Ocean's Zero, Part 3

Previously, on MinerBumping... JTClone Ares, leader of a rebel alliance called The Clone Republic, was approached by TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet and Captain Rick Tyson, who claimed to have high-level spies in CODEdot. They invited JTClone to join their conspiracy to plan a massive heist of New Order assets. JTClone enthusiastically agreed.


As a new member of the conspiracy, JTClone Ares was sworn to absolute secrecy. No one could ever be told what took place in the private chat.


Now all the rebels needed to do was hammer out the details. How would the stolen CODEdot assets be transferred to JTClone's alliance? JTClone volunteered to set up offices in each station. But Captain Rick and TheInternet didn't yet know the locations.


For maximum flexibility, TheInternet recommended that JTClone grant Captain Rick some roles in JTClone's alliance. That way, Rick wouldn't need to waste time coordinating every step with JTClone on the night of the heist.


JTClone suggested that Rick simply trade the stolen assets to him. However, there was no guarantee JTClone would be online at the time of the heist.


Besides, trading is risky.


The rebels' scheming was interrupted by some alarming news: There was a 50/50 chance the heist could take place immediately. Everyone's adrenaline started pumping.


JTClone's concerns about whether to trade or give Rick roles were put on hold as the conspirators fantasized about the heist.


The impact of the heist on CODEdot morale would be enormous. Might it even be... the end of the New Order?


JTClone imagined himself at the moment of glory, surrounded by his fellow rebels in the Anti-Ganking channel. He would be the ultimate hero of the resistance, the first rebel carebear to score a victory against the New Order. The "Fishing Spider" would become a legend. When viewed from this perspective, JTClone's earlier worries about giving out roles seemed so small, so insignificant.


JTClone granted Captain Rick a role that would enable him to rent offices. However, Rick didn't have the director role, which he'd need to be able to bring new corps into The Clone Republic alliance. There was no need, after all. They were only talking about transferring assets.


For the first time, TheInternet raised a new possibility: His high-level spies might be able to coordinate a defection. The spy could cause an entire corporation to leave CODEdot and join The Clone Republic. The propaganda effect would be collosal.


With the "director" role in JTClone's alliance, Rick could do pretty much whatever he wanted. Would JTClone be willing to take that risk--to give that power to someone he'd met barely an hour earlier?


TheInternet once again stressed how important it was that Rick be given the necessary roles. The New Order's downfall could be orchestrated at any moment.

  5. There's always a dramatic turn of some sort in those stories, I know it. What's it gonna be? I'm really worried there'll be some great CODE disaster in the next chapter, but everything will end well for all the participants, since it's New Year's Eve, and nothing bad can happen.

  6. JT might just be the most gullible player in EVE. This is definitely going to end bad for him.

    6. I would say Gorila that you did not defect, you just decided to have fun, since EVE is a game after all. ;)

  15. JT has given us a lot over the months he has played Eve, but my personal favorite work of his will always be his original set of rules regarding killing corpmates in his original mining corp.
