Celestial City Weekly - Issue 14

Post by Asrya » Mon Jul 25, 2016 10:27 pm

Museum acquires new piece.
An anon source has delivered a sword. The curators have identified the ancient blade as being Japanese in origin and investigations have started into the blade's history.
Stories already have begun to circulate of the katana being haunted by a spirit with security guards reporting strange sights including the sword's eerie white glow.
The sword, a katana with a pure white blade, is a unique addition to the newly restored museum.

New Material? Not from where you'd expect.
Created Creatures Labs has announced a new addition to the fabric industry. While their specially bred wool providers, including rabbits, alpacas, goats, and sheep have been highly successful with cloth industry farms a new source of fine fabric has been in the works and will be rolling out the first lines of new product.
Silk.
That's right, Created Creatures labs has engineered a specially bred silkmoth based around the lunar moths of Prime Earth. The larval stage actually consume radiation-tainted plants from the wastelands and seem to safely neutralize the toxic plants before spinning their cocoons. The cocoons are harvested to produce the fine silk thread used to create many forms of silk fabric.
Created Creatures labs has fielded concerns about the fabric being mildly toxic or radioactivel stating that the amount of radiation in the fabric is of no concern to humans and even joking "The glowing will stop in a few hundred years or so".
Kidding aside, the silkmoths' development is at super speed compared to their original counterparts. (From egg to maturity in a matter of weeks) CCL assures the public that the moth worms, while voracious, are of no danger to anything but the radioactive plantlife growing in the wastes.

The resurfacing of several videos and evidence concerning the rape cases against the Meteor Aliens has resparked multiple hate groups and anti-alien rhetoric. In the wake of Timber's announcement and intent to have the very same aliens classified as citizens and granting them the ability to vote in the upcoming elections the multiple sources of alien mistrust and outright hate come at a horrible time.

Alien citizenship, concern for the common man, and a penchant for bowling shirts and the nine pin game itself have given a bold statement to the mayor hopeful and local hero, Timber.
His aide for the city in multiple instances has endeared him to multitudes of citizens. But his alliances in the past have tarnished an otherwise glowing reputation.
While many remain on the fence, much of the city is on the side of the local hero and those willing to vote him into office grows with each passing day.

Delphine Taggart. Largely an unknown in the city before the race for mayor began. Now as well known for her standing in upper echelon of society as she is for the surprising sex tape release. Her platform seems to hinge on freedom of choice as well as control of the metahuman crisis in the city.
Endearing her to the pure humans in the city while making a large part of the city wary of her decisions is a risky move for this mayor hopeful. But it seems to be working out quite well.
While scandal didn't precisely errupt around the candidates candid video, many are wondering if another will be released as part of her campaign strategy.

Media Mogul Abby Vestea has thrown her hat into the political ring. Not content with reworking, rebranding, and utterly reformatting the city's main media outlet. This firey woman has set her sights on the city itself. Her full platform hasn't been revealed. But her base standing seems ot be freedom of information and choice. Banking on the support of the city while holding all of the information is a risky move. Though her campaign has remained neutral in reporting both the good and the bad uncovered during this heated race.
It's unknown how it'll progress from here, but the open flow of information has been a boon so far, and is gaining thee newcomer voters.
----
The electoral committee has been finalized. With districts voting in their representatives from all over the city. Being our own loveable city some questionable tactics were used by a few members when garnering votes. But the votes have been tallied, the reps chosen, and the boards formed. With the mayoral race heating up as it is, the establishment of the electoral boards couldn't come at a better time.

An angry man wearing armor with an exposed brain caused a scene outside the Firefly Media building. Several metahumans arrived and incapacitated the raging man.

An interview with Timber revealed his reactions and thoughts on accusations of loyalty issues, his rivals in the mayoral race, and revealed his preferred way of eating fries.
