Carry On Friend > sorry was afk how may I help youAgent Carry On Friend was off-duty and relaxing in a station when she was approached by a highsec miner named Inel Amure. More and more, the miners are becoming proactive about getting mining permits; they're coming to us.
Inel Amure > hi hi
Inel Amure > me and my frends gona mining here
Inel Amure > i prefer to pay this 10mil and mining in peace
Inel Amure > coz many times im mining in afk till my cargo is full so i wana prevent any probs
Just a few lines into their conversation, Inel admitted to Carry that she engaged in AFK mining. Carry rolled up her sleeves and got to work. An Agent of the New Order is never truly off-duty.
Carry On Friend > Well that is fine but you must not afk mine even with a permitInel did what a lot of criminals do: She shrugged off her own crimes as being less severe than others' crimes.
Carry On Friend > - No AFK mining allowed. All miners are expected to remain at their keyboards at all times, and are required to prove their presence by responding in local when requested by the Supreme Protector or one of his Agents.
Inel Amure > hmm with delay is okay coz im mining till i work
Carry On Friend > How often do you afk mine
Inel Amure > best way to work and do something in eve
Inel Amure > i duno maybe 1 time in few days
Inel Amure > im not super super miner
Carry On Friend > Because we do offer afk miner passes but they cost ALOTThen things got interesting. Carry proposed the sale of an "AFK miner pass". Is that allowed under the Code? Had Carry gone rogue? Was it an elaborate sting operation? This is called drama, folks. Keep reading.
Inel Amure > like
Inel Amure > ?
Carry On Friend > At least 500 mill a year
Inel Amure > hmm thats 40mil per month ?
Carry On Friend > Yes
Inel Amure > ok lets do this
Carry On Friend > Where do you mine?Carry needed more information about these AFK miners and their highsec infrastructure. She got it.
Inel Amure > normal ore
Inel Amure > i need ore
Carry On Friend > But where? I need the system for our db
Inel Amure > here or vouskiaho
Carry On Friend > Do you need a pos protected as well?
Inel Amure > i belive yes
Inel Amure > i can offer ya this lets start with this 10mil if we have any prob we will go to other planBefore the negotiations began in earnest, Carry warned Inel that she shouldn't trust anyone in EVE. Scammers abound--even in highsec!
Inel Amure > in montly payment with 45 mil i thing
Inel Amure > thats 540 per year
Carry On Friend > See we don't do monthly payments because there are alot of scammers out there
Carry On Friend > Its a bad world and Eve is a game where you do not trust anyone, thats why we do not take payments
Carry On Friend > We need to have a year per paid in full
Inel Amure > i see what u mean
Inel Amure > ok lets make this i wil pay for us 3 - the first month - so we can see how is going here - if everything is well we will pre payid 1 year for afk etcInel wanted to stretch the payments out, while Carry wanted payment right away. She did not want to be scammed by the miner, which is understandable.
Carry On Friend > Sorry eve is a cruel game and I do not know you, so you can understand my caution
Inel Amure > its same for me mate i know what u mean
Carry On Friend > Ok how about we do half now and if it works out then we get the other half
Inel Amure > other are moving to hento till we talk i have to talk to them, they are not so afk like me
Inel Amure > im the prob here coz i work till mining
Carry On Friend > Well as I said I would be willing to do half now and half next month for you
Inel Amure > how much it will be ?
Inel Amure > do we can setup pos here in hento ?Given the extraordinary and increasing power of the New Order, it's only natural that we, like the powers of nullsec, should rent out space. Technically we don't hold sovereignty, but neither do nullsec coalitions. Even the nullsec alliances themselves don't hold in-game sovereignty over a system after it's rented out.
Inel Amure > a regular normal pos
Inel Amure > for spot
Carry On Friend > yes we wpuld allow that as well under the above terms
Inel Amure > give me little time let me talk to my frends
Inel Amure > i cant take decision alone
Inel Amure > u can understand me i belive
Carry On Friend > Hent is our home, we don't like to get scammedA lot of EVE players don't like the whole space-rental thing. They believe it turns an allegedly fun videogame into a bunch of work for space lawyers. Yet it is the way of the future.
Inel Amure > i dont like also belive me
Inel Amure > i started this convo not to scam at all
Inel Amure > we bouth have benefits from this
Carry On Friend > Yes we do
Inel Amure > im not stiuped and 1 thing i hate - is scam
Inel Amure > same as u do i belive
Carry On Friend > So I have some good news for you, my superior has told me that if you sign a deal with in the hour then we can do 1 billion for one year.Inel had authority to negotiate, but she had to continually run things by her associates. Carry strongly encouraged Inel to have all affiliated parties read the Code.
Carry On Friend > Which covers your pos your firends and your afkness.
Inel Amure > sounds good
Inel Amure > im talking to others btw
Inel Amure > im okay for this i dont mind - im wathing other to deside
Carry On Friend > Make sure you link them this because they need to understand the rules they will need to live by http://www.minerbumping.com/p/the-code.html
Inel Amure > from what i read after we payd we cant break the codeFor the first time, Inel began to seriously read the terms of the Code. However, she was already dead set on renting space from CODEdot.
Inel Amure > and i belive no 1 of us will start saysing something
Inel Amure > at all if he gona be killed
Inel Amure > is there anything specific we can do wrong ?
Carry On Friend > Not if you follow the rules listed there
Inel Amure > ok we can do this i did talk to my guys - we will send ya 300mil now - after the first mont over we will send ya other 700 - becouse we do bussines for first time with you - if we all are okay in our deal we are good to go for a realy long tearm as
Inel Amure > relatios
Carry On Friend > Can you do 50%?
Inel Amure > as you say others are afraid of scam like we move and being scamendRenting out highsec space is no different from renting out nullsec space. The negotiations continued to drag on. However, just as with nullsec renting, it was a necessary evil because there were no alternatives. A miner can't safely mine in highsec without approval from the New Order. Carry and Inel became increasingly confident that a deal would be completed; they simply needed to hammer out the specifics. Would Inel's highsec renting experience be a satisfactory one, or would it end in heartbreak?
Carry On Friend > no I understand but as my director said we can only do the one billion if paid in full
Inel Amure > 1,2 is not a big deal if we have normal relationships
Carry On Friend > I have to talk to him for a minute to make sure we can arrange a payment schedual
Carry On Friend > He thinks that 500 would be fair as a down payment, its not 50% so your not fully commited either
Inel Amure > 1 moment
Carry On Friend > Noo problem, god negotiations are brutal eh?
Inel Amure > i hate this
Inel Amure > im diplo 9 years
Inel Amure > i hate it
