Urgent news from Homroon, as Blood Raider attacks Holder family

Late afternoon on the 9th, a small Blood Raider squadron entered the upper atmosphere of Neda V, while a larger fleet main fleet started to bombard key targets on Neda III. Following reports of landing parties making planetfall on both planets, distress calls have been broadcast throughout the Khanid Kingdom but, given Neda’s remote location, no responses have yet been sent at the time of writing.

News of this attack comes three weeks after the capsuleer Maira Sorn Blackfire and her former warclone sister Azlina Sorn Blackfire were taken into custody by the matriarch of the Sorn family, Corellia Sorn, during a personal visit to Khanid Prime. The tension between the two sisters and the Sorn family ignited earlier this year after Lady Corellia Sorn condemned both as Sani Sabik. This allegation followed an attack on Sorn family holdings on Khanid Prime in which the sisters appear to have been involved but able to evade capture due to CONCORD regulation of infomorphs.


There have been further reports of heavy ground fighting on Neda III, as Blood Raiders’ blood harvesters met heavy resistance. A combined force of House Sorn and LUMEN personnel clashed with the harvesters head-on in order to protect the slave workers on House Sorn’s agricultural plantations. While heavy outgunned, House Sorn and LUMEN forces have the advantage of an entrenched position and local slaves have also reportedly taken up arms against the invading Blood Raiders.

Reports form Neda V, seem to indicate a smaller but more highly trained group of Blood Raider forces landing closer to the capital of the planet, Anahita, where LUMEN special forces are currently protecting the city’s population. News from the Holder family itself has gone dark after the Raiders’ initial first strike saw orbital bombardment hitting the Sorn estate grounds. Although satellite scans show the estate has sustained heavy damage, personal guards appear to be keeping the Blood Raiders at a distance, for now.


Khanid Public News Network tried to reach out to local Royal Khanid Navy stationed in the Youledian Constellation, KPNN only managed to get one comment from a Captain Andre of the Silver Lance.

“They knew the risks of settling that close to Delve, it takes time and resources. Resources that are hard to come by. Our priorities are simply elsewhere at this time. A small fleet is being scrambled as quickly as possible but may not, despite our best efforts, be ready to respond before it is already too late.”

In other news, the corporation and business Sorn Interstellar industries owned by Capsuleer Maira Sorn Blackfire, have been spotted near the border of the Kingdom, but due to ship cloaking they whereabouts is currently unknown.

Khanid Kingdom Deploys Troops to Neda System to "Quell Uprisings and Piratical Opportunists

Earlier this afternoon the Royal Khanid Navy entered Neda and opened fire on the Blood Raider fleet that had laid siege to Neda III and Neda V. After a heated battle, the remaining Blood Raiders fled orbit, although there were reports of a Loki class strategic cruiser spotted outrunning RKN forces to the planetary surface. The cruiser’s markings were not of any empire navy and used covert ops cloaking devices to avoid targeting long enough to rendezvous with an unmarked shuttle leaving from the peninsula where the Sorn Estate is located.

Reports from Neda III had been grim as the revolting slave camps saw orbital bombardment, followed by the 8th and 19th Royal Uhlans making landfall with the order to “Restore Order by Any Means Necessary.” As of the current time, fighting is still ongoing on Neda III, especially in the planetary capital of Avesta, although the worst seems to have died down for the moment.

Neda V still has pockets of Blood Raiders stuck between slaves and the combined forces of the Sorn guards, while House Avarr (a Tash-Murkon holder family) forces, which had been seconded to LUMEN to serve as boots on the ground, withdrew to provide aid to the wounded and make space for the 8th and 19th Royal Uhlans forces. These LUMEN forces promised to complete their withdrawal from Neda within the next 36 hours, and hand over control to the Military Governor and other local authorities. The planetary capital, Anahita has been freed from Blood Raiders as well as the Sorn Estate. However, reports of battle are still occurring between guerilla forces, Khanid ground troops and shattered Blood Raiders in the cities of both Nagari and Rigveda. News of 19th Royal Uhlans forces being transferred to the city of Rigveda, given it is the planet’s second-largest trade hub.

The Lady Corellia Sorn is still among the missing, but rescue attempts are still ongoing as most of the underground passageways collapsed during Blood Raider’s initial strikes. Lady Azlina Sorn Blackfire currently controls and organizes the Sorn forces, her sister Maira Sorn Blackfire been observed to lead rescue and medical teams on site.


Offworld transport shuttles have been busy all evening shipping off wounded for the Khanid Transport Storage station in Zephan, as medical centres and hospitals on Neda III and Neda V is already at capacity. Along with shuttles, many civilians are fleeing the planets for fear of Neda turning into a new Kahah. As this week is the anniversary of the blood bath that marked the slave revolt of Thebeka, that was ignited by a slave rebellion caused by the Blood Raider chemical Death Glow.

When asked to comment by PKNN, Directrix Lunarisse Daphiti of Khimi Harar stated:
“We were pleased to assist on short notice at the request of one of our Khanid noble members with respect to a threat to their family’s Holding. I commend, Lord Avarr, a Tash-Murkon noble, for tasking most of the forces dedicated to slowing the initial Blood Raider assaults. At this point, with the Khanid authorities now mobilized and in force, we yield.”
