Blog Banter #26: "The Beauty of EVE" (OOC)

It is a pity that when CK initiated this sharing amongst EVE bloggers with "Blog Banter #1" my attention was diverted from EVE, elsewhere. Now, almost three years later I will finally enjoy participating in my very first blog banter...

What is Your Motivation?

"why you doing this? You ain't makin money!"
A reoccurring question posed to me is what motivates me to walk the path of civil engineer? Each time that question is posed (in a myriad of variations) to me by pod-pilots, I am never afforded the opportunity to answer it myself. Instead, the inquisitive insert their own observation in my stead- and that answer is always the same,

"there are better ways to earn ISK."

Miner's Tears 1: Captain Veldruk

There he was: Captain Veldruk quietly mining in a little belt in the corner of the Hjortur system. Mr. Veldruk was not pleased when I confiscated a full cargo container of ore he had left lying about, so the man returned in a Bestower, and attempted to take as much ore as he could in a "snatch and grab" play that utterly failed!

A hint, Mr. Veldruk, do not take the item until you are aligned and ready to warp.

One can only imagine the terrible day of mining that could cause a scar of that magnitude!

I lay waste to his Bestower, leaving a sliver of hull remaining before I offered Mr. Veldruk a ransom proposition. Instead of looking kindly upon my offer, Mr. Veldruk decided to take matters into his own hands and destroy his own ship! Fortunately, for Mr. Veldruk the contraband he had removed from my cargo container remained intact. However, what ensued was the snarkiest, perhaps the most inappropriate tirade I have yet experienced during my time in New Eden. Enjoy!

Postcards from the Ledge

I received this bit of fan mail from a miner stationed in the Ivar sector:

Ransom 101: Parlay with Pegleg

Ransom FAQ

Chances are if you are reading this page you are at the mercy of 'old Pegleg Punk. While mulling over his ransom demands you are probably wondering if the shifty fellow will indeed honor his end of the bargain once you make his wallet "blink"?

The answer is a resounding, "YES" as long as certain criteria are met...

EVE Fanfest Live Feed

A solar panel cannot hope to generate as much energy as the CCP panel currently answering questions and spewing amazing one-liners at EVE Fanfest 11!

 For those of you that were unable to attend the EVE Fanfest in Reykjavik Iceland, there is available a streaming video feed available in the following link:
The panel of CCP devs fields Q & A from attendees broadcast live from Reykjavik Iceland:

I am currently enjoying the live feed with a warm cup of tea, while in the thick of a hunt!

Brothers from Another Mother: A Requieum

"As her armor fails a new warrior enters the fray- fresh.
...To no avail.
The worm capitulates.
It feels death near.
lapping at it's hindquarters- it is ablaze.
Demise is certain.
Soon, Dearheart. Soon."

#70: Remember the Titans!

A Cyclone is a terrible thing to waste!

While passing through the Leurtmar system, I had scanned what appeared to be a mining operation sharing a jet-can in asteroid belt 3-1. I frowned in disappointment when I discovered that I did not have a safe spot bookmarked for that particular belt.
No time like the present,” I said to myself with a grin. I instructed Aura, my ship’s artificial intelligence, to warp 100K out from 3-1. As my Rifter, Panty Dropper, aligned in preparation of the warp jump, Aura’s voice purred throughout my pod, “Warp drive active.”

I Always Carry a Flask

This Spirit warms the gut and tickles the nose!
Like an avenging spirit I return to New Eden, bent on cutting a swath through a whole new crop of pod pilots’ intent on cluttering the reaches of space with trash and junk. The reasons for my absence are not important; however, I noticed upon my return that my physical appearance had changed…more than likely due to some side effect of prolonged time spent in my pod.
