Kadavr Crimson Guard Opens for business...

Nashh pins the rusty badge on Maax's flight suit then walks out of the office towards the hanger, Maax follows with Anabaric still looking slightly confused.
So guys, so what does it mean to be a director?

Well it doesn't really mean much, you can steal all the money in the kitty, assuming Nashh hasn't spent it all on rum (...again). Downside is if you steal all the money it means I can't keep bribing Scotty to let us stay here after the next time Nashh crash's his ship into the docking ring, then we'll have to move stations (...again) which is a pain, more so for you now because you're a director and have to organise it. There really isn't enough money in the kitty to make it worth while, I think about it often.

Nashh turns the corner and walks out into the hanger, Anabaric holds Maax back for a second.
"I guess the best thing about being a director is that you can scam Nashh out of the rum easier."

Maax laughs and follows Anabaric out into the hanger, Nashh is already searching through a pile of ammunition boxes, muttering something about Kirith, and needing a more rum.
Maax looks over to the otherside of the hanger where Kirith is talking to the new batch of recruits.
"Do you think anyone would care if we vented that side of the hanger to space right now?"
Nashh emerges victoriously from the pile of boxes holding a bottle of rum.
"Found it! actually I think you can do that now, your new access code gives you hanger and container rights in here"
"And that's why being a director is worth it Maax... ...Ah Nashh I see you found my bottle of rum."

I am Gunnery Sergeant KirithKodachi , your senior drill instructor. From now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and last words out of your filthy sewers will be "Sir".
Do you maggots understand that?
Sir, yes Sir.
Bullshit I can't hear you. Sound off like you got a pair!
If you ladies leave my station, if you survive recruit training, you will be a weapon. You will be a minister of death praying for war. But until that day you are pukes. You are the lowest form of life in NewEden. You are not even human fucking beings. You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian shit! Because I am hard, you will not like me. But the more you hate me, the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair. There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on brutors, frogs, squids or relious freaks. Here you are all equally worthless. And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Guard. Do you maggots understand that?

No skill point requirement, 
No pvp skills required.

Kadavr Crimson Guard - What We Are About
Two weeks ago I announced the incorporation of the Kadavr Crimson Guard (aka KCG), a Gallente factional warfare corporation. Now I am going to expand on details of what I envision for this entity.

The goal of the corporation is to participate in the Faction Warfare feature on the side of the Gallente Federation. This means I expect pilots of the KCG to do one or more of the following regularly: plexing, Federal Defense Union missions, or PvP either solo or with members of the Gallente Militia. This does not preclude other activities (exploration, manufacturing, mining, etc) but if you are not doing one of the four above I question why you would bother with this corp.

I do not know how large this corp will grow or how active it will be. Personally, I can commit only to one evening a week (2-3 hours, typically Sunday night), and all I ask of my pilots is a similar level of commitment. Thus pilots joining the KCG will need to be very self-sufficient, however as we are part of the militia they can join militia operations. I encourage such participation as long as you follow the PvP standards at the end of this post.

We do not have skill point requirements, but we do have Gallente Standing requirements in that if adding you to the corporation threatens the corporation with expulsion from the militia we will review all members' standings and take actions from there.

One unique quality of the KCG that other corps do not offer is membership in the private channel for other Kadavr corps; the Kadavr Black Guard (low sec PvP corporation, part of the infamous Shadow Cartel) and the Kadavr Conglomerate (wormhole corp). Membership in KCG does not give you automatic access to either of these other two corps, but you can chat up members and posting good results as part of the KCG will give you some proof you can survive and thrive in low sec (if you need the help).

The Blackguard has discussed having a recruitment corp for a while, from my own background coming through the Heretic-Army I saw how effective this can be, so whilst Kirith may not be as active as he'd like within the new corp there will be a lot of involvement and support from the Blackguard corp at times, you won't be left completely alone. We see the corp as an extension of ourselves, the Crimson guard is a place for new pilots to cut their teeth in combat, learn some skills within NewEden, all whilst wearing the Kadavr brand. Welcome to the family.
