Cruising for a Covetor

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Back to the class 5 w-space system and across to the last of the three wormholes I've resolved. It's a K162 to more class 5 w-space. I bet that Deimos heavy assault cruiser that entered our home system came from this way. Deeper I go, aiming to find out. Woo, ...

Night of the class 2 system

Sunday, June 1st, 2014

There's not much to report at home. Probably. That one new signature could be a wormhole, but it feels like gas. I burp some probes in to space and scan, resolving myself a second wormhole. Okay, then, let's take a look. Well, that will be our static wormhole, making this ...

Scanning but not counting

Gas, anomalies, one other signature. Ah, w-space life. That signature will be our static wormhole to class 3 w-space, and I'll do what I usually do and ignore the gas in favour of the wormhole. Someone else can suck it, I'm sure. It's almost as if I'm keen to go ...

Causing ripples

I'll leave this class 2 w-space system alone. The one hauler I tried to catch got away and was replaced by a scout, who disappeared. I doubt anything interesting will happen here. But that's okay, as I've not been through our static wormhole yet, which could offer all sorts of ...

Wormhole spotting

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Our poppet's on-line, but where? 'Scanning, at home.' Great, let's do it, and get Fin home. A pretty bare home system is livened up by a single extra signature, which even though it's some gas is pretty exciting after having scummy visitors almost strip us clean of any resource. Otherwise ...

Scanning the constellation to nowhere

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

It's quiet at home, quiet at the neighbours. Scanning my way through our static wormhole puts me in an unoccupied and inactive class 3 w-space system. My notes point me to a tower from eleven months ago, but warping there finds it off-line and stripped of anything useful, which means ...

Bring your own bubble

Sunday, December 16th, 2012

Just sitting outside a tower, watching some ships. I procrastinated too long over ambushing a gassing Rokh battleship, so missed that opportunity to explode embarrassingly, and am now hoping that the Harbinger battlecruiser or Bestower hauler will become active in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system. I don't hold out ...

Missing ships is understandable, missing a tower is careless

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

I've made my decision. There's no point heading back through the wormhole that leads me to reds, not after I have taken a pot-shot at one of them and have concluded that they are waiting for me. That pretty much leaves me one direction to travel, although I suppose I ...

Welcome back

Monday, October 15th, 2012

A glitch has me off-line for a few days, and now I'm back and wondering how much has changed. Maybe some buttons have been moved, or wormholes have stopped existing, and perhaps I can blame any of this for whatever shortcomings I'll have this evening. One change I notice when ...
