In the days of the wild west in the United States, they used the word ‘grit’ to describe unyielding courage, stamina, fortitude, indomitable spirit, and devotion to what is right. Now that we’ve left behind our old home and come to a new frontier, the Starlight Federation is looking for pilots with grit. Upstanding, firm, fair, and enduring capsuleers to try to carve a home out of the wilds of New Eden.
Basic Information Bullet List (Click to Expand)

In particular, we are looking for capsuleers who want to have an identity, and who want to be able to make a meaningful difference in each other’s lives without having to commit a great deal of their time or money to guarantee their continued relevance. To protect this opportunity, the Federation prohibits multiboxing, and puts severe limitations on multiple characters. I want people who help each other more than I want people who create more characters to help themselves.
The Federation is war eligible. We intend to be peaceful, but we also intend to stand our ground. We welcome indy, pvp and pve pilots in any time zone with open arms, but you must be willing to stand with your corporation and alliance when the chips are down. We will help you do what you want to do in New Eden, and expect you to help us go where we want to go, too. You won’t be required to complete a specific task list, or engage our enemies ship to ship, but you should want to provide some assistance in line with your skills and talents when those skills or talents are in need. If you can’t fly a combat ship, perhaps make one for someone who can. If you can’t make ships, perhaps provide escort and safety for someone who can. If you want to matter, you must choose to make a difference in someone’s life.
The Federation seeks to be a respected organization in New Eden. We should neither provide tears, nor try to mine salt from our fellows. We should lead by example, and avoid telling people how to play their game. Some will love us, some will hate us, and some won’t care one way or the other, but we should treat all players with respect, regardless of their play style. Fight ships with ships, opinion and hearsay with facts, and rage with reason. Forgive first, and incinerate the ships and capsules of any who have abused our charity. Never, though, treat a player with disrespect. Be better than that. Be better than them, and be humble about it.
You can mail Qia Kare (that’s me!) if you have questions, comments, or wish to associate or ally with us. I also take suggestions on how to revise this ad, because I suck at writing ads, if you haven’t noticed. I am trying to create something a little different, and the standard ad formatting did not seem up to the task at hand.
