English

It is taught in school as a required course, but is not spoken everyday by the average person. Conversational english speakers may be found in metropolitan and trading areas, spoken by high ranking and public liaisons from NPO and militia personnel, in tourist areas, the spaceport and certain news and entertainment venues.

It is highly recommended you learn japanese to communicate with the population, or to hire an interpreter and or a cultural liaison.

"The naginata is the weapon of a proper woman. Training with the weapon teaches, grace, etiquette, discipline, and strength. It is an important part of a girls traditional education. Most women take with them the lessons learned but abandon the weapon when they complete their education. I did not."

MustSee Travelogue
                 Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu

The New Year is the most important holiday on Nejiro. Years are traditionally viewed as completely separate with each new year providing a fresh start. It is celebrated from December 28th - January 4th. January 1 is a very auspicious day best started by viewing the new year's first sunrise (hatsu-hinode), traditionally believed to be representative for the whole year that will commence. Therefore the day is supposed to be full of joy and free of stress and anger, while everything should be clean and no work should be done. Most businesses and government offices shut down January 1st - 3rd, and families gather to spend the day together. Most dress up in their most festive kimonos to observe hatsumode (the first shrine visit of the year), and after praying to the deities of the shrine, people line up to buy omikuji (lucky charms) and hamaya (demon exorcism arrow) with the zodiac of the year. And all children enjoy receiving otoshidama (new year's money) from all their adult family members. The holiday begins on the 28th with Osoji (great housecleaning), all the dirt that accumulated in homes and workplaces over the previous year needs to be cleaned away, and symbolizes a fresh spirit and new beginning. Then homes are decorated with new year ornaments welcoming the new year gods blessings and warding off misfortune and unclean spirits. The postal deadline for nengajo (new year greeting cards), a very popular custom where handwritten greetings are sent to family, friends and coworkers updating them on the years progress and offering good wishes for the upcoming year, individuals usually send out several dozen; they are to be at the post office by close of business on the 29th for special delivery on January 1st. Also on this day all the preparations for osechi-ryori are made. The traditional new year dishes recognizable by its colorful and elaborate arrangement of fish, beans, shrimp and other ingredients, and the fancy boxes in which they are contained, representing longevity, endurance, generations, prosperity, good health and happiness.

Bonenkai are year forgetting parties and held with the purpose of leaving the old years worries and troubles behind, usually with copious amounts of alcohol.

In the Kiso Mountains, southwest of Ceallach on the shores of Loch Shin, stands the oldest surviving town on Nejiro, Stonehaven. The Fire Festival has been held here since before The Founding. The Fire Festival is held to burn off the bad spirits left from the old year so that the spirit of the new year can come in clean and fresh. The Festival begins at sunset with the lighting of The Bonfire. The Festival continues with fire performers (dancers, jugglers and object manipulators), many of which light their props from The Bonfire. There are also drummers, pipe bands, fiddlers, story tellers, ceilidh dancers and Celtic fusion bands. There is a rich selection of food including curries, dumplings, scones, whiskey, bannocks, shortbread, black buns, crepes, hand pies, and beer. At eleven the crowd gathers around The Bonfire as The Marchers construct the fireballs; balls of chicken wire with juniper and other dry flammable materials, up to two feet in diameter, with a wire, chain or nonflammable rope up to three feet in length. As the crowd sings Auld Lang Syne the fireballs are set alight from The Bonfire. The Marchers; in costume and painted faces; continuously swing the fireballs around their heads and following The Pipers, circle The Bonfire several times then set off from High Street down to Mercat Cross then on to the Cannon and back. Spectators beware. At the end of the procession; while the bells of the Tower house ring in the midnight hour; the burning fireballs are cast into the loch. This signals the launch of the fireworks from barges on the loch, to mark the start of the new year. Now the party begins and continues for the next two days.

At three am Wednesday the Saga Chiku was rocked by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake, which in turn caused a large landslide. The slide had a volume of about 100 million cubic meters and traveled quickly over six kilometers. Three villages; Kangle, Hanawa and Iwagasaki; were buried completely. Approximately 300 families were entombed. Nearby Kiah's Hammers were investigating what might be artillery fire and due to their quick actions, many lives were saved. In his statement to the press today MP Artur Romanov expressed his personal gratitude as well as that of the Government to Hauptmann Franks and the personnel from Camp Kurawa who generously lent their efforts to the massive search and rescue operations that has so far saved 682 lives. Rescue efforts still continue.

