"I realize that I use my platform to condemn the State and by extension, other world power. While it may be inappropriate to mix my feels with my spiritual message, I believe it is necessary that I desanctify their status. For too long in our lives we’ve been led to believe that nations like the State, Federations, Republic and Empire are somehow sacred entities that only the most vile people would raise a hand against. That to strike them is to strike the divine itself.

Want to know what is divine? Nature is. And nature knows no border, knows no language or man-imposed authority! Yet they see otherwise, they believe themselves to be above nature, that their authority and claims are absolute. They’re all imaginary… No amount of bureaucracy would make them anymore special than the pirate clans they condemn.

While I’m on the subject… Any spiritual teaching that demands or expects obedience to an institute of authority is an abomination. I do not stand here demanding that people become Guristas to appease the winds or that the Guristas are the real chosen people of the winds. Why? Because It would be clear manipulation of our desire for a spiritual connection to our world. To place loyalty to a frivolous nation or group before your spiritual needs and connection. Look to the Caldari who preach that the Winds look over them and them alone or the Amarrians who demand people kneel before another human sitting upon a throne. These governments care only about spirituality so that they may further subjugate others, not stopping with their corporeal forms or their mental state, but going after their very spirits itself!"

CROWDS OF FAITHFUL ATTEND NAKRI DAY OF COMMEMORATION AND PRAYER

The Amarr Navy and Sarum Family stations in Nakri saw huge crowds gather in the numerous plazas earlier today as the Day of Commemoration and Prayer took place, whilst countless others watched on holo-screens across the system or attended their own, smaller, private ceremonies at home, in the workplace, and elsewhere.

Leaders of the Faith in Amarr led the Procession, followed by members of the Nobie Houses, influential Families, and Representatives of the Sarum Family, Ministry of Internal Order, Amarr Navy, and others. The people of Nakri carried numerous banners adorned with prayers and thanks to God, and Holy Symbols of the Faith, as well as many portraits , large and small, of Her Imperial Majesty Empress Catiz, and Royal Heir Lord Arrach Sarum.

As is tradition in Nakri for commemorations, many of the people attending held images of loved ones as the Leaders of the Faith spoke prayers not only for the sons and daughters of Nakri who have fallen recently, but also for those victims in other areas of the Empire, the Khanid Kingdom, and the Ammatar Mandate. In particular, many voices were raised in prayer and hymn for those lost in the devastating attacks on Kahah III.

It was, of course, not only a day of mourning and reflection, but one of thanks and celebration to the Mercy of God, for the return home of those who had been held captive until recently on Floseswin IV. Deafening cheers were raised when Lord Vladimir deSilvestris, whose Household Forces were involved in that rescue operation, stepped forward to give thanks for the success of the endeavour.

It is hoped that this small, humble gesture from the people of Nakri is accepted by those across the Empire, Kingdom, and Mandate, especially the people of Kahah III, as a symbol of unity between our systems, united in Faith and Strength. The donations from Nakri to the affected planets and systems continues unabated, and we expect that just as with the terrible events that befell Raravoss, any who wish to seek refuge in Nakri will be welcomed with open arms.

"It be a foolish goal to have to see the enter Cluster become Wayists. To somehow make every living individual come into agreement with one spiritual philosophy… Frankly it’s unnecessary. I would have to be insecure about my beliefs to feel the need to see to it that everyone sees the world as I do. If I had any confidence in what I preach, then I’d seek no further than those that willing listen. Regardless if one believes in it or not, they are apart of this reality as much as we are, adhere to the same nature as do we. There will be no punishment or penalty in death for falling to recognize these things in your mortal life.

Why I even bother to put a message out is in hopes of inspiring others, to strengthen them spirituality so that they may go out and achieve greater things and be more enlightened about the world around them. If one does not see merit in what I speak, then the fault is on me, not them. I have failed to craft a message that they find agreement in. They are not to be seen as infidels or non-believers, or practitioners of a false religion. Treat them as you would a fellow Wayist. For regardless of if they know or not, they’re are apart of nature as we are."

Attention User!

The Venal Prosperity Network is Unfortunately in position to announce that tragedy has struck the Windchime Shrine aboard the Logistical Station in N5Y-4N. During the closing remarks of a spiritual session hosted by Windchime Guru Suha Raibuya, an explosive device erupted from amongst the assembled audience

Suha Raibuya is reported to be ALIVE and slightly injured, unfortunately however the explosion’s close proximity resulted in the deaths of twenty-seven and injuring thirteen more.

This is by far an astounding embarrassment on behalf of the Security detail selected for the job for letting such a device slip though and cause so much death and destruction. Proper measures are being taken to reprimand those on duty and the Prosperity Network would like to present the names of those that perished this evening.

Observers of the situation in Floseswin have cited unconfirmed reports from the fourth planet of “shadowy figures” apprehending and detaining people under suspicious and unknown circumstances. Although currently little more than rumours, the reports speak of “soldiers in the night”, forcibly entering the homes of individuals and families who are known or suspected of having Amarrian sympathies. It is notable that all of the reports thus far appear to be concentrated in the vicinity of the internment camps from which Amarrian Prisoners-of-War were rescued earlier this year, or near facilities damaged or destroyed by what are now known to be Amarrian Special Forces prior to those events. It is thus suspected that these may be acts of reprisal, although who is behind them is not yet known.

SUCCESSFUL ATTACKS CARRIED OUT AGAINST HERETIC FACILITY. FURTHER ASSAULTS EXPECTED.

The people of Nakri were treated to heartening scenes recently as attacks were made against the recently anchored facility of a heretical sect. As Loyalist Amarrian forces carefully prepared their own assaults, a Federation-based Capsuleer Group known as Nadire Security Consultants struck their own blow, weakening the Raitaru-class station and significantly compromising its shields. Although the presence of the organisation caused some concerns for weaker-willed and lesser informed parties outside of Nakri, those who follow the standings and affiliations of Capsuleer Groups are aware that Nadire are able to cross the border without special permission as they are not at war with our Empire, and it is understood that this strike was in response to a number of foul crimes and deeds committed against the Federation by the heretic group.

Speaking in response to baseless accusations from elements outside of Nakri that Nadire had been “invited in” by his Family, Lord Vladimir deSilvestris responded by dismissing the idea, stating that “this Family has every confidence in the abilities of Amarrian groups loyal to Her Imperial Majesty to deal with heretics” but that Nadire were “well within their Rights according to various Treaties” to “strike against their enemies wherever they may be.” Lord Artem Koval also issued a statement, saying that he had “more concerns over those who loudly proclaim they stand against heretics and traitors to the Empire yet do nothing” than “a foreign force who comes to Nakri to help, even if unintentionally, remove this shadow that threatens our home”.

Security Chief Sokolov issued system-wide warnings against anyone using the heretic station, advising that their safety cannot be guaranteed, and adding that regardless of any attacks against the enemy, anyone using the station would be considered as having sympathy with the heretic. Chief Sokolov also warned that it is unlikely the heretic would “go peacefully”, and that all residents of Nakri should be vigilant in the coming days against increased “heretical propaganda intended to undermine the morale and loyalty of the people of Nakri”.

Other declarations of war by Loyalist Capsuleer Groups against the heretics have been announced, and associated attacks, expected to be devastating to the enemy, are likely to occur within the week.

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

A fresh batch of propaganda posters issued by the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist have appeared in the system of Nakri in response to a Gallentean Loyalist attack upon a Raitaru operated by the sedevacantists in the system. Each poster prominently features the slogan Предатели!, meaning “Traitors!”, as well as the now-expected sedevacantist slogan “The Throne is Vacant”. One poster features Gallentean marines ransacking an Amarr Church while prominent local nobleman Alexandr deSilvestris smiles approvingly in the background, passionately embracing his Minmatar bride. Another poster has the Gallentean marines rounding up working-class Amarrians into a concentration camp while nearby Gallentean loyalist capsuleer Edward Adams (aka MantelGlobalIndustries) presents a huge bouquet of roses to appreciative local noblewoman, Ekaterina deSilvestris.

Although House Sarum and Ministry of Internal Order agents have assisted local authorities in suppressing sedevacantist activities in Nakri, the presence of a Sedevacantist Church Citadel likely facilitates the distribution of propaganda in system, at least as long as at lasts—which may not be much longer as forces gather for a second strike upon the facility at this writing.

SECOND ATTACK ON HERETIC FACILITY IN NAKRI AS CRACKDOWN ON SEDITIONIST ACTIVITY INCREASES

Leaders of the Faith announced a Day of Thankful Prayer today in the wake of a second assault on Raitaru-class station belonging to a heretic organisation. Following a preliminary bombardment by a Federation-based Capsuleer Group pursuing their own actions against the enemy, Task Forces from the well-known and highly-honoured Amarr Loyalist Organisations Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris and Khimi Harar, alongside vessels from the Duchy of Fekhoya in the Khanid Kingdom. It was reported that the armour defences of the station have been completely destroyed, leaving the heretic facility with an ever decreasing amount of time before it is vanquished for good.

