Leaving my first Corp

I've been playing for just under a month. My thirty day point is about to hit. I will be kicked out of Rookie Chat. I will miss Rookie Chat, it is a fascinating channel.

I've joined the regular Help Channel instead. It is a useful thing.

At this moment, I am leaving my Corp as well. Its early in the morning and my reasons for leaving are varied. I've learned a lot. I totally feel that people should join a corp quickly. Not something crazy but a group of players to get to know and learn.

I've met some wonderful people that way. My new life is going to be a bit different but fortunately not lonely. I'm going to make my own corp for a bit. It is a tax shelter really. If you stay in an NPC corp you lose around 11% of what you make off of missions and bounties. Instead, I will make my own corp and give myself 5% tax rate that I can access.

I hope to store it aside for the future.

I have plans for the future.

I am not a scammer or a thief so far in the game. I gave my corp back all the items I was using. I tossed some extra in for good measure. When my corp leader invited me, he gave me a Thorax that I named Sugar Cookie. I gave that back as well although it hurt a bit. It's odd that you can get so attached so quickly to something that isn't alive much less real.

I have a new home system that is not so far from where my corp was. I feel odd stepping on their toes so I won't do it. I loaded up my Iteron III and hauled my shit over.

Many Gallente ships look like penises. It is supposed to be organic. I guess a phallus is.

I then did a dozen trips back and forth to move all of my regular use ships. Some I don't use, like one of the ships I first started mining in. Still, I am attached to that ship. So I keep it around. It did a good job for me and helped me make my first 10mil before I finished the Rookie missions and went off to explore space.

I feel like a bit of a bitch, leaving. You do develop ties and loyalty issues very quickly. Hopefully we can still be friends. It makes it sound like a bad breakup when I say it that way.

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…
