Dispatches to the Sacred Throne Order

September 29, 23,359 AD

For the attention of the Grandmaster of the Sacred Throne Order, from your obedient servant Chapter Master Gaven Lok’ri of the Excubitoris Chapter.

It is my honour to report that the move of the Excubitoris Chapter to the loyalist alliance Khimi Harar has already begun to improve the stability of the Throne Worlds. Over the last week, Khimi Harar fleets, often led by Paladin Ordinary Utari Onzo-Gallius and attended by a variety of different Paladins, including both Chapter Masters, have worked tirelessly to end the economic blockade of Amarr systems that has been ongoing since July of this year. Gantries blocking access to planets throughout the Domain and Khanid regions have been removed and replaced with upgraded Customs Offices controlled by loyalists in Khimi Harar.

The most recent development in this campaign is the restoration of access to the planets of Sarum Prime by means of a four day campaign of gunboat diplomacy which successfully pressured the as-unknown party behind the three-month long gantry blockade into upgrading the facilities and restoring access to the system. In my capacity as Co-Chapter Master of the Order I would like to especially commend the actions of Paladin Onzo-Gallius in leading forces throughout the campaign and Directrix Lunarisse Phonaga of the Societas in applying diplomatic leverage to the problem. While the party ultimately behind the blockade remains unknown, capsuleer trade has resumed in the system, we hope that this will help bolster economic growth for House Sarum.

As always, I remain the Empress on the Sacred Throne’s most obedient servant and will continue to work to build the Excubitoris Chapter into a tool for enforcing Her will.

May God always look kindly upon Amarr,
Chapter Master Gaven Lok’ri
Excubitoris Chapter of the Sacred Throne Order
Director in Khimi Harar

For the attention of the Grandmaster of the Sacred Throne Order, from your obedient servant Chapter Master Gaven Lok’ri of the Excubitoris Chapter.

I have the honour to report that the Excubitoris Chapter continues to prosper and gain effectiveness after our return to Domain. In this missive I turn to the issue of the Triglavian Occupied Territories.

I have begun an initiative investigating potential avenues for the Excubitoris Chapter to work against the horrific Triglavian invaders who have occupied six Amarr stars. The best avenue for Amarr based counter-offensives into Pochven is the Harva system, which can still be accessed by wormhole from the Kekah constellation. Of the others, Niarja and Raravoss are completely unsuitable thanks to their former geographic positions as chokepoints, while Kuhaharah has issues with some systems not being highsec. The final two, Skarkon and Krirald, were of course out of reach as both are deep in the Tribal Republic occupied Rebel Provinces. Given this, we will be considering various types of Excubitoris Chapter offensive actions into the Svarog Clade occupied systems.

Following a sentiment similar to that expressed by Lord Arim Ardishapur last year, namely that “capsuleers loyal to civilization” should “put aside petty differences of ideology in order to defend against the inhuman threat of the Triglavian monsters,” [1.] we have also been working with the EDENCOM supporting coalition Lux Invicta, which consists of loyalists from the CONCORD signatory states. Unfortunately, their last remaining foothold in the Occupied Territory is the GalFed system of Angymonne, deep in Veles occupied space. I believe that this foothold is worth defending and will continue to work to keep it intact unless ordered otherwise. As an example of its utility, on October 16th, a mixed Lux Invicta fleet deployed from Angymonne and traversed into Svarog territory, where it was able to repulse a Triglavian World Ark. More offensive actions of this nature will be needed if we wish to hurt Svarog badly enough to push them out of Amarr space.

The Excubitoris Chapter also sent three Imperial Navy Harbinger Class Battlecruisers, one Standard Harbinger Class Battlecruiser, and a Crusader class Interceptor, to the EDENCOM memorial in Yulai on the 17th. They joined a larger group of Khimi Harar ships of a similar nature in Tanoo, and then pushed through the Warzone to Yulai without incident. We made the decision to deploy active warships in combat fit, rather than fancier parade vessels, for this event to highlight our resolution that we are prepared to keep fighting for Amarrian systems for as long as it takes to liberate all of them from these invaders.

