-BEGIN-

God made this land of abundance of New Eden for us.
We were made to exalt His works through faith in our creator.
The heavens were made ours to claim through righteousness.
Instead we have sullied the stars with sin and misery.
Exchanging hope in God for the works of the Great Deceiver.
The price to be paid is a wage that can only be extolled with death.
We who walk the path of the Deathless must condemn a world corrupted with lies.
For the world is nothing compared to the truths of God and the lands beyond.
Our salvation will require sacrifice.
For the lies of the Great Deceiver have ensnared many.
We must prepare our fingers for battle and our hands for war.
The evils of this world will only be abjured with blood.
You will be called bandit.
You will be called outlaw.
You will be called traitor.
No nation will be your haven.
No flags will adorn you.
No kin will shelter you.
Only standing together will we endure the trials set forth by God for us.
Do not look to me for prophecy.
Do not look to me for liberation.
Do not look to me for salvation.
I am not your leader.
I am your servant.
Without you all I am nothing.
I can give you no promise of hope but ash upon the wind.
I can give you no portents but the coming of the storm.
I can give you no assurance but that I am the herald of war and my steed is death.
Anoint yourselves with faith and put on the armour of God.
Make ready for the days to come.
Go in peace with God and each other.

All-Mountain Labor-Nationalist Convention Endorses Upwell Cloning Program


Defying opposition from union representatives of the Ocean Winds Corporate Community, militant hardliners of the JSL-Partnership’s delegation to the State Workers Union delivered the following statement in response to leaked proposals from Upwell Consortium for the mass-adoption of cloning technology.

The modern foundations of the JSL-Partnership lies in Kaalakiota and Sukuuvestaa’s mutual cooperation developing crucial advancements in cloning technology to safeguard the security and prosperity of the Caldari State-- the fruits of which have been criminally underappreciated by other members of our Union for the role it played in the defense of the State during the Triglavian confrontation. Despite their efforts, there was not sufficient material support from non-partnership members to plug the holes in our defenses which led to catastrophic loses still felt by countless members of our Union and their families. We did not do enough, reach far enough, to avert this ultimately preventable tragedy. While Kaalakiota and Sukuuvestaa were carrying the cost of our continued defense and prosperity on their backs our military, logistics, and industrial capacity was hamstrung by negligent liberal policies that sacrificed our strength and unity for the pursuit of foreign capital and maintaining the status quo. We cannot, and will not, make the same mistake by denying the State a critical strategic edge for the sake of petty internal power politics under the guise of ‘traditional values.’

The proposal put forward by Upwell offers the State a clear path to reconstitute Caldari Labor into a modern institution unmatched by any workforce yet envisioned by our enemies. It offers a plan to cast aside our inefficiencies and reinvest that capital to the benefit of each worker. It empowers us to serve our State with eternal youth and vigor in the factories and on the battlefield as citizen-soldiers. It offers nothing less than the emergence of the New Caldari Statesman that will be the vanguard of a new era for our people. One that denies the inevitability of old age and the decrepit servility that comes with it. Where industrial accidents won’t bring death and economic hardship for your family in your absence. Where each worker is the master of our collective socioeconomic future and will live to see the benefits of their efforts in the coming decades and centuries. Centuries guarded by legions of Caldari workers with untold eons of experience working towards the betterment of our people and a future for our children. To deny this future out of fear or apprehension isn’t merely cowardice, its treason.

The All-Mountain Labor Convention stands united in our support for this measure. We recognize legitimate concerns about some of the proposed details of Chemal Tech’s prototype, and the influence of non-State firms in its development. That is why we advocate for JSL to flex their extensive experience in clone modernization and take a greater hand working with Upwell on its development, while facilitating co-development with loyal representatives of the State Workers Union. That way all legitimate grievances might be addressed, and this technology can mature with input from Caldari workers who best know what will aid them in their professional role. I have no doubts that this would be to the benefit of the State, Upwell, and Caldari labor. Before I conclude I wish to thank Onnuta Ahvala and Caldari Constructions for hosting this assembly and honoring us with their hospitality. Additionally I want to thank members of the Labor-Nationalist militia for their work combating UCF provocateurs and monitoring workplaces for signs of foreign subversion. As always we reaffirm our commitment to the three tenants of Caldari reconstruction-- Rationing, Repatriation, Conscription.

For the State.

The Gallente Federation claims itself a beacon of human progress.
Champions of human wisdom and liberty.
There is no wisdom greater than that of God.
There is no liberty but freedom from the lies of the Great Deceiver.
To claim otherwise is nothing but hubris.
In their hubris the people of the Federation have built nothing but a new Gomorrah.
They exalt idols and celebrities when they should praise the saints and martyrs.
They exalt materialism when they should promote asceticism.
They exalt the flesh but debase the spirit.
In their arrogance the Gallente Federation declares itself righteous.
The truly righteous are always humble before God.
There is no humility to be found in the Federation.
There are only the excessions of spiritual death to be found there.
The Federation progresses only off a cliff into the abyss.
Democracy and freedom are the causes used to pillory the weak in the name of colonialism and imperialism.
Free enterprise nothing more than an excuse to exploit the poor and vulnerable.
Individuality and the glorification of the self distract only from the truths of God and the spirit.

The Caldari State was built on the promise of a society free from foreign oppression.
Now the Caldari State only oppresses itself.
The workers of the State cry out for hope and relief but are answered only with violence, massacre, and repression.
Corporate leaders no longer consider themselves servants of the people but instead promote injustice in the pursuit of wealth and power.
Fear of the State has replaced a fear of God.
The greater good of corporate power and control has replaced the greater good of people and society.
Meritocracy is used as the excuse for those born into power and privilege to retain it.
The best among the State reduced to serfdom and forced to toil in obscurity for a corporate aristocracy.
Patriotism is no longer considered as a love for others and a willingness to defend them but as a hatred for those who are different.
Drums are beaten for war and to rally around the flag but not to rally in the name of God.
Honour and tradition has been replaced with the Janus-faced and double dealers.
The veneer of business as usual is a thin facade for a society of fear, paranoia, and suspicion of those with the the potential for betrayal.
Corporate executives demand fealty and obeisance but we should only bow our heads before God.

YC126.04.27 // ATHOUNON VI


Amidst the tense standoff between the Federal garrison and corporate invaders on the Bellevigne front, a new wave of chaos has erupted with the infiltration of Guristas insurgents into the Serthoulde constellation. Reports indicate that raiding parties have begun filtering into the Athounon system, launching probing strikes against both space and planetary infrastructure.

The sudden diversion provided by the Guristas marauders has been swiftly exploited by UCPF and CorpSec units, who have launched a coordinated assault through the northern battle lines. Dubbed ‘Operation Kutuoto Rokosabai’ by Taayusaka military strategists, the offensive has caught Federal defenders off guard, with many of their forces already redirected to repel the pirate incursions targeting the capital.

Reports from the frontlines depict a scene of frantic activity, as Federal troops scramble to re-establish defense lines against the advancing corporate onslaught. Simultaneously, sporadic sightings of hostiles, both Caldari and Gurista, have been reported across Bellevigne territories, exacerbating the already dire situation.

Critics of the Taayusaka Corporation wasted no time in accusing the corporation of collaboration with the pirate raiders, suggesting a sinister alliance aimed at destabilizing Federal defenses. However, corporate representatives were quick to dismiss such claims, vehemently denying any complicity and asserting their commitment to ensuring that the Gurista invaders face swift retribution for their brazen transgression.

