The Gamis Borderlands, Part 1

The New Order is an unstoppable war machine. No one disputes it; our killboard stats are undeniable. We destroy countless bot-aspirants on a daily basis. But in EVE as in life, it's much more difficult to build things than to break them.


Agent Kalorned knows this better than most. In order to create a sustainable, Code-compliant community in Gamis, he's had to establish ties with the local community. By creating relationships and building trust, Kalorned has greatly increased his ability to gather actionable intelligence and respond quickly to threats.


Even so, protecting Gamis and other nearby highsec systems requires a proactive approach. Once you understand the geography of the Gamis area, you'll see why:


Gamis is located on the border of Derelik's lowsec systems. The borderland is also the gateway to a few highsec "islands". If our Agents stopped at the edge of lowsec, the New Order's enemies could use the area as a safe haven. Furthermore, lowsec residents could skip in and out of highsec without regard for the Code.


Our Agents have the authority to take any and all measures needed to safeguard highsec. Despite the carebears' taunts of "you bully people in highsec because you'd never make it in lowsec", our Agents pursue offenders no matter where they flee. During one such pursuit, Kalorned happened to discover a Mackinaw bouncing around between lowsec asteroid belts.


As anyone who lives near Gamis should know, Kalorned declared a "DMZ" in the borderland. It's simply the only way to keep the area from becoming a nest of bot-aspirant sympathizers. Steroid Gontarsky's Mackinaw was found in violation of this order.


Luckily, Kalorned was willing to let the miner off with a warning, if he paid for a mining permit plus a fee to cover the costs/risks associated with Kalorned's lowsec patrol. The miner stalled. A new ship appeared on Kalorned's D-scan.


With time running out, Kalorned had to make the call to destroy Steroid's Mackinaw. The miner was simply too slow in paying.


Steroid was disappointed in himself for not being able to arrange a transfer of isk quickly enough. Judging by his remarks in local, he also allocated some of the blame to our Agent.


Steroid Gontarsky was a pitiable miner. Yet the mercy of highsec occasionally alights upon those in the borderlands. Agent Svara Eir, one of Kalorned's intelligence assets, assisted in the kill. She was determined to help the miner learn how to play the game.


To begin with, Svara advised him to dock up, rather than trying to escape by bouncing between asteroid belts.


EVE's mechanics make it very easy to avoid combat, assuming your enemy hasn't caught up to you yet. Svara enlightened the miner. Armed with the new knowledge, Steroid could easily protect his vessel the way a responsible EVE player should. Now it was time for Svara to bask in the miner's gratitude.


To be continued...

    4. That's a victory, Anon. Dying is part of the game.That lossmail was generated in the name of fun, something the average bot-aspirant has never experienced in Eve.

      It is touching that you think we're so good as to be invincible, though. I'm glad to know our public holds us in such high regards.

  3. Victims? There are no "victims" in a game. That's just silly.

  4. meh... I would make a comment about this lowsecer being a Veers alt but clearly he is not as he is in lowsec! something which veers would never do even on a throw away alt.

    3. Ah yeah you are right I don't know how to PvP and to be honest it frightens the shit out of me, it's far more safer to be docked up in station in a one man corp and make billions in afk incursions.

    1. It appears that once again, I was right. Your tear-laden threats yesterday to never visit Minerbumping.com again were predictably false.

      I've never met a carebear who ever told the truth.

      But your presence does prove one thing: The New Order, and the practice of ganking carebears in general, is fantastic for player retention. You guys just can't get enough of us.

    2. Ming Tso I've never met a carebear who ever told the truth.
      Quite right mingle, Code carebears never tell the truth. Its against their nature.

    3. What I want to know is why you people always have the knee-jerk reaction to invoke "Nazi's" and "Hitler" every single time one of you people get a mining barge popped?

      Seriously though way to keep it classy...

    1. I will quote another section of the Code that is relevant to this case; hear now the holy words of Supreme Protector James 315:

      "Q. HA HA I am mining ice right now, you can't stop me!

      As Supreme Protector, some may expect me to doggedly enforce the rules at all times against all offenders. This is a misperception of my role. Aside from those who have purchased indulgences, I will bump whomever I choose, whenever I choose. Your mining operations are entirely at my mercy. If I feel like stopping you from mining, I will; if not, I won't."

    2. Yeah love the bullshit clause.

    3. A message to all miners, Hakeri succeeds from the New Order of high sec. We have declared independence.

      Delete
    4. You are correct. The success of your operations is completely dependent on the New Order and Saviour of Highsec, James 315.

    5. You mean secedes. I hope your combat skills exceed your English skills.

  9. We succeeded in seceding from James magnanimous alliance. The whole of Panorad is now CODE alliance free. This includes Hakeri.

    1. When we deem you important enough to deal with, we will deal with you; and until then, we will continue to enforce the Code according to our agenda and priorities.

    2. Hey anom @6:59,

      This may not have been the smartest post you made. I hear one way to bring out the wolves are to taunt them.

      See if you kept your mouth shut your operation could have gone on indefinitely with-out interference. Now you just attracted the entire Code. alliance and other corps and alliances friendly to the New Order to shut you down by taunting us.

      Tell me how that makes any sense?

    3. I don't know if people are normally this vindictive or clever, but calling the attention of my enemy towards my other enemies would be 'sensible'.

      For instance, were I under attack, feigning bravado from another group of miners could draw attention away from myself. I doubt your estimation of miner honor or integrity would let you rule out such a possibility.

    4. Quote from star: "I doubt your estimation of miner honor or integrity would let you rule out such a possibility."

      eh... My experience with most miners have come down to either being called Hitler, or a conversation breaking down to IRL threats and the throwing around of Homophobic and racial slurs.

      You will have to excuse my skepticism here.

    5. I think you read that backwards. I mean that *because* you are skeptical of miner honor and integrity, you you have a hard time thinking they *would not* try to save themselves by sacrificing some of their kinsfolk just down the way.

      Delete
    6. I think I meant for that second 'you' in a row to be a 'would'. I'd delete it and fix it, but then people might wonder what fool thing I said, and I'd rather they knew than imagined worse. xD

  10. I've been to Gamis once or twice... that place is an underdeveloped, lawless backwater. I thought I was in 0.1 sec space when I jumped in. Thank the Saviour for noble Agents like Kalorned, who spearheads the civilizing of those wild lands.

  11. Speaking of lawless backwaters where were you when this happened? https://zkillboard.com/kill/45678107/

  12. I've been to Gamis twice. I can tell you that Kalorned has done a fine job in bringing civilization to the frontier. Now, if New Order Logistics would do a better job of bringing weapons to the front, that would be dandy. However, John has been doing a very poor job of managing alliance logistics.

    It's almost like NOL isn't really a logistics corp.
