Hero's Journey, Part 3

Previously, on MinerBumping... Agent Hero Of HiSec proved chivalry is alive in well in highsec as he sallied forth to enforce the Code in Hek. But ominous forces lurked in the background, waiting for a time to strike at the valiant Knight.


Strange as it may seem, some EVE players don't enjoy content.


There's no question that Agent Hero provided the Hek system with content, but the carebears didn't always know exactly what to make of him.


Others lacked confusion--holding strong but misguided opinions.


In the end, most miners decided that they had little choice but to accept Hero on his own terms. After all, he had the power to destroy their ships, just like any other Agent.


Thus, Hero's journey can be seen as a reflection of every other Agent's journey. He simply had his own style; the fundamentals, set forth by the Code, remained the same.


Agent Hero was encouraged by the progress he was making. He'd faced obstacles and overcome them all. But at the very moment a hero feels he's beginning to get things under control...


...a more dangerous villain must enter the story. Rayze Adoudel saw herself as Hero's arch-nemesis. She was accompanied by Jack U'up, her annoying sidekick.


Rayze's hatred of Hero was implacable. For days on end, she insulted and mocked him in local, even when he was obviously AFK. But why?


Hero ganked one of Rayze's Ventures, and the rest was history. Her origin story consisted of a dead mining frigate. That's all a carebear really needs.


Hero enjoyed popping non-compliant Ventures in Hek. To make things fair, he used frigates to PvP them: The trusty Atron was his preferred ganking ship.


One day, Rayze spotted Hero's name in Hek local. Hero would remain docked and AFK for a while yet, but the battle in local chat was immediately joined.


Later, a random interloper ganked one of Hero's Atrons. Rayze saw this as her opportunity to take down her nemesis, once and for all.


And so began the final battle of good versus evil.

To be continued...

  1. I think Hero is one of my favorite enforcwrs of the CODE. His manner of speaking and charisma are refreshing.

    1. Yup yup, that guy is having fun! Making the most of his EvE experience, and providing content for his fellow player.

      Well met, Hero!

  2. Hero really embraces the title of Knight. The contrast between his noble bearing and the miners' crude indignation is stark.

  3. How CODE acts:

    Government agencies at all levels aimed to exclude Jews from the economic sphere of Germany by preventing them from earning a living. Jews were required to register their domestic and foreign property and assets, a prelude to the gradual expropriation of their material wealth by the state. Likewise, the German authorities intended to "Aryanize" all Jewish businesses, a process involving the dismissal of Jewish workers and managers, as well as the transfer of companies and enterprises to non-Jewish Germans, who bought them at prices officially fixed well below market value. From April 1933 to April 1938, "Aryanization" effectively reduced the number of Jewish-owned businesses in Germany by approximately two-thirds.

    What code forces miners to pay for:

    During the Nazi era, German authorities reintroduced the Jewish badge as a key element in their plan to persecute and eventually to destroy the Jewish population of Europe. They used the badge not only to stigmatize and humiliate Jews but also to segregate them and to watch and control their movements.

  4. Good evening, New Eden. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition, the totality of blogs. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, where upon important events of the past, usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are, of course, those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with moderator accounts will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well, certainly, there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, ganking. They were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, James 315. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent. This night, I seek to end that silence. This night, I corrupt the MB to remind this community of what it has forgotten. A great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words; they are perspectives. So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of this Code remain unknown to you, then I would suggest that you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand beside me, inside the gates of High Sec, and together we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot.

    1. This one makes a good case for censorship. Ironic that it is only because of lack of censorship that we can see it.

    2. Censorship's a thorny issue. The Saviour took the decision right at the start of the blog that he wouldn't moderate the comments section. He wanted candid exchanges.

      He got those. He also got irrelevant tripe and anonymous snipes and gripes.

      Moderation of comments is a time-consuming business anyway; he'd have to read all that rubbish before deciding whether to let it through. I think he probably has enough to do already.

      Maybe it should be like Twitter, with a cap on the number of characters. Alas, that would do for me too ;)

      See? I'm rambling already...

  6. As the foremost expert on Nazis, I can honestly say that the real space Nazis in Eve are non-compliant miners.

    1. Good job Jerry, acting like a true Nazi.

    2. Minerbumping.com propaganda is just like:

      Films released to the public concentrated on certain issues: the greed of Jews; the greatness of Hitler; the way of life for a true Nazi especially the young and as World war 2 approached, how badly Germans who lived in countries in Eastern Europe were treated.

    3. So who have the miners persecuted and oppressed?

    4. Foremost expert on Nazis got his degree by mailing in to a get rich quick scheme run by a miner which is why he is so butt hurt. GTFU Jerry

    5. All these vapid nazi comments... so weird. Nazi-Anon is so wrong, it's the non-compliant miners and haulers that are the real nazis in Eve. Period.

    6. And who do they oppress? Nazi bear.

    7. Themselves.

      If you have read the Code you would know this.

    8. A very Nazi response of you. Good job Jerry.

    9. Can I interest you in a reading of exilliteratur.

    10. It thinks only how the party wants it to think, it speaks only the way the party wants it to speak, it acts only the way the party wants it to act. The person is lost and only a machine exists, this is how the Nazi trains its soldiers, creating an unfeeling thing that is no longer human.

  7. Its about time the comments section started getting something going again, I was beginning to think it died, and without me having done the murder.
