At 20:14 today, two Providence-class vessels impacted the TES Purity at full speed. Each contained 2,891,000 units of Antimatter L ammunition.

And a postcard from Poitot.

As the ships made impact, a nearby Rote Kapelle Scorpion used an ECM Bust to trigger the explosives in the assassination attempt. The attempt, while angering CONCORD and aggressing over 60 nearby pilots, did not appear to damage Empress Catiz's titan.

Empress Catiz and the Empire represent the antithesis to Rote Kapelle's beliefs and ideals.


Madam Risen —

I have no strong opinion on your attempted assassination of our pathetic, subhuman, money-grubbing merchant excuse of an Empress whose only redeeming value is her house's stuffing its slaves full of TCMCs.

I do, however, object to your murder of twelve slavers. Slavers are among the most favored of the Chosen People of God, and these twelve that you have martyred are being carried on the wings of the sefrim to the highest Paradise, where they will delight for all eternity in the destruction of the Wicked.

Wait what, aren't you supposed to be retired. Don't tell me your retirement coffin is not comfy enough.

Oh no! Whatever am I going to do? I can't have people being red to me!

Actually wait, could you remind me who you are again? I seem to have absolutely no idea who you are or why i should be scared.

I have been chuckling to myself about that.

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.

The false empress enslaves you. She takes the fruits of YOUR efforts and turns it only towards her own power. You are a capsuleer, the elite of the elite, spending as much money on every shot of your guns as most see in their lifetime. Yet you scurry about doing her bidding.

She has no honor. She takes and takes and takes with no thought for you. Her success is truthfully your success, if you could but rise up and take it back.

Cast off your chains. Take your strength and use it for yourself. Become truly free. That is the Rote Kapelle way.

Yup. That's totally what Ayallah and I were both doing there: scurrying about doing the Empress' bidding. If only we could be more like... who were you again?

I vaguely remember something about Rote Kapelle being like, Star Fraction. Space anarchists. Maybe one was an offshoot of the other.

Except Rote Kapelle tended towards more explosions in space, and less text-walls on IGS.

The details are clouded by the mists of time.

I could look the details up.

But I won't.

The degree to which one is in the eye of the slave and master is a poor yardstick for free men.

You should probably recheck that statement, you appear to be missing an object for critical parts of the first clause.

For sheer energy output for matter used, it's a little hard to beat antimatter. Only,

1. There's not actually a lot of it in a hybrid charge (it's in a diffuse plasma state held in suspension to keep it from coming in contact with matter if someone, say, drops it);

2. Most explosive damage done in atmosphere comes from the blast wave ("explosive overpressure"), which can pulp people pretty nicely a disturbing distance away. Space: no atmosphere, no blast wave. It's why so few of our weapons actually can catch more than one target even though nuclear-tipped munitions are pretty common in both artillery shells and missiles. Considering what that Titan was probably designed to withstand, they must have been basically bumping hulls. I'm a little impressed it did anything at all.

... as for Rote Kapelle....

Even if I admire their audacity a little, this was, by any measure, a stunt, and kind of an example of why anarchist culture (if that's the word) is one I ...

... just, don't have any interest in.

At all.

Even Sansha's Nation's more interesting (the psychology of their free-willed elites, which I gather do exist? must be fascinating), just, if I ever did visit I'd probably never leave.

I'm actually inclined to thank you lot. Watching the Empress not give a flying **** while your terror plot unraveled around her was the single greatest piece of television I've seen since war broadcasts from Operation Highlander.

Ya, I was going more for nuclear rounds have more explosive material in them (propellant as well as the nuclear material itself) than antimatter rounds. Antimatter is more destructive in that regard but quantity over quality as they say.

Violence, as usual, begets violence.

Also, Cherandine, those glasses do NOT fit you.

War is murder. It always has been, always will be. Murder in the name of God. Freedom. Your country. Whatever it is, it is murder. I am already against the next set of wars.

Thank you for noticing, working as intended.

Details are important in my line of work and it's good to get explicit feedback occasionally that isn't local salt and corpses under my guns.