In other matters to report, our campaign against the Blood Raiders in Khanid continues, with the Arx Doriam facility continuing to draw their ire. We have also expanded anti-Blood Raider operations to Ammatar Space. We have also continued a series of heavy patrols of the Megeh constellation, working with the Emperor Family agents in the area. This has long been an important constellation for the Chapter, and we deem it important to keep threats in the region down to a minimum.

As always, we are humble slaves of the Empress and of God and beseech you to let us know if any of our actions require correction or if there are any emergent priorities upon which we need to focus.

Yours in Service to God,

Chapter Master Gaven Lok’ri

For the attention of the Grandmaster of the Sacred Throne Order, from your obedient servant Chapter Master Gaven Lok’ri of the Excubitoris Chapter.

I have the honor to report on continued Excubitoris Chapter efforts in Kador and in the Triglavian Occupied Territories. I will begin with Domain. Earlier this year a Excubitoris Chapter initiative led by Chapter Master Shaikar Kazari established the resource gathering base, Dehkan Ashanamsi, in Kador to complement our longstanding presence in the Megeh Constellation. We continue to perform periodic security work for the Emperor Family there, and have also been working to provide raw materials for the Amarr markets. There is little of note to report here other than that these operations have been able to proceed without incident.

On the subject of the Triglavian Occupied Territories, a great deal has occurred since my last missive. First, I am sad to report that the Lux citadel Smokey was finally destroyed by a series of attacks by Triglavians, Pandemic Horde, and the Amarr Militia organisation Local is Primary. This has unfortunately led to a decrease in international capsuleer cooperation against the Triglavians. Following this, the Excubitoris Chapter repurposed elements of its Mehatoor fleet and the entirety of its Khanid fleet for operations into Pochven, and established a staging citadel Arx Garum near the Harva wormhole into Triglavian Occupied Amarr territories.

LUMEN and other anti-Triglavian forces launched several raids into Pochven from Arx Garum. We are also using it to supply resistance forces in Raravoss whenever possible.

One of the Paladins of the Order, Arline Oniseki-Kley, has deployed to the surface of Raravoss III in a mission to bolster any remaining resistance and to remind the Triglavians that they are occupying sovereign Amarr territory. After an initial series of attacks, Paladin Kley has taken it upon herself to temporarily claim the title of Holder of Raravoss, as in the absence of the disgraced former Holder there is no unity of command on Raravoss. I cannot say that I entirely approve of the temerity of this claim, but I do strongly agree with Paladin Oniseki-Kley that unity of command over the remaining Faithful in Raravoss is vital and that there is need for an individual commander that is empowered with the right to summarily enslave or kill both rebels and invaders. As I see it, Paladin Kley is on the spot and doing the job, and I pray for her continued success until such a time as a more official replacement for the cowardly traitor who abandoned their holding can be found.

As always, I am the Empress’ most obedient slave and will gladly make any neccessary correction should the Chapter’s actions not be in accordance with Her will.

Yours in Service to God,

Chapter Master Gaven Lok’ri

For the attention of the Grandmaster of the Sacred Throne Order, from your obedient servant Chapter Master Shaikar Kazari of the Excubitoris Chapter.

I have the honour to report on the current readiness of Excubitoris Chapter planetary forces and recent events in the Mandate.

The Excubitoris Chapter currently has eleven legions on active duty. Each legion is accompanied by the usual range of logistics, support and training echelons to enable self-sufficiency within a theatre of operations.

Legio XI Mehatoor reports full readiness once more. XI Mehatoor bore the brunt of our campaign in support of Sarum forces on Floseswin last year. This necessitated the reconstitution of the storied solaria The Slaver Band of Mehatoor, which took near total losses during a heroic rearguard action. These losses have since been fully replenished and the action added to that unit’s long tradition. With this reconstitution, the XI Mehatoor now retakes its place amongst the Chapter forces available for immediate deployment to further objectives of the Order and Throne.

