Back from the Dead, Almost Literally

As you can tell from the time-stamp of my last post, I have been completely MIA.

Long story short, I came down with a fantastic flu, and spent most of that time as a slug. My gaming restricted to a radius around my new center of operations -the couch- which meant lots and lots of console gaming. But now that I no longer feel like my head will explode while sitting in a vertical position, I am back to EVE again and can resume my blogginess.

Not long ago a few people in the blogosphere made some posts about where they had been in the New Eden according to their in-game map. I thought this was a pretty awesome idea, as for one, I didnt even realize this option even existed in the EVE map. Oh EVE map... mystery of mysteries.
My life in EVE has been quite backwards... most people have their beginnings in high sec.. and possibly eventually make their way to low sec or null. I on the other hand, found myself in 0.0 within a few short weeks of starting the game. This was mainly because I had a few old online friends who were already deeply entrenched in EVE, so I found myself just following along, quite literally flying by the seat of my pants. I took a long break eventually, and returned to find the old corp dissolved, most of my old friends no longer playing. My beginnings in EVE have become all but a mystery to me, I couldn't even remember where exactly I had been.

Thanks to the handy dandy map, I can see most of my start in EVE was spent in Providence, with a few toe tips into Catch. I look and find my wandering has brought me way out to Etherium Reach, and Detorid. What was I doing out there??

In other news, on my ongoing quest to figure out what exactly I want to do in EVE (after 2 years you would think I would have figured this out by now), I've purchased and fit my second T2 frigate, a shiny new Ishkur. So far I haven't had the opportunity to really break her in, but with my corporations recent foothold in 0.0, I don't think that adventure is too far off now.


  1. Two words. Baby punching. EVE Career issue resolved!

    But seriously though, this is what I like about EVE. You can enjoy the game without have a "direction" set out for you.

    Also, capitals. You should get into them.

  2. Glad you're back and that you're in better health!

  3. Good to see you back, we missed you! Ok, when I say "we" I mean me, cause I didn't conduct a poll or anything, so I wouldn't want to speak for everyone. But I bettcha they missed you also.

    Glad you are feeling better.

  4. Its interesting to see that others have a similar track record for playing Eve. By that I mean that I too began a career in Eve long ago (like 2004!), only to take a long hiatus for many years, then return about 8 months later, recover my old account, and also start a new one (currently about 8 months old). The later character is also, interestingly, getting ready for an Ishkur...

    Sorry to hear about your H1N1-esq. illness... but also glad to hear that you'll be back in force in the Eve community =).

  5. We didn't miss you. Nope. Not at all. Especially when we were checking for updates. Several times a wek.... :)


  6. Yay for new posts and good health =)
