Advent Celebration – Dec 6th

What we know about the monstrous Amarr capsuleer Santa Claus:

  • It’s gluttonously overweight.
  • It makes use of undernourished, growth stunted slaves to do Its bidding year round.
  • It smokes (a pipe).
  • It drinks (rosy cheeks).
  • It dresses in blood red.
  • It is immortal, as far as we know (clone technology).
  • It only appears at night, flying through planetary atmospheres with horned beasts at Its command.
  • It uses some unknown warp technology to infiltrate trillions of homes in one night.
  • It is not afraid of fire or heat (in chimneys, for instance) or cold for that matter.
  • It has beady, coal-black eyes (all pupil, maybe, or perhaps insect-like).
  • Its bloated midsection wiggles like gelatin (an undead substance made of decaying animal parts).
  • It is sometimes called “Old Nick” (which pretends to refer to St. Nicholas, but is really a nickname of the Devil).
  • Its name is an anagram of Satan Lucas, which sounds very sinister to me (“the Light of Satan”?).
  • It spreads Its message of greed and gluttony on the very eve of the celebration of Christ’s birth.
  • Indeed, many children believe in Satan Lucas many years before ever learning of the “true meaning of Christmas”, and even then the “true meaning” is largely ignored, and the evil rites are passed on to another generation.
  • There is a song about It which begins, “You’d better watch out…”
  • Its minions, an elaborate network of spying adults, keep tabs on your behavior throughout the year, and postal services of the universe dutifully deliver reports to It.

In short, Santa Claus is an evil conniving Amarr, who has become powerful enough to control the economy, tempt people to do very wicked actions (all cloaked in “holiday spirit”), and battle Jesus for control of his own birthday. The cult of Satan Lucas is growing rapidly. Children are being programmed to be evil minions when they become adults. Ritual sacrifices of innocent milk and cookies are offered up to Its obesity. Depression, crime, and suicides increase during the Christmas hellidays, and no wonder.

Protect yourself. Do not invite this demon into your home. Take down your stockings. Burn Hanukkah candles to ward It off. Do not give anyone gifts! This practice only makes It stronger.

  1. Minmatar, Minmatar, Minmatar Roc
    Fight the Amarr and give ‘em a shock
    Blastin’ and blowin’ up a pirate’s ruled space
    Just to see the look on his face.

    Minmatar, Minmatar, Minmatar Roc
    Minmatar blast in Minmatar fast.
    Killing a pirate and webbing him there
    In the dead space air!

    What a bright time! It’s the right time
    To blow some ‘rats away.
    And null sec space is the best place
    To put a new fit on your one horse sleigh.

    Giddy up, capsuleer, pick up your feet
    And warp to the Christmas spot
    Lasers or railguns or missiles or fleets
    Bow to Minmatar
    Bow to Minmatar
    Bow to Minmatar Roc!

  2. I really can’t stay (Mynxee, it’s cold outside)
    I’ve got to fly ‘way (Mynxee, it’s cold outside)
    The roaming has been (I hoped that you’d come along)
    So very fun (There’s a Mackinaw, It’s mining ice)

    The Hellcats will start to worry (Come on Mynxee, what’s your hurry)
    The Bastards want to go on a roam (Listen to those cannons fire)
    So really, I’d better hurry (It’s a hulk, He’s mining without worry)
    Well, maybe just a gank or two more (We’ll roam till we start to tire)

    The pirates will know (Mynxee, it’s fun out here)
    The militia will grow,(Roc Wieler don’t know no fear)
    See how I frown? (Your guns are just cooling down)
    These guy can’t spell (Local chat just said, “u got o hel”)

    I oughta say no, no, no Roc (I’ve got this Nightmare target locked)
    At least I’m gonna say that I tried (This Firetail’s the source of my pride)
    I really can’t stay (Oh Mynxee, don’t hold out)
    Oh, but it’s cold outside

    I simply must leave (It’s cold outside)
    Log out of Eve (Mynxee, it’s cold outside)
    The roaming has gone (So lucky that you came along)
    Without a loss (I like looking at your exaust)

    The Hellcats will be suspicious (I’m not trying to be malicious)
    The Bastards will be making some noise (I ain’t worried about those boys)
    My blog reader’s mind’s are vicious (They’ll understand if you’re expeditious)
    Well maybe just a gank or four more (Never got so many kills before)

    I’ve got quite a trip (Myxnee, you’ll freeze out there)
    Say, lend me a ship (Lets kill some more things out here)
    You’ve really been good (Baby I’m misunderstood)
    My piracy is overdue (Baby I can pirate some too)

    There’s gonna be talk tomorrow (Well, watch as this battleship blows)
    At least there will be many complaints (The militia doesn’t have such constraints)
    I really can’t stay (Get over that hold out)
    Oh, but Mynxee it’s cold outside

  4. (To Jingle Bells)

    Warping threw new Eden
    With a corp-a on my ship
    Past the planets I go
    To tear threw a gate camp
    I make it threw low sec a
    But not threw nulsec b
    I just got a free trip from
    Roc and his fleet
    Ohhh gate camps suck, I got lag,
    Sentry guns are bull.
    I’m just gonna whine tell they fix this game.
    Tough shit go play wow.

