    The IFN presented a declassified surveillance photo from one of their IFN Scouts for the ACA.

    The photo clearly showed heavy activity at the Sil’daresh vault close to the Cathedral Pass teleporter.

    A dropship had been parked in front of the vault's open gate and the Smugglers worked swiftly with loading something on-board the dropship from the vault.
    The object they moved was contained in one single crate. The whole operation took 2 minutes and 30 seconds and was carried out with high precision and timing.

    The IFN regrets that it had no time to alert the ACA in time.

    This week it looks like the Smugglers once again started with their random attacks and guerrilla warfare, so let’s show them that we won’t accept their presence or their claims on the Arkadian Underground as theirs this Friday the 19th of September at 19:00.

    !! SMUGGLERS ARE OUR FRIENDS !!

    They do nothing different then the rest of us colonist do.

    They openly wear armour and weapons, some of these are specially made to harm or kill other humans. The Arkadian government encourages this 'open warfare' style of living in the arctic region of Sentosa. Those of us who had been a Calypsian before the Signal was heard know the life in a civilization where War is seen as a kind of entertainment or sportevent, one where the winners will get many acres of land. The looting and humiliating of other colonist is also an old story of the civilization we live in, with the killing over meagre drums of oils as a perfect example.
    The Smugglers trade across the universe. Both trying to avoid Pirates (another beastial act that is promoted) and acting like Pirates themselves. Trading on the Under- and Upperground soils of Arkadia is keeping the economy healty, so we can't blame them for doing that either.
    They obviously hunt and craft as well, most likely they mine as well. These two/ three activities are employed worldwide by 99% of all colonists. We can't point the finger at them for doing this, while ignoring the other nine fingers that are pointed at ourselves. Besides, they are very good crafters, so good that had their Über-crafters been common colonist, they would have been hailed and gratzed by the same people who now condemn them to the lowest Vaults and Pits of the Underground.
    Last, but not least, what triggers the IFN and ACA to launch a new pointless and needless attack on a group we should have welcomed as friends ... the opening and pillaging of the age-old chambers of the original Arkadians. Plundering is a word we might have forgotten, but that doesn't mean we don't do it. The ancient treasures of the Arkadians is not ours to take, keep and/ or sell on the market like fruits and stones (and weapons, hides from brutally killed animals, etc.). In fact, why does the Archeological Society let this kind of behavior happen? Why don't they open up one or more museum(s) where we can enjoy the treasures of Arkadia? It feels like they don't want us to learn their story ... ?

    So tell me why. Why do we laster, fight and steal from the Smuggler when all they resemble is a mirror to our own ways? Why, if not ... ?

    !! SMUGGLERS ARE OUR FRIENDS !!

    Ah, I guess that's something that we're going to find out: one event at a time.
    There seems to be quite an interesting history between the IFN and the Smugglers.
    At least, if we can believe those snippets of info that Ned dropped...

    Regardless: entertaining ongoing story.
    Suppose we manage to grab that mysterious crate: could we hope to find Smuggler items in it? :anticipation:

    They try to bar us from using Underground. I own a share of a piece of that land, and they are trying to screw with my income. Friends wouldn't do that so as far as I am concerned they can fuck off.

    For the people that missed it:

    Ned was seen today putting up some posters like the little rascal he is.
    There was some mention of a meeting at the moonshine bar after midnight.
