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.”

New Release: Cirdens Fang Speech on the new Republic

April 11, 2013 26 comments

Reproduction of the speech made by Cirdens Fang on the New Republic channels

A spinning sign of the republic would appear before the picture of the commander sitting at a desk, behind him the capital Coruscant a buz with life… and he speaks,

“Greetings the people of the New Republic, I am Commander Cirden Fang, from the Ministry of Defense. I appear before you today, to put a stop to the rumors that the senate doesn’t care, that the republic is dead, that we as a whole representation of freedom had failed… Look were I am, I sit in the center of the republic, in an office on republic soil. I will not lie though, the Republic is in bad shape. After the war, we went bankrupt, but I refused to let go when others did, I traveled the galaxy wide, in an attempt to find funds during this time, the position of Minister of Defense trickled down the line to me… because no one else wanted it, because no one cared enough. With that being said… the current interim chancellor Shan Connell has authorized and given her full permission and consent to this speech.”

The Camera pitches and fades to black as a new angle of the minister is shown, his head turning to the camera and continued,

“To open this speech, I wish to say that there will be changes ultimately to our constitution, to allow more planets to join the republic while limiting corruption by doing vast background checks, security checks, and other forms of identification programs on elected senators. The same goes for those who have positions of power, including myself, and the other ministers. In my time as commander of the New Republic Special Operations Force or NRSO, I have at time been called upon to do harm to our Senate but it has been at the authorization power that I hold. I will not hide what I have done, as that would be against the policies in which we will in act, and will answer questions truthfully to the best of my ability as long as it doesn’t damage current operations. “

A slight pause, before the shot changes again,

“Further more, the Jedi who have served so faithfully as the republics guardians for centuries have slacked… Except those from DJE, GLA, and KOJ, I formally wish to congratulate them and honor them for their help in winning our Capital back from the grips of the empire and other sorties I have heard of them doing. I have hopes for the future were those of other enclaves will be willing to go the lengths that these others have, as with out them, the forces of the Jensaarai, the NRSO, and other supporters of the republic, we wouldn’t be were we are now. So now we must dig deep, and start rebuilding and reformation of the Republic as a whole. To start, a new symbol was made to represent the rebirth of the great Republic.

An now the people of the Republic, there are jobs being built… look out your doors, look out your windows, look around you and feel as the things that we do now will breath life into something everyone thought was long dead. No longer will policy be void to corruption, No longer will we sit stagnate and allow ourselves to fall like that again. I have worked too hard to see that happen. We will work too hard to see it happen… I promise this to you the people of the Republic that we WILL not falter, we will not fail, and we will never give up. An with that we open our boarders once more to traffic, too aide, and to trade. Know though that any who wish to do harm to this Republic will find themselves at the end of an army in which… well… none can truly comprehend, fore our allies are strong and many. Thank you, and Long Live the Republic!”

With that the picture fades to the new republic symbol.

CIS meeting in Korriban

March 25, 2013 Comments off

The Confederacy of Independent System held their meeting in the CMC (Corellia Mining Corporation) offices in Korriban. Several topic were addressed.

Lady Kia was please of the several deal during the fair in Dathomir. Many were minor, but they have a major agreement with a Space Station orbiting around Tatooine. Out of the troubles of the surface, they host a factory of advanced weapons. Also a group of dancers and entertainers lives in. CIS members would send a delegation to this station.

Lady Kia also started the investigations on Ilum missing mining colony. Nothing was found, so far, the facility remain intact. Since an Enclave of Jedi now seat nearby, some member suggested to proposed them to represent Ilum.

The next order of business was the upcoming renewal of the CIS contract with the Revenant Armada, who were contracted to provide security to the CIS shipping lanes. Magister Salene Lusch of Zonama Sekot had stated that the people of her world were concerned with the war the Revenant Armada was raging against the Hapes Consortium. Several reports had indicated that Armada forces had leveled several worlds in the Hapes CLuster, and Magister Salene was concerned on the wider implications of such a war for the CIS.

CIS meeting on Korriban.

Admiral Abyssus of the Armada personally appeared at this meeting to clear the air, though he already had backing from other members such as Gistya Antilles who stated that it wasn’t CIS concerned what the Armada was involved in as long as they were not conducting their affairs under the CIS flag or authorization. Admiral Abyssus assured the membership that the Armada conducts their duties under their contracts professionally and are separated from their personal affairs. He also pointed out that worlds like Zonama Sekot shouldn’t be so critical of Armada affairs since they’ve made bed fellows with Sith, criminal and other suspicious factions around the galaxy, all who have committed atrocities far worse than what has happened in their war. Magister Lusch responded that the destruction of a world is worth concern but she had said her peace for now and would wait for the re-newel vote at the next meeting.

