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.

Bounty payment

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.

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. …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …
