Losses, Killboards, and Medals

So I believe I am the worst corp Member we have. In all honestly I lose ships to stupid shit, and have terrible ISK efficiency, even though I do try and PVP. Compared to some of our carebears, I’m not that bad, but compared to everyone else who has actually gotten in fights, I am the worst. I embrace it, lost my ratting Vexor Navy Issue to a Loki, Tengu tag team the other day.  The worst part, they didn’t even do the most damage, the rat did. I think if I had been against the Loki only, I might have been okay, I got him into armor fairly quickly. Anyway here’s the hilarious Killmail and my beautiful Killboard.

On top of it all I was talking to the CEO of our Corporation, Cinnamon ToastCrunch, and I suggested that in order to add some fun to our corp and other silly things we can do we hand out awards to people for the best KB of the month, or best Killing Blow of the month. It could add some spark to our corp and some friendly competition, which as everyone knows, increases comraderie and friendship.

Here, is what I received for the fruits of my labors.

Overall, I would say its quite a productive day, and our leadership is not at all bored. 🙂

Live long, and don’t let KB’s stop you from having fun.

Much Needed Megacyte!

Today one of our corpmates scanned down a C2 wormhole. So we decided to delve in and mine Arkonor until we stripped the belt. We thought, the only reasonable way to do this is to bring procurers and have a hauler move the ore back.  Sure enough 4 procurers and a Miasmos later, and we have a sweet little mining operation happening. Many of the members need the megacyte for some more advanced modules and ships.

The Arkonor that was mined was amazing. I myself got a little over 1k Arkonor. Which isnt amazing. But I gave my proc to someone else while I continued to run logistics. It was a fun time. The only crappy part was our operation was untimely ended by a Russian in a stealth bomber. We all got away safe but that was it for wormhole mining for the night.

Sacrifice to the Space Gods

 

 

 

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.

Sacrifice

 

As always, fly safe, D-scan every 20 seconds or get blapped!

Of Elections and Space Popes

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!

Mining in a Wormhole

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.

First time ever exploring a Wormhole!

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.

Wormhole Space is Beautiful

 

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.

 

See you all really soon!

Blueprint Stockpiling

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.

Lots of 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.

How the order form works.
A look at our order form.

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!

Thanks,

Manufacturing for War

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.
