EVE Rooks and Kings: Message in a Bottle

When people speak about Chinese internet culture, the subject of imposed national firewalls is never far behind. Indeed, the 'Great Firewall' of China is linked to the (then) legal issues that required the creation of a separate Serenity server in the first place.

I should mention that when Fulcrum first contacted me in the ‘Ironclad’ era in late 2009/early 2010 or thereabouts, it was a Guardian group he was seeking to build and perfect. While this short video deals with tools that involve people screaming a lot, he has adapted quite a range of our meta and tactics over there, and hopefully I can share some more of that in future.

Some of the notions touched on here – to do with the direct meeting of the two worlds in some form or other – may never happen. Still, it’s a time when dinosaurs are running rampant in Deklein, goonhammers are being forged, banks are funding epic wars (okay, that happens in life too) and Dan & co. wield the reddit pen as a sword. So perhaps anything is possible.
