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.

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.

It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
