Getting lucky with gassers

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

The early Penny catches the planet gooer, so the traditional saying goes. It seems to have worked out for me in the past, so I'm awake in the home w-space system, scanning for wormholes, to see if I can find an unawares pilot to ambush. And would you look at ...

Pulling a jape on a joker

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012

It's just me and the static tonight, so here I go, looking for another adventure. Our neighbouring class 3 w-space system tonight has a Loki and Broadsword visible on my directional scanner, but only if I'm new to w-space and d-scan, and as easily startled as Sand People. I'm not, ...

Bloom and the Badger

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Gas has gone, new gas has come. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose. My glorious leader is present and scanning, resolving a wormhole as I launch my own probes. As Fin warps to what turns out to be our static connection to class 3 w-space my probes converge ...

Buying a ship and leaving it docked

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

I need a new stealth bomber after recklessly losing it to obvious bait. Um, I mean, heroically protecting the home system from invaders intent on stealing gas that we were never going to harvest anyway. Buying a new Manticore shouldn't be a chore, though. All I have to do is ...

Moa and Manticore

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Back in w-space and looking to see what I can find, I don't even have to wander outside the home system today. Two Moa cruisers, a few drones, and a jet-can are all visible on my directional scanner, once I move from my hiding spot to be closer to the ...

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 day in w-space

Monday, December 26th, 2011

There's nothing new at home, just rocks and the static wormhole, so I jump to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system to start tonight's exploration. A tower but no ships are visible on my directional scanner, keeping tonight's slow but relaxing start going, and I launch probes and perform a ...

Slaughtering Sleepers for a change

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Another strategic cruiser is lost by the corporation. Mick's Loki is attacked by another Loki and, as victim of the ambush, is on the back foot. At least he put up a good fight instead of helplessly ejecting when crippled by a tower with a bad attitude. But it also ...

Comings and goings

Friday, July 29th, 2011

I've left the boring class 3 w-space system behind me, but not w-space itself. Back out in high-sec empire space I wake up to see a contract waiting for me. Inspecting and accepting the contract gets me a set of bookmarks that looks like they'll take me to our class ...

Low-sec is dangerous

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Another day, another empty home system. I copy the bookmarks gracefully dropped in to our shared can and go out exploring. The two Badger haulers, Dominix battleship, two Drake battlecruisers, Ferox battlecruiser, Heron frigate, and Kitsune electronic attack ship all make our neighbouring class 3 w-space system look busy, but ...
