[LUMEN] Ammatar Mandate Revitalization Project / Welcome to Lord Ardishapur

Khimi Harar would like to extend its welcome to the Order of St. Tetrimon Special Forces who have brought the Ardishapur Demesne’s latest guest, Khanid Warlord Alar Chakaid, to their Chapterhouse Complex.

In keeping with our alliance’s commitment to the development and security of the Ammatar Mandate and the goals of Lord Arim Ardishapur and Lord Governor Ekroz Salaf, we have mobilized to eliminate Blood Raider Forward Operating Bases in the Derelik Region within ten jumps of Tanoo whose occupants might attempt to interfere with the dispensation of justice. Thankfully, due to the expansion of the capsuleer population in the area during the redevelopment project, Blood Raider Forward Operating Bases in Gamis and Ihal were removed by the local residents in a spate of patriotic fervor (and self-interest).

In light of an innuendo by a notorious Sani Sabik, we have anchored a monitoring facility in low orbit around Tanoo II to screen for unwanted ‘packages’ being sent into the gravity well.

We continue to garrison the Mandate and other locales in the Ardishapur Military Circuit in response to Triglavian attacks fighting in cooperation with the EDENCOM Defense Initiative and many other capsuleers who are united against the Triglavian menace and will rise to challenges of defense as is necessary to ensure that the Circuit remains ”a beacon of faith, order and stability within the Empire.”

If you wanted to get my attention, sister, you need only have asked.

Of course, you might not like the sort of attention this gets you.

I commend the continued efforts of Khimi Harar to safeguard the noble House of Ardishapur’s domains and aid the Ammatar Mandate’s rise from the ashes of continued Matari aggression.

video feed excerpt

A crowd is gathered together in a Chapel in the Tebu Ankhiman fortizar in Tanoo. A long-haired blond woman is speaking, as a priest is packing away his liturgical materials from a service that apparently just concluded, “…few days ago, as the Triglavian invasion of Skarkon began, Tebu Anhhiman was hit by a large Blood Raider strike force consisting of various elements from battleships down to frigates. From the timing, one assumes the attackers perhaps were taking advantage of the attention of LUMEN combat pilots focused on an EDI deployment in progress being split in order to achieve some objective in the Tanoo system, perhaps one associated a certain guest on Tanoo II. However, those Khimi Harar capsuleers and baseliners in the system, in particular fighter pilots, performed a rearguard action, successfully getting the shields to repair before being depleted and the structure forced in armor mode. We are here today to honor the memory. of those who fell.”

She continues, her slender form turning to light a fire in a brazier in a niche by the altar, her voice calm and soft:

“They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted.
They fell with their faces to the foe.”

She continues to speak, the flames flickering against her face

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.
They mingle not with their serving comrades again.
They kneel no more at familiar altars of home.
They have no lot in our toil of the day-time.
They sleep beyond Athra’s home.”

She pauses again, her eyes a little red, and the prayer continues

“But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known,
As the stars are known to the Night.
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain,
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.”

“So we say we all.” She concludes, as the video feed excerpt cuts out.

With the passing of another Crimson Harvest, a difficult period for the Mandate Project has come to a close.

Apparently seeking to kidnap (or perhaps rescue, depending who you ask), Lord Alar Chakaid, capsuleer Blood Raiders and Triglavian Sympathizers, heretics and their hirelings descended on the Tanoo system, while Blood Raiders themselves assaulted the wider Mandate and its capital system Tanoo, specifically.

The Blood Raider assault on Tanoo II was repulsed. Attempts by S. V. (FN. Her full name was stricken from the Book of Records), a capsuleer Blood Raider and Triglavian Sympathizer, and her hirelings to remove Khimi Harar from interfering with her efforts were unsuccessful. In that regard, thanks are given to Khimi Harar’s allies from the State and EDENCOM Common Defense Initiative, I-Red, PNS, and NADSC, who assisted in foiling the scheme of the Blood Raider/Triglavian Sympathizer and eliminating her base of operations - consistent with the directive of the Inner Circle to SARO to “hunt down Triglavian agents, supporters and infiltrators across all member states.” Thereafter, Khimi Harar focused on removing Crimson Harvest sites in Derelik, Devoid and the Bleak Lands, as well as supporting the Shining Flame as best able.

