Ahh, a new “home”

I had decided last night to move toward an area I had never been before, in an attempt to find less ninja-aware mission runners, etc. So, after I arrived in this system, I began scanning.

There were a few runners, and my 8 probe method seems to work very well at pinning them down. Especially with the advent of “alt+drag moves them all properly” and the scaling methods.

Then my dog decided to chase a fucking skunk and I had to break to fix that. I think, today, I still stink. Oh well.

Anyway – I stole a bunch of loot, but no shooters, at least not in this system. While tooling around, I discovered a jetcan between a Hulk and an Iteron. It was obvious that this was a main/alt combination.

Naturally, I stole from the can and opened a conversation with the player. The can was named “Don’t do that again.” The conversation was short, and so he sent me an email. I followed up with an offering for the wonderful services Suddenly Ninjas brings to other regions across New Eden.

Below is my conversation with him and the small “token” amount sent of only 150,000 ISK was simply because I didn’t feel like putting any work into getting 15 million, etc. My intent was to offer him employment into Suddenly Ninjas – with the usual membership application fees, of course. (Which, for anyone reading is 25 million. Payable to any member of SN.)

Keep in mind, my spam surcharge is set to a value different than the default value – so I’m fleecing him for a little more with each email I can keep him sending back to me. His was still set to the default. It’s a little annoyance I like to keep in there sometimes. The thread is proper if you read from top-down, I’ve reversed it from the usual way it appears.

You’re very polite for someone looting cans. Are you a scammer? A
pirate? Or just going around making friends? I don’t know eve too well
to guess :D

No worries. I provide a service, along with the rest of my
corporation. Some consider it “protection”, others really can’t label
it. Such that what we provide is simply a license to operate via those
plain cargo containers (jet cans) and assurance that you are free to
operate as many as you desire, via your hulk, while mining a belt. No
theft will occur, from my corporation or any other in the system as
well. The proof in this is the killboard statistics we offer as backup
and show of our “muscle”.

So, any time you wish to purchase a license – send me a notice and the
sum of 150,000 ISK for the day, or 15,000,000 for a quarter (4 months)
and I will be happy to provide you with receipt.

Good luck to you in your operation!

How do I pay you? I think it’s silly, but I’ll pay for today just
because it makes me smile.

Wonderful news! You can pay me via right clicking on my name and
clicking on “give money”. Your price today is that same 150,000 ISK. I
do believe we offer monthly contracts, but I’ll have to check with my
supervisor. Please reference client id: 4435.

Thank you!

  1. Hahaha, lots of lolz. GJ! o7

  2. You do realize that CSPA charges just go down the drain and disappear into nothingness, right? From what you said, ‘fleecing him’, it gives me the impression that you thought you were getting paid the isk for the CSPA charge amount.
