“Eilyin knows your tools of war. Don’t expect another one when you lose it.” The guard with the scarred face gave her a shove, and she made the rest of the walk herself. She had no illusions about the reason for this sudden ‘generosity’. A brand new ship... But what’s with this awful fit they gave me? At least they have the decency to replace my faction guns... Could I use them inside the hangar? No, no doubt they have 1600’s trained on me right now. I think I’ve had enough of this place. She coaxed the ship out of the hangar as fast as she could manage.

Single Target in-bound. I had dropped out of warp less than fifteen seconds ago and already a target! Rifter class frigate. Thought spans in all directions, as my ship fires all engines, leans into a tight orbit, slips into partial warp with the Micro Warp Drive, and the concentration shifts to locking the target. All modules stand ready as my sensors pinpoint their target. I can feel my mouth water, I have to force I swallow.
Lock. A brief moment everything dims as all modules light off. Warp Scrambler, Statis Webifier, and Four Nosferatu modules. Almost as quickly, energy surges back in to the capacitors, bleeding the target dry.
The Drones, already armed, spill from their hiding place, blazing towards the target. Their first combined volley tears away the Rifter shields. No big accomplishment there, but when the second and third sear and char their way through the Rifterâ€™s armor and into his hull I giggle. I command a ceasefire to the drones.
I hail my target. Two Hundred Thousand ISK. Short and sweet. I'm nervous at this point, I'd rather not become someone else's kill. This is taking too long. I start counting off over comms.
... A reply. "1 second"
One Decimal Five.
One and One Third.
One Decimal One.
Another message, begging "I'm a new pilot"
The drones eagerly jump to life. Their first volley ignore what little shield recharge had occurred in the interval. Pieces of the Rifter go spewing in all direction as that one lucky round ruptures the Fusion Core.
The Escape Pod flies past my Thorax, already initiated into Warp. That's fine. There will be others.
I hit Warp again; I spent too long in that belt. Next time I'll know not to wait so long. After a few belts my mind wanders back to the plasma cloud burning freely from my last target. What beauty is to be found in destruction!
Proximity alert! My warp drive had already aligned to the next belt. Scanners already cleared their cache. What was that?
I stop in this belt and fire up the MWD. I want some distance between me and the opponent. Local comms start to chatter. I'm being hunted! The thrill sparks again. A whole new rush, not of the kill, but of the chase.
I let my eagerness gets the best of me. I allow my position to slip over comms, and within seconds a Rupture class cruiser warps in. With over 243km between us, I realize that I am still in control of this fight. Just then, some Angel Militia Pirate's warp in to investigate. My opponent quickly dispatches them. In fact, so quick that my surprise attack doesn't succeed. I couldn't align that fast.
The same dance begins. Lock. All systems initiate. Drones released. I hear the larger Auto Cannons of my opponent penetrating my shielding, tearing into my armor. Enemy Drones sending their Lasers into my hull, separating steel from structure. I increase orbit and try firing some Smart Bombs that I had fitted to shake the drones, open distance to prevent Auto Cannon damage, but it was too late. Modules and main systems alike were shutting down. Damage controls had failed and most of the ship had de-pressurized. Now I watch from my escape Pod as my Fusion Core erupts. I chuckle, as the odd tingle the Pod has in its warp shudders through me, and I make a clean getaway back home.
Once at a safe distance I pull my attacker up on comms. I thank him, now I know what to be cautious for, I have learned. One more lesson, one more step towards my destiny.
I return to station and browse the markets for my next combat ship. I run a few simulations for Capacitor Efficiency, Shield and Armor Durability, and Weapon Damage Outputs.
But before I have a chance to make any purchases, other pilots from my corporation send me a fleet invite. We have a war target trying to make his way towards Rens.
I ponder a moment. Haste requires a ship already fitted, in hangar, and ready to fly. I put out the alert, scramble my Jaguar for immediate departure!
The Hunt Is On!