Faithful residents across Nakri celebrated the successful attack, with many saying that they saw the co-operation between Empire and Kingdom against a common enemy as a positive omen for the future. Security forces reported some incidents of sporadic, unorganised revenge attacks against a tiny number of supporters of the heretic who had been apprehended attempting to distribute the vile propaganda of the foe. Security Chief Sokolov appealed for calm from the people of Nakri, recognising that tensions are understandably high against subversive elements, all of whom where noted as being of non-Nakri origin, but that the Faithful should remain vigilant and report any suspicions to the proper Imperial Authorities.

Chief Sokolov also stated that “it is only a matter of time before this shadow is lifted from our home, for which we must and shall give thanks to the brave and selfless Capsuleers involved”, and confirmed that as a precaution to an expected reaction by the heretics to “increase their futile activities”, security forces, with the support of the Ministry of Internal Order and elements from the Sarum Family and the local vassals, would be focusing increased effort on “detecting and neutralising” any enemy influence in Nakri.

IMPERIAL LOYALISTS DESTROY HERETIC FACILITY. NAKRI SALUTES HEROIC CAPSULEERS

Celebrations were seen across Nakri today as the shadow of vile heresy was cast away by the actions of Capsuleers loyal to Her Imperial Majesty. Following their previous attack which severely damaged the Raitaru station, members of the Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris, commanded by famed Chapter Master Lord Lok’ri and including Nakri’s very own daughter, Paladin-Ordinary Lady Ekaterina Mariya deSilvestris, with support from seasoned Defenders of the Faith from both Khimi Harar and the Duchy of Fekhoya, purged the enemy from our system in a blaze of Righteous Light.

Residents of Nakri watched in awe at the demonstration of the Power of Faith and immediately upon the heretic facility erupting in brilliant explosion, celebrations and Prayers of Thanks could be heard throughout the Navy and Sarum stations, as well as space-borne and planet-bound facilities large and small. The names of the Capsuleers involved were on the lips of all those who saw the Hand of God in their actions, and numerous reports from across Nakri already tell of images of the heroes being given a special place in people’s homes, a custom not uncommon in our system for those deemed to have performed a great service.

Amongst the joyous reaction, there were calls for continued vigilance. Though there has been an increased crackdown on any subversive activity within Nakri, Security Chief Sokolov warned that it is likely that supporters of the heretic will “attempt to disappear into the underground”, though he vowed that “nowhere shall be safe for them”. Chief Sokolov also stated that a trial date for those already apprehended had been agreed.

Leading figures from across Nakri issued a Joint Statement, thanking the “Noble Capsuleers of Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris, Khimi Harar, and Duchy of Fekhoya, who stood in defence of the people of Nakri, and gave so selflessly of themselves. May their names be ever remembered and honoured.”

After the harrowing incident that occurred two weeks prior aboard the N5Y-4N station, the location of the space-bound Windchime shrine has been deemed an unsuitable location for further spiritual teaching due to security and safety hazards exposed by the aforementioned incident.

The space-bound shrine of N5Y-4N is therefore closed permanently. In it’s place however is the upcoming opening of a new space-bound shrine aboard the Rabbit’s Warren above 6NJ8-V. This new site promises to be a vastly superior new location boasting a far wider and more spacious location for seating during spiritual sessions and a wider assortment of amenities. This new shrine promises to be a step forward to the future ahead with all mistakes taken into account to make a more updated, and safer location for reflecting in life spiritually.

Windchime Guru Suha Raibuya has already relocated over into 6NJ8-V and the Prosperity Network plans for a smooth opening as early as June 15th. IF you’re in the area, we hope to see you there!

Seemingly Sloshed Biko Visits Summit
123.05.26

A recent visit to the FTL channel The Summit by the controversial Alexylva Paradox [ALXVP] Gateway Ché Biko has not gone unnoticed by his fans and critics, who have been commenting on it on various GalNet sites. The visit was special just because Biko has not been very visible in public since the destruction of Phoenix Station in ALXVP’s Anoikis colony Origin on 123.02.01, but this visit to The Summit would be likely be remarked on regardless and have left a lot wondering about his mental well being.

