Not seeing red

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

There are reds in the constellation, and they may be a little upset. I've just turned one of their scouts in to a corpse. Of course, they may alternatively be pleased that I taught him the importance of not being seen, in a suitably harsh manner, but even if that's ...

Trying to catch a Womble

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Fresh in space, all looks clear. Our gas site has been swept away, and although a new signature has popped up I wouldn't be surprised it if were just replacement gas. I launch probes, perform a blanket scan, and, huh. There are a dozen or more ships along with clouds ...

Almost something happening

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Losing a Bustard transport full of fuel and buying a replacement has somehow cost us a wad of ISK. Therefore, my plan tonight is to make some ISK back, nominally by thoroughly exploding whole sites of Sleepers. Two new signatures in the home system have other ideas, though, particularly as ...

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 ...

Extra time for extra signatures

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Back through class 2 w-space. The Helios covert operations boat is probably still running idle loops around its tower, the Impairor frigate motionless nearby. In to class 3 w-space, our neighbouring system, and is that a new signature the discovery scanner is blinking at me? It's not immediately obvious, what ...

Mobile boring unit

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

I'm about to recall my probes, but my curiosity gets the better of me. What type of static wormhole does this class 5 w-space system hold? It's not a particularly interesting question, admittedly, but there may be a reason why the system is unoccupied. I have time to find out, ...

Random access

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

A glorious leader and some bookmarks is a good combination to come on-line to. Fin's now busy hauling between w-space and high-sec, as we have an exit conveniently close to Amarr. I hope she remembers that we're currently at war. 'Always', she says, and points me towards an unexplored class ...

Hail Mary on a marauder

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

We retreat. Mick and HR head back through the wormhole to the home system, and I am in a tactical spot some distance from the wormhole in this class 4 w-space system. Hostile ships mill around the wormhole in the distance but they don't follow my colleagues through; they are ...

Pausing on the way home

Sunday, April 20th, 2014

I have a plan. I got podded last night, under frustrating circumstances, and will be starting the evening in high-sec. I plan to buy some cheap ammunition, throw a capacitor-sucking shield booster on to my new Loki strategic cruiser, and cruise high-sec anomalies popping rats in a therapeutic manner, hopefully ...

Finding Impass

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

There's no change in space, as far as I can tell. That's a little over 14 AU, for what it's worth, and I'm fairly sure space extends at least a little beyond that. Perhaps I should take a better look around than merely punching my directional scanner in a safe spot ...
