Yesterday’s attack on the Mikramurka city of Sundsele by Blood Raider cultists raises several rather alarming questions:
- Did the Krusual Tribe have information pertaining to the attack beforehand?
and if so
- Did the Krusual Tribe share any such information with Tribal or Republic security forces?
These questions are raised by the deeply suspicious timing of this attack, just 48 hours after The Scope included this report in its Galactic Hour news roundup;
Krusual Tribal Leadership Refuses to Comment on Rumors of Tronhadar Valley Fortresses Being Reactivated
For those unaware of the history of these fortresses, the Krusual’s strongholds in the upper Tronhadar valley were a constant source of difficulty for the Amarrian occupation forces, and were never fully conquered. They are among the most defensible locations on the planet; however their original use has been unnecessary for decades. Why then, would the Krusual suddenly reactivate them just days before a devastating attack on Mikramurka?
It is worth noting, as well, that the Krusual have long resented the Sebiestor’s position amongst the Tribes. For much of their Tribe’s history the Krusual have held a reputation as sly, insular, cunning, and unstrustworthy.
I hate to consider the possibility that the Krusual might have known about this attack in advance, yet their actions leave me with little else to assume.
I hate even more to imagine that they might have kept that information to themselves to the detriment of their Sebiestor cousins.
To the Krusual I implore this -
- Clarify the source and intention of the activity around the Tronhadar fortresses.
- Confirm whether there was any pre-existing intelligence relating to Blood Raider activity in the Republic in Krusual possession in the days before the attack on Mikramurka.
I hope this tragic event can be dealt with, and those responsible brought swiftly to justice.
