Rik Sadverse

often lost his isk to Jita Ponzi schemers,
his Vexor to Low Lonetrek gate camps
and his Retriever got ganked.

fifteen times!

of course, everybody was losing
mining barges to suicide gankers
but he'd never spill a tear in local chat
and always,
that's right always,
typed back "Good Fight"!

Rik Sadverse ran for about three months with
the Ditanian Incursion Fleet.
then a socket lost got him.
his shiny incursion Paladin
was already in the Amarrian Heaven
when he logged back in.

he went into exploration business,
did very good work.
licked clean the whole Guristas space of any
possible signature and unrated site.
salvaged all the wrecks too.

he was a lousy investor though;
every evening
he'd lose it all on

Rik Sadverse.
head like a watermelon.
neck like an oak trunk.
honesty embodied
behind mission runner glasses.

on a good tick day
he'd give you a Venture as gift
Alas, give you an Astero if he could.

one night after selling his salvage on 4/4 market,
right before downtime,
he saw a suspect Maller on the undock
snatch loot from a fresh
hauler wreck.
he locked the thief and aggressed
the Maller
suddenly a Bhaalgorn.
scram, neuts and two shots;
he was piloting his dead space fit Gila
solid tank when active...
lasted only two seconds.
then a Tornado hit his pod.

full set totaling two billions
not to count the ship.

there was quality crowd
at the Funeral thread
and some forum posting alts.
among the harden the **** up and get the **** out
he realized
he finally won at Eve.

a guy named Lloyd asked for and got
his belongings.