SAYR Galactic Hosts Myrskaa All-Mountain Labor Convention


This evening workers of the Kaalakiota and Suukuvesta wing of the Caldari State Workers Union, collectively identifying as the All-Mountain Workers Committee, have announced a new partnership with SAYR Galactic to hold an urgent labor convention hosted in the city of Myrskaa. The Myrskaa-Ashiiga-Ruusaka Greater Metropolitan Area remains a JSL Partnership stronghold hosting more than 40 million Kaalakiota and SuVee workers. Due to expansive reconstruction efforts following the Kyonoke outbreak, it remains one of the highest concentrations of State Workers in the cluster with an atypically high percentage of laborers and technicians relative to the number of local managers and executives.

Hosted throughout the week, the Myrskaa All-Mountain Labor Convention aims to gather together disparate elements of the JSL-wing of the State Workers Union to determine a clear policy towards the adoption of Upwell’s advanced cloning technology. Compared to workers of TNO and PKN affiliated groups, JSL remains divided on the proposal put forward by the Upwell Consortium. Kaalakiota, in particular, hosts a large element of radicals struggling to synthesize the ideals of Caldari sovereignty with the need for a strong, technologically advanced State backed by an empowered Workers Union. Suukuvesta is expected to be a more temperate, stabilizing force capable of steering the Convention toward a moderate, workable policy. Both camps however aim to advocate for JSL utilizing both corporation’s experience in advanced clone technology to take a larger part bringing Upwell’s proposal to the Caldari State. With PKN and TNO at loggerheads, the All-Mountain Labor Convention aims to gain greater concessions for JSL over how this technology will be adapted and managed in exchange for breaking the stalemate within the Chief Executive Panel. While the final verdict ultimately remains in the hands of each corporation’s executives, workers hope that their suggested policy and concessions may influence their decision in the coming weeks.

Following the recent assault on Bellevigne, the city and its surrounding suburbs bear the scars of intense conflict and destruction. Reports indicate widespread devastation in the suburbs, with fighting and targeted nuclear detonations causing significant damage to infrastructure and residential areas.

Incendiary munitions have been heavily employed within the capital, exacerbating the already challenging conditions. Buildings are engulfed in flames as Federal forces attempt to contain the situation amidst the chaos, while the autonomous drones, suspected to be aligned with Taayusaka Eskeitan, are reported to be engaging Federal units and civilian targets independently.

Analysts going over what little reliable footage has managed to trickle out of the colony have called the offensive an “Outrageous and needlessly barbaric attack.” while more extreme critics have leveled accusations of genocide against the corporation and its collaborators.

Additionally, there have been no reports of outbound flights from Bellevigne, indicating a deliberate disruption in transportation in order to disallow the escape of refugees and retreating troops.

In the wake of all the accusations against them, Taayusaka’s director of public affairs released the following:

"Taayusaka Eskeitan condemns in the strongest terms the Federation’s aggressive actions in Bellevigne, including the use of nuclear, incendiary weapons, and autonomous drones targeting civilians. These reprehensible tactics, employed in a desperate attempt to cling to power or destroy everything they cannot control, have only served to sow chaos and discord in our beloved system.

We categorically deny any involvement in the use of such devastating weaponry. Taayusaka Eskeitan is committed to upholding the highest standards of ethics and integrity in all our operations, and we categorically reject any attempts to smear our reputation with baseless accusations.

As we declare victory over the remnants of the Federation’s oppressive regime in this system, we reaffirm our unwavering commitment to peace and stability in Athounon. Our presence in the system will continue indefinitely, as we work tirelessly to ensure the security and prosperity of our communities.

Under our guidance, territories such as the thriving Ciel-Huogaatsu Administrative District have experienced unprecedented growth and development, serving as shining examples of the progress that can be achieved through collaboration and cooperation.

To the remaining independent states of Athounon, we extend an invitation to join us in forging a brighter future for our system. Contact a Taayusaka colonial development liaison today and become a part of Athounon’s journey towards its true potential."



