Storm Clouds Gather in Elonaya

Ever since the New Order annexed Elonaya, Agents have been rolling into the system and bumping miners who refuse to be liberated. Mining fees have been collected, harsh words have been exchanged, and many enemy ships have been destroyed while unsuccessfully attacking our Agents.


Ever since I brought the good news to Elonaya, miner Heavy Met4l Queen has fomented rebellion, declaring herself the leader of the resistance.


She even went as far as naming herself the "Supreme Defender of Elonaya", and has spent her time trying to organize the unhappy mass of Elonaya miners into an opposition movement.


At times, HMQ has attempted to draw a distinction between the Agents and the supposedly evil force that misguides them:


Why not simply flee to other systems, as some suggested?


HMQ advises the resistance the draw a line here, and to hold that line no matter what the cost.


Meanwhile, the gears of the anti-New Order machinery turn slowly:


As time goes on, hope of a peaceful solution is running out. Each side prepares for war.


According to Agent reports, the resistance movement is lacking in resources, and they fill their fellow miners' ears with desperate pleas:


Agent Tubrug1 came under attack from a member of the main pet alliance of Against All Authorities, which sacrificed a tornado while trying to kill him.


Killmail here.


Relations between New Order Agents and the local Elonaya miners are strained; finding common ground is difficult. As the tension rises, nerves become frayed. There are ominous warning signs as the miners lash out against the New Order Agents sworn to protect them:


With tempers flaring, Elonaya resembles a tinderbox. All it would take is one stray spark to set the whole place alight...

  2. But... Miners are greedy, self-centered animals, Akagar... Why would they give another of their kind even 0.01 ISK?

  3. You know, I'm starting to understand why Miners like to compare James to Hitler. At first, he seems like an asshole, but when you think about it, he's actually a kind of hero. Even if you don't like to admit it, from a purely technological point of view, Hitler was a hero. If he hadn't done what he did, we wouldn't have had World War 2, and thus we wouldn't have had all the tecnological advancements that came with the war (maybe we still would, but it would come at a slower pace). We wouldn't have the environmentally friendly transportation we have today, if Hitler hadn't wanted to use as little fuel as possible for transporting the Jews to the Concentration Camps. We wouldn't have had as good radio-transmitters and receivers if the nobody needed to inform civilians about the state of the war.

    Think about it, and you'll see even Hitler could be considered a hero.

    And no, I'm not a Nazi, and even if I were, it's still legal by law to be a Nazi where I live. I'm just a tolerant person, who knows how to see things in a different light.

  4. Comparing James315 with Hitler is completely wrong.

    As J.R. 'Bob' Dobbs told, James315 is the inimitable, reincarnate archetype of his Imperial Majesty Joshua Norton I - Emperor of these United States and Protector of Mexico.

    Good to here about the resistance movement, the Sacred Chao start to spin for a higher glory of Eris Discordia.

  7. Arctic Dungeon?

    I hope Heavy Met4l Queen keeps her clone up to date. Or hide somewhere deep in space.
