Uriam Kador calls for Investigation!

  • YC105-11-30

    As one of his first acts as the new Family Kador Heir, Uriam Kador calls for an investigation into the security failure that surrounded the Imperial Inauguration. He issued the following statement less than an hour after being informed of what had transpired at the inauguration. "Our Emperor was visciously attacked during this most sacred time. I call for the immediate resignation of those who where charged with providing for his security, and a purge of the military of all those traitors to the [...]

    Doriam Kor-Azor Inaugurated as other heirs commit Shathol'Syn - Ceremony disturbed

    • YC105-11-29

      At an undisclosed location today, Emperor Doriam Kor-Azor was inaugurated in what has been described as the most tense moment in modern Amarr history. Doriam's first duty was to order the other Amarr heirs to commit Shathol’Syn, or ritual suicide. When only Jamyl Sarum remained left to end her life, Sarum fleet warships interrupted the ceremony. Combat broke out in what was intended to be a highly secure venue as unknown assailants launched missiles at Doriam's ship. It seems, as the assailants were [...]

      Amarr Imperial fleet on alert as Inauguration draws closer - Miner executed

      • YC105-11-29

        Captains of the Amarr Imperial fleet have received notification that they are to be "alert and ready" today as security measures are stepped up all throughout Amarr space. Convoys of ceremonial ships have been seen travelling at the outer edges of Empire space today surrounded by large military fleets. In an unfortunate incident, a lone miner was detained and later executed for "suspicious curiosity” after contacting passing Imperial Fleet ships and asking, “where they were going with all those guns”.

        Imperial Inauguration set to start at 16:00 GMT, tomorrow Saturday Nov 29th

        • YC105-11-28

          The Imperial Inauguration Event will begin tomorrow Saturday Nov 29th at 16:00. Acceptance emails will be sent out at around 12:00 GMT tomorrow. There are already more than fifty applicants to the event, so some will have to keep track of events on an ingame chat channel. We hope that the event goes as planned and the heirs will do their duty to the Empire and wish Doriam Kor-Azor good luck.

          Call for a vote of no-confidence over prime minister Midular

          • YC105-11-27

            Disbelief, sorrow, anger. These three words don't do justice to the feelings of Minmatar freedom fighters who have been fighting and dying for the cause for years now. To them, the slave farms run by their own countrymen are even worse than Amarr slavery. A betrayal of this magnitude serves to eliminate all that they have worked for. "Prime minister Karan Midular no longer represents our people." said Makkar , veteran warrior of the Oracle tribe, earlier today during a rare interview. "We would have a [...]

            Tight security surrounds Emperor Inauguration as applications pile up for attendance

            • YC105-11-27

              A veil of secrecy shrouds preparations for the most talked about event in modern Amarr history. Next Saturday, Doriam Kor-Azor of House Kor-Azor will be inaugurated Emperor of Amarr, succeeding Heideran VII who recently passed away. The ceremony is expected to be fraught with tension, as the four Amarr heirs whose champions failed to secure them the throne, are expected to commit ritual suicide while Amarr's most sacred priests sanctify Doriam's god-like reign. Historically, most heirs have performed [...]

              Foiritan claims Senate out of touch with public

              • YC105-11-26

                In a surprising turnaround President Foiritan has gone from defense on to the offense in his struggle with the Senate. Only yesterday he had to fend off allegations that he was using taxpayer's money to fund his own hobby interests, but now the table has turned with him vehemently attacking the Senate, declaring it out of touch with reality and lacking connections with the public. The President's outburst came at a fund-raising gala last evening, where money for terminally ill children was being [...]

                President Foiritan defends research expenditure

                • YC105-11-25

                  Federation President Foiritan has come under increasing pressure in the last few weeks because of his extravagant expenditure on research. The Senate has frowned upon the independent research activities directed by the President ever since he came into office, stating that such activities did not befit the most powerful man in the Federation. Many Senators have even gone so far as to say that the research efforts are just a cover up for Foiritans obsessive expenditure on hi-tech gadgets. It is a [...]

                  Podkill tragedy boosts Crielere funding chances

                  • YC105-11-24

                    Sparring continued yesterday outside the Federation halls of power, the subject of contention still the infamous Crielere Project and the funds President Foiritan is hoping to secure that will facilitate it's conclusion. During a two hour mediacast the President, The Leader of the Senature and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court were all given free reign to debate the issue in front of a 'live' studio audience. Chaired by the popular right-wing media host Jarveshier Melanger it was no surprise that [...]

