Idealistic idiot? Funny to read that from you, Alizabeth. I heard you had some sort of breakdown, perhaps a prayer and a calm evening in church will help with that?

CONCORD appears more than happy to allow capsuleers to resolve their issues among themselves. Which essentially means if you're any good at the old ultraviolence the consequences for any actions undertaken, no matter how terrible or atrocious others may find it, remains effectively nil.

From personal experience, about the only real consequence of upsetting Amarrian loyalist capsuleers was...

...

...

...oh, right, they don't invite you to their parties anymore. Yeah, that was about it.

All the ones I faced in direct combat were about as useful at it as a chocolate tea cup.

Still, their crews did let me send that joke birthday present about cultural relativism, existential apathy, and edginess to Kernher a few months back. Praise be the bounties of divine providence. Deus Vult, etcetera.

I bet none of her friends or comrades even remembered. Those Monsters.

I just cut myself reading that. Look at how edgy and nihilistic you are.

I will point out it's a little more then just not coming to parties.

Every Amarr loyalist now has to question if it is appropriate to be seen in Drifter Fleets commanded by pilots from Rote. This affects ARC just as much as it does Lady Steward Lagann's corporation. CVA is still discussing its position on this so I can't comment further.

For other events hosted by pilots from Rote like the up coming AT viewing party, again the same question applies. Pilots from the Rote alliance that have little or nothing to do with this forum, or the wider capsuleer community we are a part of, have singlehandedly caused a diplomatic mess that the adults are going to have to sort out. Potentially for years to come.

It's these repercussions and the affect that they will have on genuine friendships that is at stake. I'm hoping for the sake of Lady Steward Lagann that we'll be able to move past this issue and continue as normal, but that just isn't guaranteed at this point.

For the sake of 'keks' as much as political statement, Rote has landed a number of their own pilots a pile of **** to deal with that they just plain didn't deserve, and it's already spreading to affect other groups and their interests.

I kindly ask again that the dog pile ends, everyone moves on, and we can be left to pick up the pieces of the ties damaged by this. Ties damaged quite directly by Rote's own hands.

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. Using a transmitter, two consumer electronics, a self harmonizing power core, and a thermonuclear power unit, they were wired into large bombs. Attached to each were six slavers. 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.

Your attempt to sabotage the Empire has been noticed. Enjoy your status as an enemy of the Empire, the State and the rest of civilized humanity. But please keep in mind...

Thank you for the invitation! I'll surely write it down and come to meet you in person, or even better - to flash you with my shining hull. However, I am a bit busy currently in our space dealing with those capsuleers, whose attacks actually manage to cause some sort of destruction... besides their own vessels, obviously.

Priorities, ya know.

It warms my heart to see the "slavery cultists" and their apologists squaring off against the null criminals. This is almost as good as the crap that was spewed in Amarr local chat on coronation day.

A few years ago, I tried to arrange an assassination of one of the Tribal chiefs. I think that MiniLuv tried to hit the Starkmanir one, but I'd have to go look. Not only did Goonswarm make the attempt, they exposed that CONCORD was illegally letting the Minmatar use their shielding technology, which is why the assassination attempt failed. (Sorry, Arrendis.)


Don't apologize. A target's a target, and it would've been splashy as hell. Would I have been pissed off if you'd succeeded? Probably. I might even have headed home to start working on some sort of retribution strike. But you didn't, and just trying it is Goony as feck. Difference is, nobody in CONDI is out there owing fealty to the Republic, or to the Tribal Chiefs. The Matari in the swarm? We're not part of the power structure. A holder is, however minorly. Just the attempt places her in a position where she cannot be loyal to both sides of the conflict. The Republic likely would've branded us all criminals if you'd succeeded. But they forgive that sort of thing with a bit of work.

The Empire doesn't seem the sorts to be forgiving of associating with those who attempt regicide.

She's not the one who had the breakdown.

She's also not the one who has to worry about HoleSquad's leash being slipped in a bunch of very specific C2 systems.

Look at you, having a finger in every pie, as if some sort of an ultimate spymaster.

The "supervillain" bravado is getting old, Arrendis. I almost imagined you in a chair, striking a feline, staring at a screen.

Careful now, Mr. Victorian. ARC and I parted ways on more or less amicable terms. I would hate for you to change that.
I did say you could have been a naif. If the shoe fits, you must wear it.

I don't know, it seems Mr Booly should give more open and definitive answer. After 4th or 5th time who would have any doubt that he personally don't care, just saying.

Not a finger in every pie, Victorian. Not even close. Just a keen appreciation of how much fun some of my compatriots would get out of blowing up those Basilisks. Do you think for one moment that they wouldn't? Do you think they'd have any problems doing it? It's one thing when you've got one of our along to keep you safe. It's quite another once you start taking cheap shots at her in public.
