Agent Krig Povelli somehow found himself locked in combat with an Orca piloted by Cyrus Farlen. The most peculiar things always seem to happen to Agent Krig.
Krig Povelli > 315 mil. ISK to save your shipAs the battle turned in Krig's favor, the Orca pilot blamed his son for aggressing our Agent's ship. As we've seen, there has been a spate of such child-blaming going on lately.
Cyrus Farlen > sure
Krig Povelli > Send me the ISK
Cyrus Farlen > .sorry kiddo agressed
Krig Povelli > That was only 100 mil.Despite being given precise instructions on how to save his Orca, Cyrus tried to save a little money with some scammy maneuvering. Krig refused to play along. It was 315 million isk or nothing.
Cyrus Farlen > rest when you let me go
Krig Povelli > That is not how this works
Krig Povelli > This is a ransom, not a negotiation
Krig Povelli > If you thought otherwise, it is because I am being polite
Cyrus Farlen > okIncredibly, Cyrus jeopardized the safety of his ship by trying to shave less than 5% off the price. What a greedy little miner!
Cyrus Farlen > can i go now
Krig Povelli > You sent me 300 total
Krig Povelli > I said 315
Krig Povelli > That was 350Karma quickly caught up with the miner, who accidentally overpaid the ransom with his final installment.
Cyrus Farlen > ok
Krig Povelli > Do you know how to follow basic directions?
As a result, Krig had no choice but to destroy the Orca. "But James 315," you say. "The miner paid more than the ransom. Surely that should qualify as compliance?" Not so. According to long-standing precedent from the pre-Code era, overpaying is considered a failure to pay the amount requested. Look it up, it's all there.
Cyrus Farlen > uhhh kiddo killed me, whateverIn the aftermath of his Orca's destruction, Cyrus again blamed his son for the whole incident.
Krig Povelli > You should get a permit
Cyrus Farlen > enjoy the ransom and kll.
Krig Povelli > http://www.minerbumping.com/p/the-code.html
Cyrus Farlen > yeah those are fake and i know it
Krig Povelli > If you had a permit, I would not have to kill youIn truth, Cyrus' own mistakes led to the death of his Orca. It was wrong of him to shift the blame to his "kiddo".
Cyrus Farlen > dude im not new, my kiddo got on and agressed you while I was afk
Krig Povelli > You should teach your kid about permits
Krig Povelli > They are the Law
Krig Povelli > Letting kids mine in a PVP game is not good parenting
Cyrus Farlen > lol he got on while I was in the bathroom thats lifeThe New Order Bathroom Protocol exists for a reason, folks.
Krig Povelli > You should be a better parent
Krig Povelli > Teach him the ways of how to play the game properly
Krig Povelli > And get a permit
Cyrus Farlen > thanks for the advice
Krig Povelli > Any time, friend
Krig Povelli > Would you like to purchase a permit now?In response to the attack, Cyrus vowed to remain at his keyboard whenever his children were present. So, basically, his kids are Code enforcers.
Cyrus Farlen > no, im just not going to go afk when my kids around
Krig Povelli > That's nice, but you still need a permit
Cyrus Farlen > uh huh, you should know that hogs collective is running the same racket in this sector, go talk to them
Krig Povelli > They may be running a "racket"
Krig Povelli > But mine is the law
Cyrus Farlen > yes I know about code for like 2 years nowIt appeared as though Cyrus was finally beginning to realize that crime didn't pay. But instead of embracing a life of Code-compliance, he grew jaded.
Krig Povelli > So you admit your guilt! As well as being AFK without docking up. And bad parenting.
Cyrus Farlen > your word is basically crap since i gave you the money and you blew me up anyway
Krig Povelli > You gave me too much
Krig Povelli > I said 315 mil.
Krig Povelli > For James 315
Cyrus Farlen > rightA silver lining: Cyrus didn't go the dishonourable route of claiming that he had a dozen replacement Orcas ready to go, or that the loss didn't hurt.
Krig Povelli > Instead you tried to scam me by sending me 350 mil.
Cyrus Farlen > anyway, time for lunch peace out
Cyrus Farlen > gonna take me a month to replace that orca
Krig Povelli > o/ Fly safe, friend!
Our Agent noted that Cyrus belonged to a corporation with some red flags in the corp description. But there was no time for Krig to dig too deeply into that. Because, in an extraordinary turn of events, he found himself dealing with another criminal Orca pilot. Yes, even as Krig was wrapping up his conversation with Cyrus, a second Orca in the same ice anomaly went hostile!
Krig Povelli > Hi...And another child goes under the bus!
Krig Povelli > Would you like to save your ship?
Krig Povelli > Well?
Krig Povelli > Viln Raurnaught talk to me, friend
Krig Povelli > This relationship requires communication to work
Viln Raurnaught > sorry I'm dealing with an angry toddler
