Adherents of Unity Strike Again, Now Officially Arcane Terrorists
Two days ago contact was lost with the small settlement on ‘The Screaming Moon’. CPG sent a team to investigate the loss of contact when conventional and supernatural means were unable to reach anyone on the moon. Details are scarce, but CPG has confirmed that the settlement on the moon was attacked by terrorists believed to belong to the Adherents of Unity. The team found no survivors, but not everyone has been accounted for.
CPG has now officially classified the Adherents of Unity as Arcane Terrorists due to their use of supernatural abilities to enact acts of terrorism. There is a reward for 10,000 credits for any information that leads to the capture of a member of the group. Officials from Epsilon Division, CPG’s supernatural investigations unit, would only confirm that the terrorist group did use supernatural means to attack the moon, but would not say what kind. They urged anyone how sees one of these terrorists to stay away and contact authorities.
A spokeswoman from the Celestial Empire stated “Today marks a new era in the Celestial Empire. Gone are the days of exclusion, gone are the days of seclusion. We welcome any planet, station, moon or any other group of people that wish to join us. Tashet felt that the safety and increases to quality of life we could provide were well worth the temporary inconveniences of leaving the Coalition of Planetary Governments. As I’m sure many others do as well, should you see the benefits of our protection and guidance we would be glad to welcome you into the Empire.”

Blood Slaver Threat Solved?
While initial reports coming from CPG Strategic Command were cautious as to the long term reduction in Blood Slaver activity due to the successful raid, it has now been released that there have been no reported Blood Slaver attacks since the raid started. Sources in the Vampire Nation indicate that they believe the Blood Slavers, lacking the support of the Vampire Nation have fled beyond the limits of Vampire Nation space. General Merad of the CPG Supernatural Division, Episilon, was skeptical. “The raid went off just as we planned, but I doubt this is the last we’ve seen of the Suckers. They are probably regrouping and planning their next move. We are in the process of tracking them down and finishing this off once and for all.”
Sky Clans Behind Anderson’s Landing Attack
Contact was lost with Anderson’s Landing over three weeks ago. When the investigation team arrived there they gave a brief report of the settlement being abandoned, but were not heard from again. Sources close to the Military say that the first team is believed to be lost, their ship destroyed by the Sky Clans. A second investigation team was sent with a large military escort, however when they arrived there was little to find. Until now CPG had been very tight lipped about any results the second team had found. We now know why, clearly they wanted to be 100% sure before they risked starting a war with The Sky Clans.
