Black Market Trading in Misu Baniya On The Rise.

  • YC106-05-21

    Black market trading in the remains of the Jovian ambassador Misu Baniya has reached record highs with prices going as far up as 4 million ISK per genuine part. The air of mystery that surrounds the Jove is to blame for this black market trading, say Concord officials. "Many people see the Joves as, somehow, superhuman. Divine, demonic, or highly advanced beings which will solve all our problems. As such, many seek to get in the good graces of the Jove, and are buying up as many of these organic parts [...]

    SCC delays Jovian body part trade

    • YC106-05-19

      According to spokesmen from the Secure Commerce Commission, an emergency moratorium has been placed on the four empires’ upcoming initiative to buy back Misu Baniya’s body parts on the market. The moratorium, SCC officials say, is due to the “massive effect these transactions will have on the galactic economy. We are talking about a multi-billion ISK influx here, and these prices will need to be regulated and monitored carefully if we are not to fall head-first into an inflation the likes of which [...]

      Amarr Make Legal Push For Prize Battleship

      • YC106-05-18

        As reported in today’s Federation Tribune , a delegation from the Amarr Imperial Chancellor’s office arrived in Algogille yesterday to meet with officials from the Federal Administration, apparently in hopes of discussing the legal applicability of the will registering an Amarrian battleship to late reel star Gloria Monterneux’s estate. The ship, an Imperial-issue Apocalypse, one of the most dangerous war vessels currently in existence, was subsequently inherited by Ms. Monterneux’ sister, Martina [...]

        Empires to enter a bidding war for Jovian body parts

        • YC106-05-17

          With confirmation from the Jovian government that they will indeed try to collect as many parts of the unfortunate liaison Misu Banyia in order to revive him, the four empires are poised to enter a bidding war over who can collect the most parts. Starting tomorrow, the empires will start buying back selective body parts on the market. Due to the massive logistics involved they will only buy in bulk, meaning they will only do business for one thousand units or more at a time. As gruesome as this [...]

          Imperial Space-Lanes Plagued by Rise in Piracy

          • YC106-05-17

            In recent days, Concord conflict-nets have logged a sharp increase of disturbing distress calls in the depths of what has until recently been viewed as the most highly secured sectors of Eve. Merchant vessels and corporate military patrols alike are heard pleading briefly for all assistance before being cut short by the telltale static of electronic jamming – these unfortunate vessels are usually never found or heard from again. The attention of corporate defence forces, usually focused squarely on [...]

            Veniel Incident Sparks Naval Budget Debate

            • YC106-05-14

              The Caldari State Chief Executive Panel has been in renewed and heated debate over the naval budget. The Kaalakiota and Lai Dai corporations have proposed an emergency increase in the budget in the aftermath of the Veniel incident. Ishukone and Hyasyoda corporations have voiced their opposition while the remaining corporations have yet to make their stances known. Haatakan Oiritsuu, CEO of Kaalakiota, formulated this new proposal, saying, "The unfortunate incident in New Caldari only illustrates what [...]

              Troubled Times For Fledgling Republic

              • YC106-05-12

                Sebiestor tribal head Karin Midular at a press conference yesterday expressed disapproval on the Republic’s behalf towards the People’s Republic of Minmatar, an alliance of paramilitary groups which last Wednesday officially seceded from the Republic, proclaiming independence under a new constitution and claiming the constellation of Tartatven in the Molden Heath region as their sovereign territory. Claiming “disappointment at the impertinence displayed by our brethren,” Midular then went on to state [...]

                Empires To Help Collect Jovian Body Parts?

                • YC106-05-10

                  Since last week’s fateful accident involving Jovian Extra-Racial Liaison Misu Banyia, the four empires have each sent messages expressing their condolences to the Jove Empire. Additionally, Chief Executive Panel spokesman Kuuvar Mesarnur yesterday released a statement wherein the Caldari State expresses regret at the killing of unofficial Jovian spokesman Veniel in New Caldari last Friday -- an incident attributable to the tremendous population in the system at the time, which caused decreased [...]

                  Doriam decides to move Tal-Romon cathedral to Amarr Prime

                  • YC106-05-10

                    Amarr Emperor Doriam II has stunned his people by declaring that the notorious Tal-Romon Cathedral on Eclipticum will be dismantled piece by piece and moved to Amarr Prime, there to be reconstructed on a holy ground on the Amarr continent itself. While the shock of Doriam’s decision to seize the cathedral from its rightful owner, the heir Catiz Tash-Murkon, is still reverberating through the upper echelons of Amarr society these latest news are bound to stir things up even further. Experts on Amarrian [...]

                    Cardinal Omir Sarikusa Declares New Blood-quest

                    • YC106-05-07

                      A chilling holoreel of Omir Sarikusa, self-declared Blood Cardinal and leader of the Sani Sabik sect, more commonly known as the Blood Raider Covenant, was discovered yesterday during a DED attack on an undisclosed Blood Raider facility. Much of the holoreel depicts the gruesome blood rituals of the sect and has been deemed too explicit to publish, except for one segment in which the blood-drenched Sarikusa charges his followers with a new command: "Go forth, my children, and bring to me the blood of [...]

                      Jovian Issues Statement of Condemnation

                      • YC106-05-07

                        Tunai Moran, the Jovian representative in CONCORD's Inner Circle, today issued a statement condemning the killing of the Jovian spokesman Veniel in New Caldari in the aftermath of Misu Baniya's unfortunate accident. Aside from condemning the individuals involved, the statement also expressed "grave disappointment with the Caldari State's security measures." The Chief Executive Panel of the Caldari State could not be reached for comment.

                        Doriam II makes unprecedented intervention in cathedral debate

                        • YC106-05-07

                          The Amarr Emperor Doriam II has made an unprecedented move by intervening in the debate raging between royal heirs. Doriam II has declared that the Tal-Romon Cathedral, which Catiz Tash-Murkon purchased recently and has since been the center of a fierce debate between her and fellow heirs Uriam Kador and Yonis Ardishapur, is now the property of the emperor himself. Doriam will thus dictate in what manner any future renovations of the site will be. Tradition dictates that the emperor intervenes only in [...]

                          UDI operative extradited to Amarr

                          • YC106-05-07

                            This just in: according to confirmed eyewitness sightings, alleged UDI terrorist Goran Mitelek was late last night escorted from Federation Navy HQ in Algogille to an undisclosed location in Amarr space. The extradition comes hard on the heels of two weeks' worth of tooth-and-nail debates within Gallente government, where Federation President Foiritan has, with unflagging consistency, made his wishes to hang on to the prisoner abundantly clear. Representatives from the Office of the President were not [...]

                              This just in: representatives of the Jove Directorate have been in contact with heads of state over the past hour, explaining what has become of their delegate, Misu Banya, who was to have arrived at New Caldari at 12:00 EVT today. Two of the four largest empires, Caldari and Amarr, have already issued press releases concerning the affair. Baniya, Extra-Racial Liaison for the Jove Directorate, was set to meet with several major heads of state and factional representatives over the course of only an [...]

                              • YC106-05-05

                                The Jovian Directorate today issued a press release to all major news agencies throughout the universe. The release states that Misu Baniya, Extra-Racial Liaison for the Jove Directorate, will tomorrow, over the course of only one hour, make diplomatic visits to President Foiritan of the Gallente Federation, Amarr Emperor Kor-Azor, PM Midular of the Minmatar Republic, and the headquarters of the Caldari State’s Chief Executive Panel, as well as “other factional leaders, heretofore unrecognized by the [...]

                                • YC106-05-05

                                  Concord announced earlier today that repairs and updates have been completed to sentry gun software and barring unforeseen issues, all sentries should now function as intended. In 0.6 space and above, sentries will monitor a range no less than 150 km from the object being guarded. However, Concord has boosted key sentries to have a much greater range. No details regarding maximum sentry range in secure space are to be made available to prevent outlaws from carrying out raids in secure space. In 0.5 [...]

                                  Amarr Emperor takes notice of cathedral debate

                                  • YC106-05-01

                                    The debate surrounding Catiz's Tash-Murkon purchase of the Tal-Romon Cathedral has escalated to such a point that the Amarr Emperor Doriam has become aware of it. The debate ranges in religious to political in nature, essentially revolving on one hand around whether tourists should be allowed within the hallow grounds of the cathedral as a way of paying for its renovation; all the way to whether Catiz Tash-Murkon herself is a true royal heir on the other. Imperial pilots have been very vocal on the [...]

                                    Head of Parliament: Covered Khumaaks a mainstay

                                    • YC106-04-30

                                      Head of Minmatar Republic Parliament Malaetu Shakor in an interview last night stated that the Khumaak, an ornamental weapon worn at diplomatic gatherings by Matari dignitaries and fleet officers but restricted from view at certain functions due to recently-passed legislation, had gone from being fairly commonplace to being almost mandatory. Shakor, interviewed by the Defiant Descendants’ Society, an organization of Minmatars afflicted by an eye disease causing blindness early in life (a condition [...]

                                        Many feel that the laws of the market rule our universe. Billions of isk exchange hands every day, and certainly not all of it is seen in the empire-sanctioned marketplaces. Grey areas exist between empires, in lawless space, and increasingly in a black market that runs both on escrow bonds and in the space station hangars of pilots. In the world of isk, reputation is everything. Unfortunately, space is so big, and the traders so many that it is neigh impossible to keep track of seedy businessmen and [...]

                                        Kador ups the ante in cathedral debate – Amarr pilot community says no to tourists

                                        • YC106-04-28

                                          Uriam Kador, head of the Kador family, has intensified the ongoing debate surrounding Catiz Tash-Murkon's acquisition of the Tal-Romon Cathedral on Eclipticum by questioning the heir status of the Tash-Murkon family. The Tash-Murkons replaced the Khanid family when the latter broke from the Empire following Heideran's election as emperor. The nomination came as a surprise to most, not the least because the Tash-Murkons were Udorians, and thus not of pure Amarrian ancestry. Heideran ruffled a few [...]

                                          Catiz Tash-Murkon sparks controversy over cathedral renovation plan

                                          • YC106-04-26

                                            Harsh words have been exchanged between the Kador family and the Tash-Murkon family regarding the latter’s plans to turn a religious site into a tourist attraction. Catiz Tash-Murkon recently bought the now infamous cathedral on Eclipticum, the site of the sordid incident involving Articio Kor-Azor. The cathedral has been closed since the incident and in need of repairs and renovations. None has been willing to take up this burden until Catiz stepped in. Catiz plans to fund the extensive repairs [...]

                                              Kador Region - The Amarr Civic Court today requested that Ni-Kunni Goran Mitelek, the UDI operative captured by Gallente police forces in a skirmish in Sinq Laison last week, be extradited to the Amarr government. Mitelek, an electronic warfare specialist and reputed former Angel Cartel member, is reportedly wanted for a long list of crimes against the Empire, among them the supplying of arms and explosives to "anti-government revolutionaries" and participation in "numerous operations detrimental to [...]

                                              • YC106-04-20

                                                High-ranking CONCORD officials have accused several prominent Caldari weapon manufacturers of promoting war and violence in many parts of the world. The Caldari armament industry has in recent years increasingly turned its eyes outside the State to do business, as the domestic market dwindles. Though most of these exports go to legitimate sources it is estimated that as much as 20% ends up in the hands of the less scrupulous social elements. CONCORD has many times in the past issued stern warnings to [...]

                                                  The Caldari State has revealed that the budget for the Caldari Navy will be slashed for the 10th consecutive year. A high-ranking official was quoted as saying: “The war with the Federation is long since over and in our estimate there is no imminent threat on the horizon. Besides, our annual spending for CONCORD forces has been on the rise, which counterbalances the cuts for the Navy. We are confident that despite these cuts our Navy will still be more than capable of performing its duty 100%.” The [...]

                                                    Gallentean Senator Cedriq Tyrion made a fool of himself yesterday, as well as making a mockery of the Federal Senate, when he held a speech supposed to be on this years budget while being implanted with a mind-altering Transcranial Microcontroller. The Senator might have gotten away with this severe breach of etiquette if it wasn't for the fact that he was under the illusion that he was a young girl dancing barefoot through the meadows on his home planet. Naturally, this affected his speech somewhat. [...]

                                                      In the wake of rising prices for the Transcranial Microcontrollers due to increased demand from the Gallente Federation, the Dark Amarrians have decided to rift the deal they made with the Ishukone Corporation, the manufacturers of the chips. A spokesman from the Khanid Kingdom explained that the price of the chips was now so high that it counteracted the benefits the chips provided in economical terms. The kingdom thus saw no reason to continue buying them. The spokesman said that those chips already [...]

Calling for heightened awareness of current issues, the President extolled the virtues of free speech and individual liberty while denouncing acts of terror by those who seek to destroy those very virtues. “Our hard-fought freedoms can not, and will not, be stamped out by the iron boot of tyranny. Whatever the cost, this we must fight for,” said the President. He then went on to [...]

The chips, manufactured by the Caldari Ishukone Corporation, have until now mainly been in demand in the Khanid Kingdom, where they are used to pacify slaves. But the chips can be programmed in various ways, as the idle rich within the Federation have found out. The chips have become a huge fad amongst the social elite [...]

Officials from the Khanid Kingdom explained how the chips were being employed and technicians from the Ishukone Corporation explained the science behind them. After a long and heated debate the conclusion was not to do anything for the time being. The Federal and Republic representatives denounced the chip use as [...]

This, in itself, is not news – as one of the more prolific production houses in the Federation, Roebuck releases over two hundred holoreels a year.

Advocates for implanting slaves with the revolutionary chip have emphasized that the slaves become happier and more productive as a result of being implanted. While critics of this procedure have not been able to thwart this argument they still claim that the implanting is inhumane and barbaric. But what [...]

Many humanitarian organizations have claimed the microchips will be used on slaves to suppress their thoughts and will, effectively 'de-humanizing' them.
