What does a space pilot, sitting alone in the cockpit of his Cobra, lightyears away from all civilisation, floating in front of a remote star, waiting for the results of his scanner, do?

 

Using Logical Interpretation and Definitional Equivalence to compare Classical Kinematics and Special Relativity Theory

 

Well, he writes a PhD dissertation about theories on space and time, of course...

One of our Elders received a message concerning a group of tribe brothers and sisters living as slaves under the most dire circumstances in the Empire. So I set out to the very heart of the Empire to investigate.

Since my Cobra Dancing Groigan is a highly prolific ship which is well known to Imperial security agents, I stowed it at Shinrarta Dezhra and journeyed on using an unmarked Viper.

 


To further obscure my trail, I sold the viper for scrap at Lyulka Beacon, where my contacts had arranged an Imperial Eagle waiting for me. With this ship, I can safely move through Empire space without attracting much attention.

 

I cruised to Achenar, the Imperial capital, withour being noticed. Posing as a historian I consulted the slave trade archives and discovered that this particular group of slaves was once owned by patron Archimedes Zarch, who was forced to illegally sell all his tribal slaves to a party outside of the Empire in order to avoid bankruptcy. There is something fishy about thism why would he take the risk to sell them on the black market, rather than just selling them on the open Imperial market? Some of the documents at the archives were heavily redacted and censored. What was even more worrying is that when trying access a copy of a particular form, the archivist said that he had to report all requests for that document to the Counter-intelligence Office. Fortunately, corruption as always runs wild in the Empire, and I could bribe the archivist to delay reporting until after I had left the system.

Anyway, I have found a lead, which will bring me to (of all places!) Riedquat.

We regret to inform you that the Komodo Collective has been dissolved.

 

We today received a message from Commander Fremen stating that The Relentless has closed their forum.

The Relentless was one of the earliest player organizations in the galaxy, and during the Beta & Gamma phases it was one of the largest & most active among Elite: Dangerous player groups.

Some former Relentless members have now joined the Balkan Intergalactic Guerilla and other pirate groups.

 

We also received a message from Commander Blatant informing us that the Galactic Intelligence Agency has been dismantled, some former agents of the GIA now work as private contractors:

"On December 16th 3300 the GIA was commissioned to carry out discreet assassinations of key targets, thought to be moles in the federation. I'm sure you've got the jist from the Galnet archives but what I want to tell you is we were set up! We in fact carried out assassination's for a Empirical mole's, needlessly ending the careers of many key federal government figures. Worse still this turned out to be a devious plot to steal a large amount of Federal assets and information.

The moles promptly disappeared and left us in the firing line, not knowing we had been set up Federal Security turned on the GIA and much blood and hydrogen fuel was spilt across the galaxy, many GIA members where killed, some where arrested and imprisoned without trial. I myself and my loyal-est directors were held to a secret military trial on Sol. The trial was a sham, no evidence, no witnesses, they literally, LITERALLY bagged as, threw us in a hauler and shipped us to some anarchic prison colony (I once heard someone call it Rura Penthe, but to this day I have no idea where we ended up).

Fortunately, as our government handlers were all moles and had promptly disappeared no one knew just how 'resourceful' we could be. We made a daring escape and promptly disappeared into deepest space (we're currently somewhere on the HIP 80364 side of the galactic centre). where we've been hiding out ever since (helped by some supply of Indi Bourbon I happen to have). We have since discovered we still have friends out there, and most surprisingly we have reconciled with some of our former adversaries, united by a common enemy. Our exploits during the height of the GIA have not gone un-noticed either, and we have contented ourselves fighting the bigger evil of the galaxy and helping those who need it."

 

The Winged Cobra Tribe and the Na'Ama Wing both remain active as independent organizations.

Former members of The Relentless and the GIA who want to stay in touch are kindly invited to register at the Winged Cobra Tribe forum.

 

We had a lot of fun together and we hope to meet you again in the galaxy.

I was hunting for Relentless pirates at Ross 490, but Cmdr Fremen ambushed me, forced me to flee and sent this video to taunt us:

Fremen currently has a bounty on his head of 2 million credits, and he is currently trying to max it out at Ross 390. Other pirates of the Relentless with similar bounties may hang around at the navigation beacon or the extraction fields of the same system.

We continue to hunt them.

Blue Orchid Network joins the Komodo Collective

Smugglers, Bootleggers, Free Booters, Claim Jumpers, and Blockade Runners

 

The Blue Orchid Network was created to add stability and support to the otherwise support-less job of running contraband, illegal mining, illegal salvage, and economic crimes in general. Started by Commander Marik Alhazred, the Blue Orchid Network works closely with pirates, mercenaries, and other Commanders in similar fields, to create a spider web of support across the system. The Network recruits Commanders that prefer to stick to trade and economics, and security is handled by mercenaries and pirates for hire. They primarily offer their services as "smugglers-for-hire." Supplying pirates, and bandits with ample cargo space, and an even cut of the profits.

