CaillieGirls™ October YC123 Edition

The following publication has been passed to CaillieGirls™ by the Internal Triglavian Revolutionary Organization claiming to act on behalf of imbedded reporter Hugo Harghest. Established sources were unable to verify the legitimacy of the claim nor content herein. Previously assumed dead following a collapse in contact during the battle of Sa’kak in YC122, the article has been published out of respect for the reporter and as a fascinating, if unproven, look at like in the Snake Pit of New Eden.

I had remained mostly on standby over the last year, invited for a ride-along every so often when the warclones of Skarkon wanted to make sure I had a front seat to document their exploits like the Battle of Ishuhuolovi Gulf on the Ergs Sea. This wasn’t going to be some back of the book article in a porno mag (no offense to my editor if you’re reading this) but a full on memoire, a textbook, a case study for the world to remember what happened here on the ground decades from now when the dust settles, fog clears, and the politicians start conjuring up their own myths in hindsight. Scream all you want about ethics but if some limpdick officer can sit their fat ass on a war council in silence while politicians throw up every red flag they can that they’re fascist pricks full of horseshit while they do nothing so they can sell all the details in a book deal then I’m not going to lose much sleep over holding onto my little scrapbook of war footage until the time is right.

For the last six months I was living in the Varyazi encampment, the Triglavian re-branding of the warclone combat team I’d pair with during the Invasion. The fall of Skarkon hit them a lot harder than they let on and woke something inside them a bit darker than when they first touched down. Few radicals were willing to hold ranks when their commander heel-turned to work with the new regime, even fewer were able to whether their constant “proving” to adapt to the new order. What’s left was small close-knit group of die-hard loyalists to their The Red Knight.

I’d met them a hand full of times during the war, brief moments between deployments in canvas tents on the airfields to assign groups to operations. The image he projects on the GalNet of the well-groomed warrior-poet rubbing shoulders with capsuleers doesn’t match the man I’d seen on the ground though; a pale featureless combat clone buttoned up in crims-- No crimson is too pretentious-- red armor, shrouded in an olive flight jacket. He was fond of plastering his helmet with nanite-laced dazzle paint, shifting and lighting up to convey the charisma that his ghoulish mass-produced face couldn’t. I got the call last week to meet with him again.

Usually, he saw me as a curiosity. He liked to hold court, clearly amused with keeping a reporter close as a novelty and a point of personal pride as he wrote history at gunpoint. This time though, he spared me the showmanship or the charming hayseed soldier act. He needed something from me, and a request he didn’t take lightly.

With such a light force, their doctrine was forced to adapt to asymmetric conflict and psychological operations to hit the enemy, twist the knife, then withdraw protected by overwhelming air power. Even then though, the Battle of Ishuhuolvi Gulf gutted their air cover and the last of their troops had been recalled to support the major kyber offensive in the North. The remnants of the encampment had a new tasking to open up a new front in the war; advancing into the Ngelgnieg Desert.

Before all this I was hunting a story in the Ngelgnieg, digging up leads on weapons trading and building a story on the people of the desert. The people of the Ngelgnieg were unique, far removed from the people of the habitable zone that surrounded the Ergs Sea. Generations of Cartel, Republic, Amarr, and now Svarog rule meant nothing to the nomadic clans that made their home there; if ever they were once Cartel settlers, Thukker offshoots, or Vherokior nomads has been lost to history after generations of isolation reshaped their language, culture, and makeup. Few spoke the language, or knew how to navigate their trade routes to the ruins they called home among the ancient colonies of long forgotten empires. They were an unknown unknown, indifferent to the colonial rulers that came and went and as-of-yet undecided in their role under the black sun of Skarkon.

I felt a lump in my throat when he asked me the question, and I replied without thinking. I would guide an expedition into the Ngelgnieg, and the secrets of Varyazi, the Collective, and now even the tribes of the desert would be open to me. The choice to accept the warclone implant from there was easy, an advanced insurance policy against an occupational hazard for the chance at the story of the century.

Could you blame me? Consider this my official letter of resignation, I’ve decided to go freelance now.

Strike Commander caught in Love (with a) Triangle?

See & Hear, Caille, Gallente Prime, 09/11/YC122

Following the allegations and accusations addressed at John Revenant’s I-RED and their EDENCOM allies, some of which went un-named other than being called out as Terrorists and Pirates, 8th of November. ( More found Here] ) Rumours are starting to circulate regarding the otherwise unblemished Strike Commander Kim, who jumped to the aid and defense of known Triglavian compatriots and -associates.

Why would the Strike Commander hold her hand over the heads of those who sought to destroy Star Systems that belonged to the Four Empires. What would compel someone of such strong moral fibers to side not with the ones who tried to save as much of the space and inhabitants of the Four Empires, but with the enemies of the State?

The answer may be found when we take a closer look at who the Strike Commander associates with. As many Summit Regulars may attest, there seems to be a very friendly air between the Strike Commander and a pro-Triglavian capsuleer going by the Concord ticker of Remilia Malitia. Who not only greet each other politely on public fluid routers, but often can be seen in engaging friendly chitchat, sharing what each is up to. Going so far as to clearly make plans to meet up in certain solar systems.

While See and Hear has many eyes and ears around the Cluster, even S&H doesn’t have eyes in every Local Fluid Router, so what goes on at these little trips between the Commander and her Pro-Trig Lady Friend, is anyone’s guess.

Asking around any of the Strike Commander’s regular stations, Caldari State stationside personnel says they are too intimidated by the Commander’s ruthless demeanor to comment under their own names. Anonymously they will go on record as thinking that the Strike Commander keeps Miss Malitia close by as a friend.

Some even go so far as saying that they have seen the pair stroll through the station’s Greenhouses and Gardens, as if on a romantic walk. ‘’They even held hands! That’s something for Federation Commanders! And with a woman?’’

The outrage can be heard in the Docker’s voice though they come around not long after: ‘’They only need DNA of two persons to grow tube children I guess, shouldn’t matter if it’s a pair of ladies.’’

‘’Whatever happens, I am sure the Strike Commander only wants to make the State great again. If she finds a strong capsuleer to share her genes with, we all benefit.’’

Another, Scotty (names fictitious, real names known by the redaction) says he never imagined the Strike Commander to have found someone to take her on picnics and long walks by the beach Bulkheads. ‘’But if she is happy now, I’m happy for my Commander.’’ Scotty is quick to add

The implications are of course many, what if the foremost capsuleer face of the Caldari Militia forces has a relationship with a poster-girl for the Pro-Trigs?

And one can only imagine the steamy bedroom romance that goes on behind the closed doors of the Strike Commander’s Quarters.

SedeVacantism or SedeMasochism?

See & Hear, Caille, Gallente Prime, 10/11/YC122

After recent discussions on the Summit regarding the Holy Amarrian Bloodlines, led up front by Nauplius, See and Hear went and asked what people think of the Amarrian Sedevacantist’s thoughts on procreation.

One of the groups we ask on the sidewalks of the Crystal Boulevard asks us who we are even talking about: ‘’Who is this Nauplius? Surely that is a gag sect right?’’ Upon explaining how serious the Leader of the SedeVacantism cult is about his heritage, the girls giggle and say he should visit the Crystal Boulevard, for some heavy drinking, light recreative drug use and excessive dancing. Citing: ‘’It would be good to de-stress. It’s what I do after my 80hour work week. I’m sure he is busy like that.’’

Some of the next people we ask, shrug and point us toward all of Nauplius’ previous antics, including kidnapping and forcing someone to be with him. They have no real faith in the Religous Leader ever finding someone to tame the passion for his religion. While yet another wonders if maybe Nauplius isn’t abstinent. ‘’It fits with other religious leaders, no? To be Celibate and not be tempted or distracted by worldly pleasures?’’

A group of well groomed young men wearing all-(synth, obviously)-leather, laughs as they are asked about who they see Nauplius end up with. ‘’He could come to our dungeon and maybe exact some Divine Vengeance on us.’’ One smirks.
His friend suggests that maybe Nauplius isn’t interested in anyone else because he takes to the Altar Boys: ‘’Assuming his Holy Temples have those.’’

See and Hear, on the streets of Caille. You heard it here first.

Through its spokesperson, Calyce Io, the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist has issued a press release in response to a recent report in the Gallentean tabloid See and Hear. The Church claims that its labor practices all fall within historical Amarrian and Khanid slaveholding traditions and that it does not engage in “kidnapping”. The Church continued that other allegations contained in the See and Hear article are “beneath contempt” and unworthy of response.

