OP  12/19/06 2:33:21 AM#1

This is a little post I made (was planning for it a bit earlier) this past september to commemorate my 2nd anniversary in my corp Dark Centuri Inc. It's sort of a wistful, mushy thing, but at the same time, it gives a pretty accurate history of what I went through to get where I am today in EVE. It covers my first trips into CFS (Coalition of Free Stars) space and ends when I first join my current corp.

I decided to leave it unedited, just for prosterity.

Also, I think it's another good example of "finding your own fun" and my own mantra of "Take risks, make friends." Such examples I think are needed to show new players just how satisfying this game can be.

The original thread is here.

BTW...this probably will be my last "practical example" about EVE for awhile, unless something else big comes down the pipe. Personally, I think some knowledgable people posting detailed alliance histories would be a great boon to this forum.

Enjoy and reviews are appreciated.
___________________________________

A little over two years ago I, a member of Solstice Systems Development Concourse first visited Querious. I was yearning for the riches of 0.0 space and hearing stories of the charity of the CFS, packed in a Vigil class fitted with every single item that though would help me survive in lawless space (my corp mates back then thought my mission was suicidal.)

The Vigil was named Defiance.

The first trip went pretty smoothly, albiet I was unexpectedly disappointed at first, I was expecting 0.0 space to have every single belt completely full of rare ores, but was only finding kernite in my travels in the 9cg pipe. Though I finally found my objective (with the helpful advice of a local, Sheppard I believe) in the system SVM. I mined a tiny bit of Bistot into Defiance's hold and left Querious, running through some CA raiders (namedly Cursed and Hellfire).

My next trip was more interesting. This time I was in a Stabber cruiser named Sanctimonia (fitted for speed, with 1 100mn and 1 or 2 10 mn ABs). I had to run past a CA A2 blockade that day, and was chased by Zealota in a Rupture.

[ 2004.07.29 22:24:48 ] Creed Richards > woohoo!
[ 2004.07.29 22:25:47 ] Joshvader star > Call the belt Bonanza Belt

In my first visit I met Mentelfor, who was asking in local for some help mining. I accepted (Sanctimonia was equipped for mining). We took a belt and started chatting, and became friends. It turns out I needed his friendship to clear up a little "misunderstanding."

My next passage into Querious I was in a Stabber blockade runner again, it was either the Sanctimonia or Deo Invante (still have that ship). I forget which I was in, I think it was K-L690, but once I was approaching the southern gate (didn't have instas past K7D). All of a sudden a bunch of ships decloaked around the gate and started to attack me. I turned my ship around in a hurry, fired all the afterburners and sped away to the north gate at with missiles flying around me. They managed to just nick my armor when I finally managed to get into warp. After making it to the gate (which a few pursuers) I jumped around until I came to a safe position. I had a few words with my attackers then, and though I didn't know it at the time, (I found out when I was looking for this incident in my chat logs,) it was my first contact with my future CEO.

[ 2004.08.03 00:46:09 ] DeBz > haha you must have checked a LOOOOOOOOONG time ago pal
[ 2004.08.03 00:46:41 ] Nikolai Reidar > this is our house

I have to say, that is so much like Droewa! :P

I took a look at my combat log after they left and found that a CFS member was attacking me, I convoed him and found out they everyone was on pins and needles because of a massive CA attack. I also found out Debz was in Mente's corp. I convoed Mente and everything got cleared up, and made another friend (with Debz) and we mined together a bit.

I really should convo him more. Anyway...

Things went back to normal, I was a happy neutral under the CFS charter, working with the locals (I hired protection for my mining by offering people half my ore). I even entered a scramble gang against a CA raven fleet in a pitifully refitted mining stabber (it had only 2 heavy lauchers and a couple small laser guns IIRC). Thankfully they went into Delve.

Anyway, while I was doing the "oh so exciting!" business of hauling my ore to 3bk. I ran into Droewa again, as I said before I didn't know of him at the time (nor him attacking me), but it turns out that a little detail in my bio saved me from being fired on a second time.

Thus began the first of many convos.


[ 2004.08.12 00:35:51 ] Creed Richards > Hello?

[ 2004.08.12 00:38:05 ] Creed Richards > It's be good exercise
[ 2004.08.12 00:38:16 ] Droewa > yep
[ 2004.08.12 00:38:53 ] Creed Richards > So, what are you doing, patrolling?
[ 2004.08.12 00:38:54 ] Droewa > i would like to keep in touch with a fellow chicago native :)
[ 2004.08.12 00:39:19 ] Creed Richards > Sure
[ 2004.08.12 00:39:33 ] Droewa > cool putting you in adress book
[ 2004.08.12 00:39:40 ] Creed Richards > I'm afraid I don't go downtown all that much though
[ 2004.08.12 00:39:44 ] Creed Richards > same here
[ 2004.08.12 00:40:22 ] Droewa > also set your standing to good
[ 2004.08.12 00:40:45 ] Creed Richards > Thanks

I convoed him several times in the following weeks. Our third convo was particularly noteworthy...


