What exactly do you get for destroying another player's ship? Or his pod? Is there a monetary reward, do you acquire his cargo, or is it neither of these? Is ransoming a PC the only way to get anything worthwile out of him? I perused every guide I could find online, and while I found a plethora of information on how to PvP, I couldn't find the answer to this question. Thanks all!

*takes the bait*

When you blow someone up, theres a chance that every module on their ship (as well as each item in their cargo, and drones in their bay) will either be destroyed, or moved to the ship's wreck. In the case of cargo containers, it's all or nothing; if the can survives, all its contents survive.

So your reward for blowing up another player is the chance to loot any of the items/modules/drones they had on their ship. You can also salvage the wreck.

Thanks Horchan! Here's a followup:

When you say salvage the wreck, do you mean that its possible to repair a ship I have destroyed and take possession of it?

Also, do you think it's more economically viable to ransom someone, or to outright pod them, considering that an insured ship could not reasonably be ransomed for more than the difference between their insurance payoff and the value of their ship?

The primary reward for destroying another player's ship is the RL adrenaline rush. In fact, this reward is also given in many cases when another player destroys your ship.

Beyond that, one may seek ransom or loot (the loot is flagged to the person who lost the fight, but if you're already a criminal for attacking their ship and popping their capsule, you won't be stopped by such niceties); but there's more money to be made in ratting or running missions than in PvP.