                    CONCORD Confirms Amarr Ceremony Disrupted By ‘Joint-Strike’ Military Operation

                    • YC105-11-24

                      AMARR – CONCORD authorities today confirmed that several military Special Forces units “from traditionally opposing factions” converged on the Theology Council Tribunal station during the Amarr Championship Award Ceremony and engaged in a fierce firefight that left all of the elite tactical units, dozens of station security personnel, and 7 high-ranking advisors and military officers loyal to Doriam Kor-Azor dead. No survivors were left at the scene, and the identities of the attackers are unknown. [...]

                      Amarr Champions receive awards in private ceremony

                      • YC105-11-22

                        Due to a serious malfunction in the stargates leading into the Amarr system, resulting in widespread loss of camera drones and sensors for pilots entering the system, the Amarr Championship Award ceremony will not be open to guests as intended. The Emperor's family has released a statement expressing their sorrow because of this and promised a full investigation into the reasons for this serious breakdown in traffic into their throne system. The Champions will receive their awards shortly and the [...]

                        More pressure for Prime Minister in wake of ‘Slave Farm’ discovery

                        • YC105-11-22

                          Incredible footage was released today of Minmatar Police vessels making a co-ordinated planetary swoop on what was thought to be one of the largest 'Slave Farms' in existence. Although only a few hundred malnourished captives were set free, according to the Police who have seized records left at the site, close to a million Minmatar slaves had been ‘processed’ there in the last two years - most, we must assume, destined for various plantations and factories within the Amarr Empire. But what has caused [...]

                          Amarr Championship Award Ceremony to take place tomorrow at 16:00 EVE time

                          • YC105-11-21

                            The Amarr Championship Award Ceremony will take place tomorrow ( Saturday ) at 16:00 EVE time ( GMT ). The location of the cerimony will soon be made public. Various Amarr dignitaries are expected to show up, along with representatives from the Imperial Fleet Assembly Plants whose engineers have been working day and night completing the prize ships. Champion Ecliptical and his wingmen are expected to receive handsome awards for their service to the Empire. More later.

                            President feuds with Senate over technology funding

                            • YC105-11-20

                              Hardly a week has passed by when the Gallentean government hasn't fallen out with itself over some internal issue or other and this past few days the populist President elect has again come under fire from the Gallente Senate, this time over the thorny issue of funding, and, as ever, it is the central legislative body the Supreme Court who are caught in the political crossfire. An ardent technology buff, President Foiritan has always approached research and technological issues with an almost [...]

                              Sarum forces patrolling Amarr prime

                              • YC105-11-20

                                AMARR: A strange sight meets those who fly through Amarr prime these days - police vessels. Actually, what makes them strange is that they all bear the markings of "Sarum surveilance". Nearly all police and military vessels met there belong to the Sarum navy. Even more alarming, this fact hasn't been publicly advertised in any way, so many Amarr citizens just assume that the ships belong to the Amarr navy, or perhaps the security forces of the old emperor. And why would they think otherwise? Not [...]

                                Tension on the rise... CONCORD warns of troubled times.

                                • YC105-11-18

                                  With the recent inter-Empire conflicts, reports of widespread banditry and raiding have come flooding in. While exact figures are not published by CONCORD, the total number of ship-kills is expected to increase for the sixth straight month. Sales figures from the major ship-building cartels have also been on the rise, indicating a healthy market for replacement ships. While the Empires of EVE have not broken out in open warfare, all indications point towards increasing political turmoil ahead. As [...]

                                  Gallente fury over Caldari inactivity

                                  • YC105-11-15

                                    Following the news that the Caldari State had declined to offer any kind of compensations or aid to the victims of the foul Protein Delicacies, Gallenteans everywhere have expressed their outrage and shock. For the last few years the relations between the two nations has been steadily improving, but all that has been carefully built up in that time is now under threat of being undone. The Federation Senate has been in uproar since the Caldari made their decision and many senators have been extremely [...]

                                    Powercore meltdown delays award ceremony - Engineer Injured

                                    • YC105-11-14

                                      Expert ship builders of the Imperial Fleet Assembly Plants are working day and night completing a batch of ships that were expected for delivery this weekend at the Amarr Championship Award Ceremony. Due to an unfortunate incident at the docks, delivery of the fleet was postponed. An experimental new power core of an Imperial class battleship overheated, torching dozens of slave shipbuilders to their death. One Amarrian engineer was somewhat injured, causing the Amarrian Imperial Succession Council [...]

