A Very Code Christmas

It's that time of year once again. Four years ago, the world of EVE literature was enriched--some would say birthed--by A Highsec Christmas Carol. It's a marvelous tale that only seems to grow more relevant by the year, even though some of EVE's mechanics have changed since the story was penned.

If you've never read A Highsec Christmas Carol before, read it now--you're in for a treat. If you've already read it, read it again--you're in for a treat. Those who live in highsec are strongly encouraged to read it each year. Permit-carrying miners would do well to have a good working knowledge of the story in case an Agent stops by and strikes up a conversation about it.

For those who prefer to get their literature in audio form, Sasha Nemtsov's highly acclaimed reading is for you:


If you have young children and want to get them in the spirit, make them listen to the entirety of A Highsec Christmas Carol before they're allowed to open any of their presents. They'll remember it forever.

  1. Merry Christmas to James 315, the agents of CODE and my fellow eggers.

    What? It's Christmas. I have my differences with CODE but I am not an asshole. They are real people behind these profiles. I hope everyone on EVE are in good health and spirits this season.

    1. Regardless of your old Earth superstitions, today is another Monday that you have chosen to spend as a non-compliant alpha leech, and your tidings are a thinly veiled attempt to beg up some traffic for your self-serving cringe blog. You spend a lot of time begging here for someone who claims to be anti-Code.

      Shouldn't you be with your kind, worshipping an evergreen and trying to assuage your guilt at being a leech by exchanging gaudily wrapped trinkets with your alpha spawn?

      I'm sure your (sym)pathetic friends will take offense, and all I can say is: calm down miners. You joined an mmorpg and decided to rp a lowly alpha criminal. Get subbed, get a permit, or get rekt leech.


      Happy Monday!


      The Code always wins!

      Always!

    1. It's what they call alpha leeches who refuse to support EVE with a subscription maybe?

      In the future please don't encourage interaction with that poor, she is anti-EVE.

    2. Egger is slang for capsuler, as the capsule looks rather like an egg.
