this screw up
Sc: Yes yes and i have four scientists that are very sorry. Please warn Nomos. The residents need to be armed and prepared. They need to be stockpiled on medical supplies and food.
St: When are the vault doors set to reopen?
Sc: I am calculating this Sunday morning at an estimated time of 10am.
St: How many of these things are we looking at?
Sc: the number is too great to.... [a voice is heard in the background "What do you think you're doing doc?"] ....i need to go.

The phone goes dead.

Here is a glimpse of the terror walking the streets. Stay tuned for more...

"I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix." - Allen Ginsberg - Howl

Slaughter Zone picked up Halloween celebrations early this week with club owner Beast Theas declaring the festivities start. Patrons were invited to come dressed in their Halloween costumes and enjoy the eclectic mix of tunes with DJ Beast. A special appearance was also made by 'Uncle Fester', rumoured to be the diguise of alleged city hacker Kora Zenovka. The impressive costume change from Uncle Fester to Hermoine and then possibly to Axl Rose was the beginning of an entertaining night for all in attendance.

Club Alien kicked off the weekend for Nomos with a Lap Dance Competition. Club owner Void Seetan (pictured left) not only hosted the event but also was one of the DJ's playing a blend of UK garage and house tunes. A music change would later overcome the club with a DJ Doom (Equimanthorn Doomdale) set playing mostly Industrial Techno.  

The patrons were looked after with beverages from bartender Lune Matova (Pictured) as they were entertained by the sensual moves of dancers Baea Dragovar and the night's winner Raiva Feila.

Another Police Chase? Or a Call for Stronger Action.

The usual buzz that normally sounds through the Nomos streets was disturbed last week with MetroPol leading yet another police chase.
The criminal in question was repeat offender Renickor Dartmouth who approached Street Life with his side of the story.
"It all started when I saw an innocent civilian minding her own business and said 'Get on the fucking ground!'" he says "To my surprise she did what i said. Then I told her to give me 200g, she was about to do that too but MetroPol caught me."
What would lead from there would be a manhunt for Mr Dartmouth from one end of the city to the other. One could note a sense of excitement rather than remorse at his criminal history.
"Metropol started chasing me. I ran into a building and up a few flights of stairs" he says excitedly "I thought they were going to catch me until i saw a door that led onto the roof. I thought i had lost them until i noticed a police car chasing me. I jumped onto a smaller rooftop and climbed down to grab a bike and took it to the mars station where i hid there for five minutes. They followed and chased me back to Nomos where i was caught."
Mr Darthmouth was then arrested and charged, spending some time in the Metropol jail cells. The very next day on his release he was arrested again for committing the same crime. He was then taken to SS Newgate, a facility normally reserved for Nomos' harshest criminals. When asked whether his actions had taught him any lessons after such consequences he replied; "It's taught me one lesson... Be more careful," he says "plan your robberies out first. Adoram rexeito."  Which translates to Worship the Rejected.
Sergeant Derek Nkremos replied to Street Life on behalf of Metropol in response to Mr Dartmouth's behaviour.
"The best response I can give is this kid just doesn't know when to quit. He doesn't learn and obviously doesn't care about the consequences." he says, "I think he needs to learn that constantly stealing leads to bad consequences. Usually the results of such are less than favorable. I personally don't want to have to continue to bring him in for stealing from everyone."
It now brings about the question as to whether Metropol need to enforce harsher penalties or a different rehabilitation programe for such repeat offenders.
"Yes i would like more strict rehabilitation repeat offenders," says Sergeant Nkremos "But that costs money. Who knows if we'll get to implement that."
A loan from Renickor Dartmouth perhaps?

The Cost of Justice

Recent crime initiatives in Nomos have undoubtedly resulted in a significant Metropol presence; a delight to many business owners feeling sheered by the constant robbery. However some are beginning to doubt if these recent changes are have any impact on crime. Some club owners are even reporting that crime has gone up.

“Sure there’s more cops around, the problem isn’t arrests, but the punishment,” says one such owner who doesn’t wish to be identified. She, and others like her, feel that criminals are still just getting a slap on the wrist, but now with theatrical garnish.

