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.

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

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
