Fourteen Lottery Systems Under Investigation

Vyrelius Corellian, The Galaxy Today

Fourteen lottery systems in Citadel Space have been temporarily shut down pending multiple suspected racketeering investigations by core Gaming Control Officials from each affected governmental state. The shutdown was initiated following multiple simultaneous drawings with the same repeated pattern.

The number sequence “4615367” has been identified as showing up in over thirty regional, national, and planetary lottery drawings, most notably the Hyetiana Republic Ultrafish and Kentucky State Lotteries, whose jackpots had recently breached the 100,000-credit level. Identified offenders without seven-digit systems featured the sequence either truncated or repeated as necessary to preserve the pattern.

“It’s brazen,” said Lucas Merryweather, a representative for the Kentucky State Lottery & Gaming Control Commission. “The sheer amount of coordinated manpower needed to influence drawings on such a galactic scale is, well, frankly both astronomical and astronomically insane, given that we’d have to shut them all down afterward. One’s left to wonder whether this simply a scam or a veiled statement of intent.”

Early speculation that the simultaneous drawings were a coincidence have been scornfully dismissed.

“It’s patently absurd, even beyond the usual lottomania,” said Hennik Kylm, a statistical mathematician of Irune’s Hablin Nom Neurology Institute. “The chances of something like this happening by chance…well, it’s like statistical mechanics, you could see the heat death of the universe sixty times over before it happened.”

Players with winning numbers in the affected regions have been requested to retain their receipts until the matter has been fully investigated.

Avoiding this heat, shade running up at elevation!

07/24/2010 - Breakthrough in Ora Thubb Murder Case Announced

Law officers on Irune announced a breakthrough in the case of deceased inventor Ora Thubb today. Three Turian men — two dead and one alive — were dropped off at a police station along with personal digital assistants containing evidence about planning Thubb’s murder. The police are crediting Spectre involvement with bringing the investigation so far forward. Major Loz Atad says two turian Spectres handed the alleged criminals in, making it clear they had been pulled off of Taetrus to solve this problem. “The message was unmistakable,” he said. “Turians and volus are partners.”

[Environment] Frost-Bellied Dawnstalker Declared Extinct

Jentudin, Con Dannis Territories, Irune.

For thousands of years, it was the globally recognized symbol of the Unshaken City. Today, it’s a statistic. As of this morning, the Frost-Bellied Dawnstalker is officially declared extinct.

“It’s the sort of news that gives you pause” said Fen Casglag, local relief worker. “When you’re building on the graves of clan, it doesn’t seem like a big deal. Then you remember the atlas you read as a first-rotation schoolchild, the Dawnstalker on the TriClan flag. You remember what’s depicted on the covers of the lawbooks retrieved from public museums. And just like that a part of Jentudin is gone and it isn’t coming back”.

The ground-dwelling animal known as the Dawnstalker, noted for its striking coloration and dignified pose, was indigenous to a small region proximate to the city, a region left devastated by Reaper weaponry during the occupation of Irune. While a dedicated population of pilgrims, refugees and ex-pats continue to rebuild the City that Never Fell, the surrounding environment has been deemed unsalvageable, its unique fauna and flora gone for good - and with it one of Jentudin’s defining cultural symbols.

“They’re adding species to the list every day”, said Rexis Autarion, leader of the Protectorate taskforce charged with overseeing the environmental reclamation of the volus homeworld. “This one received a bit of notice, because we’ve all seen its image on a seal or a banner. Most of the others are simply forgotten”.

One determined woman seeks to turn this grim catalog into a true memorial. Former Lecturer in Life Sciences at the University of Bem Ven Evess, later esteemed writer, Professor Kip Anyew has announced her latest and most ambitious project. “A Thousand Precious Jewels” is to be a compilation of images, factual articles and first-person narratives focused on the many Irunian species lost to the invasion and its aftermath.

“Most people are simply glad that ‘volus’ isn’t on the list, and leave it at that”, she noted on TwoEyesOpen, the reconstituted professional networking site on which she enjoys a considerable following. “Every species has a story. Every species had to earn its place through the process of natural selection, seizing an open niche and holding it through a thousand complications. Every species represents an epic we may never fully comprehend. Some of them were lucky enough to have their stories made, however briefly, part of our own. We all know the Dawnstalker and can mourn the loss. But every one of these species deserves a chance to have their stories preserved”.

