Friends, I have spent the past two months putting my affairs back in order after an unfortunate trip to the afterlife. I have been richly blessed in that short time, having reassembled my fleet of ships, rebuilt a modest fortune from a meager 43 million ISK to several billion, and been appointed to serve as chief executive officer of Venture Racing, a family as dear to me as my own flesh and blood. Now that things are relatively squared away and operating smoothly, I have time to pause and celebrate the new lease on life that the universe has granted. As it happens, my 25th birthday is only two weeks away, so this seems as fitting a date as any to invite a few of my fellow capsuleers to share my joy.

I shall be opening up the Venture Racing flagship, Victory, to a limited number of guests on Monday, July 18, for 24 hours of merriment. While I shall be paying tribute to the day that I took my first breath and, coincidentally, the day I received my pilot's license three years ago, I welcome my guests to raise a glass to anything they feel like celebrating--faith, family, fortune, friends, or anything else that lifts their spirits. The ship will be underway in the Luminaire system for the entire day, in geostationary orbit around my home planet, Gallente Prime. InterBus shuttles will ferry guests to and from the ship throughout the day.

I am in the process of preparing the guest list, so please feel free to drop your name in the hat here, so to speak, and I shall do my best to accommodate as many revelers as possible.

I'd be happy to attend.

Happy birthday!

A celebratory party you say?

Despite a few 'issues' with my prescence in tat system, (I'm not looking at you at all CONCORD...), I think I do indeed wish to attend... Do you have a particular dress-code in mind?

Ah, the dress code. I hadn't given it much thought, really. Casual attire will be fine.

sounds like it could be fun, would I be able to request an invite for myself and my fiancee?

I shall be sure to include everyone who has responded thus far.

Nikita, please let me know the name of your guest.

I'd love to drop in and do some party-hearty. Sign me up if you're of the mind to do so. Thanks!

On behalf of David Estarra and myself, we'd be happy to attend and join you in celebration!

I will unfortunately not be able to attend without potentially undermining your celebration by being present (as a member of a militia at war with the Federation, which maintains sovereignty in that system).

So, I will instead extend to you a happy birthday and earnest wishes that your celebration goes well and all who attend have a pleasant experience.

Mr. Valadeus, I have received some similar concerns from others, so I should assure any interested parties that the InterBus can transport anyone safely to the venue without incident. If you choose to reconsider, I would certainly welcome you and Mrs. Valadeus.

Norrin, if you still have the space, I would like to attend for at least some time, though I will not be able to attend the entire day.

Dear friend, I doubt even I will be present for the entire 24 hours. Of course, the Venture Racing family will all be receiving invitations.

Friends, I am pleased to announce that I have just laid the keel for the Celebration. This Navy-issue Megathron will be identical to the Victory in almost every detail*. The replica will boast the same interior conversion to a luxury vessel, with all the heavy armor one would expect from this class of warship. This sister to the Venture Racing flagship will be a gift to one of my guests at the upcoming celebration.

I have not yet decided how best to select a recipient. Perhaps I shall hold a game of random chance, a contest of skill, or simply choose one lucky person on a whim. The ship will be given away at 23:00 EVE to one of the guests in attendance aboard the Victory.

The guest list is not finalized yet, and I will be inviting a maximum of fifty people. Those who are on the guest list can expect a personal invitation some time this week. Once again, feel free to request an invitation by posting here.

*While the same imaging equipment used in the prototype racing museum aboard the Victory will be installed on the Celebration, the proprietary programming will be excluded. I encourage the new owner to find a creative use for this equipment. Also, instead of an official team store, the Celebration will have a compartment containing the most complete collection of Venture Racing merchandise available.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been canceled. I will, however, give away the Navy Megathron constructed for the occasion to one of the individuals on the guest list.

A notice has been sent to all invited guests.

Gratz, Graelyn!

It was very kind of you to make that possible, Mr. Ellis.
