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. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…
