Resistance Is Closed, Part 1
Since the dawn of our brave new era in highsec, there have been those who rebelled against the New Order. Rebellion has largely consisted of people encouraging someone else to do something about us. But occasionally, resistance movements are created in-game. Then they close down.
Some, like KILL A CULT corporation, remain open. The founders of corps like these just don't have the heart to give up, even if they can't attract new members.
SPIONKOP, the "leader" of KILL A CULT, last updated his followers back in February, complaining about something a New Order Agent said in local. Judging by the lack of subsequent activity, Agent Droopsack had the right diagnosis: The game's over.
Other resistance movements merely change in form. The legendary rebel spy Ledrian Saisima wasn't able to get much support for his counter-Order intel corp...
...But he's got a new plan, which he will unveil on January 1, 2014. We're living on borrowed time until then.
Ledrian's not the first to set a date certain for our destruction. blood valentine vowed to deploy the full resources of his corporation against the New Order starting on March 1, 2013.
The corp's motto: "Kill the New Order... or die trying :D". They died trying, I think.
Other anti-Order corps, such as To The Stars, merely speak out against the New Order. They don't seem intent on doing anything. Then, out of the blue, our Agents uncovered a brand-new resistance network developing. An Agent intercepted the following message:
THE GIMA CONSORTIUM was responsible for this communication. They declared the creation of the "New Eden Resistance Coalition". The rebels have their own coalition now!
THE GIMA CONSORTIUM is an alliance, and is affiliated with a corp called the GIMA CODEBREAKERS. Its description tells us that they're the only anti-Order mercenaries around. That might not be a good sign for the rebels, actually.
xxSilverAngelxx is the chief of the propaganda wing of the new rebel alliance. She'll call upon anyone in local to join the effort against us. And against the Goons, of course.
According to GIMA, the Goons are intent on conquering nullsec space(!). Worse yet, now the Goons are trying to gobble up lowsec and highsec, too. So much for all those rebels who always tell us that no one is allowed to claim territory in highsec.
With the Goons on the verge of adding lowsec and highsec to their vast territory, only GIMA stands in the way, by bravely complaining about the New Order and setting up a mailing list. As you might expect, our Agents were keen on learning more about this GIMA resistance group. So they spoke to them. What they uncovered would change everything.
To be continued...
