Naval Debris to Hit Tatooine
"This is Cssentha Antra of the GNI," says a heavily accented voice, before beginning to speak in Cerean. A melodic voiceover translates, "After the destruction of so many cruisers in what is now being referred to as the Battle of Arkanis, an enormous amount of debris is in orbit over Tatooine. A new report from researchers at Greater Coruscant University suggests that this debris will begin to enter the planet's atmosphere on November 25th, in three primary waves, approximately 10am-12pm, 4-6pm, and 10pm-12am (all Eastport time)." "This is a wonderful opportunity for salvagers, or for starstruck lovers who'd like to watch the meteor shower of a lifetime." The elderly news anchor drones on about the difference between meteors, meteoroids, and meteorites for a good ten minutes before the broadcast finally ends.
Coruscanti Senatorial Special Elections in Wake of Senate Authorizing Slip Morrivar's Execution
With the stripping of Slip Morrivar's senatorial position and his subsequent schedule for execution, officials on Coruscant have announced a special election for a replacement Senator to represent Coruscant. The populace of Coruscant has met this announcement with mixed results. Slip Morrivar's most die-hard supporters have begun protesting his treatment, clinging to his charismatic leadership and promises. Other groups seem not terribly surprised that a man who holds strong ties with the Utmian Syndicate, long suspected for its shady dealings, would be charged and found guilty of treason for shady dealings. Only time will tell how the citizens of coruscant as a whole will react to these turn of events.

RPC Substitution - Welcome Odari to the RPC
Due to personal reasons, Shraik has told us that he will be unable to finish serving out the rest of the term. As there are still approximately two months left, we have substituted in Odari, who was the next runner up.
Note: We just updated the goal for 2018 - it is currently about $950 per year to run LotJ plus the deficit we carried over from the past few years.
