Red and Yellow

"Sugar! Sugar! What are you going to do?"

"I don't know!"

That is my standard answer to things these days. I don't know. I don't have any goals. I'm floating along for now and seeing what happens.

I am enjoying not keeping up with things. It is lovely.

I am still fighting the good fight for all my haulers out there to get contracts increased to the max load for a Charon. No more wasted space!

And I undocked an alt and wandered off to get money. I just don't feel like doing anything with Sugar. She should be doing something productive and the thought of accessing and moving my stuff is just such a weight right now. The more mature approach is to just blow it all off and do something else.

And that is how I wound up doing the tutorial missions for money. The sucky thing is that skills have changed. My alt is old. She wasn't getting the starter skill books anymore which is why I wandered off to do the tutorial. It sucks because her skills are super dumb and useless.

But, do not fear. She now has two million ISK. That's right. Suck it! Enough to buy her some starter skill books and learn how to shoot a autocannon or two.

I'm hot shit. Hull upgrades here I come.

And I got a Venture! The world is amazingly simple when you have some veldspare in your hangar.

I may not know what I am or who I am anymore, but I do remember some of the basics. From here, we will see where things go. No rush. No worries. No responsibilities.

But maybe again... the adventure.

    I've actually been running through the Sister's of Eve arc - been years since I last did it. I happen to be bringing an old character and a Worm so I approach with serious overkill but it’s been surprising fun. I drop on grid, release my two super drones and start rooting for them. Just a few minutes ago, in the “Burning Down the Hive” mission one of the NPC opponent drones pointed my Worm which I must say quite incensed me. Almost unleashed my rockets on that little bastard but my two super drones, recognizing my peril, took the bugger down for me - adorable little kids, absolutely adorable.

    Not having to keep my eyes riveted to the combat, I’ve been paying attention to the story color and soaking up the pretty pictures. Not a bad way to pass some leisurely space time.

  2. Have you ever considered wormholes? It's a new experience each day. Sometimes it's running combat sites, sometimes it's gas harvesting and sometimes you get some PvP. Just going with the flow of what the game hands you.

  4. I was thinking about you recently - I was using a convenient WH to move some assets into my new home in Tenal. The out system was Oto - and rather than take the most direct route to Jita, I detoure a few systems "south" because I know Sujarento is where you and your dirty pirate friends live... I hope you're still out in space making people like me worry!

    Ah, to recapture the simplicity of those early hand-to-mouth experiences... get ISK to buy skill so I can use the next thing I need to make ISK to get skill to use another thing.

    I actually swapped to training an alt character and was trying to remember how to do things with so few skill points. It has been a while since every action plan required a skill plan first.

  6. Why do you hate Providence pilots, Sugar? Ebil piwate, denying us contracts. :3

    I am in a time, myself, where I am playing because I do not want Sunrise's story to end. The lull can be glossed over in any subsequent account. In the mean time, I blunder around waiting for a new inspiration.
