To: The Sith Lords/Masters From: Lava First and foremost, this is an apology for my actions and verbage used on our ▇▇▇▇▇▇ mission on Rishi. ▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇ I was there to represent the CommonWealth and should not have fed into things that were said. I disrespected those that perhaps shouldn't have been disrespected instead of keeping focus on the mission at hand. Please do not take my actions as something to be held against the CommonWealth. They have tried to train me, and my inability to absorb their training should not be held against them. I hope you have the same reasoning of understanding in regards to this. Lastly, due to my actions, I feel my representation of the CommonWealth is wrong. I have left the order as punishment. ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ so that I will never impede on any such treaties or alliances between the CommonWealth and/or the Sith. Or even worse, create any possible future problems. ▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ So, my apologies in regards to MY actions and words. ▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇ This is Lava, forever signing off. -- Akaa Cross was finally releived to be coming home to his clan, after months and months of tracking one sith lord and two darths. rhade the systems commonwealth emperor, had requested bounties on each of them. The reason bounties where placed on them was because they had crimes against the system commonwealth, and attempts against Rhade's life and dethroning the systems commonwealth emperor. They needed to be brought in. As Akaa landed in the new SCW compound, it was nice to see how far the rebuilding of the commonwealths base was coming along. Akaa made his way inside to find emperor rhade, it didnt take long to locate his old friend. Akaa threw two small vials of ash to rhade, along with two floating carbonated bodies that slowly glided to rhade. "The sith lord is on ice along with one of his darths, unfortunately the other darth and her apprentice elected to come to you in a jar." Rhade raised his eyebrows in a disbelieving manner but sighed and smiled lightly. " very well, good job akaa I appreciate you taking them down as quickly as you did, turn in your fobs and make sure you get your payments." Rhade said in a upbeat tone Akaa nodded to rhade and as akaa turned to leave rhade said one last thing " Akaa, Welcome home". Not that rhade or anyone else could see but under akaas helmet the mandalorian smiled *it was good to be back* akaa thought to himself. -- As Akaa looked at the bounty puck as he saw the hologram akaa smirked, but under his helmet no one could see the excitement in his eyes. rhade looked up with a raised eye brow "akaa if you could bring him in al-" rhade started but the Mandalorian was already shaking his head. " it's a sith, he will be coming in cold" Akaa said in a low metallic tone. it wasnt long before akaa was on his way to Onderon. this would be the 8th sith, akaa brought in this month all of them cold. but as Akaa put in the coordinates he thought about why. the Sith where becoming more and more bolder he had a bad feeling that someone was about to make a move, the treaty between the commonwealth and the imperials was fragile on a good day but now. It wouldn't belong until an all out war between all factions, not just the republic and the imperial empire but soon the common wealth. -- Valla as a member of the dark council landed on Darth Vulkans ship. He walked over to the Empire's Communications network and started to speak to the whole galaxy. "I am Darth Maestys to long have we stood idly by while our traditions are smashed to pieces while we stand by with no true leader but no longer. This is a coming age a new age where sith can rise again the jedi are weak they are dying it's time to return fire today is the day. I rise I have defeated Darth Vulkan in fair combat he kneels before me and proclaimed me the new dark lord. I hereby say that's not enough I say I want more we need more I say we don't need a dark lord we need an Emporer. I am that Emporer so this is a message to the galaxy I will not stand by while the jedi ruin our traditions our bloodlines the war against the jedi is on and we will win for my new Empire For our new Empire is IMMORTAL. Valla screams on the top of his lungs in fair with his last word he was hell bent on letting everyone know that he was in charge and was hell bent on destroying the jedi. His message was heard loud and clear he soon knew the war would continue but for how long only time will tell will his actions bring him victory or only suffering. He goes to Vulkan throne and sits on Which has Officially begun his reign. -- Akaa raises his eye brow and rolls his eyes, " knew something like this was coming." Akaa said to gal vera. Gal had intercepted the holotransmision as she hunted a sith In imperial space. She nodded in agreement with Akaa's statement. " when will the republic and commonwealth realize that there is no treaty or allaince that they will ever honor. In that regard they are about as wonderful as those worms the hutts." Akaa spat Gal nodded again she knew akaa's hate for the sith. " they never learn do they " akaa said as he walked by and stared at darth nox light saber crystal hanging on his belt. " darth nox also claimed to be immortal, and all the darths before him. And each time they became ash under our feet." Gal smiled and nodded a sign of respect to akaa The mandalorian clan leader was tired of these games the sith would play first being a allies then turning on the commonwealth, again and again the sith did this. Akaa had enough he went to his inter comm and spoke to all of the mandalorians not only to his clan but those willing to listen. " I speak not as a clan leader but as a mandalorian, to many times the sith have threaten the galaxy, have underestimated those around them. The claim these empty threats as victory, they have no regard for honor nor. Or what war really is, they taint this galaxy with their cowardly stench. They see themselves as gods only to be false idols under our boots." Akaa's voice began to turn metallic as his rage could be heard in his voice " this sith lord is no different, he claims immortality yet sits on a throne of deceit. We mandalorians do not live by words of the tounge but by our actions. Those that have the ability to take action have the responsibility to take action, so I call to you mandalorians, this sith wants war, he tryed to declare war on jedi..." akaa shook his head as he spoke " but it's not the jedi they should fear, they are not the hunters of the galaxy. WE ARE, you expected to fight the jedi, but your about to face a much more deadly predator. We are war incarnate. You want war darth maestys, we'll give you that, when your choking on your own blood and have the taste of mandalorian iron in your mouth, then will also give you death. You wanted war and that's what we will give you. We will show you how immortal you really are. This is a call to all mandalorians, the sith seek war, I SAY WE ANSWER IT." Akaa voice went silent, the comms where quite at first but then, as if a hurricane of roar came through a chant that all mandalorians chanted hundreds of thousands answered the call. The Sith wanted war they would get it, but not by just the jedi. The mandalorians now would answer the call for war and this time, there is no where for the sith to hide, no place where they will not be hunted down. This time The sith would regret taunting the dogs of war. -- The Galactic Holonet turns on and before you is an image of The CommonWealth's Emperor, Gaheris Rhade: "People of the CommonWealth, I come to you today to speak of the impending conflict with The Empire. As you may already know, the treaty between us has been broken by an act of war from The Empire. We are no strangers to adversity in our mission to unite the galaxy. We have been betrayed before and emerged stronger than ever! I don’t need lengthy, long winded speeches to rally you, my people. We stand for a cause that speaks for itself; justice, morality, and balance in the galaxy and nothing will stop our righteous mission. We carry with us not only the hope of generations and generations to come, but we carry with us the power of what is right and good! That is why today, I would like to offer sanctuary and mercy to any peoples of the Empire seeking refuge. This act mirrors the mercy I showed your leader when I defeated him single-handedly. He fought dishonorably, teaming up against me with one of his minions still, I was the victor. So shall I, no, we be. Come the end of this conflict when the smoke clears, there will be one side left standing. The CommonWealth!" -- Jedi master Noorha was in her office when her door opened suddenly and closed. She thought nothing of it at first and then, suddenly, in the corner of the room a mysterious man with a spectral form appeared. He dawned a jedi's robe and his image flickered and disappeared as she turned around. Then the man appeared behind her and touched her shoulder, prompting she turned around. It was none other than Jano Tarkis. She was surprised to see him seeing that they thought he was dead. He told her he did not have much time since he could not control this form while unconscious. He quickly told her that he is running out of time that he is trapped in the Crystal on illum. He is being crushed by all the power being absorbed into the Crystal and that soon he would die. He begged Noorha to save him and then he suddenly vanished after losing control of his spectral form. After he went to the rest of the commonwealth jedi master's and told them of his situation. He even paid a final visit to Emperor Rhade himself. Now he waits in the Crystal on illum unconscious and clinging to life but Time is running out. -- Mysterious Figure Provokes War With the C.W’s Force Sensitive Population and He’s Winning. By Zelanda If you are Force Sensitive - lock your doors. Riots are spreading across CommonWealth