Octavius Readies for Exorzismus

UUNN Newswire

(Ares Prime)  Emperor Venticus Marius released a brief statement today on the upcoming commemoration of Exorzismus.

Hail Octavius!  On the last day of this month, we commemorate one of our most sacred days — Exorzismus.  It is a day for introspection and atonement.  It is a day to refresh our deepest selves.  A day when we make ourselves stronger, more focused and more dedicated to the Empire.

Viris en Unitis!

This year, as in most years, there are no official commemorations or ceremonies. The Octavius Ministry of Culture reiterated its guidelines for commemoration of Exorzismus :

  • 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 sins required of us in the past years are burned Public bonfires are encouraged. The burning of any homes or buildings is strongly discouraged. While bonfires on out 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, and kind of public chatter should be left to the lesser factions. WE should remain silent on those venues.

Octavius Warns that Day of Silence and Atonement is Not a Day of Weakness

On 116.10.31 the Empires of Octavius will once again take a day to reflect and atone.  Exorzismus, which is celebrated on the last day in October each year, is typically observed through fasting, atonement and silence.

While there are no official celebrations or events, there are many ancient traditions.  Octavius officials warn that pilots from other factions should not view this day of silence and atonement as a day of complacency, as none of the Exorzismus traditions preclude the pilots of Octavius from aggressively defending their space from outside attacks.

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.

Octavian Exorzismus Holiday is All About Atonement

by Kedra Brenari

Octavius Core Station – This Friday, 114.10.31, Octavians throughout space commemorate Exorzismus. It is a called a “holiday” but might be better termed a “Day of Atonement.” Traditionally it is a day when the warriors of Octavius call to mind some of the questionable things they may have been called-upon to do in battle over the past year. They remember … and then they forgive themselves – in order to be unburdened as they prepare for a new year of battle.

This year, as in most years, there are no official commemorations or ceremonies. The Octavius Ministry of Culture released the following Exorzismus commemoration guidelines from Emperor Cineon:

  • 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 sins required of us in the past years are burned Public bonfires are encouraged. The burning of any homes or buildings is strongly discouraged.
