TNN (PC/NPC Corporation)
« on: December 10, 2016, 03:51:39 am »
Company Name: Terran News Network
Intent: Keeping you informed, galaxywide
Location: Headquartered on Terra, but with affiliates wherever there's a story.
Affiliation: Terrans, generally
Worth: Whatever advertising revenue they can pull, plus the occasional "donation"


Description & History:

The advent of FTL travel was an exciting time for humanity, with a whole galaxy of possibilities opened up to them, and countless new things to see and experience. With it came faster than light communication, but for a brief time, there was a void of readily available information and news accessable by the average, unaffiliated citizen of rapidly expanding Terran collection of systems. TNN, an amalgamation of the largest of the pre-existing media companies, stepped in to fill this void, and did so at a perfect time to capitalise on it.

While they are far from the only pan-galactic media company in existence, they are, without a doubt, the most successful, and possibly the only one that is present literally anywhere humanity is to be found - it is jokingly said that their reporters, broadcasters, and other affiliates usually arrive at a new colony before the colonists. This wide-spread presence has allowed them to amass a fair bit of wealth via advertising opportunities. Though many companies may not care how well known their products are on some backwater rimworld, in the competitive marketplace of well-established planets, constant and proper exposure can make a difference between being the vendor of choice, and just another option.

In addition to this, a fair portion of their income is derived from less legitimate sources. As has always been the case, public opinion is often easily led by the way events are presented, and the persistent journalists of TNN have often managed to discover dirty little secrets that could harm a corporation's reputation, or destroy a politician's career. While this occasionally results in the mysterious disappearance of TNN staff, there are always more to take their place despite the potential danger of being a TNN reporter in this brave new galaxy, and many entities have long concluded that it is easier to simply make a "small donation" to the network than it is to silence them with force.

Accusations of partisan espionage and subliminal population direction are, of course, completely unfounded, and the TNN goes to great lengths to combat such claims.

Having a big news company makes sense.

It's designed to be a GM storytelling device as much as anything.
Gone. Cheers guys.

There is probably no more terrible instance of enlightenment than the one in which you discover your father is a man with human flesh.
