416.02 // War comes to the Republic

Over the last two cycles the Wyld Empire has spent time and resources solidifying its control over its acquisitions. It appears that stability has been reached on the annexed worlds as, with securing their border along the Arkanis Sector with the acquisition of Wrea and Ryloth, the Wyld Empire has turned their eyes towards the sleeping giant, the Galactic Republic.


In a broadcast to the galaxy today, the Emperor of the growing militant state formally declared war on the Republic, citing a specific war goal to complete:


[The viewscreen cuts to a clip of the speech. The armored figure of the Wyld Emperor standing in the foreground with a wall of flames burning behind him is followed by the sound of his distorted, robotic voice through his helmet]

“Over the last cycles our fledgling Empire has established itself as the preeminent ruling body in your Wild Space. Nonetheless, we’ve found that our sovereignty, independence, and authority has been questioned by those who wish to see the status quo of the Galaxy maintained.

“We refuse to continue to be ignored; viewed as a blip on the radars of the Galactic powers that be. We control four of the five systems that consist of the ‘5 veils’ region of your maps. We will solidify our control over that region and prove ourselves a force to be reckoned with in one fell swoop: our intended acquisition of Vohai.

“The Wyld Empire formally declares war on the Galactic Republic, the driving force of stagnation and ineptitude in the Galaxy. We will prove to all that we are a powerful nation that will be respected and feared by all.”

The senate in crisis, the Chancellor has ordered the 5th fleet to mobilize and move to defend the system of Vohai from invasion as well as issued his own statement,

“The Republic has fought many grave threats throughout our history. Since our reconstitution, we’ve endured strife in many forms from many violent enemies foreign and domestic. I want to reassure the member systems of the Republic, our allies, as well as those who would seek to exploit this moment for their personal gain, that we’re unconcerned with this violent threat from the belligerents who have, through force and violence, expanded through independent regions to our south. They will find that, in this case, they’ve bitten off more than they can chew.”

War declared and military forces mobilizing, we will be keeping our viewers updated on all critical developments as they occur. We encourage all viewers who are watching from Vohai to follow the local government’s evacuation directives swiftly to ensure that minimum civilian injuries or casualties occur in the coming days.
