Pandemonium on Ryloth; Empire Did Not Want to Govern It Anyway

Insurgent Cham Syndulla of Ryloth

DALCHON SYSTEM - Ryloth descended further into anarchy today, as rival rebel factions struggled for power in the renegade, Twi'lek-dominated system. Imperial forces decided that the system has proven ungovernable, with local population incapable of achieving requisite levels of civilization.

Arriving in the system in order to re-establish a minimal level of peace and security in the far, Outer-Rim end of the Corellian Run, Imperial Forces encountered a pandemonium in orbit around the Ryloth system's three planets. Intelligence analysts aboard the vessels of the Imperial navy group sent to pacify Ryloth assessed that rival rebellious factions were striving for local supremacy.

Terrorists like Cham Syndulla, who even during the days of the Republic was a guerilla activist against the republican government of Ryloth, are considered to simply make ryloth ungovernable without thorough re-education of the local population.

As a result, Imperial forces largely withdrew, allowing the disparate Rebel factions to quarrel among themselves.

Critics argued that the Emperor had ordered Ryloth's autonomy rescinded, demanding to know why the Navy was unable to deliver.

"Just because the Empire does not recognize Ryloth's autonomy," Mr. Prop Agandist of the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR) told HNN, "does not mean that the Empire must spend the blood and treasure to bring Imperial governance to this anarchic corner of the galaxy."

Senior Outer-Rim Analyst Benn Gleck explains the inherent problems of the Ryloth system and the Outer Rim.

HNN Outer-Rim analyst Benn Gleck explained the inherent problems of bringing Imperial civilization to the far-flung reaches of the Outer Rim.

"Aliens," Gleck said.

Galactic civilization was created and maintained by humans of Core Worlds. Only they have created the integral institutions which can maintain an interplanetary society worthy of the label 'civilization'. Aliens can mimick what humans do, which is why so many aliens in the Core Worlds are able to live within Imperial society. However, on the Outer Rim, human influence is not sufficiently established to gain an adequate foothold.

"Left to themselves, aliens will quarrel and struggle for meager resources, and for each minor warlord to be the hegemon of his own fiefdom," Gleck argued.

"It's best that they are left to do the bloodletting themselves," Gleck advised. "Perhaps when enough of them have died they will realize the bounty of Imperial governance.

We had a fun, little 6-person tournament at Geeks & Games, in Oregon City, today. Rebel players outnumbered Imperials 2:1, which meant a lot of Rebel-on-rebel. There was also one Empire-on-Empire fight, since that's how the Swiss worked out.

In the meantime, Geeks & Games, as well as the Gaulus Sector which it represents, much be considered a wretched hive of Scum and other Rebels.
