Founded in the late 20th century, Blue’s News was created to deliver quality gaming news. It reached its zenith in the early 29th century, delivering gaming news to over one trillion readers in more than 4,000 systems. In the Information War (2884-2892) it suffered heavily at the hands of the evil Zenimax Empire, during which it lost more than 90% of its information runners.

Under the leadership of Chancellor Krovven, General Verno, Lord Blue and a mysterious figure known only by the alias ‘theyarecomingforyou’, the organisation has undergone significant militarisation to combat the growing dangers associated with information running.
