Pill box hats will be the rage this fall. This week had all the major designer reveling their new fall lines. With no less than 6 of the top designer featuring pill box hats in their fall collection, we are sure that pill box hat will be the hot item come fall. In other fashion news, designer Cherkir shocked everyone not with what his models were wearing but what they weren't wearing, their fur! Three of Cherkir's models, including the supermodel Fiklia KiKik, had shaved off all of their fur except for the top of the heads, back of their necks and their tails. This is the first time that any designer has use models with a majority of their fur shaved.

While in a bar on Holawal the bartender tells you:
"Now, you know that the Mouth for DC Discount is claiming the their recent disasters is due to sabotage. Well, let me tell you, whatever the cause is, you'll never see me get on one of the Colorful Cattle Cars. I mean it doesn't make any difference if its fault of DC's or terrorist's. The bottom line is their ships go boom! Shame too, I was hoping to visit my sister on Alro later this year, but it looks like I'll put it off until next year when I should have enough Rykies saved up to afford passage on some other line. So, do you want another Brown Nut Ale or maybe you would like to try a Synapse Slam."

One of the largest crowds to ever form in HighSeat gathered today as many hope to get copies of the new book, "There Be Dragons!", autographed by the author, Vahn Ecir. Professor Ecir's book has in one short month become one of the best selling books of all time on Kelnee. "There Be Dragons!" contends that the Dragons of lore do indeed exist and uses eyewitness accounts, blurry photos and holos, and archeological artifacts to support his case. Several noted authorities have claimed that Professor Ecir's book is nothing more that a rehashing of old tale and poor science, to which the Professor has responded by saying "I am quite saddened to hear this from some of my colleagues. I had hoped that they wouldn't give in to their petty jealousy, but obviously that is not the case.

Investigators today revealed that last week's bombing of the popular eatery "PoPolo's" was indeed the work of the RaTanie terrorist group "Shadow Fang". Head Investigator Wor Doral said that investigators where doing every thing in their power to bring the terrorist to justice. The investigators have issued an order that all RaTanie citizens and RaTanie vessels are to be denied permission to leave Holawal until they have been questioned and cleared of any involvement in the bombing. The investigators attempted to gain entrance to the RaTanie Embassy but were turned away by armed troopers at the Embassy gate. The RaTanie Ambassador during a press conference told reports "We are committed to do all we can to aid the Lopdun investigators in apprehending these criminals. However, the detaining of RaTanie citizens and the attempt to search this Embassy are actions which my people will not tolerate. This latest round of tensions between Holawal and RaTa comes after many had believe that had the trust between the two powers had finally been regained from the Tor's moon incident, in which Holawal and RaTanie force fought each other with both sides claiming the other side had started attacking without provocation.
