GAGANA ANNOUNCE RESCUE BUYOUT, NAKRI NOBLE FAMILY RELEASE STATEMENT

Troubled Private Military Contractor, Gagana Defence Solutions announced today that it received this week an offer to buy the company in its entirety, saving it from liquidation. Gagana’s Board of Directors confirmed that the offer had been accepted and that, effective immediately, the company was now an asset of the deSilvestris Family. Accompanying the Gagana spokespeople at the announcement was the Head of deSilvestris Family, Lord Vladimir deSIlvestris, who said that the offer had been made “in recognition of the valuable contribution” on the part of Gagana toward the defence of the Empire, as well as the “economy of our home in Nakri”, being an important employer of “military skill, knowledge, and expertise”.

Asked if the structure of Gagana would be significantly affected, Lord deSilvestris replied, “the necessity of some form of restructuring of the company is appreciated by everyone involved”, but that whilst "a possible rebranding is being considered, there is no reason to make any drastic changes in the make up of the company. " Lord deSilvestris acknowledged the experience of the member of the Board of Directors, stating that, “where possible, we would like to keep that valuable knowledge going forward.”

Lord deSilvestris was also asked to comment on the ongoing smear campaign against his family, but would say only that “the matter is being dealt with by the appropriate authorities, with whom we will co-operate and assist fully.” Pressed on whether he felt that the presence of agents and operatives from Sarum Police and the Ministry of Internal Order may damage the reputation of his family, Nakri nobility, or the system in general, Lord deSilvestris commented that he felt the arrival of those parties “to be an honour for all loyal, faithful, and right-minded subjects of Her Imperial Majesty. It shows that we humble servants here in Nakri are worthy of the care and attention of the finest, most diligent agents of both Her Majesty, and our Lord Sarum. We could not be in safer hands.” Lord deSilvestris declined to comment further on the matter, stating that he felt it “more appropriate to await certain outcomes”.

Memorial to the YC122 Triglavian Invasions Unveiled in Rhamnus – Commonwealth and District officials in attendance.

Commonwealth Broadcasting Corporation – 14th March YC123 (State-broadcaster for the Northern Colonial Commonwealth)

A memorial to the Triglavian Invasions in YC122 has been officially unveiled by First Minister Adelynne de Maizière at the Interstellar War Memorial Park within the City of Rhamnus.

The memorial, funded by a mixture of public and private donations, is dedicated to those in Federal and District Service that perished throughout the Crisis as well as those currently lost in the Pochven region. Conceived through a collaborative effort by District artisans, including Colelie Memorial designer Charles Cambridge Schmidt, the memorial itself is constructed out of marble sourced from quarries near Hekelentia.

Composed of five columns arranged in a semi-circular fashion on a hill, it is a simplistic design that reflects the sombre atmosphere of the dedication. The central column has a bust of the EDENCOM Radiant Star Emblem at it is top, with the Federation Eagle engraved into the body.

The names of all twenty-seven systems that fell to the Triglavian Collective are engraved into the smaller marble columns with gemstones corresponding to each nation: Emerald for the Federation, Ruby for the Republic, Sapphire for the Caldari State and Topaz for the Empire.

The central column is inscribed as follows:

The Triglavian War YC122

To the immortal memory of all those that gave their lives in service to the Commonwealth, the Federation and in protection of our lives, liberties, and freedom. Their sacrifice illuminated the encroaching darkness threatening to engulf us and ensured that we saw the dawn of tomorrow.

Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit

Liberté, égalité, fraternité’

It has been confirmed by our liaison with the Commonwealth Armed Forces that a detachment of the Commonwealth High Guard will be present at the memorial in perpetuity for ceremonial purposes, as is the case with the nearby Interstellar War memorial.

Amongst the crowd of dignitaries from the Commonwealth and District Parliament, former EDENCOM Defence Initiative official Commander Edward Adams was present, accompanied by an Imperial representative from the Sarum Circuit, Lady Ekaterina deSilvestris of Nakri. Commander Adams laid a wreathe at all five columns, and upon laying the final wreathe at the central column, he fell to his knees in silent genuflection where he remained for several minutes.

