          SCC Announces Date For Commencement of Jovian Part Trade

          • YC106-05-21

            SCC spokesmen today released a statement explaining that the moratorium placed on the upcoming Jovian body part trade has been extended until Wednesday of next week. According to the statement, issued on behalf of Commission CFO Rayla Netho, the setting of the new date is due to the “logistical problems inherent in an undertaking of this size. There is no precedent for this kind of market venture, and extreme caution needs to be exercised in order to protect economic stability.” The statement also [...]

            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 [...]

                • 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 [...]

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 [...]

                        • 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 [...]

                          • 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 [...]

                              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 [...]

                              • 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 [...]

                                  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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

                                          The Jovian Directorate today issued a press release to all major news agencies throughout the universe.

                                          Sentry gun software updated

                                          • 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 [...]

                                            • 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 [...]
