There's a perception among some that the New Order only cares about ganking big, juicy targets. And it's true that our Code enforcers appreciate big, juicy killmails. However, they kill every bot-aspirant in highsec, even Venture pilots. Big or small, the Code comes to them all.
Agent Bob ganked Reaver Ventris, who turned out to be what the rebels would call a "newbro". Unlike other "newbros", he wasn't some six-year veteran of the highsec asteroid belts.
Bob the Fourth > Reaver Ventris are you ready to buy your permit yet?Bob noticed that Reaver hadn't responded well to his post-gank killmail. Luckily, he happened to see Reaver again in the same system.
Reaver Ventris > lol
Vera Vala > I lost mine, could I get another one?
Bob the Fourth > I can offer you both a one time special deal, just send me 20 Million ISK and I'll let you each have one permit.
Reaver Ventris > meh, i gave him 1 isk for making my day lolThough he'd been angry for a couple days after losing his Venture, the miner appeared to cheer up when he saw what a nice, charming person Bob was.
Bob the Fourth > all donations to the Code enforcement fund are gratefully accepted
Reaver Ventris > lmao this guy ^^^
Bob the Fourth > well Reaver Ventris, I'm glad your mood seems to have improved since your last email.
Reaver Ventris > Bob the Fourth you make my email sound hostile when you're the one who shot without warning...But then, just as quickly, Reaver's mood turned sour again. Our Agent judged that this was one of those carebears who ran hot and cold.
Bob the Fourth > You had plenty of warning. Well, you would have if you were following The Code.
Reaver Ventris > Bob the Fourth ppfffftt code... who is anyone to tell me what law i follow? you can hunt me down for being a vagrant to your laws, but i will always be an outsider to you and your people
Bob the Fourth > that's a very rebelious statement. I think you should go reread The Code and consider your choices.Sometimes new MinerBumping readers are surprised to see how much attention our Agents give to individual carebears. It makes more sense when you realize that our Agents are experts at multitasking. They often carry on multiple conversations at once, all while bumping or ganking other targets. You might say that this strength of our Agents is a force multiplier.
Reaver Ventris > yes it was, i hope you enjoyed it theres much more to come
Vera Vala > I dont need a permit if you are here and I'm in another system. You cant see me soooo
Bob the Fourth > Vera Vala are you another miner that claims to be afk mining while sat in a station?
Vera Vala > I'm just mining somewhere else while you are sitting here, so no worries Im safe
Vera Vala > I'm safe nothing to worry about
Bob the Fourth > We the Agents of the New Order are working for the betterment of all High Sec. Why would you want to stand in the way of such progress?As with so many other isk-grinders, Reaver had a selfish attitude. It was obvious that he hadn't yet embraced the highsec community spirit.
Reaver Ventris > describe this betterment? what benefit is there to me?
Reaver Ventris > its just a code for the strong to prey on the weak
Bob the Fourth > i guess first off, you'll need to realize that it's not all about you.
Reaver Ventris > no its not... its about my corpBarely a week into the game, Reaver was already prejudiced against Code enforcers.
Reaver Ventris > and co-operation
Reaver Ventris > not extortion
Reaver Ventris > i dont stand for your kind
Bob the Fourth > As a high sec miner, you occupy the space at the very bottom of the food chain. The sooner you accept that the happier you'll be.Bob was concerned for Reaver's future. The miner was too young to be playing into miner stereotypes. At this rate, he could end up becoming a bitter Anti-Ganker in a month or two.
Vera Vala > We know that you have been sent here to convince us to worship being more powerful than all of us. But you must know that like all of us, youre not gods.
Reaver Ventris > n who says ionly mine hisec?
Reaver Ventris > so stuff your foodchain
Bob the Fourth > I see, so you are the alt of someone powerfull in Null Sec?Agent Bob was pleased to see that the miner's mind wasn't entirely gone. Corrupted, maybe, but perhaps all was not lost.
Reaver Ventris > lol no
Reaver Ventris > im a nebie who learned fast
Reaver Ventris > *newbie
Bob the Fourth > well done for admiting it. now, about your permit...
Reaver Ventris > you can keep it mateJust when things started looking up, the miner descended back into the darkest places of his soul. This mission was turning into a roller coaster ride.
Reaver Ventris > i wont be needing that other to wipe me bum tbh
Reaver Ventris > stop tryna sell your tissues
Bob the Fourth > well, you should be setting a good example for your new brothers in mining.
Reaver Ventris > i am... rise up brothers. free yourselves from the oprressors!!!
Ali Mony > Not that I encourage Bob's piracy but it sdure can be good for businessWhen you're new to EVE and you have no one to guide you, things can go bad in a hurry. The newbie miner had become radicalized. Was there any chance for Bob to save him?
Dalmont Delantee > Happy for Bob to pop whoever he wants, thats the game :)
Reaver Ventris > he can do what he likes, but he aint getting a penny from me
Reaver Ventris > especiallly nt after calling me scum
Bob the Fourth > When did i call you scum?
Reaver Ventris > bottom of the foodchain... scum.... its all in the code my friend
