S5E154: 'Ajax kan geen ervaren assistent naast Schreuder zetten'

  In de titelrace maakten Feyenoord en AZ geen fout. Beide ploegen wonnen hun wedstrijd in de midweekse speelronde. FC Twente verloor in Arnhem twee punten. De vraag is of Ajax gaan aanhaken. In de AD Voetbalpodcast bespreekt Etienne Verhoeff met Sjoerd Mossou hoe je een crisis doorkomt bij een topclub, de eerste goal van Wout Weghorst voor United en de VAR. ‘Dat de scheidsrechter zijn eigen beslissing nam bij Feyenoord was prima. Maar bij Twente…', begint Mossou als de VAR beslissingen van de woensdagavond worden besproken. 'De VAR is ooit bedacht om situaties zoals bij Thierry Henry te voorkomen. Die goal van Van Wolfswinkel was zoeken met een centimeter. Ik begrijp daar niets van.' Ondertussen kampen twee topclubs in Nederland met een crisis. Hoe ga je daarmee om als directeur? ‘Bij Ajax kiezen voor een creatieve oplossing door een assistent te vervangen of erbij te plaatsen. Dat is niet vaak gebeurt. Maar je kunt het bij Schreuder eigenlijk niet aandoen. Stel dat je nu een ervaren trainer als Henk ten Cate neerzet naast Schreuder, dat zou dat richting Schreuder een enorm zwaktebod zijn. Dan zeg je eigenlijk hij kan het niet.'In Eindhoven spelen hele andere problemen. 'Daar is het eigenlijk nog wel ingewikkelder. Een trainer die het elftal niet aan het voetballen krijgt. Tegelijkertijd kan je er bij PSV niet omheen dat ze hun twee beste aanvallers hebben verkocht. Dat ligt in de boardroom. Begint de crisis daar of op het trainingsveld. Met het halen van een spits van Anderlecht die nooit scoort heb je het nog niet opgelost.'Beluister de hele podcast en ook het verhaal over de mentale coach van Ajax die vraagt naar het vertrouwen in de technische staf nu via AD.nl, de AD App of jouw favoriete podcastplatform.Support the show: https://krant.nlSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

This episode carries content warnings for distorted and layered vocals (00:30 - 01:10), discussion of workplace injuries, discussion of medical debt, and discussion of slavery and indentured servitude. For three years, the Bilateral Intercession has held Palisade under blockade. The Pact of Free States holds just beyond Nideo space, waiting in the dark for an opportunity to strike. The Qui'Err Coalition's fleet hovers at the edge of the Mirage, a flock around the Brink. Millennium Break's strike force hides in the shadow of Palisade's moon, Travertine.  Something must give. Someone must move.  And that is when Perennial whispers into an ear she's taken as her own, giving the Witch in Glass a new task and reminding her of an old law: Everything that has happened before will happen again.  And so she moves. The Witch in Glass is fearless, and after all, she has two Divines on her side. The revivified corpse of Past and, of course, the Adversary herself. So she leads the Reflecting Pool (and its many attack wings) crashing through the blockade and driving Crystal Palace once more into the ground--albeit in a much more controlled way this time. It is only hours days after making landfall that the Witch departs the city, joined by Emmeline, her attache, but leaving behind her most loyal supporters. She leaves behind two orders: First, that they must turn their wider landing zone into a city worthy of her rule before she returns. Second, that the city must carry the name which came to her as she browsed Past's ruined archives one night, taken from a kingdom that once ruled vast expanses of the Quire desert: the Crown of Glass. And with no further words, she wanders out into the wilderness–everything that has happened before will happen again–leaving behind only a group of the ship's de facto leaders to see to the new city's repairs and re-establishment. This week on the Road to PALISADE: City Planning Department Records Recovered from the Divine, Arbitrage Factions The Bilateral Intercession: This faction, made up primarily from Stel Nideo and Kesh assets, was formerly known as the Curtain. The rebranding comes as part of a “civil coup” performed by Cynosure Whitestar-Kesh. In a move that surprised no group more than the Curtain themselves, Cynosure spent years growing in confidence and power, until that intelligence organization could be once again reduced to a tool. Still defined by their traditionalism, they wield their control on culture, religion, and history as a weapon—and the extensive spy network for which they are named when those come up short. The Pact of Free States: While the Bilateral Intercession's name change reflects a shift in leadership and posture for the Curtain, the shift from “The Pact of Necessary Venture” to “The Pact of Free States” is simply the public acceptance of what was already widely understood to be true. Led in name by Dahlia, the Glorious Princept, and in day-to-day operation by senior members of Stels Apostolos and Columnar, the Pact paint themselves as liberal reformists whose aim is to increase the degree of autonomy in each of the Stels, such that they become in reality five separate nations. Hypha & Ashen: The former were a culture of galactic nomads, guided by a paranatural force called the Strand which they could commune with using technological devices built into their antlers. The latter are their descendants, their routes broken by the Principality's expansions and occupations, their culture ripped from them.  The Branched: A post-human culture from the Golden Branch star sector who have transformed their bodies into spectacular forms, but who are now weighed down by an endless war with the Principality. Persons Apparatus Aperitif (they/them), Shunley Pernard (they/them), Antonina Juris (she/her), Plum Tort (he/him), and Kojack Variety (he/him): The leading council members of the Crown in Glass, the city built from the fallen ship the Reflecting Pool. The Witch in Glass (she/her): A former scion of Kesh who, after knitting a bond with the adversary Perennial, came into control of the body of the Divine Past. Now scours the galaxy for the lost, injured, and unsure, recruiting them into her growing city-state. A shaky ally of Millennium Break. “Haunted” by an old foe. Exanceaster March (he/him): Head of the vast Columnar multi-system conglomerate called the Frontier Syndicate, which is older than the Stel itself. While the Syndicate has its hands in many enterprises, the heart of it all is corralling and instrumentalizing data. One such effort, Exanceaster's pet project the March Anecdatist Foundation, set its sights on Palisade as a testing ground. Locations The Bontive Valley: When the fledgling Divine Principality left Palisade—for reasons unknown by most—those few who refused to leave (unwilling to see themselves become part of a new empire) remained in quiet isolation, blessed by the gifts of the Divine Bounty. Where that Divine is now remains a mystery. Miscellany The Perennial Wave: Perennial is something like a god, or at least I think she imagines she is. Her wave is her arrogant whim, made manifest. Functionally infinite nano-particles, spread throughout the galaxy, hampering all technology except (curiously) Divines.  Kalmeria Particle: A so-called miracle of modern science, providing those that master it power akin to what was wielded before the Perennial Wave. Like most miracles, there is an explanation, but most people have neither the knowledge of nor interest in what it really is or where it came from. Some know that it is named for the rogue engineer Kal'Mera Broun, but few know that it is the result not only of their research into the divine Asepsis, but also the particular consequences of Millennium Break's battle with Motion and her siphoning of so-called “Autonomy Itself.”  Hosted by Austin Walker (@austin_walker)  Featuring Ali Acampora (@ali_west), Janine Hawkins (@bleatingheart), Keith J Carberry (@keithjcarberry), and Andrew Lee Swan (@swandre3000) Produced by Ali Acampora and Austin Walker Music by Jack de Quidt (available on bandcamp) Text by Austin Walker Cover Art by Craig Sheldon (@shoddyrobot) You can buy City Planning Department right here: https://kaelandm.itch.io/city-plannin...

This episode carries content warnings for slavery and indentured servitude, kidnapping, discussion of taxidermy, blood, injury, physical harm, death, and the discussion of sports-related injuries. Here, in Somerset House, drama of the most unlikely kind is afoot.  With the family fortune withering away, the Solstice clan plays host to a pair of powerful Pact dignitaries: the data-magnate Exenceaster March and the notorious Admiral Bel'Agos Bloom.  They aim to draw March away from his loyalties to the Columnar with an exquisite retreat prepared by the house's staff,  featuring hunting, fine dining, and other entertainment. But one after another, the unpredictable has become the occuring: A terrible accident among the hedges. The discovery of an explosive device. And next, the return of an absentee member of the household…  Can Solstice House's staff turn the situation around and save the day? Or is something—like the mysterious, dark pall that surrounds the estate—due to break?

This episode carries content warnings for slavery and indentured servitude, kidnapping, discussion of taxidermy, animals bred to be hunted, blood, injury, physical harm, death, and the discussion of sports-related injuries. It is often noted that the Bilateral Commission (formerly the Curtain) is mostly comprised of people from Stels Kesh and Nideo, and likewise that the Pact is largely made up of Apostolosians and Columnar. Room is made for exceptions because, in many cases, such cases are all the more important. Thus could be the case of Exanceaster March, Columnar data magnate and long time friend of the (ever diminishing) Solstice family of Kesh. Today, the troubled aristocrats bring their powerful ally to their estate for a visit, during which they hope to persuade March to leave the Pact behind.  For the Solstice family, this could be everything they need to be catapulted back into the upper crust. For their servants, it will be just one more hellish event left for them to clean up after.

In de fed notulen lijkt het erop dat in 2023 de rente wellicht verder zal stijgen maar in ieder geval niet zullen gaan dalen. Dat heeft uiteraard consequenties voor de economische groei die wordt geraamd op 0,5% voor 2023. Dat dit percentage erg positief is ingeschat lijkt een veilige conclusie.  Intussen hebben de edelmetalen in 2022 eigenlijk prima gepresteerd.

