(29 November 3049)

There’s been rumors a’spinning over strange happenin’s in the Periphery. A JumpShip missing. Pirate activity down. Collapsing crime syndicates as leadership appears to be vacant.

Gents. Seriously. Periphery. Let’s spell it all out together: P-E-R-I-P-H-E-R-Y.

I can’t believe we’re even slapping gums over this topic. There’s a reason they call it the Periphery. It’s the outback, the wild frontier, the great unknown, the BFE. They sleep with laser pistols not just under their pillows, but in their hands. They got lostech like they’re still in the depths of the Third War, alien beasts that can tear you in half soon as look at ya, not to mention more pirate activity than you can shake a Lyran fist clenching an L-bill at.

What spins around, comes around, gents. This isn’t some big mystery for us to uncover like we’re enjoying an afternoon holovid murder mystery. It’s the same ol’ same ol’. In another couple of months, things along the coreward will move back to normal (or as normal as those Blake-forsaken shores can get) and then perhaps the spinward edge of the Sphere will start yapping about strange happenin’s…’cause when it comes to the Periphery, there will always be strange happenin’s.

Keep it locked and loaded, gents.

Uh-oh, time to start securing those cockpits and picking up both our, and our comrade's salvage. We don't want to leave anything behind to be theived by those P-E-R-I-P-H-E-R-Y pilots!!!

Sounds like opportunities for Lostech and taking over criminal empires!

Better get to it before it all gets 'normal' again :(

We already have the Catapult, but unfortunately the Marauder is unseen

So a partially invisible mech? Who needs ECM anyway.

I wish this would translate into new maps and other content, and if so, hopefully soon. :D

The Federated Suns have a relatively quiet Periphery boarder, no? So aside from our Lyran friends, this has little relevance to us.

Hmmm I wonder what this means, lol :D
Probably nothing, just Periphery banter...

Nice timing, too!

Wow, I thought more people would get this. But I forget many aren't as into lore as I am...


The Clan Invasion Has Started!!!

I was wondering when "news" from the Periphery would start "leaking" information like this. We're gonna be knee-deep in Clanners soon.

Lol what's this clanner you speak of? Is it some new Cultist criminals? We already have the Blakists lol don't need any more crazy cults running around. I'm sure all of this P-e-r-i-p-h-e-r-y "news" is just disinformation from Comstar. We all know how much they like doing that lol. Maybe the pirates are just disapearing for some sort of pirate holiday? Anyways, i'm totally sure there's no boogie man out there waiting to get us. You all make it sound like the children of Kerensky are going to return!

Guys, there has been crazy unexplained stuff going on in the periphery since August.. This is just an editorial opinion news article about that.

Check back on old ISN news feeds, this isn't the first time we've heard of strange things happening in the periphery.
