- BREAKING: EOM Avatar and Revelations Fleet Destroyed Following Superweapon Bombardment of Kahah IIIby Lina Ambre on May 5, 2021 at 21:06
Kahah, Khanid – Equilibrium of Mankind capital ships subjecting the planet of Kahah III to railgun and superweapon bombardment have been destroyed in battle with capsuleers and Royal Khanid Navy forces. In a serious blow to the EOM, an Avatar-class titan piloted by the notorious Khanid Warlord Alar Chakaid was destroyed as it rained fire down on the planet. The supporting fleet of EOM Revelation-class dreadnoughts were also destroyed by forces responding to the devastation of Kahah III. The Amarr Empire and Khanid Kingdom have condemned Alar Chakaid as a heretic and repudiated his actions as “grossest heresy, terrorism, and crimes against creation.” At present it is unclear if Alar Chakaid has escaped once more. Orders to hunt down and eliminate the EOM cult conspirators have been issued by Empress Catiz I to all houses, ministries and branches of the Amarr military. Royal Khanid Navy units are conducting search and rescue operations across Kahah III but there are reports of considerable destruction in the agricultural centers hit by the superweapon blasts and accompanying railgun fire. Above: Broadcast purported to be from EOM leader “Ocilan Ardishapur” CONCORD’s Inner Circle is meeting to consider this latest attack and review all available evidence and intelligence gathered from previous attacks, particularly in the light of this event, and the new information and evidence it provides. A broadcast on selected GalNet channels has also been made by a figure that is purported to be Ocilan Ardishapur, the founder and leader of the EOM. Amarr authorities have considered Ocilan Ardishapur dead for at least a thousand years but it is known that captured EOM cultists claim he lives and still leads the organization.
- BREAKING: EOM Capital Fleet Sighted Above Kahah III With Reports of Superweapon Being Firedby Lina Ambre on May 5, 2021 at 19:58
Kahah, Khanid – An EOM capital fleet, reportedly consisting of several dreadnoughts and a titan, has been sighted in orbit of Kahah III. There are unconfirmed reports of a superweapon being fired at a target on the planet. Kahah III is a holding in the Khanid Kingdom dedicated principally to food production and has a large population of commoners and slaves. A major slave rebellion flared up on Kahah III two and a half years ago, following a series of terrorist attacks using a weaponized version of the “Deathglow” narcotic. The rebellion was put down brutally by Khanid Kingdom forces including troops under the command of the notorious Khanid Warlord Alar Chakaid. A recent Brutor Vanguard attack on the Inis-Ilix Theology Council station is believed to have removed Chakaid and his associate Orlon Zashev from prison cells where they were awaiting trial for war crimes by the Amarr authorities. This incident was overshadowed by the recent series of attacks on planets by mercenary dreadnought squadrons but some observers have connected it to these events. If a major attack against Kahah III is underway such speculations may well be vindicated.
- Minmatar Republic Presents Inner Circle Evidence EOM Doomsday Cult Behind Dreadnought Attacksby Ret Gloriaxx on May 5, 2021 at 18:54
Above: Renegade dreadnoughts in battle over Tierijev IV Yulai, Genesis – The Minmatar Republic’s Ambassador Keitan Yun has presented evidence to CONCORD’s Inner Circle indicating that the Equilibrium of Mankind cult is behind several recent dreadnought attacks on planets. Ambassador Yun was accompanied by Hetman General Kanth Filmir, the latter testifying that the evidence was assembled with the co-operation of “loyal Minmatar and allied Gallente capsuleers.” The evidence presented paints a picture of EOM infiltrators in a number of mercenary companies mounting the attacks in Tanoo, Girani-Fa and Tierijev. General Filmir confirmed that the Republic Security Services had managed to penetrate the encryption of a number of logs and encoded data fragments. While in each case the contents of these logs “indicated the mercenaries in question were operating under the orders of national governments” it was determined that the signatures of known EOM encryption and forging methods were in evidence in the recovered materials. “We strongly believe that the Amarr doomsday cult known as ‘the Equilibrium of Mankind’ is behind these attacks and is attempting to foment a wider war between the CONCORD powers,” stated Ambassador Yun. The Gallente Federation’s Ambassador Devan Malate confirmed that