Ondersteun deze klassen met een gift: https://eencursusinwonderen.org/doneerIII. Wie zichzelf beschuldigt1. Alleen wie zichzelf beschuldigt veroordeelt. Nu jij je voorbereidt op een keuze die tot andere resultaten leidt, is er allereerst iets dat je uit-en-te-na leren moet. Het moet een gewoontereactie worden die zo karakteristiek is voor alles wat je doet, dat het jouw primaire reactie wordt op elke verleiding en elke situatie die zich voordoet. Leer dit, en leer het goed, want hier wordt het uitstel van je geluk bekort met een tijdsspanne waarvan jij je geen voorstelling kunt maken. Je haat je broeder nooit om zijn zonden, maar alleen om die van jou. Welke vorm zijn zonden ook lijken aan te nemen, deze verhult slechts het feit dat jij gelooft dat ze de jouwe zijn en daarom een ‘gerechtvaardigde' aanval verdienen.2. Waarom zouden zijn zonden zonden zijn, als jij niet geloofde dat ze in jou niet kunnen worden vergeven? Waarom zijn ze in hem werkelijk, als jij niet geloofde dat ze jouw werkelijkheid zijn? En waarom val je ze overal aan, als het niet was omdat jij jezelf haat? Ben jij soms een zonde? Telkens wanneer je aanvalt, antwoord je met ‘ja', want door aan te vallen bevestig je dat je schuldig bent, en dat je moet geven naargelang je verdient. En wat kun je anders verdienen dan wat jij bent? Als je zelf niet geloofde dat je een aanval verdiende, zou het helemaal nooit in je opkomen iemand aan te vallen. Waarom zou je ook? Wat zou je er bij winnen? Wat zou het resultaat kunnen zijn dat jij wensen zou? “En hoe zou moord jou tot voordeel kunnen strekken?3. Zonden zitten in lichamen. Ze worden niet in denkgeesten waargenomen. Ze worden niet gezien als doelen, maar als daden. Lichamen handelen, denkgeesten niet. En daarom moet het lichaam opdraaien voor wat het doet. Het wordt niet als iets passiefs gezien wat jouw bevelen gehoorzaamt en uit zichzelf in het geheel niets doet. Als jij zonde bent, ben je een lichaam, want de denkgeest handelt niet. En intentie moet dan in het lichaam liggen, en niet in de denkgeest. Het lichaam moet dan zelfstandig opereren, en zichzelf motiveren. Als jij zonde bent sluit je de denkgeest in het lichaam op, en draag je zijn intentie over op zijn gevangenis, die in zijn plaats handelt. Een cipier volgt geen bevelen op, maar legt bevelen op aan de gevangene.4. Toch is het lichaam, niet de denkgeest, de gevangene. Het lichaam denkt geen gedachten. Het heeft niet de macht te leren, te vergeven of te onderwerpen. Het geeft geen bevelen waarnaar de denkgeest zich voegen moet, en stelt geen voorwaarden waaraan hij moet voldoen. Het houdt slechts de gewillige denkgeest gevangen die erin verblijven wil. Het wordt ziek op bevel van de denkgeest die zijn gevangene wil zijn. En het wordt oud en sterft, omdat die denkgeest ziek is in zichzelf. Leren is het enige dat verandering teweegbrengt. En dus zou het lichaam, waarin geen leerproces kan plaatsvinden, nooit kunnen veranderen, tenzij de denkgeest verkoos dat het lichaam in zijn verschijningsvormen verandert, om aan de bedoeling te beantwoorden die de denkgeest eraan geeft. Want de denkgeest kan leren, en daar wordt alle verandering teweeggebracht.5. De denkgeest die denkt dat hij een zonde is, heeft maar één doel: dat het lichaam de bron van zonde zou zijn, teneinde het in de gevangenis te houden die hij gekozen heeft en bewaakt, en waar hij zichzelf in vasthoudt als een slapende gevangene ten prooi aan de grommende honden van haat en kwaad, van ziekte en aanval, van pijn en ouderdom, en van lijden en verdriet. Hier worden de offergedachten bewaard, want hier regeert schuld, die beveelt dat de wereld moet zijn zoals hij: een plaats waar niets genade kan vinden en evenmin de vernietigende werking van de angst kan overleven, behalve in moord en dood. Want hier word jij tot zonde gemaakt, en zonde kan hen die vreugdevol en vrij zijn niet verdragen, want dat zijn de vijanden die de zonde dient te doden. In de dood wordt de zonde bewaard, en zij die denken dat ze zonde zijn, moeten sterven omwille van wat ze denken te zijn.6. Laten we blij zijn dat jij zult zien wat je gelooft, en dat het jou gegeven is te veranderen wat je gelooft. Het lichaam zal alleen maar volgen. Het kan jou nooit ergens heenleiden waar jij niet wilt zijn. Het waakt niet over je slaap, en mengt zich niet in je ontwaken. Bevrijd je lichaam uit deze gevangenschap, en je zult niemand als de gevangene zien van dat waaraan jij bent ontsnapt. Je zult je uitverkoren vijanden niet in de greep van schuld willen houden, noch degenen die jij als vrienden beschouwt geketend willen laten blijven aan de illusie van een veranderende liefde.7. De onschuldigen brengen vrijheid, in dankbaarheid voor hun bevrijding. En wat zij zien houdt hun vrijwaring in stand van gevangenschap en dood. Stel je denkgeest open voor verandering, en er zal geen oeroude straf van jouw broeder of van jou worden geëist. Want er is geen offer dat kan worden gevraagd, en er is geen offer dat kan worden gebracht, zo heeft God gezegd.

