GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENT

December 15, 2007

On 0930 GMT today, our forces have launched an all out attack in the Sardonyx Sector in locale gaming locale 983-0083-0038. This is a broadcast;

” Dear Sardons,

 As you all know we have been fighting for nearly 6 months with hardly any resolution. Today our interspacing forces along with 18 of the ‘Internationale’ have broken through the salient, east of the Arullian plains in a surprise lightning attack. There are almost 170 divisions in the order of battle.

It gives me no pleasure to say that we have tried every possible avenue to explore peace, but failed, because of the corrupt leadership of the Sardonyx Senate who are intent on prolonging this mischief at the greater detriment of the Mining Federation.

Great people of Sardonyx, I Darkness have no quarrel with you. I give you my word, our troops will abide by the order of Kanly and we come in the name of peace.

Please welcome our liberation force with open arms – as we are here to free you.

Kind people of Sardonyx, you have nothing to lose but your chains.

Darkness”

    We are no match for the professional and seasoned troops of the seige machine – we wish to surrender – however, we have been unable to establish a diplomatic link to the invasionary forces – will darkness extend his hand of friendship to save us? We await his reply.

    [This is a general broadcast – com-sat]

    “Listen to me. Proyonkha has 4 subterranean levels, of which we know of. What abt the ones we do not know of? – we know it has a combined labyrinth network close to 13,000 km, I have every reason to believe our intelligence is wrong, the figure is 10 times this! – Never forget these ppl are miners, so it is perhaps the most complex underground system in this whole universe. On the surface every building and bridge is dust so what? From the first day, all their planners know there is only one recourse a defensive war with attrition being the main phalanx of the strategy – so what if our pincers have encircled 40 divisions, from what I am able to see these are the lowest quality troops, so where may I ask are their first divisions? So what if we reduce every street, block and alley into rubble and burn it till it become glass? Have we forgotten there are beneath it all? We must not allow our initial successes to buoy us to the point where we become so detached and drunk that we are completely unhinged from reality – that’s a good as throwing the cusp to the wind. I know most of you who are less experienced are expecting all this to be over bfr Xmass, you may leave our ranks. I do not need amatuers, I need men who know what is expected from them – so it is best, if you go now. As that has alway remained an illusion. Bear in mind, we are up against General Chuiko and his planners. I fought against him in the Ascension Wars and I can think of no other more brilliant strategist who is more eminently qualified to fashion a defensive plan / sending our heavy armor into Proyonkha will be certain death akin to this. So lets get real:

    I want you to watch it again and again and again, till you can memorize every single clip and narrate it even when you are all asleep backwards and forwards all 12 episodes of it – this is why, we cannot move into Proyonkha .We need take up a perimeter defensive position on the high ground SSW at sector 9430/098 and prepare for the onset of an approaching winter – I have discussed this matter with all the section commanders in the Arrulian front and they will brief the unit commanders – priority would be to establish a logistical chain along the two pincers that we have closed and to maintain linkages with our supply chain. If we do not manage this linkage well, we dont stand a chance for the prosecution of a long battle.

    Now you all know this is just the beginning of a very long battle, but what did you really expect? A walk in the park?”

    [From The Interspacing Legation / Message received at 472.92 / Transmitted somewhere 200 parsec from the declared exclusion zone at the out skirts of Planet D’ni.

    [First sentence lost] protest under the strongest terms, the declaration of an exclusion zone is clearly in breach of the Marramollian Treaty.

    We have sent our diplomats to make a case in the Legation to protest your unwarranted provocation.

    We demand that you, the brotherhood provide us an escort and guarantee the passage of our vessels – the ‘Nostromo’ and ‘Liberati’ are at location 602/85. The Legation is demanding that you allow independent observers to oversee the invasion of the D’ni theatre of operations.]

    END

  14. KOHO said

    [From The Space Station Dimitri – command center 16 / EPAC]

    [At 72.98 / two medium sized ion vessels were destroyed after straying into the exclusion zone / despite repeated attempts to turn them back, these warnings were ignored / @ 920.82
    Sard-Khan divisions were ordered to torpedo the Scientific vessel “Nostromo” and the hospital vessel, “The Liberati.”

