Manifesto

Greetings there…

We’re sure if you’ve spent at least 5 minutes around here, you’ve heard or seen words thrown about like:
“The best” — compared to whom and what?
“Fun” — by who’s definition?
“We do it all” — sounds like somebody can’t pick a direction to go in
“Casual AND Hardcore” — how does that work???
“Protection of some poor innocent for the “greater good” — what a crock of Granny’s Peach Tea!!!
And our personal favorite — “we have over 14000 members” — Welcome to the collective Drone #3459-b34. Really??…that upwards mobility is looking closer everyday!!

Now, if ya ready for a reality check; this is what we’re selling.

Yes, we said “SELLING”!
Cause nothing in life is free…and if ya mom or dad told ya otherwise…well..let’s just say…they didn’t want to scar you during your developmental years.

You pretty much have 2 options in everything you do:
Either be the “Seller” or the “Consumer”.
We’ll give ya one guess as to which one is getting paid! — If ya half as smart as you think you are…We should now have your full attention.

What, where, when and how you sell ain’t our concern, as long as the deed is getting done.
We have rules we live by just like most folks..but hear this..morals don’t come before a payday, and it sure don’t keep food in the galley, or fuel in the tanks. You can leave those at Olisar or whatever backwater trade-hub you’ve been trying to find a way off of.

Our creed is simple: You do the job, you get paid!
It not based on rank, it’s based on the job and how you “contribute” to its success!
Bonuses are paid accordingly to the contribution you provided.
The less you do, the less your share of the profits. It’s not quantum physics!

Lastly…
We actually encourage you to seek out new and profitable opportunities. We recognize and reward initiative.

Every voice shall be heard, but the vision shall not waver. Accept this and prosper.
Ignore it and fall to the wayside like so many others.

We encourage “healthy” competition among our ranks. We want that razor’s edge. Be fearsome in all you do, and your foes shall fall before you.

Now..since we like to keep a low profile..the only way to contact us is directly PM’ing the individual that gave you this link.

NO STRINGS ATTACHED
Someone will be in touch.
If you can handle that much. The next set of instructions will be sent to you.

Eventually, if ya lucky, fearless, and a little bit crazy you might make it to a voice meeting, and that my friend, is where everything you want to ask, (and we want to ask) will be done.

Charter

THE FAMILY’S RULES OF EIGHT

1. Never tell the truth when a lie will do.

2. Never tell the same lie twice

3. Don’t be loyal to everyone, but when you are loyal to something, be fiercely loyal, and put a price on it.

4. If you have to do something, you might as well become very good at it.

5. You can’t help someone else, if you can’t help yourself!

6. The safest way to shoot someone, is in the back.

7. If something happens once, it’s coincidence. If it happens twice, it’s happenstance. If it happens three times, somebody’s trying to tell you something.

8. Know when to walk away.

AFFILIATIONS

Kobayashi Logistical Imports & Exports is an exclusive organization.

We want our members to believe in the group and for that reason we expect to be your main organization. Because of the type of activities we are involved in, affiliations with other Star Citizen Organizations are strictly forbidden.

The only exception to this one rule are “approved” affiliations with “purely social” organizations and groups. (Evocati being one of the few)

Contact us for more information.

MORALS IN THE VERSE

The Verse is shaping up to become the sandbox we’ve always dreamed of. Every man or woman can and will craft their own moral code that they stick to. The question remains, where does Kobayashi Logistical Imports & Exports stand on on those morals?

We believe that the on fringe of civilized space where we tend to carry out our work, the rulebook gets left behind in your hanger. You may have precious few moments to make a split-second decision that saves your life, your crew, or your precious (and valuable) cargo. Usually that means shooting first and asking questions later. If that makes us morally gray then so be it, but the “family comes first, always”.

We assist our brothers and sisters. We always strive to further Family interests and influence in the universe.

Our business also adheres to a unbreakable personal “code of conduct” which strictly forbids (by our definition – not someone else’s) trolling and griefing, on the forums AND in-game.

