Exclusive announcement from the CEO of Nutrivend.
“We are investigating two possible cures for the infection. Our first has proven ineffective – we tested it in a limited area in Romero City, but unfortunately effects were negative. We tested with full support of the Mayor.
“We are now working with the White House to release a healing agent which should reverse the effects of the infection. We are waiting for White House permission to test.”
A quick statement from a LexCorp representative say that they have developed a custom “Zombie Choke Bomb” over a large portion of Romero City, in conjunction with the National Guard.
What does this mean for Romero City, which was previously reporting a solid defence against the hordes? Is the state capital now overrun as well?
The Mayor of Romero City is testing a cure in partnership with Nutrivend and early reports are indicating a success.
More to follow as this develops.
In an exclusive interview with Governor Oda, she claims that the Federal Government have the cure to the epidemic sweeping the nation, but are not intending to distribute it, despite the state of emergency.
All our hopes seem to now be pinned on the cure coming out from Nutrivend, trialled in Romero City and Marquette.
As previously reported, national media has learned of allegations that the DHS and the Pentagon told the Mishigamaa National Guard to arrest the Governor of Mishigamaa.
Since then, we have learned of far more disturbing developments.
In particular, the White House and the Secretary of Defense gave written orders for the Pentagon to coordinate with the Mishigamaa National Guard to illegally act in Mishigamaa.
According to our sources, it was the Pentagon (and not the Mishigamaa National Guard) that determined that such actions were illegal.
Given that there is written proof that the President gave authority for the Pentagon to act in Mishigamaa, it is now only a question of when (rather than if) the President and her Secretary of Defense are arrested and charge with high crimes and misdemeanours.
I, the Editor in Chief of the Kanawha Newspaper am running for President of the United States of America! I have been dutifully representing the voice of the people during this pressing weekend, and I have been the only voice of reason amidst all of this chaos. I hope you will consider giving me your support.
The national media has learned that the DHS and the Pentagon previously told the National Guard of Mishigamaa to arrest the Governor of Misghigamaa. DHS and the Pentagon attempted to convince the National Guard that the Governor was unstable and not fit to govern.
The National Guard subsequently determined that such orders were both illegal and immoral. They consequently refused to comply with such order.
It is unclear at this time whether the order was due to the fact that the Mishigamaa Governor is currently running for president and does not appear to be favored by the White House.
This leads to the question of whether the White House has taken advantage of the crisis to further its own political agenda over the well being of American citizens.
Following her last press statement, the governor of Mishigamaa has confirmed that she will call in federal forces to deal with the outbreak, either to cure, or to kill every single infected person if not.
“I’m doing it for the country”, she said when questioned about her motives as she declared a State of Emergency. It has been noted that state Mayors have been asking her to do so for several days. Is she finally giving into their demands?
The Governor has also announced that she is running as a Vice Presidential Republican candidate.
The Vice Governor has endorsed the Fists of Jebus working with the State Police, and has officially made their leader a Police Deputy.
In other news, fires are spreading out of control in Grand Rapids, and Bay City has formerly requested the state to firebomb the entire city, as it is now lost to the hordes.
Following reports that the Mishigamaa State Governor had been taken into custody by the National Guard under orders from the Pentagon, it’s not been revealed that she has been released after a successful legal battle.
She claims that the Federal Government have the cure to the outbreak, and will release it to the state once a State of Emergency is declared, which she will do promtly in a press release to follow.
From our lead reporter:
“So we just managed to escape. I was in the middle of a review of Mishigamaa’s premier sushi restaurant when I heard the ever present moans of the walking dead increase and ascend the stairs to our third floor office. Luckily the fire doors delayed the horde long enough for us to escape down the rear exit and into my Editor in Chiefs very expensive four by four. My very well payed Chief then whisked us away to his forest retreat from which we will continue to report events.”
The Chief of Police for Spearing has joined the Free Militia that has held him captive. He is apparently suffering from Stockholm Syndrome and has relinquished his duties for Spearing Police.
News just in that the State Governor is being held against her will by the National guard at their base.
This follows a difficult time for the governor as she was confronted by her city Mayors in a heated meeting. However this worrying development suggests a military coup rather than political intriguing. Doe the National guard intend to take over?
