Many I’m sure have fond memories of the “0.0 Experiment” by EVE player Innominate Nightmare (I must resist the full-caps version of his name as I have a headache this morning): It was, over the course of a few months, the consistently lively journal of an unknown character as he tried to explore the murky backwaters of civilized space, gradually making himself more well-known by shining his indomitable wit into the gloom and discovering it’s even murkier out there than some of us had suspected. If you missed his superbly-crafted musings, I suggest you go and read through them over the course of a few days (it’s a fine coffee-break read if nothing else). Among the dozens of diary entries there is much to learn about how 0.0 space works, how much of the time it just doesn’t, and, whilst many of the alliances mentioned within are no longer active, the activities of their successors are much the same.
So I was wondering, since there has been a recent “official” tribute to the works of the dearly-departed Inno, whether it was time for someone to become properly inspired by his endeavors: Not to jump in a shuttle and go exploring nullsec – since it’s kinda been done already and unlikely to be done much better – but rather for someone to sit in a station and try to earn a few billion by trading, fleecing, begging and betting. The “1.0 Experiment“, if you will. Just a thought.
