Pat.. Pat.. Pat.. My feet pounded down the corridor to the pod. I had skipped the highly recommended medical procedures before getting hooked up. It was certainly a desperate time. Why in the name of all that is good did I have to sleep in the middle of low sec? My thorax was helpless whilst I rested. I finally reached the pod and booted up my ship; feeling the power of the cruiser enter my mind. I took stock of my surroundings, a vagabond 2 vexors and a few other frigates. Not Good. My crew chief opened a channel to me, pleading "Do something before we all die!" I responded with a "Correction, before all of you die." And closed the convo. So what was I going to do.... Oh, my ship just warped out, back to where it was before I left my pod. How convenient.. a logONski.
Our new home was proving to be rather nice; it apparently lacks the blobs that were a fairly regular occurance in Aurohunen. And the local 'pvp fest sytem' (PFS) where people just seem to congregate to kill eachother is a mere 6 jumps away. We are also in a low-high sec border system, all in all very nice. The only problem though is that the local Jita, Hek, is about 7 jumps away.. not much fun to do in a hauler. But oh well, get some lose some.
Back to the present, however. Scanning local, I noticed a noob in a thrasher; since I he was apparently not at a belt, I simply invited him to fleet up with me. He accepts of course. I begin my warp, to the tune of an openening channel:
[ 2008.10.11 17:59:42 ] Adelai Nyska > Are you gonna kill me?
Thinking fast, I deny this since with the explanation that blinky red means I specialize in helping others by the means of asset alchemy (from ship to space dust). As my ship leaves warp, I immediatly begin resolving my lock on him, the poor kid.
Floating in my safespot, I see yet another thrasher on scan. He too is doing one of those cosmic anomalies; hmm, ah, but he has joined my fleet, warping in now. As soon as I leave warp, I resolve my lock and disrupt him. However, there is much pleading in fleet.
[ 2008.10.11 18:01:05 ] Adelai Nyska > Please dont [ 2008.10.11 18:01:09 ] Lanissum > why not [ 2008.10.11 18:01:17 ] Adelai Nyska > Because I have nothing [ 2008.10.11 18:01:20 ] Lanissum > how much is your ship to you? [ 2008.10.11 18:01:28 ] Adelai Nyska > You wont get anything valuable from me [ 2008.10.11 18:01:34 ] Lanissum > no ransom? [ 2008.10.11 18:01:36 ] Adelai Nyska > I have 3 mill [ 2008.10.11 18:01:42 ] Lanissum > then pay up m8 [ 2008.10.11 18:01:57 ] Lanissum > i'm shooting 1 blaster, you got till it blows you up [ 2008.10.11 18:01:59 ] Adelai Nyska > ok ok [ 2008.10.11 18:02:33 ] Lanissum > 30 seconds [ 2008.10.11 18:02:42 ] Lanissum > hm, close enough [ 2008.10.11 18:02:46 ] Lanissum > fly safer
Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't destroyers only worth about 1 mil? Then there's insurance... well, he was willing to pay it. But then he might've had some second thoughts, as he sent this mail shortly afterwards.

HONORABLE PIRATE???? I ASKED YOU NOT TO FUCK WITH ME
WHY CANT YOU FUCKING ASSHOLES MAKE YOUR OWN GODDAMN MONEY
Somethings are priceless, such as the rage of a noob who thinks (as I once did) that this is wow or something.
Later, we formed up a giant gang (for python, we seem to be doing that alot more nowadays). We eventually scanned down a hurrican ratting or something and all warped in to get him. However, he was mwding faster than any of us (he neuted the frigs, and blew a few up). We proceeded to chase him about 70 km from the center of the belt. Now, there are about 12 ships all chasing this lone hurricane in a pell mell fashion, he may have been trying to string us out so he could gank a ship of ours (he did get a frig).. but then he just stopped. [Video below] This happens when 12 pirates catch up to you.
We got a lock on his pod, and were going to ransom it.. (Voip re-enactment) TJ: Ok guys, lets ransom this pod! Andrea Sky: Too late, I just fired 6 missiles at him!
