Welcome to the twenty-second installment of the EVE Blog Banter, the monthly EVE Online blogging extravaganza created by CrazyKinux. The EVE Blog Banter involves an enthusiastic group of gaming bloggers, a common topic within the realm of EVE Online, and a week or so to post articles pertaining to the said topic. The resulting articles can either be short or quite extensive, either funny or dead serious, but are always a great fun to read! Any questions about the EVE Blog Banter should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Check for other EVE Blog Banter articles at the bottom of this post!
This month topic is brought to us by L’Dene Bean of Nitpickin’s who asks: Why, and how did you pick your corporation? Is your loyalty solid or just until a better placed organization “recruits” you. The shorter version: Who holds your Unshakable Fealty and why?
I think my loyalty is solid. In fact, I’m sure it is. On one character I’m the CEO. I could run off with the corp’s worldly possessions at any given moment, but I don’t. Nor do I have the desire to. The value of the assets in the corporation is such that very few people could make an offer to ‘buy me’ so to speak, and even if a reasonable offer was made, I’d be bored without the continuous striving towards total efficiency of the processes I partake in.
Kalahari on the other hand, is far more approachable for subversion. She’s in a roleplay organisation currently, and has ties to that organisation from its founding years ago. But its because of this roleplay association, that she’s more likely to be corruptible if someone were to make the right offer. Obviously I’m not going to tell the world what that character’s buttons are for pressing, but everyone has a breaking point.
Yes, Adrielle has a roleplay background as well, but I generally keep it very low key, and most people know these days that I don’t use her ICly for anything anymore. I just got bored of it, amongst other reasons.
So Adrielle really is ‘Lady Chumpington’, and Kalahari sits very clearly in a particular camp, but is liable to be distracted easily if the right things are put in place.