I did meet up with a startup pirate corp, and went so far, far away to a system called "Jan" The galaxy was a lot bigger than I had imagined. Here I found out two things. One: T2 fittings and ships beat T1. And Two: I had no way to pay for or fly such things.
So my course was this- I make a fortune and pay for these things, and train constantly as hard as I could until I was the best! I invested in Learning Skills so I could train harder and faster than I supposed any other pilot could, and researched fitting schemes and money making ventures....
... I woke up. A year and a half later, there were foreign objects in the POD fluid, and Iâ€™m still aching from detox. I don't know where I am, no familiar stars are in view. I had been piloting the same ship class I had fantasized about, only it's scatted remains were in orbit with me around an unfamiliar moon. I rebooted my Navigation system and found that I was 44 jumps outside of any CONCORD presence. What I had been doing out here was still baffling me. I checked my comm systems, most of the data there was either encrypted or corrupted. A few sparse messages informed me that I had joined up with an alliance and then had been removed. My assets had been removed from my hangar and I was wanted. Infamy it seemed was not something I enjoyed. I'm not sure how I had escaped the same wrath the debris of my once proud ship had endured. That thought alone got my heart racing. Panic sobered me the rest of the way up and I stressed my ship systems in getting "home". I few close calls but thankfully my brain still knew how to fly this thing better than I ever remembered. I had dozens of "Books" downloaded that I cannot remember fully to this day, but I always seem to come up with the answer.
Lost and confused, I was accepted into a corporation to help with their industry concern. Oddly, I had also been trained in that too, although it bores me to no end.
Another year has passed. I have enjoyed the company of numerous pilots and been hired into a few corporations since. I finally have been accepted back into society and even get jobs from an agent or two from Brutor Tribe. I'm back in my homeland and it feels great...
The local channel fires up. A Pilot was upset that no one would "take his can" Producing such a challenge was not too smart, someone might take him up on it. I jump into my trusty Rifter. I open his can. Flagged for combat, his friends uncloak and I barely get my pod back into station. He laughs and informs me that if he had lost to a Rifter he would have quit flying.
Anger! Just like in those first long months. I have not felt this way in years. Only today, I have a generous account, the skill to fly ships of any race, and well, and the support of numerous other pilots.
I place a "Buy Order" on the markets for a Thorax. They have a deadly potential, and I have been researching other ships for more capabilities...
I will have my fleet, I will have my revenge. 3

Today, I was out hunting in E## when I came across this chap in a belt: Akaya Kalari. He got out fast, before I could lock him but he we struck up a conversation and chatted for the next hour or so. The prey was thin today as G### was full of other pirates and meanies.

After a spectacular gank of a very nasty NOS/blaster/ECM Domi, plus a few other ambushes, Kiss546 rapidly came apart and eventually disbanded. It was a short and boring war, but it ended with a clear victory.
Fast forward to today. UCAM has mutual positive standings with The Makhai, Hydra, Knight Raven and Pure alliances. This lets us travel through and play around in Vale of the Silent. I've been having a lot of fun recently killing people who don't belong there.
Last night, someone spotted a former member of Kiss546 in Vale, a character named True Forces. I remembered the name as a former war target and looked up the system where he was reported. It was only two jumps away. I decloaked my Nemesis stealth bomber and flew straight there.
After jumping in and seeing that he still was in local, I warped to a safe spot, recloaked and started scanning. It didn't take long to see that he was in the asteroid belt around Planet VII. I also saw that I had a problem - True Forces was flying a Drake, a ship that I probably could not kill with just a Nemesis.
There was just the two of us in local, so I convoed a Hydra pilot that was in the system I had just left. After I explained the situation, he started moving toward the system. He also, apparently, called for more backup. Several Hydra pilots showed up a few minutes later. Once they were settled on the gate one jump away, it was time for me to tackle the Drake.
I warped into the belt. Amazingly, although I'd been in local for five minutes, this guy had continued to sit there ratting, not 20 kilometers from the warp-to-zero point in the belt. Unfortunately, either he was aligned at full speed or I'm a noob that fails at targeting. He managed to warp out before I could tackle him in a sensor-boosted frigate. Bleah.
As the rest of the gang jumped into the system, I started scanning again. I picked him up near Planet IV and warped. He wasn't there. I scanned again and found him in the planet's asteroid belt. However, he warped out just as I arrived. This time, he had gone to a gate and jumped out of the system. The gang followed.
He led us on a merry chase through the next system and narrowly avoided three tackles. Finally, he warped to another stargate and jumped out again. Unfortunately for him, someone had gotten there ahead of him.
By the time I got into the next system, four Hydra pilots had him pinned down. It was all over with except for the pretty explosions.
[2007.08.01 06:12:18] (combat) Your Caldari Navy Cataclysm Cruise Missile hits true forces [SIZLE](Drake), doing 332.5 damage.
He managed to escape back to empire with his pod, but his T2-fitted Drake was history.
The war against macros, isk farmers, isk sellers, chat channel isk spammers and anyone that would protect any of them continues, whether Concord sanctions it or not...

