Clash of civilizations! Lillith Darkmoore lost a mining ship and an implant-filled pod worth a total of 4 billion isk. Agent 412nv Yaken was called in to investigate the possibility of a reimbursement. A dangerous situation was brewing. Lillith claimed to know powerful people in nullsec: The "null big boys"!
Lillith Darkmoore > yea I believe that your guys owe me a new set of implants and a shipThough miners spend all day sitting in one place, they tend to get frantic once their routines are disturbed. Thus, an Agent's first job is usually to slow things down. 412nv wanted to take a methodical approach to the investigation.
412nv Yaken > ok, can you walk me through what happened?
412nv Yaken > and link the kills
Lillith Darkmoore > your boy flew in didnt say this is his space and i was incroachingLillith wasn't interested in digging up killmail links. She wanted to cut right through the New Order bureaucracy and get her money back.
Lillith Darkmoore > oppened fire
Lillith Darkmoore > still didnt say a word poded me
Lillith Darkmoore > and then said afterwords you know this is my space
Lillith Darkmoore > i find this really simple
412nv Yaken > ok, however all of highsec is soverign space of james 315. You are aware of this yes?The highsec ice miner wasted no time in flaunting her credentials as an experienced EVE player who had nothing to do with highsec.
Lillith Darkmoore > yea i also know that some people still follow null sec code in empire
Lillith Darkmoore > im from null sec
Lillith Darkmoore > and we follow a code
412nv Yaken > ok, so then you can understand you dont announce yourself first412nv Yaken must have smirked when Lillith referenced the nullsec "code". But he kept his cards close to his chest.
412nv Yaken > unless you are from provi, which isnt really null
Lillith Darkmoore > no i understand that we point bubble and then talk
Lillith Darkmoore > and if the bastards still dont coorporate
Lillith Darkmoore > then its hunt them till they cant take it any jore
412nv Yaken > well in james 315 space, we have to kill first ask questions laterThe two debated the proper procedure for killing someone in highsec. Miner and Agent both agreed that things need to be done a certain way. Perhaps they could find common ground.
412nv Yaken > as game mechanics dont allow us to bubble
Lillith Darkmoore > yea so it would be safe to say ransome first then shoot
Lillith Darkmoore > and that means with a convo
Lillith Darkmoore > not with a blaster
412nv Yaken > so you can dock up? no thats not how it works my friendUnfortunately, the two could not resolve their disagreement. Lillith believed that a highsec player must be contacted prior to any attack. Even if that's true, one could say that this blog is the contact. What is MinerBumping, if not an ongoing, multi-year conversation with highsec?
Lillith Darkmoore > no and even if i did dock up
Lillith Darkmoore > you are playing the role of a pirate
Lillith Darkmoore > that means you would hunt me till the end of the earth
Lillith Darkmoore > so there is no dock that is safe untill i would pay up
Lillith Darkmoore > i see this 2 ways of playing outIt was time to get down to business. Lillith's Option #1 was that she be reimbursed the 4 billion isk that she'd lost. In exchange, she would pay 10 million isk for a mining permit. Everyone would walk away friends.
412nv Yaken > ok im all ears
Lillith Darkmoore > you can reimburse me
Lillith Darkmoore > and we call it a day
Lillith Darkmoore > i will pay your ice field cost
Lillith Darkmoore > and we call it a day
Lillith Darkmoore > no hard feelings all the way around
Lillith Darkmoore > or i have already talked to the guys in null and we dont mind flipping this pirate game on you eitherOption #2 was for Lillith to talk to the null big boys. That would represent an existential threat to the New Order. As we all know, nullsec fleets love to travel 50 jumps to highsec and shut down suicide gankers using all of their elite nullsec skills.
Lillith Darkmoore > i dont think that either one of us want this to happen
Lillith Darkmoore > so lets go with option 1
Lillith Darkmoore > its easer for all of us
412nv Yaken > if you are in null? May i ask why you were illegally mining in highsec in a salve set? in a shield ship?Our Agent hadn't yet decided whether he wanted to go with Option #1 or #2. First he needed to know how important a figure in nullsec this highsec ice miner was. Lillith denied being a highsec miner; she was only holding the ice for a friend. It's a good thing her "incursion toon" trained Exhumers.
Lillith Darkmoore > this was an incursion toon. And i was asked to help gather resources for caldari ships that we have
Lillith Darkmoore > trust me it was not my first choice either
412nv Yaken > ohh right. Are you part of the imperium?
Lillith Darkmoore > FUCK NO!!!!
412nv Yaken > lol, i take it you hate goons?There were some holes in Lillith's story. Why didn't she know about me? Or for that matter, CODE., one of the most famous alliances in EVE history? Was she a bot-aspirant?
Lillith Darkmoore > you gathered that i dont care for them?
Lillith Darkmoore > :P
412nv Yaken > ok fair enough. Have you heard of code. or james 315 before?
Lillith Darkmoore > No
412nv Yaken > hmmmm
Lillith Darkmoore > Had i know i was incroaching on spaceEnough of the Bushido nonsense. It was time for 412nv Yaken to tell Lillith how highsec really worked.
Lillith Darkmoore > i would have pmed you
Lillith Darkmoore > and worked this out
412nv Yaken > its not so much the incroaching you are more then welcome to do whatever you like in whatever highsec system you like.... Except 1 thing
Lillith Darkmoore > and that thing is?
412nv Yaken > Break THE NEW HALAIMA CODE OF CONDUCT
