Not a lot for me to write about except the fact that we have lost 4 corps so far with one handing a station to c0ven as they left. moved out to the new staging area but now with our alliance crippled I'm quite worried.

My oh my has the last week been busy! Finals week and an increase in hours at work conspired to limit my in game time to three or so hours before classes. I usually took my rifter to a safe off of the A1 gate and watch the dictors try and catch me (earning my rifter the name "Greased up deaf guy") one time I forgot to switch out out of my close range vexor and was able to scare off the dictor long enough to get back to station (the vexor earned the name "Fat Man" because of the terrible speed due to the huge amount of plate).


Sunday night I logged on and found out a huge fleet fight was about to start so I hopped int0 my fleet mega "Team Player" and got in position. The battle was great. I almost got caught in a bubble and got called primary a few times but was able to get some good kills. We were making good progress of the c0ven/se battleship fleet when Pandemic Legion swooped in.

**These are my opinions and do not reflect the stance or feelings of anyone else in SYS-K or .UP.**

I think PL is in on it. Killed a few c0ven to keep up appearances but PL/c0ven/SE all seem to be in the same bed. Do I want IT to come down and save us? No. But some help wouldn't hurt. What i would like to see most would be to see everyone pull together and kick the reds out with or without help.


My non-essential supplies are in the process of being moved out while all my ships are insured and even my lowly coveter is armed to the teeth (see: suicide undock clearing smart bomber). In Fountain we had to run because we didn't have the resources to fight. I don't want to run anymore. I can't. I won't. As one of my corp mates said, "I'm going to keep fighting even if all I can do is try and bump ships with my pod."

They wanted a fight. Were gona give them hell.

A little History Ch.1

"Fleet jump jump." said the commander's voice in my head.

It still sent shivers down my spine. Despite having been out of the Caldari pod academy for six months i still wasn't used to having someone else think into my head. The thrill of the ship's controls exhilarated me and would continue to for many centuries after.

"Fleet warp to Darkbomb at 10km." Spoke the FC after a few minutes on the gate.

Another voice piped up, a female, and asked "What are our engagement rules?"

"If its not purple kill it, crew pods to." the FC said with an icy bite.

I aligned my Merlin towards Darkbomb and slipped into warp. My job was to point anything and everything I could so the res of the fleet could melt the enemy. As soon as I felt the warp bubble collapse I fired up my afterburner and locked up the closest ship I could. If i had to try and explain how a warp disruptor felt i would have to equate it to a tugging in your mind ans they try desperately to engage warp.

I knew something was wrong as soon as I had point. When pointing another capsuler it is like a tug-of-war with someone of similar strength, but with a standard ship it was like holding down a baby (not that i have ever held down a baby).

I immediately checked the ship's info.

"Sir, the ship I have point on are Galente civilians with no military or radical ties" I thought quickly into the fleet channel. "Permission to drop point?"

"Maintain point, yours ins secondary and will be neutralized momentarily." Thought back the FC.

"Sir these are civilians, they haven't done anything wrong!" I mentally shouted in to the channel.

"Not yet. But they will. You will hold point." chastised the FC.

"I wont. I can't. There is no profit worth the slaughter of the Innocent!" I said as i relaxed my hold on the civilian ship.

I felt the other ships locking computers like a light tingling all over my body. I didn't try to warp. I didn't even try to fight the ewar now assaulting my virtual seances. I felt my pod rocket out of what used to be my ship.


The door to my "cell" opened up. The stale air from outside was delicious compared to the stench of vomit, shit, and sour blood. In comparison to the darkness I had live in this last month the light from outside was blinding and total.

"Beat me again, I don't care. Kill me! I don't care!" I shouted through a mouthful of broken teeth.

"You want to save lives?" said a voice from behind the light.

"Save lives? No." I spat out along with a mouthful of blood.

The light from the hallway was starting to make me dizzy. Where my left arm used to be throbbed dully like the ghost of a limb. Had the cut it off or smashed it off? It didn't matter. All that existed was the cell, pain, and the disembodied voice in the light.

