The Chandrilan election was in full swing, even as Pots (for his hospital bed) and Bev, from her elaborate campaign headquarters monitored the incoming results with their teams.

As the numbers came in, it was clear that a close race was being fought. In the last 15 minutes, the final district that had not yet reported ins results went for Pots. Devastated, Bev walked out of her campaign's war room onto a terrace out of the back. Master Goldar had come by earlier that day to announce that he would be the official Election Observer for the Republic, and Bev was briefly considering demanding a recount.

Suddenly, she had the distinct sense that she was not alone. She turned to her left, and there, dressed in black was a figure wearing a Kryat dragon mask. With a harsh, electronic sound, a red blade extended from the handle of his lightsaber, and Bev screamed in terror.

Malefice leaped at her, gouging her side with the point of his blade, sending Bev sprawling to the floor. Acting quickly, Bev, grabbed a fistful of dirt, and threw it into the Sith Lord's face. It bought her a moment, but in her wounded condition, she was not able to flee. However, it was then that she heard another lightsaber activate.

Master Goldar, with his yellow blade lit, rounded the corner to face Malefice directly. Saying nothing, the Pau'an sprinted across the terrace to lock blades with his opponent. Caught off guard, Malefice was forced to use the force to push the Master backwards, and to flee himself. Goldar, deciding to tend to Bev rather than to give chases, took her to the hospital, where she was given the room that Pots had just vacated.

Meanwhile, above Nar Shadaa, Gen. Graham was in his ready room reviewing reports submitted by his officers. It had been a laborious day, and he was exhausted. So, when the knock sounded on his door, he first ignored it. After a few minutes though, he was forced to answer it.

He looked up at his visitor with pleasant surprise, "Master Jedi, it is indeed a pleasure to see you here. I had no idea the Council had--" Tyler never finished his sentence. The green blade protruding from his midriff would prevent him from ever speaking again.

When his body was discovered--9 hours later--the Supreme Chancellor was contacted. His reply was brief: "The Guild has been highly cooperative in securing our objectives. The Black Sun must be destroyed. In order to not lose the atmosphere of friendly cooperative we have fostered with the Guild, I order this fleet to submit itself to the commands of Ninja and the Guild."

Across the planet, on his way to a secret meeting of the Vigos, Srehtiw survived yet another attempt on his life. Had he traveled in his regular vehicle, instead of his back-up (his driver had brought the wrong one) he would have been incinerated by the time-triggered bomb that detonated in the regular vehicle only a few minutes after the Vigo's departure.

Srehtiw had caught several breaks this day. His forces had managed to repel a massive attack by the combined forces of the Guild and the Republic. They had tried to finish seizing the moon's Southwest quadrant, but they had underestimated the power of the fortifications the Black Sun had erected and they had under-appreciated the tenacity of the Black Sun's army. Srehtiw's 6,000 casualties palled in comparison to the 50,000 lost by his opponents. Life was getting better--and luckier--for the Black Sun.

Buddamoose, who had been in a cantina on Nar Shadaa at the time, was sadly killed, along with everyone else in the cantina, by a stray rocket fired by one of the clashing forces.

Just for ease of reference, here is the list of NP actions open to you:

Hire a Spy: For 250 credits you may ask me a question (not about anyone's abilities or whether or not they are Jedi/Sith) and I will answer it. It must be a yes or no question.
Disguise: Disguise yourself in another ability...basically, pick an ability that is not exclusive to Jedi, Sith, or Force-users (unless you are one) and you can have it for the NP. Cost: 3,000 credits
Hire a Smuggler: Hire a smuggler to carry a cargo for you. Earn 225 credits for every 200 credits you pay the smuggler. You can only do this once every 3 NPs.
Hide - go into hiding for a NP. This makes you invulnerable to attacks from non-force users. You can only hide once every 5 NP
Hire Assassin - An assassin can reach any target, anywhere, at any time. He costs 800 to hire for one NP, but will not betray you.
Hire Bounty Hunter - A Bounty Hunter can reach any target, anywhere, at any time. He costs 500 to hire for one job, and will not betray you. He will kidnap one target for you, and will hold them for up to 4 NP. To kidnap someone, you must roll a 16-20.
Hire Mercenaries - Mercenaries can reach any target, anywhere, at any time. It costs 200 to hire them for 1 NP, but there is a 50% chance that they will simply take your money and not complete the job. You must roll an even number first for them to perform their job.
Imprison - expose a Smuggler, Crime Lord, or Unknown Assassin and force them to serve 2 NP in jail. Everyone will know who that player is.
Protect - if contacted by an ally in need, you may attempt to help them. You must role a 16-20 to save their life. You may not proactively protect people; only when you are contacted by someone who knows they are under threat can you protect them.
Kill - you may also kill players yourselves; no need to hire it out
Military Assault - you can only do this if you have an army (one which I have confirmed exists). See my earlier PM for more info.
Fundraise - Only for politicians. See my earlier PM for more info.

Remember: for most of you, using your ability also counts as a NP action.
