In the Nakugard system, an anti-Code carebear was barking.
On occasion, someone who does not approve of the Code will attempt to warn his fellow rebels of an impending gank. It doesn't work. The rebels never did figure out how to alert AFK miners who don't watch local.
The barking rebel in question, a fellow named Lahnius, should've known better. He's been at this for years.
Agent shootyou longtyme had no trouble ganking his target. And, frankly, our Agent didn't mind the publicity. But the name Lahnius sounded familiar to him. Who was Lahnius, again?
A quick Google search revealed that Lahnius was the star of a 24-part epic on MinerBumping. In case you don't have time to go back and read all 24 parts, here's a quick recap:
Lahnius develops an unhelpful obsession with Agent Alt 00...
Lahnius goes mad...
Finally, an ecstatic rant culminating in the rebel's comeuppance...
KABOOM! Lahnius loses everything; the Code always wins. Now you're up to speed, dear reader.
Lahnius didn't fully appreciate the "Tapestry of Tears" series. Nor did he approve of Agents linking it in local a year after its publication. Lahnius did have a supporter, though: Hoo Jorgan.
One element of the Tapestry of Tears I didn't mention: Lahnius' corp consisted of his alts. He carried on conversations with them in local like sock puppets.
Lahnius' alts always laughed at his jokes.
After all this time, Lahnius hadn't changed. His mad rants and the laughter of his alts echoed across Nakugard.
But perhaps the Tapestry of Tears did affect Lahnius in some way. He didn't want his EVE career to be defined by a series of MinerBumping posts. The anti-Code rebel had something to prove.
To be continued...
