Rattling a 'snake

Friday, July 26th, 2013

Penny, bane of planet-gooers, is coming for your hauler. Resolving our static wormhole and jumping through finds a rather better target visible, though. My directional scanner is showing me a Rattlesnake faction battleship and drones, with no sign of a tower in range. I don't see any wrecks, which isn't ...

Prodding a Purifier

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Bye bye, Drakey. I watched the battlecruiser warp away from the radar site in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, too nervous to engage it because of its buddy in the Loki strategic cruiser. That doesn't stop me following it home, though. What stops me is that the wormhole it ...

Out to low-sec and back

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

The wormhole dies without fuss, much like the miner I popped in the previous connected system. I had my fun there, and now I'm hoping for another good system to explore in to. I resolve the replacement wormhole and jump to the new class 3 w-space system to see what ...

Looking for trouble

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Now that's a clean system. Rocks, rocks, and a wormhole. No anomalies. And it's the w-space system we call home. I'd best go next door so that I don't muss up the place and get Fin mad with me. C3a has one of those J-numbers that sounds familiar but really ...

Watching Sleepers rattle a snake

Monday, May 7th, 2012

All alone in space again, so sad. It's just me and my gas. Hey, maybe that's why I'm alone. I need to get rid of the gas! Damn, I think I'm suffering from space madness, so enough of the high jinks and on to exploring the w-space constellation for today. ...

Sticking to ships I can shoot

Monday, October 10th, 2011

Scanning remains simple with just the single signature at home. I resolve the static wormhole and jump in to a class 3 w-space system I visited only a month earlier. The last time I was here I watched and thankfully ignored a Myrmidion battlecruiser successfully baiting a local Hurricane battlecruiser ...

Exploring through a confusing constellation

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Ah, sweet pulsar home of mine. What better way to celebrate my return than scanning an exit? And whilst I am scanning the home w-space system for the first time in a while I can start easy-mode mining too. There are a bunch of gravimetric and ladar sites cluttering up ...

From snake to salvager

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

I'm still in the class 5 w-space system bivouac, but glorious leader Fin is elsewhere. She's only as far as the neighbouring C4, scanning the constellation, so I go out to join her. There are two Orca industrial command ships, a Rorqual capital industrial ship, and a Tempest battleship all ...

Death comes quick

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

The reckless miners are tooling up. A Rattlesnake battleship and Drake battlecruiser are piloted at the tower in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, along with two other pilots in a Covetor mining barge and Anathema covert operations boat. But none of them are active. I suppose they could have ...

Scanning in and out of w-space

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

W-space waits for me somewhere out there, I just need to get to it. Scanning the base high-sec system is a good start, resolving two wormholes leading to unknown space. The first is a K162 connection coming from a class 1 w-space system, but the other is more promising, an ...
