*steps up to the podium and clears his throat

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am proud to present an ambitioned altruistic project to our fine community today.

The Black Rabbits Academy has been revived from its more than one year hybernation. The leader of our Alliance, Gilgamesh1980, had asked me if I wanted to become CEO of this corporation a few weeks ago and I was on one hand very proud, but on the other hand very scared. Not having been CEO of a corporation before and still not really a seasoned veteran when it comes to piracy, I was not sure if I would be able to handle that responsibility.

However, you only grow with the goals you put up for yourself, and therefore my goal was and is to make this project a successful one. If you can measure success in number of recruits joining, it is a huge success. Within 2 weeks our Academy had reached the number of students that I was aiming for - 50 people had signed up and still there were more coming. Pirate apprentices from all over New Eden flooded into the Academy base, eager to get their first kill and their first ransom.

Finally I have closed recruitment for students at a number of 60 and training of the Q1/09 class has started. I have to say that I am very proud of each and every student, they amaze me by their excellent comprehension and their passion for space piracy.

What is so special about this Academy, I hear you ask? Well, unlike many other 'Academies' in New Eden, this one is not a recruitment and selection center for our Alliance. Of course there is the option, to switch to one of the other TGA corporations after graduation, but it is not our explicit goal. Students who consider themselves sufficiently educated can go their own ways if they like, even joining one of the many rivaling pirate corporations, or opening their own.

We wanted to do something very similar to Eve University, which is doing a lot for new pilots, but limits its efforts to law abiding citizens. We are not earning any ISK on this project and our only reward is the gratefulness of our members and the fun we have together.

That being said, I thank you for your attention. Should anyone feel like making a contribution of any kind, please do not hesitate to contact me or one of my directors, Vosx and Apraxas.

I would also like to put my thanks out to the members of the academy and especially the pilots, who are offering guest lectures in the coming weeks already.

the academy received huge feedback, and has grown at a rate none of us expected, and are very happy with the progress the new members have already done, the killboards are also showing this YARRRR!!

of course, if any pirate would be interested to do lectures about piracy in every form and definition, I am certain, Lecter will be happy to hear from you


The Academy is sponsored by the Guristas associates, however works as it's own entity within

*Stands up with pride

I am an acadamy member for 15 days, and each and every day has been rewarding.
Every day, In-Game, on the forums, or in Vent, your talking and learning a lot. Then, when the acadamy gets a roam on,
your heart starts to pump with adrelinine, even more so when you get into a fight. This is no gimmick, no get rich quick scheme, and is not about pressure. The people who teach and explain are kind, considerate of your know-how, and above all, are extreemly patient. On one fight alone, our fleet ( 6 frigs ) we faced 5 tech II ships, and everone was calm, gave instructions clearly, and we came out the victors. The dedication of everyone involved in teachinmg us and supplying us with gear is beyond explanation.

Well, im on my 15th Day in the acadamy, i just celebrated that fact with my first solo kill ever in eve.

This is for real, this is the best time ive had ( and looking forward to having ) not just in eve, but in any game.

Yarr.

Certainly not. He is being modest.

Having flown with H Lecter as a director in TGA, there is nothing unskilled about him. His attention to detail and great people skills will continue to make him a credit to his alliance and students.

I wish them luck,

I am also an TBRA member and I honestly don't know anywhere else you can get this type of experience in the game. The Guristas Associates all together are a top notch alliance. This academy covers alot of aspects about pvp that you don't get anywhere else. The theory behind the playstyle of H Lecter and the instructors is like no other. Not only that I feel that I am a part of the whole alliance and not just a noob academy member. Much respect to H Lecter, Gilgamesh, and everybody else in the academy.

I approve of systems/academy's like this, whether they are Eve Uni, Agony Unleashed or BR Academy they all have a goal worth pursuing.

I especially approve of one run by these fellas, good reps.

actually no, recruitment has closed prior to this been posted.

thanks for the kind words everyone, well, to those who did have kind words YARRRR!!

Academy members are doing very well, and have been accepted within the TGA ranks and are equal in many ways to the other corps.


plus their kills are looking pretty sweet, so do their losses ;-)

Best of luck to you guys, always good to see more people take on the challenge and reward of helping players new to either the game itself, or a particular play style.

Thanks guys,

looks like Lecter's new corp made the news

A killboard project is currently on the way, but consider the greiwatch KB a 'defensive' measure to blind our targets Twisted Evil

On behalf of Eve University and its members, I would like to with the The Black Rabbits Academy the best of luck in their endeavors.

It is always good to see new teaching establishments being formed, and while it is regrettable to see some capsuleers turn to piracy and we certainly don't condone it, this is how life in New Eden is, and there is clearly a niche for an unaffiliated corporation to teach budding pirates what they need to know.

Best of luck, Mr Lecter!
