[VPN] Official Venal Prosperity Network thread

I’m very pleased to hear about the success of your grand opening of the lounge. And I’m happy to have the involvement of the UNF-A in the Prosperity Network. Here’s to continued growth as YC 122 approaches!

Simple, yet i appreciate your encouragement nonetheless.

Fun little fight the other day saving a friendly rorq, scrambling (out of bed for some of us!) and rushing to the system. Managed to assemble a rag-tag fleet and warped in to fend off the baddies.

Took some losses but managed to save the rorq so op success! Was interesting to see such a mix of people in the fleet coming together to help.

Thank you for sharing!

Though i think this tale deserves a wee bit more context

A small skirmish broke out after a Network freelancer by the alias ‘Hazal T’ was moving to scoop up an upwell structure of theirs in the system of 92K-H2, using a combat fit Rorqual no less.

Unfortunately for them, an ambush was waiting for them made up of pilots of the alliance Straight for the Sun. They tackled their Rorqual and created a situation that would otherwise seem like another helpless capital ship being pelted by a much larger and well equipped force.

However, thanks to the Network and the will of a few other pilots, this Rorqual would be pulled out of that fire it landed itself in. HAzel T contacted Ackaroth of Plundering Penguins, who reached out to pilots of Hooded Underworld, and they put together on the spot a impromptu recsue team to head out to 92K-H2 and fend off the attackers.

Sustaining losses as Willus said, the defenders managed to atleast complete their objective and save that Rorqual with all souls onboard.

This is a story that i hold quite dear, as it’s a story that gives me faith in this project, that this Network can bring people together to cooperate and communicate and bring prosperity to this region. And i hope more significant moments like this can happen again and keep the vision alive.

The opening of this ‘Hypernet Relay’ presents some very interesting opportunities to move some products out here. I’ve taken the liberty of putting up some orders to get the ball moving, the Worms and Gila are my orders - Incredible piece of technology well worth their costs, but thanks to the Hypernet? That value can be anyone’s for a fraction of the price!

I will see about maintaining even more orders in the near future and establish a raffle scene out in these parts…The Guristas do like their gambling.

The Hypenet is proving to have alot of potential, as such I’m going to capitalize on it to help boost the efforts out here.

Having moved a total of twenty Worms using the Hypernet, i will be now moving onto lower tier and cheaper goods to put up for raffling, Destroyers, Tayras, and Ventures for right now. All prices are based off the current local prices out here in 6NJ8-V.

This, i hope encourages more people to come out to these parts, maybe look on the market for some fittings for their new hulls.

“Guristas money laundering and corporate scrip exchange activity “increases substantially” after Venal trade hub established”

This is a ticker from the recent Scope broadcast at the timestamp 1:32.

I’m quite pleased at this turn of events, I’m happy that all the effort put forth by Network members is paying off and the Guristas are reaping some of the benefits of having a trade hub to call their own.

I’m quite satisfied with all this, what started off with a small time industrial endeavor, has blossomed into something much more, I am honored to have met the people i have on this path towards prosperity for Venal, It’s been quite the adventure and experience and i look forward to what YC 122 has in store for us. I don’t aim to stop here, i want to see further expansion of our efforts in this region and a vision i have come reality.

In due time, i hope you will all see what i and a few others have in mind. I don’t want this to be the ending, but the beginning of greater things.

Glad to be a part of this initiative, together with the VNIC. Prosperity for the locals - long live Venal!

It’s been good having you along for the ride.

VNIC, or the Venal Industrial Coalition, is in-fact a corporation born out of thee Network, the owners may have migrated to the region to my efforts i was making public, but they formed a banner of their own once inside with the mission of starting up their own production lines. I’d say more, but i’ts not my place to reveal all the secrets of Walkop’s organization.

Point is, I’m very happy to have Walkop’s commitment and efforts apart of the Network. I have hopes he’ll continue to be a contributing factor out here.

Inspired by Avio, I have put 8 Sabres up on the Hypernet Relay in 6NJ8-V. I would imagine that gambling on the Hypernet would be a good compliment to the Hissi Fit bar.

Look forward to gambling my well earned planetary profits at the bar as well

I really appreciate you taking the time to source such magnificent starships out here. If the Hypernet offers don’t go though I’d hope you’d at least list them on the market out here. Almost certain there’s some Capsuleers who’d like to own them

You patronage of any establishment out here in 6NJ8-V will help greatly.

