By Delivery Agent Saladiin
In recent months, Eve capsuleers exploring data and relic sites have noticed significant buffs to the exploration career field. From the removal of “loot spew” to improved loot tables in wormhole space, explorers are finding enjoyment and profit in the field.
Unfortunately, what these explorers fail to realize is the devastating and permanent damage they are doing to New Eden’s cultural heritage. These sites contain not only technology from various pirate factions and empires, but also the memories and remnants of groups and societies long past. Without someone to preserve these sites, our history will soon be reduced to groups of empty cans floating in the cold depths of space.
Fortunately, Wingspan Delivery Services has taken notice of this disaster and has stepped into action. With their new “Data and Relic Site Enforcement Division” initiative, volunteer delivery agents probe out these sites and enforce a firm but fair “no-hack” policy.
“We need to keep grave-robbers and cold-hearted scavengers from these sites,” says Saladiin, a volunteer of the division. “These thieves slink in and out of these sites in their CovOps ships and recklessly take anything and everything that’s not bolted down. If there was a kitchen sink floating in the site, they’d probably take that too!”
When asked how he responds to intruders, Saladiin said this: “We try to be friendly but at the same time we need to be firm and make these people understand that what they are doing is wrong. You can’t just waltz in and take whatever you want from these sites. These are relics and graveyards; you can’t disrespect the dead like that. So we typically provide them with a free delivery of torpedoes to ‘encourage’ them to find a new career field. WDS even offers career counseling services to pilots willing to explore new career options, especially mining.” When asked if anyone has taken him up on his offer, Saladiin sullenly responded no.
