The Yankee Diner (link) made news again after it’s short order cook, Bobby Dandy, drew a drawing that really appealed to table 2.

“I was just doodling between orders,” said Dandy, “and one of the guys at table 2 came over and started going crazy.”

“I went nuts,” said an Advertising Executive from the WBA eating at table 2. “We had been stuck for weeks on what to do about a WBA ad, and then this guy had the idea. He’s a genius.”

“They paid me a lot,” said Dandy, “but I ain’t quittin’. I love the Yankee.”

The Archerfield Waterbank News Office (link under Big 7 at right) is reporting that ZSK is actively working on a project which has been dubbed “Snubbie.”

“Actually,” said an anonymous source that was in the Archerfield Maintenance Department told us, “Snubbie is my name for it. It’s the P-47, that monster of a classic fighter.”

Rumors are circulating that the fighter in construction is capable of bombs and ‘on the rail’ missiles as well as a fierce rate of climb.

“If you know ZSK planes,” WBA President Sketch Sun told us, “then you know that this won’t just be a classic warbird. This will be a deadly piece of art.”

ZSK planes are some of the highest rated planes in the world, and regularly win awards. The stock price on the WSE (link) rose sharply after the news.

The WBA which has been in charge of Waterbank and portions of the WMA for over a year, has appointed a Mayor in a closed corporate session.

“It’s time,” said WBA President Sketch Sun.

The move will once again return power to a civil administrator, though Waterbank citizens aren’t happy about it.

“Who is it?” Asked one citizen we found at ERIA Airport lounge. “Why haven’t we been able to vote on it? Why don’t we know the name?”

When Waterbank News asked the WBA about the new mayor, they had this to say. “Waterbank has always been parliamentary republic. We’ve taken that political framework and grafted on some solid business restructuring so that the leadership is properly insulated. The new Mayor will take over a Waterbank that is budget positive, very adaptive, and can co-exist inside other city-states. Think of it like Waterbank 5.0.”

“It kinda makes sense,” said a poli-sci professor at Waterbank University. “Half of the Waterbank mayors get assassinated.”



















Szym Tower in Northbridge (link) has reopened after finalizing interiors, thrilling the Prototype Tri-State area and the WBA.

“This is a huge development,” said WBA President Sketch Sun, back from week of meetings in the Prototype Tri-State area. “The Tower and the Convention Center are links for the world and put one of the biggest world economies on track for dominance.”

Szym Tower lives up to the hype with stunning views overlooking the extensive forests of Northbridge and Prototype and plenty of commercial space. Stores, hair salons, boutiques, office space, and even a TV studio have already found a home in the tower, and more is on the way.

“They’ve really put in all the things you need,” said a Museum of Forgotten Technology administrator visiting the Tower. “We’re thinking of holding the Museums Convention here, and if I get my way, we’ll also be eating here every night!”

Built by NTBI engineers and installed with Gentek and NBS equipment, the Szym Tower and adjoining Peter Nelson Convention Center are primed to handle conventions.

“The convention space can accommodate most trade shows,” explained Waterbank Marketing, a company that handles conventions. “Except for the ‘Big Booth Trade Show.’ Every convention center hates that one.”

The Peter Nelson Convention Center also has ample parking – something that other convention centers lack.

“Real estate is expensive,” said Grace Development Agency, “so a lot of meeting centers have almost none. The P. Nelson has lots of parking, and space. It’s a beautiful location.”

Everything has been arranged for in the complex, and the Prototype Transit Agency has been working overtime with planned bus and rail lines. “You can imagine how it’s going to be with rail access from Prototype and bus access from Glenbrook – it will truly be a destination.”

Naturally, a large convention will have hordes of hungry visitors, and the area is ready to serve.

“So, let’s go down the list,” said Waterbank Marketing. “Rodex, Larsons, and Yankee diners. Tahda Mart, Astaro food trucks, and a Michigan rated five star restaurant.”

The restaurant on the 22nd floor of Szym Tower is ready to serve discriminating guests that know what fork is right. Already the talk of foodies, the restaurant has earned a reputation.

“Oh yeah, it’s Michigan rated,” explained the Fugitive Lawyer. “The Michigan rating system is much more practical than the Michelin rating, too. When not being chased by police I intend to take my clients there. On their time, of course.”

Accessible from a driving-friendly road network, the Szym Tower and the Peter Nelson Convention Center can be accessed by the Prototype link at right, and a three minute drive east over the Prototype River.

When WBA President Sketch Sun made a trip to Shijima (link) for a coffeeshop meeting, he left more than just a tip.

“Sometimes you go somewhere thinking ‘yeah, another diner meet and greet’, but you get there and it’s just wow, wow, wow,” he told us. “I was so amazed by the town and the beautiful work that had gone into it that I called Waterbank News and then I called Will over at NTBI. He loves this kind of place too.”

The effusive leader of the Waterbank Business Association went on to tell us that the architect of the town, Torigara, runs a business called “::no13::,” and that Shijima is their main shop, complete with items for sale or gacha.

“You should try the curry omelette with katsu and coffee set,” Sun told us, “you won’t regret it!”

Businesses are flocking to Glenbrook, and Prototype insiders are saying it has a lot to do with the “Northbridge Crew,” a subgroup in the NTBI corporation.

“Glenbrook would be nothing without Northbridge,” a Hakuso Investment manager told us. “If you didn’t have heavy hitters like Will Szymborska or Nelson Jenkins in Northbridge laying down the infrastructure, Glenbrook’d be a logging town of 3.”

Businesses like Tunisian Coffee, Sunnydale Sauces, and Grace Construction are the latest to rent out space in the Prototype metro, and the WBA thinks it’s just the beginning.

“It’s just the beginning,” they told us.
