To: Ethereal Dawn,
As many of you know, we have been working very hard with our allies CO2 and INIT to fight and defend Impass. Tonight we suffered a setback in 68FT and very soon we will be fighting to defend a number of systems and the stations when the final reinforce timers are up. We have fought continuously as an alliance for over 60 days with our deployment to Impass and we will continue to fight this war.
Effective immediately ED members will need to begin repositioning our assets to allow for safety. Major assets such as Dreads, Carriers, and JF's should immediately be moved into AOK station in CATCH. This station system is the first Catch station outside Impass and will allow us to deploy back into Impass in support of CO2 and INIT. All combat pilots should relocate the bulk of your ships and modules in AOK as well. All combat pilots are welcome to place a ship in the NX pos in DDI as well to allow for quickly responding to situations in Impass. ALL INDUSTRIAL ASSETS AND MINING VESSELS SHOULD BE EVACED BACK TO SAFETY IN EMPIRE.
NX will be establishing a POS in AOK to serve as a cyno point for logistics. I will be moving any members ships to AOK who needs them transported. ALL CARRIERS PILOTS SHOULD BEGIN HELPING THE MEMBERS IN THEIR CORPS AND ALLIANCE TO GET MOVED OUT OF 68FT TO AOK STATION. ANY CAP PILOTS THAT NEEDS CYNOS SHOULD SPEAK WITH MAXX WOLF, HOLICK, PALLIS ATHENE, OR MYSELF. ANY PILOT HELPING TO MOVE OUR MEMBERS TO AOK CAN GET HELP WITH FUEL BY REQUESTING IT FROM RAGELLE.
Holick, Securitas, and I spoke with the leadership for CO2 and INIT tonight. We affirmed our commitment to continue fighting. All our allies are aware of the long effort that has been put forth and appreciate what we have done these last months. The current situation is certainly difficult, but we have never quit and will not quit now. We are currently in discussions about our options --- we know that many of you need a rest and the oppurtunity to restock your wallets and your ships. We will have further announcements about the war later. At the moment our concentration must be focused on securing our alliance in AOK.
Everyone should understand that we intend to continue to hold and defend our upgraded system E7. ALL MINING ACTIVITY SHOULD CEASE BUT YOU CAN CONTINUE TO RAT THIS SYSTEM.
I personally want to express my gratitude for the chance to fly with all of you the last couple of months. We have done a significant amount of work together. This alliance has an old name but we are new to this experience. We have learned a great deal about how to fight and how to survive in 0.0. The hard work and effort this alliance has performed will stand us in good stead going forward. There are a great many of you that have x'ed up into fleets and performed above expectations and I am proud to be a part of your efforts.
