On the eve of the beginning of our war against the terrorist alliance Ushra'Khan, I find myself pondering the following transmission recieved by Crusader HQ.


To: Admiral Graelyn, CEO - The Aeternus Crusade
From: Chief Draconis, CEO - Northern Storm

I notice you have control over holdings with views to uphold the Amarrian Views and it's borders. Though I also notice your midsts are tainted with the heathen devilry that are the Gallente. No doubt with your blasphemous views towards our lords servants the heathen Minmatar would also probably indicate the sickening fact they're amongst you as well.

I don't know how you call yourself an Amarr with your blasphemous treatment of the Amarrian ways, but your true colours shine to me and those that are true to what we are.

We shall be watching you, Graelyn of Aeternus Crusade.

As I read these words, I can only sigh in dismay.
This attitude is nothing new. I knew it from my first days as a pod pilot. Despite all of the sacrifices and successes I have witness from my wingmen and fellow officers....has been ignored or lessened by the birthrace of the men commanding the ships.

I embark now on a journey to Amarr, to pray on my soil of my homeland one last time before the war is active. Along the way, I read the Pax Amarria. These pages are well worn, as my copy has seen extensive use, the pages covered in notes and highlights. They are not the word of scripture, but they are the word of truth, wisdom from the Mouth of God.

The very basis of the reclaiming centers around The Amarr's chosen task; to unite all of humanity in worship of it's creator. The Golden fleets, the Grand Cathedrals, every fiber of our being as a race works towards this goal. All else is meaningless. This is our duty to God.

Why then, do we make it so hard for those of other races who give thier lives willingly for our Lord?

It is one of the great sticky questions of our people. We understand slavery, why it exists, and it's role. We understand the necessity of military force to accomplish was has been set before us. Why then are so many of our brothers and sisters in God of the other races so looked down upon?

This is not a cry for equality, a plea for tolerance, or any such nonsense. An Amarrian understands the myth that stands behind each of these words. Weak minds find comfort in thier lies. The Amarr were chosen by God, as His people.

Respect.....that is another matter.

My pilots follow me into the jaws of death. Caldari, Gallente, even Ammatar. They have given thier souls to God, and chosen an Amarrian to lead them unto death's door. I have seen thier bravery, dedication, and piety. I have seen thier faith, and it is as a beacon to my soul in the darkest of times.

I have seen these pilots shunned, questioned, accused, and harrassed again and again by the very people they fight for.

I know my pilots will continue to prove thier worth, time and time again. They will do it with zeal and perseverance....and together we will bring Light to the world and safety for our people.

Whether our people are watching or not.

An interesting warning. Fortunately, God is my judge, not man...be he Chosen or not. A question does pop into my mind, though:

Who are the Northern Storm? I've not seen them fighting and dying against the terrorist threat.

I say let 'em watch you, sir. Let them watch us. We work better with an audience. Perhaps Mr. Draconis will learn of the shortcoming of words in the face of actions.

Watch closely...

Whoever they are, they are nothing but specs in the greater war. I wlcoem the upcoming conflict, and I know that Garreck and his ilk will fight with every bit of misguided conviction they have shown in the past.

Bear your guns Garreck, I've been looking forward to crossing my turrents with your hybrids.

Well said, very well said. There is a fine line between blind hatred of those who are inferior to the Amarr and understanding that god made us masters of the galaxy to enjoy and use all that he created.

It is they my brother not you who are the true blasphmers. If thanks be to god, some of the inferiors have become enlightened enough to do his will, no one should question it.

I pray that all Amarr will begin to understand that god created each of these beings for a reason. Hating them simply for what they are, questions his wisdom in making them.

If an Amarrian hates someone based on that person's race, regardless of his/her attempts to achieve salvation and do god's will,that Amarrian is going against god's purpose in creating that being. It is they and not you who betray the one who rules the hearts of us all.

I shall order my novices to burn incense and pray for your success. May god and the emperor (blessed be his holy name) smile upon you and your holy quest.

This is a confusing posting. This letter was send to Graelyn and signed by Graelyn!?!

I've made some research on Northern Storm. Founder is a Caldari named Skip Desoto. Northern Storm seem to prefer doing missions for the Republic fleet.


I suppose the real topic of this thread is about foreigners working for Amarr. With pride I repeat my point of view. Only Amarrians in amarrian ships can represent amarrian superiority.