The Commander departed shortly afterwards with Lady deSilvestris, after the latter paid her respects. Commander Adams had been intimately involved with EDENCOM defensive operations, including the disaster in Vale and in several failed defensive operations in the Caldari State. Although his efforts and those of other EDENCOM-allied parties fought bravely and courageously, it is clear from the opinion of this agency that the defeats inflicted upon the civilisations of New Eden weigh heavily on the man.

Not all in the Commonwealth are pleased with the memorial. A protest that was planned against the commemoration of State and Imperial systems by Commonwealth and Republican citizens caused some concern amongst Constabulary senior officers, and as a result security was intensified before the event. The protest did not materialise to the extent that was predicted, although some instances of violence between pro and anti-memorial citizens were quelled swiftly.

NAKRI V - MOON 5 - SARUM FAMILY ASSEMBLY PLANT, DOMAIN

Two Planetary Vehicles and multiple units of Robotics were destroyed today in rioting incited by virulent propaganda posters connected to the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist. According to witnesses, a group of laborers spilled out of a vodka bar on the Sarum Family Assembly Plant in Nakri system, passing by a warhouse formerly owned by Gagana Defence Solutions but recently acquired by House deSilvestris. Upon seeing the posters, the laborers became agitated and smashed their way into the warehouse, vandalizing the vehicles and robotics inside.

Although the posters in question have been removed by authorities, witnesses described a layout of two adjacent panels. On the left panel was prominently featured the word “Nyet” under which was depicted a half-Minmatar child imperiously giving orders to a haggard group of laborers in House deSilvestris workers’ uniforms while the child’s parents, Lord Alexandr deSilvestris and his Thukker bride, look on approvingly. On the right panel was seen under the word “Da” the so-called “True Emperor” of sedevacantist theology leading a now happy and well-fed group of laborers to a brighter feature, the prominent members of House deSilvestris chained at his feet.

Local authorities suggest that due to the ongoing crackdown on sedevacantist activities in Nakri, the poster placement was propably an inside job, perhaps perpetrated by former Gagana Defence Solutions employees who have no particular experience with or affection for their new masters, House deSilvestris, and instead were swayed by previous sedevacantist poster campaigns targeting Lord Alexandr deSilvestris’s marriage. According to religious scholar Julien Antoine of the University of Caille, propaganda posters and propaganda generally have a long history within Nakri culture, and the people of that system are perhaps more likely to respond to a poster campaign than Amarrians elsewhere. Reached for comment, the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist called the riot a “righteous response by workers who have come to know the truth of the degeneracy among their rulers, degeneracy that were the Throne not Vacant would be utterly suppressed by the Emperor, but which in this age of a Vacant Throne is allowed to spread unchecked.”

DEFAMATORY POSTER INCITES REACTION AGAINST “POISONOUS TREASON”.

An incident earlier today on the Sarum Family Station orbiting Nakri V resulted in minor damage and a number of arrests. Station security were called to a spontaneous disturbance by concerned locals when a small group of labourers, after enjoying recreational activities following a day of honest work, were incensed by a poster insulting and defaming a widely respected local noble family. Security Chief Sokolov released a statement regarding the incident, in which he clarified that following arrest and questioning, the labourers had admitted that “insulting caricatures of a scion of the family in question” had been the cause of the workers’ sudden ire, but further to this, a “treasonous and outrageous insult to the Holy Throne and Her Imperial Majesty Herself” had “tipped them beyond their normally rational judgement into unthinking anger”.

Asked what the insult was, Chief Sokolov relucantly presented what remained of the poster, the majority of which had been destroyed by the men. Clearly seen, however, was a rendering of the Blessed Throne of Amarr, in which was sat a likeness of the nefarious capsuleer and known seditionist heretic Nauplius, with the legend “True Emperor” and the word “Da!”. The image immediately caused shock and outrage, prompting Chief Sokolov to call for calm, and to reassure that the poster in his possession is “the only known example at this time, though we must remain vigilant for others”. Chief Sokolov also urged for all “faithful and loyal subjects of Her Imperial Majesty” to report “any and all suspicious activity directed against the people of Nakri”, stating that “malicious outside forces are attempting to divide and subvert our society with their poisonous treason, which has stood for countless years as an exemplar of devotion to the Rightful, Divinely Ordained Institutions of our Empire”.

