Who Do You Think You Are Kidding Mister Sansha...

Sansha Kuvekei and his Nation armada are coming. Tomorrow.

As we stand on the eve of the greatest threat to Empire space New Eden as ever known, the majority of the population of hi-sec continue about their business in blissful ignorance. Whilst other regions of space stand ready with pilots of greater experience and resources capable of mustering a military response, those used to the protection afforded by CONCORD's response fleets are about to get a rude awakening.

In cultures past, whilst the men of fighting age were on the front taking the war to the enemy, those unable to join them would form a rear-guard to protect against any possible attack on the home front. Although often underqualified, undertrained and under-equipped, these brave souls would stand ready to protect their vegetable patches and sheds against any enemy incursion. Often from the strategically advantageous location of the local pub.

We need a Dad's Army.

In the OLD POND PUB (in-game channel), the regulars have pledged that, whenever possible, we will form an ad-hoc fleet to respond to any Sansha Incursions in nearby constellations. We have no idea how this will work, nor if it's even workable, however our spirit is strong (about 70% a.b.v.) and we are stout of heart. Others are welcome to join us in our foolhardy quest to stand firm against Fritz...er, I mean Sansha.

Let's show a bit of plucky wartime spirit and have a sing-along. All together now (sung to the Dad's Army theme):

Who do you think you are kidding Mister Sansha?
Just because we're on the rum.
We are the boys who will stop your little game.
We are the boys who will make you feel the pain.
'Cus who do you think you are kidding Mister Sansha?
If you think old Empire's done?

Missioner goes off to rat
In his missile boat.
But he knows to watch the skies
And when to get his coat.

So watch out Mister Sansha,
You have met your match in us.
If you think you can crush us,
Just get on the Interbus.

Just who do you think you are kidding Mister Sansha?
If you think we're on the run.
We are the boys who will stop your little game.
We are the boys who will make you think again.
'Cus who do you think you are kidding Mister Sansha?
If you think old Empire's done?

(Mike Azariah is pushing the same initiative of ad-hoc fleeting in response to Sansha incursions in the GALLENTE HERO in-game channel - be sure to arrive in costume. You can read his enigmatic and wise motivational material here. Then stick a carrot from your vegetable patch in his soup bowl, he'll be very grateful. Oo-er.)

  1. Folks, this is your chance to make a stand. Be it in Dad's Army and the Old Pond Pub channel or Gallente Hero channel (No you don't have to be Gallente to join)

    The spiky old bad guys are coming and we plan on being there to meet them.

  3. I've added your channel for monitoring. I'm planning to respond to any Incursion in State territory. Well, this being EvE, until the griefing gets too bad. :-)
