Lady Zav/Zyrah Kidnapped

December 18, 2013 6 comments

GNN reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide met up with UrZuric on his quest to rescue Lady Zav.

Landing site on Oricon

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.”

Imperial Inquisition Prepares to Make Their Mark on the Galaxy

December 8, 2013 9 comments

Following the fights on Yavin IV, GNN reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide spoke with the Sith order involved in the attack.

Meeting with the Inquisition in the hangar of their flagship.

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.

Members of the Inquisition

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.

The Inquisition explaining their plan of conquest.

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.

Conflict with Krayiss II Sith Empire

November 11, 2013 5 comments

A reporter of the Galactic News Network travelled to Krayiss II to meet the authorities.

Dwellings in Krayiss II

The planet Krayiss II, seat of the new Sith Empire led by Darth Apparition and Empress Chaos was the ground of a large assault from Republic’s Forces. The surprise attack was repealed with casualties in both sides. During the combats a small Jedi commando penetrated in the Temple and fought Darth Apparition, who had to use some of his powers to block them. The two Jedi managed to escape but are wanted by the Imperial authorities.

Combats in the temple

Appartion believe his neutralisation was the real motivation behind the attack. The Empire already led campaigns against the Republic’s asset and personalities and he said he’s on the top the Republic’s most wanted.

The Empire is proud of the restoration they’re accomplishing in the Sith Space, rebuilding old monuments and structures and providing job to the Sith citizens. They also stopped to recognize the old Sith Empire in Byss as an empire, but suggest their “organisation” would “request to become a member of The Sith Empire.” Then they “will be given resources to help rebuild their empty land and bring citizens back to it so they may have a work force and a means of income.”

Darth Apparition expect to unit all the Sith. He concluded “The Empire’s interests are to get the Sith to work together like never before, and while others may wish for what is left of the Sith to join under their banner, the Capital has moved and it is here. Krayiss II is the Home of the Sith where life begins anew for all of us. If this wasn’t true then we would not have all of this, and those coming to learn under us and make Sith Space a better place.”

Ac’Trayth Jedi returns

October 6, 2013 13 comments

A reporter of Galactic News interviewed Esvakas Verone over Taris.

The Ac’Trayth Jedi is emerging again after a long period where they had to hide from their enemies and recover from their loss. A few yeasr ago, the master Rykiana Ferina went to Byss to confront two Sith generals, Darth Chaos and Darth Keres and stop the war they were orchestrating. The master didn’t come back and the order followed his instruction to enter in the shadow of the unknown region in such a case. Unfortunately, the Sith managed to track them and killed many of the Jedi, assuming  because the order had stopped  their schemes. The order entered then in a phase of discretion.

Esvakas Verone

They however kept contacts within the Galaxy. Feeling their past experience to stabilise worlds would be useful again, they decided to return to assist. The specifics of their plan are not released, but they will at least have to deal with Darth Keres and Chaos who tried to destroy the order.

The Jedi Esvakas Verone considers himself as a Jedi as “more a conduit between the people around me and the force,” than a weapon to defeat the Sith or a tool of the force. The Ac’Trayth distinguishes from many others by its rare direct recruitment. Their headquarter isn’t public, anyone wanting to meet them can “look in the shadow,” once they know of interest, they’ll approach them.

This may change if needed, the enclave decides freely of their orientation course. According to Esvakas Verone, the returning Ac’Trayth is “stronger than before.”

Visiting the Amaran Homeworld

September 15, 2013 Comments off

GNN Reporter Daana Kira traveled to Amar to speak with members of Starwind.

Island of Arannis on Amar.

“Upon the Amaran home world of Amar lies an island known as Arannis with its largest city built inside the caverns of a dormant volcano. Unique on Amar, the island is home to those known as “Chundas” or the exiled ones. Composed mainly of those born with black fur and those that have helped them, these exiled ones have escaped a death sentence and made their own home outside the mainstream Amaran culture. Having the same fur color as the Amaran god of destruction known as Rayxin, this distinction usually tags the amaran to be sacrificed at birth, but many are saved from the destiny and finally make their way to Arannis.

City under the volcano.

The island itself has become more important as Starwind, the organization based on Tatooine to help displaced Amarans contacted the home world for assistance and aid against specism. Instead of finding solace with the rest of Amar, Starwind instead found that racism itself was alive on their home world, but eventually found allies among those of Arannis.  With the sharing of ideas between Starwind and the unique technology of the “Chundras”, Arannis now has a technological advantage over the other populated areas of Amar.

Eric Kaplan of Stawrind.

Heading the equivalent of the ministry of technology for Starwind, Eric Kaplin, is now also overseeing their place on Arannis. Though not born on Amar itself, but growing up on Mandalore, Mr. Kaplin is now back on his species home world to help Starwind and the exiled ones. He was gracious enough to give GNN a tour. He explained that Starwind wasn’t on Amar to stir conflicts or raise arms against their brothers, but just to help protect their new-found allies amongst the “Chundras”. However, they’ve also found a sort of home also on Arannis as the city itself has religious significance as a mecca for the Amaran goddess Mara.

Starwind hopes that their alliance with Arannis will not only end racism on their home world, but also specism throughout the galaxy.”

Sleyheyron Running At Optimal Capacity

September 9, 2013 Comments off

GNN reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide visited the Odominic controlled Sleyheyron shipyards.

Sleyheyron Shipyards

Sleheryon System: The shipyards owned by the Odominic Hutt Clan, headed by Issulla the Hutt are operating at full capacity. A large space station is at the center of the activity providing room and activities for workers and visitors alike. The 360 degree view allows a complete overlook of the activity taking place in orbit. Visitors though are advised to make themselves known upon arrival and contact station managers before docking due to the indiscriminate automated security systems which have a tendency to shoot first and ask questions later.

As for the shipyards themselves, they are outfitted with the latest and cutting edge shipbuilding technologies. The facilities are equipped to build stock to custom vessels of about any size from yachts to capital ships ranging in price from 250,000 credits to several hundred million. Most of the ships being built currently were based off imperial star destroyer designs but because of shipyards standards the customer names are confidential. Because of the efficiency of the shipyards, ships can be produced in record times, from just a few weeks to several months.

Exploring the cantina with allies of the Odominic

The space station will also be a center place for business and other business for the Odominic clan and its allies, which include members of the CIS and other Hutt clans. However, even though a meeting hall has been set up for Issulla the Hutt she will still be holding court on Kessel Gate for the foreseeable future. Other facilities are included to give traders and other visitors a chance to relax or conduct business and in the future special events may also be held there.Overall the shipyards were impressive to see and for those looking to do business with the Hutts, are in the market for a new ship, or need someplace to set up trades, the Sleheyron Shipyards are the place to be.”
