This is more birthday art, this time for online buddy CMDR Taranava!
We have a joke about people that join MobiusPVE, attack players then feign ignorance. We call them Goldfish CDMRS, due to the perceived short memory of our “no PVP” rule. If you’re wondering why this is perceived as fishy (no pun intended), our group is all about no PvP. That’s the reason the group exists, and its very public knowledge of what it’s about. Someone joining Mobius then doing said actions are quickly scrutinized; you don’t join an well-known PvE server to do PvP.
That laid out, here we have Taranava taking care of unruly goldfish, Imperial Saber being put to good use. Having greeted them at the landing pad, she only finds out about the new players’ true origins, dispatching of them quickly.
This was actually based on another admin’s suggestion, requesting that I had her and some of her maids battling goldfish CMDRs. Looks like I may need to do a part 2 to fulfill his request.
I’ve been struggling with this for a few months, but finally found the motivation and the second wind to finish it how I’d like. More of CMDR Taranava and her awesome goodness; here, she poses with the mascot for the Fuel Rats, and online Elite: Dangerous community figurehead ObsidianAnt. With some recent events that came up, I found it no better time than now to get this done.
This was specifically done for the peeps on the Distant Worlds 2 Expedition, as most of those guys are explorers and suffer a lot when nonsense gankers wreck the party for everyone. Us Mobius peeps wish you the best on your massive journey, and always welcome you guys to play in our group as a safe haven if you need.

EDIT: This apparently got a little bigger than I thought it would! The head admin thought it was great enough to post to their official Twitter page.
So my online friend CDMR Taranava ran a “greeting card” contest with the Mobius PVE group; the prize? Two Galnet paint pack for the Anaconda. Me and CMDR Jack Webb were the lucky winners to walk away with said prizes.
Personally, I’m happy with how this came out. I see a few things that could be tweaked, and I did this on someone else’s PC as I took a desk break away from my normal computer for Christmas. I have some other gift art I need to get out of the way, but this came first as I forgot the contest ended Sunday. Oops. ;_;
