FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
From the Office of Grand Vicar Cronus IX
His Holiness, Cronus the Ninth of His Name, Vicarius Maximus of the High Synod of the Ecclesiarchy, has found the faith of the galaxy's denizens wanting. Fearing that their immortal souls will be condemned to the Nine Hells for the wanton abandonment of the Gods, His Holiness has decided to offer monthly homilies first to the Faithful then to the galaxy as a whole. While he hopes many will find the True Faith and embrace the Gods, he will be content for them to pause and reflect on their actions and the actions of those around them.
If you or your organization would be interested in a sermon dedicated to a particular subject or deity, please contact the Office of the Vicarius Maximus directly.
Years ago, the heretical cult of "the Way" preached, among other lies that only a sinful monotheistic heresy can develop, that meekness is the perfect path. They refused to use a starship if it had weapons. They abandoned the Maker, our great Lord Ziysan, for a misguided pacifism.
CORUSCANT (IIS) quot; The Imperial Palace was
vibrant with celebration today as crowds and official dignitaries amassed
for the coronation of Emperor Seele as the leader of the Galactic Empire.
Jubilant citizens hoping to catch a glimpse of the ceremony and pageantry
flocked to the Grand Imperial Plaza adjoining the Palace. Traffic on
Coruscant had been building since last week when the galaxy had been
surprised with an official communique from the Throne announcing Emperor
Guinar Ndengin's intention to retire as the Imperial head of state. The
communique, released to all worlds and all channels in the Empire also
declared that Lord Seele, Duke of Scipio and long-time Executor, would
become the 12th Emperor of the Galactic Empire.
The coronation began at 13:00hrs Galactic Central time in the Grand Throne Room of the Palace before an assemblage of Imperial personnel, foreign dignitaries and the powerful elite of the galaxy. Broadcast through large holoprojectors to the thousands of people watching outside of the Palace grounds, the ascension of Emperor Seele marks another peaceful transition to the most powerful position in the galaxy. Present at the ceremony were most members of Imperial High Command who were able to leave their posts abroad and several Imperial Union dignitaries, including King Jude Vatz and Prince Jeor. Lord Daelis Stanov, Captain of the Imperial Royal Guard, reported no incidents within the palace grounds; neither did casualties among the celebratory masses exceed nominal levels.
At the conclusion of the coronation ceremony Lord Ndengin proceeded to a low balcony overlooking Imperial Plaza where he was met with applause. Lord Ndengin first addressed the crowdson his successor. "Imperials. Citizens. Denizens of the galaxy. For the past five years I have been supported and spurred on by the trust you have placed in my reign over these past five years. I ask that you entrust and embolden my successorâs vision for the Empire with that same faith, loyalty, and dedication.Ladies, gentlemen, and other species, I present the guardian of the New Order, the patrician of our Empire, and my close friend: His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Seele". Excitement was evident the moment Emperor Seele appeared as the crowd erupted into cheers and enthusiastic applause as The Imperial Throne greeted each other warmly.
Lord Ndengin's reign is considered by many to have been one of the most prosperous in the eventful history of the Galactic Empire. He served as Executor to Emperor Cherokee and was lauded for his ruthless and effective offices during the neoteric transition to the standing regime after the despised Vodo Bonias was forced to abdicate the Throne in Year 11. Ascending to Emperor in Year 12, Lord Ndengin shouldered the momentous task of rebuilding not only the Empire, but the Imperial Union which he achieved through consolidating powerful alliances with the Tresario Star Kingdom and Black Sun. Ever an advocate for peace, he oversaw an end to the longstanding conflict between the Empire and Falleen Federation, resulting in the treaty of Zamael.
His success was not only limited to diplomatic and internal matters. Colloquially known as 'The Undying', Lord Ndengin rose to prominence as a member of the New Imperial Order where he was mentored by Lords Cherokee and Seele, seeing his career expand to posts such as Fleet Commanding Officer, Army Commanding Officer, and eventually Emperor. During his reign, Emperor Ndengin oversaw some of the largest military victories in recent galactic history, including the capture and execution of the New Republic Chief of State, Cheda Quche. Notable too was the decisive victory against The Mercenary Guild in the Churnis sector, restoring peace and order to a troubled populace with the destruction of The Guildâs organisation. In more recent memory, Imperial forces were able to turn what was planned to be the New Republic's greatest triumph into a bitter defeat during the Trellen Conflict in Year 16; the combined assault of the New Republic and Holowan was countered by Imperial Intelligence's Operation Romance under the leadership and careful planning of Lord Seele.
As the deafening roar of approval from the crowd subsided, the newly crowned Emperor spoke briefly to the crowd. Speaking of his ascension and the task that lay before him, Emperor Seele could be heard to establish the source of his pride on such an auspicious day for him. "The Empire's greatness comes from its people; its loyal officers, capable commanders and diligent citizens. It is a whole which is far superior than its constituent components and like any machine or organisation, is reliant on the faithful, capable, and coordinated effort of all of its components. It is being crowned the Emperor of one of the finest collections of hard-working and capable individuals the galaxy has ever seen, which is the source of my supreme pride today."
