I've always wanted an orca. Just for moving stuff around. And for thieving ice. So I trained up for it.
Yesterday, I got my wish. I Foud a war tareget (corp recently bailed on BDEAL) playing nursemaid to a binch of mackinaws.
This would not do...Fortunately he was at 0 to the ice belt....scram the thing and open a conversation. I don't get a reply until I actually sicc drones on him tho.
Zedrik Cayne > You eject..that pod stays intact.
Drenwulf Crendraven > say what?
Drenwulf Crendraven > doint understand
Zedrik Cayne > Eject.
Zedrik Cayne > Or I squash the pod once you are dead.
Zedrik Cayne > Hope you don't have any expensive implants.
Drenwulf Crendraven > any way to negotiate>
Zedrik Cayne > You are at half shield.
Zedrik Cayne > I suggest you hurry.
And...wonder of wonders...he ejects. I leave the pod alone, he has just put 500 mil in my pocket...oops...almost 600 mil, it is rigged) *yay* Board ship...scoop my arbitrator..Crap..stuff in the cargohold that is not ammo. Let's just get the prize home. (Ever more important since the session timer changes...swapping ships takes much much less time)
Zedrik Cayne > Warp off.
Zedrik Cayne > Have a nice day.
Zedrik Cayne > Thank you very much.
There's already ice in the hold...a full can next to it. Not a bad haul for the day.
So, the war so far has been isk well spent. Faction cruiser blueprint and an orca. Couple lessons for me in how nullsec works, and a couple lessons for carebears in untanked haulers.
