Get a Tengu?

They say that the server is being patched, or updated.  I don’t know.  Somehow I think there is something more to it.  The flights off planet have been grounded indefinitely but nobody will say why.  The mood of the research station is unsettled.

“I wonder if we can ‘haz his stuff’?”  The controller asked from the comm panel.

“What?”  She breathed out slowly, trying for two more reps on the bench.

“Azariah has managed to really get under somebodies skin, this time.”

“He’s” a soft grunt as she pushes through the last press. “good at that when he puts his mind to it.  Who did he piss off this time?”

“Someone who can retask ‘Gods Light’ to fall on him like a ton of bricks.  They have tried twice, already.”  He tapped the controls and frowned.  “Is he that skilled or just that lucky?”

“God’s Light?”  She rolled to her feet and looked over his shoulder.  “Both and neither.  He has friends . . . and enemies.  They tend to cancel out.  What has he gotten himself into this time, though?”

“As agreed, the information source will remain . . . confidential.”  The hooded figure whispered.

The Merc nodded and passed across his recording of the last ‘run’.  He smiled as his comm chimed showing a substantial transfer had just been made.  “You know that this recording paid better than the whole damn run did?”

“Value changes, depending on who is buying and what is being sold.  Your employer merely worried about people.  I worry about souls.”

“Whatever, pleasure doing business with you.”  The Merc stood and headed out of the bar.

The hooded figure ignored the mercenary as he fast-forwarded through the combat log to the scene in the final room where a singing pilot ‘took souvenirs’.  He hissed in displeasure as he zoomed in on the recording and confirmed that both ancient comm units and written materials were tossed in the bag, seemingly at random.  The image froze on a single book in the mans hand . . . .

“I have been avoiding Jita for a while.”  Mike protested.

“I know, but it is the best place to get a ship if you want to try your hand at FC’ing.”

“And what sort of tanky ship would you recommend?”

The voice on the other end laughed.  “A Drake.”

“No. I am not going to FC in a missioning ship.  I have an order in with a friend for a Tengu . . . but he has been slow on delivery and I don’t dare buy anything with the isk laid aside.”

“Buy one.  The BTL will cover your expenses.”  Mikes comm chimed as funds arrived. “We’d like, in exchange, a decent guide for beginning FC’s.  Do we have a deal?”

“You send the isk and THEN ask if we have a deal?  Kinda risky.”  Mike grinned.

“Not if you know who you are dealing with.  You have been a member of BTL for a long time.”

Mike nodded.  “OK, no major incursions right now.  I suppose I am going shopping.”

Eve HQ says I have  . . ./me blinks, um why do eve hq and ingame disagree so much on things like EHP?  Who do I believe?

anyhow

Eve hq says I have 104k ehp, that should let me call targets and tag without worrying about going POP.  Now if a damn incursion would show up . . .time to start studying and researching, I suppose.  My thanks to BTL for the donation to buy and fit a Tengu . . .damn it, you do know me and that I will do my best to write something worthwhile because of this.

Oh and about the other plots, will mercs wind up holding corp info, will the meta spy game spill down into dust514?

    In game shows raw HP, not EHP.

      Ah, that would make sense. BIIIIG difference and now if someone asks ingame what is ehp, what number do most of you use to decide who is the ‘anchor’?

    Re: EHP disagreement.

    As I understand it EVEHQ and EFT both calculate EHP based on uniform damage (25% of each damage type), unless you specify a spread. The in-game fitting tool knows that EHP are used against Omni (the act of firing whatever you’re weakest against) damage and therefore shows your EHP against Omni. This will always mean in-game is lower than EFT. As long as you compare EFT scores with EFT scores and in-game to in-game you’re good.
