End of an Era

After many years of faithful service, the train to station city is now out of commission. The station city council has finally run out of spare parts to keep it running. Maintenance has always been a challenge, since the ubiquitous nanites keep eating techonology. The train attracted much less attention than the aircraft that some dreamed of building on Eclipse, but there has been a rate of breakdown common to the harshest of planetary conditions. And the more advanced technology has been subject to even greater degradation. Which meant that the old fashioned train just kept running. Occasional gunfire and marauder attacks have also taken their toll. Going down the Marauder Rail road is now the only consistent contact with the outside world, and no convoy has been that way in several months. Ever since the last one was attacked by marauders. Still, the folks in Station City have thrived in isolation from the rest of Eclipse. It’s sometimes called the forgotten settlement, but they have survived through years of war, and a constant threat of marauders, so they must be doing something right.

Heroic Rescue in Gatetown

A Gate Town response team rescued a convoy of Free Szgany from Szgany soldiers acting on the orders of Prince Arioch after their convoy was caught in a deadly ambush on the Old Road. Witnesses report that the soldiers were forcing the Free Szgany to partake in a religious ritual of Dyzan called “the Sacrament” by drinking a chemical concoction that binds the Szgany to their Lords. A young woman of the Free Szgany, who wished to remain unnamed, managed to slip free of the ambush and make her way to Gate Town for aid. A response team was quickly formed to free the convoy and escort it to safety. Reached for commentary, Baron Elijah Morgan Kell was quick to compliment the response, saying “I am always amazed how the people of Gate Town, really all of the colonists on Eclipse, will rally so quickly to defend others, as if we are all one people.”