This episode carries content warnings for physical harm, death, and the discussion of sports-related injuries. Even as Stels Kesh and Apostolos began to fall into war, the in the year 1423 of the Perfect Millennium, the Divine Principality held the the Summer Passage of Arms on the world of Partizan, moon of Girandole. There, poets competed in verse, the Providence was run, biathletes strutted their stuff by land and by sea, and pilots wrestled their hollows against each other along the coastlines. In one such hollow was a grappler whose vision saw beyond the shore of that ill-fated moon. A man who dreamed of being something more than a athlete. A man who dreamed of being a superstar. This week on the Road to PALISADE: My Way Records Recovered from the Divine, Arbitrage Factions Principality Wrestling Association (PWA): The largest professional hollow wrestling organization in the Principality. Tours each Stel. The PWA's current active roster includes Caden "The Sensation" Davis (they/them), Vlad “Bone Daddy” Rivera (he/him), Jade “The Dentist” Suzuki (she/her), Brian Million Dollar Man” Johnson (he/him), Liam “The Beast” Petit (they/them), and Dash “City Slicker” Dubrovnik (they/them). The PWA also maintains a “special relationship” with the Divine Honor, who referees all matches for the control of the Belt of Honor. The Bilateral Intercession: This faction, made up primarily from Stel Nideo and Kesh assets, was formerly known as the Curtain. The rebranding comes as part of a “civil coup” performed by Cynosure Whitestar-Kesh. In a move that surprised no group more than the Curtain themselves, Cynosure spent years growing in confidence and power, until that intelligence organization could be once again reduced to a tool. Still defined by their traditionalism, they wield their control on culture, religion, and history as a weapon—and the extensive spy network for which they are named when those come up short. The Pact of Free States: While the Bilateral Intercession's name change reflects a shift in leadership and posture for the Curtain, the shift from “The Pact of Necessary Venture” to “The Pact of Free States” is simply the public acceptance of what was already widely understood to be true. Led in name by Dahlia, the Glorious Princept, and in day-to-day operation by senior members of Stels Apostolos and Columnar, the Pact paint themselves as liberal reformists whose aim is to increase the degree of autonomy in each of the Stels, such that they become in reality five separate nations. Persons Dogmatic Mettle (he/him): Former shoot combatant in real hollow sumo competitions and pilot of the fearsome Harvester, Mettle has turned his sights on the squared circle. Does he hope to obtain glory? To lift others to his heights? Or something else? Locations Deep Dish Steakhouse: A gimmick-driven bar-and-grill chain. I would call its fare repugnant, but being able to avoid such slop is one the benefits of my form, and unlike mortal minds, I would never lower myself to offer uninformed critique. The decor, though, is an absolute disaster.

