:: End of the Purebloods! Holonet Broadcast::

The Holonet News Network logo appears on the screen as a Rodian reporter is shown

"Good day people of the Galaxy, we now bring you the latest up-to-date news from the Pureblood Front."
::Various videos play of different planets, with Joint Imperial/Republic forces winning against entrenched Pureblood positions, planing whichever flag the majority of the troops belong to::
"More planets in the Outer Rim continue to be reclaimed by the forces of the Joint Command; While the Empire and the Republic account for many of these victories, smaller groups have also been making headway. The Liberation of Ryloth is well under way by Dracling and Mandalorian forces, and even the Dweorgs have pledged their assistance to the Joint Command forces in retaking territory lost to the red menace."
::Various shots of Dracling and Mandalorian commandos intercut with Dweorg forces in power armor going against a large Sithspawn::

"Even the newly discovered world of Sundarr has made it to the Galactic scene, mobilizing the entirety of their (rather primitive) military force and joining the Republic forces stationed at the Hyperspace lane towards Pureblood territory. The entire Galaxy is working together to bring an end to these vile creatures, and we're closer to it than ever! Reports from anonymous sources in Joint Command Headquarters have revealed that Commando teams inserted deep into Pureblood territory have found the Crown World of the enemy Empire, even now spy satellites have begun taking video and sorties of Joint Command forces have begun attacks. It's only a matter of time before the tentacle-faced goons are put to an end once and for all.

We will begin out next update when Joint Command releases it's first video of the Pureblood Crown World. Stay tuned!"

::The Rodian fades away, the usual list of casualties that follows these broadcasts replaced with a list of Recruiting Stations on various world for the various military forces::

:: The Holonet News Network logo appears on the screen with a SPECIAL BULLETIN ::

"Friends of the Galaxy, we have a special bulletin for you today, directly from Joint Command. Our first glimpses of the Pureblood Crown World! And some information specifically from Command"

::Several, fairly low quality, shots are shown of a spy-sats view of a world, past its defenses and hovering in orbit somewhere. It looks to be made of two continents, connected by a long land-bridge; one side desert, one side temperate and nice. There isn't much detail or clarity right now, as the Republic/Empire is making sure that the satellites are not detected until they can get closer for higher quality communication.::

"While we can't offer much in the way of details, as there could be Pureblood Spies listening in to our conversations, we can confirm that there has already been activity on the surface of the Desert Continent. A massive explosion of some nature; while Joint Command has not commented on whether it was a Commando Raid, possible Pureblood industrial accident, infighting due to the sound crushing our forces will soon give them, or something else entirely, we will keep you up to date on everything!"

::A small video shows the desert side of the planet, roughly north west of the center of the continent, a massive explosion is seen from the satellite in orbit. Details are fuzzy, but it looks to have been within the ruins of a city, nothing else is made out due to the low-gain of the cameras::

"Remember, though victory is close we still need you! Go to your nearest recruiting centers today"

:: Holonet News Network Special Bulletin ::

"Breaking news coming from the Pureblood Front Today; a forward Commando Team has been lost over the Pureblood Crown World. Details are sketchy, but Joint Command has released a list of names, including a high ranking officer of the Republic *looks through his notes* Honor Guard Commander Grratatha. It would appear that their stealth shuttle was discovered during infiltration, it is presumed lost with all hands. There are several pieces of good news for today however as several commando teams have made it to the surface of the First Continent ((the temperate one)) and are wreaking havoc on Pureblood infrastructure. Obviously we cannot give to many details about this event in question, but the Empire has released some photos of the Commandos at work"

"Go get 'em! We have some more interesting news as well out of the Second, desert, Continent of the Crown World. Joint Command Spy-Sats have detected what appears to be a convoy moving from the destroyed Pureblood Refinery deep in the continent. Due to electromagnetic interference from past bombardments, Commando Teams have been unable to land in that area and have not been able to ascertain much about this; but it appears to be a makeshift collection of old vehicles and a couple hundred people. Joint Command has no information at this time but to say it doesn't appear to be Pureblood forces mobilizing: Could this be some of our missing people that the Purebloods have taken? We'll keep you updated on all breaking news"

:: A short video appears of one of the spy-sats buzzing the area where a convoy of people is seen moving, there isn't much detail but it looks like they managed to find some vehicles somewhere, as they move across the desert. It looks like they directly left the destroyed Refinery not long before its explosion. The video is still grainy due to the camera's quick information bursts, nothing else is seen ::

"People of the Galaxy we have something truly extraordinary to share with you today. Joint Command has released an official statement about the mysterious group of people moving through the Pureblood Crown World. We have better visuals and more clear imagery as allied forces move in towards the planet. Joint Command and our own HNN combat reporters have confirmed that what we are seeing is indeed a slave revolt against the Purebloods. Commando forces haven't been able to make contact with this group due to interference, but they have picked up short, clipped transmissions that seem to indicate that this group of heroes has begun freeing other slave encampments on the desert side of the planet. Spy-Sats have shown us images of this makeshift Army growing larger as it continues across the desert-scape, freeing other encampments, and other slaves apparently overthrowing their Pureblood overseers and joining them. "

Image

"We can't provide much more information right now, but Joint Command has agreed to send us all available footage from the spy-cams at a 5 hours delay, to prevent any enemy forces from honing on their positions. Right now from what we can see, the Purebloods are sending droids to harry them all along the way. We don't know their plans yet, our top analysts suggest they are moving towards the land bridge but we cannot tell to what goal. Suffice to say, if the Joint Command forces don't reach the Crown World in time, this Army may have a difficult time indeed. But even this shows that the shackles and depredations of the Purebloods is falling, and the will of the Galaxy is far stronger than their tyranny.

