Waiting for what doesn't return

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

Another day in space. I'm greeted by two new sites, which could ease me in to the evening if it weren't for the extra signature. Probably. I dunno, I've not even launched probes yet. There they go, whizzing off, converging on that... second wormhole. No sites for me tonight, instead ...

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 ...
