An Act of Love

Today's post is going to be a little unusual, but there's nothing wrong with that, is there?


Pouring out 315 million isk for our fallen brothers is a classy move. It didn't bring us to the next billion isk mark in terms of New Order stock, but still. Respect.

On a completely unrelated note, I received a message from Lahnius about his latest video. Here's how he described his vision (lightly edited for readability):

"This video I'm going to link strays from hardcore ganking. It's a story about a ganker and his target. Yet they are in love and he can't hurt her, so they play cat and mouse in space as they hide their love. It's a cross-over video with some Second Life video for the band shots and all EVE for the cat-and-mouse "sharing space" sequences. This video means a lot to me and my wife and has had some pretty cool EVEmail replies about it.

"I hope you like it. Remember, it's about love and hiding that love from CODE. I understand that can be a compromise of interests but it's still beautiful, IMHO."



Oh boy, this is going to be a controversial one. The video is unorthodox, but honest. Emotions can inspire people to do great things, but they can also lead us astray. It's a good thing we have the Code. A fuller, deeper understanding of the Code can resolve--quite cleanly, in fact--seemingly difficult questions like, "What if my spouse doesn't own a mining permit?"

The thing to realize here is that ganking someone needn't be seen as hurtful. In fact, a gank can be an act of love--and usually is. If someone you love is mining in highsec, blow up their ship.

This next video is also unusual, but for different reasons:


Yes, it's a trailer. Agents Kalorned and TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet have been up to their elbows dealing with a large group of miners and mission runners. What will the outcome be? We must wait and see.

  1. I'm sure Lahnius' film will go on to become a cult classic! It is also a useful resource for me to show to new players, with a view to helping them better understand the Code.

    1. Nice play on words, a cult classic for a cult following.

  2. Jim, your alliance should get ship skins in your image, I would would pay for that rather that buy the silly permit.

  3. I was an early Lahnius enthusiast; he and his wife have a real talent for spotting unusual and original media opportunities.

    It all helps to establish a broad range of New Order related content, in a variety of formats. Something our detractors have signally failed (that word, again) to harness in the promotion of their own points of view.

    Good also to see K and T collaborating at the sharp end of our enforcement activities. Although only a trailer, this work promises to bear juicy fruit in the future. Can't wait.

    I believe there's even more talent still to be uncovered among our members and supporters. Artists, writers, musicians, film-makers, audio enthusiasts - whatever their hobby/profession can all contribute to the runaway success of the Order, and can help in building a body of work the like of which, in terms of variety, focus, and sheer entertainment value, would be unequalled in all of New Eden.

    People shouldn't be afraid to fire up their favourite piece of software and get making stuff; you never know what you can do until you really try.

    Let's face it, 'I'll give it a go' is more effective in motivating ourselves than almost anything else. So, give it a go!

    4. Buy her a permit out of your love for her. And out of the love of knowing she will be following the code.

    5. The code provides the answer.

  8. I didn't realize that Ventures and Catalysts can coexist. It seems a bit unnatural that they didn't blow up.

  9. Got love for Blueberries? Well, they are extremely nutritious and is one of the world's most potential sources of the antioxidants. While the Blueberry extract is sold in the form of a supplement that is natural in nature.

    1. natural in nature is a bit redundant, isn't it?

      strawberries are the fruit of choice on www.minerbumping.com, just search "mine teck".

  10. A company engages in numerous pursuits like planning of resource, Management Software scheduling of pursuits, coordinating and other managerial pursuits. Giving yourself the most recent and best tools, like a personnel scheduling program package, to take total benefit of all your assets, including personnel, is a significant component in being the best that you can be. The management benefits of a good scheduling system are simple to see

  11. Nerfed blog = Code fail

    Every day the blog is nerfed is a failure of the code to show strength against hurtful words.

    Every day is a victory for the trolls.

    Every day is proof that your agents are to fragile for their own game.

    Every day you hide these post is proof of your fear.

    1. And every day you show up to cry about it, like a bitch.

      Does it hurt to be that stupid, every day?

      Delete
    2. If you consider that crying you truly are stupid.

  12. So the moral of the video is if you love someone..... You shoot them.

    Sounds like the new order and how they always tell people to kill themselves and kill loved ones so they don't become AG. Oh and like that one anon who says shitter a lot, he always tells people not to breed because they are genetic defects.

    Yup just like the code and its agents, if you love someone you kill them.
