its a long time since i updated here, but sufficient to say that Cari, Elcann, Zeb and i are still alive, but between leaving the core systems, being in hiding and finding some pretty strange things out, there has been little time to update here. and i am certain that the Emperors people have been trawling the holonet as well as anywhere else they can think of for word of any surviving Jedi . Of course we cannot give our present location here for that reason - luckily updates to this page are now encrypted through a completely random code that cannot be broken logically, therefore its safe enough to update here.
please bear in mind that names are now changed to protect the people concerned.
we left Coruscant some weeks ago, finally. We had caught up with a contact i have had for several years, in fact if it wasn't for the drunken space pirate that everyone thought was a waste of space, I don't think that we would have ever been able to get off world.
Within days of the attack on the Temple, hours in fact I believe, a list had been released on the holonet detailing the names and where possible images, of the Jedi they believed survived the attack on the Temple and the attacks around the Galaxy. Of course of our little group who escaped, we were all on the list. So were quite a few known "supporters" of the Jedi and those who had aided us in past years. Its the most thorough attempt to destroy not only us, but all influence as well.
We got offworld as our contact was on that list also, and wanted to leave as quickly as possible. Luckily with his underworld contacts he was able to purchase a new freighter under an assumed identity. In the meantime we all managed to alter our appearances so that at least to the eyes of any bounty hunters we no longer look the same. That doesn't of course change DNA or anything like that, but even a superficial difference can be of help and despite the dangers of being seen to be involved with the remnants of the Jedi, there are those who are still on our side.
It is very easy to look back on what happened and loose hope - even easier to think of all the friends lost, and in these times where the galaxy is once again ruled by the Sith, to give up, but those of us that survived have to remain true to our path and know that we have to keep going. The Jedi have to survive, somehow.
There is already growing resistance to the new empire. Nothing formally declared, but in the background there are beginnings to form a resitance.
There is something else you should all know. If you remember when I wrote about the trip to Tattooine searching for the Sith Lord, and there was this strange evidence of some strange genetic experiment, more information has come to light that leads me to believe that Anakin was actually created. As a fulfillment to an old Sith prophecy. Anakin, in case anyone is not aware, is alive and now known as Darth Vader. He does not appear as his old self though, he was confronted by ObiWan Kenobi, so I hear, and was injured and now lives inside a life support suit. There are enough pictures of "Lord Vader" on the Holonet for all to see.
Here, in the Outer Rim our group are establishing a hidden Jedi centre, and keeping our heads down, although we are in contact with some resistance groups. This update is simply to let you know that we are still around, although laying low, and there will, i hope, be more news soon.
