The Chairman nearly taken hostage

GNW recently learned that the Chairman of the Galactic Federation of Free Republics, and Queen of New Alderaan, Her Royal Highness Rebellia was nearly taken hostage by a member of the Shadow Sith Clan.  Federation Security and other Federation Members identified the Sith attacker as Lord Arlen who is a prominent member of the Shadow Sith Clan.  This attack comes on the back of the recent battle fought between the Shadow Sith Clan and New Alderaan Security right on the Palace rooftop.

The attacker was beaten back ironically not by Federation or New Alderaan forces but by suspected Sith group who was earlier involved in a confrontation with a New Alderaaan Security Trooper.

The motivation for one Sith group to attack another is not clear at this point however experts on the Sith state this is not unusual and is known to happen from time to time.

KOJ of Yavin IV at the Second Life Science Fiction Convention

The GNW team caught up with Master Tanira of the Kalway Order of Jedi who briefly explained the purpose of the Science Fiction Convention and its larger cause:

“The Second Life Science Fiction Convention has two purposes, one is to promote the science fiction communities in SL and second is to benefit the Relay For Life Cancer charity in SL.

This is the second year we have participated and the idea is to let other sci fi fans know that Star Wars is alive and well in SL

Proceeds from payment of the larger display plots goes to not only the tier payment but for RFL, in fact this year all six sims are in conjunction with the ACS sim (American Cancer Society) and is across another bridge from here. Most display groups have a kiosk that people are encouraged to donate to.”

The in-world slurl to the convention is given below:
