A long time ago in a galaxy far far away....

I thought of calling this "Origins", or "Alpha Post", but since this is an eve related blog, and eve takes place in a galaxy far far away, (Iceland :)), it seemed fitting.

One of my friends talked me into starting an eve trial 2 years ago, and I fell in love with it.  This game is
 1) beautiful
2) More fun than any other game I've tried ever.

To qualify that second point, my gaming history is a bit extensive.  I started playing games in the early 90s when my grandparents came to visit and brought their laptop.  My grandmother taught me how to play Wolfenstein 3D, and a lifelong love of computer gaming began.

That being said, I've seen a lot of different games in my almost 20 years of gaming.

This being my first attempt at a blog, I have some studying to do so I can make it interesting and cool, I hope :)

As I mentioned, this blog is supposed to be about eve, so getting back to that....

I started out in a high sec corp with the friend who brought me into the game.  At the same time one of our other friends started as well and we had a lot of fun being carebears.  After joining, our once respectable alliance quickly fell into poor management and we stayed around because of the loyalty of our then CEO, and because war dec-ing an alliance is more expensive than war-decing a single corp.  Much of my experience is with high sec mining/industry and missioning.  However recently I made the move to 0.0 and enjoy it.

I think for now, I will wrap this up and get to work figuring out how to make my blog respectable and engaging.  Please let me know what you think, and give me any suggestions on where to take this.

Lastly check out the podcast on which I am 1 of 3 hosts, check out eve if you haven't, and twitter account to be created soon.

Thanks for reading and fly safe all you capsuleers.

Special thanks to Arydanika for championing the Eve Podpack and chatting with me earlier. And to my Corp mates and Eve friends for their support

  1. I'm interested in learning more about eve too...but I'm not sure if I could handle the slow pace of the game. Does the game ever get fast-paced?
