Beke

While I doubt anyone reads this communique, I do try to build into my writing generalities on our location or contract target. However, anyone that is spying on us will surely know that we are in Beke, Genesis and have war declared Crest Tech corp. Our client seems to be very happy with our performance thus far, and while we are on, the gates are clear for any industrial traffic.

Crest Tech sounds like a familiar name...I wonder if they were part of the Fountain Alliance like us? Not sure on that one, but must try to find out at a later date. Regardless, the fighting has been sporadic, but overall fun...mainly because we are shooting ships down, but also being hired to fight someone that will roll the dice and fight back once in awhile. The first night of the contract nothing happened as we were just probing each other to see what sort of ships were in the area. However, over the next 48 to 72 hours we have engaged and destroyed over 5 warships, and even a few pods. Crest Tech seems mainly Caldari...and while I generally fear their combat technology, nothing is better than good old fashion Amarr Armor.

Beke itself is a very interesting system. Only 2 stations, 2 gates, and countless corp station installations around every moon. The general rule in Beke is, if you warp to a Moon you die. We plan to scout it regardless just to see what is going on here...but my bet is that Beke is a large T2 component manufacturing area. It is flanked by high security space...sort of a POS oasis in "green" area. I am sure the local pirates here are very rich due to the traffic that comes through the sector.

Crest Tech joined the Pirate Coalition Alliance after we had war declared them. I am sure we did not cause this...it was probably already in the works. Regardless, our client has very deep pockets as he is paying the upgraded war declaration fees .

Sometimes its good to be a Merc..."fighting broke" seems to have taken on new meaning.
