Just so you're aware begging is not allowed on these forums...

However, when you are ingame click on the speech bubble in the chat window and type in 'the angel project' (minus the ' marks)
Sindel might be able to help you.

Quoted from Doc Fury: "Concerned citizens: Doc seldom plays EVE on the weekends during spring and summer, so you will always be on your own for a couple days a week. Doc spends that time collecting kittens for the on-going sacrifices, engaging in reckless outdoor activities, and speaking in the 3rd person."

Welcome and good luck! Smile

Since you're completely new then I've advise simply playing through the tutorials to begin with. They'll help you get a feel for everything, give you some starting items and ISK.

Once you've found your feet then maybe poke around to find a good corporation to join. They'll likely help you with all of those aspects too.

Edit: I see you've found a corp. They should be your first port of call for support if they're worth their salt Blink

Begging for ISK/items here is not allowed.

And in general people frown upon those who do and you will likely be target of mocking more then being helped.

Ah, I would say that´s usually because people tend to include rage in some form, this is of course an absolute no-go and leads to being mocked.
But on the other hand I have read some rousing sob stories in my time as well. Just make sure you get the right mix of helplessness and determination, people like that.

Edit: Also don´t beg directly, people hate that. Just tell of your tragic story and ask for advise, the ISK will flow on its own...

Start over using someones buddy invitation link. Some of them offer you starting money and even equipment just for using their link. More if you upgrade your account later. So you can end up with several hundreds of milions of ISK as the start up money.

You may be new but this is a bad start. Asking for advice is good, asking for items is bad. Welcome to EvE hope you get far, so we can blow you up!

Run the tutorial missions. These should net you some ISK, Skillbooks and other stuff.

Also, Begging is bad.... will likely get you blown up.
