The Network

This is request to all active clones for help.

over the last few days I'm sure you have all been hearing reports of strange happenings, contacts going dark, normally friend agents refusing to do business, normally savy clones dropping millions on the market place arming themselves to the teeth for no reason.

and in more than one case easy missions suddenly being filled with kill teams who seem to have perfect understanding of clone warfare.

It is with developments in mind I wish to establish a network whose so goal it is to ensure the safety of trusted clones by evacuating them outside of empire and concord space to safe houses across null or wormhole space.

The development of long lasting clone bodies to remove the need and danger of our minds being captured in transit

and to establish our own network are minds can float on outside of concord control to truly become independent of empire control


all Clones interested in this "Network" please respond here and we can start working out how to do this.



(OCC one last hurrah for any RPs left and want to setup a character exit when the game closes down)

It certainly feels like someone's trying to finish us all off again... names I haven't seen in months or years suddenly popping up all over the place, brutal coordinated attacks on mercs in the field, deploying ludicrous amounts of firepower and assets for a minor battle with a payout worth a fraction of the value of their weapons.

CONCORD and the empires may have looked the other way for a time after our little uprising but we may have pushed our luck too far, playing at being warlords fighting over backwater systems. It's turned into something of an embarrassment for them. Some of my contacts are saying the empires are spooked about yet another group of immortals - piloting starfighters this time apparently - coming into play, and they might be trying to clamp down on all of this "illegal" clone activity in a last desperate attempt to hold onto their old power.

And on the other hand, I've been hearing rumors of some kind of "next generation" clone soldiers going around and wiping out their old competition, us, with superhuman reflexes and impossibly precise aim. Battles get shut out by an unstoppable squad of them, then they somehow trace the signal back to your warbarge and board it, in order to... well, that would explain the mercs stockpiling the best weapons on the market in their barge, could be handy. I know it all sounds like a myth, the kind of thing told to the rookie mercs to scare em like all those bloody "514" horror stories they used to tell me, but with those "drifters" the eggers are dealing with suddenly appearing I would believe in just about anything these days.

Either way, nothing about whats happening feels right, and I don't want to be in the way when the hammer falls.

So speaking of eggers, I've gotten in contact with a capsuleer buddy of mine who has been tinkering with cloning tech, same guy who helped me evade the earlier empire purges. He's been helping me move my warbarge deeper into space, setting up some extra communications relays for me to bounce off and hopefully make me harder to find. But in case all that fails... I've got an ugly back-up plan. Backups, that is. Of my mind. Got a couple safehouses of my own setup, and with the help of a little neurosurgery don't even remember the locations of them. Got them set on a sort of "dead man's switch." If something happens to me, if I disappear completely or I'm not... myself... hopefully they'll activate in a few weeks or months.

Now I know what you're thinking, all those reports about how dangerous and illegal it is to have multiple conscious clones, and how unstable "backups" are, but I want to reassure you they are all completely true. If it comes to that, the backups sure as hell aren't going to be up to date and might have a spot or two of brain damage, but hopefully will have enough sense to asses whatever situation they find themselves in and wait for things to settle down. Hey, it beats fading away.

I'll chip in what I can for this "Network" of yours, as it sounds like a better plan than mine, but still I advise you all to start thinking up backup plans for your backup plans. If any of you know eggers you can trust, try to work out something with them, they've been at this game a lot longer than any of us and know how to hide things right under the nose of the Empires.

Don't trust them too much of course, we all know some eggers that would rather keep the concept of immortality all to themselves, and are afraid of what we might do to them if we get enough power.

thank you, from what I'm hearing from various places everyone has enough recourses to setup their own Evac cells, which I think its the right approach to take, it keeps the rest of the safe in the event one of is captured.

but that still leaves us getting off the tac net and working out what the hell is going on.

for now I think we set up a trigger sentence that everyone who is part of the network can say, the moment any large action is taken on us. I'm open to suggestions but the goal is for it to be said in natural conversation or burst transmission.