Olives the green oil from Intaki

See & Hear, Intaki, 13/11/YC122

It has been some time now since we visited the famous James Syagrius, and as stated in previous article about this worldly man we wondered what he was going to do now after he has retired. So here is a little update.

bild

Over the past two years, James has razed the centuries-old Bravaati family villa, much to the consternation of the local inhabitants. It has been replaced with a state-of-the-art complex in the neo-classical Garounian architectural style.

In addition, he is using advanced drone technology to perform tasks previously occupied by the local population, including agricultural work.

The new Villa has many colonnades and blends contemporary with traditional details. It lies in an ancient olive orchard on a peninsula extending into Lake Crucis in Intaki V’s northern hemisphere. In the mornings, the sun breaks pink over the visible mountains, and if observant, one can see the silhouettes of the fishermen pulling in their nets from the glittering waters.

James has expanded his holdings to encompass nearly the entire peninsula, including the northern coastline of the lake.

Without specifics using past information to guide your imagination, you may assume he has used various means to accomplish this acquisition. Making a few isolated villages anxious as they consider his future intentions.

He has also managed to gain permission to import a Ni Kunni variety of olive trees, an unusual concession from provincial officials considering Intakis strict environmental standards regarding non-native plants and animals. He regularly entertains willing officials, both local and planetary, using various methods to obtain their favour.

He has recently, through his legal representatives, applied for Intaki citizenship.

So, concluding, things are going well for the good man and we will keep you updated on things that might come about this magnificent and great business man.

Kirjuun!

11.13.123
JITA 4-4 Office

Kirjuun! is a independent publication supported by Home Guard veterans and by readers like you.

DEVELOPING: STARGATE OPERATORS FLOAT JOINING STATION TEAMSTERS IN STRIKE


Facing extremely heavy stargate loads inbound to Jita 4-4 and spillover into neighboring Perimeter, representatives from stargate labor commissions in The Forge have approached Kirjuun! voicing their sympathies towards the ongoing teamster strike in Jita.

The ongoing riots in Jita, spurned by capsuleers, may seem far removed from the labor of statesmen. But the extreme demands placed on workers within the system and the spillover to the rest of the constellation represents a new unreasonable burden placed upon the shoulders of Caldari labor. Already flet alienated and underrepresented by the previous PKN power bloc within the State, the Caldari works had patiently paused reformist demonstrations and clashes to allow time for the Ocean Faction to fulfill their promise to press for a comprehensive plan to overhaul the labor system within the State. Plans that have, save for limited provisions to allow for more open communication between workers groups, failed to materialize since the appointment of CEP the new chairman. While workers organizations from the Big Eight placed bids for reformist measures in September, jubilation turned to disillusionment as it became clear that non-corporation-affiliated “unofficial” workers unions, often more outspoken and radical over their statist union counterparts, would not be involved in the ongoing conversation over what is to be done for the working class of the State.

Aksesu Kitagawa, leader of one such unofficial workers affinity group that incorporates teamsters from each of the Big Eight in Jita 4-4, made no bones about speaking out publicly during ongoing demonstrations albeit under armed guard from soldiers identifying themselves as ‘disillusioned patriots & veterans from the Caldari Prime conflict.’

“The question of why these capsuleers are at our doors en masse is beyond us. This is a strike among the capitalist class, over a perceived threat toward their profits real or imaginary. I have no feelings of kinship toward them, as whatever ‘riot’ or ‘strike’ they launch is fundamentally not about solidarity and material conditions but a reflex of the market protecting its interests. In other words? I don’t give a ■■■■. But, by design, their defense of capsuleer capital has once again slid to the responsibility of the working class to accommodate. No more. I won’t sit idle back and be fed hollow calls for unity to keep us on the line and invested while we continue to be exploited under increasingly unreasonable conditions. It’s time that we hold the CEP accountable and see just how dedicated to reform they truly are.”

Article in Nakriskaya Gazeta, a news outlet of Nakri, Domain, Amarr Empire, dated 19 November YC123

FAILED MURDER ATTEMPT LEADS TO HIGHTENED SECURITY, ARRESTS

The ship of Miss Ishta Maleto, the betrothed of Master Alexandr deSilvestris, was attacked whilst en route to the Imperial Navy station in Nakri earlier this week, resulting in a crackdown on suspected terrorist cells in the system. Security Chief Sokolov stated that the attack “was not a random act of piracy”, but had the hallmarks of being “a deliberately targeted assassination attempt”. Although no-one has yet claimed responsibility, it is believed the assailants may have had connections to known heretical groups. Chief Sokolov’s statement also revealed that a number of arrests had been made in the immediate aftermath of the incident, including supporters and members of the Sedevacantist movement, criminal gangs, declared apostates, and other Enemies of Amarr, with other Persons of Interest being detained for questioning.

