Hello, friends. As many of you may know, I-RED has restarted a new version of the Syndicate Stability Initiative. This thread will act as a source for all the information you could possible want regarding the ongoing collaborative project. We encourage others to get involved in one way or another, or simply sit back and enjoy the content we have to offer.
This original post is currently in the process of being assembled. Updates will be done over time.
Syndicate Stability Initiative II©OverviewWith the return of the Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive to Syndicate, an opportunity to ameliorate the lives of those who call it home while also making a handsome profit presented itself. Naturally, being able to provide benefit to and gain support from the local population while also earning a handsome profit was simply too irresistible. Motions and plans were put into place. The reincarnation of the original Syndicate Stability Initiative was born. With a renewed fervor and with access to new and advanced Upwell Consortium structures, the possibilities on the horizon most certainly seem nearly infinite.
The purpose of the Syndicate Stability Initiative II© is to generate content for the old and bitter veterans of EVE roleplay as well as the eager and young roleplayers who are just starting out. I-RED is currently hard at work on developing a number of projects that will help inject life and activity to the region of Syndicate and the RP scene. We also hope to provide ample opportunities for our fellow roleplayers to engage and involve themselves in the roleplay scene. EVE offers a huge, vibrant, complicated, beautiful universe. Let us immerse ourselves. Let us forge new stories. We are the storytellers here. Let us make some amazing, memorable stories together.DevelopmentsProject R.E.A.C.H.©DescriptionProject R.E.A.C.H.© (Resource Extraction for Amelioration of Cluster-wide Health) aims to push the tenant of planetary excavation for the purposes of resource collection and integration with the interstellar economy. With fair taxes and basic infrastructure to support the development of planets, I-RED is confident both baseliners and capsuleers can create a rich network of stability and economic progress. Tied with this project is also a lobbyist movement to encourage the Federal administration to lift the ban on the settling of planets in Syndicate for colonial purposes - even though a good chunk of brave explorers already have.
From a practical standpoint, this project will seek to establish a solid network of POCOs in the 98Q superpocket where applicable. Low tax rates will hopefully encourage their use by outsiders, in addition to the safety provided by Operation Grey Steel© structures in systems which lack NPC stations. Long term goal is to establish collaboration projects when it comes to creating things like planetary colonies/cities - and hopefully we can actually influence the Federation to change their ban on the settlement of Syndicate planets.

A newly restructured I-RED jumped on the opportunity, and created this project as a result. The goals of Operation Grey Steel© are numerous, but in essence it seeks to facilitate improved stability, prosperity, and safety for the 98Q superpocket in particular. Already the project has experienced much success in encouraging more baseliner activity in the area. It remains to be seen, however, how the Syndicate at large feels on the increased presence of I-RED - and by extension, Ishukone.
The goals of this project from an OOC standpoint are quite simple. Improve the visibility of I-RED as an influential RP entity, provide a dockable structure that the general public has access to in systems which lack NPC stations, and offer services for both RPers and non-RPers. Furthermore, these Upwell structures will act as tools with which we will be able to create fun content in the future. Also, giant space cities which support thousands of people and stuff are cool. Like, really cool.Relevant LinksOperation Grey Steel© InfosheetOperation Grey Steel© Investment Policy Form

: SSI2IshuNet™ Task NetworkDescriptionFollowing an increasing strain on resources to deal with a growing list of responsibilities, the I-RED Board of Directors set about mimicking the successful Scope Network. The end result was a total revamp of the old IshuNet™ system, with a specific network within IshuNet™ tailored to divvying up tasks to private contractors in order to ease up core resources for more vital activities. This new network, aptly named the IshuNet™ Task Network, also aims to increase the visibility and influence of I-RED - and by extension, Ishukone and the Caldari State. Thus, it stands as a perfect example of what a mutually beneficial relationship between I-RED and the general public can be.
This will be the most in-depth project under the Syndicate Stability Initiative II©. It will take elements from both regular missions, and the Scope Network challenges. I hope this will be a nice way to enjoy (relatively) easy and fun content to those who seek it. Security and Espionage and Exploration (E&E) task availability will be limited to however much time I can dedicate to EVE, unfortunately; they will also be limited by how much ISK I can afford to lose, as the ships and other task assets will come out of my own wallet. Still, I will try to supply people with a good amount of content. Of course, I will also look into the possibility of providing an official "IshuNet™ Agent" license to those who wish to help out and offer these specific tasks to people. More details on that in the future! Relevant LinksIshuNet™ Task Network InfosheetIshuNet™ Task Network Teaser AnnouncementMailing List
