Blogging on the Galactic News & Current Affairs

Welcome to Galactic News Watch

We cover the news all across the galaxy of the Star Wars Roleplay Community in Second Life.

The news is not planned with time or a place! It happens unexpectedly!

A Bounty on the Supreme Chancellor

GNWAnother news source reported that:  “ Rolga the Hutt has placed a bounty on the Supreme Chancellor. The Senate met this week and did not look kindly on such actions. Sanctions have now been placed on Hutt Space and all trade halted until the bounties have been lifted. The Republic also expressed it’s extreme disappointment in our allies, the Galactic Federation of Free Republics, most notably Yavin and the Kalway Jedi Order for standing side by side with Rolga the Hutt in a new alliance with the Bareesh clan despite knowing they intend to have the Supreme Chancellor murdered.
The alliance with the Galactic Federation of Free Republics was declared at an end
and sanctions placed as well for the time being.”

GNW Source reported that it wasn’t Rolga The Hutt that done it but a former member of byss who put a bounty on serveal people over a  grudge. Our source said, “One of Byss’s top ranking officials believes the person who made the bounties is a former member who has a long-standing grudge against all three people who got bounties placed on them. And the person who believes it’s a former Byss member got one on themselves.”  GNW was given the person name and we have records of the person who place the bounty on the Supreme Chancellor.   We were told by our source that person who made the bounty wanted to remain unknown.  Attention may raise between the Hutts, the Republic, the Galactic Federation of Free Republics so GNW will allow this person name to be known.

Bounty issuer name: Braelin Daggoth

Bounty target name: Valara Kira~Alayni Axelrad

ILM Credit bounty price: 20k

OOC note:  We were told that this person created a new account to place this bounty.  BraelinDaggoth Resident: I have posted marks. I wish my primary to remain unknown. Thus this alt name. I paid the prices. That is all. Thank you.

Nar Shaddaa Swoop Races (Aug 4th, 2018)

Snapshot _ Mos Espa _ Nar Shaddaa _ Ilum (SWRP) [ILM-CS only], Nar Shaddaa and the Mighty Rolga Bareesh recently saw the return of swoop racing hosted through their streets and tunnels. With a few prestigious Hutt onlookers and various other spectators, 5 racers took the calling to test their skills against one another, and seek top throne as swoop bike champion.

Each racer was given two laps each to qualify on their own for their starting position on the grid, starting with Karma Meifft, who experienced technical complications and was forced to retire her run. She would later try again and manage to set a time, only after Minx Bade experienced technical complications of her own that would hinder her lap. In the end, no racer could match Luke Carmona’s blistering time of 47.731 seconds.

The qualifying order went as follows:
1 ~ 47.731 – Luke Carmona
2 ~ 49.636 – Emmy Bloodbury
3 ~ 50.514 – Lulu Anjali Lemieux
4 ~ 54.039 – Karma Meifft
5 ~ 55.161 – Minx Bade

Race 1 began with each racer lining up on the grid and being started off via an automated countdown that would unleash them for a total of 6 laps. Luke Carmona would get off very slowly after having forgotten to increase his thrust, and found himself trailing the field upon arrival at the first corner. Emmy Bloodbury and Minx Bade would take the leads of the race and battle for position, with Emmy managing to hold her place at the head of the field. Luke would soon move into the third and find himself caught behind 2nd place Minx Bade, whereas Lulu Anjali Lemieux reported that she had later gone off course during the initial lap and found herself in a building, retiring herself from the round. Lap two would eventually see Luke Carmona make his way around Minx Bade through the tunnel section and find himself behind Emmy Bloobury, but being unable to catch her by the end of the lap as a result of avoiding blaster fire from 3rd place via the speeder’s built-in dual laser cannons. It wouldn’t be until midway through lap 3 that Luke would pass Emmy for the lead of the race, managing from that point to slowly extend his lead and ride his speeder home to a maiden victory, followed by Emmy Bloodbury in 2nd and Minx Bade in 3rd.

Race 1 Results:
1 ~ Luke Carmona
2 ~ Emmy Bloobury
3 ~ Minx Bade
4 ~ Karma Meifft
5 ~ Lulu Anjali Lemieux

Race 2 would include all 5 racers yet again, this time lining up on the grid in reverse order of their finishing positions from Race 1, placing Lulu Anjali Lemieux on pole position and Luke Carmona in the back. Upon race start, Luke would meander his way through a thick crowd of swoop bikes and take the lead in 2 corners, the others having gotten tangled up with one other. He would from there extend his lead by a sizable distance before yet again coming across the line in the top position, the 2nd and 3rd place positions being swapped from the race before, with MSnapshot _ Mos Espa _ Nar Shaddaa _ Ilum (SWRP) [ILM-CS only]2inx Bade coming home in 2nd and Emmy Bloodbury in 3rd.

