Pewpew and Embarrassing Secrets

I have a guilty secret.

I like the new Jaguar. I have a thing for urban camo.

In reality I believe that the paint job is ridiculous conceptually. Camoflaguge spaceships. What the hell? But, my secret lust for urban camo shatters every bit of sense and taste that I have. I love this ship.

After the busy day of local fighting, Diz lured us out on a roam. It seems as if PvP hunger is not so easily quenched. Its fantastic when it comes to us. It is also great fun when it has to be found.

At first I was not going to go. But when Ender agreed to go we restructured took a few minutes to do IRL stuff and then got back together to go roam. We met up with our little fleet of five. Tornado/Hurricane/Hurricane/Drake/Drake

We came upon the Vagabond about 5 jumps into the roam. He jumped through. We figured we'd not be able to lock him. They are fast freaking ships. He held cloak and held cloak and held cloak and finally it dropped. We instantly targeted him and then a series of "What the fucks" echoed over coms as we all locked and pointed him. He then decided to go for the gate. However, Ren was our web equipped hero. Once his shields where down he exploded. No damage control 2 module was rather evident in the speed that shields went to explosion with no visual imagery of armor and structure.

While out scouting, Ender came upon a Hoarder. It didn't seem to be doing much of anything. He bumped it. It let itself be bumped. He bumped it some more. It finally started to burn away from him. After playing with it for about 3 minutes he finally shot it.

It exploded quickly. Then the pod sat there. After he finished looking over the contents of the drop he casually commented that the pod was sitting there. Razor, he who likes to keep his sec at -10 jumped in and ran over and killed the pod. The pod that was still sitting there.

Now the two of them had GCC. Oh well. There was not a lot out and we kept bouncing along, kind of curving home while looking for something else to engage in spaceship violence.

That is how we found a drake in an anomaly. The decison was made to send one of our drakes forward to meet that drake. This is when things get weird. Our drake landed, managed to move 15k and tackle the other drake. The FC ordered us to hold in case one of the locals undocked to assist.

Like clockwork a Tornado undocked. We were ordered to jump in and warp to our drake. The Tornado landed right before us. He took a few shots at our drake and then started to burn away. Sadly for him snake clone Tornado flying Ender chased him down easily.

The drake in the anomaly exploded. Then the tornado. That was when I noticed the wreck of a battlecruiser in the plex that did not belong to either of the parties whom had just become explosions.

Did bait meet bait?

The things to ponder. We went home.

A little later I went out with a handful of the alliance to swing around the area and see what there was to see. We poked our head into a pocket we often ignore and found a Tempest that was willing to play.

Todays bait flavor was a claymore. I've been confusing claymore and cyclone all over the place and Ender has been pointing it out left and right when I mess up here. I just checked the killmail/report and sure enough it is a claymore.

Anyway, he got the Tempest to shoot him. They undocked a loki. When both were aggressed the rest of the fleet (wolf/cyclone/drake/drake/cane) jumped in. When we landed they had undocked a Thanatos.

Reps... hmm...

Everyone with ECM dones sent them to jam the Thanatos. Under the weight of 15 drones, he was jamed and no more reps for the Tempest. As soon as the Thanatos was jamed the Tempest deaggressed. We were able to kill him before he could dock. We then started to shoot the Loki but he docked as soon as he touched armor. The Thanatos then docked behind them all.

We scooped loot, grabbed our drones, and ran away.

I think I'm done for the day. Sec status is down to -3.8

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
