[Worldbuilder] Record of Descent: Article 117

Good morning! Welcome to WNN. I am Carlita Macetti with your morning news.

Riot fires in Lessham, continued Dervanni oppression, and possible war on the horizon, but first, a special look at the Hope moon base.

Ever since the Gods gave us breath, we have dreamed of soaring among the stars. For millennia, it was assumed to be impossible. The sky was the limit.

The Gods came from space, and only they could return. Even while scientists understood the laws of gravity and were able to attain lift, still the rockets failed. Still we remained grounded.

Many said it would never happen, some even claiming that it was an abomination.

Yet, tonight, mankind stands upon the surface of another celestial body. The Hope moon base, a beacon of its very namesake, rests soundly on the surface of Selas.

killing Payload Specialist Druger Carvole and injuring Science Officer Raitrin Houcotta.

Information pertaining to the status of the base and the well being of the other crew members has yet to been released.

We are being told that LASO is still attempting to gather information, but are having difficulty due to an unsteady connection.

No one has been officially declared to be behind the attack, but several activist groups have claimed responsibility, including the Brothers of the Veil.

The Gods have not released an official statement regarding their standing on the matter, but we can be sure that they are not pleased.

We bring you an emergency update. A series of missiles have been launched from the nation of Haiel and seem to be targeting multiple large cities throughout the globe.

Threatened countries have activated their defense systems, but strongly recommend that all citizens seek shelter. This is not a drill.

If you live in one of the cities listed at the bottom of the screen or its surrounding area, please seek shelter immediat- ....
