[JUST IN: Republic Chancellor found dead] Chancellor Ysac Naros, the Mon
Calamari who had steered the Republic through a number of recent crisis, was
found dead near his office in the Republic citadel today. Anonymous officials
confirmed the news, but refused to speculate further. Stay tuned to GNI for
updates on this shocking twist.

A short time later, the Republic addressed the situation.

[Coruscant]: A tall, gangly Aqualish, weathered from age, scarred, and
generally hideous comes to a raised podium above the plaza on Coruscant, where
a sizable crowd has gathered. He wears humble homespun robes, and addresses the
crowd with a somber tone. “People of the Republic, and indeed the Galaxy, today
is a sad day. Ysac Naros, the Chancellor of the Republic, has taken his own
life, for reasons we cannot begin to fathom. He was a personal friend to me,
one who I walked side by side with on his path to election, and a good man. Let
us take a moment to remember him.” He lowers his head in a respectful moment of
silence, wind rippling through his white, wispy beard. After a time, he raises
his head and addresses the crowd once more. “As per the laws of the Republic,
the Vice Chancellor assumed the role of Interim Chancellor until such a time
where the Senate could assemble and elect a new Chancellor to a full term. A
session of Senate had been scheduled for today, and all members were present.
I, Gothrak Oodo, was the only candidate nominated, and was elected to the
position of Chancellor unanimously. I confirmed Senator Iroh of Lorrd as my
Vice Chancellor immediately.”

[Coruscant]: Chancellor Oodo grips the sides of the podium now, and straightens
his head out. “So I stand before you now to pledge my service, and dedicate my
life. I serve the people of the Republic. All of them. Not just the powerful,
the elite. But to the lowest of the low. Your disenfrancised of the galaxy,
your poor, your marginalized, your ostracized.” He raises a clawed, three
fingered hand to the sky. “I pledge to build a paradise, or die trying.” He
then turns that clawed hand out to the crowd gathered on the plaza, silently
scanning the crowd. “But I cannot do that without you, the people.” He clamps
his fist closed. “I cannot do it unless we come together, as one. So I ask you
to join me on this journey. Let us live lives worth living. Let us build the
galaxy we want to see. Together.” The Chancellor then breathes a heavy sigh,
raises a fist to the air for the crowd, and departs the podium. The people of
Coruscant watch their senator go, residents of the Underworld heavy in
attendance. They go berserk.

Help IMMChat is a rule, not a guideline or suggestion
HELP IMMCHAT. Read it. Learn it. Live it. As of today, those who do not abide by this rule will not be answered. Period. That means any immchats of 'Hey, anyone there?' or any other variation of that will be met with stark silence. And, using assistance after saying 'Hey, anyone there?' and not receiving an answer will lead you to a heap of trouble. Not trying to be rude, but with fewer of us around, I don't have time to a)Sort through the bull to find the issues and b)Read through 3 hours of assistance spam. Thanks in advance.

Tatooine Commission Finds Zero Impact
It has been over a decade since the destruction of the Baktoid Medical Center saw tonnes of toxic material spew forth into the Tatooine sky causing massive environmental harm to the Mos Eisley region. In the years that followed, a local commission was created to run a ten year long study on the long term effects of the exposure to the unknown chemicals that filled the skies that fateful day. Well, the study has been concluded and the results are now being made public by lead research Merest Zall. "Greetings everyone, after careful study and long term observation, we have been able to conclude that there has been no long lasting effects from the exposure and that Tatooine is well on it's way to a full recovery. We took samples of the flora and fauna native to the planet and ran numerous tests over the last ten years and found no significant deviations in their genetic structure pre-disaster and do not anticipate any further issues arising."

Ithor elects Oblatt Baal
On an assembly area, on the planet Ithor, the newly apponted Senator, a very strong, good looking reddish brown skinned Ithorian male timidly takes the podium. "My name is Oblatt Baal and I speak tonight for the dignity of all beings and the destiny of Ithor and of the Republic." His voice cracks slightly, and he seems slightly embarrassed, "I once was a Priest of the Mother Jungle, once destined to lead the Herd, yet my path has taken me in a different direction, further than I ever imagined. The future doesnt belong to the fainthearted: it belongs to the brave." He continues and his voice begins to grow in confidence, become more fervent, "This moment is so much bigger than me. This is for every nameless, faceless citizen of the Ithor, of any race and any color and I do solemnly swear to fight for and uphold the rights of all of my cherished people that now have an equal chance at betterment because they have been given, nay, they have chosen a voice in the Republic Union. Everything I value most in my life, you the people of Ithor, the people of the Republic, have given me." His voice seems to hum melodically as he comes to the close of his speech, "The Galaxy has been through much in recent times and those of us have felt the pangs of loss, of hurt and of destruction can rest easier. But, it is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought have thus far so nobly advanced. And stand together, in peace, for prosperity, for the betterment of future generations."
