The Confederacy and Republic Meet for Talks

June 16, 2012

A GNN correspondent attended a public New Confederacy meeting where Republic officials were also invited to talk about the two sides differences, the event outline in part one of the story. Later Reporters interviewed a padawan witness to the event and even the Confederacy president himself about the matter in part two of this series.

The awaited public session of the New Confederacy was held in Trandosha invited by the President Voren Redden. Security was tight as Republic Senators and officials were escorted to the Senate building. The envoy was made up of Senator Shan Connell from Bengat, Lady Catherine Umino of the Kalway Order of Jedi (KOJ), Lady Sha’ira from the Dantooine Jedi Enclave (DJE), padawan Linnefer from the New Jedi Order (NJO), and others. They joined the large gathering that had come to view the senate meeting and were brought forward to talk about the concerns over the ware with President Redden. Weapons were not allowed except those carried by Confederacy officials and security, except the Jedi were allowed to keep their sabers.

City of Hsskhor, Trandosha

The President started by opening up with everyone stating their name and allegiance, though the crowd was so large, it was hard to recall any particular person. The Republic officials introduced themselves a group, while others such as Xan Qenadius stated he was representing the Trandosha Jedi Refuge (TJR) while other said they had come on their own device.

The Republic envoy were the first allowed to speak. Senator Connell stated they had come for peace talks to understand the nature of the war from the Confederacy’s view better. The President stated the war had begun when a Death Watch member had been killed by the KOJ and his body kept. Lady Umino vehemently opposed this view of what had transpired, stating it was the Death Watch member that had killed not the Jedi. The viewpoints were argued back and forth until the President asked to move on to other matters.

Senator Connell then asked about slavery on Trandosha, many having alluded to the Trandoshan people being slaves themselves to the Confederacy. The President stated that the Confederacy does not condone slavery and that it was the Trandoshan people who were keeping slaves in secret not the other way around. As Senator Connell began to talk about grievances against the Republic, another one began to speak up against them.

Celtru Caar from a world known as Nin in Wild Space, came to make his grievances known against the Jedi and Sith who he stated brought destruction to countless worlds through their conflicts. Mrs. Connell continued her talk with the President and Senate on atrocities visited upon the Republic by the Confederacy including several attacks Republic worlds, 6 murders on Coruscant and the killing of the Vice Chancellor’s double during an assassination attempt on her. The President stated he wasn’t aware of any of the murders or conflicts other than the murder of the Vice-Chancellor by a rogue Confederate agent who was later tried and executed for the crime. Mrs. Connell continued describing the other murders, kidnappings, and tortures in more detail that supposedly the Confederacy inflicted upon Republic citizens. She ended her discussion on the matter of the bounties placed upon Republic heads.

President Redden continued to state most of those atrocities were done by rogue agents who had subsequently been tried for their crimes. Furthermore the bounties were placed as a part of the war effort, but the members captured were being treated well and with respect. He even agreed to release the latest capture back tot he Republic and allow officials to come see the condition of other DJE prisoners. Xan of the TJR proposed his order to be mediators between the two groups. As these talks continued the atmosphere in the room became more intense and Celtru Caar became more vocal until he pulled out a weapon and fired on Senator Connell, though he missed and was quickly mortally wounded from fire from the President himself and security personnel.

After order was restored the Senator invited the Confederacy to voice any of their grievances. Their only concern was about he Metus Imperia and their relationship to the Republic. The Senator stated the Republic has no partnership with the Imperia nor hired them for any mission. After concerns were settled that the TJR was working for the Confederacy or the Republic, they were chosen to mediators in upcoming peace talks between the two sides. This was scheduled for a later time even amongst continued verbal altercations between both sides, though no more physical incidents occurred and the meeting peacefully came to an end.

GNN well try and cover the future peace talks and wish good luck to both sides that something well be made from them.

    “The President stated the war had begun when a Death Watch member had been killed by the KOJ and his body kept.”
    That’s very funny you said that, speaking about Kyr’tsad. Let’s be honest not hypocrytes and confess..that Kyr’tsad who was killed on Yavin 4 wasn’t innocent. We, all know their beliefs, we all know he was sent in a MILLITARY mission on tht moon and only the presence of Kyr’tsad is an act of war.So, again, , who started the war?

    Well the death watch member that was killed turned out to be a traitor, so you view point in invalid, he was helping the jetti with what ever he was doing, all i know is he was aiding the republic and was killed… so i ask you if he was a traitor and did not follow our ways.. how did we start this again?

