Deathrace 2000

The skinny wormhole of the three in the low-sec system in Black Rise is an N432, of course. An outbound connection to class 5 w-space. I suppose I can take a look, although I'm not expecting to find much to catch unawares through an outward wormhole. I jump through to ...

Another shot at a Noctis

Friday, August 29th, 2014

I locate the tower as the nanite paste repairs the remaining heat damage on my modules. As it turned out, I didn't need to overheat my guns to pop the salvager and the silly mobile tractor unit that stole my plunder, but I couldn't have known that in advance. There ...

Two stabs at bagging some plunder

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

That's a lot of signatures. Sure, it's the same number as yesterday, but still. It's a lot of signatures. There's even a new anomaly, my favourite type in the home system, and I think I'll clear it of Sleepers to rake in some ISK. I scan and resolve today's static ...

It's referred to as the scanner overlay and not the 'discovery' scanner for good reason

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Another day absent, even more anomalies brazenly stolen from us. This is an outrage! The perpetrators really ought to have dumped a container with 30% of their plunder at our tower, just as a basic nicety for taking advantage of our system. I normally do, or try to, or maybe ...

Full of false alarms

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

I align my ship away from one wormhole and towards another, AUs distant, that will take me to another class 2 w-space system, but call a full stop before I accelerate in to warp. A final look at my directional scanner before entering warp sees a new ship in this ...

Shooting for the stars

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

I've not much time tonight, enough for a poke around w-space, at least. And to update my skill queue, perhaps. I'm taking a rather more pragmatic approach to this task nowadays, and simply throw a skill in to the queue that is under a month long. It will come in ...

Taking on a Tengu

Monday, August 11th, 2014

There's been some churn at home, with some new signatures coming in to the system from wherever. I launch probes and scan to determine what we've got, resolving a couple of gas sites and some relics, which suits me fine. Out to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system I go. ...

Sucking without support

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Back to the current situation, with Devoter, Prowler, and wormholes. What to do? Check the C4 K162, naturally. Aww, naw, let's see what the Devoter heavy interdictor is up to. In to C5d, where the wormhole is clear, d-scan is not. Two towers are visible, as are a Vindicator battleship, ...

Clear two, clear a third free

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

I look to be alone to start the evening. But, then, I did yesterday too, and there turned out to be a substantial fleet in the middle of our system. Launching probes and performing a blanket scan doesn't return any ships, but that doesn't mean there are no ships. Not ...

Almost something happening

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Losing a Bustard transport full of fuel and buying a replacement has somehow cost us a wad of ISK. Therefore, my plan tonight is to make some ISK back, nominally by thoroughly exploding whole sites of Sleepers. Two new signatures in the home system have other ideas, though, particularly as ...
