Origin of a Spaceship: Warp Disruption Fields

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Warp Disruption Fields (See also: Bubbles)
  • Pseudo Predatory Flora
  • Subclass: Mobile 

Identification:
Warp Disruption Fields can be identified by their large, globular shape.  Translucent, Warp Disruption Fields have a blue sheen to them. The exterior field is non-static and material can pass through.  There is no tack or rebound and movement is freely made through the exterior membrane. 

The exterior membrane will appear to be fragile and ripple. However it is sturdy and not prone to collapsing upon itself.  

There are multiple sizes of Warp Disruption Fields.  These various sizes indicate maturity and longevity with higher chances of mature spore release for larger Warp Disruption Fields.
Sub-Species:  Interdiction Spheres are a short lived, fast spore Warp Disruption Fields cultivated internally by spaceships.

 Properties:
There is no stickness or rebound and movement is freely made through the exterior membrane   However, internal properties destabilize spaceship warp cores. The root system forms a central node at the center of the globe.

Although classified as Flora due to their seeming lack of sentience, Warp Disruption Field have formed a parasitic bond with some spaceships.  This bond allows a handful of Spaceship species to harbor younger Warp Disruption Field and use their abilities to destabilize warp cores in their hunting.  From internal examination of specimens it appears that the Warp Disruption Field feeds off of the spaceships capacitor and power grid in a harmonious relationship. 

The sub-species Interdiction Spheres are short lived, fast spore Warp Disruption Fields cultivated internally by spaceship. These fields are ejected by the ship and briefly flare to life, releasing their spores before vanishing.  They are easily differentiated by their lack of a solid root base at the center of the Warp Disruption Field.

Location:
Warp Disruption Fields absorb energy.  In inhabited areas they can often be found clustered around jump gates, stations, and artificial structures.  These non-natural objects attract the Warp Disruption Field.  They can start to cluster at times; becoming a nuisance and must be cleared out of the area.  This purge was done on a large scale in settled, empire space.

Warp Disruption Fields can be found in proliferation in null security space.  In these areas, while clustered around manufactured energy sources they may also be found near suns and planets.

Intentional cultivation of transplanted specimens has caused a population to inhabit wormhole space.  This population can now be considered indigenous.   However, due to the sporadic nature of settlement in wormhole space they are prone to migrate towards any structure in large amounts to draw enough energy for pollination.

Other Points of Note:
Warp Disruption Fields are commonly known as 'bubbles'.  This term is only used amid the capsuleer pilots.  However, the common influence of their vernacular has caused some confusion on planets. This obliterated the sale of 'bubbles' the children's toy made of soap due to mass fear that small children would be consumed by these toys.

The roots will be at the heart of the sphere.  This must be removed, be uprooting or destruction.

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
