Previously, on MinerBumping... Although Goon Security was still busy checking his credentials, aiva naali settled into his position as the strategic commander of the Imperium. With the help of his friends in the New Order, aiva now commanded nullsec's largest coalition in its massive war against Pandemic Horde.
aiva looked forward to the day that he could command the Imperium's fleets in person. For now, though, he instructed his colleagues on how to solve a civil war among Chinese EVE players.
A capable diplomat in his own right, aiva preferred to focus his attention on developing strategies for all-out warfare. That was his specialty.
As a disciple of Sun Tzu, aiva knew the importance of deception. That was what Operation "shrub" was all about; he eagerly awaited news of its success.
Agent Aiko Danuja--known on Discord as "Vom"--kept aiva apprised of the Chinese conflict. Though bloody, it appeared that the Imperium would be victorious.
In spite of all the distractions, aiva kept his eye on the ball. Defeating Pandemic Horde was his primary objective. Once PH was out of the way, aiva could turn his attention to Test Alliance Please Ignore and its legions.
As the Imperium's master strategist, it was aiva's job to remember the big picture. As he often reminded anyone who would listen, aiva was always a few steps ahead of everyone else.
aiva's intense focus on the defeat of PH did not prevent him from exploring his other interests, however. On occasion, he introduced his Discord friends to new concepts.
For example, aiva was responsible for designing popular fits for stealth bombers. Having shared that nugget, the master strategist went back to work on EVE's next great war.
After everything they had been through together, aiva and Aiko had established a fair amount of trust with one another. aiva was impressed with the way that Aiko had carried out his orders. The time had come to pay the latest installment in the Goon security fee. At over 5 billion isk, the price was steep--but worth it. After all, aiva would soon be playing with fleets worth trillions.
But the security check would continue for now.
With the deposit of his latest fees, aiva felt the time was ripe to send an update to the Saviour of Highsec. Naturally, the ruler of highsec was very interested in hearing about aiva's progress in pacifying nullsec.
And there was indeed much news to share.
