Basgerin Pirate

  • YC117-03-30

    Las Vegas - Walking into any room where a significant number of capsuleers have gathered is always interesting. Typically, the room darkens slightly, no matter how brightly lit the area is as the color of attire is predominantly grey and black. The second noticeable fact is that they are often loud. Laughing, cheering and jeering drowns out most other sounds. I know it is a generalization, but it seems that they love to be heard, if not necessarily seen. On one particular occasion, upon entering a [...]

    • YC117-03-06

      Impass - In the outlying regions of 0.0 capsuleers make a hobby of obtaining and flying the most valuable or 'shiny' ships they can possibly find. Among the vast archives of possible targets these pirates search for, none is more shiny then the Revenant-class Supercarrier, designed by Sansha's Nation to lead major incursions into Empire space. Before now it is believed that only two Capsuleer-piloted Revenants have ever been destroyed, until the recent loss of Ingeneer's Revenant in Impass. Image of a [...]

      Tensions heat up between several wormhole residents

      • YC117-02-20

        Wormhole space continues to offer riches and dangers to capsuleers new and old. It is not uncommon for squabbles over these lucrative pockets to break out, and one such fight seems to be brewing between Hard Knocks Inc. (HK) and No Holes Barred (NOHO). Wormhole space, or w-space, as it is known to many is largely unknown to many capsuleers. However there are large numbers of pilots who flock to the uncharted systems in search of wealth and fortune. Within the secluded systems ruled by ship-affecting [...]

There are many reasons that capsuleers are drawn together in this cause. For some, the rewards in loyalty points and ISK are reason enough to risk their assets. For others, dreams of faction drops in the form of Supercarrier blueprints and the like are reason enough. Others still look to create an environment where all are welcome, regardless of [...]
