"Resistance" Faction Declares War on Raiders
A group calling itself the "Alien Resistance Faction" has claimed responsibility for the string of protests and attacks on the Raider worlds over the past couple of weeks. Early yesterday, the group made a bigger entrance as it arrived in salvaged cruisers and began a blockade of Kashyyyk, claiming to "liberate" the world from Raider oppression. After an intense battle, the forces were scuttled as the Raider fleet arrived en masse. After the encounter, Lord Emperor Maldiv Rocik had this to say: "Finally, Galaxy, we can put a face on the terrorist organization that is responsible for inciting violence across the Galaxy these past few days. Alien Resistance Force, I advise you to de-arm, lay down your weapons, and evacuate to the far corners of the rim. You condemn yourself to certain failure, just like the Republic and the Jedi before you, but, if it's war you want...so be it. Prepare to meet your death."
Deregrassio Casino Firebombed!
After a string of chaotic protests that were ruthlessly put down by the Lord Emperor Maldiv Rocik's forces across three worlds, residents of Wroona were awakened late this evening to the sound of explosions as Deregrassio Casino was firebombed by yet another group of protesters. Luckily, the casino was mostly empty so there were no casaulties and very minor injuries. Following the firebombing, the protesters took to the streets of Wroona continuing their rioting and looting.
Era 2 Start Date
After some setbacks and delays, era 2 will be starting on August 26th give or take a few hours depending on availability. There will be a brief shutdown period starting in the evening of August 25th while we transition things over to the new era so that we can remove things/add things in. As for the story progression, 5 years will have passed since the Lorell Raiders defeated the Republic and established themselves as the sole governing faction. Sorry for the delays, hopefully era 2 brings some excitement back to the IC world.
Due to lack of staffing, the EoE for era 1 has been canceled for the time being. I have no idea when it will be rescheduled or if it will happen at all which unfortunately means the start of era 2 will be delayed until then. I apologize for any inconveniences this is going to cause you guys, but there is a lot of work to be done that I just cannot do myself for various reasons. All I can ask is that you remain patient and hold tight, I will keep working on what I can so that we can properly transition the era. Claudius