Emperor Seele has long been a prominent and powerful political force in the Empire with arguably the richest career of any Imperial in the distinguished annals of the Empire's history. Serving on the Imperial High Command of four previous Emperors, Lord Seele has made lasting and abiding reforms in all branches of the Empire over his career. Coming far from his early enlistment with the Imperial Army in Year 2, the new Emperor quickly rose to positions of trust and influence within the Empire with his sponsorship for membership in COMPNOR being directed by the then Emperor Charon, followed by the remarkable achievement of becoming the Director of Imperial Intelligence under Charon within 14 months of his enlistment. On the streets, revellers already started speculating on the military, commercial and civilian opportunities the reign of Emperor Seele I would bring.
With the rise of Emperor Seele, political commentators are confident
that the Empire will undoubtedly look forward into a new era which will be
built on the foundation raised up by the dynasty of Emperors Cherokee and
Ndengin. It is rumoured that Emperor Seele has been working closely with his
advisors and branch leadership to plan a pathway forward for the new regime,
aiming to advance upon the work of his predecessors. In a move that can be
interpreted as a recognition of this legacy of political stability and
economic prosperity, Emperor Seele appointed Lord Ndengin as his Executor, a
signal interpreted by analysts of the enduring friendship between the
The investiture of a dynamic, discerning leader in Emperor Seele to push forward with an already thriving Imperial culture and economy elicits optimism for the Empire's ongoing growth and spread of the New Order across the galaxy. An optimism which was palpable and unquestionable as the two members of The Throne withdrew from the balcony into the depths of the Imperial Palaceas the Imperial Plaza continued to resound for a long time after with the chants "Long live the Empire!"
High Council Ends Infestation
ARGAI, CRONESE MANDATE, TION CLUSTER
Golan II - Port Argolis Security Checkpoint
Marked for immediate release.
Year 18 Day 80 - Today saw the successful end of a five day operation by senior members of the Tion Hegemony High Council, according to a spokessentient from the Office of the Lady Hegemon.
Upon notification that Kray Voh, infamous bounty hunter and proprietor of Ever Light Transportation, was scheduled to arrive in Argai to gather an order for an Athakam MedTech customer, the High Council formulated a plan to capture the Yam`rii.
An arrest warrant was approved by a quorum of the sitting High Councillors on Day 75, as agents swarmed the Argai system, home of Athakam MedTech, to secure the system and wait-out the arrival of the acknowledged criminal.
Once the Yam'rii was in custody deliberation over trial and execution occurred, with immediate execution of Kray Voh being voted as the course of justice. Summary of charges include: attempting to kidnap a Tionese citizen, attempted bounty, operating illegally within Tionese space, offering bounties of top Tion officials, and criminal threatening of the Lady Hegemon.
The affected customer of Athakam MedTech was contacted post-operation by the Rector Superior of Athakam, who authorized a swift refund and arranged transportation for the delivery of the customer’s goods, including the care of a sand panther cub that Mr. Voh had in his possession.
The Tion High Council would like to offer support to any victims of Kray Voh’s schemes. If anyone having hired Ever Light Transportation believes they will have been affected by this apprehension, please contact Fleet Admiral Crislyn Anessa Waryn.

Downhearted Tion Hegemony Emboldened by Leadership (Posted by Crislyn Anessa Waryn on Year 17 Day 358)
GTNG -- Kazarak system, Sertar, Tion Cluster
But, in order to accurately report the story of Lady Barefoot’s transition to leader of the Tionese people, we must revisit the previous 60 days of the Tionese year. In the weeks leading up to the Tionese annual Day of Unity celebrations, rumors had begun circulating the worlds under the protection of the Tion Hegemony. Hushed voices in every bar, factory, and homestead could be heard asking the same question: "What has become of Lord Hegemon Asai?"
"Lord Takao Asai was the one who taught me the most about government life and planetary economics. I frankly owe everything to his teachings. I join all of Tion in their grieving for the loss of our leader, as I do for my long-time personal friend. But I can assure you, I will do my absolute utmost to continue to build on the work set upon by my predecessors. I am dedicated to seeing the Hegemony surge forward on a path of unlimited prosperity and unity for all Tionese. Tion will remain a neutral force within the galaxy, a committed member of the Galactic Concordiate, and a never fading beacon for all that is good in this galaxy!"
Following signing of the Desargorr Accord and her first official Hegemonial address, Lady Hegemon Barefoot, joined by her wife and their two children, hurried to Voss III where she welcomed the new head of Tion Engineering and Construction, now-Director Kulton Duine, to his new headquarters, before swiftly returning to Meeshae to hold the first High Council session of her tenure.
Among the most influential changes within the Tionese leadership was the naming of former Tion Military and Science Industries President, Abraari To as Chancellor. Sir To was succeeded at TMSI by long-time acting Vice President Stig`ray Morvo. In addition, former First Fleet Admiral William Radcliff was appointed Hyperion, Minister of Defense, his successor in First Fleet to be named early in the new year.
