Showing some willing

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

One site down, a dozen to go. I didn't even clear the site myself, new recruit Matha did, in a Drake battlecruiser, of all ships. That's commitment. We should probably work out some way to pay her. 'A shuttle a month', says Fin later, which seems reasonable enough. Rather than ...

Managing to kill a low-sec rat

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

The barely scratched Epithal hauler is back in his tower, where he sits for a moment before going off-line. I dunno why, his stupid ship will let him collect all his goo with little threat. But he's gone. The Helios covert operations boat returns from wherever, and is joined by ...

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, ...

Messing with a Magnate

Friday, January 31st, 2014

How's the home system looking tonight? Pretty normal. No ghost sites, a bit of gas, the static wormhole. That's about it. I resolve the wormhole, jump through to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system, and update my directional scanner. A tower and no ships. This evening is just stuffed full ...

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 ...

Isolation and return

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Our industrialists are on-line. What's happening? 'Nada. C3 was dead. Low-sec had pirates camping a gate.' My glorious leader Fin indicates that our current options are pretty limited. Shall we collapse our wormhole and clear some anomalies for fun and profit? 'Sounds like a plan.' Let's do it. My glorious ...

Trying to join in

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

No new signatures means no new sites, as well as no surprise wormholes. I simply resolve our static connection and jump to tonight's neighbouring class 3 w-space system, where I'm guessing my directional scanner will show me a tower and no ships. I'm a Buzzard wrong, which is better than ...

Sharks follow bait

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

I'm back again, to see what potential invaders/lodgers are up to, if Transmission Lost are poking through their static wormhole in to our home system some more, and what, if anything, is happening in our unoccupied neighbouring class 3 w-space system. My glorious leader updates me with TL's movements, which ...

Settling for Sleepers

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

My glorious leader has been exploring. Indeed, the w-space constellation has already been mapped by Fin, having worked her way through our neighbouring class 3 system and out to empire space. So what's the plan? 'Roll, I think', Fin says, suggesting that we collapse our wormhole to make all her ...

Penny in the middle

Monday, February 4th, 2013

More signatures light up my combat scanning probes in the home system. The same number of anomalies remain, and the signatures are weak, so will be Sleepers and not wormholes. All looks quiet. I resolve the static connection and jump to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system to look for ...
