New PC Exploration Squadron

7726: The Fatherhood - Pioneers

With the increasing growth in members in our PC squadron, we have now implemented a second squadron dedicated to explorers: The Fatherhood – Pioneers.

We are encouraging all members currently in the main PC squadron who are mostly explorers to leave and join this squadron. There are two reasons for this:

  1. To consolidate all of our PC explorers into a single community;
  2. To create space in our main squadron to allow new members to join and to benefit from the experience and knowledge of our existing members.

Building a presence in Colonia

In conjunction with the new squadron, we are also looking to build a community of The Fatherhood members out in Colonia. Not only is Colonia an excellent staging post for deep galactic exploration, but as an organisation, The Fatherhood is keen to start contributing in a positive way to the development of this small but important community.

To this effect, Robardin Rock has been selected as the Colonia base of operations for the Pioneers, and I myself have started out on the 22kly journey to our new home. I look forward to seeing some of you there!

 

Merchandise!

We are delighted to announce a new range of merchandise is now available! Mugs, t-shirts, water bottles – check out our new Merchandise page for more details.

One Year in Hajangai…and Merchandise!

Hajangai...our home for a year!

On 26th April 3304, The Fatherhood arrived in Hajangai. This was a milestone day: finally, The Fatherhood had somewhere that it could call home. After coming to *ahem* agreements with the other factions in the system, The Fatherhood secured control of the system, and with it the stations Lee Orbital and Schwann Port.

Over these past 12 months, we have gone from strength-to-strength, and as our way of saying thank you, we have a special treat for our members and supporters…

Merchandise!

Who wouldn’t want a personalised The Fatherhood mug? Or a t-shirt?

We’ve secured a supplier for some mighty fine personalised merchandise. More details can be found on our new merchandise page!

SuRviVe – PC and XBox Results

On Saturday 30th April 3305, the inaugral PC and XBox SuRviVe events were held. Protected by just the hull and shields of their SRV, this event was a test of driving skill, with victory coming to those who inflicted maximum damage to their opponent, while avoid costly damage from the various terrain hazards.

Operation #DeliverDuctTape – Weil Station, Kunuvii

The next station targeted for repair under Operation #DeliverDuctTape by The Fatherhood has been announced: Weil Station in the Kunuvii system.

At just over 44ly from Hajangai, we are calling on all members of The Fatherhood to haul much-needed materials to facilitate repairs.

 

Stafford Terminal – all materials delivered!

It is with great pride that we can announce that 100% of the materials required by Stafford Terminal have been delivered!

This has been an overwhelming show of support by members of The Fatherhood, for which we are extremely grateful. The repairs can now commence, and we look forward to the station changing status to fully operational on Thursday 14th March 3305.

Given the support Operation #DeliverDuctTape has received, The Fatherhood is planning to provide ongoing support to Operation IDA by always having a nominated station that members can choose to support.

#SuRviVe Announced!

The Fatherhood is pleased to announce that we will soon be hosting our inaugural SuRviVe event on a planet in our very own LHS 197.

What is SuRviVe?

It’s a demolition derby. In SRVs!

The rules are simple:

  1. No shields
  2. No weapons
  3. 2 SRV’s per round
  4. Last CMDR standing, wins.

Depending on the number of CMDR’s signed up on each platform, there will be a number of qualifying rounds before a sudden death final.

There will be a winners prize for each platform of a paint pack of your choosing (eg: predator, galvanized paint)

The event will be held over the last weekend in March over 1 or 2 days (most likely Fri/Sat) at approximately 22:00 server time (UTC) depending on the number and location of participants.

Support Operation IDA

Today, The Fatherhood has announced a new initiative to support the station repair work being coordinated by Operation IDA.

Thargoid incursions are taking place throughout the Bubble, and one of the affected systems – Flech – lies very close to The Fatherhood space. The damage done to Stafford Terminal is causing ripples throughout this part of space, and so The Fatherhood is calling upon its members to contribute towards the repair efforts.

Current estimates place the materials requirements at 620,000 tonnes.

For members of The Fatherhood, a specific Inara mission can be found here.
