*** Videtis quantum scelus contra rem publicam vobis nuntiatum sit? ***
The Flagritz Empire is no more! The Flagritz Republic is reborn! Quick on the heel of the collapse of the Empire, the Fessin caste declared a new era of foreign and economic policy with a rapid withdrawal behind the Black Gate.
The new ecologically-friendly Prime Minister Kayxaer, asked for patience as “economic” reforms were undertaken. It remains to be seen whether there will be any price to pay for the dramatic changes being made by the reclusive Flagritzi or whether it will all be sunshine and rainbows going forward.
Inside this issue of the SSS: * Large at Large * &etc
*** Large at Large ***
A scallywag from one of Pirate Large’s boarders was heard bragging about the pirates' latest conquests. The tally of eleven ships captured included three Dewiek ships, a couple of Felini ships and at least one Wimble ship. The pirates appear to be concentrating their efforts in the wild frontier of the Coreward Arm and Orion Spur.

*** Toadstool For Sale ***
The galaxy’s favourite stoner (now the Mohache have gone all astral on us all) is selling a mining outpost in the Respite system. He’s only asking for $1,000 but you know where that money will go.
*** Lovely Roy Seeks Young Thing ***
Roy of the absolutely fabulous Roberts clan is seeking the "fine young upstanding owner” of the CIA’s “Constantinopolis” for a bit of plea bargaining and you-scratch-my-back-and-I’ll-scratch yours. Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge. A bob is as good as a beehive to a blind lemur.
