Enemies of your enemies are your friends

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Following the successful ambush of the Noctis salvager, somewhat unexpected by the fleet who thought our system was clear of pilots, I warp back to their C2 K162 to monitor the situation. The only surprise in seeing the pod of the Noctis jump through is in how long it took ...

Falling to a fleet

Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

I'm about to warp to a low-sec exit from w-space when a Legion stops me. Not directly, but the strategic cruiser appears on my directional scanner when I am expecting to see nothing. The Legion is on d-scan again when I next update, and continues to be for the next ...

Fake-forming up with a fleet

Friday, October 18th, 2013

All looks quiet in w-space. So very quiet. I think I need some company. I won't find it in the persisting gas clouds in the home system, so I'd best resolve the other signature and open our static wormhole to the neighbours. Or a lack of neighbours, perhaps. It depends ...

Just about making it home

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

I was going to scan, thinking the destruction of a planet-gooing Viator would have subdued the locals, but a pilot at the tower swaps back to his Crane. I can't quite believe a second transport would be thrown in front of my ship, just to see if I was actually ...

When high-sec is more interesting than w-space

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Empty system, empty Penny. Launching scanning probes to search for civilisation finds a K162 from class 2 w-space, which is a fair start, particularly seeing that if our home system is one of C2a's static wormholes then the other will lead to high-sec. Jumping through the K162 doesn't look immediately ...

Scanning to high-sec can be an end in itself

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Aii and Fin are on-line as I wake up in w-space. 'Are we being industrious?' Nope, my glorious leader is scanning the home system, and Aii is locked out, like an errant adolescent. I see from our shared bookmarks that we have a few rock sites in the system, which ...

The pod that got away

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Can anything be happening so early? I aim to find out. But I'll need to scan my way out of the home system, as just the static wormhole is waiting for me here. Of course, I can only know that because I already have scanning probes launched, so jumping to ...

Caught between reds and blues

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Aii's in our neighbouring system, scanning amongst 'lots of towers, four piloted ships'. That sounds good to me. I poke the home system to confirm there are no new connections, then head through our static wormhole to join my colleague. Four towers light up my directional scanner from the K162, ...

Showing no mercy

Friday, June 29th, 2012

I need different ammunition for my Loki, which means another trip to empire space. One strategic cruiser will have to wait for another, though, as it's all quiet at home, Fin's here, and the system is bustling with Sleepers. We could probably do with making some ISK, at least to ...

Ship spotting

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

I'm going to take a poke around w-space, once I've determined which way is 'up' in the home system. I seem to be pointing in a rather curious orientation and I never can find our star quickly, but I get my bearings and launch probes to see the Sleepers starting ...