      It’s more easy to say this things now when he’s dead, isn’t it?
      Those who are dead can’t come and tell us what really happened.Well, it was prooved, if you talk to Kyr’tsad or the walls , it’s the same.
      Ardeth laughs and switched of his connection with holonet

    On the slavery issue, I would like to point out that Trandoshans embrace slavery. Their religion revolves around hunting, slaving, and so forth.

    The Confederacy does not enslave its member worlds or cultures, though we don’t force them to give up their beliefs, culture, and so forth either.

    There are slaves and slavery on Trandosha, just as there is on -many- Republican worlds and Hutt worlds.
    The Confederacy will not intervene on such matters, especially considering it would be intolerant of Trandoshan culture. We of the Confederacy do not condone slavery, but we will not take your beliefs from you simply because they aren’t ours.

      That is because the population of Trandosha aren’t actually Trandoshans! I think its kind of goofy, and was telling the NC guys to RP more Trandoshans, but they of course ignored me.

      The Confederacy doesn’t enslave its worlds because they simply can’t in SWRP. Its not something that can -really- be done. The concept is good, but its not possible in SWRP. In my opinion of course. It would be intrigued to be proven wrong on this point.

      The New Confederacy, from what I have seen serves no purpose. The group has no goal, nor drive to do much of anything.

        (( All comments on this site are in character. That comment was in character. I’m a Trandosha admin. We encourage people to play Trandoshans, but not many people other than myself do. We’re currently looking into seeing if we can get a sculpted or mesh Trandoshan av made to be given as a freebie at Dosha. ))

      “On the slavery issue, I would like to point out that Trandoshans embrace slavery. Their religion revolves around hunting, slaving, and so forth.”

      Yes, if something is part of one’s religion, that makes it okay no matter how immoral it is.

      “The Confederacy does not enslave its member worlds or cultures, though we don’t force them to give up their beliefs, culture, and so forth either.”

      And what if a slave’s belief is that slavery is immoral and he has a right to be free? This is also a part of the belief structures of many cultures and religions. What if said slave believes that you should join him in chains, Mr. Kardel? Where’s your tolerance of other cultures and beliefs in such a situation?

      “There are slaves and slavery on Trandosha, just as there is on -many- Republican worlds and Hutt worlds.”

      Um…excuse me? On which Republic world is slavery legal? Last I checked, slavery was illegal throughout the Republic. Please tell me where you have seen slavery on a Republic world so that I can go check this out for myself.

      “We of the Confederacy do not condone slavery, but we will not take your beliefs from you simply because they aren’t ours.”

      This has got to be the stupidest lie I’ve heard from a Confed representative. “Hey guys! We think slavery is immoral…but we’ll condone it anyway!”

      The real reason you cater to the beliefs of slave owners over the beliefs of slaves in freedom is 1) A lot of powerful and influential people in the Confederacy are slavers or own slaves and you haven’t got the backbone to say no to them and 2) Slavery is a huge part of the economy of your world. The tax monies of which go to help pay the salaries of people like Redden and yourself.

      Lies like this are why many people of the Republic(and other places!) don’t believe you folks are sincere about peace, Mr. Kardel. I and others around the galaxy think your treaty is nothing more than a sham. We think your plan is to conduct a proxy war through the so-called “rogue agents” President Redden blathers about and groups like the Obsidian Dominion.

    The Republic is going to have to learn a valuable lesson here as well. What may be against your laws, might not be against another society’s laws. Sith have their way, Mandalorians have their way, Trandoshans and Hutts have their way. If you are going to make the decision of war on something like their culture, then you will never be striving for the peace you stand for.

      Very true, mando’ade have their way.But the fact is this…Kyr’tsad, known also as Death Watch can’t speak in the name of all mando’ade.
      I talked recently with the alor’ad of aliit Mereel, about this matter and the reaction was violent..” Mereel will never join Death Watch” and are rumours that Vevut, Mirdala and others have same attitude related to Death Watch. And so am i, i was raised and educated in Super Commando Codex spirit and i will not change my mind over the night, just because Death Watch are so vocals and are agitating their weapons, because they don’t impress me. Death Watch allied themselves with New Confederacy…good for them, bad for others. I just hope for the good of Kyr’tsad….and here Ardeth smiles slightly.. that the leaders of the Confederacy will not understand wrong the Kyr’tsad is using them for their own …purpose. Would be sad, because within kyr’tsad are some people with valor like Dark Deezul.
