Masthead of the paper.
Beric'ht Talossan is a current Talossan newspaper, founded by Sir Alexandreu Davinescu. Sir C. M. Siervicül, Dr. Txec dal Nordselva, and C. Carlüs Xheraltescu are staff writers, while Ma la Mha is a feature contributor. There are two staff cartoonists, both anonymous, who go by the pseudonyms "Elo Cutor" and "Eric S. Mildew." Beric'ht is an affiliate of the Talossan Press Association.

The paper was founded on 14 Mar 2014/XXXV with a staff of three. It publishes a new issue every other Sunday morning. It has been published regularly since its founding, except for a planned break every sixth issue. The average length of each issue of Beric'ht is about seven to eight pages. The paper is not only the first Talossan newspaper to publish on a regular schedule since the demise of Støtanneu, but also the first instance of any Talossan media successfully running a paid advertising service. The nominal fee for advertising was initially set against the cost of becoming an official "Supporter of Talossa" via a donation to the nation's coffers, with subsequent revenues being collected for distribution to staff.

The advertised cost of Beric'ht is 1ℓ, but to date this cost has been waived and the publication has been provided free of charge. The paper regularly employs gimmicks to expand its readership, heavily promoting its subscription service to new citizens, releasing issues early to subscribers, and generally making a nuisance of itself. Beric'ht bills itself as "the first draft of history."
