The Hunt of the Wolf

Warning: There may be mildly dramatic, potentially overwrought prose below. Caution is advised. 
TW;DR*: I killed stuff

Let me start with a confession. They say that it cleanses the soul and soothes the mind to confess to what is done. And upon this moment, I find the need to confess. I need to confess what I did but I also wish to explain it. To explain that I did it for love. I had to step outside of my morals. Outside of my boundaries.

I flew an armor frigate.

And not just any armor frigate. For, with Assault Frigate V and three Racial Frigates to V I had a selection spread out before me to challenge even the most vast Emperor's stables. Yet, it was without hesitation that I moved to one singular ship. A ship of significant strength and beauty.

I selected Chocolate. My Wolf.


And I know that the Wolf and the Jaguar are natural enemies as oil is to water and matter is to anti-matter. Yet, upon the proclamation of the fleet commander I had a singular situation that I was prepared for. I had prepared in the deepest of dark, screened from the taunts and knowing eyes of society. I had selected and built this Wolf in quiet and covered it as if it was my own shame.

But this was a hunt where no Jaguar could come. Even as the FC cried, "Undock! Undock! Let us bring fury to the night!" And so did we undock. Our wolves hevey of coat with their cold, glowing red eyes. And our pack burst into the night in a fury of fangs and furry. For the moon was full and our howls washed through the night.


Without care or fear I dove into the abyss! And I did land on that field and scream my cry to battle as my autocannons opened up upon the hunkered down from of the Ishkur.

Anslo, I am sorry. For, we did not know you were FC. It was the Talwars our blood lust sought when we landed on grid. But they were not there and you were. I know that we spoke after, even as I dined upon the loot of your wreck. I know that it could have been me. Be it known that there was no intent to primary you. It was the song of the turrets and they sang with strength and pride. It was the blind lust of the explosions.

It was the fury of battle.

And such did we kill the Enyo, and the Merlin, and the Talwar who kited. As our Inquisitor fell to the overwhelming onslaught and my fellow packmate, Robinton was slain for his pelt. And how I howled as he fell even as the battle raged around us. How bloody was that field, full of death and explosions. For others did fall in that wild, fury of violance.

And thus the story ends. For Altaen was taken down by a Merlin blob soon after, and our fleet, shattered but strong rallied together to slink back to Molden Heath. It was Robinton who agreed that cutting through high sec would mean a gatecamp. It always means a gatecamp for me these days.

And back, nestled into the safe bosem of Molther Molden, I can but reflect on this night. Of carnage, and violence, and armor frigates stalking the night.

  1. I’m in no position to grant absolution as it seems an affair to be settled between you and the Jaguar. Have you approached her about it? Is she the jealous type?

  2. And verily things that did not wot of the wolf were slain and much feasting was had at the high table for tis midsummer and the moon waxes gibbous

  3. "in a fury of fangs and fury"

    Something's a bit repetitive there. Should that last "fury" been "fur"? Or should we just get you a good thesaurus?

    1. It should have been furry and I just corrected it. Thank you. You can get me a thesaurus if you feel I'm repetitive and in need of help finding words.

      I only wish you could directly link a graphic in a comment.

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…
