Actions Should Matter

This is just a tangent post on a thought that popped in my head and has been evolving as I wrote this.

Good vs Evil, moral vs immoral, right and wrong, black and white. In real life, these are all terms that most people will view based on a large amount of different variables; such as their society, country, origins, heritage, ect... In not so real life though, like video games; how do these interact with the human psyche?

My Response to the Bonus Room

I am only posting this because my comment was lost in a string of 200+ comments over on Ripard Teg's blog post about Erotica 1's "Bonus Room". I just copied and pasta'd my comment, so if the formatting is off, oh well.

However, I cant be the only EvE Online player who feels the same way.

November Update

So there's been alot that has happened since I last posted. Just as a quick recap:

  • I took over SWICC
  • We recruited a couple people and corps into Alice.
  • I lost my right hand man.
  • I decided to take a vacation from Anoikis space.
  • Right hand man re-joined SWICC with his own corp.
  • I sold Alice to an alliance mate. 
  • I left SWICC, making an alt corp of mine the Executor
  • And finally I left DCORR, joining up with some people out in null sec.
Whether or not this chain of events has landed me in the best scenario, who knows; I dont. Im just going with what feels good for now. Im looking to get into hauling for the alliance and perhaps some capital fights. I may even work towards becoming an FC, you never know.

As things go, Ive gotten all moved out of Alice and am setup in our staging system. The most annoying thing to me are cyno alts. Training them, getting them into place, ect. Its annoying. Oh well, things will work themselves out.

So Im back to null sec for now. Maybe, eventually, Ill head back to low. A return to high sec is pretty much never going to happen though =P

Benefits of Theft

So theft happens in a lot of different ways. Thieves steal items, tears, kills; just to name a few. However, how often does it benefit someone else besides the thief? Someone on the side who inadvertently helps the theft along its path; are they also a thief or just an enabler? Well, fair readers, I have the answer for you: The enabler is also a thief. How so, you ask? Glad you asked!

Darkfall: Time to Be a Pirate!

Lately, Ive been farming mobs for prowess and gold. Sometimes solo, mostly in a group of 2 or more clan mates. During conversations, the idea was tossed around for us to get on a boat and go sailing around the world. Everyone agreed and myself with another decided to go half and half on a Wharry; one of the cheapest/smallest ships to sail Agon.

Darkfall: A Rush of Progression

Aiden, Entry 2

As previously posted, I was saved by a small group of fighters. I was invited to their party and we worked together killing the rockbangers for a few more hours. I was eventually invited to join their guild as a part of their mass recruiting experiment. I decided to say yes and attempt to be super social in this game; opposite of my somewhat anti-social behavior in EvE. Its worked out extremely well for the most part.

Logging in for my second evening of play, I pinged comms for any interest in an exploration group. Most people were busy killing, but one person, Phuzzy Logic, piped up and asked for an invite. Meeting up in Sanguine, we decided where we would explore; choosing to go around the main center continent of Agon at the waters edge. And so we went East towards the ocean.

Darkfall: A Shift in Life.

Aiden, Entry 1

At the request of my current tutor, Oliver, I am recording the events up to my encounter with what they call "Rockbangers" and their "Stone Lord"

We lived a bit west of Sandbrook; until the old man spent all the coin on a ship of his own and never came back. I was so young when it happened, we moved into the actual town and people called us "Westbrook's". I don't remember our real name, and Mama passed away before I was old enough to ask. 

Luckily, a love of the Sea was passed on to me and I was able to catch a few fish a day to live on. Eventually, I got good enough to catch more than I needed and could sell them. Never made enough to get my own ship though, so I was limited in how much I could snag. Early morning outings, afternoon market excursions. 

And that's how life went on for several years. Ships always coming and going from Sandbrook, yet none wanting a recruit as young as myself. "Experienced only", they told me; as if to say people were born with such experience. Wasn't everyone new at some day in their lives? Apparently not.
