To the people of the Holy Amarr Empire, the people of the Rebel Provinces, and the capsuleer community at large:
It is my duty to report to all that the system of Helgatild fell to the combined Empyrean forces of the 24th Imperial Crusade at 11:00 NEST today, the 19th of July, YC 123. This marks the second time in history the Crusade has achieved complete dominance of the warzone, but it is the first time it does so during a time of serious potential for escalation in the conflict. Amid news that the Lords Sarum and Ardishapur are continuing a build-up of newly rebuilt military strength on the border zone, with the Matari responding in kind seemingly in preparation for major action in the contested regions, the impact of this event may have consequences for billions of people caught between our centuries-old conflict. If that is to be the case, then so be it. I pray for mercy and deliverance for all, but shall act to deny it to those deemed unworthy.
Between the days that mark the glorious foundation of our Empire and the woeful events of the Great Rebellion, as a gift to our Empress, the Great Houses granted responsibility and dominion over the conflict zone, to our Empire and our God, we pilots of the 24th Imperial Crusade offer the fruits of our labours to them, in the hopes that with this victory, however fleeting, shall come either peace or opportunity deal a truly decisive blow. However, I must also offer a word of caution on the fickle nature of this war, and the still more fickle capsuleers that fight it:
Rely not on victory or defeat when they come upon a tide ruled by the bloody whims and greed of the Empyrean rather than Frisceas. Instead, learn the ebb and flow of it, and ride the waves to your destination, unafraid to retreat with the receding water as needs dictate.
To my foes, you have fought well but it is time to rest now before you surely take up arms against us again. There is nothing else to say other than this.
