Renraku Tower OPENS!
Posted by CalliLurk on Thursday 22 June 2017 - 12:20:36
Across News outlets, newspapers Television and select magazines (Business, tech and to a lesser extent Construction) of the newest addition to the LA skyline being opened up!

“Renraku Tower, the newest building to be added to the LA Skyline has just opened its doors today to both the general public and to establishing business ventures looking to get their hands on prized Downtown floorspace. Said to be the most technologically advanced building to date with some of the best in Green Technology and security systems incorporated into its whole, much of which developed by Renraku itself.

Up for rent so far are ten floors of high tech, modern apartments that are disappearing right quick as well as another ten floors of premium office space ready to go and spaces are filling up fast!

With the completion of the building and its subsequent opening, the corporation is expected to deliver a noticeable boost to the local economy."

Other less interesting details are included in this, including a small statement from a spokesperson. Included along with these articles which focus on slightly different aspects, are photos of an apartment interior that are fairly up to date and refined. Including shots of the small balcony fitted Gardens that are highly prevalent throughout.

In other parts of the Papers, advertisements for job positions have started to open up in the private security sector, sales and low level research and development assistants.


Anyone interested in checking into any of this, Send me a PM! This is also open to all. Not just Hengeyokai!)

The bat-signal will shine one final time for a beloved Dark Knight.

The late Adam West will be honored Thursday night with a lighting of the iconic signal in Los Angeles, with Mayor Eric Garcetti and L.A. Police Department Chief Charlie Beck doing the honors.

The public is invited to the event, which will take place at 9 p.m. at City Hall (200 N. Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90012). West, who played the Caped Crusader on the classic 1960s series Batman, died Saturday at 88.

A Notice to the Amenti
Posted by Vil on Monday 05 June 2017 - 18:34:37
:::The following notice is posted in Ancient Greek and Egyptian, originally on the doorstep of the mosque, but it was quickly found by a cultist and rushed into the temple:::

Toddlers: Ask yourselves how it is that the Reborn, who called themselves 'Shemsu-heru', ancient and extinct, save for your so-called 'Revered One's, once vastly outnumbered the Cabiri, how they hunted us, and how, in the passing of the Malestrom, there are now no Shemsu-heru mummies, yet we persist. As you do, remember that Greece broke Egypt and know that your own persistence brought upon you the hell to come. Nowhere is safe for you.


Aliens in Los Angeles?
Posted by Vil on Thursday 18 May 2017 - 11:49:49
*In a yellow press paper for the more tinfoil hat people this article appeared*

HAVE THE ALIENS BEGUNN THE INVASION?

Yesterday, a we heard the news of a blue light from the forrest.
[Newspaper Name] was the first to investigate. this is our exclusive report.
We folowed a call of a young couple that saw a bright blue light in the distance. when we aproached we found a hole in a huge rock, a hole in the side of a tree and a big crater. as well as goo and traced of a huge animal
Dr Edmund Porters expert for extra terestrials had this to say :

"This is clearly a sign of a space shuttle from the aliens.
An egg spo to speak the goo is, i assume, part of its rapid metamorhisis.
We can only now be vigilant until the Beast in the LA Forrest can be detained and analyzed."

The police had this to say on the matter.

"Aliens, there are no Aliens. Scientist assisting on the matter told us it was probably an asteroid that hit the forrest. There is nothing to worry about."

Church Fire Shocks Neighborhood ---- tonight at 11

[On the evening news]

Anchor: We have Diane live on the scene of a startling event. Diane?

Diane: Yes, Thank you, Ryan. St. Alexandria's Church, a landmark for the community, burned down late this evening. By the time firefighters arrived on the scene, there was very little left. They were able to find the bodies of the remaining Clergy there, but there were no survivors. The community... is devastated.

Random Man: Yeah, uh, like... I didn't see much, but all of a sudden it was on fire. Father O'Halloran, he's been REAL good to us over the years. Damned shame what happened.

Random Woman: I never went to the church, but I always loved hearing the bells on Sunday morning. It's heartbreaking, is what it is.

Diane's voice over random pictures of the church before and after the fire: The community is reaching out to help the families of the victims, and to try to rebuild the Church, but it will take a small miracle to make that happen. Arson is still being ruled out as a cause. Back to you, Ryan.

