Rumors! Gossip! Tabloids!

Some disturbing rumors have started to leak out of Pochven, for the most part they are confined to local newspapers and sensationalist rags but the narrative around the stories might be compelling to some. Apparently a Leshak bearing Kybernaut colors had been witnessed traveling throughout known space before mysteriously vanishing, most likely through the network of wormholes and filaments that Triglavians often carry.

That would be unnerving enough, but the ship had apparently been sporting a mix of Triglavian and rogue drone technology. Exhibiting advanced radar systems and adaptive armor systems that augment the already lightweight but sturdy Triglavian armor plating. Those who claim to survive a violent encounter with the ship often report a nearly sentient swarm of drones being unleashed upon them in retribution, sometimes sporting drone models as advanced as the Geckos developed in the secret ghost sites around New Eden.

Quietly, some even claim that these mechanical abominations are occasionally sighted roaming the forests of worlds nearby.

overheard discussions near external drydock 4, Eugales VI Orbial Yards

“Gods and spirits, look at that…”

“First time getting a good look at her?”

“I’d heard the damage was bad but… The Director’s brought Wellspring back in bad shape before… this is a completely different level.”

“Some bastard jammed her capsule interface with a custom spoof of some sort, one of her inner circle crew.”

“Damn… well, bet whoever they are, they aren’t having a good day with their contract details.”

“Doubt it indeed.”

“■■■■ though, there’s multiple sections that are through and through damage, full punctures… all the Cap Banks are practically slag… the reactor’s fragged… how the hell did she manage to get it back here at all?”

“Director overrode every safety and ran surviving damage control teams ragged to hold her together for an emergency jump.”

“Must have lost more in the translation…”

“Probably.”

“This is a full gut and retool job. Might be cheaper just to buy a new one, if one can be found.”

“You know how the director is, she’s sentimental. Plus the investment in Wellspring to begin with has a lot of custom gear anyway that would need replacing on a new hull so cost balances out.”

“Just glad we have the extra help from those contractors she brought in. Makes this a bit less of a turn around job.”

MIROITEM VI, SINQ LIASON

The Amarrian Church’s Office of the Bishop for Aeman Constellation, Sinq Liason has released a “Syllabus of Errors” purporting to list faults with the branch of the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist operating in Lamadent III. The “syllabus” does not directly challenge the theology of the Sedevacantist Church, which holds that the Amarr Throne became vacant during the reign of Heideran VII, who issued the pacifistic Pax Amarria. Instead, the sedevacantists are criticized for such “heresies” as “Use of Quafe Girls as Scripture Readers”, “Allowing Extreme Form-Fiitting Clothing in Church”, “Substituting Holy Water for Quafe”, and “Erotic Slave-Girl Holoimages in Church”. The Amarrian Church’s missive implicated @Laurienne_Quafegirl_Cherbourg as the probable culprit for the Quafe-related “heresies”, stating that she was recorded in the “Summit” channel discussing church strategy with sedevacantist leader Nauplius.

Sedevacantist Church spokesperson Calyce Io rejected the allegations of heresy. She pointed out that the so-called Quafe girls are properly ordained to the minor order of lector and their micro-atomically thin, form-fitting clothing was legal under the pre-Heideran canon law accepted by the sedevacantists — not until prolonged contact with the Gallente Federation were clothing tightness regulations added to the traditional Amarrian body coverage laws. The coming “True Emperor”, said Ms. Io, would have to decide for himself whether to regulate clothing similarly; in the meantime, she claimed, the sedevacantists would continue to adapt to such elements of Gallentean culture as aid proselytizing without compromising church doctrine.

Similarly, continued Ms. Io, the Sedevacantist Church does not consecrate Quafe, but rather consecrates water into holy water in typical Amarr fashion and then adds carbonation and Quafe syrup later for the benefit of Gallente congregations. Finally, she said, the so-called “Erotic Slave-Girl Holoimages” are actually the “Minmatar mistresses” of church members, but because the Gallente Federation does not allow slavery, the mistresses remain legally owned by church leader Nauplius and held in his hanger in Mehatoor, whence they are projected into the church lounges and lobby areas where church members and their holo-mistresses can mingle. During the service, the mistresses are projected into the balcony level of the sanctuary — the only section of the sanctuary where Minmatar are permitted. According to the sedevacantists, the holo-mistresses are a preview of the rewards that will be available to the “Chosen” once the “True Emperor” begins a new Reclaiming, and are only provided to the most dedicated church members.

The Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist declined to comment on outstanding legal action involving its Lamadent branch.

