A prisoner divide In the GFFR?

maxresdefault copyBreaking News:

Gryff McCallen is a prisoner I am told that was transferred from Mos Eisley into GFFR Custody.  He was captured by Soron Skirata of Clan Skirata. Our sources, tell us that there were terrorist attacks on Mos Eisley and Fel Empire put a bounty on him.

Gryff McCallen is a well-known Merchant who would visit Yavin IV from time to time selling fruits and vegetables. He is also the former leader of the Star Wind Clan.

At this moment, he is being held in one of the cells on Yavin IV. KOJ Grandmaster Iria has no plans of turning him over to anyone, not even to the Federation until they get more answers of why a bounty has been placed on Gryff McCallen.

Will this issue of one prisoner divide certain members of the GFFR? Can Yavin IV and the Fel Empire come to some type of agreement?  Only time will tell.  GNW will keep you update as soon as we learn more.

Break down on the hunted asteroid

With our Communication satellites across the known galaxy, GNW picked up this warning message from Captain Durso

If you found this message you may still be able to spare your lives. I am recording this message in hopes of saving would be travelers the same fate as I. My ship became disabled and I landed on the station having little choice otherwise. The station is all but abandoned, less a few unnatural guest still roaming about. The asteroid has become a center of the evil of which I have never felt before. While most things on the station are explainable there are things happening that defy reality. It would also appear I was not the first to venture in this area of Hutt space. A cargo ship carrying a most horrendous creature called a Massif landed on the station. The creatures became unsettled, escaped, and are running wild on the hangar deck. My situation is bleak and hopeless, without my ship I am doomed to this hell. I tried to make my way multiple times to the detention level I discovered that a machine is located there that can fabricate the parts I need to repair my ship. I tried, again and again, to get to the lower detention level but the spirits that inhabit this station are most determined to keep me here to my end which I can only hope comes quick. My final warning to anyone that sees this message. Leave this station at once and do not return.

landing party_001 A party set out to investigate this asteroid and GNW was there to record the events for our viewers. These creatures called Massif ran out and attacked us. We were able to take them down with our blasters and lightsabers. As we traveled deeper, we were confronted by ghost troopers. While there, I discovered a chewed arm. I don’t know if it was part of Captain Durso’s crew. After fighting off the spirit and the Massif, our crew was badly injured. We found a medbay in Asteroid and treated our injuries. There were some who agreed to take nap in the medbay. How anyone could sleep in this place I don’t know. We were able to fix our ship and get out.

GNW warns our viewer to listen to Captain Durso warning and stay away from this asterghost trooper_001oid.torn arm_001creature_001

“I, Prilla Bareesh, Lorda of Nar Shaddaa and Throbon Inijic, Lorda of Mos Espa are happy to announce that the New Republic and Galactic Empire have had their forces stand down after the events at Hutt Night. In return as a gesture of goodwill, the Bareesh and Inijic Clans announce that all travel embargoes, bounties, and hostility against the New Republic, it’s citizens and its allies are canceled in the interest of galactic peace.”

All out war with Inijic & Bareesh Hutts against Supreme Chancellor Valara Kira

Throbon Inijic Reply:

The emblem of the Inijic Clan appears… A droid’s voice is heard… “The illustrious Throbon would like to caution the citizens of the New Republic that their leadership has ignored all attempts at negotiation and such propaganda attempts will not go unanswered. The travel ban was placed after it became apparent that this Senate has no wish to negotiate in good faith. Do not confuse the facts… We merely are reciprocating the sanctioning of Hutt Space as instituted unfairly by the radical and untempered passions of those in power on Chandrilla… That is all.”
Prilla Bareesh reply:

“I Prilla Bareesh am issuing a bounty on Chancellor Valara Kira of the New Republic for ten million credits. I want her unharmed as she will be held in Hutt court for her crimes. I have warned the chancellor NOT to insult the Bareesh name any further. This insect will be taught a lesson it won’t forget.”

Bounty: Valara Kira (alayni.axelrad)
Price: Ten Million Credits (ILM)
Wanted arrested and unharmed as much as possible

The New Republic Responds to Prilla Bareesh Arrest Statement

Greetings Republic Citizens. Yesterday in the AM via the Federation news frequencies, The Bareesh Hutt clan announced that all citizens, AND allies, of the New Republic, were to be murdered on sight if they visit the world of Nar Shaddaa.

The Republic is extremely disappointed in the actions of the Hutts, in it’s proclamations to harm the innocent. The Republic had put sanctions on the Hutts due to similar behavior, and have now shown their true nature to the galaxy as they make vile threats against Republic visitors to their world. While it is true the Republic had sanctions against those coming from Hutt space, we would never murder one of their citizens who violated this declaration.

Due to the barbaric clan’s declaration upon our citizens, all military personnel are completely restricted from entering Hutt space, and all citizens are requested to venture into Hutt Space at their OWN RISK.

The Republic will NOT sink to Hutt level and retaliate against this brutal act. But neither will it treat with individuals who seek to get our attention under threat. All attempts from the Hutts at communication with the New Republic shall be blocked until this barbaric order is lifted and our citizen safety assured.

Thank you.