This publication understands that Miss Maleto suffered minor injuries in the attack, whilst two of the attackers were killed. Miss Maleto is recovering in hospital, and her handmaid has been treated for shock. Well-wishers and supporters have sent gifts and tokens of support, and a prayer vigil has been held outside the hospital since Miss Maleto’s arrival.

The Faithful and Loyal of Nakri are encouraged to report any suspicious and disloyal activity to the Imperial Security Services, so that together we may all help keep our Empire safe.

God Bless Nakri, God Bless Amarr, God Save The Empress.

Nadire Security Consultants Director summoned by District Security Council

Commonwealth Broadcasting Corporation – 20th November YC123/FC238 (State-broadcaster for the Northern Colonial Commonwealth)

It has been reported by our District Parliament Correspondents that Commander Edward Adams of the Nadire Security Consultants (NADSC) has met with District officials in response to a summons by the District Security Council.

Whilst it has not been confirmed, it is rumoured that the Security Council is concerned following recent high-profile departures and defections of former Consultancy personnel to the Triglavian Collective-aligned group ‘Stribog Clade’, in addition to those that assist in a mercenary capacity. Commander Adams own relationship with the head of ‘Stribog Clade’, known by their nom de guerre ‘Sahara Jackal’, has also been under scrutiny by several private organisations. This has not gone unnoticed by the authorities, especially as Commander Adams recently accepted Federal citizenship in July earlier this year.

When approached for comment, Commander Adams stated that this was a routine meeting with the Security Council to offer insights into current affairs affecting New Eden and not surrounding the controversy of former Consultants seeking employment with ‘Stribog Clade’.

What is the Shipping and Security Franchise?

One of the many franchises open to a District, the Shipping and Security Franchise system is a key part of how each Federal District regulates and maintains commercial shipping routes, customs, and space-lane security. Whilst normally this is delegated to the Federal Navy and Customs services, independent organisations such as NADSC have been increasingly brought on by Districts in recent years acting in minor roles such as advisers.

Due to the sensitive nature of the Shipping and Security Franchise, organisations charged with duties under it’s auspices are regularly vetted to ensure transparency within their dealings as well as their moral integrity. If they fail to meet the standards set by the issuing District, they can be stripped of authority and have their security clearances revoked. Whilst it is an infrequent occurrence for an organisation to suffer such a heavy penalty, those that find themselves revoked rarely get appointed to similar positions at the Federal level.

Other News

  • Pirate Activity in the Nadire District low-sector systems at ‘stable levels’ according to District observers. Independent analysts offer disagreement as to what ‘stable’ means.

  • Alleged Kybernaut-aligned Athanor-class refinery destroyed in Eruka by ‘Lux Invicta’ anti-Triglavian Coalition Tristan task force despite intervention by outlaw squadrons.

A newer Face in the Summit, making an older friend.

See & Hear, Caille, Gallente Prime, 20/11/YC122

Recently frequent Summiteers will have seen a relatively new face around the Fluid Router. Erica Munory, a pilot since may this past year, has been interacting a lot with many different capsuleers. She has since made a name for herself as a staunch supporter of the very Amarrian perspective on slave-holding and slave-trade.

bild

Munory has been seen offering other capsuleers all sorts of slaves or slave-services. With an entire catalog worth of different options for the state of her slaves. Ranging from different means of control, such as TCMCs or Vitoc, to physical options: we cite Miss Munory herself saying: ‘Slaves don’t need eyesight to do certain jobs’
That implies that for servants, there could be myriad of options to choose from should one wish to buy a personal slave, or a few thousand.

Much to no-one’s surprise, Nauplius was seen enthousiastically interacting with Erica. The pair engaging in sharing their views on slave-holding and methods of slave control. They have exchanged ideas and were seen complimenting each other’s holdings.

One wonders what else these two Slaver fanatics share, other than their ideologies.