Following this exchange, Emperor Oblivion and Lady Zyrah, who recently gained extensive holding on Coruscant came before the CIS membership to express their willingness to work with the confederation and to offer the old senate building on Coruscant for CIS use. After a discussion of the concern of the Order of Dark Sith Lord’s expansive imperial tendencies, the CIS members agreed to visit Coruscant and the other holdings of this Empire to gather more information, enter more talks, and to see about a trade treaty being formed even if this empire didn’t become a member. A final report about Coruscant would be prepared for the next meeting.

On a final note, Baron Septus also arrived to the meeting to offer his services to the Confederation. Not able to stay long, he said he could be contacted if the CIS or its individual members needed anything. Most likely he referred to the biological technologies he’s developed and deployed around the galaxy. The CIS members made no comments on the offer at this time and with that this meeting was adjourned with the next being scheduled in two weeks for Korriban again.

March 24, 2013 1 comment

GNN reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide met with the leadership of the Order of Dark Sith Lords for a tour of their palace and surrounding area on Coruscant. Later a GNN Corespondent reported the coronation of UrZuric Kirkorian to Emperor of Coruscant.

Coruscant: The government and surround sectors of Coruscant have changed hands once again and are under the control of the Order of Dark Sith Lords led by Lord Oblivion and Lady Zyrah. Having wrested control by force, the two Sith Lords showed off their new palace and changes they’ve made to some of the surrounding landmarks.

According to the new rulers this conquest sparks the reemergence of his Sith Empire that will spread throughout the galaxy. He hopes to coordinate with the other Sith Empire based out of Byss, but time will tell if any relationship can be made there. For now they are consolidating their power on Coruscant and preparing to make alliances.

Senate building on Coruscant.

First they’ve created an area in the entertainment district specifically for Hutt use and hope to form a formal alliance with many. Secondly the Senate and other government buildings are being kept in hopes the Confederacy of Independent Systems (CIS) will make use of them. While in control of Malrev, the regime had petitioned for membership  in the CIS, though now that may be mute as many parts of the confederacy constitution looks to bar their membership, though those details will have to be hammered out. At the very least they may be able to form a treaty with them.

Already in place to govern their new holdings, a large Imperial Palace has been built-in the government sector. Larger than the one on Marlev 4 the new Emperor and his advisors will over see the governance of Corsucant from their. Through their tight control they will improve the lives of the citizens under their control and make Coruscant even a bigger gem than it is now.

GNN will keep abreast of events as they unfold on Coruscant and the expansion of the Order of the Dark Sith Lords into other planets such as Voss. ”

Progresses in the Tython bioweapon investigations

January 4, 2013 10 comments

Reporters of the Galactic News Network discussed with a investigator on the Bioweapon of Tython.

The invasion of Tython, since a  time ago, by the Galactic Empire was justified by the presence of bioweapon on this planet. The Emperor supported this invasion because of the threat to his empire, which included the holding of Coruscant at the time. After they withdraw, the Empire gave their elements for an investigation to Republic’s representative, Tae Aichi and Sapphire Tafo. This last one requested the Jedi of Dantooine to investigate.

The Jedi investigator confirmed there was actually a bioweapon. No evidence so far shows it would have been directed against the Empire, however. The creation of this weapon itself is full of mysteries. It was created from the DNA of a Jedi, it was given by someone called Hammerlock to the Tython Jedi Lady Acker, who locked it away to secure it from younglings. Lady Acker had lost her memory of that time, but she had now unlocked them. The virus container was then given to Lady Alexa and a courier, named Nalan Ga’lor, was hired to bring it to the Emperor Laan. Lady Acker then went to Coruscant to try to determine if the Empire had set up charges of it.

The investigations are not over, who’s this Hammerlock who created the virus and what was his original intent remains unknown. It would be interesting to know if the Empire confirmed the investigation when they’ll conclude.

Mass Driver Weapon test in Bengat

December 7, 2012 24 comments

A reporter of Galactic News attended at a weapon demonstration in Bengat

The Mass Driver gun

The Empire proceeded to a weapon test. Originally reserved to few guests, such as the Hutt Council, the demonstration was finally open, although, most of the audience were members of the Empire or the Hutt Space. The “firing ceremony” took place in their new holding Bengat. An old but large Star Destroyer Imperial II Class was deployed in the low atmosphere, facing the big gun of the weapon install on the shore.

