Previously, on MinerBumping... Akmaund Askiras had a dream: To become the most powerful anti-Code resistance fighter in highsec's history. To claim leadership over Anti-Ganking, Akmaund would first need to win victories against the New Order in the Isanamo system. But after Akmaund bragged about his misdeeds in the Anti-Ganking channel, he was shocked by the reaction he got.
An Anti-Ganker named Knowledgeminer immediately rained on Akmaund's parade. He pointed out that Akmaund had failed to prevent ganks--and indeed, that Akmaund had been ganked himself.
The aspiring rebel leader swiftly went into damage control mode. He claimed that his repeated failures in Isanamo had been victories.
Fortunately, Akmaund had been the only Anti-Ganker in the system, so there were no witnesses to contradict his version of events. With any luck, Knowledgeminer would go away and let Akmaund celebrate in peace.
Knowledgeminer proved to be stubborn. He refused to accept Akmaund's version of events. But he wasn't in Isanamo. How dare he?
Furious, Akmaund insisted that he'd stopped ganks and saved miners. For some reason, Knowledgeminer had a vendetta against him. Where was his proof?
Akmaund's downfall was one familiar to Anti-Gankers all across highsec: Killboards. There was API-verified evidence that Akmaund had failed to prevent ganks. He couldn't simply dream up victories against the mighty CODE. alliance.
Akmaund was now convinced that there could be only one explanation for Knowledgeminer's refusal to indulge his anti-Code fantasies: He must be a CODE. operative!
In fact, Knowlegeminer was an Anti-Ganker, not a CODE. spy. For some reason, Knowledgeminer's bio was used as evidence of his secret pro-Code sympathies.
Then again, if Knowledgeminer was really a spy, how did he make it through Anti-Ganking's rigorous security procedures? Akmaund didn't know what to think. One thing he did know: Knowledgeminer was an obstacle in the path of his destiny to lead Anti-Ganking.
If Akmaund was ever going to take command of the anti-Code resistance, he would need to find a way to deal with Knowledgeminer.
Knowledgeminer and his approach drew the criticism of his fellow rebels. After all, if they couldn't fantasize about fictional victories over the Code, they wouldn't have any victories at all.
While the members of CODE. continued to gank, Akmaund found himself fighting a rearguard action against the very people he was supposed to be inspiring. Could Akmaund's brilliant career be over before it started?
To be continued...
