Another shot at a Noctis

Friday, August 29th, 2014

I locate the tower as the nanite paste repairs the remaining heat damage on my modules. As it turned out, I didn't need to overheat my guns to pop the salvager and the silly mobile tractor unit that stole my plunder, but I couldn't have known that in advance. There ...

Two stabs at bagging some plunder

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

That's a lot of signatures. Sure, it's the same number as yesterday, but still. It's a lot of signatures. There's even a new anomaly, my favourite type in the home system, and I think I'll clear it of Sleepers to rake in some ISK. I scan and resolve today's static ...

Clear two, clear a third free

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

I look to be alone to start the evening. But, then, I did yesterday too, and there turned out to be a substantial fleet in the middle of our system. Launching probes and performing a blanket scan doesn't return any ships, but that doesn't mean there are no ships. Not ...

Not bothering with a bubble

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

My glorious leader has been busy scanning. Our static wormhole is bookmarked, as is a K162 from class 2 w-space, along with a class 3 system behind that C2 and a high-sec exit. However, there are no bookmarks for C3a, the neighbouring system through our static wormhole, so I head ...

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 ...

Trying to count ships

Friday, May 30th, 2014

All looks well. I launch probes and perform a blanket scan of the home w-space system as I warp to an arbitrary safe spot to place my Loki strategic cruiser in a more central position. At least, I think it's an arbitrary safe spot, one bookmark plucked out of the ...

Mobile boring unit

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

I'm about to recall my probes, but my curiosity gets the better of me. What type of static wormhole does this class 5 w-space system hold? It's not a particularly interesting question, admittedly, but there may be a reason why the system is unoccupied. I have time to find out, ...

Sleepers, thousands of them

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Fin's sleeping. Sleepering. Shooting Sleepers. She nearly wasn't, having been isolated in empire space yesterday, and thanks me for the convenient route back home through a wormhole two systems from Amarr. It was my pleasure, I suppose. And with a closed system and a bunch of anomalies it looks like ...

Back-and-forth with bait

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

I'm feeling more positive after yesterday's playful encounter. What's up for tonight? A ship in our home system, for a start, which my combat scanning probes inform me of. Warping across from my safe spot lets me see the Golem marauder on my directional scanner, and switching overviews and repeating ...

Ever get the feeling you're being watched?

Monday, April 21st, 2014

You never can tell who's watching you in w-space. The scout in an Anathema covert operations boat of this class 3 w-space system has moved back in to the force field of his tower, after being decloaked by a colleague in a shuttle, and wisely, considering I was watching. Another ...
