To scan or not to scan

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Our old sites have died. Viva the new sites! I'm tempted to call the abundance of new sites a result of a signature explosion, but there being only four of them doesn't sound too explosiony. Then again, we only occasionally see even a couple of new signatures appear overnight in ...

Opening a wormhole for it to be closed

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Nope, nothing. Lurking by the K162 in our home system, which took back to class 5 w-space a few bits of metal that resembled a Noctis salvager and a thief in a Venture frigate, doesn't spit anything back at me. Not even a scout comes through to see what I'm ...

Trying to be a disrupting influence

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

What's out there today? A tower and no ships in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, how novel. Scanning the seven anomalies and five signatures resolves three wormholes and a bit of gas, and as the first wormhole I warp to turns out to be the static exit to low-sec ...

Finding bored pilots

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

No more relic sites for me for a while. I would say I've had my fill of them in the past few days. If I must do one, it will be because I've scanned a stupidly expensive blueprint in one of the containers. Then again, knowing me, if I have ...

Overkill Sleeper fleet

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

The home system is back to holding me and the static wormhole, at least as long as it takes me to resolve the wormhole and jump through to see what our neighbours are up to. Not much. A tower and complete lack of ships appears on my directional scanner, and ...

Just about making it home

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

I was going to scan, thinking the destruction of a planet-gooing Viator would have subdued the locals, but a pilot at the tower swaps back to his Crane. I can't quite believe a second transport would be thrown in front of my ship, just to see if I was actually ...

Not much of anything

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

I'm hoping to be lucky tonight. Some poor timing had my ship just crossing paths with a couple of potential targets yesterday, so perhaps I can be more decisive tonight. 'Perhaps', right. With that kind of decisiveness I think I know how the evening's going to pan out. The home ...

From a near-catch to nearly caught

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Aii's somewhere. I can sense his presence. I can also see the bookmarks leading from home, through the neighbouring class 3 w-space system, and out to low-sec. And that's it, apparently. 'Nothing interesting', says Aii. Shall we kill the wormhole? 'Okay.' So Aii comes home and we throw some massive ...

Two scans is too many

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Hop, hoppity, hop. High-sec stargates are easy. Twenty-three of them becomes a bit boring, though. Still, it gets me home, and with less effort and randomness than scanning for arbitrary wormholes. I would be home somewhat earlier were it not for the gimboid who collapsed their static connection that I ...

Holding back

Sunday, May 19th, 2013

Empty ships and Sleeper explosions yesterday. What today? For a start, a second wormhole in the home system crops up in my scanning results, giving me a class 2 w-space system to explore beyond the K162. And jumping through sees a small fleet on my directional scanner. A peculiar fleet, ...
