  • Eve Online – New Character Exploration Alpha Challenge…

    November 22, 2019 by

    It’s been a quiet few days, just a few Venture kills and not a lot else to write about. To be truthful I’ve been ship spinning a lot and have also been preparing one of my alts for sale. During a discussion with a few like-minded types over Discord on Wednesday, it was put to… Read more

  • Dead End…

    November 6, 2019 by

    Time to go on another roam. Back at Sasta having finished sorting through assets to be moved and sold, I was at a loss as to what to do. I’m in a bit of a funk with the game at the moment if I’m truthful. I’d like to play with others, but there are so… Read more

  • Consolidation…

    November 4, 2019 by

    It’s that time of year again. Time to get my sh*t together and a clone jump to Solitude to assess what needs to be moved and sold. I tend to accumulate a lot of ‘loot’, most of which I’ll never use and can be put to better use as liquid isk. Sadly I’m a consumate… Read more

  • It’s been a while…

    October 30, 2019 by

    Wow, a few weeks away from EVE and I’m rusty as hell. I’ve logged in each day to collect the daily skillpoints but today I decided to have a decent session as it’s probably going to be my only day off work for quite a few days to come. Also my wifi is fixed… I… Read more

  • Speaking out…

    October 8, 2019 by

    I want this game to be fun. Not a chore, not stressful, just fun. I know EVE means more to some than others, in fact many people invest a lot of real life money into it and have multiple accounts. Others take their gaming seriously and like to be the best at what they do.… Read more

  • Frustratiosed…

    September 26, 2019 by

    I got an early finish today, so out in the Vital Spark it was to hunt for booty… booty belonging to other people, that is. Or so I thought. I first regrouped and dropped some modules off at Sasta before logging on an older character and extracting two injectors from him to augment some skills… Read more

  • As I was saying…

    September 20, 2019 by

    … alpha exploration can be very profitable. I’d logged yesterday in Brundakar, a few jumps from Rens and debated whether or not to move back to Sasta with my loot or start scanning there. Two wormholes, both K162s and leading to C3 and C1 systems were present so in I went. Both systems proved to… Read more

  • Wormhole Exploration – Alpha Style

    September 19, 2019 by

    The thought occured to me this morning that I had yet to fully immerse myself in exploration as an alpha. I have several trained, but I’ve never really used them other than for quick bounces around lowsec and the odd dive here and there when I haven’t wanted to lose ships. So just how much… Read more

  • And relax…

    September 17, 2019 by

    With my first full day off work for some time arriving, I waved goodbye to the kids and decided to do a little hunting before downtime. Unfortunately I had made the mistake of mentioning Ikea to my partner which would limit my game time until around 14:00. No matter, plenty of time to get some… Read more

  • Turbulent Blue…

    September 10, 2019 by

    … in more ways than one. I had a small window of opportunity to play this evening so I was eager to start scanning and make something of the small amount of time available. I’d docked in Mohas, a backwater hisec system in Derelik and decided to start scanning there. I was pleased to find… Read more

  • Taking it out on a random…

    September 5, 2019 by

    Hi all, sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been doing a lot of PVE over the past few weeks. Mainly to get some additional funds in for stuff I have planned, but also because I want to run one of the epic arc mission lines, namely the Minmatar one and as such I’ve… Read more

  • Double trouble…

    August 20, 2019 by

    Just a quick blog entry today to detail an unexpected fight this afternoon. Most of today had been spent ferrying loot to hubs and refitting ships. My main needed a go-to Tengu in Derelik, so we both cloned and set about retrieving one from Balle. Having gotten the Tengu refitted for PvP I did a… Read more

  • Escape from Solitude…

    August 19, 2019 by

    I logged in Heluene last night having cloned to find a route to pull through some loot to hisec. I had quite a bit to shift (in isk value) and wasn’t willing to risk a long chain of connections, so I gave it up as a bad job and decided to do a little scanning… Read more

  • Tumbleweed…

    August 17, 2019 by

    It’s been a very quiet EVE week. I had every intention of playing quite a bit, but life has a way of distracting and diverting you. What started as a great weekend last Friday, having seen my rota for the coming seven days, quickly turned into a nightmare. I was unceremoniously dumped with being on… Read more

  • Inject for success, maybe…

    August 10, 2019 by

    Another day, another wormhole… and I’m still not bored, there’s always something to see or someone to do (or be done, of course). Lots of PVE for me this morning, taking advantage of a quiet constellation whilst everyone’s asleep. My children were occupied with screen time, so I figured I’d join in. I made just… Read more

  • Paying it forward…

    August 7, 2019 by

    Just a quick trip out in the Vital Spark this evening. Literally one jump into the next system and into a wandering C3. I’ve spent much of the evening on my alt running calm and agitated Abyss sites for the first time. I really like the Dark ones, and the ambience is incredible. I’ll be… Read more

  • Nothing Ventured…

    August 3, 2019 by

    It was hard to EVE today. Weekends always are. For the first time in longer than I can remember I’ve had a few days off work in a row. Yesterday was spent with the kids visiting a local animal sanctuary and buying them clothes for our pending vacation. Today was chores day, and in between… Read more

  • A little alone time…

    August 1, 2019 by

    I’ve temporarily relocated to Solitude. Not for any particular reason other than a desire to see places that I haven’t seen for many years. Most of my formative years were spent out here, exploiting the riches that a low population offers. Sadly now it’s not as quiet, but I’ve been having fun making some isk,… Read more

  • Profit and loss…

    July 24, 2019 by

    This evening started in a pretty mundane fashion. I had shopping to do and things to sell, so I stripped down the worm I ‘stole’ from the wormhole a few days ago, piled up my exploration loot and headed to Amarr to put up a few market orders and offload some salvage. I also wanted… Read more

  • Ambition is critical…

    July 23, 2019 by

    After a gruelling 30hr shift at work, I returned home to spend some time with the children and squeeze in at least an hour of EVE time. I work away from home a lot so I value these times, and as such some personal pleasures have to give way. My wife is also very understanding… Read more

  • A victim’s perspective…

    July 23, 2019 by

    Morning guys. I’m at work this morning so just a quick, no-frills update. Following on from my last post, I was thrilled to receive a response from Apollo Lemmont, the unlucky Magnate pilot I engaged with. Apollo was kind enough to provide me with his perspective on the lead up to our engagement and its… Read more

  • A little aside…

    July 21, 2019 by

    Yes yes, I know, I was leaving for the night… I got a pass for a few hours so I decided to go and make some isk on a whim. Not happy with the idea of screwing around in lowsec for hours on end for minimal gain and the slim chance of bagging an explorer,… Read more

  • Burning for riches…

    July 21, 2019 by

    I woke up this morning eager for action. Sadly I’d docked up in deepest, darkest Derelik last night so action was the last thing on the mind of most of the local denizens. Down here the pace of life is pretty slow, but I find myself drawn to it time and time again because of… Read more

  • Fayte, what is best in life?

    July 21, 2019 by

    “To linger cloaked near your enemies, see them unaware of your presence and to imagine their surprise as you decloak!” Ok, maybe that doesn’t have the same ring to it. Sorry, Conan. So I awoke in Derelik yesterday evening, Sasta to be precise and fresh from a brief excursion to null last night. Just a… Read more

  • One Woman, One Spaceship, Many Holes…

    July 21, 2019 by

    Hey, I’m Fayte. I’m an alt. My main likes to PVP, but I like to explore and make dank spacebux. Lately though I’ve started to err towards killing things. This blog documents my travels and my adventures. Most will be lacklustre, some will be boring, none will have great content. Fly safe!