                                      Caldari Chief Executive Panel decides not to compensate

                                      • YC105-11-13

                                        After careful scrutiny by the Chief Executive Panel into the Protein Delicacies crisis, it has decided not to follow through with any further actions. Offering a rare glimpse into the power setup of the panel, it has been revealed that the panel was roughly divided into three camps. In one camp, headed by the Sukuuvestaa Corporation, it was argued that the business practices employed in the manufacturing and marketing of Protein Delicacies were not untoward and in perfect harmony with what normally [...]

                                        The Federation makes a formal request for compensations

                                        • YC105-11-12

                                          The Gallente Federation has issued a request to the Caldari State demanding indemnities for the selling of contaminated food products within Federal space. After inspecting the claims for that past several days, the Senate Committee pushed for the request to be made. It is the conclusion of the committee that Sukuuvestaa Corporation, the manufacturer of the tainted Protein Delicacies, was aware of their product’s defective nature, but had willfully decided to sell it to the Federation nonetheless. The [...]

                                          Are Protein Delicacies responsible for student cognitive dysfunction?

                                          • YC105-11-11

                                            Recent studies have indicated that there is a clear link between the consumption of Protein Delicacies and decreasing IQ. The studies were conducted as part of the investigation being made into the dismal results of last seminar’s test scores, as well as the increase in juvenile delinquency within the Federal school system. It is most certain that the moral outcry following this new piece of information will have lasting effects on the already strained relationship between the Federation and the [...]

                                            Ishukone Decries Delicacies Scandal, Offers to Reimburse

                                            • YC105-11-10

                                              In a surprising move today, Ishukone Corporation issued a statement criticizing Sukuuvestaa’s involvement in the manufacture, shipping, and sale of the so-called "protein delicacy" line of products. The statement read, in part, “No good can come of the sort of predatory and mercenary scrambling after profits that this sort of behavior belies." This is the first time in recent memory one of the major Caldari corporations spoke out against the practices of a peer. Long known for their lobbying in favor [...]

                                                While Sukuuvesta Corporation has been in the spotlight these last few days because of the Protein Delicacies scandal, it has until now kept quiet about the whole thing. Yesterday they spoke for the first time about the matter. That Protein Delicacies are made from garbage was not mentioned at all. Instead, a scathing attack was made on the Quafe company for their unethical industrial espionage. An agent working for Quafe managed to breach the security of the Sukuuvestaa Corporation and infiltrate one [...]

Originally designed as a method to enforce compliance in Minmatar slaves, these viral control agents kill their victims unless a constant supply of the antidote drug Vitoc is administered. Minmatar and neutral organizations are receiving reports of freed slaves dying in transit or while waiting for transfer to ships that would carry them to [...]

                                                    Speculation is running high that Jamyl Sarum, head of the militant Sarum house, will not commit ritual suicide at the time of the Succession ritual of Doriam Kor-Azor. It is thought that Jamyl may follow in the footsteps of Khanid II and break away from the Amarr Empire, effectively seceding and forming an independent state comprised of current Sarum holdings. If this were to happen, many analysts consider it a precursor to a Sarum family war against the Minmatar Republic, elements of the extant Amarr [...]

The inquiry will look into how Sukuuvestaa Corporation managed to conceal this fact, especially from the health organizations responsible for approving the product as suitable for human consumption. It is widely believed that at the bottom of this matter lies an even bigger scandal [...]

The Panel will decide whether there is a cause for any further actions to be taken in the matter. The Federation has already sent stern protests to Caldari authorities through diplomatic channels within CONCORD, and spokesman for the Federation said he hoped this investigation by the [...]

An agent hired by Quafe managed to infiltrate one of the heavily guarded Sukuuvestaa factories manufacturing the popular product and there discovered this ugly truth. This stunning revelation casts a new light on why Sukuuvestaa managed to produce the Delicacies so very cheaply. Ordinary organic waste is processed [...]

This delicious, yet nutritious and healthy food has especially made great headways within the Gallente Federation, where it has been hailed as the best thing since self-inflated bread. But rumors the product is not all as it seems have been persistent ever since it first appeared on the market.

"I call upon Doriam Kor-Azor to put a stop to the Amarr raids upon our outlying systems.
