(July 19 to July 25, 2021)

Welcome dear readers to the latest issue of the Weekly Gazette! Here in the Gazette, we give you the news in brief of what occurred in the past week as well as provide any news happening in Save-Point itself

Official Area
Occasions
We had a few birthdays that happend this week, but a baker's dozen worth of members were there to celebrate. First off, we had reirei and keibi all sharing their birthday together. This was followed by a couple members going by s3357774 and MillenniaTrishadow all had equal slices of cake. And before you know it, three more members known among us as Prof. Meow Meow, urbios and Vickarius all had the opportunity to blow out their candles. After that, the birthdays of Spoillind and rekkatsu came and went. And lastly, the birthdays of JackMonty, Tsaku and DragonFang321 had passed.


General Chat
It's summer time and people think about fun things like Ice Cream. Well, that's what some people think if ask Siletrea the question of What Are Youtubing?, revealing a fun little chocolate filled delight.

It appears the the European Union wants nothing to do with the UK's demands according to the News of the World. Meanwhile, Israel had set up a task force over allegations that spyware sold by an Israeli cyber firm had been put to use on a global scale. Things shook for Costa rica coming from a 6.8 Magnitude earthquake. And some politicians have likely been shook as the allegation of being unmasked by the NSA from Fox Host Tucker Carlson turned out to be true, Fox News itself berating the government agency for their previous denials weeks before.


Tech Talk
The News of the Cyber World was replete with arrests, such as that of a suspect charged with hacking TicTok, Snapchat and Twitter,and another who hacked Twitter in a cryptocurrency scam. Meanwhile, the Florida-base IT firm known as Kaseya obtains decryption keys to unlock the ransomware spread to their systems by the Russia-based group known as REvil.

How long have Chinese Hackers been at work? According to the FBI, Chinese government-backed hackers have been working as far back as 2011 to break into the control systems of many U.S. oil and gas pipelines. Meanwhile, APT31, a group known for targeting Finland's parliament are performing a massive attack, targeting French organizations through compromised routers.


Forum Games & Nonsense
Beware, gamers. Monsters may NOT IMMUNE ENOUGH to quick thinking or abjectly lucky players as Sareld regailed in a classic Pen and Paper story. Posted by DerVVulfman, it is a tale where a lone elf's longshot against a deadly foe paid off, much to the anger of the dungeon master.



Games Development
Code Support
This week, Lord Vectra came forward needing some help with Script compatibility between DerVVulfman's Battle Equipment script and ParaDog's ATB. DerVVulfman posted a working demo of the two combined, noting that something may have been altered. While it worked, Lord Vectra noted one issue that DerVVulfman identified and quickly wrote a patch to resolve.



Creativity Section
Music and Audio
Three more piees of work were created by Eric Matyas, the musician now Sharing His Original Music and Sound FX. Fantasy, and Sci-Fi material in which to use in your games is free to add. But remember to give him credit, and he is open to and commissions.


Literature Section
The adventures of Cheesie James The Rodent Annoyance continues as kyonides places our diminuitive hero in harms way. How will he survive against a pack of rats looking to pick him clean? The answer and source of his help might surprise you.

Be wary dear readers of Conspiracies Retold, as the CR team had interviewed a member of old who ran an election against RPGMaker XP RTP's own Alex (aka Aluxes). In it, he admits to election tampering years back. However, a dire warning to fans of Alex did he bring forth.

The Bibliotheca
At long last, kyonides continues the tale of Sir Julius in Escape from Alluring Fate (from 2017), begun in 2017. A mission of danger as he and Sir Howard lead a handful of knights into the deep underground where miners have fallen prey to something lurking in the dark, somewhere that they are told they may not even trust their own eyes. No mere wild animal or unthinking terror lies within as kyonides gifts us two chapters in which Sir Julius tries his best to survive.

Patrick Bodkin had had terrible luck. No more car, no more cellphone, no more modern devices because in 2017, kyonides threw him into the feudal fantasy world of Black Collars (from 2017). Still working to uncover how a mysterious woman can control men so easily, Patrick will be forced to join forces with a merc and a noviciate in a priesthood before he can dare to enter a magic shop of ill repute. However, the one luck he has is with lovely ladies appearing, one such now claiming to have known him ages ago as his long lost sister. And who may she be, but the infamous shopkeep herself.




Well, that's it for this week.
