My fellow brave and righteous Amarr I regret to inform you that during my last sojourn to the wilds of the of lawless space I incurred significant damage to my ship, including the communications array, thrusters and warp-drive. As of today I was able to jury-rig the com-link to broadcast this one-way signal. I apologize for any confusion or concern my absence has caused.
In summary, my return to Amarr space could very well take another 48 hours. Do not be concerned, I have more than enough rations and Sarum brandy to keep me quite satisfied for the duration of my unexpectedly extended trip. I trust all will be well in my absence.
For the Glory of Empire and Emperor.
For the Honor of PIE.

P.S. Someone will need to discipline my slaves in my absence.
