Artus Prime… a world once mined for crystals now a barren rocky land of sprawling nothingness and bottomless pits fill with certain death… this was the next stop on the Hutt tour. It was here that the Cartel held Hutt Night. This night on stage was Bareesh brother extrodinare Rolga Bareesh, along with the angelic Anda Anjiliac and some newcomer Hutt from the Anjiliac clan. Joining them on stage were henchlings Anjiliac Majordomo Emily and Bareesh affliate Minx Bade who got the show started…
Minx Bade shouts: “THE CARTEL WILL HEAR FROM ELWYN PHOENIX, CAPTAIN OF THE DESTINY”
Elwyn Phoenix: “Thank you rolga i shall only be a moment. first i’d like to thank you for your tip. Last we spoke you helped me find something and found it i did and have joined it faithfully. this time i seek something else…This matter However. i’d prefer a privite meeting on. Reason is such content to be discussed might be harmful to the wrong party if spoken in the open”
Rolga Bareesh: “chuba boga putta tana gopah kilin magok kox be nami je uni gona gona, goora be kon kon nallya so mwa boga”
Which then Captain Phoenix stepped closer and whispered something to Rolga Star News couldn’t hear… but a meeting appears to have been arranged later for the Captain to bring his business before the Hutt Cartel in private.
Anda Angiliac: “…the cartel council would like to issue a statement regarding recent events…It has come to the attention of the cartel that there has been a recent violent attack on dignitaries of the federation. We also understand that the perpetrator of these attacks has been taken into custody. We would like to state for inquiring minds that we have no knowledge of these events, and indeed would appreciate if the federation were to cooperate with other civil peoples and divulge information regarding the identity of this brazen attacker. Any organization or individual brash enough to attack the federation directly in such a manner is a threat to all peaceful people. The Cartel Council will not stand for this manner of anarchy.”
Of course this prompted Jesma Pearl.. the Galactic Federations liasion to the Hutts to ask for audience and when she was allowed to speak…
Jesma Pearl: “Greetings great ones. The Galactic Federation of Free Republics thanks the Hutt Cartel for their concern. I will take your request to know the name of the perpetrator to the Federation and express my own belief that it would be beneficial for you to be informed, if we’re able to learn it. It will be up to the various delegations, but I will let them know of your desire and concern.”
Anda Anjiliac: “jeejee tulamos-ando jejeska boska… jeejee hagwa suddamos-ando kickeong ateema”
Emily: “Lady Anda says we have begun our own search, We have not learned anything at this time.”
Jesma Pearl: “The serious concern your eminences give this matter greatly honors us.”
Anda Anjiliac: “It is in the best interest of all civilized people to not allow this type of brazen attack to go without reprimand and justice. Was there anything else you had to say to us Ambassador?”
Jesma Pearl: “Not at this time, thank you your greatness.” and she departed back into the crowd…
Anda Anjiliac: “I will take a moment to introduce my cousin, Lord Juura of Anjiliac, I spoke of him last week and he has seen fit to grace us this evening. He is an honored guest. I would also like to take this opportunity to recognize the efforts of Clan Imari and their Alor Ithoros Imari. Their hospitality has been quite well received. I would like to remind everyone that tomorrow afternoon they are holding their weekly combat tournament once again here on Artus Prime, I myself will be staying on planet for the event tomorrow.”
and from the crowd Ithoros Imari: “Your words grace us with credit we are hardly deserving of, Madam Anda. We are happy to receive those who are willing to respect our neutrality, as well as even grace us with visits. I look forward to your presence at the tournament tomorrow.”
Then Star News editor Kaelee One spoke up, asking for permission to speak she made her way up in front of the Hutts… “To endorse Clan Imari’s fights.. I challenge the whole Cartel.. or whoever dares to show.. for a day of betting. I will go bet for bet with anything the Cartel dares to risk losing at tomorrows fights on Artus prime.”
There was some discussion among the Hutts but in the end no reporters were killed or maimed and Anda agreed to the wager while Rolga said he would consider it.
And with that another Hutt Night came to an end.
