    • Powerplay Unpledge Notice – Due to the changes coming in with Powerplay and consensual PvP, Any cmdr with 0 merits assigned against them on the 26th will be unpledged from their power. This is to stop people who haven’t ‘Powerplayed’ for a time not to be seen as fair game by PvP’s. There is nothing stopping you re-pledging after the 26th but if you have a single merit, you will remain pledged and therefore seen as fair game for any PvP players in Open and the Private Groups. So, if you want to PvP, go Powerplay!

      Anyone who is interested should email info@edrpg.co.uk with the email address they used to back us with and the name they opted to go for in the credits.
    • Mobius PVE group – There appears to be a little confusion about PvP rules within Combat Zones in the PVE group raised by the present CG. At the moment, you can fire on other players in a CZ if they are on the other side. However constant player killing in the CZs is frowned upon and if you keep on killing Cmdrs, you will get banned. Due to the number of incidents of ‘Not so Friendly Fire’, they are thinking about a blanket PvP Ban, even in CZs. We’ll let you know what they decide.

  • Official Statement regarding Lave:
      • The Alliance of Independent Systems has been in and around the Lave cluster for quite some time now and many Alliance pilots found a first or second home in the region. While the systems around Alioth that founded the Alliance are certainly its political center, the Old Worlds in the eyes of many can be seen as its economical heart. For this exact reason Prime Minister Mahon started an initiative in June 3301 to strengthen the economical bonds with the systems around Leesti. To ensure the safety of traders of all affiliations, Mahon didn’t hesitate to announce the open trade agreement for the whole Lave cluster and officially commissioned the Alliance Defence Force to establish a permanent presence in the sector to fight piracy and crime. (Galnet News from 28 JUN 3301)

    While Leesti has been a place of trouble more than once in the last couple of years, Lave used to be a peaceful system with tremendous growth. It was only until a broadcast of the local Lave Radio announced to claim rights over Lave Station that members of the ADF realized the old system was on the edge of a civil war. We, the signing Alliance groups, immediately mobilized for a joint operation alongside independent Alliance pilots to help the local government to restore law and order.
    Despite a quick but hard-earned victory over the passionate fighting supporters of the Lave Radio Network, we hereby make the recommendation towards the local government to grant the LRN control over the local Warinus station in order to ensure long-term peace and cooperation rather than permanent skirmishes and instability. If the local factions agree on this proposal, we are willing to support LRN in the necessary work to move offices and staff between stations. We commit ourselves to this endeavour for the good of all citizens within the Old Worlds.

    The Alliance has shown strength in defending their citizens, now it is time to show tolerance and kindness. The whole conflict seems to be an issue of communication and clarity of intentions rather than malevolence. We hope this offer will help to comfort those who feel frustrated about what happened, and that it will build bridges between those who fought each other in a futile conflict. For that Lave will be a peaceful, merry place again.

    Signing Alliance groups in alphabetical order:
    AEDC (Alliance Elite Diplomatic Corps)
    Aid (The Allies)
    AMF (Alliance Military Force)
    DAWN (New Dissident And Wired Network)
    RI (Remlok Industries)
    TCF (Terran Colonial Forces)

    • I’m Whitmann, and I’ve just returned to the Bubble after a year in Colonia with CCN, where among other things I wrote for and edited the Colonia Gazette.I’m looking at putting together something along those lines Bubbleside, monthly format, featuring the best writers I can (ahem) press-gang into contributing. Already have six on board. Magazine will feature any and all genres, from straight reportage and interviews through to RP fiction – as long as it’s a high standard.