This publication agrees with Chief Sokolov and all right-minded Nakriians at all levels of society - we must stand together against yet another hated outside invader, and like so many times before, we shall prevail.

Airko-Tensei Group Reports on Health of Those Affected by Torrinos V, Moon V Quarantine


Scientists and aid workers associated with the Airko-Tensei Group have published an initial memo this afternoon on the wellbeing of State citizens trapped in the Torrinos V quarantine zone. Defying Caldari Navy quarantine measures Airko-Tensei deployed their own specialists to evaluate those effected by the outbreak and to evacuate corporate assets.

According to the memo, those screened have been observed to carry unidentified mRNA protein sequences with an indeterminate effect but are “otherwise asymptomatic.” This evidence seems to further refute claims within the State alleging a new strain of biological threat related to the cluster-wide novel coronavirus outbreak.

P-VYVL VII - GURISTAS ASSEMBLY PLANT, VENAL

The Venal branch of the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist has responded to the publication of the risqué Venal Prosperity Network (VPN) magazine Bad Bunny with a prurient issue of its own, Slave Girls of the New Reclaiming. Although mimicking the VPN publication in style, typeface, cover, layout and other superficial qualities, any Guristas pirate perusing the sedevacantist publication would find quite different content inside. First, all the models in Slave Girls of the New Reclaiming are Minmatar, slaves living in de facto sedevacantist leader Nauplius’s “colony” in his Mehatoor hanger, although in a concession to Brutor representation among Guristas leadership, the blood line of the slaves is only vaguely described as “the slave people” and Brutor slaves are omitted entirely. Second, while Bad Bunny contained a photo shoot with Guristas loyalist capsuleer @Avio_Yaken, the sedevacantist magazine features only women, in keeping with Sedevacantist Church theology that being mistresses to the Chosen is one of the three legitimate purposes of the Minmatar, while for an Amarrian woman’s womb to be defiled by the seed of a Minmatar is the most horrific sin.

Finally, all the models in Slave Girls of the New Reclaiming are depicted in servile poses, washing floors and bringing food and otherwise being in subjugation and submission to the sedevacantist faithful. All of the slaves are visibly chained and collared, injections of slaves with oversized syringes of Vitoc abound, and whips are not absent. Interspersed with the photographs are articles on sedevacantist theology, including the fact that the models in the magazine’s pages are available as “holo-mistresses” for the most faithful of sedevacantists at church sites equipped with holo-emitters. None of the outfits or poses in Slave Girls of the New Reclaiming would be legal in Amarrian space, nor would the magazine itself.

Reached for comment on its Venal branch’s release of a magazine at variance with typically understood Amarrian values, Sedevacantist Church spokesperson Calyce Io responded that in sedevacantist theology, as a result of their rebellion against the Empire, the Minmatar have forfeited all their rights, including the right to clothing. An exposed Minmatar, she continued, is no more lewd than exposed livestock. The Theology Council and other Amarrian authorities declined to comment on the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist’s latest recruiting effort.

SKY CROWN MARINA: GAROUN INVESTMENT BANK ANNEX NORTH TOWER
NEW HUEROMONT

Arrondissement urges reconciliation with substance abusers.

Patient advocates, health care workers, and municipal officials objected to characterizations of substance abuse victims following events atop Garoun Investment Bank’s latest addition to the city skyline.

Dr. Franceleuse Utremont, Medical Director for New Hueromont Metropolitan Interagency Health Operations, acknowledged the threat criminal organizations pose to public order. “However,” he insisted, “characterizing victims of those enterprises contemptuously exacerbates the problem. Rather than shaming individuals into avoiding self-destructive behavior, social hostility only strengthens the desire to retreat deeper into addiction. Corrupt organizations prey on that alienation. We should not make their jobs easier.”