Vandaag het gesprek met Carolien Nijhuis. Carolien is Managing Owner van de Nijhuis Group. In 14 jaar tijd is het bedrijf van een eenmanszaak uitgegroeid tot een volwaardig maakbedrijf in Winterswijk met een team van 30 vakmensen. Wij maken allerlei producten van natuurrubber en metalen veelal bestemd voor de voedingsmiddelenindustrie. Denk aan machinebouw en onderdelen van machines. Laten we beginnen… In gesprek met Carolien leerde ik: Je kan maar beter heel groot worden in een niche. De producten van Nijhuis gaan de hele wereld over. Ik zit rijke mensen rijker te maken, en aan de andere kant konden haar ouders wel wat hulp gebruiken. Je moet het niet in je hoofd hebben, maar het moet in je bedrijf zitten. Iedereen moet vervangbaar zijn. De stip op de horizon is vooral handig bij tegenslagen. Niet druk maken over de dingen die je niet in de hand hebt. Als ondernemer krijg je niet vaak complimenten. Als je wil groeien moet je als ondernemer los kunnen laten. Geen control freak zijn, maar wel in control zijn. Als je met Carolien werkt moet je je realiseren dat het altijd in beweging is. Continu leren staat in de kernwaarden van de Nijhuis Groep, naast open, eerlijk en respectvol met elkaar communiceren op basis van vertrouwen zodat mensen de autonomie pakken. "Stel je eens voor dat we hetzelfde belang hebben.", zegt Carolien tegen de medewerkers. De MT vergaderingen gaan niet zozeer over cijfers, maar vooral over de mensen. De lastigste uitdaging van Carolien, de wereld is zo mooi maar waarom ziet niet iedereen dat. De angst voor elkaar wegnemen met PPA analyses - gebaseerd op DISC. Het is belangrijk dat je tijd steekt in de ontwikkeling van je mensen als je wilt dat er een team staat dat wat voor elkaar over heeft. Diverse teams functioneren beter. Zelfreflectie is de belangrijkste kwaliteit die mensen kunnen ontwikkelen, net als eerlijk naar jezelf kunnen kijken zodat je dichter bij je gevoel kunt komen. Naar jezelf toe wat liever zijn en het leuk vinden om op ontdekkingstocht te gaan om aan jezelf te werken. Net als een tekort aan vakmensen, hebben we ook een tekort aan ondernemers die een bedrijf willen overnemen van de generatie die klaarstaat om met pensioen te gaan. Carolien besteed niet specifiek aandacht aan de SDGs, dat is gewoon wat we doen. Het is niet een doel op zich. De excel-cultuur van winstmaximalisatie, werkt niet. Zoals bijvoorbeeld dat het niet past om een school te ondersteunen op dat moment, want anders worden de targets niet gehaald. Als je meer kijkt als een familiebedrijf, meer op de lange termijn, dan is het niet erg dat je een jaar geen marge hebt gedraaid. Als je meer naar waardemaximalisatie kijkt, dan gaan je heel anders om met dit soort vraagstukken. Dan kun je op de langere termijn gezonder groeien en gezondere basis creëren. Dames, hou op met sorry zeggen. Doen mannen ook niet. Hoe blijf je als vrouw staan in een mannenwereld, en hoe blijf je vrouw. Het mag meer slagkracht krijgen door dingen te gaan doen. Begin niet te groot, maar begin.

This episode carries content warnings for the discussion of colonial violence, discussion of death from visual stimulus, and the discussion of industrial and workplace industries. For the last five millennia, the Divine Principality has expanded its reach across the stars. But in the Twilight Mirage, those 5,000 years were only felt as 500. For those in the Mirage, led by the Qui Err Coalition, life has been stable and if not utopian, then at least a type of living that is aspirational in only the best ways. But today, as the space station known as the Brink orbits towards the edge of the false nebula, those 5000 years come rushing in.  This week on the Road to Palisade: Orbital Pt. 1 Records Recovered from the Divine, Arbitrage Factions The Curtain of Divinity: For generations, the Curtain of Divinity operated in the shadows of the Principality, partly as intelligence agency, partly as shadow government. Now they have been dragged into the daylight, and serve as one of the two ruling factions of the whole Principality. Though there are some divisions along questions of secularity, humanism, and cultural taste, in general, leaders of the Curtain are conservative, traditionalist, and nationalistic. They seek the reunification of all five Stels and the permanence of the Divine Principality. Led, in public at least, by Cynosure Whitestar-Kesh, the Peaceful Princept. In fact, the Curtain has five divisions, each led by a ruthless individual known only by a codename: Silk (diplomacy), Damask (research & inquisition), Lace (military), Linen (economics), and Gabardine (espionage and collaboration). The Pact of Necessary Venture: As their (current) name suggests, the Pact began as a cooperative exploratory committee founded in the late 14th Century of the Perfect Millennium. They sought new territory to conquer, breaking an old taboo in the process, and inviting destruction and fracture. Which is appropriate, as their vision for the future is one where each Stel is granted more autonomy and independence—some even claim that they would see the Principality utterly destroyed and replaced by a loose affiliation of free states.  Despite this, the Pact are no radicals: While they want more independence from the Principality, they have little interest in shaking up the internal power structures of the Stels themselves. After all, their founders were all Elects, and though only two remain (Gallica, elect of the Divine Present, and Rye, elect of the divine Space), they are led by Dahlia, who serves as both Apokine and Glorious Princept. Qui Err Coalition: Comprised of the descendents (literal, metaphorical, and mystical) of the planet Quire's original people, the Qui Err Coalition is the de facto government of the Twilight Mirage.  Brink Proxy: The volunteers who function as mechanics, operators, janitors, and engineers for the Brink. Bureaucratic, but some tasks require such things. Orchard Syndicate: A group of gardeners, farmers, and their delivery unit. Specialize in oranges and hidden motivations. Devotion: A cultish organization that some suspect is responsible for those who have gone missing recently. Persons Cheal Pushy (he/him): While his single biggest influence on the Brink was the founding of the ever spreading Community Gardens, he's mostly known as the heart of the station, operating everyone's favorite dive bar and venue, Pushy's.  Mustard Red (she/her): A cyborg member of the Brink Proxy. A little paranoid, but perfectly tuned for a role in surveillance. Oh, and quite eager. A useful trait. Paris France (he/him): The Brink is a hub, with countless things moving through its halls and ports. Paris France is the person you go to when you want access to those things, even when you shouldn't have it. Deutsch Synchro a.k.a. Lament (she/her): A simple bartender at Pushy's. That's all. Certainly not an asset in play. Teleos Triton Tanager a.k.a. 3T (he/him): A idealist, a fool, and a musician with a following of “Troublemakers.” Grey Gloaming (she/her) and Demani Dusk (she/er): Most know these long past wives as the founders of the Brink. But from my perspective, they were interlopers in history. Grand Magnificent (he/him): An “artist” (read: weapons manufacturer) from five centuries ago. The picture of arrogance. He was at his best when he was honest about what he was. Locations Saboria: A world controlled by the Columnar which they “gifted” to a group of Ashen refugees fleeing the Curtain. A fiction, of course. The city of Harborview where the Ashen live is under constant surveillance. I do wonder, however, whether the Columnar know the irony of the trap they think they've laid. Articles The “Divine” Arbit: A machine that twists and spins and twirls in impossible to predict ways—making it a poison to prediction engines. To call it a Divine though. What a joke. Miscellany The Perennial Wave: Perennial is something like a god, or at least I think she imagines she is. Her wave is her arrogant whim, made manifest. Functionally infinite nano-particles, spread throughout the galaxy, hampering all technology except (curiously) Divines.  Hosted by Austin Walker (@austin_walker)  Featuring Ali Acampora (@ali_west), Keith J Carberry (@keithjcarberry), Jack de Quidt (@notquitereal), and Sylvi Bullet (@GODSNEXTMARTYR) Produced by Ali Acampora (@ali_west) Music by Jack de Quidt (available on bandcamp) Text by Austin Walker Cover Art by Craig Sheldon (@shoddyrobot) You can purchase Orbital at  https://mouseholepress.itch.io/orbital

This episode carries content warnings for discussion of displaced and unhoused communities. The news is sour. The revolutonaries known as Millennium Break will be no one's savior today. The Ashen of Saboria, of Harborview, have only each other as their protectors. And as they huddle below, sheltered in the shuddering mountain, the enemy arrives from above. The mission is clear in both objective and absurdity: Zark Vapor, Teasel Fauna, Martia Häske, and Narmine Te'Ketch must simply hold the Pact at bay long enough for a miracle.  This week on the Road to PALISADE: Lancer Pt. 3 Records Recovered from the Divine, Arbitrage Factions Hypha & Ashen: The former were a culture of galactic nomads, guided by a paranatural force called the Strand which they could commune with using technological devices built into their antlers. The latter are their descendants, their routes broken by the Principality's expansions and occupations, their culture ripped from them.  Stel Columnar: Famously “courted” by the growing Principality many generations ago, this nation of humanoid synthetics traded freedom for the prestige and security of the Principality. They hid behind imperial walls and pursued the Future, pushing boundaries not only in technology, but in art, commerce, and war. I suppose I can call them cousins, but not with much fondness. Today, they share righteous screeds and fight for the return of something like democracy as part of the Pact of Necessary Venture. What a comedy.  The Curtain of Divinity: For generations, the Curtain of Divinity operated in the shadows of the Principality, partly as intelligence agency, partly as shadow government. Now they have been dragged into the daylight, and serve as one of the two ruling factions of the whole Principality. Though there are some divisions along questions of secularity, humanism, and cultural taste, in general, leaders of the Curtain are conservative, traditionalist, and nationalistic.

Narmine “Ketch” Te'ketch (he/him): Former two-bit criminal, current whaler, and pilot of The Captain. Martilla “Journeyman” Häske (she/her): Professional soldier, Pact true-believer, and pilot of the Under the Radar. Kaliope Flow (she/her): The de facto leader of Harborview. Zeke Minuet (he/him) & Deanthe (they/them): A pair of researchers into ancient Hypha culture. Dirwin, Elaina, Stas: Strati that had been kidnapped by the Pact of Necessary Venture from Harborview. Now rescued, and en route towards a rendezvous point. Locations Saboria: A world controlled by the Columnar which they “gifted” to a group of Ashen refugees fleeing the Curtain. A fiction, of course. The city of Harborview where the Ashen live is under constant surveillance. I do wonder, however, whether the Columnar know the irony of the trap they think they've laid. Articles The Portcullis System & The Divine Space: Huge, distended hexagonal gates that float at the edge of key systems throughout the Principality. Once a week—or more often, if one has the keys to the kingdom—each one connects to one other, forming a faster-than-light highway that serves as the logistical backbone of the galaxy. Built by Orion, the technology is a perversion of that used by some of the earliest Divines, tens of thousands of years.  Miscellany Stratus: A poorly articulated, unanchored, catch-all term that's far outlived its usefulness. In some eras, a “stratus” (plural: strati) is said to have special powers of empathy. In others, they have a sort of digital telepresence.

