Introduction:

'Eye of the Tyrancha' is the latest news pamphlet being distributed on all the major capitals and towns on Atys. It uses the finest materials that a novice forager can gather in its creation - just be sure to keep it away from water, sand, dust, dampness or strong winds and your copy should last quite a few hours!

The news agency itself is based in Zora and the owner gives his word that this will likely be the most biased, misinformed and incomplete news coverage you'll ever come across! It is all written from the perspective of a newly arrived refugee from Silan. Read at your own risk.

If you have any news worthy event to report (outpost battles, official or player events or just general craziness), please contact Rikutatis in Zora by Izam courier.

'Eye of the Tyrancha' is a tribute to the old Nexus News as well as to Sxarlet, the most charming trykerette to ever grace Atys News Channel 01!

Sincerely,

Rikutatis, Gibbai Hunter Extraordinaire and part-time Atysian Reporter.

Issue 01: Scandal in the Desert!

Southend Dune Farm Outpost was attacked and seized by Kami guild Temporary Insanity. The previous owner was Exodus Syndicate, another Kami guild. Your intrepid reporter went to Savage Dunes in order to cover the event - after absent-mindedly zapping a Slayer Frahar by mistake and being saved by the staunch Marelli!

The Attackers: Temporary Insanity states that what they did was take an outpost away from the hands of an old inactive guild in order to make it more useful to the younger and more active generations of homins. Rumors that it will be handed over to another, more active Kami guild are spreading.

The Defenders: An unlikely alliance was formed to fight the attackers, including both Kami and Karavan guilds. Kamists were there because they felt outraged TI was attacking another member of the Kami Alliance unprovoked, while Karaveneers went to combat their enemies. There were rumors that TI interfered with previously established agreements of a handover between ES and another guild.

This war raises relevant moral questions: Do inactive one-homin guilds need so many cats and flowers? Would asking nicely have worked? Is this the beginning of a Kami civil war? Is Marelli really a nice person? Stay tuned for more!

Issue 02: The end of the KCA

It would appear that this is the end of the Kami Community Alliance. Most of its member guilds have left, one by one, over the past few days. While it lasted the Alliance has done much to strengthen and establish Kami presence on Atys.

One of the Alliance's founders stated that the member guilds had too many different views and they were not a like-minded group anymore.

While this is a sad day for many Kamists, it is still unknown how the Karavaneers will react to the news as a group. However it is said that an entire shipment of fine Avendale dandelion wine was sent to Cicho Trivaldo's bar on Yrkanis and the neighbors were complaining about loud music all night long.

Whether this will have any impact on the current superiority of Kamists on outpost battles remains to be seen. However, many homins are already nervously talking about impending wars on the horizon.

When asked to comment on the rumors of upcoming battles, Hearts of Thunder guild leader Sweetmarie had the following declaration to make, "Rawr!"

While Karavaneers celebrate, Kamists are still occupying Fairhaven. They are currently planning to build a Kami temple in the city. Are the Trykers going back to the ways of Ma-Duk? Only time shall tell.

Issue 03: On Meowmeows

The addiction to the stimulant known as experience catalyzer - or cats, as they're known in street lingo - continues to run rampant across Atys. The Daily Yubo was one of the first news publications to denounce the traffic and consumption of the substance in Yrkanis. Since then their use became much more widespread and accepted as the norm.

Sages claim that some inoffensive species such as the ploderos and the cratcha may actually go extinct if homins keep using cats and going on killing orgies. Mothers everywhere lock their children inside their homes when guild officers stroll by offering free cats (if you ever wondered why you never see children around, now you know the truth).

#7 [en] 

One of the saddest episodes involving the use of cats actually took place on Yrkanis. A group of troublemakers, all hyped up on cats, decided to forcefully shove an entire stack down Bubbles' throat. Bubbles, Yrkanis' yubo mascott, went missing for several days thereafter. He was finally found in Fleeting Garden leading a pack of gingos after having eaten the previous alpha male.

The more traditionalist homins refuse to ingest the substance before training. To them, foraging and crafting for ten years before they can make their first pair of medium quality boots is a source of both pride and joy.

The situation is dire, dear readers. I will keep you updated on future developments, but if you'll excuse me now, I have a shipment of green meows waiting for me in Thesos.

Issue 04: The groom and the step stool

An investigation was conducted by Chan Ji-Cian to find the missing Zoraï female, Kini Fo-Mio. Kini's parents, as well as her fiance - a successful Zoraï businessman, were terribly concerned about her disappearance. Homins of all races and lands gathered at Jen-Laï to help with the investigations and Zoraï Initiate Ghuiss was chosen to lead the group. Grundelwolf guided the expedition through Knot of Dementia and into the desert as the group followed the tracks of Kini's mektoub.

