Got some simming started for u boiz, should you wish to participate.
As the name “Rescue Service” (RSS) implies, my one man guild is supposed to be doing some sort of humanitarian stuff to help everyone. last year it got tied down retaliating against pirates and superpowers… this year it got tied down getting materials in place and learning the new geography. But on may 18
it was finally able to set up its first humanitairian aid station, for ALL of you.
The station is not much to look at yet: just a pair of SV’s set to “public” and loaded up with a token amount of supplies. It’s located at:
Homeworld System Waterworld
-1900 x +1200, near the south pole.
I set up right next to the Crashed Titan (mid)…which is already a relatively lucrative and safe spot by HS standards. If the ships disappear when the POI wipes, I guess I will rebuild them a little further away from it.
Even if you don’t need the supplies, this gesture still potentially affects you. If you wish to help the operation, you can drop by and take/leave goodies. If you want to blockade it and help keep Homeworld system in a more violent/distopian state, you can do that too.
My own rules of engagement would be friendliness toward all by default, tolerating any act committed against the aid station itself. That’s what it is there for. Taking all the goods or even blowing up the public ships is something you are welcome to do. The default also would be to avoid involvement in disputes between other players using the station. Obviously I’d try to retaliate if someone were to intentionally kill me or seize any of my non public assets; this would not be a source of anger or malice but would probably interrupt the aid deliveries. Bases or ships placed in a way that prevents public access to the supplies…would also be considered acts of war against the Rescue Service. But until someone starts a conflict with me along these lines, I should be able to maintain and grow this supply cache on your behalf.
Where will this “game within the game” go? Will it be possible to increase the level of civilization and the availability of goods in this harsh and violent system? Will it evolve into a local trading hub and expand with many people participating? Or will the very presence of an aid station become unsustainable as others blockade it or force me into retaliatory ops?
