Hoist the Colors!

In this, plenty and satiety, pleasure and ease, liberty and power; and who would not balance creditor on this side, when all the hazard that is run for it, at worst is only a sour look or two at choking?
No, a merry life and a short one shall be my motto.

So, despite spending my first 6 months of PvP as a pirate, I eventually decided to take a different road. After about 3 months of meandering around and getting nothing done... I finally found it. I joined a Mercenary corp and boy was that a trip. Now, I've gained a lot from my stay with Noir., but I gained a lot in my stay with The Bastards as well. I've looked back at the last year, and realized one thing for certain:

I need to get back to my roots.

And so I put in a two weeks notice, and started making plans. Oddly enough, Mynxee was leaving at the same time, and I had her evacuate my assets from 0.0 along with her own. Her and I will be going in different directions, but in the same general one.

I'm going to go into full time piracy again. I have had a Rifter alt trained up for almost a year now, and he's been sitting there doing nothing. I will still use Hallan for PvP, but in a much more careful way and likely with a higher security status, while my "other persona" will be free to pirate like I used to.

To start with, I'll be alone. But once I've formed the corporation, I'll be recruiting. Hopefully it's a fun ride, but it'll be bumpy. We'll see where it takes me.


  1. Good Luck! I hope you have lots of fun and let the yarr run free :)

  2. Very nice!
    Been hoping to see something along these lines on your blog for a time now :)

  3. Hope to see you around soon then :-) Nice to see your going back to your roots. Was a long time sincebothered with 0.0 and can say that i hounestly dont miss it a bit. Having to much fun making low sec un-safe :-) Maybe we will cross path soon to ;-)

  4. Welcome back to the yarr. If your rifter alt needs some action, you know where to come to..

  5. Good luck's impossible to resist the yarr forever once it's in your blood.
