Given our strong, healthy relationship with the rest of the highsec community, you might be surprised to know that the New Order actually does not have any officially-designated diplomats. As I've often said, our Agents--the soldiers who faithfully serve on the frontline each and every day--are the best ambassadors we could possibly have.
Agent Ophidia Black encountered a troubled soul named Coolina mining in highsec in a Retriever named "SHOOT ME". Coolina thought it was better to be "cool", even if it meant her own death. Ophidia put that belief to the test.
As soon as Coolina's Retriever was dead, she started to get very un-cool.
Coolina unleashed her best "yo momma" jokes in local, for all to see. At the same time, she was convinced that it was "immature" to gank mining vessels.
The "yo momma" jokes didn't have the desired effect. Instead of encouraging her fellow miners to flock to the rebel banner, they started to turn against her.
Coolina doubled-down on her failed strategy, further driving a wedge between herself and the local mining community.
Meanwhile, Ophidia demonstrated the way to be truly cool in highsec--to follow the Code.
With her venom exhausted, Coolina settled into spouting some carebear clichés. Coolina wasn't ready to join the New Order just yet, but Ophidia's quick thinking enabled her to lower the temperature in the system. Another victory for New Order diplomacy!
If you want to become an Agent of the New Order, you must learn how to deal with a wide variety of different kinds of people. Although all carebears are pretty much the same, they speak different languages. English is a good first choice. If you want to learn another language, I'd say go with Russian. We have a lot of inroads still left to make.
Ophidia and friends killed Sasha Vladivostok's heavily-tanked Mackinaw. A tank is only as good as its lowest resistance, however; Sasha's had a big ol' gaping hole in the "mining permit" category. He was defenseless. Sasha sent Ophidia an ominous warning in lieu of the customary 10 million isk payment.
After Ophidia requested clarification, Sasha provided it:
Just because highsec carebears are defenseless doesn't mean they'll admit it. Sasha spun an elaborate series of traditional Russian bluffs involving pig-cutting. I know some people like their bacon, but this was ridiculous. It was up to Ophidia to defuse the situation and educate young Sasha about the Code.
Reaching across the cultural divide is hard, slow work. Miracles don't happen every day. But the New Order isn't here for a day. We're in this thing for the long haul. Don't be surprised if one day you see an Agent Coolina or an Agent Sasha Vladivostok helping enforce the Code in an asteroid belt near you!
