Cartel SAR gone awry

Posted in Journal with tags , , , , , , on 2010-11-14 by rustpunk

No, I don’t plan to talk much about where I’ve been lately. Let’s say it involved a lot of drinking and leave matters there. I should probably note, however, that I’ve gotten myself into a contract with the Angel Cartel. So far? Totally worth it. Talk to me offline if you want to know more.

'Exxxotica B-roll' by Anna FischerI got back out in Emolgranlan today with a Hurricane in my hangar. This way, I figured, if somebody shot at me while I went out on SAR duty, I could come back and finish the job. I ran across a mission contractor in a CNR who shot at me, but when I returned, he’d already fled the scene. The local Angels didn’t really understand why I had appeared, I guess, since they later shot out my Vigil from under me. Too bad, because I had a couple of nice girls on board… Still, I got some nice equipment out of it all, so in the end I made a decent profit on the sortie.

Later, though, I ran across a Drake who fired on me as well. When I returned in the Hurricane, he also fled. I holed up nearby in D-scan range and waited. Sure enough, after a few minutes, I saw a Drake on scan again. Hm, different ship name? No matter, he’s probably trying a little psyops or something.

Unfortunately for me, this Drake had come prepared. A Drake that flew faster than a Hurricane? With a point equipped? I hadn’t quite expected that, so I lost another pair of nice girls on-board the battlecruiser. Oh, and the crew. Always a few more folks looking for work, though, particularly given how many Cartel crews I’ve brought back from deadspace wreckage.

UPDATE: The girls survived. Not that it matters to me directly, but this way the others back in my suite won’t get too melancholy.


Keeping it clean

I spent some time in Emolgranlan tonight, checking out the belts and seeing what I could see. We have an ice belt out here, so I thought I’d go make sure everyone was keeping it clean.

That wasn’t entirely the case, unfortunately. They didn’t have any jetcans out but they’d left rat droppings everywhere — Angel wrecks. That just wouldn’t do, so I took whatever they’d left.

I noticed my overview showed a Domination Ambusher had met his end here, but then my sensors reported that the wreck still had some equipment left in it.

Despite the fact that I was over 100 km away, I proceeded with all due haste and found it chock full of interesting stuff. The tag and Domination Proton S looked good…

…but that Low-Grade Halo Alpha looked even better. In Heimatar, it’s only worth about 6m ISK, but that still made my day.
