Vengeance at last!

First of all I want to start the post by linking this:

 >>>>AT LAST!!!<<<<<

The Vengeance has eluded my killboard for quite some time now. I've always known my Wolf can take one down with relative ease, but the circumstances never played out right. This one was piloted by a fairly new pilot and he still gave me a run for my money. Especially because I forgot to turn on the afterburner...but screw it, I'm taking this kill and putting it on my hall of fame!

Taking no Bull in 2012!

Have you heard? Or maybe you’ve seen it? Most certainly you’ll soon feel it! What the hell am I talking about? I’m talking about Bull 2012! Jet cans spreading the word have sprouted up everywhere. You must have at least noticed them, surely? Or the increase in Concord patrols? No? Man, you gotta wake up and read the news brother!

Don’t worry man, I got your back. Here, have a flyer:

Rock you like a Hurricane

Recently I made a return to wormhole space along with Sorn Nordvind. You can read about our exploits on his blog post here. Needless to say, the crave for sleeper wrecks and glorious nanoribbons have returned,  but I wasn’t happy with my Hurricane fit.

I reread my old posts and reviewed old lossmails. I remembered Immortalus, my old workhorse, and how fond I was of its passive shield tank. I then read in one of my posts that its passive shield tank didn’t hold under heavy sleeper fire. I loaded the simulation of the old fit and started tweaking.

Thou shalt smite them with Malediction!

Hull - Executioner Class    
Developer - Khanid Innovation
Role - Interceptor

Interceptors utilize a combination of advanced alloys and electronics to reduce their effective signature radius. This, along with superior maneuverability and speed, makes them very hard to target and track, particularly for high caliber turrets.
In addition to robust electronics systems, the Khanid Kingdom's ships possess advanced armor alloys capable of withstanding a great deal of punishment. Generally eschewing the use of turrets, they tend to gear their vessels more towards close-range missile combat.

It’s not only a nice looking ship, but also an effective brawler. I’ve finally finished training for this beauty and soon had it fitted for combat.

A Century of Kills

100 kills under the BRRC flag! As a cherry on top, my 100th kill was a solo reaper kill! Thank you to Sorn for offering to sit that one out, allowing me to have my "golden killmail"! Ryuu McLoud wasn't all that happy to lose his Procurer and started whining in local. Me and Sorn put an end to that. (technically that was my 100th kill, but don't kill the mood you technical bastard!) We started a fleet of rookie ships consisting of me (Reaper), Sorn (Inquisitor) and Tomba (Velator), but didn't find anything to shoot at.

Clash of Rifters

I’ve been flying in Essence a lot recently. Sorn Nordvind (he just started blogging himself, go read it – here) suggested that Essence was a good place to find fights so I went up there to see for myself. He was right, and there wasn’t any lack of BRRC presence either. Whenever me and Sorn fleet up we are soon joined by fellow rebels to join in the good times.

This morning while flying alone in my Rifter, I found a fight that had me on the edge of my seat. I was on my way to drop off the Rifter in Vitrauze, my makeshift base of operations, when another outlawed Rifter pilot landed near me. I decided to engage him, and he did the same. He was just out of my scramble and web range, my bullets didn’t touch him while he was slowly punching dents into me. I was being kited, and knowing the 400mm plates on my Rifter was slowing me down considerably, I cursed myself for engaging my turrets too soon, cutting off my escape route through the gates.

Against the odds

Yesterday I found two ratting T1 frigates, a Kestrel and Tristan, while in my favourite Cyno hunting pocket. I climbed into a Rifter and plunged myself to the belt.

I landed 30km off of them, and figured they would high tail out of there, but the Kestrel was heading straight for me. I switched on the afterburner and headed for an orbit. He opened fire first, and I followed suit. The Tristan was also getting closer, but I focused on the Kestrel first as the Tristan was piloted by a much younger pilot.

Two Rifters are better than one at a time

First: Read about how Jack Dancer and I bagged a Drake in our Rifters.

Second: Stay on his blog and have a read through his stuff, I always enjoy reading about his adventures.

Woah! Wait! Before you dispose of me, I have a little story to tell myself.

I was on a lonely trek through low sec in my ever trusty Rifter. I wandered into Paala, a null sec entry system, and chased a rookie Rifter pilot around until he curled up in a safe spot. But it wasn't long before another Rifter appeared on my D-Scan. My D-Scan capability is getting better and soon I had him located at the sun. I engaged warp drive. A quick check up on the new pilot's info revealed that he was a rookie too.

All Hail Joe Struck!

He even came up with a slogan!
I asked Joe Struck to make a signature from my little self-portrait clip art thingy that you'll see from my banner. He came up with the what you see on the right.

Go visit his website to see more examples of
his brilliance. Then support him and spice up your blog/site/signature or even just get something for yourself. GO NOW!!!
