10 Million Skill Points and Diplomacy

I reached a milestone in my young game life this weekend and crossed the 10 million skill point mark with Chella.

It was unexpected. One moment I was at 9.8 and the next at 10.2. I'm sure some things passed between those points.

Now I have a toon with 10 million SP. Sugar is close behind with 8.9. I'm a badass, yes indeed, lookie, lookie.

One of the more amusing things is that 5 million is a mental hurdle for me. When introduced to things, you pick up the oddest points of refrence. When I was into my second or third day in the newbie systems, I came across an anchored can. That can was an advert for a corp. It said that they had a 5 million SP minimum. At the time I had around 600k and I remember thinking that I would never have 5 million.

Somewhere along the line, the idea of 5 million as being my first point of being 'wantable' anchored in my head. Now I am double that and I am still absolutely terrible. Poor Chella's skills are cleaning up but they are still all over the place.

Ender asked me a few days ago how I was doing with my Scimi training. I blinked at him and reminded him that I had an Oneiros. I then told him that I'd start Scimi training next month. I have a few more nav skills that I want to get together for her.

I think I will remap her into spaceship command and drones. This way she can get her drone skills out of the way and her advanced star-ship command out of the way along with Minnie cruiser V. With my vaguely plan here, she will be able to plant herself into her carrier by the end of the year in suitcase mode.

Then the carrier can be rendered into a glorious explosion trying to do something amazing.

Beyond that, my alliance leader decided that my love of ~~~~words~~~~ was such that I'd get the alliance diplomat title. He told me to go forth and be diplomatic to people. So, yah, whatever that is going to entail... yay?

I have chatter V trained but I fear that social butterfly is only up to III on the way to IV. However, the support skill of good natured has been at V for a while now and I believe that with an implant or two I will be able to bridge the gap while I wait for social butterfly to finish training up.

In celebration of these two glorious events, I shall make my own chat channel!

Amazing.

Yet, I have no idea what to name it. Right now, its closely tied between something about cupcakes and something about cupcakes. Hopefully, with some sleep I can come up with a creative and interesting idea that is easy to remember.

I'm also really liking Tilde as the channel name. We'll see.
