constantly changing: of fate's fickle whims

is his name dusty protagonist? Like, not as filthy as you, but still unclean? - butters

i'm not going to lie. it's been a pretty bleak couple of months for me in eve. my lovely girlfriend and gorgeous 11 month old (i can't believe she's almost a year old already!) daughter and i have recently moved out of the town we had been living in to a new town, a suburb a bit closer to the big city. it was hard, mostly because the baby is so young and both me and the girlfriend grew up in the town we left, but over the years, the neighborhood where we had been living (which is also consequently where we both grew up and where we met 20 years later) has been rapidly deteriorating... to the point where my motorcycle was stolen from in front of our house in broad daylight! if that doesn't make it hard to raise a child in a place without worrying 24/7... sheesh

anyway, as we're getting settled and established here at the new place, eve has taken a back seat to the RL action. i'd like to say that it's been regrettable, but the timing was just so perfect that 520 slipped itself into hibernation with the boys being simultaneously pulled off their computer chairs to various other interests, activities and responsibilities all at the same time. we've been able to keep in touch though. text messages, twitter, facebook, email... late night phone calls from members who shall remain nameless... all serve to keep us up to date on the goings on in each others' lives

although it may seem like it, i'm not quitting. at least not entirely. currently, my account with DP is unsubbed, but in his stead, my market and trade account which hosts my alt frogstomper is running strong. it's a kind of crafty set up. let me explain:

since moving, my trusty 2003 dell laptop (which i have been using to eve on since december of last year (lol)) has taken a turn for the worse. the usb ports are all pretty much broken thanks to a curious baby's disregard for the delicacies of technology. the microphone port has been wobbly and i'm reduced to logging into and controlling eve from the touchpad. that combined with the terrible satellite internet that i'm stuck using until i can find a company to assist me with an alternative... it has been awful. i won't go into any more details

in spite of all this, frogstomper is raking in the cash without the burden of DP's ship losing habits to support. eventually, i'll have a new pc up and running as well as a genuine broadband connection to plug into and i'll be back in action. and thanks to frogstomper's expanded money making abilities that have given DP access to an even wider assortment of ships as well as his probing prowess, it'll be better than ever

until then, i'll just continue to watch from the sidelines as life goes on in molden heath (and elsewhere in eve). in the mean time, i'll try to entertain myself by posting stories along with some explanations of some interesting and unique projects that i have created (and not had the time to blog about) and am a part of

of life and love in low sec

in ur blog post, describe my pickle pls - sard caid
ur poast would be LEGENDARY - lt graham

i often sit at my computer, intending to write a cool new blag poast about spaceship battles and junk and stuff. often. honest

but stuff happens

for instance, today i popped open the laptop, logged in eve, opened a new poast thing thing and start trolling my friends for a terrible opening quote. it's all going well with the typically veiled (and not so veiled) sexual advances, penis jokes and self indulgent poor spelling dominating my chat windows

suddenly, battlecruisers

my blog forgotten, i went from typey type mode to ZOGM MUST KILL W/FIRE mode

that in mind, i'm going to say some stuff like really quick before someone that needs to die walks across my front lawn

selectively, of course. i want amarr and minmatar pilots... logi is good, bc a must, piracy experience not required but pvp experience a definite necessity

that's what it says in the post. so far i've got 3 caldari pilots and a gallente pilot. fml

it might help recruiting if the boys were more active on the kb but everyone has their priorities. i'll hold it down for the lot of them


i'm training t2 large arties for sniperpest goodness

i'll probably do a machariel one day, too. nothing says "LOL FU" like epic dps from a BS as it zings by at vagabond speeds with a heavy neut and 3x the ehp of a shield hac

that also means minmatar bs v and gallente bs v are in the pipe. lol@having my skills planned for the next 4 months

so very much unlike me


it was my RL birthday in august!

i got a few gifts from friends (you guys rock) but most notably was an armageddon navy issue from an anonymous person (ok it was SARD CAID (rigs courtesy of vanderie<33))>used promptly to whack some dudes in hegfunden

i was solo on the station undock at first until i realized that they were dying and not deaggressing so weboide (who was there to save me in case my bday ship lost too much armor) undocked his archon and md undocked his abaddon and we wiped the field with white hot lasers for great justice

carriers: unsporting? maybe. fun? you betcha!


speaking of hegfunden-

we've been tearing that system up for weeks now. some corps that used to be in avalon alliance live there along with (more recently) some alliance none of us had heard of that wants to try their hand at low sec

apparently they've declared hegfunden to be theirs and when you're in there you better state your business and/or gtfo


totally unsponsored plug time!!

i was rolling with alex medvedov and the czech death squad toward amamake when we got blobbed by eve-uni. i would show kb links, but we ran like ninnies once they spiked and though we had a snag up on the gate, we all got out intact

anyway, while i was docked up in egmar, i saw sassy b pop into local with me and i saw this link in her bio to some blog of hers or something

i guess she drawed sum spaceships one time, maybe? i don't know but they made me happy. i suggest you check them out right now


so i guess that's it

oh wait, one more thing- molden heath regional pirate forums! if you're a pirate anywhere and want to banter and chat with dudes in molden heath, check them out. you can always come register as a guest and post pics to my hot naked b~ i mean cats doing funny stuff thread. yeah. cats

ps- sard's pickle: it is enigmatically delicious. a twisting mind-fuck of dill goodness, hidden behind a crisp crunch and salty finish. surely, there is none like it

molden heath: come for the pvp, stay for the comedic relief

i'm lol'ing all over my tits and ass - bryan havoc

it was late on a typical saturday evening. with the night still relatively young, myself one of my new recruits thorasine were whetting our appetites by camping a primae we had chased into a dead end system. as we were fighting the boredom by bumping each other around the gate, a shuttle landed on us.... and didn't jump

his mission item dropped, i looted it and we all went on our merry way

that is, until he convo'd me

what follows is our conversation:

Dirty Protagonist > hello
Blackfyre 001 > o/
Blackfyre 001 > game froze :(, I clicked jump long before you could have locked lol
Dirty Protagonist > shame
Blackfyre 001 > it happens
Dirty Protagonist > are you upset?
Blackfyre 001 > nope
Blackfyre 001 > just a shuttle
Dirty Protagonist > do you need this data card?
Blackfyre 001 > tho you cost me my mission, but that won't set me back much at all
Blackfyre 001 > yes plz
Blackfyre 001 > give you 200k for it if you bring it to Altbrard
Blackfyre 001 > to IX - Moon 8 - Concord Testing Facilities
Blackfyre 001 > will you bring it for that?
Dirty Protagonist > hold on a second
Dirty Protagonist > someone else convo'd me
Blackfyre 001 > np
Dirty Protagonist > hold on dude
Dirty Protagonist > this is messed up
Blackfyre 001 > what is that?
Dirty Protagonist > there's a cop after me man
Blackfyre 001 > a cop?
Dirty Protagonist > yeah dude
Dirty Protagonist > like a concord guy
Blackfyre 001 > in low sec?
Dirty Protagonist > hold on
Dirty Protagonist > i think i lost him
gooch 456 > FREEZE
gooch 456 > WHOOP WHOOP
Dirty Protagonist > SHIT
Dirty Protagonist > dude, unscramble me
gooch 456 > im going to have to ask you to pull over, sir
Dirty Protagonist > i can't pull over any more!!
Dirty Protagonist > you've got me as pulled over as i can get =[
Dirty Protagonist > seriously, you're going to blow up m ship
gooch 456 > SIR
Dirty Protagonist > wtf did i do?
Blackfyre 001 > lol, well if you kill him, can you bring me the encoded data chip :P
gooch 456 > are you aware that you are in possession of an illegally obtained data chip, Mr. Protagonist?
Dirty Protagonist > what?
gooch 456 > that chip is the express property of CONCORD
Dirty Protagonist > no
gooch 456 > I'm going to have to ask you to turn around and put your hands on the side of you ship
Dirty Protagonist > you have to be shitting me
gooch 456 > You have the right to remain silent
gooch 456 > SIR
gooch 456 > Where did you get this chip, sir?
Dirty Protagonist > i got it from this dude's wreck
Dirty Protagonist > I GOT IT FROM HIS WRECK OK?
gooch 456 > Is this true?
gooch 456 > Blackfyre , is he telling the truth?
Blackfyre 001 > yes, that is my chip :P
Blackfyre 001 > and this is probably one of the best times I have had in eve lol, awesome job guys
gooch 456 > Are you aware that that particular chip was STOLEN FROM THE HEIMATAR MUSEUM OF NATURAL SCIENCE??!?!
Dirty Protagonist > look man, i just pulled it out of his shuttle
gooch 456 > at approximately 02:00 EVE, a suspect was seen fleeing the scene
Dirty Protagonist > seirously it was just sitting on the gate
Dirty Protagonist > you gotta believe me i didn't steal anything
gooch 456 > I"LL TASE YOU
gooch 456 > its apparent you have the right to remain silent
gooch 456 > but not the ability
gooch 456 > I'm afraid you're going to have to come with me, sir
gooch 456 > both of you
gooch 456 > get in the car now
gooch 456 > NOW
Dirty Protagonist > fuck this. i'm outta here
gooch 456 > STOP
Dirty Protagonist > jam drones GO
gooch 456 > WHOOP WHOOP
gooch 456 > unit 456 requesting backup
Dirty Protagonist > weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Blackfyre 001 > lol
gooch 456 > im in pursuit in a suspect Dirty Protagonist
gooch 456 > citizen, im going to have to ask you to leave the area
gooch 456 > before i book your for illicit theft
gooch 456 > am i clear?

sometimes the aftermath is more fun than the actual scrap

summer update 2010

"u guys don't just come into local. you knock down the damn door" - hoe bag

it's been a really long time since i posted. rest assured, i have not been sitting idly

since my last post, i returned to the old corp along with the core guys. we fooled around in awormhole for a bit, did a couple high sec wars and woke up in molden heath. we messed around with some ideas like changing the corp name (we were high school musical for a bit) but in the end, the call of low sec and its emergent pvp environment proved to be too much for us to resist

since moving into istodard, we have made some fantastic new friends- our politely coy pirate brethren of the gentlemen of low moral fibre, the notorious (serd cain E-ON FAMOUSE~~~) solo and small gang pvper sard caid and his gunpoint diplomacy crew, as well as some very crafty russians in delait just to name just a few

our exploits have been pretty overwhelming. coming from high sec where a 3-5b isk war was considered a smashing success, operations such as our absolute destruction of an ethereal dawn capital gang or our POS assault against electus matari (the major antipirate/rp alliance in the area) put that paltry sum and tiny effort quite soundly to shame

but large scale combat has never been our thing. thankfully, molden heath has proven to be an absolute haven for solo and small gang pvp. 1-5 guys can consistently go out and find fantastically fun fights all over the region any day of the week

hopefully i can spare a bit more time now to devote to relating tales of our exploits and the beauty of the molden heath region and its denizens
