To the people of the Free Systems

Post  Ar'yayhivequeen on Fri Jun 24, 2011 4:36 am

This is a prerecorded message being sent from my Fleet within the Free Systems (not the one from the mission) Which consists of 10 Vespas with their 2 Hornets each (20 hornets total) The Hornets shall escort the Vespas but make no aggressive moves.

"Dear people of the Free Systems, I bring glad tidings from the Church of the Horned Dog. I am called Mother Julietta and I am sending this message to all who will listen, all with open minds and open hearts. Those who are rich in faith and love in their hearts. I speak of a better life, one free of disease, free of aging, free of loneliness. Within the Horned Dog you can have these for your own, surrounded by those who love you, constant encouragement, rewarding work. We welcome all people from any walk of life, whatever you passion is we welcome you. Do you want to journey across the stars and spread the faith? Do you want to stay local and help those in need? Do you want to protect the oppressed? Do you want to study and learn about the universe around you? We welcome you no matter your calling, one doesn't need to fight or even be put in harms way. Our members build roads, schools, work in soup kitchens, churches, are doctors, lawyers, tailors and more.
We send this message of peace because we love you, we are so filled with love that we constantly search for more people to show this love to. If you are interested in learning more please come to the following coordinates (wherever the current location of the fleet is) we are ever moving but we will constantly update you all on our current location.
In order not to worry anyone we will not be getting too close to any planets or trade stations. If you need extra time to get to us please transmit your desire to come aboard and I am sure we can wait for you. We are here for all of you, to show you how much we care for you."

(this message shall be repeated over and over again the only change being the current location of the fleet being updated, if any attack happens they shall send out an SOS and ask for the attack to stop as they are unarmed and want peace. Any attackers will be invited to come aboard for a free hot meal just like any guest would be. None of my Horned Dogs will be armed)

Greetings Mother Julietta,

This is the 7th Armada, Echo Eight. We are responding remotely based on your communications and are tracking your movements. You have entered Free Systems territory. We see you are travelling in an authorized Banking Guild merchant vessel. Thank you for broadcasting your message twice as you entered Free Systems space.

Kindly state your intended location and forward us your cargo manifest for our review.

Also, a word to the wise and for your safety, if you keep broadcasting across this channel, every non-military ship will most likely attempt to attack you, as your broadcasting across public access channels to fellow non-military ships. It is our duty to advise you of the danger you are attracting due to the unpopularity of your faith in light of recent events.

That is odd as we have been here for over a week and we haven't been attacked once. We were even contacted by a Mr. Cecil Hornbow when we entered. He asked if we were invading his territory, we assured him that of course we weren't and he left it at that. He even said welcome, so we figured that we were.
Is the Temporal Empire taking back it's welcome?
Well, I am sure that they can send an escort for us to protect us. After all, these are the Free Systems, thus it should be free to travel around as long as one doesn't harm other people. Isn't that correct? Are other civilian vessels coming under attack? Perhaps we should contact the Free Systems government and tell them that non military vessels are in danger in these territories. I am sure they will want to know as these are Free Systems and violence against people not committing violence is surely against the law. Well we shall send them a message, and until then I am sure your fleet can escort us and keep us safe until we hear back from them.

**Open message to everyone who can hear it**
Dear Free Systems government, This is Mother Julietta, in the Church of the Horned Dog fleet "Love will save us all". I have been informed by "The 7th Armada" that as we are a civilian fleet transmitting a message of peace on civilian frequencies that we should expect an attack by non military sources. As we arrived here a week ago and after welcoming us you never asked us to leave we were under the impression that we had your permission to stay here. We have stayed under the guild lines that we said we would. We are not getting close to Planets or trading stations and are just transmitting a message of peace and love to those who will listen willingly. As these are Free Systems I believe people are Free to believe what they wish to as long as they do not commit violence unto others. This fleet is using unarmed ships and the crew is unarmed as well. We invite all to join us for a free meal and a talk about faith and love.
Perhaps the Temporal Empire Government would be willing to send in some ships to escort us on our faith mission. It should last a few weeks, also the ships you assign to protect us will be more then welcome to join us at any of our prayer meetings.

