The Rewards of Devotion expedition is an escalation of the Blood Vigil combat site found by Probing for exploration sites. This expedition consists of four different locations in different systems, the first three of which are in high sec. The last location is in low sec.

The expedition begins with the destruction Corpus Station Manager, the Dark Blood Cruiser Commander of the Blood Vigil, with the following message:

Escalation Message:

"The janitor of this tiny pleasure dome is an old sickly man, who seems quite pleased to see his former employers real-estate been blown apart. Among the things he tells you is that he was a slave captured by the Blood Raiders years ago and what saved his life was that his blood was useless to them as he had contracted some nasty VD during his teenage years while he worked as a page at the interregional trade council in Jita. He can also inform you about the location to a small hideaway, similar to this one, where he once served as a janitor, until his old master lost him in a game of craps to the station manager, for whom he has worked ever since."

Escalation Message:

"While blasting the station, your instruments picked up transmissions in connection with its security system, which apparently was communicating with some central security station. You have the feeling that sticking around for too long is not a very good idea, as it is pretty certain that a security detail has already been dispatched to take care of whoever is vandalizing the executive pleasure huts in the area i.e. you. But if the security detail is coming your way, it means they are not at their base, so... you quickly hit some buttons and in a few seconds you have location of what presumably is the security station flashing on your navigation panel."
