The Secret Message, Part 1


Another lazy day in a small, unassuming highsec mining corporation.


Meet Original Lucky Maroon. He's one of the thousands of alpha players who were drawn to the idea of a free-to-play EVE. Though EVE's marketing highlights the game's massive nullsec fleet battles, Original Lucky Maroon ended up in a highsec PvE corp.


It could've been worse, though. Original's corpmate, RD Mackstorm, was a permit-carrying miner. Ever since Original joined the corp, RD had taken the young miner under his wing.


EVE is also marketed as a cruel game of deception and betrayal. Yet there seemed to be no hint of any distrust between the two corp members.


After a routine trade run, RD returned to the Osmon ice anomaly where Original was parked. At Original's request, RD brought an Orca. When he arrived, however, RD was perplexed by what he saw.


There was already another corp member's Orca sitting in the ice anomaly next to Original. That Orca belonged to starbounddudu starbound, who appeared to be AFK. More troubling, though, was the fact that Original seemed to be attacking the Orca with his Vexor's drones.


RD knew that Original was an innocent newbie, but this was ridiculous.


Original's Thorax had removed most of the Orca's shields. And now he had RD's Orca tackled, too.


RD answered the confused newbro's questions, but he was losing patience. And their mutual corpmate's Orca was losing hitpoints at an alarming rate.


The situation went from bad to worse: With his drones still firing away at the Orca, Original went AFK. This presented an unthinkable scenario: What if the drones destroyed the Orca before Original returned to his keyboard? That would be quite a lesson in the perils of going AFK in New Order territory.


Crisis averted? Original returned to find that the Orca was still alive--barely. Now he could deactivate his attack drones. If he chose to do so.


However...! A shocking twist was in store for our friends in the highsec mining corp: Original Lucky Maroon was not the harmless alpha player that he seemed. He was, in fact, secretly the alt of Agent Nitetime Video. And the truth had been there all along, in an encrypted message contained in the alt's name.

  1. This I like. Nitetime, it's good to see you up there as well as down here in the comments.

    I'm looking forward immensely to the unfolding of this tale. I think successful infiltrations and their consequences are some of my favourite things to read on here.

    3. I see asking questions is looked down upon in this social circle, but the question remains unanswered.

      What is AUTZ?

    4. Some would have you believe its the Autistic zone. But we know it to be Australian/ NZ timezone.

      I like autistic zone as people killed in this timezone tend to meltdown in spectacular fashion when ganked.

      Delete
    5. So you are in the Australian/ NZ time zone and others whom you have great displeasure in knowing are also in this time zone.

      Do autistic people play video games?

      If so its quite a good thing for them to do so due to their mental disability. Would you not consider it an accomplishment for the disabled to overcome obstacles so that they can enjoy things like average human beings without disabilities?

      What is "ganked"?

      What is shardanism?

      Is shardanism related to the child killer shardani?

    4. Yup, little johnnie is almost there. My bet: 2nd quarter of 2018 is when he finally goes all kalynn. April-May-June with a 3 day over/under spread.

      Whoz in? Pick 3 month block and maybe double your ISK?

      XD

      Delete
    5. Again who is johnnie?

      Kalynn is the shardani correct, why would you continue to use that person unless that person was of great importance to you.

      I do not play lottery scams, have fun though.

    1. Nevah!

      ag twats have never had an original thought, even that latest shitter trying to masquerade as Wolf half-assed it because he knew it had already been done to ag, and better.

      Shitters, the lot of 'em. Not a single redeeming deed in their entire run. I would be ashamed to let anyone know if I were ag.

      Fuk it, nothing bad enough can happen to them.

    2. Such language no wonder people dislike you.

      Still not understanding the connection of hating miners with remembering a child killer, of course I expect no more an answer this time as last time.

      Not sure why you felt the need to berate someone who is simply asking questions.

      Is that the codes SOP?

    3. Shardani is an extreme example of what happens when a control freak feels powerless. He tried to impede the natural order of New Eden and ended up selecting himself out. Never forget Shardani.

    4. So says the permabanned. Keep on pretending your superior in a game where both the GM's and the community said GTFO, wolfie boy. GET A LIFE!

    5. So you remember someone for killing their child because of the new order?

      Did external factors have any sway upon his actions or is it simply because of the new order?

      Who is wolfie boy, and why does he lie?

      Delete
    6. The saying " get a life " coming from a chardonnay sipping, salmon coloured shorts wearing credit card borrowing beta boy, who spends hours daily refreshing the comment section of a blog he has no association with, but to seek revenge over a higher skilled player of a video game who popped his little ship is kind of ironic don't you think.

      Cry some more soy boi.

      Delete
    7. Who is crying?

      Delete
    8. Is wolfie boy crying and is he the one you are describing in your comment post?

      How do you know so much about this person?

    9. You are johhny.

      Hahahaha, everybody knows your butthurt, seek mental health advice pleb, asking questions pretending to be another anon and answering the question with another anon is just plain weird.

      You are the saltiest freak that comments here.

      Why are you so jelous of everybody?

      Delete
    10. But I am not johhny.

      What is butthurt?

      I do not have any mental illnesses that require professional assistance.

      A human body contains a lot of water, so there isn't any free salt in the body, just a bunch of sodium and chlorine floating around. In terms of how much, a human body contains approximately 0.15 percent by weight chlorine and 0.15 percent by weight sodium. So no I am not that salty.

      I am not jealous, BTW you misspelled jealous.

      Is this how you treat everyone who questions your social group?

      Not very inviting.

    11. Another one of the personalities coming into the frontal lobe.

      Hahahahaha.

      Good to know i have all of you at a sub 15 min refresh rate of the comment section.

      Now that is an achievement.

    12. Dissociative identity disorder (DID), also known as multiple personality disorder (MPD), is a mental disorder characterized by at least two distinct and relatively enduring identities or dissociated personality states.

      Are you implying that you have this disorder and believe it to be an achievement?

      Delete
    13. He's implying you are posting as multiple anoms, and distinguishing between these anoms by posting with a different "tone". Maybe I can't explain it, but we have seen this over and over, some butthurt shitter gets mad and rages in these comments. Spewing filth and juvenile attempts at "reverse psychology" or just plain lashing out with little to no emotional control, then comes back later asking loaded questions in a "innocent" manner.

      And personally I agree with Karma, odds are you're just that little johnny pirtle cunt. If you truly wanted to understand what was happening here you would read the blog, miner. If you've ever stepped in dog shit then you remember how vile it was, that's what it means in EVE when someone calls you a miner, they think of you not just as dog shit, but the dog shit stuck to their shoe. Get the hose!

      Useless spergs, leave here and take your EVE sub with you, your kind are not wanted here. If you are too ignorant to find the answer to your questions in these very pages then you are too stupid to fit in here. You should do fine in wowatever themepark you find next.

      Quit shitting up EVE!

      Buh bye

    14. You seem as if you are abusive, mental counselling will be of great benefit to you in the near future.

      Your last sentence fragment: : "Quit shitting up EVE!" Is also one I have been hearing but used in negative connotations to the code, perhaps you should be one to take his own advise.