The Emperor Kulith Laan introduced Lord Corvus, the engineer having created this weapon and congratulated Bengat for joining the EmpireLord Corvus. The weapon would destroy the spaceship and its remain would become a “New Great Artificial Reef.” Lord Corvus, a Disciple of Ragnos, explained this weapon already caused caused measurable damage to the republic ship the Outlaw during the battle for Coruscant and the Emperor had asked for a demonstration. The “Mass Driver”, the weapon name, was based on a tractor beam and was able to break any targets, ship or even asteroids. A ship shield would be unable to defend against such sort of ammunition.

A large crowd attending

People moved to the observation cabin, and after some trouble for aiming, the canon fired and hit the destroyer. The ship heated rapidly and after a few minutes, a giant explosion blasted its core and the ship was disintegrated in a huge flash of light.

Lord Corvus was congratulated by the Emperor for its demonstration. The Empire considered to install it on their capital ship, expecting to have an operational fleet equipped in few dozens of days. Darth Umbra assured the weapon can be improved furthermore even if she assured it’s already superior to other known weapons. Lord Corvus will continue to work on the weapon. He assured if an enemy was able to match this firepower, he would be even more motivated to create a even stronger weapon. Mit’lar The Hutt was interested by purchasing one but it was not for sale yet.

CIS Meets Again on Korriban

November 26, 2012 2 comments

GNN Reporter Rakiko Lowtide attended the latest CIS meeting on Korriban.

Korriban hosted the latest Confederacy of Independent System (CIS) for their latest meeting. Overseeing the meeting was Correlian Mining Corporation (CMC) representative Gistya Antilles. Also in attendance was Salene Lusch and Flint Mokeev of Zonama Sekot, Shaka the Hutt of Nar Shaddaa, Issulla the Hutt of Mustafar, Wing of Ilum, and Lady Kia of Dathomir. Several of the representative’s staff were also on hand.

CIS meets on Korriban.

CIS talks began with the issue of security and the announcement at the last meeting by mandalorian clan Ha’rangir that the CIS would be accountable if they hired the Revenant Armada. Since that time, Issulla has hired the mandalorians to oversee security in Mustufar and Sleheryon. Likewise Wing did the same for Ilum after a padawan who was legally collecting crystals was brutally attacked and injured by a Sith. Since the Revenant Armada was only being hired to defend trade routes, Wing hired the mandalorians for local defense. The attack may have been a retaliation for Wing breaking out of an Imperial prison on Kuat, though the exact details of her arrest weren’t given. Other members stated that the Sith attack on Ilum may have been a random event or another Sith faction who was unhappy with CIS members doing business with Jedi.

Antilles offered that an official declaration of Trade Security Zones (TSZ) be made, which are those areas protected by CIS security, and that a formal way for citizens to know these exact areas be made, possibly through a kiosk system. These zones would be the formal areas protected, other areas needed to be defended by the individual member. Other members agreed and the general establishment was that the CIS would only have jurisdiction inside these TSZs. A Trade Systems Committee was formed to finalize these TSZs as well as form a new credstick system. The Committee’s work would be voted on at the next meeting.

Lady Kia then took the floor and stated that Naboo under Queen Talani was requesting a delegation from the CIS to be sent about Naboo’s inclusion. The other members agreed and Naboo should be receiving the delegation soon. Secondly she reported that the Governor of Tython had informed her that CIS shipments to that world should stop since she hadn’t been a party to the deal. The CIS had been providing several shipments of relief and goods to Tython to help rebuild after the occupation so aid that world’s economy so they trade could be opened with them. Several members were at a loss as to how the governor could even control the trade and the relief efforts had been negotiated with the Tython Senator and legislature. However, they all agreed to stop shipments there and to send an evaluation team to see the exact nature of the Tython government and if that world was even open up to any business.

Next Wing made an announcement that Chelsea of the Rebel Scum, one of the groups that helped liberate Coruscant, had tried to steal crystals on Ilum and then committed assaults and property damage when she resisted arrest. Ilum was under contract with the Republic and the Jedi to provide crystals in exchange for the latter two factions to provide mining and food. Wing asked that the CIS issue a warrant for her arrest. The warrant was barely voted down, with several members stating that crime was done outside of the TSZ and Ilum would have to deal with their own private contract, though Wing was informed that she had several options, negotiate with the Republic for compensation or place a bounty on Chelsea’s head. Issulla the Hutt agreed to provide the bounty hunters if necessary.

Next an amendment was brought up to be voted on at the next meeting which would allow certain groups or factions without territory to have a non-voting place in the CIS where they could observe and make their voices known. Most members seemed to welcome such an amendment but the vote was held off for discussion.

With that the CIS meeting came to an end.
