364.22 // The Return of the Antarian Rangers

Earlier today the Jedi Order held a press conference on the steps of the Ossus Temple. Members of the Council and the Order were in attendance. After the entirety of the Jedi Council assembled, Grand Master Don’roq took to the podium.

“It is with great honour that I am formally announcing the re-founding of an ancient and prestigious institution. An institution that has served alongside the Jedi Knights for a thousand years. Made of dedicated men and women otherwise unable to feel the Force but serve the Jedi Order all the same.

This institution is the Antarian Rangers.

Work has been done to both recruit and train promising new members for the past several years and, while I cannot disclose official numbers, the majority will be stationed at the Ossus Temple, and the rest deployed among the Order’s facilities.

The Jedi Council has appointed Pers Antilles of Corellia to be Ranger General, a former commander in CorSec and veteran of the Imperium War. We believe he is well suited for the position, and has already done tremendous work, playing a huge role in building the Rangers to their current position.

It is the Council’s belief that the Antarian Rangers will make the Order’s job of providing peace, justice easier for many years to come.

Thank you, and may the Force be with you.”

364.22 // Civil War erupts on Shumavar

Outer Rim system Shumavar, which lies on the border of Republic Territory, has engaged in a civil war, claim reports from locals in the region. The Royal Palace at Ansun was the main site of the conflict, with several other skirmishes taking place in surrounding cities.

Tensions have been high on Shumavar since the assassination of beloved King Vyar Erinoss in 363ABY. King Vyar was succeeded by his son, Nivian, whose appointment divided figureheads and public alike. Currently, there is no definitive report on whether King Nivian survived the attack.

The Galactic Republic authorities have advised against unnecessary travel to the system, with many trade routes being occupied by aid and rescue transports.

363.30 // Hunter found dead outside of Kenzie

The mystery surrounding the bizarre disappearance of a local hunter was partially solved when a body had been found on the outskirts of the Kenzie Settlement, identified to be a Gar Izen.

The Rannon Security Forces (RSF) has yet to disclose his cause of death to the public. The 32 years old human went missing after leaving for the jungle three days ago. A desperate rescue expedition was organized by the RSF after another hunter reported about finding some of Izen’s belongings near blood stains on the ground, deep in the jungle. The man was found dead by excessive bleeding only yesterday; it was too late to save him.

His loving wife, Mays Izen, mourned him saying “he died doing what was most passionate to him”.

363.23 // Forked River Mavericks win championship

Last night, grav-ball team Forked River Mavericks defied all expectations after being crowned champions of the Galactic League in a nail-biting match against crowd favorites Bonadan Bouncebeasts.

The Forked River Mavericks, who in previous seasons have never advanced beyond the first round of play-offs, surprised fans and gamblers alike with a near perfect win streak throughout the season. The underdogs met with previous champions Bonadan Bouncebeasts and narrowly won with a 81-78 final score.

The match, which was held in the historic stadium in J’lal district, drew larger crowds than any in recent years and marks the end of this year’s official grav-ball season. The first rounds of the new season will start in 364ABY.

363.09 // Terrorist Attack on Du Hutta

Breaking news from Du Hutta as a large explosion occurs at the estate of the Hutt, Lnorsha.

Around roughly 0500 local time, an explosion rocked Jancola province on Du Hutta, at what was known to formally be the estate of Lnorsha the Hutt. The large explosion devastated the main building along with several surrounding support structures. Casualties numbers are still coming in, but figures currently point to around eighty dead, including Lnorsha the Hutt, along with another fifty injuried.

Local investigators have determined that an explosion using large amounts of thermite and baradium, the main components of devices such as thermal detonators, was responsible for the destruction. No organizations or individuals have came forward to take responsibility for the attack.

A Republic spokesman released this statement following the explosion.

“The devastating attack that hit the planet of Du Hutta this morning, our hearts go out to those who lost family members with this tragedy. The Republic will do all they can in assisting the local authorities in finding those responsible.”

 

Lnorsha the Hutt was a low-ranking member of the Hutt families, and was recently thought to be under investigation from GRID officials for people trafficking.

We will keep you updated as more details come to light on this terrible story.
