  1. > Also not opposed to mining and trading for the cause. If you do end up mining, hit me up in game and I'll buy your ores (Montiold / Intimus Inferi). But, best isk to be made starting out is flying a Heron and diving into wormhole space hunting for faction relic sites. At first, you won't be able to crack every can, but those that you do open will pay 1m-15m ea. I also have a sticked post in the Market subforum covering my buyback program - it can also be some what of a roadmap towards various ways you could be making money, whether you opt to sell to me or not. (Full disclosure, I set the prices so I can use what I need and liquidate the rest profitably in Jita - so if you don't mind hauling it to Jita you'll get the better deal there) I'd also like to expand on the Sidewinder doctrine/fit that Simone mentioned - tackle is always appreciated and typically fast to train into. Its also - imho - the best way to learn some of the nuances of PVP, good tackle pilots often make for good FCs! Just my 2cents
  2. > Sleepers for blue loot That evening I had to step out for abit was the day I anchored up in my WH. Appreciate you coming out to help finish bashing the Athanor, btw! You're welcome, too, to come run sites if you ever want. There is also the corp's "farm-hole" which is a regular C3. I try to keep our statics posted in the MotD. > Abyssal sites soon I have a love hate relationship with Abyssals. They are super cool!!! But, my internet hates me and likes to randomly d/c, and if you're not orbiting you're very likely to go "out of bounds" and die before you can relog. Womp womp. There's some general interest, though, in running the 3-man frigate abyssals amongst the corp. There is also a discord community for PUG'n them. I personally have a pretty cheap stabber fit that can do tier 2 - not the most profitable, but a good starting point rather then the standard gila or HACs. > This has had unfortunate consequences from time to time. I feel like there is a story here?
  3. Hello Jamroar & welcome! Looking forward to more space shenanigans in the future! Some random questions! 1. I have a bag of Jelly Beans. I know this isn't a question, I just felt like sharing. 2. What is your favorite EVE ship so far? 3. Oh no! (or Oh yes?!) You've been bitten by a space spider! You now gain awesome super powers. What are they? And, what is the ironically fitting weakness that accompanies your new found power?
  4. Hello Rorian & welcome! Some random, getting to know you questions: 1. If you were re-incarnated as an EVE ship, what ship would you most likely be and why? 2. Why can't Pluto be a planet? 3. Congratulations, you just won the space lottery! No, no - you didn't win riches. Instead, you're now the duly appointed mid-level bureaucrat of your very own moon in the rim. Formerly a mining penal colony, you're now responsible for the dubious task of making this into a hit tourist attraction! How would you go about doing this?
  5. I hear you on the old bay. $0.05 of old bay is instant $5 mark-up. But, I can't really say much - I'll often pay it and happily. Oh, I've been living in Baltimore for the past 3 years - rats 'n all the good stuff too. Are you a native Marylander or a transplant, like me? What's your take on the flag? Looking forward to hearing some of your experiences on future fleets + your insights on how we can generate content in new and fun ways.
  6. Hello! It seems it has been left to me to introduce you to one of our little traditions: the random questions! Do not worry! These are very serious and totally will be used by the group to determine your status and worth. So don't sweat it! 1. I have a jar of pickles. I take out a pickle, put it in my pocket, and drop a quarter into the jar. 2. Congratulations! You are now the Prime Bureaucrat of a small rim world! You must now declare a "state bird" for your new planet, it does not need to be a bird, but it also can not be any animal already in existence - rather it can be entirely new and unique, or a cross breed of any existing animals. Please describe your new planetary critter! 3. Why is my pocket wet?
  7. Hi Q-moca! Welcome to the forums. So we kind of have this little tradition where we send you a bunch of random questions. Don't worry - your answers totally do matter and will be used against you at your trial membership review! 1. What is the most unique, SFW, thing you've seen / experienced as an NFL stadium guard? 2. If you could have any super power, what would it be? And what would be an appropriately ironic weakness to match? 3. I have a sandwich. This isn't a question, just felt like sharing.
  8. I have mixed feelings about your answer. On one hand, extra points for just owning it instead of googling. On the other. Liquorice? I hate the stuff.
  9. Considering you're already a past member, do we get to still to grill you with questions that wouldn't be out of place in an Big Tech internship interview? Like: Which flavor of jellybean would each planet of the solar system favor, and why?
  10. /thread with that vid, Merri haha. I'm stealing it for future use. Congratulations Grieve!
  11. Tyrlis is your best bet, but I my dad served 20 yrs in the USMC and I grew up around it. I have his perspective 2nd hand, and my own perspective growing up in that culture and making what was a very difficult decision not to serve myself. (My dad and I'm sure Tyrlis would agree that was the right choice for me). On to my contribution to random question time! 12. If you had any super power, what would it be and why? 13. Too bad, you can't have that one. You instead now have the ability to read minds!!!! But only the minds of crustaceans. What do you do with this new found power? 14. Do you know why I started at 12?

