Startup looking for sponsors!


(Catherine De'Lane) #6

You give me a cool looking Volcano and I will find you a market! I’m sure I could get something to work. Whether it makes a lot of money is a different question.


(Veikitamo Gesakaarin) #7

Well my volcano is a three klick high shield variant on the dark side of a tidally locked planet. Great views of electric blue brimstone magma into an acid lake to dispose of the bodies.

Great place for alone time when I don’t bring this identity off the ice rack for fun and games of ultraviolence and have to be my true self.

Sometimes being a corporate exec in the conflict investment business can be such a bore when you can’t get some time in for real conflict and get your hands bloody with some kills.

Anyway, I’m all good on the pleasure front, and my pleasures do not really entail the usual sanitized package tourist deals


(Catherine De'Lane) #8

Those descriptions sound quite extravagant! Perhaps for the more Adventurous Tourist I can get something to work. I’ll keep you in mind!

(Veikitamo Gesakaarin) #9

Sure, why not. I always know how to show an adventurous type a Good Time.


(Alex Hinkelmann) #10

Ms De’Lane,

I’ve had the time to speak to our customs committee at Ishukone-Raata Accounting and Transport and we’ve agreed to allow an opening of dialog in regards to this petition for sponsorship. Currently we’d be willing to open up the use of a Terrestrial customs office under our jurisdiction in the Intaki Syndicate.

Further details of course can be discussed in private with a Ishukone-Raata Representative.

I was going to suggest this, so am glad to see I-RED making the offer. It compliments other efforts to normalise activity on planets in the region.

Ms. De’Lane, there are some wonderful locations in Syndicate within easy reach of the Federation’s borders. I would be happy to discuss arrangements (on behalf of the Intaki Syndicate Militia) with any of your clients who might be nervous about making the journey; either by way of a yacht berth or a scout for the more adventurous.


(Catherine De'Lane) #12

Mr Hinkelmann,

This is just the offer I was looking for! I will be contacting you with a Private message very soon, although I do have a few questions.

My knowledge of Syndicate and the surrounding regions is sorely lacking.

How hard is it to travel too?

Are transports attacked often in the region?

Are the Serpentis in the region known for kidnapping and ransom?

What of Capsuleer pirates?

If These are questions you would rather answer in private please feel free! This is a very exciting opportunity for the both of us!

~Cathy


Regarding Senator Bellaron's Proposal
(Catherine De'Lane) #13

Do you work with I-RED? I will admit my knowledge of Syndicate Politics is below 0.


(Orpheus Menkalinan) #14

“Working with” is a bit grand for me. I am just a local manufacturer, although I am pleased to support the Syndicate Sustainability Initiative as a fairly regular supplier.


(Shintoko Akahoshi) #15

That area is unique in that the Intaki Syndicate is prohibited by treaty from settling planets. I suspect there will be some interesting legal challenges involved with this project. I’m looking forward to seeing how this plays out.


(Orpheus Menkalinan) #16

There is a debate to be had, although perhaps not for this discussion, about what level of activity constitutes ‘settlement’.

EDIT: the prohibition appears to be on planetary colonies, which perhaps has a slightly different connotation to settlement.


(MantelGlobalIndustries) #17

The prohibition is on any and all forms of planetary settlements and colonies. It’s a restriction dating back to the early years of the Caldari-Gallente War, when the original five thousand were exiled by President Duvailer to the region that is now known as Syndicate. It’s why there are a considerable number of space stations out there.


(Creetalor) #18

I am sure treaty concerning settlements has fallen from relevance and regard among the Syndicate, even more since the advent of planetary industry. The opening of this industry has moved life for many people from the stations to planetary facilities and with it regions of housing and settlement even more so habitable planets not requiring in facility housing.


(Korsavius) #19

It certainly has. Where there is a will, there is a way. Much like how smugglers and other entities establish hidden outposts throughout empire space, numerous groups have established settlements on the virgin worlds of Syndicate. Some of these settlements experienced better success than others, as evidenced in a declassified report provided some years ago by Katrina Oniseki.

Because of the threat of retaliation from the Gallente Federation, many of these attempts fail without proper support from the Intaki Syndicate. It is really a shame that the Federation has yet to make amends on the people they forcibly and wrongfully exiled from their space.