In the aftermath a Bhaalghorn was turned over by S.V. to LUMEN. Rather than risk a ‘trojan horse’ or other contamination by this vessel, it will be broken down and its proceeds set aside and donated to the next Plex for Good campaign.

Esteemed capsuleers and potential business associates:

It is my honor to announce the newest addition to the Khimi Harar Tanoo II orbital campus, and my organization’s new headquarters outside the Khanid region: Riamkhan Olemth Vashaifit.

  • What the structure offers:
    The Riamkhan Olemth Vashaifit Azbel offers a suite of services geared toward the industrious- research, invention, and manufacturing. The limitation of services offered is dictated by system security regulation (ie: no capital-class vessel construction). These are services which were formerly offered at the Tebu Amkhiman Fortizar, and now present greater time and material efficiencies for various jobs.

  • What this means for our patrons:
    For those currently utilizing industrial services within LUMEN structures, be advised: INDUSTRIAL SERVICES AT THE FORTIZAR WILL BE TAKEN OFFLINE WITHIN APPROXIMATELY THE NEXT 30 DAYS, UNLESS OTHERWISE PETITIONED DIRECTLY TO SFRIM ADMINISTRATION. Once service modules are disabled, all running jobs will lose progress and materials.
    It is further advised: ANY NEW RESEARCH, INVENTION, OR MANUFACTURING JOBS YOU INTEND TO LAUNCH, PLEASE DO SO AT THE AZBEL.

  • What the future holds:
    As service utilization increases and manufacturing trends are identified, opportunities may arise for facility upgrades and recalibration. Special commemoration of structure locations or subfacilities will be made to contributors in such pursuits.

Thank you for your attention. We look forward to what the future may hold with this new landmark of the Ammatar Mandate Revitalization Project materialized.

Blessings and prosperity,

As a note, the transition of services outlined above was successfully completed.
If patrons want to negotiate access to ‘blue rates’ do not hesitate to contact me.

In furtherance of the development of the mandate, we have made two adjustments to our project in the Derelik region. First, we have acquired a refinery and turned it into a freeport refinery in the Gamis system - Tet Hedu Fara Igalu which means “The Divine House of the Fruits of the Mountain”. Second, in light of the extensive capsuleer markets now flourishing in the region, we have discontinued our market and will be focusing market efforts in Devoid, which I suppose is another thread eventually! Other existing production infrastructure will remain in place to continue the development of the Mandate.

Khimi Harar welcomes Her Most Sublime and Imperial Majesty Empress Catiz I and Lord Ardishapur to the Mandate and wishes them a blessed and prosperous visit to Tanoo II.

For those who may wish to make a pilgrimage to view the Empress’s personal honor guard fleet orbiting off Tanoo II, rates will be lowered at LUMEN’s freeport, Tebu Ankhiman for offices and use of clone bays during the duration of the visit.

On April 27th, after the departure of the Empress’s personal honor guard fleet, Tanoo II was assaulted by three Naglfar-class dreadnoughts supported by a large subcapital fleet identifying as belonging to the Brutor Vanguard. LUMEN personnel rapidly formed a battleship fleet with logistics and armor cruiser support to engage the Dreadnoughts that were flagged suspect by CONCORD and Ammatar Navy security forces.

After ensuring the destruction of the dreadnoughts and neutralizing the capital threat to the planet of Tanoo II with other loyalists, the LUMEN fleet engaged in search and destroy operations to eliminate the remaining hostile subcapital fleet in conjunction with Ammatar Navy forces.

LUMEN has long been invested in the safety and growth of the Mandate. We urge restraint, but also continued vigilance against those who would do harm to the Faithful in our home worlds. At this time LUMEN has initiated transport of relief supplies to Tanoo II in support of planetary authorities, but also fully intend to seek out those responsible for this affront to determine their methods for circumventing the Mandate’s defenses and prevent another such incident.
