The Emperor's Eye: The Official Magazine of the IISS

Maintained by the personal office it provides humor, stories, and such like for serving scouts. One of the favorite sections is the "declassifieds" which comes from actual tales and records from serving scouts decades before, that have recently been reduced in security level to the point where ordinary citizens are allowed to read. Some writings in the Emperors Eye have been granted status alongside the finest Imperial literature.

It being impossible to maintain one Imperium wide issue, there is one for each subsector. The staff are usually retired scouts, and the Magazine is maintained by scouts and their families. However this is no rule and many non-scouts have contributed, including Noble Patrons.

The Emperor's Eye of Lunion and The Forkost Bistand: magazine of the Confederation Patrol, regularly exchange articles and letters to each other's editors of varied amiabilty. This is idealistically described as a gentlemanly respect between professionals on opposing sides and there is something to that. In fact though, it is not widely known but the Lunion IISS often acts as an ally of the Patrol. Though their stereotypical relation is of pickets stalking each other, the mutual needs often requires them to cooperate in the sharing of intelligence about local disorder and occasionally engage in a joint covert intervention.
