The New Order doesn't just conquer highsec, it governs highsec. To serve our people well, we need to know a lot of stuff about the people who live and work in highsec. Basically, we need an all-seeing intelligence apparatus.
Good thing we've got one.
From time to time, New Order Intelligence intercepts "chatter" from carebears attempting to unite against the government (which is to say, us). Such EVEmails never translate into action. However, a perfect highsec means everyone is mentally and emotionally on the same page. Harboring bad thoughts or feelings about the New Order is a serious violation of the Code.
The latest rabble-rousing chain-letter came from Alfonse Layate. You can tell just from reading his employment history that he's up to no good.
This time, the rebellion came with a twist. It originated in lowsec, or so its leader claimed. We all know that the highsec carebears are incapable of organizing. Could lowsec PvP'ers finally do what the bot-aspirants haven't?
Any EVE player ought to hear alarm bells going off when someone appears from out of the blue and asks for money. Nevertheless, anti-Order resistance movements often do request financial support from the miners.
This might be the first time the solicitation EVEmail actually offered some explanation of how the money would be used to fight the New Order.
According to the EVEmail, this organization of lowsec "Jedi" had absolutely no interest in profit. Removing the New Order from highsec would be a selfless act. This is also highly unusual, because the only selfless people I've met in EVE have all been members of the New Order.
The deal was to be sweetened with revenge. This might be appealing to the "victims" of the New Order, if they still believed it was possible to defeat one of our Agents.
The communication ended. No doubt about it, the sender was advocating treason.
Wait a minute, what's that extra bit at the end? I needed to zoom and enhance to make it out...
In fact, it was all an elaborate sting operation. Alfonse Layate is actually Agent Alfonse Layate, a deep-cover operative for the New Order. His EVEmail was sent, with full authorization from the Saviour of Highsec, to gank recipients. Those whose mining vessels had been ganked by members of CODE. were tested for traitorous attitudes.
And the results will shock you.
To be continued...
Brilliant! This actually surprised me.ReplyDelete
The mystery surrounding TrueVolley and their share purchase is now clear at last!ReplyDelete
Oh man, TrueVolley :) He runs a bit of a bot mining army down in Tash-Murkon.Delete
Agent Sophaya Fortelleren and I know him well, and have been forced to distribute Void S ammo at high velocities in his and his bot fleets general direction quite a few times.
I really need to find where he is hanging out these days and make sure he has a valid permit and give him a thank you for the donation to the cause!
Before thanking him, perhaps tell him that his isk was used wisely, and that the rebel cause needs more. Perhaps 20b to "really show those Code guys."Delete
Still see him in Goram now and again...Delete
Look like the Code has won once again! \o/ReplyDelete
This one actually *didn't* surprise me. I knew better than to believe that a rebel is capable of writing a coherent email.ReplyDelete
but this is so much fun!ReplyDelete
This is beautiful! Can't wait for part 2.ReplyDelete
Fantastic stuff! On tenterhooks for next instalment..ReplyDelete
The waiting is TORTURE!ReplyDelete
Ripard, is that you?Delete
Related note: Even the CAPTCHA system used by this blog pays the proper respect to the Savior of High-Sec.ReplyDelete
Praise him. Praise him.Delete
Perhaps a CAPTCHA that only displays pro-New Order phrases could be implemented? In this way, a bot-aspirant or rebel wanting to troll would first be forced to praise James.Delete
Over time, this may serve to cure the rebel of his afflictions.
Or perhaps a randomly chosen trivia question that one could get the answer to by a complete reading of the CODE? 290x, I think you are onto something!Delete
Another example of what is called 'Wishful thinking'...to the extent carebears think....
Great scam !ReplyDelete
PLEASE post part 2 soon!ReplyDelete
Well, at least BM stopped linking a dead blog in his name.ReplyDelete
Roaches in the Sunlight, is this story about the CODE. AT team?ReplyDelete