(Out of Character can you please discribe what the 7th Armada is made up of so I know what is in front of me)

In immediate response to your prior message

Post  MaehlHoldings on Fri Jul 08, 2011 11:31 am

Mother Julietta,

While your ship is allowed into the Free Systems, you are still required to have a specific destination (or several) and pay the proper taxes. Once you have done so, you will not be harassed by our forces.

You are also formally advised to cease and desist your broadcasts. The communications channels you are utilizing are reserved for Ship to Ship or Ship to Planetary Traffic Control only. Your message is not being heard on any planet, and repeating the message over and over again inhibits standard operation of transport, which is expressly forbidden. While we understand your desire to speak to the masses, the use of these channels will not be tolerated.

As clarification, you are not being threatened. And you should consider yourself advised of the adverse reaction you will get in the Free Systems to your message. The people of Free Systems do not like, or trust, the Quall, their pets, their allies, and their faith. As such, you will not receive an escort, however, if you provide specific destinations, we will ensure safe harbor and transport.

***communication received from Echo Eight of the 7th Armada***

Why Mr. Echo Eight these types of things should have been said in your first transmission instead of making threats of pirate attacks. We shall adjust our transmissions so that they are directed to the nearest planet. As to the taxes, how much do you wish us to pay you to make sure that we aren't attacked....in taxes of course.

I do find it saddening that the seeming racism that you claim to be accepted in the Free Systems. Now recently members of the Free Systems threatened many with weapons of mass destruction, should we judge ALL members of the Free Systems this way? We shall provide to you our flight plan, we are making tours of worlds. While not landing on any of course, here are the list of worlds we will be flying past in our journey. As you are quite aware we are using legal ships with no weapons to threaten anyone. We are aware that the pirates of the Free Systems do what you say so since we are offering to pay your.....taxes, and provide you with our flight plan I am sure that the local pirates will suddenly find other targets to go after out of sheer coincidence.
As to every single citizen of the Free System hating us, I find that impressive. I didn't realize that you possessed a Hivemind, fascinating really that billions upon billions of people all think exactly alike. If you will forgive us we must see this first hand. Even in the Iron Republic with their trillions upon trillions of people living there there are people with differing opinions on many subjects. To find an area of space that is completely filled up with people of the exact same beliefs, this is something that must be documented.

Though there is one last thing that we must ask. Why do you bring up the Quall N'Drone? We have never even mentioned them once in our transmissions? Nothing about what we are preaching about now involves the Quall N'Drone. I think you are making assumptions.

Mother Julietta,

My name is not Echo Eight, this ship's name is Echo Eight.

Regarding travel policy, all ships originating outside of the Free Systems that is not a Free Systems ship that is travelling through the Free Systems have to have a definitive destination. They have to disembark on a planet, pay planetary taxes, and go through a 24 hour quarantine. In this case, since you are not a Free Systems ship, you are entitled to a 36 hour visa once quarantine is finalized. Any stay longer than that and you are eligible for additional planetary taxes on a per diem basis upon re-embarkation. Flagrant penalties are subject to confiscation of ship and its cargo, along with incarceration and/or deportment. While you are entitled to visit as many planets as you see fit, you must port at each individual planet in order to pay all relevant fees and taxes.

If you do not trust my words or intentions, or fear for the safety of your vessel, then I advise you to leave the Free Systems. Legally, you are granted entry into the Free Systems. But you are a guest, and an unwelcome one at that. It is common knowledge in the Free Systems that the Cult of the Horn Dog serves the Quall N'Drone. Plus, we have seen the videos, the ones with the scans of your church members with larva in their heads. Believe me or not, I don't care. It's not my job or intention to argue with you regarding the nature of your faith or the truth of my perceptions. I have performed due diligence in advising you of the adverse reaction your sermons will have in our territory, and I am advising you of Free Systems operating procedure. Your actions, decisions, and beliefs are your own.

Please advise your first port of call so that I can send a message to the proper planetary authorities to expect your vessel. What you do once you are on planet, in quarantine, or anything else is irrelevant, as long as you adhere to protocol. If you have a problem with our actions, beliefs, and how this vessel or any other vessel or Free Systems group has acted, or with intergalactic protocols, we encourage you to contact the proper Temporal Imperial authorities with your complaints.

Very well, we shall alter our course to the nearest planet that our transmissions are going to. We shall pay all planetary dues and adhere to all quarantine.

Indeed, the Horned Dog as a whole serve the Quall N'Drone, as you know there are many Hive Queens each with their own Horned Dogs, and as you know not all Queens are clones of each other and they all act differently. Our branch of the Horned Dog do not worship the Quall as gods, the Queen we follow does not treat us as slaves or servants but as friends, every single Horned Dog is here willingly and made our decision with both eyes open. We keep our views in this regard to ourselves because other branches of the Horned Dog might take offense. Your assumptions and blind anger and hatred are your own and we do feel sorry that you use such blanket assumptions. As to your scans you will have to have noticed that not all people on these ships have larva in their heads. We have crew members who are members but without larva and we have family members of members who also do not have larva.

We have cooperated completely with you in every way here. You could have simply made a list of things we needed to do in the first place and we would have done it. You were the one with the holier then thou attitude who wanted to make this into more then it is and harrass us. Why even threaten pirate attacks if you just were treating us like any guest. You let your bias and bigotry color your actions and you have been quite offensive.

We will continue our journey of peace, I will not be surprised when we are met with blind ignorance, if the people of your territories enjoy forming blanket opinions of hatred and paint entire species as one way then so be it. We will be secure in the knowledge that these "evil" Horned Dog vessels are filled with open minded peace loving people and the Free Systems will be the ones who embrace ignorance and hatred. We hope that one day the people here will learn that assumptions only lead to more ignorance.

Mother Julietta,

Echo Eight calling. I've neglected one major thing regarding the legality of your travels. I've been advised by my superiors to also advise you that any creature with a larva implanted in their heads will be executed on sight. While your vessel is legally allowed to enter any port on any planet, any beings disembarking a vessel and going through quarantine will be subject to local law, which includes the prohibition of any individual with a larva in their head from being in the Free Systems.

You are expected, as per international treaty, to uphold the laws of our lands. Violation of these laws will not be tolerated. If any of your crew are found to be disembarking from your vessel, they will be prosecuted accordingly.

I get you're frustrated about being advised haphazardly regarding our laws, you did not ask anyone about our laws before entering our territory. Had you planned your trip accordingly, moreso than merely requesting admittance, we would not be having these conversations. As per international treaty, it is always the responsibility of the travelling party to ensure they have the proper clearances and are aware of and in compliance to local laws. You're upset, you don't like my attitude and I get that. However, I'm just the gatekeeper. On the next occasion you choose to travel to the Free Systems, I heavily advise you to make a full set of inquiries prior to travel.

Port taxes are as follows for non-Free System craft:
Low Population (less than 1 Million) - 1,000 ghaz (or credit equivalent plus a 2% exchange fee)
Mid level Population (less than 1 Billion) - 2,000 ghaz (or credit equivalent plus a 2% exchange fee)
High level Population (more than 1 Billion) - 3,000 ghaz (or credit equivalent plus a 2% exchange fee)
Ghaz or Credits only, no other forms of payment accepted

You enjoy your travels through the Free Systems, Mother Julietta.

-Echo Eight out-

Yes, as a matter of fact it is quite bothersome that you keep mentioning new regulations each time we speak. If I was a suspicious person I would think that you were adding things each time on purpose.

As to the larva restriction, I suspected that you would throw that at me at some point. It is quite good that I planned for that and part of our crew are Horned Dogs that don't have Larva.
So the individuals with Larva shall remain on the ship while those without larva shall disembark to speak to the people. As you can see I am very accommodating and reasonable.

As this will be our first stop, we shall land on a low population planet, we shall head there now and contact the space port and land. We shall pay the docking fees in Iron Republic credits. We look forward to our visit, when our missionaries come back to the ship I am sure they will have wonderful stories to tell of the local populations. I am sure we shall find at least some people willing to hear us and allow us to show them that you cannot believe all the horror stories out there. Maybe one day even you will understand that we are here for peaceful reason and you cannot simply assign blame to an entire race for the actions of the majority.

The Fleet landed on the nearest planet (sorry i do not have a name) paid the custom's agent the equivalent of 2,000 Ghaz in IR credits (i will assume it is a mid level population planet) and 5 green robed individuals leave each ship (50 overall)

They all walk unarmed to the customs agents who scan them all for Larva, finding none the standard quarantine process begins for them.

They will wait the standard quarantine period then go out and pass out literature about the Church of Dawn's new Light. Smiling politely at everyone and answering all questions asked.

A young man approaches the mission gathering. He is young, copper skinned, with shoulder length hair and dark eyes. He is wearing garb indigenous to the planet's harsh heat.

"Greetings, missionaries. My name is Yeshua, and I have a question for you. Why is your faith better than our own?"

Greetings Yeshua, I am called Initiate Wruta and I bring warm tidings from the Prelate Ye'seren who guided and helped us to the light of the new dawn.
As for our faith, we do not claim that it is better then anyone's, simply different. We do not speak of gods, ours is more of a philosophy and a caution. Even now ancient evil beings seek to take over all of reality and enslave all to their will. We are tasked with warning all of their desires against the different peoples and to preach peace and cooperation to all that we might foil their plans. The greatest evil among them is known as Warmonger, he thrives off hate and violence. Direct confrontation will never truly defeat him as darkness cannot ever truly defeat darkness. Only the light of understanding and peace could ever weaken this creature enough for us to banish him from our worlds and save us from his fury.
Other ancient evils are out there but few are making overt plays for our souls, one of them is the Creeping Darkness who has sent his avatar against this dimension. His avatar is the one known as Angel D, or the Angel of Desolation. She caused great death with her E Strain Manslayer armies and her wormhole weapons which have already consumed countless innocents.

We pray for others to experience the dawning of understanding, to banish the darkness caused by ignorance and oppression. That is why we made this journey, we believed that a good place to start preaching understanding and peace would be a location not dominated by the soul crushing oppression of the Iron Republic. We wish to help those people as well and our missionaries are indeed trying to help several of their worlds. However we felt that if anyone would cooperate with our desires to resist the ancient evil of Warmonger the people of the Temporal Empire would be a good people to concentrate on.
We have faced resistance from your people, but we suspect that was mainly caused by preconceived notions and long held prejudices against our former patrons. We do hope that our openly shedding previous yokes does much to show our sincerity.

We try not to judge others by their previous actions, we have found the Temporal Empire quick to jump to conclusions and driven by over reaction and not by reason. We do hope that these previous events do not define how they normally are and were simply rare occurrences.

If you have any specific questions we would love to answer to the best of our ability.

"Initiate Wruta ... I do not wish to presume who your former patrons were, but in the 2000+ years since the rise of the Iron Republic the Temporal Empire was kept the Free Systems safe from the Iron Republic's oppression. The ignorance you speak of does not exist here. And if the Temporal Empire acted against you or your kind, I can't imagine "quick" being the word to describe their actions. While I do not wish to discuss the merits of time, I am somewhat disheartened with the generalizations you use in the same breath of wishing to dispel generalization and pre-concieved notions. For example, we are neither ignorant or oppressed.

So I am confused about your purpose here."

The crowd watches the conversation, interested in its development.

"I never claimed that the Free Systems are oppressed, I said that the people of the Iron Republic are oppressed. Perhaps you misheard me when I spoke earlier.
I will quote my self

"We pray for others to experience the dawning of understanding, to banish the darkness caused by ignorance and oppression. That is why we made this journey, we believed that a good place to start preaching understanding and peace would be a location not dominated by the soul crushing oppression of the Iron Republic. We wish to help those people as well and our missionaries are indeed trying to help several of their worlds. However we felt that if anyone would cooperate with our desires to resist the ancient evil of Warmonger the people of the Temporal Empire would be a good people to concentrate on. "

I just used verbal emphasis on the part that you misheard.

I actually said that it was because your people aren't oppressed that we came here. I do not hold your people to the actions of your government or their species. Nor do I maintain that their violent actions are the norm. So I actually did not make any sweeping generalizations of your people. I am not sure why you would say I did."
