Black hole to black hole

Monday, July 28th, 2014

Heading back home, I take a diversion in to null-sec. I ignore the K162 from null-sec in the first class 5 black hole system, because if someone opened it and came through then they would have done the same to any other wormholes. The outbound wormhole to null-sec in the ...

Epithal escort

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Heading home through a quiet w-space constellation, I can't resist poking out to low-sec. Our neighbouring class 3 w-space system holds a number of wormholes to other w-space systems, all occupied, none with any ships, but I've yet to exit w-space so far tonight. I'd be remiss if I didn't ...

Stalking stealth bombers

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

The Hound eludes me. The stealth bomber is far from the cluster of rather larger ships and their drones that are shooting the off-line tower in our home w-space system, for whatever reason, but I can't get myself close enough to catch him. Thankfully, other options have turned up. More ...

Trying to catch a Womble

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Fresh in space, all looks clear. Our gas site has been swept away, and although a new signature has popped up I wouldn't be surprised it if were just replacement gas. I launch probes, perform a blanket scan, and, huh. There are a dozen or more ships along with clouds ...

Scuttling a Skiff

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

I'm heading home, through a really convenient wormhole from high-sec to low-sec, when I remember the other wormhole I scanned. It's in this low-sec system, and I haven't reconnoitred it yet because it's an outbound wormhole, not wanting to open it immediately if it wasn't already open. It's a long ...

Converting loot to ISK to fuel

Saturday, July 19th, 2014

My glorious leader comes on-line as I bring our Golem marauder home. I've pillaged and plundered my way through a handful of anomalies in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, making a decent amount of profit already. What do we do now? 'Do you want to roll the wormhole to ...

Sore Sabre

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

No, it's not good enough. I'm not going off-line yet, screw the two systems connecting to us whose occupants can't be arsed to collapse their waveforms to either be active or inactive and not some weird superposition of both. I'll scan at least the class 3 system through our static ...

Getting fuel is easy

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Mick's been scouting and has scanned a whole bunch of wormholes. That saves me some time and gives me some initial options. There are also a few high-sec exits scattered around but, like yesterday, the class 2 w-space system connecting in to home holds aggressively hostile pilots that Mick bounced ...

There's always time for a salvager

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

Back in to my Proteus strategic cruiser, looking for more wormholes. That elusive connection to empire space that doesn't take me through a notorious low-sec gate camp must be somewhere, although it's not like I absolutely must find it this evening or our tower will go off-line from wanting fuel. ...

Looking for high-sec

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

I get my pod back to the home system, unfortunately without a fuel-laden Bustard transport ship wrapped around me. That's not a problem at all, certainly not one that needs to be solved tonight, but, even so, I have this compulsion to continue my efforts to drag some fuel in ...