Haitha Falx, Chief Attorney with the non-governmental Criminal Health Intersection Initiative, concurred. “Addicts turn to substance abuse to escape forces assaulting their existence,” she said. “Removing antagonism allows us to better reintegrate them into society. This is not unrestrained altruism. Law enforcement and incarceration infrastructures consume an order of magnitude more resources than treatment and assisted release. Other metropolitan services, such as New Hueromont’s chronically underfunded transportation networks, benefit from a reallocation of funds. Meanwhile, judicial, police, and containment agencies are better able to concentrate on direct threats to public safety.”

Reached for comment, Tanagura Amoii, proprietor of the host club at the center of events which led to broadcasts of hostile commentary, released the following statement:

“Jin-Mei society looks on substance abuse with profound disapproval. Addicts deprive communities not only of their own contributions, but by drawing friends and relatives into supporting them, diminish the contributions of others. Narcotics trafficking is a capital offense in Lirsautton; and consumers of narcotics are seen as supporters of that industry, not victims.

“However, while attitudes in Lirsautton will not change quickly, even if there is economic merit to alternatives, we must acknowledge that New (or Nouvelle) Hueromont is on Luminaire. One Wing Angels Host Club will endeavor to meet the high standards established by the city. We are negotiating to sublet space on the 350th and 349th floors. Medical professionals have been contacted to design safe treatment environments for that space. We will make the facilities available to municipal agencies without charge.”

“This welcome development will highlight benefits of working with victims of criminal syndicates and not against them,” said Mlle. Falx. “Trends in New Hueromont are encouraging. However, success attracts - and recent arrivals are at high risk of succumbing to anxieties which the parasitic syndicates feed on. We must remain vigilant against the reflex to punish those who are already powerless. ‘Punching down’ is always an ignoble enterprise.”

In a lighter development, supermarket chain Yaoh-Mei have released a new candy in partnership with the host club. Called “Cinnamon Sabiques,” the sweets consist of a thin outer shell surrounding a jelly interior. “On the one hand, these are a joke at our expense,” said Vivienne Eautaine, president of the Ma Belle Cramoisie player’s association. “That said, I’ve already gone through five boxes. More stairs for me!”

A Yaoh-Mei spokesman insists the candies are specifically designed to not damage “sensitive teeth.”

System Monitors and Contractor Security on High Alert With Arrival of FIO Taskforce in Pegeler Constellation
Eugales - Tensions are high today in the greater Pegeler district, as after days watching smaller task groups filter into the Unorganized system of Eugales, more robust units have been sighted making their way to port at the Federal Defense Union and FedMart Retail stations in system.

Even with their stated mandate to "Counter Subversion and Terrorism,” many are on edge due to the broad coverage such a mandate has, and many smaller independent communities have expressed displeasure at this deployment due to the potential for abuses against colonies without ties to a memberstate in Organized systems, echoing similar disdains for when the system was ‘given’ to the Franchise holders of the neighbouring Organized system of Archavoinet by way of System of Interest claim last year, though there is notably more upset with the involvement of a Federal level entity.

Speaking on the Franchise Holders for the aforementioned SoI claim, a heightened readiness and activity has been noted amongst security units and in space patrols, with some six capital vessels seen coming and going at different time to and from the vicinity of the ‘Orbital Yards’ over planet VI, organized small ship units, and regular fightercraft flights launching from dedicated platforms to patrol the system.


(Pictured: recon flight of modified Dragonfly class fighters)

The Placid Tribune reached out to the CEO of Purosupekuta Resourcing Auxiliary-Navy, Sakabkei Kiijata, a supporter of the United Neopian Federation and one of the Security Franchise holders enforcing the SoI claim, and he had this to say:

“I am a full-time dad, now. I’m a high-profile capsuleer who’s gotten lots of death threats, and have previously been targeted. But consider that in spite of that, I’ve chosen to rear my children in this system because I have faith in our readiness. Even more so in recent months after an overhaul to our recovery operation procedures. Before the last war, none of this from us or even the FIO was necessary, since then the system was like every other low out there, changing hands in the warzone every other day from conscripted eggs and brainless script riders who avoid newcomers to the system like soap repelling oil on the surface of water. If I feel safe here, I don’t understand why the FIO feels the need to conduct anything. That’s just asking for trouble. If you want more, there’s no one I’d trust more with my security operations than Chief of Operations Derek Niskahara. Excuse me, it’s feeding time.”


(Pictured: Sakabkei Kiijata, CEO of PRA-N)
Kiijata was only available outside of his children’s nursery for a brief period before he directed us towards his subordinate for further information. When we asked the Chief of Operations to elaborate on Kiijata’s last point, he had this to say:

“The thing about capsuleers is they’re hard to hide, and when they try to it usually means they’ve got something worth attacking them for to steal or get credit for on kill. What we’ve done is announce our presence here, but we’ve got nothing more to steal than anyone else. Especially since the last war trimmed us a bit. We’ve been low profile by being obvious, and that’s been fine with us. But the Feds choosing to investigate the system on their own terms suggests something’s here even when there’s not, and that draws the kind of attention we don’t need, or want. It’s like a capital in low. Even if there’s nothing in the system for the cap to smash, and try sniping loot on, people will turn their eyes to the system because there’s a cap there, and that’s just as good a score as any citadel.”

The Placid Tribune also attempted to reach out to Lauralite Brezia, the CEO of Wolf Brothers INC, and administrator of what is likely the largest currently independent colony in Eugales, but was unable to get a response for this publication.

Of note is that Nadire Security Consultants, , a security firm with ties to the Nadire district in Sinq Laison, seems to have deployed a supporting force to the FIO contingent. We managed to reach out to one of the supporting pilots, Clementine LaFleur , for comment about Nadire’s deployment ethos, and personal thoughts about the potential for abuses with the FIO’s broad mandate.

“We here at Nadire Security Consultants believe in a united Federation and here to support the Federal Intelligence Office and ensure that abuse is not being committed by independent colonies, not the other way round.
I would also like to add that FIO operate under direct instructions of the President, for who many, myself included voted for.”


(Pictured: Clementine Lafluer, NADSC contractor)

further questions were met with statements about confidential orders, and the subject was dropped.

At this juncture, things remain uncertain for the future of the system of Eugales.

Mamanaysh, Sabusi VI

Scuttlebutt around the cantinas of Lower Sib suggest that one of the capsuleer locals has left home, at least temporarily.

Zenour Noud, a mainstay of the Khanid Military Circuit, has, through a family petition to the Holding of Levab in the southern tropic of Moro III, sought permission from the Duchy for a sabbatical from her duties to the Throne. Though the terms of the petition are not presently a matter of public disclosure, a recent record of note is a lease signed by the family patriarch (and skilled pilot in his own right), Fradat-Vant Noud. The lease in question secures the rental of a domicile in Orpana, the distant Caldari constellation that straddles the borders of three regions. Rumors suggest the rental is for his daughter.

Commander Noud, while active in supressing Nation and Blood Raider crime in the KMC, was also a participant in the EDENCOM defense against Triglavian invasion. Orpana itself is flanked by the Obe, Wirashoda, and Otanuomi systems, the latter two of which are now subsumed into the Pochven network of liminal stars. If there is a connection between these locations and the recent move, it remains merely a matter speculation among the pilots in the south of the Kingdom.

