Stale wormholes leads to Sleepers

Monday, July 21st, 2014

I'm following behind Mick's scouting again today, seeing what he's found. Ah, our static wormhole. Good man. Jumping through and updating my directional scanner sees nothing in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, and checking my notes has my last visit twenty months ago. Since then, two towers have been ...

There's always time for a salvager

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

Back in to my Proteus strategic cruiser, looking for more wormholes. That elusive connection to empire space that doesn't take me through a notorious low-sec gate camp must be somewhere, although it's not like I absolutely must find it this evening or our tower will go off-line from wanting fuel. ...

Looking for high-sec

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

I get my pod back to the home system, unfortunately without a fuel-laden Bustard transport ship wrapped around me. That's not a problem at all, certainly not one that needs to be solved tonight, but, even so, I have this compulsion to continue my efforts to drag some fuel in ...

Dipping through a dying wormhole

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

I'm here, and so is Fin. I think. 'C3a has a high-sec exit that's nine hops from Amarr, and a wormhole to a C5. I've not been to the C5.' So my glorious leader has scanned and is taking advantage of a fair connection in our neighbouring class 3 w-space ...

Crossing with a Crane

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

Back in my Loki strategic cruiser, mostly ignoring the customs office-bashing fleet in a class 2 w-space system behind me, I head towards our static wormhole and jump to the neighbouring class 3 system. My directional scanner gives me the all-clear from the K162, so I launch probes, blanket the ...

Dying to a ghost

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

I'm looking for some excitement in space. Or, I dunno, maybe just a way to pass some time. No signature churn in the home system gives me only our static wormhole to resolve, and I'm on my way. Jumping to our neighbouring class 3 system and updating my directional scanner ...

No Mammoth, no ghost site

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Two new gas sites should keep Aii happily busy for a little while. Let's see if our static wormhole can do the same for me. Jumping to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system looks pretty ordinary, with a tower and no ships visible on my directional scanner, so I do ...

Not sucking on an empty siphon

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Exiting our neighbouring class 3 w-space system through its static wormhole puts me not in the wasteland that is high-sec Aridia but a system in the Kador region. I'm actually glad that I managed to mis-identify that wormhole colouring. I'm also glad that there are five extra signatures in the ...

Startled by a signature

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

I hope I have better luck at staying in space tonight. And with the stability of wormholes. I get to test the latter immediately, as scanning our home system sees only the static connection has changed, and I warp to the wormhole to see it in rude health. Already I'm ...

Impotent against Imicuses

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

Scan, explore, see what trouble I can find. Sure, I'll probably just run away from it like a scaredy-cat, but that's part of the appeal. Nothing jumps out at me in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, being empty of occupation and free from activity. That's kind of welcome, once ...
