One of the many benefits of being the Saviour of Highsec is that I get reports of good news happening all across empire space.
I was delighted to hear from Agent Nerfbat Aldent, who passionately enforces the Code in the Verge Vendor region.
After StarSceeam's Mackinaw was destroyed by Nerfbat and Agent dcomcnfg, StarSceeam contacted Nerfbat and demanded an explanation. Little did he know, Nerfbat was already typing up one for him.
Possibly because his ship had just been destroyed, StarSceeam was already hostile. Nerfbat is an Agent of the New Order. That means he's a professional. He kept his cool.
StarSceeam is a carebear. That means he had greater difficulty keeping his cool.
It didn't take long for StarSceeam to issue his first threat. He had kill rights, and he would use them. It's unknown if he said that in Mine Teck's voice or not.
Nerfbat didn't see StarSceeam as his enemy. He saw him as a lost sheep and a potential friend.
StarSceeam was adamant. He would not pay for a mining permit, ever. Never ever ever.
After a few minutes of talking to Nerfbat, however, StarSceeam began to change his mind. It's like I always say: Our wallets are filled with the isk of miners who said they would "never" pay.
StarSceeam was interested in getting reimbursed for his loss. Nerfbat pointed out that the New Order doesn't do business with Code violators. He would need to turn his life around before reimbursement officer Ophidia Black would even speak to him.
StarSceeam relented, and paid his dues. But with a name like StarSceeam, you know it's only a matter of time before he betrays you.
In a fit of madness, StarSceeam attempted some kind of coup d'état against the New Order. CONCORD wasn't having it. Thus, we learn what the deal was with the Raven on yesterday's "Kills of the Week" post.
There's no reason not to post the killmail again, though. It's a lovely sight.
Instead of pledging loyalty to me, StarSceeam used his bio to express his rage. I'm still hopeful that StarSceeam can be reformed. If he sends the New Order any more money, though, I'll nevertheless keep my eye on him for signs of betrayal.
