Previously, on MinerBumping... Bedeviled by the notoriety he gained from the "Tapestry of Tears" series, Lahnius sought to reinvent himself as a triumphant Anti-Ganker. Yet he was haunted by demons: unpleasant memories of one Agent Alt 00.
Lahnius yearned for the respect and status that he assumed would come from being a leader of the anti-Code resistance.
...But said respect and status proved elusive. No one would take Lahnius seriously--not even miners.
Lahnius came to the conclusion that Alt 00--even though he hadn't seen the Agent in quite some time--was the source of all of his problems. He had to defeat her.
The anti-Code rebel set out on a campaign to discredit and defeat Alt 00, retroactively. He would rewrite the Tapestry of Tears and give it a different ending.
Lahnius was accustomed to making soliloquies in local chat. But a new problem surfaced: Captain Ivana Gankalot. Captain Ivana was familiar with the Tapestry of Tears series on MinerBumping and challenged Lahnius on each of his outrageous claims.
Since Lahnius had never tasted victory before, he didn't know what it looked like. So he simply repeated "I won" over and over. Would it be enough to persuade the locals?
Eventually, Lahnius realized that he would need to elaborate. He declared Alt 00 to have been banished from EVE.
Captain Ivana was uncertain of what exactly Lahnius was claiming credit for. Regardless, she had some doubts about his credibility.
New, scandalous details emerged.
Lahnius resumed his soliloquy about deceiving and defeating Alt 00. Yet his war stories failed to capture the imagination of the public who heard them.
Just as Lahnius got rolling, Captain Ivana returned to spoil the mood.
For the first time since he could remember, Lahnius found himself being persistently fact-checked in local. If he was ever going to rebuild his reputation, Lahnius would need to find a way to defeat Captain Ivana.
To be continued...
