Upcoming Contract Recap

Man, life has been a whirlwind lately. I've been trying to work six days a week in Washington DC while juggling multiple interviews for multiple companies located back home in Georgia, all over the phone in an attempt to have work when I get back. I've also been tentatively searching for a new place to live once I get back as my roommate decided to find a new place at the last minute, leaving me with the bag. On top of that, I'm teaching a new person at my company how to do this job as she transitions me. Oh, and my hotel internet is terrible.

All of this means that I've been really slacking on Golden Crusade. I haven't had much first-hand experience to draw from for this blog since I'm unable to play right now, which always leaves me a little writer blocked. I did get to login for a bit before I moved into the hotel and buy some new pirate ships, price be damned! I don't know if I'll ever take out these Mordu's Legion ships, but they're pretty hangar pieces, that's for sure. Hopefully the price will go down enough to make it worth while for me. However I did grab a Phantasm, Ashimmu, and Cruor with the intent of flying those soonish. All three of these ships look to be a lot of fun. I'll need to knock the rust off before I decide to undock in them first though, so it may be a few months before I finally blood them! Get it? Blood Raider? #dadjokes

I do have one post with a very specific focus coming up: another Contract Recap. I do these after every contract that NMG takes on and try to touch on the highlights. I don't go into a lot of detail on the day to day, but just brush the surface of what we were hired to do, any major events during the contract, and how the contract ended.

I want to make sure I have the 'major events' section correct before I post it, but it'll probably come early next week once I'm back at home. It's an interesting one simply because of the nature of the contract. I actually talked about this specific type of contract during my Eve University lecture after someone asked about it, so  hopefully that person will see this and learn a bit more about why I answered the way I did.

Oh, and to Mynxee, if you read this: I haven't given up on Pod Journaling! It's just nigh impossible to have the inspiration for art when you're unable to play. I really look forward to doing some more soon, and with the help of my girlfriend, I'll hopefully be able to mix the paint right this time!
