Initial warning

Idly brushing my hair, my mind running through fleet compositions and tactics as I look at the screen sat in front of me. Possible targets for highsec wars scrolling past. I close my eyes picking through the training and abilities of each Corp member when a loud laugh interrupts the train of thought. I sigh and look over at Mei, “would you mind being quiet, I’m trying to do your job.”

“Never mind that, look,” she says, the display on my screen changing to a mail message:

Initial Warning
From: Lizzy Thelcar
Sent: 2010.10.08 22:08
To: Mei Starkiller,

To whom it may concern,

You are receiving this communication as an official warning. Your corporation has been selected as potential targets for war by one of our sister corporations. Corporations like yours are identified through scouting, kill boards, forums and in-game chats.

For obvious reasons, there are no official ties between this corporation and our sister corporations, but rest assured the threat is very real.

This warning is meant to offer a means of permanently removing your corporation from our potential target list. A one-time payment of 100,000,000.00 (one hundred million) ISK will permanently remove your corporation from our list. Simply send the ISK to The Istari with your corporation’s ticker name as the reason.

Should you decide to ignore this message, you will eventually receive a declaration of war by one of our sister corporations, at which point diplomatic negotiations will become more strenuous, but not impossible.

You will have at least one full week after the initial warning before the declaration of war, so it would be recommended that you do some research and speak to your members and reach a decision together.

The Istari

I blink, staring at the message. The audacity of some people astounds me.

Pulling up the Corporate and public pilot information, “I hope this isn’t your idea of a joke, Mei.” A single member Corp, the pilot only a few months old. I look over to Mei as she composes a reply then realise this fool was serious.

Maybe it’s an idle threat and we’ll hear nothing more – maybe it’s someone so weak and pathetic that they’re going through a third-party with threats. Either way, Mei and myself do not take kindly to threats. If it’s a serious threat, come forward you cowardly offspring of a fedo so we know whom to direct our aggression. May the Gods have mercy upon your soul for the Clan Kielle shall reap vengeance upon thee the like thou hath never before know.

Dos Tu Mai ‘Dossie’ Kielle.