"What do you want?" spoke the voice from the light.

"Whats it to you, you bastard?" I said losing my cool. I didn't want to play games. I wanted to get the agony over with and return to the dark.

I felt a boot connect with the front of may face. My already broken facial bones howled and threatened to take me to unconsciousness. I hurt.

"I just want to fly." I gave up.

"That's the kind of answer i was looking for. They call me Yahrr and I happen to have a position available, that is if your interested." spoke the man as he came closer.

"If it gets me outta here and into a ship I'm in." I told Him.

He walked over and put something over my head and around my neck.

"Excellent. Now give me a call when you wake up." he said with a smile that made me uncomfortable.

Looking at him with confusion i asked, "Wake up? what do you me-"


I didn't Hear the pistol go off. I was sure I was dead for good. It took me a second to realize dead men can't think. I opened my eyes and tried to feel about. The clone tank opened and the attendant helped me to a nearby cot.

"Where am I?" I asked the attendant.

"Welcome to Galentian space sir. Everything is taken care of. You just relax for now and your boss will see you when your ready." he said with a slight galentian accent.

"It smells nice here." I mumbled.

I try to elaborate on that though but before I could sleep stole me away, Whole once again.

War & c0ven

For those of you who don't know (and so far my only subscriber is a corpmate), our alliance has been at war with the combined forces of Stain Empire and c0ven. Last night due to circumstances beyond my control (ie. girlfriend aggro) I logged on late to the CTA and missed the titan bridge. Because this I was able to just sit and listen to vent and the battle. Let me make my self clear that I have total respect to all of our FCs so I'm not going to bash anyone. At one point we had a break down in the chain of command and due to the FC being popped (not going to name our FCs for all the spis!) the main fleet was with out orders. It turned out just as you would expect it to.

On top of that the day before an expensive Pandemic Legion gang happened upon 4 dreads seiging on a c0ven POS. The battle went poorly and to be honest my moral was kinda low when I went to bed last night.

This morning over my breakfast of pancakes I brought up the DOTLAN map of Estoria and nearly choked. Not only had they been able to defend A1-AUH while I was asleep but have forced c0ven to drop sov in 3 more systems. While right now I'm not to sure if it was us (SYS-K) or Primary or one of our other allies but the fact of the matter is that they don't own it anymore. Since .UP. has joined SYS-K this puts the total sov losses to 2 for SYS-K and 7 for c0ven.

War usually is draining on ones wallet. I am happy to say that this is not that case for me. I am currently the largest supplier for Large Trimark Armor Pumps for SYS-K and friends in Estoria. While the supplies for the rigs have slowed down (especially fried logic circuits) the demand for them has also dropped lowering my bottom line. The drop in demand for the parts is in due part that no one else seems to be selling the rigs on the open market. Because of the war and numerous battleships going pop the demand for the rigs has shot through the roof. Having the only rigs on market (excluding red stations) theoretically means I can charge anything I want for the rigs. Alas, in the interest of keeping my home and not pissing of the alliance heads I have kept my prices reasonably low compared to what I could charge for them, and if the market stays this way, I'm looking at a nice nest egg to spend once this annoying war is over.
An alliance mate of mine named manasi wrote in his blog about Stain and c0ven's recent tactics and apparent spy network.
"Please realize that I know they exist, and I would not call for their
removal from the game as the CHOICE to use them should always be there. I
and my CEPTA brethren choose NOT to use them, I used to respect C0ven and Stain Empire, I no longer do so."
While I did not know Stain and c0ven back when things were all blue, I don't think less of them using their spy network to gain real time info on our fleet and our POS passwords. In fact, I'm damned impressed. With out getting into a whole all is fair in love, war, and politics argument, I just want to say that if you had that kind of extensive and effective spy network wouldn't you use it? I sure would. Would I try and get their POS passwords and bump out their logging on and AFK battleships and capitals? You can bet every ISK you have that I would. It's a lot easier to say you wouldn't do something until you have the opportunity to do so. Just sayin.
