Resolving the Prophecy

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Chomping down a sammich makes the rumblings in my tummy as quiet as those in w-space currently. Roaming through our scanned constellation finds our neighbouring class 4 system empty, and the C5 next along the route quiet, as a new Tengu strategic cruiser appears at the tower only to log ...

Exploring behind combat

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

Curse my timing. In trying to moderate my time in space and be a more rounded capsuleer I have managed to miss out on colleagues popping not only a Loki strategic cruiser engaging Sleepers but also a Crane transport ship out collecting planet goo. Hopefully I haven't missed all the ...

Comings and goings

Friday, July 29th, 2011

I've left the boring class 3 w-space system behind me, but not w-space itself. Back out in high-sec empire space I wake up to see a contract waiting for me. Inspecting and accepting the contract gets me a set of bookmarks that looks like they'll take me to our class ...

Getting away from nothing

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Tomorrow never comes, which is particularly annoying if I keep having to promise to myself that these pilots will collect gas tomorrow. I am still in the class 3 w-space system I became isolated in, and have been hoping that the occupants would make nice fat targets of themselves in ...

Staying on the inside

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Why am I waking up in a class 3 w-space system? It must have been quite a night. Ah, now I remember, we were waiting for a scout nine jumps from home and the universe disappeared. Rather than stay up far too late in the hopes of dashing back home, ...

Nine systems deep

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

The end of our w-space constellation still hasn't been found. Glorious leader Fin is out scanning and is 'in C5d jumping in to C3a', or in the fourth class 5 w-space system we've encountered in our path and jumping in to the first class 3 system. All I need to ...

Miner skeet

Monday, July 25th, 2011

What with my proclivity to shoot miners I find in w-space, corporate conversation turns to that subject, and wanders a little in the process. And a couple of minutes later, my character sheet blinks: Gold medal! My colleagues are the best.

Getting diverted

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Maybe I can spend a few more minutes here. 'Here' being the class 4 w-space system where a Tengu strategic cruiser and Orca industrial command ship have appeared on d-scan, previously unseen when I scanned my way through the system earlier. And now two Hulk exhumers and an Iteron hauler ...

Scanning and scouts

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

I'm taking an early look around this morning. My initiative may pay off too, as there are two wormholes to be found in the class 5 w-space bivouac. One is the static connection to a class 4 w-space system, the other is a K162 coming from deadly class 6 w-space. ...

From snake to salvager

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

I'm still in the class 5 w-space system bivouac, but glorious leader Fin is elsewhere. She's only as far as the neighbouring C4, scanning the constellation, so I go out to join her. There are two Orca industrial command ships, a Rorqual capital industrial ship, and a Tempest battleship all ...