STARTLING FIRE AND POWER OUTAGE ROCKS PASADENA

A. Rogers

The site of what was a booming industry of food trucks and festivities turned dark this past Tuesday night, when a power outage sparked what police are calling an accidental grease fire at the Make Mine Mac truck. One of the more popular attractions of the food truck industry, Make Mine Mac was founded by Angela Hawkins in 2004, and has been booming ever since with such unique flavors of macaroni and cheese as jalapeno cheddar and garlic goat cheese.

The fire seemed to burn from the inside of the truck, but the damage destroyed the little business from the inside out. It seems no one was inside, some small mercy.

Local businesses are gathering together funds to help Hawkins rebuild her little mobile kitchen, and fans of the business are chipping in as well. We will see if it's enough to get it back into business, and back into our hearts...


Infernos rage across LA!
Posted by CalliLurk on Friday 14 April 2017 - 20:28:47
In the past few weeks building fires have broken out across LA which have left Arson investigators baffled to their cause. So far these fires have struck five properties, Three houses in Atwater village, two of which were luckily abandoned homes whilst the owner of the third died of smoke inhalation an hour later.

The fourth was an apartment complex in Los Feliz which has been completely gutted, leaving four families without a home. Most recently, last night the house of a Garou kin in Glendale was torched. Witnesses are far and few with minor reports of seeing shady individuals hanging around the area and police are looking for witnesses.


((This is for both Fera and Garou. Private Message me on the forum if you wish to investigate)

Companies' Bid War on Local Lumber

Companies' Bid War on Local Lumber
By: Cynthia DeLepardoux


Renewable Lumber and Land Reclamation Services, LTD, (further referred as RLTS) touted as an environmentally-friendly lumber company, joins a host of lumber producers in bids for access to California's natural resources. Other industry giants, including Developers Forestry Group (further referred as DFG), have been pitching their cases before officials, to get bids that would give them access to California's forests for the purpose of clearing limited numbers of trees. With the arrival of another player among California's lumber companies, tension grows between competing companies.

RLTRS' Los Angeles Branch President, Roger Goering, said, "California has vast resources that can be an asset to generations to come, but only if those resources are properly protected and managed. Our company prides itself on its history, albeit still a short one, of providing excellence, both in the product that we provide to builders, and in recognising and acting upon the need for conservation within our industry. A partnership with the state, not just the city of Los Angeles, would be a great, mutual benefit for our company and California as a whole." Spokespeople for DFG and other competing lumber companies suggested everything from naivety to outright carelessness on the part of RLTRS, and to a lesser extent, upon one another.

Environmental groups question the wisdom of excessive harvesting of lumber; some groups go so far as to question the wisdom of any harvesting of lumber whatsoever. At this time, there are no talks of organised protests, but as officials come to the table with representatives of the lumber companies in the coming weeks, this may change. Presently, there is no word from government agencies, regarding who will get the highly-sought lumber bids.


((Mummy Players: Message Me. This is actually expanding upon something in your core book and player's guide. Anyone else: If you have a character with any interest in this article, from any angle, I would say to both reply to this and to send Me a message directly.))

Chaos from the Seas!
Posted by Galileos Lens on Saturday 01 April 2017 - 00:45:11
The world reels as horrors rise from the seas to terrorize the land.

The Atlantic Seaboard of the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, and northwest Africa have all suffered terrible devastation with the rising of a landmass that some experts are claiming is the lost continent of Atlantis. The emergence of the continent sent towering waves crashing in all directions. The loss of life is still being calculated while efforts to survey the new continent have met with difficulty; though visible from ships and planes, no electronic devices seem able to see or record it.

In the Indian Ocean, something lurks, sliding through the seas, bringing devastation to the all ocean-going travel. Freighters and tankers and ships of war alike seem unable to escape it as the Beast prowls the shipping lanes.

From the depths of the Pacific have come terrible behemoths. An immense octopus has torn down the Golden Gate Bridge, a gargantuan sea turtle has moved into the famous opera house in Sidney, and Tokyo has been stomped flat.

The Arctic Ocean is quiet, glowing in the north in myriad hues that rival the aurora borealis. Vessels passing through it see strange shapes lit from below, moving through the water beneath them, and murmur in fear.
