Origin of a Spaceship

Laven:
  1. A Laven is a subspecies of Raven that uses Lasers.
  2. Laven: A troll boat see: Battle Noctis
Background:  
Once debated to be a crossbreed side effect due to the creation of the Sansha ships the Laven is thought to have escaped labs where it lurked, deep in the unknown recesses of Faction Warfare space.  There, the Laven fed off of orbital belts where the strong energies of the brighter stars were absorbed as additional fuel.  It is thought that their vestigial lasers, normally absorbed during manufacturing were stimulated by this excessive sunlight.  This allowed the Laven to develop into a small, unknown niche where they were fed by colonel settlers abandoned by capsuleers.

Eventually, flocks of Laven were scattered about contested, low security space.  Weak and shy they were too fragile to compete with the Raven Navy Issue that lurked the belts of 0.0 space.  Cast out of high sec due to the superiority and high numbers of their Raven cousins, Laven eventually found a place.  It was not until the recent spark of aggression between the planet side mercenaries of the various empire factions gained momentum that the Laven came to light.

They paid back their planetside keepers and have spawned into the darkness, their laser based nature making them so surprising that often other ships just stare at them as they soar through the edges of the atmosphere and strike with devastating accuracy when given brilliant circles to shoot at.


In the Wild:
Until recently, the Laven has never been seen in the wild.  Even now, only domesticated specimens have been seen.  Grants have been issued for further study of the differences in the species.  There is some hope that a domesticated Laven can be radio tagged so that researches can come to understand the habits of shit shy, elusive spaceship in its natural environment.


Other Crosses:
These types of hybrids are known but not well documented.  The only other truly well known case is that of the secretive crossbreeding of a Hyperion with a Rifter to create the Megathron.

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
