Upwell Consortium have announced that they have completed the design of the Astrahus class citadel and they are now entering the testing phase of development. Five prototypes of the Astrahus are to be built across New Eden and their locations have now been made public. Construction sites are already being set up and their layouts give a clear indication of the enormity of the project’s scale, bearing in mind that the Astrahus is the smallest of the three proposed Citadel classes. To speed up acquisition of the research components required for the construction Upwell is recruiting capsuleers by staging a special prize draw. Each special research component contracted to Intaki Bank contact Lee Brinalle will generate an entry in the prize draw. The lucky winners will receive tokens guaranteeing Astrahus blueprint copies as soon as they become available. The number of prize tokens to be drawn out will depend on how many research components are collected. If the project reaches all its collection goals then a Fortizar blueprint prize will be added to the draw. Furthermore, Upwell also guarantees the individual who brings in the most research components an Astrahus blueprint copy. With this bold construction plan, Upwell aims to acquire all the research components it needs to construct the prototypes, while at the same time delivering another stab at the Serpentis corporation who are known to store research components at their sites. This is Lina Ambre reporting for the Scope.
