Previously, on MinerBumping... Day by day, action by action, plan by plan, aiva naali built himself into one of the leading figures of nullsec. Only one thing did aiva lack: A supercap flagship. He had invested billions into his Nyx, but the Imperium shipbuilders had yet to complete it.
aiva was no fool: He kept careful track of all the isk he'd spent on his long-awaited Nyx. But nullsec is not a place where everything runs like clockwork.
From his trusted "council", aiva learned that the Imperium's supercap fleet had suffered terrible losses in the war with Pandemic Horde. What did this mean for aiva personally?
aiva yearned for a Nyx. But he knew that as a leader of the Imperium, he could not call upon his soldiers to make sacrifices that he wouldn't make himself.
As much as he wanted to sit at the helm of a Nyx, aiva was willing to do his bit for the Imperium.
...And a grateful Imperium appreciated the sacrifice.
Despite the setbacks, aiva was eager to move forward. The isk would continue to flow.
'Twas a time of rebuilding. In the end, the Imperium would triumph over Pandemic Horde. aiva was certain of it.
The war went on. aiva led from his desk as he always did, trusting that his council would do their best.
It was back to business as usual. aiva and his trusted colleagues fought the good fight.
Nevertheless, nullsec is, as I said, not a place that runs like clockwork. No matter how smoothly things are humming along, there is always--always--the potential for something catastrophic to occur. And when it does, it usually happens out of nowhere.
One day, aiva stepped into the office and dropped a bombshell on his council.
For on that day, aiva naali had discovered MinerBumping.
To be continued...
