Rodents of Unusual Size? I don’t believe they exist…


Well, we do. And we do a damn sight more than just exist. The Rodents were formed in 2009 as a corp for likeminded people to kick back, shoot some fools and enjoy the sights and sounds of Eve.

Many of us came from larger corps and alliances but had become disillusioned with the increasing way in which these bodies were becoming more and more complex, moving steadily further from the central concept that Eve is just a game, not a job. ROUS quickly became a place where people could live with a common understanding of what it means to be free from these expectations, but still be successful as a corp, and have a laugh all at the same time.

It’s hard to describe what it means to be a Rodent, or what we’re looking for in prospective Rodents. But we know it when we see it. We’re not superfriends, but we do respect the loyalty of our corpmates, and stand by each other as friends.

What we do…

:arrow: Blow stuff up
:arrow: Wander across New Eden as we see fit
:arrow: Whatever it takes to get by
:arrow: Highsec wars
:arrow: Think about blowing stuff up
:arrow: PVP, missions, plexes, wormholes, invention, trading.
:arrow: Blow stuff up

What we don’t do…

:arrow: Roleplay
:arrow: Politics
:arrow: 0.0 sovereignty
:arrow: Blob wars (rats are allergic to lag)

Sound like the sort of place you might like to settle? Join us in ROUS-PUBLIC in-game to meet the Rodents. Come for the random conversation, stay for the pew!

========================================

Where does the name "Rodents of Unusual Size" come from?

The name comes from The Princess Bride - both a book and a 1987 movie. Note: the Princess Diaries is a completely different movie, but we wouldn't necesserally write that off completely. Anne Hathaway. Need I say more. Need. I. Say. More.

The Rodents of Unusual Size are giant rats which live in the Fire Swamp. Many don't believe they exist, much to their surprise when they have their eyes scratched out by them.

Pirates, swordplay, revenge, scheming villains, rodents of unusual size, and true love is what the Princess Bride is all about. This carries through to our corp - even the true love.
