Lucifers Hammer

So anyone that reads Evoganda may be aware Rixx has made his of corp of lucifers hammer into the sister corp of Stay Frosty, What was originally thought of as a home for alts and an easy way to be set blue will now become a legitimate indy corp in its own right.

The trouble with this is rixx has neither the time nor the energy to run two corps..so he has set a "council of directors" in place to run in his stead..and for some reson beyond my understanding he trusts me enough to make vespa a Director.

I have been considering this for the last couple of days and I have some pretty big ideas of stuff vespa is doing..for a start, she needs to earn me more than astral spends, ATM I tend to fund my playtime with Isk from selling plex which allows me to focus on PVP rather than grinding in the precious time i have, however while I will continue to do this I want vespa to amass a small fortune in the background.

I also want to begin (well already have sort of) seeding Stay frosty's systems with ships and mods to buy..mainly AF's cruisers and the odd BC, which can turn a small profit, but i dont own a jump freighter yet and importing these in a transport ship is cutting into my time again, so will probably be using black frog unless a corpie happens to want the isk instead.

with this in mind i will be reducing activity in the short term with astral (REDUCE not stop) and use vespa to help get lucifers hammer going and build astral a financial empire with which to dominate lowsec. /Astral

In The End It's All Fun

I have seen a lot of people fall by the wayside in eve because they stop doing what is fun, hell it even happened to me a few times..yup I quit...then came back..then quit...then came back. That's why battleclinic thinks astral has 70 mill sp but in reality has 35 ( although vespa also has 12 mill) still ..

So with that in mind I decided to put down in ink (sort of) what it is that after almost 5 years of eve still gets my juices going and tickles my pickle!

Firstly- solo frigate combat: This is what eve is all about, the thrill of finding a ship you think you can take, assessing the odds, then going for it anyway :) NOTHING gets the adrenaline going quite like this, and it doesn't matter if its a 5 mill tristan or a 200 mill daredevil you just need to find that thrill again and again, the fact that loss in eve is real make you body react like a high stakes poker game EVERY time, you learn to function with it, but it doesn't go away.

Secondly - Small gangs : Same premise as above except the adrenaline hit is MUCH lower, still there but now you got something you didn't before.. a team! the social aspect of having fun in a group kicks in and win or lose you share those little WTF moments and have a great laugh as you go ..hunting baiting...killing...its awsome.

Thirdly : undocking with a shit load of goods : this may sound dull.. but when you have been on the reciving end of a gank you will realize just how easy people can take your stuff away, and when you undock in a transport ship with half a bill of mods and ships in the hold, in a known gank system...oo there is that sweet adrenaline again

Lastly- Selling my shit: this is what entertains me while I work buy low sell high...or my way buy in high (sec) sell in low (sec), not mega bucks but I often have 500 mill to 1 bill in orders up at any time, and watching the money trickle in makes my day just that lil bit sweeter
