Origin of a Spaceship: Rokh

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Rokh
Background
The introduction of the Rokh to the domesticated spaceship lines of the Caldari engineering corporations was a coupe for the Caldari State.  Unlike the established Scorpion and Raven the Rokh fields a full arsenal of hybrid turrets.  Known snipers these spaceships had remained elusive for years often stopping attackers from large distances and managing to slip into warp and vanish before any were caught.

Highly social, a fleet of Rokh were hard to hunt down.  Their highly social nature was sought after to improve the Caldari front line. Attempts to trap them proved futile.  It was not until a single boy found an injured Rokh while out with in a Ibis and used his civilian shield transfer to assist it to safety that the Caldari were able to get their hands on the Rokh blueprint.

Points of Interest
The Rokh was a late discovery by the Caldari.  It was blueprints that they first discovered and used to grow this type of Ship.  Already established were the Raven and Scorpion.  A hybrid battleship was a find that reinvigorated the Caldari spaceship front and changed their battle methods.

The Rokh became a front line addition to the fleet Calvary   The Caldari State was able to cross-breed it with the Ferox to develop the Naga, a ship that retains the Rokh's sniping and social fleet behavior on a smaller scale.

Sub-Species
The Rokh is a highly adaptable spaceship.  Although it sits within the genus battleship the Rokh has three well known sub-genus.
  • Laser Rokh
  • Mining Rokh
  • Smartbomb Rokh
The Laser Rokh may be a matter of upbringing.  Due to its powerful capacitor to fuel its hybrid turrets the Rokh is a flexible spaceship.  Laser Rokh are often hard to detect and may appear in fleets with hybrid Rokh undetected until quarry is flushed and the hunt starts.

Mining Rokh have a placid, non-aggressive temperament that may surprise some considering its size and firepower   These massive battleships once swarmed asteroid belts chasing out smaller less capable spaceships.  However, due to over hunting these once populous beasts have been reduced to notation and the occasional sighting.  Their placid dispositions made them easy to hunt down and careful mixing with more aggressive stock has diluted the tendency to mine in these spaceships.

The Smartbomb Rokh is the only member of the Rokh family with an overtly aggressive temperament.  Unlike the rest of its brethren known for their sniping ability and distance weapons platforms the smartbomb Rokh prefers to huddle around the jump gates.  Discestion has shown that there is a distinct abnormality to their blaster systems.  To compensate these spaceships have developed an affinty for a high, short blast of unfocused energy.  They stun smaller spaceships and consume them.  Due to the massive size of this Spaceship they must consume vast quantities of small spaceships.  Their social nature has allowed them to form neatly arranged fleets that encircle the gate and release their stunning pulses in a rhythmic wave.

  1. The power tool incorporates a detached base that has magnets on a stand mount to make sure secure mounting. This ensures sturdiness of the tool since it's less liable to falling, which might harm it.

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. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
