The Best Revenge, Part 64

Previously, on MinerBumping... aiva naali aka FighterJets GuitarSolo 1000Years had big plans for the future. To achieve his goal of total dominion over nullsec, aiva decided to enlist the aid of Sort Dragon, one of the most notorious figures in nullsec.


Key members of aiva's council managed to make contact with Sort Dragon. They carefully broached the subject of aiva's proposed partnership.


So far, so good. aiva's council was optimistic. But when it comes to Sort Dragon, alliances are as easily broken as they are made.


aiva was delighted to learn that Sort Dragon could be called upon to assist with Operation Devil's Night.


Of course, aiva could not speak with Sort Dragon directly. The Imperium's much-vaunted Corps Diplomatique were very territorial about that kind of thing.


While preparations for Devil's Night were being made, aiva went into full miner mode. It was time for him to start refilling his wallet.


As usual, aiva was furiously multitasking. In addition to mining, aiva was still engaged in his old PLEX market manipulation scheme. He still had high hopes for controlling the PLEX market, but mining in highsec was necessary for aiva to maintain sufficient liquidity.


aiva's council reminded him that he could acquire more ore if he recruited someone--anyone--to his highsec mining corporation.
FighterJets GuitarSolo 1000Years > a pleasure to meet you
THE DOOM KNIGHT > thank u
THE DOOM KNIGHT > me 2
FighterJets GuitarSolo 1000Years > so your looking for friends or a corp
While operating under his FighterJets cover identity, aiva finally managed to locate a potential recruit.
THE DOOM KNIGHT > i have a q. actually like if iam in a corp still i can play solo or not
THE DOOM KNIGHT > can i be in more than one corp
THE DOOM KNIGHT > and i want a mining corp
THE DOOM KNIGHT > like i dwnna ninja gas harvisting anymore
The potential recruit was a newly minted character with a lot of basic questions about the game. And aiva had all the answers.
FighterJets GuitarSolo 1000Years > you can in high sec its a great way to learn how to fly your ship in low its good to learn how to fight in null its advised agains flying solo and now for a question of my own are you an alpha player
THE DOOM KNIGHT > yes
THE DOOM KNIGHT > iam
FighterJets GuitarSolo 1000Years > ok how would you like to get to omega
THE DOOM KNIGHT > not now
The rookie wasn't ready to spend money on an EVE subscription. Which was fine, because aiva had a proposal for him:
FighterJets GuitarSolo 1000Years > for free
THE DOOM KNIGHT > what do u get in return
FighterJets GuitarSolo 1000Years > a helper
THE DOOM KNIGHT > as if dude
THE DOOM KNIGHT > no ty
...Rejected again.


So much for aiva's recruitment drive.

To be continued...

    1. That channel is the largest thought bubble i have ever seen.

      If only those ISD beta males had met a girl earlier in life it could have been a usefull place to sell a permit.

  2. Did aiva ever get a mining permit? I'm concerned about the Code compliance of his mining operation

    1. Do you think a miner would apply for Directorship in Goonswarm without a permit? That would be very sloppy. Someone of aiva's caliber would never forget having his paperwork in order, right?

  3. Operation Devil's Night was when I finally started to appreciate his leadership, that was the moment we finally broke Pandemic.
