Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris (PIE), one of the oldest and most respected corporations in New Eden, is recruiting. For many years we have existed, not only to uphold the Word of the Lord, but also to keep our ancient traditions alive and defend the Holy Amarr Empire against her enemies.
We gladly sacrifice ourselves in the name of Her Imperial Majesty The Empress and the Scriptures, both of which we follow fervently, and seek to once again unite the galaxy under our way of life.
PIE's pilots, in particular our officers, have many years of experience in-pod and offer guidance & advice whenever it is needed. You will be flying with the best, and all the benefits that that entails are available to you. There is an incredible sense of camaraderie, honour and above all pride amongst the pilots of the corporation. We are a band of brothers and sisters that work together, fly together and sometimes die together, with a deep felt belief in our cause, our corporation and our empire.History
PIE, Inc. is the oldest pod-pilot corporation loyal to the Amarr Empire, having been founded early in YC105 (May 2003). It is believed to be the third oldest surviving player corporation in EVE. It is notable for its policy of only admitting True Amarr, Ni-Kunni, and Khanid pilots into its ranks and for only flying ships based upon Amarr hulls. The sister corporation, Praetorian Auxiliary Force, is currently recruiting Caldari, Gallente and Minmatar pilots who wish to serve the Empire.
Throughout its existence, PIE Inc. has been a fervent RP supporter of the Amarr Empire and has also engaged in multiple anti-pirate campaigns. PIE is currently focusing on the war with the Minmatar Republic.
PIE Inc. was also the founder of the CVA alliance and participated in the Operation Deliverance wars in Providence and low-security Domain. Its CEO at the time, Hardin, was also alliance executor. PIE Inc. eventually left CVA to return to Empire space and Imperial Dreams took charge of CVA.Listed among its achievements
are the return of an Apocalypse Imperial Issue to the Empire through a Minmatar blockade, escorting Brother Joshua on his journeys around the Kor-Azor region, being a founding member and former executor corporation of the Curatores Veritatis Alliance, and participating heavily in the conflict between the Amarr Empire and Minmatar Republic. PIE Inc. was also recognised by Yonis Ardishapur for its role in the capture of Kourmonen from Minmatar forces, and by Grand Admiral Kezti Sundara for its work in the Research Race of YC116.
Surround yourself with the faithful, Stand together, for there is no strength like it under the heavens.
The Scriptures, Book of Missions 71:21
PIE, Inc. is an Amarr-only Corp and will not accept applications from individuals not of Amarr, Ni-Kunni or Khanid origin. Pilots of other races are able to join our sister corporation, Praetorian Auxiliary Force (PAUX). Recruitment of PAUX is done via PIE recruitment officers and PAUX pilots are expected to follow the same rules as PIE pilots.
Potential applicants have to understand and be in agreement with the PIE Inc. Contract of Employment
. They also need to be in broad agreement with our mission statement and aims and objectives.
PIE is not a place to seek redemption. Pilots applying to the Praetoria should have clean criminal records as far as Amarrian law is concerned and have no record of working against the Amarr Empire in any capacity. If a pilot has a record that has been sullied in any way, their application will only be considered if they have clearly redeemed themselves through direct service to the Empire.
Pilots in PIE are in a permanent state of war with the Minmatar militia and often several other organizations. If you are not willing to risk your ship and life to defend the Empire you need not apply.
We expect all of our members to take part in the war either through industrial and financial support or active military duty.
We are dedicated roleplayers who participate in various EVE sponsored as well as player sponsored RP storylines, HOWEVER, we don't expect everyone to be RP experts when they join PIE. There is much written about the Amarr Empire in EVE fiction and other posts and we like to see people make an effort to read these items (they're all in one place for easy reference
) and try to fit their character into the mold of "loyalist" before they apply to PIE.
Potential recruits are expected to register on PIE's forums http://www.piecorp.info/community/board/
and make an application through the Recruitment section.PAux Caldari Program
PIE values the Amarrian alliance with the Caldari State. As such, we are offering a pilot program within the Auxiliary that allows for Caldari allies to fly with Amarr's finest in the Amarr-Matari warzone and learn about Amarrian culture while fighting our mutual enemies. It is our hope that this program will lead to better ties between our cultures.
Applicants to this program are required to be of Caldari origin and to have shown a long term dedication to either the Caldari Militia, the Amarr Militia, or one of PIE's capsuleer allies. They are required to have a generally positive opinion of the Amarr Empire and religion, but membership in the faith is not required for general membership in the program.
Applicants should follow the normal application process, but make clear in their application that they are applying to the Caldari Program. Pilots in this program will be allowed to use Caldari ships and to run missions for Caldari agents as well as Amarrian ones. Otherwise, they are expected to follow the same rules and standards as the rest of the Auxiliary. PIE will not provide Caldari hulls, but the pilots in this program will have access to the standard Amarrian hulls provided by the corporation.
Should a Caldari pilot decide to convert to the Amarrian faith, then they will be able to transfer to the main rank track of PAux and advance to Officer Rank. Such a conversion will require the abandonment of non-Amarr hulls. Finally...
We in PIE are in EVE to play a game. We don't believe in "win at all cost" and we won't play like that. We are however, loyal, dedicated, fun and believe in Amarr, the Empire and Faction Warfare. If you feel like you want to be part of the family and can answer YES! to these questions, then you may be just what we are looking for:
1. Are your background story and history realistic and not overly grandiose or full of unsupported or bizarre claims?
2. Are your characters postings on IGS of a pro-Amarr or at least not negative toward Amarr nature?
3. Have you read the RP history of Amarr and made an effort to learn a bit about the RP community you're entering?
4. Are you someone who believes the goal of EVE is to "Have Fun" above all else?
5. Can you follow directions without question from experienced combat leaders during the heat of battle?
6. Are you financially self-supporting?
This is who we are and why we play the game. Friendship above all else in the greatest nation in the galaxy...
