I am currently building up stockpiles of various commodities both purchasable on the market and only obtainable through missions.

What I plan to do is make a Corp Hanger Tab full of things that will Troll newcomers to the game.

I am going to list below the things I need and hopefully the need for these items will create a supply of them, if only for the sake of my own needs.

Runaway Daughter

X-Rated Holo Reel
Prostitute
The Cake

If anybody wants to give any quantity of these things to me for free I would appreciate it. Just to put this inter perspective and explain the method to my madness.

I was oldsmeller from Black-Dragonflight the guy who stacked his entire 6 tab guild bank with 20 stacks of gold bars and convinced people to donate money to the guild so that when the end came they would be welcomed into a golden spaceship.

It is poetically ironic that After attaining the single largest guild ever in the history of the game, based on the premise of a spaceship ride to a better place/game; I now end up playing eve.

With that said, consider this the very beginning of a large scale community based social experiment. I need massive amounts of all the items listed above.

The Want To Buy forum section is that way.

And begging is not allowed on the forums.

They can't be bought though.

There is no "sell" option on mission specific items.

I am not begging ither, In order to beg you must ask for something that has a given value. The things I requested are without such a value as they are not designed to be bought and sold.

Sure they can be sold. Linkage
And nothing is without value.

There are currently no contracts at this point in time that result in the exchange of any of these listed items.

Hence the thread.

Have you considered they are not for sale cause people don't want to sell them?
Just because they can't be used for anything but having them, doesn't mean people
doesn't value them. There are many collectors in this game.

Look at it this way..

The market drives the world of eve, look at jita for example everybody clusters there because it is socially expected to do tradeing and contracting there. This is a self perpetuating concept. Once 20 people start bringing all their wares to sell at spot X then 40 more people show up and so on. Until you have something like jita were thousands of people do something like buy/sell simply because of a social trend.

That trend can be a location like jita or it can be an item or collection of items the inspires more collections of items.

By collecting provacative in-game materials and putting them in 1 place where people can see them will cause a response. If that response is consistent between enough people then a trend will form. That trend can but wont always change the way the game is played or open new ways of playing it.


Edit: The Trend or Reaction I am trying to provoke is one of shock and curiosity. I Will use Items in game as a vehicle of expression. This expression if well received will promote a response and that response is unknowable at this time.

I can't tell if this is a well-done troll, or just really is an incredibly bizarre request...

All of those items have value. Nobody will give them up for free. Offer to buy them, and you may get some more responses. They can be traded via contracts, is my guess, and if they can't, then they certainly can be traded through the trade window.

Contracts, but the reason nothing is up there is because people don't want to sell these things even if they have them. Because they are awesome. They certainly wouldn't be quick to trade them with an exclamation mark in any case, tainted money sucks.

Oldsmeller has to be one of the biggest douche bags on the server.. But that as well is old news. ALl we can do is hope that he goes out and gets hit by a truck.


Or in our case goes back to bothering WOW.
