Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

Even he, to whom most things that most people would think were pretty smart were pretty dumb, thought it was pretty smart.

This weekend saw an increase in activity on the DUST 514 Beta front that got me thinking.  Now, I realize everyone reading this might not be all that interested in DUST, but I am.  To those of you who aren't, I would encourage you to start a blog of your very own where you have complete editorial control over the content.  Like I do here.

Bob Barker's Revenge

The white Krikkit warship was parked among the stark gray crags of the asteroid, alternately flaring under arc lights or disappearing in shadow. The black shadows cast by the hard rocks danced together in wild choreography as the arc lights swept around them.

Ripard Teg recently put up a post on Jester's Trek called The price is right discussing the recent increase of the price of ships in EVE.  If you haven't read that yet, go do so now.  Not only is it a good read, but the rest of this post isn't likely to make much sense without that context.  What the rest of this post is likely to do is respond to a question he posed there and include some arm-chair game designing on my part.