The brave homins were faced with many perils during their journey, including ambushes by large groups of marauders and giant gingos, but with Ghuiss' superb leadership they were able to prevail. Wise Ghuiss was seen wielding his trusty crafting tool throughout the entire trek, even during the most fierce battles. Unfortunaly he was unable to finish the pair of gloves he was making. Perhaps he had had a few too many stinga beers.

At last Kini Fo-Mio was found in Scorched Corridor, held as a hostage by the Tunnel Hounders. And with her was none less than Be'caun keepy, Tryker seducer extraordinaire and her secret lover! Once the scandalous affair was unveiled, the couple begged their rescuers to let them follow through with their plans to elope and get married at Virginia Falls.

The soft hearted homins agreed to escort the couple to the Falls. Ghuiss, a Zoraï of many skills, performed his newfound duties as a priest and got them married. Aeralin was the bride's witness and Stitch the groom's. The newly wed couple received many generous gifts from their new friends, including a magnificent step stool for the groom.

Issue 05: Nung Horongi: A misunderstood genius?

It comes as a surprise to me that there aren't more homins discussing the provocative revelations of Nung Horongi's amber cube. Or, if they are, these discussions have all been private. Perhaps the fact that Mr. Horongi was known as a traitor and a wanted criminal has something to do with this - I guess murder and extortion can generate some suspicion. It could very well be that he has planned this all along and his amber cube was forged just to create confusion and dissent among honest atysians.

But is the possibility that there's some truth in what he recorded on that cube even being considered? Because if his statements are even remotely truthful, then these are shocking revelations indeed! It would mean that the corrupt Goo, the thing that the Kamis strive to fight, was actually caused by the very essence of the Kamis themselves - their magic. If you want to get philosophical, the Kamis are fighting the repercussions of their own existence.

#11 [en] 

There are rumors that Nung was actually a Trytonite, trying to stir trouble among the factions. An old and blind Zorai woman I met at the Thesos bar went as far as claiming that he was Elias Tryton himself, returned to punish those who did him harm - I did have to buy her a shot of stinga rum for that information though.

And then, what about the Zoraï Initiates (all two of them)? The Zoraï are sworn to fight the Goo and protect the Kami. I see a moral choice there. In order to fight the Goo, they'd need to eradicate Kami magic. Can you imagine life on Atys without magic? No more healing. Relying solely on your mudane weapons when trekking or fighting bosses.

Sounds hard? Well, the other option is allowing the Goo to eventually take over all of Atys. Although purple is my favorite color, a little bit of green here and there does complement it nicely.

#12 [en] 

Moreover, Nung also mentions an alternative source for fueling magic. While he didn't give the specifics of it, he said that when Muang did not use his own energy reserves to manipulate magical forces the Goo was not corrupted. Does anyone know anything about this? I hear rumors that new and spiffy powers are about to be unveiled in Atys, along with new challenges - could this be related at all?

As a concerned atysian, all this writer can do is suggest all readers to go green! Save sap and vital energy, avoid those double spells! Work out and train your melee, do not rely on elemental magic to punish those critters all the time. If you follow these simple steps, future generations of homins can inherit a healthy and green Atys!

Issue 06: Jungle Fever

Do not listen to all the haters and naysayers who keep insisting the Jungle is dead. That's just Matis intrigue. The Witherings, homeland of the Zoraï, is alive and kicking!

If you're tired of sand in your boots or dealing with wet hair all day long, perhaps you should consider moving to the Jungle yourself! And here are three reasons why the Jungle is the best homebase you'll ever find:

1) Companionship: We have it all. Weekly Najab parties at the Tutors camp (in which najab skins are freely distributed for the purposes of communing with Ma-Duk or Jena, depending on your preferences), a mysterious Zoraï wiseman who is known to send Jungle lovers into all sorts of fun secret missions (here's a tip: he wears goofy white pants and makes the best sap boosted pikes this side of the Bark) as well as a new guild of young Zoraï dedicated to promote more activity in the Witherings. They're known as the Atysian Phoenix.

2) New ways to relax: We all know the life of a forager can be very stressful - waiting for the right weather to come, sometimes for several hours, running from Kitin patrols and other nasties while wearing focus gear, as well as dealing with all sorts of poisonous gasses and dangerous explosions. Well, in the Jungle we have a brand new way to diminish stress! It's an activity called Heavy Artillery Yubo Hunting. It basically consists of grabbing the biggest launcher you can acquire and merrily going about blowing up all yubos that happen to cross your path. Sweet revenge for all those pants you had to wash due to yubo urine.

3) Sports: While Zoraï are known as scholars and magicians, we are also very active and creative when it comes to sports. The latest Jungle hit is known as Kirosta Race. It is often practiced by outnumbered trekkers going through the Great Outback ramp. The athlete races against Kirostas and hopes that his invulnerability aura will last. If you win, you get to avoid death penalty. If the Kirostas win, they get a free dinner.
