Interruption at Hutt Night

March 15, 2012

Reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide attended the latest public audience with the Hutt Council on Nar Shaddaa. It progressed normally enough until a chemical attack sent everyone scattering.

Nar Shaddaa: Once again the Hutt Council held their periodic audience with the public to hear concerns and new trade opportunities. Shaka and Belutric the Hutts were in attendance while Shaka’s majordomo Morrigan hosted the event.

Kaelinn X with other Leviathan Consortium members before the Hutts

First to come before the Hutts was Kaelinn X from the Pallas Athena space station and head of the Leviathan Consortium. She came to informe the Hutt that the entire space station had successfully been moved into orbit around Nar Shaddaa. SHuttle service has also been put into place between the surface and the station running on an hourly basis. Kaelinn was also happy to report that all tariffs and taxes had been paid in full and the station is ready to trade with Nar Shaddaa. She also informed the council that the embassy was ready for them to visit and start to utilise.

Sihivus Verne speaking with the Hutts

Next up was Sihivus Verne, leader of the Imperious. The first matter she brought up was that an agreement had been reached for Hutt ships to be able to dock at her ports on Ord Mantell, supposedly without tariffs. Shaka confirmed that they would reciprocate with her ships on Nar Shaddaa. Secondly she requested to be a judge at any Nar Shaddaa pageants being held. One had been held several months ago, but the Hutts agreed she could judge at any future ones.

A gas attack begins pouring into the casino

As people continued to talk about the pageant and the other guests were vying for their chance to speak with the Hutts, the casino suddenly became engulfed with a toxic vapour. As people began reaching for breathers and making their way out, those not quick enough found it extremely painful to breath the rancid gas which also caused burning of the skin. Hutt security managed to get everyone out alive, though many had to be rushed to the medical facility with severe stomach and breathing problems from the gas.

Pursuers were unable to catch up with the droid who even escaped the speed of the holocam

As of yet, no one has taken responsibility for the gas attack and details are scarce. However, a droid was seen moving away from the casino and was chased, though at this time it’s believed he escaped. The model was similar to those to those used during the attack of Shaka and Morrigan’s party where Metus Imperia’s name was already rumoured. Also the attacked referred to “adjudicators”, one of the lead rank of the Metus Imperia. But they have made nor announcement to being involved. GNN will continue coverage of the investigation.
