Coreli Corporation declares war against Intaki Prosperity Initiative

For the past year and a half Coreli has been on deployment with the Naraka alliance in the curse region, our goal was to disrupt Sansha’s Nation incursions into the curse region while the Angel Cartel focused its attention elsewhere.

With the completion of this campaign Serpentis high command has requested we direct our forces back to Federation space in order to assist them with safeguarding their operations and interests in the region of Placid.

False statements such as Serpentis pirates who wreak havoc on the local population, destroy lives and property, and disrupt commerce; announced by the ILF along with attacks on peaceful Serpentis trading ships cannot be tolerated.

For this reason, at 22:38 today, the Coreli Directorate issued a declaration of war against the Intaki Prosperity Initiative, the purpose of this war is to disrupt the IPI’s anti-serpentis military operations throughout Federation space either by decimating the IPI’s combat and industrial capabilities or by having the IPI formally surrender.

IPI diplomats can contact myself or Hulemand to discuss terms of surrender, should they wish to resolve this matter quickly.



Edit: Apparently images no longer work :?

The Coreli Corporation is recruiting.

The people of Intaki, Placid and beyond are well aware of the realities of the Serpentis threat. Any capsuleer who has spent more than five minutes innocently mining the various asteroid belts will be familiar with the arrival of Serpentis combat vessels who, without provocation, will target and engage with violent intent.

Therefore, while it's common practice for opposing sides in any conflict to make use of misinformation and propaganda, I think it's a stretch to attempt to spin Serpentis activities in the Placid region as peaceful and honestly expect people to believe it.

Likewise, it is nothing new or original for a pirate organisation to bend itself to Serpentis' will or seek to intimidate Intaki and its people into capitulation at the threat of violence. It has happened before and no doubt it shall happen again, but throughout Intaki has endured.

The IPI and its allies have successfully challenged Serpentis operations in Placid for over five years, removing Serpentis combat vessels and installations where ever they are encountered. No threats of violence against us will deter us from our goal of improving security across the Intaki Sovereignty.

IPI pilots stand ready to deny this latest Serpentis offensive into Intaki space and it is hoped that Coreli Corporation leadership soon realise the futility of their attempts.

Which operations would these be, the production of illegal narcotics? Illegal blockades of civilian gates and residential communes in space? Attempted insertion of both biological agents and armed militants into Federal territory with the intent to deploy against the populace?

I've heard this bullshit spin before when I was much more naive about the state of affairs in the galaxy and was told that the Cartel was a humanitarian group that only seeked to gain riches to aid the poor, and fund their efforts fighting a war against Nation.

There is nothing benevolent about an organisation of deranged scientists who make their fortunes selling their narcotic wares to the vulnerable in society, with no care or concern for their wellbeing. Who then use a portion of their profits fund a private military off the back of the Angel Cartel, purely to protect their investments and spread their influence.


I support the IPI in their efforts, and offer aid should they require it necessary in this conflict.

Though I am not one to condone, trust or propagate conspiracies, it would be nice to see a capsuleer representative of Federation interests refute any link between these threats and their own interests in Placid. This would be of benefit not only to silence those than may wish to draw links between Serpentis activity on behalf of the Federation and FedMil activity, but also assuage the potential inference that this is yet another unofficial attempt to stymie and degrade the frankly heroic actions of Intaki Independence advocates through bully boy tactics.

This activity is frankly disgusting and the continued threat posed to the sanctity of the Intaki peoples, their colonies and livelihoods is impossible to overstate. I offer my assistance in providing a diplomatic bridge between the IPI and my colleagues in the Caldari Militia and satellite organisations, in the interests of recognising the bravery of the Intaki people and assisting, where we can, to mitigate the effects of Serpentis predation on the peoples of Placid. I have no doubt both sides of the capsuleer war in the region would use this to their advantage with or without Federation/Coreli cooperation (as unlikely as I believe that to be), and posit that stability under the auspices of no-strings assistance from my State supporting allies would be of benefit to ensuring a swift and decisive resolution to this attack on a people close to my heart.

Fight hard, cousins, and know that you are not alone in body or spirit when it comes to throwing off the chains of oppression, be they 'legitimate' government or piratical.

I personally believe attempting to drag this into a Federal/State slanging match is a disservice to the current situation. Such a conspiracy theory would be radical to suggest without any proof, and as unfound as a counter notion that this action can be linked to the State as a means to further create hostility between the people of Intaki and the rest of the Federation.

That, and said radical conspiracy theorists would also claim your statement is also an silver tongued attempt to assimilate the Intaki into the State. Neither side needs to make a political statement on such crazed theories.


This is nothing but Criminal activity and it's attempt to shout down anyone who opposes it. Bickering about tinfoil hattery will not resolve the issue, standing alongside the citizens of Intaki to combat this threat will.

When your gut instincts tell you something is wrong, trust them. When your heart tells you something is right, ignore it, check with your brain first. Accept nothing, challenge everything.

You understand my fears exactly, Mr Marellus. Hopefully a Federation representative will be forth coming to silence such ludicrous claims, as are sure to be made by those with far less conscience and concern for the Intaki people, and prevent any such aspersions or misdirection.

As I am an immigrant residing (with citizenship) in the State, with only my allies to speak for as any degree of military capitol, I must stress that 'radical conspiracy theorists' would be wrong. I have a long and vocal history of echoing the desires of the IPI for a free Intaki, regardless of my citizenship in the State.

I will leave with just this to add, my proffered support stands and will continue to stand for the duration of this unfortunate criminal act of aggression.

We of the Ishkone-Raata Enforcement directive are ready to assist our long time allies in the Intaki Prosperity Initiative. The support of the Serpentis that the Coreli Corporation is bringing forth by declaring war on the protectors of the innocent inhabitants of Intaki space should be enough for this community to understand that they are nothing more then a band of thugs, I-RED will come forth from beyond the reaches of the State and stand by our old friends Intaki Prosperity Initiative.

Destruction of infrastructure that benefits the innocent populace of the Intaki sourrounds is not something we can abide.

It has been too long since we have shoulder to shoulder with our comrades in the IPI and look forward to doing so once again if the situation requires.

I disagree.

Serpentis take advantage of a lifestyle of excess that exists throughout the Federation, peddling their narcotics to an unsuspecting people. Their promises of care free indulgence are soon broken as the innevitable dependency takes root and pains of withdrawal take their toll on the victims.

No, Serpentis does not give the people what they want. They give the people what they come to need.

Only through intervention, through challenging Serpentis when and where possible to interrupt the supply of these poisons, and through concerted treatment and recovery programmes can this cycle be prevented.

What the people want is a stable, secure peace to go about their lives, free from the interference of drug pushers and pirates. Simply something Serpentis cannot provide.

Our thanks to all who have offered IPI their support. In addition to these public statements, we have also received offers of assistance from other interested parties through formal CONCORD channels. We are humbled and grateful that so many are willing to stand alongside us in the fight against piracy.

Serpentis are a blight upon New Eden. If their intentions were magnanimous as Joshua Foiritain wants everyone to believe, we capsuleers would not be employed by reputable agents on a regular basis to eliminate their forces from our skies. We would not find them infesting our asteroid belts, waiting to prey upon miners or patrollers alike. Their ships would not fire upon us when unprovoked. They would not lurk in dark corners like vipers hoping for unsuspecting prey to stray into striking distance. We would not hear the distress calls of their victims.

There is no nobility nor honor, no peace nor prosperity, in trafficking drugs. These pirates know only greed and a perverse desire to create dependency in order to exert dominance. IPI will not stand for it, and neither will our friends.

You can disagree all you like. If the Serpentis weren't selling things people wanted, they'd be out of business, neh?

Not that narcotics are ever hard to unload, but we can't bemoan people wanting to escape their drudgery now and then.

Ah, the old "we are shooting them, therefore they must be the bad guys."

No matter what forces in which skies, someone out there will pay you for removing them. As a moral compass, it leaves something to be desired.

I'm not sure what they've told you in capsuleer school, but not all that your gaze surveys is yours to do with as you please. These dark corners are claimed territory. Those spacerocks contain resources vital to the factions' survival; naturally the locals are going to be a bit annoyed if some arrogant capsuleer parks his exhumer in there and starts stripping away the entire bloody belt. Let alone "patrolling" it with the express purpose of eliminating Serpentis vessels, and then acting indignant at "unprovoked" aggression.

And all the Angels do is lurk in closets, waiting to drag naughty Minmatar children off to beady-eyed, whip-wielding Amarrian slavers, yes? Caricature.

It warms an old pilot’s heart to see our cause, the Serpentis cause of liberating and opening the federation market to the benefits that modern booster technology provides, defended by our new friends in Anshar Incorporated.

Uninformed and ignorant, our enemies claim that we are merely lousy criminals, petty drug pushers. No my friends, since the dawn of booster technology we have advanced far, reducing the side effects – which we admit the first generation of boosters contained, to a level where we today provided know-how and ? support to major corporations inside the federation. Corporations that have recognized that booster are the future, not just for the elitist pod pilots, but that wholesome and strengthening boosters will be a part of everyone's lives.

We do not take side in the conflict between the federation and the Intaki people, but we cannot idlely standby as the freedom fighters – or terrorist depending on the eyes viewing - of a the Intaki Liberation Front disturb the important work of the Serpentis for a better tomorrow.

Serpentis loyallists being defended by a Media corporation made up of former members of a Cartel loyallist Alliance?

No, nothing suspicious about that whatsoever....


No really, you don't need to read the DED report on these people, I'm sure it's clean.

This is true. Anshar is pretty openly Serpentis, with all the business that entails, good or bad. They also happen to run a newsfeed on the side.

You're referring to Arcadia News Network? Even "running" is a bit overstated, then.

As far as I'm aware, it was started up as a side project of Milo's, but was later sold off. Anshar is still among the major shareholders, but does not exert editorial control. Some of our pilots write articles for the feed, but they're hardly the only contributors. All articles are clearly labeled with the contributor's name. Any bias you may perceive is the contributors' own responsibility.

If anybody's terribly worried about which way the feed is leaning, perhaps you can be bothered to write a few columns yourself? If it's interesting and halfway well-written, it will likely get accepted, regardless of what names you call Salvador Sarpati in it.

I had confused Anshar with Arcadia, though there are still connections between the two.


Regardless, Serpentis loyallists defending Serpentis loyallists, it's hardly a trustworthy recommendation of good character.
