    Channel Name: Cafe Marlinea

    Cafe Marlinea - Mehatoor - 24th IC Station

    The Cafe is on the main boulevard of the capsuleer community district in the 24th Imperial Crusade station in the Mehatoor system. The front of the cafe is furnished in a toned down Gallentean fashion. The small pavement stones have been implanted in front of the cafe with holodisplays to give the appearance of an outside countryside cafe.The scents from the cafe linger on the outside, fresh coffee mixed with Gallentean and Amarrian pastries. The establishment mixes the finer points of Gallente and Amarr culture immaculately together. There are four tables in front of the cafe, set with dayshades and two chairs each.Inside of the cafe is a similar mix of gallente and amarr culture and architecture. The inside houses a one corner set with two leather couches and a table between them. the sales counter is in the middle of the cafe. One can peek over the counter through the small window to the kitchen and see the bakers busy at work. There are five tables set with four seats each in the main area and on the sides two smaller seated tables.A constant flow of customers creates a lively atmosphere. The music on the background is mainly Gallente swing style music.

    [ 2015.08.18 02:02:50 ] longshanks II > /emote exits off of the walkways within the 24th Imperial Crusade station, through crowds of faithful and some he suspects are not quite so, until he comes upon the holodisplay-equipped facade of the Cafe Marlinea. He checks the coordinates on his...
    [ 2015.08.18 02:03:03 ] longshanks II > ... message for good measure, then pulls back his hood as he steps into the cafe.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:06:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is walking down the boulevard outside. She is wearing a brown cloak and appears as Hooded Luna. She slips her hood off and blinks as she sees longshanks II. After a pause she looks amused and shakes her head and makes her way over to the man
    [ 2015.08.18 02:06:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ave, I think we were supposed to meet" She gives him an appraising eye and curtseys.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:07:58 ] longshanks II > /emote bows in the traditional manner when addressing one of higher rank, "Directric Aspenstar, I presume? A pleasure to make your acquaintance."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:08:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes., likewise" She glances at a table that is vacant and gestures. 'Let's have a seat?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:10:06 ] longshanks II > "After you, I insist," He motions, smiling. He waits for Luna to sit, then (should she do so) he takes the seat across from her.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:11:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote takes a seat. She gives a wry chuckle "ordinarily a woman is quite distressed to see someone else wearing the same outfit..."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:12:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives longshanks II an unreadable glance with her wide blue eyes.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:13:59 ] longshanks II > /emote smiles, "The robes are a necessitty in my line of work, I'm afraid." He produces a curriculum vitae on his neocom for Luna's perusal, "Though officially non-aligned with the 24th Imperial Crusade, I find myself hunted all the same."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:14:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly, she glances at the resume.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:15:14 ] longshanks II > The CV indicates attendance at Hedion University with specialties in the application of Warfare Links to Legion-class strategic cruiser outfitted with the Warfare Processor Subsystem.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:15:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well this is certainly impressive Mister...." she trails off "Is Longshanks II your call sign or real name?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:16:51 ] longshanks II > /emote chuckles, "One that I'm stuck with, I'm afraid. For my height--my colleagues at the University were quick to apply a title."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:17:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles. "Well, for my employment records and background check, I will need to know who you actually are." She smiles pleasantly, but also has a serious look on her face.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:18:56 ] longshanks II > "Of course, Directrix." He bows his head, "My true name is Ziare Vezaba, after my paternal grandfather."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:19:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. She pulls out her datapad and makes a note of it.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:20:03 ] longshanks II > /emote glances around the cafe, having made it a point to say his name quietly to keep it out of earshot.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:20:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Your name came to my attention from some mutual acquaintances who were aware of your talents."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:20:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "CanI tell you about the Society?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:21:16 ] longshanks II > /emote looks at Luna curiously, though knows better than to question a potential employer, let alone a well-connected lady, "Of course. I am eager to serve."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:22:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We are essentially a diverse fellowship of Loyalist capsuleers who seek to advance the interests of the Empire and the Faith in our different ways."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:23:15 ] longshanks II > /emote nods, paying attention to every word.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:23:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Some of us are industrialists, miners, some run missions for Empire agents, some are investigating the Drifter threat. What ties us together is our common interests."