Teo years ago on this day, a young man committed suicide. John Bellicose, a member of Brave Newbies had committed an act to which we are all so aware of and yet never know the reasons why this happens. It’s heart breaking, to someone’s family, friends, loved ones we don’t know or never met, the impact this leaves behind, the questions of why may or may not be answered after someone takes their own life.
And now today, through a coopertive effort with CCP Games the maker of Eveonline, suicide awareness is on the forefront in our fight against mental illness. With an ingame channel players can reach out for helpful advice and referrals to get help in the local area no matter where in the world we are.
The video shows a vigil that since April 2015 was started by the Brave Newbies and Brave Collective in memory, and for twenty fours a cyno vigil is kept watch, not just for John Bellicose, but for all who fell victim to suicide.
Please, if you are having thoughts or know someone who is thinking of suicide, reach out to family, friends, get help before it’s too late. The life you save, may be your own.
CCP Games hit another run out of the ballpark!

I cannot describe how choked up with emotions and tears when this was played at Fanfest 2017. I feel reallly sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the house and this certainly describes how such a unique community plays and works together no matter who we are. Have a listen and tissues close by;
After some discussions with friends of mine it was suggested I write about the things I enjoy doing in New Eden. So besides some craziness from my point of view as an EvilSpaceNun, I am going to jump into two different areas, Exploration and Industry. Sure, being a miner is boring sitting there mining asteroids but somebody gotta do the dirty work and then to reprocess the raw ores into the minerals used to build pretty much everything a capsuleer uses every day. The same way with ice mining that I do alot of for POS* fuel. I’ll give a run down over time about Industry and what it takes to producing everything we use on a daily basis.
Exploration, I have been doing a considerable amount of explorations in known space and wormholes. One never knows what we will find as we explore this great universe we live in, and making discoveries even from a scientific point of view such as I have been doing in research work dealing with the Drifter menace and Shattered Wormholes. That covers a tremendous area as far as my research projects goes and still a long ways from completion.
So, settle back, enjoy the ride as I talk about both of these aspects of what I enjoy doing and let’s see where we go to next!

Oh my gosh! CCP’s Art Department did one heluva overhaul and this is on the test server! New sun effects!
I just suppose you think I’m gonna go easy on ya right? WROOOOOONG! Suuuuuuuuuuure I may have mellowed a bit but that doesn’t mean that my old ways of piracy have gone by the way side no way no how! I can see how the look in your eyes shows to me just how much you fear for your life as I watch you ever so carefully at range, and the fact that you are trembling in your pod not knowing what will happen next.
Course you know being a pirate is something I have tried and had some success at watching you explode into a glorious ball of fire after you refused to pay a ransom I demanded for and well, tough luck.
Sure, I may be a Holder because that’s how I get my slaves to do my every beck and call without question. I demand they do the jobs they are required to do with out questioning me, other wise it’s the airlock from my ship if ya know what I mean! And I just suppose you’re gonna stand there whimpering and crying, pleading for your life and to have me think of your family planetside, well I’m pretty sure they will be looked after by your next of kin if you have any left……..
Nevertheless, I can assure you that your next life will be such you’ll wished you done what was demanded of you, and yet you took being a coward out and well, the end result wasn’t very pretty and messy. Oh well, time for me to move on to find more slaves somewhere in New Eden.
