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 ...

Finding the w-space Phantasm

Sunday, May 4th, 2014

I leave the hot system behind me. Well, cool system. It was hot earlier, and there is certainly some activity happening, just nothing I can see. Frankly, that's not a great kind of activity to be involved in. So it is that I jump through the wormhole home and head ...

Not getting in the way of a roam

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Time to go exploring! The marauder experiment was... a success maybe? It wasn't a failure, because I cleared the anomaly and brought our pimped Golem back home intact, it just took a while to do. But one is enough for now, and rather than head back with my glorious leader ...

Avoiding an easy ambush

Monday, September 9th, 2013

A new signature in the home system today is a treat. It seems like a while since something unexpected appeared under my probes, but as it looks a bit weak I don't think there's much reason to get excited. It's probably just some relics or a data site. I resolve ...

Temporarily trapping a transport

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

I'm scanning. Despite an Iteron appearing at the local tower, I doubt our class 3 w-space neighbours will be throwing any more ships at us. Even so, Aii watches the hauler closely as I resolve the handful of signatures in the system. And along with the static exit to low-sec ...

Going for gassing in a black hole system

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Our neighbouring class 3 w-space system has an active scout, but still I scan overtly. I don't think it's a problem if I'm spotted. I can pretty much assume the scout knows I'm here anyway, what with him boarding the Imicus scanning frigate after I destroyed his Venture mining frigate ...

Sabre rattling

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

I'm relatively early to w-space this evening, but my glorious leader is earlier. Fin's gone from home and is in a class 2 system, connecting to our own, leaving our neighbouring class 3 system unexplored. Not for long. I warp across the home system and jump through our static wormhole, ...

Wormhole spotting

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Our poppet's on-line, but where? 'Scanning, at home.' Great, let's do it, and get Fin home. A pretty bare home system is livened up by a single extra signature, which even though it's some gas is pretty exciting after having scummy visitors almost strip us clean of any resource. Otherwise ...

Restoring Penny preferences

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Damn, this Minmatar technology is flaky. After spending a day trying to get my ship on-line I've had to restore all of its systems to the factory default settings. This is going to be painful. At least I'm somewhat prepared, after previous failures, with a saved overview file that I ...

Only shadows of ships

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

No new signatures crop up to tease me today, giving me a simple route from home to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system. And even in C3a w-space looks empty and isolated, with my directional scanner showing me nothing of interest. Launching probes and performing a blanket scan of the ...
