392.11 // The Attack of Rannon Praxeum

Members of the Order,

On 392.10, The force nexus housed at the heart of Rannon Praxeum was attacked by an entity using what we have now termed the ‘Spectral Force’. An erratic and unstable energy that is created by disrupting the natural transition between life and death. The High Council condemns the manipulation of such a sacred right. We all have a right to life just as much as we have the right to pass over to be one with the force without interference. Whilst we continue to attempt to understand this unnatural force and how to combat it, please stay vigilant. Security around all known force nexus’s has been increased and placed on high alert.

It is with great sadness that I announce the deaths of Jedi Knight Joran Fayara and Jedi Padawan Lystra Hale. We are grateful that both successfully became one with the force.

At the time of this message, the Order is organising a flotilla of ships to for the residents of Rannon. However, should the residents of Rannon visit your temple, outpost or support facility, please ensure they feel welcome.

Finally, Padawan Tribo Orana has also been reported missing since the attack, his status and whereabouts are unknown. If anyone hears from Padawan Orana, please inform a mentor immediately.

Kind Regards
Grandmaster Don’roq

392.10 // Only skilled pilots need apply!

As the storms on Rannon continue to rage on, the effects of it are still truly to be realised. Satellite scans of Rannon show that currently the the heart of the storm sits squarely over the Kenzie Plains.

Such is the level of disruption caused by the volatile storms that only a small safe corridor exists to allow any air traffic be it local or galactic to exit the area. As a result the RSF are requiring any air or space travel in and out of the Kenzie Plains be co-ordinated by the Space Traffic Control function at the city of Kenzie.

When asked what would happen should two ships meet head on in the corridor the Chief Space Controller, Nacku Yanyo simply stated

“It becomes a game of tip-yip. Who will blink first. You either crash into each other, or one is forced into the storm either side of the corridor. I think I’d rather take the collision.”

391.28 // Exclusive: Crashed ship identified and revealed!

It took 4 days for the towering smoke above the mountain border between the Kenzie Plains and Hora Point to subside. Only then could investigators get close to the wreckage of the fallen ship to try to piece together what exactly happened.

The area has been cordoned off for the best part of 2 cycles with little in way of news. Although several sources have confirmed that incessant and unrelenting storms has not made the process easy.

Today, Rannon Access News upon conclusion of the investigation granted an exclusive first look at the crash site.

Upon stepping into the clearing the devastation was immediately apparent. We saw the heart breaking carcasses of the local wildlife population driven from their homes and either hunted by their predators or trapped by the engaging inferno. We walked across the blackened flora, damaged by smoke that will scar and upset the natural balance of this part of Rannon’s plantlife for decades to come, before finally witnessing the hulking ball of mangled metal that once constituted as a hull of the ship.

With the investigation now concluded, R.A.N can exclusively confirm that the ship involved in the crash is ‘The Yavin Runner’ a light transport operated by the Jedi Praxeum located here on Rannon. It has been confirmed that the there were no fatalities to any of the passengers, although, all here are in agreement that in itself constitutes a miracle.

The submitted report states that the ship fell from the sky after being struck by successive bolts of ‘lightning’, seemingly by-passing the fully operational and working shields of the ship. With this report, the on-going legal battle between the Order and the manufacturers of The Yavin Runner draws to a close. The judge ruled a “force majeure”. A legal term that frees both parties from liability or obligation when an extraordinary event or circumstance beyond the control of the parties occurs.

The crash site will remain closed to the public, and the R.S.F guidance on travel in and around the Kenzie Plains area remains the same: Critical journeys only, please avoid all unnecessary travel.

391.16 // CANCELLED: “The Second Dream” tour stop.

391.03 // A Question of Succession

Talk and debate regarding the next in line to the throne have been playing back and forth across the Empire in recent months.

With Empress Belitria still childless and will no apparent suitor on the horizon, many in the Imperial Palace on Bastion have, apparently, begun to quietly throw their support behind members of the extended Imperial family. Two in particular are proving increasingly popular as potential successors to the Empress.

Grand Moff Javin Fel has served on the Council of Moffs for the past thirty years and served with honours in the war with the Sith Imperium when he was younger, having taken part in the battle to reclaim Bastion. While popular among the other Grand Moff’s and, indeed, the military at large, he is seen as something of a traditionalist and has long been one of the more outspoken voices in the Imperial government against the Empire’s alliance with the Republic.

Ambassador Nemera Torysk has acquired something of a ‘people’s hero’ reputation over the course of her career in the Imperial Diplomatic Corp. Serving as her distant cousins ambassador to the Republic, she has been monumental in solidifying relations between the two powers as well as warming the opinions and relations of other nations across the galaxy towards the Empire.

While much of this issue remains speculation so far, the question surrounding the Imperial succession continues to slowly build. While the risk of civil war erupting as a result of the issue seems incredibly small, whoever succeeds the current Empress to the throne will determine the direction of the Empire and her politics for years to come.
