Welcome to Jester's Trek.
I'm your host, Jester. I've been an EVE Online player for about six years. One of my four mains is Ripard Teg, pictured at left. Sadly, I've succumbed to "bittervet" disease, but I'm wandering the New Eden landscape (and from time to time, the MMO landscape) in search of a cure.

Take your game up a notch

Since my promise (or threat) to increase my blogging frequency a bit, I decided to move the blogs and websites I'm linking to from the bottom of the page to the right side of the page below the archive.

This gives both sections room to spread out a bit.  I've already started combing through my EVE website list looking for additional sites I want to add.  I want to concentrate on factual sites, general references, and stuff that's pretty newbie-friendly, plus the obligatory links to Failheap and Kugu.  If you can think of any obvious websites I'm missing along those lines, please feel free to make suggestions.  I'm looking to expand that section to 20 sites or so.  At this time, I don't particularly want to link to really specialized sites, though I might start a second list of links for that kind of thing later.

Which brings me to my linked blogs.  I've decided I'm gonna split my linked blogs into two sections.  The first will be "Important but Infrequent": bloggers that I think have important things to say but are rare posters.  People like Mord Fiddle, Seleene, Trebor, Mynxee, TeaDaze, and the like will go into this section.  That will allow me and people who visit here to keep an eye out for posts from them without cluttering up my main blog section.

For the main section, I'd like to list a dozen or so total blogs.  I could obviously just start linking to blogs in the EVE Blog Pack, but I don't want to do that.  I'm already linking to both EVEOGANDA and the Blog Pack itself.  Besides, I want to do something a bit different with my linked blogs.  I read a ton of blogs right now.  I directly follow about 15 or so, and indirectly follow another 15.  Most are EVE Blog Pack members today (and most, amusingly, are pirate blogs(1), but that's another story).  But the typical posting frequency of the blogs I read is four or five times a month.

I'd like to link some blogs from writers who are willing to take their game up a notch.  And given the number of people cheerfully willing to tell me how "retarded" I am, I'd also like to link some blogs from writers who really know what they are about when it comes to EVE Online.

Are you?  Do you?  Link in the comments, please.  :-)

(1) And most of those are Tuskers.  Go Tuskers!


  1. Well, it's all in-character roleplay and it's not like I ever talk about anything important in-game or meta, but just for accountability's sake, I'm going to link mine here. I'm trying to be moar Ripard Teg and post on a consistent and frequent basis. Gotta beat that apathy! I've got too much I want to write about and explore to let it slow me down!


    I don't expect you to include it with your main blogs. This is more for me than anything else.

    Keep up the posting!

  2. My blog: http://fleeonsight.blogspot.com/

    Posting frequency varies dramatically depending on how busy RL is and how much time I have left to write after I play Eve. At the moment, I'm going through a series of "lectures" on specific topic areas such as overheating etc. and the right way to do it.

  3. Oh yeah you're totally retarded and I'm so much better than you.

    Jk. I wish I could keep up a posting frequency as you do but there's not much interesting to write about that isn't covered to death in every other place, the most you'll get is a story about how I found someone stupid and fucked them over every week or so. haha.

    It should link through my name to my google profile but otherwise it's http://planetarygenocide.blogspot.com

  4. I am, yes I do.
    Here you go :)






















  5. Always amazed at how well informed I can be on EvE just by reading what is posted here.

    But it is hard to forward topics to you. For example http://www.develop-online.net/features/1461/Dust-514-The-PS3s-most-important-game

    (Forum Thread https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=262465#post262465 )
    Intreting Dust write up. Where is the best way to forward these to you?

  6. I've got a blog where I write up reviews of my experiences and a few other odds and ends Eve related. Currently I'm on vacation for another week but after that I should start picking up posting frequency a bit.


  7. Ooh Ooh Ooh! Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!


  8. I do a Faction War blog here:

  9. I'd like to nominate my little blog, a mixture of out of character posts with the occasional in character post mixed in.
