The Picture of the Week came to us in a nondescript paper envelope, and shows a solitary Claw pilot wandering a red light district in what appears to be Vila Mimosa (link). No other info was included.
WIA took this picture of a Claw fighter flying over the Blake Sea and made the following comment:
“Since FI paints made it easy, everybody can cause a ruckus.”
In a closed session of the Waterbank Commons, the reclusive Mayor of Waterbank gave an epic and long speech of three and a half hours to promote the formation of a new international body, the United City-States. Representatives were so impressed by the speech that they voted 50 to 3 in favor.
“Waterbank has always been a leader in the world,” said one rep outside the Commons. “We need a new organization that brings the city-states together.”
Yet not everyone was happy with the proposal, including student groups opposed to Waterbank getting involved in global affairs. Protests broke out in several coffee shops and all over social media.
“This is the kind of *&$% that got us into the Undine Conflict,” said an undergrad at Waterbank University. “I mean like, what up?”
Formation of the organization began immediately after the approval, and a spokesperson for the WIA said they would be working with several city-states to develop a unified body. “We have our short list and long list,” they said, “and the Claw won’t be on them.”
The Coastal Patrol is stepping up patrols in the Greater Tulagi Area, responding to increased Claw activities and a “nasty rumor.”
“I hear they’re trying to sink all the rum boats,” cried one CP pilot at Archerfield.
“It’s simply not true,” said a rep from the Claw. “The rum boats are ours.”
LANCE Combat enabled airfields include Tulagi, Jadu, Subak, Hyojong, Spurness, and Xilted. Claw planes have been spotted at Hawkside (link).
A meeting of the Seaplane Enthusiasts Association at the Linden Chalet has brought together some unusual enthusiasts together.
“I looked up,” said the receptionist Bill, “and there was this bearded wild man with a Claw patch and a bear hat. I was at a loss so I just said ‘name?’ Then he said ‘Cooper, from Claw.”
Other guests, which included ZoraSlade Karu (link) and Joe Sparrow of Astral-Tek were amazed at the man.
“We had wine and cheese, and talked about the Fairey seaplane (link),” said Astral Tek’s Adrian Faulkwing. “It was a bit surreal. He kept on and on about how more seaplanes needed torpedos like the Fairey.”
