I'm working on a newsletter for the base, but we need a name for it. Anyone have any ideas?

So far all I've got is Nar Shaddaa News, but I'm sure we can come up with a more catch title.

Ideas anyone?

Nar Shaddaa Network? Gotta be something flashier than that.

Edit:

how about something like Nar Shaddaa Smuggler's Network?

My suggestion would be to use something that relates to communication, like the Legion newsletter is Comlink… a communication device.

Emergency Beacon
Datanet
Ghostwave
Hypercom
Holobank
Hyperwave
Transmissions

It might be just me...

but with "Shadow" in the name...
it is kind of a throwback to "Shadow Squadron"...

I really liked Shadowcast... partly because it was an obscure EU reference.

Quote:
Shadowcast was a secret communications network established in 1 BBY by the Rebel Alliance to communicate with operatives and spies during the Galactic Civil War.

The network transmitted encrypted messages within commercial advertisements via the HoloNet. Ironically, the very commercial messages used were those that paid for Imperial propaganda programming. Each transmission over the network was hand encrypted and dispatched over a ghostwave that attached itself to a commercial transmission. The code key was altered with every sixth broadcast across the network.

During the war, Shadowcast transmitted messages to thousands of Rebel agents placed behind Imperial lines and remained a closely held secret. Its detection countermeasures were so successful that the network had continued use during the first four years of the New Republic before it was destroyed by Leia Organa Solo.


While doing a little bit of digging, I stumbled across the shadowfeed:

Quote:
CIS Shadowfeed was a Separatist-sponsored news program broadcasted throughout the galaxy during the Clone Wars. Most shadowfeeds originated from the communications arrays in Murkhana City.

It was the CIS version of the Republic HoloNet. It was used to spread propaganda to worlds affiliated with the CIS.


That's a little bit of the background of the name.
