"What ho, Chauncy! Methinks another pack of scoundrels comes hither."
"T'would appear so, Merril."
"It would be quite spiffy this time, if a rather large epeen group of blaggards decides not to hot drop the universe on them, like last time, anon."
"Indubitably, Merril, indubitably."
Our CEO talks like this. I find it quite . . . "fancy". :) So anyway, there was this:
"Deep space surveillance networks picked up unusual high band electromagnetic activity during the last few days from the general direction of the 9RW5-Z constellation. Scientists believe the Polaris system to be the center of these emissions after incorporating baseline interferometry across several regions. These emissions might indicate increased activity in the mysterious system during the upcoming weekend, or they might be just be bursts of random energy. Deep space intelligence experts are said to have picked up fragments of a secret code hidden within these emissions which could be deciphered as “cc.sup.lye.avan.”
Several respectable research institutions discarded these conclusions as probably nothing more than artifacts from pink noise emissions or simply a clever scheme to fish for attention and research grants. Deep space explorers and adventures remain intrigued by the phenomena and monitoring continues on many fronts."
Aaaand, then this:
"Last night it was reported that “Deep space surveillance networks picked up unusual high band electromagnetic activity during the last few days from the general direction of the 9RW5-Z constellation” and reliable sources have told us that this is not just a bit of background space radiation.
A few of us have heard that there will be a convoy of yet undetermined ships types transporting high value goods as well as protecting important CCP devs. We do not know the exact time the convoy will leave, but all signs point to this happening very soon.
CCP Tenitigo, CCP Paradox and I will be spying for more information around the office, see what else we can find out."
Aaaallrighty, then! High value goods? Tsk tsk. They really should know better than transporting such things through hostile space. After all, they made the damn game. It's almost as if they were INTENTIONALY trying to get their shit blown up. I'm going to see if I can make it to this little shin-dig, seeing as how I missed the last one. I'll be needing a couple PLEXies soon, so maybe I can scoop one or five out of the cold and the black that is Eve space. Maybe I can get a dev corpse to add to my collection too. Minty!
But shhhhh! Don't tell anyone . . .
EDIT: Mabrick may have deduced as good of a cypher key as anyone out there which might be the location of the fleet arrival.
