Solar Winds Trade Conglomerate (SW-TC).
We are a real life comes first, “fun per hour” corporation predicated on the philosophy of voluntarism, also known as volunteerism: “the theory that a community is best organized by the voluntary cooperation of individuals, rather than by coercion.” SW-TC can best be described as a social club of people who play EVE Online. There is no mandatory participation. Our leadership structure is very loose and deals mostly with diplomacy and the administrative aspects of setting things up for our members. Basically, we hang out and do things.
Leaderships consists of seasoned veterans with a wide breadth of experience who have known each other for a couple of years. Our oldest director has been playing the game since 2006, our youngest since 2013. We are located in an area of Solitude known as “The Crown” which contains a mix of HiSec and LowSec systems.
We’re looking for well-rounded, social players who do a mix of PvE and PvP - but we will not turn away pure PvE or pure PvP pilots. Our ideal member doesn’t ask “is there a fleet? what are we doing?” but instead logs in and, seeing no fleet, says “hey guys I’m forming a fleet, who wants to do X or Y?”
Most of us are USTZ, but timezone doesn’t matter. We’re experienced PvPers, but killboards don’t matter. I have no life and play all day, but activity levels don’t matter. Expertise doesn’t matter although we are limited in our capacity to train newbros at the moment.
Presently we share our systems with a hostile entity that we are in the process of encouraging to move. They are mostly AUTZ, so if you like to PvP and are active in the mornings or late evenings (USTZ), there are ample opportunities for pewpew. There are also plans in the work for regular PvP roams (and of course, as a voluntarist corp, anyone is free to put a fleet together anytime they want).
CCP is planning to open a new gate from Eggheron to Kenninck, which would connect The Crown to Placid. This will bring more content to our area of space and open up more opportunities for roaming. We are very excited about this and have decided to start open recruitment in anticipation of it.
Everyone’s gotta make their daily bread. Solitude is actually a pretty decent place to make money. There is a large, contiguous area of LowSec full of ore anoms and gas clouds, and we live right next to two consecutive ice systems. Our HiSec base has 20 belts, and they are always fat. We have done a decent job of driving away hostiles who used to occupy the area south of us and now operate mostly with impunity throughout Solitude. We also do daytripping into C3 and C4 WHs and have access to LowSec moon mining.
We would love to recruit some industrialists who do either Tech1 or Tech2 invention! While we have logistics covered, it’s always great to have people who can make stuff “in house”.

We also have a website I guess: solarwindstc.com. This makes us an official, real corp!
