I formed this corporation yesterday after amicably parting ways with my former corporation.

The griefers and pirates ( I know the difference) have had their own way too long. Until now, bounty hunting was a no-win situation, but recent changes and changes coming with the next and future patches have and will put a little more weight on the 'good guys' side of the scale.

Being an effective mercenary doesn't happen overnight. If mining and manufacturing aren't your cup of tea; if you're an adrenalin junky; if you have your own cruiser and frigates (a warrior who knows how to kill a battleship with a few frigates is more interesting to me than a pilot who can kill a frigate/cruiser or two with a battleship);if you have 2 million skill points trained, more or less; if you are Gallente ( Fianna can and will accept other races);if you're willing to put in the time, sweat and blood, then the Fianna may be for you.

I'm not a beta-tester but I've been playing since day one release. I've mined, manufactured, researched, traded, killed NPC pirates and run agent missions. I still do. I've been a corporate indian and a corporate chief. I've chosen the path of the mercenary because it looks like the most fun to me. I want to kill pirates not be one.

I'm not accepting newbies atm. I'm not planning to be a big corporation. I need just a few good fighters.

We are unlikely to become rich. We might become famous. We will definately have a good time.

I offer no pay ( except your share of the bounty/contract fee), no ships (we don't mine or manufacture), no dividends (the corporate wallet will always be empty, I'll pay the office rent). I offer only honor, glory, fame and a whole lot of fun. For some of us ( you know who you are :) this is plenty.

Contact me ingame.

Is this based on the Celtic tribe or the modern day terrorists?

Macumba....The Fianna are a Celtic tribe....what you are thinking of is Na Fianna who are the youth organisation of the provisional movement in Ireland.

Also please reserch stuff before posting questions like that.

It depends entirely on your point of view. Though I'm slightly biased having lost family through whats gone on in N.Ireland.

Fianna Fáil is nothing but a front.

Ireland needs to be re occupied by the English King and all Irish carebears should be shot.

The Fianna, circa 300 A.D. and earlier, was an elite fighting corps pledged to serving the Ard Ri (High King). They were roughly analogous to the Roman Caesar's Praetorian Guard.

Fionn MacCumhail or Finn MacCool was the Rigfennid fianna, the overlord of these troops, under the Ard Ri Cormac. He and his troops were legendary fighters and because of this, Ireland enjoyed thirty years, more or less, of relative peace.

Finn MacCool actually managed to die of old age, rare among the Fianna. His son, Oisin, was one of the most renowned Bards of Ireland.

The English don't have a King at the moment. I am merely an American of Irish descent but unless I've missed something, England is ruled by Queen Elizabeth II, who, incidentally, shares genes with Brian Boru, the greatest of all Irish High Kings :)

English Kings (and Queens) have been trying to conquer and occupy Ireland, with little success, since 1166 A.D. No King, Caesar or Emperor has ever successfully conquered and occupied the whole of Ireland. On the other hand, the Irish and their close kin, the Scots Highlander, have occupied Ireland, Scotland and the Hebrides for more than 2,000 years.

If it weren't for the invention of whiskey, the Irish would probably have taken over the world by now :)

Skillz, anyone who has met the Irish Celts in combat in the last 2,000 years would be puzzled at your comparison of them with 'carebears' :)

Skillz have you nothing better to do all day except jack treads in the forums throwing insults around? you have managed to derail this tread into a political rl issue at this point....This is the point where I am convinced the account your using is belong to a responsable adult ie your parents. Don't you have a action man to play with or something?

O Skillz by the way if you are going to reply with same crap as allways "you are now on my kos list" " I will pod ya next time I see ya" Then you can find me anytime your up to put your isk where your mouth is!!Very Happy

My apologies to Macumba and to Fionn Mac Cool for unwittingly opening pandoras (skillz) box.

I am a Celt and I'm not the average stupid American either. But then again, thanks for the history lesson.

Hint: read about when the Napoleon tried to take over Ireland with their help, and failed miserably in 1791.

And yes, Corporal Hicks, your on my KOS list, and you were on it even before you made your stupid post to begin with.

Tír d'shaoirse a bhunaigh Éire agus tír saoir a chóimeadtar sé. Ireland was born a free country and it will remain a free country.
The Irish have been facing oppression for hundreds of years now, and I'm pretty used to bigots like Skillz leeching enjoyment from other peoples disappointment.
You impress me Fionn. It's nice to see an American so intouch with his roots. I can see the spirit of the warrior still lives inside you Very Happy

Hands up if you think skilz should be taken aside, and given a good old "celtic kickin?".

The guy said he lost family in northern ireland and u come up with that commentShocked.

You are a complete prat who hijacks ALL posts, you should be banned from ever using a computer again, never mind just banned from playing eve, as you clearly are imature and a bit of a re:::::ard.

Oh and just before you say!! you are on my KOS list too, no place in this game for scum like you:(.

Personally I'd harvest his fingers and use them to feed the hungry children. That way he can say he did something decent with his life. And he'll never be able to type again. Which is a plus for the rest of us.

Why would you want to do that to children? UGH!!!

Although I agree.....he is a childish brat that deserves to be thrust out of the Eve community for his consistant abuse of the forums.....

Good for you Fionn and although I can't join you on your endeavor the best of luck to you....

I am sure the people like Skillz won't daunt you and I hope you realize he does not reflect the majority of the people in Eve.

How about posting images that are way above the maximum allowed size? Is that abuse or is it ok because you're a 'carebear' and only pirate wannabie from Stain?

Very advanced argument you had there. Tell me are you going to 'Look, if I can't right you. I'll report you, got it'

What's worse than a pirate? Yes, it's a carebear pirate wannabie. Now that's a total waste of oxygen.
