Dear Eve Community

It is with immense pride the Interstellar Starbase Syndicate announce the opening of the first player owned outpost with unrestricted access to all pilots in Eve.

We have chosen a Gallente Administrative Outpost which, to our knowledge, is the first outpost of this type in Eve, for itís market and office facilities to promote commerce.

We have deliberately built it in unclaimed space, near the highways leading to and from empire space and close to the great southern alliances. It is designed to be a trade hub, and we hope that in time, it will become the new Yulai of the southern 0.0 regions.

Great profits can be made here, trading ships and modules from empire, selling rare ore and Starbase products from the inaccessible moons and asteroid fields in deep space for traders to bring back to empire.

To encourage trade, our goal is for the Marginis system (KDF-GY) to be a neutral zone where we ask all pilots to refrain from discharging weapons. ISS Navy enforce the neutrality of the system.

ISS Marginis Outpost Visitors
Everyone can visit the outpost, but the primary target group of visitors to Marginis are expected to be the neighbouring alliances and empire traders with the stomach to run 0.0 trade routes.
The secondary target-group is POS operators and NPC hunters in the surrounding area.

Visitors to Marginis are expected to be trade based:
- Inter-alliance sellers of POS products (Raws, Processed Materials, Advanced Materials)
- Inter-alliance buyers of POS products
- Alliance and inter-alliance sellers of named loot (Escrow)
- Empire buyers/sellers of Advanced Materials
- Empire sellers of Tech2 ships and equipment
- Alliance buyers of Tech2 ships and equipment
- Empire sellers of compressed ores (eg. Passive Targetters, Small Hull Repairers).
- Nearby POS owners
- ISS Alliance Members

ISS Marginis chat channel
'ISS Marginis Public': A general chat for the system and area. Beware pirates trying to trick you into undocking etc. Pirate corps will be banned from channel as they are identified.

Insta-jump bookmarks
Insta-jump bookmarks to the station will be available on the market through escrow shortly for a nominal fee, both in Marginis system and in 0.0 entry systems. The only reliable and approved distributors of these bookmarks are ISS Logistics, ISS Marginis Outpost Corporation and Interstellar Starbase Syndicate Operations. The bookmarks are offered to be freely traded between players, corporations and alliances.

Docking fees
The outpost is owned by the people who bought shares in it during the Initial Public Offering of Marginis shares which we held in the beginning of October. The shareholders expect a return on their investment. This return comes in the form of rising share value and regular dividends from the ISS Marginis Outpost corporation who technically administer the outpost. To create profit to pay dividends, the current ingame mechanics only give us two ways to earn ISK - docking fees and repair fees.

The docking fees are not high, as an example it costs around 80.000 ISK to dock a Bestower, but they are there, because they have to be. We would very much prefer to tax fx. market transactions instead, but this is not possible with the current game mechanics.

Read about docking regulations here

There are 5 offices remaining, which are offices not already claimed by investors, that will be put on auction in the 'For Sale' forums on

Office owners receive a 10% discount on docking fees, and hold the Ďtitleí to the office as long as they donít let the rent lapse. This means we will respect their right to re-sell the offices in the future, with the new owner taking over the 10% docking discount. The cost for the transfer will be a nominal sum as % of the auction value of the original value.

Factories and labs
Factories and labs are assigned to ISS Management Corporations for revenue generation. When factories are re-programmed to be 'Per Job Basis' as per recent Dev Blog, they will be opened to all-comers.


ISS would like to credit the following pilots and entities for service above and beyond the call of duty related to the construction of ISS Marginis.

For procurement and hauling of the incredible quantities of materials needed to build the outpost: ISS Logistics - especially Stins, Cker, Vic Arbor

For defense, escort and other security related tasks:
ISS Navy - especially Simon Illian and Superscarface

For all round duty:
Jarizza Syndicate - Zark Brassen, Zephyir, Godon III

And last, but not least, for structuring the IPO and superb project management, we extend our gratitude to the beautiful Serenity Steele.

We also need to mention the dozens and dozens of ISS pilots who, in the last hours of the project, provided protection and extra hauling capability. Thank you all!

Indeed, we think that the 24th of October, was a good day to be part of ISS !
