Siren Song

"Are you my family?
Can I stay with you a while?"
                                                         -- (Siren Song, Bat For Lashes) 

        It appears that the Tusker name and image is ensnaring more and more to wish to fly under our banner. Through our exploits as a corporation, the proto-celebrity status I am in the belief we contain within New Eden, we've become a siren's song to many existing pirates, pilots looking to delve into piracy and all manner of other characters. 

        More members is generally a great thing in my eyes; more pilots means a stronger core which gives us more active players and spreads the Tusker influence further out across New Eden. It's obvious that something is special within the corporation as we have so many member that all have stayed well over a year, some two. Our public channel (usually) is quite a good place to meet new potential applicants and get to know them better, sometimes even setting up some ad-hoc roams with them providing they are in the area. I like to engage with a lot of the new applicants personally as I know that they'll likely become a co-pilot and friend down the line; it's always good to cultivate that early on as to create a comfortable atmosphere for new members. 

        I was just reading up on Taurean Eltanin's latest blog post as I enjoy his journalistic method to his piracy career and decided to explore a little further back, only to find that he has his mind set on joining the Tuskers. In full, I'm here to plug this great blog and wish Taurean the best in getting those 5 solo kills. If you are reading this Tau (as that'll totally be your vent nickname) drop by Hevrice sometime if you feel like heading out on a roam soon. 

P.S. In other news, the second instalment of the Journals should hit in the first week of May. This will be the first monthly report and should be an interesting one! You only have to look at my killboard stats to figure that out. 


  1. Well, the Tuskers are not only a great bunch of pilots, but a great bunch of people, so it's no wonder there is such a draw =)

    Also, <3 this song

  2. Thanks for the plug. I can think of far worse vent nicknames than Tau, so that's fine by me!

    I'm hoping to finish up the Punisher Plan in a position to apply to the Tuskers and immediately move out to Hevrice. So with luck, we'll get that roam soon!

  3. Added Taurean's blog to the Pirate Pack 2.0 (, thanks Kishin.