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:24:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "of late, due to the adverse shifts in the warzone, the Drifter threat, and the Imperium, I have been trying to bolster our ranks with combat pilots who can assist other faithful capsuleers in confronting those threats"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:24:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We've opened offices here, in Mehatoor, to help support PIE and other Amarr militia corporations, and in x6 in providence to prepare for a possible Imperium invasion."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:25:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I admit, most of our pilots are still based in Nahyeen, but that provides an industrial support for the other efforts."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:26:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I seek pilots who are faithful, but also self-sufficient and independent"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:27:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The corporation is there as a resource, not as an overseer or boss."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:27:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Longshanks II "those who desire a lot of structure and being told what to do every day, won't be happy here"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:28:18 ] longshanks II > /emote nods, "So if I wished to aid the war effort in the Bleak Lands, Heimatar, Metropolis, Devoid, and elsewhere, operating independently as my skills would require--I would be given freedom of movement?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:29:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes. Within the limits of our RoE which is very broad for the warzone. i think."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:29:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "All minmitar militia are deemed red."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:29:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "All non blue criminals and suspects are deemed red."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:30:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "All non-blue -5 or worse pilots are deemed red."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:30:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Amarr/Caldari Militia are deemed blue in addition to our formal blues"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:30:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > In that regard Sir, if you wish to operate independtly are you willing to take on a diplomatic role to try to broaden our mutual blue base?
    [ 2015.08.18 02:31:00 ] longshanks II > "That certainly seems clear enough, though I imagine that I will be the one playing the mouse in the game--when I was flying with 2nd Lieutenant Onzo, I ran into the necessity of dodging combat scanner probes not once, but twice."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:31:52 ] longshanks II > /emote looks at Luna carefully, "It certainly seems like a challenging prospect, but with the proper letters of introduction, I may be able to serve as a representative of the Society within the warzone for diplomatic purposes."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:32:43 ] longshanks II > "It would take time, of course. And I of course do not presume that my efforts will approach what the Society has already accomplished."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:32:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I would appreciate your insight into that."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:33:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Do you have any specific questions of me?
    [ 2015.08.18 02:34:28 ] longshanks II > "I cannot think of anything at this time, my lady, except regarding the situations of employment--payment, sick leave, holidays, and room and board?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:35:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Well we do provide SRP. In your case, I would offer 100 million. I am also willing to work with you on providing at least one ship from the corporation for link purposes and as to the contents of hangar 2 in Mehatoor (our combat hangar)
    [ 2015.08.18 02:35:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Each of our offices has niches for our pilots. You are welcome to design one and send it to me for inclusion.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:35:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > As for holidays and sick leave, you are a capsuleer. Do what you will.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:36:18 ] longshanks II > /emote nods, "Very well. The terms seem quite agreeable." He adds, "And does the Society possess the same restrictions regarding hulls that the Praetoria exercises?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:36:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No, we do not."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:37:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Admittedly, I prefer to fly Amarr hulls and SOE which is joint Amarr/Gallente tech, but i don't impose that on others."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:37:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at longshanks II. "You know besides, your resume, I know very little of you. What would you say the essence of the Amarr faith? We are after all a religious corporation in a religious society."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:39:27 ] longshanks II > /emote nods at Luna's comments regarding the ship hulls. "Easily enough," He answers with an almost rote classroom answer, "To submit ourselves before the Almighty and His chosen representative the Empress Jamyl Sarum I."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:40:21 ] longshanks II > "For it is ambition that leads to the pitfalls of the Sani Sabik, and deviance from the divine interpretation of Scripture that breed heterodoxy if not outright sacrilege."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:40:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:42:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Tell me, do you think it is more important to simply be true amarr or is it more important to live a righteous life in fear of and in compliance with God?
    [ 2015.08.18 02:43:30 ] longshanks II > "For all of the advantages that my blood line has offered it, I recognize that I lack many positive qualities of others that many of my peers are so quick to judge."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:45:03 ] longshanks II > "The piety of the Khanid, the resourcefulness of the Ni-Kunni."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:45:13 ] longshanks II > has offered me*
    [ 2015.08.18 02:45:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote twitches slightly. She nods.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:45:45 ] longshanks II > /emote chuckles, "I fear my education may have been too liberal for your liking, my lady."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:46:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shakes her head amused. "Some people accuse us of being too liberal. No, your answer is fine."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:48:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > being a commoner, I doubt you have little direct experience in this, but what do you think the purpose of slavery is today in modern Amarr Society?
    [ 2015.08.18 02:48:40 ] longshanks II > "All that I know is that some of my best professors were slaves."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:49:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks. "Really?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:50:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do you mean were actually slaves, or were those who had finished their process of redemption?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:51:06 ] longshanks II > "I'm fairly certain that Professor Crofton is still a slave."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:51:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And how do you feel about that?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:52:00 ] longshanks II > "Some of his views are heretical, so it makes sense that he remains one. I pray for him daily that he will find the truth in God's wisdom."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:52:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:53:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > So you feel slavery can be a vehicle through which he can do so?
    [ 2015.08.18 02:54:37 ] longshanks II > "Of course, my lady."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:55:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And what of those slaves who are recaltitrant?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:56:10 ] longshanks II > "It simply does not benefit them."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:56:28 ] longshanks II > "And it is the duty of the rest of us to pray for those souls."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:57:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And what if discipline is needed alongside with prayers. How would you feel that should be done?"
    [ 2015.08.18 02:58:50 ] longshanks II > /emote shakes head, "I'm afraid that would be a question for a Holder, my lady."
    [ 2015.08.18 02:59:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2015.08.18 02:59:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gets an odd look in her eye. "Would you say it is important to be merciful?"
    [ 2015.08.18 03:00:21 ] longshanks II > "To be merciful is a virtue, as is being compassionate."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:01:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote slaps longshanks II quickly along the side of the face. She stares at him evenly. Very slowly, she turns her cheek and presents it to him.
    [ 2015.08.18 03:02:39 ] longshanks II > /emote turns his head to the side with the blow, then slowly turns back to look at Luna. He says quietly, "Striking a woman is unbecoming, as my mother would say."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:03:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly, "Your mother is wise." She gets a faint smile.
    [ 2015.08.18 03:03:25 ] longshanks II > /emote rubs his cheek gently, "Though I admit I wasn't expecting that."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:03:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "My apologies, Longshanks. One has to be sure people walk the talk."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:04:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote's smile grows a little broader. "if you would like to join us, I'd be honored to have you."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:04:25 ] longshanks II > "Feel free to call me Ziare, my lady." He bows, "And I would be happy to serve as one of your pilots."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:05:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Welcome Ziare, You can accept the invitation at any time."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:05:36 ] longshanks II > /emote takes out his neocom, submitting the requisite paperwork.
    [ 2015.08.18 03:08:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stands. "Congratulations and thank you."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:08:52 ] longshanks II > /emote rises with Luna, bowing respectfully, "I'll have possessions moved and I'll begin drafting the fittings for a corporation command link vessel."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:09:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you Sir. I look forward to hearing from you. I will set your base to Mehatoor and give you access to hangars 1 and 2"
    [ 2015.08.18 03:11:06 ] longshanks II > "And I look forward to taking my place within the vaunted halls of the Society."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:12:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles and curtseys.
    [ 2015.08.18 03:13:03 ] longshanks II > /emote bows politely once more, "If you will excuse me, my lady, I will begin tending to a few errands."
    [ 2015.08.18 03:24:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > have a Blessed Night.' She smiles.
