I recently received a mission from EarthCorps Headquarter in Zweihander, Alpha Centauri to scout the main path of Witberg sector and to kill any Bogeril on sight.
It didn't took more to fimd my first story as a independant reporter, in this article, I'll present you the Bogeril civilisation, their cultures, history, their beliefs and much more!

But first, before heading to Witberg, let's see what we can find about them, my book of 'Past Battles: Their effect on todays warfare tactics, Tome XVII: The Bogeril' would be a good start.

The Bogeril is a Terran Independant organisation founded by a great visionary: Sam Bogeril, the history of this faction start a little bit more than 200years ago, in the 22th century, in early 2300, Sam made himself known, he was a descendant of the first settler in Alpha Centauri along with fellow terran, but he wanted more for his people, thus around 2340 he began recruiting follower in the denizens of Alpha Centauri. He've been known as a political dissident and pirate by EarthCorps when he only wanted to share his great vision of a reckoning, of a land he could name his own. Having suffering an economics embargo from most of the other factions, he had to rely on piracy and economic technology to strive in this world, unfortunatly, uncle Sam got kill in 2351 in a skirmish with EarthCorp by captain Gerard Braun.
The Bogeril are primarly a pacifist group prosecuted by many, nonetheless the EarthCorps faction, over territory occupation of Alpha Centaury system. As far as battle tactic goes, they does not seem coordinated but rely on quantity, their technology may be view as a primitive one, using debris of all kind and tape to make some renowned device such as the famous 'Duct Tape' or 'Solar Sail' engine.

As I was preparing my undercover mission, I remembered that I was planning to talk to Bogeril in a EarthCorp faction ship, their nemesis, fortunatly I still had a 'Fetch-O-Tron', a genuine piece of Bogeril technologies consisting as a big glued ball of debris double coated with ultra-sticky glue attached to the ship with elastic rubber band, you can call it Bogeril's own tractor beam, this unique device can normally only be obtained if you're a Bogeril, it will surely show them my pacifist intention.

As I enter Witberg, my ship scanner warn me of a impending threat

*Warning: Unknown Entity 5k away. Status: Hostile.*
*Incoming scan*
*Decrypting... 'Weed and the vrill'... Accuracy of decryption... 34%*

Very interesting! The Bogeril came up with a new hull, they probly didn't attack as they saw my Fetch-O-Tron when scanning me, I wonder what 'Weed and the Vrill' mean, most likely a inside joke. As they dont answer to my reply 'puff.. Puff.. Pass..' I proceed to warp to the Bogeril Negociation Vessel.
Just as I exit warp I find myself surronded by Bogeril fighter, they must has been alerted by their ship near the gate. Nonetheless, I engage conversation
[AH] "Asking permission to speak with your representative."
[Bogeril Fighter] "Don't play games scum! I've saw the fetch-o-tron on your ship, how many innocents have you killed to get it and defy us with it on our own land?"
[AH] "I haven't kill any, I got this device from a old friend, Atomas Liregol, I want to write about your culture so the world may know the truth."
[BF] "It is indeed strange that you know Atomas, I used to know him, you may talk to our representative but under heavy armed escort."
[AH] "Sound like a plan!"

10 minutes later I found myself surronded by heavily armed ship ready to unleash... Wait... Trash?!? at me. Anyway, here I was, before Leeroy Junkbins, well known figure of the Bogeril.

[AH] "Thank you for accepting me on your land. First off, I noticed you have made progress on your ship's Hull, I saw your new model."
[LJ] "Hmm we haven't changed our ship since 78years, what are you here for?"
[AH] "I would like to learn about why you are here and who you are. You are being accused of piracy and attacking convoy, is it true?"
[LJ] "We only get what we need to survive, nobody want to trade with us in fear of those pest at EarthCorps, InfinityCorp has been salvaging our home. I think it is only fair to take back what is ours, we do not do piracy, they do by preventing us the right to live."
[AH] "Do you have any pr..."

