The friendly folks of COGG

Touring through a remote section of Provi null today, I ran into the terrifically friendly folks at COGG. [ 19:45:56 ] Thrice Hapus > o7! This is quite a busy constellation. [ 19:46:09 ] Momiji Sakora > o7 Thrice, welcome to COGG HQ <3 [ 19:46:11 ] OfTheAncients > o7 eve scout! [ 19:46:13 ]…

0001: Angels.

The angels appeared to Jefry Thrice-blessed Hapus and spoke to him out of the black-hole darkness in the dead of the night. He was wide awake and scared. He couldn’t have been more than five years old. There had been a fire earlier that evening. One of those dirt-cheap Minmatar appliances that FreeEx hauls in had…

Reticent Russians.

Gating back to a constellation with only one system left to map is not always super-fun, especially when there is no wormhole connection from Thera to anywhere too close. I jumped through a wormhole to Nalvula, and then jumped gate-to-gate almost all the way to ZLZ-1Z. Only a few systems had any capsuleers present, so…

Fit as a fiddle.

Back in Thera after losing the Φιλάδελφος, I faced into the task of purchasing and fitting a replacement vessel. I was only one system shy of completing my tour of 0-8MWQ, and I wanted to get that completed as soon as possible. I don’t like to have uncompleted tasks looming over me, if I can avoid it…

Pod express.

Growing up on our farm, I learned that the sun doesn’t shine all the time. Which is a good thing, because growing things and animals (and people!) need the rain, too. After the silence of the last few systems, it was a nice break to find a friend in VI2K-J. was There was only one…

Synergy of Silence.

After leaving the friendly chat with my new friends in 5T-KM3, I moved on to LS9B-9. This is space controlled currently by Synergy of Steel, a few of whom were present when I gated in. In my typical fashion, I introduced myself to the locals. [ 14:52:43 ] EVE System > Channel changed to Local :…

Vale of the Not So Silent.

Today’s leg of the Goodwill Tour found me in the 0-8MWQ constellation of Vale of the Silent. There was a Thera connection to a ZLZ-1Z, which could not have been more fortuitous. And it was so nice to find a friend almost right away. [ 14:12:10 ] EVE System > Channel changed to Local :…

Look but don’t touch.

As promised to the residents of this area of Branch, I left all the signatures in these two systems alone. I scanned them down in order to log them, but I did not run any sites. When I am in a populated region and the residents make a request of me, I honor it as…

Great chat.

In addition to securing about 23 million ISK from a couple Guristas relic sites today, I also had the pleasure to run into a couple members of DARKNESS. while I was scanning and warping around S-B7IT. I am not adept at explaining what I am up to out here in null, but I think the…

Pith.

Today in 0C-PZ4, I did not run into any capsuleers. Fortunately, the OJ-A8M system held a few signatures to scan down, including a couple ruined Guristas monuments, where I was able to secure roughly 17 million kredits in salvaged goods. Money’s not the most important element on the goodwill tour, but it is needed. “Necessary but…
