Alderaanian Royal Family Celebrates Prince's Birthday
The Alderaanian Royal family is celebrating the sixteenth birthday of Prince Alrish today. As the oldest and only surviving child of King Richart Venst, Prince Alrish is next in line to become the King of Alderaan. In a rare public appearance, King Richart gave a small speech praising his only child's growth and development while also praising the continued independence of the Alderaan. "People of Alderaan, as you know a great tragedy struck my family nearly two decades ago when my children and first wife were killed in a senseless act of terrorism...but here we are, once again open to the galaxy at large, flourishing and prospering. Today is my son's sixteenth birthday and I want to wish him well, for one day, it will be he who stands here speaking to you. It is my family's promise and duty, to ensure the continued independence of Alderaan amidst these new times within the galaxy! As long as the bloodline of the Venst's continues, Alderaan shall forever be sovereign and independent!" Prince Alrish made a brief appearance to greet the royal houses and the crowd that gathered to celebrate his birthday. Currently, Prince Alrish is under tutelage by noted professor Carst Glein who has been a tutor to the royal family for nearly fifty years.

The Inquisition
A symphony of horns swell into a conservative-yet-catchy tune as an announcer begins a voice-over, "And now..your GNI Nightly News with Sebastian NewFall!" The camera dips down from high above and begins to focus in on a news desk. The lights come up, revealing a tan human with impeccable features. He beams a bright, pearly smile as the music concludes in a flourish. "Good evening! Our top story tonight:" The camera flicks to a birds-eye view of houses in Menari Heights. Various troopers in white-paneled uniforms storm into buildings, dragging occupants kicking and screaming out of their homes. "Officials with the Galactic Empire confirm to us tonight of an edict from the Lord Emperor to begin an Inquisition into the disappearance of the Jedi Order immediately following the fall of the Galactic Republic over 5 years ago. Citizens should be advised that all those that aid and abet the Jedi, old or new, in any way, shape, or form will be met with the harshest.." As one of the field interviews becomes more heated, a figure in black robes seemingly appears out of the night, raising a light sword high above his head and beginning to arc it down towards a family of four. The view quickly cuts back to the newsman, his face slack-jawed as he looks off-camera. He suddenly snaps out of it, shuffling some papers absent-mindedly and saying, sheepishly, "W...We'll be right back..."

Recent Changes

Restring and Crafted Item Tweaks
* Added a success line to when you use restring to change the name of an item. * Clarified error messages to players to explain why they can't restring a piece of armor/container. * FOr WORN_ABOUT armor, examine now shows what the armor will change your appearance to. * For other armor/containers that have been restrung, examine will show what the item's original appearance was. * Refactored some things under the hood for restring. This does mean everyone can re-restring their items if they so choose. Go ahead if you want. * Added RESTRUNG and NORESTRING flags. I previously went about this in a dumb way. * Makecontainer and Makespice now correctly apply the CRAFTED flag to the item made using these two skills. * Shops will now display Restrung: before the name of an item if the item has been restrung to prevent scamming.
