Arbitras Rexsus II sighed “we’ve tried many to make alliances with but it seems Prudii knows what’s what and we’ve decided to merge with them”

Arbitras Rexsus II nods ” It was 15 days this next month twenty-fifth of May these Galatia basic years we destroyed Death star II we accomplished imperials as rebels then we will now ” he’d say as quote ” Ewoks as many republic citizens don’t see know what they’ve been through those years and beyond ..I intend to educate that my fellow furries friends are not always primitive “

So, for that, we offer our most sincere thanks. We look forward to partnering with the citizens  and businesses of Taris, and we look forward to being the number one provider for your news.

Shade Regime Takes Prudii Stronghold

We arrived on the scene on Tattooine at the former site of the Prudii Clan stronghold, now the site of fire and fury as the Shade Regime has conquered and taken it for it’s own. A pile of a half-dozen bodies laid strewn upon the floor as I exited the shuttle that was sent for my arrival, and I met with Darth Toruk, the  Supreme Leader of the Shade Regime.arrival_004

For those unfamiliar, The Prudii Clan is a Mandalorian clan lead by Vod Prudii, formerly housed on Tattoine before these attacks. Darth Toruk informed us that he wiped out the Prudii many long years ago in his apprentice years. And stated that their leader survived Carbonite freezing after his family was killed by Darth Toruk. “My Troops are hunting down every supporter of Prudii as we speak and thanks to my Hutt business partner it will be a easy process”, Said Toruk.arrival_008” I presume Vod Prudii and his second lead have scurried back to their Rebel allies on Endor while his scouts stay hidden like cowards… Since they made ties with GRAE it’s made them top of my threat list” he continued on. He went on to indicated that his Hutt partner mentioned was Slurm, Toruk’s reported best friend.

This story then took me to the Forest Moon of Endor, where I was fortunate enough to speak with Vod Prudii himself, and with Elder Yodan, the second lead of GRAE. When asked for a quote, Prudii had this to say: “Blood will be made for blood or a swift justice will be made”. When asked if GRAE would continue to stay aligned with Clan Prudii, Elder Yodan stated, “”We will see this outcome to the bitter end ..GRAE will stand by side our Mandalorian friends this dire times. They have lost many this cold blooded attack against them but gained any family in GRAE since this… The Resistance has their back”.Endor_001

New Ships Bring Security to the Republic

Today marks another great landmark for the Republic as construction was finalized just minutes before our tour of the Thranta Mk 2 Class ship that is currently stationed at Bespin. After nearly three weeks of construction, we finally got the opportunity to not only have a good look around, but also to get some of the details about this creative design from it’s designer, Rhialto Tereshechenko who is also the Baron Administrator of new Tibannopolis Bespin, Shipwright, and member of the Republic.

First we visited the main Bridge. With consoles ready to fly, this ship features two seats in the cockpit and other auxiliary consoles along the rear wall as well. Thranta Class Mk 2 BridgeNext, we visited the Medical bay. This ship is equipped with a full hospital suite including bacta tanks, surgical beds, and more, so that it can dually serve as a Hospital ship if needed.

The Cargo bay was quite spacious and while it already had some cargo in it, it seemed to be far from reaching its capacity. Cargo Bay_001 “The photos may not describe the functionality of the ship. It is made for extremely prolonged periods of time in transit, not needed to dock at port for 2 standard years if fully stocked. It can serve as a relief ship if need be due to its large cargo carrying capacity and to some extent can be used as a medical ship.”, said Rhialto Tereshechenko. 

 

Crew quarters and Captain’s quarters are also available and feature beds, an Autochef, shower, and toilet. Also featured was Engineering, where the ship’s drives are maintained and utilized, and the Comm / Conference room. When asked if the ship had yet been named, Rhialto indicated that it had not yet been named, but stated “the model is a Thranta MK 2…more advanced version of the older Thranta class, sharing a bit more in common with the older Hammerhead.”

Pjaysiv Panteer, Supreme Chancellor of the Great Galactic Republic said, “The Ships  means safe boarders for the citizens of the Republic. It also gives hope that the Republic is ready to protect our citizens and our allies. As of late there has been news of attacks by  Sith on Taris and Mandalorian space. We want our allies and our enemies to know that the Republic is ready to defend and end oppression by our adversaries abroad…  now that we have new ships, the Galactic Republic is looking for good  man and woman to Join The Galactic Republic  Interplanetary Military (GRIM)  Flier Division. There will be great opportunity for those who join with  (ILM) credit pay based on mission given to you by this Great Government.” She went on to say that interested parties can contact  “Vice Chancellor ZannahBlue or any members of the Senate which are  Rhialto Tereshchenko of bespin,  Alita Steampunk of Republic of Balmorra and  Fel empire and LME, Mustafaaab Connoisseur of Naboo Space Sector, Pelora Panteer ( LydiaTaraMoon) of New Alderaan and Tiplaria ( AbigailClemencaeu)  of Yavin IV.”

The Expansion of GRAE

rex and mary jane_001It was February 25 when GNW wrote about the marriage of the happy couple Arbitras Rexsus II and his wife Mary Jane Rexsus. so It has been over two months and GNW travels to the Forest moon Endor to look into the happy couple to see how things were for them for these past few months.

On our visit, we learned where the couple spent their honeymoon. Mary Jane Rexsus said, “Oh it was beautiful we went first a secluded beach on Naboo, and traveled to Tython and many other peaceful planets ..then we saw the hidden gems of Endor which had just more pretty beaches and lovely mountains”

I was told that they visited the old Gupin Sacred grounds. which she said that her husband Rex had told her all about and how he’s the last of their kind. She said that The Gupin Mountains are sad but beautiful. I have never been to the Gupin Mountains on Endor so I want to know much about them. Rex said, “Gupin is half my race. They are a very powerful Shapeshifting race. There have been tales of them migrating here many many years ago. The Ewoks will tell you how they’ve protected them over the years but were lead to near extinction because of the Empire “he nods “They had homes way up the Forest moon’s Mountains which is why it’s called that”

One of the things I notice when I arrived on the base of GRAE was the completed renovation of the base. The room we spoke in was the Tyler dormitory. It was named in the remembrance of Rex’s son. Rex told us that there was a statue across from where I was in honor of Jessant Cassius. Rex told us that Grae had lost many cadets and recruits. As I notice, they continue to grow and to honor those they lost.

Mary Jane Rexsus smiles warmly and said, “There’s even an office for me AND infirmary above us and a new Council room for us” She also said, “I actually have two recruits I am training now and we’re expanding and making alliances ” she nods with a happy tone ” With a few hiccups and attacks from our Regime enemy and Hutt ties” she frowns at this.

They still have the Regime and their new Hutt ally to deal with but their new allies Mandalorian clan Prudii seem promising as they are the enemies of their enemies.
Rex said, ” “The Prudii Leader has been very generous with us and have seen to our aid quite a few times,” he said softly ” They are a very unique Mandalorian clan”

Mary Jane Rexsus and Arbitras Rexsus II last words were they were looking for anyone willing to join them and their family. they are welcome anyone around the galaxies willing to enlist.
