Missing mining by moments

Friday, September 19th, 2014

Well, ain't this place a geographical oddity? Exploring through a K162 wormhole from low-sec takes me to a class 2 w-space system with only two planets, anomalies scattered between them, but one planet hogging all of the signatures. It's a curious sight indeed. My directional scanner is clear of just ...

Crossing paths with a Sabre

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Hopping back in to my Proteus strategic cruiser to go scouting through our constellation, it's oddly comforting to be able to cloak again after a spell in a Golem marauder and a test firing in our Revelation dreadnought. No one can see me fly! Maybe I can sneak up on ...

It's referred to as the scanner overlay and not the 'discovery' scanner for good reason

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Another day absent, even more anomalies brazenly stolen from us. This is an outrage! The perpetrators really ought to have dumped a container with 30% of their plunder at our tower, just as a basic nicety for taking advantage of our system. I normally do, or try to, or maybe ...

Finding a cloaky Protey

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

I'll just have a poke around tonight, I think. There's not much to see in the home system, giving me a simple start. Our gas sites have been blown away by the solar wind and no new ones have come to replace them. I have just the new static wormhole ...

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 ...