The first comments raising a few heads concerned Sansha’s Nation and the Triglavian Collective. Biko mentioned that he preferred Sansha’s Nation over the Collective, in part due to the latter’s disapproval of hivelinking. Some Origin citizens defended him: “He was actually doing his job as Gateway, representing the hiveminded people in our colony.” Others see it more as evidence supporting the theory that Biko is secretly some kind of Nation agent, pointing at Biko’s Nightmares and previous publications by SmEggtalk Press and Gutter Press, as well as his friendly attitude towards True Purpose capsuleer Ji Yung Lee during his visit on The Summit.

Later Biko mentioned that he had encountered sefrim while under the influence of alcohol and possibly other drugs after having been shown a video which had severely distressed him. “I was shown a recording of myself attempting to shoot myself in the head, but I don’t recall that happening”. He continued claiming that sefrim are Sani Sabik. Amarr in particular are labeling these statements as outrageous insults of the Amarr religion by a heretic sod. A spokeperson for the Church of Ché in Caille commented “This is nothing new. I think there have been multiple occasions where Ché discussed these encounters on The Summit. Here…one of the first times was on 115.12.18 when asked about what the strangest thing he had seen was. He also seems to refer to that video then.

Soon after discussing the “sefrim” encounters, Biko continued to comment on problems with his memory, then went on to say no one liked him, not even himself. Biko then chatted with Intaki Darius Chambers. In that increasingly incoherent conversation he mentioned once sounding and having been like Chambers, having love for all, but that he could never be that someone again after something broke him and he lost his “Way”, and that he was dulling the pain of his loveless life with frentix.
A user of a Biko fansite comments on the forum: “Has anyone else noticed how he tends to act like this more often around this time of the year? I bet it is related to the anniversary of the attack on the Ishukone HQ in Malkalen. His experiences there must have left some scars.

Court battle over Sedevacantist Amarrian Orthodox Church continues as violent clashes reported in Lamadentin

29th May YC123/FC238

Lamadent Capital News Network

The legal challenge issued against the self-styled Sedevacantist Amarrian Orthodox Church continues to be deliberated by the Aeman Federal District Court as new evidence has been produced by the aggrieved parties.

New evidence, including an alleged parcel containing images of equipment commonly used in slavery compliance delivered to a Matari capsuleer from Sedevacantist sponsor and infamous mass-murderer ‘Nauplius’, has been presented to the Court as episodes of violent confrontations have been reported within the Tribunate of Lamadent. Violence has been particularly virulent within the township of Roussillon, between crowds supporting the Church and those that have protested its presence. Lamadentin, the Capital, has also seen significant civil unrest from organised protests aimed at removing the Church from the member state.

Incidents of violence have increased after the televised destruction of Nauplius’ Raitaru-class installation in Nakri on the 23rd, described as a ‘Temple of Sedevacantism’. The moment the Raitaru exploded under excessive weapons fire from Federation security contractors Nadire Security Consultants and Imperial-aligned paramilitaries, audible cheers could be heard from the gathered crowds in the Capital and elsewhere in the member state.

The Roussillon Sheriff’s Office and Tribunate Gendarmerie have issued statements that anyone found engaging in violence will be detained. Nonetheless, accusations from the Sedevacantist supporters have been made against local and member state law enforcement organisations for perceived leniency against the protestors. An example cited to support this inequality in treatment was the alleged release of several protestors in Roussillon armed with incendiary devices near the vicinity of the Church premises after their weapons had been confiscated by deputy sheriffs.

Groups elsewhere within the Federation have as cited previously offered financial and legal assistance to the protestors as well as the coalition of groups that are challenging the Tribunate’s decision. Minmatar focus groups in Sinq Laison as well as the All-Federation Caldari League continues to provide counsel and advice to those parties as well as canvassing support within the District Parliament through lobbying officials.

The Aeman Federal District Court has not yet decided on this case, but it is understood by L-CNN that they are acting with impartiality and fairness, hearing both sides arguments. Nonetheless, inside sources within the Court have confirmed that the allegations of Constitutional breaches and terrorist support for the Church have been made a priority, with observers from the Gallente Police Directorate and Special Department for Internal Investigations present.

L-CNN will provide further updates as they are made available to us. We have been unable to reach a representative of the Sedevacantist Amarrian Orthodox Church for comment on the latest developments.

Have you been affected by this story? Are you a supporter or protestor of the Sedevacantist Church? Please get in touch with your opinions, if it is safe to do so.

