One of the first things I do when I play a new character-based game is ask myself, “How do I make Toldain in this system?” Yes, I know, I’m stuck in a rut, but I’m 3000 years old, what do you expect? In EVE, I was faced with some interesting possibilities. It seems Gallente was going to be my race, since they were the most friendly seeming. Which matches up well. I ended up being forced to choose between the best background and skills (Intaki Artist), the best stat profile or the best appearance. I chose to go with Intaki Diplomat, seeing as how the EQ1 version of Toldain was extremely charming.
By the way, that picture up there is Bette Davis from the 1950 Oscar-winner All About Eve. If you haven’t seen it, stop that mining this instant and go rent it and give it a watch. It has few explosions except for most of Bette Davis’ lines, but still worth two hours, assuming your skills are queued up.
Anyway, here’s what Toldain looks like. Not as pretty as he might be, but somewhat elfin, and with fabulous red hair, for sure. And as a capsuleer, he is immortal. I think his eyes are so sunken because he was up really late last night waiting for a manufacturing run to finish so I could get the speed completion bonus to the mission…never mind, I’ll talk about that in another post.
I’m not sure there is such a thing as a mezzer in EVE, maybe some kind of ECM that I’m way too much a noob to do anything with? I look forward to finding out about all this kind of stuff.
So, I’ll be letting you know what’s happening. Coming soon, spreadsheets and