Legio III Amarr, commanded by Legate Miriam Lok’ri, also deployed to Floseswin but took fewer casualties than the XI Mehatoor. This legion is made up of fortifications specialists and has recently completed resupply after exercises in Megeh with XLII Kazari.

Legio XLII Kazari, commanded by Legate Simanu Nihriya, has not been fully committed to a theatre since Thebeka, but detachments have served alongside local forces in pirate and heretic suppression operations in Kador. The legion has recently completed integration of the latest cataphract assault ships and taken part in joint Megeh exercises with XI Mehatoor.

The Legios VIIΙ Sharhelund, IV Oris, V Dresi, VI Arzad, and VII Sahtogas are all ready to deploy. None of these units have seen a major engagement yet, but each has a core of experienced veterans. The units are made up of volunteers drawn from areas in which the Order has had significant activity and are primarily intended to operate on defensive footings. All stand ready should there be a need. Given the news from the Mandate, we have ordered all to be on standby for deployment.

Three legions are currently unavailable for deployment, having been committed elsewhere recently:

Legion XII Zakara, commanded by Legate Arrach Sarkal, has recently returned to barracks following participation in a ceremonial parade on Aphi IV. The legion as a whole has not been deployed in a combat operation since the battle of Thebeka, but elements have deployed separately. In particular, elements from 1st Classiarii and the Special Operations Group were successfully deployed around Sazdih, with others maintaining coordination with the 601st and their activities on Raravoss. The 601st is currently embedded in supporting the Raravoss operation, so while the majority of the Legion is on standby, it is being kept in reserve in support of this operation.

The XX Abath and II Myyhera have recently undertaken a three month hostile environment training exercise . Resupply is underway and the seneschals expect a return to readiness shortly. Given the conditions in the Triglavian Occupied Systems, we believe training for a wide variety of hostile and exotic climates is a high priority. Once they are back to combat effectiveness, these units will likely be earmarked for anti-Triglavian operations, unless some emergency requires their deployment in Amarr controlled space.

Finally, in response to recent reports of increasing rebellious activity within the Mandate, the Excubitoris Chapter has recently completed seeding of an intelligence network across the Mandate. Named Khamrosh after the great guardian bird of legend, this monitoring network seeks to root out and identify any external meddling in the affairs of the Empire, especially those from independent capsuleers, Republic pirates and the like.

Full activation of the network was achieved yesterday and an uplink of all gathered data is available to the Throne and the office of the Ammatar Governor.

I remain your most humble and obedient slave,
For the Empire,

Chapter Master Shaikar Kazari

For the attention of the Grandmaster of the Sacred Throne Order, from your obedient servant Chapter Master Gaven Lok’ri of the Excubitoris Chapter.

I have the honor to report on the Excubitoris Chapter response to the increased tensions concerning the fortification of the captured Stellar Transmuter in Arshat.

Following the sensationist Scope report on the fortification and research facility developed around the Arshat transmuter, there was a flurry of capsuleer activity focused on the system. On June 21st, the day of the report, myself, Chapter Master Kazari, Paladin Onzo-Gallius, Paladin deSilvestris, Paladin Kingdom, and Aspirant Llŷr deployed to the system to monitor the situation.

On that first day there were several matters of concern that I deem worthy of your attention. First, we encountered a wide variety of scouts from capsuleer organisations that are hostile to Amarr, including Electus Matari, Kybernauts Clade, and Meta-Liminal Linguistics. The Electus Matari presence was brief, and uneventful and EDENCOM forces in system successfully engaged and destroyed the Kybernauts Clade Damavik. Unfortunately, Meta-Liminal Linguistics established a satellite at the facility that I was only able to finish removing on the 23rd.

Second, the deadspace of the facility seems to be inherently unstable. Under normal conditions, the facility is in a deadspace pocket that only allows cruisers and below to access it. However, for several hours each day the facility is in open space. This represents a deeply worrying security concern for potential defenses of the site.

