Spoiler:
 

+++ Pertinent Information Reguarding Current Events (Adventure Seeds) +++


760.999.M41 Imperium Advances on Fi'rios and Ksi'm'yen

Though the scourge of the Ork have been almost completely driven out of these septs, there are still sporadic attacks from outlying clans and remainder forces. Though the septs thought they'd get years of peace, it was not to last. Latest reports show growing number of Imperium traffic in the sector. The Space Marines have landed multiple scouting parties and are anticipated to attack soon. The Vior'la sept and its warriors, stand ready to support their neighbor septs.

760.999.M41 Au'taal Expeditions

Old war veterans and heroes of the Tau have grown restless and miss their days of youth and battle. The supreme council, headed by Aun'va, held a private audience with some of the most revered and esteemed Tau, from all castes. The outcome of this meeting was a declaration that the veterans would be better utilized exploring new territories and worlds. Their charge would be to seek out new worlds ripe for settlement, and to help the third sphere expansion the best they can.

760.999.M41 Sa'cea Artefact World Studies

Tau scientists and academics have recently returned from the artefact world of Arthas Moloch. They now intended to study and analyze the samples they've brought back, as well as to continue mapping the structure of the small planet.

760.999.M41 Tau'n Completes Orbital Station "Infini"

The engineers from Tau'n have completed the biggest orbital station in Tau history. This design is a prototype and will be used in the future if testing proves successful. Orbital Stations based on this model could be used from anything from advanced mineral mining, deep space exploration, among a litany of other uses conducive to the Greater Good.

760.999.M41 Bork'an Forces at Stand Still

The warriors fighting for Bork'an are spread over multiple planets, engaging the waves and waves of Tyranid bioforms that are flooding in from the hive fleet. Hostilities have arose due to the take over of multiple "allied" Imperial Guard outputs and small cities. It is uncertain at this point, whether or not the Space Marines will be called in to intervene/help.

+760.999.M41 Pirate Activity on the Frontier Shipping Lanes

Many third sphere shipping lines around frontier worlds had come under increased pirate attacks. The culprits were stealing supplies, technology, and weaponry. In many cases, entire cargo crews would go missing as well, assumed to be taken for the vile slave trade of other alien species. One such gue'la pirate vessel, The Canterbury, was boarded and taken over by a combination of sector fleet Marines and tau special forces operatives. Shortly after the enemy ship's transition into real space, two separate energy signatures were picked up by The Monat just behind it. After the operation, Strong Tree had the system scanned once more and only one signature remained. Intelligence on the situation is still being gathered.
