Wormholes Are Lonely Places

It’s been a while since I’ve had serious contact with my corpmates. Real life comes before Eve, I’m all to familiar with the story. It doesn’t make the empty home system any easier to bare however. I log in to silent comm channels and an almost empty system.

I scan the two unknown signatures down in a few minutes. Our static is situated convientently right on the border of hi-sec space in Minmatar’s Metropolis region, a mere six jumps away from Hek. Great, if the entire Minmatar Navy didn’t have order to shoot me down on site. The half a billion isk worth of sleeper loot sitting in our hangar encourages me to make the trip anyway. After I add one more anomaly’s worth of loot to the bin.

I grab my Legion out of the hangar and warp into the anomaly. The great thing about having a static wormhole right on the border of hi-sec is no one is looking for wormholes there. Experienced pvpers are usually just passing through on the way to empire trade hubs, while less experienced players are just getting their feet wet with low security systems and not especially worried about a wormhole they need to scan down.

Both the anomaly and the selling go off without a hitch. Nuru has logged on at this point, but he is still attending to matters in k-space. I decide to replace my recently lost pair of pilgrims and get it fitted. The hour is late though, and I doubt I have another 40 jumps left in me for another round trip to Amarr. I resign to turn in early in the hopes that working from home tomorrow will allow me some extra time to pick it up soon.

Go For Broke

The last few days have been pretty hectic, which always leads to limited Eve time at best. That time has been fairly productive however. The corp has lucked out with only the static lo-sec worm holes present for the most part. Since we didn’t pass through them, the K162 connection never appeared on the other side and we were left to our own devices for close to a full 48 hours.

Let the harvesting of resources begin!

It was a bad time to be a asteroid or gas cloud in our system. We looted everything. Ever anomaly, every gas cluster, everything we could loot, harvest, mine, or salvage we did. The profits haven’t even been fully calculated yet but it was impressive I’m sure.

With the new boom in local economy, I finally decided to head out into k-space once a new lo-sec K162 popped up and buy a Legion. Damn, those things are expensive. The corp wallet was drained buying the subsystems and a few of the higher end modules I needed for the Sleeper fit I had in mind. We’re still not quite there, but we’re close. Another week or so and I’ll be able to fly it into our system and start to really make some profit for us.

All in all it’s been a pretty interesting and fulfilling week. I broke 27 million skillpoints and am flying a Legion, two things I never expected to see in Eve to be honest. It’s been a hell of a ride so far and I’m really looking forward to what is coming up next.
