Origin of a Spaceship: Rokh

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

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.

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.

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. …

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 …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.

It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