*Warning: Hostile Entity on approach. Scan detected.*
*Decrypting... "Weed and the Vrill" Accurancy: 34%*

[LJ] "Let"s talk about this later if you want to live."

As I noticed all Bogeril ship warping away in every direction I realized those aren't Bogeril... Let's go back to Headquarter to report this.


From ArmyHaunt

'From ArmyHaunt
To EarthCorps HQ

To whom it may concern, while on duty patrol in Witberg sector for a routine search and destroy of the Bogeril pirates, I came across an unknown ship by the gate to Zweihander' my radar clearly show them as hostile but they didn't not attack. They scanned my ship and transmitted 'Weed and the Vrill', please note that my onboard decryptor showed a accuracy of 34%, far below the Glenn Commission protocol to identify this as a direct contact, it could had been a interception from my scanner. I replied 'This is EarthCorp Captain ArmyHaunt, I'm asking you to leave this area immediatly and to seek authorization to enter this space.' as the protocol want.
Without any answer, I proceeded to come back to the HeadQuarter for debriefing. Take note that I haven't met any Bogeril rebels.

Captain ArmyHaunt, out.'

I had finished my report, left it at my superior desk when a idea crossed my mind.. What if.. I could decrypt their language? Sure thing, EarthCorp doesn't have to know this. This would be a long trip, across the asteroid belt and Saturn to finally reach Jupiter. But how could I go there? I have to follow my order or I would loose my cover.
The day after, I've received a memorandum, EarthCorp is looking for volunteer to act as a link between faction leaders, it wasn't too long before I volunteer to be part of the convoy to Jenquai Space as a living weapon of destruction and death, as they told me in training camp, so much for me.

Arrived in Jupiter, we were asked to wait around to escort any political figure if need be, but that we could visit Jupiter otherwise. There is only one place I wanted to be, talking about my projects with a Sha'Ha'Dem, those were known to be good at decryption.

*Scanner activated*
*Found 1 Target. Engaging communications link... ... Link activated.*

[AH] "Hi my friend! I would like to speak with you on a delicate manner."
[J1] "I will NOT taxi you around! Stop it!"
[AH] "I did not meant to ..."
[J1] "Yeah you dont meant.. Always the same thing. When will you stop abusing our kind! Go away!"
[AH] "But..."
[J1] "GO AWAY abuser!"

This is starting to look more strange than anticipated, I'll try with another one.

*Scanner activated*
*Found 2 Target. Engaging communications link on secondary target... ... Link activated.*

[AH] "mmm... Hi?"
[J2] "Sup fella."
[AH] "I need help on a official mission, you have been choosen to help humankind."
[J2] "Well.. Mmm.. Don't you want a wormhole somewhere? I mean, I'm still a apprentice."
[AH] "I go by the name of ArmyHaunt, captain of EarthCorps fleet, in charge of a very special mission, I have brough my team with me if you'd like to see in docks. But only interact with me as this is very delicate."
[J2] "I can smell your lie from Saturn, but I like secret stuff, what is it about? Oh, my name is Aaron Shim'Tari but people call me Dyonyssus.. Long story back from school, you know that Dyonyssus was the god of party and wine? Long story short, back in school I had the habi..."
[AH] "Yes, yes back in business. I am offering you the credit on what could be a great discovery for humankind all alike. I need a better decryptor better than InfinitiCorp's one."
[DY] "Well, this is easy, I'll give you mine, it is a Shindari, much better than what you call a decryptor, I'll deal myself of having a new one back. One condition tough, stop it with your 'Let's save the world' speech, you're abusing my ears."
[AH] "Thank you Dyonyssus! You will be the first to know once I'm done!"
[DY] "Whatever, want a wormhole?"
[AH] "No.."

Device Installed*

With this new decryptor I should be able to learn more about those entity.

Come back soon for my special report on those entity.
