The new East River Civic Center and its groundbreaking gender neutral bathroom

Completing phase 12 of an ambitious 60 part plan, the East River has centralized itself in the hamlet of Grizedale (link), transforming the suburban area to an administrative hub for one of the world’s largest economies. Ringed around a new ERC Civic Center, Grizedale now has a post office, businesses, and
essential services under construction.

“Governor Chia has really caught on to somethin’,” said one construction foreperson we spoke to. “She’s got all these admin buildings and services right here – real central like. Cops, firepeople, and everyone can go straight from here to anywhere in the ERC, and everybody files papers here. It’s a good thing.”

The Grizedale phase is just one part of the overall project which includes a new GTFO port and augmented airport in Pippen, more artist studios in Hellevelyn, and new factories for Feral Marine.

“‘Think big’ is the motto of the Feral Corporation,” explained ERC Legal council. “That is how they’ve stayed so powerful while West River imploded.”

The plan has wide support from the community, and Waterbank citizens have donated hours of community service to support the changes. At the same time that people are excited about the increase of trade, some residents are concerned that things are being pushed by catnip money and that the East River might turn into a criminal haven.

“This isn’t Bay Cities,” said an East River policeperson we asked. “This may be one of the few places where catnip is legal, but we have an active community that can handle what comes. Fire, police, port authority, hospital, even some commando units. People shouldn’t worry about it.”

“I have to admit,” said the intern at Grace Development Agency, “that I was hoping that they would bring back the gambling catnip paddleboats of yesteryear to East River. Top hats, and grass flecked noses – those were the days.”

The East River Chamber of Commerce called an emergency session after a Two Tangos helicopter was unable to land at ERIA.

“There was a dinosaur on the pad,” complained the pilot. “We were carrying a VIP, and this dino’s laying eggs!”

The incident was one of several events recently that are affecting citizens in the area.

“We’re waiting to see how Governor Chia will weigh in on the issue,” said one council member.

The Sheriff’s Department made a night landing at the East River Villages (Grizedale Village) after guards complained of “too many people shopping for property.”

Several key lots have opened up in the East River recently and there is a crush to see what’s open.

“People can talk to Governor Chia (also of Feral Marine),” said one real estate agent, “and find out what kind of deal they can make. East River is hot. A serious community that believes in the good life.”

Feral Marine, the largest of the Feral companies, has won another competitive bid, this time from the SLMC. Feral will now be supplying the military elite group with their RB-L and the Prowler (link), and has options for the new Lynx when it finishes testing.

“We’re excited about this partnership,” said a spokesperson, “Feral has a strong presence in the rescue and interdiction boat market, and is battle tested. We look forward to doing more together.”

A new ship pulled into the Feral Marine main store docks today, surprising the sales staff. “We had no clue it was arriving, but there it was with the logo and everything,” one sales staff said.

The sales staff was further surprised when the crew, all dressed in military gear disembarked from the boat and calmly walked up the hill to the airport, where they boarded a C-130 with no markings and departed.

The mystery boat is still sitting at the Feral Main Store, and sales staff have told us that when they contacted the CEO, Volchia Ferduccio, she told them to “ignore it.”

The boat, believed to be Project Ripper, is rumored to be in sea trials and weapons system development. Rez Gray, the developer behind GridTalkie has been seen doing some work onboard. But he would not say a word to reporters or anyone else. Ammunition, weapons, and fuel have all been seen by the sales staff being loaded onboard.

“It’s kinda freaking me out, all this secrecy,” said one sales staff member.

The plans taken by New Year’s heist thieves is code named “Ripper,” a new product in development by Feral Marine.

Lawyers are descending on Waterbank News as the secret documents that were allegedly stolen in the New Year’s heist have come to light.

“We found this roll of blueprints and printouts on a body in Blackslough,” an ERIA PD officer told us. “It looked like some kind of new patrol ship. While we were dealing with the body, the plans were yoinked from the hood of our car.”

The new thief was chased into the mountains behind East River Intercontinental Airport and escaped. They were later caught by a mounted patrol near the peak.

“I heard this ridiculous evil laughter and thought I had better check it out,” said the Sheriff’s Department deputy on patrol that day. “The guy was laughing like a fool until I arrested him and took the plans. The guys at the station nicknamed him ‘Mopey’ after that.”

The plans were then placed on the front desk of the Sheriff’s office in Pippen, where they were yoinked again. That, dear readers, is how you see them here.
