387.19 // Missing Sword causes the Lamprey Basin to bubble and boil.

The tension between the two towns of Dorsel and Shanti Reef continues to grow as Dorsel officially terminates all boat trip excursions between the two settlements.

Both settlements are located in the vast Lamprey Basin which is protected on all sides by towering Fins mountain range. Situated in the heart of Karkaris, they are both popular tourist destinations with both Karkoradons and off-worlders. Whilst both are still individually accessible via shuttles, Shanti Reefs economy is significantly bolstered by ‘day trippers’ from Dorsel.

Whilst a friendly rivalry has always existed between the two, it soured a year or so ago, when the ancient sword of founding father of both settlements, Nidusronto Shanti, was stolen. The culprit behind the theft is still unknown, and the whereabouts of the sword a mystery.

This latest development is seen as an attempt to put pressure on Shanti Reef to report the theft to Karkaris Security Forces. Dorsel has repeatedly and consistently asked for the case to be referred to KSF, however the sword which spends 60 years in each settlement before transferring to the other, was in its 24th year at Shanti Reef when it was taken, meaning that for an official KSF investigation to begin Shanti Reef must report it missing. Something that as of yet, they have refused to do.

When asked to comment, one of the local town councilors and Shanti Reef shuttle port manager Stin’io had this to say

It’s none of your business. We’ve got a someone looking into it, better than any KSF officer. The sword will be back in no time you wait and see.

Until then Shanti Reef is open for business.

387.13 // Attack on Vohai Garrisons, defections and Ruun declares State of Emergency

A shocking turn of events has gripped Vohai, as seven major garrisons on the cities of Summerfield, Little Rodia and Gallicia have rebelled against their regional authorities and joined the planet-gripping strikes, with many of them professing loyalty to the ‘People’s Will’ terrorist faction. While the situation is still unclear, it is reported by several sources that Republic officials have been stripped and killed as Government buildings are stormed and set ablaze, most notably in the capital of Vohai City. After almost ten years without need, the State of Emergency has once again been declared on the turmoiltuous planet of Vohai.

Resources are being stripped from nearby systems to aid in the support of the remaining Vohai’s garrisons, but G.R.I.D officials have denoted a lack of ability in their espionage and covert operations to try and defeat the terrorist cell of the People’s Will due to ‘subversion of the population’.

Reportedly, Governor-General Ruun is reaching out to old allies within the Jedi Order – but at this time it is unconfirmed. Whether or not the violence will be contained can only be told through time; the Galaxy holds its breath and watches.

387.12 // Statement: Grandmaster Don’roq

Initiates, Padawans, Knights and Masters.

You do not need me to tell you that the last four years have been a difficult time for the Order.

On 387.09, Jedi from Rannon Praxeum led a successful operation and recovered 34 force sensitive children. Details of this assignment are strictly classified and are restricted to the High Council, Local Councillors and the residents of Rannon Praxeum who have been involved in the long term investigation and recovery of the children.

In the short term, the children will all be returned to their families. Longer term, those that were due to begin training with the Jedi Order will study at Ossus under my personal watch before being distributed across the various outposts and praxeums in the galaxy.

Whilst GRID has formally shut down its Operation Lost Stars, the Order have reason to believe that two children are still missing, and those responsible are still to be held to account. Whilst now is certainly a time for celebration, there is still work to be done.

At this time, I would like to personally praise Rannon Praxeum for carrying the intense burden of the investigation. The Jedi Order has not been this well regarded in the galaxy for many decades, and this boost in popularity is down to you. I urge all members across the Order to seek to grow and nuture this new found approval.

Finally, I would like to pay respects to a dear personal friend of mine, Master Cael Dan’kor who became one with the force during the operation to recover the children. His contribution to the Order was immeasurable and whilst he will be missed, his words and lessons will undoubtedly live on through everyone who knew him.

Kind Regards
Grandmaster Don’roq

387.11 // Ruun declared new Governor-General amid Vohai chaos

In an unsurprising turn of events, Laa’ken Ruun, former Jedi, Senator and Naval Officer has been issued the rare title of Governor-General of the Vohai System, as well as all affiliated military and civilian enterprises to ‘ensure the safety and security of the citizens of the Republic.’ The Chief of State made a brief and unannounced statement on his off-world flight to visit Ithor, in which he stated:

Governor Ruun has had a long and fruitful career, which makes him the most experienced man for the job. At this time, the Republic does not wish to directly engage with regional matters out of respect for the decentralisation of our governing bodies. We have every confidence in Ruun’s abilities and are giving him every resource required to deal with the threat posed by the terrorist cells on Vohai, and pray that in due course no more suffering comes to the innocents plagued by their barbarism.

Despite Holonews’ best efforts, we have been unable to reach Governor-General Ruun for comment or interview.

387.10 // Order and Grid: “Rescue of over 30 force sensitive children”

The Galaxies hololens were firmly pointed at the steps of the Senate building in the early hours this morning. The Galaxy waited with baited breath, after rumours of an breaking development around Operation Lost Stars began to circle in press circles and social media.

At approximately 0502GST a GRID spokesperson released a joint statement on behalf of GRID and the Jedi Order.

GRID and The Jedi Order can confirm that yesterday an operation was successfully executed that led to the rescue of over 30 force sensitive children.

We are delighted to confirm that the children have been reunited with their families.

GRID and the Order would like to request privacy for the children and their loved ones at this time.

No details of the operation were revealed to the public, sources within GRID seem to indicate that it was entirely carried out the Jedi Order, but for now Operation Lost Stars has been closed and curiously with no-one formally charged.
