In accordance with the command issued by the Holy Throne of Amarr:
Loyal and Faithful Peoples of Dam-Amarr, Honorable Allies of the Caldari State, and Welcomed Guests,
We of the Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris formally announce our intent to host festivities to commemorate the First Jubilee of the Coronation of Her Most Sublime and Imperial Majesty Catiz I, First Apostle of the True Faith and Sovereign Defender of the Imperial Rite, long may she reign.
Beginning today, Monday September the 25th, 23,355 AD (119 YC), the Praetoria will commence hosting faithful pilgrims that plan to attend Jubilee Week within its facilities upon the Emperor Family Academy station in orbit over Oris, free of charge. Included will be food, lodging, complimentary shuttle service to and from Amarr Prime, and security provided by the Praetorian Kameira Honor Guard, in conjunction with Imperial and local security forces as appropriate. Applications and security clearances have been processed and quarters allotted on a first-come, first serve basis, regardless of class, background and nationality.
On Wednesday the 27th, the most blessed anniversary of Empress Catiz I’s ascension to Throne of Holy Amarr, the Praetoria will host a public ceremony for the Renewal of Vows of Obedience to Her Majesty. Loyal capsuleers will be encouraged to renew their vows publicly on an Intergalactic Summit thread dedicated to the act, which we shall create on the day of.
Update: In light of the recent announcement, we will also hold attendance at Cardinal Sourem Itharen’s speech in Amarr at 20:00. A fleet will form and fly in formation outside the Emperor Family Academy. Same requests and rules as the Saturday parade shall apply. See below for details.
On Saturday the 30th, we would like to extend an invitation to all capsuleers who declare loyalty to the Amarr Empire, Khanid Kingdom, Ammatar Mandate, and Caldari State to join us in a military procession honoring our Empress. Other guests will be accepted at Praetorian discretion. We ask that those intending to join us make a public request on this thread and we will grant approval or denial privately in a timely manner.
Form-up will commence in the Amarr system on September 30th, a half-hour before the intended time of the procession, which is set to be 22:00 New Eden Standard Time. Thus, the fleet will be beginning formation at 21:30 NEST.
Preferred ships will be battleships of Amarr design, or any Amarr ship bearing Imperial Jubilee colors. We demand that heretical (Equilibrium of Mankind and Blood Raider, specifically) ships and colors not be displayed. Non-compliance may result in exclusion from the fleet, standings adjustments, and/or destruction of the offending ship. This is a formal and important occasion, and all fleet members will be expected to abide by suitable decorum and discipline while accompanying the Praetoria. Any who are considered to be breaking decorum or fleet discipline will be removed. We thank you for your consideration and cooperation.
Update Unfortunately, due to a declaration of war leveled by the notorious criminal alliance known as P I R A T upon both PIE and SFRIM, the Saturday fleet is hereby canceled.
At the closing of the week, on Sunday, October 1st, we shall co-host the first Jubilee Ball with the Societas Imperialis Sceptri Coronaeque within the Dolvan Hetrelad Ball Room located upon the Emperor Family Academy station. A final night of revelry and merriment shall mark the end of the festival, and the beginning of another year of the reign of Catiz I, blessed be her name. Details will be announced at a time closer to the event.
We pray that Jubilee Week shall herald a long and felicitous reign for our most Blessed Sovereign, and an era of strength and prosperity for the Empire itself. We welcome those who wish to celebrate with us with open arms, and hope it will usher in a clime of further cooperation and fellowship between the Empire, her loyalist capsuleers, and those who offer their friendship freely to both. Benedictions to the faithful and their allies.
