Changeable conditions

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

A corporation fleet is in our neighbouring w-space system shooting Sleepers. I could join them, if I were feeling sociable, or I could scout for the safety of the fleet, which suits me better. My choice is helped in that a Buzzard has been detected by the fleet in the ...

Scanning until spotted

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

I'm home alone again in the class 5 w-space system. Checking the bookmarks can finds references for the static wormhole here and a connection in the neighbouring class 4 system marked 'unopened'. I copy the bookmarks to my nav-comp and warp out to take a look at what's out there. ...

Covetor comeback

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

The class 4 w-space behind me has been routed of hostile capsuleers, where 'hostile' means 'not us', and I'm moving on to continue exploring the class 1 system ahead. Other corporation pilots are here and scanning, so rather than saturate the system with scanning probes I mosey over to the ...

This one's for me

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

I'm back, let's see what's happening. It looks like it's just me still, I may as well take my covert Tengu strategic cruiser out for a roam to see if the neighbours have woken up. Hullo, warping to the tower in the class 4 w-space system next door has a ...

A simple start to scanning

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

I wake up to see the orange and black nebulae of a class 5 w-space system. It's my first day in the corporation's beach house but it's business as usual, as I find myself alone. I launch probes and scan. Having more pilots, and more industrially minded pilots, has the ...

Returning to the fold

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Still on hiatus from our class 4 w-space home, glorious leader Fin and I may have opportunity to base ourselves out of w-space again. A second arm of our corporation, operating out of a class 5 system, have an exit to high-sec empire space that is close to our current ...

Secret of my success

Red and blue

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

All alone, I'll head out to scan empire space and look for more potential friends to alienate with missiles. I won't find any in the two gravimetric sites that comprise the two signatures in our high-sec home system, and I have to scan two more systems before I resolve a ...

Mangling a Manticore

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Whilst I've been watching what may well be a cardboard cut-out of a Bestower there has been some activity behind me. The class 2 w-space system I scanned my through to get to this boring class 3 system has woken up, glorious leader Fin following in behind me in her ...

Watching the ships coming in and going out again

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Fin's popping rats, I'm looking for w-space. Scanning the home system in high-sec empire space finds no signatures of interest, and one system across only holds a couple of Gurista hideouts. The third system I scan is more interesting, with two K162s coming from class 2 w-space present. I pick ...
