Storyline courier mission

Agent chat

The Federal Talent Showcase is upon us, that time of year where all the artists and “artists” come out of hiding and shove the products of the past year in our faces. TransStellar Shipping is playing host to a fashion show and we need someone to pick up the models and fashionistas from Ridoner VI - Moon 1 - Republic Parliament Bureau. You can kind of guess what they're like – a normal pilot just isn't good enough for them, so I have to find a capsuleer I think is level-headed enough to not vent cargo into space if they get too annoying. I know you can handle it, it's not like you have to speak with them face to face, anyway.

Gallente Haute Couture

In a culture as materialistic and appearance-conscious as the Gallente, the ability to stay on the bleeding edge is a valuable asset. “Clothes,” fashion critic Marko Envaumier said in a well-known interview with the Scope, “are an outward expression of man's inner nature and outlook toward life. Professional secretaries study fashion alongside the other office skills ... to learn to gauge the worth of both potential clients and employees for the companies that hire them. Next time you walk into an office, remember that the boy or girl behind the desk is checking your tailoring.”

Large Group of Mannar Textile Institute International Representatives

Mannar, one of the oldest members of the Federation, has always had a strong influence on Gallente style and trendsetting. Much of the eccentric tailoring favored by society's elite and decried as immodest and inappropriate by the other empires has its roots in pre-Federation Mannar culture, which included different concepts of modesty and etiquette. Massive hairstyles and elaborate body- and face-painting still feature prominently in addition to semi-opaque fabrics which respond to a variety of programmable stimuli.

Super ! now we know the context for the Mannar Textile Institute.


Now, to find the context for these people:

Group of Coriault Couture Collective Display Employees
Across the broad sweep of New Eden, there is no constellation closer to the forefront of fashion than Coriault. The Crux constellation, which includes Luminaire and Oursulaert, may be the heart of the Federation´s consumer culture, but Coriault is home to the fashion-houses of Auvergne and Vylade, and in particular the Dodixie-based Maison Nephére which has provided finery exclusively for the Federation presidents and their partners for well over a century.
In order to improve their visibility in the glare of the Federation´s heart, dozens of Coriault houses merged under the Coriault Couture Collective label. Each school operates independently, and the styles can vary wildly, but open competition between institutions only occurs when particular contracts are opened to the highest bidder.. The designers frequently model their own work, operating under the philosophy that if they wouldn´t be seen in public in their own work, nobody else should, either
