Mystery of the Lost deepens
Strat and the Lost… Frozen in time
Scientists are still no closer to discovering the secret behind the strange phenomena that is ‘The Lost.’ When these young people reach the age of eighteen their DNA freezes and they subsequently never age. Nobody knows why or how.
The greatest brains of Obsidian have been carrying out experiments on blood from a captured member of this elusive band but as yet are still to find an answer.
Raven, beautiful heiress to the Falco fortune, turns 18 this month. With this milestone birthday approaching, it is not yet known what effect this will have on her responsibilities in our Commander-in-Chief’s various industries and wheter we can expect her to be more active in governing Obsidian.
Until now she has been kept away from the public eye, and with unconfirmed reports suggesting that he has big plans for her, there is hope that Raven will be a lot more present going forward. Until then, from all at Obsidian Times, MANY HAPPY RETURNS.
Falco leads multi-million dollar housing project
Falco, Obsidian’s Commander-in-Chief, has announced plans to build thousands of houses across the city worth millions of dollars. He intends to build on the disued tunnels and subways that run under the city which currently house the many homeless of Obsidian and resistance groups such as ‘The Lost.’ Falco said For too long whole areas of the city have become no go areas, ruled by criminals and the lowest of the low. I will remove this scum for good and make Obsidian great once again.

Scientists baffled by The Lost
The Obsidian Times spoke to the leading scientists behind the study…
Dr. Somnambul said: ‘We’ve never seen anything like this in the known world. Is it genetic? A virus? Due to the high pollution levels in Obsidian? We hoped to find out the answers to these questions but every test has returned a blank.’
Professor Boye said: ‘We believe this can happen to anyone born in Obsidian. It seems completely random. Parents and the teenagers themselves don’t know until they turn 18 if they will freeze. Most families have found it very difficult to cope with and The Lost have become outcasts, living under the city and having to support themselves.’
Dr. F. Hagen said: ‘These kids are very different. They’re not like normal kids their age; behind their eyes there’s a darkness. They’re dangerous.’

Power cuts at record high this month
Lost still at large following latest series of attacks
Sustained raids on Commander-in-Chief Falco’s power grid facilities have resulted in a spike in the number of power cuts across Obsidian this month. Experts are suggesting that the raids increased after his plans to demolish the Deep End were leaked. Now weekly, they show no sign of abating despite the police force intesifying its search for the rebelious group The Lost, who have been linked to several attacks.
Sloane starts charity for urban development
Swathes of the city forgotten
Sloane, wife of Commander-in-Chief Falco, released details of her plan to redevelop lare areas of Obsidian that have been left to decay in recent decades. Over 70 percent of the city is without basic utilities, with local residents resorting to burning their rubbish in the streets, collecting rain water and shooting vermin in order to survive.
In her announcement to the public, Sloane made it clear that Obsidian has been ravaged by time and is in desperate need of rejuvenation. She hopes that this will be the start of a sustained campaign for improvement. It is not known how long this will take or what level of investment is being made by the Commander-in-Chief and his wife.
I care about my friends but they are all older than me and I feel left out ALL THE TIME.
They talk about and do things that I just don’t understand, I hate it.
They act like I’m a little kid with nothing to offer… but I’m as strong and smart as anyone, I just can’t get through to them… what should I do?
Dear Forever Young
I’m sure your friends care about you but it sounds like you should be spending time with people your own age.
Don’t be disheartened, everyone goes through this phase, you’ll grow out of it! Find some likeminded people to socialise with and you’ll find that it’s not long before you can look back at this predicament and laugh. Good luck!
