366.15 // Dantooine Votes to Secede!

Breaking News!

After much heated back and forth between debaters and voters, the planet of Dantooine and indeed, the Raioballo sector in its entirety, have voted to secede from the New Republic and join the Fel Empire.

While the new High Moff for the sector has yet to be appointed, reports indicate that there is a shortlist of candidates and we can expect a result soon. Needless to say the result of the vote has a handful of Senators on Coruscant concerned, with a number wondering just how many outlying sectors will vote to join the Imperial government; a government that has seen steady growth and recovery since the end of the war with the Sith Imperium.

In related news, fighting has apparently broken out across the Empire’s eastern territories with detachments of the Imperial military engaged in battles across the Morshdine, Meram and Corva sectors. Imperial officials have remained tight lipped as to the nature of the fighting, claiming that it is merely ‘local trouble’. The Republic fleet remains on high alert, apparently having deployed to defend a number of worlds along the neighboring Hydian Way.

366.12 // RSF cracks down on illegal cargo in Pavan

According to reports released early this morning, the RSF and offworld officials seized large quantities of illegal substances in Pavan, Sector 15-C, in what is being described as ‘one of the largest hauls in Rannon’s recent history’. The crackdown took place overnight, shutting off large portions of the settlement’s cargoport and surrounding areas. Sections were reopened this morning with increased security enforcement.

The haul, which is rumored to include pyrodase and banthazolate, was intended to be shipped offworld disguised in hollow durasteel frames. Officials have not released the cargo’s destination, nor its origin on Rannon, though an investigation has been launched. As of yet, no names have been published in relation to the crackdown.

Locals who were interviewed on the scene this morning expressed surprise that such a large cargo was found outside of capital Kenzie, but the RSF and co-operating officials have not commented on the discovery. Instead, the report reiterated a warning to smugglers considering the Rannon system as a waypoint for their illegal activities.

365.27 // Jedi Master Weaves Diplomatic Disaster!

Here we have a small picture taken from live footage captured by one of our reporters on the ground in Dantooine covering the talks happening there regarding Dantooine’s political future. Here’s the picture now, followed by some audio of reporter Le’ma Denat on the scene with Dantooine representative Rian No’Kesta.

We have managed to make our way into the Jedi Temple on Dantooine, where negotiations of the government’s future is under way. It is unclear what will come of this trading of arguments. The Empire is unrelenting and the Republic is providing a strong defense- Wait.. Wait- Something is happening! Are you getting this?? The Jedi Master is being aggressive and is shouting towards the representative of Dantooine! What has gotten into him!?

We have to see what is going on! Here he comes now! Mister No’Kesta! A word please!?.. Will you be taking what has happened here today back to your superiors??

No’Kesta: Yes, of course! We will not be tolerating this from the Jedi! And I will not stand to being insulted to my face!

Le’ma Denat: Insulted!?

No’Kesta: Indeed! If i have anything to say regarding the vote, Dantooine should firmly go with the Empire! I was not impressed today. Not at all.


Le’ma Denat: Thank you for your comments Mr. No’Kesta. Have a good evening.

And there you have it, a sweet deal gone sour. What will the Jedi do? More on this soon. This is Le’ma Denat, signing off!

 

365.18 // Imperial Military on Full Alert

Word has come in from our correspondents on Bastion that the Imperial military has officially gone to a state of full alert. As much as half of its standing armed forces are already fully mobilized with the bulk of the fleet moving to deploy along the Empire’s Eastern territories.

All inquiries as to the reasoning behind the mobilization have gone unanswered, both inside the Empire itself as well as by contacts within the Republic Senate. Even more alarmingly, the Republic’s own Mid Rim and Outer Rim fleets have begun to mobilize with a number of Norther sector defense forces already on high alert.

365.01 // Dirt Mite Nest Destroyed!

Last night the Jedi Order and R.S.F launched an attack on the dirt mite nest. For thousands of years the nest proved impossible to locate. While the details of the historic operation are classified, the R.S.F chief told the press that the dirt mite nest and queen have been destroyed. The Jedi Council of Rannon and its Gate Master have yet to comment on their involvement.

Let’s go to the people of Kenzie for comments:

Ru Bah, 79, Human: “*Bah*, I think this is a political stunt. No way they found the nest.”

Alara Yil, 26, Rodian: “I am grateful to the Jedi and R.S.F. With less attacks, it will be easier to farm.”

Tin Qua, 32, Nautolan: “I wish I could’ve seen the Jedi and police put em’ six feet under. Nasty little things!”

Miva Harra, 15, Human: “The Jedi and police had no right killing them. They are animals and acted on instinct. They don’t know any better! Those animals ought to be protected, now that they are likely on the verge of extinction!”

There are no reports of dirt mite sightings. For more news stay tuned…
