Angel Cartel conduct planetary attack in Oddelulf, hundreds dead

Comments Off on Angel Cartel conduct planetary attack in Oddelulf, hundreds dead

MOLDEN HEATH – Just over an hour ago, a fleet of ships belonging to the Angel Cartel conducted a multi-pronged attack and invasion on the settlement of Tialdshad on the planet Oddelulf III. The exact death toll is unknown at this time but confirmed to be in the hundreds, with just over a thousand people injured in the attack.

The Cartel force, numbering over 60 starships and several landing parties, focused their attention on a cluster of Genesis Vaults, giant biodomes containing a wide variety of plant life. The Genesis Vaults are a project initiated by the Thukker tribe but now spearheaded by the Matar Society for Natural Preservation and funded by Native Freshfood. Their purpose is genetic synthesis and eventual full reconstruction of Matar's native flora, large parts of which were destroyed during the Amarr Empire's invasion and occupation of the planet.

"It's devastating," said Gunger Anra, foreman of the Matar Society for Natural Preservation. "This was one of our two biggest vault clusters, and there's almost nothing left of it. Years of dedicated research and billions of ISK down the drain. And for what? What does the Cartel stand to gain from destroying our hard work?" When asked if the Society would make any adjustments to security at the largest remaining Vault site, located at Yishinoon II*, Anra declined to comment.

The attack comes on the heels of a message intercepted by an unknown party and leaked to independent news outlets this morning, where a pair of alleged Angel Cartel capsule pilots are said to be discussing a planned surprise attack on a group they refer to, variously, as "savages" and "gardeners." The motive for the attack is wholly unknown at this point.

*Errata: Due to a miscommunication at time of going to press, the location of the largest remaining Vault site was incorrectly stated. The actual location is Bogelek II.

by ISD Tedra Kerrigan

Amamake, Heimatar - The Heretic Army is running a continual frigate battle known as Frigfest in the Amamake Solar System. The event started on the 17th of September and so far more than three billion ISK of ships and equipment have been destroyed in that system.

There are several prizes up for grabs including a faction-fit faction frigate of the winner's choice for top solo killer, and a T2 frigate with T2 fittings for the overall top killer.

EVE Players to run a fleet in tribute of Vile Rat

Comments Off on EVE Players to run a fleet in tribute of Vile Rat

On Saturday, September 15 at 19:00 UTC (EVE time) there will be a major fleet operation on Tranquility named "Vile Rat Diplomatic Disaster Op". Players from all over EVE will be forming up in some of the most expensive ships and roaming to destroy everything that is not in fleet, probably killing some blues as well. This operation will be streamed on own3D on Lazarus Telravens channel. All proceeds generated from views will be given to Sean Smith’s wife and children. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you to turn ad blockers off so that the maximum amount can be raised.

The operation is due to go on until all the shiny ships have been destroyed or until the fleet just outright destroys everyone. The only way to find out is to tune in to the stream today.
