Gentlemen and Ladies,

As some may be aware, the Jericho Fraction declared war on the Praetorian Guard some weeks ago in direct support of Oracle and their rightful mission to end the practise of slavery in Amarr border zones and the deeper political structure of the empire thence thereafter.

This war has thus far proved something of a false-conflict; as Jericho vessels have rarely sighted Praetorian assets, and perhaps because of the very success of Oracle actions in frontline confrontations, we have gained no significant opportunity to further cripple the Praetorian war machine in open warfare.

Now however, fortune grants a further opportunity to aid our allies and friends in Oracle, and with the permission and foreknowledge of Voushod Sarkos I duly declare that Jericho will widen the remit of the declared war to include PIE Inc and new combined entity formed by the merger. At the first available opportunity we shall make notification by formal channels, and though the process of declaration itself is hindered as always by the damnable corrupt bureaucracy of the Concord, let it be known that Jericho assets and vessels shall with immediate effect consider PIE/Praetorian vessels and interests fair game for attack and disruption in marginal space, with unlimited operational parameters to follow the formal opening of hostilities thereafter pending.

This declaration is limited for now to Jericho Fraction individually amongst the Venal powers, and we ask no formal support from our allies, (though if such support were to be forthcoming ‘twould be our pleasure to make common cause beyond the limits of our realm).

In faith then,

I am,

I find it amusing that the Jericho Fraction throws its weight behind Oracle Corp when said corp already outmans and outguns us.

Obviously the merger of 1st Praetorian Guard and PIE Inc. has made some people in Oracle nervous that they feel the need to surround themselves with such allies.

And Jade - I am interested - Last night I talked with your corporation member Athule Snamn regarding the increasing incursions of Minmatar into Amarr space and from that conversation was of the impression that he was a loyal subject of the Emperor and all for defending the Empire's boundaries against the incursions of Mnimatar raiders such as Oracle.

What role does he and the other Amarr in your corporation play in this upcoming war? Are they forced to fight against the only Amarr Corporation that has been willing to put its neck on the line in defence of the Empire?

Despite adding your name to the list of enemies that beset us we look forward to meeting you on the battlefield and demonstrating that not all Amarr are prepared to be dictated to by outsiders.

We hope that Jericho Corporation will abide by the same rules of war which we have already agreed with Oracle and which have so far been honourable abided by on both sides.

And finally a plea to all Amarr spacers and Corporations - Will you idly standby when one of your number wages honourable war on behalf of the Emperor? We are outmanned and out gunned but we can no longer tolerate outside forces infringing the sovereignity of the Empire and enforcing their rules upon us. Therefore we will fight!

If you have one ounce of loyal Amarr blood in your veins then please feel free to assist us in our hour of need. In particular intelligence on the location of Oracle Corp members and mining operations would be most welcome as we try and disrupt their flow of resources!

Loyal Amarr are encouraged to open communications with us through our dedicated communications portal: www.pie-inc.com

I agree that the Jericho Fraction is coming very close to proving itself two faced. In one message I read of their support for Amarr causes, in another, I read of their wholesale support of the extreemist Oracle corp in their battles, and in another I hear Oracle crying for the downfall of all things Amarr, without regard for diplomacy or discussion.

Perhaps Jericho is an anarchist corporation, playing both sides against the middle to trick us all? I for one cannot trust anything they say, with such blatently contradictory rhetoric.

In accordance with the Will of His Imperial Holiness I monitor the activities of the Jerchite organisation. As they pose no threat to the might of Amarr I make no attempt to hide that fact. It is no secret that the Jerichites support the actions of Minmatar extremist elements and although I oppose this completely I must obey the orders of my superiors until otherwise instructed and not interfere with the Jerichite's deeds - no matter how distasteful this may be. Neither will I however assist the Jerichites in any way which will harm the interests of Amarr or its loyal citizens.

Athule makes more sense than his ranting CEO - it's a pitty that you can't see that.

He is a firm believer and defender of the sciptures. Would you have gone against the Jovians in a shuttle?

Oracle fights for freedom of the Minmatar people, who still wear shackles within the Amarr empire. We fight against slavery where ever we can. Tis not our will to wage war with the Amarr commoner, the ones who break up and then trade and sell Minmatar families into slavery are the ones we'r after.

Well, to date over 4000 slaves have been freed. Allow me to tell you of standard operation procedures in Oracle.

Warp Disrupt the transport and scan for slaves.
If none are found, sorry for the delay.

If slaves are detected, please jettison them.
If slaves are jettisoned, name is registered as next offence loses ship. Have a nice day, get slaves.

If slaves are not jettisoned, ship is destroyed and slaves taken.

We go out of our way to assure no innocents are hurt. We only target those that deal in slaves as a trade item. All flesh merchants will be dealt with.

