A Message from the Quaestor

Hallo, my lektastic Qel-Dromans!

These dark times really fly by! Last few weeks at work have been one dive in on Monday and breaking water on Friday. Hope you’re all staying safe and sane as we angle towards end-of-year holidays and whatnot!

Ol’Val has luckily been pacified from outside threats, but this leaves us with a conundrum. In the past, there existed a certain ‘balance of terror’ between the various cartels and Qel-Droma’s interests. However, in the wake of the Dawn Conclave’s failed coup, the Blind Man (Qel-Droma’s front) finds itself in control of a majority of the station.

Although this seems to be excellent news, there come certain downsides too. When you are the ruling party, you are expected to rule. How will Qel-Droma pivot itself from a mere player among Ol’Val’s cartels into the ruler and operator of the Shadowport, and what changes will that entail to the lives of all those who call it home? Join us, and help write the next chapter of our journey...

Signed, Your Lekhead

A Message from the Aedile

Hello fellow Qel-Dromans!

How are you all across the globe? I hope you had a fun Halloween night in case you celebrate it. If you don’t, I hope you had a good night anyways.

I wish in advance a happy thanksgiving to the Americans as well.

Have you seen the Christmas lights already? Cause I have… What shall we do for Ol’Val’s Sithmas Day this year?

Now that we’ve settled a bit better in our new Social Home (Discord) and the dust is settling, I hope to spend another great month among you all.

As always, stay safe and awesome!

Signed, The Local Gambler

House Fiction Update

The Pride of Corellia
Port Ol’val
39 ABY

“Get back here! Hey!” Duletto Catanis shouted, the Lasat angrily waving his fist out of his V-35 Courier at the fleeing would-be customer.

“Thanks for the ride, sleemo!” the scarpering Human spat over his shoulder, leaping over a shuffling GNK-droid and disappearing down an alley far too narrow for the speeder to follow.

The veteran driver of Hot n’Ready Rides spat out a string of curses before leaning back against the worn headrest and sighing. Things like this were far too common, and normally he might have been able to survive a few dodgy ‘customers’ like this, but with the credits going into the stabilizer repair and the port engine already acting up, it wasn’t looking good.

Of course he’d known Ol’val was a place of dodgy business dealings, but it seemed to have become even worse of late. Sure, there wasn’t open war in the streets and most of the fires had gone out, but it was becoming intolerable to live within the asteroid station. Something would have to change, or he’d not be the only one to leave for good.

In the streets outside his cockpit, a traveler dressed in a long brown trench coat raised a finger to her ear, eyes trailing after the fleeing crook. Dull grey plastoid armor flashed under her coat as the sleeve pulled back from the motion.

“He’s coming down the alley. Human, male, mid-twenties, black hair, one-seventy-ish tall. Can’t miss ‘im with that garish jumpsuit.”

There was a buzz of acknowledgement from the other end of the comms and the traveler’s thin lips spread into a wry smile.

In Closing…

This will be the first steps of the next chapter of our story! Expect more chances to get into the nitty gritty of Ol’val’s streets and pick sides between the status quo of the cartels and the uppity Paladins who seek to bring the New Republic’s justice even to the darkest corners of the Outer Rim.

Of course, that does kind of put them on a collission course with anyone who thinks Shadow Ports should remain beyond the reach of law...
