The Excubitoris Chapter of the Sacred Throne (PIE Inc.) Is Recruiting (Pro Amarr Roleplay))

The Excubitoris Chapter of the Sacred Throne is Recruiting!

The Excubitoris Chapter of the Sacred Throne Order is looking for Amarr recruits to join a capsuleer organisation with an eighteen year history of service to the Amarr Empire. We seek individuals capable of living up to the highest standards of Amarr morality and who might have what it takes to become full Paladins in service to the Empress.

History of the Order of the Sacred Throne

The Origins of the Sacred Throne Order date back to the period of the Moral Reforms. This period was marked by internal conflict in the Amarr Empire in which the Council of Apostles, along with their supporters the Order of the Tetrimon, were led astray and turned against the Emperor. A botched assassination attempt on the part of the Council led to a significant civil war.

The Order of the Sacred Throne was founded in the darkest period of this war. It was a secret society of individuals known to be utterly loyal to the Emperor. The individuals were given a cross symbol as a sign of their devotion and inducted into the Military Order of the Sacred Throne.

For thousands of years now, the order and its cross have stood as a symbol of the best and brightest of Amarr. Membership in the Order represents absolute devotion to the office of Emperor and the Divine Order that it represents.

History of the Chapter

The Excubitoris Chapter of the Sacred Throne Order was founded as the capsuleer paramilitary group PIE inc. (Praetoria Excubitoris Imperialis) in 105 Y.C. PIE, Inc. is the oldest pod-pilot corporation loyal to the Amarr Empire, having been founded early in YC105 (May 2003). Throughout this time it has only accepted Amarr citizens into its ranks and has only flown ships based upon Amarr hulls in combat. It has a long list of achievements throughout the last 18 years, all in service to Amarr.

After 15 years of service and many adventures in service of Amarr, the Empress Catiz I made the following decree:

“Her Most Sublime and Imperial Majesty Catiz I, in recognition of 15 years of loyal service to Holy Amarr and four Emperors, is pleased to order that the Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris be accorded the status of a Chapter of the Sacred Throne Order with all the rights and privileges thereof. Capsuleers of the Excubitoris Chapter may use the style of Paladin Ordinary of the Sacred Throne Order. Capsuleers of the Excubitoris Admiralty ranks, active and retired, may use the style and dignity of Paladin Commander of the Sacred Throne Order. The loyal officers of the Excubitoris may elect one of their number as Chapter Master. So ordered in the Privy Council of Her Imperial Majesty Catiz I.”

-Cardinal Itharen on behalf of the Privy Council of Catiz I. September 27, YC 120.

The Chapter’s Future

The creation of the Excubitoris Chapter changed the nature of PIE inc. from a paramilitary organization with a naval structure to an official military order made up of paladins sworn to uphold the throne. As befits their exalted status, the Paladins of the Excubitoris Chapter have a great deal of autonomy. They are expected to work tirelessly to aid Amarr and the Throne, but the order does not proscribe a particular path to accomplishing this. A new Paladin is expected to act with the utmost honor and commitment and to serve as a paragon of virtue and a shining example of everything that Amarr should aspire to. You could be a part of this future if:

  1. You are of Amarr background and have always maintained good standing with the Empire.
  2. You are willing to commit to flying Amarr ships.
  3. You are able to operate in a near permanent state of war with groups opposed to the Amarr Empire.
  4. You are willing to work to support other PIE members and to prioritise supporting the Empire and Empress.
  5. You are willing to act at all times with the decorum expected of a Paladin of Amarr.
  6. You will prioritise helping Amarr in all of your in space choices.

For an idea of how the Chapter views the threats facing Amarr, see this briefing.

Recruitment Procedure

If you are interested in potentially joining PIE, join our channel “Sacred Throne” in game and our discord server). Then look on our discord server in the channel #public-documents and read the document “excubitoris_chapter_recruitment_material.pdf.” This will outline our recruitment policy, rules, and the process to follow for the application.

Out of Character Note

Now, as should be obvious from the above, PIE is a roleplay corporation that uses in-universe motivation to drive our decisions about how to play EVE. We use the background of EVE as motivation to tell stories, both in game with spaceships and in text about the characters and universe. This can seem quite the barrier to people unused to roleplay, but we are not expecting you to be an experienced roleplayer from day one. Rather, we expect that you will be willing to try. We can help you learn the lore and will be forgiving to new player mistakes…

We also are friendly to players who are new to EVE. There is no minimum SP requirement for PIE and we do not expect that you know anything about the game. Our members have literal decades of EVE experience between them and are happy to help new players learn the game. EVE is a difficult game and there is no shame in not knowing aspects of it, no matter how long you have been playing. There is also no mandatory level of activity required.

While the characters we play may not be good people, we want our OOC community to be inclusive and friendly. We expect members to cultivate a spirit of camaraderie OOC. EVE is a game and everyone is here because they choose to spend their time in game with each other. As such, having fun with other members of the corp is the single most important OOC goal that we can have. Try to be non-judgmental towards other PIE members and work to make PIE a fun environment for everyone.

i am guessing amarr pilots already in FW for amarr but that dont have amarr specific names are not allowed?

