Burning Here, Burning There

My first roam for the month and we burned in a Pandemic Legion fleet fire three jumps out from our starting point.  They were out on a roam in subcaps.  No hot drops just a much larger, much stronger fleet.

The problem was that our scout had headed out to scout and was about ten jumps ahead of us.  Normally, not a big deal but local spiked and our lemming found himself tackled by PL and burning in a fire as he went for the gate.

A few of the PL ships came in.  We wound up with one more tackled and we bailed.  Our logi stayed on grid to support the one ship as he tried to get to the gate.  They did discover that their two Augoror's could tank the Bhaal's neuts.  But, when the logi got tackled our FC said, "fuck it we're burning with the fleet".  We turned around and leapt down the throat of the PL gang only to have them neut us out and sniff out our little cruiser souls.

Damn.  As the FC went down he ordered the rest of us to bail. I recalled my drones (because they are expensive) and found myself pointed. I'd not have made it off the gate anyway because armor Thorax.  I have not yet developed a love for armor ships.  But, pointed and being shot I let local spiral up.  When there were 18 people on the field I decided to take my chances on the other side of the gate and jumped.

Ahh... empty space.  I docked and our fleet, shattered regrouped.  PL continued on its way after mowing us down.  Our trip to null was mildly delayed at this point with the tech one armor cruiser thing burned in a fire.  The FC ordered whoever could bail to bail and then make it back to reship as they could.  The FC called for assault frigates, frigates, and dictors.  Everyone undocked whatever and with a cheerfully, "Wee" we dove right back into space, scoutless again and headed off to null sec to see what we could find.

I've been in and out of null sec most of my Eve life.  Not to stay and always to visit.  Sometimes it is for ratting and sometimes it is for hunting.  The frigate packs are the most pleasant   Landing in a bubble in a swarm and burning back out to the gate while the resident bubble spider debates if they want to get involved or not.

We were rolling through quickly looking for things to kill and a fleet to fight.  Normally we spend a lot of time hunting down individual ships.  However, half the fleet needed to go to bed sooner rather than later myself included.  This changed the orientation of the fleet into something faster and both more and less predatory.  We were looking for careless ratters it appeared.

Our total score was two Enyo and a Ishtar before we bumped into another group of similar composition.   We went after them when they jumped out of the system.  A short chase and a gate fight where we were not as coordinated as we needed to be and our fleet started to go down.  They also had more e-war.  I was chasing down a Keres when the call came to bail if you could. I was out of the bubble due to my chase and able to warp out.

We regrouped and reoringized.  They chased us a short bit but we ran.  Once we were somewhat free of them, we podded the people that wanted to be podded back home and the fleet took me back to Molden Heath so that I could head off to bed.

Maybe one day!

 [15:32:10] Trig Vaulter > Sugar Kyle Nice bio - so carebear sweet - oh you have a 50m ISK bounty - so someday more grizzly  [15:32:38 ] Sugar Kyle > /emote raises an eyebrow to Trig  [15:32:40 ] Sugar Kyle > okay :)  [15:32:52 ] Sugar Kyle > maybe one day I will try PvP out When I logged in one of the first things I did was answer a question in Eve Uni Public Help. It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
