Greetings, Roughnecks - my name is Typherion Septis and I am the commander of the Red Army... or rather, I will be the commander of the Red Army, a Serco nationalist guild, which will be forming shortly. In light of the immanent formation of the Red Army, it is my duty to introduce to you our principals and position toward your own organization.
The Red Army is the only Serco nationalist guild devoted to winning Deneb, killing the Hive, protecting our xith cargo, and capturing known criminals and enemies of the state. The Red Army is actively enlisting new recruits and all Serco and citizens of the United Independent Territories in good standing are invited to enlist in the Serco military and join the ranks of the Red Army.
The Red Army recognizes the need for interstellar cooperation and as such regards peaceful trade organizations such as Orbital Rock Extraction [ORE] and the Guild of Free Traders [TGFT], humanitarian relief groups such as Emergency Mechanical Services [EMS], and interstellar law enforcement agencies such as the Vipers [VPR] as nonhostiles: Itani pilots serving in the aforementioned groups, agencies, and organizations will be treated respectfully and will not be harassed – neither in Serco space, nor anywhere else.
The Red Army values strength and honor above all else. Strength is found in open combat – the Red Army does not conduct surprise attacks, deceive its allies, take part in piracy, kill easy targets for sport, promote terrorism, or engage in nonconsensual Player vs Player warfare (also known as griefing.) The Red Army does not grief low level pilots or harass easy targets for sport – there is no honor in the easy kill.
Any member of the Serco Empire or citizen of the United Independent Territories who has engaged in piracy and who wishes to join the Red Army may be permitted to join but must first announce to the Vipers (http://www.viperguild.com/) and to the Vendetta Online community (http://www.vendettaonline.com/x/msgboard/14) that his or her days of piracy are over. Any Red Army member who returns to piracy will be expelled and blacklisted from the Red Army forever and his or her actions will be made known to the Vendetta Online universe.
The Red Army does not engage in piracy except to capture purified xithricite ore as part of the Capture the Cargo contest and the ongoing campaign against the Itani Nation. The Red Army does not sell its services to pirates and privateers – the only master we serve is the Serco Empire.
The Red Army primarily communicates on the ingame communication channel /520. Channel 520 is chosen in remembrance of the May 20 (5/20) Victory Day over the Itani on Terra II in the year 2853 AD. You may reach me through channel /520 on most Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, but I may also be available on other days of the week.
I invite you to learn more about the Red Army and its goals at the Red Army Bulletin: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/redarmybulletin/
Strength and Honor, -Typherion Septis