Recording of a CVN Broadcast from a few weeks ago

WAR IN POCHVEN
Welcome to Clade Veles News, where we keep you informed on everything that goes on in Pochven. Things have been hot in the Domain of Pochven these past two weeks as Krai Veles benefactors Stribog Clade and allies from all around Pochven faced off against nullsec powerhouse Fraternity and their unexpected allies Nullsechnaya Sholupen, who were hired to aid in the assault. For a total time of 5 days Stribog Clade was on high alert, enforcing stringent security measures on the system of Wirashoda that hindered civilian traffic greatly for the duration. During this period of time the little known group Lobster of the Liquidators assaulted Archee with a small force of Raven battleships and Basilisk logistics cruisers, hoping to take advantage of the pressure exerted by repeated Fraternity attacks. A ragtag bombing run by SKS3 and PHUB. pilots dissuaded them from provoking the Fortizar in the system, and they did not return to continue their aggression. Presently the nullsec power has entered into a Non-Invasion Pact with Stribog for the cost of one Astrahus in the Wirashoda system. Neither entity will attack the other’s infrastructure, but pilots are still fair game. Official statements from Maldavius, leader of Stribog Clade, highlight the wealth of experience gained from the defense effort by inexperienced members as a priceless benefit that leaves the alliance better off than it was before the conflict; expressing immense pride in the willingness of kybernauts to rise to the occasion.
But the war in the skies is not the only conflict to ravage Pochven, on the ground fighting continues between stubborn military personnel acting under the command of EDENCOM operatives and the Collective’s highly skilled tactical troika. A new development in this ongoing battle, rebels strike back in Senda. Yesterday, an SAF holdout cell was uncovered on Senda IV attempting to sabotage crucial infrastructure in the city of Kuriisai by a routine patrol. The criminals opened fire with reckless abandon in an attempt to open an escape route. Authorities moved to box them in whilst directing civilians in the area out of the line of fire. Tragically, despite these effortts 5 bystanders were wounded and 2 killed, but 3 of the perpetrators were gunned down whilst fleeing and a fourth captured. It is expected that the detainee will yield valuable information as to the whereabouts of other resistance groups, updates as they come.

A reporter speaks over the new channels
New Caldari unity in Saisio System

Rumors emerge of demands for a push in liberal politics within Caldari society following the heavy losses of various systems within the Caldari State.
“Our apathy and greed of the unwillingness to help each other will destroy our culture our people and our independence”, one protestor said.
The weakening of the Caldari State increased tension with Gallente supporters in the last few months and many here fear increased aggression from the Federation as the State recovers from this turmoil.
“We should put aside our profit margins to recover and heal. If we don’t there won’t be any State left to do business in.”
Many believe the top stake holders are allowing the failures to continue as it will allow them to sell more warships in the long term with prolonged chaos. With out a central government there is little hope that the Cheif Excutive Pannel will do anything to recover lost systems from Triglavian attacks. Will the Caldari come together to will this cause further division within the State?

It goes without saying that one’s ethnicity is not a factor in their potential… In fact I’d go as far as to say that ethnicity is an entirely made up concept. A product of humanity’s natural tribalistic way of thinking… I can forgive it, but all of you are here to be enlightened to think above such things… You wanna know what names like Caldari, Gallente, Amarr and Minmatar are? They’re all labels. Labels that cultures have created to brand themselves and separate them from humans they deem to be different than them… It goes beyond culture, they go further to brand your very body as one of ‘them’ and place you either in favor, or disgust. If that doesn’t sound like tribalism, then I must not know what is - Regardless, this is why I identify as Raata before I acknowledge any Caldari heritage in me, as I prefer to identify with my human spirit before I identify with some arbitrary skin-tone or facial structure I’ve inherited…

Identifying with such labels is barbaric to me… A close minded and narrow way of thinking that these so called ‘advanced civilizations’ propagate to further control people and bring them under this tribalistic way of thinking… I speak of such things now more than ever of late because of these ‘Sedevacantist’ that have recently appeared in our lovely region and begun spreading a message built on tribalistic and degrading messaging. They speak with their chest out and speak with a tone of pride, but their words are nothing but insecurities.

They whine about the ass of a Uldorian sitting on the Amarrian throne and declare “Not my empress” and pretend that nobody is even in charge… They claim Amarrian superior, yet seemingly lack the mental capacity to process the irrelevance such a label holds because they can’t imagine a world where them identifying as Amarr holds no meaning… They force these racial labels around to keep others out of their prosperous tribe and screech out that those outside this tribe serve them for their interests… And most humoring, they love to point out that a woman with the label of Amarr mating with one labeled as Minmatar is an abomination - Because they all have a insecurity of being cucked by those they deem lesser… Perhaps it’s all some repressed sexual desires they’re failing to express.

Is it not a pity? Could you imagine going on and caring about whose ass sits upon the Amarrian Throne? What arbitrary ethnicity someone is? Feeling unsatisfied everyday that the world isn’t bowing to your meaningless labels and could you process how it must feel to go on everyday thinking your sexual desires are evil and disgusting?.. Well, maybe the disgust is the appeal to begin with.

