Noticing new signatures as I come and go

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

What treats does w-space hold for me this evening? A new signature in the home system for a start. I mistakenly identify it as gas initially, but only because I clumsily ignore the wrong signature. Poking the right one with probes finds a second wormhole. It's only a K162 from ...

Probable bait

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

I'm back again. I dunno why. Unfounded optimism, maybe, or just a creature of habit. Either way, I only feel like a quick session, which definitely makes my appearance feel habitual, although I have other activities I can be doing. Let's get on. Two new signatures in the home system ...

Scouting to strategic cruisers

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Man, even our two ore sites have gone. What kind of despicable pilot would activate them just because they can, denying others their utility perhaps only because they can't make use of them themselves? I dunno, bunch of savages in w-space. At least two new anomalies have popped up to ...

Passing time poorly

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

I'm only two stargate hops to Rens. That's neat, maybe. I dunno. It's better than Dodixie, by default, but it also means that waiting half-an-hour for an Iteron hauler to make a return trip is probably too long. With that in mind, I do what any reasonable capsuleer would do, ...

Crossing with a Crane

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

Back in my Loki strategic cruiser, mostly ignoring the customs office-bashing fleet in a class 2 w-space system behind me, I head towards our static wormhole and jump to the neighbouring class 3 system. My directional scanner gives me the all-clear from the K162, so I launch probes, blanket the ...

Opening a wormhole for it to be closed

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Nope, nothing. Lurking by the K162 in our home system, which took back to class 5 w-space a few bits of metal that resembled a Noctis salvager and a thief in a Venture frigate, doesn't spit anything back at me. Not even a scout comes through to see what I'm ...

Wormholes, wormholes everywhere

Friday, January 17th, 2014

'Closer to me, by a jump.' Sounds to me like our glorious leader is trying to get Aii home. With any luck, Aii took himself to empire space voluntarily, and he sounds chipper enough, so I focus on what circumstances are in w-space currently. And it seems to be quite ...

Impotent against Imicuses

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

Scan, explore, see what trouble I can find. Sure, I'll probably just run away from it like a scaredy-cat, but that's part of the appeal. Nothing jumps out at me in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, being empty of occupation and free from activity. That's kind of welcome, once ...

Making use of actual skill in scanning

Friday, November 1st, 2013

There's nothing unknown at home. The static wormhole used to be 'unknown', but now it's definitely a wormhole. Besides, I know it's there, so I suppose it's a known unknown. Except it's not unknown; I've just been over this. Well, it leads to space that's classified as 'unknown', so there's ...

Dumb move

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

I'll maybe have just a little poke around w-space tonight. Aii's on-line and has scanned a bit, which should help speed up matters. 'I'm hunting in C2a.' Oh? Are there any pilots? 'A Myrmidon is clearing a site alone.' Well then, I'd better get a ship to you. My directional ...
