CONCORD Stuns Empires Again With Discovery of Uncharted Deep Space Jumpgate System

  • YC106-02-09

    YULAI – Just one day after the release of information revealing the existence of dozens of abandoned stations in the outer regions, CONCORD stunned government leaders and civilians again with the announced discovery of an uncharted network of jumpgates surrounding Empire space. The origin of the gates is linked to the mysterious Immensea organization, but not yet fully understood. The network was designed to enable a ship to reach almost any unregulated system without ever crossing Empire borders. The [...]

    Crielere scientists kidnapped -- notorious terrorist leader killed

    • YC106-02-09

      This just in from the Crielere system: After a night of fierce fighting, the infamous marauder Jirai “Fatal” Laitanen is reported to have been killed in a battle against the Crielere station’s loose coalition of defense forces. According to sources, Laitanen’s cohort, Korako “The Rabbit” Kosakami, managed to escape from the scene after kidnapping Crielere founders Henric Touvolle and Taromi Umailen. Earlier reports that the main Gurista force was heading out of Crielere’s neighbouring system Rancer [...]

      Jirai “Fatal” Laitanen spotted in Aeman - Guristas retreating from Miroitem?

      • YC106-02-08

        Breaking news from the Aeman constellation: Over the last hour, reports have been filtering in that the Guristas attack force stationed in Rancer has begun relocating to Miroitem, an adjacent system. Additionally, rumors of notorious Gurista leader Jirai “Fatal” Laitanen’s presence in the Thelan system have caused widespread unease among the system’s inhabitants. As of yet none of the sightings have been confirmed, but Thelan’s Local Bureau of Transportation has reported a slightly less than twofold [...]

        CONCORD Announces Discovery of Abandoned Bases – Treason Charges Dropped Against DED Internal Security Chief

        • YC106-02-08

          YULAI – After a week of silence since the arrest of Commander Tantoseisen Kakkichi for his unauthorized expedition into unregulated space, CONCORD released a public statement announcing the discovery of dozens of uncharted, abandoned stations in deep space. According to their statement, the Commander played an “instrumental” role in the discovery of these hidden outposts, though the exact details surrounding his initial decision to bypass the DED chain of command about their discovery remains unclear.

          Academic Community Divided On Crielere - Idealists publicize formerly secret innovations

          • YC106-02-06

            As research scientists at the half-abandoned Crielere facility brace for another assault by Guristas pirates, academics throughout the universe of EVE are divided in whether they support the somewhat stubborn idealism of Crielere founders Henric Touvolle and Taromi Umailen of refusing to bow to politics and free market pressure. In recent days, a trend has risen amongst engineers working for various corporations and races, to publicize formerly confidential blueprints, and have placed them on the open [...]

            Guristas pirates retreat completely from Crielere after latest assault is thwarted

            • YC106-02-05

              After a temporary lull in fighting, Guristas pirates launched a new wave of attacks on the Crielere compound today. The research lab is being defended by a brave multinational force summoned by the scientists holding out in the compound. Swarms of missiles could be seen closing in on defenders as the final pirate ships retreated from the war zone. The defensive force seems to have driven the Guristas into the neighboring system of Rancer. Considerable pirate forces have also been spotted in the [...]

              The Defenders of Crielere

              • YC106-02-05

                To the Government agencies involved, Crielere was simply a business venture gone bad, without use, a failure. And so, their answer was simply logical: Why waste ships and men on a situation with no bottom line? Yet, the citizens of EVE did not seem to find that reasoning acceptable. And so they took it upon themselves to defend something that does not have a price tag attached. Their ideals. They chose to come and expend their resources in the defense of a few men, who determined that they would not [...]

                “The Great Defense of Crielere” - Guristas Raid on Crielere Foiled

                • YC106-02-04

                  A multiracial force of hundreds of pilots intercepted Guristas warships bent on storming the Crielere research labs and successfully drove them out of the Crielere system. Crielere co-founder Henric Touvolle applauded the efforts of this brave group, whose losses were considerable. Escape pods could be seen glittering amidst the debris and ravaged hulls of frigates, cruisers and battleships. Scavengers collected weapons and modules lost by the merciless Guristas as their forces slowly dissolved. This [...]