Saisio VII - Moon 1 - Peace and Order Unit Testing Facilities

Lai Dai Protection Service Implicated in Saisio VII Raid


Peace and Order security services were shaken this morning as they awoke to a swift and ruthless raid by an elite strike team attempting to force access to the Saisio VII Testing Facility shipyards. Thought to be the location of the now-mothballed LDSS Airkio’s Promise following its reemergence from wormhole space in April of 2020, the vessel was the topic of fierce contention within the Corporate Executive Panel before it was ultimately granted to SuVee at the discretion of CEP Chair Puok Kossinen following unexpected support for SuVee from the Kaalakiota delegation.

The status of Airkio’s Promise has been an embarrassment and a sticking point within Lai Dai leadership since the incident, with the Raven-class battleship relinquished by Lai Dai as an assumed bargaining chip in negotiations over future territorial concessions. With SuVee dominating the market share in real estate within the Caldari State, particularly within the Archura home system of Saisio, Lai Dai has expressed their intention to negotiate within the CEP for increased ownership over disputed property rights and unresolved zoning conflicts. These talks ultimately failed to materialize any tangible gains however over the following year, leaving Lai Dai down one potentially valuable research asset without just compensation. LDPS has demonstrated multiple times their willingness to repossess their perceived property, by force if necessary. With the balance of power upset following the bombing of CEP Spire in Landfall City many believe Lai Dai has now taken the opportunity to correct this supposed “injustice” before a new CEP Chair can be appointed, avoiding potential consequences for an act of aggression against SuVee.

At approximately 0600EVE, bulkheads in the drydock hangar where Airkio’s Promise is held were breached by an exothermic charge granting gunmen immediate access to the hangar’s control room from the adjunct deck. A secondary device was then triggered to release a high-frequency pulse deafening those inside. Confused and disoriented, research workers scrambled to defend themselves but were further caught off guard when found themselves being assaulted by soldiers in Lai Dai Protection Service dropsuits. Those that surrendered were zip-tied and funneled into the nearby breakroom while those who attempted to resist were cut down by rail rifle fire. The gunmen continued to make their way room to room to gain access to the vessel, but were ultimately cut off in a corridor by a Peace and Order Unit quick response team. A firefight ensued, with several hundred rounds exchanged between both sides before the assailants were neutralized.

Bodies recovered from the alleged Lai Dai Protection Service team quickly began to undergo nanite self-termination to prevent recovery and identification, but weapons and equipment recovered from the scene do not seemingly match LDPS standard issue gear. Instead, several recovered rifles could be tracked to NoH weapons shipments originally produced under license for joint PKN Interstellar testing aimed to to optimize and streamline small arms production among Forest Faction security services and to compete with Upwell Consortium’s export-focused small arms project. It is unknown where the assault team staged from, or how they were capable of gaining access to the facility.

Nugoeihuvi, at one potion Sukuuvestaa’s largest shipping partner, increasingly transferring shipping and equipment to PKN Interstellar allies over their historic partners within the now largely defunct Practicals bloc further demonstrates the new political divides facing the state of a time of increasing turmoil and shrinking opportunity for reconciliation between two dialectically opposed camps; the austere plutocratic Forest Faction and the reformist Ocean Faction with Kaalakiota & SuVee’s Mountain Faction torn between the two. The future of the Caldari State seems increasingly determined on the actions of the Mountain Faction now in response to this crisis, be that through negotiation and compromise or through submission to an increasingly authoritarian Forest Faction.

While perhaps previously unthinkable, the potential for the Mountain Faction including the historically Patriots-allied Kaalakiota to side with the progressive Ocean Faction in response to Lai Dai aggression merely demonstrates the ongoing paradigm shift among the Caldari people. As the former tip of the spear for the Provist movement, it is perhaps fitting that Kaalakiota now draw closer to Ishukone as public support grows for a new form of left wing populism that hopes to synthesize the workers protections and nationalization of the Heth regime with syndicalist reforms.

“One of the irrefutable lessons we can learn from Gallente colonial history is their failure to reconcile nationalist and left-wing factions during the Steroyn Arcologies War, as if they simply must remain vehemently opposed and share no common cause” comments House of Records agent Suky Karkinen, “I think the Caldari Spirit, born from the inhospitable conditions on our Home, not only prevents us from falling to that same mistake as the colonizers; it practically inoculates us. Pooling of resources, supporting each other’s livelihood, and service beyond ones self was absolutely necessary for survival from each according to their ability to each according to their needs. I think a form of rapprochement between the Mountain Faction and the Ocean Faction offers an opportunity to rekindle that spirit and evolve the State organically in response to the current turmoil rather than doubling down on the status quo. This latest incident is just another example of how fragile the status quo has become.”

Lai Dai representatives have yet to respond to inquiry on the incident.
