“Y’all see the news on the Sisters ship?”
The other two looked over at Mike as if he had lost his mind. Scotty answered first. “You own a Stratios and gave your Astr to some hotshot frigate pilot. So what is new?”
“Nah, not the lil ships. Their battleship they gots coming. Lemme see.” Mike fiddled with the comm on the table and brought up an image and stats.

Ev whistled softly. “Ah heard dem rumours dat dis was a’comin but man . . . oh wait. It ain’t covert cloak?”
Mike shook his head. “That is kind of the job of the black ops ships. As far as I know the Sisters are not into black ops, just keeping safe and hidden. What it IS for is ship rescue, I suppose. That range bonus to armour reps along with the bonuses for repping. Biggest logi boat out there.”
Scotty nodded. “A group of them would make for a nasty spider tank set up. Set out sentry drones then link up and sit back. They got estimates on how much it is gonna cost?”
Mike grimaced. “I am already to welcome at the Sisters they bring me my coffee just right when I show up. After this I think I will have my own office.” He touched a control.

“Mon dat gonna be one expensive ship, dere” Ev opined. “Whatcha figure it sell for on the market?”
Mike squinted at the numbers and shrugged. “I heard 800 mill being bandied about as a guess but I think they are shooting too low. My guess will be closer to 1.3 billion. But I don’t claim to be a math whiz, just a poor old pilot.”
“So how did you come up with the number?” Scotty asked.
Mike sighed. “I compare to the Startios market. Right now it is selling for a shade over 430 million. To get one ready made in highsec is 300k in loyalty points and 20 million isk. So I subtracted the isk and said 410 mil for 300k lp. With me so far?”
They nodded so Mike continued. “So I do some simple division and get 1367 isk per lp value. That is what doing a mission for the Sisters pays in hidden rewards. I do a simple 3500 lp mission and I have earned . . .”
Mike reached for his comm but Ev interrupted him. “Mon, dat be 4.7 million. You no learn simple math and you gotta use a comm for very little ting?”
Shaking his head Mike took his hand back from the comm continued. “So if each LP is worth 1367 isk then a ship that is 1 million lp works out to be . . . ” He looked over at Ev.
“Yeah, I sees it now. 1.4 billion might even be closer but then the market pulls might not support dat. I guess dat why you be undershootin?”
Mike nodded. “Market values jump and dip according to what it can and will bear. I am sure I am gonna be getting a call from Caroline asking me what price we can agree on for the battleship. (Though I have heard tell she ain’t impressed with it that much) But aside from that, what do you think of the ship?”
I am in the midst of plowing through another 45+ thread of the responses to that last question. But just in case you prefer to respond outside of Eve-O, what do you think?
Me, I like it but then I do fly a MJD sentry Domi so this is right up my alley.
fly it like you won it
