Information

Hello there, it's a new month, so now we get a new newsletter! So here we are, the June 1st newsletter!

The Return of Boli

We are pleased to announce that Boli, aka @Green Ranger, has returned to the staff team! Boli’s primary role right now will be working on site design. He’s always been a major part of the look and feel of SWRP, and we’re excited to formalize that once again with his return to the staff.

With that being said, you may or may not have noticed that the main skin has been changed to further freshen up the look of the site. Take a look if you haven't already.

Feel free to welcome him back here!

Events
  • Escape from Mataou Event!
    • Broken Steel has ended! The Hutt's agent IG-0R was downed before it can enact its plan. But that's not all, an evil dataplague threatens to take over the whole armory! The armory intelligence Z1MM clones it's personality into datacards that are arranged into a deck. X3R, an agent of ZIMM, gave the deck to @Newton Arden although @Allegra was able to make off with a piece of the deck, creating in essence an incomplete puzzle for both.
Z1MM seals the factory to do battle with the dataplague, while the 'Chosen' and X3R make their escapes off this world.​
  • Hutt Ball event has concluded! The Blue Team wins (Mr. Macho) @Poffo Sauvage (Death) @Neffy Whilstradt, and Krazy Kel (@Bir Vuul) ! Congratulations!

Invasion of Taris

"Make your choice."

The offer was cast, the line in the sand was drawn. But the defenders stubbornly refused, so @Darth Stolas launched his invasion, Sith vessels landing as the battle rages around them. Joining the Sith Councilor are @Vizim, @Bir Vuul, @Raksis, @Xeno Brogroo. The Taris Security Force won't go quietly, and adding to the Sith's troubles the Jedi shown up to intervene lead by Jedi Master @Alexandria Voran. She is joined by knights @Soren Rel, @Yvain, and @Vahn Berand and independent Mandalorian @Vraes Trenessar.

It's a hard fought battle for sure. During the course of it so far Rakis has been sliced in half. Xeno and Yvain have knocked themselves out at the same time with mutually connecting lightsaber strikes. Stolas has been showing off his prowess against Soren and Vahn, fighting them both at the same time. Meanwhile Master Voran and the assassin Vizim are engaging in a gritty duel that even went down them using their fists.

Neither side is giving an inch, and it's only a matter of time until the victor of this battle is decided.

State of the Galaxy

The AMS Outbreak

Nal Hutta: 44% infected
Rorak 4: 78% infected
Nar Shaddaa: 68% infected
Toydaria: 59% infected
Tol Amn: 98% infected
Keldooine: 90% infected
Kwenn: 25% infected
Irith: 75% infected
Nixor: 97% infected
Randon: 70% infected
Ruusan: 41% infected
Ubrikkia: 94% infected
New Apsolon: 89% infected
Deysum III: 97% infected
Coachelle Prime: 51% infected
Utapau: 99% Infected
Bothawui: 19% Infected
Kashyyyk: 29% infected
Boz Pity: 10% infected
Lannik: 11%
Gamorr: 10%


The AMS pandemic is now slowing and there is still hope for a vaccine that's being worked on, but in the mean time the virus doesn't intend on letting up. Even though restrictions have been applied evacuation orders given, there are still people spreading the infection. It's clear that even when the vaccine does come out existing hotspot percentages will keep rising due to the uninfected people leaving and more people getting infected both. New hotspots are being formed, and new ones may still emerge.

The Jedi

While they are doing battle with the Sith at Taris, they have been focused on the usual, building themselves up, protecting and saving others, and holding barbeques. The venerable Jedi Knight @Yvain is leading an effort to build up the Jedi's military capacity, so that they would decrease the gap between theirs and the might of the Sith war machine. Here, they would attempt to meet with executives from Incom-FreiTek, the company behind the X-wing famous for destroying the first Death Star. They also attempt to take a Mon Calamari capital ship before pirates get to it and negotiate with the Wookiee elders on Kashyyyk.

Also, @Zathria is leading the effort to raise credits for a 'Mercy ship', a medical vessel that would travel across the galaxy with the intent of helping people that need it whether from war, sickness, etc. With this initiative, both Jedi and many other independent parties are helping to raise funds for this venture and if all goes well, they will have a decent-sized and very capable ship to use.

In other news, Master @Alexandria Voran and Knight @Vahn Berand are right now attempting to purify the old Grandmaster @Oota Boan's lightsaber, that was previously bled red and black by @Darth Asminys after the Sith defeated him. An important and symbolic victory for the Jedi if the purification is completed.

The Sith

The Sith have not laid idle even aside their invasion of Taris. @Darth Andruil and @Charlotte LeAnna have made plans for the latter to succeed her family in the Hapes Cluster. @Artorigas Wessex, with help from @Bir Vuul and @Kayden Skyler acquired a collection of droids. He used them to good effect to both fight off @Drow Venn and then, with the assistance of @Shane Covax, to ascend to the head of his noble family on Serenno.

Using his new holdings he's opened up a celebration of his promotion from Acolyte to Marauder for Sith and their agents to attend. Drinking, dancing, tasteful music, and general mingling abound in the snow-capped halls of Castle Wessex. Even the more powerful members of the Sith Eternal are rumoured to plan appearances.

Five Syndicates

The Five Syndicates have been doing some expansion work on their own. Autocrator @Hypaxian intends on making deals on the planet Corvus and is dealing with marauders who are foolish enough to steal from them, taking whatever loot they might have. Such a move would bring profits to the Five Syndicates.

Another effort lead by @Kax Khan involves going to the heavily infested world Ubrikka and laying claim to its shipyards and stealing anything of value from Ubrikkan Industries' HQ. If it pans out, it will be a means of production and would expand Five Syndicates' arsenal of vehicles. It does have a lot of risk in the form of many many zombies, but it could be worth it and brave combatants are willing to undertake the task.

There are complications however. First, a few people disguised as Sith have attacked Five Syndicates activities of interest in order to instill distrust between the two groups. How this will affect things going forward remains to be seen. Also @Preef Callo hasn't been seen in a while, and it looks like Five Syndicates are stagnating. Who will be the ones to step up and keep the crime business going good?

Independent Systems Consortium

The ISC has been busy with their newest agenda, the formation of a proper military. ISC President @Emryc Thorne brought up the topic, trying to get the Consortium in tip-top shape for defense. Although there was some banter and snide remarks made towards one another, notably the @Queen Parnelli of Naboo with @Tyris Thanewulf, and also @Julia Hipori with @Lucas Rinn.

The discussions were ultimately productive however as a taxing plan was agreed to: With planets being put in tax brackets based on their wealth, or their land being used in lieu of that for the ISC government to use. Not to mention, the ISC has agreed to make their own military force with Lucas Rinn being named Secretary of Defense. Govenor Hipori was named Secretary of Intergalactic Affairs and @Soygun York was named Secretary of Treasury. A hard day's work for them all.

In Other News

A band of Mandalorians with the Iron Skin Resistance are attempting to remove the pretender Manda'lor Malinkar from out of power from Concord Dawn and liberate what he had under his heel. At the moment, they are attacking the main gates and another in the shipyards and docks.
