Falling foul of a standard fitting

Monday, April 14th, 2014

A super-simple start to this evening. My glorious leader has left a trail of bookmarks for me to follow, in to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system and out to empire space. No scanning required. So, what's out there? Nothing is on our K162 in C3a, or on my directional ...

Bad bait

Monday, March 31st, 2014

Just sittin' on a wormhole, waitin' for polarisation to end. I'm curious to see if the locals of our neighbouring class 3 w-space system will poke their noses through, see what's happening here. I'm not really expecting anything, given that I disrupted their mining operation—admittedly with almost negligible loss to ...

Cheap and cheerless

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

No Sleepers for me today, even though a couple of new sites have spawned in the home system. I'm off exploring. It's just our static wormhole to venture through, so through it I venture to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, where I am frustrated by the discovery scanner. Just ...

First blood for the Ghost

Monday, March 10th, 2014

It's time to break-in Ghost of the Bounty, my new Loki strategic cruiser. Of course, it's pretty much identical to my previous Loki, except for the obvious difference of not being a wreck, but I think that difference will give significant performance increases. Scanning the couple of new signatures in ...

Outbound to an ore site

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Two gas sites have floated away from the home system, and the two new signatures only replace one of those sites. The other signature is a wormhole, a K162 from class 3 w-space, making it the same as our static wormhole but with a different direction. That's a good excuse ...

Startled by a signature

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

I hope I have better luck at staying in space tonight. And with the stability of wormholes. I get to test the latter immediately, as scanning our home system sees only the static connection has changed, and I warp to the wormhole to see it in rude health. Already I'm ...

Bagging a barge

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

I've been away for a few days, returning to w-space with a sense of expectation about potential changes. What's up, space? Gas sites are in the home system and our neighbouring class 3 system has been poked but not scanned by HR, who is on-line. It's not much different from ...

Finding bored pilots

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

No more relic sites for me for a while. I would say I've had my fill of them in the past few days. If I must do one, it will be because I've scanned a stupidly expensive blueprint in one of the containers. Then again, knowing me, if I have ...

Missing a Venture's a minor adventure

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

There's nothing to update at home, just a refresh of our static wormhole. It's straightforward to resolve, and I jump to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system to start today's adventure. My directional scanner is clear from the K162, and my last visit being only three weeks earlier gives me ...

Wormholes or nothing

Monday, November 4th, 2013

No change at home has my ignoring what I already know about, resolving our static wormhole, and jumping to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system to see what's shaking. Nothing within range of my directional scanner, and perhaps nothing at all with only two planets out of range. Launching probes ...
