[OOC] Gifts For Yak

Posted in OOC on December 9, 2009 by yakshamash

I know I stated earlier in this blog that it will be mostly fiction oriented, don’t let all these OOC posts make you think other, the fact of the matter is, I just dont have time for fiction. That is until Friday(my last exam)! Class is over and I’m on Christmas break for a month!  A month with nothing to do but work from home.  That might get boring, oh wait, I should play lots, and lots of EVE!  Better yet, I should get 1.2 and 1.3 all polished up and published!  I thought the first Christmas gift I would get would be nice long break, it wasn’t…  My first gift came from none other than Roc Wieler . I won his Christmas song advent challenge(for day 7) and received a nice digital download of his BIO album.  Kickass to say the least. For those of you who want to hear the Christmas song I made to win the contest, you may have to wait until I can upgrade my wordpress account(I’m considering hosting off my own apache server,  pay for data?, pfft…).   Or you can just leave your email in a comment, and I will get it on its way through the inter-tubes.

[OOC] About My Corp/ Recruitment

Posted in OOC on December 7, 2009 by yakshamash

Now that my first final of the week is wrapped up, I need some relaxation time for a few hours, before I start cramming calculus into the parts of my brain that at one time were my social skills.  Time to play some EVE, or better yet, write about it. So I figured I would tell you all a bit about my corp and alliance, seeing as you probably have never herd of them.

Two years ago when I was just a little baby capsuleer, I was offered a helping hand by a character named Quadrapodacone.  Two years later I’m still in his corp, and now a director. Royal Assassins Guild is our name, and we formed the alliance Imperial Crimson legion about six months back.  Were still small, but we are growing, all of the corps in the alliance plan on focusing heavily on recruitment over the next few months.  So on the off chance you might be interested in joining RAG, or including your corp in ICL, here is a rundown of our operations.  We mainly operate in lowsec in the MOFA and LIELA regions.  We are NBSI and anti-pirate so we can get our pew pew on at will.  RAG is focused mainly on PVP and PVE but some of our pilots do dabble into industry, and for several months we had a fairly successful wormhole operation.  If you are a indy pilot check out our sister corp Royal Industrial Guild.  Obviously, they focus more on industry. We look more for what the person has to bring as a person and are less focused on how many skill points you have.  That being said, we do offer training for rookie pilots.  This is the corp where I learned everything I know.  As for the future, our long term goal is to chisel out a nice little spot in 0.0 to call home. But for now were focusing on recruitment and training.

So if this seems to suit you join ICL-Public or shoot me(yakshamash) or quadrapodacone a email or private chat in game, or leave a comment on this post.

[OOC] Happenings

Posted in OOC with tags , , , , , on December 7, 2009 by yakshamash

Some awsome things have been happening lately, and some not so awesome.
On the not so awesome side finals week is underway, and for a computer science student that means a week of zero sleep, many, many pots of coffee, and finger nails that are much shorter than usual.
Enough on that, time for some awesome!  First of all I just got a new position in my Corp(Royal Assassins Guild), Executive Mercenery Operations Officer, so now i’m right under my CEO! Second, I finally broke down and bought my dream mission ship, the apocalipse navy issue, my first faction ship and it’s everything I ever wanted. Last but not least I am now an official eve blogger! I just got the notice from CK and it’s really cool to see this URL in his posts on my Jesus phone via Capsuleer.
Well that’s about all for now, more after this week of hell is over, part 1.2 should be coming out soon.  Now all I need to do is figure out how a 5 stage pipeline effects the CPI of a single core processer, assuming no data hazards have occured…

[OOC] A Bit About Myself And This Blog

Posted in OOC with tags , , , , , , , on November 20, 2009 by yakshamash

I assume if you are reading this you may want to know something about me, and if you don’t, I’m going to tell you anyways.  I have been playing eve for almost two years, and I can honestly say it truly is a hobby for me.  I am an executive officer of a relatively small and mellow corp, which is part of a relatively small and mellow alliance.  We are currently in the process of recruiting and redirecting the way we operate.
In real life I am a theoretical computer science major at Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina.  I love my major and the field I am heading into, despite the fact that it robs me of sleep, social interaction, and EVE time.  I currently work as a web designer toiling away with HTML and PHP in Dreamweaver, while simultaneously designing the front end visuals in Photoshop and Illustrator.  Obviously in the next few weeks this blog will be getting a significant visual boost.  I don’t plan to be in web design for long, I will soon be moving towards software engineering and plan to break into the gaming industry, albeit an uphill battle.  Other than eve, work, and school, I spend my spare time surfing, boozing, and watching American football.

I plan to keep this blog mostly fiction oriented, but how it evolves may be another story.  I have the first section of my first story posted, and plan to have several installments.  If you have any suggestions or comments, please leave them, I welcome all statements, no matter what they say.

Just in case you wanted to know a bit about the man behind the story’s…

“Crack… silence,” Followed by the usual ringing, I have died, and once again begin the process of reincarnation.  This is the period I hate, the blackness, when my mind has transferred to my new body, but my senses are still to come to me.  I see nothing; hear nothing, feel nothing and all I look forward to is the blinding light that awaits me.  That bright overhead light, the first thing I see with fresh eyes, but for now everything is dark.  For now I have no body, I’m pure consciousness floating in oblivion; all I can do in this state is think.  I think this is taking too long.
Is this taking too long? Can I perceive time without a body? Maybe this is normal, I’m ok.  Shit, Maybe I’m dead. No that can’t be, death will either be absolutely nothing or something significant, not this. Why is this taking so long? I need to calm down, I’m panicking, everything is fine.  Shit, why haven’t I ever panicked before?  I’ve transferred clones hundreds of times, I’ve never panicked before, something is defiantly wrong, something is very, very, wait… what’s that?  I could have sworn I just saw a flicker of light.  Shit, there it is again.  Why isn’t it my blinding white light with the soft music and the duvolle employee’s warm smile?  Why is this light different? Why does it flicker every couple of seconds? Why is the flicker getting faster?  Why is it reddish orange? It looks almost like my…  Oh god… I’m still in my pod.

This can’t be, I heard my hull start to crack, I saw the bright flash of my own pod being destroyed, how can I still be alive.  Thank God the neocom is onlining, I’ve heard horror stories of pilots floating through space, slowly rotting in the darkness of a disabled pod.  It’s not the white light I wanted, but at least it’s light.  How was I not killed, this war, this bloody fucking war has killed me more times than I can count, why did it not kill me this time? Neocom online, I immediately relay for a full systems check, nothing, Aura must still be onlining.  I saw the flash, the fire from the oxygen leaking from my hull, I should be dead, I saw the fiery orange… shit, it wasn’t orange. “Aura fully online” calmly resonated throughout my brain, I immediately return the statement with a request for a full systems check.  “Shield holding at one hundred percent,” excellent, “Armor critical at zero percent,” shit “Hull critical at five percent,” I should be dead.  I request my current location, to be immediately smacked down by a definite “unknown,” shit, not good. I request nearest location, and once again, aura replied “unknown.”   How did I get here, oh god, where in the fuck is here…