They are usually hanging out at the Sapphire Lotus in Wohler Terminal, Kremainn.

"Netcode Frenzy", also called the "Peace Summit" and "Farewell Beta" on Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 November 3300.

 

How many ships can we get into one players instance? And how many fit in a space station's letterbox?

 

Let's be good Beta Testers for one last time and give that "additional telemetry to investigate some network issues" which was added in Beta 3.05 something to chew on!

 

All are welcome. No PvP, except for mutually consensual dueling. This is an OoC event, but RP is allowed.

In co-operation with the Galactic Intelligence Agency and The Relentless.

The Eye of the Cobra
a.k.a.
Operation: Asteroid Ambush

 

Scoreboard

GIA & WiCoT: 2

The Relentless: 1

 


On Saturday the space weather was too rough to risk the exchange of The Eye of the Cobra against the bio-weapons for the Galactic Intelligence Agency.

On Sunday, the flux was less devastating, and we met with GIA between the asteroids near Beagle 2. To our surprize, we got ambushed by The Relentless.

In the first round, Cmdr Fremen rammed into Cmdr Old Boar and got killed instantly, and Cmdr Blatant has demolished the cannister with the virus, but Cmdr Old Boar did manage to pick up the Eye of the Cobra and get away with it.

On the second run Cmdr Fremen would have been killed if Cmdr Blatant didn't stop shooting, and the exchange between GIA and WiCoT went well.

In the last round the Eye of the Cobra was lost, but Cmdr Blatant did pick up the container with the lethal virus. Cmdr Fremen managed to make him flee though, and then started to attack Cmdr Old Boar. Cmdr Fremen stopped shooting Cmdr Old Boar when he had 9% hull. Cmdr Blatant then returned and killed Cmdr Fremen.

The efforts of the Na'Ama Wing to join us have been noted and appreciated. Unfortunately, due to technical problems outside their control & responsability in combination with the above mentioned space weather, they were unable to reach us. We communicated through the event, and we hope to fly together soon.

Thanks to all who participated in the event or in the preparation of it: Cmdr Blatant, Cmdr Fremen, Cmdr Musashi, Cmdr Xizor, Cmdr Darius Torkalar & Cmdr Malcolm Washburne and everybody who participated in the different forum discussions (where we got very valuable input).

 (( On "space weather", "flux" & technical problems: The event was fun, but also frustrating.
Goodbye, Beta 2: you will be remembered as the most beautiful bag of bugs I have ever seen. ))
 
Pictures of the event have been posted at the Forum.

Roleplaying PvP Event

with The Relentless

and the Galactic Intelligence Agency

 The Eye of the Cobra

Saturday 25 - Sunday 26 October 3300

 

The Galactic Intelligence Agency (GIA) seems to have found our long lost artifact "The Eye of the Cobra".


We are organizing an exchange at a quiet spot in deep space: we get the Eye of the Cobra in exchange for bio weapons we stumbled upon.

We however have to be careful: pirates may be interested in both the artifact and the weapons.

So, keep this exchange top secret, we would not want anything to go wrong!


To The Relentless, this event is known as "Operation: Asteroid Ambush"

The Winged Cobra Tribe was contacted by the Galactic Intelligence Agency to help them hunt The Relentless, an infamous gang of pirates. Since we will need friends in our war against the Empire, we have accepted to help the Feds in this matter.

On September 27th 3300, the tribe was hunting for the pirates, but they kept evading us.

On September 28th 3300, we finally intercepted them at LP 98-132. The pirates however managed to chase us away, and Old Boar's Cobra was destroyed by the relentless Cmdr Fremen.

We however have a distinct feeling that we will meet those villains again.

The "Winged Cobra Tribe" [WiCoT - pronounced as "Wi-koh-tee"] is a roleplaying PvP nomadic spacefaring tribe.

 

We welcome mature role players as members of the tribe. We have a Mumble server for team chat.

 

We take gaming seriously, however we do understand that other things may have priority over playing Elite: Dangerous. We have a slogan to express that: "Real Life First." Our players decide themselves how much or how little they can or want to play.

 

While we are hostile to the Empire, pirates and slave traders in-character, we fully appreciate the players behind them, as they make the game more interesting. If you consider us a foe, feel free to attack us - or to invite us for scheduled fighting events.

 

We are friendly or neutral to all others. We are no griefers: if you don't want to participate to PvP, just tell us.

 

Ambassadors of friendly or hostile groups/organizations/guilds/tribes/fleets are kindly invited to contact us.

 

Interested to join us? You can apply here.

 

When we meet in-game, we would appreciate it very much if you communicate to us in-character as a spaceship commander - you will probably enjoy it.

We of course cannot enforce this, just know that we will be roleplaying the encounter at our side.
