Damien was well aware that bad miners are attracted to the many temptations of 0.5 security systems. In Balle, Damien met Episque Athonille. Our hero acted quickly to remove the miner's disgusting Retriever from highsec.
Episque Athonille > funny cunts heyDamien's first impression of Episque proved to be spot on. When the miner returned to his keyboard, he was in a grumpy mood. Maybe he was surprised that his warp core stabilizer hadn't kept him safe.
Damien Oxytocin > This is not a way to talk to a Knight of the New Order
Damien Oxytocin > Especially when you are in the wrong, mining without a permit.
Episque Athonille > you mine any where you want fucktard
Damien Oxytocin > You do, but if you do without a permit, this ends up happening Kill: Episque Athonille (Retriever)
Episque Athonille > drop back here cock smith and we will seeNot long after Episque lost his Retriever, he began making threats and inviting Damien to return to the asteroid belt. Damien's super-secret scout alt scanned Episque's new ship, a Megathron:
Damien Oxytocin > I currently have a criminal timer and cannot enter any vessel,
Episque Athonille > oh wow you commited a crime dumb
Episque Athonille > I am waiting drop in with your cata and see it go pop fucker
Damien was appalled to see such fittings forced upon a battleship. He didn't hide his displeasure with Episque's design.
Damien Oxytocin > Also, I suggest you don't shield AND armor tank your MegathronEpisque had a thin skin; he didn't accept the criticism of his Megathron very graciously.
Episque Athonille > FUCK OFF WANKER
Episque Athonille > what you did was ratting plain and simples bud
Damien Oxytocin > What kind of person fits a ship that way?
Damien Oxytocin > It is truely a sight to see.
Episque Athonille > fuck off turd
Episque Athonille > you just earned a KOS order
Episque Athonille > hah lol you are truly an utter wanker you committed a crime that is why the police blew your ships upIt was evident that Episque was unfamiliar with the New Order and its Code. At this point in highsec's transformation process, only a bot-aspirant could be so ignorant.
Damien Oxytocin > Yes, this was on purpose, if you did not already understand how we opperate.
Episque Athonille > for what 1 mil isk in ore dumb ass shit if you ask me
Damien Oxytocin > I suicide my ship in order to blow your ship.
Episque Athonille > you suicided 2 ships for one miner HAHAHAHAHAHHA
Damien Oxytocin > And I would do it again
Episque Athonille > oh please do I have better ships to take you on than my mega buddyThough he tried to defend his Megathron fit, Episque hedged by saying he had better ships--though naturally he wouldn't elaborate on the subject.
Damien Oxytocin > I hope their fit isn't as horrendous as that mega,
Damien Oxytocin > Warp core stabs, shield buffer and armor repairer, a thing of a beauty
Episque Athonille > that mega is fitted so you don't warp or move fool
Episque Athonille > one shot kill for your catalysts I am happy with that
Damien Oxytocin > Unfortunately, it won't
Damien Oxytocin > the catalysts will simply kill your lowly, unlawful, mining shipsUnsurprisingly, Episque was not a big reader. Our Agent tried to accommodate him. One way or another, the Code must be absorbed.
Damien Oxytocin > I hope that you read the link I gave you, and that you follow the law, it would be unfortunate for you to lose more vessel and pride over this.
Episque Athonille > I don't read shit, you cannot claim this territory I am not required to buy a permit and fuck off
Damien Oxytocin > I may try to get you an audio version of that law book if you'd like, so that you don't strain your eyes on reading too many words.
Episque Athonille > look bud I will keep mining with free ventures if you like and i will not be losing anything but you willDamien let Episque go for the moment, but he kept a scout alt in the system to log local chat.
Damien Oxytocin > Very well, we will meet again then.
Episque Athonille > is rushdie one of yours
Episque Athonille > cause you could have just left me be but no you had to go there I will torp and destroy you on site
Episque Athonille > if you have any mining barges in sector I will not be bothering you I am hunting the 2 wankers who attacked without warning then say it is their right to do so
Episque Athonille > you generally open a dialogue first before attackingOnce Damien exited the system, other miners began to speak up and give Episque advice.
Episque Athonille > especially if you don't say you are pirates
Sinister Bear > Probably affliated with Code.
Sinister Bear > It'd be a good idea to learn up on it.
Episque Athonille > you don't drop in on people when the is no notification except cargo containers which I don't touch I am guessing that is what they are using for billboars
Rushdie Vance > *facepalm*The system's local chat soon resembled the Anti-Ganking channel. The atmosphere became toxic, marked by paranoia and infighting.
Episque Athonille > give me more targets I want the whole bloody lot of them
Episque Athonille > where are you rushdie
Rushdie Vance > Trying to avoid pirates and a crazy son of a bitch who thinks I'm a pirate.
Episque Athonille > well you are aren't you pirates commit criminal acts dont they
Rushdie Vance > Yes, with my 0.1 status.
Rushdie Vance > Goddamn.
Episque Athonille > like attacking non combatants like miners for there shit
Charlotte LaRoche > The pirates are gone, you can see it in local, they have a flashing red skull.One local resident outed herself as an Anti-Ganker. By her own admission, she'd failed to stop any ganks.
Episque Athonille > charlotte i seen you out there in the feild after what had happened yes
Charlotte LaRoche > Yes, I tried to kill them
Charlotte LaRoche > but they died too fast, losers
Rushdie Vance > They got me a few days ago.
Episque Athonille > I should have podded the pair of youThe miner mourned the loss of his Retriever and its cargo. Yet he showed no remorse for his violations against the Code.
Charlotte LaRoche > They're gone dude
Charlotte LaRoche > They're not here anymore
Rushdie Vance > Let it goooo, let it go...
Episque Athonille > man all i wanted was a few isk one load I would have been happy
Charlotte LaRoche > You're free to mine again now that they're goneInterestingly, the aspiring Anti-Ganker conceded that miners aren't killed if they obey the Code. Episque responded by making up a lame excuse for not buying a permit. He would've had plenty of cash if he'd sold that outrageous Megathron!
Episque Athonille > yeah he was with code
Rushdie Vance > Dumb question, when you pay, they blow you up anyway, right?
Charlotte LaRoche > No, not if you follow the law
Episque Athonille > well I didn't have 10 000 000 isk handy right then
As for Damien, his journey continued. He would not rest until he found a miner he could liberate from bot-aspirancy.
To be continued...