Third, there was a notable Blood Raider presence in the system. A Forward Operations Base was active on the 21st, right as the reports on the site broke. This facility was removed by seemingly neutral capsuleers, but the potential for future Blood Raider operations in the system is worrisome.

In the last week Chapter Master Shaikar Kazari opened an office in the system and I personally brought in sufficient hardware to handle any future Blood Raider incursions. The chapter has also been continuing to monitor capsuleer activity at the site.

After the initial flurry of activity, capsuleer presence in the system mostly died down, presumably because the Athounon crisis has continued to escalate. The most worrying visitor in the last few days was Uriel Paradisi Anteovnuecci of Arataka Research Consortium, who spent several hours at the site on the 24th. He flew a Rodiva that was equipped with an entosis link and spent a great deal of time perched on top of the Stellar Transmuter. I am unsure what he was attempting to accomplish but am doubtful that it will be beneficial to Amarr.

I plan to remain on station for some time and to support the Theology Council security patrols in the area. As always, please let me know if there are any other priorities for the Chapter’s attention.

For the attention of the Grandmaster of the Sacred Throne Order, from your obedient servant Chapter Master Shaikar Kazari of the Excubitoris Chapter.

I have the honour to report that the Excubitoris Chapter continues to thrive in Service to the Throne, and enclose herein details of our most recent activities.

To summarise in brief:

The situation in the Triglavian Occupied Territories remains volatile and is expected to remain so for the foreseeable future.

The 601st, under the command of Paladin deSilvestris, have successfully completed their mission in the Occupied Territories and have returned to Arx Garum. Further ongoing supply and reinforcement operations to the Imperial resistance on Raravoss in particular and the occupied zone in general continue, with Paladin Oniseki-Kley remaining on site.

Legion XII Zakara has rotated out of the Triglavian theatre and has moved to forward ready positions around the Nashar constellation in Domain, with supporting elements from Legios VIIΙ Sharhelund and IV Oris in close support.

In the Mandate, the Khamrosh network has concluded its deployment.

Broad-spectrum intelligent monitoring uncovered numerous small scale pirate, cult and rebel activities, though nothing beyond the usual expected scale of nefarious activity. Full details were passed on to the Mandate authorities in real time, and where possible, Chapter forces tackled these threats directly, leaving others to the authorities and independent capsuleers.

Minor damage to network infrastructure was sustained from local pirates in the Subi constellation. The damage has since been rectified and the remaining infrastructure recovered and made ready for redeployment to meet the further requirements of the Order…

Reports of larger scale rebel activity throughout the Mandate have subsided, no doubt a testament to the prompt and astute actions of the Office of the Ammatar Governor and the Ardishapur Military Circuit.

In Kador and Domain, work continues apace to strengthen and build the Chapter’s presence and further our ability to promote the interests of Imperial institutions. In the last several months, Chapter holdings have seen an uptick in usage across the board, in part a result of the strengthening of the market liquidity in the Throne Worlds.

For the attention of the Grandmaster of the Sacred Throne Order, from your obedient servant Chapter Master Shaikar Kazari of the Excubitoris Chapter.

I have the honour to report on further activities of the Excubitoris Chapter in Service to Amarr.

In Dresi, I have the privilege to announce the successful construction and transfer of Arx Azar to the care of the Chapter.
The culmination of recent efforts to build the Chapters presence in the area, this Fortizar class citadel will serve as one of the Chapter’s primary strongholds in the area; a significant advance from the now-decommissioned Arx Doriam.

The Foundation Stone of the structure is a weighty slab of granite from the Tarkmish mountains of eastern Assimia. Now resting in the main Chapel of Arx Azar, this consecrated stone, nanoscribed with the traditional Scriptural dedication verses, was the first component laid for Arx Azar, upon which the nano assembly factory for the structure rested.With the faithful support of the priests of the Cathedral of Zakara the Martyr in Dam Argat, the dedication rites and vigils have been concluded and this stronghold of the Holy Light is now fully operational and available for Service to the Throne.

On the matter of personnel, I am pleased to confirm that Praetorian Liliana Llŷr has completed the Trials and Dedications required for elevation to the rank of Paladin of the Excubitoris Chapter of the Sacred Throne Order. I have no doubt that Paladin Llŷr will continue to serve the Order and Throne with distinction.

On the development front, Chapter R&D teams have been pursuing a closer collaboration with Carthum Conglomerate research divisions of late, contributing to the successful publishing of “Crusaders On The Move: A Quantitative Report On How Tesseract Power Frequency Regulation Can Improve Interceptor Astrodynamics".
A copy has been deposited with the Imperial Chancellor Bureau in Akhragan.

In Syndicate, PIE and LUMEN forces have been engaged in a defensive campaign supporting our long term Ishukone loyal allies in I-RED. As you may recall, I-RED has often come to Amarr’s defence, both in the Battle of Thebeka and in the War in the Bleak Lands. I-RED has extensive interests in Syndicate, which have been threatened by a capsuleer invasion. So far the campaign has gone well, with multiple defensive victories against the invaders. Paladin Bukandara, in particular, has performed exceptionally in the campaign.

Meanwhile, reconnaissance and raiding operations into Triglavian space and the Occupied Territories continue unabated. The Imperial resistance on Raravoss endures, with the somewhat murky reports infighting between Perun and Svarog clades on the planet providing both new challenges and opportunities for loyalist forces.

I remain your most humble and obedient slave,
For the Empire,

For the attention of the Grandmaster of the Sacred Throne Order, from your obedient servant Chapter Master Gaven Lok’ri of the Excubitoris Chapter.

I have the honor of reporting on the continued surveillance of Arshat.

Since my last report the Excubitoris Chapter has maintained its watch on Arshat. Several events of note have occurred in that time. For a few days following July 2nd the Khanid organization Ordo Crucis Noctilucae brought a notable patrol presence to the system. On July 5th, a small number of Kybernaut Clade pilots entered the system and approached the transmuter. The pilots seemed to have positive EDENCOM standing, but they talked openly about their intent to sabotage any efforts to understand the structure. In response to this, the Chapter has moved a cruiser squadron to the site in case the Navy needs assistance. On July 10th, a Siege Green pilot named Himalayaaaaa attacked the EDENCOM forces defending the facility, Chapter forces only arrived at the scene after it was over, but the pilot has been set to an appropriate standing should they dare to return. On July 13th, a small group of GalFed nationals were discovered attempting to infiltrate the system, they were apprehended and have been sent to the MIO for processing. On August 4th, a concentration of eight Sansha facilities was discovered in the system, they were removed. Finally, on August 8th, a combined Electus Matari, Phoenix Naval Systems, and Ordo Crucis Noctilucae fleet destroyed a Triglavian Accellerator in the system. While I strongly approve of the destruction of such a facility, the presence of a former Kybernaut and a Sansha Loyalist in this fleet raises some concern, as does the presence of Republic loyalists in Arshat.

Arshat has also served as a minor base of operation for anti-Triglavian activity in the last month. On July 7th, a minor raid into the Triglavian Occupied Systems disrupted Kybernaut mining and salvage operations in Nani and Raravoss. Raids into the Abyss to disrupt Triglavian mining operations occurred from the system on July 7th, July 26th, and August 8th.

The recent mining operation also resulted in a major influx of traffic to the system. None of the visitors seem to be a threat, but it does make monitoring the system more difficult. In support of the mining operations, on August 4th, Chapter Master Kazari and myself provided security for House Varaz and Kazari Holding mining operations in support of the Imperial War Reserves. Earlier in the day, I also provided security for Lady Shirin Varaz and Aspirant Takahashi on mining operations throughout the Nashar constellation.

As is probably clear from the relatively minor events relayed in this report, we are not looking at serious threats in Arshat at this time, but rather the more mundane day to day activities of any high security system. We hope that this will continue, but stand vigilant against any further developments.

In service to God and the Empress Catiz,
Chapter Master Gaven Lok’ri
