My Billion Isk Bounty

About a week ago I got a convo from someone I haven't seen in a bit. He was moving on to bigger and better things and moving to null sec.

He noticed that my bounty was no longer a rounded number. I drained my last bounty a while ago and posted about it. I had reaccumilated another one through 'donations' from friends and I was back up to 15 million. I think the number was 15,151,515.15 or something very silly.

He goes, "I'll fix that," and laughs. I look at my bounty, count zeros and wonder if it really reads a billion. About 40 seconds later Mane goes, "Sugar your bounty is a billion isk? Log Chella on and pod yourself."

However, the person that set it goes, "Don't be naughty and go drain it." So I promised I'd keep it until I had to drain it. And I did. I've been living my life like normal. Sometimes I have to fend off people asking to pod and split it with me. I guess there is the chance that I have no alt, no corp, no friends, and am stupid. It doesn't hurt to ask. Someone else asked if people are hunting me down. I told them not anymore then normal.

Today, I was chatting with someone who noticed by bounty and informed me that I was #13 on the 'most wanted list'. Bountys are bullshit but I had to admit, I was amused that I was ranked so high.

I was amused. It was not until we were halfway through our roam and commenting about sec status (some went flashy red, I went down to -3.9 from -3.4) that one of my corpmates finally noticed my bounty status.

To a point, I'm shocked they didn't just pod me right there. However, I was ordered to drain my bounty immediately upon reaching home. I even got the direct command from Ender who did not approve of the chance of someone randomly popping my pod and getting it.

Sigh.

For your termination of Sugar Kyle we have paid you the bounty that was set to his head: 1,000,000,000.00 ISK

They have not yet fixed the gender issue payout. However, they responded to my petition about it. I'm sure its in a long list of 'minor bullshit one day'.

Bounty free again.

Some will believe that I set it on myself. If you look at the top list, some people use it as advertisement space.

It is what it is... it was cute while it lasted... Ahh well...

  1. Who the hell placed it on your head?
    Was it someone you really pissed off? (and stupid enough to not know about self-podding)
    Or was it someone who like you and wanted to give anonymous gift?

    1. Someone that likes me, I know who it is, and it was a lulz gift. :) Plus, they've been trying to see if they can get my corp/alliance to pod me for the bounty.
