A guide to the 'Deliverance Region' including Amarrian Providence


There are a number of key points which neutrals entering Providence and the Deliverance area should remember:

1) NRDS

Providence operates on a NRDS (Not Red Don't Shoot) system. That means neutrals can operate in our area and not be shot by either the space holding alliances or by other neutrals. We do however recommend that all 'neutrals' who wish to enter Providence to take advantage of its multiple pleasures should contact a CVA diplomat to ensure that they are not on the CVA KOS list.

The CVA KOS list is a huge beast which has existed for almost 5 years. Anyone who has shot at CVA or other residents of Providence get added to the list and never get removed unless a diplomatic approach is made and repentance made (and sometimes reparations paid). The CVA KOS list is quite extensive and includes most of the other 0.0 alliances as they operate under NBSI (Not Blue Shoot It) principles which are outlawed in Providence. Basically

It is important that 'neutrals' entering Providence do check their status before they enter Providence because CVA adds entire corporations and alliances to the KOS list due to the infringements of individual members. The other factor to remember is the 'age' of the list - some individuals corporations and alliances who enter Providence may be KOS for transgressions they have long since forgotten and may not be aware that they are KOS.

While the CVA does sometimes contact corporation/alliance leadership to inform them that they have become KOS to us, we do not have the diplomatic capacity to do this on a regular basis. It is therefore the responsibility of anyone who wishes to operate in Providence to check their own status before they arrive. As we do not impose charges or 'rent' on people using our space - and also provide an element of protection and other services - we think this is pretty fair deal.

2) Help us to help you

While the CVA and our allies in Providence - such as s3verance, Libertas Fidelitas (LFA), Aegis Militia, Paxton Federation, Cold Steel and many other friendly individuals, corporations and alliances - do our utmost to keep the space clear of raiders we can never provide 100% guarantee of safety in our space. Unlike most of 0.0 neutrals in Providence do enjoy a lot of security however they do still need to pay attention to their local environment and the warnings that are posted in various local 'intel' channels.

The CVA and friends cannot be everywhere at once and we therefore encourage local neutrals to play an active role in their own defence. This makes the regions safer for all of us and allows CVA to concentrate on more serious threats and larger raids.

3) Standings

With a few exceptions the CVA generally does not set neutral corporations/alliances blue. As we operate NRDS there is no point coming to us and asking for 'blue' standings. If you are neutral we will leave you alone.

4) Intel channels

There are various intel channels operating in the CVA's Deliverance region covering Lower-Domain & Derelik low-sec and also Providence. Access to these channels will be granted to neutrals after they have spent some 'well-behaved' time in the region. These channel are purely reserved for reporting hostiles. They are not to be used for general chat. In general these channels work well and the majority of reds who enter our space are reported swiftly. Please pay attention to them and don't give hostiles cheap kills. It is also important that you contribute if hostiles enter your system. If you can safely provide shiptypes in addition to numbers then so much the better.

We KNOW that these channel are infiltrated by hostiles so NEVER use these channels for the formation of gangs or reporting 'friendly' gang movements. The CVA reserves the right to remove access from anyone who abuses their access.

If you have been attacked and need help then ensure that you report this accurately. We need to know the numbers of attackers, their ships (if possible) and the EXACT location of the fight. That means Planet/Belt number. The CVA will not (nor does it expect others) rush to your aid if the intel provided is lacking as in many cases that simply provides the hostiles with more kills.

And remember it is not possible for any space holding alliance to be everywhere at once. If you do get ganked by a random pirate or roving raid do not blame CVA or our allies for not protecting you when in 95% of EVE 0.0 the space holding alliance would be trying to gank you themselves - rather than letting you mine/NPC and trade to your hearts content!

5) Don't be an idiot

While the CVA and friends generally welcome all pilots who obey our NRDS rules to Providence we do reserve the right to KOS people who act like complete twats in our space. This is a rarely used sanction but the following behaviours can result in KOS in Providence:

- Can flipping
- Scamming or exploiting
- Constant local smack (against other neutrals or our enemies)
- Consistently stirring trouble between other residents
- Generally behaving like an idiot on a regular basis
- Disrespecting the Amarr Empire (the CVA is an Amarrian roleplay alliance so do not expect us to look favourably on people who consistently abuse their freedom to use of our space to verbally attack the Amarrian Empire)

Fortunately these sanctions are only occasionally applied - but don't try and test us!

6) Friendly fire

While the CVA and friends do seek to avoid shooting neutrals occasionally friendly fire does occur - particularly during combat situations where hostiles 'posing' as neutrals may be present. We (or our allies) normally issue compensation to any neutral pilots killed in error and often mediate disputes between other residents.

However this 'compensation' does not apply if we have already instructed the 'neutral' to leave the scene of battle. Many hostiles do use neutral alts to watch fleets. We normally give these 'neutrals' one warning to leave the area (on the assumption that they could really be innocent neutrals). However if such warnings are not followed then we will consider them a legitimate target.

We would also like to state that simply being a member of one of the NPC corps does not guarantee safety in Providence as we will take past associations/behaviour into account. Once again we advise that you contact a CVA diplomat if you want to confirm your KOS status one way or the other.

In addition, where you are an individual (or member of a corp/alliance) which has just negotiated to come off the CVA KOS list we suggest that you do not operate in Providence or the Deliverance area for at least 24 hours and would even suggest that you avoid the area for up to 48 hours after the agreement. The reason for this is that the news of the change in standings needs to trickle down to all the other friendly alliances/neutrals operating in the area (so they can change their own standings) and this process is not always instantaneous. We cannot accept responsibility or offer compensation for 'friendly fire' incidents within that time period.

7) Contacting CVA

If you would like to confirm your KOS status or find out who to contact regarding access to Providence intel channels then join the channel 'CVA-Diplo' and read the Message of the Day (MOTD). Once your enquiry has been answered please leave the channel. Please bear in mind that our diplomats are busy people who are also trying to have fun playing this game of internet spaceships. In general they respond quickly but occasionally you may have to wait. Patience as we all know is an Amarrian virtue!

Cool Forums & Local
If, as sometimes happens, an accident does occurs and you are wrongly attacked by either CVA or other residents of Providence DO NOT run to the EVE-O (or any other) forums to attack CVA or our system. That is a sure way of ending on the KOS list permanently and does not help get the issue resolved. Instead contact one of our diplomats and the incident will be investigated fairly - and, if necessary, compensation paid. If you are still unhappy with the outcome then feel free to attack us publicly - we will of course put our side of the story!

Many neutrals who come to Providence and enjoy our open space become quite attached to the area and its protectors, sometimes to the point where they will start smacking CVA's enemies either in local or on public forums. The CVA does not approve of this. Our own members are not banned from using public forums however, apart from certain diplomats, they are encouraged not to do so and they are in particular encouraged to not smack or abuse our enemies. Smack talking/posting of CVA enemies does not help build stronger relations with CVA and if persistently engaged in can lead to you being classified as KOS under our 'Don't be an idiot' rules above.

9) More informations
We would highly recommend that anyone wishing to operate in The Deliverance area should visit the following website first: http://www.cva-eve.org/ then the ingame channel 'CVA-Diplo' and read the MOTD. Posted below is a FAQ answering some of the common questions about 'Deliverance', CVA and Amarrian Providence. Some of this is covered above but you may find it of use:
