Hail Mary on a marauder

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

We retreat. Mick and HR head back through the wormhole to the home system, and I am in a tactical spot some distance from the wormhole in this class 4 w-space system. Hostile ships mill around the wormhole in the distance but they don't follow my colleagues through; they are ...

Aiming for an Armageddon

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Jumping to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system isn't anywhere near as interesting as finding the dash system connecting behind us. One tower, no ships, one salvage drone, no wrecks. It isn't inspiring, but you can't judge a system by its d-scan result. I warp out to launch probes, but ...

Curiosity isolates the Penny

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Okay, that was a nice ambush, Penny. The home system is safe. Let's scan, find out what we've got today. Clearly there's one other wormhole, but I also find gas, a relic site, and a third wormhole to accompany our static connection. It's initially surprising to find the third wormhole, ...

Delaying the decision

Monday, January 20th, 2014

People are in the home system, and they seem to be expecting me. This can't be good. Oh sure, they are my glorious leader and Aii, but what could they want of me? I ask what's up, and, more importantly, what the new signature is. 'The static wormhole.' Mmm. But ...

Watching a ship go out

Saturday, January 11th, 2014

There's been another signature explosion in our home w-space system. It can't all be gas, not all three new signatures. Performing a blanket scan, as is good practice even when coming on-line, sees no ships in the system, so I get to scanning the signatures. Two gas sites, one wormhole. ...

Die, discovery scanner, die

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

Aww, man. It's just me at home. Who am I going to play with? I'll see if the neighbours are available. Some ships are visible on my directional scanner in the class 3 system through our static wormhole, so maybe the neighbours are available. But changing my overview settings sees ...

Three go out, only one can return

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

I turn around from the K346 to warp back to the tower. The fleet has returned through the null-sec wormhole to their home class 3 w-space system, and we didn't manage to catch any of the three ships. It didn't help that they had the sense to get a scout ...

Wormholes or nothing

Monday, November 4th, 2013

No change at home has my ignoring what I already know about, resolving our static wormhole, and jumping to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system to see what's shaking. Nothing within range of my directional scanner, and perhaps nothing at all with only two planets out of range. Launching probes ...

Bad scouting bags a gooer

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

I don't know what to do. I'm not going to sit on this wormhole any longer, that's for sure. Well, no longer than it takes me to work out a plan for the rest of the evening. The locals of this class 3 w-space system are not around, I've got ...

Getting fuel and waiting for nothing

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Last night was an adventure. Tonight starts the same way it started yesterday, with me and the static wormhole. I'll see where it takes me today. Ah, to a clear view from my directional scanner in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, and only one planet sitting out of range. ...
