My name is Monden Searbier, I am the CEO of Lucrative Excavations, a company originally based planetside on Elarel II to dig up raw materials. But much like myself, this company was born in the Federation. I was born on Billie VI, I voted in every presidential election I was eligible for, I raised a family, paid my taxes, and most importantly - I am not a Capsuleer, nor has my company ever employed one
A communication license for me was purchased by the Raata Zaibatsu to speak on this message board. My involvement with the Zaibatsu is simple, the current Patriarch of the Zaibatsu, Huan Yaken, is the majority shareholder of Lucrative Excavations. This however has no effect on my Federal status. And I would like to point out that despite the association, Lucrative Excavations is operating independently under the blessing of the Zaibatsu’s Patriarch. His involvement started and ended with him giving Lucrative Excavations permission to pursue this purchase.
Lucrative Excavation’s documentation and permits to allow purchase and ownership of planetside commercial or industrial property outside its native member state - albeit only two or three months away from expiring - are in order and are valid in Federal courts. If any Sang Do requires a reveiwal of the material, they’re free to get in touch with our lawyer Islania Mongrav and request copies.
Now I suppose the big question is this “Why do we want this facility?” Unfortunately to be the bringing of bad news, it’s not to continue the ongoing medical response started by the UN-F. Lucrative Excavations will be bringing a new purpose to this facility. In the form if being the new HQ for a project we’re excited about.
Still confused? Let me put it like this - Lucrative Excavations is inviting any and all Federal citizens of all ages on Lirsautton VI to come to this facility to take part in a quick survey in exchange for a complimentary hot meal!
Survey takers will be placed in groups of 20 and escorted to an auditorium (A very utilitarian auditorium) where a speaker will say a single complement of a random living Sang Do and the survey takers will be asked to fill out one question on a slip of paper asking them whatever or not they agree that it was a fair compliment - these can be answered anonymously if the taker so chooses. Statistics of answers will be posted in the future, but individual choices will remain confidential.
Regardless of their answer - they will be escorted to a room where they will be treated to complimentary food and water! (As much as we would love to hand out Quafe - my shareholder has stressed that we don’t hand out soda as part of giving us permission). We know the time of the Federal citizens of Lirsautton VI is valuable, and while we can’t compensate them with money. We can with a hearty hot meal! We guarantee that survey takers will leave full and hydrated. Unfortunately, survey takers will not be able to leave the facility with packaged food. As we fear some scoundrels would be tempted to steal some of this delicious food in their possession, with force if necessary.
We know the IGS alone is not the best place to advertise this, so we will be using unarmed civilian-class dropships to drop down flyers not over, but in legal vicinity of the population centers closest to the facility the survey is being held. Unfortunately, the day we’ve already plan to being distributed (10/22/120) is showing signs of having windy conditions based on latest forecast data. We apologize if any of our flyers drift into prohibited areas due to these conditions. These are undoubtedly not the most optimal situation Lucrative Excavations wish to operate in
Now I’m an honest man, so I have to come clean and also apologize for the absolutely manipulative design choice we went for the flyer - I know, it’s bad, but we spent all our time writing a rough map on the back of them leading them to the facility from their population center. We didn’t want to settle with just providing vague instructions. For the actual cover of the flyer however has a very manipulative design choice of us highlighting in bright neon yellow that survey takers will be given a free meal and drink if they come take our survey. The flyers however are already being prepared for distribution sadly, so we apologize in advance for our unimaginative design choice.
We also like to say right away that we apologize again if we offend any locals by having our staff in hazmat suits. The germs of the planet are quite foreign and we’re aware of a rather disturbing flu outbreak on Lirsautton VI and we worry for the health of our workers very seriously. We also apologize for anyone coming to take the survey showing signs of illness. They will still be able to take the test, but will be put in groups of others showing flu symptoms. We mean no offence, but as much as we care for the health of our workers, we care for the people taking time out of their day to help us with our survey. As much as we care for the health of our staff, we care as equally for those coming to the facility to aid us in our quest for data.
Speaking of the flu outbreak, we’re aware of the presence of the Aidonis Foundation on the planet. They’ve been helping afflicted individuals understand their symptoms and aid them in fighting their illness. We here at Lucrative Excavations find their efforts to be noble and would be honored if they would like to use some of the ample space here in the former UN-F facility so that they may cover more ground.
Lucrative Excavations looks forward to the information we hope to gather! Sadly however, I will not be in direct supervision of this project. I have other obligations to the Zaibatsu that I must fulfill. In my stead, my son and CFO @Akels_Searbier will be in charge. He will be joining the IGS soon to ask any questions you may have. At the same time giving a little more info on our mission statement.
