Another year has passed...a most dramatic one, to be honest. We are not only wishing you a happy new year, but also bringing the most important events that occurred recently.
One would be the raised number of the bandits, thugs, mercenaries and also pirates throughout the galaxy. They do not seem to bring much trouble though...other than dealing several weapon caches, drugs and such. The Galactic authorities don't seem to find any useful info about them either.
On the other hand, a ''former secret'' team of scientists sent by the Galactic Senate itself has established a researching base in the deep forests of Kashyyyk. Of course, they are called ''former secret'' because a tragic catastrophe happened out there, which was of course noticed by many of the planet's inhabitants and news spread quick. That facility the scientists have built should've taken a lot of time to be accomplished...and so we figure out that they were there for a few years or so. Anyway, along with that, a nuclear reactor has been forged as well...the reasons still being unknown to us. The reactor had a sudden power output surge, which led to series of explosions. These events exposed the graphite moderator of the reactor to air, causing it to ignite. The resulting fire sent a plume of highly radioactive smoke fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area. At this moment, the center of the planet is severely contaminated, this probably spreading throughout huge areas of the forest. Also, this disaster is said to occur on other planets as well, since it is believed these reactors have been built on several parts of the galaxy...but it's still a rumor. Right now, strategic plans are discussed in order to either evacuate the people of Kashyyyk or to attempt isolating the contaminated areas.
And the last but not the least breaking news is the secure of Tatooine. After one year of unstoppable battles between this important task's owner and the Sand People - the largest threat ever existing on this planet...the planet has been at last freed. On the planet's surface..with the help of one of the oldest assassination type of droid - the HK Units. It seems that Master Ror'jhan has found a way to upgrade their memory core..as well as other processors and so, he enabled the full capacity of these ''killing machines''. Most of the towns were freed, and the desert has been mostly secured. As for the last threat...the Star Destroyer on the planet's orbit...it disappeared just when it was on the brink of being assaulted. Though before departing, it fired few main turrets at the planet, ravaging few areas of the landscape. Although suffering many losses, Tatooine will be restored in time, thanks to the newest hero of the current time. As soon as the task has been accomplished, he has just vanished. Either way, the Senate hasn't forgot about the promised reward. It is said that someone will be sent at the Galactic Federation's Temple with it.
Tatooine will have a long way from recovering completely...but it will survive...this disaster empowering it's inhabitants in a way...giving them faith.
Happy New Year....335!
