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 ...

Watching a ship go out

Saturday, January 11th, 2014

There's been another signature explosion in our home w-space system. It can't all be gas, not all three new signatures. Performing a blanket scan, as is good practice even when coming on-line, sees no ships in the system, so I get to scanning the signatures. Two gas sites, one wormhole. ...

Nothing in null-sec

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

It's just me on-line at the moment. What can I do? I can start by scanning the home w-space system. Oh yeah, getting the party started. There's just gas and the static wormhole, and I jump to our neighbouring class 3 system to look for a dance partner. Nothing to ...

Chasing my tail

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

There are some bookmarks for a simple constellation waiting for me as I come on-line, but how fresh are they? Warping to empty space where a wormhole should be says 'not very fresh, Penny', so I have some scanning to do. I start by scanning our current static wormhole, hoping ...

Taunted by a Tengu

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

The static exit does indeed lead out to the Syndicate region. I'm slowly getting to grips with the different colours and nebulae visible through wormholes exiting w-space. All I need to do now is find a way to make that information useful. For the moment, though, feeling smug seems to ...

Hacking a Cheetah

Sunday, October 13th, 2013

I'm back, with options. The neighbouring occupants could have woken up, a new wormhole could have opened in the constellation, or, most likely, the static exit to high-sec has died and been replaced. Not a bad start is seeing that the K162 from class 4 w-space connecting to our home ...

Down the chain

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Hello, all of our anomalies are gone. I suppose activating them was the petulant last act of the fleet who wilfully chose to ignore all the information—I hesitate to call it 'intelligence'—available to them and let me pod their Noctis carrying all of their loot. Well, the last laugh is ...

What we have here is a failure to think straight

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

I come home from another extended w-space constellation to three Raven Navy Issue battleships, a Basilisk logistics ship, and Noctis salvager visible on my directional scanner. And, of course, all the Sleeper wrecks that are made by such a fleet. Here's me scanning wormholes and exploring dozens of systems over ...

Not quite ready for the return

Monday, September 30th, 2013

Let's see what I can get up to today. The recent spate of wormholes connecting to our home system has apparently dried up, leaving me with the one route to go, jumping through our static connection to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system. I won't get up to much mischief ...

Names are confusing, ship and pilot

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Gas has floated out of the home system to be replaced by what I assume are new and almost entirely similar pockets of gas. But assumptions are about as reliable as a Gallente's word, and one of the signatures resolves to be a second wormhole. Where does it come from? ...