                  Guristas pirate ships spotted circling Crielere station

                  • YC106-02-04

                    Following the retreat of Caldari and Gallente forces from the Crielere system, security in the system is at an all time low. A distress call was received from the skeleton crew still at the station, claiming that Guristas pirate ships were circling the compound. The scientists at Crielere fear that pirate forces may choose to storm the facilities, as they are left defenseless in the eye of the political storm that has spun from the research lab. Neither Caldari nor Gallente military officials agreed [...]

                    State and Federation abandon Crielere

                    • YC106-02-03

                      The Caldari State and the Gallente Federation have finally officially decided to abandon the Crielere research facilities, something that has been expected for quite some time. Most of the staff has already left and security personnel and police ships will leave the system in the very near future. The rift caused by the theft of valuable blueprints by high ranking Caldari officials has grown so deep and severe that it was quite obvious that the two great nations could not continue their cooperation in [...]

                      Leaked DED Intelligence Memo Hints at Second Generation Combat Vessels

                      • YC106-02-01

                        News agencies have been sent copies of a CONCORD Directive Enforcement Division intelligence memo by an anonymous source. The document details "hull-type nomenclature for recent emergent technology vessels." It appears to be a DED-internal communication regarding apparent code-words DED has implemented to refer to a class of new "light-strike combat craft" apparently in development by various and diverse firms. The memo details four "hull-type designates" broken down by corporation of origin, with [...]

                        Inauguration Assassination Plot Thwarted – Sarum Empire Decapitated as Kor-Azor Ascends to Power

                        • YC106-01-31

                          1B-31U – After weeks of anxious speculation about her true intentions since the outcome of the Succession Trials which ultimately decided her fate, Jamyl Sarum shocked the galaxy by committing ritual suicide (“Shathol’Syn”) without naming an heir to her own family during the Amarr Inaugural Ceremony, thus leaving her colossal military power and territories unclaimed. The consensus among political analysts is that the transition from Heideran VII to the rule of Emperor Doriam Kor-Azor is having a [...]

                          • YC106-01-31

                            An SCC ruling on disputed patent claims for hull modification technology opens the door for the licensing and manufacture of devices based on the controversial research. Boundless Creations, one of the companies involved in the settlement, wasted no time today in releasing a schematic for the production of a device utilizing the research breakthroughs. Due to SCC regulations regarding arbitration of patent claims disputes, the identities of the other corporations or individuals involved in the [...]

                            Crielere Labs--The End of the Experiment?

                            • YC106-01-31

                              Amidst mass defections and ever-increasing reports of stolen schematics, missing research databases, and the widespread pirating of collated findings, Crielere Labs is slowly going dark. Defiant in the echoing halls of the joint institution, officially known as the Caldari-Gallente Research Facility, project founders Henric Touvolle and Taromi Umailen today held a brief press conference denouncing the “lack of vision responsible for jeopardizing humanity’s greatest hopes.” The fate of the facility [...]

                              • YC106-01-28

                                NEW CALDARI – Incarcerated DED Internal Security Chief Tantoseisen Kakkichi and his legal representative Dantennen Fisk have been issued gag orders, prohibiting them from speaking with members of the press or anyone else outside of CONCORD. The order came as a result of an Inner Circle mandate, and is exclusively reserved for cases that could expose classified information or pose a security risk, internally or otherwise. The security lockdown was issued amidst reports of suspicious CONCORD fleet [...]

                                Pioneers of Crielere program call for harmony

                                  The two leading scientists in the Crielere program, the Gallentean Henric Touvolle and the Caldari Taromi Umailen, have publicly called for unity amongst their fellow scientists following the stunning revelations that top Caldari officials have systematically been stealing blueprints from the Crielere facilities. Many of the most prominent scientists in the program have since left their posts and gone to work for independent research firms elsewhere. Now Touvolle and Umailen, which pioneered the [...]

                                  Rogue CONCORD Commander Turns Himself In, Declares Actions Were Justified

                                  • YC106-01-23

                                    YULAI – The maverick DED commander who took his fleet into unregulated space turned himself in today at an undisclosed location without incident. The commander’s name is Tantoseisen Kakkichi, the head of Internal Security at the DED. Sources close to CONCORD believe all ships reported missing were accounted for, and that all of the officers-- including Kakkichi--were arrested on arrival. Some of the returning ships were reported as displaying extensive battle damage. Within 30 minutes of the arrests, [...]

                                      Crisis at Crielere as feud erupts

                                      • YC106-01-22

                                        Finally, after weeks of rumors and speculations, the truth over the disappearance of several valuable blueprints from the Crielere station has been revealed. As expected, some very high-ranking individuals are involved and the whole matter seems poised to topple the Crielere research program. At the heart of the plot to steal original blueprints and prototype items stands the CEO of Ishukone, Otro Gariushi himself. It seems that the Caldari were becoming annoyed by what they considered lack of [...]

