Executors Logs: So long and thanks for all the fish
"Its important for context to understand that this war would forever change the landscape of New Eden more than any other from the perspective of SMA".
At this time we are considered 'tributes' of Mostly Harmless but tensions over the Vanguard alliance scenario is not making us allot of friends in Mostly Harmless leadership. The scale of what was now happening with this war is heard through the tone of desperation during NC alliance war room meetings. These meetings are only for full members of the Northern Coalition. We were the only Tribute alliances there. We had flushed out the corrupt efforts of Mostly Harmless via Vanguard to extort and profiteer their own tributes. We had also found out that SMA fleet numbers where being counted as Mostly Harmless participation..This had pissed off allot of people who realized that SMA was propping up Mostly Harmless at a fraction of their size. We were brought into the command channels for "direct communication" but I could tell it was more of a jab at MH leadership.
What ever the reason it is exiting to be brought into these conversations even if it was 100% apparent that we were on the loosing side of this war. We also still did not have access to 98% of the stations or resources as the full members did. None the less we still felt as an alliance that we are part of something bigger than our selves. At least while it last.
Something smells like bullshit. While we send people to NC fleets to the East we are now also fighting the new NC. out of NPC Pure Blind daily. They take our Tech moons and we take them back. The difference is that it's an all out struggle to the death for us and NC. seems to only be toying with us. Yesterday one of our guys tackled an NC. Dram on a gate only to have two mother ships (supper carriers) dropped on him. All to kill a fucking cruiser? When I called out the leader of NC. in local for it he was a condescending smug asshole over it. I told our members on TS jokingly that from this day forward let it be known that Vince Draken is a cunt. The guys started spamming it in local I just hope that it doesn't get them into to much trouble. An NC. pilot responded in local with "EX River must hate us" and now "EX River hates you" has also been added to local spam... At least our members are having some fun with it. This has been a long war and I think the only thing keeping us in it, is our fleet participation in the NC fleets. The struggle has started to take its toll and now for the first time we had to request help from the NC to retake one of our moons. This was because more than NC. have started showing up in the fights. We were told the NC cant help you. When I asked why I was told by NC fleet Command that we live to close to the enemy... A few minutes later I was asked how many I would be sending to the next NC CTA to save a Morsus Mihi moon. Like I said, bullshit.
There was allot of back and forth today in command channels about another alliance that was coming to our aid. I asked who this Goon Swarm Federation was and was laughed at for not knowing. Apparently we had arrived to the nul sec seen right after the end of what they called the Great War. The war against Band of Brothers. (BOB). It was supposed to have been a big deal and was behind the creation of the Northern Coalition in the first place. I felt pretty out of place and quickly realized that I had allot of catching up to do. Not everybody was happy that GSF was coming to help and there seemed to be a lot of distrust. The only problem I was having was that the people displaying the distrust were also the people that I think are corrupt as shit. Apparently the NC and the GSF were sworn brothers of war but Goons had previous pacts with the Russian groups in the DRF that had up to this point kept them out of the fight. Honor in space is not something that I have encountered much outside of my own alliance.. This makes me exited to meet our new allies.
The blood in the water has more than the DRF looking to feed off of this conflict. Pandemic Legion a nomadic mercenary alliance was now on contract against the NC and this month has been a shit show of losses. But today was special.. The following was sent to me via eve mail.
As of 23th december all venal tech moons are owned by Pandemic Legion.
70 tech moons producing 90b isk a week.
All alliances but the original Goonfleet will be hunted down and killed if entering Pandemic Legion’s region.
For renter agreements and buying the tech moons contact Pandemic Legion.

This is something that I cant even wrap my head around. This is just one region out of many that the NC was controlling. 90 billion in isk a week.. Were is this money? Why are members of the NC scraping the bottom of the barrel just trying to stay in the fight? It is also a well known fact that the NC has been building Titans and Mother ships the whole time they have been in the north. So where are they? If the NC has been building these god dammed things than why does it seem that the only people that have them are enemies. This is a problem for me. SMA has been bleeding to save these Isk farms and Titan factories for months.. I think it might be time to focus on SMA. I ordered SMA members to not go to Venal and to focus on retaking and holding our own assets. Its not like I need to worry about the NC coming to kick us out. Remember we live to close to the enemy..
The war with the DRF looks different to us but is none the less crushing. This weeks events have me still in shock. We were contacted by the GSF sky marshal. We were asked if we would be willing to give up two of our systems in order to bring Test alliance into the fight. Instead of going to the NC war room I listened to the proposal about a Jump bridge connection between Pure Blind and Cloud Ring my self. The difference between talking to NC leadership and GSF was night and day. There was respect and acknowledgment that SMA has bleed for what they were asking us to sacrifice. We spoke in great length with Rydis and and Vile Rat the GSF Sky Marshal and diplomatic leader within their ranks. Rydis explained that they had been watching us and wanted to deal with us directly. After a quick chat we have agreed to give both 6GWE-A and J-OK0C and in exchange they would help help us where they could.
Shortly after the systems were exchanged we were contacted by Mostly Harmless leadership demanding that we give them all of our moons and systems and leave. I told them that if they want them to come and get them. I also informed them that any aggression against SMA would be a forfeit their moons and space in Fade as well. That was two days ago.. Today we learned that MH leadership stole all their alliance assets and dropped corp. Apparently I was right about that whole corruption thing. As of today SMA space is SMA space. This KQ pocket is ours and we will share it with whoever the hell we want. As for the fate of the NC .. I'm not sure how much longer our new neighbors are going to fight to keep them alive. On a side note 200+ GSF and Test jumped into KDV today and helped save our Tech Moon. For some reason NC. didn't bother showing up.