For the new population of Jentudin, the loss of the Frost-Bellied Dawnstalker is far more than another entry on a list. Said local religious leader Cos Nemedu: “The people of the Unshaken City lived in accordance with the laws of balance and respect for nature. They left certain lands undeveloped to preserve the natural order, in thanks for the resources they took from further afield. It isn’t merely the city that has lost an enduring symbol. Something eternally Vol has died here”.

“All stories end” says Kip Anyew, “But no species deserves to have its story cut short. The people who lived in proximity to the Dawnstalker understood this. The Reapers, to no-one’s surprise, did not”.

07/19/2010 - Inventor of Eupulmos Respiratory Aid Goes Missing

A suspicious disappearance on Irune has provoked outrage in the Vol Protectorate as Ora Thubb, the inventor of the Eupulmos respiratory aid, has gone missing. The volus inventor made news recently by demanding payment for his design, which is in heavy use by the colonialist army on Taetrus. Ambassador Din Korlack says the Protectorate wants to believe the best of their turian allies, but added, “as the Earth-clan say, this doesn’t pass the smell test.” Local law enforcement officers on Irune say their leads are promising, but the disappearance is straining relations between the two species’ embassies on the Citadel. This is of great concern to the Taetrus war effort. According to one report, volus-owned companies have supplied more than 60 billion credits of material to colonialist forces, about 45% of the war’s public cost so far.

The Big Tipper (first half)

Aethyta wandered into Eternity seeking to speak with Fern Gnor. The Grand Matriarch and Jamaya had told her before they went on their winter vacation at Elasa that the asari Matriarchy was launching an investigation into Nassana Dantius and that they’d expect the funding from Matriarch North to dwindle if not be completely cut off. Aethyta would have to find other ways to make up the difference, a large difference at that. Her fleet was growing, seven ships if counting the Benezia, and the plan was to acquire at least five times that.

Aethyta hated dealing with politics though she was certain that she could handle Matriarch South. While Aethyta was no stranger at making political deals in the past, on many occasions, it involved head butting to get what she wanted, but using sex wasn’t beyond her station. A good lay was a good lay. Aethyta was never in the habit of turning down a no-strings attached “embrace eternity”, she wasn’t going to start now, especially when she must do it for the greater good. If that was what it took to keep Matriarch South’s bank account open to the Tuchanka Project, so be it. But short of sniping Matriarch North, Aethyta had no answer for that old crow. Better just let Malayne and Jamaya deal with her, Aethyta had decided.

Preparing for the shortcomings in funding, Fern Gnor had come up with the idea of getting his mother’s backing. A matriarch in a non-matriarchal society, Fern’s mother was the leader of his clan and his clan was one of the five major powers on Irune, controlling a large portion of galaxy’s credit flow.

“You think we can get her support?” Aethyta asked as she watched Fern open up a chest and present her with a white and blue suit of light armor and helmet for her to wear on Irune.

“Only one way to do that.” Fern was excited when Aethyta called with a financial challenge. This was his territory and he knew exactly how to solve the problem.

“And what’s that? Charm her, bribe her with credits…”

“No, never mention the word ‘credits’ in front of mother, she thinks it’s vulgar. Instead use words like 'health’ or 'weather’.” At the mention of Fern’s mother, the volus tensed up and started talking faster.

“A volus who uses euphemism for money, this I gotta see!” Aethyta amused. “So we can’t ask her for credits, how do we get her support then?”

“We must win the winter games!” Fern cheered up again at the idea.

“What winter games?” In all of her years, Aethyta had never visited Irune. There was no mountain so high or ocean so deep to make her want to spend her holidays in a suit and breathe recycled air within her own suit for the entire duration. No, sir. She’d rather bask in the hot sun of Tuchanka or at least sit on the beach somewhere on Thessia.

“We hold winter games on Irune, and all clans are invited to compete. The winner’s clan gets all the investments from the rest of the clans. Credits are only worth anything if you control majority of them. This is how we determine whose businesses we all invest in. I’ll win the games for you! And your money will return at least 5 fold.”

“Fern, this isn’t one of your little schemes to get me to go to bed with you, is it?”

“I wish. We don’t mate in the winter and it’s in the middle of the winter on Irune right now. First we feast then we play the games.” Just as surely as a young man’s thought turned to love in the spring, a young volus’s thoughts, or rather the thoughts of a male volus of any age, turned to profit in the winter, or more specifically, how to turn bigger profits.
