Xetic Federation Inaugurates President

  • YC107-01-31

    The largest alliance in the galaxy, The Xetic Federation, inaugurated their first elected president on Saturday in Yulai. Hundreds of Xetic members, as well as representatives from most of the other major alliances, turned out to witness the event and participate in the festivities. The onlookers cheered as Conram of the XTrading Company, and CYVOK of Celestial Horizon were sworn in as President and Vice President respectively. President Conram made a stirring speech about the future and called upon [...]

    Gunship - from CA nobody to War General

    • YC107-01-28

      A little while ago, I had the pleasure to do a little research regarding the rumoured demise of the Curse Alliance. One of the people I interviewed was Gunship, ex Curse Alliance war general. While talking to him, it became apparent that he had a tale to tell. I decided to publish the tale, as it was told to me. From CA nobody to War General. - By Gunship First of all, this is my story; there are thousand of stories. What you read here is based on facts (no lies), my facts, my views and my perception. [...]

      Rise of a New Imperium

      • YC107-01-28

        With the recent collapse of the Curse Alliance, many displaced corps have been trying to find their way in the galaxy. The latest, and surely the biggest, new group to arise from the ashes of the Curse Alliance is Imperium. Imperium is made up of a coalition of corporations that have been working together for the past few weeks inside the Syndicate and Outer Ring regions, including Vengeance of the Fallen, Rona-KIA, ClanKillers, Ascendance Industries, and Rome but to name a few. This new Imperium is [...]

        Veil of tension in Providence starts to lift

        • YC107-01-18

          Providence: a region which has been the stage for one of the most elusive band of pirates seems to be now returning to normal, as reports of attacks on vessels have decreased. Mercenary fighters have been swift to claim recognition for this turn of events. After hearing the warning issued by the Amarrian defence forces, alerting their citizens to the dangers in providence, they decided to take matters into their own hands. One mercenary was boasting that they "have driven the pilots from the region, [...]

          Molden Heath - Engagements

          • YC107-01-16

            Never has fighting in the Great Wildlands region ever surmounted to such a point it would ever spill into empire space. Last night, the resident faction in Great Wildlands 'The Keiretsu' sought to take the fight to claim the Great Wildlands region further than most would have ever expected by chasing and engaging resistance forces 'The Foundation' in the empire system of Egbinger. Molden Heath locals looked on in complete disbelief as the Great Wildlands resistance forces the Foundation fought a [...]

            Abolition party of Amarr rally goes ahead as scheduled despite setbacks

            • YC107-01-15

              During recent weeks, galactic recognition of the Abolition party of Amarr has gone from strength to strength. This Thursday saw their third rally in as many weeks, where they were trying to gather support for their cause, and send their messages to the hearts of the governments of whose systems they choose to rally in. And with each rally, more pilots of all races voice their support, most importantly perhaps the many Matari freedom fighter corporations who, although initially sceptical and [...]

              Arcane Technologies Industrial cup cancelled

              • YC107-01-09

                Arcane Technologies regretfully announced that they had to cancel their eagerly anticipated “Inter Alliance Industrial Cup” because of lack of interest. The Cup was scheduled for today. For all the hype and interest which this sparked, no teams decided to participate, leaving the organisers disappointed. However, that is nothing compared to the millions of extreme sports enthusiasts who were preparing for what they saw as the biggest sporting breakthrough since the mind clash and SplinterZ. However, [...]

                Curse Alliance membership drops drastically - Alliance leadership not concerned

                • YC107-01-09

                  In the days since the last article on the Curse Alliance, its member count went from roughly 2300 to around 700. Although it is impossible for us to confirm which corporations have definitively left the Curse Alliance, we received a list of those that have taken up Stain Empire’s offer from thebold. These corporations have presumably left the Curse Alliance, for various reasons. The list numbers around 30. Judging from the number of corporations that are still left, these corporations are Kill on [...]

                  Anti-slave rally with a twist

                  • YC107-01-08

                    Yulai, the centre for trade, diplomacy and travel, last Sunday played host to yet another chapter in the ensuing conflict of interests between the Amarrian slavers and the anti-slaver factions. Although the various systems have seen many rallies with the aim of freeing the slaves in mind, this one was slightly different. Instead of being organised and run by a Minmatar freedom fighter corporation or alliance, this one was initiated by an Amarrian citizen. Shira d'Radonis, a member of the Abolition [...]

                    Impressions of battle - the Yulai Slave Rally

                    • YC107-01-07

                      My ship came out of warp near Yulai 3 with a shudder while explosions flared around me. A battle was raging during what was supposed to be a peaceful protest against slavery. As I tried to make sense of what I saw, I caught the telltale streaks of ships entering warp. I had arrived just as one side of the conflict retreated, leaving the field of battle to a PIE fleet, golden Apocalypse and Armageddon battleships, along with smaller ships, surrounded by the forlorn shapes of abandoned drones, most [...]

                      Battles Continue in Syndicate

                      • YC107-01-07

                        Yet another major battle occured tonight in the VV-VCR system of the Syndicate region between the forces of JQA/3rd Front Alliance and a loose coalition of ex-Curse Alliance corporations. Despite a valiant effort on their part, and a great deal of determination, the JQA/3rd Front forces were overmatched. This is the latest in a series of battles that have occured over the last week within syndicate between these two groups. When asked before the battle about the fighting, Clipped Wings of the 3rd [...]

                        Shinra leaving Curse - dark times ahead for troubled alliance?

                        • YC107-01-06

                          Yesterday, at 00:00 eve time, Shinra announced their departure from the Curse Alliance. As Shinra is one of the first members of the Curse Alliance, some say one of the founding members, this comes as quite a surprise. Chowdown, one of the two Shinra leaders, explained Shinra leaving as follows: "Although we still have a lot of friends in the CA, and we are very proud of what we achieved as an alliance, our member base was growing tired of facing the unrelenting pressure of our enemies, Stain Empire, [...]

                          Stain Empire: Cease of Hostilities

                          • YC107-01-06

                            The following is an unedited press release from the Stain Empire. From: HQ Stain Empire Felix Legion TRANSMISSION Fellow Stain Citizens The path, that lies behind our great nation is long. After one and a half years of war, of fighting, killing and dying, it is full of tears and blood. The hostility between us and the Curse Alliance came out of aversion and mistrust from a small number of corporations. But during our war the respect for each others has grown. Both armies fought brave with ferocity and [...]

                            Ceremonial mourning turns to bloodbath as Navy forces intervene

                            • YC107-01-03

                              What was supposed to have been a peaceful event, where Caldari from all walks of life could remember the passing of Caldari Prime into Gallentean hands, turned into a bloodbath. After Jera, the CEO of the celebrated soft drinks manufacturer Drink Starsi™, host and main speaker of the event, arrived and welcomed the participants, Gallente Navy vessels warped to the scene and opened fire on Jera’s Industrial class vessel. While Yuki Li of Omerta Syndicate warned the Navy in local channels that further [...]
