Ladies and gentlemen of highsec, another anti-Order resistance movement has entered the ring.
JTClone Ares is the latest to proclaim himself as the new leader of the rebellion. On paper, at least, his résumé is impressive: He was the founder and CEO of a 14-member highsec mining corp called Damned Defeat which was awoxed by the New Order. After giving all of the corp shares to one of the awoxers, he lost control of the corp and was demoted to the position of "CODE. war bride". He then left Damned Defeat to become an independent contractor.
Now JTClone runs a 2-member corp called Arcane New Order. The corp's goal? The total destruction of the New Order. JTClone announced his intentions in a SoundCloud recording. Yes, for the first time, an anti-Order rebel has created his own SoundCloud file, rather than being recorded by one of our Agents.
JTClone's is an "Independence Day" style speech, complete with stirring background music. But that's just to get people excited. The real substance of JTClone's anti-Order ideology came in a lengthy interview he did with an unknown interviewer:
Although the interview questions are all softballs--possibly written by JTClone himself--some of them managed to give him a lot of trouble. During the interview, we finally get an answer to the question of why JTClone handed over control of his corp to the awoxers: In exchange, Agent/awoxer Jerry Rin promised to help JTClone get the 14-member highsec mining corp into Pandemic Legion. The interview is also useful because it allows us to see the New Order and the Code through the eyes of a rebel carebear.
True, Arcane New Order presently has only two members. In a few years, though, who knows? That number could easily triple, especially if JTClone buys an extra account or two. His courage and charisma have already attracted at least one new follower:
JTClone received words of advice and encouragement from a gentleman named Kalorned.
...better known as Agent Kalorned. He has been featured in many MinerBumping posts and is too darn proud of the Code to disguise the fact in his bio. His EVEmail pinpointed two other rebels that JTClone might find to be valuable additions to his organization:
The New Order's spies are unmatched in highsec. Would JTClone see through Kalorned's disguise--or lack thereof?
JTClone was pleased to have Kalorned's support. On July 2nd, JTClone planned to form a new alliance and a new coalition. He was too modest to call himself Saviour or King; he would merely be a fellow Capsuleer.
A master of propaganda, Kalorned realized that July 4th might be an even better day to make the declaration. It was an easy thing for JTClone to miss. However, it would postpone the beginning of the rebel alliance/coalition's campaign by two valuable days.
JTClone took Agent Kalorned's advice and pushed back his timetable. He already had his master plan mapped out: First, stop the New Order from killing any more miners or freighters. Second, declare war against the New Order, take the offensive, and destroy them all.
Kalorned, already becoming indispensible as the chief lieutenant of the new resistance movement, recommended tech II fitted Hyperions as the new rebel fleet doctrine.
JTClone was enthusiastic about the tech II Hyperions, but he also wanted everything else. Now they were all set for the Fourth of July. If all went according to plan, it would be the beginning of the end of the New Order. Could this be it? We will have to wait and see.
