Amarr local was lit up with reports of her Avatar in system and I saw her in local briefly before she left. Jumping into Sarum Prime and warping to the graveyard beacon, I was surrounded by hundreds of other capsuleers eager for a glimpse of the empress. Already a number of Amarr Navy dreadnoughts were on field and it wasn't long before her Avatar warped in.
[19:54:44] Jamyl Sarum I > To remember, that a little over seven years ago the wreckage scattered before your eyes still burned, was still fresh.
[19:54:19] Jamyl Sarum I > Pilots loyal to the Amarr Empire, we come together at this location today, observed by the watchful eyes of God, not to celebrate a victory for his chosen children, not to mark an anniversary, but to remember.
[19:55:08] Jamyl Sarum I > The aftermath of a battle that changed the course of history for the Empire and her citizens, the lord’s chosen children, charged with enlightening those who have not yet found salvation.
[19:55:42] Jamyl Sarum I > July 10th, YC110 was a day on which the Empire delivered a decisive message. A message that echoed through every cloister, hall, and atrium of New Eden in one voice. His voice.
[19:56:03] Jamyl Sarum I > The message was absolute. His will shall be obeyed. His bidding shall be done, and his might shall be expressed through the actions of his chosen people. The Amarr.
[19:56:32] Jamyl Sarum I > Those who are enlightened shall ascend. Those who step into the light shall be redeemed, the sins of their past cleansed, so that they may know salvation.
[19:57:00] Jamyl Sarum I > Those who oppose the will of God, those who burn the olive branch extended to them by the Lord, those who do not seek enlightenment, shall be condemned.
[19:57:14] Jamyl Sarum I > They shall be punished, and shall drown in their own blood.
[19:57:31] Jamyl Sarum I > Seven years ago we witnessed the Lord’s hand at work, when those who chose to defy His will were punished for their indiscretions.
[19:58:03] Jamyl Sarum I > The Lord spoke, and blasted a hole so large in their racial memory that they will not dare again to tread foot on these hallowed grounds.
[19:58:21] Jamyl Sarum I > We continue to protect our borders from the unjustified aggression from the Republic, as their warmongering leader continues to beat the drums of war.
[19:58:51] Jamyl Sarum I > We continue to provide for our people, God’s chosen, as those who attempt to defy the Lord continue to fail in their attacks on our way of life.
[19:59:36] Jamyl Sarum I > Today however, we face a new threat. A threat far greater than the foolish aspirations of a lesser race who remain unwilling to accept their true place as servants of His will.
[20:00:04] Jamyl Sarum I > A threat not created of the Lord’s work. An abomination that reared its head as one of our oldest and most valued capsuleer loyalist organizations, Curatores Veritatis Alliance, celebrated while at ease from combat duty.
[20:00:38] Jamyl Sarum I > While we do not yet understand the motives of this force, their intentions, or their will, the Drifters must be regarded as a threat, and the Empire must ensure that her borders remain secure.
[20:02:22] Jamyl Sarum I > For your support, the Empire remains eternally grateful.
[20:02:40] Jamyl Sarum I > Together we will show those who attempt to defy His will that the Wrath of God is immense. His Justice is swift and decisive. His tolerance is limited.
[20:02:57] Jamyl Sarum I > Through our hardship, through our struggle, and through the tests that the Lord places before us we will persevere, and we will find our salvation.
[20:03:17] Jamyl Sarum I > Together, we will face this threat as a solid wall. Unwavering. Unswaying. Resolute. Immovable and unshakable. Through our defense of our hallowed ground this threat will find no breach.
[20:03:36] Jamyl Sarum I > We will embrace this threat with faith as our fire. With our belief in the word of God we will consume it, burning away the evil until only we shall remain.
[20:03:46] Jamyl Sarum I > A god’s chosen our faith will be our weapon, for within it lies the path to salvation.
[20:05:04] Jamyl Sarum I > Mentor Raish? What is your purpose here?
[20:05:55] Peviad Vamai > We are investigating potential existential threats under the terms of the ninth condicil to the Yulai Convention.
[20:06:01] Hassin Khara > ATTENTION SOCIETY OF CONSCIOUS THOUGHT VESSEL - CEASE AND DESIST WITH ALL SCANNING ACTIVITY IMMEDIATELY
[20:06:28] Jamyl Sarum I > Under whose authority do you operate?
[20:06:29] Peviad Vamai > Our activities are lawful and essential.
[20:07:19] Peviad Vamai > I repeat the ninth codicil to the Yulai Convention authorizes investigation of potential existential threats.
[20:07:32] Hassin Khara > ATTENTION SOCIETY OF CONSCIOUS THOUGHT VESSEL - CEASE AND DESIST WITH ALL SCANNING ACTIVITY IMMEDIATELY AND RETREAT TO SAFE DISTANCE OF 100 KILOMETRES FROM [EF] SERAPH
[20:09:30] Jamyl Sarum I > Raish. Respond Immediately. WHAT ARE YOUR INTENTIONS?
[20:10:00] Peviad Vamai > Their communications have ceased, Empress.
[20:10:08] Hassin Khara > ATTENTION SOCIETY OF CONSCIOUS THOUGHT VESSEL - REPEAT - CEASE AND DESIST WITH ALL SCANNING ACTIVITY IMMEDIATELY AND RETREAT TO SAFE DISTANCE OF 100 KILOMETRES FROM [EF] SERAPH
[20:10:51] Matshi Raish > Empress Jamyl,I say in public that our presence and actions here are lawful under the terms of the ninth codicil to the Yulai Convention.
[20:11:13] Hassin Khara > ATTENTION ALL AMARR NAVY AND LOYALIST VESSELS - STAND TO - WEAPONS READY
[20:12:02] Hassin Khara > MENTOR RAISH - CEASE AND DESIST SCANNING, AND RETREAT TO SAFE DISTANCE - ONE ZERO ZERO KILOMETERS. AKNOWLEDGE IMMEDIATELY.
[20:13:49] Jamyl Sarum I > Amarr Navy escort, engage at will.
[20:15:01] Hassin Khara > ALL IMPERIAL AND LOYALIST VESSELS, WEAPONS FREE, PRIMARY TARGET IS [SCT] ENLIGHTENMENT - MATSHI RAISH - GNOSIS CLASS
[20:20:10] Jamyl Sarum I > The Empire will not tolerate threats to our security, and will continue to protect our borders to our full capability.
[20:24:39] Jamyl Sarum I > Once again, loyalists to the Empire prove their capability, and their resolve.