Dear Lady Jade I must confess myself intriguged by the naming of thy battlecruiser. If I have guessed aright it is a merry naming in deed. For those who have expressed diappointment with Jericho I must ask why? They are a corp like all other existing only to futher the goals and ambition of their members. Neither hero's nor villians. Lastly...Lady Jade I have sent thee a missive regarding an ethical conundrum I have found myself in and I plead for your counsel.

Yesterday. Any more dumb questions? Twisted Evil

As Athule has expressed a previous desire to eat out brains and use our DNA strands for bracelets, i'm not entirely sure where this is gonna go... especially adding in the recent, ah, PR consulting Jade's been doing for TTI.

Tracing the lines of support, antagonism, alliances, wars, and NAPs will now require Perseus-like abilities, i think...

I think with this single statement you have successfully confused everyone Twisted Evil

When flight or fight is not an option, what should be made standard operating procedure for labor transports when confronted with Oracle or others who seek to impeed the trade in legal goods within the Empire?

Jettison slaves. Destroy cannister.

By the way, I think trade in robotic parts is evil. I will now make it my life's mission to liberate them. Over 300 liberated so far.

You will not find that I dabble in the techniques of witchery such as your Jovian friends do - it was not I who revealed the consumption of human biomass as a sacrament to Lucifer. Neither would the use of Mystic DNA as a body ornament be of any interest to me. Such samples are collected in the name of Science - to further allow His Imperial Holiness to expose the truth behind His Will.

Bad Harlequin you are definitely correct there!

All I know for sure is that in a few days time the war will resume between PIE Inc and Oracle Corporation. That is a definite.

To be honest we do not know why Jade Constantine (Jericho Fraction) decided to intervene in this war - especially as we are aware that not all members in her own Corporation are happy with it and continue to express their doubts about going to war with a Corporation loyal to the Emperor and the Amarr way of life.

Maybe it is yet another attempt at public relations or should I say self-glorification (as highly readable and amusing as they are Wink).

This dispute is between the Amarr and the upstart Minmatar, who have decided to enter our space and dictate how we should lead our lives. Jericho Fraction's 'Casus Belli' is weak to say the least!

Despite being outnumbered and outgunned by the combined Oracle and Jericho forces PIE Inc looks forward to meeting on the battlefield and demonstrating that not all Amarr will sit by and allow the Minmater to ride roughshod over our culture and way of life.

Although we have received welcome pledges of support from other Amarr spacers and Corporations, these have until now lacked in detail and commitment.

We only hope that the Amarr can put internal divisions behind them and unite to defend the Empire in the face of unwarranted Minmatar aggression and terrorism.

Good afternoon everyone, nice to see a climate of open debate and fair questions duly raised, I shall deal with the points as best I can;

[Monsieur Hardin of PIE Inc made comment and question on several matters.]

On the declaration of War this is the most straightforward to answer; for Jericho was already at war with the 1st Praetorian Guard and it would have been disloyalty to our allies and friends in Oracle Corp to use this merger as an opportunity to set away from the responsibilities of shared intention. Call us what you will m’dear, but Jericho is not, and never will be without principle.

On the role of Athule Snamn and other Amarri nationals within Jericho; this too is relatively simple, for Jericho is neither dictatorship nor tyrannising hierarchy, but a political cause with intention and guiding visionary ethics. It is not for me to bind another sentient mind to cause in conflict with moral choice … Athule is a loyal citizen of the emperor and servant of the imperial faith … he and I disagree about the role of reactionary customs in the imperial households, and he and I disagree on Amarri policy upon the Minmatar issue, but as much as those issues divide us, there is more with the aegis of Jericho Fraction to call our hearts to future shining truth and goals thereafter.

On the rules of war previously followed by Oracle and Amarri foes; yes monsieur Jericho will abide by the conventions agreed.

On the matter of reasons and public relations spin so alleged; monsieur Hardin you are disingenuous and short-sighted in one breath (and that takes effort) … I sir, was once a slave-courtesan of the imperial court and won my freedom with violent action and no little aid from those without. ‘tis foolish m’dear to believe that sentient thoughts once bound do not return to share the plight of those still enduring the humiliation of brutal servitude.

But my heart aside, ‘tis the avowed intention of Jericho at large to drive progressive endeavours that visionary heights of technological aspiration be harnessed to change the nature of things profoundly. And this aim, monsieur Hardin, is hardly yet in keeping with the dark age of sentient slavery and reactionary protectionism named as sacred to your guiding principles.

[Synapse Archae of Janus Pilot Corps made ironic comment of our “two-faced” presentation.]

Though I believe I have answered the bulk of the question above, there remains her supposition that Jericho is an anarchist corporation thriving on trickery and chaos. In simple terms Synapse Archae is entirely correct, for our dreams of a future freed from hierarchical tyranny will be born from chaos and bloodshed, but then, the only thing that separates the end point of anarchy from pure nihilistic excess is vision, and in time my dear, ‘tis my faith at least that such will shine a light of truth upon our broad intentions.

