Where The Heart Is

 

Seismic Stan has posted his latest (and the 39th!!!) blog banter. It is as follows:

“Some say a man’s home is his castle. For others it is wherever they lay their hat. The concept is just as nebulous in the New Eden sandbox. 

 

In EVE Online, what does the concept of “home” mean to you?”

‘Home’ is a very simple concept for Xander Phoena in the dark and dangerous world of New Eden. Other than the first couple of months in-game over four years ago and a brief dalliance with RvB during some high-sec downtime, I have flown exclusively with Zebra Corp. Whilst I have been frustrated at some of the alliances we have found ourselves in, some of the decisions made, some of the wars fought and suchlike, there are a number of players who have been in Zebra since I first flew with them and I consider them friends. We have a level of banter and fun on comms that I find unique. I can’t imagine ever flying with another group of players. We share a sense of humour and an identity.

Zebra Corp doesn’t really have a home system or region as such. We move from null-sec alliance to null-sec alliance as politics and wars (normally the same thing) force us to. ‘Home’ is where Zebra is deployed. As long as I know I can jump in a Drake / Inty / Scimi / whatever with the guys I have grown to known for years at a moment’s notice, I am home. Being in the same space as these guys is a warm, fuzzy blanket of piss-taking and lulz that I wouldn’t ever want to lose. One bit of black, vast space looks like any other bit of vast, black space and can be easily replaced but experience and cameraderie is something to cling to and cherish.
