Systems shape the way we play, and that's why I find beauty in them. I’m a ludite - I study play.

Okay, been thinking about the "MMOs in a museum" thing for awhile now. I present this song as an alternative museum exhibit for EVE Online.

This is a song composed and performed by an EVE player, and requires a little bit of game context to understand.

Firstly, Providence is null-security region in EVE Online. That means that it has above-grade valuable resources, but has no player protections. PvP is very go.
Because players like to blow each other up and even get to loot each other when they do, players are forced to circle their wagons and frequently don't trust anyone outside their ranks. If even an unknown person shows up, the assumption is "hostile."
