Emperor Palpatine Orders Calamari Insurrection Suppressed

Admiral Ren Darvox, commanding the Suppression of Calamari Campaign

IMPERIAL CENTER (CORUSCANT) - In response to the temerity of the Mon Calamari and the Quarren species to declare their treason against the Empire, Emperor Palpatine has ordered Admiral Ren Darvox of the Pakuuni sector to ensure that Imperial authority remains complete throughout those territories in and surrounding the Calamari sector.

Last week, the Mon Calamari and Quarren species of the Dac system made their treason against the Empire explicit with a so-called declaration of independence from the legitimate authority of the Empire.

According the the Imperial order, the denizens of the Dac system are commanded to submit to Imperial authority at once in order to gain the maximum allowable clemency from His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Palpatine. The Calamari and Quarren have declared independence, but are suspected to be in league with the Rebellion.

According to Grand Moff Ardus Kaine of Oversector Outer, "should collusion between these sea-dwelling species and the Rebellion prove to be true, then the Imperial judgement is expected to be capital rather than relatively indulgent."

Admiral Darvox is executive fleet admiral of the Pakuuni Sector Group and has been commissioned with authority over the sector fleets formerly comprising the Maldrood Oversector during the Clone War. Darvox will be directly answerable to Grand Moff Kaine.

Strategic analysts expect the first encounters to occur in the Pakuuni and Caluula systems. These systems represent choke nodes in the galactic hyperroute network. Holding these two systems prevents commercial traffic to and from the Calamari sector.

The Calamari insurrection comes not long after Captain-of-the-Line Charis Naboobo defeated the Rebel warlord Lyraeus in the nearby Colundra sector. Captain Naboobo was elevated in rank to Commodore and is expected to contribute to the suppression of the Calamari.

This is the start of a narrative campaign to lend a story and stakes to our games of Armada and X-Wing. It is intended to lead to the Massing at Sullust Mon Cala events scheduled for the weekend of October 2-4. More information about the times, dates, and other specifics of those events in and around Portland can be read in the red text of this announcement: Mon Calamari Declare Treason Against Empire. For more narrative background and a regional map, see here.


  1. As a newly promoted man who now commands many Regiments and Fleets of his own, I have read the briefing I have decided that whilst searching for the traitorous Ceresi Faran, it would be wise to relocate troops and resources to the suppression of the also traitorous Mon Calamari. Anything that will aid bringing this galaxy to peace I am proud to be a part of.

    (How do we participate? It said a narrative leading to the "Massing at Sullust" and as someone who greatly enjoyed the UXGC this sounds quite fun and is something that I would love to be a part of.)

    Long live the Empire!

    You participate by sending me your battle reports. Please include full builds for both parties, the mission played, and who had initiative. See below the jumps on my battle reports for the preferred format.

    It won't be as calculated at UXGC was, but the wins and losses will certainly be taken into account (spin notwithstanding).]
