NOTICE: tl;dr: Contract Corrupted Trinary Relics to the Arataka Research Consortium Holdings corporation, receive bacon, or ISK to the level of the current bounty. Contracts are requested in Jita or Amarr to simplify logistics.
NOTICE: current bounty level 5m ISK per sample. Bounty payouts will cease at 0200hrs 5th October.
NOTICE: a list of donors has been appended to this post. ARC would like to extend its deepest thanks to those pilots who assist in defraying the expense of this project!
Unknown parties raided a vast network of previously undetected Sleeper or Drifter Enclaves in known space today. As we attempt to learn more about the raids, the presence of Sleepers in known space outside the Ani constellation, and the material that is being recovered from these enclaves, the Arataka Research Consortium calls for able pilots to assist in an effort to composite and decrypt the data being recovered.
To this end, we must request then that pilots ignore the offer by the Quartermaster, an unknown party operating under alias, and instead provide any recovered corrupted trinary relics to ARC. We are currently offering 20m ISK per sample of data, though as the situation evolves we reserve the right to adjust our bounty.
While we respect the tenacity and drive of the Valkyrie that the Quartermaster is reported to be associated with, their secrecy and unproven research capability leads us to believe that providing the Valkyrie or the Quartermaster with newly recovered and possibly irreplaceable Sleeper or Drifter data may be doing a grave disservice to New Eden.
As the Arataka Research Consortium remains committed to transparent and multilateral research ventures, we ask that all pilots aid us as they are able, and profit by our shared mission.