What I ask of everyone here is just to think beyond such a simple minded way of thinking, to think beyond these labels society has forced on us to control our identity. If you wish to go by one of these labels, then that is your choice like any other - But why? What pride is there to be had in considering yourself Caldari? Or Gallente? Amarr or Minmatar? What significance do any of these labels hold? That is a question, for you to answer yourself.

Several Minmatar news outlets have reported an uptick in sporadic, guerrilla-style attacks in more remote regions of Floseswin IV in recent weeks. While the war-torn Tribal Republic world has been largely secure since Hetman General Kanth Filmir’s forces drove the Amarr invasion from the planet last year, the extended period of Imperial space superiority may be facilitating renewed violence.

While the primary perpetrators are thought to be Amarr troops left behind from the ill-fated invasion, the efficacy and renewed frequency of the attacks suggests the fighters have been bolstered by new supplies and additional help from infiltrated recon and special forces units. The targets have ranged from isolated Minmatar military patrols, convoys and supply dumps, to civilian infrastructure such as power relays and water systems. The most daring attack, occurring last night in a particularly hard-hit region between the cities of Port Kul and Jolan Kraal, targeted a weapons manufacturing plant. The effects of this strike are still unknown with Tribal officials citing security of information concerns before releasing further details.

While the attacks are concerning, Republic forces seem confident that the overall security of the planet remains stable despite growing worry of a renewed invasion. Anti-orbital defences remain in place, and while gaps may have allowed a small trickle of Amarrian reinforcement, any invasion would be a costly endeavour. Still, dwindling supplies with no local source are becoming a concern with the Amarr blockade in effect until Tribal Liberation Force capsuleers can break the siege, and vulnerabilities in the aerospace defence network are becoming more difficult to close.

For the situation on the ground, it has been suggested by some military analysts that an appropriate response to the small-scale attacks would be to increase the size of the task-forces responsible for combating and eliminating the remaining pockets of Amarr resistance, thought to be still led by Colonel General Vikhtor Mazari. It remains yet to be seen if the Floseswin Armies are willing to divert such resources from more heavily defended locations to affect this, however.

The Pochven Report: Bioadaptation and PMC Leaders

Bioadaptation continues to progress across Pochven, in particular the heavily populated but highly cooperative system of Vale is nearing completion of the process. Most of the population has already had a stay in the bioadaptation chambers and moved into new housing constructed in accordance with Clade Veles’ high standards. Work is already finished on the molten spheres of Vale I and III as well as the oceanic Vale VI, and the key worlds of Vale II, IV, and V whose large populations complicated efforts have undergone incredible progress these past few months, the biospheres adjusting to the new mutaplasmid rich environment. Also on the verge of project completion is the Krai Svarog system of Krirald. Formerly under the jurisdiction of the Minmatar Republic, Krirald was the last system the Collective desired for the weaving of the Domain of Pochven, and unlike other territories, Krirald is claimed to have been completely evacuated by the Minmatar Republic; leaving the highly skilled Clade Svarog with free reign over the system once conquered. With no real interference, applying their substantial mutaplasmid expertise to the uncontested planets of Krirald has been child’s play for them, though it could be even easier if they acquiesce to the use of drones to assist in the process. Last, but certainly not least is Raravoss. The very first system conquered by our great Collective, Clade Svarog has dominated the ground ever since opposition was pushed out of space. Mutaplasmid-fueled enhancement programs have been underway ever since and at long last have been completed. Although Veles and Svarog typically have different perspectives on the best way to approach an issue, it is our firm belief that these accomplishments are to the benefit of the whole Triglavian Collective, and thus grant them the recognition and support they deserve for their tireless work to the benefit of us all.

Mercenary Motivations

Excerpts from the exclusive CVN interview with the leadership of the presently Wirashoda-based private military contractors Eagles of Storm Wind, Swords of Geros, and Sobornost Security Force shed light on the reasons these groups have come the aid of the Triglavian Collective. Commander Raish had this to say: “The Caldari State hasn’t had a real victory in nearly 13 years! The Triglavians have shown once again that the State is not able to secure the Caldari people. That year after year we are served platters of lies to placate the populace and keep the executives in power without doing their duty … The Collective and State share key values. The good of the whole comes first, the pursuit of the most effective methods, the recognition of excellency…but the Collective is sincere in these values. This is a more honest nation. Frankly, all Caldari should join the Triglavians. They’ll be treated better.”

