A while back, Hilen Tukoss, the famous NPC Wormhole researcher, went missing and was found dead by some plucky Capsuleers, who refuse to hand over the body.
So far, cool, no problem.
Then it gets interesting. CONCORD Directive Enforcement Department puts a 40+ PLEX bounty on their heads and threatens to trash their standings with all highsec factions (including setting their sec status -10.0) if they don’t cough up the corpse.
I’m not au fait with the state of in-game roleplaying events in other MMOs but this seems pretty out there.
Seems that BRAVE has resolved it’s leadership spill by initiating a counter spill to restore the old executor corporation.
I guess that’s evidence that an external alliance wasn’t responsible for the destabilisation, since you’d expect them to retain control and keep leeching members away.
Of course, there remains the possibility that there was someone pulling the strings, who decided to stop in order to keep BRAVE going rather than exsanguinate them (or was stopped by a rival spy ring), but that kind of thinking will just send you mad so let’s leave that alone.
