Sins of a Solar Spymaster #10: Bastard's Bluff

Posted Tue, May 05, 2009 by The Mittani

Play time's over, and now it's time to get to the nitty-gritty. For the last few weeks, The Mittani has been "playing nice" and showing everyone the softer, albeit still warfare-laden, side of EVE Online. No more.

Now we had some influence, a card I could play. I sent word through Gobblock, our now-burned spy, to ask the IRC leadership to contact me about working out a deal. If they pulled out of Insmother and withdrew in good faith, I'd arrange to give them their stolen assets back. If not, I'd have to get cranky.
