Got to agree with Kim-haani, there. If he'd produced 1,000,000 kill mails of TLF capsuleers I'd have been impressed and more than a little wary.

For the first time since I started the conversation, he looks me dead in the eye. In his gaze are steel jackhammers, quiet vengeance, a hundred thousand orbital bombs frozen in still life.

This is definetly a heresy in its most twisted form.

Fear the God and honor the Empress!

Not yet, he hasn't started sacrificing naked yet.

The message I get from your text is completely different from your interpretation. From what I see 'Blood' is not meant literally, but used as a metaphor. The Minmatar Republic should indeed be destroyed, but not by killing its people. It should be destroyed by assimilating their genetics, their ancestry (their 'blood') belongs to the Empire, like the Udorians and many that followed them were assimilated.

The Blood of the Brutor shall indeed give us strength, but not by spilling it, but by using the strength inherent in its line. The Blood of the Sebiestor shall indeed contribute to our intellect, but not by killing them, but adding their bloodlines to those of the Empire. The wisdom of the Vherokior can be ours, but not by killing every last member of its line, but by offering them a new home within the Empire.

Once we have done that, the sin of our previous failure to assimilate the Matari people will be washed away. You do understand why it is called 'The Reclaiming' I hope? Solar systems are not reclaimed by blowing up their celestial bodies, and peoples are not reclaimed by killing their members.


Pilot Merdaneth —

Although I remain true to essentially literal interpretations of Scripture (and therefore at odds with the liberalism of the present day Theology Council, much less the leftism of the IGS Amarr), I do commend your defense of the contemporary Amarrian faith; apart from Pilot Samira Kernher, none of my interlocutors have offered so robust a rebuttal of my rituals and prophecies. Such criticism sharpens my theses and in the long run — after I have improved my ritual and prophecy — will help draw more souls out from the stupor of contemporary Amarrian liberalism. Amen.

Sacrificing naked slaves, or sacrificing slaves while naked?

There are also crews assigned to each ship, that goes boom, and, unfortunately, I don't know how to estimate total number of losses inside these ships.
After all, in bigger ships not all crew die, some have time to evacuate, others may survive in wreck.
Combat reports don't contain crew loss information.

Honored are the dead, for their legacy guides us.

Maybe if he keeps going, we'll all be reduced to "trembling husks" in a few more years.

I mean, 700 years of occupation and all managed to make us stop resi... err.

Huh.

What?


I'm just confused as to why the senseless killing of helpless captives is supposed to make warriors tremble in fear?

It is a terrorism: rather weak attack on a morale.
It might work against some kind of unprofessional warriors - like, federal "soldiers".
But otherwise, terrorism is just a waste of time and resources. Simple killing these warriors produces greater effect.

Didn't those same "unprofessional" soldiers mop the floor with your titan?

Nauplius,

In my experience there are two types of men that use The Scriptures. The first are in search of answers and wisdom and look to The Scriptures to provide them. The second believe they already have the answers and wisdom and look to The Scriptures to confirm them.

If you are of the second type, which I think you are, arguing Scripture with you doesn't serve any purpose, your mind was already made up before you read its passages.

The Scriptures are not meant to be a tool one can wield to achieve one's own purposes. Trying to do so is a sin. Trying to convince others to do so is heresy. Both cannot be tolerated.

Why don't you two settle this dispute like gentlemen, I say, in a frig-fight? Interceptors? For no crew would be involved. I'd offer myself as second for Merdaneth if he accepts. At the moment I'm not active member of my Militia so my offer is honourable. But I won't feel offended if he choses one of his comrades over myself.

But I always keep my promises, my word, even if to my disadvantage or my certain death. So even if I'm fighting for the Minmatar cause, I think humbly I would qualify for this in aspect of honor.
