The Rising of a Corp Thief

"Hi, you killed my hoarder a while ago. I'm interested in robbing my corp and becoming a pirate."

And that is how I wound up helping someone get the help they needed to rob their corp.

I didn't remember him. A quick killboard search and I did. He was a Hoarder running distribution missions in low sec mostly AFK out of boredom. I had called out his intel to the boys because Diz had me ahead scouting and acting like bait. They picked him up a few gates later and popped his ship. I sent him a conversation about the event to make sure he was not a newbie. That particular night was a night of autopiloting everything into low sec. It turned out he was not. He was good natured about it. We had a good chat, and I thought nothing else of it.

Therefore, the conversation request surprised me. However, I was willing to run with it. I made it clear that I'd happily help but I was not making any promises to enroll anyone into my corporation.

What I did was establish the basics. High sec industry corp. He couldn't fly the Mackinaw and Hulk in the ship maintenance array of the POS. I started to explain basic POS rules to him while I called Vov (making sure to use extra Vs). Vov responded, I dropped him into the conversation and let him take over.

As he headed to assist, he taught him what to do, what to take, and made him work through a series of steps to clean everything out. He had him empty to POS, take every ship he could, empty the corporate hangers, access the wallet tab that he had. Once that was accomplished we got the password changed and Vov helped to scoop ships.

All of that was accomplished over about an hour or so. What was next was the corporate hangar array, the ship array, and the labs. It was a stationless system so the tower was running blue prints in the lab.

"Once you do this, there is no going back." Vov warned him.

"I came to Eve for the pirate things, the thefts, the dark stuff," was the response.

"Make sure you have plenty of ammo," Vov responded.

They took down the arrays and the labs. He was rewarded with a few hundred million more in loot and some researched blueprints. The total theft time was around two hours. I was bouncing about, tackling things at the time. It was interesting to see Vov work him through it.

When they were done, Vov docked up with him and traded him everything.

"What do you want in payment?"

"Nothing," he responded.  "Now, remember you can hunt down and kill your corpmates still."

And thus we left him. He joined my public chat and plans to go off to FW and move onto piracy past that.
