News today about the continuing disputes between two clans of the Yazata. The Spores have announced they are resuming genetic testing on important members of their party. “It is vital to know that no more incidents will be occurring, where genetically incompatible citizens are allowed into positions of trust.” This refers to the story of Philo Milantha aka Philo Junaina, a Weed who presented himself as a Spore, and then became a key leader within the party. For those less familiar with Yazata politics, there are three clans of Yazata, from different geographical regions. They are also political parties which compete for votes. The Weeds fell out of favor on Eclipse, and many have quietly joined the other two parties. Philo was found in a compromising position with ambassadors and assistants from three other unnamed settlements, at the same time. The increased attention brought to light certain questionable financial decisions, and genetic testing revealed that he was actually a Weed. Outbreaks of fighting between Yazata of the 2 parties continued into their fourth day, and an anti-Weed rally has been announced.

The Nasu have also announced that they are petitioning to be named as a protectorate of Atlantis. This is unprecedented in recent Atlantean history, and yet another first on a planet of new things. The Atlanteans have made no official comment about the petition, although there is said to be great interest in the motion. The recent attack on the King of Atlantis was foiled, and the King is healthy and unharmed. The life of his advisor was saved by the quick-thinking actions of nearby Nasu, one of them a resident of the new settlement. The Memnonides, some of the protectors of Atlantis, have announced that they are offering aid and protection to the new settlement. Some have already traveled there, and will protect the settlement against High Asgardians and outside threats, at least until the issue of the petition has been decided. Well I say welcome to Eclipse, Omanganva. This is […]
