So admittedly you haven’t been getting up to megadeaths (so far) but do you really not see any parallels between your prior, cursed path and this one? Notably the way both of them have YOU as their main prophet?
Remember what the curse is, Mr. Nauplius: a curse of ego-- humility, stolen.
Morgana Tsukiyo convinced you she was lifting the curse because she was curious what you’d be like in bed (or wherever it was) and also what you’d do if you thought you were free of it.
Since she’s got a real and enduring love of chaos, I expect she’s pleased with her investment.
The central figure of sedevacantism is the True Emperor; I am a mere Doctor of the Faith preparing the way for his arrival. Sedevacantists who wish to reverence a living person may visit the Shrine of Our Lady of the Blessed Hips on the Jin-Mei homeworld, where they may also find the Side Chapel dedicated to the Sidekick of Our Lady of the Blessed Hips. Even so, may the True Emperor come quickly. Amen. Amarr Victor.
I will admit that you do seem to be sincere in such calls, and sincerity can be an admiral quality, however im not sure if its born out naivety or willful ignorance this case.
The Empire is perhaps the most egregious of using the “Lets work together” rational during the very cluster wide invasion that you speak of to enhance itself at the expense of the other Concord Members. While you may sincerely believe in it, your betters do not. As such, we must continue to fight the CEMWPA wars, despite any cluster wide threat.
So, just as a minor style point: When the entire document lists an ‘About the Author’ that credits one name ‘Dameon Jaeger’, it’s not really necessary to attribute all of the quotations, separately, to Dameon Jaeger. After all, the whole thing is one long Dameon Jaeger quote; he wrote it.
Also, I think pages 18 and 19 are reversed, since the ‘Overview Setup’ heading title is, well, all of page 17, but page 18 is ‘About the Author’ and then page 19 is the actual information about setting up the overview. Oh, and p12, last word of the first paragraph has a typo. So does the first word of the 2nd sentence on p10.
Some foreign students at the university have made a complaint about how I don’t accept sexual favours in return for inflated grades. Apparently this creates a “hostile teaching environment” and offends their “cultural heritage”. Made me question what other Sabik worlds universities are like if that sort of thing is considered normal.
In other words, a soft power approach to Reclaiming that you are disguising under the veneer of charitable outreach.
Who did you approach in the Federation when you conceived this initiative of yours? Did you approach capsuleer representatives of the Federation to talk about the sensitivities that you may need to consider when interfering directly in the member states? Did you approach the District Parliaments or the Member State governments, any local organisations or considering the attitude of the population itself to gauge their willingness to accept aid from Imperial-aligned organisations?
I think that any of the above was performed. And until such time as you do, these efforts will be determined to be nothing more than a sinister plot to undermine the Federation’s integrity at the level of it’s basic building blocks. Captain Dallocort is therefore absolutely correct in identifying the Empire as ‘foreign’ to the Federation, which it is, and despite the Treaty of Pachanai giving an impression of friendliness, the Empire remains ideologically it’s adversary.
This… might not be something you can trust. Not from SAYR, mind you, I’m sure their reporting is accurate. But keep in mind that the reason the attacks on the TTC structures ended isn’t because Goons are done. They made their TTC Sotiyo in Ashab their war HQ, and it got blown up. If Asher’s still dead-set on harvesting as many Highsec XL structure kills as possible, he’ll drop a faction fort in Keba, max-plate it, and giggle maniacally as hostiles attempt to attack it while he can Titan bridge from Sakht or D4KU-5 to just next door (or, more likely, he and Shines can bridge from both directions to put fighter blobs on all 3 gates into that highsec pocket).
The war forcibly ended on 6/27. That means Goonswarm can’t declare war again until 7/11. If Asher’s still looking to collect those kills, expect it to happen then, and those Sotiyos to get hit on 7/12…
… if Shines lets them live that long. INIT, Dracarys, and LAWN, as well as BL0B (who have their own reasons for hating the TTC) are still at war with the TTC. I don’t know if FRT is willing to come defend, now that the Ashab Sotiyo (a significant point of tension for Noraus) is dead.
Now, maybe the TTC has bought itself enough of a window for Asher and Shines to get distracted. Maybe Asher won’t want to put up with another highsec slog. Whether or not those Sotiyos survive will depend entirely on whether or not he’s committed to destroying them.
Either way, the TTC remains nullsec’s hand in highsec’s wallet.
