Hero's Journey, Part 1

In a sandbox game, there's no such thing as heroes or villains, good or bad. Everyone does whatever he or she wants. Right?


...Wrong. We know from the Code that we're the good guys and the Code violators are the bad guys.


Agent Hero Of HiSec made the decision to become one of EVE's heroes. He immediately began performing acts of heroism, such as killing highsec miners.


But Hero is no ordinary Agent--as seen by his rendering of Agent Bing Bangboom's famous rallying cry, "Highsec is worth fighting for."


Hero's chivalrous conduct and vocabulary has precedent, going all the way back to the New Order's earliest days.


One might hope that Hero's twist on the English language might tend to soften his message and have a calming effect on the miners. No such luck.


In fact, Hero's mannerisms sometimes produce disgust among the carebears he kills--though it's difficult to separate out their anger at being ganked.


While miners may occasionally find a conversation with Hero to be frustrating, he always manages to get his point across.


And Hero's zeal for the cause allows him to be flexible:


After all, no language barrier cannot be overcome by the Code.


In any case, losing ships tends to give miners focus, even if they're normally distracted by a hundred other things.


And so we can easily answer the question of whether miners take Agent Hero seriously:


Deadly seriously. An Agent's power is enough to make any miner tremble.


But in the story of every hero, there is a nemesis.

To be continued...

  1. For James sake already. Please give back loyalanon his stuff. He has been posting here for months now lamenting over his loss and is not giving up. I am frankly tired of seeing his pain on these forums. When the last comments section surpassed 100 replies I knew that this has become an issue.

    Please give back loyalanon his stuff already, so we can stop seeing his pain and anger and ramblings of him just saying “salt” over and over and hoping it has an effect. It’s hard to get excited about this anymore.

    It is becoming sad to see him refreshing this site spamming F5 just in hopes he can see a new comment and comment back on it as quickly as he can.

    TL:DR Please give loyalanon his stuff back. For all of our sakes. Otherwise he will just keep lurking around on this website posting “salt” over and over.

    Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

    4. So, just to be clear, you're tweeps denying that this evemail was ever written by you and your little fun fun crew? https://puu.sh/vgddw/9befaa69f7.png

      Is that REALLY the position you want to take? Why deny that this evemail is real? Those are your REAL feelings about CODE in there, aren't they? It's amazing what you will think is a good idea in a small, absurd echo chamber of salty rage.

      You know, you'll just argue with anything like this saying it isn't true..... but everyone knows it is XDDDD

    5. Sounds like Jerry and loyalanon are angry. Guys we were trying to avoid this remember? Just give back the stuff and let these guys be. Give back the isk and ships with interest and a nice apology letter. That should stop this crying.

    3. Whats your etiquette lesson say about having a hidden channel where you talk about how much you hate "your subordinates" in AGBees and how much you hate Highsec Heroes "autistic schtick". I mean, you can deny stuff like this all day...... as liars, but I was there and watched those conversations unfold.

      You hate Highsec Hero and only begrudgingly admitted weeks after meeting him that he had "grown on you slightly".

      Such outstanding etiquette! I should certainly take etiquette lessons from someone like you XD

      Has my ticket number been generated yet? I saw a ticket number of "315" from a screenshot and was a little taken aback.

    4. Dear John,
      I looked up your ticket number in the database and it was #162, we had called it about a year or two ago it seems. It's understandable that you may have forgotten your ticket number due to a progression of years on your part but fear not! Just say the word and we can generate a new ticket in the all new IA database.

      Jerry is back in fact! He's been a bit tired lately but none the less, he is back.

    5. Dear Tweeps,

      Could you work with Kalorned? His instincts are good but his delivery needs some polishing. Also, I need a new number.

  18. The problem is that you and your code friends are now putting Islamic text in their bios. Now we are pretending to be digital Islamic Terrorists. That's not fun or smart - and to give real terrorists a nod by emulating them shows a complete lack of judgement. If I show you the pictures of what those dirtbags have done to civilian friends of mine you would realize how foolish you all are.
