...Enter the New Order of Highsec. Agents Liek DarZ and Plasma Death discovered an unlicensed miner and swiftly began to teach her about the game.
Liek DarZ > Did you not know that mining in hisec without a New Order permit is not allowed under the rule of James 315, the savior of hisec? If you want to mine here, you need to have a valid license and follow the rules of the CODE.Fewer miners are claiming ignorance of the Code these days. Though she'd only played for a few months, Qila was ready to become a space lawyer.
Qila McClusky > Oh. I asked in local how much is permit but nobody answer
Qila McClusky > i giess you broke Code now attackin miner willing to pay for permit
Liek DarZ > Well, maybe you should have convoed? I had just passed probably and was not in there any longer.Once upon a time, all the miners denied the existence of the Code. They tried to downplay its importance. Now miners try to use the Code to argue with their gankers.
Liek DarZ > I even state all the time "convo me for details"?
Qila McClusky > you little maggot, you thinkl you follow Code , but you are just common criminal then. Let anger of James 315 be upon you
Liek DarZ > No, James 315 has embraced my work pretty oftenQila declared herself immune from ganks, thanks to her status as a Code-compliant miner. However, she lacked a permit. Indeed, there was no evidence that she followed the Code, and plenty to the contrary. Even her pod failed to escape following the destruction of her Retriever--a clear sign of being AFK.
Liek DarZ > but you arefree to send him your complaints
Qila McClusky > ganking followers of Code shouldn't be endorsed
Liek DarZ > You are not a follower of the CODE.
Liek DarZ > You do not display a permit, for starters.
Qila McClusky > Therfore James himself is rotten and his organisytaionis invalidOur Agents are expert at spotting Goofuses. Allowed to speak his mind, the Goofus will reveal himself. Gallants are always respectful and deferential to our Agents.
Qila McClusky > as you don't folllow your own rules
Liek DarZ > You did not have a permit and fail-fitted. Clearly breaking the law in many ways
Qila McClusky > warp core stab
Qila McClusky > i will fit 2 next time :)
Qila McClusky > you spill lies, peasant
Liek DarZ > Bad tank, a single stab does not help at all.The self-righteous miner knew she was losing the argument. She expressed doubts about the Saviour of Highsec. Talk about a red flag!
Liek DarZ > Careless as well - lost pod in hisec?
Liek DarZ > No permit also.
Liek DarZ > Really, send a complaint to James 315 if you claim you have followed his law
Qila McClusky > I don't know if he is worth and he endorse people that not follow Code
Qila McClusky > Shame on you , my sonThe miner considered herself superior to the Agent who had bested her in PvP. What a contrast with the Gallants, who are grateful for every second that an Agent chooses to speak with them.
Qila McClusky > Sjame Shame Shame
Liek DarZ > Want to repent your sins and become CODE compliant?
Qila McClusky > Oh , you maggot . I would, but now my EYES ARE OPEN AND I CAN SEE THAT CODE IS NOT PURE ANYMORE.
Liek DarZ > u-huh. Sure, go ahead, and die again to our law enforcement if you prefer it that way.
Qila McClusky > Full of sinners and common criminals
Qila McClusky > Just because i have trust in James, please puit me in contact with one of your broothers so i can purchase permit, as you are not worthy of my attention.
Liek DarZ > I am sorry, none of my brothers will agree to hand you a valid permit if he knows you were not treating me with the proper respect (which I still gave to you, but meh, we are used to that from criminals).Qila began to soften a bit. Liek DarZ recognized the opening and sent her links to MinerBumping. Perhaps Qila was also receptive to a little constructive criticism about her Retriever fit?
Qila McClusky > i don't treat breachers of CODE with respect, peasant
Liek DarZ > See, there is your lack of respect again.Calm down, miner!
Qila McClusky > now much is permit, how other will know(what warranty i have ) ?
Qila McClusky > what are the rules ?
Qila McClusky > no AFk ?
Liek DarZ > why, again, a single core stab to start with?Since gankers use short-range weapons anyway, they tend to use 2-point warp scramblers. Our Agent gently explained this concept to the miner.
Liek DarZ > I could see two, but why one?
Qila McClusky > i mean, that fit is the best ratio making ISk/ loosing ships
Liek DarZ > a single stab does not stop any gank.
Qila McClusky > it stoped few
Liek DarZ > Did it stop me? :-P
Qila McClusky > no, you are pro
Qila McClusky > Procurer is safer but mining yield is so much smallerLiek tried to encourage Qila to fly a more heavily-tanked mining ship instead, such as a Procurer. Though resistant, once Qila acknowledged Liek's EVE expertise, everything went swimmingly.
Liek DarZ > AFK yield you mean ;-)
Qila McClusky > not AFK
Qila McClusky > its cheper to loose retriver once a week then mine in Procurer
Qila McClusky > so in short , i need permit and then i can mine safely from CODE ?
Liek DarZ > as long as you also follow the law, yes
...Or so it seemed. Qila never bothered to buy a mining permit. And the very next day, Liek had a chance encounter with her in an ice anomaly. Liek was stunned to see that Qila had learned nothing at all. In fact, she had used his advice as an excuse to swap out her warp core stab in favor of more yield!
Liek DarZ then attempted to convo Qila to find out why she had failed to absorb the previous day's lesson. But Qila McClusky offered no response; she was AFK. When Qila finally returned to her keyboard, she wasn't interested in private convos. Instead, she announced her feelings to everyone in Osmon local. Surrounded by an audience of her peers, would Qila finally show signs of being a better-educated miner?
