The Ramikad Declaration

mandalore statue_001GNW has learned that Buurenaar Tome of the combined Mandalorian clan has declared Bespin Mandalorian Territory. This follows the announcement that Tychus has assumed the title of Mand’alor.

Buurenaar Tome assured Baron Rhialto of Bespin that this is not an invasion but an offer of protection and that the Mandalorians consider Bespin their home. Bespin authorities have confirmed the assertion that the declaration of the Ramikad is in no way hostile. “..In essence, nothing has changed for all practical purposes. The Ramikad Aliit has simply formally declared their stance…” Baron Rhialto of Bespin informed GNW.

The declaration was followed by a shiny new statue on the promenade level of the city asserting the presence of the Ramikad in Bespin.

Dominion Assault on unknown Imperial Fleet

Anoat Siege - Hanger LandingGNW was able to get an onboard footage of an attack on a small unknown Imperial fleet. Several drop-ships breach the hanger that just deployed every fighter it could. Cannons clear a few troopers before the doors on the ships open and heavy-armored Assault team jumped out. Among them there seem to be a few individuals wielding lightsabers attacking a legion of stormtroopers. As the assault forces, move forward, the squad of stormtroopers started running for the lift but was unsuccessful as the lift was locked down by their own. Once the stormtroopers was taken out by the assault forces, A slicer was used to slice into the lift to get it active again.

Once the lift was active, the assault force rode to the next floor where they were met with heavy resistance. From the footage, we could see that assault force were facing more troopers as well as Sith. The assault force was victorious against their opposition.

From our sources, we learned that the assault forces that attacked the unknown imperial fleet were a group calling themselves Dominion. A former para-military group run by some Shistavanen extremists. Now with Agir leading it, who inherited the group from his grandmother.Anoat Siege - Corridor Agir-vs-Sith

Madam Chair Address Tome clan’s claims of corruption

lady chair Tiplaria_001

Greetings Fellow citizen of the federation. I come to you today to address the issue involving Fai’ra disappearance.  Fai’ra, as you know, was placed on trial for treason.  The trial was done fairly no bais attention. The most humane thing that the federation believed that was the right thing to do was not to kill her which is what most government would do when a citizen commits treason but we decide to place her in carbonite.  The Tome Clan wanted to execute Fai’ra. Tried blocking the path of her getting frozen, demanding that she be released to them so they could execute her for her crimes. I know that they had a concern of Fai’ra escaping and to them, it would have been better to solve the issue with her death.   Executing someone is not an issue I take lightly and so I was glad we work things out.  They were there when she was placed in carbonite and was there when we locked her up for storage.   The whole time we were open and didn’t hide anything from them and we will remain open.  Tome our citizen of the Federation and what concern our citizen concern me.  If they desire to investigate the federation, they are welcome to.  The GFFR is willing to cooperate with any questioning they may have into corruption within the Senate.

The Alor of tome Gabriele Aranda’s re-clarification on earlier interview with the Tome clan.

GNW headed back to Bespin on request by the Tome clan. While there we spoke with the Leader of the Tome Clan. Tome clan leader Gabriele Aranda had this to say.

” I’m the alor of tome, I wanted to redo your interview for two reasons, one being the message was, albeit, a bit too strong. Number two, because of a few things that have come to my attention that were not exactly addressed. so Gabriele Aranda addresses the two things not address in the first interview.

She stated, “One thing is, we are not and will not call for a war we are not prepared for yet. We have certain allies, we will rally to if they call for us. But our investigation is just that, We are only looking into rumors of GFFR corruption, Another issue that wasn’t addressed, or rather, not addressed properly is the attack on our home, and the attempted murder of my alor’ad and little sister.”

Then it was asked of her what wasn’t addressed about the attacker. she responded, “The attacker was a young girl, in her teens. Long brown hair, Heavily augmented and using a bow. After profiling her, I can tell she isn’t a killer. Her mission wasn’t a life, So murder has been ruled out. She was here for a particular item, The one discussed was indeed a dragon medallion of the serapin empire. Our investigation into the GFFR is linked to this in a way. Either that or just horrible timing. Either way, We will be investigating more into these matters and some rumors about them being behind fai’ra’s escape and disappearance. We think if they are, she might be using a new identity. And if so Well, I’ve been working on the creation of a genetic scanner linked to a database. We’re looking for an amaran with white fur. And that narrows it down quite a bit. We also have a rumor that she’s roaming the galaxy wearing a cloak over Mandalorian armor. Whatever it is, she will be brought to justice, and if the GFFR are involved, we will indeed drag this shadow to the light.

GNW then ask what crimes did Fai’ra committed against the Tome Clan. Gabriela Aranda said, “I’m glad you asked, At one point she was one of ours. When it came to her capture, any attempt in bringing her in for her crimes against not only the federation, but her betrayal and murder of Mandalorians, these numbers include the murders of her previous clan before us, Are stagnant, and demand justice. The longer whoever has freed her harbors her, The worse this gets. The ones responsible for her release and who are hiding her, threaten the lives of everyone in the galaxy. That’s why I’ve been working closely with the fel empire and the grand army of the republic clones on locating and bringing in this dangerous individual. To which her sentence is death and nothing less. I believe the GFFR are behind it, solely because she was under their watch as she was frozen, her sentence alone is unusual for her crimes. We urge that the GFFR come forward with a statement for the people to touch on this matter. So far, they have done nothing of the sort, which leads me to further believe they are the ones behind all of this. A crucial bit of evidence against fai’ra is now missing, my alor’ad, the one who has been getting the word out, just so happens to be alone when the attack happens. It speaks volumes about the intent of the shadow behind the recent attack, and fai’ra’s disappearance. Whoever our enemy is, they are creative. But I am far more so. After carefully studying these events, my speculation continues to go uncontested.”

The interview ended with her end with this statement. “Only one last thing. Let it be known, my alor’ad’s armor and speeder bike were damaged in the attack, all Mandalorian property, all very expensive. For not only the price of causing grief, conducting espionage, attempted murder, and property damage. The crimes against this group of individuals is now treason, aiding, and abiding, arson, premeditated manslaughter and guilt by association. They too will be brought before the masses and made to pay for their crimes against not only us but the people of this galaxy. Let it be known, I am cabur. An agent of manda, my will is for the people. And this shadow will be brought to light. To anyone out there, know these colors, and know them well. These are the colors of a Mandalorian with dedication. If you wish to turn yourselves in, I urge you to do so. If not, then may the best minds win.”
