Change is in the air...

Since I've been back from Amsterdam, I've barely played EVE, except to set a new skill. At first I wondered why. Why, even though I longed to play the game while away, did I not find interest now that I had the time.

And then it struck me. Boredom. Since my return to Phoenix Labs, I've seen the corp crumble to a mere shadow of itself. Over the last few weeks, every time I've logged in, I was either alone, or with other corp mates who were afk. And with FIX in constant wars left and right, that left me stuck in various systems, with little to do. Now we did try to get things going again, but it's been happening at a crawl.

It was time for me to come to a decision. Stick around some more, or cut the chase, grab my things and head out there to make a name for myself. Ok, that may be too theatrical, but you get the picture.

I've mentioned in the past my desire to start up a mercantile operation - a trading corporation that would navigate through empire space and lowsec, and reap the riches doing so. Well I think this time has come. I'm thinking of dusting off the old chart of the corporation I had founded way back when, and start trading in goods again. I'll need to reread the trading articles in those 3 EON issues; sell some of the stuff I've got lying in Querious and head over back to Gallente space to establish the new corp.

Any way that's the plan.

Having said that, I should now return to my regular posting schedule for the next few weeks.

So stay tuned!

Sometimes a change of scenery will do you good :).

I've been gearing up for heavy-duty mercantilism for a while now. I dropped 13 million on trading skills before the weekend, and I should soon be able to take on the galaxy.

I'm torn between the urge to keep my best trading secrets to myself, and the urge to write them up for my own blog.

Thanks a lot for the encouragement Morphisat!

And Drew, would you be interested in join this new mercantile corp? By the way, great articles, love your blog!

it sounds a bit like what I'm doing at the moment, I left my old corp, and am trading up a storm at the moment. Good luck, can't wait to hear how it is going.
