Diverting from a collapse

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Aww, man. All our home anomalies are gone, either plundered by parties unknown or activated in spite. If I could have been bothered to clear them myself I'd be upset. Instead, I'm more concerned about my ship staying responsive in space. It feels good so far! Let's see if jumping ...

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 ...

Chasing my tail

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

There are some bookmarks for a simple constellation waiting for me as I come on-line, but how fresh are they? Warping to empty space where a wormhole should be says 'not very fresh, Penny', so I have some scanning to do. I start by scanning our current static wormhole, hoping ...

Wormholes or nothing

Monday, November 4th, 2013

No change at home has my ignoring what I already know about, resolving our static wormhole, and jumping to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system to see what's shaking. Nothing within range of my directional scanner, and perhaps nothing at all with only two planets out of range. Launching probes ...

Arriving at the right time

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

It's kinda late by now, but I think I can afford to poke my prow through our static wormhole, just in case a soft target happens to present itself. And although a Navy Megathron and Navy Dominix are hardly soft, that they actually appear to be doing something catches my ...

Dying leads to death

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

It's been a few hours since the curious incident of the exploding planet gooer, so what's changed? For a start, our static wormhole is now in its end-of-life stage and has been destabilised to half-mass. That it is EOL can be explained by the wormhole no doubt having been opened ...

Mugging a Megathron made by the navy

Monday, February 18th, 2013

(The newly resurrected Our EVE tells the first half of this tale, from the perspective of my glorious leader.) 'Two Ventures are next door.' Sounds good, tell me more. 'But they are sitting in the tower now.' Such a shame. I haven't bagged one of the new mining frigates yet. It ...

Bagging some booty through bubbles

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Excuse me a moment. I just have to plug in a new implant. Oh yeah, 10% more scanning strength. That's well worth training cybernetics up to level V. And I have my glorious leader to thank for the gift, which is awfully generous of her. Here she is, too, just as ...

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 ...

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 ...