    Life's Intro

    Lemon-aid I can't fault you for not liking lemonaid, it is often a tad too tart but I can't not have lemon in my water or tea flavored water. Always go with your gut, especially when it comes to food. Chalupas, like most food, are just modified tacos. In this case, deep fried. Good choice! Most folks around these parts call me Practical. Probably because my real name is super common: Michael. I am from all over - my family moved 7 times while I was growing up, but right now I'm in Baltimore. Any core Zellda or Pokemon game will always rank high on my favorites, but if I had to pick an all time favorite... Baldur's Gate 2. We're very active in Discord - you can jump in there and hollar if you want to group up for something - pvp, strikes, or even to just play through the storyline quests.

    Life's Intro

    Way to go Grieve, take all the usual first date questions. What does that leave me? Only the awkward ones, thats what. Hello Life, nice to meet you. Here are my questions three: 1. When lemons give you life, is that called lemon-aid? 2. I know Grieve already asked what your favorite food, obviously tacos right? So which particular type? I know its hard. You can take a few moments with this one. 3. What do you mean there is supposed to be a 3rd question?
  14. Hello potential new friend! That is a solid intro post! I play with the Destiny 2 and ESO crew. We also as a community will play a random game every now and again, like two weeks ago it was Overwatch and this Friday we're playing HotS. If you're free, you should come out and join us for that too. So as per tradition, here are your questions three: 1. Do you love tacos? I know, it is crazy question: of course you do! So instead, which is your favorite variety? 2. Congratulations on your promotion, Captain Velius! You're given command of your very own deep space capable space craft. What is your mission? What is the name of your ship? And who do you bring with you on the away missions? 3. Oh no! Your crew mutinied! Why and where did they leave you?
  15. I'd call that more like Switzerland: Small and neutral. Do you run marathons without superpowers? Not a bad answer. But time for the bonus round: corn or flour? Hard or soft?
  16. Welcome! As per the bylaws I only just now made up, here are your questions three: 1. Which taco is your favorite? 2. Oh no! You have been bitten by a radioactive critter and now have super powers. What bit you, what powers did it give you, and will you use them for good or evil? 3. Vroom Vroom! You're a talking car. What make/model are you, and what accent do you have?
  17. As promised by Fera, I am here to provide you with at least one odd question. Don't worry! While there is in fact at least one wrong answer, there are infinitely many correct ones. Oh and, they will all totally not entirely affect my impression of you. Okay! Are you confused? I am... lets just get to the questions! You may choose one, or do both for bonus points! 1. Why do you love tacos and which particular one is your favorite? You may take your time, I know its difficult to pick only one. 2. Zap! You've been turned into an animal by a witch! What animal are you, and what curious task must you complete to turn back into yourself?
  18. Yay!!! As per traditional hazing requirements, here are your questions three: 1. Which particular variety of the Taco is your favorite? While I understand it is difficult, I need to ask you to try and only choose one. 2. If you had a super power, who is your nemesis and what did you do to cause such hatred towards you? 3. Poof! Congratulations! You are now king of Titan, moon of Saturn, and the Titanese that live there. What is your first royal edict?

    Hi there potential new friend, welcome to the forums! Typically the intro post is used as a way for you to give us an idea about yourself. And then we pose often nonsensical, but sometimes serious, questions for you to answer as a way to both haze, and get to know you. Don't worry, it is (mostly) all done in good fun. But we need to know some more about you, like: what other games do you play, how do you earn your RL gold, what got you into ESO, which moon of Jupiter would you like to rule. Typical stuff.
  20. Hello Random Panda! So, serious question time. 1. Why do you love tacos (as if you need a reason) and which particular variety is your favorite? (I know its hard to choose, but do try!) 2. What song do you sing while in the shower? 3. Suddenly! A bat witch appears and casts a hex on you. What is the curse, and what is the zany quest you must complete to break it?
  21. If you where a superhero, what would be your one weakness? Or, if you were a supervillan, what would be your odd quirk?
  22. Practical


    Suddenly you are turned into a Godzilla monster: which one are you, and in what city do you decide to fight Godzilla? What is your favorite weapon and/or super in D2? Careful with this one, there is a right answer...
  23. But but spider man? I also have a very crucial question: What is your favorite food and why is it tacos? I mean, how great are tacos, right?
  24. Hi! Yes - though it would seem we do not have a forum for it yet. I see you found our discord, too, which is good because I believe for the ESO chapter/cohort for now we're trying out not having a chapter forum - just discord. I think Simone may want to connect with you first prior, but traditionally new folks post an introduction thread here telling us a bit about them. You can check out mine or others here in this forum to get an idea of what those look like if you want. If you have any questions, feel free to speak up in the discord lobby (it should be public access) and I believe you'll get a fast response.
  25. Will there continue to be a place on the forum for that discussion, or will this be handled impersonally where the recruit's sponsor becomes the Point of Contact for kudos as well as concerns? Overall, I think the delegation & streamlining will definitely assist in growing around new games and that is important!
