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 ...

Polarisation without purpose

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Let's go! Out to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, where two drones are all that my directional scanner cares to show me. No tower, no ships, no wrecks. Those poor little drones, left all alone in space few pilots will pass through. At least there are two of them, ...

Enemies of your enemies are your friends

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Following the successful ambush of the Noctis salvager, somewhat unexpected by the fleet who thought our system was clear of pilots, I warp back to their C2 K162 to monitor the situation. The only surprise in seeing the pod of the Noctis jump through is in how long it took ...

No loot for me

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

A new signature in the home system isn't much to get excited about, but performing a blanket scan and also seeing a ship is, particularly when it looks like I should be alone. Warping to get within directional scanner range of the ship has core probes visible but no ship. ...

Taking a guilt-trip to low-sec

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Leaving our static wormhole behind, I see a pretty standard tower lacking ships on my directional scanner in the neighbouring class 3 system. Warping in what I hope is the opposite direction in order to launch probes flings me in to a second tower, but as this one is also ...

Finally fighting

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Maybe the opportunity for a scrap isn't quite over. Two of the small fleet the occupants of a class 2 w-space system placed on the wormhole connecting our two systems have warped clear, but one stays. The Cyclone battlecruiser remains on the wormhole for now, and I see on my ...

Watching a ship go out

Saturday, January 11th, 2014

There's been another signature explosion in our home w-space system. It can't all be gas, not all three new signatures. Performing a blanket scan, as is good practice even when coming on-line, sees no ships in the system, so I get to scanning the signatures. Two gas sites, one wormhole. ...

Die, discovery scanner, die

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

Aww, man. It's just me at home. Who am I going to play with? I'll see if the neighbours are available. Some ships are visible on my directional scanner in the class 3 system through our static wormhole, so maybe the neighbours are available. But changing my overview settings sees ...
