About Signal Cartel

Signal Cartel [1420.] is a corp designed from the ground up for peaceful explorers. We are based in Thera and proud to be part of the EvE-Scout Enclave. Dedicated to the highest ideals of exploration, our corp culture is one of wanderlust, camaraderie, helpfulness, respectful behavior, and peaceful intent. We seek to provide our members with a friendly, nurturing home that includes great benefits and opportunities for learning, fun, and profit.

Corp Credo

One of the most important defining characteristics of our corp is the credo we have adopted:

Signal Cartel is a service corporation to all of New Eden. In this role, members are encouraged to treat all players with respect regardless of affiliation. In challenging situations, our goal is to look for a graceful resolution and set an example of dignity and friendship through our actions.

We embrace the attitude of a true explorer: we are friendly to others in our travels, neutral and never initiating aggression, and endeavoring at all times be perceived by the New Eden community as a non-threat. Although we never intentionally seek to harm, we may defend our friends and our ships. In suffering losses, we respond with good cheer and shed no tears. In this way, we aim to be recognized and respected by all across the cluster and left in peace to do our work.

Among our own ranks and with others, we are patient and generous with knowledge, ideas, and experiences. We foster a mentoring culture by answering questions, freely sharing experiences and learning resources, and when possible offering rookies one-on-one tutoring.

Specifically prohibited with your in-alliance character: Piracy, baiting, or scamming; initiating aggression on other players’ ships, pods, or deployed structures; sovereignty interference; participating in NPSI fleets; aggressive actions in support of PvP fleets including boosts, cynos, bumping, or target intel; use of mobile siphons; corp or other theft; placing bounties. Note: Ships, wrecks and drones abandoned in space are considered salvage and may be harvested. Abandoned ships may not be destroyed.

“Why Do You Hate PvP?!”

We don’t! We understand that EvE is a PvP game. We love PvP and many if not most Signal Cartel members enjoy PvP on other characters in other corps. However, Signal Cartel has the goal of remaining neutral to everyone in New Eden in keeping with the overarching goals and programs of our alliance, EvE-Scout Enclave. Does this mean you can’t shoot back if you are attacked? Not at all…our members are permitted to defend themselves and each other. We simply prohibit our members from initiating any acts of PvP aggression.

Just because we don’t PvP doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun by fielding our trademarked Hugs Fleets or NPHI Fleets

Corp Life

Signal Cartel members tend to be solo wanderers, opportunistically exploring New Eden far and wide to discover its secrets, wonders, and buried (or abandoned) treasure. Yet we are all connected by the ideals behind our corp credo which encourage open communication, cooperation, helpfulness, and a generous spirit. Learn more about corp life and joining here.

To aid newer players who aspire to that lifestyle, we offer personal ad-hoc mentoring and a more structured Explorer’s School curriculum on a wide range of topics of specific interest to explorers (including the basics a new player needs to learn to fit their ships and navigate smartly).

We organize regular group Expeditions to famous and lesser-known landmarks and sights, which give participants a chance to practice fleet, piloting, and exploration skills as well as experience first-hand places that connect to the lore and history of New Eden.

We are associated with the wider network of EvE-Scout scouts, some of whom many be in corp but many of whom scout from within the ranks of other corps.
