Hallo my lektastic Qel-Dromites!
Thank you all for your contributions to our Wiki-comps, the prisons of Tenixir and getting second place against our esteemed rivals at Galeres in our little training combat RP! As we shift our attention from the pre-war to the actual War that continues to loom in the nebulous horizon, I would like to take this moment to remind you that what is coming will require all hands on deck. As such, now is a good time to give yourself a breather and as much slack as you want.
The world may have conspired to seal us within four walls and staring at computer screens even more so than usual, but do remember to take care of yourselves. I for one have taken up some light gardening on an allotment and do semi-regular walks around the nearby woods to get a little breather. I highly encourage you all to take these coming weeks to recharge, refresh, and work on other things, because come War-time, I want you all beside me to defend our title of First Clan.
Also, May the 4th be with you!
Signed, Your Lekhead
Welcome to another monthly report from our fantastic House!
How have you been this past month? I would say busy, in a very proud way.
I want to thank you all for participating on the Reconstruction comp part II. All your entries will give us more details, locations and people to populate our ever lively port which is exactly what we love! If you haven’t already, be sure to check the new and updated Port Ol’Val page! Some of your entries have already been added there!
Also, May the 4th is coming! Our very special holiday! So here’s an Uncle Aru joke for you: Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi walk into a Chinese restaurant. Ten minutes into the meal, Luke still can’t figure out the chopsticks, dropping food everywhere. Obi-Wan finally snaps: “Use the forks, Luke.”
War is coming and we need to prepare. By prepare I mean rest so that we are 100% when it hits us. So, go to sleep! Dream of Princess A-Aru the yoyo.
Signed, The Local Gambler.
It did not look good. No matter how grainy and distorted the holopics from the Selenian repair yards were, they could not obfuscate the fact that the Voidbreaker had been shot up something fierce. How it had managed to survive a catastrophic re-entry after being ambushed by a Dawn Conclave warship was beyond her, though there was something endearing about the way the old warhorse had refused to yield even when mortally wounded. With a phantom sting in her belly, Tali Sroka could certainly respect that quality.
The door opened with a hiss of pneumatics. She hadn’t left it unlocked. That could only mean one thing…
“Hello, darling,” Lucine Vasano greeted her, a slight smile on her red lips. The Consul was wearing a tastefully cut emerald-black dress that shifted in color with every motion she made. Dressed down, as she would have put it.
“Vhat can I do for you, Lucine?” Tali inquired, making no motion to rise up from her seat behind the work desk, her golden eyes nailed to the emerald greens of the red-haired Human.
“Oh please,” Lucine sighed dismissively, “Can I not drop by unannounced just once without you immediately thinking I want something from you?”
The Twi’lek did not deign the question worthy a response.
“I heard you have recently suffered some casualties,” Lucine continued anew as she paced over to the cluster of couches and sat down on the supple leather. She leaned back with a muted murmur of approval, draping her alabaster arms over the dark brown backrest and looking over to the Quaestor who remained behind her small fort of admin.
Tali’s lips pressed into a line. “Ve vere ambushedt. The Dawn Conclave—”
“—Have been eliminated and driven out of Ol’val, last I heard,” Lucine interrupted, searching with her gaze for the obligatory drinks cabinet that surely was part of any Arconan official’s quarters.
“Ve thought so too, but—”
“There is always a but, isn’t there?”

We wish to thank you all for your efforts and continued contributions to our shared little slice of fantasy. It has been a great joy to read all your submissions for our various development comps and to be surprised and amazed by the creativity on display!
We try to do our best to balance the competition loading, but sometimes we may get it wrong. In such cases, voicing your feelings is never wrong, and we would not want for any of you to consider these activities a demand on your time. We do encourage you to ‘do all the things’, but these are all still fun and games, so let us keep that in mind even in the coming War.
As always, if you have concerns, ideas, recommendations or a general need to chat, we are always here for you. Whether on TG (@tali_sroka, @AruLaw) and or email.
