The Mystery of the Miasmos

The world can be a chaotic and confusing place. The same goes for highsec. As our name implies, the New Order brings order to chaos. Where there is confusion, we bring understanding.


When something mysterious is going on in highsec, an Agent is deployed to investigate. For example, an Agent might try to answer the question, "Why is that guy over there mining without a permit?"


Agent Alexander Kirenski encountered an enigmatic miner in the Ghesis system. ishikawa Aurilen equipped his Miasmos, an industrial ship, with four mining laser upgrades--and no mining lasers. How does such a ship come into existence? Was ishikawa a clueless newbie?


Newbie indeed: ishikawa's pod was worth over 770 million isk. Something strange was afoot. Alexander was on the case.


ishikawa claimed total ignorance. He had no idea who I was, or what the Code was. It's funny, for a guy who didn't know the Code, he sure violated it a lot.


Even after being told about the Code and the need for a mining permit, ishikawa refused to comply. He only cared about money, so he demanded some.


Now Alexander, a fairly new Agent, was put to the test. Carebears love to say that they'll "never" pay. Our Agents are trained to reject such statements. We know that modern highsec is a place where justice is always served in due course.


Despite being a "new" player mysteriously equipped with expensive implants, ishikawa threatened to hunt Alexander down. You shouldn't be surprised to see this particular miner behave in such a belligerent manner. He'd been flying a combat Miasmos, after all. He had a warrior spirit.


ishikawa was willing to let the whole Miasmos gank go. He only cared about his infinitely more expensive pod. Honour, dignity, the Code... nothing mattered to this greedy carebear except money. Or did it?


Layer upon layer of mystery was peeled off the Miasmos pilot. He'd gone AFK because of something happening "really fast" in real life. He didn't have the two seconds he would've needed to dock up. Intriguing!


Alexander left no stone unturned. In the event of a real-life emergency, it takes a miner less than one second to quit EVE and automatically warp away. ishikawa didn't have that much time. This guy must have one heck of an exciting life. He probably needs to mine in highsec just to get his heart rate below 150 beats per minute for a few hours each day.


On the other hand, maybe he was just another lying little carebear with no excuse for his outrageous behavior.


It became increasingly unlikely that ishikawa would buy a permit that day. Alexander knew he was running out of time, so he raised the issue that had been puzzling him from the moment he'd taken ishikawa's case: Why was this poor newbie in possession of such an expensive pod?


ishikawa claimed to have received his implants from a mysterious benefactor, and he was in absolutely no mood to reveal his or her identity. Every question this carebear answered merely produced more questions. Alexander could only pin ishikawa's picture to the board, attach a few strings, and hope more information would come in later. ishikawa's obsessive secrecy was itself a violation of the Code. What was he hiding? For now, Alexander had other miners to gank. But he didn't give up on his pursuit of the truth. One day, he would get answers.

    2. Of course its totally made up. Like an 'agent' of code would undock, nevermind shooting at something that can *gasp* shoot back?
      Yup, totally made up.

  2. And yet more Code Victories :D

    Where was AG on that one?

  3. Where'd he get the fiery kernite in his ore hold from? A Miasmos doesn't have a drone bay. Was he using it as a jetcan?

  4. Weekend totals:

    Burn Amarr: 481.06 billion destroyed.
    Unrest In Uedama: 350.91 billion destroyed.

    Weekend total: 831.97 billion in death to those who insist on operating in New Order space without a valid permit. That's almost one trillion destroyed in 3 days.

    Good guys win again. The entire Goonswarm Federation wishes to take this time to thank our New Order brothers, with a special thank you to brave agent Loyalanon for his hard work this weekend.

    Anti-Gankers = what happened? Why didn't you save the freighters? All we saw all weekend on the burn Amarr front was you shooting empty pods and getting our guys back to station for the next run faster. Surely you had a more solid plan then "whore on a bunch of killmails of ships that are dying to CONCORD anyway", right?

    1. I was in AG channel a little bit this weekend, and some guy posted a Concord KM whore of a t1 Cat where he did like 13% of the damage, and people were like "good job!" unironically. Dude even thought he'd be a CODE target because of his "victory" lol.

    3. No no they care about CCP's profit margins remember. They get out all their pie charts and spread sheets saying how bad ganking is for CCP's bottom line and that's the real reason they hate ganking. Honest

      Awww, poor Scott just wants World Of Warcraft in space. Thankfully, CCP totally thinks that's an awful idea. EVE is a "arena". Everyone vs. Everyone. Adapt or die, HTFU.

    The CODE always wins! ALWAYS!

    A glorious removal of such trash from Highsec is what makes Eve so wonderful.

  8. Used to be the lowest donor on the top list at the end of a month was 100 mil or 250 mil.
    Now it's just 25 mil.
    Guess people don't want to give isk to scammers.

    1. All you anonbears ever talk or care about is ISK. The New Order cares about winning. And we always do. We also care about you.

      Have you read the Code?
      Are you ready to accept James 315 into your heart?
      Would you like to buy a mining permit?

      You see, Anon, is that the New Order's funds go up and down.
      They go down, when we do a lot of ganks, and they go up whenever we get big donors that pledge to the New Order.

      We're kind of like PBS in that way, providing a vital public service.

  11. No mystery here... the guy is a new player and his first interaction with eve players is code.

    1. To be frank I think his first "interaction" was at the EVE Store to buy a Plex for implants and then went on to insane-fit a ship. Then he undocked and actually learned something about EVE. The only interesting question is, whether he will adapt or keep dying.

    1. I agree, code members sure do get angry at miners all the time. They need more positive places to vent their rage. Imagine all the poor keyboards they must break.
