William Bell > well I hope I can trust you because starting over......idk if I could take that right now.Kintaro offered to help William move his belongings into a safer area of highsec. William was a little nervous about the idea of handing over all of his assets to a complete stranger, but what choice did he have?
William Bell > to much going on with life
Kintaro Kitsuji > I feel you.
William Bell > I'm 34 and a truck driver who will be going back on the road the following monday
William Bell > checking charon stats.... I hope to have one someday:)William dreamed of one day owning a freighter, presumably so that he could send it AFK into Uedama. For now, though, he didn't need a freighter. Kintaro was willing to transport William's stuff for him.
Kintaro Kitsuji > They're easy to get into. And you should keep your ISK.
Kintaro Kitsuji > Let's get your stuff here and then put up orders for Amarr.
William Bell > ok I'll start gathering things together
Kintaro Kitsuji > Where abouts will it be? I'll start that way.Much had changed in the 9 years since William claimed he'd last played. While William organized his property in preparation for handing it over to Kintaro, our Agent helpfully answered all of William's questions.
William Bell > most in Autaris
Kintaro Kitsuji > Nice, only 17 jumps and I can keep it in highsec.
William Bell > I need to buy a new clone how do I do that
Kintaro Kitsuji > Clones don't get upgraded anymore.
William Bell > I don't want to die and loose my skill points
Kintaro Kitsuji > No SP loss on being podded.Strangely--perhaps alarmingly--William asked no questions about how to get a mining permit or obey the Code. It was a major blind spot for the miner.
William Bell > that's a plus
Kintaro Kitsuji > ISK is a bit easier to get now, too.
William Bell > i see the astroids are bigger
William Bell > well looks like I'll have to sell my ore, you can't take it in one trip
Kintaro Kitsuji > I can compress it.
William Bell > how much m3 can you carry again?Agent Kintaro was more than willing to help a miner in need. It's in the Agent job description, after all.
William Bell > I'm at 1,535,036.7 with ore
Kintaro Kitsuji > No worries, I can run twice.
William Bell > ok thx a ton man, I really really appriciate this
Kintaro Kitsuji > No worries. I know the pain of being ganked hard.
Kintaro Kitsuji > So, I hate ganking.Kintaro tested William to see where he stood on the subject of ganking. William was against it. Kintaro took note of this.
William Bell > NO JOKE!
Kintaro Kitsuji > Compressed Solid Pyroxeres
Kintaro Kitsuji > Compressed ore.
William Bell > double/triple checking everything
Kintaro Kitsuji > Awesome.
William Bell > setting up contract nowWilliam did have a few points in his favor. First, he had the presence of mind to check the killboards of those who'd ganked him. Second, he acknowledged that the gankers had "PvP'ed" him. He didn't have the "ganking isn't PvP" mindset that so many rebel carebears do. Maybe William really had been absent for the last 9 years, and had avoided some of the rebels' poison.
Kintaro Kitsuji > kk
Kintaro Kitsuji > I've got a couple contracts going that way anyhow, so it works out.
William Bell > they guys that pvpd me posts their kills , the first one they have is a charon.....didn't make me feel so good because I really really want one
William Bell > LOL the value of this first haul just about made me fall overWilliam separated all of his worldly possessions into two separate courier contracts. Since William enjoyed mining and hauling, I suppose he'd taken the time to at least learn about the contract feature.
Kintaro Kitsuji > Heh, I won't even look.
Kintaro Kitsuji > It'll go into plastic wrap.
Kintaro Kitsuji > don't worry about a per jump charge
Kintaro Kitsuji > just make it 0
William Bell > I just hope you're as nice as you seem:)
Kintaro Kitsuji > Yeah, lol
William Bell > lol this one too for est. value lol AAHHH!!!!!! lolNow it was time for William to entrust everything he owned to Kintaro, who had patiently waited for the opportunity to prove himself.
Kintaro Kitsuji > hahahaha
William Bell > well I hope nothing happens because it took a long time to get that stuff.
Kintaro Kitsuji > It'll be fine.
Kintaro accepted both contracts and prepared to transport William's possessions to their intended destination. Just as Kintaro was about to do this, he noticed something very troubling: William Bell didn't have a mining permit. Was he a bot-aspirant? Kintaro certainly didn't want to be accused of facilitating another player's bot-aspirancy. Now our Agent had no choice but to open the courier packages and see if there was any additional incriminating evidence.
Kintaro's heart sank when he discovered what was inside the packages. In addition to a large supply of illegally-sourced ore, William had a collection of mining crystal blueprints and other contraband. Kintaro decided to confiscate everything. In all, 600 million isk of property was taken from William (who was old enough to think of that as a lot of money).
Following this action, William cut off all communication with Kintaro. This is not uncommon, as many carebears are so greedy that they treat their friendships in a very transactional manner. Nevertheless, Kintaro was satisfied that justice had been done. You might say this victory for the Code was nearly ten years in the making. The CODE always wins--always--no matter how long it takes.