Steady! Long time no see old friend. This idea you have for a network... well it interests me greatly. Unfortunately, my hands are somewhat tied at the moment.

You see, ever since CONCORD gave the kill order, I have put my fighting days behind me. Hell, my sentinel suit is still on the IGS collecting dust, and without my suit, well, I am as f.cking usless as a goldsh.tting holder with no slave! So with no way of me safely returning to grab my gear, I can not provide fire support.

I had my suspicions about this months ago. I got out when I still had a chance. I may be a drunk, but I know when to get out. Seen to much sh.t in my day to not be caught unawares. I am currently hiding out somewhere in the Republic, I have friends here, willing to provide me with shelter and protection. More than that, I will not say.

In saying that, I can get in contact with some old boys who I used to smuggle with back in the day. We are heavily underfunded, but we get the job done. I can get the other mercs out, but I can not risk resettling them personally, can't risk getting caught... or losing my wife again...

I wish I could do more, but it is the best I can do for now. I will send an agent your way so we can communicate better shortly.

Also, I can not stress this enough, do not search for me, do not look for me. Again, I can not risk being caught.

For now, I will be watching.

Good to see you... i'm still on the move so will keep this short. Any trustworthy contacts will be useful. It's down to each merc to get himself out. Just to keep the other safe. However known contacts we can share will be invaluable.

Transmission start

Viktor's surroundings are bleak, and grey. He's holding something in his hand.

"The rumours are true. They are sending both kill-teams from the mortal elite, and NexGen clones. The kill teams are only a small pest to us experienced clones, but the clones... The clones are stronger, faster, and tougher than us. I've fought three on two different instances. The first was in a non-combat clone, which appears to be the reason I am here. The first NexGen I fought greatly underestimated me, and if you look around Gal-Net, you may find an Audio Log that transmitted somewhere in here during that time. He wasn't expected me to be armed yet, seeing as I've had no purchases in the last few months, and came in with only a rifle and Scrambler pistol. Big mistake. I was alerted of his presence and hid with my weapons before ambushing him. He reacted fast, took a lot more shots than any of us possibly could, and when I managed to get in close, he fought like a professional fighter. Fast and strong, but foolish. He was betrayed by his own pistol being taken and shot into his head. " He held up the object he had in his hand, it was obviously a helmet, it had a hole in the center, evidence of a shot piercing it.

"The second came when I was escorted another, rude little shite clone, newer model implant than mine which made him believe he was superior. Anyway, when the two came they seemed to employ a tool that made the other start screaming in pain, clutching his helmet. It was obvious that this was his implant, but I was unaffected, which makes me believe my implant, and your implant, Steady, are safe from that tool due to the age of them. I managed to down the cocky little shite NexGens before helping away the little shite I was escorting. Trust me, they were not easy to fight.

Viktor, signing off."

*transmission opens*

"So those Buggers are starting to hunt us down? I should've known since last time I was in the field I was terminated without warning a few months back. I guess those are the work of the suits with the kill orders right? Well, ever since that happened, I've been sitting here in my warbarge, somewhere around low sec space. I can see my Assault drowning in dust as I speak. If this "Network" helps us to get away from CONCORD permanently, then I'm in. I might try and get some of my friends to pitch in, but that may not happen anytime soon, the kill teams may be anywhere.

This is Decius Skimfuse, signing off."

Hey there... It's, uhh... It's been a while, huh...


Sigh, we've not got much time, so I'll get right to the point. I'm still somewhere in lowsec empire space, I have a small ship running on a skeleton crew; but it's loaded with all the hardware I managed to get out with. A few other surprises too, heh heh...


We've agreed that it's in our best interests to pledge to this "Network" of yours, I hope by god that you know what you are doing.


A small group of ships has been trailing us for the last few hours, but we don't know if it's just pirates, eggers, or them... I'd rather not stay to find out, so we're going to-


*unintelligible noises in the background*


O.K., Time's up. I'll try to be in contact soon. Until then, stay safe.

This discussion of our 'impending demise' seems more like rumours and common hearsay to me. Without back up clones clone or the support of our modules we are already functionally as mortal as anyone in the greater cluster, with that in mind any attempt to suppress us or liquidate us could be viewed as a fundamental attempt at genocide.

Considering CONCORD at present is not viewed as a particularly decisive or trustworthy organisation, given its relative inaction against the Drifter threat, that such attempts would likely foment an anti-establishment sentiment amongst the cluster's four largest powers.

I remain unconvinced and unafraid with faith in myself to endure. Already I've be approached by an unaffiliated organisation and backer willing to aid me if I either need to become a fugitive or my condition is compromised.

All said and done though being human again sounds...... nice. I for one look forward to it.

-INCOMING TRANSMISSION-

Encryption decoded, playing message

D'weu Hya'salia here.

soo, long story short, my people in the Wildlands have succeeded in making me... human again.. this leisure clone is now my body, possibly for good... it was a good long while since i've been able to say that... it feels nice, the therapy i go to has helped me readjust to what would be considered 'normal' by new eden standards. i still recieve a few flashbacks of more turbulent times, mostly cal-prime and the opening days of our entrance to the grand stage.. but mostly i've been free from most clone circles for a while now.

Se'terra is going well now, you have no idea how harder it is to manage contracts, what with my clone implants deactivated and everything, but the lads have been helping me out, we've comissioned another vessel , identical to the Se'erra, but much larger. its going to be a unique ship, and hopefully it'll help in getting more contracts done, get the money flowing to the wildlands..


but the news of these "Kill teams" frighten me, so much so that i've been busy with gathering charts, studying them, though with not as much vigor as i did before. i know my life is not free from these kill-teams , but i cant help but go back...

So I, Hya'salia Jun'kio, one of the 16 Tribal elders of the Thukker Tribe, Pledge my support to the 'Network'

simply reply when the time comes.

I'm glad you found peace denak even if we never saw eye to eye.

Though to be clear the network is simply their as a panic buttion. I don't actually know what's going on. Every single one of us has a long list of people who want us dead. It could simply be different actors coming after us at once. Or we are all just going mad

Either way the network is their for those who need to bail and quickly. It is largely in place now it's simply a waiting game at this point. But I have a lovely penthouse setup in legion space. With the network ready to rescue anyone that needs it.

Stay safe denak the network will be here if you never need to get out.

good to know that you are well Denak

@Steady i havent had many people after my life when i was a clone, so my support for the network could be easily done via the great caravans, should it be needed. if that doesnt work then i'll use the Se'terra, and lord knows how you Amarrians love duct tape.

no problem, a small update on my end:

I've managed to gain the approval of the other elders to establish temporary "safezones" from within my home reigon.

but as far as ironing out the details of the Network, would it be possible to meet up at a mutual location to discuss further options?

...transmission across all channels to make sure it gets through.

Well. I'll be sure to raise a glass for all of you. From the horrors of the trials, to the horrors of the HEP trials, to the horrors of the wreckage from the battle for Caldari Prime, We've been through a lot together.

I may hate everyone, but I hate you guys and gals the least.

Templar, tell Satja I'll miss the derision in her eyes every time we spoke. Remember to use the words "ma'chere".

Jakar, if we go belly up before our next big bruhaha then the first round's on me when we get to the other side.

This is Heathen Bastard, going dark. I'll loop the...

My unhappiness is just a proof I'm not insane.

I'll be sure to with the "ma cherie's" and all that. Let's be honest though and say it wasn't derision as much as it was a fair and well earned, on your part, state of wariness.

Hopefully the next time I see and speak to her she'll be a free woman.

I'm truly happy for you.

I was worried after you disappeared but it sounds like you have made the best of your new life Denak. I think when this is all done I might follow your example and form that Civ-Sec corporation I've always wanted to.

The door will always be open for you if you find yourself in Intaki.

Heck, if I hadn't been unplugged of that cursed implant I may just even join you.