Harlech,Outreach
In a predawn attack, a massive explosion destroyed the Home Guard Compound. Meanwhile fighters bombed the DropPort and other Guard compounds. Following these assaults, a force of roughly four battlemech regiments strong emerged, and supported by armor and infantry, cut a swath of destruction across the city. The Dragoons Command & Control Center and the Mercenary Hiring Hall have been completely destroyed. Harlech was set ablaze in several areas with many of the attacking mercenaries gunning down civilians as they fled. The Dragoons counteroffensive swept Harlech clean of the last of the renegade forces in a brutal action reminiscent of a Clan Trial of Annihilation. The past twenty four hours have seen entire swaths of Harlech devastated in vicious street to street fighting. Both sides suffering heavy casualties, with the civilian losses even higher. Most Dragoon forces have been recalled to Outreach. The MRBC has officially branded Waco's Rangers, Smithson's Chinese Bandits, the Tiger Sharks and the 51st Panzer Jaegers as renegade commands.

STAR LEAGUE DISBANDS
Duke Anatoly Serfass of Alarion gave the following statement to the Pressroom. Ladies and gentlemen of the Press I bring shocking news. The second Star League has disbanded today at this fourth and final Whiting Conference. Proclaiming their unwillingness to continue as a member of the League, the Capellan delegation was the first to withdraw all political and military support for the alliance. In light of ongoing domestic crises in their respective realms, the Federated Suns and Lyran Alliance both found support for the Star League to be financially, politically, and militarily prohibitive. The withdrawal of these states from the League; came amid protests from representatives of the Draconis Combine, Free Worlds League, Rasalhague Republic, Comstar, the Word of Blake and Taurian Concordat; all of whom pressed for a vote of no confidence in the Star League. The Word of Blake and Concordat were inducted into the League to participate in this vote, hoping to counterbalance the Capellan, Federated Suns and Lyran decision to vote against the Star League. The resulting 6-3 vote in favor of the League's continuance did not carry the required three fourths majority to sustain the alliance, much less force its withdrawing members to continue their support for it. You will recall of course that the withdrawing realms represent the combined populations of more than half the Inner Sphere. The standing First Lord, Christian Mansdottir, acknowledged the vote and formally dissolved the second Star League on the grounds of insufficient support from her member states. Ladies and gentlemen, with a heavy heart I say that we all stand witness to the end of an era. I can only pray that humanity has no more need of the Star League.

New Veins Energize Failing Iwa no Shukaku Consortium
Large deposits of copper, cobaltite, gadolinium and titanium have been found on 8721 Amos, 1906 Naef, 2265 Raz and 3389 Juno respectively. The projects are anticipated to each have a twelve year life with 25 million tonnes of ore mined and 16 million tonnes of concentrate produced per annum. This has breathed new life into the company and CEO Niccolo Polo expects to show a profit return to investors beginning the third quarter of the fiscal year two years hence.

Comstar AP News Service
3067 December 6
New Samarkand, Voice of the Dragon

Tharkad Bombed!

That was the word today out of Governor's office confirming the rumors that have swirled around the water coolers, taxi stands, and college papers across the planet. According to Governor Rothschild the Lyran Capital suffered a nuclear strike from an unknown Warship orbiting the planet. Reports that the strike came from the ancient Lyran ship LCS Invincible remain unconfirmed. "Coordinator Kurita and his Heir are safe having departed Tharkad almost twenty four hours before the bombardment. They are currently in route to the Combine through a secure route and will enter our nations borders in the next few weeks." Said Governor Rothschild. Details of the nuclear holocaust are sketch at best, but various sources confirm that the devastating attack wiped out much of the capital city. Most of the planet is without power, and unsubstantiated rumors tell of elite battlemech squads landing on the planet's surface. "The Draconis Combine condemns the perpetrators of this attack and their use of illegal weapons of mass destruction on the innocents of the Alliance," commented the Coordinator in a message sent to all Combine news stations. "Once the identity of these murderers has been confirmed, appropriate measures will be taken to assure the safety of the Combine people and the population of the Inner Sphere. To protect the loyal citizens of the Dragon, all military leaves have been cancelled in all districts, and the DCMS has gone to standby alert. Any attempt to strike a Combine world will be met with swift action." Said Tai-sho Hohiro Kurita in a brief statement to the prefecture capitals. "All on world militia commanders are to report to their superiors. To the citizens of the Dragon, we understand the hardships you are about to face with increased security and the calling up of our reservist. Rest assured that if the blood of the Dragon is spilled we will spill much more from our enemies."
