I’ve started an alt in EVE. This is a scary thing.
You see, you can’t start an alt as you can in any other MMO, because of the issue of training – only one character on an account can be training at one time. To train two characters at the same time, you need two accounts…and that is the start of a very slippery slope.
Anyway, I started a Gallente Military character. I’d started my first one as a Miner, thinking that that was how I’d make money: mining, ratting, salvaging, trade. What I hadn’t realised is that I would be so thoroughly bored by mining. So, she’s training different skills, trying to play catchup, while the character I started yesterday can pretty much jump right in and start doing some pvp even with very low skillpoints. I have twelve days left on the trial account, so I’ve sent her some cash to buy and fit an Incursus. Her name is Kitsune…again with my favourite names. :) She’s a saucy redheaded wench with a smart mouth and an attitude…I quite like her.
