Civil Unrest on Omega

Commdor November 27, 2012 User blog:Commdor

Following in the footsteps of the Conspiracy Accountability League site that preceded Mass Effect 3: Leviathan's release, BioWare has started two Twitter accounts as communication feeds for the Cerberus occupation force on Omega and the rebelling Talons gang on the eve of Mass Effect 3: Omega's launch. Currently, the Tweets are focusing on the Talons' attempt to free some civilians from Cerberus's clutches, while Cerberus transmits encrypted orders among propaganda announcements.

I've posted all of the current messages below. Encrypted messages are followed by their deciphered forms in italics (Cerberus uses the ROT13 cipher).
