Dear reader, how would you like a bucket? "Okay," you say, "That's pretty decent." Now then, how would you like a bucket of joy? Yeah, now we're talkin'.
First item on the agenda: New Order stock. Everyone loves it, everyone wants to purchase it for all sorts of reasons. In fact, that's one of the best things about New Order stock--its versatility.
shootyou longtyme's purchase of New Order stock on behalf of his alliance might trigger some people out there with unexplained grudges against the Tactical Narcotics Team.
The appropriately named Toombs lost a 1.2 billion isk Stratios and a 750 million isk pod to our Agents. Then a bunch of his stuff was sold to buy New Order stock. You might say Toombs helped fund the ganking of the next carebear. It's the circle of life--or death, in this case.
Next up, we have the latest installment of highsec's equivalent of the James Bond franchise: The Code Is Forever series.
It's really impressive that each sequel is even better than the one before it. After thirty-two editions, that's no mean feat.
Even more joy!
At the risk of spoiling the outcome of the negotiations, I'll just say that the carebear in question was a really poor negotiator.
After losing his Mackinaw...
...he also lost his billion isk Orca. Later, I received an EVEmail from an interested party:
This all sounds very complicated, but as always, the Code allows us to cut right to the heart of the matter. The ships in question were insufficiently tanked and neither pilot had a mining permit. No permit, no ship. Ness 64 bought a couple permits the day after the ganks, which is excellent--but too late to save those dead ships.
Remember everyone, the time to purchase a mining permit is now, not after your Orca gets tackled.