space. Droids have gone haywire, targeting only Force Sensitives regardless of age and the people are not happy. Senator Ryux tries desperately to find diplomatic solutions working alongside the CommonWealth Jedi to find the meaning of this betrayal. Civilian datapads are being hacked and are taking the droid's side, to end the “oppression” caused by Force Sensitives. Anonymous sources claim abuse of power and an infringement of privacy. “Haven’t we all thought at one point that chaos always follows the spooks… Or anyone that can use the Force for that matter?” A bystander commented earlier today. “Can’t they read your mind? That’s not fair to anyone!” Another fearful civilian chimed in. The anonymous messages that widespread across the galaxy though civilian datapads were a series of documents of certain coverups with the associated names of multiple Jedi Masters. It was accompanied alongside a persuasive video showing a masked man. Still that begs the question of “Aren’t they people too?” The CommonWealth’s people are presented with a moral choice. Senator Ryux spoke this afternoon in response to the people's concerns, riots and unnecessary crime. “What is happening here will throw our society into chaos. This is not the way to make change. We must stand together and find a more peaceful way to bring about the change you all desire.” It was not long until the crowd turned on him and forced the Senator to flee because of his discovered Force Sensitive son. Rumors of a Militaristic Curfew circle through the talk of the Senate. “People are not listening to reason, something must be done to establish control” Senator Api stated during his conference with the Jedi. The Emperor himself attended the conference and spoke to the people in an attempt to ease their concerns.” The article had a video link of a recording of a hologram of Emperor Rhade. My fellow CommonWealth citizens. I know this is an uncertain time for all of you, I assure you - we are all in a bit of a disarray from this attack on our people. Nay! On all of us. At this time we are unsure of where the attack has come from but, as you have put your trust in me before I ask that you do so once again. I promise you, the people, we will find the truth and bring it to light not just for the CommonWealth but for all affected people across the Universe. " Rhade extends his hand "In Rhade we trust!” Who knows what the near future will bring, stay tuned for the latest updates regarding this dire time.
‘TRANSMISSION SECURED: This is Crime Boss Raldani Kaluma. As I’m sure many of you have noticed, I’ve been away on a mission for quite a while now and have been out of contact while I’ve been away. I’ve been on Rishi securing a new base of operations for us. Jobs will still be coming through the Blaster’s Bastion and the Stormdragon family, to avoid arousing any suspicion and to keep unwanted guests out of our new base. As I stated before, the new base will be on Rishi, thanks to an old friend of mine. Thanks to her cooperation, the Ivory Company, a band of pirates, will be joining our ranks. In light of this new change, I have also been working on a new way to spread our reach further across the galaxy. To do this, we’re dividing the Underworld into two divisions. The Ruffnecks and the Commonwealth Intelligence Agency, otherwise known as the CIA, which we will be partnered with the Commonwealth for. The Ruffnecks will be more combat-oriented while the CIA will, of course, be intel and stealth-oriented. In addition to this, I’ve heard some troubling things recently, as I’m sure many of us have. It would appear that some individuals have forgotten to fear not only the Commonwealth, but the Underworld as well, and have decided to try and eliminate Force Sensitives from the galaxy via droids. I have called the Commonwealth my allies, and by attacking my allies, these droid’s programmers have attacked me. Bring me these droids for research, bring me any information you may have on the droids and their maker, and you will be paid. Better yet, bring my enemy’s bodies to me and I will make sure that you have more credits than you could ever know what to do with. I want not only their droids. I want their *lives*. Let’s set fire to these bastards. The galaxy *will* know our name! For the Underworld! TRANSMISSION ENDED' -- the comms opens abruptly in imperial and commonwealth space, “To long have you imperials run around as if this is your hunting ground, as if you are the hunters of the galaxy. The Sith act as if they are all but invincible, yet in the first day of clan Gra Tua’s return two imperials where captured, and another wounded enough to scurry back to its hiding hole like a rat. To long have you thought your self’s as predators, but you are prey. The true predators are back. This is a message to the Sith, there is no where in this galaxy you can run, no where you can hide that we will not find you. You will receive no mercy, no quarter. We will end you there will be no religion you can hide behind; we