Slaves and other livestock

My question may look insignificant from the point of a gamer.

However... Imagine you are real loyal matari. You hate slavery. And you've found a container full of slaves on pirate base. What is your action? I think, you should try to free slaves, then transport them to nearest space station. Or you should call the CONCORD / Liberation Force / whatever to report about slaves in container in space. And what are you doing in game? Nothing! You can't take slaves - it may decrease your security status. You can't call the police - it is out of game mechanics. Slaves are staying in container and disappear in two hours, and this causes unbelievable moral torment to your character! Ugh

If you move away from the slavery problem and look to your station containers, you may find a lot of intelligent life here and there. Forgotten militias, tourists, marines and even VIPs are forced to spend better part of their lives in capsuleer container only because somebody forgot to finish a mission years ago! You can sell them to the market. Quite so! However, this should bring more unbelievable moral torment to your character! Ugh

The solution looks easy.
1) Add option to reprocess "slaves" to "freed slaves" at the moment then matari/gallente/caldari loots slaves from container or from wreck in space. OR to spawn blue frigate which transports slaves to safe place.
2) Add agents to CONCORD stations to exchange freed slaves and other forgotten livestock from missions to LPs, for example.

Reprocessing would be fine...
Carbon would be sufficient....

We in the New Order of Highsec have been providing this service for more than 4 years now, liberating highsec slaves from the chains of mining.

For the rest of your slave reprocessing needs, you have The Scope (they're risking their personnel in the Gallente-Caldari warzone for a reason).

Shut up and go back to work!

Slavery in new eden is actually in a pretty good state currently. It is not necessary to help those worthless creatures and if your running short of them, you can simply buy as many m³ fresh slaves as needed.

Honestly, CCP should put dev-efforts into important things like some kind of an amusement luxury-capital ship.

Most RP is this simple. Even though any seven people will have 9 views on any topic.
I sell slaves at much less than regional average as part of my RP.
I mean yeah ok, slavery is bad, but money is money yo.

If you stumble upon slaves and free them, make sure to first forward them to a Trauma Treatment Facility!

Ha!

What is even funnier if you get them into minmatar space and drop them in can on the gate (thinking maybe minmatar bros will take care of them or something) Minmatar officials will shoot and destroy the can! Pirate

What really happens...

Remember that capsuleers are no longer human, they are immortals in the old Greek sense... whiney, demanding, uncaring, and aloof.

Look at that from the RP standpoint. Firstly, the cops are cynics. They know capsuleers are generally criminals, mass murderers and moral monsters. Secondly, the cops are suspicious. Sir, are these your slaves in your cargohold? Can anyone confirm that? Thirdly, the cops are lazy and need quota. Look, this guy has slaves on board, ergo he's a perpetrator, case closed, I'm getting promoted.

And finally you think some patrol cruiser captain really cares about a few slaves in that overpopulated world? It's easier to destroy you with the illegal cargo and file the paperwork.

Caldari converts slave to "janitor for life"
Gallente converts slave to "poverty stricken drug addict"
minmatar converts slave to "gang member"

When some of us rescue those slaves, they had to protect them from other capsuleers and evils of this world. Unfortunately there are no people kind enough to treat them how few of us, kind people, can. So they stay with us. You could say they are slaves to our kindness. In meantime they learn how to sing, make good food, care about house, doing jobs that will prepare and educate them until they feel they can go and live on their own.

I have many slaves, slavers, marines, exotic dancers, janitors, etc. etc. They party a lot, eat my long limbed roes, wheat, and drink water and wine.
I also take a slaver hound whenever I undock for companionship. They also love to take a ride.

If there were a game mechanic to send "livestock" to a planet then I would gladly oblige. Until then, they seem happy to maintain my ships and keep my hangar areas clean.

My slaves and other personal work for me.

Why free them then they can just be caught again because of the corrupt? when being the better owner suffices for their needs.