But Director Hopper had different words for us. “I wanted to properly assess the culture of the Triglavians, see it for what it really was, not what political figures said it was. By my assessment the Triglavian Collective has no intention of stripping people of their freedoms, they just operate differently than we’re used to. The needs of the many do outweigh the needs of the few here, but this is for the good of all the people, and individual thought is still valued. Most notably, there’s far less corruption here than in the Federation, and that’s a welcome change.”

Chief Leelin said: “I felt like people were being a little too hard on the Triglavians. They didn’t strike me as these horrible invaders here to do unspeakable things to us, because they had a sound strategy for minimizing both civilian casualties and their own. At cost of allowing the defenders to build last-minute fortifications, they held back from planetary assault until space superiority was definitively established, at which point they leveraged capital assets to negate any hardened positions and quickly overwhelm opposing forces with disproportionate force. Currently, I feel I was correct to give the Triglavians a chance. What I’ve got my eye on next, is how they handle things after this place has calmed down. When everyone is bioadapted and the EDENCOM personnel are less of an issue, how will the Collective rule? SSF plans to stick around to find out.”

Prayer drones deployed by the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist have been spotted operating in multiple systems throughout the cluster. A common sight in Amarr territories, even unauthorized prayer drones are often tolerated as an expression of faith by the people, so long as the drones’ messages are orthodox and they avoid sensitive locations.

  • On the Gallentean border world of Lamadent III, prayer drones repeating the message “The Throne is Vacant” pathed through the run-down streets of the city of Roussillon , including through Minmatar-populated slums that have been targets of the Sedevacantists’ ire. When the local authorities attempted their removal, however, drone-rights activists secured an injunction permitting the prayer drones’ continued circuit.
  • Sedevacantist prayer drones in the “Dustbowl” colonies of Syndicate were quickly seized, disassembled, and sold for parts by some of the colonies’ destitute residents. According to witnesses, the scavengers were initially attracted by the drones’ shiny gold covering, perhaps adapted from Acolyte drones, of which sedevacantist founder Nauplius has a ready supply.
  • Chanting “Престол вакантен”, a localized version of the sedevacantist slogan, prayer drones targeting House deSilvestris facilities in the system of Nakri only completed a few circuits before being captured by House Sarum, Ministry of Internal Order, and local authorities who have been cracking down on sedevacantist cells in the system for the last couple of weeks.
  • By contrast, monks on the Achuran homeworld of Saisio III whose monastery was circled by sedevacantist prayer drones did not understand the drones’ purpose, thinking the chanted slogan “The Throne is Vacant” to be a kind of “koan”, a riddle which in Achuran thought is meant to lead to greater wisdom. The monks prohibited the drones’ removal until the meaning of the “koan” could be completely debated.

Suspected Cause Of Quarantine on Torrinos V-V Found


Scientists of Airko-Tensei Group stated that recent outbreak can be caused by leaked nanobots.

According to ATG report (is at disposal of Kirjuun) combination of caused symptoms and low contagiousness are characteristical for industrial nanobots exposure. Possible pathogen had identified as engineered bacteria with alarmingly high rate of reproduction and mutation. Also notable that found nanite model have several features unusual for common types of industrial nanomachines which raises questions regarding its origin.

As means of translation are still unclear and futher researches needed for understanding at fullest nature of new pathogen scientists urge for compliance with established quarantine measures.

Novel viruses, superbacterias, exotic diseases - this is just another addition to never ending list of challenges for medical science. By itself nanobot diseases are not new, however in this case cause seems to be experimental or “rogue” kind of nanobots. We already work on finding ways to combat this new disease while our medicine already can deal with most of symptoms. But finding final solution will take time. And before that we ask you to follow all government orders and guidelines.
Be healthy and stay safe.
