No Mammoth, no ghost site

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Two new gas sites should keep Aii happily busy for a little while. Let's see if our static wormhole can do the same for me. Jumping to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system looks pretty ordinary, with a tower and no ships visible on my directional scanner, so I do ...

Flying escort

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

There are a couple of cruiser wrecks out there someone, in this class 5 w-space system. The Gila and Osprey got destroyed by forces unknown, and I'm keen to find out if the wrecks were looted by their buddy, who survived in a Ferox battlecruiser. An anomaly is roughly in ...

Telexplosions

Monday, January 6th, 2014

Calling International Rescue! It's time to bring my glorious leader home. But there's been a signature explosion in the home system. Is it lots of gas? Or maybe wormholes offering more routes for an isolated Fin? That's pretty optimistic of me, I must be in a good mood. I'll scan ...

Less of an odyssey

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

Moving a literally unexaggerated thousand bookmarks of wormholes from my active folders to the 'old' folder, I undo in seconds all the effort of yesterday to start today's exploration. It's nice and easy in the home system again, with a known site to ignore and the replacement static connection to ...

Poking some w-space systems

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

I have time for a quick poke around our w-space constellation, see if I can get in to trouble. I'm helped on my way too, as our home system has been scanned a couple of hours previously, although it looks like whoever did that only did so for reference. Our ...

Scrapping over a Scorpion

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

That Orca isn't coming back to finish collapsing the wormhole. I can't think why. Surely it has nothing to do with the pilot having seen my cloaky Loki lurking nearby. Just because industrial command ships are natural prey of strategic cruisers doesn't mean anything. But he's not coming back. It's ...

Tracking a Tengu

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

'The wormhole's unopened, and we waited one day too long to run our barracks.' That's a shame. We had a nice pile of anomalies built up in our home w-space system, and we knew we should probably make a bit of time to clear them of Sleepers and rake in ...

Sucking at gas

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

'...getting all explodey in the Widow.' Um, what have I stumbled in to? 'Nothing to see here', says Fin, 'and don't look at our recent losses'. I'll try not to, although curiosity gets the better of me and I see the death of my black ops ship. Poor Neko Ninja, ...

Restoring Penny preferences

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Damn, this Minmatar technology is flaky. After spending a day trying to get my ship on-line I've had to restore all of its systems to the factory default settings. This is going to be painful. At least I'm somewhat prepared, after previous failures, with a saved overview file that I ...

Simple kills for a simple capsuleer

Friday, January 18th, 2013

I'm back in space and ready to see how the constellation looks a few hours later. The home system is clear, with no new signatures threatening, and the tower in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system is back up to holding two Heron frigates with the Ferox battlecruiser. The Herons ...
