On the Accord
As a proud member of the Amarr fighting force of Amarrian Vengeance it has come to my attention that a certain schism has emerged amongst Amarr loyalists since it began. With some being more vocal than others on this, the schism remains.
I seek to address this schism in the following letter as it seems some clarifications needed to be highlighted.
It has been a little over a month since the very controversial agreement between a small Coalition of Amarr fighters and Ushra Khan has come into effect.
While many scoffs have been thrown at this accord or agreement, I will not take this letter as a direct debate to many an Amarr senior that has felt uncomfortable with such an agreement, but rather as a much-needed clarification from someone in the front lines of this accord and responsible for upholding it.
The main and obvious reason for such negativity from our beloved Amarr seniors at this agreement is not a surprise. As it does in effect hand over system control of 24th Imperial Crusade systems to a sworn enemy. Systems that not only do many Amarr, but myself included, consider to be holy ground. Holy ground that has been time and time again rightfully fertilized by our blood, sweat and tears as we reclaim and purify it from the Matar’s hold.
What many an outsider to Amarr ways of thinking overlook is the very simple fact of roles. Everyone is born into their roles in society and in this universe as God has intended. And it just so happens that the Role of the Amarr is to be in control and bring to light the lower and often misguided souls that think what they do in their short-lived lives, and what they speak and do somehow affects the grand scheme of our creator. A scheme that spans billions of years that does not even compare to the minuscule speck of time these lower creations live, feed and breed. Indeed, many a wayward soul believes that they somehow have a hand in destiny and to guide the over arching plan of the creator. This, of course, stems from humanities hopeless hubris and struggle to have control over their lives, destinies and ultimately…roles that have been given to the by the All Mighty.
Many a faithless soul proclaims proudly and loudly that they curse the creator, and are smarter than those that have fallen to that fiction they call religion. As if their lowly opinion has even a speck of consideration or effect on the overall plan and destiny of this universe.
To bring this around to our letter it is important to affirm our role in this universe. Our role is simple, we are Soldiers for the Amarr Empire. Our stated reason for being as Amarrian Vengeance pilots has always been the spearhead of attacks that culminate in the rejoicing cry of Amarr Victor as another system is reclaimed by the light. This is our role, this is who we are, and nothing will change that. I have come to peace with my role in life, as a Soldier. More specifically a Soldier that is loyal to a cause, a soldier that fights mercenaries. More on this later.
The problem going forward once this role has been established is a problem of loyalty. Loyalty is such a small word, but such an important factor in all of this.
It is simply the will of the creator that the light is spread, it is simply our role in this grand universe to be part of those spreading it. Those that disrupt the natural order of this grand plan with frivolous loyalties are to be dealt with as such.
It is common knowledge that what differentiates a soldier from a mercenary is loyalty. One is loyal to a cause, another may fight for either side, and in many cases does just that.
What our warzone has been saturated with in the recent years has been mercenaries, they wear the same badges, the same ranks, fly the same ships and fight for the same systems as do the soldiers. But their loyalty is flimsy at best. As such our role in Amarrian Vengeance has taken a sudden turn as to fighting to reclaim systems and break the backs of the most powerful Minmatar enemies to a role of fighting those that show less than pure loyalty. Those that are not loyal to the Amarr but rather loyal to other causes, mainly money.
Thus, to reiterate the current accord it is simply a war between Soldiers, that fight for either the Amarr or the Matar, and mercenaries that fight for any and all as long as the pay is well.
This immediate threat must be addressed. And as we address it, may no one be confused or suspicious about our loyalty. If this issue is not addressed then the fighting force of each of the four Empires will always be diseased by this cancer. A cancer that many should agree should not infect our ranks as soldiers. This accord if you will is simply a case of soldiers, opposing soldiers, coming together to fight a common enemy. How long this will last remains to be seen, but rest assured the minute it is over well, suffice to say a tiger never loses it’s stripes no matter how muddy it gets hunting.
