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.

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 …

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…

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 of A…