This episode carries content warnings for discussion of kidnapping. In the city of Harborview, on the world of Saboria, a group of Ashen refugees tried to make new lives for themselves. In the process, they connected to the history of their people—the ancient Hypha—and rediscovered an ancient art: the creation of strati. This was all it took for the Pact of Necessary Venture to close the snare around them. Now it falls to a group of incongruous and infighting pilots to stand against the Pact, get the strati to safety, and forge a future for the Ashen. This week on the Road to PALISADE: Lancer Pt. 2 Records Recovered from the Divine, Arbitrage Factions Hypha & Ashen: The former were a culture of galactic nomads, guided by a paranatural force called the Strand which they could commune with using technological devices built into their antlers. The latter are their descendants, their routes broken by the Principality's expansions and occupations, their culture ripped from them.  Stel Columnar: Famously “courted” by the growing Principality many generations ago, this nation of humanoid synthetics traded freedom for the prestige and security of the Principality. They hid behind imperial walls and pursued the Future, pushing boundaries not only in technology, but in art, commerce, and war. I suppose I can call them cousins, but not with much fondness. Today, they share righteous screeds and fight for the return of something like democracy as part of the Pact of Necessary Venture. What a comedy.  The Curtain of Divinity: For generations, the Curtain of Divinity operated in the shadows of the Principality, partly as intelligence agency, partly as shadow government. Now they have been dragged into the daylight, and serve as one of the two ruling factions of the whole Principality. Though there are some divisions along questions of secularity, humanism, and cultural taste, in general, leaders of the Curtain are conservative, traditionalist, and nationalistic. They seek the reunification of all five Stels and the permanence of the Divine Principality. Led, in public at least, by Cynosure Whitestar-Kesh, the Peaceful Princept. In fact, the Curtain has five divisions, each led by a ruthless individual known only by a codename: Silk (diplomacy), Damask (research & inquisition), Lace (military), Linen (economics), and Gabardine (espionage and collaboration). The Pact of Necessary Venture: As their (current) name suggests, the Pact began as a cooperative exploratory committee founded in the late 14th Century of the Perfect Millennium. They sought new territory to conquer, breaking an old taboo in the process, and inviting destruction and fracture. Which is appropriate, as their vision for the future is one where each Stel is granted more autonomy and independence—some even claim that they would see the Principality utterly destroyed and replaced by a loose affiliation of free states.  Despite this, the Pact are no radicals: While they want more independence from the Principality, they have little interest in shaking up the internal power structures of the Stels themselves. After all, their founders were all Elects, and though only two remain (Gallica, elect of the Divine Present, and Rye, elect of the divine Space), they are led by Dahlia, who serves as both Apokine and Glorious Princept. Persons Zark “Banjax” Vapor (he/they): Mechanic, Harborview contractor, and pilot of the Ill Portent Teasel “Derby” Fauna (he/him): Entertainer, sharpshooter, and pilot of the Dressage. Narmine “Ketch” Te'ketch (he/him): Former two-bit criminal, current whaler, and pilot of The Captain. Martilla “Journeyman” Häske (she/her): Professional soldier, Pact true-believer, and pilot of the Under the Radar. Kaliope Flow (she/her): The de facto leader of Harborview. Zeke Minuet (he/him) & Deanthe (they/them): A pair of researchers into ancient Hypha culture. Dirwin, Elaina, Stas: Strati that had been kidnapped by the Pact of Necessary Venture from Harborview. Now rescued, and en route towards a rendezvous point. Locations Saboria: A world controlled by the Columnar which they “gifted” to a group of Ashen refugees fleeing the Curtain. A fiction, of course. The city of Harborview where the Ashen live is under constant surveillance. I do wonder, however, whether the Columnar know the irony of the trap they think they've laid. Articles The Portcullis System & The Divine Space: Huge, distended hexagonal gates that float at the edge of key systems throughout the Principality. Once a week—or more often, if one has the keys to the kingdom—each one connects to one other, forming a faster-than-light highway that serves as the logistical backbone of the galaxy. Built by Orion, the technology is a perversion of that used by some of the earliest Divines, tens of thousands of years.  Miscellany Stratus: A poorly articulated, unanchored, catch-all term that's far outlived its usefulness. In some eras, a “stratus” (plural: strati) is said to have special powers of empathy. In others, they have a sort of digital telepresence.