STRUCTURE & HIERARCHY

Our “structure” accommodates a traditional solution for online raids and events but incorporates a way for members to “rise through the ranks” and handle the many challenges that await us in The Verse.

ACCOUNTING, ANALYSIS, APPLIED ENGINEERING, BIOMEDICAL SCIENCE, COMPETITION, RECLAMATION, SECURITY, & TRANSPORT

Kobayashi Logistical Imports & Exports covers a wide range disciplines in Star Citizen. We strive to be fully self-sufficient.

In reality the true occupation of our organization is to “Profit” by any means necessary without the constraints and limitations of any government or societal interference. As such, our focus is anything that is the most expedient in obtaining profit. This means we might be adjusting our focus as a Family now and then.

What it doesn’t mean is that, as a Kobayashi “Family” member, you are restricted to this focus. This choice does however have pros and cons.

We encourage all to seek out new things, avenues of revenue and areas of influence. You are free to play the game however you choose, and in doing so, bring new and profitable opportunities to the Family. This is one of easiest and fastest ways to gain attention, and influence internally within Kobayashi Logistical Imports & Exports.

By asking for a “Family sanction” to pursue a course of action, “The Family” will expect its share and in turn will provide resources and manpower to the cause.

The downside is by branching out on your own, The opposite will occur. You incur any and all costs, along with the risks of your solo venture. Completely without the Family’s support & assets; but you also keep all the profits if successful. Thus you are gambling.

HARDCORE VS CASUAL VS ROLE-PLAY

Kobayashi Logistical Imports & Exports has at its core foundation, a hardcore member base. If you want to be a part of that element there is definitely a place for you among us. We want all members to take the game as seriously as we do.

That said, we expect that some may find us attractive, but be more casual gamers. While they most definitely are not excluded, they must meet our minimum activity requirements without exception.

Our smallest population will probably be those who are in it purely for role-playing, but you will find, even that aspect has its place in our organization, is welcomed, and encouraged.

Regardless, we expect all our members to commit to each other and the group.

MEMBER ACTIVITY

Star Citizen is quite a distance from full release, so we’ve given our members some slack.

This policy remains fluid and will change depending upon content released.

Current projections, place the expected minimum activity for the most casual of player to be a combination of 16 hours over a 1 month period PLUS at least 1 planned Org operation per month.

Contact us for more information.

ORG TAXATION

As a rule, we are firmly and totally against it.

We can only base ourselves on how the persistent universe will turn out; but right now it appears that as an organization you will be able to obtain different assets ranging from ships to hangars to mining equipment and so forth.

In order for our organization to be competitive we will be contributing as a team to acquire certain assets.

Many other MMORPG’s allow a guild to tax their members in various ways. In Star Wars Galaxies this was an automated deduction off of your character’s game-bank account. In World of Warcraft this was a small amount of extra gold that you gained which went to the guild bank.

We won’t we doing any of that.

We do however have a solid plan in place to generate funding for the org and its members.

Contact us for more information.

COMMUNICATIONS

We use Discord as our current communication systems. This may expand to Teamspeak or other VOIP as needed.
The reason is, as much fun as typing can be, it can never beat speaking to someone.

Leave the texting on your mobile phones and come interact through voice. Trust us, it makes all the difference!

RECRUITMENT POLICY

1. 21 years of age minimum.
– Two conditions of exception:
— The Parent is a member of the Family.
— The possible new member is at least 13 years of age. The parent takes full responsibility.

2. Voice interview on discord to ensure you understand all rules and policies and all your questions have been answered.

3. The “Contractor (for Hire)” system allows us to see if a possible new member is going to work well within the current family. It has no time limit. When you are moved up to our full member status it is because we see you able to bond with the team and within our Family structure!
Everyone starts here. Promotions are not based on friendships. They are based on ability and initiative.

4. We are particularly interested in active and prior military personnel (both US, EU, & world-wide). We have found these personality types desirable and more in line with our ethos. They also tend not to be care-bears. If you find that last statement offensive, we are most definitely not for you.
