(Octavius Core Station) The Octavius Ministry of Culture has released the following statement:
We remind all people of Octavius that this Saturday, 115.10.31, is Exorzismus. On this day we recall and repent for those things we sometimes are called-upon to do as Warriors.
This year, as in most years, there are no official commemorations or ceremonies, but we call on all to remember our traditions:
- This is a day of fasting. Food should not be served at any public establishments. Jump pilots are encouraged to remove all Organic Food and Manufactured Food from Oct Core, Great Pillars and Outpost stations. The drinking of water — as well as any ales, beers or meades brewed in Octavius — is acceptable.
- This is a day of atonement, where the notes listing sins required of us in the past years are often burned Public bonfires. The burning of any homes or buildings is strongly discouraged. While bonfires on our stations cannot be allowed, pilots can join together to heat up a roid until it turns blue to symbolically enjoy its “fire” within.
- This is a day of silence. While we do speak among our clan mates and friends, any kind of public chatter should be left to the lesser factions. WE should remain silent on those venues.
