Although CODE. is easily the most famous of its affiliates, the New Order's mission to enforce the Code transcends corps, alliances, and coalitions.
The New Order uses every weapon at its disposal. More than a few highsec carebears have learned that the wardec mechanic is included in the New Order's deadly arsenal. Corporations of all different sizes, loyal to the Code, surprise carebears by punishing them with wardecs.
Among the wardeccers: Sword of the Saviour corp, of the 315th Circuit Court alliance. They are so feared that their wardec targets often stay docked up for weeks. When this happens, some of the wardeccers switch to their ganker alts. One fine day, the wardecced carebears remained in their holes. The Miniboss corporation, armed with ganker alts, went active.
Akumako's Retriever was the first victim. Shaken to the core, she neglected to offer her betters a "GF" in local.
Despite the warnings provided by a local rebel loudmouth, Noland Ross' Retriever was ambushed and destroyed.
Noland, too, refused to accept responsibility for the loss. As he cursed the gankers, a mysterious fellow with the last name "Balthazarian" made himself known.
Murmured threats bubbled up. Was this a sign of armed rebellion, or just more chatter?
The ganker alts continued to ply their trade. With no choice but to bend to the Code, even the rebels told miners to "look alive". Exactly what we're trying to get them to do.
Owen Shovel's Hulk was incinerated. He claimed not to be AFK, yet he took no heed of the countless warnings in local.
The Balthazarian entered her final form, Babylon Balthazarian. Would she make good on her threats?
Balthazarian was defiant. She denied the legitimacy of the New Order mining permit. Crazy rebels. Do they print their own permits, now?
Though Balthazarian hadn't lifted a finger against the New Order yet, she encouraged others to resist the New Order--and reason.
Then it happened. Balthazarian told the ganker alts to wardec her alliance. She was a member of Industrial War Machine LLC corp, which belonged to the 3dge of D4rkness. alliance. They love to PvP, she said.
Again the rebel cried out for war. She would have it.