[ 2004.08.14 17:41:49 ] Droewa > why dont you just jion my corp?
[ 2004.08.14 17:41:58 ] Droewa > it would be better for you
[ 2004.08.14 17:42:46 ] Creed Richards > SSDC has done nothing to warrant me leaving
[ 2004.08.14 17:43:26 ] Creed Richards > And if I joined you and SSDC (which I assume is possible), it wouldn't be fair to either
[ 2004.08.14 17:45:29 ] Droewa > well this is where the isk is at and you are from my home town
[ 2004.08.14 17:47:34 ] Droewa > and if your corp would like they could just move to ipref and then we could contrct to buy low end minns from you and sell high end minns to you
[ 2004.08.14 17:51:21 ] Creed Richards > That is an offer worth considering, but I have no power to negotiate, my CEO is intent on staying aloof of 0.0 politics and wars, I'm probably a lot more impatient than him

Despite my rejection, his offer was EXTREMELY tempting. I just didn't want to leave SSDC on a whim. But something unexpected happened two weeks later.


[ 2004.08.31 14:31:07 ] Creed Richards > Hey Vein
[ 2004.08.31 14:31:41 ] Veinnail > Hello creed
[ 2004.08.31 14:32:01 ] Veinnail > creed i think we have to let you go.
[ 2004.08.31 14:32:15 ] Veinnail > actually im sure.
[ 2004.08.31 14:32:26 ] Creed Richards > Why is that?
[ 2004.08.31 14:33:38 ] Veinnail > numerous times there have been situations where co-operation, and respect are crossed
[ 2004.08.31 14:34:54 ] Veinnail > u said you have contacts in CFS that want you to join them. that may be a better idea,
[ 2004.08.31 14:35:27 ] Creed Richards > Yes I have a few friends there
[ 2004.08.31 14:36:17 ] Veinnail > effective this afternoon we will be removing you from SSDC.
[ 2004.08.31 14:37:21 ] Creed Richards > Very well, I ask that the BPCs which I placed in the BPC hanger in Hak be returned to me, namely the tempest, typhoon, and rupture BPCs

The words don't convey the emotion, I was shocked and saddened by this revelation. I vacated the empire home I came to know (Bei and Hakisalki) and moved farther south in the metropolis region. My likely guess why they let me go was probably because I was constantly talking about my experiences in Querious. I very often invited them to join me there, but they didn't want to risk it because of the hostilities going on there.

Despite SSDC's plans to join XETIC, they became thrall of the Old Pirate Syndicate, joined FOE, Union, and ultimately Forsaken Empire, as of right now I believe they are not part of an alliance.

Anyway, my next convo with Droewa turned things aroudn quite a bit.

And the rest is history...

It's been a interesting 2 years since then. I came from a simple member of JAKD to a senior director. Been through the good times and hard times. There were periods where it seemed JAKD might fail, but we have grown much since then, our corp has never been stronger.

It has also been a great pleasure to fly with FIX. We've all been through a bunch of hard times together, though thick and thin, but I will always work for FIX as long as she lives. I firmly believe, that as long as we work in justice, we will never truly die.

Therefore, I give my fondest thanks to all FIX members, past and present, and all JAKD members, past and present. I do miss you so much Boldyn. I hope to fly with you as long as the EVE servers stay on.

Also, thanks for your patient reading of the musings of an overly emotional and wistful FIXian.

May God Bless FIX and JAKD.

Especially you Droewa, thank you for having me in your corp, God bless you.

Creed Richards

Nice post Creed!

And yes, SSDC is not in any alliance at this time.  In fact they've pretty much become pirates in the Otosela region.  :)

You're joking! Man, when I was a part of them they were very anti pirate. Wow, that's a switch.

Nope... not joking... they appear to base out of the station in the 0.2 system btwn Otosela and EOA (Can't remember the name at the moment).  Our alliance has traded shots with them several times.  Occasionally they'll fly a small group out to FDZ and we'll play tag with them in that area for a bit.


Decent guys (for pirates) and pretty good PVP'ers too.  Though they're not around much since the stab nerf :)  They relied pretty heavy on stabs for their hit and run stuff.  *snickers*

all of those old curse alliance guys were great, except for the ceo's that weren't from north america, almost every one of them equals tard.

i register for this website to reply to this..

 

i've never worn a wcs into fdz. nor have i any fitted on any ships this accnt flys. and i dont know anyone who would.  as for hit and run.. .i remember quite a bit of sitting in fdz with three people to your twenty. all of yours docked.. we had better things to do than come to watch you sit in docks.  so dont call my guys wcs riders. when you've no proof. (who wears wcs... really..  unless your travelling..) so many people that wore/wear wcs, would have won certain 1v1's if they had used that slot for tank/cap/damage/backups or w/e else.  

 

to creed: you're so cuddly and emotional much love o/