It was also openly discussed on the Summit, that Miss Munory, were to attend the Saint Razhden’s day party thrown by LUMEN Directrix Lunarisse Aspenstar. The party is opened to blues-only, and so Erica was seen conspiring to bring Nauplius as her plus-one. Given that the Dresscode was more or less a masked ball, one wonders if the pair could have pulled it off.

Assuming they could have made it past the different security checkpoints, the pair of slavers would have been likely to have blown their cover at the first un-converted Matari they saw walking the premises. Having to profess their opinions loudly and proudly, what they think should happen to these, and we quote Nauplius: ‘Subhumans.’

Notedly, in the Summit, there are strong aversions to this open, blatant bragging of slavery and slave-holding. Aria Jenneth was quoted: ‘Even if you made it planetside, which would be very unlikely indeed. It would be even less likely for you to leave, Nauplius.’
Knowing LUMEN’s stance on slavery, and their previous wars against the former Red God zealot, that was no empty threat.

Foreign Nationals Arrested in Lamadentin following Customs Raid – District Court reaches judgement on Sedevacantist Church

20th November YC123/FC238

Lamadent Capital News Network

Six foreign nationals of Imperial citizenry have been arrested amongst several Sedevacantist members in a sting operation conducted by the Lamadent Space Authority.

Port Authority Captain Sebastienne ‘Baz’ Jacobs, already having seized significant quantities of weapons that were unlawfully attempted to be imported into the Tribunate earlier in the year, has given a statement to this news agency confirming the arrests were made in relation to an anti-terrorist operation following a tip from the Federal Intelligence Office, in co-operation with the Gallente Police Department’s Federal Anti-Terrorism Task Force. No further details on the arrests have been made public at this time – although the detainment of Imperial citizens on criminal charges has caused some concern in the capital of Lamadentin, especially those in the anti-Sedevacantist camp.

The Aeman Federal District Court has also reached a decision on the challenge made concerning the Sedevacantist Church, following a lengthy legal battle carried out by Minmatar focus groups and the All-Federation Caldari League.

The Honourable District Court Justice Mariana Oursler confirmed in a ruling supported with little dissent by Justices on the panel that the Sedevacantist Church was deemed to be an unconstitutional organisation, citing the threat to civil liberties of Roussillon’s Minmatar populace amongst other arguments made by the protestors and their supporters. Consequently, Justice Oursler confirmed that the Church has been proscribed as an unlawful organisation under Federal anti-terrorism legislation and membership of the Church is now considered to be a District criminal offence in the Aeman District. It is unclear if the Church plans to appeal the decision made today.

Both the Roussillon Sheriff’s Office and Tribunate Gendarmerie have deployed additional officers to reinforce existing shifts and have cancelled annual leave for most circumstances. Armed patrols have become commonplace in the capital and in Roussillon since the outbreak of violence several months ago, with fears that the decision could spark even further civil unrest. Offers from the Gallente Police Department for assistance have been politely but firmly refused by the Tribunate Government, citing the need for local law enforcement to be at the forefront of policing, rather than Federal agencies.

Instances of violence have thankfully been few and far between, with a speech given by a recently naturalised Caldari capsuleer immigrant to the Federation having been cited in having calmed tensions in the member state. Sceptics have questioned the wisdom in a foreigner having intervened in such a manner considering the foreign nature of the Sedevacantist Church, but the message was well received by the majority of anti-Sedevacantist protestors.

A Note from L-CNN: We at the Lamadent Capital News Network support the decision of the Aeman Federal District Court and hope that once more our citizens that we serve can rebuild the peace and prosperity for our homeland.

A letter from Bataav.

See & Hear, Intaki, 21/11/YC122

After the article about Mr James Syagrius, I have received a letter from Mr Bataav that he wished me to publish.

I read the details of Mr Syagrius’ impact on the region surrounding his property on Intaki Prime with a great deal of disappointment and sadness, if not surprise.

Mr Syagrius is not a stranger to the Intaki Liberation Front, our paths having crossed repeatedly over the years.

Those interactions have not always been as amicable as either side might have wished, so when I first learned of his intention to retire to Intaki Prime I was hopeful. Hopeful that there may have been an opportunity for a genuine friendship and mutual respect to develop.

I’m obviously disappointed then, at his behaviour and treatment of the property he has chosen to invest in, and I find myself doubting his motives.

Why?

