Crime Lord Assassinated by Bounty Hunter
[* Medical Report *] As dozens of travellers attempt to aid the victims of the spice addiction epidemic, dealers continue to surface and find victims. It might continue forever, but rumors surround a lone bounty hunter who intends to put an end to the Carsa-B crisis altogether--sooner rather than later. Who and how is unclear. [* News Report *] An assassination has taken place on Nal Hutta today, as a lone bounty hunter killed a female Balosar after a brief chase. The woman was identified as one Ki'inev and was rumored to have many underworld connections, but a reputable attorney assured this reporter that all her debts and unfinished business deals will be settled appropriately.
Reports of Carsa-B Spice Psychosis and Overdose
[* Medical Report *] Dr. Najeemi in the emergency room at the Capital City Hospital on Lorrd is warning of a new drug that has patients arriving so agitated, violent, and psychotic that a small army of medical workers is needed to hold them down. They had taken a new hallucinogenic spice called Carsa-B and sometimes even large doses of sedatives failed to quiet them. "These people are arriving completely disconnected from reality and in a very bad place, we've had to expand the psych floors for admittance." Similar reports are emerging from hospitals around the galaxy, as doctors scramble to figure out the best treatment for people taking Carsa-B. [* Medical Report *] Poison control centers around the galaxy are reporting an increase in cases of Carsa-B overdose. At least three local governments have placed bans on the distribution of Carsa-B, which is believed to have originated from a laboratory on Nal Hutta. Jaaron Adasca, an Arkanian medical expert specialising in the treatment of patients suffering from the use of Carsa-B, warns that an incorrect synthesis of the spice leads to immediate overdose and, in many cases, death. "I have never seen a spice become so popular so quickly. We documented one case in particular where the patient could not cease lashing out in a violent manner. They were blasted with stun rays to no effect," the doctor explains, gesturing towards a medical chart without glancing at it himself. "The patient was a mere Jawa, but we required four security officers and two orderlies to hold it down for examination and sedation." [* Medical Report *] Amidst rumors of an outbreak of Carsa-B addiction on Nal Hutta being loosely linked with the Desilijic clan, Arkanian addiction specialist Jaaron Adasca spoke sternly to GNI reporters. "I hear of people simply killing addicts, which is unethical and inefficient. Surely we as the remaining bastions of sanity can do better." Shaking his head, the doctor returned to his research, refusing additional questions for the time being.

Arkanian Dragon Returns
Coming off of the Monster Hunt event, I've released the Arkanian Dragon into Syd and Vronk's collection. The mob is still extremely dangerous and is now located on the Petabys Station. After some discussion, well really a lot of whining and pestering, a new special type of durasteel can be obtained using the loot from the Dragon. For more information, head to Mandalore. Claudius