While others are asking for their money back, saying that ultimately they are the punished and carry the burden of the justice system. “The Cops get the fine money, the Lawyers get a cut, and the Crooks still get to keep a fraction of their gains. Everyone’s getting their hands on money from our tills except us.”

A Metropol officer did offer a bit of advice before walking off, “It’s not our fault. They can just empty their own tills.” It’s flippant attitudes like this toward the problem, that make even some whisper conspiracy theories that Metropol no longer operates for Metrotek, but is instead in cahoots with the zaibatsu.

Though Metropol is not the only avenue for the business owners to recover their losses. Several restaurant and sushi bar owners are currently negotiating an hike in prices on food and drink across the board. These businesses most hit by the constant thievery as their money doesn’t come from scheduled events that they can cash out afterwards, but rather receive a trickle of income round the clock.

It seems that ultimately, the cost of justice gets passed down to you. Perhaps it’s time to find out what Metropol is doing with the fines they collect.

Breaking News: What's Next For Universal Flow ?

It is a sad day in Nomos, Universal Flow as relinquished his ownership of Club Industry. The powerful business tycoon was the longest running and most successful club owner Nomos has ever seen. He was quote, off the record, by a confidential source as saying "It will definitely be a major transition, I will have to adapt and evolve into a new life now and I am not quite sure what this adjustment phase will consist of or how the end result will look". From the sounds of it Mr. Flow will be doing some self-reflecting and soul searching. The source also said Universal's behavior seemed to be erratic and confused, which many know is unlike his generally calm and cool demeanor. One thing is for certain, he will now have plenty of time to shake the cobb webs of apparent shock, re-boot his mental faculties and re-engineer his life.

Terror On The Streets Of Nomos By Aleena Jaynesford

Life has been hard for the Metropol Police Department lately. The question is why? Well it would seem due to recent events, the gangs of Nomos have been rising against the Metropol officer. Is it a struggle of hate, a struggle of confusion? It is tough to say, but the danger has been very real. I spoke recently with a Metropol Officer, and this was the course of the interview:

"I'm Aleena Jaynesford here with Officer Foehammer, Officer, how do you feel about this recent crime spree going on in Nomos? What has Metropool done to offer the citizens safety against these gangs?"

Keaton Foehammer: "Actually Aleena...the violence has been directed specifically at MPD so far...citizens are only in danger if there is crossfire, and unfortunately there is not much that can be done to reduce the amount of gunfire....if they shoot, we have to shoot back."

Aleena Jaynesford: "Understood Officer, what measures are the Metropol Task Forces doing about these rampant attacks on officers?"

Keaton Foehammer:  "We hit the streets in force. Let the gangs know who's in charge. We're not going to back down. We have better training, better gear and more resources. Waging a war on MPD is an exercise in futility, and will only leave you in ruin"

Aleena Jaynesford: "And officer, one last question, how many casualties has both sides suffered from all this violence?" 

Keaton Foehammer: Casualties...well, with modern medicine, and the robust qualities of some of the races here on Nomos, there's been speculation of 1 fatality. But I'm not at liberty to discuss who.

Aleena Jaynesford: "And there you have it, crime will be dealt with in Nomos, and Metropol is ready to defend the streets, no matter what. Aleena Jaynesford, Metrotek Actions News"

It is comforting to hear of only one casualty, but there is much more on the horizon. This very same night I was a witness to the violence first hand. A man called out to the Police Station screaming of a murder committed at the hands of Metropol, and there was nearly a fight. The man was prepared to kill for whatever happened. It was unclear to this reporter who or what had happened, and the man disappeared before I could interview him. I did catch a last part though, as the man walked away.

"What the hell happened to you? You used to be one of us man" was all the large stocky biker said to the shirtless cop outside of Metropol station. 

It was a scary night and much transpires here in Nomos. Is it safe to be on the streets? I say no, not until these two sides come to an agreement. Be safe out there Nomos Citizens, for a war wages on the very streets you live on.

CAGED IN: Vampires vs Shifters @ Skyway Arena, Sunday OCT 3, 12pm

Skyway Arena presents Caged In- Vampires vs Shifters

Say we interbreed 'Caged In' with an 'Unleashed' and throw a vampire in for good measure. 
Skyway brings to you an ancient battle that will only see one winner on Sunday October 3, 12pm SLT. Whether one believes the myth or not, we're bound to bring you a great show.

First Prize; 2000G
Melee weapons
Shifters fighting in lycan form is not compulsory 

Just for fun, lets test out some of these new weapons. Skyway will host an all in brawl after the vamp v shifter tourney for anyone wishing to participate.
First Prize; 1000G

Side note for MetroTek; Any fighter which partakes in the day's event obviously runs the risk of becoming target to MetroPol law enforcement. Participants on this day are therefore under the protection of Skyway management and any trigger happy MetroPol officer will find themselves promptly removed.... or in a cage alone with ten shifters.

2pm SLT Afterparty @ the Naked Lunch
The Naked Lunch will host a party celebrating whichever winner prevails.

Dr. Cabby's Science Report:

What's that glowing, stinky silver around Dr. Cabby's neck, and why does he smell like Garlic?

Tellurium (TE on the periodic table) is a silvery metallic substance.

While enduring great personal risks to my safety, I've discovered refinable traces of a rare element called Tellurium collecting near the drainage grates throughout Nomos waste water system. Of course, this is also where the virus infected Rats of Nomos tend to gather. So if you've seen me running about the city without stopping to say "hi" and chat, it's because I'm being chased by a rat with no sense of humor.

Tellurium is hardly ever used in pure form, but these beautiful slender crystals are how it is distributed. Research is hindered by the fact that if you absorb even tiny amounts, you smell of garlic for months. While it is generally an agreed upon fact that Vampires find the smell of Garlic repulsive, so do many humans. So out of necessity, I have managed to alter the molecular structure of this element so that it's pungent garlic odor will only last while the pendant is being worn about the neck. Since the neck is where the less civil and polite of our sanguine connoisseurs would target, I reasoned a choker style pendant would be the most effective placement for maximum results.

**Caution** Results may vary:
While the Vampires of Nomos are not subject to many of the ancient earth alchemical potions such as religious relics and Holy Water, preliminary research reveals that Garlic causes a reaction similiar to a chemical burn, and they find the odor intolerable. However, some Vampires have a higher tolerance and may not even react to the substance until several minutes of exposure have elapsed, while others show no reaction to the substance at all. In laymen's terms... it depends on the Vampire.

Also, please exercise restraint when wearing this pendant. The Nomos Vampires are valuable, cherished members of our community. This pendent should only be worn around those who choose to behave in an uncivil or threatening manner.

Nomos citizens desiring their own Tellurium vampire repellant pendants should contact me directly. The cost is G$100 for the general public.
Members of Metropol and the scientific research community may obtain a free pendant to aid in their scientific research.

This is a pendant which you can wear, but it is not linked with SGS or with any part of NOMOS or KOS. It is for RP only. Nobody is obligated to even acknowledge you have it on. So if you want to use it IC, talk with your vampire friends about it OOC first.

Jury Duty Calls Citizens to Court the Law, While Pets Run Amok!

Justice might be blind, but now the eyes of the law have turned to the citizens themselves to decide the fate of Nomos’ most wanted criminals. Randomly selected jurors will be required to appear at court to listen to testimony, then give their verdict.

With the rise in crime, many of the hard working citizens praise the system, but grumble at the prospect of going to court. Be there or the long arm of the law will fine you for not doing your civic duty!

In other news! Due to the food shortages in Nomos Mammals without owners have resorted to random attacks on citizens to feed their hunger. Remember to lock your doors and keep an eye out for pets that need to be retrained at the pound!

Citizens Groan as Inflation Soars, While Skilled Workers Profit

Layoffs at MetroTek delivery services have impacted local businesses and inventories are at bare minimums due to reduced supply services. Increased demand and low supply have caused prices to soar in the last few weeks as citizens scramble to make ends meet.

Business owners throughout Nomos are actively seeking skilled workers to help meet demand in an attempt to make the most of the supplies they do receive. In an interview with a local food services manager, the reporter learned that higher-skilled workers help businesses reduce wasteful practices. “There is more I can offer our customers and that will help keep prices lower.” said one of the Sushi Shack owners. In an effort to attract employees some are offering profit sharing incentives.

In other news! Rumors that GenoTek waiting lists have grown for cybernetic enhancements from citizens tired of dumpster diving for food scraps. Rat-be-gone! Plug in now, and feel the power!
