Previously, on MinerBumping... Each day, aiva naali more fully integrated himself into the Imperium's command structure--and its ruthless endgame culture.
Impatient and ambitious, aiva frequently used Skill Injectors to gain the ability to fly bigger and more powerful ships. When called upon to fund the construction of such ships, however, aiva gathered money by extracting those very same skillpoints.
Luckily for aiva, it was not necessary to scrape together 12 billion isk all at once. The Imperium's shipyards accepted installment payments.
The downside was that all of the installments made for a much more complicated transaction. One needed a mind like aiva's just to keep track of it all.
aiva dutifully extracted and sold off the skillpoints he had purchased a week earlier--and then some.
Though aiva was a miner by trade, he was willing to give all that up in order to fast-track his Nyx. Once he was at the helm of a supercarrier, he could make isk by ratting in nullsec.
...But this raised the question of how aiva would gain access to nullsec ratting space. Despite his prominent position in the Imperium, he was currently a member of Conoco., a very large Russian corp with a dubious reputation.
aiva saw no further profit in belonging to a highsec corp. It was time to join Goonswarm Federation. Long past time, really.
Things were moving quickly now. aiva prepared his journey to the Keberz system, one jump from the entrance to southwestern nullsec.
Since Keberz is a highsec system, aiva could safely park there until his long-awaited invitation to Goonswarm arrived in the mail.
Within minutes, aiva was in Keberz and expecting his invite to Goonswarm. And he was growing impatient.
aiva politely but firmly asked Agent Aiko Danuja yet again to hand him the keys to nullsec. There was no possible excuse for any further delay.
...But then something unexpected happened.
While waiting in Keberz, aiva was contacted by Ygritte Pava, his former corpmate from Conoco. Ygritte had learned that aiva abandoned the corporation. And she demanded an explanation.
To be continued...
