The duel for the right to sit in the CEO chair of Greenbeard's Freebooters is over.
Greenbeard, the corporation founder had challenged Seismic Stan, the current CEO, to a series of duels. The first round involved three pre-fitted frigates for each pilot and resulted in three kills for Greenbeard versus only one for Seismic Stan. Rebecca Aventine, EVE: Privateer, was on scene to report as it happened: Round One Report.
This meant that Seismic Stan had only two cruisers to prepare which needed to withstand consecutive punishment from Greenbeard's two surviving rifters then two cruisers. Once again, our intrepid local reporter was on hand to give us the full 'impartial' story. See the Round Two Report to find out who won.
However, the story doesn't quite end there. Once the duel was finished and the victor was apparent, a certain space journalist put aside her notepad as a foolish jubilant challenge was issued by an over-confident and mildly drunk Freebooter CEO.

This was certainly an unexpected turn of events and so much for journalistic integrity. Nonetheless, rules is rules, and therefore I present to you the new CEO of Greenbeard's Freebooters, Rebecca Aventine:
