|“||Hey there, action, adventure, comedy, romance, adventure, action, fun, and adventure fans! This is the Editor. Who am I? Don't ask so many questions. Because you're holding a copy of the most action-adventurous periodical in the known galaxy:
TALES FROM BEYOND THE FRINGE!
You have been selected to take advantage of a suspiciously good offer - a free subscription to TFBTF locked to your personal datachron! The only catch? As part of the Nexus Challenge Subscription Program, you'll get to collect the keys to unlock each issue yourself! Here's how it works:
1. In every region of Nexus, you'll find datapads containing one piece of an exciting Tales from Beyond the Fringe story. Each piece of the TFBTF file forms a part of the decryption code for that story. This complimentary issue unlocked only three keys, but full issues may require seven or more!
2. Collect all of the available keys in that region to unlock that issue of TALES FROM BEYOND THE FRINGE! (You can keep track of how many keys you've unlocked by checking the handy "Lore" tab of your standard-issue datachron device.)
3. Once they're unlocked, your issues of TFBTF will be available on your datachron for you to read and reference whenever you like!
4. Having trouble finding all of the keys? That's why the subscription is free! Well, that, and I like sticking it to the suits at my corporate publisher. So readers are encouraged to discuss and share the locations of TFBTF keys so that everyone can enjoy the thrilling narratives that make up every issue of this spectacularly popular publication.
WARNING: Many TFBTF fans have contacted the Editor concerning the "journals" which you may find scattered across the surface of the planet Nexus and elsewhere. Please note that although these journals may superficially resemble TALES FROM BEYOND THE FRINGE! components in some cases, they are not the same! TALES FROM BEYOND THE FRINGE! is not responsible for any mental or physical trauma that may result from you reading journals that do not belong to you, nor can we offer refunds for things you found just lying around. For that matter, there can be no refunds for this complimentary subscription to TALES FROM BEYOND THE FRINGE! as you cannot refund a total cost of zero.
So thanks for reading, everyone. We'll see you...BEYOND THE FRINGE!
(This complimentary introductory issue has been produce in accordance with Dominion legal code, with the official approval of the emperor, his ministers, and his governors. Scions save Myrcalus!)
