For a long time now Advanced Logistics has been operating in Molden Heath and The Forge. If someone had a package to move, be it Rifters for GoonSwarm or Devastator Cruise Missiles for Ultima Rati0 I was the man people came to. I was the go to guy. The fastest logistics pilot in all of Molden Heath & The Forge. Able to move anything anywhere, any time. Well, all good things come to an end...

You see, ADVL for a while now has been under such increased demand that we have needed to take on additional pilots, and well... these new ’08 ’09 pilots are simply a different breed to us. Finding new staff was hard. The younger pilots all want to be frigate racers, elite and feared mercenaries like KIA Eddz or an inspirational leader like the great Aneu Angellus. Finding new employees was very difficult.

Of the dozen or so pilots who applied, keen to cruise their big rig up and down the great Jewper Highway - only one seemed a suitable candidate, we’ll call him JM. Upon investigation other pilots had histories of gambling addiction and outstanding debts with EOH. Some seemed to have histories as violent, dishonest pirates - killing people after they’d already taken all of their money! I couldn’t have such scum working for me. None of these guys would do, except for JM of course.

JM was a perfect young pilot and I knew the first time we met he had great officer potential. Graduated top of his class at Pator Tech, respectable ties to well known alliances and the friendly with the local militia. A quick witted, well educated man who could handle himself in a Skarkon brawl was exactly what I needed.. so I gave him the job, to start that very day.

His first week’s work was impressive. I’d never seen a professional like this in all my years in the trade. I couldn’t believe this was his first week in the courier trade. In his second week he exceeded the load counts and hours logged of every single ADVL employee including myself!

I was very pleased with myself. ADVL was keeping on top of the contracts and operation costs had gone down too. Everything was going so well... Until one day. The day I would make the worst decision I could have ever made. JM had been a bit down that day and I picked up on that straight away, I always payed close attention to the morale of the men in my employ.

At the end of that day I pulled JM aside and asked him what was wrong... He said nothing was wrong but I knew something was up. Worried for my valued employee and friend I told him to meet me at the Bosena Tavern. I knew he had a thing for the Exotic Dancers. After a few drinks I pressed him for answers.

Some hours and many bottles of spiced wine I had gotten it all out of him. JM told me he was drawing up the papers to start his own business but felt bad about becoming the competition, it was weighing on his conscience and he wanted to get it off his chest. It dawned on me, this was my best employee - the best I had ever had - he was better than all the other pilots I had in my employ - if he had left and started his own business ADVL would be ruined!

I couldn’t let it happen. Without thinking a terrible deal I blurted out “Look. What if Make you a one-third parter, a director even!”. I will always regret those words. Something in his eyes changed, like those were the words he wanted to hear. The next day I drew up the papers and we filed them, declaring JM as a full ADVL director.

I think you the reader not being as naive as I was at that particular moment can guess what had happened next. I woke up the next day, slightly intoxicated in my Rapier cloaked outside the Bosena Tavern to the buzzing sound of a message alert from one of my employees, Star Dancer. We had been robbed.

All of our corporate assets were gone. Our corporate accounts drained into JM’s personal account. I tried to contact JM. No response. I never did get an explanation. Our corporation would never recover from this theft.

Over 12 billion ISK in funds was taken along with the entire contents of our ships & equipment hangars. Our brand new Anshar and Nomad class Jump Freighter, the escort vessels too. Over two dozen Recons of all kinds gone too.

Such a blow we simply cannot recover from. It’s for this reason that ADVL has closed it’s doors, for good. We wish to thank our many business partners over the years:

GoonSwarm: We always gave you lower rates because you guys are *special*

Ultima Rati0: I hope you can find someone to keep up with your demand for Devastator Cruise Missiles

Red Alliance: Surely you don’t need any more towers shipped in?

Intrepid Crossing: I’m sorry all those components I hauled out were stolen. I feel your pain.

Shadow of xXDEATHXx: You’ll get those replacement drakes out their somehow!

I can’t list all our partners here on this page, I’d surely run out of room. Just know that I appreciated the business.

So, what will Awox do now? Well... It has come to my attention that JM is now a member of an evil organization of metagamers formerly based out of Delve who of recent have taken to recruitin’ absolutely anyone they can get. JM can’t hide there. I’ve also made a change, I’ve joined The Illuminati. [O****] and together with the assistance from my friends in GoonSwarm - I will be there to help deliver the final blow to this group. When they can’t protect you any more JM, you will be mine!

I'm most saddened to hear about this development awox, it was always good to hear of your courier work in the east and to see it being brought to an end by a despicable act such as this makes me downright angry Evil or Very Mad

Awox has been in our coalition for but a day, and allready our relations with the swarm have improved immesurably, and I am confident of a swift victory now we have logistics in place to rival our pvp prowess.

was the best of times working for advl, made the best of friends. The Universe will certainly be a harsher place without the services of advl to provide market enhancements all across the galaxies.
