Emerging Protectors In Civilisation (EPiC) Group

“For those who can't protect themselves.”

The EPiC Group is a secretive band of professional soldiers who fight “For the Greater Good of All” and lead by a man known as the Elephant.


The EPiC group started as a joint venture in YE30 between seven disillusioned, jaded and retired IPG & SAINT veterans who were fed up with the political dogma and propaganda fed to them. After some talks, they suspended their differences and resolved to make something out of it. Something beneficial for all instead of one.

This lead them to initially present themselves as a band of mercenaries who were looking to form a greater alliance by recruiting smaller crews. The missions executed by each of the recruited crews were generally benevolent in intention, and were reasonably well paid for, causing few complaints amongst the recruited crews. They never revealed the details their former selves to those recruited, and insisted on being known by the recruits as heavily-armed beneficiaries who were well trained in their time. The organisation does not take any credit for the missions given, and instead gives all the credit to the crew, which gives the organisation a tiny profile on the public radar.

Recently, they've been scouting for new talent as tensions flare throughout the universe more than ever…


Underlying Policies

  • Racial and Political Discrimination amongst the soldiers and towards others is unprofessional, and will see you get fired.
  • Jobs and Missions submitted to us are reviewed thoroughly by our panel of ethicists. If the benefits of the outcome for the parties involved does not outweigh what the means entails, the job is turned down.
    • If the mission involves killing someone, it has to be strongly justified with evidence from the submitter.
    • Jobs submitted by Government Agencies (IPG, SAINT and the like) are usually turned down.
  • Be polite out on field, whether your target is Nepleslian, Yamataian, from the UOC, or something else entirely.
  • Do not mention our organisation in public. On the field, you represent yourself and yourself only.
  • Beware of missions operating in Yamataian Space. You can be arrested or fired upon under the Military Centralization Act of YE 28 if you slip up.

Joining E.P.i.C

If you go looking for them, they will not find you. One of the recruitment scouts will find you through searching through public news lines and databases. If the subject and their crew are deemed worthy, they are given an interview and an offer to join.
