Mord, Lord of Delve
I've been thinking or ruling Delve. Mord, Lord of Delve. It has a deep, sonorous ring to it that's pleasing to to the ear. It tolls majestically, as a name from the Nibelung or the Poetic Edda. OK, yes; Lord of the Rings too. Tolkien sourced his names heavily from old Germanic/Norse works.
Of course one should never make such decisions solely on aesthetic considerations. Delve would not be my first choice of regions for a number of strategic and economic reasons. Still.
"Mord, Lord of Vale of the Silent"
"Mord, Lord of Tribute"
It's all 'Lo, the tax man cometh!'
"Mord, Lord of Period Basis"
"Mord, Lord of Outer Passage"
"Mord, Lord of Fade"
"Mord, Lord of Querious"
Well, I can be querulous at times. Still.
See? It keeps coming back to Mord, Lord of Delve. And Delve does have the advantage of being something of a turn-key rental operation. The tenants are already there and, with the right incentives I'm sure they could be encouraged to stay under new management.
Of course, the current landlords would have to be convinced of the wisdom of turning the rule of Delve over to me. Hmmm. That could be a challenge. I can think of four or five ways it might be managed and only two of them could be accomplished without a fanatical army/barbarian horde at my back. And a quick glance over my shoulder confirms I'm a bit short in the fanatical army or barbarian horde department at the moment.
Well, perhaps that can be remedied. This is EVE after all, and the play's the thing. What with events in nullsec of late I'm sure there's more than a few fanatical armies/barbarian hordes jostled loose and wandering about, at loose ends and with an axe to grind. In fact you may be just such a fanatical army/barbarian horde, in need of useful occupation and a bit of blood-letting. Or you may be close friends with a fanatical army/barbarian horde in a mood to create some in-game events to call their own.
If that's the case, we should talk.
