◆Gone Without a Trace! Where Could It Be?◆

The missing 'Linde'

Yesterday afternoon, the airliner 'Linde' vanished over east Bose air-space while en route to Rolent. An exhaustive overnight search conducted by the Royal Army yielded no clues to its whereabouts, leaving all parties baffled. In response to this incident, the army has declared all airliner flights canceled until further notice.
◆Fate of Linde Passengers Unknown◆

The Liberl Orbalship Corporation reports that 17 were aboard the Linde at the time of its departure, including both passengers and crew. Family members of these missing persons are understandably concerned, but remain hopeful.

◆Probability of Accident Is Low, Says Expert◆

Central Factory Chief Murdock proclaims, 'Our orbal engines are sturdy and reliable. The chance of an engine failure is virtually nil. I do not believe an accident to have occurred.'

◆Rumors and Theories Abound◆

Was it a conspiracy perpetrated by the Royal Army and the covert mercenary force comprised of jaegers? Perhaps it was a plot to kidnap the passengers, and hold them for ransom? Some have even suggested the Linde came under attack by the last living ancient dragon!

No matter what anyone may have heard, it's all just speculation at this point, as no real evidence has yet been found. The Royal Army is investigating a possible connection between this incident and the recent burglaries in Bose, but thus far, no information on any such connection has been released.

In fact, no information has been released at all, due to army regulations prohibiting the dissemination of intelligence to the general public -- a policy that I'm sure we'd all like to see repealed!


[Society] Crystal Stolen in Daring Robbery!

A group of unknown individuals recently broke into the Rolent mayor's house to steal a Septium Crystal that was left in his possession. Local bracers came to the rescue and managed to recover the stolen item, but the culprits are still at large. Thankfully, no harm came to the mayor or his family during this incident. 'We deeply regret that the criminals escaped,' says a Rolent Bracer representative, 'but please know that we of the Bracer Guild did everything in our power to apprehend them and will continue the pursuit for however long it may take.'

‾The Rolent Region and the Esmelas Tower‾

The Esmelas Tower lies a few hundred selge to the north of Rolent City, along the Malga Trail. Its turquoise-green visage is the only real landmark for as far as the eye can see. Counting as one of the four tetracyclic towers, its purpose is still shrouded in mystery to this day. This exciting location is as old as Liberl itself, and modern research utilizing the latest orbal technology is expected to answer a few questions about this eerie structure, while posing still others.

【速報】定期船《リンデ号》失踪(しっそう)

◆つかめぬ消息 定期船はどこへ?◆

失踪した《リンデ号》

昨日午後、ロレントへ向かっていた定期船《リンデ号》が、東ボース上空にて消息を絶った。王国軍の懸命な捜索にも関わらず、一夜明けた今もその行方はつかめていない。
◆定期船は全便欠航◆

捜索活動を優先するため、王国軍は東ボース上空を飛行禁止区域に指定。この影響で現在のところ定期船は全便が欠航している。

◆搭乗者17名、その安否は◆

飛行船公社の公表した乗客名簿によると、出港当時《リンデ号》には乗客乗員合わせて17名が乗船していた模様。乗客の家族は不安を募らせている。

◆専門家の見解 「事故の可能性は低い」◆

事故なのか事件なのか。専門家に話を聞いてみた。中央工房・マードック工房長:現在の導力機関(オーバルエンジン)は技術的にも成熟し、墜落に直結する故障が発生するとは考えにくい。事故の可能性は低いと思う。

◆錯綜する情報◆

帝国軍の一部派閥や、諸国で暗躍する傭兵部隊《猟兵団(イェーガー)》による謀略説から、身代金目的の乗客誘拐説、果ては「古代竜」の生き残りによる襲撃説まで、現在《リンデ号》の失踪について実に様々な憶測が飛び交っているが、いずれも噂話の域をでるものではない。その一方、先日ボース地方を騒がせた強盗事件との関連性については、まだ何の情報もない。

こうした混乱はすべて、王国軍による情報の規制によって引き起こされている。規制は市民の不安を増すばかりだ。早期の情報公開が望まれる。
