Summary[edit]

Rumor has it that behind the carefully maintained front of a liquor haulage corp a lot of lucrative and mysterious, possibly even heroic and sexy activity goes on. Does this rumor have any basis in fact or is it kept alive by the CEO and founder Taverner in order to give him an excuse to sit arount the office in a string vest drinking all day? One thing is for sure - no money is wasted on fancy office fittings. But if you want a job done. Any job, and you want reliable and discrete service, contact Liquor and Scrap corp.

Snippets[edit]

"So, this guy - he's a genius see, runs in the family, goes by the name of ... something unpronounceable anyway he's my cousin... watch your step that stuff is slippery and it will take off the soles of your boots if you stand in it too long... That's why I wear these Guristas Rabbit Slippers - If they can handle my feet they can handle anything, NOTHING dissolves these babies...look," Taverner lifts a foot, dangerously allowing the red bathrobe to expose a little too much leg and the sole of a slipper, "signed by the Rabbit himself."

Taverner pauses the stream of talking and arm waving to take a long pull on his cigar, and gesturing to a row of frigate-sized humming cylinders at the gloomy end of the Hanger... "What do you think they are? I'll tell you. Centrifuges... know what they do? They spin. Fast. So this guy has an idea and I say, ok, you can use my hanger - he says there's free cap in it for me... But I gotta help him ship these things off Intaki Prime, they used to belong to some crazy cult. Got them cheap, anyways here they are...Why? you ask...Here..."

Walks over the tens of meters towards where the blinking lights on the humming cylinders provide a little illumination to the gloom.

"The station supervisors would throw a fit if they knew these were here.." taps one with a knuckle," They spin so goddamm fast that if one siezes it could wobble the station, could make people in those posh offices upstairs spill their cofee...Heh! Thats the thing see - station Gyros need to know about them to compensate properly, plus they take A LOT of power, more than you get in the Hanger allowance. How do we do it, I'll tell ya, why as well....

"He, this whatsisname guy, cuts into the station gyro backup power feed, with a modified maitenance droid, at the same time as he causes a power spike in the main gyro power feed, at the same time as connecting the power for these babies to the secondary gyro array - can't tell ya how. What does that achieve?

"Well, the station AI caught the blip and registered the centrifuges drain as power needed to compensate for blips in the gyro-stabilizers, so it get's supplied free.... Genius! Enough free power to cover six full hangers and then some. Just need to figure a way to extract the energy from the spinning in a way we can use - that's where you come in...

"Whaddaya mean we get free cap anyway with the hanger, yeah of course we do, NOW... but what if we need more, what if the station ops decide to start charging for it eh? Thats forward thinking, that is what puts Liquor and Scrap ahead of the competition...

"So, whaddya think, can you rig it up to the beer chiller?"

What can a member expect from Liquor and Scrap corp?

We are a corp whose prime function is to enable a small-ish number of eve players to be in a corp that is entirely in character. An RP corp. So a player can be immersed in EVE. What you do and how you do it is up to you. There is a place for you in Liquor and Scrap corp. The goals of the corp emerge from the whims of the members and if anyone wants to go with it then great, otherwise you are free to use whatever is hanging around in the grim and greasy corp hanger to assist your scheme. Hopefully you will bring back whatever you use in the same number of pieces it was in when you took it and hopefully you will throw something extra in a corner for someone else to tape to a frig at some point but hey - it's a hard universe and we just try to get by. (There is a jar in the corner for contributions to Office Rental...) Will we ever get a POS? Will we ever take on Goonswarm? Prolly not, but expect a lot of dreams to be attempted and a fun time had just trying stuff and talking about it afterwards. Maybe great things will come, but they will be the great things of imagination. As the corp skillbase and assets increase, then wilder things can be attempted, and who knows what, let's find out.


What does Liquor and Scrap corp expect from it's members?

IC - Treat the corp a bit like a group of friends, or extended family, or group of like-minded misfits. You don't have to like everyone and you don't have to agree. You don't even have to contribute, but be on-side if it comes to the crunch and you happen to be sober eh? Obviously we don't want people to be a drain on the corp - we do want to move forward at a natural pace in the EVE world, but the main thing is enjoying the process, not being some kind of over-achiever.

OOC - Enjoy playing EVE as a roleplayer. This corp was formed by a player who after years of playing EVE just wants to be able to play the game without stress and be immersed in having a fictional fun time in the world of EVE. Not in a "RP fascist way", but in a 'that is what I came to eve for way and I haven't found it so I am putting it put there' way.

A problem for RP can be, in 0.0 and when getting into the PVP side of things RP is more common, but in the early stages of a new character, mainly engaged in PVE, mission running and the like, especially in empire space it is hard to avoid falling into the grind. Min-maxing ship fits, optimised mission runs, etc, etc. There is an extra ingredient needed to make the most of eve, otherwise you may as well spend your time making real money in a real life grind. That extra ingredient is having the intention to live the fiction you want in the fictional world that is EVE. Maintaining that intention can be the difference between playing just another MMORPG grinding complexes and camping spawns, and really getting the most out of the opportunity that EVE offers. Freedom to take part in and have a fictional fun time in a persistent world. So, if that appeals to you then this corp is for you, and you will help this corp be a basis for maintaining that fiction for the other members, instead of what often happens, especially in empire - which is that player interaction destroys the fiction.

Two firm guidelines apply, but it is not heavy luggage really.

Try to stay in Character and express IC reasons for what you do consistent with your character, even if the real reason is OOC, and with PVP this is especially important.

No OOC chat outside designated OOC chat channels. That way people whose immersion is ruined by OOC chat are protected.

A consistent back-story for a character is good, but we don't turn away nut job compulsive liars with delusions of grandeur about their past or people who just want to keep their secrets either.... Bring your imagination, bring your enthusiasm, bring your laziness, bring your mad schemes, bring your triumphs and bring your failures... Where was I? Oh yeah, anyway, bring whatever.


What can a client expect from Liquor and Scrap corp?
