As a great thinker once said “Everybody lies.” If there is one thing I’ve learned is that capsuleers lie a lot, and thus I’m always at least a little suspicious of what everyone says. It’s not a fun way to lead a life, of course.
Between this, recruiting Vlad Cetes, and the previous recruiting of edeity and his Battlemonks, I think it’s pretty fully established now that Aegis Militia, once a highly-reputed Amarrian loyalist organization, has been thoroughly and decisively run into the dirt.
I expect AM to be marked -10 by every legitimate loyalist organization. Those who have chosen membership in it have denied all claims to faith and honor. You have damned yourselves.
This is assuming loyalist organizations have a conscience and strive for any kind of good. Considering just about all of them are actively taking part in the slaughter and continued enslavement of my people, I really think you are setting the bar rather high here. Their response to every slave crises speaks of a people with whom Kithrus fits in quite nicely. He just happens to be less subtle about it.
And on that note, I’m not even remotely surprised to read this. Kithrus had been of great assistance to me at Kahah, but it’s also clear that this man prizes his political standing far above “doing the right thing”.
How you can obsess so much over something and still muck it up so badly is something he will have to explain to me sometime.
KITHRUS YOU FETCHING ROTHEAP
YOU FILTHY, BUBBLING GOATPAT
You’ve done this to yourself, the Empire, and the Kingdom. You cannot soil yourself because you are MADE of what people soil themselves with, but you have surely let filth run down you to pool on everyone you knew and the entirety of the Kingdom.
Watch everyone say they expected this from Khanid. Watch. Know it is your fault.
I expected this from Khanid.
Don’t worry. I expect it from every Amarr.
Ya, I kinda expected this from the Khanid.
Yea, like the drunken Phoenix, Aegis Militia staggers forth from the ashes of its slumber, vomits upon itself and sets its nest alight.
I’ll say. Overlooking the Sansha factor entirely, for obvious reasons, it’s still just about the worst recruitment pitch ever. If you want a bunch of competent pilots to pad your roster, you’d better have a harder and more attractive pitch than “well, uh, if you work for us we won’t judge you despite being obviously morally inferior.”
I’ll admit, I didn’t. I’m not amazingly surprised, but I didn’t expect it. I’d have figured recruiting more Blooders.
And even that, I’d only really expected from Khanid’s direct lapdogs… but I suppose Lord Crases is bucking for a promotion.
Kithrus that is not how you awaken the Aegis Militia.
Seeking heathens and heretics to fight the monsters hiding under your bed will only yield more of what we Khanid disapprove. Don’t sully the Aegis Militia name with the recruitment of heathens and heretics…
Bit late. This name isn’t getting out of the mud unscathed.
It was already dragged through the mud with its association with the Battlemonks, and now this if true just solidifies that fall from grace.
I’ll reserve any foaming at the mouth however till I hear from the accused himself. Kithrus, did you or did you not pitch this?
It has been confirmed by him in The Summit.
Read the provided logs.
Also, they recruited Vlad.
I’ll once again say I’d like to hear it directly from him here. I’m not in my pod, so I can’t verify said logs. Additionally, as much as many folks with hard won reputations as honest operators might verify this my question was addressed to him, and him alone, and I’d like it answered by him rather than multiple people pointlessly parroting the same thing.
It’s more than just verification you can get from getting a dollard to openly admit to his foolishness.
Said logs are extremely entertaining though.
She’s not wrong about that, Utari.
