ID: Bounty Hunters Guild
IFF: Bounty Hunters Guild
Tag: Aegis|

The Aegis Initiative was first formed informally in 820 A.S. by John Easom and a few trusted friends in the Bounty Hunters Guild. They were originally a small band of experienced Hunters operating out of the Omega Border Worlds, hunting high-value or dangerous targets in packs. With the depletion of resources in the Houses from multiple on-going wars, there have been greater incentives for the Houses to expand into the Border Worlds, and an increased demand for the security services of experienced pilots to protect such efforts. This band of Hunters, wishing to market themselves to meet this demand, then called themselves the Aegis Initiative, ambitiously proclaiming itself to be a private military company registered with the Bounty Hunters Guild, and started providing security contracts for House activity not only in the Omegas, but also in other Border World sectors as well.

Over time, the Aegis Initiative started to profit immensely from the increase in demand. Hunters that were out of luck in such dangerous regions would observe the success of groups such as the Aegis Initiative, and start to join them and benefit from the pooling of resources and contracts. Eventually, a wealthy investor, Isaiah Steffen, saw potential in the Initiative, and acquired enough shares for him to have co-ownership over Aegis, and accelerated the development of the Initiative's resources and network of contracts. Today, John Easom maintains a position as President of the Aegis Initiative and oversees its day-to-day operations, while Isaiah Steffen has a position as its CEO and as the chairman of its board of directors.

The Aegis Initiative has become a fairly influential subsidiary of the Bounty Hunters Guild. While not a major player in Sirius and Gallic events, the Initiative has wide-reaching influence and presence in every House and the Border Worlds. With veteran military pilots and ex-intelligence officers joining in addition to the typical Bounty Hunter looking for a more stable source of income, the Initiative has been able to expand their operations to include espionage and black ops for House governments and corporations.

While most Bounty Hunters shy away from tricky legal and political issues, the Aegis is not afraid to intervene in such matters, if the price is right. Rumours of corporate ships being attacked in the Border Worlds are not infrequent, and Aegis is a name that comes up in the grapevine often.

"Some Bounty Hunters are alright, I suppose. Others are rotten and will kill anybody if the money is right. Basically, they are assassins that companies hire to kill the criminals we haven't had the chance to apprehend yet." - Constable Zoe Leighton, Bretonia Police, Durham Border Station

Woooooah, about damn time! Good luck, boys, don't forget to ask Werdackel for higher pay rates now that you're going official.

This is inevitably going to trigger overly loyal members but what is the point of going ofl when all of your game activities is just /1/2'ing things for bounties? I have never seen an aegis actually rp ingame with anyone or eventalk to lawfuls, or any of thefun stuff that entails bribery.

Or even seeing the need for any of the ofl perks.

If you’d step out of your paranoia bubble, you’d know. I’m not even going to dignify the rest of the post with a response, as it’s such a low effort bait you should know better, especially after just sitting out on a 30 day ban.

I'd like to stay in my paranoia bubble but to wish you luck with your officialdom

An interesting group indeed, I have dealt with Aegis| in role-play before, and it is indeed remarkable how effective they are.
Best of luck Aegis|, It is a trip to officialdom... enjoy your time!

Personal experience - I thought you guys are also pure /1/2 anonymous faction without any rp individuality, never thought you'd get offended by that, it's just how the community sees you right now - I mean even RP with you is just with a shared account, so is bounty claiming - it's one big anonymous PvP machine

I mean - it's nice that you are trying, you could actually start injecting more individuality and roleplay on top of the license and bb requests - but I doubt you need much of that from a BHG ID to go official - it's a BHG ID after all, what are they gonna do, deny you for focusing on bounty hunting?

Good luck hunters. For the people saying they just /1 /2, you haven't dealt with them enough then, step up your game.

I just speak from experience, maybe they have changed in last few months - but when I see an Aegis snub go on I expect a /1/2, not even making any difference between them followed by 0 MDs and an anonymous HC account claiming for everyone.


Easy fix is to actually start having individual non shared characters to start posting message dumps and stories and biographies frequently after fights if they want to start having actual unique characters the community recognises - then build on that in game - but for BHG ID to get officialdom it might not even be necessary.

to be devil's advocate

what would you request on your official ID, and/or be your first perk?