Small notice on some new buy orders i’ve tossed up

I’m looking for compressed ore, specifically Dense Veldspar, Massive Scordite and Viscous Pyroxeres

Now i know - i know, I’m out here on the Null security frontier where rare ore can be found, why the hell am i buying up ore that can be found back in high security space.

Multiple reasons, firstly, to run an experiment that might liven up the economy a wee bit. Next, having lived out here for a few months and having to do my own mining from time to time. I learned to appreciate the simple and increadily easy to mine Veldspar or Scrodite. I’m in need for material like Tritanium to help fortify my stocks out here, It’s the one material I’m in dire need of in bulk in order to mass produce much more aggressively. I still got several industrial -class haulers i need to build and stock up on the market, along with destroyers.

Soon than we all think, I’ll have every Tier one frigate, Destroyer and industrial hauler on the market out here. Stepping up to that hull size is gonna need alot of basic materials however, so if you’re reading this and got a interceptor or looking to do some mining out in this sector, know that i need your help and as these buy order prices i linked will show you - I’m willing to pay.

Thanks to Upwell technology, compressed ore is very accessible to any pilot, just take your ore to any Citadel with a working reprocessing center and send them in to be compressed from your hanger. 6NJ-8V even has such a citadel under the name “Nem’s Love hut”…Nem is a fleet commander for the Brotherhood of Spacers, he purchased the structures off the former freeport owners and gave them his own touch with the renaming. Good enough guy, i can say that much.

A strange development has occurred, at least out here in Venal.

Veldspar is nowhere to even be found out here, I’ve checked the belts in 6NJ8-V and used the agency interface to scout belts further from the system…To my shock and suprise, Veldspar is nowhere to be seen.

My buy order for Compressed Dense Veldspar will remain up, i won’t be able to depend on local supply for the ore, but doesn’t mean it can’t be imported still, as a result - i will be bumping up y price by another 500 ISK

Something i never mentioned prior is how exactly the network is of benefits to non-Capsuleer individuals out here in Venal. I do believe i should remedy this by explaining it now rather than never.

More so as I’ve recently invested funding into expanding this infrastructure to all stations and citadel freeports in Venal, but now residents of Guristas stations and select freeports will be able to approach one of many newly installed Network kiosks and download a Neocom application that connects them to the Prosperity Network.

From this application, the user will be able to look though countless buy and sell orders posted by other users throughout Venal. Either one is looking to sell some spoils or another is looking to buy a collectible, users that register with the Network will be able to advertise whatever it is they’re looking to buy or sell. This includes services, Freelancer status is much a thing with non-capsuleers. Freelancers will be able to advertise any specialty they have to offer at a price of their choosing.

The ‘Baseliner’ client of the Network application is separated from the Capsuleer client, While Capsuleers are free to use the counterpart client for niche purchases, the Capsuleer side of the Network will remain secured for Capsuleers to discuss their high end and more relevant transactions. Another difference the Baseliner client has over the Capsuleer variant is it’s range. Users will only be able to access the Network within the region of Venal, this is to help minimize potential cyber threats to the Network from outside parties. It is called the Venal Prosperity Network afterall, be silly if you could connect to it some silly region like Period Bases.

The client also allows digital payments between buyer and seller, supporting payment options with Caldari Mega corporations script or straight up Guristas script. As well as ISK of course for those users that have access to the currency. The client does all the math on transaction rates and allows the user to include and exclude what forms of payment are acceptable. Of course, they could bypass this entirely and pay in their own discreet manner.

We hope the expansion of this service will help make trade in Venal much more easier and convenient for the people of Venal. We hope to expand the service to any planetside colonies in Venal, but will test the waters with the spacer community of the region. This service is free, with the house taking no cut or tax out of any user’s transaction.

I’ve kept this under wraps for awhile, but several weeks ago I obtained the rights of ownership of the customs office in orbit of the Guristas capital world of 6NJ8-V IV, A world that was terraformed into what it is today by Fatal and The Rabbit.

While i have my personal gripes about terrafromed worlds,I can’t change the fact that this world is the Guristas’ declared capital world and whatever personal feelings i have are irrelevant. As such, i went out of my way to get ahold of the ownership of this customs office so that i may angle it to support the Gurstas. I managed to purchase it off the former owners of Frozen Silver of the Arkhos Core alliance after they pulled out of the system. the other offices they owned in system were sold off to Brotherhood of Spacers.

I’ve handed off control of the customs office to the Raata Zaibatsu’ s Raata Colonly Administration,
for temporary (Or permanent) holding. Under my ownership this customs office will be open to the Guristas, free of charge - I do have my theories they don’t even bother with going though customs offices to get their goods off the surface of a planet, As such I think of this more as a gesture of opening the door for them to use the infrastructure in orbit of their planet.

As long as i maintain ownership of this customs office, it will not work for the interests of a Capsuleer organization, but for the Guristas. Will it be besieged and eventually torn down by a fleet I or my allies could take on? Not out of the question, until then however - i hope the Guristas can make use of this.

I took a small fleet out into Venal tonight. It wasn’t our best outing.

After a loss we realized that were close to Mr. Yaken’s little market and so we decided to see if we could use it to reship our fallen fleetmate.

Turns out we could. It was actually pretty useful to have the little market there.

We stopped by the bar in the system as well and spoke with Mr. Yaken.
I can’t say I was too thrilled at the prospect of walking around on a Guristas station, but I’ve been having luck with trying new things lately and I can’t complain about the service I received. I was almost a little worried when Mr. Yaken’s Guristas-looking security officers were in the same space as my personal guards, but nothing came of it. It’s kind of funny to think that I was the one viewed as suspicious upon entering the bar. Well, me and my three fleetmates, anyway.

The drink I had was pretty good, though.

All-in-all, I didn’t mind my visit to 6NJ8-V.
I can also totally see how my being there was suspicious.

I do apologize for treating you and your fleetmates like suspects at first, it was very inhospitable of me to do that. Though after i learned your people were hear just to crack some Capsuleer skulls, i saw no reason to make any issue about your appearance. The bar we met at was none other than the Hissi fit Lounge aboard the guristas logistics station in system.

In fact it was quite the moment, one that i didn’t anticipate, but rather stumbled across by chance. I’m very pleased that you paid the system a visit, and even more happy that it was of use to your fleet, and even thrice as happy that you would say pubically that you had a fairly good time. From you? I’m blessed to have that kind of endorsement.

I do hope other Capsuleers will give 6NJ8-V a try, I promise it’s not as bad as Caldari propaganda makes it out to be and the local residents don’t bite…That much.

Arsia Elkin! I will take your positive appearance in 6NJ8-V as a good omen for YC 122!

…I got it right this time.

6NJ8-V - The Rabbit’s Warren


Intergalactic summit! I am honored and pleased to announce the opening of a new freeport Fortizar in the system of 6NJ8-V.

The Rabbit’s Warren!

While not owned by the Rabbit himself, the citadel is in fact named in tribute on the Guristas leader. The structure resides in orbit of the Guristas capital world and is open to any and all to come in and use. Featuring currently a clone bay and marketplace district to cater to both Capsuleers and Baseliners at a competitive tax rate to Guristas stations.

The facility is owned and operated by the Brotherhood of Spacers, who are a sponsor of the VPN. Thus, the Prosperity Network will be integrated into the structure’s marketplace alongside the official SCC interface that Capsuleers use. In time i will be slowly moving my stock over to this structure for sale.

We have many attractions in the citadel, pleasures, casinos, restaurants and hotels! This is a place you can just visit if you want, not residence required. The ports are once again open to all, especially the Gurista locals. though if any Caldari executives would like to have a taste of what the gGristas can offer, we can provide it to them - for a price!

If everything goes according to plan, i have no doubt that economic prosperity will brought to this region tenfold, but this is but one step in that goal. Many more must be taken if we’re to reach that reality.

So come! One and all! The Rabbit’s Warren is open to you.

Recently made my way out to the above mentioned station for a lil’ event, although that specific ‘event’ proved to not go so well, the station- and it’s people are wonderful. The place feels secure- and that’s saying a lot considering the location and all of that…

But, if your complaint and the such, it’s a nice resort away from home, at least I’m enjoying sights and comforts of deep space! I think I’ll invest some of my own time into the region, and generally speaking I recommend that others give the region a try as well, given the effort something great can be built here.

You’re a strange one, pilot. I’ve learned that from our encounter aboard the Warren.

Thought I’m pleased to hear you’ll be investing some time into the region. Could always use more Capsuleers looking to pitch in and be apart of this region’s growing economy!

Welcome to Venal!
