Prototype is in the progress of adding new facilities and improvements but shoppers and visitors are being told not to worry.

“The Prototype Mall with all of your favorite vendors is open for business, and so is the Rodex Diner. You can also demo some of our emergency vehicles at a new demo stand,” explained a SZYM salesperson. Link at right and on the WSE page.


A Waterbank cold case has been reopened after the discovery of vehicle under water in Second Norway. The case involves the disappearance of a Waterbank senator at the height of the Undine Conflict, a crime that has long been suspected to be perpetrated by the ULF. Both the senator and his vehicle went missing several years ago, taking a major opponent to the ULF out of the advisory body to Waterbank.

“The senator was rabidly anti-ULF,” explained a Waterbank historian, “so there’s definitely motive there. There are some conspiracies about the WIA too. The police will have a lot to sort through.”

“We can’t rule anything out,” said the detective on the case. “We’re even looking at the vehicle itself. It appears to have been driven off the pier deliberately. It’s a SZYM Chancellor, which is one of the sturdiest vehicles out there. There’s no way the senator and the driver’s bodies would have had those kinds of injuries with that vehicle. There’s a reason why VIPs still use it.”

Waterbank Police have said that they will continue the investigation as long as there is a trail to follow.


A Claw pilot stunned passengers and security agents when she landed a ZSK p-40 at Second Norway Airport’s Gate 5, walked into the terminal to the newsstand and bought the latest Waterbank News, and walked off. Before security teams could reach the pilot she had already started her engine and revved up the versatile fighter. As an airport security vehicle (a ProStreet SUV) attempted to cut off the plane, the fighter easily outran it and took to the sky.

“I could have done it if I was driving a Szym Entourage,” said the security agent, “instead of that thing.”


The township of Prototype (link at left) has quadrupled in size overnight as the SZYM plant reopened and other businesses rushed in to accommodate thousands of workers. The new has everything one would hope in a working community – a diner, a bar, and a shoe repair place.

Some business leaders speculate that the building of a new NTBI headquarters might be the cause of the boom town, but it isn’t known.


“It’s thrilling,” said Sketch Sun of the WBA. “Bringing back the Rodex and Sweetwater will make Prototype more than just a showroom. It’s a destination now.”



The contagion at ERIA has resulted in a complete shutdown of the airport, as the zombism crisis affects a wider area. Trains have stopped running, the airport is in lockdown, and sales of boats as a get away vehicle are way up.

At Pippen Hot, a cafe a mere 500 meters from the contagion,
there is a drop in customers, but they bravely stay open. “Our customers are like zombies anyway before they have coffee.”

The response to the threat has been impressive, as the photo below shows, with ERIA police and fire departments joining with HCI to contain the threat.


“Just look at the equipment here,” said a Waterbank Sheriff’s Deputy at the containment cordon. “Astaro, HD, Szym, and F-Guard’s new Mobile Command vehicle. Everything we have is out here.”

Zombism is not so easily beaten though, and Governor Chia closed the airport to traffic after a zombie escaped the terminal. East River Hospital has been ordered to prepare “sedatives, cures, or one-step killers” by her office, should the threat escape the cordon.


“They have set up a three ring containment system,” said a representative for the Waterbank CDC. “The first ring was inside the main terminal and has already been breached. The second ring is all the terminal buildings, and the third is the tarmac. If brave hunters like Bizi Pfeffer continue to help us, I think we’ll get back to the first ring. But we need the public’s help.”

WN asked the CDC representative about the outbreak. “I think our official response is ‘oops.'”
