CAUTION>>: THE OLD TALES FEATURES TINY BITS TAKEN OUT OF OTHER MODS AND RECREATED TO MAKE THEM SEEM OUTDATED!
ALL OLD TALES FEATURES SPOILERS FOR OTHER MODS.
Everyone's so caught up in all these new tales of aliens and whatnot, but no one ever talks about the days of old anymore. Not one whisper about the old famous Explorer Archibald Reynold, or Van Holden but these guys called Edison Trent, and Gasper Orillion. Our flyboys back in those days could've schooled them easily. Hey, that brings me the most marvellous Idea. Why don't I tell you a few tales about these certain historical mentions that everyone forgot except me? Well, I don't care whether you want to or not, I'm going to tell you anyway.
SODOM AND GOMMORRAH
In 524AD, in the New York system were two Liberty Destroyers. They were apparently deemed undefeated by any ship of their kind. They had state-of-the-art technology and Titanium classed armour. Back in these days, those were the most advanced armour you could purchase to outfit your ship. Anyway, one day, the two Destroyers were sent to a Criminal base to attack and hopefully destroy the Base as well as all the criminals on it. You would think the two most Powerful destroyers in all known Sirius could have easily took down a measly Pirate Base, but that wasn't the case at all. The Sodom Destroyer had it's Siege Cannon blown off by an Ordinance mine, and the Gomorrah destroyer had a Pirate Torpedo hit it's main auxiliary engines. These pirates knew the in's and out's of the Destroyers. These criminals were known as the Reapers of Sirius, later known to be the Order. The reapers were working side-by-side with the Order. Back in these days, a Star tracker was a ship of the Elite so seeing the Reapers pilots weakling scrub fighters take down the Liberty Navy's Pride and Joys was a startling surprise for not just Liberty but for all the other Houses. The Destroyers were then unstabilised and nearly destroyed before Liberty Navy Guardian's entered the scene with four Repair ships. In that time however, a Reaper disclosed a Proximity Mine in each of the two Destroyers. This whole operation took a few minutes, but each second counted as much as the next. Later on, the Reaper's were repelled back to their hideout waiting for the inevitable destruction of the Two most powerful destroyers in Sirius.
The next day, a news broadcast was sent out to the known Universe courtesy of the Sirius Galaxy News Service (SGNS) This important report was about the Crew that were on the Two destroyers. Over four thousand people were killed in this sad tragedy. For two hundred and fifty years, everybody held an hour of their time each year, to honour their memories. Its also par this fact, that now most of this technology has been lost, which meant, that Liberty had taken a major step back in the Technology Race while others soared ahead. Even now, the Liberty Government is recovering against the expenses of their two lost destroyers.
Argh, that's all I can bother to say now, but come back another time, I assure you, I will at least have another story for you. I think it will have to do with the Inner Core Black Hole, but that's all I'm telling you...