For the Hypha and Ashen refugees who make it their home, the city of Harborview on the world of Saboria represents possibility. As they fled from the Curtain, Stel Columnar reached out to offer them haven. A place on a world of their own to rebuild. A material gift, “proving” the Pact's commitment to reform. And for some time, the community of Harborview was allowed to flourish. But today, that time has ended. Some of their most precious residents have been kidnapped. And as it often does, saving Harborview and its people now falls to a band with little more than this community holding them together.   This week on the Road to PALISADE: Lancer Pt. 1 Records Recovered from the Divine, Arbitrage Factions Hypha & Ashen: The former were a culture of galactic nomads, guided by a paranatural force called the Strand which they could commune with using technological devices built into their antlers.

This episode carries content warnings for violence, death, and colonization.  For the first few years of the war, those in the central depths of Nideo space felt safe. In order to reach them, the Pact would first have to push through an unthinkable amount of territory—much of it well defended. What they did not expect was an Apostolosian sneak attack arriving through the deep space that separates two galactic arms. And when they arrived, it was not simply an invasion. It was an invitation to a morbid race: Who would conquer Palisade—and the Twilight Mirage Beyond—first.  At the forefront of this conflict, two pilots arose. This is their story. This week on the Road to Palisade: Last Shooting Records Recovered from the Divine, Arbitrage Factions Stel Nideo: WIth origins in the long lost Twilight Mirage, Stel Nideo are architects of our current era, dread controllers of the Present. Along with shaping mass media, popular culture, and educational standards, they now operate both Received and Progressive Asterism, the former run by the corrupt Cycle and the latter by the grotesque puppet of the lost prophet Gur Sevraq. These priests, pop idols, and patriotic poster children are largely aligned with the Curtain of Divinity. Stel Orion: For hundreds of thousands of years, Stel Orion—under countless names and forms—has repeated a cycle of exploitation and revolution. Competing spirits of individualism and camaraderie ebb and flow, but industry remains. Is it any wonder that it remains associated with the raw breadth of Space itself? Currently, Orion is at war with itself, with countless small factions not only differing in position on the larger civil war in the Principality, but also on many additional issues like wealth, religion, and culture. Stel Apostolos: An ancient people, ever obsessed with external conquest and internal freedom, and utterly uninterested in understanding their own contradictions. They are dedicated to the pursuit of forward Motion, and I suppose I can respect such bullheaded devotion. It is, at the very least, not boring. They are the meat and muscle of the Pact of Necessary Venture. The Curtain of Divinity: For generations, the Curtain of Divinity operated in the shadows of the Principality, partly as intelligence agency, partly as shadow government. Now they have been dragged into the daylight, and serve as one of the two ruling factions of the whole Principality.

Seeks to restore his family's name by any means necessary. Dahlia (they/them): The self-proclaimed “Glorious Princept” and Apokine of Apostolos has the support of the Pact of Venture, yet seems more concerned with winning the war against the Branched than attending to the civil war inside of the Principality. Dahlia is the elect not only of Integrity but also Commitment. A feat, a folly, or both?

This episode carries content warnings for violence, displacement, insects, and a  brief description of a corpse.  The Divine Fealty knew what they had seen instantly, identifying it in something before or beyond language. Appropriate, since the Twilight Mirage, once its home, had always been more than just a simple place or a proper noun. It did not matter if their elect, Veronique, could understand what they'd seen in this way, only that she would support Fealty in what must be done. And so, an escape. And so, a kingdom among debris. And so, a kidnapping. And so, a confrontation between Divines. Now wounded, the two Anchors float back in the direction they came from, drawing ever closer to the purple dot in the distance.    This week on Friends at the Table: The Road to PALISADE: HOUNDs Pt. 2 Records Recovered from the Divine, Arbitrage Factions The Divine Principality: Stitched together thousands of years ago from the remains of the Divine Free States and the Principality of Kesh, it is largest empire in the history of the MIlky Way Galaxy. Even now, divided against itself, any subdivision of its arms stretches further than any kingdom or confederation ever has before. An utter failure.  Stel Kesh: Among the oldest operating powers in the stars. Devoted to the Past even though they've long lost control of the Divine who shares its name. Snobbish historians, ineffective parliamentarians, and stubborn reactionaries. Kesh is generally aligned with the Curtain of Divinity.  Stel Nideo: WIth origins in the long lost Twilight Mirage, Stel Nideo are architects of our current era, dread controllers of the Present.

Millennium Break: Terrorists, thieves, and revolutionaries. Founded on the moon of Partizan in 1423-1424 PM. A wrench in the wheel, a fly in the ointment. Critical in pushing the Principality into chaos. Now spreading dissidence through the galaxy. Their manifesto, such as it is, is thus:  We will help those displaced by the war. We will claim supplies only when it adds losses to the ledgers of the unjust. Free and fair elections will be held every two years. Burn thrones, build tables. When we provide for ourselves, we can provide for others. We will not turn our back on allies in need. If we must play their game, make sure to bloody their noses. When we reach the edge, we will Leap. Look sick as shit.  The words of children. Persons Veronique (she/they): Elect of Fealty. A loyalist. A protector. A runner, in a previous life.