CYBER ATTACKS HIT NAKRI

Cyber attacks across the system of Nakri struck a number of institutions and companies today, causing serious disruption. The full extent of damage is not yet known, nor the full list of victims, though it is understood that private companies and enterprises across a wide range of sectors, from supply and logistics to security were targeted. Amongst the latter, recently troubled Private Military Contractor, Gagana Defence Solutions, was hit, raising concern over the company. Facilities and interests belonging to the two Noble Families of Nakri, deSilvestris and Koval, also suffered attacks, though neither family has yet released a statement revealing what, if any, damage was done.
The identity of the perpetrators has not been confirmed, but initial reports from victims and witnesses claim that a significant number of infected systems displayed the word “Nadezdha”, and links between this attack and previous incidents across Nakri involving the use of this word are inevitably being drawn. Security Forces in Nakri have launched an investigation, vowing to “identify and apprehend the person or persons responsible”.

NAKRI, DOMAIN

Posters bearing the slogan Престол вакантен along with propaganda for the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist have appeared on warehouses and other properties owned by House deSilvestris in Nakri System overnight. Each poster features the slogan, which translated means “The Throne is Vacant” along with a depiction of Lord Alexandr deSilvestris, brother of capsuleer @Ekaterina_deSilvestris, together with his bride whom the poster describes as a Minmatar criminal slave and symbol of House deSilvestris’s degeneration. Experts suggest that the sedevacantists, who believe that the Amarr Throne became vacant with the publication of the pacifistic Pax Amarria, are continuing their program of stirring up resentment among Amarrian commoners for their holders whom the sedevacantists portray as no longer cultivating their ancient, holy lineages and thus no longer worthy of reverence.

The Sedevacantist Church through its spokesperson Calyce Io claimed responsibility for the posters. Although Ms. Io declined to state the means by which the posters were put up, the sedevacantists are known to have used TCMC-controlled slaves to cause public disturbances in the past, and TCMC experts say that clandestine distribution of posters is within the capability of a conditioned, TCMC-controlled slave, of which the sedevacantists have an enormous supply thanks to their sponsorship by capsuleer Nauplius. Asked whether the Sedevacantist Church bore any responsibility for recent hacking attacks in Nakri, Ms. Io replied in the negative, although she added, “There is no hope as long as the Throne is Vacant. Престол вакантен.”

QUARENTINE IMPOSED ON TORINOS V FOLLOWING TERRAIN BIOADAPTION


The Caldari Navy has imposed strict quarantine measures on the troubled Torinos V lunar mining colony as a result of anarchist terror bombings on Caldari infrastructure. The combination of nanoforming swarm hives and bioadaptive mutaplasmids appear consistent with rapid terraforming measures utilized by the Triglavian collective launched against inhabited worlds. The effects have proven immensely destructive on the strategic value of the corporate facilities located there as the moon continues to shift to an entirely alien climate and ecosystem.

It is unknown how the attack was conducted or if the weapon has the potential to mutate and bioadapt those exposed to it. The Caldari Navy and PKN Interstellar officials have officially requested assistance from AEGIS anti-subversive specialists to contain the ongoing threat.

//Bodycam footage – Angel Cartel raid on Chaneya VII. Monastery of His Holy Peace//

The footage is silent for the first thirty seconds. It’s dark and grainy, a small part of the bottom left portion of the screen is taken up by a camouflaged helmet, clearly the user’s. In front of him stand two great golden double doors. He stacks next to it as the sound comes online.

“Breaching charge!” A shout goes down the line, several other men and women can be seen. Wearing Republic Fleet uniforms and carrying standard issue Republic Fleet small arms. A woman runs up from the back, placing two small bricks of explosive on the door.

“Prepare for breach, cover!” The camera goes dark as the user crouches and turns.

“Breaching” The woman yells. Immediately a low thump can be heard, the user turns and boots the door. It crashes open, revealing a garden courtyard cast in golden light. Colonnades on all sides and a fountain in the middle.

“To the chapel! Azrael has them herded in there.”

The user and the other soldiers move swiftly, professionally. It’s possible to see his weapon up at the low ready. They move straight ahead, to the rear of the gardens. As they move it’s possible to see the bodies of two guards in deep pools of crimson. One’s throat has been slashed, the other lays on his back, a knife still buried in his eye socket.

“■■■■” A voice can be heard, thick with mirth “Azrael doesn’t ■■■■ around.”

“Quiet” a gruffer voice says. “Keep to the mission. We’re here to rescue the Matari.”

They pass through the doors at the end, down a long corridor lit with stained glass. At the end of the corridor is the chapel. The door flanked with statues of Imperial saints. The user stacks on one side of the door. He nods to the soldier on the opposite side before slicing the pie and pushing through.

The chapel is a traditional Khadorian design, flooded with a low golden light which leaves the alcoves and area behind the altar cloaked in darkness. Imperial flags and flags of House Khador hand either side of the altar. There are about twenty rows of pews, the brothers and sisters of the monastery take up the pews, heads down as if in prayer. Silent but for the occasional whimper, as the soldier passes them a few can be seen shaking, shivering. He steps over a wet pool as he passes one of them.

“Azrael!” The gruff voice calls out “Stop ■■■■■■■ around, is the product in place?” A small laugh rings out from the darkness behind the altar. Two glowing yellow eyes appear as a figure steps forward, dressed in slave’s work uniform. The sleeves stained a dark red. Azrael’s skin is coal black as she steps into the light, it fades to very light brown as she steps forward.

“Yea, hun… they’re all ready by the dropsite. Giving thanks for their new found freedom and planning their new lives in Pator. All ready for ya’ll heroes of the republic to step in and save em!” She lifts a bottle, sacramental wine, half empty.

“Wanna drink? Figure we can have some fun with them before we get outta here…” She gestures to the prostate clergy, a wry smirk on her face.

“I reject this notion that humanity are destined to adopt augmentations and implants as this 'advancement” of our species’ quality of life. Such things I call “Jove Talk” as it the very same logic that landed the Jovians where they are today… Jovians were disgusted with what the limitations and cons of being a human being entailed and tried to run away from it by mutilating themselves with augmentations and genetic engineering. And did all this lead to some perfect and efficient society? No, it lead to their society’s utter destruction! It lead to their next generation being cursed with an illness that their ‘advancements’ made them vulnerable to!"

Do I condemn such technology when it comes to replacing a lost limb or retired organ? It be unfair of me to say so… But I find it troublesome when human beings trade in their natural flesh for metal and wire in pursuit of some advancement. Someone that thinks like that will continue to replace their flesh with machinery until it must be debated whether or not they are a human, or a machine."

“Do note that I have said that we shouldn’t fear such technology if no better alternative is present. What I am teaching is not to treat such technology should be seen as taboo and those that currently utilize such tech are impure humans. What I teach is that we should come to embrace ourselves as human beings and to accept the cons and limitations of our corporal forms and not go on a mad chase to try to ‘improve’ what the human being is. Prarimily because such an endeavour would be naturally sabotaged by human error.”

GAGANA ANNOUNCE SIGNIFICANT LOSSES. SPECULATION OVER POTENTIAL RESCUE BID

Nakri based Private Military Contractor, Gagana Defence Solutions, today announced large financial losses in the wake of serious difficulties recently suffered by the company. Reports and commentary from experts and analysts in the sector have centred on the impact that contract related difficulties may have had on the company, and these, combined with a major cyber-attack across Nakri only days ago, are believed to have dealt a fatal blow to a once successful operator.

Speculation is rife, however, that a buyer may be found who can offer a rescue package to Gagana. It is known that the contractor has often been favoured in the past by the local noble Koval family, principally to cover security arrangements at that family’s many facilities in the system. The Kovals have not yet commented on the matter, and whilst they do appear as the most likely party to make any sort of bid for Gagana, it is not impossible that another group, including a rival military contractor, may also seek to sweep up Gagana’s assets.

NAKRI SECURITY CHIEF ADDRESSES SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST NOBLE FAMILY

Security Chief Evgeniy Sokolov took questions today on the recent attacks of vandalism against the noble deSilvestris Family, which has seen properties belonging to the well-respected and ancient Nakri family being defaced with a slogan known to be an attempted rallying call of the so-called Sedevacantist Church, a heretical and treasonous criminal organisation, denounced by a large number of Organisations and groups loyal to Empress Catiz and the Amarr Empire.

“The motivation of these misguided smear attempts against a loyal and beloved Noble family in our system appears to be a reaction against the relationship in which a scion of the deSilvestris family is involved,” stated Chief Sokolov. “Whilst it is not my place to comment on the private affairs of any family or individual, nor to pass judgement on any person’s apparent feelings of resentment and jealousy towards such affairs, the fact of the matter is that this group, quite clearly based outside of our system of Nakri, is spreading heretical beliefs and attempting to undermine the security and stability of our home. This is an act that will not go unpunished, and anyone involved in such activities, either directly or indirectly, whosoever they may be, as well as anyone found supporting or harbouring any notions of disloyalty to Her Imperial Amarrian Majesty Empress Catiz, the Empire, or legitimate Imperial institutions, will be tracked down and dealt with accordingly.”
Asked if there was any suggestion of a link between the actions of the heretics and the similarly recent “Nadezdha” movement in Nakri, Chief Sokolov said, “the ability of this foreign group to undertake sophisticated actions such as the recent attempted hackings is doubtful. However, although we have no direct evidence that the two groups are linked, it is entirely possible that there is a relationship, and this is forming part of our ongoing investigation”.
The deSilvestris family has been approached for a comment.

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

Customs agents in Nakri have siezed hundreds of posters intended for illicit distribution in Nakri by the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist. According to Amarr authorities, routine inspection on the baggage of a Brutor male with Freed Slave status travelling from Mehatoor revealed the posters, which feature a painting of Nakri nobleman Alexandr deSilvestris romantically intertwined with his Thukker bride in a pose and style similar to that common to the covers of smutty Gallentean romance novels. The posters were impounded on the grounds of Amarrian morality laws, but further investigation revealed they contained the slogan Престол вакантен or “The Throne is Vacant” along with other text supporting the Sedevacantist Church, which believes the line of legitimate Amarr Emperors was broken with Emperor Heideran’s pacifist policies and which has been trying to win over the commoners and vassals of those holders it considers overly libertine.

The Brutor carrying the posters having been taken into custody, interrogation revealed little, as he would only repeat Престол вакантен and was non-responsive when asked whether others were bringing sedevacantist posters into Nakri. Despite his paperwork indicating a Freed status, authorities suspect him to be an slave illegally held by the sedevacantists. Medical imaging of the Brutor revealed the presence of a Transcranial Microcontroller, a device known to be favored by the de facto leader of the Sedevacantist Church, the capsuleer Nauplius. Customs authorities promised tightened security as a response to sedevacantist infiltration in and around Nakri.

The Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist declined to acknowledge the arrested slave but stated that their slave supply is vast and the loss of one agent would not stop the distribution of what they called their second printing of posters targeting House deSilvestris.

Local Delinquent Sought by State Police for Defacement of Corporate Property


Spaceplane Patrol officers in cooperation with Lai dai Protection services on Torrinos V’s lunar Mining Colony are in the process of tracking down the culprit responsible for the recent trend of corporate property being vandalized and defaced.

((Art made by @Alen_Asques))

Recovered security footage shows the culprit to be nothing more than a small girl in her mid-teens with short amber colored hair defacing corporate property with profane graffiti that borrows symbolism from the Guristas Pirates. While authorities are still searching for an identity, the culprit has gone by the allias “Okiku”, a name left as signatures across multiple pieces of graffiti.

Most of the culprit’s graffiti can be found in scheduled and out of the way spots, however the culprit has progressively gotten more bold with several more high-profile attacks on corporate property, having tagged entrances to ration depots, reprocessing plants and even the sides of public monorails with Guristas symbolism. The most recent and “Last straw” for authorities however came in the form of a stylized and lewd depiction of the CBD Corporation’s CEO Imanima Hinpas being gagged and ‘pegged’ by Lai dai’s CEO Alakoni Ishanoya wearing rabbit ears atop the walls of a apartment complex for CBD corporate executives in the commerce district.

How the culprit managed to pull this off is an entirely different case being investigated with the belief that the culprit had assistance either in the form of a supporting gang or staff. With the recent terrorist bombings and general unrest, authorities are already in the process of stepping up security tenfold and expect this vandal to be swiftly found or have their actions permanently halted by the Increased presence of security throughout the colony.

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

Rival costume enthusiasts throw candy, engage in fisticuffs.

Clouds painted by laser light wrapped a late-night melee on the 351st floor of Garoun Investment Bank’s retail plaza in New Hueromont’s Sky Crown Marina District. Only recently opened to the public, Sky Crown Marina caps development efforts by Lirsautton business interests looking to serve local Jin-Mei artists and entrepreneurs.

“Attracted by this city’s large Vherokior community, which they admire as simultaneously foreign and familiar, young JMPop, JMVid, and JMRPG professionals traded Lirsautton for New Hueromont in great numbers,” observed an analyst for the investment bank. “While intentionally leaving behind social hierarchies, these professionals retain a desire for familiar food, living amenities, and shopping experiences. The Lirsautton offices of Quafe, Egonics, and Garoun field majority ethnic Jin-Mei workforces. Task forces in those offices have therefore joined to bring their perspectives to service markets here on Luminaire.”

