Finding Impass

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

There's no change in space, as far as I can tell. That's a little over 14 AU, for what it's worth, and I'm fairly sure space extends at least a little beyond that. Perhaps I should take a better look around than merely punching my directional scanner in a safe spot ...

Ghost ship and ghost site

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Two wormholes in high-sec. Both K162s, both coming from w-space. One is from a class 3 system, the other a class 2 system. Still no hauler returns to jump past me from where he perhaps didn't go in the first place, so I stop waiting ineffectually and go looking for ...

Finding the source of a fleet

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Fin's on-line as I come on-line. My glorious leader has been here a while, though, as she's already scouted the constellation. I get a sitrep, involving various w-space connections, a few to empire space, and hearing that a bunch of strategic cruisers were spotted at one point—more than we could ...

I brake for H900s

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

I'll have another go at not dying tonight. It didn't seem so difficult yesterday, against the odds, so I am optimistic about keeping my ship intact. And tonight I don't so much start by scanning the home system as scan the corporate bookmarks, which tells me that a colleague unluckier ...

Honing a mostly pointless skill

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

I'm not even supposed to be here today. But I'll try to make the best of it, as long as somebody hasn't jammed chewing gum in to our static wormhole so it won't open. Bunch of savages in w-space. The known sites have faded away, but my probes reveal five ...

For the want of carrier skills

Monday, October 28th, 2013

'Hopefully I am not stuck in high-sec.' Holy crap, I'm getting a sitrep. I'm no longer used to this, and I try to follow the best I can but my puny mind cannot process it all at once. Something about bringing in minerals for our industrial projects through a dying ...

Slow, slow, fast

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Some gas has drifted away, some new clouds have appeared. That's all the excitement in the home w-space system accounted for, is it any better next door? Not obviously, with my directional scanner clear from the K162 in the neighbouring class 3 system, although the black hole sits imposingly in ...

Traces of activity

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Old sites have dispersed, new sites have coalesced. Such is life in w-space. What's elsewhere? Two towers and a Thanatos carrier appear on my directional scanner in our neighbouring class 3 system, and I'm pushed seven kilometres from the K162 when jumping in to the system. Even without that clue ...

Rattling a 'snake

Friday, July 26th, 2013

Penny, bane of planet-gooers, is coming for your hauler. Resolving our static wormhole and jumping through finds a rather better target visible, though. My directional scanner is showing me a Rattlesnake faction battleship and drones, with no sign of a tower in range. I don't see any wrecks, which isn't ...

Null-sec hub

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Nom nom nom, 100 M ISK brains are good eating. Now back in w-space, a few hours after the pair of gooing hauler ambushes, what's new? A load of fuel bricks brought in from Amarr, that's what, thanks to my glorious leader taking advantage of that high-sec connection in the class 2 ...