Why choose Intaki Prime? I don’t recall him being a frequent visitor. I’m not aware of a circle of close friends or family on the surface. As I understand it, the leadership of the ILF were likely his most regular contacts in system, and we were always resolute opponents when it came to matters of Intaki Politics.

We know he came not for the architecture, flora or fauna, if he was simply going to remove any traces of what came before, replacing it with buildings, plantlife and technologies that are not in harmony with their surroundings.

Intaki Prime is a place of great natural beauty, and the mark that has been left upon it is irreparable.

Why?

I suspect the answer is simply an explicit lack of respect for Intaki, and because in the spirit of shallow one-upmanship, Mr Syagrius believes there is little that can be done to stop him.

We will follow how and if this escalates.

Strange new flyers have been seen plastered all across the colonies and the bulkheads of the Orbital Yard in Eugales. The flyers depict Oveg Drust being censored with the UNF logo crossed out.

The other side of the flyer provides a detailed description of;

  • Oveg Drust being a client of Lauralite Brezia and developing an infatuation, bordering on obsession of the Colonial Director and CEO of United Neopian Federation.
  • His plan of using his position within the DED and the Arcology incident as a ruse to get closer to Eugales and Ms Brezia herself.
  • And finally his plot to destroy the UNF so that Ms Brezia would have no choice but to submit to the Commander’s will.

LAMADENT III, SINQ LIASON

Brandishing a menacing-looking rifle in the air, standing on the steps of his now-closed and barricaded church, Reverend Balash Kavad of the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist proclaimed, “All the lawyers and judges who think they can banish sedevacantism from this land need to learn a new phrase: Prototype Nuclear Small Arms.” Adjusting his clothing to reveal a wire connected from his rifle to his chest, Fr. Kavad continued, “And those filthy Minmatar subhumans who think they have won any kind of victory over us need to learn another phrase: Fail Deadly.” Following this performance, Fr. Kavad retired inside his church while his social media accounts posted what appeared to be a capsuleer user interface element indicating possession of 141 units of Prototype Nuclear Small Arms in the Federation Customs station near Lamadent I:

Social media sleuths quickly determined that the 15 jumps indicated in the image marks the distance between the Gallente system of Lamadent and the home of de facto sedevacantist leader and capsuleer Nauplius in the Amarr system of Mehatoor, suggesting that the image originated in Nauplius’s own computers. Pilot Nauplius has frequently boasted of his possession of Prototype Nuclear Small Arms and has threatened to deploy the devices, which originate in rare Angel Cartel manufacturing facilities in deep space and can command multi-million ISK prices on the capsuleer market.

For its part, the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist through its spokesperson Calyce Io claimed to have dissolved its Aeman Constellation branch in response to what it called “unjust lawsuits” and signed over ownership of its lavish church in the impoverished township of Roussillon to Fr. Kavad in his capacity as a private citizen. Although in the process of evacuating Aeman’s sedevacantists to the Jin-Mei constellation of Ysiette, the Sedevacantist Church said that Fr. Kavad had voluntarily stayed behind to continue performing the Imperial Rite in Roussillon in perpetuity, that being his right and duty as an ordained priest. Questioned regarding Prototype Nuclear Small Arms in particular, Ms. Io claimed that Fr. Kavad possessed rights of self-defense and his church having been officially dissolved, was no longer breaking Federation law. Her voice taking on a taunting tone, Ms. Io concluded by saying, “Show me where it is written that Prototype Nuclear Small Arms explicitly are illegal in Lamadent.”

Authorities have given a muddled reaction to Fr. Kavad’s threats. Having established a perimeter around the Roussillon Church, they seemed reluctant to take additional steps, perhaps unconvinced as to whether the Reverend had really smuggled in Prototype Nuclear Small Arms (or just a prop) and what sort of evacuations would be necessary had he gotten hold of the obscure weapons. A Geiger counter quickly rushed in from the capital yielded slightly elevated readings surrounding the church, however, given Roussillon’s extensive history of industrial pollution such readings must be inconclusive. Given the Sedevacantist Church’s apocalyptic theology, it is believed that the church building may house substantial survival preparations, enough for Fr. Kavad and perhaps a small number of additional stay-behind sedevacantists to hold out for years. At this writing, authorities were beginning to evacuate tenements across from the church (much to the groaning of their desperately impoverished residents) while attempts to calculate the yield and capabilities of Prototype Nuclear Small Arms continued.