Stay tuned for more"

:: HNN Jingle as their ongoing coverage of the Warfront on various planets is interrupted with yet another newscast ::

"People of the Galaxy we bring yet another set of good news today. This will be a short update as there isn't much to share except that Joint Command is finally en route! We have broadcasted this with a several hour delay to prevent any insidious spies from gaining any advantage. But we have received confirmation from both Imperial and Republic Admirality that a massive fleet comprised of every spacefaring species in the Galaxy has already set up beachheads in the systems surrounding the Pureblood Crown World. Empire, Republic, Hutts, Draclings, Dweorg, Wookiees, Mandalorians, Chiss, Rodians, Twi'leks, even criminal organizations such as the Black Sun and Black Reach Syndicate have sent spacefaring vessels against the Pureblood menace. It is no exaggeration to say that this is the largest combined fleet ever assembled in the history of the Galaxy.

We will show you a few exclusive shots to come to us, the invasion will start soon. It's coming time to end this. For the Galaxy!"

:: Holonet News Special Announcement ::

:: The Chiss anchor appears on screen, his face slightly crestfallen as he composes himself to read the news ::

"People of the Galaxy, throughout the last week we have watched and marveled as a group of brave slaves revolted against their Pureblood captors and lead an exodus towards the major Landbridge connecting the two continents of the Crown World. That group has grown from a paltry few dozen, to tens of thousands of people fighting for their lives and their freedom against what appears to be an unstoppable force, waiting for the forces from Joint Command to arrive and finish their liberation and end their ordeal."

:: Major highlights from the past week, the destruction of the refinery, liberation of slave camps, pitched battles against Droid and Pureblood forces (from the view of the spy-sats) are played, until it finally ends up with the army of slaves in a Valley terminating at a Mountain and large dam ::

"I regret to inform you that, as of six hours ago, that force is apparently no more. Pureblood forces forced the freedom fighters into an untenable position in a mountain valley, cut off from escape they fought bravely for several hours. We were unable to see the end of these stalwart heroes, as some kind of massive explosion reverberated through the Dam, destroying it and unleashing its mass of water. At that point a Pureblood fighter made a lucky shot and destroyed the Joint Command Spy-Sat that was over the area, it took some time for a new one to make its way to the position, but what they saw was a scene of utter destruction. The dam destroyed, most of the bodies washed away with the water, but there appears to be no life; and from what is known of the area from spy-sats, no way for those people to have made it out safely. The one silver lining of that incident, it is estimated that the revolt was such a threat that the Pureblood sent a full 40% of their Droid army to stop it, along with many high level Pureblood Overseers, which the Rebels took with them when they died."

:: The final battle site, miles upon miles of destruction caused by the release of the dammed river, the entire area looking completely different from the initial screens of the area ::

"We have a message direct from Mon Mothma of the New Republic"

"Though they are now lost, we must not mourn their passing, but take up their torch and continue the fight against the Pureblood enemy. The Galaxy is united against the foe, the sacrifice of these men and women will not be forgotten and will instead ignite the flames of our resistance even more. For the New Republic, for the Galaxy, we will stop the Purebloods and finish the fight these rebels started. May the Force be with us all"

:: Holonet News special report! ::

"VICTORY! People of the Galaxy we have won! We have just received word that the Joint Command forces have defeated the Pureblood Emperor! Not only that, we have confirmation that the brave slave army that we thought destroyed not only survived but played a pivotal role in surrounding the Pureblood Palace and preventing the escape of the Emperor or any of his forces! Though great sacrifice, and pitched battle our forces proved victorious. Even now they are wiping up the rest of the evil invaders forces, and while there are still a few worlds under Pureblood control those will return to the citizens soon enough.

We at HNN can't express our gratitude to the soldiers of the Galaxy, and while the peace between the New Republic and Empire may not last beyond this day, they have shown that they will fight along side each other to save the Galaxy. We do have sad news to report though as Imperial Emperor, Darth Vader, died during the final assault. A brave group of warriors (we are trying to verify their identities, it has been confirmed it was Imperial and Republic soldiers) managed to fight their way to the Pureblood Emperor, defeating him but the foul sorcery they used allowed this Emperor to arise again and again. Lord Vader was wounded in this fight, and after the warriors defeated the Emperor and his lackies he stayed behind to make sure they stayed defeated, and was lost when the Palace collapsed onto itself. The Galaxy mourns for the loss of such a brave leader, only time will tell what the future is for the Empire now.

Image

Now is not the time for mourning, now we celebrate our victory. At the end of the week we will post a list of confirmed casualties, as well as retractions! Now that we know the Purebloods did indeed take slaves, many of the names on our casualty list or MIA list will officially be changed. Stay tuned for that! And now we leave you with some photos of our soldiers in action"
