Pirates gathering strength in outer regions

New Eden News | YC105-08-05

Large gangs of bandits are now much more frequent and they have found stargates to be an especially good hunting ground. CONCORD would like to advice space farers to take great care when traveling outside empire jurisdiction and considers such travels only safe when in numbers and heavily armed.
