Today our Space Pope decided to risk his holy life and his ship and travel from our previous home over 30 jumps away in a t1 hauler to move some old minerals we had left there. These minerals are crucial to our production line as we are currently running low on Pyerite and Mexallon since the heavier ores are harder to get a lot of and Plagioclase is not in our area. After making the 30 jumps safely to our base. He promptly went out ratting in his new destroyer, and got scrammed and killed by rats on a gate.
However, his ships destruction was not in vain, I managed to kill all the rats and in the name of the Space Pope sacrificed their lifeless bodies that float in space until the end of days. It was an interesting day to say the least. Mining and manufacturing continues as normal.
As always, fly safe, D-scan every 20 seconds or get blapped!
Today the corp decided to head towards a democratic system, in which every director position is run for, then elected by the masses. Cinnamon and I decided to run for a co-position. As Secretary’s of Industry we feel we would make decent leaders. So we drafted an epic campaign speech.
“Our manufacturing division will not stop, not for pirates, not for war, not for anything. We plan to reach the upper echelon of production efficiency, every ounce of sweat to be recorded, every mineral to pass through our hands to be used to its full extent. We aim to out produce even the Amarr and Caldari in their times of greatness. Everyone will hear and know that the Pioneers of New Eden are the hardest working and most disciplined corporation out there. We will not fail you. We stand before you as Co-Directors of the Manufacturing Division, humble, because without you we are nothing. Without the ore and minerals mined by your hard work, for which many of you have bled for, we would not be able to produce for you what this Empire needs most. It is not ships you need, nor guns, nor ammo, what you need most is Hope, and we provide that. We look into the future with desire and determination.
Vote Ryan and Cinnamon for Secretary’s of Industry and lead this Empire into a New Age!”
I mean, how do you not get inspired by that. That right there makes me want to make another account and join the division to be under their leadership. Seriously, we may be at a disadvantage but we sure as hell aren’t giving up. This Empire will thrive. We will prevail. Now that Gaius Toralen has accepted his position as the Space Pope of New Eden, we will go into battle with the gods covering our back. Leading our bullets straight and true, guiding our missiles, fueling our starships. With a goddamn Pope on our side, we will prevail! ALL HAIL SPACE POPE TORALEN!!!!
Fly safe, D-scan every 20 seconds, or risk being blapped!
This was my first trip ever into a wormhole, and it’s like nothing else. With the radars whacking out from the cosmic signatures the local chat is broken. It’s beautiful out here. Empty space, nobody around but me.
Having loads of fun, got lots of Arkonor and Bistot to fuel our megacyte needs. We should have enough now for most people to build pretty much anything they want, all we are running low on is the basic minerals. With less than 500k of any one mineral we won’t be able to mass produce anything much less mining ships like procurers and retrievers.
Other than that today wasn’t very interesting, still stockpiling Blueprints as well as organizing the Manufacturing Division. Hopefully, we get everything cleared up soon so that everybody in the division knows what’s going on and who is doing what, and when it needs to be done.
Marsus and I went out on a long trip 2 nights ago picking up as many of the blueprints from our spreadsheet that we could in 1 trip so that we wouldn’t have to go out again when we realized we needed something. Our Manufacturing Division Corp Hangar is quite filled now with module, weapon, ammo and ship BPO’s.
We started getting things really organized today. I sat down with my partner in crime Cinnamon ToastCrunch and we smoothed out some details. We figured out how we were going to handle large scale production and how we were going to be getting minerals and how people were going to pay for their ships. Alarn Davaham suggested that we as a corp start a mining division that could mine for us. They would be donating all the ore to us or at least partial amounts of it, to get free mining ships, should they not be stupid with them.
We came up with the Spreadsheet that had all our BPO’s and the price we were going to charge the Corp, 90% of Jita prices, as ISK means nothing to us.
I love making some spreadsheets while sitting in station.
We decided upon a nice order system, first come first serve. Everybody gets a free ship from our list of approved ships. The 1st one is free, the rest will be charged. Not a perfect system but it works for now.
Thanks for following along guys!
If you are in the corp, stay tuned for more news about what we are doing and where we are heading. If not, I appreciate the interest in Pioneers of New Eden!
Cinnamon ToastCrunch and I decided we were going to take over the preparations for PVP and PVE. We are now the heads of the Manufacturing Division for the Pioneers of New Eden. We have been mass producing as many cheap t1 mods as we can with our own stores of minerals but pretty soon we are going to need miners that are dedicated to giving us minerals so that we can keep up with production. Between the 2 of us we have about 9 slots for production. Which is currently fine, however we are going to need more manufacturers as our little settlement grows and people can start flying our ships into battle to protect us.
We started production of some t1 frigates and guns and ammo today and started building fits that everyone should be able to train into quickly to begin protection of our little slice of space!
We had another mining op, but it was between the manufacturers. So Cinnamon and I and a new guy who joined our operation recently all went out mining to start our stockpile of ore and minerals.
Here’s the whole group going nuts on some of the biggest asteroids we have ever seen.
A friend of mine and I decided to try and grab some null sec ore from a system about 8 jumps away from our home station. We were dodging gate camps, anomaly campers and the like all night. Shout out to Byrbeglin Alcantar for the solid scouting skills and finding us a decent site. We got the system we were aiming for, and we warped to 0 on the Ore Anomaly and I got a solid 6 Triclinic Bistot, this was our first time gathering a true null sec ore so we were excited. However, our excitement quickly ended when a Caracal and 2 Jaguars jumped in and we had to warp off, hence my measly 6 ore. However we had a good laugh and continued the search for a decent ore belt.
This was the 2nd Ore Anomaly we checked and decided it was a little to hot for our little ventures.
We decided to head back to the first Anom we found to see if the heat had cleared off. I got off a solid 2 cycles of my mining lasers before a venture started targeting me and a Caracal warped in, we warped off, hoping that we could come back and get at least enough ore for a full refine, otherwise that 18 Triclinic Bistot is useless. On our way out of Null we found a nice little Heretic dropping Bubbles on the gates. Unfortunately as I attempted to burn back to the gate he grabbed me and had me blapped in no time.
Luckily he didn’t get my pod so I able to warp off and grab a Velator, my rookie ship. That almost didn’t make the trip either though. As I started my warp to the next gate I was webbed by a local in null sec, I got away just in time.
As more and more settlers flock to our new little piece of space we are losing hauling ships to the many pirates that are taking advantage of our new empire. As we all struggle to build frigates and mine in our Ventures and create a new economy we have to constantly worry about the big boys coming out to play with their assault frigates and cruisers. We lost an industrial ship rich with BPO’s and necessary modules for the beginning of new life towards the start of this venture.
