Here at the Lave Radio Network, we have increasingly become aware of expansionist interfering policy in corners of space that don’t welcome the Alliance. A spearhead heading for Sol and disrupting independent systems at a time the galaxy needs unity and the pilots federation to work together.
The 900 Alliance systems in the galaxy are dwarfed by the 5100 Imperial, 5700 Federal and nearly 9000 Independent worlds. One system, a beacon of genuine independence and the hub for galactic media broadcasts became the figurehead that they felt the need to repress.
What started as an ultimatum and an attempt at gunboat diplomacy has been dressed, in true crocodile tears fashion as a treaty. A treaty that was never ratified, never voted on by the people of Lave and is now being used as justification for conflict and the imposition of suffering on those same people.
However. The people of Lave have voted. They voted for independence, for community and for the colour Orange. The Alliance Elite Diplomatic Corp seek to overturn this by non democratic means and as such are simply a hostile foreign power, using local faction representatives as their patsies.
The Lave Radio Network believes in self determination for the future of the people of Lave and will defend with all its means their right to listen to the radio from a station they govern themselves.
We appreciate the Alliance – we love the Chieftain and are looking forward to testing out the new ships coming soon. The Alliance does indeed have “history” at Lave; indeed Lave Radio’s station Commander, the notable historian Dr Allen Stroud has studied the struggle that saw the Lave System join the Alliance of Independent Systems and has published an Article in the June 3304 edition of Sagittarius Eye highlighting the recent history and factions within Lave. Lave Radio Network also has history in Lave, forming in 3299 and being ratified by the Pilots Federation in 3302. However the recent focus of some elements within Alliance has been in causing trouble in other systems, Lave Radio Network firmly believes that instead of absentee landlords and being drawn into other people’s conflicts, Lave deserves truly independent rule. We would welcome a genuine treaty with the Alliance, an agreement that Lave remains fully self governing in return for our support against the Thargoid threat as and when it comes to the old worlds – a treaty agreed by BOTH parties.
Don’t give in to destruction, authority assaults and pirate tactics – they’re beneath the Alliance – be part of peace and harmony in the Lave System.
Since the fall of Galcop, The Lave System has long been repressed, first by the ruthless and suspiciously long lived Dr. Waldon and since 3265 by their so called liberators, the Alliance who continue to relagate this system to a backwater world for their own benefit.
The Free Citizens of Lave reached out, begging to have their voice heard; and heard it was, by one motley crew broadcasting from an Orange Sidewinder and hosted by a Vending Machine Repair Man… Lave Radio. Working together with the commmunity Lave Radio Network, a non profit organisation have fought off the more militant factions of the Alliance and have secured Castelan Station, which played a key part in Lave’s Revolution as well as the Asteroid Base Warinus and now is the time! We need all commanders who believe in independance to help our citizens vote!
Lave Fortune Organisation is determined to keep Lave a puppet of the Alliance. Even more worryingly we hear that some pilots have threatened Murder upon honest commanders flying in Lave, in a move that runs counter to all the principals that the Alliance of Independant Systems holds incredibly strongly
Lave Radio Network believes in freedom, believes in independance and believes in a FREE LAVE!
Vote Lave Radio Network.
What can I do to help?
Hand in navigation data (ideally one system at a time because of how the BGS gives preference to transactions rather than quantity) to either Warinus or Castellan Station
Run High Influence missions (either passenger or normal) for Lave Radio Network

First KIll Claimed by the Sovereignty -Took 12 of them to do it and it behaved “differently” to other Basilisks. They then found one with more usual behavior and got “hammered” The consensus is they are very hard, but also a great challenge and fun
432 hours from start, so not really a big deal, and I wasn’t too focused on it. I stopped to do the engineers for a bit, and when I wanted Imperial rank for one of them, I found a good spot, so I carried on to King. Also, I did a bit of griefer baiting in PvP when I wanted a break from the grind. I think, with what I know now, I could do it again in half the time. ~D8veh
For a number of years Drew Wagar has been supporting (both with time and 10% of the proceeds from his books) an organisation called the March Wood Project, that provides an alternative for youngsters who fall outside of school, college and work and helping them deal with mental health issues and rebuild their lives. Last weekend it was the victim of a robbery and arson attack in which the charity lost everything. Drew is helping them rebuild so their work can continue. Please head to https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/andrew-wagar to support them.
On Friday I went to a Panel on the Past, Present and Future of XCOM with Julian Gollop, the original creator of X-COM: UFO Defense , and Jake Solomon, creative director of the current XCOM. At the panel I bumped into Cmdr Wishblend and spoke to her about the highlight’s of her day.
On Saturday and Sunday I spoke to a lot of the Smaller Developers including a lot of Masters students from the NFTS. These students have had roughtly 5 months to develop and build their ideas before their presentations at EGX, although they have until Chrismas to finish their project
Not every project has a website up and running for their work, especially those of the National Film and Television School, but where websites are available I’ll like them in the show notes.
Please remember that all of the audio was recorded live at the convention in a noisy environment, so I’ll apologise in advance for any audio issues.
I had the chance to explore so many great games at EGX this year. Falling Sky, even though it’s a student project has a really great feel to it and I’m really interested in where Jonathan Nielssen takes it. I absolutely adored Jo Paterson’s music in May. Sunless Skies, 2000 to 1 and The Town Of Light I found myself getting immediately immersed in and I could have so easily played them for hours, which of course you can’t have at a convention, but I’ll definately be picking these up and playing some more of them when I have some free time!
