All Good Things...
By Arnie Hamcheck
It seems that a loud mouth will indeed eventually get you heard, but sometimes that draws attention of those who have the power to bring silence. The Golden Beetle has operated under the pillars of good reporting for the entirety of our time spent serving the community of Nar Shaddaa. We have striven to inform the people of what was unfolding around them and bring their attention to what we felt was important news. That has been put on hold as this reporter refuses to think that the voice of the people can be silenced forever. If not this paper, then another one like it will rise up to be a counterpoint to the official word coming down from on high.
An official cease and desist order came through to the Golden Beetle from a glorious Hutt who shall go unnamed least we wish to bring more misfortune to our door than has already been visited upon it. In this order, we were required to immediately cease operations for the foreseeable future making it rather impossible to continue as we are, but fear not, we shall see a voice rise from the Lowers soon enough. That is my prediction. Nar Shaddaa is gritty and untameable. No matter how hard the Hutts try, they cannot keep us all quiet for long.
In my parting words, I encourage you to not lose hope, to not give up, and to not remain silent.
This reporter has done his level best to serve his community well and hopes that the people have thought so too.
Take care, Smuggler’s Moon.

A Letter from the Editor
By Devrim Eran
I would like to take a moment to thank the readership of The Golden Beetle for supporting us. We could, in fact, never have made it without all of you. It has been our great privilege to report the news to you and be a source of reliable information for the citizens of Nar Shaddaa. We hope that you remember us fondly in the days to come, but mostly we hope you seek to find your own voice as we, sadly, have to go quiet. In uncertain times we must support one another and look to what we can do in our own community rather than hope those around us will take up the banner.
Be well, Nar Shaddaa.
((Thank you, Malgus RP, for all the support you have shown this little publication. I have truly enjoyed cranking it out once a month and highlighting some amazing RP creations by players. Even though I shall be taking a hiatus from the game and therefore the Golden Beetle, it has been my great pleasure to provide a little amusement and fun while I was here. Be Good! - Ruchira))
