Mark Eaton - a man of his drunken word

Melody Amatin
Local is always filled with colourful characters and Tolle has been no less interesting. Of note is Mark Eaton, a particularly vocal miner who was convinced his tank would keep him safe. Well, so long as he was tanked better than the miner next to him, anyway. Actually he had a lot of interesting philosophical and anatomical commentary about the New Order while connected to EVE in his drunken stupor from inside a bar...

Of particular note was this little gem of inebriated bravado:

[ 2013.01.17 06:30:36 ] Mark Eaton > i will pay you 200m isk to gank me

As it turns out, we did manage to work him into our very busy ganking schedule:

Agent Tivianne got his AFK pod too, about 10 minutes later; I suspect warping back to station is tough to do with a hangover.

I diligently submitted an invoice for the 200m payment that was promised:

As it turns out, Mark Eaton is a noble miner who cleaves true to his drunken word. He paid the promised amounts promptly and without complaint. A reformed miner indeed!

I motion we officially commend Mr. Eaton for his honorable actions and good sportsmanship. We should offer him a membership in the New Order complete with a complimentary mining permit and bumpersticker. :)

Mark Eaton is an undercover (sorta) goon. He's a funny guy that likes to drink and make silly bets :)

He definitely took AFK to an extreme level - not only was his mack sitting stationary in an ice field for hours, it wasn't even mining. I think he wanted it ganked, and the reward reinforces that belief. If so, we all got what we wanted that day.
