374.20 // Mysterious vigilante rescues Drexel Tharandon

Recently, the the president an major investor of the Tharandon Company, Drexel Tharandon, was rescued from a group of outlaws in the Rannon forest.

Shockingly, the press only learned about his kidnapping as soon as he was set free!

Tharandon claims that his rescuer is a superhero who managed to infiltrate the camp of the same outlaws who kidnapped him. This “vigilante” not only managed to sneak past the outlaw’s camp defenses without being detected, but he also managed to treat some serious wound Tharandon was suffering after the abduction, and led him safely to freedom, out of the camp itself.

After being asked about the identity of his vigilante, Tharandon refused to give away his identity, stating that:”My hero was very specific about this. As reward, he wanted nothing more than anonymity, so I intend to keep it that way.”

Are these outlaws a threat to Rannon security? The local RSF leader gave us no comment in such regards.

370.25 // Impromptu late night talks held.

Late last night, talks were held in the capital between the Cooperative Council of Rannon (CCR), Rannon Security Forces (RSF) and the Jedi Order.

Official details have yet to be published, but sources inside the RSF tell us that Captain Thorton, captain of the RSF has taken a particular interest in the Jedi over the last couple of cycles. Multiple sources have corroborated that the RSF has committed significant resources into pulling all relevant case-files involving the Jedi from across Rannon, with Thorton taking a particular interest on cases featuring property damage, endangering behaviour or fatalities.

The Jedi Order have been a permanent feature on Rannon for decades now, their temple located near the settlement Kenzie. Whilst they brought great security and stability to Rannon during the recent Imperium War it appears that the RSF have become concerned the Jedi have become more trouble than they are worth in times of peace.

Our requests for comments have remained unanswered by all parties.

370.23 // Luf Virus Epidemic on Vlemoth Port

Authorities on Vlemoth Port, Instrop Sector, have announced that the latest outbreak of Luf virus has exceeded estimates and is now being classified as an epidemic. So far there have been over 650 reported cases from major cities and settlements and 72 confirmed deaths, with both numbers expected to rise.

The first reported case occurred earlier in the cycle and local medical facilities have been struggling to contain the epidemic since. Today, the Arumorut governing body released a guide to avoiding catching the virus, as well as information on what to do if symptoms manifest. All noncommercial transport to the system has been temporarily suspended.

At the time of this issue, no other cases have been confirmed in the sector.

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 haulsĀ 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.

365.01 // 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…
