As the once so quiet corner of nullsec I was based in has recently become the home to a new group of renters, whom did not take kindly to me working out of their home, I returned to lowsec to finish up the last bit of security status work left before I can once again enter highsec. Marcus joined up forces with me, having just finished training for a Hawk, and we plotted a course towards Black Rise. It is in many ways fitting that the Guristas would pave the path to my ‘redemption’. And then I don’t just mean because I had a cargo hold full of kinetic torpedoes.
After explaining the plan to cycle the belts in search of Guristas battleships, we set off, and were soon joined by Ethan Blacknova, the most recent addition to our roster. And when some time later Mjalnar – aka Zagamesh, whom is very much not dead to the great surprise of many – entered the fleet we had a fully-fledged hunting force. Of course, when having a ship capable of keeping capsuleers from warping off once engaged, and able to survive under sentry fire for a little while, it is only normal that our combat records saw some additions along the way. Nothing spectacular, but ISK is ISK, and cyno generators happen to sell well. The real profit we made off of capsuleers however came for a Cormorant which foolishly fired upon Ethan at a stargate. Not sure what that pilot was thinking, but the sentry guns quickly vaporized the destroyer. Lucky us, it was fitted with Tech II modules and had faction ammo loaded. Much hilarity as well when one of the locals remarked about the fool that “Weren’t you in a Cormorant just moments ago?”.
Determined to have my highsec access restored that very day we continued till it was long past my usual sleep time, but as I’ve now again awoken and am chronicling this, I find myself able to enter 0.5 systems. The rest of the way will be done through mission work.
