[ARC] Triglavian Primer

Fellow Pilots

Over the last months the Arataka Research Consortium has shifted their focus heavily on the ever escalating and troubling Triglavian presence in New Eden. While regular fleets run by ARC were more hands-on and practical, several researcher and explorers are working at the scientific side of things as well.

As a working result we introduce the Triglavian Primer as a series of publications on Triglavian research topics. The first two issues are dealing with the two matters mentioned above: fleet tactics against Triglavian invasions and an overview of present major research topics.

The Triglavian Primer: Exposition of Missing Knowledge is meant to be an introduction to the current Triglavian related events with focus on what scientific challenges we face, what we know, and what we do not know. It tries to systematize knowledge we have - and lack – and is meant to inspire further research by others.

The Triglavian Primer: Empire Proving Grounds gives some insight into ARC fleet composition and tactics as well as some analysis gleaned from numerous battles on conduit and World Ark sites.

Edit: The Triglavian Primer: Yulai Triglav Conference is the third issue, providing the proceedings for the conference of the same name in December YC 121.

We are honored by the dedicated work of the first contributing authors, namely DutchGunner, Aria Jenneth, and Ilm Gaterau, who made the first issues possible. I also want to thank those who supported the effort in other ways – or are already working on the next topics.

The Triglavian Primer aims at informing those who are new to the topic but also to inspire others to join Triglavian research efforts or share already existing knowledge. For example, ARC has decided to shift the attention especially to the sun manipulations by Triglavian hands and the Stellar Accelerator in particular. This seems to be one of the most pressing issues at hand.

Please get in touch or share your thoughts if you like.

One of the most detailed and thorough analysis of any faction I’ve seen. This will be invaluable to pve theory crafters everywhere. Well done for the effort!

Thank you, pilot Sepakner. What really is striking is the fact that the Triglavians are much more inclined to communicate than, for example, the Drifters. They do it intentionally but also expose much more of their civilization and society through purposeful activities. Even though the Triglavian Primer above does try to give a broad overview I have the impression that we might have missed fundamental aspects. For example, Triglavian activities (or at least interests) in pirate or alliance controlled null security space, if there is any, is a blind spot. Also, we hear few things from those regions about how they see and deal with the Triglavian appearance. I would like to see a broader discussion emerge on this.

Sincerely,

A fascinating read.

I must agree with your assessment. So far they have proven to be much more purposeful than the Drifters, though that is likely because their goals are different. I will be interested in seeing their ultimate purpose given their stated message.

As for null security space, my own alliance Triumvirate has encountered Triglavians in small numbers, though most prominently during the mass assault several months ago. This type of tactic, a reconnaissance in force, as it is known, is a common tactic of testing defences amongst the military minded. Since then their presence has been far reduced. I suspect they are focusing their strength now that their initial test phase is complete.

What I do know, is that an enemy displaying the tactics they display and broadcasting the message they are broadcasting, is not to be ignored. Those who preach pacifism will find themselves to be prey for the wolves.

Thank you for your interest and reply. Your observations make me wonder if the Convocation of Triglav is considering the ‘Ancient Domains’ as the core empires of the New Eden cluster and not - as it is commonly heard - as the totality of the so called Known Space (the latter assumption appeals because of the radical differences between known space and abyssal deadspace). It might be a rather subtle hypothesis, but isn’t that a further hint on where the Triglavian’s ancient domains are located and that we have a common history that is more focused on “now-time” empire space than we thought? We have not heard from invasions in Jove space, but this, of course, does not mean much at all.

Following the thoughts that Ms. Jenneth offered on the concept of proving, I don’t see an obvious reason why the Triglavians should exclude the vast expanses of the outer territories from this endeavour. Surely they would not consider the capsuleer alliances unworthy adversaries.

Fellow Capsuleers

The third issue of the Triglavian Primer makes the proceedings of the recent Yulai Triglav Conference on the Triglavian challenge publicly available.

Fellow Capsuleers

We are currently preparing future releases of the Triglavian Primer tied to two projects. We could need help with some exploration and scouting in this process.

Firstly, we would like to invite capsuleers from the Amarr territory to gather specific information on Triglavian invasions in Amarr space. This is a short-term mission.

Secondly, we are looking for partners with experience in abyssal deadspace exploration. This project is scheduled for the upcoming months.

You are very welcome if you are interested in supporting our endeavours. Please send me an EVE mail if you want to get involved in some way.
