Previously, on MinerBumping... This happened:
If this were a movie or TV show, I might have said something to alexhunter seyah like, "There! That's the first honest thing you've said to me." But this isn't a movie or a TV show. This is real life.
Errant carebears are like my children. So I treat them as such. And sometimes, with enough counseling, they begin to treat me like the Father of the New Order that I am. I had a heart-to-heart with alexhunter, and he was finally starting to open up.
He claimed to have only 9 million isk in his wallet. Not enough for a mining permit, but that didn't mean he couldn't make a contribution to the New Order.
I don't need to "sell" New Order shares. I just describe them in the most matter-of-fact manner possible and they sell themselves.
alexhunter may have slightly overestimated the size of my wallet. I'm the Saviour of Highsec, not the SOMER of Blink.
There was no denying it--my Agents did alexhunter a world of good when they arranged our introduction. In highsec these days, when your mining vessel is on fire, that's kind of like a "meet-cute".
Still, alexhunter was set on getting more money. Which was weird, because it's what you'd expect from a bot-aspirant, not a repentant miner.
The great thing about emergent gameplay is that it doesn't necessarily cost money. Even someone with a trial account can wander around trade hubs in a rookie ship and help spread the Code.
Another sign of a bot-aspirant: He felt entitled to get something for nothing. What alexhunter didn't understand is that it's not worth it to try joining the New Order when you haven't repaid your debts. It's just awkward. Our Agents get itchy trigger-fingers when someone like that is around.
alexhunter was having difficulty maintaining the façade. It was time to cut him loose.
Though alexhunter objected that I hadn't given him any free money, I'd given him all he really needed. It was up to him to use it. Instead, he decided to join a convo with the Agents who had previously killed him...
Would our heroes have any more luck than I did?
alexhunter revealed that his mind had indeed been infected by doubts spread by rebels.
But just as our Agents started to answer his questions, alexhunter suddenly cut out of the conversation.
Back when alexhunter was first ganked by the New Order, his bio contained a list of two "rules of EVE". After the latest encounter, he added a few more:
...It seems alexhunter seyah still has a lot to learn.
