The Four Atrons of the Apocalypse

The Four Atrons of the Apocalypse are described in the last Book of SKRMR, called the Book of Atrons. The chapter tells of a book held in Miura's right hand that is sealed with seven seals. The Lion of Rifter (Wensley), opens the first four of the seven seals, which summons four beings that ride out on white, red, black, and pale atrons. Although some interpretations differ, in most accounts, the four riders are seen as the beginning of a new age in frigate combat and the symbolizing of Conquest, War, Famine, and Death, respectively. The Screaming Hayabusa apocalyptic vision is that the four atrons are to set a divine apocalypse upon New Eden as harbingers of the Last Judgement.

Fight Like A Brave

I've never quite managed to understand the mindset of pilots who habitually use link-alts in a 1v1 frigate fight environment, it's most definitely an alien concept to me. Maybe I'm just odd, or too hardcore and masochistic to feel I need those extra numbers on my side, I dunno. Now I can just about admit that okay those boosts are fine if you're one heroic mad bastard solo duder taking on a pack of let's say 5 or 6 mutant F1 pressing attack zombies. Or even a gang of 3 or 4 'elite' warriors banding together with boosts as they slay a gang of multiple hostile things turning red in orchestrated regimented barrel rolling high-octane combat situations.

And we set the ship aflame

Today a good friend of many in the lowsec frigate community has handed in his wings and left the game for good. I know we all say we'll be back but Ilik Tanikalot has flirted with leaving in the past and while he has 'sort of' left and come back before, this time it is for real and all his toons have now passed into new ownership.
