The Sky Gods Fortune had a new director. After nearly 80 minutes of loyal service, TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet completed his climb up the corporate ladder. He was now only a heartbeat away from the corp's highest office. The corp's founder and CEO, Scoot Sollete, was deeply impressed by TheInternet.
Scoot Sollete > kkIf TheInternet harbored dreams of becoming CEO, he kept them to himself.
Scoot Sollete > you're a director now.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > cool, thanks
Scoot Sollete > mhmm
Scoot Sollete > like we could claim the POS atm.Now that he was a full director, TheInternet was told to do a bunch of work for the corp. However, TheInternet wasn't interested in running errands at that moment.
Scoot Sollete > get like a days worth of fuel
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > id rather just haul all the POS stuff, etc in one load
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > we've got plenty of time to get a POS up, let's wait until we've got all our ducks in a row before we get that set up too
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > ive still got to get all this ore buyback stuff sorted out
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > im just about to log out, but I'll grab the info for you tomorrowInstead of working, TheInternet called it an early night. But he planned to hit the ground running the next day. He had big plans for the corp.
Scoot Sollete > what TZ are you on?
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > north america
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > alrighty well I'm out, cu tomorrow
However, the next morning...
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > uhmmTheInternet awoke to find a completely different picture. He was no longer a director. All of his roles had been stripped from him. Scoot even took the 100 million isk that TheInternet had deposited in the corp wallet.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > Scoot Sollete why are my roles gone? You've got my ore buyback ISK now
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I can't take my ISK back or anything
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I had put 100m in Wallet Division 4 and now its gone
Scoot Sollete > i know.
Scoot Sollete > i took it
Scoot Sollete > im not stealing itSomething had changed, indeed. Scoot was incredibly suspicious of TheInternet. Now he insisted on a full API background check of TheInternet. No longer would he accept the bits and pieces of information that had satisfied him the previous day.
Scoot Sollete > we just had a bunch of shit happen
Scoot Sollete > i made you director. kinda warry
Scoot Sollete > for secruity reasons, i need a full account api and see everything.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > i wasn't even online? how can I be responsible for anyu of this stuff that you said happened?Scoot explained that in the time since TheInternet had logged off, he'd uncovered a spy within the corp. Scoot was willing to return TheInternet's 100 million isk, but he would not give him any authority in the corp until he submitted to a full background check.
Scoot Sollete > but i did get a person who was planning on stealing.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > If I was planning on stealing, why would I leave money with the corp
Scoot Sollete > I gave you your money. so im not a complete dick.
Scoot Sollete > I'm just being super paranoid atn.
Scoot Sollete > Yezekiah Ben-Elyon this guyA corp infiltrator had made himself known to Scoot and began making demands. It shattered Scoot's sense of security. However, TheInternet made a good point in his own defense: Why would a corp thief deposit 100 million isk with a corp he planned on stealing from?
Scoot Sollete > he was threatening things.
Scoot Sollete > i just don't know who to trust.
As if there hadn't been enough drama for the day, another important piece of information came to light. Shut It Down declared war against the corp.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I assume that he is tied to this war somehow?The industrial corp's CEO couldn't handle all of the chaos. Luckily, TheInternet kept a cool head. Though no longer a director, he stepped up to the plate.
Scoot Sollete > seperate event
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I wouldn't be sos sure, if all of the sudden you've got a spy/corp thief, AND a war, it's probably not a coincidence
Scoot Sollete > idk.
Scoot Sollete > everything kind of happened pretty fast.
Scoot Sollete > basically that dude i linked, he was offering us protection and planning on stealing things.TheInternet's expertise was indispensable. He understood life in modern highsec. Every industrial corp is constantly under threat from Code enforcers, who attack from every angle.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I'm pretty good with figuring out what scammers are really up to, I might be able to provide you with an angle you hadn't thought of
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > hmm yeah I'm pretty sure the war and the threats were linked
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > Shut It Down is a pro-CODE. corporation
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I've had to deal with them before, this is exactly how they operate
Scoot Sollete > Vivi Flamez you okay?Scoot took a few moments to catch his breath and comfort a fellow corp member. The corp member was shaken, but was mining to calm his nerves.
Vivi Flamez > so far
Scoot Sollete > not tramatized?
Vivi Flamez > with that jerk kinda
Vivi Flamez > but i am mining
Scoot Sollete > I'll give you roles for wallet division IV. Just too paranoid to give director again. Seem fair?Seeing how important TheInternet's leadership was to the corp, Scoot offered to skip the background check and make TheInternet a mining director again--but not a full director. That wasn't enough for TheInternet, though. He felt he had proven himself trustworthy.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > not really, I feel like we had worked past the trust issue last night, so I'm not really pleased with being lumped in with a scammer
Scoot Sollete > i REALLY want to have this corp up and running.
Scoot Sollete > look im sorry. like deeply sorry.
Scoot Sollete > but im just really weary.
Scoot Sollete > im not trying to sound desperate. I really want you to help the corp out. I'm just a little tramatized from that dude.
Scoot Sollete > I'll give you the roles back.Scoot relented. TheInternet was restored to full director status, and not a moment too soon. War was on the horizon. And it would be up to TheInternet to lead the corp to victory, or death.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > alright, well I appreciate it, I just want to build something up
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > One piece of advice though, don't widen the circle until we know who we can trust
