[Featured Story] The Liber Ark Collapses!

◆Enigmatic Object Gone in a Flash!◆

The Collapse Begins

The mysterious structure that appeared last month over Valleria Lake disappeared as suddenly as it came, collapsing loudly in a giant mountain of rubble into the lake.

Many of our readers may have witnessed the moment for themselves, but it seems that it was visible not only from Liberl, but from the southern edge of the Empire and from Calvard as well. A small minority argued that the structure may have been a new weapon belonging to the Royal Army, but this turn of events seems to conclusively rule out that possibility.

The collapse of the Liber Ark also caused a two-arge high tsunami around the edges of the lake, but so far, there have been no reports of serious injuries, fatalities, or missing persons as a result of this.

The worst that seems to have been reported is a number of unfortunate fishermen, who were unable to escape in time, getting covered in water.

◆What Was the Liber Ark?◆

Aerial View of the City

According to an investigation by the Royal Guard and Bracer Guild, it was a flying city from ancient Zemurian times. How exactly it came to be above Valleria Lake to begin with or what caused it to collapse remains to be confirmed, but it appears to be without a doubt that the international crime syndicate known as the society was somehow involved.

While this has yet to be officially confirmed, reports suggest that an investigation team in the city encountered a group of crimson soldiers there, supporting the above theory. 'This place is just one mystery after another, but we can't let those guys get away with any more than they already have!' said a member of the team.

Furthermore, Zeiss Central Factory and the Royal Army are planning to continue investigating the Liber Ark, and to this end will be launching a combined salvage operation.
◆Recovering From the Shutdown◆

Around the time of the Liber Ark's collapse, the Orbal Shutdown Phenomenon that tormented the whole of the country finally ceased. As a result, many now believe that the city caused the phenomenon, but no conclusive proof of this has been established, and we can only await further research into the issue.

◆Thoughts◆

The Orbal Shutdown Phenomenon and the chaos that was created as a result have been a sobering reminder of just how dependent all of us are on orbments in our daily lives. Perhaps something similar may never happen again, but this is still a good opportunity to reflect on just how much we owe to orbments, and perhaps to try and reduce our reliance on them.

[Politics] Crown Princess Klaudia's Been Busy!

As previously reported, Her Highness Princess Klaudia is now this nation's crown princess. As a result, we will be referring to her as such in all publications moving forward.

Scene of the Discussions

Crown Princess Klaudia wasted no time after assuming her position in meeting with Prince Olivert of the Erebonian Empire, and together, they reconfirmed our two nations' relationship with one another. After the discussions, they both boarded the Arseille together. It's widely expected that this meeting will contribute to ensuring peaceful relations with Erebonia in the future.

In addition, the pair plan to both be in attendance at the upcoming banquet to be held at Grancel Castle. We will bring you all the latest on that in due time.


◆Closing Thoughts◆

As you all know, our homeland of Liberl has fallen victim to a vast number of calamities over the past year; there was the coup d'etat, the bizarre changes at the Tetracyclic Towers, coming under the assault of an ancient dragon, our capital being attacked, and finally, the Liber Ark's appearance as already discussed in this this very issue. What you may not know, however, is that there is group of young men and women who were involved in the resolution of all of these crises, their steel-like will and unyielding determination leading them to their conclusions. If not for them, these crises may not have been resolved or taken a turn for the worse.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all they have done for us:

Thank you. You are truly this nation's great hope.

【特集】浮遊都市《リベル=アーク》崩壊!

◆あの謎の浮遊物体が突然の大崩壊!◆
Liberl News Insert Sky 3rd 1990 - The Collapse Begins

謎の浮遊物体、崩壊!

先月よりヴァレリア湖上に出現していた謎の浮遊物体は、出現時と同様、突如として崩壊した。この様子をご覧になっていた方も多いと思うが、轟音と共に崩れ落ちる様子は、王国内に留まらず、帝国南部や共和国においても認められたという。ごく一部ではこの物体が王国軍所有の兵器ではないかと囁かれていたが、今回全面否定された形だ。

逃げ遅れた釣り人

またこの大崩壊の衝撃により、ヴァレリア湖沿岸地域では、最大約2アージュの津波が発生した。現在のところ、怪我人や行方不明者の情報は入っていないが、逃げ遅れた釣り人らが巻き込まれ、水を被った模様だ。
◆浮遊都市《リベル=アーク》とは?◆

Liberl News Insert Sky 3rd 1992 - Aerial View of the City

浮遊都市の全景

王国軍親衛隊と遊撃士協会の調査によると、この浮遊物体は《リベル=アーク》と呼ばれる古代ゼムリア文明の浮遊都市であるという。そのようなものが何故ヴァレリア湖上に出現したのか、また何故崩壊に至ったのかは現在も調査中であるが、国際犯罪組織通称《結社》が関与している事は間違いないようだ。正式な確認は取れていないが、都市内で紅蓮の兵士と遭遇した調査隊が交戦したとも言われている。
<ある調査員の話>

ここは分かんない事だらけだけどさ、あんな連中に好き勝手させるワケにはいかないね!

なおツァイス中央工房と王国軍は、今後共同で《リベル=アーク》の引き上げ・調査を行う予定だ。

◆導力停止現象の回復◆

Liberl News Insert Sky 3rd 1994 - Rejoicing Citizens

喜ぶ市民たち

《リベル=アーク》の崩壊と前後して、王国全土で発生していた『導力停止現象』は終息した。現象を引き起こしていたのは《リベル=アーク》だったという推測もなされているが、現在のところそれを立証するものは見つかっていない。今後の調査が待たれるところだ。
◆解説◆

今回の停止現象とその混乱は、我々が日頃どれほど導力器に依存していたかを痛感させてくれた。このような事態は二度と起こらないかもしれないが、これを教訓とし、導力器に頼らない備えと心構えを持つべきだろう。そして導力器という存在に、今改めて感謝しなければならない。


【政治】クローディア王太女、ご活躍

速報でもお伝えしたが、クローディア殿下がこのほど王太女となられた。リベール通信では今後、殿下の表記をクローディア王太女に統一する。

ご歓談の様子

クローディア王太女は早速、エレボニア帝国のオリヴァルト皇子と会談なされ、両国の友好的な関係をご確認なさった。またお二人はそのまま巡洋艦《アルセイユ》にもご搭乗なされた。今回の会談によって両国の和平関係に弾みがつくものと期待される。

またグランセル城にて主催される祝賀会には、ご両名とも出席なさる予定とのこと。この祝賀会の様子も追ってお伝えしたい。

最後に ―特別号配信に寄せて―

この一年ほどで、リベール王国には多くの事件難題が降りかかった。クーデター事件から《四輪の塔》の異変、地震や濃霧といった異常現象、古代竜の襲撃。そして王都襲撃と導力停止現象、《リベル=アーク》の出現と大崩壊。

この全ての事件解決に携わった遊撃士たちがいた。どのような事態にも決して諦めず、不屈の精神と輝きをもって私たちを支え、事件解決へと導いてくれた。彼ら彼女らがいなければ、事態の収束はなかったかもしれない。あるいはもっと何か、悪い結末を迎えていたかもしれない。この場を借りて、16歳の若き遊撃士たちに感謝の気持ちを伝えたい。

ありがとう。私たちの希望の翼。
