World Gazette

(Based on an idea from a similarly named thread. This is for news stories from your con-world)

The World Gazette
The World Gazette is the premiere news source not only of this reality, but all realities.

Saltha, "Gisanyledaradse" (The people's voice)

Silgiya 23, 10 KG (September 8th, 751 BC)

Public Flogging outrage!
Karathe - King Kakel, oppressive ruler has ordered the public flogging of three people who did not raise arms, nor called for raising arms, but only pointed to injustice and called for it to stop. In return he had the man Urela Usher flogged, but the king did not stop at this travesty. He also ordered a woman, Urela's fiance, Kari Goshutonathes to be also flogged. Even this was not enough. No, the king was not satisfied with the travesty of beating a woman. The King also ordered her young son, a boy, not yet even a uagi (adolescent, 10 year old) to be flogged. They were stripped all naked, shamefully. All three were severely beaten. The boy could hardly move after such a beating. There was a thunder of booing at the guards as they carried out this punishment. The people were too afraid to take any action, but not too afraid to show their displeasure.

The justice of one man ruling all has been challenged, and his response has shown all the more how power should not be held by one man, at the least not Kakel. This, I see is the begining for the end of the king. Though I risk such the same fate as them, I say Down with the king. -darads daesila chigisanailedarade (I, who speaks the people's words)

Hasekgiya 4, 2751 KG (October 9th, 2010)

Gala celebrating anniversary of republic brings guests large and small!
Karathe - when an invitation went out to delegates from a far range of nations, it wasn't really expected just how different the guests would be. There were a race called Saurisians, who are said to be a type of "dinosaur", as big as a house, and another race of tiny winged people called a "Fae" or "faries" from a nation called Eireann Fae. There were also humans as well. a strange sight that has become more common. Saltha received a gift of rare perfumed soaps from the delegates from Etria Massa, as a symbol of goodwill and purity that surprised and honored the people of Saltha.

The guests took in the sights of the fair city, and then danced the night away at the senate building reception. The people of Saltha hope they bring back to their homes stories of good will of our people, as they have brought here the goodwill from theirs, and there can be a spreading of peace to the nations that will mend the wounds of the past.

Gikar 13, 2751 KG (September 23rd, 2011)
New Minister of Doctrine Chosen
Kararthe - Underpriest Ulthake Uda has been chosen to take the place of Gisilathake (Holy head) Laila. The former holy head of the temple of Saltha had fallen ill the last month, and realizing that he was becoming too old and would soon die called for a successor to be named. Uthake Uda underwent the fasting and rites of purification, and was proclaimed at the central temple of karathe by Gisilatheka Lasila the title of Gisilatheka. The former Gilsatheka, as with tradition maintained the title Gisila (holiness). Just two days later, Gisila Lail died. Gisilatheka Uda eulogized the former church leader, saying he was not just a mentor, but a father to him. Gisilatheka Ude said he would strive his best to follow the old leader's great example.

Should we use your format or make up our own?

Either way you want, though it makes sense to try to mimic a newspaper (or other news source like a news reel) from your conworld.

ARÁSALIKÌ SÙU ÁKONRA | CORRUPTION LEVELS IN ARASALI RISE WILDLY
Citizens residing in and traveling to the district of Arasali and surrounding areas are reminded to pay proper tribute to bochi local shrines and to follow the directions of nuslukro purifying officers in the case of an emergency.

BÒA SHÍNVA SHISÁNGARO NÁHI SHIKATÚVONRANVÌ | FUN AT LOCAL FESTIVAL UNTIL GUESTS PANIC
New drug Lajiini "Happy Ghost" was leaked into the water system during a candy-appreciation event in Srito. Mass hysteria set in when guests began to collectively hallucinate that they were trapped in a corrupt space. The panic spread to three other neighborhoods and citizens rioted before the emergency broadcast system took over all communications and pedestrian portals in the area and convinced the crowd that nothing was actually happening; foot travel to and from the area was shut down for four hours. Shkumi Sogiya and Janta Markanpo of famed comedic troupe Kipogada Lucky Teacup lent their mellow voices to the calming effort, and improvised a continuous five hour comedy and dialogue program until the drug wore off. They were joined an hour in by musician Ripiki, who provided soothing background sound and gave a preview of an unreleased song. Recordings of the session are selling for high prices. The local Water Council is aware of how the system was infiltrated, but will not release details on the infiltrators.