Race 2 Results:
1 ~ Luke Carmona
2 ~ Minx Bade
3 ~ Emmy Bloobury
4 ~ Karma Meifft
5 ~ Lulu Anjali Lemieux

The Nar Shaddaa Swoop Races are expected from this point on to be a bi-weekly event using various race formats, including but not limited to Tournaments, Eliminations, and Team Efforts.

Filling the weekends between race events will be none other than Bolo Ball, which will be hosted at the Nar Shaddaa Bolo Ball stadium.

A Daughter and Mother reunited

Vice Chairman Pjaysiv and her lost Daughter Pelora Panteer_001Nearly 800,000 children are reported missing each year. That’s more than 2,000 a day. 57 percent of them come home alive and 40 percent are killed. The rest remain open cases. It is great news when a child is found and is brought home like the family GNW had the pleasure to speak to today. GNW was asked not to give the location of the family because of the fear that the child may be taken again.

Vice Chair Pjaysiv Panteer of the GFFR told us that before she got into politic, she was married to a Jedi and their home was on New Alderaan. She goes on to say after two years of marriage, they had Pelora. Then she jumps head to tell us how Pelora was taken. she said, “My husband and I was attacked by Sith. Though my husband tried to hold off the Sith, there was too many for him to handle. He was killed and I was left for dead and my daughter Pelora was taken.”

Pelora Panteer has no memory of what happened that day all she does remember is that they hurt her with light sticks as she calls it and blasters.

Our story continues with Vice Chair Panteer telling us how she found her daughter. She goes on to say that she was at the Senate meeting on Nar Shaddaa when the building was attacked. Being informed that they were in a safe place, she said she continued the meeting. After the meeting, she and another person who I am told will remain anonymous, found a young lady name Angel. Angel was badly wound and was rush to Mos Espa because the medbay on Nar Shaddaa had not been rebuilt yet.

Pelora Panteer who was going by Angel at the time told GNW that she didn’t know who attacked her but said she was at the Embassy on Nar Shaddaa because something kept telling her that she had to go to that place and that something or someone was looking for her.

On Tatooine in a medbay on Mos Espa,  Angel was fighting for her dear life. She had lost a lot of blood and to make matter worst the medbay on Tatooine was low on blood supplies. Vice Chair Pjaysiv Panteer allow her blood to be tested.

It might seem like blood is blood and it all looks pretty much the same to the naked eye. But although all blood contains the same basic components (red cells, white cells, platelets, and plasma), not everyone has the same types of markers on the surface of their red blood cells. These markers (also called antigens) are proteins and sugars that our bodies use to identify the blood cells as belonging in our own system. There are 4 different blood types. The most common blood type in the population is type O. The next most common is blood type A, then B and the rarest is blood type AB. The blood type of the donor must be compatible with the recipient. The rules for blood type in transplantation are the same as they are for blood transfusion. Some blood types can give to others and some may not. Blood type O is considered the universal donor. People with blood type O can give to any other blood type. Blood type AB is called the universal recipient because they can receive an organ or blood from people with any blood type.

The immune system produces proteins known as antibodies that act as protectors if foreign cells enter the body. Depending on which blood type you have, your immune system will produce antibodies to react against other blood types.

If a patient is given the wrong blood type, the antibodies immediately set out to destroy the invading cells. This aggressive, whole-body response can give someone a fever, chills, and low blood pressure. It can even lead vital body systems like breathing or kidneys to fail.

While testing Vice Chair Panteer’s blood, the medical droid discovered that Angel was the daughter of the Vice Chair. Pelora Panteer told GNW that she didn’t expect the results and that she is still is in shock of the news. Vice Panteer told us that she hasn’t been with her daughter in a long time and she plans to reconnect and that she was glad to get a second chance. She goes on to say not many families who lose a child can say that. Pelora Panteer is hoping that the Sith that took her will never take her back.

If one of your children have been taken, the best way to get them home safe is to get the child’s holo image in front of as many eyeballs as possible as quickly as possible.

A collaboration between KOJ and the Hutt Bareesh Clan

hotel and cantina_001If you ever travel through the Arkanis sector, stop by Tatooine’s the Braying Bantha and its bar and casino that is called the White Saber. Temperature is very hot with the planet’s hot and arid climate so make sure you dress cool. Don’t worry about drinks because the bar and casino have plenty of it.

Yesterday GNW had the pleasure to travel to The Braying Bantha on Mos Espa Tatooine. While we were there, we met up with fellow Master Jedi from KOJ Master Spintrus. We learned from her that there was a collaboration between KOJ and the Hutt Bareesh Clan. This joint venture as she calls it involves the newly refurbished bar and casino The White Saber. The Hutts bankroll the Casino while Kalway administrate. The proceeds profited from the White Saber is donated to charity to benefit the war orphans left by the unfortunate events of Nar Shaddaa.

