- 1974: Eric Clapton recorded "I Shot the Sheriff."
- 1994: Nelson Mandela was sworn in as South Africa's first black president
Ya, ya, I'm kind of stretching for an excuse/theme for a roam!
In keeping with my quickly-becoming-a-tradition Holiday (although other than this being Confederate Memorial Day in North and South Carolina, it doesn't seem to be a holiday today) roams, this roam is open to everyone, you do not have to be an Alumni to attend this roam (although it helps!)
So grab some alcohol and come join us for a giggle-inducing roam through nullsec to make lots of shiny explosions!!
We'll be keeping it simple (and cheap!) and go with my usual kitchen-sink Frigate and Destroyer gang again!
So set up a few Frigates or Destroyers of your choice. In your highs, fit for as much damage as you can, aim for a 6km-10km optimal. For your mids, fit a prop mod (afterburner/microwarp drive) if you can and in your spare mid, fit some sort of ECM or tackle (damp, track, point, scram or web). In your lows fit a damage control unit, and whatever else you want. If you're feeling lazy, just use any of the T1/T2/Alumni frigate fits found on our Wiki by clicking here.
Destroyers: Have a spare medium shield extender available in Berta in case we have some Logisitic frigs with us. If we have logistic pilots with us, we'll swap out one of your mids for a small buffer tank.
Logistics: If you want to fly one of the Logistic frigates for this roam, you are more than welcome to! Fly one of the shield Logistic frigs if you decide this is the role you wish to fly. Stick to the Logistic frigates - if you bring a logistic cruiser, you're really asking to be primaried!
Skimishers: Alumni are welcome to fly Skirmish if they wish, please state so in your sign-up post below if you are interested in flying as a skirmisher.
Planning on roaming for about two hours. For the hard-core don't be surprised if we keep going after the fleet
- Date and Time: May 10th, 2013 at 21:00 Eve time.
- Duration: 2+ hours. Don't be surprised if it runs longer
- Location: Berta. Sendaya for flashies
- Price: Free for everyone!
- Fleet Commander: Greygal. Be afraid, be very afraid...
- Maximum Attendance: Really don't have a maximum, but our TS server is limited to 100 so... no more than that!
- Voice Coms: This roam will be held on Agony's Teamspeak server. Information on connecting to it can be found here.
- In-game Chat Room: Please join the Agony Public chat room for fleet invites at the start of the roam.
This roam is OPEN TO EVERYONE. You do NOT need to be an Alumni to join this roam - it's wide-open to the public!
If you have never flown on an Agony roam before, please read this article so you understand our communication philosophy - we like our coms to stay reasonably clear and clutter-free. Being that this will be a somewhat casual, alcohol-influenced roam, I'll be fairly lenient on com's discipline for the uninitiated, but I don't want our coms to be a zoo, either.
Please RSVP to this party by posting below using our usual sign-up format:

I would really like it if everyone can sign up in advance so I have a good idea of our numbers and needed support, although I won't turn anyone away who
