EVE Blog Banter #14: A beginning is a very delicate time...
Welcome to the fourteenth installment of the EVE Blog Banter, the monthly EVE Online blogging extravaganza created by none other than me, CrazyKinux. The EVE Blog Banter involves an enthusiastic group of gaming bloggers, a common topic within the realm of EVE Online, and a week to post articles pertaining to the said topic. The resulting articles can either be short or quite extensive, either funny or dead serious, but are always a great fun to read! Any questions about the EVE Blog Banter should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out other EVE Blog Banter articles at the bottom of this post!
The first banter of 2010 comes to us from the EVE Blog Father, in which I ask the following: As we begin another year in New Eden, ask yourselves "What Now?" What will I attempt next? What haven't I done so far in EVE? Was it out fear, funds, or knowledge? Have I always wanted to start my own corporation, but have never dared doing so? Is there a fledging mercenary waiting to come out of its shell? Or maybe an Industrialist? What steps and objectives will I set myself to accomplish in order to reach my ultimate goal for this year? EVE is what you make of it. So, what is it going to be for you?
So I am a big follower of the Low-Sec/PVP bloggers of EvE. I have read all thier replies to this and have decided that I myself would like to reply to it.
I have 5 different characters over 2 accounts, to answer this question the easiest way I will tell you what my plan is for the coming months for each character individualy.
Mail Lite is first. As my Low Sec pirate toon his main skills are PVP based. By the end of 2010 I would like this character to be flying a T2 fitted Brutix for normal Gatecamps and smaller engagements. I am also planning to have him skilled up for flying a Megathron for larger fleet engagements.
After this I would like to be able to fly the Phobos and Ishtar. Whether or not I will actually fly them in combat on a regular basis is up for debate.
Hannibal Vexor is currently a mission runner with Amarr and has access to low level 3 missions. This character is also skilled up MAJORLY for exploration. I am planning to use this character for exploration and WH's once I have him skilled him up for the T3 cruiser, the Legion. As always I am planning to have the support skills up to a reasonable level before I fly the ship itself. I am going on my CEO's fit as a basic guidline for what I want to fly. More on this later.
I will be buying the modules slowley over the next few months.
Theknownkillu is an industry and mining toon. Apart from the obvious mining and stuff I am planning to train this character into an Orca and to fly a Charon for TGA logistics over the next year. At the moment I have a Charon on lone from a collegue in TWR, but will be trying to but my own shortly.
Gateway1 is a cyno alt, however he can fly a Itty MK III and also has a number of skills in marketing and retail. I am thinking of turning this char into a market player for an extra income.
Heavy Mail is a basic hauler alt and will be training into another basic cyno alt, just for logistical support.
These are my main goals for the next year.
Each are easily reachable and the main contraint to the goals I have set is the ISK involved. However I am hoping to widen my ISK making by specialising each character into a specific job role and utilising them as and when they are useful.
On a personal note I am aslo hoping to get this blog of the ground. I will be reporting events with The Guristas Alliance, working on the back stories for my characters, posting guides and hints for people wanting to follow the life of a low sec pirate and telling you of my loses and kills over the next year.
Thanks for reading!