Well, while PIE has rules regarding a lot of things, and we are looking to adhere to RP things, I think in a lot of instances we can work with what you have.

Also it might be that our in game names could be callsigns? I am not sure but you should join the discord and ask and more knowledgeable PIE recruiters and answer all of your questions!

Thank you for the question and I will see about someone coming here to answer that actually knows what they are talking about haha.

We have a long tradition of working with people new to RP with… somewhat non-traditional names. Basically, we are happy to work with people.

In other news Excubitoris Chapter’s Khanid Expedition was just involved in a small war ( [I-RCN] Ishukone-Raata Certified News GalNet Hub - #34 by Selenna_Scarlet_Solange) against Triglav supporters.

I have fought against the Amarr Militia in the FW Warzone since I started playing, with the exception of when I had to go to highsec to do 4 months of unpaid belt ratting to save systems from the Triglavians.

During my time in the warzone, PIE have become my favourite enemies for the following reasons:

  • Competent enemies, both in fleet and solo.
  • Always conduct themselves respectfully, especially in contrast to the rest of the Amarr Militia.
  • I have watched them guide both Zeri and Nolcond on their first steps into fleet and solo PVP. The size of their organization means that they have the time to look out for the people they take in.

But most importantly, they tick all the boxes a loyalist RP corp ought to:

  • Almost two decades of dedication to their chosen faction.
  • In-depth knowledge of, and adherence to, the lore.
  • Properly distinguish between IC and OOC, in-game and IRL.

Every core empire deserves a group like this.

Hello,

I’ve read your posts and became interested. I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself so you can decide if I’m worth your time.

About 13 years ago I started playing EVE as a try. When everything went horribly wrong and I made every mistake I could with people capitilazing on that; I was hooked.
The sandbox idea along with the need to do some serious internet searching was intoxicating.
I stopped playing EVE when I felt it was no longer a sandbox. I don’t like NPC’s at all.

To give an example: I do not dislike CODE. In my view they’re people generating their own content with a willingness to share that. I feel I asked about that the moment I undock.
When they gank I react with: Tsss… weak.
Not a single NPC will ever invoke a reaction. Let alone a proper “negative” one.

As time went by, I created more characters. By sheer coincidence I ended up with 4. One for each Empire. The character I’m posting with is Minmatar because I was told it was the best starter race for PvP (which was true at the time).
It also means I have a dedicated Amarr character. And although the Caldari, Gallente and Minmatar ones spread out their skillset, the Amarr one never did. I made it with the idea to join CVA, which were as close to non-empire Amarr as it got 12 years ago. No idea how that is these days ofc.

So here’s what I need to know:

  • Is it ok for me to be an alpha clone instead of Omega? If I get my love for EVE back, that might change, but I’m very reluctant to spend money on EVE these days.
  • I have sound, but threw away my last broken mic years ago. Is it ok to just listen on comms? That too can change over time ofc.
  • Most important for me: does RP-ing mean you create your own content (stories). I ask, because I tend to behave the way I set up my characters. This PvP character has died alot in hopeless situatons for example. Because “she” is obsessed with combat and will engage whether its smart or not. (For me everything reallly is pixels. I don’t care if I “lose” stuff if it’s traded for fun/content).
  • My characters are well beyong alpha training so they haven’t accumulated skillpoints or trained for a long time. The Amarr character is therefor currently stuck at around 120 million. Most of which is also locked behind Omega. So it’s a big Alpha at best. Is that good enough?

Thank in advance for reading my post.

Regards,

Hi Yarda

In answer to your questions:

  1. We accept Alphas

  2. We do not require talking on voicecoms. I personally find them quite stressful thanks to auditory processing issues, so tend to avoid talking there in favor of text whenever practicable.

  3. RPing means a mix of creating own content and backstory, and in actively playing the game in accordance with the in character ideals. So the example you give of a character IC being combat obsessed and taking risks as a way to justify OOC seeking a certain playstyle is a good example.

  4. We have no SP requirements and try to find low SP players ways to help. I joined PIE way back in 2004 on a 2 week old character! Our fying Amarr only helps here, by narrowing required skills.

Great endorsement!

What better then your worst foe declaring your integrity and worth, and Bravo Sir to being willing to give such. The Creator may yet spare your soul, as you eventually as a heretic die on the the burning piers. Such is the warmth and care of Amarr! :slight_smile:

I’m very Impressed and Interested.

Currently in a NE sector Corp Warring for righteous in the region. Yet this corp is really Something I really would have jump on in the beginning had Id known. RPing, is something I very much enjoy, and Amarr with is twisted darkness and light is a powerful backdrop, hence my first toons origins are Amarr. Chaplain, is Main. I’ve the rest of my alts other then Chaplain in Eve University, fantastic learning Corp. I plan to keep some there as teaching would be another goal. So I will look at the discord??? and see what options I might have for transferring, or create a new?
P.S. FW is very interesting!

Thank you for my hopefully short intro.
:innocent: :japanese_ogre:

This is an out-of-character thread in an out-of-character sub-forum. I see no reason not to be civil and honest. Hostility between roleplayers stays in the game, or in in-character threads.

Updated with an extremely cool updated poster by @Ascentior

Also PIE has just announced that it is joining the alliance Khimi Harar!
