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 ]…

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…

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…

First contact.

I ran into another capsuleer today for the first time on the goodwill tour! While scanning in JRZ-B9, stab inferno popped in and we had the following brief exchange: [ YC118.08.21 13:42:55 ] EVE System > Channel changed to Local : JRZ-B9 [ YC118.08.21 13:44:19 ] stab inferno > seriously ? [ YC118.08.21 13:44:22 ]…

Light and dark.

I started my goodwill tour of null today in Branch. The locals did not utter a word. Nor did they aggress. They popped out of their station in ones and twos. Checking me out, I guess. I assured whoever undocked that I was merely a friendly explorer. Their outfit is called “DARKNESS.” (with the period). Kind…
