SMA Lore: Monkeys & Angels -Chapter 1

Executors Logs: Our push into KDV-DE

2009-12-20  

The recent events have left us racing to catch our breath. Months of planning and theory crafting could not have predicted that the Northern Coalition would let some Low sec pirates throw a wrench in our shit. Sirius Cybernetics Was a member of Mostly Harmless after all. These were supposed to be members of one of the most feared coalitions in New Eden.. Yet days before our invasion of the K-QUVW constellation in Pure Blind It appears that two other groups have already pushed in on our target. And yet I see an opportunity in disguise. I will send a diplomat to speak with Sirius Cybernetics and offer our services in their defense. After all it's not like they knew that we were originally coming for them. We will recapture the space on their behalf and then keep it. If they can not keep some low life pirates from claiming what is theirs then they do need to have it after all. In the end It will be much easier to take it from the few then to pry it from the hands of the many.

Success! Our diplomats have found both good and bad news. The bad news is that it turns out that the task of liberating the area from Yggdrasill. Was already tasked to Vanguard. Alliance. The good news is that they are fantastically terrible and we have been given a “Tribute” status in the NC. We now have a  green light to step in. The line members have started referring to Vanguard. pilots as “Unicorns”. Because seeing one is a rare and magical occurrence. They were tasked with retaking KDV-DE from Yggdrasill. And it has taken them the better part of a month. We held back just enough to let them trip and fall on their faces a few times before assisting them with the TCU kill. However, even after we killed the TCU they managed to botch dropping their own and Red Army Alliance swooped in to take advantage of the fuck up. This mistake has changed everything!

The Red Army Alliance’s appearance brought a lot of the wrong kind of attention to the area. The sharks have begun to smell blood in the water.  The fights have become bigger than we could have ever expected. Rumor has it that Mostly Harmless has begun to take a lot of flak from Northern Coalition leadership and they have been taking us to task. The leader of Vanguard. Has been too quick to play his hand though. He went behind Mostly Harmless leadership today and asked for NC intervention directly. He tried to throw SMA under the bus but it was too late. Killboards don't lie after all and many members of other alliances within the NC had already heard the whispers about their “Unicorns” reputation. Our vengeance for their efforts will be swift. But not yet.. Not yet.

As a Tribute Alliance to Mostly Harmless SMA has been granted a system to call our own. Quite an empty gesture as UC3H-Y is now controlled by the IAC. There were conditions though. We had a deadline. If we did not take the system soon then the NC was going to deploy to the area to push us and the hostiles out. The problem was that the IAC had dropped two high resist large POS in UC3 to stage out of. Each with a pile of guns. But we have come up with a clever little plan. I am calling it Ghosting. We have even created a fleet doctrine for the tactic called ghost fleet. If it works it will let 20 or 30 of us take down what normally would take a capital fleet. We are going to need a lot of bombs. If we can just reinforce those towers IAC will not have the ability to reship or resupply during engagements. This will let us push on the TCU. I just hope we have enough people to pull it off.

It fucking worked! Those lazy fucks had placed all of their defenses in a big group at the top of the POS and bombing them out of commission only took 30 min on each tower! After the guns were down we were able to reinforce both towers with torpedoes. During the operation we even made a new ally. Mordus Angels live in the NPC space in Pure Blind and had offered their assistance in taking down the TCU. It was going to be close but at the last minute the locals flooded with Mostly Harmless Battle Cruisers! It seems they finally decided to actually show up. Apparently one of their FCs had defied an order and came in with an assist. Why would they have issued an order to let their space stay in hostile hands? Something's not right in Mostly Harmless leadership. It seems that their line knows it too.

It’s been two months and SMA has managed to hold on to UC3. During this time the fighting in K-QUVW has settled to skirmishes over the handful of rare moons in the area. The primary group in RED.OverLord Doom. has spearheaded most of these engagements. War is about to break out in the East and it would appear that we were all going to be conscripted. Every NC alliance and their Tributes are to supply Battleships and pilots to an all out bloodbath that ultimately we are losing. Every alliance was to offer ship replacement to their members during the war. Having no access to rare moon money SMA would have to build her ship hulls. But betrayal has struck! While moving freight through a local Jump bridge network our once friends Mordus Angels have back stabbed SMA and destroyed a crucial shipment of resources needed to resupply SMA’s eastern war efforts.

The leadership of Vanguard. Wasted no time in running to NC leadership with news claiming that SMA could not meet its commitments. Only this would be the last time that they crossed us. You see When asked why SMA did not have moon rights in their own systems Mostly Harmless told them that they had given moon right to Vangaurd instead and that Mostly Harmless was “holding” those moons for them. Besides the fact that “Holding” the moons for them was corrupt as shit especially during the war NC leadership took notice that Vangaurd. Was not in the current CTA fleet. When confronted the Vangaurd. Leader confessed that they were in Fade ratting in Mostly Harmless space because they couldn't afford ships..

I private messaged the leader of the NC told him SMA was leaving the CTA fleet to fucking burn Vangaurd out. He replied a minute later with “Make sure you are back for the next fleet”.

I later confronted Gen EVE Leader of Mordus Angels. He lied and brushed off the attack. Asked for the standings to be set back to +5. Reluctantly we agreed. A short time later a second freighter was lost on the same Jump Bridge. This time it was empty. Pure Blind once saw  Monkeys and Angels flying together. No more and just like the now burning Vangaurd. their days are numbered.
