Sloan Missions Part 1!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Agent Luther Sloan and I want to try something new. I am a pretty big fan of missions in Eve. (How could someone actually like missions?!?) I run lvl 4's with friends, blitz the epic arcs every 3 months, and generally enjoy trying out different ships and seeing what they can do. Well, as happens from time to time, I got a bit bored with my latest idea (blitzing lvl 4's in a non-T2 frigate - ridiculously fun), so I came up with an idea to make missions a bit more interesting.

I have died many times in the past, I've got corpses scattered throughout the universe. I'm like to retrieve these corpses if possible, but I'm far too lazy to do it myself. I'm looking for three corpses in particular right now, the rest can wait. Each of these bodies have been stuffed into a small secure container somewhere in New Eden; one is in high security space, one is in low security space, and one is in null security space. To make things a bit more interesting, each body is accompanied by a faction/deadspace module of some sort. I won't say what they are, but they will be worth your while to try and locate.

I enjoy seeing new sites, so each of my corpses is in a location which can be found in the most excellent EveTravel blog. To make things easier, I'll give a clue to help find each site, though some detective work will be required on your end. And to make things fun, each container is protected by a password, which will be the one-word answer to a trivia question. Without further ado, here are today's clues:

Sloan Mission #1 (Highsec):
This system contains a museum is dedicated to the civilization known as the Takmahl. I was unjustly killed near the second planet on my way to visit the museum

Sloan Mission #2 (Lowsec):
This ancient titan wreck would have required a crew of over 10,000 people when it was operational, which runs contrary to the lonely name it was given

Sloan Mission #3 (Nullsec):
This graveyard filled with countless Blood Raider wrecks is connected to Jamyl Saurm's resurgence, and just maybe, the enigmatic Sleepers.

Now for the fun part: password trivia! Each password is a single word, starting with a capital letter, the rest lowercase:

Today's Theme: Star Trek!

Mission #1: Data's evil twin
Mission #2: The main starship in the series in which the character I am named after appears
Mission #3: Voyager's favorite twins, the _________ sisters

If you are the first to the site and can open the container, the loot is yours. As a bonus, if the sites are found and the corpses contracted back to me within 24 hours of this post, each winner will receive an additional 20 million isk.

If people enjoy this, please let me know. I'd love to do more in the future, all I need is participants. Good luck and good hunting!

Rats don't pod players. Are you saying rats should pod players? Because I love the idea of rats podding players.

Also trekkies don't like us EVE pilots, I got several bans in STO for trying to play it like EVE.

Meh, I wanted to come up with a reason why my corpses were scattered all over New Eden. Reason being, my corpses are the only thing that 1) no one can buy on the market, 2) have no value so I can easily throw one in each container, and 3) provide proof that one of the containers was in fact found and looted.

Trekkies and Eve can get along just fine! I've been playing over two years now, have named all my characters after Star Trek characters, and I routinely name all my ships after ST ships. :-)

Ever notice how many people who suck at creative writing decide they'll use us as their "test" audience?
Or, could it be, they just don't really comprehend that they suck at writing, and as cool as it may seem to them
to us, it just plain sucks?

I saw that post a few days ago. I am all for that idea, but this is a bit different - this IS for isk, and to give bored players something interesting/different to do. I fully support Marquis de Aurilen, but this was something I wanted to do on m own with my own isk just for the fun of it.

I certainly wasn't going for a 'creative writing' approach, since I know I am terrible at it and have no desire to do it. I just wanted to throw a bit of fluff into the idea. That being said, I appreciate your comments, and hope to hear more from you in the future. :-)

Don't know about you, but that's why im here. Soon ill pen my first novel, which will be universally panned by critics due to it being a first person account of an unrefrigerated loaf of store brand bread slowly being eaten by a lonely middle aged woman who says " I really shouldn't be eating white bread" after every slice.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Can confirm this is happening, is legit, and you will find stuff if you can answer the questions. Thanks for the find!

The new Sleepers are apparently podding people on SiSi.

It lacks my trademark literary style of comical internal monologuing.

The only people who truly suck at creative writing are those who take courses in it and try to write creatively when they are not creative.

Everybody else just needs practice.

Congratulations for the first find! If you can, let me know which one it was so I can strike it off the list. I'll send the 20 mil bonus as soon as I log on tonight. :-)