With I-RED’s most recent return to Syndicate, we have sponsored the creation and development of a settlement unlike any other in the region - a true colony. The Utpattia Protectorate is a beacon of light in a vast sea of darkness. The colonists, many of ethnic Intaki descent, have built something truly incredible. It is amazing how much Intaki native to Syndicate can accomplish when provided ample opportunities for growth, prosperity, and safety. It is a shame that the Roden administration fails to see this.

However, bias against the Intaki Syndicate is still obvious among Federal supporters. During the ill-fated Isonomia Caucus and Villore Assembly, any attempt by I-RED delegates to voice concerns for the Intaki of Syndicate were quickly rebuked by Federation loyalists. This was a real tragedy as the opportunity to repair ill will between the Federation and Syndicate was passed up over negative biases and stereotypes rampant in the Federation.

The Utpattia Protectorate, nurtured by the Syndicate Stability Initiative II™, represents a commitment of mutual benefit to the Intaki people. The atmosphere on the colony is completely unlike that which was observed in the events leading up to the Waschi Uprising in Waschi City. Here, Caldari and Intaki alike work and live together in harmony, unified by a common purpose - the prosperity and well-being of all.

Contrary to popular belief in the Federation, the Intaki Syndicate is not simply a den of low-life, criminals, and scumbags. It is full of families. Of children laughing and hopeful of the future. Of mothers and fathers working tirelessly to provide for themselves and their loved ones. A life working less-than-legal activities is a matter of survival, not desire, by many in the Intaki Syndicate. I-RED has and always will provide opportunities to live a comfortable life free from the stress associated with illegal work. The Utpattia Protectorate stands as a testament to that fact. And perhaps one day the Federation will see past their biases.


(Mammal Tafren) #20

The Intaki Syndicate is an excellent region to seek prosperity. Safe, quiet and full of beautiful worlds teeming with opportunity.

Ishukone-Raata is and always has been a good friend and ally to the Intaki people.


(Orpheus Menkalinan) #21

Well, if we are going to use this thread for this discussion (apologies Ms De’Lane), then it is worth pointing out that following the Tovil Trials, President Yiona’s administration reviewed the acts of the Duvalier administration and considered reconciliation with the Intaki Syndicate. I am sure there were many reasons why this did not happen then, Yiona’s agenda included an active war and fundamental constitutional reform, but there seem to be fewer reasons why not now.

The exile of the 5,000 may have been legal under the martial law prevailing at the time but the continued prohibition on colonisation seems like multi-generational collective punishment that sits awkwardly with the spirit of the Hueromont Reforms and current federal law.


(Creetalor) #22

Returning to the matter at hand I have a substantial investment on a temperate planet facility in Syndicate. The facility is a zero emission assembly of components plant to ensure the local flora and fauna are not impacted. There is also modest town that has sprung around the assembly inside the dome. There would be no luxury lodging at this time so would be more suitable for clientele looking to slow down their busy life and return their spirit to a calm state. Lodging in basic lodging. There is a Intaki Ida temple and a Achuran Monastery for the work force the Monastery offers lodging to those searching, I myself have used this lodging. The planet has a above average gravity with 13.747 m/s^2 and has created a lethargic herbivore dominant fauna making it further ideal for the explorers. Do note however the clientele will need to endure a 1 day decontamination and scanning process leaving and entering the facility dome. With the fauna being so vulnerable we are very diligent to not bring foreign creatures or bacteria to the ecosystem.


(Shintoko Akahoshi) #23

In general I don’t agree with many of I-RED’s positions, but I do strongly agree with their stance on reconciliation with the Intaki Syndicate. I think, with the perspective that comes from history, it’s clear that the original 5000 exiles were victims of the Gallente nationalist furor of the time. Whatever anyone might feel about that, even if we assume the original 5000 were guilty of a crime deserving punishment (which I, personally, don’t agree with), continuing to punish their descendants is stupidly cruel.

I would like to see the restrictions on planetary settlements lifted. I would like to see the Syndicate either granted full status as a sovereign power by the Federation - instead of this ‘protectorate’ status that seems to simply mean ‘we have a gun pointed at you, should you misbehave’ - or for the Syndicate to rejoin the Federation as full members.


(Creetalor) #24

One must not dismiss someone even for a disagreement of one stance as one is usually multi faceted and may agree elsewhere.
