Stale constellations

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

There is no change in the home system beyond the standard wormhole churn. I say hello to people, delete and move bookmarks, and scan and resolve the new static wormhole. Jumping through to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system and updating my directional scanner sees the pretty normal sight of ...

What we have here is a failure to think straight

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

I come home from another extended w-space constellation to three Raven Navy Issue battleships, a Basilisk logistics ship, and Noctis salvager visible on my directional scanner. And, of course, all the Sleeper wrecks that are made by such a fleet. Here's me scanning wormholes and exploring dozens of systems over ...

Terror of w-space

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Hello, I have an invitation to join a fleet, from party unknown. What the hell, I accept, mysterious stranger. I make sure my cloaky Loki strategic cruiser is pointed in some arbitrary direction and moving at full speed before I do, on the unlikely chance that the fleet is in ...

Rudely interrupting a rock survey

Monday, March 4th, 2013

No new losses. Today is going to be a good day. Scanning the home system shows that the Sleepers are even moving back in, which is good too, I suppose. And only the one wormhole means that we've had no capsuleer visitors. Let's see if I can be a visitor ...

In it for the explosions

Saturday, January 5th, 2013

Decisions, decisions. Which way to turn in the w-space constellation? Behind me is a class 5 w-space system, holding a K162 through which I podded a gasser in class 6 w-space, whose home system beyond that C6 I have yet to find. But ahead of me, in our neighbouring class ...

Asymmetric action

Friday, June 15th, 2012

My glorious leader tells me we have two wormholes again today. Our static connection to class 3 w-space is joined by a K162 from class 5 w-space. As Fin found them, Fin gets first pick, and she chooses to head upstream to C5a. Me, I float downstream like a dead ...

Stacking up the stealth bombers

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Maybe today I'll go out exploring. Yesterday's static wormhole was already in its death throes the first time I warped to it, stopping me in my tracks. Although it collapsed whilst Fin and I were Sleepering, ostensibly creating a new wormhole in its place waiting to be found today, the ...

A bit of experience, a bit of luck

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Oh dear. That Cheetah I saw earlier has mutated. It's no longer a covert operations boat but a ten-ship battle fleet. I went to empire space, for what turned out to be some disappointing ratting, having spotted the Cheetah on my directional scanner as I was leaving the home system, ...

Avoiding and discouraging hostilities

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

Another early scouting expedition finds me in an occupied but inactive class 3 w-space system. That's just fine, because it means I can take a good look around our neighbour's home now and come back to surprise them later, no probes required. At least, that's the plan. I locate the ...

Nudging another Noctis

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Hi, w-space, what's happening? Not much, Penny! That's okay, I'm not going to ask about your TPS reports, I just want a poke around tonight's constellation, see what's out there. There's little left at home apart from anomalies, the static wormhole being the only signature, but jumping in to our ...
