Polarisation without purpose

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Let's go! Out to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, where two drones are all that my directional scanner cares to show me. No tower, no ships, no wrecks. Those poor little drones, left all alone in space few pilots will pass through. At least there are two of them, ...

No loot for me

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

A new signature in the home system isn't much to get excited about, but performing a blanket scan and also seeing a ship is, particularly when it looks like I should be alone. Warping to get within directional scanner range of the ship has core probes visible but no ship. ...

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 ...

Zipping past a Zephyr

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

I'm feeling kinda tired. I hope I don't cause any mistakes. But any mistakes I make will only affect my own pod, as it's just me in w-space at the moment. Well, not just me, as there's a proliferation of Sleepers in the home system, with another new site today, ...

Missing gassers, getting fuel

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

I return on-line some time after my sammich, but in the same w-space day. Nothing is happening in the home system, not even faux-blue pilots stealing our iskies, but I have the start of a constellation to roam, so jump to our neighbouring class 3 system. It's still unoccupied, still ...

Reddish blues

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

Yesterday's break turned in to a bubble bath and sleep, although not at the same time. I return to space refreshed, and with a new constellation to uncover, for early reconnaissance instead of a late roam. I don't get far to start with, not when finding a pair of Tengu ...

Exploration finds an exploration ship

Friday, July 6th, 2012

New day, new constellation, and Fin's been mapping it. My glorious leader reports on a dead K162 coming from class 6 w-space in to our home system, as well as a still existent C4 K162. She's in the class 4 system now, looking for occupation and further wormholes, and asks ...

Scanning empty space still takes time

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

My little corner of space looks pretty quiet, which is a pleasant start to the evening. Launching scanning probes, blanketing the system, and warping to a more central point shows the home system to be clear of hostile ships and unexpected signatures, which lets me take time to see what ...

Another notch for a Noctis

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

I'm back in space and looking for something to shoot. I was in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system six weeks ago and the tower I have listed remains in the same place, although no one is home. A blanket scan confirms no obvious ships are in the system and ...