GFFR Senate’s latest news, top stories & analysis

Snapshot_002Using the recording given to us by the Vice-Chair, GNW was able to bring you a report of the GFFR Senate meeting that took place on Yavin IV. The location was at Marsh Valley.

The Senate meeting opening up with The Vice-Chair Pjaysiv Panteer.  She proceeded with greeting all who were there and then began with getting a census of whether the recording of the last meeting was correctly recorded. Here is the holo record of what took place at the meeting.

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “Greetings. I now call this meeting open. We will start with the recording of our last meeting. Please let me know if there is any objection to last meeting recordings.” She sends them the recording of the last meeting to all members of the Senate that were present.

Thalia Spintrus sipped her caff quietly not even sure why she was here.

Aniara Csapla looks over the notes and sighs remembering all that went on but nods. “All of it is here.”

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes) looks around the room to each as she takes a quick look through the report “I agree, it looks good.”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “I haven’t heard from Tython.  Is the recording approve?”

Ehob’Jani said, “Yeah, it’s fine.”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “Good! We will start with old business and then move to new business.  first order of old business is how are things with healing those who have been sick. Any word on the Hutts lowing the price of the healing crystal?”

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes): “We’re continuing our efforts on both things, though the process is slow. Rolga has announced that he is allowing travel to the upper levels of Nar Shaddaa once again, so his mood has improved. In the near future, he may be more inclined to lower his price. I also believe the Jedi Master may have some interesting and off topic news?”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “Is the Jedi master present now?”

Thalia Spintrus (taliousgotk): “I have news?”

Aniara Csapla shakes her head and sighs deeply then grits her teethe letting out a mild growl. “Do we have to go over this again? Let those inflicted suffer their fate. It seems that nobody wishes to do what is needed and held back by something as minor as a few Billion credits. New Alderaan and Yavin IV both have more then enough in their coffers to cover the original asking price yet refuse to do so. I count this as a lost cause and move on.”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “I guess it will be issue we will have to decide what to do in the future, but for now those infected will have to be separated from the rest of the public. moving on to other old business. How is the issues of war with Sith and the Hutts?”

Thalia Spintrus  “You refer to the war that included the subjugation of Nar Shaddaa?”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “At the last meeting, I was told that Sith plan to fight the Hutts so that they may get the crystal from the spoils of the war. We need to know if that war still being plan or have the Sith move off?”

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes) raises her hand

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “I see your hand senator. You may have the floor.”

Thalia Spintrus smiles.. “I think the Sith have had their hands full of late in other sectors.. that concern seems to have been replaced.” She smiled sipping her caff “As for my report on my travels that is at the time a matter concerning the Jedi of Yavin and the Jedaii of Tython.. if the government of Tython wishes to make a statement about what is going on, I will answer what I can after.”

Aniara Csapla lifts her datapad looking over the data then glances over at Thalia and back to the datapad. “It seems that the new Empress, Rowe I think she is called, has been making headway and absorbing older rogue Sith factions all across the Galaxy. She wants to send a message it seems.” She pauses letting other spake as she goes over more of her notes. “It also appears that some Hutt named Gor gun, Gor gan. Gor something held a Hutt Night on Nal Hutta stating he will defend against the Empires that would attack him. There were Sith present then there was an attack by some crazed Purple Twi female. Though it is unsure if she acted alone or was hired.”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “If the senator of Tython wish to answer that question, she may but the matter of the Jedi the GFFR will not get involve in. Senator Aristocra, the floor is still yours.”

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes) nods her head slightly “Reports indicate that the Sith Empire based on Byss has been quarreling with a rival Sith Empire group based on Apatros, after a meeting took place to join forces. The offer was rejected by the Apatros Sith with an insult. There have been reports of an attack directly on Apatros, from the Byss Sith Empire but to what degree remains unclear. It’s hostile space so any information is sketchy at best. After the initial attack, there was a further report that the Sith of apatros had approached the ones from Byss to begin negotiations once again.” she takes a breath “While this is unfortunate for the civilians in those sectors of space, it has been a blessing for others. Hutt space has begun bolstering it’s defenses in preparations for the Sith Empire to attack. We believe it’s still imminent”

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes): “I relinquish the floor.” bows slightly to each in the room.

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “It is a good thing the Sith are attacking each other, so that maybe they will leave us alone but it is also sad because their citizens are the ones that get hurt.  If the Senate would agree, I think it is important that we also boast up our defenses.”

Aniara Csapla taps a few buttons on her datapad and nods quickly. “Chiss Space is always on the Defense. I also have a Fleet around Nar Shaddaa and one in route to Tattooine. Though I can recall the one from Tattooine if the Fel Empire would like to take the lead on this?” She looks around for members of the Fel Empire and nods. “I take your silence as a No.”

Thalia Spintrus  “The entire galaxy seems to be going to war.. from the Mandalorians to the Imperial Remnant Forces.., to the Cress Empire, and the New Republic. So far this war has not touched Federation interests per se.. but that may not last. I suggest that border security and each member world expect possible interruptions of trade with these affected worlds.. most notably.. Chandrilla… Kashyyk and Taris. These systems my experience trade blockades and ship searches should any approach to close… I advise caution and observation until such a time as official correspondence comes from the New Republic or any of the other factions.”

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes): “I agree with the Jedi Master and the Chair. GFFR Space should begin preparations for bolstering defenses. The Sith are likely to as surprise attack us as to continue battling each other.”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “Under the old Chair’s Administration there was formation of a spy network that was called Inter-Galactic Operation. This group was voted in by Senate and kept in the dark from the public. News of our involvement of freeing a prisoner from carbonite using this organization got out by the same person we had freed. Credit are now being used on Tython to restore this organization. We will use this group to gather any information on any threats to the GFFR and take them out. If any members here would like to offer their citizen to be trained as member of this organization, please speak with Master Acker.”

Thalia Spintrus  shakes her head.. “Master Acker may be not available for some time.. I would suggest speaking to Master Mistwalker in the interim.”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “I haven’t heard from Master Acker in some time. Why isn’t she not available?”

Thalia Spintrus  sighs.. “This is a matter I am loathed to discuss without conferring with the NJO.. but apparently there was some incident with Master Acker on a foreign world and she was age regressed to a child.. until her condition is improved one way or another.. I highly recommend some other contact.”

Aniara Csapla looks over the information she was given and shakes her head. “How resourceful is this ‘Spy’ Network of yours?”

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes) looks across to Thalia “Age regressed? That is some impressive nanite technology.”

Thalia Spintrus “Everything with Chiss is technology.” She smiled pleasantly…

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes) looks back over to Thalia “It was a Force ability? I didn’t know that …..was possible.”

Thalia Spintrus  “Not a Force ability..” She nodded… “Something else.” She leaned against the railing obviously exhausted.. the caff falling from her hand.

Aniara Csapla glances over at Thalia then to Tes and softly cackles. “Science can explain all things in time. The Chiss do not need to rely on the use of the Curse of the Force to do our bidding.”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “To answer your question, Master Acker is the best person I know to gather Intel on our enemies. If she unable to train new recruits. We may need to find a new director.”

Thalia Spintrus  smiles.. “Explain that to Thrawn.” She winked at Csapla.”

Thalia Spintrus  walks slowly out of the Senate chamber and to the small getaway building on the other side of the valley.

Aniara Csapla grits her teeth and clinches her fist at the mention of Thrawn. “That man was a traitor to his people.”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “I will start looking for someone and once I find the person then Senate can make the choice of approving this person. until then all I would need from this body is citizens to join. they can come and speak to me until I find a new director.
Pjaysiv Panteer said, “Is that ok with this body?”

Aniara Csapla slowly looks herself over and nods with a smile. “Nothing wrong with this body.”

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes): “As long as the Tythonians agree, It has my vote.”

Aniara Csapla sighs as she looks around then looks at Tes and the others. “We do need more Blue in the Galaxy.”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “That we do. If there is no more, new business this will end our meetings. We will meet on Nar at the next meeting.”

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes): “That sounds like a good place to wrap up. In the mean time, Rolga has opened the upper levels of Nar Shaddaa to the public again. Feel free to come take a look.”

Aniara Csapla nods and smiles “Do bring some protection or even a security detail. It is Hutt Space after all.”

Pjaysiv Panteer said, “safe travels to you all.”

Aristocra Tilz’enro’sabosen (Tes) bows to the room and turns to head to her shuttle.

Ehob’Jani heads back to the spaceport to return to Tython

So from what we heard, Those infected by The Sundering still don’t have cure and are being separated from the public. The whole galaxy is at war with each other from what Master Spintrus said. GNW will play that back.

Thalia Spintrus “The entire galaxy seems to be going to war… from the Mandalorians to the Imperial Remnant Forces.., to the Cress Empire, and the New Republic. So far this war has not touched Federation interests per say.. but that may not last. I suggest that border security and each member world expect possible interruptions of trade with these affected worlds.. most notably.. Chandrilla… Kashyyk and Taris. These systems my experience trade blockades and ship searches should any approach to close… I advise caution and observation until such a time as official correspondence comes from the New Republic or any of the other factions.”

Two Sith fractions are at war with each other but negotiation are being sought. The GFFR is planning to build up their defense even though they are at peace at this time but want to be prepared just in case war come to their end. The reestablishment of the IGO is being rebuilt on Tython and citizen of the GFFR are being sought after. GNW will keep you informed of further information we receive from the GFFR Senate.
