Is anybody out there?

Saturday, March 8th, 2014

All looks clear, but I need to check the new signature in the home system because a couple of old sites are gone. Yesterday's wormhole remains in the same place, and so unopened, making it no surprise that the new signature is not also a wormhole but more gas waiting ...

Hitting it big with a Heron

Sunday, August 4th, 2013

Pilots or rats, either works for me. No extra signatures in the home system pushes me through our static wormhole to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system, where I see ships. Ships on my directional scanner, but ships all the same. A Nemesis stealth bomber is neither here nor there, ...

In it for the explosions

Saturday, January 5th, 2013

Decisions, decisions. Which way to turn in the w-space constellation? Behind me is a class 5 w-space system, holding a K162 through which I podded a gasser in class 6 w-space, whose home system beyond that C6 I have yet to find. But ahead of me, in our neighbouring class ...

Following a fleet

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

Fin's next door, and is a bit of a dawg. She's heard I like finding wormholes leading to class 3 w-space systems through wormholes leading to class 3 w-space systems, and has delivered. I jump to our neighbouring system, get a sitrep on the three towers, unpiloted Prorator transport, and ...

Taking point

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Right, I've got a long skill in my queue. No more pussy-footing around trying to find a useful skill that takes less than three weeks to train, as this time I've gone for the gusto. I won't have to worry about the next skill for a month. Even after that, ...

A bit of experience, a bit of luck

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Oh dear. That Cheetah I saw earlier has mutated. It's no longer a covert operations boat but a ten-ship battle fleet. I went to empire space, for what turned out to be some disappointing ratting, having spotted the Cheetah on my directional scanner as I was leaving the home system, ...

Housewarming in the cold of space

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

I'm fed and watered, and ready to see if my earlier reconnaissance will reap any rewards. Before I get carried away looking for targets I launch probes and scan the home system, ensuring I'm not about to be made a target myself. No new connections have opened up here, so ...

Laying the spacework

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

I'm taking time to make an afternoon reconnaissance of w-space, hopefully laying the groundwork for later ambushes. Or spacework. Either way, I start as I always do by scanning the home system. All looks normal and I resolve our static wormhole, letting me jump to our neighbouring class 3 system. ...

Looking around w-space

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

I'm up and ready to take another poke around w-space. There's no one at home, which is a good start and lets me take my time to get settled, although I suppose it doesn't really matter how much time I take with only one undetermined signature. I resolve our static ...

A cloaked ship is not a safe ship

Monday, November 7th, 2011

This is more like it. Combat ships, drones, and wrecks, all on my directional scanner. There are industrial ships and a tower as well, but who cares. A little w-space constellation spread out from a hub of a class 3 system connects in to our home system today, which has ...
