In other news, alliances within the surviving biologicals were jeopardized by recent events involving Mutos of Rhatsibahn, Apshain Federation, and the Raths, descendants of the great Seth Naf Gar.
It seems that Mutos Rhat smugglers set up a smuggling operation on a Rath world without informing the Raths. When the local Rath government began to report incidents by guerrilla units in the planet’s hinterland, Imperial advisers were sent to survey and evaluate the threat. To their dismay, over 400 guerrilla units were detected on the world. Protests were sent to Mutos diplomats but no adequate explanation was forthcoming.
In a separate event, Apshain forces were mauled by Mutos forces who apparently knew little or nothing about the alliance agreement between the Apshain and Mutos. After a vigorous protest by the Apshain, a Mutos communique was sent, admitting that the alliance treaty agreed to so long ago had never been formally rhatified by the Mutos assemby. Rhat diplomats subsequently offered reparations payments over a five year period and promised immediate action to rhatify the alliance treaty.
