Crime Blotter

The East River Police and the Sheriff’s Department are looking into a video found on a mangled body in the woods only a few miles from the Feral Marine compound. On the body a video camera with a damaged cartridge was found.

“The body was found gnawed and mangled,” said a Sheriff’s Deputy, “and it really looks like something the beast would do. We’re advising residents to stay close to home and avoid the hiking trails for the moment.”

The video (link), purchased by Waterbank News, shows a new boat from Feral Marine, and appears to have been cut to promote the new luxury liner. Conspiracy theorists in East River have already suggested that the death was in fact a homicide made to look like the beast had done it.

“Feral’s very secretive,” said a Feral Marine worker off record. “This wouldn’t be the first person something strange happened to.”

East River Police say that they are looking into all possible leads.

Recent reports of a “beast-like creature” in the mountainous area behind East River’s major airport, ERIA has sent the Sheriff’s Department into the hills.

“There are plenty of trails and open land there,” said a spokeswoman for the Department. “Our drones get shot down by the residents, so we’ve taken to mounted patrols. As yet there haven’t been any reason to believe the beast is back.”

“Don’t believe a word they say,” said a mountain man on Mt. Montezuma, “they ain’t seen the crazy beast like I have.”

Combat divers have discovered the wreck of the Castelia, a freighter that was believed to be carrying royalty when it went down.

“This is an unbelievable find,” said Waterbank historian Sketch Sun. “The Castelia could give us answers on what happened to the Tulagi chieftain, the last remaining Duke of Archer, and what their involvement with the Claw was.”

The Castelia, one of thousands of freighters that brave the Tulagi waters, was believed to have been sunk by a submarine, and there were no survivors. Divers and combat historians can see the wreck at this link (link).

One of many ports and airfields in the Greater Tulagi Region

Adventure travelers will be happy to know that there are plenty of themed sites for combat (VICE), and that some of them are large enough to allow for complicated play.

First on the list is 1940s themed Tulagi region. We’ve spend a bit of time on the large area, so if WWII aerial or naval combat is your thing, check out our other posts (link) or start at Archerfield Field (link) or the hub, Tulagi (link).

No 2 is the Binh Dinh sim chain, a five sim themed combat region for the Indochina Region (1968 to 1973). It is RP and VICE combat, and Binh Dinh (link) deliberately immersive. That means that if you just want to shoot things you’ll want a different site. There is a well written notecard quoted after the jump.

Number 3 on our list is Wonson, a North Korean VICE combat region including Serena Coco Bay (link). According to the owners, “Wonsan is a port city in Kangwŏn Province, North Korea, along the eastern side of the Korean Peninsula, on the East Sea and the provincial capital. The port was opened by occupying Japanese forces in 1880. VICE combat, sea, air, and urban warfare.”

Number 4 on the list is SSOC (Windhill City), which is technically an ECS combat location, though VICE has been used in the modern urban environment. We’ve spent some time on this location too (link).