Well, not a fish, a Battleship actually. And damn it was close. Would have been my first PVP Battleship kill...would have...could have...should have, but the Fates stepped in and denied me my prize.
I just recently issued my first war dec against a small corp I had a run-in or two with. More on that later hopefully.
They had moved their headquarters several jumps to the south, luckily I was able to track them down fairly easily. I spent a few days getting the lay of the land and droping a few useful bookmarks in this and neighboring systems. But, after a few days of not even seeing one of their members online I decided to see if I could stir up some extracurricular fun.
I check a few belts, nothing going on...then I see her. A nice, new Mega mining away at some Kernite. Now, something about a BS mining in high sec Empire that just turns my stomach. I'm in my T-Rax, but I figured "what the hell". My belly is full of loot, so I head to the nearest station, unload, and then warp back to my new friend.
I burn it toward one of her cans, make the switch and head over to the other can. Just as I get there 5 T2 medium drones pour out of the Mega, she locks and sends them after me. I return the favor and send my Hammerhead II's at her. I trust in my drone skills, so I leave them to the ship as I begin webbing and blasting her drones. One by one they go pop. I have her locked down, but as her shields and armor begin to drop, she starts to run.
I keep right behind her with my scram as she tries to get out of range, everything's going as planned, but then I notice that she's starting to get some distance on me. I should have easily kept pace, suddenly she's out of scram and webber range. I expect her to warp off at any second, but she doesn't so my drones keep chewing on her armor and then hull.
At this point she's way out of range of my ship and I finally realize that I'd run straight into her second jetcan and I was helplessly bouncing off. By the time I corrected the situation she had realized she was no longer scramed and warped off. Before she left the belt I saw she was almost totally in the red and only had a tiny bit of hull left. If she had stayed another few seconds she would have been toast. Of course, had I had the scram on her, she would have been forced to stay a few more seconds.
I say my curses and pull in my drones. I had poped 4 of her drones, so I finished off the 5th and then went to blow up her ore in case she or someone else came back. Just as I was scooping out her second jetcan a signal appeared on my overview.
She was back, but without the badly damaged Mega...she was in a Hyperion. Needless to say, with my shields still down at a minimum and with the only ammo I had left loaded into my turrets, I decided this fight would not end well. I pulled in the drones I had destroying the ore and made a quick exit.
I offered her a good fight in local and congrats on surpsing me with the Hyper. I got no response so I headed to a station to wait down the timer. After a few minutes I head back to the belt to find her standing guard over the ore as a friend hauled it away. We had a little banter back in forth in local then she warped off to a station.
I still didn't have any war targets online so I logged for the night. It was a while before I fell asleep though...I kept thinking about how close I was to that kill. I could almost taste the burning wreckage. I realize now that I should have thrown balls to the wall and tackled the Hyperion once my shield were back up, but live and learn.
I'm sure there will be a next time. Plus now I know what my ship and skills can do in a real fight.
So, I'm on last night in the same neighborhood where I almost got the Mega. Still no war targets on, but my "friend" is. I hop through a few systems and eventually pass her at a gate. She pipes up in local warning the 4 others present that I was a can flipper/ore thief and to be wary of me. Of course, no one is mining anyway, plus this area of space is known for it's "roque" elements so I don't think anyone cared about little ole' me.
I do my thing and eventually run across my "friend" in a belt in her Hyperion. She warps to another belt, I follow, she warps to another belt, I follow...then I realize she's rat hunting NPC frigates in her Hyperion! That's almost worse then mining in high sec Empire in her Mega.
I steal the loot from one or her wrecks and then set a tight orbit. We start to banter and I make up my mind that no matter how long it takes, someday I'm going to end up with a killmail with her name as victim.
Needless to say, despite my theft and my efforts to pressure her to engage my T-Rax, she doesn't. She said I was "just a speck and not worth her time", which translates into "I'm not sure if my Hyperion would be able to take your T-Rax and I'm affraid to try." So, after 20 mintues or so, I gave up for the night and logged...I have a feeling playing with my new "friend" is going to be fun.

I found a few high sec systems crawling with macro miners. I spent several days hauling away millions in their ore, but as is the case with most macro's, they wouldn't engage. They just kept mining or moved on. I did manage to collect 10 medium drones from them when something must have happened to the computer on their end and several character's went logoffski, leaving their poor drones all cold and alone in the belts. Of course it was my duty to give them a new home in my safe, warm hanger.
Anyway, things were slow but I was making a couple million ISK for about 10-15 minutes of hauling, not too bad. I got bored pretty quick though and decided to give it a rest as to not scare them away from the area. I started roaming a strip of about 10 systems in my T-Rax looking for targets, but nothing really presented itself. I did find some people jetcan mining, but no one thought their ore or honor was worth engaging over, so I'd haul some of their ore away, but mainly I'd just put it into my can and when it was obvious they weren't going to do anything about it, I'd just blow it up.
I did find a few guys who taught me some valuable lessons in the art of ore switching/stealing. In my travels I had a few guys steal "my" ore back after I warped out and I missed them back to a station. I couldn't believe how pissed I got after "my" ore was stolen. I learned that if I don't have a hauler in the system, I'm not going to take the ore with me, so I need to either blow it up in their faces or set a good trap for them. I'm still working on this, but the lessons I learned from those few guys, really helped me a lot. Plus I've marked them down in my address book as future targets. A few I'm even considering for my first war dec. I'll keep you posted on that.
All of this brings me to early this morning.

