Shooting for the stars

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

I've not much time tonight, enough for a poke around w-space, at least. And to update my skill queue, perhaps. I'm taking a rather more pragmatic approach to this task nowadays, and simply throw a skill in to the queue that is under a month long. It will come in ...

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 ...

Two exits to Heimatar

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Scanning the home system sees nothing of immediate interest. One extra signature could herald possible visitors, or it could be another gas cloud wafting through. It's gas. Despite the closed system, our anomalies were stolen yesterday, leaving me little else to do but warp to our static and jump to ...

Getting an Epithal

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Back in the home system, I repair the damage to my Proteus strategic cruiser after the curious case of the onffline tower. Now to return to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, where I'll ignore the Epithal hauler up for grabs by the same tower, what with the Onyx heavy ...

Slow chase

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

Maybe I'll go back for that hauler. Now that the tower no longer has a vice-like grip on my strategic cruiser, I could take my pod in to grab the Epithal and claim it for myself. Or maybe I should at least scout this system properly first. My opportunistic assault ...

Blink and you miss it

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

The class 3 w-space system has been subdued. The Venture mining frigate we nearly caught returns to the tower, the pilot stutters, and goes off-line. It's time to scan properly. There are four anomalies and twelve signatures, two of which we know about. One is our K162, the other the ...

Wormholes popping

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

Lurking on a wormhole, waiting for a scout. I can't really say why, because beyond this w-space system being his home there is little reason to believe the Imicus frigate will come back this way any time soon. I think I'm more frustrated at the new behaviour of the interface ...

Taking on a Talos

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Hello, there's a Talos on the wormhole home. The battlecruiser isn't really blocking my way, as I'm sure I can evade a single ship on a wormhole, but what else do the pilots of this class 5 w-space system have around? I've been at a distant tower, watching a hauler ...

Mobile boring unit

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

I'm about to recall my probes, but my curiosity gets the better of me. What type of static wormhole does this class 5 w-space system hold? It's not a particularly interesting question, admittedly, but there may be a reason why the system is unoccupied. I have time to find out, ...

Stopping at the start of a chain

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

I have a bit of spare time, I'll have a poke around the w-space constellation to see if anyone is out and about. Of course, I pretty much have to uncover the w-space constellation first, what with wormholes needing to be scanned, unlike stargates, but I'm expecting that. I ignore ...
