Previously, on MinerBumping... Agent Hero Of HiSec was in for the fight of his life when he found himself face to face with his arch-nemesis, Rayze Adoudel.
Rayze promised to wage a long-term campaign of vengeance against Hero. Our Agent's life in EVE would never be the same.
Later, Hero returned to Hek, only to find Rayze's sidekick Jack U'up causing a scene. Hero punished the miner to remind him of the consequences of such misbehavior.
Jack U'up remained defiant. He'd obviously been emboldened by Rayze. But where was she?
Hero suspected something was up. Jack usually didn't stray far from Rayze. Was this a distraction? On a hunch, Hero jumped next door to Nakugard.
Hero's instincts were right as usual. He quickly located Rayze in Nakugard, reshipped into a Catalyst, and ganked her Covetor.
Rayze raged. Another of her followers, William Malabo, chimed in. He, too, had been ganked by Hero.
Hero recognized Vadden Yvormes, as well. Rayze seemed to be rallying everyone who held a grudge against our Agent.
Agent Hero had been busy, and his work was paying off. Nearly everyone who spoke against him got ganked sooner or later. Hero was living up to his name.
Rayze tried to stir up opposition to the Code in local. Something interesting happened in the middle of her rant: The word "tis". Was Hero's style rubbing off, even on his arch-nemesis?
The rebel miner's campaign was derailed when she discovered, to her great displeasure, that Nakugard miners were buying permits and complying with the Code.
Even some critics of the New Order had decided it was safer to buy a permit. Rayze couldn't believe it.
Bot-aspirants are difficult to teach. They'd usually prefer to lose expensive ships rather than pay 10 million isk for safety. In the long run, however, the Code always prevails.
After all, the Code promises extraordinary benefits to everyone in EVE. Resistance to the Code only brings misery.
With no other tactics in her arsenal, Rayze appealed directly to the Saviour of Highsec. If she was hoping that Hero would get fired or something, she hoped in vain. Hero taught highsec a valuable lesson about substance over style. It doesn't matter whether an Agent speaks ye olde English or not. As long as a Catalyst kills miners, it's a good Cat.
