- Application and Acceptance
Alexylva Paradox is now activly recruiting new members. We will review and accept applications on a case by case basis, however vetting can take up to or even more than a week. This process is intentionaly slow and detailed to protect the safety and assets of our memebers.
life in unlike any other experience in New Eden. Constant shifting
access to new systems, new opportunities, and new threats requires
discipline, vigilence, and at least a hint of paranoia.
- Independence - we look out for our own and are not beholden to any empire or coalition. We get to write our own story in New Eden.
- Content Opportunities - combat engagement, lucrative resources, and capsuleer interaction are all just a few scans away. This is great for even the most time conscious capsuleers who find that they have limited time to devote to their pod. ALXVP has no participation time or rental requirements.
- Close Knit
Team - you are not a callsign in a sea of pods here. We work very
closely with eachother to benefit all. Voice comms and corporate
channels are often active and good natured. Destructive attitudes and
behavior find no place here.
- Education - we learn from eachother and are happy to teach and include.
- OppSec - our safety and security depend on our enemies knowing as little about our assets and location as possible. This means that our members are expected to guard such knowledge from public channels, un-aligned corporations, and unsecure voice coms. Even awareness of your existence in a w-space local channel is dangerous intel for our enemies.
- Risk - w-space is -1.0 security space with it's own set of 'guidelines' and absolutely no quarter given. General practice is 'shoot first, shoot second, loot, then shoot again to clear the wreck.' Questions are optional. This means that you are likely to lose assets far more easily than in high sec or protected null sec. It is safe to assume there is a cloaked Stratios or Proteus always about to attack you. This is normal in w-space.
- 'Paranoia' - due to the risks listed above, most w-space residents develop a healthy paranoia about anyone they encounter. Trust is hard earned and the true currency w-space. Sudden but inevitable betrayal often visits those who trust too easily.
- Shifting Universe - our entrances and exits are never the same from one day to the next. This can mean long stretches between easy access to trade hubs or specific k-space locations.
- Self-driven Content - limited resources in Origin mean that if you want or need more content, you may need to spend some time scanning down neighboring wormholes and confirming they are safe to exploit.

There is a runaway trolley barreling down the railway tracks. Ahead, on the tracks, there are five people tied up and unable to move. The trolley is headed straight for them. You are standing some distance off in the train yard, next to a lever. If you pull this lever, the trolley will switch to a different set of tracks. Unfortunately, you notice that there is one person on the side track. You have two options: (1) Do nothing, and the trolley kills the five people on the main track. (2) Pull the lever, diverting the trolley onto the side track where it will kill one person. Which is the correct choice?
Heinz's wife was near death, and her only hope was a drug that had been discovered by a pharmacist who was selling it for an exorbitant price. The drug cost $20,000 to make, and the pharmacist was selling it for $200,000. Heinz could only raise $50,000 and insurance wouldn't make up the difference. He offered what he had to the pharmacist, and when his offer was rejected, Heinz said he would pay the rest later. Still the pharmacist refused. In desperation, Heinz considered stealing the drug. Would it be wrong for him to do that?
Why Do you wish to join the Alexylva Paradox?: Please explain as clearly as possible.

If your Formal Application meets our standards, you may be invited onto our Voice Communications Network [TeamSpeak] for an interview with one or more of our Board of Coordinators. It is not uncommon for some members to be included so that both you and we can get a better idea for how you may fit with our current membership. This interview is often informal in nature.
