An Impairor Excursion

I decided that I wanted to see one of these uncloaked structures before the entire story changed or something and they went away. So, this weekend while moving an alt from one spot to another I decided to rebel against my orderly plans of market stocking, blue print copying, and mineral hauling. I would see some of the Eve Online that I've been so invested in and playing so little of late.

My mighty Impairor undocked. Bright and sleep it lept through stargates, charged through the depths of high sec on my stealth mission for adventure. While it looked as if it had things to do there was a secret agenda. In each system I scanned my overview until suddenly, I saw it. Boldly, nay defiantly, I broke free from my autopilot route when I saw my first unidentified structure on my overview.


Bold Impairor. Fly golden bug. And fly it did with nothing but its civilian miner and laser it flew boldly towards the unknown.


I've heard about how big the uncloaked structures were. And they are amazing slender needles that sit in space surrounded by a cloud of dust. I learned that the beacon was 134 off of the structure. That did not stop me. My Impairor switched to its main engines and slowboated as only a rookie ship with an alt with no navigation skills can creep across 30k of space until I could use the 'look at'' command.


Pretty amazing stuff. I love it. I hope that we can look at a redo of stations at some point. I know that the art assets will have to be redome but I still want it anyway. I also knew that these things could be dangerous. I felt a thrill. Would drifters spawn? Would they challenge my bold Impairor?


So sleek. Pewter tinted with greens. It is more gold against the blue of the Caldari nebula. I bounced off of it.


Oh noes! An attack! Panicked I fled. Run bold Impairor! It will take you long enough to get into warp that they will cross that 100k and actually hit you at some point. Run Impairor run! Escape into the night!

I made it away. So close did they come. 123K off as I slipped into warp. I feared they would follow but I landed upon the Saisio gate alone. And I jumped.

Good by unidentified structure. Thank you for the adventure.

  1. Apparently those structures are so big that you can warp from one tip to the other...

    ...that would be fun to try if I was convinced that CCP is going to do anything for high sec dwellers. But then I wouldn't be bitter...

  3. I love how CCP Games is tying in the emerging lore with the ongoing development of EVE Online. Can't wait to see how this new story with the Drifters evolves.

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

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