“They’re conspiring to take our customers through unfair competition,” groused a native breadmaker.

Last night’s festivities at One Wing Angels Host Club began with synchronized performances and bright, cheerful music common to the JMPop genre. Dancing across three terraces protected by polyglass wind domes, patrons enjoyed laser projections in the city’s mist depicting characters and scenes from famous JMRPG titles. “Our business name relates to Fantastic Finale,” said Tanagura Amoii, establishment proprietor. “Developed by Egonics Lirsautton X, the franchise is particularly beloved by our youth. However, in hindsight, the name might have also raised other associations.”

“Sang Do never think!” insisted the proprietor’s secretary. “They’ll open castle gates during a siege to get the right angle of sunlight onto their morning fruit bowls. Of course the name raised ‘other associations!’”

Believing the establishment to be one of “theirs,” members of a costume player’s association styled after the Serpentis narcotics cartel joined the party. Inside, they discovered that a rival association also believed the establishment was property of “allies.” Chanting “can-dy-Sa-bik,” Serpentis players threw hard candies at Blood cultist players.

Physical confrontation followed.

“How does narco trash even reach the 351st floor!?” Vivienne Eautaine demanded. “We don’t really bite people, you know. We might not all be Jin-Mei, but even those who aren’t still have technical and creative jobs. Narco-trash injects itself with engine solvent. That makes them cyber-gangsters? Please! Their skin is falling off, they’ve lost their teeth, their eyes don’t focus, and everything they say is nonsense. Tram med scans should have picked them out for intervention; certainly, superstructure biometrics should never have allowed them into a lift. I’m surprised those rotten bones handled the acceleration.”

“Drug addiction in and of itself is not grounds for medical intervention,” insisted Oulein Sal, Director of Superstructure and Transportation Network Biometrics.

“The mural of conscious thought is our wall,” insisted a member of the Serpentis player’s association. “Jovian sex trafficker moon base server. Caravucchi, people!”

“The candies were good,” observed Holo Jockey Iridia Palladium. “Not laced. Probably stolen from the supermarket on the 286th floor. It’s not like narco trash can even pay for engine solvent without pulling out a kidney. Any of them that tried to eat the candy lost the rest of their teeth.”

“Saan Go excel at managing details,” Amoii opined. “But the upper caste must keep its eyes on the big picture. Hei Shi’an Province depends on the hospitality business. Sometimes, guests detract from experiences of other guests. We partnered with CreoDron’s Lirsautton I facility to build a new line of incident response drones. They offer firm but effective non-lethal solutions to recalcitrants. I couldn’t be more pleased with last night’s results. Not even drug addicts received medically significant internal injuries.”

“We look forward to expanding our automated riot suppression lines,” concurred a CreoDron spokeswoman. “Pre-orders for Bugbear RS-1, 2, and 300 models have been brisk. Bugbear RS-400’s will become available in the second quarter of next year. We are working with federal authorities to ensure compliance with export regulations in an effort to serve unexpected early demand from State territory.”

Audio Leaked of Heated CBD, Lai Dai Disagreement Over Toronos V Colony Response


Audio anonymously released to Kirjuun hinted towards divisions between CBD and Lai Dai regional leadership regarding measures to contain the quarantine imposed on the Torrinos V, Moon V lunar colony and production facility.

The audio, if authentic, seems to suggest an intense disagreement where Spacelane Patrol corporate administrators presented evidence tying the supposid disease outbreak to “Gurista-supplied anarchists working with ultranationalist sympathizers” as well as the discovery of specialized warclone military equipment recovered from raids on terrorist compounds.

Spacelane Patrol firmly advocated for authorizing the Navy to conduct sustained orbital bombardment of the anarchist districts in the interest of containing the threat before spreading to further locations. Lai Dai, the holder of the facility, fiercely disagreed with the destruction of their local assets before strongly suggesting requisitioning the services of PKN-affiliated Eifyr and Co. to work in tandem with PKN biochemical experts to “evaluate the effect and scale of the outbreak on the local population and the infrastructure” under guard from a joint CBD, LDPS, and Tronhadar Free Guard task force to ensure their safety and suppress subversive anarchist elements should they arise.

Kirjuun! cannot confirm the authenticity of the recording at this time. As of the publishing of this broadcast, it is still unknown what the situation on the ground in Torrinos is though several small craft were able to evade security checkpoints to lend humanitarian assistance to those in the colony isolated by the blockade. Reports of life on the colony are limited, with shipments from the mass driver cargo sled halting immediately following quarantine.

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.”
