A few OOC questions
As I am trying to organize a semi-RP event around the election of Miss Eve, I'd like to know what would be PIE position about such an event? Hostile, indifferent or favorable?
Anything is acceptable of course but in the case PIE see this with a good eye maybe you would like to organize the election or be part of the jury of Miss Amarr (and the amarr regions) yourselves?
Also I'd like to know which regions of the Amarr empire are suitable for regional Miss elections. Tash Murkon, Kor Azor and Domain, maybe Throne Worlds and Kador? Devoid is a bit empty but it can be done if it is taken in charge. Am I missing other regions?
Another question, would a Miss Khanid cause problem with Amarr loyalists? I don't know the details of Amarr politics. But I thought if a Miss Amarr needs to enter the contest against a Miss Minmattar why not a Miss Khanid? And maybe a Miss Amattar could enter the contest too .
Sorry to bother you with such foolish questions when you have to handle very important matters and thank you in advance for any input you could bring
Hello Falbala, thanks for dropping by
I'll try to address your questions as best I can, but im not really a diplomat so you'll have to remember that my views are my own and not those of PIE. Im sure someone else will let you know the official PIE stance regarding your questions later, unless I happen to hit the nail on the head
First of all, I would think a beauty contest would not sit well with the conservative elements of Amarr society at all. Being one of the more liberal minded directors of PIE (even though it might not always seem that way hehe) I'd probably leave your event be, and consider it a source of amusement for the masses.
There is a religious aspect to this as well though. Vanity is by many considered a sin, you have to keep in mind the theocratic nature of the Empire. Thus a gallentean candidate in for example the Kor-Azor region, showing off considerable cleavage (undue exposure of flesh is another near heretical thing in our wonderful Empire), winning the competition, would most probably disgust us traditionalists no end. A pious looking Amarrian lady however, might even earn the contest a comment of approval etc etc..
As to your questions....
PIE would, as a corporation, take up an indifferent stance regarding your event. Individual members would have the 'freedom' to partake, though they would have to thread very carefully indeed
That means that PIE would not take it upon itself to organise the 'Amarr branch' of your contest, hehe. Remember that we are a military organisation, and we have enemies aplenty to keep us occupied most of the time. Im sure though, that some of our more 'hot blooded' members (and then especially some of our incredibly charismatic Ni-Kunnis) would not object to sitting on your jury, if the contest itself isnt too much of an ethical issue
As for which regions would be the most 'suitable' for your competition, I guess that actually comes down to which are the most populated really. Domain, Tash-Murkon, Kor-Azor, Genesis and Kador would be your best bet. Yulai is actually part of the Genesis region, would you believe it, if not under Amarr rule (as it should be, we need to clean up that pit)!
If your contest is empire spanning, then I guess its up to you to decide on which 'states' should enter the contest. Personally I'd say why not, as it would make the whole affair a lot more interesting politically
I can allready imagine the Amarr contest, with Hardin oozing his usual charisma, winking to one of the contestants as he piously asks: 'Which part of the scriptures is your favorite?'
No Amarrian would participate in such a vile contest of Vanity without condemning their souls to Eternal Damnation.
Although I dont doubt some of the more opportunistic Amarrians wouldnt mind showing off their slave stock and by having their slaves winning this contest the value of their breeding stock would go sky high.
By all means, have this contest. The moral dilemmas for promoting slavery will be all yours.
I love being evil!
I don't know much about this contest's aims, but I think a Miss Amarr would be easy to find. Not a gallentean glamoupuss or minmatar amazon, but as Gaius suggested a truly pious young Amarrian girl (or ni-kunni, or maybe they get their own entry...that would cause some ruckus!) whose beauty lies in her love of God and her empire. I'm sure an individual so filled with the goodness of God would be blessed with charm, grace and physical beauty too.
But entry to any bikini contest would be RIGHT out.
Also, lets please remember, its a lot more sexy to cover up and let the imagination play its games than to bear all and end the story in an instant...not that i'm thinking about young girls in that way looks around for inquisition
And lallara, this would not be about vanity, it would be a chance to show that amarrians truly are superior.
Oh the IG aim is to make money with advertising .
The OOC reasons are because when I started this game in late 2003 there was an event in Bourynes with Eve Radio I think and I was amazed to see such a thing in game.
Also it is a good opportunity to make corps of the same region meet each others, some place else than asteroids belts^^, this is why it is only semi-RP since newbies and non RP corps should be associated with it.
If someone reading this forum is interested to run the Amarr part let me know, I would prefer not being obliged to use an alt to do this, and with a Gallente character the Caldari and Amarr parts of the event are not likely to be successful.
Thank you all for your comments, Lallara I am sure you would be the best to organize a Miss Ammattar event .
I think this might not be a bad idea at the moment. Due to circumstances it might be good to organise events that keep our youngsters minds occupied...
OOC: Maybe it would be interesting to get a jury that's part RP people and part non-RP. One or 2 people from a RP in a jury of 5 or 6 or something like that. I think it will liven things up a little, but not be all politics.
OOC2: Can I be a jury in the imperial province of Heimatar? Would be fun looking at the minmatar whenches and mistake beauty for slave qualities once in a while
OOC3: Ask Discorporation for the jury. There's no good jury without the cranky one that doesn't like anything he sees.
A Miss Eve competition is uneccesary - Siobahn would win it anyway.
Hey, don't be so sure about it Rodj. I think Lutita Manos looks better
