A sixth system has fallen to the Triglavian Collective, and questions and anxieties obviously abound concerning the claiming of a system by an invading precursor civilization. However, some factors might allow for some postulating about what might happen next, as out of all the systems taken thus far, only one other has belonged to the Amarr - and of all these systems, this first Amarr system has seen consequences not reflected in any other, alongside a clue that might lead to important information concerning the “why” of this seeming anomaly.
The systems that have processed to Final Liminality follow, alongside their consequences:
::ARVASARAS - Caldari Space::
No news from this system yet, as it is the second-last system to process - but given its similar populated temperate planets and stations, it would be quaint for developing events to diverge in nature from the happenings in the following same-nature systems.
Communications remain up
::NALVULA - Caldari Space::
An industrial system. Forces on the ground are attacking Triglavian forces on-sight, and Triglavian ground assault forces have been rumored. The target of the Triglavian planetary assaults here are industrial, resource-gathering targets.
Communications remain up
::SAKENTA - Caldari Space::
On the two industrial worlds, Triglavian assaults are focusing on seizing mining, reprocessing, and manufacturing facilities. On the two populated worlds, however, planetside Triglavian forces are responding to force with only small escalations in counter-force - and what are obviously Triglavian-aligned Rogue Drones, perhaps under the influence or direction of Navka, are conducting surveys.
Communications remain up.
::VALE - Gallente Space::
Despite having landed on the many populated worlds of Vale, Triglavian forces have kept their distance and have not interfered with civilian populations. Aggression has been met with striking-down, noted in the case of an orbital strike on a facility that shot at overflying Triglavian vessels, but no unprovoked actions have been taken.
And despite civil worries in the face of the reduced solar output,
Communications remain up.
::RARAVOSS - Amarr Space::
Following the first procession of a system to Final Liminality, Triglavian forces moved to presumably take claim the many industrial settlements of the system, as they are attempting elsewhere now. The port on planet III was heard to have been neutralized before Triglavian forces landed - and then, nothing.
Communications from all settlements ceased within the day.
Planets I, II, III, IV, VIII, and IX all held industrially focused settlements; all fell silent, unlike all other examples of Triglavian industrial assaults in all systems since then. Arkombine and Mordus Legion forces have been reported to be active in the system, with Upwell wholly nonforthcoming concerning their purposes there.
Something very different has happened in this single Amarr system.
A mystery begins to present itself with reports of “Qilfim Ur-Sarum, Holder of Raravoss, Reportedly Seeking Asylum in Federation”. In response to inquiries, however, House Sarum has responded that “There is no such person”, a statement that can only be interpreted as Qilfim Ur-Sarum having had his name struck from the Book of Records - a punishment reserved for profound betrayals of the Amarr and their faith.
The holder escapes to the Gallente, after his system falls and communications are lost with every settlement in Raravoss, and he has been struck from the book. What happened?
The obviously countless numbers of enslaved human beings put to work in these Amarr industrial facilities having risen up and taken control in the wake of Liminal Procession is the most hopeful hypothesis - but in such a case, what would the view of the Triglav on this presence be? So many questions to answer.
::HARVA - Amarr Space::
Alongside the industrial facilities present among its many uninhabitable worlds, there is a new factor present in Harva: a single, largely populated temperate planet - an Amarr civilian world. Unlike the populated worlds in the space of the other Empires, the population here holds yet another obvious factor as well, something that would not be found on the populated worlds of the Gallente and Caldari.: a large enslaved population
Many solemnly await news of the events about to transpire planetside in Harva; but whatever happens here may cast some light on the true aims and views of the Triglav.
There is one person who might be able to independently reveal more information, however:
Ex-Holder of Raravoss, Qilfim Ur-Sarum.
Despite my obvious reservations in regards to slavery, I do not desire to see any known empire be overtaken by the unknown threat of a profoundly technologically sophisticated precursor civilization. To know an unknown, we need to discover the facts: perhaps if by some divine contrivance a certain Gallente news agency (through a certain intrepid reporter) were to find and interview a man who has reportedly made a claim for asylum in Gallente space, we might learn something more of the intentions of the Triglav without having to wait and see what happens in Harva.
Regardless of any actions taken, events march onward.
I’d much rather walk forward in dim light than in complete darkness, personally.