will break you down to the smallest atom to where there is nothing left, there won’t be enough for even your masters to become ghosts. While you lick your wounds heed this warning, any imperials caught in commonwealth space will be hunted down ended.” In the background you can hear many Mandalorian cheer and discharge their weapons. “you are the prey it must be a strange feeling running, but I would get use to it, for a rat does threaten a wolf, the hunt is on, and we will feast. I have seen your destruction across the galaxy, but you do not fight warriors you attack citizens, non- military targets and slaughter them. You murder them as they do not fight. You call your self’s predators or hunters, your nothing more then scavengers, and the true dogs of war are here, and we are hungry.” The comms abruptly ends and goes silent -- Darth Chadwick, the Emperor's advisor, met with Darth Maestys immediately after he was attacked by the Mandalorian clan leader Akaa. After he saw the large broadcast he was worried- the future did not bode well. They were not ready to face a threat as large as the Mandalorians and the Systems CommonWealth's full force combined. The Empire was just getting back onto their feet. They needed allies - and more powerful warriors. The two Sith only saw one viable option for survival. A private message was delivered to all known Sith, hidden from the citizens of the Empire. “I am sure you have all heard the daunting news. Fear not - we will survive as we always have. Your Emperor orders you all to scatter. From this point on the Sith will act as individuals. The strongest will survive and when we are ready we will rise again and crush the CommonWealth and Mandalorian scum that threaten to take our freedom away. Every Sith is to find - and train an Apprentice. Stay vigilant and cautious - we will not be defeated.” The short message was highly encrypted. Now, he would need to prepare the Empire’s citizen’s for what was to come. Darth Chadwick - masked appeared before a live broadcast to all citizens of the Empire. “Citizens of the Empire. We have been greatly wronged. Our freedom is threatened and we must stand and act. Our Emperor has fallen by the hands of the treacherous Systems CommonWealth, when he attempted to defend Dromuund Kaas from a ruthless massacre. Do not let their lies of Peace and Justice wrongly influence you. They will take away everything that you hold dear, as we have witnessed. He sacrificed himself for your safety and now I, his second, ask you all to stand and help us fight against those who wish to destroy everything great that we have built together - and what we stand for. We will not fall. Darth Chadwick ignited his lightsaber and lifted it to the blackened sky. Long live the Empire!” The truth was that he himself had caused the ruthless assault to pin blame on the CommonWealth, to inspire Emperor’s Maestys’ people through fear and rage. The Emperor was alive and well, in hiding. The CommonWealth may not call his bluff but it was enough to call the Empires people to arms. They would make things just a little bit more difficult for Emperor Rhade and his private council of warriors while the Sith strengthened themselves. He was not proud of running - but survival was priority. He would find a way to kill them all. -- The Galactic Holonet buzzes with static for a short moment as a holographic version of Emperor Rhade appears on everyone's holoscreens and holocommunicators. Rhade's left hand raises up and clenches his fist as he proudly addresses his people and the Galactic Core: "My people, sons and daughters of the Commonwealth; For many years The Empire have made attempts at our livelihood; oppressed us and *attempted* to conquer us at every turn. I asked you for time and you granted me that time. You; the the strength in my arm, the holders of my dreams, this much I vow. We will crush the armies of our enemies by seizing the weapons they seek to turn against us and thus the history of these days will be written in their blood. If there are those who would deny us peace and refuse us our rightful place in the universe, then we will unleash such a terrible vengeance that generations yet unborn will cry out in anguish. We are fighting for our very existence. We come from an empire rich in culture with acceptance being a driving tenet of our identities. Our forefathers embarked on the greatest exodus in our history; an exodus for freedom! The Commonwealth became that freedom! We have experienced hardship, but in the time you have given me, I rebuilt our empire! I rebuilt our strength! AND I REBUILT OUR PRIDE! On this day we stand united once more. On this day those driven to divide us will hear our voice! On this day we act as one! And we will be ignored NO MORE! We shall smite the invaders and never again will we bow before them! Never again endure their oppression and never again will we tolerate or endure tyranny! Defenders of the Commonwealth, I call on you! NOW IS OUR TIME!!!!!" ~The holocom then cuts out~