The Marquette City Mayor (presumptive Republican candidate from the state) comments that the state having no active government makes little difference!
Weygand and LexCorp to merge, says Bay City official, after talks managed by the Mishigamaa State Governor.
More to follow…
Police in Spearing are doing an excellent job of protecting the beautiful small town of Flint and keeping it free from zombies. The Police in Flint have kept mass panic down and are using advanced policing tactics in order to contain the outbreaks and keep people safe. Well done Spearing Police Dept!
News just come in that the Mayor of Grand Rapids has been stranded in the overrun Spearing City his personal helicopter crashed in the plaza mall on route to meet the State Governor and demand she resign.
Best of luck to the Mayor in fighting his way out the city.
Reports say that he left the Deputy Mayor defending the city with her own special forces, after he withdrew police protection from major areas of the city. The Deputy Mayor gave a rousing speech to rally those still defending the city.
Following our earlier story about a White House official risking kidnap to meet with a terrorist militia group, we have had a source from the Pentagon confirm that he was in fact kidnapped, but promptly rescued by special forces within hours.
Following the mayoral confrontation with the state governor, there are reports of mass panic and riots across the entire state, with some reports claiming that the National Guard are beginning to desert their units to return home to protect their families.
The governor stonewalled the mayors’ demands and has refused to step down or declare a State of Emergency.
– Romero: Still defended, but situation is deteriorating. May re-instate emergency declaration. Rebuilding field hospitals and fortified base of operations with LexCorp. Mayor now declared “Interim State Governor”, and will attempt to run defence of state from there.
– Spearing: Police Chief captured by Free Militia. Militia demands federal response to save city and admit responsibility, or will execuse him. Deputy Mayor Hunt is running for Mayor, and declares Spearing one of the last safe bastions against the outbreak.
– Grand Rapids: Mass panic, Nutrivend CEO staying in secure facility to work on cure. Chief of Police has been infected. Mayor intends to force governor to declare State of Emergency.
– Bay City: Quarantined and overrun. Federal drones bombing infrastructure to strong infestation spreading. City of Police condemns Mayor for failing to coordinate City Evacuation, instead working for political gain. Police Chief declares intent to run for Mayor.
– Marquette: Fully infested by the outbreak. No news on additional funding bid.
In an act of incredible ineptitude, Nutrivend has sent dangerous research specimens to the Shawnee News Office, unnecessarily endangering the lives of our colleagues and setting back future research efforts.
A spokesman from the Fists of Jebus has issued a statement condemning violent action from other militia groups, and deny any allegations that they are involved in riots or kidnapping. They claim to only be interested in defence of their fellow citizens.
“We are calling out the Governor to resign immediately, due to her poor decision making and failure to bring in the National Guard to save the people.”
They demand that she either call a State of Emergency instantly, or stand down to make way for someone who will.
They propose the Mayor of Romero City to stand to take the Governorship.
Is this a Democrat plot to take over State government? Or a simple cross-party consensus to deal with a major crisis?
The Governor responded to this with “No comment.”
A meeting is currently underway between the governor and the city mayors. The Bay City mayor is confronting her angrily. More on this story to follow.
The White House has stated that the previously reported nuclear breach in Mishigamaa is actually located across the border in Northland. While discussions are apparently underway between the White House and the Northland Prime Minister, the White House is unwilling to share any details with a concerned public.
The Bay City Mayor is reportedly leading a coup organised among the mayors of the major cities in Mishigamaa to overthrow the State Governor, citing complaints over the Governor’s response dealing with this current crisis.
Reports have come in, confirmed by City Hall, that the federal government have started using drones to bomb key infrastructure such as bridges in Bay City, to try and stall the “Alternatively Animated” threat.
A source in City Hall claims the authorities have abandoned the city and refuse to deal with the direct threat to the populace. Our source believes that the Governor is completely wrong to have not issued a State of Emergency.
Reports have come in about a potential leak in the Bruce nuclear power station on the shores of Lake Huron.
The populations of Bay City, West Branch, and Gaylord have been warned, and are recommended to evacuate and move to Romero City if at all possible.
The Deputy Governor of Mishigamaa has given an inspiring speech to the National Guard and citizenry based in Romero City, which has single-handedly stalled the sense of panic in the area.
Romero City continues as a shining example of a city dealing well with a major crisis, with the Chief of Police increasing budget for bringing on more SWAT teams to beat back the “zombie threat”. New weapons have been deployed to keep citizens safe. In the Mayor’s words, “this is going to be a great step forwards in ensuring that the people are kept safe and sound”
Reports of Mass Panic in Grand Rapids, with riots and people fleeing the city. This has been confirmed by the City Mayor, who made a statement to the press, urging citizens to stay calm and evacuate to City Hall which is still protected.
Nutrivend still working on a cure in their secure facility, supported by the City Mayor providing funding and manpower. The Mayor says there is no evidence that Nutrivend are responsible for the outbreak.
White House State Liason to meet with militia groups to discuss possible locations and instigators of the outbreak – such groups have been accusing the federal government of collaboration.
Rumours are circulating that the militia groups may try to kidnap the Liason officer.
Various accusations have been coming in of corporations – LexCorp, Nutrivend, and Weygand – stealing corpses of decorated policemen who laid down their lives for the citizenry.
The CEO of Nutrivend claims that these accusations are completely unnecessary, and that their efforts to obtain “biological samples” are completely overseen and approved of by the City Governments, and in accordance with State Law.
A highly unusual news article today. The Mayor of Marquette has just officially requested additional state and federal funding due to the 40,000 additional citizens that have appeared in the city over the last few days.
Federal law apparently demands that if the “Alternatively Animated”, many of whom have been recognised as former Veterans, are recognised as American Citizens despite their previous reported deaths, then the city must request $180m in additional funding to offer medicare and social services.
The mayor, initially shocked by the request, has promised to discuss it with her legal team.
FEMA has informed the national media that they are working closely with Nutrivend on treatment of the infection, but has found most other corporations to be unresponsive and unhelpful.
Notably, the national media has heard reports that Nutrivend of Mishigamaa has been stealing corpses from hospitals without the permissions of the families of the deceased, which raises questions about the moral standards of FEMA.
The Free Militia have captured Waygand Corp HQ. On interrogating their records they have found evidence that their lab in Bay City was the originator of the outbreak and that they had been working with the Federal Government.
This links in with previous reports that a LexCorp facility in Bay City could be the source, which was being investigated by local police forces, and observations that the State Government abandoned Bay City to the hordes very early on, rumoured to be a coverup for their corporate dealings.
The Governor denies this, and claims that National Guard deployment were unable to get into the city to assist. As a result, they had to quarantine the city.
More on this story as it develops.
State Governor says that declaring a state wide emergency was the right decision allowing her to keep control of the resources and co-ordinate Cities. Governor allocating all resources possible to aid Cities. No intention to declare State Wide emergency in future.
Romero City expected to raise state of emergency shortly. Mayor wishes to offer assistance to more of the state, while the State Government praises them as a model of how to react under a crisis.
Bay City however, is to be placed under State Lockdown, evacuated and abandoned. Press announcement from State officials to be expected shortly. A anonymous source from within the police department blames this on the Chief of Police failing to negotiate adequate resources and failing to make use of state supplies, while the State Governor promised assistance from the National Guard which never materialised. My source believes that the city was abandoned by the state right from the state of the issue. Was this a ploy to prevent full investigation of the LexCorp facility?
Marquette is not doing too badly, but has major divisions among its officials. The Police and other Emergency services are no longer cooperating in tackling issues, while the Mayor is reported to be campaigning instead of coordinating the defence efforts. She reportedly abandoned
Grand Rapids is now the last of the five major cities to declare a state of emergency. The Mayor would like to issue a bit shoutout to the efforts of all its emergency services. Angry mobs have formed at the hospital and Nutrivend HQ. Bereaved familes have had the corpses of their loved ones removed from the morque, and suspect Nutrivend of turning them into more Alternatively Animated.
As far as Spearing goes, the State Governor would like to praise the City Officials and Police Force for saving her mansion and family, but they do not deny reports that the majority of civilian protection has been outsourced to militia armed by the state.
Our sources have corroborated evidence to identify our former anonymous source claiming credit for the global ransomware attack as a member of “The Well Ordered”, a suspected terrorist group which Nutrivend accuse of trying to source biological weapons.
A kill switch has apparently been found for the ransomware virus, which is no longer spreading through global banking systems. However, The Well Ordered have not come to an agreement with the US Government, and intend to continue their attacks to prove UN involvement in the Blight outbreak.
Nutrivend have been approached by The Well Ordered hoping to source biological material from them. Apparently this militia group wish to use Zombie samples as a bio weapon. Nutrivend have reported this to the police and will not be co-operating with any militia groups in the future. CEO of Nutrivend has stated he is unhappy with police response and is concerned about the increasing power of Militia groups.
Various reports coming out of Bay City at the moment.
City Hall confirm that they are conducting an investigation of the LexCorp research facility in the area, rumoured to be the secret source of the Blight outbreak.
LexCorp deny these rumours, saying that their facility is a standard research laboratory, well known about by the city government.
While City Hall are not on best terms with LexCorp, they have a closer working relationship with Weygand who are developing new weapons to fight the hordes without risk of civilian casualties. They are working together to send security and scientific teams to investigate the nature of the hordes.
Corroborated reports from across the state confirm that the State Police are seeing great success in dealing with violence and infected hordes, but are being very selective in their deployments.
Romero City is completely cleared of riots, while smaller towns such as Iron Mountain are overrrun and ignored by the State Police.
Talks with Feds to increase their capabilities and spread their influence further in the state, but how will they use this power? Rumoured to be conscripting veterans – but claim to be just accepting volunteers.
Meanwhile, the National Guard deny rumours that they are planning on using Tactical Nuclear Weapons to control outbreak. Reports from an anonymous high-up source says that they may in fact be selling these devices to corporations instead of using them to defend the populace. This links in with rumors in Romero City about radioactive material.
A source wishing to be described only as “a patriot” has informed this paper that they believe the source of the outbreak across the entire nation is a secret lab situated in the Bay City area in Mishigamaa.
This information is gained by the source through interrogating captured infected persons.
If true, then is this, as suspected by some, the result of state experimentation or corporations meddling with nature in the name of profit?

A press statement from the Mayor of Grand Rapids says that the city is now clear of infestation. Partnering with Nutrivend (who have their HQ based in Grand Rapids)
They have discovered the Blight has spread to other animals – an undead crocodile discovered in the sewers, flights of rotting crows, etc. However, they have now been cleared out and Nutrivend are close to discovering a cure.
Reports are coming in from multiple sources that despite initial problems with effective deployment of police, Romero City has now been cleared of the “Alternatively Animated” hordes.
The Police Chief has eased off double shifts, but is reported to be the subject of a federal investigation alleging that he ordered the shooting of civilians. City Hall stands behind its chief of police at this time. City Hall spokes person stated “People are innocent until proven guilty”.
On Sunday there will be a local “citizens of the future” event to look forward to an optimistic future.
Why has the state abandoned smaller cities in order to protect Romero? Is this the result of corporate meddling? LexCorp has recently moved HQ to Romero, and apparently other corporations are in similar talks.
BREAKING: City of Spearing is in process of declaring a state of emergency following advice from the National Guard. Several Zs have been captured and are available for research.
Reports say that the local militia group known as the “Fists of Jebus” have stepped in where the security services have failed. This local Militia group as succeeded in gaining control of Weygand Corporation, have captured a live Z specimen and been deputized in the state of Mishigamaa. What else will these heroes achieve next?
Update: statement from The Free Militia
“The Free Militia go way back with Fist of Jebus. They will be fighting side by side to defend the State!”
Observers have observed 8 separate hordes spreading through Bay City. Panic is rising among the civilian populace, and the hordes are spreading around key areas – malls, hospitals, government buildings, etc. Two office buildings have been destroyed. City emergency services are apparently unable to cope with the outbreaks.
Reports say that the State has abandoned the city to the hordes, and that the Governor has dropped her presidential candidacy in order to save face.
Reports have come in that city officials in Grand Rapids have personally defended a local high school from the AA Horde, with the Mayor (a former pro-wrestler) personally wielding a cricket bat, back-to-back with the Chief of Police
Reports are coming in from across the state of drones spotted flying across major cities in Mishigamaa.
Anonymous sources say that these are recon flights authorised by the Pentagon
BREAKING: We’re sorry to report that our office in Bay City has been surrounded by the -ARIUGKJN /,lmn /lkmfnadfhi[oi uo;okm,……………………………..
Marquette – City Mayor and Chief of Emergency Services – “The government of the city of Marquette has announced today that we are taking all reasonable measures to counteract the Blight and lawlessness that has occurred in our city,
“We have the full support of the Chief of Police and Emergency Services to take these actions to improve the quality of life in the city.”
“The governor assisted me in hand-to-hand combat defending the injured in the Marquette city hospital. I successfully slaughtered a number of the ‘Alternatively Animated’ – a very successful afternoon.””Straight after, Governor Osa confirmed that she would be dropping out of the Presidential race, and support Mayor Gibson’s bid as Republican nominee”
However the Chief of Emergency Services reports of civilian casualties due to police prioritising the defence of the Mayor instead of protecting neighbourhood districts.
NutriCalm Ultra- Helps keep you calm in times of crisis.
Nutrispeed – Help give you that edge when reaction time is critical.
Perfect for front line services.
A spokesman from the Mishigamaa State Police reports that they have the situations in Romero City and Grand Rapids under control, and are now moving in to Spearing to assist the city-sponsored militia take control back from the “Alternatively Animated” hordes.
However there has now been a prison breakout in Battle Creek which the state police have failed to get under control.
Mishigamaa has recently seen a large investment by several Corporations including a new Hospital and Laboratory in Marquette by the Nutrivend Corporation. This significant investment in the area has been hailed as a triumph by the local mayor and the state governor who is currently electioneering for the Republicans for the upcoming election and will obviously feel that this will be a boost for her campaign. Some sources have suggested that some public money or other concessions have been made to encourage such a large investment in the area however this has been denied by officials. Meanwhile LEXCORP are currently developing several exciting new chemical and biological technologies. LEXCORP have stated that it develops “Weapons for Protection not offence”. Officials from the Corporation state that low cost but high quality medicines will be flooding the market as part of a strategy to undercut competition.
With all this recent investment in the state and specially in the Marquette area questions must be asked as to the motives behind this investment. At the end of the day Corporations are not charities and the bottom line is always the end goal. One wonders whether the strange incidents that have been occurring across the state can be linked to this influx of Corporate investment. As ever we will be keeping an eye and ear on events and will keep our readership informed.
Political and Military Correspondant
One of our reporters has had an exclusive interview with a spokesman from one of the horde, claiming that the “Alternatively Animated” are misunderstood and being persecuted by the state and profited off by the corporations.
A statement from the Mayor of Romero City:
“I am declaring this state of emergency because I believe it is more important to save the lives of people in our area who are suffering and stop this crisis spreading than it is to think about politics at this point. We are extremely disappointed with the lack of national support early on, but are are glad that the government is now seeing the importance of the situation in Romero, and we are happy to stand and set an example for this country getting the situation under control”
“We were supported mainly by the chief of the ambulance service and also we’ve had support from our main national funders – Nutrivend and LexCorp”
A press release from the state government has confirmed that Governor Osa intends to run as the Republican candidate for the Presidency.
Bay City press officer confirms rumours from social media that a “zombie horde” has overrun the city hall.
Source reports mob out of control due to poor coordination from the Chief of Police.
Grand Rapid city hall prefer to refer to the rioters as “Blighters” affected by “The Blight”
City officials from Romero City, Marquette and Grand Rapids have all issued statements to the press regarding violent incidents spreading across both cities.
Reports are coming in of riots – violent injuries and firestarting – which the emergency services are barely able to contain due to critical underfunding on a state level, and rumoured City Hall embezzlement in Romero City itself (according to an anonymous source in State Government).
All cities report that the emergency services have finally been able to contain the violence, but not before the mayor’s own house in Marquette was burned down, with only a lone Democrat rosette found at the scene of the crime.
The more excitable reports from the ground keep referring to “zombie outbreaks”, but at this point we have no further evidence as to the cause of the unrest, other than the Deputy Mayor of Grand Rapids refusing to deny the existence of zombies.
