Verity Gavroche – Correction: VIU and Varati Ring at War

Verity Gavroche – Correction: VIU and Varati Ring at War

A few days ago, I reported that VIU and the Ring were squaring up in COL 285 SECTOR IX-T D3-43, after we’d intercepted a message from Ursula to Arthur.

The following day, it appeared the war was off – confirmed by Arthur himself in a message to Ursula and the rest of the other local factions.

Well, it seems NoSecrets isn’t infallible – because you can’t always assume that what these guys say to each other is the truth!

See this:

==+ NoSecrets v2.1.0 Log. License expires 17th Feb 3303. +==
==+ [1041747696046841508] > Packet snoop established. P2P GUDP Packet identified. +==
==+ [1041747696046841525] > qTLS Tap OK, Auth: Mutual. Eve (v1.2.7701) is in the house +==
From: [CSO Arthur Guin (Varati Independent Union)|Napier Depot|Varati]
To: [CSO Ursula Le Clarke (Varati Ring)|Lerner Beacon|COL 285 SECTOR IX-T D3-43]
Subject: PS...
Oh Ursula, in case you hadn't noticed...

I lied.  Aren't I naughty?

Sorry and all that.

As you said: game on :)


==+ [1041747696046841609] > qTLS Tap Dropped. Eve (v1.2.7701) has left the building +==
==+ [1041747696046841609] > End of P2P GUDP Packet +==

I can’t imagine Ursula is going too pleased about this – but she’ll probably be too busy organising her combat forces to say anything…

This is a major move by the VIU – our local sources tell us that if they win the war, then they’ll also steal control of the system from the Ring!

Arthur Guin: from zero to hero!

…until our own expansion bid kicks in, of course