So I took a little break from pirating to get some money. I was doing missions....eww. Me and my friend ended up starting a corp. Bla bla bla. It was going well, but I decided I couldn't pirate for a while. We had quite a few newer players, and if we got wardecc'd, it wouldn't be good for them.
So anyway, I'm getting totally fed up with missions, so I took out a rifter to rat.
So I'm ratting. Same ol' same ol'. Orbit at 10km, turn on my SBII, and my guns. Then I chat.
After while, I switch rats.
Then, someone with low sec status warps in on me. My heart starts pumping harder and harder as he locks me. I'm back in business.

Having had a busy day I was looking forward to hoping onto eve and blowing a few things up with the guys in my alliance. I logged in to discover them about 6-7 jumps from my current system. I logged into our vent coms, said my hello's and asked what everyone was up to. Apparently they were in the djimame system building up to go protect a POS belonging to one of our alliance members ally of old.
The enemy was the Royal Hiigaran Navy, a corp I had not heard of before. I set my destination and proceded to make my jumps into the apropriate system. Upon getting there, we immediatly jumped to angur, then moved on to the POS. On our approach we all bounched off the shields, whoops forgot to input the password. After we all had put in the PW to enter the shields we warped back in and went about telling them what they could do to improve their defenses.
After sitting there for a while we started to get bored. Our commander sent me and my little enyo out to scout the enemy ships that were in system. After checking all the stations and having deemed that they were not docked, I narrowed them down in an SS near the sun. After reporting my findings our commander, darkside101, (whom I will refer to as dark from now on) ordered me to scout the gates on both sides, after scouting the third gate and finding more allies on the other side. I reported that nothing was to be found of the enemy forces.

I was in systems looking for war targets, being kinda bored I ran into a dead end system. Getting ready to turn around and go out, I hit my scanner on a whim. What came up kinda surprised me, I had 2 rokh, and a retriever on scans. All mining. Well not one to pass anything up, I decided to hit the retriever because of the mineral output I might get(yes also because it was the easier target, call me a coward I dont care ).
I warp in and see the retriever mining (go figure) and MWD over to his can(s). I bump off one of them and rebound into the miner. Fixing myself I head back to the can, I take a look inside and what do I see? Not much. Only a little bit of veld with some plag. I take a look at the other one, and I start to drool. This can is 1/4 full of kernite.......mmm delicious kernite, plus some other ore. I procede to flip the first one and its completely full brother. The miner does nothing at first, then turns and warps off. "Oh well" I thought, free ore.
I go get my iteron, and began the ore hauling process. While i was doing this a prophecy warped in and started approaching the cans full of "my" ore. Completely aware what he was about to do, I warped to the station where I had put my thorax and returned to find him blinking red. I started my orbit and launched my drones. Once I was all set up into my orbit, I locked and opened up with my blasters, along with the nos drones and web/scram. He wasnt going anywhere.
As I began to slowly eat through his shields, I realized I was in for a long fight. My blasters did their job though along with my 5 light t2 drones (would have had mediums, but I was out looking for war inties) He starts hitting me with the pew pew, and some missiles. The lasers didnt really do anything but those missiles ate through my shields pretty quick.
Once into my armor though thats where he stopped, he didnt have the dps to break into my tank. I slowly ate at this guy through his shields, then into his armor, then finally into structure. Man this was taking forever, I shut off my repper as he was half structure, to preserve my dwindling cap power. He slowly munched into my armor, but not enough to have me worry. Finally I saw the explosion that I had been waiting for all this time, and it was beautiful. Looking into the wreck I found a couple T1 items that were at least worth the battle. So total, I made between 8-10 mil from this fight including the sellage of all that ore. Thinking back I should have ransomed him, but unfortunatly when I get into a fight I lose it and dont think just act, call me insane if you will. Now the killmail because I know you love it. (names left out as per their request(I spoke with them later on to ask and apparently they were told to run from me because the guy I had killed was a "seasoned" pvper))
