The regularly scheduled programming of the Galactic News Network suddenly turns to static, followed shortly by an override of video footage.
Darth Infestus, Hand of the Emperor, interrupts GNN’s regularly scheduled programming to bring the citizens of the Galaxy this broadcast:
“Citizens of the Republic, listen and listen closely, for I must warn you.
You and your representatives will soon discover that resisting the Sith is a futile endeavour. The Dark Side cannot be suppressed; the flames of conflict that force all of us to evolve are inextinguishable.
Unfortunately for you, Light, no matter how bright, will always find itself surrounded by an infinity of Darkness. It is an unbreakable law of nature. So it has been since the dawn of time, and so it will remain for all eternity.
Continue your provocations, and they will be answered with merciless violence. I promise you, by the Emperor’s will, I shall summon an ocean of death and flood your cities with waves of terror if necessary. Perhaps tomorrow, perhaps the day after tomorrow, or perhaps years from now. To someone who has seen what I have seen, months are as days, and days are but fleeting seconds. My patience is limitless… Your demise is certain.
Choose your course of action wisely. It is not too late to atone for your mistakes… yet.
Order or Chaos, decide your fate.”
A very nervous-looking Xera D’Ukal appears behind her desk looking back at the video being displayed as it fades away.
We apologize to our viewers for the technical difficulties. We will now resume our regularly scheduled programming!

GNN reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide met up with UrZuric on his quest to rescue Lady Zav.
Our previous encounters with UrZuric was when he was head of the ODSL (Order of Dark Sith Lords) who had taken control of territory on several worlds around the galaxy. At that time he was known as Darth Oblivion. However as we spoke with UrZuric on Oricon, now it was clear he was more like himself when we spoke with him while he was head of the OJO on Onderon.
UrZuric gave an explanation. The leader of the ODSL had been a clone of him, which he recently killed on Coruscant to bring his imperial expansions to an end. With the death of their leader the ODSL seems to have come to an end as well. This incident, he said, was the result of of his interactions with Master Moonsoo of the KOJ several moons ago that left his mind split. Lady Zav tried to “cure” Zuric by cloning him but because of the impending destruction of the OJO the process wasn’t perfected leaving the clone who would become the head of the ODSL and the real UrZuric who was taken to Voss.
Lady Zav herself was defeated by the clone and reborn as Lady Zyrah who co-ruled the ODSL. At the destruction of the ODSL Zyrah fled with the what was left of the dark council to reform the New Order of the Sith, but was recently kidnapped by an entity best described as a Dread Master. Though the entities reasons aren’t known at this time.
UzZuric finally finding peace in his mind on Voss, though leaving him separated from force is now on a quest to free his once love. Helping him is the remainder of the New Order of the Sith and his son Xahertsa. He also hopes to gain support from the Jedi, though has un-easy truce with them since he feels they dropped the ball to help Zav or the OJO previously. How this will end is anyone’s guess and what the plans of this new entity are only time will tell.”

A reporter of the Galactic News met the Robes of the Hands in Korriban.
Korriban: The Robes of the Hand (ROTH) have recently joined the Imperial Inquisition and explained their position. Their leader, Cyprus Talon, said the robes are training the Inquisition Students. Their purpose is to create a new Sith Empire. He disdained the Sith Empire in Krayus that he was formely part of, claiming they had not “the knowledge or power to become the true Sith Empire.”
Darth Talon explained the Sith had hunted the Jedi since eons, seeking a perfect world without conflict and under their rule. The Inquisition will continue this policy and those opposing to their view of “peace” will be crushed. Recently they raided the Jedi academy of Yavin 4 to capture old artifacts.

Following the fights on Yavin IV, GNN reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide spoke with the Sith order involved in the attack.
“In Deep Space: Aboard a large flagship, members of the organization known as the Imperial Inquisition spoke with us following their campaign on Yavin IV. Making themselves known to the galaxy now, the Imperial Inquisition is the umbrella group of several factions. including the Sith Serpentine Order, the Sith academy known as the ROTH, the Grand Maelstrom Armada, and the Imperial Corps known as the Imperial Enclave along with a special forces legion known as the Valor Legionaries. These factions make up the Imperial Inquisition who claim to be the only true Sith left in the Galaxy.
To back up their claim the have amassed an impressive force of troops and Sith warriors who are backed by a large navy, which they intend to unleash on the galaxy in their bid for total conquest. They plan to start with traditional Sith areas along with other territories they claim belong to their ancestors but will then continue with their campaign to bring the entire galaxy under their control.
Beginning their campaign were the missions on Yavin IV to reclaim artifacts from the Jedi the Inquisition claim rightfully belong to the Sith. Following a conflict with the Jedi, a conflict the Inquisition claims to have won, several artifacts were first reported as taken. The Inquisition even backed these assertions stating they had the artifacts in custody and they were currently being studied. However, other reports from the fight indicate that the Jedi along with a Gray Jedi order were able to reclaim the major artifacts, so at this time its unclear exactly what was taken.
Also reports indicate that a prisoner was taken from Yavin IV, and assertion that the Inquisition backed once again and claimed to have a Jedi in their custody. He will be placed on trial for his actions against the Inquisition though his current condition is unknown as his custody was classified.
As the Inquisition makes their presence known, it is very likely that further campaigns will continue to be conducted at the Jedi and other forces including Sith organizations that the Inquisition concludes to be on the wrong path such as the orders currently stationed on Byss. They plan to conquer these, according to them, “fake” Sith, though if they denounce their ways they will be brought back into the fold. The upcoming weeks will tell what the effect on the Galaxy will be by this war machine as it moves from system to system.

Reporters of the Galactic News
A Sith group spread over Jedi academy of Yavin 4. Originally some Jedi and allies were present, but beside a light opposition they withdrew to other facilities. Speaking for the group, Darth Hellius asserted the Serpentine Order had “successfully crushed the Jedi Order on Yavin.” They wanted to recover artifacts that would be their but were held by the Jedi. The only way they saw to get them back was to challenge the Jedi.
A elder Jedi tried to block them because his Jedi vows and having been pained in the past by those Sith. His attempt however failed and he was captured after a fight. Other sith were seen in the library where the artifacts are usually stored. Combats amplified when people came in to rescue the captive near the meditation area, damaging it severely. Under the shock of the attack, one of the Sith was wounded, albeit they were able to leave in order, probably with some of their catches.

A reporter of Galactic News visited the Kessel Gate under renovation.
Kessel Gate: The asteroid in the Kessel sector known as the Gate was seized by the planetary government due to tax issue with the Gate’s original investor Kaelinn X. A trial is still planned, but the authorities already started to invest in the asteroid’s renovation. According to Sergeant Major Po Vexe, the government understood this asteroid was an important stop and military position for the planet.
A new lower hanger with a repair facility and an adjacent duty-free shop and an alchemist shop have been set to attract the travellers. The rebuilt is financed by Kessel. Expectantly, they will be refunded by the income of this facilities and the asteroid’s own industry. It indeed has a droid factory and yet closed mines. The mines are currently infested by large bugs despite the efforts voluntary spacers had made to chase them away.
In the upper area of the asteroid still stands the Rocket Down cantina. It’s now surrounded by decorations and small garden. Also a new club, the StarLight, was set up to relax in security. All travellers and businessmen are welcome if they respect the Kessel laws.
