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 ...

Less coming back than going out

Friday, August 1st, 2014

I launch probes and perform a blanket scan of the home system. I'm watching out for the nefarious threat of a shady Helios, the covert operations boat entering our home yesterday and maybe not leaving. I dunno, I wasn't paying full attention and, filthy casual that I am, went off-line ...

Extra time for extra signatures

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Back through class 2 w-space. The Helios covert operations boat is probably still running idle loops around its tower, the Impairor frigate motionless nearby. In to class 3 w-space, our neighbouring system, and is that a new signature the discovery scanner is blinking at me? It's not immediately obvious, what ...

Losing my eyeline

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

Maybe I'll just have a quick poke around tonight. Nothing fancy or extended. Well, I definitely won't be shooting Sleepers, seeing that all our anomalies have been stolen, bastards. Perhaps one of the handful of new signatures will lead to the culprits. I dunno about that, but we've certainly had ...

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 ...

No Mammoth, no ghost site

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Two new gas sites should keep Aii happily busy for a little while. Let's see if our static wormhole can do the same for me. Jumping to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system looks pretty ordinary, with a tower and no ships visible on my directional scanner, so I do ...

Probing with a Probe

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Across to C2a and out to empire space to scan. The class 3 w-space system connecting to our home system is a veritable hub of w-space this evening, but the number of options available is a little crippling. Rather than potentially fan out even further, opening even more connections for ...

Flying escort

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

There are a couple of cruiser wrecks out there someone, in this class 5 w-space system. The Gila and Osprey got destroyed by forces unknown, and I'm keen to find out if the wrecks were looted by their buddy, who survived in a Ferox battlecruiser. An anomaly is roughly in ...

Die, discovery scanner, die

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

Aww, man. It's just me at home. Who am I going to play with? I'll see if the neighbours are available. Some ships are visible on my directional scanner in the class 3 system through our static wormhole, so maybe the neighbours are available. But changing my overview settings sees ...

Making an exit

Monday, December 30th, 2013

Our good anomalies have been swept away again. Oh well, if we couldn't get organised it's no big loss, particularly as we still aren't in a position to clear them ourselves tonight. They'll come back, just as the gas comes back. We have two new pockets floated in to the ...
