[EMPIRE] [INDEPENDENT] Join the Aisling Duval community (or one of her many groups and squadrons)

Greetings Commanders,

My past few posts have been zoomed in on Aisling’s Powerplay efforts because I feel like explaining some of the “hidden” events going on just out of view helps players realize that Powerplay isn’t dead. It’s alive and kicking in a fun-yet-dysfunctional kind of way. But, Powerplay is only one aspect of the Aisling Duval community and I thought I’d expend a few words on the many varied and interesting things her players bring to the table.

Love the Players, Love the Game

One way to think about the structure of AD is to think about it as a confederation of players and player groups: Squadrons, groups with in-game factions, independent commanders, etc. We all come together, sometimes with very different ideas of what the power represents, and collaborate toward achieving various goals. Those can be Powerplay activities like fortifying AD Control Systems or Opposing the expansions of enemy powers. They can also be bounty hunting, warring in combat zones, running missions, or doing trade in key systems to support minor factions that are favorable to the Princess’ economy. Explorers with billions in data routinely return to the power and distribute their data across multiple factions for the benefit of AD’s background simulation objectives. We’ve got pirates, xeno hunters, explorers, traders, bounty hunters, PvPers, and those weird ones who spend more time writing about the game than playing it. The community supporting AD has been largely stable and growth-oriented for the last five years and is always striving to be inclusive and constructive. Whether you join AD as an independent commander or join one of the many groups and squadrons supporting the Princess, you’ll find there are many ways to participate and many kinds of participants.

So, this is my call for commanders to join Aisling Duval. We’re players supporting a power, but we’re also much more than that. You can join the organized players supporting the Princess on our Discord (yes, we soft launched an official Aisling Duval Communications discord and it’s grown quite quickly) or, if you prefer something a bit more “workplace,” join our Slack. Membership is restricted to players who can show via screenshots that they are pledged to AD.

About those groups...

Or, you can join one of our many active player groups and squadrons. Aisling Duval is home to some of the most storied groups and squadrons in Elite: Dangerous. Several were formed before Powerplay was even announced and continue to be active today. While this list is by no means exhaustive, I’d like to highlight a few here.

1ST GALACTIC LINE OF DEFENSE - 1GLD

This has been an active player group within the Aisling Duval community since 3304, they are keen on protecting our lovely princess and her interests within the galaxy.

Through BGS and PowerPlay, they hold over 20 systems for our princess and protect and influence much more in their AOR. Their HQ's is in Menguru, Schoening Orbital.

They are also responsible for protecting star cluster HIP 97196 with all it‘s systems against everybody who dares to try to put our princess’s bonus at danger.

AISLINGS ANGELS

Aisling’s Angels (ANGL) is one of the biggest AD pledge squadrons out there, and we pride ourselves on being a warm, friendly, welcoming place to learn the game with each others’ help and have a lot of fun along the way. With over 20 star systems we manage directly or indirectly, and a recent shiny gold medal for powerplay, we do a lot in game for the commanders that want to help Our Lady’s mission to rid the galaxy of slavery in all its forms, and to strive for equality and government for the people. We support a caring leader, and with all we accomplish, we try to keep that caring focus in all our interactions, even when we are blowing up ships by the dozen in Conflict Zones (you know, for freedom).
For those who prefer exploration, engineering, or just the best way to make some credits, we have multiple channels to discuss those efforts filled with lots of helpful commanders.
Founded to serve the Princess before Powerplay even began and with deep roots in E:D’s lore, Aisling’s Angels are a diverse group of commanders dedicated to Aisling’s vision of a more humane empire. From their home system of Chona to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, Angels can be found spreading the Princess’ light everywhere.
We like to screen people through our discord, so in addition to applying in game please drop by there and read our code of conduct and introduce yourselves! https://discordapp.com/invite/7FGJBsm
LANGUAGE: Predominantly English with many other languages represented.
FOCUS: Powerplay, BGS, Exploration, and just about everything else.

PRISMATIC IMPERIUM

The Prismatic Imperium (PI, or PRI - ingame PRIM) is an Imperial faction aligned with the stated goals of Aisling Duval. PI is responsible for the only official lore-embedded way to emancipate slaves in Elite Dangerous and PI as a whole stands against slavery and narcotics and ban the trade of such commodities. It calls Cubeo (Cubeo III) its home and controls the system. The primary interest of the PI is to establish Cubeo as a prosperous paradise and a shining example of the ingenuity and generosity of Imperial Society where progressives and traditionalists work in unity for the benefit of all. PI has players engaging in all kinds of activities, albeit our most defining aspect is our lore and roleplay. Despite RP being completely optional it makes up a lot of our group and our website features additional opportunities like virtual currencies, markets, and character profiles.

If this sounds interesting, check out our website.
Platform: Primarily PC. Others are welcome as well but the majority plays on PC. Our Discord is quite an essential part of our group.
Main Focus: RP, PvE, BGS, Powerplay, Exploration, and other casual activities

Hey there CMDRs looking at this thread. CMDR Quade has blessed the AD community with a nice community writeup (once again), going into some nice details about the current state of AD powerplay. He does that regularly and we decided to link it here as well.
