Saga Response - A Continuation

For those following the silly Saga there has been no in game response but there is another blog post response to read. If you are not into spoilers read it first before continuing. I know many have been amused.

I received no in game response and doubt that I will be making a direct blog post response to him. After reading what he wrote I realized that I did not do a good enough job expressing my lack of interest intermixed with my distaste for his approach. I should have added, "please go away" but I was to busy being clever and cute.

His reaction to send me a response crafted around my obvious desire for him and to treat me as a gold digger after his stuff left a sour taste about this entire thing. I'm sure many will find it well done and amusing. I know that it is all roleplay. I still find it incredibly disappointing that his reaction moved in that direction with a third party screen.

So, I've been put in my place over the entire thing. I find it rather sad that the response is to make sure I know that it is cute that I think so much of myself but a clear indicator that he is so amazing. Especially for someone that has been acting weird as hell and making statements that hover over my personal insult threshold and only stayed over it because of the joking nature. Only that joking nature is obviously going to stay where it is and my place inside of this particular saga as he writes it is not to be any type of strong, independent spirit. Nope, its 'quaint' in his own words. I'm terribly disappointed and a bit insulted. But, this was never about me. I was target for his creativity and passive or active I am but a piece of scenery in this story.

If I receive no in game response I will not move further. I had hoped for some type of fun, if silly exchange of creativity. I'm disappointed but I have no one but myself to blame for not crafting a better response.

Oh well. Not everything turns into a work of interconnected poetry.

  1. That's how RP works. He's playing a character that just isn't going to react the way you would like and you're not likely to change that. Probably time to give his character the kiss-off, which would be completely justifiable within the context of the RP (and something I'd bet happens to him more than a few times).

    I do find it odd, though, that he seems to be continuing the RP out of game. I used to RP online back in the day, and the convention always was that any RP happened in-game or it didn't happen.

    1. To be picky he distanced his character by making a new one to respond. RP isn't my thing. I hoped with all the voices and enthusiasm I was in the wrong. So I tried something new and found it distasteful, disappointing, and degrading.

      I'm glad other people enjoy this. Its not for me.

    2. Sue Derpantsoff! Oh he just busted out Sue. Sue is a constant thorn in my side when interacting with the Great Lhorenzho. Many sympathies. Can't believe he has Sue involved .... *shakes head*

    3. Haha Would you expect any less from the old man MB? :P

  2. Just a few comments from a casual and entertained observer...

    I liked your response to Lhorenzho; you really came across as the ice-cold Pirate Queen you claimed to be! Well written and well acted - that's they key thing with RP - it's acting.

    From your writing in this blog I can see that you invest a lot of yourself as a player in the Sugar Kyle avatar. In contrast, Lhorenzho's player is acting out his narcissistic, batshit insane capsuleer for the entertainment of himself and the audience.

    Sometimes these two playstyles don't quite gel together - as a somewhat extreme example, look at the RP'ing New Order and their opponents who claim that they must be cultists / fascists / sociopaths in RL.

    I think if you distanced yourself and acted out the Pirate Queen you'd enjoy it, if only for the exercise in creative writing, which you've clearly got a talent for!

    :)

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 …
