Rumors that a property in Whitlow (link) is actually a Claw Base, has led the Coastal Patrol to ask military or SAS factions to raid the property.

“We think the Claw has been using the property to shell shipping in the Tulagi region,” said the CP spokesperson, “and that they may be bringing ordinance in for their subs too.”

The owner of the property says that whoever the tenant really is, they always pay on time, but “if ya gotta raid, raid ‘em!” He also said that the property, a Tulagi combat area adjacent lot of 512 is also up for sale.

A Coastal Patrol unit conducted an air-to-air raid on a mysterious blimp over Dutch Harbor today, only to discover it was one of the mysterious projects from Analyse Dean’s secret workshop.

“The thing was hovering over Dutch and we just thought it was so unusual,” said a CP member. “Once we figured out it was hers we put everything back where we found it.”

The wreck of a Coastal Patrol helicopter was found in an East River tributary last week by a diver.

“I saw the metal reflection and when I got closer I nearly yakked,” said the diver who found it. “The pilot was still in it, and when I swam away – let’s just say super gross.”

The crash is being investigated for foul play, though it may have been pilot error.

“There were 12 cans of soda in the cabin, and it looks like he was trying to use one,” said CP investigator. “I’m not sure we can blame the Claw for this.”

The CP vessel docked at the infamous Bygone Church in the Honahs. The church was the sight of a massacre during the fight for independence of the island.

The Coastal Patrol has sent out a “good will” vessel to assure residents of Blake Sea islands that the CP is still committed to stopping the illegal sand trade. The vessel, a newly acquired MLB from Feral Marine, is the pride of the CP fleet.

“Oh, yeah, but it ain’t the cup holders,” explained one of the ship’s crew. “It’s a beauty on the seas, at speed and in the bunk. It’s da first boat I been on dat kept me dry.”

Coastal Patrol insiders say that the good will tour is having mixed results, depending on where they land. “Some places don’t want to talk about where the sand comes from.”

The epic manhunt continues for the New Year’s criminals and several agencies are working overtime to hunt for at least eight individuals.

“We believe they split up to confuse us,” said the Helvellyn’s Chief of Police in a press conference. “But we will not be confused. We are on a path and will not leave it.”

Several reporters snickered at the Chief, who seems to be single-mindedly pursuing the belief that the suspects escaped using a third boat. He has even gone so far as to ask for help from the Coastal Patrol, who left their usual drinking establishments to “skim the water.”

“We can stomp in water or sky,” hiccuped one CP pilot, “we’ll nab those pesky Claw runaways!”

Corrected that there was no connection to the Claw, the pilot retorted, “there is now!”

Details have been slow in coming from the heist and escape, though already each agency seems to have a different story, as I learned when I took part in a in-the-sky ridealong with the Sheriff’s Department.

“Some of them took the road, and others the subway,” said the Sheriff’s Department pilot on the headset, “but we’ll catch them. You can’t rob the Bank of Waterbank and get away with it.”
“The bank was Riverbank.”
“Yeah, what I said. Wait – Riverbank? Is that a bank?”
“Yes, in Helvellyn.”
“Helvellyn? What happened to the Bank of Waterbank? Nevermind – we’ll check the riverbank.”


A view from the Sheriff’s Department copter (pun intentional) looking away from the last place the suspects were seen.

In the first of several planned reports on the Greater Tulagi Region, the Waterbank News has created a map to show anomaly travelers and WW2 era combat participants the growing complexity of the theater.

By clicking on the thumbnailed map you will see the entire contested area, along with the major players in the theater.

What surprised our staffers most was that most of the airports in the theater were neutral, allowing for active combatants to launch from them at the same time commercial GTFO flights could. In fact, nearly anyone can use the airfields, provided they follow local rules and guidelines. While at Archerfield Field (lower middle on the map), we saw a Claw P-40 take off, and a CP P-40 take off only minutes later, undoubtedly chasing it.

“Unless it is a combat airfield like Xilted, air fields are places where the war stops,” said one airport administrator. “What happens once you’re in the Tulagi Sea is wholly different matter.”

The Tulagi region may also be the first to allow smugglers to use the GTFO protocols, taking advantage of the existing combat conditions.
