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 ...

Replacing the Manticore

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

There's nothing to report on coming on-line. Gas, anomalies, the static wormhole. I resolve the wormhole and jump to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system hoping to find more, but only the black hole is obvious from the K162. My directional scanner is clear. It's a big system, though, so ...

Ever get the feeling you're being watched?

Monday, April 21st, 2014

You never can tell who's watching you in w-space. The scout in an Anathema covert operations boat of this class 3 w-space system has moved back in to the force field of his tower, after being decloaked by a colleague in a shuttle, and wisely, considering I was watching. Another ...

After the ambush

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

I'm out of the pocket seconds after the successful ambush. I don't feel a particular need to be in any great rush, though, not with my reduced-range directional scanner still showing no one coming to help. Regardless, it is good practice to clear the pocket and get out of harm's ...

Lesser-spotted Noctis sighting

Friday, March 14th, 2014

Let's see what kind of trouble I can get myself in to today. Nothing at home, just our new static wormhole and a relic site. How about next door? Jumping to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system and updating my directional scanner looks both good and bad: a Noctis salvager, ...

Opening a wormhole for it to be closed

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Nope, nothing. Lurking by the K162 in our home system, which took back to class 5 w-space a few bits of metal that resembled a Noctis salvager and a thief in a Venture frigate, doesn't spit anything back at me. Not even a scout comes through to see what I'm ...

Diverting from a collapse

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Aww, man. All our home anomalies are gone, either plundered by parties unknown or activated in spite. If I could have been bothered to clear them myself I'd be upset. Instead, I'm more concerned about my ship staying responsive in space. It feels good so far! Let's see if jumping ...

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 ...

Another new whale

Saturday, January 4th, 2014

HR's been, scanned, and gone idle. Let me see what he's uncovered. Jumping to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system spies a tower and some ships on my directional scanner. The two shuttles aren't interesting, but the Drake battlecruiser and Noctis salvager are, at least until I check for wrecks ...

Bagging a barge

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

I've been away for a few days, returning to w-space with a sense of expectation about potential changes. What's up, space? Gas sites are in the home system and our neighbouring class 3 system has been poked but not scanned by HR, who is on-line. It's not much different from ...