the Federal Intelligence Office was analyzing material it had received and that the Federation shared the conclusions of the Minmatar Republic. Responding for the Amarr Empire, Captain Marshal Sirdan xer Qosh noted that “loyal Amarr capsuleers” had provided evidence from Tanoo that corroborated the indications of EOM involvement after deep analysis by “Amarr inquisitorial authorities.” Questioned by Ambassador Yun over “reports of evidence gathered in Floseswin by Amarr paramilitaries”, Marshal xer Qosh responded that “such materials have been classified secret due to ongoing military operations in the militia warzone.” The Caldari State’s Delegate Akimaka Saraki stated that the position of the Caldari State is that the evidence “shows a clear trail to the Equilibrium of Mankind cult, and our own investigators are pursuing the theory of cult terrorist infiltration into the Expert Intervention mercenary company.” The Equilibrium of Mankind are a doomsday cult of Amarr origin that was founded roughly 1,500 years ago by Ocilan Ardishapur, a relative both of the Amarr Emperor of the time and of the head of the Ardishapur Family. The cult is centered around the corrupted teachings of Aramon Khalid, believing that those who do not follow the Equilibrium’s way should be exterminated in order to bring about paradise. Following their distorted beliefs, the EOM have committed several atrocities throughout their history, with the last known major incident thought to be the destruction of Reschard V’s biosphere by an EOM Avatar-class titan.

- BREAKING: Caldari Dreadnoughts Destroyed Over Tierijev IV in Battle to Stop Bombardmentby Lina Ambre on May 3, 2021 at 20:48
Tierijev, Verge Vendor – The squadron of Phoenix-class dreadnoughts bombarding the planet Tierijev IV are reported to have been destroyed by a Federation Navy fleet, EDENCOM’s AEGIS units and capsuleer forces in another pitched battle in orbit of a world threatened by mass destruction from space. Reports indicate that the dreadnoughts were carrying the indentifiers of the Expert Intervention mercenary corporation, a PMC with links to the Nugoeihuvi megacorporation and its Internal Security corporate military. Damage reports are unclear but the Federation defense complex on the surface of Tirerijev IV is believed to have raised its defenses rapidly and warded off most missiles. Others have struck randomly in the surrounding region, with an unconfirmed report claiming an automated mega-plantation dedicated to high-yield wheat crops has been hit by at least one warhead. The news from New Caldari Prime has been dominated by the destruction of the tip of the CEP’s primary spire in Landfall City. CEP Chairman Puok Kossinen remains unaccounted for but the ‘Big 8’ megacorporation CEOs have been stated to be “safe, secure and holding a CEP meeting by remote holographic comms.” The Caldari State’s Inner Circle Delegate, Akimaka Saraki, has requested a full meeting of the Inner Circle after his own conference with several of the Big 8 CEOs. The Federation’s Ambassador Devan Malate has joined the call for a meeting, and the Amarr Empire and Minmatar Republic delegates are understood to be enroute after reporting to their own governments over the weekend.
- BREAKING: Caldari Dreadnoughts Launch Missile Bombardment of Tierijev IV Gallente Defense Complexby Lina Ambre on May 3, 2021 at 19:55
Tierijev, Verge Vendor – A squadron of Phoenix-class dreadnoughts has reportedly begun a bombardment of the fourth planet of the Tierijev system. The apparent strike across the Gallente Federation’s Verge Vendor border with the Citadel region in the Caldari State comes soon after a report of a major explosion at the Caldari CEP’s primary Spire in Landfall City on New Caldari Prime. The status of the Tierijev border system was disputed by the Caldari and Gallente governments for many decades after the end of the Caldari-Gallente War. Although the system was determined to be Gallente territory under the Yulai Accords, it remains a sore point of contention for Caldari nationalists. The Gallente Federation maintains an extensive defense complex on Tierijev IV, and there are a variety of settlements and industrial colonies on the planet. Reports from both New Caldari Prime and Tierijev are confused but the Caldari Navy has declared the “orbital defenses and security of New Caldari Prime intact”. The Federation Navy is reported to be scrambling fleet units to support Tierijev as the bombardment by Caldari dreadnoughts continues. AEGIS defense units in the system are also reported to be responding.
