Slow chase

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

Maybe I'll go back for that hauler. Now that the tower no longer has a vice-like grip on my strategic cruiser, I could take my pod in to grab the Epithal and claim it for myself. Or maybe I should at least scout this system properly first. My opportunistic assault ...

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 ...

Returning to a cold embrace

Monday, February 24th, 2014

Relics, gas, and a second wormhole. Which will give me the most excitement? Call it a hunch, but I'll try the K162 from class 5 w-space over the gas. Ah crap, I was right, but I wasn't really expecting to see a fleet waiting for me. Two Legion strategic cruisers, ...

Finally fighting

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Maybe the opportunity for a scrap isn't quite over. Two of the small fleet the occupants of a class 2 w-space system placed on the wormhole connecting our two systems have warped clear, but one stays. The Cyclone battlecruiser remains on the wormhole for now, and I see on my ...

New whale

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

I'm aiming for little more than a poke around for now, just testing the waters of, um, space. I think that's a metaphor. Lots of anomalies wait to be exploited in the home system, but they'll have to wait a bit longer, and two unknown signatures give me a pocket ...

Falling to a fleet

Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

I'm about to warp to a low-sec exit from w-space when a Legion stops me. Not directly, but the strategic cruiser appears on my directional scanner when I am expecting to see nothing. The Legion is on d-scan again when I next update, and continues to be for the next ...

Sleepers seeing off strangers

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

I'm heading home, ready to call it a night, but happy to help crash our static wormhole to let Aii chomp on some rocks in relative safety. Hold on, though. The dumbscovery scanner is showing me a new signature in the home system. New sites don't appear with as much ...

Isolation and return

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Our industrialists are on-line. What's happening? 'Nada. C3 was dead. Low-sec had pirates camping a gate.' My glorious leader Fin indicates that our current options are pretty limited. Shall we collapse our wormhole and clear some anomalies for fun and profit? 'Sounds like a plan.' Let's do it. My glorious ...

At last the Drake

Monday, December 9th, 2013

It's time for bed. Great story, Penny. See you all tomorrow. But wait: returning through low-sec and in to class 3 w-space has the Drake battlecruiser visible on my directional scanner. I see two towers too, but those two towers are the two towers in the inner system. The Drake ...

Three go out, only one can return

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

I turn around from the K346 to warp back to the tower. The fleet has returned through the null-sec wormhole to their home class 3 w-space system, and we didn't manage to catch any of the three ships. It didn't help that they had the sense to get a scout ...
