Re: Adder. And now?

Well now, old chap, I try to play the game with a straight bat as well. As you say, that 'Fugitive' could be a decent type who just got a bit careless, and possibly doesn't deserve to die. There are planty of rogues out there, and if like me you only fight back when you are attacked first, you will ...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

What-Ho chaps, Well in my wildest dreams I couldn't have imagined the situation I have been in for these last couple of months. I arrived at Ororqu with a load of Evil Brandy from Xeaqu. I know the Rodent folk like their Brandy and this was a particularly fine vintage. The run in-planet had been qui...

Re: Your backstory

Well, despite being stranded temporarily on Ororqu I can assure you all that I am still flying my Cobby 3, Bulldog One, and have no plans to change. She's a trusty old kite and has seen me through many jolly japes since my unexpected arrival here. The old girl just 'fits' and I can't see me being se...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

What-ho chaps, Things have been a bit quiet for old Jack recently, as I've been doing some planetary sight-seeing here and there. I'm back in the saddle now though and doing a bit of trading to try to get some military shields for Bulldog One. I've just had a hunch lately that something is going to ...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

What Ho chaps! Sterling here. I've not reported in for a while, as I've been exploring. I have now been right round Galaxy One, returning to Lave a few jumps ago. I currently have 109 kills to my name and am ranked Above Average, but continue to avoid conflict where I can. I am happy to go to the ai...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

What Ho chaps, A bit of a rum do today. I was cruising planetward at Xexedi, a rich industrial system, when I picked up a strange distress call. It was a Gecko, claiming to be 'beset by criminals' and asking for help. Now I've never come across a Gecko who was not up to no good, so I went to investi...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

What-ho Chaps, Sterling here. I've been exploring Galaxy One and having some spiffing adventures doing a bit of trading and, more and more, cleaning up some of the scum out there. I had a good tussle with a pirate the other day, in a Cobra 3 similarly equipped to my trusty Bulldog One. He targeted m...

Re: Mark III Cobbie Appreciation Thread!

What-ho chaps, Sorry about the lack of recent reports, but I've been enjoying life too much to take the time to sit down and write! Bulldog One is now very well kitted out and is rapidly becoming the scourge of all pirates and bandits here in Galaxy One. Yes, the Cobby 3 is a masterpiece...good at e...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

What a tale! Old chap you are in good company for many of us started elsewhere and arrived here by mis-chance or accident. For my part I was swallowed-up by a strange blue vortex that opened up right in front of me as I was bearing down on a Heinkel over London in 1940. Next thing I knew I was in or...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

Sterling here, reporting from Tianve. It's been a long journey from Tionisla, and Me and the old Kite have had a few adventures along the way. I've been continuing to trade and have added some more equipment to Bulldog One, who has an extra energy unit and a scanner targeting enhancement now. I've a...

What-ho Chaps, Sterling here. Well half way to Tianve now, and things are getting a bit more lively! I'm doing some trade en route and have continued to equip the old Kite. She has heat shielding, an extra energy unit and an aft beam laser now. I also had a run-in with some rum character in an Asp.....

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

Evening, Gents. Time for another de-brief - all is well and progress is brisk. So far I've been playing a cagey game, avoiding the spacelanes and concentrating on trade. Truth is this Ace hasn't got a single kill to his name yet, but I have been concentrating on raising some cash to start equipping ...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

What-ho chaps, Sterling here. The maiden voyage of my Cobra Mk III 'Bulldog One' was largely a great success if a little eventful at one point. Only 100Cr, what! Not enough, so I sold my missiles to raise more cash and bought some Ale to take to Zaonce. By avoiding the 'lanes I was able to get there...