News in Brief

  • UCPF officers back Taayusaka’s claims, confirming that nuclear attacks targeted their own units with flagrant disregard for civilians and Federal troops caught in the blasts

  • Bellevigne blackout continues as state is declared a restricted area by CorpSec forces, claiming that ‘decontamination and cleanup operations are underway’

  • Belletere parliament calls emergency session to discuss the fall of Bellevigne and foreign relations with Taayusaka client states

MHC-R3 VI - ORBITAL RING, SYNDICATE

Slogans and insults have characterized the arrival of the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist in MHC-R3, Planet VI’s Orbital Ring, a station and Neopian colony operated by @Lauralite_Anne_Brezia and House Brezia. The Sedevacantist Church, which holds that Amarrian Empress Catiz is invalid and the Amarr Throne is vacant, has established itself in a storefront in a busy Orbital Ring concourse. From there, lay missionaries have ventured out and confronted the Neopian public — parading an empty replica of the Imperial Throne, picketing a tattoo parlor with signs proclaiming, “Tattoos are Minmatar; Minmatar are Slaves”, and yelling, “Abomination” at Neopians with particularly visible canine or feline features.

In an interview with the press, the Church’s Fr. Sharav Shagdar struck a more conciliatory tone. “Salvation is available to everyone except Minmatar”, he said, “and fortunately we haven’t seen many of them here. Even these horrific human-animal hybrids can be saved. The leader of our church has prepared a crack team of Blood Raider Scientists to surgically remove the animal parts from every willing Neopian convert”. Asked about other first impressions regarding his Neopian mission field, Fr. Shagdar replied, “I’ve seen more transparent clothing here than in a Gallentean night club. Not that I’ve been in one; I’m going off reputation. Now, we in the Sedevacantist Church believe in sex, but as part of a journey toward monogamy and primogeniture — not promiscuity. I’ll be preaching on this subject almost every day”.

It is unclear whether the efforts of Fr. Shagdar and his missionaries have won any converts among the Neopians yet. In keeping with prior Church practice, the sedevacantists have focused their efforts toward workers performing manual labor, although Fr. Shagdar admitted his unfamiliarity with the Neopian social system. “We want to find who their working class is, and explain to them the benefits of slavery. Minmatar slaves will be given to all sedevacantists once the True Emperor comes”, he said. The Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist declined comment for this story.

Excerpts from an interview in Sede Vacante magazine — official newspaper of the Amarrian Orthodox Church, Sedevacantist — with Fr. Sharar Shagdar on his efforts to convert the Neopians of MHC-R3, Orbital Ring.

Tell us about the Neopians.
Their homeworld is somewhere in wormhole space. How they got there, no one knows. What we do know is that they aren’t quite humans. They aren’t even quite subhumans. They’ve been hybridized with cats and dogs. They have tails and pointy ears. And that isn’t even the most animal thing about them.

How so?
The Neopians are the most oversexed population in all of New Eden. They’re like animals in a permanent state of rut. Transparent clothing everywhere. Dominance displays. There’s even something in the air that makes people want to mate; we’ve already had to send one missionary home for inappropriate behavior. One of their leaders, @Lauralite_Anne_Brezia, runs an escort service.

Doesn’t sound like the ideal environment to spread sedevacantism.
Due to one reason I haven’t mentioned yet, it is actually the perfect place to spread sedevacantism, and our leader Nauplius has made the Neopians the #1 priority mission field. Just like dogs and cats, the Neopians don’t have one or two kids at a time — they have litters. So for each lady — did I mention the Neopians are kind of sort of all women — who converts we can get like eight new sedevacantist babies every year. We just have to find those are are dissatisfied, exhausted, or otherwise not fitting in with the continuous sexual competition of Neopian life and show them the better way of monogamy and stability offered by sedevacantism.

What other challenges have you faced?
We’re getting opposition from these probably illegal AIs the Neopians have running some things. But here, too, is opportunity. We’ve redirected our adversarial preaching against these AIs, trying to whip up hatred against them. We’re telling people that instead of being “slaves” to probably illegal AIs, they should be managers and supervisors over Minmatar slaves. Always create and exploit divisions in society, that’s what our leader Nauplius always tells us to do.

Best of luck converting these heathens.
Thank you, Sede Vacante, Amen.
