A brief statement that doesn’t require its own thread:
According to The Scope’s news ticker, “Military Coup Carried Out By Colonial Militia on Vevolenel V Claim ‘Dissident Refugees’ Arriving in Octanneve.”
Clan Licei of Moisant—Octanneve V would like to emphasize that we have no knowledge of the military coup that took place eight jumps away, though as refugees ourselves, we feel concern for the welfare of our neighbors in Solitude.
There are a few habitable planets in Octanneve, and the news did not specify whether the dissidents are headed for Octanneve V.
We must emphasize, however, that Octanneve V, and especially Moisant, is not prepared to take on refugees at this time. Speaking for Moisant, we are still in the process of rebuilding, and can offer no shelter and no resources to anyone else, even those in meed. This is a regrettable circumstance due to the storm that destroyed our city only a few months ago.
We are also curious as to whether the same “seeding” that resulted in our hurricanes also played a part in the coup at Vevelonel.
We do wish the best to these refugees and hope they can find safety and shelter with others.
Clan Licei of Octanneve V
