Updates!

CrazyKinux was kind enough to link to my blog here and here. Marc Scaurus even linked me in his blogs sidebar!
Together with being listed at EVE Bloggers, here and my self-plug on the EVE forum all these links generated a fair amount of traffic, in fact much more than I could’ve hoped for!

Of course that much love needs to be spread far and wide, so I now have links, too.
The categories are pretty self-explaining, I think, and will of course be expanded as I come across more stuff.

I haven’t tried Red Frog and the  Jumpclone Service – both found with my amazing google-fu – yet but the comments tell of very good services. I am currently training Science Lv.4, the prereq for the jumpclone skill.
4 million ISK is kind of expensive – could’ve bought eight fitted Rifters with that amount of cash! – but I feel that it’s well worth the money.

So, what else is new?
Most of my day was spent tweaking my blogs theme and now  I’m glad to present it in its final incarnation!
I think its p. cool and I hope you’ll all enjoy it.

Sadly I’ll probably won’t have time to continue my adventures in New Eden till Friday evening. But I’m determined to double my efforts as soon as I’m undocked.
The cool part is that I’ll finish Engineering 5 on that very day which will enable me to train Thermodynamics – which is probably prohibitively expensive, too.

I’ve been reading the excellent EVE Chronicles lately and I am in the process of drafting my own stab at EVE (Fan)Fiction.

Also I’m about half done writing up my thoughts on the New Player Experience, so stay tuned!

Downtime

Posted in EVE online, OOG with tags , , on 2011/02/12 by Sebadai

So… it’s downtime and you got nothing to do?

Try this: Eve Avatar Face-Off

Or you might want to read some blogs: The Eve Online Bloggers Portal or you go here: EVE Blog Bundle OPML Files or here EVE Online Blog Roll

If you’re new, like I am, and you want to start a PvP career you should check out Wensleys excellent Rifter Guide at Rifter Drifter!

That should get anyone through the downtime!

In which I introduce myself

Posted in OOG on 2011/02/08 by Sebadai

Hello there!

I am a Gamer in my mid-twenties and as you can see like many other guys playing MMORPGs I choose to have a female avatar. But I’m not one of those who actually pretend to be a girl.
Lets be perfectly clear: I am in fact a guy!

I usually always play with a female character, not only online but also in games like Mass Effect. I mostly do so because I view characters not as an extension of myself; mine is the third person narrative and I like stories about ruthless women. In a way I view myself as the author of my characters’ tales.
Of course I’m a bit inconsistent. For example I always choose my characters names with voicecoms in mind – I’d rather not be called girly names.
Seba is an old RL nickname – maybe you can guess my real name – and I added dai  for a certain “Mongolian” sound because my toon is a Khanid Cyberknight.
– which sounds a bit dirty, I guess –

I am also a German, so if my English is a bit cumbersome at times I apologize. I won’t be mad if someone points out grammar mistakes, either.
This blog is in English for the same reason I prefer the English client to the German localization: I like to profit by my hobbies.
If I’m doing something fun and can improve my language skills at the same time – so much the better!

Anyways, I am a new player but not a total noob. My first trial was two years ago and last year I actually was subscribed for three months or so – I quit because a lack of time and general RL issues.
So this time around I started a new account instead of reactivating to have a character age that won’t make people think I have tons of experience and skillpoints, a much better name and the best looking bloodline – beauty is in the eye of the beholder, don’t forget! ;-P

That’s it for now!
