Machariel ALOD: Bling and Blunts

During the day, I was contacted by a freighter pilot, who had accepted a scam courier contract. He had tried to make the best of it, and timed his jump into the destination system near server downtime.

As anticipated. the Machariel Bumper was waiting for him on the other side of the gate and began bumping him. DT arrived and he was logged off safely before the gank fleet could arrive.

It was at that time he searched for help.

I gathered the system info, Machariel bumper info, freighter pilot name, and I contacted  Jennifer en Marland and requested her assistance in getting a fleet together to be staged in the Eitu system.

A rough plan was made, and put into action.

As expected, the freighter logged on, landed back on the gate and was immediately aggressed by a cheap scout, to prevent him from logging off again ,..

22:22:59    Notify    Caldari Citizen 34526534: You have foolishly engaged in criminal activity within sight of sentry guns and must suffer the consequences.
22:22:59    Notify    Caldari Citizen 34526534, criminals are not welcome here. Leave now or be destroyed.

... and the Machariel pilot decloaked and began bumping.

And as Newton's Third Law states -for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction- our fleet commands rang out.

22:25:12    Notify    Jennifer en Marland, criminals are not welcome here. Leave now or be destroyed.
22:25:16    Notify    Syn White, criminals are not welcome here. Leave now or be destroyed.
22:25:21    Notify    Eden Jayne Quiggins, criminals are not welcome here. Leave now or be destroyed.
22:25:27    Notify    Alexander Kaan, criminals are not welcome here. Leave now or be destroyed.
22:25:33    Notify    Slania Auduin, criminals are not welcome here. Leave now or be destroyed.

He was "inhaling", when he fitted this ship

Weed was trying to hold the smoke in, and could only utter a single sound ...

Just nod. We understand.

To date, this is perhaps the most expensive Machariel AG/HSM has brought to Justice .

The freighter warped away, docked up, and completed the scam courier contract.

Jita >> Eitu (1001580 m³) (Courier)   
"No Choco, thank you!!"

I promised Jen that the Mach Bounty would be doubled on Weed Probe for this operation,
and coupled with a generous donation by our very thankful freighter pilot
everyone received 300M payment for their dedication and sacrifice, heeding the call of duty
in their rescue of a fellow space traveler in desperate need.

Oh.  And CONCORD also thanked everyone as well.

2017.05.23 22:25:38    Bounty Prize    31,847,052 ISK    ... ISK    Thomas en Chasteaux got bounty prize for killing Weed Probe

Congratulations on a flawless and well executed rescue!

And thank each and every one of you for making High Sec Space a better place!

War Stories: House of Salt

Hell House is a gank corp based out of Juunigaishi.  The Militia has been working to increase their failure rate, and they grew a bit salty about that.

So they WarDecced our Black Ops Corp, The Inglourious Bastards.

It didn't go well for them.

House of NaCl

Unfortunately the war ended, but the House kept burning...

Angels turn to pure salt when they die

Looter ALOD: The White Whale

The corp Save the Whales. had just ganked a Charon in Madirmilire, aided by their Machariel Bumper Grayson Gray and their assistant looter Silver Scarlett Scandles who flys a  Celestis.

Their freighter looter, Rebeka Athonille, swooped in for what she thought was a routine pick up.

But as it turned out, there were others hunting whales in the sea of Madirmilire, and she felt the barbs of more than a few harpoons sink deep.

Days later, she was harvested for the oil lamps of Justice once more.

Militia Milestones - 100

Recently, a capsuleer discovered the secret of the EVE Gate, and decided to leave New Eden and explore the galaxy beyond that ancient gate.  Nearly 37 Billion in assets were bequeathed to the High Sec Militia as his last will and testament.

In the process of selling these assets, the HSM has crossed a major milestone - over 100 Billion in ISK has been donated to the Militia over these years of operation. The grand total stands at 124 Billion today.

This does not include the Tens of Billions that have been donated and kept as assets.

It is because of Volunteers and Supporters that the light of Hope and Justice continues to burn bright in this cluster that we all call home.

And to the brave capsuleer who unlocked the EVE Gate secrets and ventures on his journey toward our ancestral home, the 150 ranking militia members, the 173 enlistees, and 57 Donors salute you and wish you a safe journey.

Fly Safe
-Thomas en Chasteaux

Bumper ALOD: Nice Things

A Machariel bumper was spotted far off the Sivala gate in Uedama, sitting still. The militia kept a wary eye on him, as he sat there.

As the pilot seemed all too complacent, some calls were made and a Black Ops Team was assembled. Meanwhile, a cloaked warp in was put into position.

Criminals and their bumper accomplices are one of the reasons New Eden capsuleers cannot keep their nice things.

Berry Nice thought he found a safe place to park and go AFK.  Instead, he found that the river of fate suddenly overflowed its banks, and swept him downstream to the roaring falls of Justice.

Bumper ALOD: Silver Linings

One of our Black Ops members found a Machariel fit for criminal acts.  Thankfully, they found the silver lining in that criminal space cloud, and collected a handsome bounty.

The bumper Sil Ver had hoped exploding freighters would rain ISK down upon his head.
Instead, he found a hailstorm of Justice.

Ganker Scout ALOD: Downward Slope

The criminal scout Slope Codie was scanning ships and cargo at the Kamio gate in the Kaaputenen system.  Justice arrived, and things went downhill for Codie from there.
