Taking on a Tengu

Monday, August 11th, 2014

There's been some churn at home, with some new signatures coming in to the system from wherever. I launch probes and scan to determine what we've got, resolving a couple of gas sites and some relics, which suits me fine. Out to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system I go. ...

Refitting to rat

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Curiousity sated about the proximity of two wormholes in the Heimatar region, I turn my attention to see what's caused the wormhole to crackle. It's the Helios, the covert operations boat that I saw only briefly on my directional scanner in the class 3 w-space system, now poking through C3a's ...

Sucking without support

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Back to the current situation, with Devoter, Prowler, and wormholes. What to do? Check the C4 K162, naturally. Aww, naw, let's see what the Devoter heavy interdictor is up to. In to C5d, where the wormhole is clear, d-scan is not. Two towers are visible, as are a Vindicator battleship, ...

From blue to red

Monday, August 4th, 2014

I hope w-space is going to be more active tonight than it has been recently. A cursory glance at the home system as I come on-line suggests that, yep, shit's been going down. Select anomalies are missing from our system, damned thieves, and extra signatures almost certainly point to extra ...

ISK and a Venture

Saturday, August 2nd, 2014

Let's see what's changed. Our anomalies are still here, a few new ones have turned up, and although our sites have gone they have been replaced by a similar number of signatures. Maybe the gas has just migrated, like sponges, but only one signature is a gas site. The others ...

Brute force and strategy

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Decloaked outside an active tower, jammed, and being plinked by a gun. It's not a great situation to be in, particularly where there are two piloted ships inside the force field of the tower, but at least my warp engines aren't disrupted. Not yet, anyway. I have to get clear ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...
