Quiet Friday Night

It was a pang of guilt that hit me as I decided not to run a fleet on Friday. I had things to do, chores, and some little odds and ends that will occupy most of my short evening leaving me unable to sit still at my computer for an extended period of time to run a fleet. It turned out almost everyone was a bit worn out from the pace we have kept up and were ready for a laid back evening.

There are plans for tomorrow and I will scrape together something for Sunday. It all depends on how everything falls together. Spending the last, almost week in high sec has been a bit odd. I really, really do not know how to high sec. I'm constantly almost attacking things. I'm startled all of the time by the ships around me. Every time I see battleships land on gates I'm trying to figure out what is about to go down.

I find it just a bit strange. Sugar has spent little time in high sec as well. I find myself in a combat ship and I just cannot quite realize that I am not where I think I am. I've not spent very much time in this place outside my logistic runs. I understand some of the basics of it. I still find myself somewhat uncomfortable and not in love with it.

One of the upsides is that you meet people.


This tweet amused me because I was herding my fleet through high sec to meet up with the other half of the fleet in low sec. I do love the intertwined nature of Eve. From twitter to blogs and meets and chats we can all interact with each other in game. I've gotten volunteers that have come and joined in which makes the fleets a bit larger and gives a few more perspectives on the game as well as just having people meet new people.

One of the best outcomes of this will just be making a few connections for them. Eve should be much bigger when they are done.

As for me, I'm going to rest my voice and rest my thoughts. I have a lot to think about. Normally, at this point, I'd be looking for source material, guides, walkthroughs, and etc. "How to Run a Roam, FC 101". What to do... what to do...?

I'll figure something out.

    See Sugar, these are the little gems your approach to blogging delivers. So much of Hi-Sec is about navigating the noise and (if one chooses) uncovering the web of local relationships (who's so & so's "neutral" RR?, who's so & so's command link spinning alt?, who's so & so's scout? . . .). While there's nothing unique about such things, Hi-Sec has it's own unique flavor.

    Mind your PDQs and refrain from being an appealing target and you can pretty much rely on the Authorities to protect you. Decide to look for trouble and trouble will find you right quick. The pleasures of civilized life.

  5. You guys did do well! I'd like to think my spiritual support had something to do with it. I managed to lose a cruiser to a T1 frig on my second day in EVE in losec, and I have avoided it thus far. The tortuously long skill plan is finally reaching the point of combat readiness, and hopefully I'll be meeting more people in more places in a couple weeks, outside of the paranoid silence of hisec.

  6. I have to admit, Sugar, I've really enjoyed your posts the last few days. I hope you do more with that newb corp - and write about it.

    Its stories like this that almost inspire me to renew my subscription. Keep it up!
