A recent broadcast by the Atlas council has many shaken, concerned or just left with a raised eyebrow. The Atlas Council in a remote press statement has announced that Atlas is taking a six-week break. Following a massive Grimm whale landing on Atlas, among other things, the council decided that the best thing for the country would be to go on a short vacation.

The news were broadcast for the entire city in a mass Scroll announcement, not unlike the one recently hacked by notorious cyber-criminal Ruby Rose. The announcement contained statements of council members Camilla and Sleet, however General James Ironwood was absent, possibly due to being occupied by giant flying whales landing on the city that now has no hard-light barriers to protect civilians. The message seemed to be somewhat suspicious not only because of the message, but the way it was delivered.

The message opened with Councilwoman Camilla, who is best known for taking a pro-local approach to business and helping out the local economy of both Mantle and Atlas by passing a bill providing low-interest loans to businesses during times of distress, like these past few days. Camilla stated that regretfully the Atlas council has decided to take a “well needed 6 week break” and plan on returning “when hopefully all of this has settled down.” Keen viewers have noted a peculiar object just out of frame, hovering next to Camilla’s head. Although some conspiracy wackos have said it was something as crazy as a barrel of a gun, most have agreed that to be a boom microphone.

Councilman Sleet, famous for his pro-Faunus stance and aims to improve the living conditions of Mantle’s working class, then spoke. He claimed that he was in fact “very much alive and well” and that “concerns for his well-being are greatly exaggerated.” Unfortunately, the broadcast was experiencing connection issues for everyone watching, as Sleet’s voice was cutting back and forth and his mouth movements seemed to be stuttering and unnatural. Sleet then finished his message saying that “the council will be back soon, in six weeks” in his signature vacant, unblinking stare.

Our chief editor Jackson wanted to let you all know that we here at vytal_news greatly appreciate the hard work and effort the entire Atlas Council (and especially General James Ironwood) have done and wish them a peaceful break. Also, if you don’t hear back from me in a few days, it means I might have perished defending our office building from several Manticores, but don’t tell that to anyone because that’d be a pretty lame death for a huntress like myself.
