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 following excerpt from my transcript of our chat in local sets the tone fairly well.

New Eden is a rough place, to be sure. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have great capsuleer citizens like Sirius. Happy hunting, my new friend!
