A Social Experiment: the Old Pond Pub


"Mos Eisley spaceport: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."
- Obi-wan Kenobi, Star Wars

With the low-sec regions north of Providence now relatively unpoliced after the TREAD exodus, things in the Derelik region have settled into a new routine. It's fairly quiet, with small roaming gangs and gate-camps, explorers blasting through, industrialists trying to slip by unnoticed and the occasional fleet scaring the bejesus out of the locals before moving on to environs more suited.

Occasionally there is a brief exchange in local, but often cut short by one party's departure from system. I often see the same pilots popping up in local, with little more than a "o/", then they're gone.

So we've opened the OLD POND PUB to encourage locals, passersby or even distant friends to pop in for a chat. I've put up secure can advertisements at the local gates and have been spreading the word. I'm hoping we'll get some colourful characters in, perhaps having the opportunity to chat to some of the local gankers, or maybe a couple of traders will strike some deals. The battle-weary pilots of Providence might find some quiet relief from their null-sec duties.

It'd be great to get some EVE celebrities in for a guest appearance and maybe a CSM candidate Q&A session. It's an open invite, so feel free to stop by if you're in the vicinity of Assah, in Derelik. Or even if you're not.

Join the OLD POND PUB channel, your local hive of scum and villainy.
