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 ...

Biting hard in to the bait

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Out to low-sec, launch probes, and scan. That Drake battlecruiser in the second class 3 w-space system in our constellation is doing nothing, and as I don't want to join him in that endeavour I'm reverting to Plan B. There are two extra signatures in this low-sec system, which I ...

Getting old reactions

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

I leave one class 2 w-space system for a second, crossing high-sec space to get to the other K162. Except, oh, it's not a K162 but an R943 outbound connection. That's disappointing, as the idiotic discovery scanner will have blinked the signature of this wormhole to any active pilots inside ...

Opening wormholes considered harmful

Monday, October 14th, 2013

An early poke around w-space looking for bleary-eyed pilots has the predictable start of my jumping to our neighbouring class 3 system to find nothing of interest. There's a tower, of course, but no ships are to be seen. Three planets initially out of range of my directional scanner hold ...

Getting reactions without a reaction

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

I'm scanning in a huff, having missed hitting a hauler in a case of horrible happenstance. I only continue scanning in the hopes that I will find a better opportunity further down the chain, which, considering I am in a class 1 w-space system, does not seem terribly likely. But ...
