Full of false alarms

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

I align my ship away from one wormhole and towards another, AUs distant, that will take me to another class 2 w-space system, but call a full stop before I accelerate in to warp. A final look at my directional scanner before entering warp sees a new ship in this ...

Late-night look backwards

Monday, August 18th, 2014

A new signature at home is often an interesting discovery to make. Could it be a new site to plunder for materials that can be sold for ISK—or activated and ignored if you're not industrially inclined? Could it be a new wormhole that leads to opportunity for a combat engagement, ...

Noticing new signatures as I come and go

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

What treats does w-space hold for me this evening? A new signature in the home system for a start. I mistakenly identify it as gas initially, but only because I clumsily ignore the wrong signature. Poking the right one with probes finds a second wormhole. It's only a K162 from ...

Hearing of a hacking Heron

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

More anomalies have popped up in the home system, but another K162 today too, this one from class 4 w-space. My glorious leader is around, somewhere, I'm not sure where, although it's obvious she has scanned her way through our neighbouring class 3 w-space system and out to empire space. ...

Trying to count ships

Friday, May 30th, 2014

All looks well. I launch probes and perform a blanket scan of the home w-space system as I warp to an arbitrary safe spot to place my Loki strategic cruiser in a more central position. At least, I think it's an arbitrary safe spot, one bookmark plucked out of the ...

Dipping through a dying wormhole

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

I'm here, and so is Fin. I think. 'C3a has a high-sec exit that's nine hops from Amarr, and a wormhole to a C5. I've not been to the C5.' So my glorious leader has scanned and is taking advantage of a fair connection in our neighbouring class 3 w-space ...

Curious orange

Monday, May 26th, 2014

New sites at home look tempting. It's a shame that the Sleepers sabotaged our Golem marauder, forcing it off-line shortly after it was warped in to an anomaly and reducing it to wreckage. Still, we can rebuild it. It just needs a few replacement parts. Until we get them, I ...

De-escalations

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

Hmm, do I clear that new anomaly in the home system, or explore for opportunity? Let me scan, resolve, and jump through our static wormhole whilst I ponder my decision. Okay, exploring it is! I have exploring to do too, as my directional scanner can only pick up one planet ...

Recouping a mineral loss

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

Two signatures at home surely hold a K162 between them. In fact, they are both K162 wormholes, one coming in from class 4 w-space, the other class 2 w-space. Let's see what's in C2a first. Updating my directional scanner from the other side of the wormhole sees a tower, Tengu ...

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 ...