Do not confuse my point of view with antipathy for mixed race corporations who are fighting for amarian interests. I have some respect for foreigners under amarian supervision. Amax is a fine example. Of course such corporations never will be able to claim to be pure amarrian corporations because they are mixed corporations.

I know not all Amarrians share my point of view. Some have a more liberal point of view. Kor-Azor and the udorian Tash-Murkon are such examples. Here are two statements which were made before the succession who show that I am not the only one thinking in a traditional way:
"... fit for ants and vermin but not pure blooded Ammarians." - A spokesman of Jamyl Sarum

"No undeserving creature can represent us" - Idonis Ardishapur

You and I, Sidyous, have unfinished business.

and Ardor, it was "We shall be watching you, (in reference to) Graelyn of Aeternus Crusade", not signed by Graelyn himself. The grammer may be bad, but the intent was obvious me thinks.

Graelyn

You are actively questioning the workings of the Amarr Empire. This is good. Question it more and you will see how hollow it is.

All races fight for freedom againt the Amarr Empire. In the Ushra'Khan we have pilots fromm all empires, even Amarr. All are treated the same. All are honored brothers and sisters in the cause. None are looked down upon as inferior. All fight willingly by choice, not duty.

Yes Graelyn, question more.

You speak as though I believe the Amarr incapable of fault.

I assure you, I am not. I leave such declarations to my brethren in PIE.

I believe in change. However, I believe in the Amarr way of accomplishing it. Change within the Empire is slow and calculated, as is everything we as a people set out to do. We do not think of ourselves, and what we may accomplish as individuals. Amarrians see time by centuries, not years, using our lives to plant a seed that future generations will see to fruition.

Such are the reasons this mighty Empire stands as it does today.

I wish for change in some aspects of our culture, and actively work towards that change. I'm sure Ushra'Khan keeps a file somewhere on my activities. I seek to plant a seed that will bloom long after this unnnatural life has ended.

I do NOT kill innocent men, women, and children in my quest to accomplish such goals!

I have repeatedly heard the many attempts to justify such behavior. "I kill tons of folks, but I do it to save my brethren. Does that make me a bad person?"

Why yes. Yes it does. It makes you a murderer.

The Minmitaar do not possess the Amarrian ability of patience. Bloodlust seems to be the chosen substitute. Those that make this choice, I shall see burn.

Any questions?

Strange, why are you blaming your translator module when you and Graelyn are both Amarrian, and therefore speak the same language?

Even stranger, how come I can suddenly read your mind and know that you were thinking about your translator module?

Remember, prior to the AMarr conquest of our space we Minmatar were a peacefull lot. We had developed spaceflight and how to use Jumpgates. We had colonies on many worlds.

When the Amarr came, we extended our hands out in friendship, only to have them clasped in manacals. If we are bloodthirsty murderers, than that is what YOU and slavery have made us.

Reap what you have sown.

Metatron is a somewhat new incarnation of the old Sabaoth Incorporated. A name that should be included in basic Amarr education, as far as I'm concerned.

Of course I remember Sabaoth. They were the first 'independent' Amarr only corporation. A great inspiration for all Amarrians. One of the very few amarr only corps (maybe the only) with a history older than mine. But I was active all the time and have not turned away from the amarr only priciple like Metatron. From my point of view Metatron is nothing compared to Sabaoth and they should not misuse the good name of Sabaoth. Of course I realize that some Metatron members were Sabaoth before.

I still see no connection from the Republic Fleet mission runner corporation Northern Storm to Metatron or Sabaoth. The description of Northern Storm reads: " Gate Camp Crashers, and General Party Poopers. IMPERIUM". That doesnt sound like Sabaoth to me. And only because one member at one time was in Endless Corporation that doesnt mean he is a good Amarrian, don't you agree?

Metatron has little to do with this I'd wager, since at the time of thier passing into inactivity, we were war allies.

Avoiding the stereotypical rumblings of thunder and evil chuckles, the spirit of Sabaoth will awake from it's brief catnap relatively soon. I just have to tinker around a bit with something Minmats should pay no attention to.

As far as to the original point of this post, being the PR rep to Metatron, Draconis is a familiar name, but during my phase in Metatron that name has not been on our employmet records.

Noble Graelyn, I can assure you that this is mearly an attempt by some GalNet lowlife to superimpose himself into something he is not part of. Metatron remembers her individual friends, and continues to respect and support them from either space, the planets below, or even from undisclosed locations in hostile territories.

Have an enlightened day, citizens...