    Nearly 8 attempts were made to hail these vessels to no avail / @ 920.88, they were destroyed – there are no survivors END]

  15. Astro Boy said

    KOHO who was the idiot that gave the order to shot down a hospital vessel? I cannot believe the continental team that took over the Pacific shift fucked up so badly! Do you have any idea what sort of explaining I will have to do with the Legation???????????????? I want the full transcript of the com – pls send it to me now!

  16. Atomic Monkey said

    Calm down. I have reviewed the vid-sat / 8 attempts were made to hail the ‘Liberati.’ On at least 4 occasions, tracers were fired broad side as warning shots to advise them to turn back: THESE WARNINGS WERE NOT HEEDED! THEIR NAVIGATION LIGHTS WERE OFF / IF THEY WERE REALLY CIVILIAN VESSELS WHY WERE DID THEY ASSUME COMBAT MODE?

    @ 89.09, Both the Dimitri and the Sentinel, registered that the vessel claimed to be the “Liberati” had powered up their shields and prepared for full weaponization of Plasma canons.

    What did you really expect us all to do?

  17. Darkness said

    OK lets not waste time trying to deal with spilled milk issues – what’s done is done and cannot be undone. No matter how right we are to take out a hospital space vessel, that will not cut one molecule of ice with the Legation and Federation. It just goes a long way to confirm their opinion that we are a bunch of thugs.

    Ask Vollariane and his Memphisto to send a diplomatic team to the Legation / they will know what to do – it is only a matter of time bfr the Legation and confederation will impose sanctions on our Trade Guilds.

    Gentlemen we have lost the PR war today. I fear this means while we may win every battle, we will still lose the war – Bc the real war is in the hearts and minds.

  18. Darkness said

    Listen carefully to me. This was all pre-planned, no one in their right mind will order a hospital space vessel into an exclusion zone – they gambled that we will overeact and they gambled right, we lose, they win. It was brilliantly planned executed with precision and design to put pressure on us on the diplomatic front. We were just too dumb to see it.

    This puts us in an untenable position, many of our European Allies don’t want beef with the Legation / sanctions will come along with the cancellation of landing rights / ask Vollariane to send a diplomatic team to the Legation stall for time.

    This changes everything, we can no longer use time as a weapon – prepare for war.

    Darkness,

    We should at least try to make an effort to inform the Legation that it was an innocent mistake. I believe we have a chance of convincing some of them.

  20. scholarboy said

    I really don’t understand how such a series of coincidences could have happened. Why didn’t weren’t their lights on? How did they manage to get so deep in without being detected? There was a 15 min delay in the vid-com, I believe it could be a new type of warping tech that was used to insert the craft within the ex zone.

  21. Darkness said

    Listen here, I do not have time to negotiate with any of you – this is not a matter who is right or wrong, that counts for squat. All I know is this time tmr, everyone in the gaming network is just to have one thing in their heads, the brotherhood downed a hospital vessel, that is all they are going to remember. This is a case of a man caught with his pants down, the rest is just academic – do you understand me?

    So if you talking abt the truth, I say fuck it, the truth is what they think and I rather rule in hell than be ruled in heaven.

    Gentlemen we are in the shit hole, so you can all stand there and play 20 questions with me or you can help with bury the stiff in our living room – listen carefully to me, I want you AB and SB to go with Atomic Chimp get the rest of scholars to calculate how long I have to do my thing here in D’ni – I need the whole line up fuel projections, logistics right down to how long I can fight it out here without running out of bullets, get 3 teams to work round the clock on this, I need it tmr – get Vollariane to go down to the Legation and stall those mothers, promise them anything, tell them anything they want to hear, just buy me 48 hrs- we are going in this is the real one, there are no turnings after this point, we bite, suck it in and just go with the flow, thats as good as it gets.

    Do you understand me?

    Good.
