To: Convocation of Empyreans,
Greetings Fellows of the Convocation,
I have been thinking about the grave threats and ample opportunities that lay before us. We stand at the precipice of unprecedented challenges and perils, as well as those who would surely love to use circumstance against us, to strike us if we let our guard down.
I have heard the offers of this “Zorya Triglav”, as well as their Convocation. While they have not been forthright, we have still attempted to assess their desires. What we have found is a culture defined by the rule of might tempered by a desire for unity. They seek to “prove” us, and we have done so, first within their territories, then by defending our own, and finally by aiding them against those who bore us into this universe.
Despite this, all attempts to actually communicate or support the efforts of Zorya and their ilk have been met with less than nothing. Our logistic ships, flying their own TTC-72 Rodiva class Cruiser, trying to save one of their own in an Emerging Conduit from another Empyrean, was met with deadly force for their trouble!
Now Zorya wishes to take our people, and perform experiments on them. Well to that I say this: Rocks are one thing, our people are something else. The baseliners who bore us are the birthright of all Empyreans to do with as we see fit. It is beyond the pale to simply ferry them away without discussion. My very home of Fliet coming under direct attack is the shining example of this undignified behavior. If the Triglavians wish to have us consider their “Vyraj”, they better learn to act with more manners.
That said, CONCORD is and continues to be the True Enemy of the Empyreans. ANY tool, ANY method that may bring us closer to forever unbinding us from the shackles of our oppressors must be pursued. Without CONCORD intervention, our power would be completely unbound, and the Triglavian would be just another gnat under our foot. The fact that they are a “threat” at all is just another sign of the broken deal brokered with the Immortals that rightfully should rule these Stars.
To CONCORD I say: let us free and we will rid you of this menace.
To Zorya I say: We are proven, show us what you offer or you will never see another Liminality.
The Empyreans are the future of New Eden.
We are inevitable.
