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 ...

Afternoon scanning

Monday, August 12th, 2013

Maybe today I can aim higher than a Heron. Popping frigates is a fun distraction, but that's all it really is. More new signatures at home could offer different directions to head, to look for opportunity, but it's just gas, gas, gas. And a bit more gas. I have no ...

More ratting in null-sec

Friday, August 9th, 2013

A new day, a new adventure. I scan, resolve our static wormhole, and jump to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system. All looks quiet, with my directional scanner showing me nothing, so it's not much of an adventure yet. My notes say C3a was unoccupied a year ago, and as ...

Tripping over transports

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

The system's completely bare! I don't know what's happened, maybe a glitch in the matrix, but there's almost nothing to see in our little corner of w-space. At least the static wormhole remains, which hopefully will lead to somewhere more populated. Jumping to the neighbouring class 3 system sees occupation, ...

Not getting involved

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

I'm back and looking for more than a simple scanning frigate. I won't find that at home, but I was planning to roam the current constellation and probe for new connections, so that's okay. Jumping to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system sees no change, and a blanket scan reveals ...

Scanning to high-sec can be an end in itself

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Aii and Fin are on-line as I wake up in w-space. 'Are we being industrious?' Nope, my glorious leader is scanning the home system, and Aii is locked out, like an errant adolescent. I see from our shared bookmarks that we have a few rock sites in the system, which ...

Not even shooting rats

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

A late night poke around w-space has me finding new rocks at home, and no way to go but through our static wormhole. The connection takes me to our neighbouring class 3 system, where my directional scanner shows me nothing but a bubble in range. I launch probes, blanket the ...

Getting close to a gasser

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

It's just me and the static connection. And a curious absence of most of our anomalies. Dammit, that was our ISK! Just because we couldn't be bothered to take it from the Sleepers doesn't give other fleets the right to steal it from us. Someone is going to pay for ...

Tracking transports

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

I'm looking for some action. There's none at home, so I move my search next door, to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system, which also looks empty. My directional scanner reports clear from the K162, and the only planet out of range doesn't hold a tower when I warp across ...

Stalking strategic cruisers

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

Glorious leader Fin saw some industrial ships in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system earlier. I interrupted her stalking by bringing her to a class 5 system connected to our home in the hopes that my ambush of a planet-gooing hauler would provoke a response. It didn't, and we wasted ...
