The Death Watch is composed by warrior Mandalorians who follow the Canons of Honor, a Mandalorian text of law and behavior aimed at helping warriors attain glory and personal honor. The Canons' texts were extrapolated from the Resol`nare, the six central tenets of the Mandalorian culture.

As in ancient days, the Death Hunt is organized by Mandalorians seeking to find greater challenges and prove their strength.

Providing a short statement to Krath News, Max said, “This is a Mandalorian cultural event to find the best warriors of the galaxy, I would like to extend an invitation to all of those who claim to be warriors to learn the Mandalorian ways. I would also like to thank our sponsors for their support, especially those who continue to support us every year."

He released the following statement during an emergency press conference called by Death Watch officials: "The Bounty Hunters Guild's authorities have made an attempt to spy on and capture Death Watch Mandalorians. This is a petty strategy planned by their puppet master, the Tresario Star Kingdom. Our Nite Owls special forces are ready to deal with the Bounty Hunters Guild at all levels. We have already identified several of their members." According to Peter Max, a thorough investigation by the Death Watch revealed the Bounty Hunters Guild to be operated by the Tresario Star Kingdom.
Max went on to say: "We will absolutely not tolerate harassment by invaders and agitators, regardless of the severity of the offense.We will respond firmly and will not hesitate to wage a ruthless war."
A New Dawn

The New President of Basilisk Industry Phoenix Hamid said: “We were able to form our production faction. I welcome everyone who has joined our side and also promise great future for everyone who works with us. Let’s get strong together and don’t forget we don’t fear anything in the valley of Death.”
Commander turned traitor
Former 2IC Fragdosk Fyezz looted and attempted to destroy Death Watch by expelling all active Mandalorians from the main database, Overlord Peter Max addressed Fragdosk´s actions in a message to all Death Watch Mandalorians who have shown their loyalty to Death Watch and Re-Joined the Organization;
“Sucuy gar ner vode, in an attempt to stop our movement, Fragdosk Fyezz stole our credits, battle droids and some of our raw materials, Fragdo served Death Watch for many years , however, his true intentions were revealed last week when he performed this coward action and then ran away, I can assure you this was nothing but a small setback that has already been resolved, our credit reserves are currently stable and we can easily produce thousands of more battle dorids to replace those stolen, I am now declaring Fragdosk Fyezz dar'manda and approving any operation to arrest him, Death Watch is now stronger than before and security measures will be taken to ensure that this does not happen again” Nite Owls infiltrators later confirmed that Fragdosk was corrupted by the Tresario Star Kingdom, who in Peter Max´s opinion have attempted to hide their actions because of shame that their operation did too little damage to their target. it was confirmed that Fragdosk is dead, Death Watch commanders believe he committed suicide as regret from his actions.
End of an Alliance
Overlord Peter Max announced to Death Watch´s News agency “The Liberator” that he would withdraw Death Watch from the Rift Alliance. This move, while perceived as radical by some, would allow the Death Watch to take any necessary actions against any organization without worrying about diplomatic repercussions.
“We will no longer have to go to any council to conduct our military action against our enemies” stated the Mandalorian.
According to sources, other factors contributed to this move. The leadership of Death Watch was concerned with increasing political pressure from the New Republic towards the Krath Dynasty regarding Krath’s policy of sharing Republic technology with Rift Alliance members. There had also been several intelligence leaks from NRI containing private Rift Alliance discussions. These sources also claimed that the New Republic had defamed the Death Watch for performing operations which the Death Watch claim did not exist.
“We witnessed how the New Republic treated us as a nuisance, almost as an obstacle, even. The Rift Alliance has been fighting the Imperial Union with far more tenacity than the Galactic Alliance has done. The fact that the Galactic Alliance continued to look at us as secondary to its efforts was both frustrating and baffling. Many years of loyalty and assistance to the Galactic Alliance were repaid with betrayal by the New Republic. However, we would not want to affect the Krath Dynasty´s position within the Galactic Alliance, so we chose to leave the alliance. Despite this, we retain the warriors worthy right to keep all technology produced by our own resources.” One senior official within the Death Watch was quoted as saying.
The Death Watch leader regrets the capture of Lazarus Kell and other Krath officials including a Mandalorian from Aliit (clan) Ar'Klim, and stated:
“While the New Republic was offering material aid to Krath, we were on an operation to recover and rescue those who were captured. We consider the life of great warriors as being worth far more than any technology the NR can offer. Be sure that the capture of our brothers will not go unpunished. Varro Belle, TSK, and their affiliates will feel the wrath of the true Mandalorian faith.”
This announcement was made just one day after Peter Max met with Rift Alliance leaders and informed them that the Death Watch would focus on restoring Mandalorians to their ancient customs. Max, who has often blamed other Mandalorian organizations for misguiding their members and clans into following mercenary and pacifist ideologies, announced a desire to steer all Mandalorians back to their historical warrior ideology.
The Death Watch is now a completely independent entity, unaffiliated with any governing body. Instead, they seek the warrior’s path of honor.
after the betrayal of Fragdosk Fyezz, Overlord Peter Max re-assessed security measures, and evaluated its command staff before assigning a new Akaan'alor. However, after months of vacancy, today Death Watch officials have announced the promotion of Clan Delitrox leader Maltron Dias to Akaan'alor of Death Watch. “Maltron Dias has served Death Watch for many years. He has proven his skills as a pilot and warrior on many missions and assaults against the Tresario Star Kingdom. We have no doubt he will be a great leader and will bring glory to his clan and the Death Watch!” Peter Max declared on a holo-transmission to all Death Watch personnel.”
Blockade over Antar
Death Watch officials confirmed that the Krath Dynasty installed a shield blockade over the cloud cities of Antar.
Overlord Peter Max and General Phoenix Hamid have condemned the action and Max stated that it was considered an act of War by the Krath Dynasty.
Death Watch´s Nite Owls were ordered to be on high alert and ready to take action, “it saddens me that our old friends decided to side with their more powerful allies after all we did for them it seems technology is the what most matters to the Krath Dynasty, the condition they set to maintain access to our cities was clear, they wanted us to bow, they wanted to keep looking down on us, it seems that after all they don’t know us well, No Mandalorian ever Bows! And we rather have war than become slaves of the Krath!” Peter Max stated to this news agency.
According to Death Watch Senior warriors, it is likely that Overlord will call in a new crusade, the target is not confirmed but will be likely the previously mentioned Government.
The Shadow Dominion
Year 17 Day 328
The leaders of Death Watch and the Zann Consortium announced the creation of the Shadow Dominion Alliance to the Galaxy. All members of the Dominion have agreed to participate in aggressive military actions across the galaxy, overt or otherwise, promoting crime and warfare.
"Krath Dynasty has for years utilized the Death Watch to their benefit, but continue to reject us as equals,They would rather keep our people as enforcers to attack the Imperial Union and other organizations while they reap the rewards. With Zann, we do not have to deal with businessmen, politicians looking to gain a technological advantage, or anyone else. We've observed Zann simply doesn't care about such frivolous things and if they want to take something, they simply take it. From here forward, Death Watch and Zann Consortium will be taking whatever they want from whomever they please, together." Peter Max
