    The End of the Great Hunt

    The Great Hunt instilled the fear of the Hutt Cartel in Jedi of all shades. Though it eventually became an exclusive target on the backs of members of the Jedi Order, all who carried a lightsaber learned to think twice before flashing it in public, as thousands were turned in during the duration of the hunt, even after Supreme Mogul Gulla the Hutt was replaced by Svallos after an alliance was stricken with the Sith Empire—then the so-called "Jedi Exiles."

    But the Great Hunt officially came to an end when Colimma the Hutt, the successor in overseeing the Hunt after Gulla's death, was usurped and his power base absorbed into the rising power of Nem'ro Besadii Ziir's criminal empire. Without Colimma, Nem'ro decided to focus his attention and credits on other more pressing matters, and thus the Hutt bounty on all lightsabers came to an end. But the Great Hunt's impact would be felt for a long time to come.

    With new leadership in the Hutt Cartel under the new Sith-backed Supreme Mogul, two new members of the Hutt Council of Families, and a host of new criminal enterprises taking root in the Cartel, such as Nem'ro's spice and slave empire, the Wook's Crew, the Toasted Twi'lek gang, and Spectre's elite group of slicers, the Hutt Cartel commanded great wealth, power, and fear in the Outer Rim Territories and began to turn their sights towards gathering resources the fastest way possible...

    Long Arm of the Hutt

    The Council of Families has ordered the invasion of Makeb: a Mid Rim planet located at grid coordinates Q-13. Makeb remains outside the jurisdiction of the Republic and is not far from Hutt Space, but has recently been discovered to play host to large reserves of both Isotope-5 and coaxium. Isotope-5 is a gaseous substance that can be used to powers electronic equipment like datapads, computers, weapons, and even ships. Coaxium is an extremely useful fuel source that can be used to upgrade the hyperdrives of starships. Obtaining both would not only bolster Hutt-superiority, but would also bring in large amounts of revenue to the Cartel.

    Therefore, all Hutt Cartel operatives are ordered to Makeb to bring back shipments of these precious resources by means of smuggling or however else they deem necessary. Shipments can be turned into any member of the Hutt Council to curry favor with the various lordas; but, be advised, this means there will be competition for those resources. Skirmishes between rival criminal gangs are likely. Therefore, for the duration of the conflict on Makeb, all threads taking place on Makeb will default to Open/PvP. The IC credit reward, however, will be substantially more than the lightsaber bounty to account for the increased risk.

    This mission has also been offered to independent smuggling operations who seek to curry favor with the Hutts, which, again, invites competition. Be also advised that, while Makeb is not part of the Republic, its proximity to Republic space might also garner negative attention from the neighboring government. Shipments can be turned into the Hutt lorda of choice in the corresponding thread in the bounty boards. The price for a shipment turned in by members of the Hutt Cartel is 2 million credits. The price of a shipment turned in by independent, outside sources, is 1 million credits. Happy smuggling.

    Supreme Mogul Gulla Hestilic Ujalli’s Declaration of The Great Hunt

    Holo displays all around Hutt Space flicker to life, projecting the morbidly obese mass of The Supreme Mogul, Gulla Hestilic Ujalli. Waving a comically short arm compared to the rest of his frame, The Supreme Mogul issued his decree. “Bohdon dee Yih Cartel, pheciua an kung dee yoskah, an kaee bahva mevag an luaha. Yabee kohpa wa lhoiase apoya peee jee, Gulla Hestilic Ujalli banang tah hou peee bu saian dee Lhonu Vot!” Raising both arms, a thunderous applause can be heard over the loudspeakers, the crowds gathered at The Supreme Moguls palace applauding the declaration. During the lull in the Supreme Moguls speech, the holo displays repeated the declaration in basic, and a variety of other common languages. “Citizens of the Hutt Cartel, criminals and scum of the galaxy, and anyone seeking wealth and glory. Today marks a momentous occasion as I, Gulla Hestilic Ujalli declare this day as the beginning of The Great Hunt!”

    Waving a pudgy hand once more, the crowd silenced. Once more the wide mouth moved, continuing Gulla’s decree to declare the target of the Great Hunt “Tah noa-a wa Lhonu Vot bacaka tee kae baua. Bu vot cetka bu hih yoskah. Heee noa-a nobata kouoe mee mo pacmoka-ala che mee pomkox'a, votetka. Ata bu cuee hutta pomkox'a doth kanu see tah Lhonu Vot. Azalus an kahkonh, mee hatkocanh chateua bahva bu no see Champio, che cheespa vot Jeedai!” The applause came once more, though more cautious, muted as the Bounter Hunters assembled at the palace considered the ramifications of the Great Hunt they would be embarking on. Once again translators were hard at work ensuring that the great Gulla Hestilic Ujalli’s words reached as many ears as possible. “This will be a Great Hunt unlike any other. The hunting ground the entire galaxy. There will be no respite or mercy for your prey, hunters. Only the most glorious prey is worthy of this Great Hunt. Dangerous and endangered, many will die seeking the title of Champion, for you will be hunting Jedi!”

    Listeners waited with bated breath, the Grand Mogul had not yet declared the prize, though with prey as dangerous as Jedi, it would have to be well worth the danger. The Supreme Mogul did not disappoint. “Bu uyat! Che tytung jicala-suom see kae pauay koose bai wa Kajidic bunko an chayanh bai bu Kajidii, kae Cartel Votetka noa-a baugiha cay duton keemonhofwachadon mon phabeka! Heee banesa tee cay bu hutta Yih Cartel hatkocanh melam wa bie see gomon duhokeecha don keemon dokwacha phabeka!” The crowd roared once more, killing a single Jedi would net many of the bounty hunters more than they earned in a single year. “The reward! For every lightsaber of any color brought to a Kajidic palace and presented to the Kajidii, any Cartel Hunter will be awarded with one million credits! Those unaffiliated with the glorious Hutt Cartel will receive a sum of five hundred thousand credits!” The translators spoke once more, before the transmission was cut, Hutt Space abuzz with anticipation of the bloodshed to come.


    The Great Hunt

    Supreme Mogul Gulla Hestilic Ujalli has declared The Great Hunt to have begun. The target of the Great Hunt is Jedi, a foe that once hindered the Hutt Cartel’s expansion, but NOT the Jedi Exiles. To collect the reward, one simply needs to bring a lightsaber to one of the Kajidic Halls, exchanging it for the promised sum of credits. For members of the Hutt Cartel, a reward of 1,000,000 credits will be given in exchange for a lightsaber of any color; blue, green, red, yellow, or any of the other multitude of colors that a Jedi might wield. For those unaffiliated with the Hutt Cartel, a sum of 500,000 credits will be rewarded in exchange for a lightsaber. As is tradition, at the end of the Great Hunt, the best hunters will be rewarded with a chance to compete for the Supreme Mogul’s favor and the title of Champio, Champion of the Hutt Cartel.
