Greetings Commander, you have found the Independent Pilots Consortium's forums!
First and foremost however I would like to say how we operate and what we do as a group, mainly IPC Commanders are tasked with maintaining our home system which has our own minor faction in it, as well as taking part in various operations around the galaxy in defense of the working man that is trying to make their way in the galaxy be it traders, miners or explorers. When joining the IPC we assure you that you will be in an interesting and diverse community of players that enjoy playing together.
As a group we also take on the role of being mercenaries for Commanders of powers that are in need of assistance, mainly we do expansions and protecting capital systems from raiding wings, we do paid work as well as various other tasks pro-bono.
Being mercenaries is something we do on the sides as well as being the good guys of the universe!
