HEADLINES: UNIFORM UPDATES IN DEVELOPMENT - RETURN OF PATTERNS?
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - The Directory has confirmed an update to Company Uniforms last weekend amid forward deployment operations. The UD17 was actually criticized heavily for its failure to be adaptive, but was designed with operational effectiveness in temperate woodland climates with urban areas(Westerlands, Southern Border, Swamp). Since most major Company Operations centered around those general areas then, there was no significant push for modifications or changes. In addition, as it was a relatively peaceful time, members had a allowed a more relaxed approach.
But it was known to be called as the UTC’s equivalent of the UCP.
The Uniforms are to be more effective, as well as maintaining adaptability. In addition, the re-introduction of variant patterns such as the Jungle Pattern may bring in more modularity and design choices for Company Forces operating in the field of their environment.
Members of the 1st Regiment will be conducting field trials this week of prototypes. Hopefully they won’t pull off a Pentagon Wars where design and procurement takes FOREVER and costs the state billions of dollars of taxpayer money.
EDITORIAL - The Biggest Cop Out - This is Bait.
Irishkaiser - In dialectics between respect equals, one of the biggest forms of disrespect is to say that whatever your opponent says, in spite of knowing they have wholeheartedly believe in it is to call their statement, argument or opinion as “bait”.
This is the biggest cop out and one side tries to claim a moral highground when in truth it is more like cowardice. Bait exists, but bait is only bait when the person saying the statement doesn’t believe in it, at least, does not believe in it enough to want to defend it. Expendable sacrifice. That is bait.
Most people who say what I say is bait misunderstand. I was serious the whole time. If I wasn’t, how could my opponents take me seriously? This cop out allows the user feel superior, but deep down they refuse to acknowledge their contradictions and go on living their lives in blissful ignorance.
Its use has begun to spread in the Company, where people accuse others of just passing bait and dismissing genuine beliefs as a cheap way to get the upper hand of an argument.
Many forget, we argue to find truth amid evidences and facts presented and listen to different point of views, corroborating the data into the correct decision.
TRADE - US MineZ Trade Mission
1st Report on the Trade Mission conducted by Company Members in Carmi:
2 Chain Sets
2 Iron Armor Sets
*3 Iron Swords**
1 Diamond Sword
The 1st week of the Trade Mission in Carmi has brought about an established presence for Company Forces. The Colonial Administration reports the locals were very friendly. To the point where the GOVERNOR OF HONG KONG, IRISHKAISER began having sex with each and every fucking cat girl he saw in the town, describing it as the BEST DEPLOYMENT EVER. In addition, friendly groups and clans were discovered and made contact with Company elements and trade agreements were established allowing the Company to concentrate supplying other things while they supplied other basic necessities.
The First Colonial Activity did not end successfully but operationally it was carried out very well, drawing many lessons, suggestions and criticisms from the participants. Now we learned and if there’s one thing we’re good at, it’s learning. Sponsored by Skillshare.
Additionally, there is a concern that since the 1st Regiment is leading this Mission, most operational dissection is sent there rather than the General Staff, leading to a very confused command structure and information distribution for members of the 93rd interested in participating.
Imperial Citizens so far have been very very important in this undertaking and may prove to be of bigger importance in the future of trade missions.

DOMESTIC - UNIVERSE ATTACKS OLD MAN FOR WINNING TOO MUCH - COMIC AND UNIFORMS DELAYED
While having such a good streak and a good week, the Universe decided to punish Irishkaiser for having it too good by killing his laptop’s battery. This was attributed to the fact that maybe the UD20’s production should be slightly delayed.
In addition, since most of the files are still on my old computer. Shrauger comics delayed. Ah, c'est la vie.
DOMESTIC - IMPERIAL CITIZENS ANSWER THE CALL
Imperial Citizens answered the call last week to help the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company’s endeavors and missions since some members are deployed far away. Though not, UTC nor even Regimentals, they stepped up to the task and filled in the roles the Company asked for.
DOMESTIC - 1ST REGIMENT JUMPER PROGRAM BEGINS
The 1st Regiment has hired expertise to standardize dungeoneering for the unit in order to be a proficient force capable of tackling dungeons and operating within them. These JUMPERS are to help take the extra free time since manpower was freed up with Trade Missions.
Combat-Capable, Dungeon-Capable, Surveillance-Capable. An all-around, economic, self-contained special forces unit by the end of 2020.
FINANCE - CLAN BANK STOPPED PLAYING BECAUSE WORLD IS NIGGERS
No matter what Beijing, Washington, Tokyo or some other guy does, it’s all going to shit. Welp, time to just wait it out.
