In celebration of CCP's unwavering commitment to mechanical reduction of interesting opposition, Tippia's account lapses in the first week of July. After 8½ years, since it's nigh on impossible to get killed around here, the number of deaths this poor little highsec carebear has accrued over that time is nothing short of pathetic, and here, at the end of all things, that situation needs to be remedied.

So yes, you can have my stuff. You just have to earn it, so come and get it. Twisted

What's all this then?

Starting June 24, I still very carelessly ship what little remaining junk I have from my almost decade-old home in Irjunen to nearby Kubinen. I invite you all to violently take it from me. I am going to use these ships to move this stuff, and with a bit of luck, none of it will make it there.


What I will do.

With 52 ships to move, that's potentially 208 jumps to get through (plus a return trip, if everything goes wrong), giving ample opportunity to crate a few wrecks, but it may stil take a while.

So between 1800 and 2200 EVE time, on the 24th and every subsequent evening until I run out of stuff to haul, I will pick one of those ships, throw some of the junk in there, and set off using my regular method of careless flying. Some ships will be sensibly fitted; most will not. Anything that arrives safely at the destination will be deposited there. Big ships will carry big stuff; small ships (mostly) smaller stuff; and some of the more annoying ships will carry the more worth-while goods.

What you should do.

Blow me up, of course. There's loot to be had, and I have 4.7bn ISK worth of bounties on my head that should take the edge off of any kind of more suicidal attacks. But there's also another option: at the end of each session, any ships and items that have safely made it to the destination will be contracted off to a random sensible participant in this thread. So what do you do? Go for it and hope that the loot fairy is feeling generous? Help me make it in the hopes that the RNG will pick your name? Or just pad the killboard? Decisions, decisions… P


So again: come and get it! Let there be some explosions!

I hope you get your fight Tippia. I worry though that anyone who reads your notice on these forums and has the disposition to attack you won't out of respect for your years of service. And as we both know, the chance of a random miscreant coming along and trying to explode you is indistinguishable from zero.

I share your disappointment that CCP seems unwilling or unable to deliver a game where interesting things can happen in highsec. I haven't given up hope that might change in the future though so the prudent thing to do would be to keep at least a small nestegg and check back every couple years to see if things have improved.

o7 and enjoy whatever pass-time finds you next.

Sadly, Doc will not be able to participate, but shares your feelings and will follow soon after as his work is nearly done.

Good luck to you, and may Dog have mercy on any who attempt to combat your linguistic acumen wherever you should wind-up

Great way to go, creating "content"

We'll wait, you'll be back.

Back or not, it's still too much junk and if anything, it gets in the way of wanting to get somewhere. So it'll be gone one way or another regardless.

That may be true, but that's why I dreamed up the escape clause: service posting guarantees citizenship lottery participation. Admit it: you're just lazy bums hoping to hit it rich from the luck of the draw. P

You'll be back, we all do. Just "forget" to remove a bunch of assets from rarely used account so you have something to come back to would this happen... you know... hypothetically.

Sad to see you go. Really liked your posting. You'll be missed.

o7 and fly safe wherever the solar winds may send you.

Don't send any stuff though. Accounts are going to lapse here too, due to simply no time left for playing.

Remove standings and insurance.

If you don't mind me asking, was there any process to choose which ships were getting in the "to be hauled" bin and the "to be flown" bin?