[Monsieur Tharrn of PIE Inc. rather surreally accused me of bedding Jovians]

To which I must confess I am somewhat lost for a response; indeed, though I’ve enjoyed the intimate caress of many strains of lost humanity I’ve yet to experience the doubtful pleasure thus presented. Though again ironically, I might suggest that Sir Tharrn might turn this particular accusation more rightly upon the scions and blooded nobles of the Sarum family for many yet the rumours of future alliance between this militarist house and the mysteries Jovian authorities. And no monsieur, I would not have attacked an enemy in a shuttlecraft … perhaps I just don’t have the psychological makeup for martyrdom non?

[Monsieur Harakiri ranted boldly, and monsieur Discorporation was again disappointed in Jericho]

Bravo to Harakiri! ‘tis well enough you do not forget the methods of assassination since I hear it oftimes rumoured you have yourselves a use and target for such direct interventional methodology.

And my compliments once more to Discorporation, though I am surprised at your disappointment m’dear, I would have thought our thoughts on these matters most revealed by now?

[And dearest Miso spoke of boiling pans]

Indeed my sweet and thy blessing the merest piquant spice to bring the dish to sizzling splendour…

[And Harlequin spoke of confusion and lines of alliance murkily obscured]

Well my motley renegade, ‘tis truth beyond I have never cloaked my thoughts on these matters, and regardless of the words of others (oft-spoken loudly) I have maintained a consistent strain of political belief and ethical commitment thereout. Of TTI and Venal and band of valiant rogues and black-hearted villains there arrayed, well monsieur, let no-one say they lack a taste for freedom’s bright reprise in sheets of painted-flame beyond the tapestry of stars. Many the tyrant dreams uncherished yet in Venal space, few the chains of convention and concord to slay the faith of hearts unbroken.

Ah milord in tattered hue, my hand is offered in alliance as sure ‘twas yet to Sarkos pledged, is it too difficult a leap of faith to take it?

[And dear Maud Dib to my defence did thoughtless bring a sleighting note …]

We are no corporation like any other monsieur, indeed I’d wager we are a band of comrades pledged like few others far indeed. For ‘tis not the thoughts of fiscal profit nor nationalist desire, nor mere adventure, nor wanton violence, nor any few such passions there combined to drive our goals and dreams to future vision sweet and bold.

Nay monsieur, say it not so carelessly, for others would have it such and sleep-a-bed the better thence, but no foolish fool’s resolve will suit the passing of thy wit.

And of thy missive yes good sir, I have received and replied and await thy thoughts without.

And of my ship, well, a lady must perchance maintain some little mystery m’dear, ‘tis tiring work this philosophical denudement … ;)

Love and peace (in the ruins)

Thy pardon Lady if I have given offense in the naming of thy corp. Tis true few indeed know what the true workings of thy comrades are and so must indeed apply the standard measures by which other corps are valued. Last night I aquired a great deal of valuable property form a stranger for a sum far less than it was obviously worth and since then I have been racked with guilt over wether or not I have dealt fairly with this man. Since then I have been unable to focus on the courtly graces with define a gentleman to my sorrow as I have been consummed with the manner hand handling of my most fortunate if perplexing situation. My regard to thee and thine.

We repaid an old score. You see once the joves was warring with you, thus weakening your borders and hold on the Minmatarian republic.
Ouria was a veteran of this war, and he called upon Oracle to help him, we did, because we have honour, integrity and high moral principles..

We at Oracle strife to make people free, from bondage, tyrannie and other evil inhuman things, devised by the weakminded simpletons, trying to lord over us as they please, that you will never understand...

Well Miso considering that you once told me that you looked forward to:

'****ing on my frozen corpse'

and also that you were intending to

'mount my frozen corpse above your fireplace'

(which would certainly make the '****ing' thing interesting to watch!)

I thought the time had come to promote you from mere 'antagonist' to 'sworn enemy'. Sorry I didn't tell you about this Smile

With regard Maud Dib being in posession of 'nudie pics' of my fair self. I can understand why they would be of interest to yourself and Oracle.

Unfortunately these resulted from my misguided attempt to break into modelling at a young age and if indeed these are the pics that Maud Dib is hawking around I will be compelled to launch legal action Razz

****ing on a frozen corpse is a sign of affection in Intaki circles.

As for mounting you on my mantelpiece - that was strictly non-sexual, you naughty boy. Take yourself in hand immediately (perhaps you already are).

In future, I would appreciate an evemail to inform me of my elevation on the Amarr hate-o-meter - my corp HQ is, afterall, in Abaim and I think I left the gas on... oh, well, too late to go back and check now.

Hardin, I don't think that I could ever have the heart to pod you now. Though I wil trash your ship.