    (White Christmas)

    I’m dreaming of a Titan killmail,
    Just like the ones I’ve heard about,
    Where dreadnaughts glisten and
    Cariers undock to hear
    Big explosions in space.

    I’m dreaming of a titan killmail
    With every blogpost roc writes
    May your turets be loaded and locked
    And may all your killmails be bright.

  5. Let it Snow

    Oh the weather outside is frightful
    And our fire burns so spiteful
    It’s the only life we know
    Let us go! Let us go! Let us go!

    The masters don’t want us stopping
    Else we’re in for a cropping
    The fires burn way down low
    Spare the rope! Spare the rope! Spare the rope!

    As we finally lie for the night
    The door suddenly burns bright
    A man stands where it stood
    In black sunglasses and a hood

    The fires of the shuttle burn strong
    And as we rattle along
    We say goodbye to our old lives
    We’ll be back. We’ll be back. We’ll be back.

    Alternative:
    Damn to hell,
    Damn to hell,
    Burn those Amarr fiends;
    Roc’s last on, we fly along,
    And leave the world in flames!

  6. (to Santa baby)

    Santa baby, just slip a Gistii under the tree, for me
    Been an awful good girl
    Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

    Santa baby, a speedy faction frigate as well, Dramiel
    I’ll wait up for you dear
    Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

    Think of all the fun I’ve missed,
    Think of all the fellows that I haven’t kissed
    Next year I could be just as good
    If you check out my Christmas list

    Santa baby, I want a Halo set and thats not a lot
    Been an Angel all year
    Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

    Santa honey, one little thing I really need, the speed
    To leave Tak far behind,
    Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

    Santa cutie, fit my Ishtar with a nice tank, and gank
    Sign your ‘X’ on the bow
    Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

    Come and trim my Christmas tree,
    With plug decorations, maybe backlace links
    I really do believe in you,
    Let’s see if you believe in me

    Santa baby, a little thing I almost forgot, one Roc,
    I don’t mean like, a toy,
    Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

    Hurry down the chimney tonight

    Hurry, tonight.

  7. (to Frosty the Snowman)

    Roc Wieler the Colonel, a very fierce brutor.
    With a Gyrostabalizer and a Afterburner
    And three Autocannons full of ammo.
    Roc Wieler the Colonel, a milita legend they say,
    Had nerves of steel, and the Amarr
    Fear the time he came to play.
    There must have been some RF EMP in those
    old autocannons he fired.
    For when it hit their hulls
    Their ships went out of control
    O, Roc Wieler the Colonel,
    Was as jolly as could be,
    All the Amarr screamed while he just laughed
    As he killed some omens three.

    Ra-ta-tat ta Ra-ta-tat ta
    Ra-ta-tat ta Ra-ta-tat ta
    Look at Roc Wieler go,
    Boomidty boom
    Boomidty boom
    As he liberates the Matar

    Roc Wieler the Colonel knew
    That there was a big gatecamp
    So he smiled, “Lets go for a ride”
    We’ll have some fun
    I’ll make you run,
    And you’ll have to take my hide.
    With fresh ammo in his guns
    The amarr in their tech 1’s
    He flew through their gatecamp
    “Catch me if you can”
    He ran them right through low sec.
    He hit a gate,

    The lag made him wait,
    And the Amarr locked him and yelled “Point”
    The Battleships warped in, and his demise did begin
    But as his ship went down,
    He didn’t frown,
    He said, I’ll be back again some day.”
    Thumpetty thump thump,
    Boom Boom Boom
    Thumpety thump thump,
    Warp! Warp! Warp!
    Look at the Colonel go,

    Ra-ta-tat tat
    Ra-ta-tat tat
    Back to Rens he goes.

