Apologies and time off
]]> Apologies to anyone who may have been offended or upset over recent posts. I’ll be taking some time off from active pod time, and this journal for awhile. Fly safe and good hunting

Urik Kahn passes the 4k kill mark in Militia
Although he long ago passed the 4000 kills mark for personal kills/assists, Urik has now passed the 4K mark as a Militia pilot, currently standing at 4007 credited kills. This keeps him easily in the top ten of top Minmatar Militia pilots, coming in at #6. Congratulations, Urik. We were flying with a pilot last evening eager to reach his 100th kill mark, how long ago that now seems to us. ...
Plex fighting... Late Nite style
A small battle at a Republic sovereignty outpost in Auga, with the Amarr suffering heavy losses. But I still how the Imperial Crusade think they can even attempt to capture a Minmatar complex in of all places, Auga… Wanted to join this fight, but I had pressing duties planetside. You would think that members of my large and varied clan would understand that the Republic needs my...
The Icy Hawt™: The Icy Hawt #15 →
theicyhawt: So I took a long break from EVE, mainly to sort out the end of the semester. I had papers that needed writing, exams that needed grading and a whole lot of bureaucratic mess that needed sorting. Add in that a couple friends started playing another MMO and got me kinda hooked on it… at least…
The Icy Hawt™: Intelligence Leak: TRIAD -vs- HTH →
theicyhawt: House Theodoulos (HTH) has moved its membership to the system of Vard, home of old-time Liberation Force veterans T.R.I.A.D. Both these corps have a heavy role-playing background and are home to some the more unique and special members of their respective militias. Icy Hawt™ intelligence…
Shooting a friend... or not.
Last night I was in a fleet that engaged Shalee and her allies multiple times. Although I was involved in only one of her several ship and crew losses, I freely admit I still feel conflicted every time I lock one of her vessels. When her Harbinger exploded, leaving a scattering of escape pods as well as her own capsuleer pod, I called out an order to let her go, and then I quickly tractored in...
Kills of the Week
OK, so I’m lazy. I can’t choose among three sweet killmails, so here are all three for your enjoyment. Leo 690’s Machariel This is sweet on several levels, and a nice feather in Annah’s cap. How a Machariel lets itself be caught by a BC fleet… ‘nuff said. Vovick’s Loki Why people in sexy ships think they can solo in the war zone… nice drop...
Back in pod...
A lot of planetside events and clan obligations have kept me out of pod for the last 5 days or so… it was good to get back in the goo lat night—odd how the most repulsive experiences, when associated with something pleasurable, can be missed. It was a very quiet night. Shalee and Eran were flying around and losing ships, with the help of the small Late Nite fleet patrolling the war...

Heathen Achievement Award Winners Announced →
Kazzzi states that, in his opinion, Bahamut420 is one of the greatest enemies of the empire and that they made the right decision when choosing him as the winner.
Worst. Hurricane. Fit. Ever.
I noticed on our killboard that Torothnax had killed somebody’s Hurricane in high sec. Opening the mail resulted in a small amount of puzzlement (how did he get the ‘cane to engage in high sec w/out CONCORD being involved, without can-flipping?) and a large amount of amusement over the fit of the cane. Toro’s comment was simply this: In my defence it was 2 (badly fit)...

Outnumbered and outfought
We’re going through one of those times again when there are few Minmatar around and LOTS of Amarr. With those numbers, the Amarr can simply continuously overship and outweigh any fleet we can hope to bring. Last night was a perfect example. So, the Amarr are out in a light-medium fleet, outnumbering a smaller Minmatar BC fleet at least 2 to 1. But instead of engaging with relatively...
Pimp Cane Down
I imagine that there must be pod pilots out there with ISK to burn. They are just so wealthy they have nothing better to do than spend ISK on faction fitting and t2 rigging battlecruisers. Truth is stranger than fiction. This hurricane cost more than a Machariel. Over a 600 million ISK drop in loot. I’m just at a loss for any more words. And what the hell is this?
