Wormhole Adventure: The Final Curtain

The wormhole adventure was now all but over. It had been quite an experience and had thrown up many new areas of gameplay that we hadn't experienced before. We had stories and memories aplenty, some good and some bad, and so it was a mixed feeling of relief and sadness that we were finally leaving behind the hole.

Wormhole Adventure: The Tower of Pain

The end was near. All ships marked for evacuation were now safely stored out of the wormhole. All that was left was to finalise the sale of the wormhole and hot foot it out of there. We pick up the story with Duke, just as he is dismantling the POS.

Wormhole Adventure: Evacuation

Vincent R'lyeh and Miura Bull were tasked with the evacuation of the remaining ships that were in the wormhole. Vincent explains what went down on the evacuation op ...

Wormhole Adventure: Moving Out

It seemed strange that we now had the wormhole to ourselves. We'd spent over a month down the hole now and I think deep down our heart wasn't really in it any more. We longed for our tech 1 frigates and chasing those pesky plex farmers!

Wormhole Adventure: An Indirect Eviction?

It had been quiet for a few days now after the incident in and around Istodard. The war dec had now expired and our general levels of wormhole activity were somewhat dwindling.

Wormhole Adventure: Istodard Exit

We'd had a bubble camp on the hole for about an hour or so before those involved had to log off and do other things. We'd had no traffic so it was disappointing to end the session with no kills. Our lowsec exit in the C3 led into Istodard in Molden Heath, the home system of Calamitous-Intent.

Wormhole Adventure: Stick or Twist?

After a few days of repairing their damaged modules and us debating our next move, our adorable neighbours played their hand first and built a brand new POS. This time it was very well defended, a Large Amarr Control Tower with all the trimmings.

Wormhole Adventure: The POS Bash

So much for the beginning; so much for the end, foreshadowed, perhaps, at the burning control tower, when we see the men cowering beneath their shields, their leader crazy with talk, wounded and covering his bloodied face with his white-gloved hands. In the distance a Hound wreck smoulders.

Wormhole Adventure: Night Hunt

Wolf Rayet’s light shines full
silver on blood-red
coating the shadows
populating the space by the control tower
where I wait, knowing.
The stars, tiny punctures
in the ink black eternity
announce our arrival.

Wormhole Adventure: Plan of Action

We had decided to move in some heavy gear and strike the enemy POS. We now felt that we were in this deep enough that there was only one option. We had to remove these guys from the wormhole.

Wormhole Adventure: Fortress Upgrade

In the middle of the night Duke had dismantled the majority of our POS and had begun setting up our new POS, an evil monster of a POS. Our new home would be much better defended. A Large Sansha Control Tower with an entire arsenal of lasers, jammers and other nasty bits would await our neighbours when they looked over the fence in the morning.

Wormhole Adventure: War!

The Naga was dust, but this guy was mad.

Real mad.

First he declared war on us.

Laguna bonanni has declared war on Screaming Hayabusa.
Within 24 hours fighting can legally occur between those involved. If war is due to a corporation at war joining an alliance, then the war starts immediately instead.

Wormhole Adventure: Site Runners

Mostly we ran the sites in the C3 with a Tengu and Legion, and later Tengu and Loki. We also had a Sleipnir with us on occasion. We would pretty much blitz our way through the sites working as a team, salvaging the materials and then leaving with our booty. It was a relaxing way to make some ISK I remember thinking to myself. It was also efficient enough, for the most part.

Wormhole Adventure: The Eyes of the Enemy

For over a week now we had been playing a game of cat and mouse with our neighbours. It seemed all they did was sit in their POS. They probably thought the same about us.

Wormhole Adventure: Gateway to the Unknown

The beauty of wormhole life runs deep, but it isn't just down the holes where the scenery is stunning. The revolving doors lifestyle of the opening and closing of exits to far and distant lands meant that access to these new lands was only a few probe hits away. At times it felt like I was spinning a wheel that would give me the chance to step into a different part of New Eden at my choosing.

Wormhole Adventure: Lady Luck

A few days into the stay and people were starting to get settled. The routine of logging on, scanning the new holes and sites and then updating the map was, well, just that, the routine. We'd ran a few sites already and it was nice to be dealing in this new currency of sleeper loot.

Wormhole Adventure: Moving In

The station was eerily quiet but for the buzz of something in the distance. I couldn't tell what it was, a machine of some sorts, background noise, just noticeable. Outside, the late afternoon dwindled in that strange old way, the sun baking the cracked walls of the old station, then as the afternoon died and the cold set in everything seemed, golden. A slanted golden sunlight on that familiar blue-green sky. It was all nice and homely, soft and warm.