  8. (to Jingle Bells)

    With his ship so grand
    And fleet not to far
    He had a funny plan

    For Christmas in amarr

    He loaded all his guns

    Warped right to the field

    Watched the amarr run

    As he ripped through all their shields

    Jingle Eve jingle Eve

    Jingle all the way

    Oh what fun it is to kill some amarr to day

    Oh, Jingle Eve jingle Eve

    Jingle all the way

    Oh what fun it is to kill some amarr to day

    He shot that poor fool down

    Watched as he was popped

    And without a frown

    Another one was locked

    Jingle Eve jingle Eve

    Jingle all the way

    Oh what fun it is to watch

    Roc have fun this day

    Oh, Jingle Eve jingle Eve

    Jingle all the way

    Oh what fun it is to watch

    Roc kill amarr this day

  9. ‘Twas the night before patch day, when all through New Eden
    Not a ship was stirring, not even an Ibis;
    The secure cans were anchored by the belts with care,
    In hopes that Veldspar soon would be there;
    The pilots were nestled all snug in their pods,
    While visions of ship buffs danced in their heads;
    And Mynxee in her Rifter, and I in my Thrasher,
    Had just settled down for a long patch’s dock,
    When outside the station there arose such a clatter,
    I sprang from dock to see what was the matter.
    Away with camera drones I flew like a flash,
    Tearing past jetcans and secure containers advertising free cash.
    The sun on the axis of a newly-textured planet
    Gave the lustre of mid-day to cities below,
    When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    But a bloated Badger and nine tiny shuttle drawing near,
    Show Info revealed an old pilot, his bio so alive with wit,
    I knew in a moment it must be CCP Hammer, the git.
    More rapid than nanofags his coursers they came,
    And in local italicized, and emboldened, and he called them by name;
    “Now, Chronotis! now, Discordia! now, Soundwave, Nozh and Greyscale! On, Abathur! on Ytterbium! on, Fendahl and Fear!
    To the center of each hanger! to the tower of each POS!
    Now balance away! balance away! balance away all!”
    As carebear Hulks that before the pirate Hurricane flee,
    When they meet with a PvPer, warp to the station,
    So into the station the coursers they flew,
    With the Badger full of ship buffs, and CCP Hammer too.
    And then, in a twinkling, I heard from inside the station
    The ranting and raving of each dev.
    As I docked my Thrasher back into station, and looked around,
    Down the hanger CCP Hammer came with MWD.
    He was fit all in faction, from his highslots to his lowslots,
    And his fitting speckled with deadspace and officer to boot;
    A bundle of ships he had flung into his cargo,
    And he looked like a trader ready to sell on market.
    His ships — how they twinkled! their buffs so sleek!
    His True Sansha were pwnzors, his Blood Raider OP,Droll Guristas were changed from useless to hard to beat!
    The sinister Serpentis were altered from novel to dominating,
    While Angel Cartel evolved to a nanofag’s wildest dream,
    Whose falloff exceeded any Scorch fit FOTM!
    Navy frigates saw love too, rising from meek to mighty,
    While new navy battleships vied for ascendancy.
    Titans lost their DD, which was right by me,
    And I laughed when I saw the Nagflar; why bother? not me!
    With a wink in local and at twist of his ship,
    CCP Hammer deployed the changes, with remarkable haste and efficiency.
    He wrote not a word, so taken by his work,
    Updating all the ships, sovereignty and even autocannons, what luck!
    Adjusting his headset aside of his mouth,
    He gave orders to his devs to finish updating and undock.
    They sprang from the station, and to his devs he gave a destination;
    Away they all flew away like interceptors from peril.
    But I heard him exclaim, ere he warped off grid,
    “Happy patch day to all, and to all a safe flight.”
    ~
    Roc shook and shuddered, his sweat sheathed body drawn into a ball,
    His jaw locked, his fists clenched, arms held close to a chest on fire.
    Eventually muscles slackened, racked sensations abated,
    The painful rumble of blood past ear reduced to a calm pace.
    Roc unfurled his tortured limbs, rising from the bed to sit,
    Promptly retching onto the floor what seemed all of his inards, and then some.
    Shaking his head to clear it, and rewarded with more vertigo than before,
    Roc swore solemnly to the vomit on the floor,
    “By Wensley’s balls, that’s the last time I mix Blue Pill with Drop.”

  10. *waves a tiny flag for his entry*
    go team haav0c!

    May be worth noting, I wrote that thing on my while selling very heavy christmas trees in the cold with no gloves n shorts? Because… I wanted to seem manly. Yeah. While writing poetry for an internet spaceship contest.
    *cough*
    If it helps, I was totally thinking about how awesome Roc is… and stuff…. yeah.
    yeah, my money’s on the Mynxee one… damn inferiority complex.
