Origin of a Spaceship: Incursus

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Incursus
  • A social and migratory frigate
  • A dedicated jouster
Background:
It is understood that the first fleets of Incursus were observed during the colonization of the solar system, Cat, in the Essence system.  The foundation of the Gallente Federation caused an explosion of civilization across this sector of space.  It was when several migrating fleets of Incursus devastated long caravans of barges that these frigates gained notice.  It was not long until orphaned  spaceships were domesticated and swiftly worked their way to the front of the Gallente Navy.

Observations:
It has been noted that Incursus are fleet spaceships.  Their large migratory trips span the entire width of the Gallente Federation.  The migration appears to be constant if long term.  These frigates have proven to be a hardy species, prone to low fatigue over long trips.

The highly social nature of the Incrusus makes it an excellent front line ship.  In domestication, Incruses are used as both scouts and initial assault spaceships.  Their tough, exterior armor is duel layered and self repairs at a rapid speed when provided the proper nanite diet.

Due to its highly developed social skills, the Incursus has proven swift and reliable to train.  Incursus are highly sought after by new capsuleers.  Many will eventually acquire their own, personal herd.  The loyalty of these frigates is astonishing.  Many capsuleers can release their frigates to migrate with the wild fleets only to have them respond to trained sequences years later.  This fierce loyalty makes the Incursus a frigate that will never be bypassed by an active, efficient Navy.

Points of Note:
The Incursus is equipped with a large spear on one side of the spaceship.  This spear is seen on each ship and does not appear to differentiate in size by gender or fleet position.  Normally, sharp protrusions are seen on spaceship hybridism types bred by Sansha's Nation.  The Incursus appears to have come about its spear as part of its natural, evolutionary path.

Notation made of migratory fleets have shown Incursus jousting with these spears.  As the ships work their way up the fleet rankings the jousts become duels and at the level of Wing Commander they often end in death.  All spaceships are seen jousting and appears to prove an important role in venting the natural aggression of these spaceships.

Incursus are also known to cohabit with symbiotic drone pairs.

Technical Note:
The Incursus spear like, rigid limb is know as the stimulare pungere virga

Sub-Species:
Enyo
Ishkur

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…

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …
