Nulli Secunda lost their space in Delve, and the remaining in period basis is just a matter of time.
Since then, they have moved to Otosela in the north, and looking at a map thats a pretty sweet location for lots of things. The plan is to join Amarr Faction Warfare and make a lot of isk off that in some way, or atleast try to.
For now the alliance corps needs to raise their standings though, for the alliance to be able to even get into Faction warfare. A lot of us remember how Origin. tried to join Nulli Secunda, but that only lasted a week, allegedly because of terrible terrible nulli secunda forums. Which, yeah… we can all imagine. But Black Legion has been bros for a long time and now that Nulli Secunda has cut all ties to -A- and their sov in the south, there is nothing standing in their way of doing what ever they want with Black Legion and friends.
And so, the House of Starks is birthed into eve history. A Merry band of nothing to lose everything to gain bunch of alliances, living in a cross section of good fights with very engage-able entities.
Sunday Morning, 22-07-2012, Elo Knight and Jean Leaner engaged with Goonswarm, The CFC and DaBigRedBoat.
Jean Leaner was the Nulli Secunda FC in this, and he had this to say on Kugutsumen:
OK so We formed up waiting for our illustrious never wakes up for ops leader progodlegend to grace us with his presence and lead this op. He didnt show up and slept through it in the end, so I took the op over with Admiral Canaris Roshaak Commanding our Tracking Dread Armada. We moved late to system, got there just before tower got out, and camped DBRB’s ingate. Eventually boat decided to jump his fleet in, and started following him around in zealots as he failed to pull his fleet any further than 30 from us somehow(really, how did this happen?). A cyno opens and 9ish CFC carriers jump in, at this point we’re waiting to see if they triage or not, and continue to own drakes while our reps hold. The carriers never enter triage so I open our cyno and We drop our load of tracking dreads, All of the carriers on gate died within the first seige cycle, and then we started removing drakes at a highly accelerated rate. We eventually cleared the field having lost from our(the s2n) fleet a Rook, a dictor, and a zealot. We landed on the tower with it at 47% shield and 6 or so carriers well outside shields repping it, we killed 4 of the carriers and managed to stop the pos from becoming strontable again. Tower died, we went home. +1 tech blah blah hurf blurf. Good fight, I had a ball.
So, for now the House of Starks hold 1 tech, and rumor has it another 4-5 is reinforced.
In Boats and CFCs defence, it has to be said that Starks dropped capitals with Goonswarm still on their heels from finishing Delve and supers and most of their capital fleet probably not home and around in full numbers yet. Also the same reason nobody expects Starks to hold on to the Tech for to long. House of Stark also plans to participate as much as possible in fights happening in Germinate, being the third party in fights over there.
And theres not really much anyone can do to stop them.
And fuck that “Starks” is kind of a bad parallel when they have no isk, no sov and not that big numbers and no desire for power. But rather that Starks are awesome and so is this Nulli/Black Legion pact and that makes them, the Starks.
What will be interesting is, how is NCdot going to react. Everyone expects them to show up for this tech timer, but actually on the Starks side. They have and have had blue standings with Black Legion for a while and OTEC agreement has no clauses requiring them to defend or not get involved in Tech take overs. So a side for Nulli Secunda having NCdot set -10 atm. theres nothing standing in the way of them coming and supporting the Starks. To my recollection, theres no bad blood between Nulli and NCdot. So there, thats an update for you on whats going on in EVE-Online.
Thanks to Atticus/Matt Fairbanks, Finiks and Jean Leaner for helping me understand all of this a bit better. These dudes will probably be some of the most interesting stories to read and follow for the rest of the year.
And Elo Knight has high thoughts about and for himself:
