‘I give you the destiny of Faith, and you will bring its message to every planet of every star in the heavens: Go forth, conquer in my Name, and reclaim that which I have given.’
– Book of Reclaiming 22:13, The Scriptures
Fueled by the loss of Raa to the Minmatar’s Tribal Liberation Force (TLF), a fleet of several corporations from the Amarr Militia formed to seize control of three Minmatar occupied star systems; Ezzara, Sifilar, and Tararan.
The quest for reclamation began early Saturday afternoon and lasted well into Sunday.
Though originally the focus was on Arzad, the Amarrian fleet soon spread out into neighboring star systems to try and force military complexes into Arzad.
(A militia must claim roughly twenty complexes of an occupied system, which come in three sizes, to make a system go vulnerable. Once a system is vulnerable, the militia must then ‘take the bunker’. After a control bunker receives structure damage, the attacking faction gains occupancy control after the next downtime.)
Tararan was the first to fall back into the hands of Amarr followed by Sifilar. Ezzara was the last to fall shortly after downtime.
Though a gallant effort was then made for Arzad, by this hour the Amarrian fleet had been active over sixteen hours and were exhausted. Jhaelee de’Auvrie claimed, “We knew that the Minmatar response would be heavy. In the end we could not manage to pry Arzad out of the better prepared Minmatar grasp.”
The fleet stood down shortly after this video footage was taken by Flyinghotpocket of the Amarr Militia.
“For the duration of this war, Arzad has been a prime target of the conflict. With much history both dear to my own heart and the ideals of the Minmatar, Arzad has always had meaning. I will not rest until Arzad is again restored to the laws that have allowed it to thrive. Amarr are of the Righteous and God will guide us to Victory in Arzad, and the rest of the Amarr sovereign systems.” Eran Mintor
The TLF, recently fattened by the alliance Electus Matari, maintains occupancy of Amarrian systems Huola, Raa, and Arzad while Amarr continues to hold occupancy of the former Minmatar’s base headquarters, Auga.
