Yup, despite rumors regarding Raiden. deploying to Geminate NCDOT (yeah, right!), Raiden will be actually deploying to Delve and assist Against All Authorities and Nulli Secunda in the war effort against the Deklein Coalition.
The stage is set for something other than a Thunderdome.
Raiden. Deploys into Delve to help the AAA/Nulli War effort.
A propaganda filled jabber ping inundated DekCo’s comms, trying to both warn and motivate its membership:
(2:06:54 AM) directorbot: My people, I write to you from the wilds of Alaska with grim tidings. It seems that the Dunning-Kruger arrogance of A (famous, most recently, for coming north in two separate ‘campaigns’ in one month, both ‘victories’, both sent home after two weeks) has resulted in a black hole of high-gravity incompetence forming in the southeast. Shit alliances like Nulli Secunda, Vera Cruz, Red Overlord, and even zombie post-cascade abortions like Raidendot have now accreted around the residents of Catch into a shambolic ball of cretinism. This garage sale bargain bin of failed alliances are now gibbering happily at one another, declaring themselves a ‘bloc’, and that THIS TIME they will show us.
War is coming. We have held waiting to see how these ‘people’ would play their cards, and apparently they play their cards by smearing their poop on their cards and then shambling into Delve with designs on Fountain and beyond. Against All Authorities has tried their best to present a threat to the Clusterfuck and OTEC these past few months; at each turn they have failed, yet they keep trying with more allies, and more reality-defying delusion. It is time for us to move against A and their wretched assemblage, rather than simply waiting for their next ‘deployment’ to our home. We have been provoked repeatedly by assaults on OTEC moons and cries of ‘God Forgives, A Does Not’ – I intend to demonstrate to this rabble the consequence of actually provoking us to true war.
You have three days to prepare. We – and ‘We’ means ‘Everyone’ – are going to Delve, and it will burn. No mercy, no respite, no ‘freeports’, just brutal conquest – conquest which will not stop until this threat to our bloc is extinguished. If that means that we must set all of Catch on fire to remind this ex-NC, ex-IT, ex-BoB excrement of their proper place in the universe, so be it.
You’ll need Alphafleet and Tengufleet. More details to come. Be ready – this will be bloc war, real bloc war. The entire southeast – or the southwest, should we fail – is at stake.
