Origin of a Spaceship: Omen

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Omen
Background

Perhaps the most exhaustively explored and inventoried area of space, the Golden Nebula, known simply as Amarr is home to the Omen. One of the most common and easily tamed cruisers, Omen's were domesticated early in the Nebula's settlement. This led to exhaustive breeding programs and fossil records as well as early diagrams and sketches show that the current Omen does not quite look like its ancestors.  Enough similarities exist to solidly document the spaceships move from the wild to domestication.

Like many ships native to the Amarr Nebula the Omen is a deep, rich gold that it uses for camouflage. The natural, heavy armor protects it from the particle heavy aspect of this particular, vivid part of the cluster. A fast paced predator, the Omen is not always a heavy hitter but tends to be conscious and steady with the natural tendency of Amarr ships to suffer pure exhaustion and energy loss. This is believed to be why they were so easy to domesticate due to easy capture after exhaustive attempts to hunt the surveyors many specimens were fed rods of condensed energy and became tame, following the surveyors around and associating mankind with nourishment and companionship.

Observations

Omen are one of several spaceship species that are no longer found in the wild. Easy breeders and prolific, they have been developed into individual strains, identified as doctrines that do not crossbreed well. This leads to a tendency for each corporation to focus their Omen training and have trained, narrowly focused spaceships.

Highly social, Omen do best in fleets. Singular specimens can be found but often they are lame or deranged. Singular Omen are well known to bond with other spaceship types, leading to the general understanding that the fleet is gregarious in nature and habit. If not properly trained an Omen will pick up the habits of those around it, using unsuitable weaponry and attempting to support a shield focus.

Other Points of Note

While easy tempered and manageable by even the youngest pilot, the Omen is a fierce predator prone to striking with its berrylike projection on its brow. This often leads the Omen into heavy combat a situation that not all sub-species (also known as doctrines by breeders) are suited for. However, the steadfast temperament and hard hitting power of the Omen often causes the spaceship to push past its expected potential.

They are a prolific if underrated breed Omen's consume a large amount of energy making them unsuited for nomadic groups without energy capture substructure. They are attracted to golden suns when in deep space. Researchers believe that back in the Omen's origin they soaked up solar rays to recharge themselves leading to many territorial battles on the sun.

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

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio
