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 ...

Relaxing by making ISK

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

I've calmed down a little about yesterday's Epithal encounter. A little. Okay, not really, because nothing's changed. It's just best not to dwell too much on it. An evening spent blowing the crap out of Sleepers would probably offer some light relief, though, so with glorious leader Fin available and ...

Three against the Sleepers

Saturday, March 29th, 2014

My glorious leader is on-line. What's up, Fin? 'Just trying to clean out some signatures.' So... 'sucking gas, basically.' Well, we have some decent anomalies, which I mentioned to myself in passing a day or so ago, and an ever-present need to make more ISK to fuel our machine. Maybe ...

Gas-site salvaging

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Aii's sucked up some gas nice and efficiently. I would like to think that the new signature in the home system is space's reward to him, a replenishing of the gas, but not when a blanket scan of the home system reveals two ships and five drones. I rather suspect ...

Having a go at a Helios

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Two pods are at the tower with the Orca industrial command ship. One has stowed his Retriever mining barge, the other left his behind as a wreck in the ore site, kinda helped along by yours truly. I'm curious to see what they do next. A Buzzard covert operations boat ...

Ghosts and Sleepers

Friday, March 7th, 2014

'Heads up, new signature on scan.' I see we have a ghost site in our system, as Fin alerts me to a potential new wormhole. As my glorious leader already has probes out I keep myself hidden as she scans. 'Data site', we can relax, our system remains isolated. I ...

Enemies of your enemies are your friends

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Following the successful ambush of the Noctis salvager, somewhat unexpected by the fleet who thought our system was clear of pilots, I warp back to their C2 K162 to monitor the situation. The only surprise in seeing the pod of the Noctis jump through is in how long it took ...

No loot for me

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

A new signature in the home system isn't much to get excited about, but performing a blanket scan and also seeing a ship is, particularly when it looks like I should be alone. Warping to get within directional scanner range of the ship has core probes visible but no ship. ...

Hit the space warping

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

No one's around, but I have signatures aplenty in the home system. Launching probes and blanketing the system to see what they could be finds out that my initial statement is a bit misleading. No colleagues are around, but I do have company. Three ships are in our system. Once ...
