Rock-man kung fu

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Where is everyone? Not in our home system. And I only see two bubbles in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system. Hoping there is more lying out of range of my directional scanner, I launch probes and blanket the system. The three anomalies and seven signatures I pretty much expect, ...

Missing gassers, getting fuel

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

I return on-line some time after my sammich, but in the same w-space day. Nothing is happening in the home system, not even faux-blue pilots stealing our iskies, but I have the start of a constellation to roam, so jump to our neighbouring class 3 system. It's still unoccupied, still ...

Early uncovering of the constellation

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

I'm out for early reconnaissance. Well, not early, really, but earlier than normal. It's still reconnaissance. But perhaps not until I've left the home system, so with all looking clear I resolve our static wormhole and jump to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system. My directional scanner shows me nothing ...

Going after gassers

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Let's not mess up an easy kill today, shell we Penny? Assuming, of course, that I get another fat target like yesterday's miner. But in finding the miner after collapsing our static wormhole, and not scanning the class 3 w-space system for an exit, I may have inadvertently shut Shev ...

Crashing, collapsing, crushing

Monday, June 25th, 2012

It's a full house. Is mining happening? 'It was considered, then we found two wormholes.' My glorious leader is currently in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, resolving what turns out to be a fresh outbound connection to class 1 w-space, and invites me along to take a look. I ...

Almost finding trouble

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

I arrive just as Fin is about to peek through one of the two K162s in the system. My glorious leader has scanned our home and found not only our static wormhole to class 3 w-space, but also connections coming from class 2 and class 5 w-space. That gives us ...

Shooting the greys

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Fin's fickle agent still snubs me. If that's the way it's going to be, I'll look for capsuleers to shoot in w-space. I take my Tengu strategic cruiser to look for wormholes in high-sec, finding nothing in the home system and a single wormhole in the next system along. Sadly, ...

Missing a Maller

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Interesting ships await me in w-space today. Our home system is quiet, but scanning my way to our neighbouring class 3 system has a Thanatos carrier, three Dominix battleships, and some industrial ships visible on my direction scanner. The three identical battleships make me think there may be a fleet ...

All C3s lead to k-space

Monday, January 10th, 2011

'Hey, just in time'. Glorious leader Fin is happy to see me, as always, somehow tolerant to my little foibles and sociopathic tendencies. I ask if we're ready to shoot someone, but apparently not. Fin has, however, isolated the home system's static wormhole from the noise of the forty-one sites ...

Scouting for scouts

Sunday, December 26th, 2010

There are twelve scanning probes in our home system, which is not only enough for anyone but too many for just one pilot. We have at least a couple of visitors. In an attempt to keep a low profile I swap the Buzzard covert operations boat I sleep in for ...
