(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.
