    RP - Commissioning of House Raholan's new Flagship

    Post by LucasRaholan on Sun Apr 06, 2014 7:33 am

    Below is the speech given from the Bridge of the newly commissioned Paladin known as HRF Lance by Lord Raholan, head of the Raholan family.

    Members of House Raholan, and of the Societas, fellow Captains and friends. Long have we stood in the protection of the Empire and of its people, today we mark the addition of a new Flagship for House Raholan in effort of that cause.
    When I took my first steps into space, in that lowly Imparior, I could only have dreamed of even seeing a ship as graceful as this bear my houses emblem, for only the worthy may command such a vessel, such a symbol of Imperial might and grace.
    And today, I stand in that dream, not a dream but a reality, to mark this day among such fellow captains, and close friends fills me with pride.
    The days may still be long and the threats many, But House Raholan as it has always will stand against such threats and throw them back into the black arms of Molok. With our new Flagship at the helm, we shall purge the heretics from our lands. And we will also look back, at the faithful who have fallen in such a task, and we shall know that their faith and fortitude drives our engines forward and fuels our guns in this task, for we also fight for their memory, for their everlasting soul. So under the eyes of God, under the blessing of the Empress and the Sefirim may HRF Lance serve well in this mission until it is completed. Amarr Victor

    Below is the blessing given unto the vessel by the Director of the Societas, Nicoletta Mithra

    I have only little to add to what you so aptly put into words. And what I have to add is hard to put into words, so I will take refuge in metaphor and analogy. Now, then let us consider a human being. We all know that our minds sit in our heads, our brains, to be more specific. But is that all that is to us? Many capsuleers would want to make us believe so. But then, in the embryo, even before the brain is formed, there's the heart. The proverbial 'salient point'. Starting to beat early and making sure that everything else in the body gets the nutrients it needs to get formed. Similarly, if we consider a ship, the bridge is certainly like the brain, the centre where decisions are made - for better or worse. But we as Amarr know that there's also a heart to each ship, from which everything else on it is nourished. No, I'm not talking about the caboose (group chuckles). Though that'd have some truth to it as well. No, I'm thinking of a more spiritual nourishment, one we Amarr accept to be quite fundamental. So, the chapel which we find in each ship big enough, or the shrine we have, however simple it may be, is the heart of the whole thing. So, take this flame with you, taken from the holy flames of the SFRIM chapel, to bring light onto your ship and let the prayers of SFRIM be with. God bless you Lord Raholan and the HRF Lance! So mote it be!
