Double Double Toil and Trouble
The martyrdom of Erotica 1 and her now-infamous "blank reason" ban has only brought the good people of highsec closer together.
New Order shareholder Slave A00073078, who owned no small number of shares already, was inspired to do something extraordinary. Recall that just before Erotica 1's ban, the dynamic doubler transferred 39 billion isk to purchase 39,000 shares. Now it was Slave's turn to make a grand gesture.
Count those zeroes carefully.
Slave A00073078 is now the second-largest owner of New Order stock. Her purchase of an additional 39,000 shares sent us past the 309, 310, 311, 312, 313, 314, 315, 316, 317, 318, 319, 320, 321, 322, 323, 324, 325, 326, 327, 328, 329, 330, 331, 332, 333, 334, 335, 336, 337, 338, 339, 340, 341, 342, 343, 344, 345, 346, and 347 billion marks. It earned her a Triple-Tredecuple Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™, something few would have expected to see again.
Eagle-eyed readers may wonder what happened to the 308 billion mark, since we were last at 307 billion. Just before Slave's order came in, Levarris Hawk purchased an additional 315 shares and sent us over the 308 billion mark, earning him a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™. Hey, don't knock it. It's still worthy of a hat-tip, even if you're the Supreme Protector.
Over a third of a trillion isk worth of New Order shares have been purchased. Our ganker fund has over a hundred billion isk at the moment. If you're a highsec carebear, now would be a really good time to make sure you've got your permit.
