[NEWS/DISCUSSION]: Minmatar Archaeological Kerfuffle Resolved

Well! It looks like the issues around those ndokassi have been worked out!

It’s a shame about the allergy… but that might just be among that small group, who knows? And it’s nice to see that both the Brutor and the Vherokior listened to the smart people in the room, for a change.

(That’s a joke, relax. Seriously, I’m just glad everything got resolved peacefully without the need for orbital bombardments, aggressive rogue-drone malware, CONCORD quarantines, or massed Drifter attacks. It’s nice to see how civilized people behave.)

It is nice to see everything got resolved. I am not particularly sure why the Riri Clan was given relics, I feel that financial compensation would have been more appropriate, however that is a minor issue without real consequence.

I can see a few reasons for it. As the owners of the land, they’d be the only ones able to, you know, run the cultural museum for the town, which is where their relics are going. That makes a certain amount of sense, you know? ‘These are artifacts from the people who lived and worked on our township’s lands in ancient times’. It’s a way to remind the current generation of who came before, and honor their memory, in their home.

I think if I were to leave behind things that would become important historical artifacts… I’d want at least some of them to remain where I’d lived… to commemorate my having lived there… to keep me, in some sense, as a part of that place and the people who lived there.

2nd important reason: the other two groups are already opening the things up, which means taking them apart. This way, at least some of them remain intact.

Pretty much. Glad it resolved so amicably.

I for one am happy the Riri clan could act as a balancing force here. Going for financial compensation would have satisfied honor and justice, but this way of handling it allowed for a Sebiestor neutral party to handle the issue of jurisdiction. Well played by all.

Just because we are large and muscular doesn’t mean we solve everything with our fists. In fact, I remember one inter clan dispute being handled via a poetry contest.

Thats because the Republic can handle these situations like civilized people, unlike the rest of cluster it seems.

All’s well that ends well.

“In tonight’s news; the Matari culture now shows signs of being capable of conceptualizing complex abstracts like ‘sharing.’ Will the Stone Age follow?”

And we didn’t even have to unleash a killer malware virus that indiscriminately attacks implants and station systems, or nigh-unstoppable bioweapon plagues from a super-quarantined site called ‘the Pit’, like they would have done in the State!

Weeeellll not all the ndokassi have been opened and IIRC the content logs were degraded so… But let’s hope not.

Yeah, but even so, it’s not like we turn to ‘let’s throw Kyonoke around the cluster!’ as a problem-solving method. :slight_smile:
