Accidentally the Whole Frigate

The Blackshell Ship Log is evolving! As some of you may have noticed, the theme was re-done to be cleaner, and (if you were paying attention very well) to not contain as many hacks to make it work right. Aside from these technical changes, there are some more important things: a couple of new authors are stepping up to the plate: Arcadia Heterodyne and Kahega Amielden.

As it would no longer be appropriate to call it the Blackshell Ship Log, it is also getting a name change, to Accidentally the Whole Frigate. As Arcadia, Kahega and myself are mainly frigate pilots, the blog will continue to focus on frigate adventures, newbie tips and tricks, and other such things. But now, calling you to attention: the blog will also be moving its address. I am going to keep this post up at blackshell-eve.blogspot.com for a little while (to give all my readers a chance to get the message) and then transferring the blog to a new address (likely thewholefrigate.blogspot.com).

Pew pew!
Now that that's over with, let's have a short biography of the new authors:

Arcadia Heterodyne



Nicknamed "Miss Antimatter" by friends, Arcadia is a relatively novice capsuleer (compared to Kahega and myself) who enjoys doing just that: chucking antimatter at everything, using her blasters. She also enjoys loosing large flights of drones to swarm targets, and likes long walks on the beach.

She is an excellent writer, and has often ranted at me about the various spelling or grammar crimes I commit in my posts. She also has perspective that I lack -- the experience of being a primarily Gallente pilot. She has never flown a Rifter, and I don't think I will ever be able to convince her to. She will, however, tell you all about how fun Incursi (Incursuses? Incursopodes?) are, and maybe even how the word is pluralized and why.

Kahega Amielden


Some of you may recognize Kahega as the author of Kahega's Ninja Salvaging Guide. That guide is a bit aged now, but still relevant and a source of great info about how to best barge into other pilots' mission sites to steal their stuff. He is also one of the original members of Suddenly Ninjas, and may be partly responsible for Dodixie's mediocrity as a trade hub.

Other than being a petty criminal, Kahega is actually not that bad a guy. He has experienced very many of the different aspects of capsuleer life, and enjoys passing that knowledge to newcomers in the form of advice and tips. He was actually one of my mentors as I began my capsuleer career, and has even served as inspiration for some posts on this blog.

That's all for now, folks. I will be nudging the two new authors to write more about themselves at some point, but until then, remember the upcoming blog address change!

Cheers!
