While the prominent Besadii Hutts, Malignant and Krulne [later joined by Sunee the Hutt] gathered on Ryloth’s Jixuna Resort on Wednesday for their Business Night, joined by Shaka the Hutt, the Fa’athra Clan hutt cousins, Bubaj and Hutt, The Reavers, Laura the Representative of the Bareesh Hutt Clan and others, the Besadii Leader Chaggah was notably absent.
Malignant Besadii presided over the meeting with the announcement that “..the war between the Fatale Clan and the Besadii Clan is over. The Hutts will no longer have to worry about Femme or her minions as the war is over. I would like to thank all those who helped and contributed, and pay Susan the 5 million credit reward.. not for ending the war, but for playing an instramental part in it. Mad will get you the credits. So, war is over! Celebrations are in order”
Susan Tamalyn collected the 5 million credit reward, however the assassination of Whadii Besadii is still an open issue as Femme Fatale is now not believed to have been Whadii’s killer and an investigation is underway on Seraphina One.
With the main announcement of the evening made, the Hutts went on to discuss other business such as the spice trade and a representative Hulio of the Vandrus Corporation paid tribute to the Hutts for safe passage of their cargo and listed their many services and operations such as cybernetics, star ship engines, medical research and weapons which drew interest from the audience especially medical research for cloning.
Hulio then went on to explain the value of Nova Crystals that Vandrus Corporation mines which are used to make blasters more powerful.
Eliza D’Camarilla of Emberline offered the services of her Mistryl Shadow Guards to interested buyers, followed by the Jedi Lenore of the TJO who invited the Hutts to a Galactic Trade and treaty Conference. The idea of the Trade Conference though was met with reluctance on the part of the Hutts possibly as they preferred adhering to their current Hutt and Business Night traditions where interested parties would offer them tribute to pitch their business offerings. That this conference was being organized by a Jedi further fueled suspicion and mistrust in the Hutts as to the motives of this Conference with Malignant saying “…I don’t like the idea of this trade union and think Besadii would be better served by trying to disassemble it before it grows into a powerhouse, if in deed it even can..” and Hutt Berpa Skun saying “..I am also not a big fan of doing business with Jedis. Jedis are my enemies”
However despite the Jedi Lenore clarifying “.. “the conference is not led by a Jedi or any group in particular, if the Hutts wish to represent their interests it would make sense to come to the conference and see for yourself that its not led by any one group, hence why the conference goes to planet to planet..” the Conference still did not have many takers.
The Jedi Lenore also announced that she is searching for information relating to the whereabouts of her Grandmother the Director of the Legion and that she was searching for ruins and remnants of the Rakata and that the Legion was offering a reward for any information or artifacts on the Rakata.
GNW are keenly observing the subsequent developments regarding the search for Whadii’s killer, the Vandrus Corporation, the idea of a Galactic Trade and treaty Conference and the search for the Director of the Legion and will update our readers on these stories as events unfold.
The Iridonian Smackdown the main event of Friday’s Fight Night at New Alderaan lived up to expectations with the vociferous crowd cheered on the ship Captain Xotru Klavox as he put up a dazzling display of skill to defeat the brute force contender Rundgrar.
Rundgrar had a lot of bets riding on him leading to the Fa’athra Clan Hutts the promoters of Fight Night raking in a good amount of credits from the duel. Rundgrar kept charging at his opponent who skillfully dodged and danced around the ring countering the hard punches and kicks with his deft footwork. Captain Klavox dazed Rundgrar by landing a series of blows to his head and finished the fight off with a sleeper hold rendering the bigger Zabrak unconscious.
The crowd was treated to a second fight, between Twilek bounty hunter Izi’Shizu and the Fight Night host Mara Starrdancer. Both women were evenly matched with Izi attempted to gain an advantage through her acrobatic kicks and jumps which was countered by Mara’s high tolerance to pain and skilled footwork to avoid any serious injury. With neither combatant able to execute a finishing blow the second fight was adjudicated a draw.
The Friday Fight Nights at New Alderaan is now a regular event attracting some of the best unarmed combatants in the Galaxy. Stay tuned for GNW’s next report.

It is important to protect and revitalize our temples. We are experts in all forms of pleasure and relaxation. The services sell themselves”
Just ahead of tonight’s fight between Iridonians Kotru Klavox and Rundgrar GNW’s Editor Kinsa spoke to the latter to get a sense of what the fighter was all about.
Rundgrar was at his aggressive best indicating he was fighting for the credits and that he “…loved beating people up.” There was no shortage of bravado from the tall well built zabrak who seemed in good physical shape.
“They tried to make me a slave, but they failed” he said when asked about his past on Dathomir and replied that “…I have been sparring and beating people up, lifting weights and exercising but nothing like beating people up in the ring for a good workout” when asked how he was preparing for the fight.
When asked about his opponent Rundgrar looked straight into one of the cameras “Kotru Klavox ? yeah I’m talking to you… you may be able to thrill news reporters with your fancy dance moves…. but remember when you step in the ring with me, I bring the fight… and I bring you a world of pain.. you are gonna hear and feel bone hammering flesh and my hands breaking your ribs… you are gonna taste your own blood as your mouth fills up with it.. … remember that Klavox! remember that!” ending his rant with a cold silent stare for a few minutes.
Rundgrar stated that he would spend his credits on liquour and fine women if he won. However the live audience at our studio was not impressed sensing he was probably afraid and hence puffing up his talk with bravado. For now the smart money seems to be on the odds on favorite Xotru Klavox. Don’t miss the fight only at New Alderaan tonight at 7:30 pm SLT!
