|This is merely a provisional inquiry into whether the Syndicate would be willing to assist in a possible upcoming conflict. At this point, no war declaration has been issued by the Directive and no decision has been made on whether one will be issued. However, in anticipation of the possibility, I am looking into it.
In recent weeks, the corporation known as Beyond Divinity Inc (BYDI), which claims to be mercenaries, has been harassing miners and other non-combat pilots in Oimmo and the rest of the Mito constellation, as well as elsewhere in Caldari space, stealing ore simply to provoke combat in which they have an overwhelming advantage. Yesterday, PEZCO, a member of the Directive's informal coalition in the constellation, destroyed one of their ships in reprisal, and shortly thereafter received a war declaration from BYDI.
At this point in time, the Directive has pledged any nonmilitary support we can give to PEZCO and is discussing the possibility of entering the war on PEZCO's behalf. As you expressed some interest in assisting us with antipirate operations in the region, and you have engaged in similar actions before, I am curious whether or not the Syndicate would be interested in joining such a conflict if the Directive joined as well.
