397.19 // The Grandmaster’s Galactic Address

And now, a message from the Grandmaster of the Jedi Order, Don’roq.

For those unaware, our Order has gone through a most tumultuous time. We, as have the galaxy, been engaged with a threat the likes of which has not been seen before. Nevertheless, we Jedi have prevailed and brought this galaxy to a much safer place.

Our Jedi researchers, led by our strongest divisions that for security reasons will remain anonymous, uncovered the nature of an alien element, only recently discovered to exist in the galaxy. We have thus described it as the ‘Spectral Force’. This element, otherwise more commonly referred to as ‘the Void’, is a substance that feeds off the life energies of the Force – that which gives a Jedi their power – and disturbs its very essence to a point unrecognizable.

This element metastasized and, eventually, took hold of a force-sensitive individual. It is at this point that the threat I speak of began, as the notorious ‘Lost Star Children’, who were led astray by this unknown and unregistered force user. This individual, financed through personal connections, sought to use the Lost Star children to create his own dangerous cult. However, before this could reach fruition, myself and a strike team of Jedi took out this individual before he could be a greater harm to the galaxy. The only two Lost Star children to not be returned to their families are Esta Bowing and Koyso Chewai’in, who have tragically lost their lives in the fight against this evil.

As far as we are aware, those areas affected by this malignant taint will slowly heal back to life, but we have no way of telling how long this will take – or if they will ever truly be as they once were.

Let it be known that this could not have been completed if not for the valiant efforts by other factions of the Force. The Imperial Knights, Zeison Sha, Iron Knights, Matukai, Baran Do and others were instrumental in their support, many of which lost their lives – just as we have, during this painful process. Through it all, we have forged a new path of unity and strength – but let us not forget all that we have lost. Myself and the Order would ask the brave members of the galaxy to a one minute silence for those the galaxy has lost tomorrow morning at 11:00 Galactic Time, so that we may reflect and meditate on all that we hold sacred.

395.20 // Grandmaster’s Statement

Initiates, Padawans, Knights and Masters.

The past decade for us has not been easy, this spiritual war has spiraled out of control. We are no longer able to contain the void problem.

Before I speak on our next plans of action, I wish to recall our thoughts to the assault on the Ossus temple. On 394.06, the temple was attacked by a small force of what we believe to be void cultists. Our enemy ruthless, they hold no honour nor dignity. Though their attempt to seize the temple and capture the Nexus were futile, many of our brothers and sisters were killed during the attack. Remember that death is not the end of our journey. Those that have died have only become one with the force.

In order to minimize collateral we have taken the approach of this problem being an affair of the Jedi. Whether this is the case or not we are still unsure as the motive of our enemy isn’t clear.

However, it has been brought to our attention by some of the Order’s ambassadors that the void hasn’t only been attacking the Order. It has become apparent that other force-sensitive groups have also been attacked during this period. Again, we aren’t sure as to why but a theoritical guess made by the Council of First Knowledge believes that the enemy are searching for large concentrated areas of the forces.

This problem is bigger than us and is a direct threat to the force. I wish for us to extend our hand, to wielders of the dark and light to help us in the coming battles.

Kind Regards
Grandmaster Don’roq

394.24 // The Archology On Manaan

A brand-new research facility for the purposes of study and advancement of new biotechnology and medicinal treatments; “The Arcology”, has been recently unveiled on Manaan, built by a combined effort of both the Jedi Order, the Order of Shasa and the Republic Alliance with a consistent funding from many Medical Corporations and charitable organizations.
We had our own reporters on standby for the event along with a recorded speech translated into galactic basic from the newly-appointed head rector of The Arcology; Volko.

“Today marks a new beginning in medical research, we venture into the unknown and brave the new frontier of science and technology. Together, with the united power of our will, intelligence and focus, we can surpass the expectations and understandings of our predecessors and go beyond the limits of the stars.”

The Arcology is reported to be built over the site of Hrakert Station; An old Republic installation for mining Kolto under the Hrakert Rift in Manaan’s deep waters… The installations history is somewhat distorted over the centuries but some information remains in that it has been the headquarters of the Order of Shasa for a millennium.

The features of The Arcology also are reminiscent from what we were permitted to see, the large historical Academy of the Jedi on Dac. The Order of Shasa, the current owners of Hrakert Station will preside control over The Arcology with open invites to those of the Jedi as well as advanced medical students willing to volunteer their aid to the research.

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

391.01 // BREAKING NEWS: Jedi Escort destroyed by Vohaian Pi

A Jedi Team and an Utapauian humanatarian aid force above Skynara have been targets of a pirate raid, approximately two parsecs away from the system!

The humanatarian aid force had been given the task to gather supplies on Alzoc III, persumably a ”splinter” force of the devastated Vohai resistance led by the deceased Mother Mu’la. Images that have been recieved before the unfortunate destruction of the Utapauian dreadnought show that the attackers used very violent force to take down the escort, taking more than 142 souls, three Jedi among them.

Jedi Intelligence is currently observing the situation within the Arkansis and Skynara sectors to locate any potential threats by the Vohaian outlaws who are expected to be brought to justice.

The three Jedi that were killed in action were:

– Jedi Knight Qavul Yaraba
– Jedi Knight Elyaq Ra’hara
– Jedi Padawan Astamic Ionia

We would like to give credit to their selfless sacrifice and their heroic acts upon Skynara. Jedi are soon to be send and deployed to the vicinity of the southern Sectors of the galaxy to verify the situation in more detail.

Please remember the lost souls in good memory and may the force be with them and you.