                                        CONCORD Task Force Sighted Leaving Empire Borders

                                        • YC106-01-21

                                          AEDITIDE – An armada of CONCORD police ships, comprised of at least 6 battleships with 8 cruiser escorts, was sighted approaching the Egbinger gate in the Aeditide system and then jumping into unregulated space. The circumstances surrounding this highly unusual, unannounced expedition beyond Empire borders are unknown, as CONCORD representatives have refused to comment on the development. There are strong indications that the maneuver was not planned or authorized by CONCORD Fleet Command, as sources [...]

                                          Crielere: Investigation points to top

                                          • YC106-01-16

                                            Preliminary findings in the independent investigation on the blueprint theft from the Crielere research facility, recently initiated by Gallente President Foiritan, strongly indicate that personnel at the very top may be involved. While no names have been mentioned, it is believed that the theft was no outside job or petty theft by a disgruntled employee, as some have suggested, but rather an elaborate and deliberate act intended to personally enrich some of the leaders of the research project. The [...]

                                            Theology Council concludes inquiry into heir ‘incident’ – Articio cleared

                                              The Amarr Theology Council made an inquiry into the ‘incident’ involving the royal heir Articio Kor-Azor at the request of the church authorities where the ‘incident’ took place. The Council has now concluded the inquiry and reported its findings. Surprisingly little is said in the report and it seems the Council was unable to delve deep into the secrecy shrouding the infamous ‘incident’. Various witnesses seem to have disappeared into thin air or are suffering from a sudden stroke of amnesia, but are [...]

                                                In independent statements, Minmatar leaders spoke out against Republic citizens working with Amarr "criminal elements" in the Great Wildlands and Curse regions. Most outspoken was Egar Aldinold, CEO of Thukker Mix, who condemned "cowardly and piratical bands of Minmatar masquerading as freedom fighters while reaping the benefits of traitorous and shameful collusion." Though released independently, the statements reference each other and were intentionally timed to appear on the same day. Every tribe [...]

                                                  President Foiritan of the Gallente Federation recently made an unexpected visit to the Crielere research labs. Touring the facility the President learnt of the recent theft of blueprints and prototype equipment and was absolutely livid at the news. Foiritan was far from happy with how the Crielere command responded to the theft and felt is smacked of a cover-up. He demanded that an independent investigation team be formed and given complete access to the labs, brushing aside the feeble protests of the [...]

                                                    Uriam Kador, head of the respected Kador royal family, has officially denounced his fellow heir Articio Kor-Azor and accused him of bringing dishonor to the Amarr Empire with his 'idiotic behavior', referring to the infamous 'incident' that Articio was involved in a few days ago. Uriam even went so far as to suggest that Articio was not fit to be an heir. Although it is common for rival heirs to vie for political control behind the scenes it is very unusual for an heir to make such a venomous public [...]

Osa, who was furious of the fact that the Crielere Command seemed about to sweep the whole thing under the carpet, has no doubts about who is responsible for the theft. "Some Gallente did it. Of course they did! Unlike us, they don't monitor their scientists nearly enough. Every member of our research team is [...]

                                                        After it was revealed that Crielere was missing important blueprints, rumors about their whereabouts have been spreading like wildfire. Who could have taken them? Who has them? Speculation that they might have been stolen by a low ranking researcher, only to be sold to a discreet agent of one of the big corporations, has been voiced - in particular by those who have been running the errands of said agents. In particular, this news should be interesting to the smaller corporations, who have little or [...]

In the statement the commanders confirm that the lost blueprints were stolen, but will reveal no further details while an internal investigation is taking place. The commanders also acknowledged that the blueprints lost were unique and of considerable value, though they insisted their loss would not impinge on the research efforts being [...]

The news that many irreplaceable religious artifacts were lost and untold damage done to the sacred ground has enraged those strong of faith and Ardishapur especially bemoans the loss of the holy artifacts, of which he is an avid collector. Ardishapur has demanded a full report of the 'incident' to be given to the Theology Council as [...]

A random check of the stock revealed this. This news has been leaked out through junior personnel within the facility, to the disapproval of the facility's commanders, it is believed. As of yet it is not known whether the items were stolen or if this is a storage or [...]
