Geminate has fallen

7 07 2008

*CLANCK* The sound vibrates through the hull of my battleship as I slowly drift through the debris of enemy ships. I can sense the space, the pieces of metal, the silent cries of the stiff bodies floating by.

Victory is at hand. I spin my Megathron into a victory turn before heading for TDE, refueling, resocking and resupplying. Ready to move out again.

I am not alone in the process of ships that point the nose towards our new home. My comrades in arms fly beside me. We are not torn by race like the most of EvE but united in our purpose, in our belifs, in our destiny. The victorious, scared and majectic ships slowly make their way out of the remenants of what was former hostile space.

I salute my fellow pilots who has endured, fought and won.

I turn my megathron towards the new horizons and embrace the change that is to come.

Change is enevitable, but we shall adapt and overcome whatever the future holds as long as we stand beside eachother. This new change is a welcome one however. Geminate my home.





Geminate is falling

6 07 2008

For some time KIA has been patrolling the spacelanes in and around K25. Roadkill have been determined to make a stand in that system. Its a broken alliance but some few pilots keep the fight going. Either blind to the fact that they have lost or simply as a gesture of defiance. I like defiance.

I have before mentioned the pilot Gemstone505 from the Foundation corporation. He has led some surprising raids on our battleship fleet with his Stealth Bombers. Its a source of inspiration to behold the capsulering by this pilot.

K25 has been under siege for most of the week and this weekend the final pieces of resistance has faltered to being sporadic and uncoordinated. Unferth Devestator has been on the field several times with his Titan but it’s actual use has been minimal. A frantic hunt went on for the titan and at one point our Dictors warped in 1-2 seconds to late to catch it.

For the most part the battle of K25 has been purely won by the Battleships of Goons, DAI and KIA. The fighting has been heavy with some very well set up POS towers consisting of Energy neutralizing batteries, lazer, auto cannon batteries and warp disruptors.

The following events is taking place over multiple days but has been shortened down.

I was running a bit late the first day making my way slowly from Q-T with a single Crow for scouting.

While I was making best speed from Q-T the main fleet assembled in TDE with a large contingent of DAI moving up the pipe which it was my plan to hook up with around VSJ.

Without any incident I hooked up with DAI and moved with them to LU- where we assembled on the gate ready to jump in when the KIA fleet did.

KIA relies heavily on their remote repping battleships but the Roadkill towers could drain such a fleet in a very short time. So we had brought additional support in in shape of some logistic ships. The logistics were lost in due course of the battle but K25 was secured and all towers reinforced by the awaiting capital fleet. Myself played only a minor role in helping to slug some large antimatter charges into the POSs.

Friday the O2O system was of primary attention to KIA. Once again we had logistic ships and all ships were loaded up for a fierce fight like the ones we had faced in K25.

Also present for some odd reason was a Typhoon. I have not seen such a ship at the front line for quite some time. Actually I have not seen them really in action ever since it was proved that loading them with overdrives, nano fibers and inertia stabilizers was a hazardous plan. But here it was back again to wreck havoc.

The POS in question held some large bubbles and should have been a deathtrap but the setup of the POS could not have been more horrible. The fire from it was sporadic, mostly unguided and hopelessly out of the damage dealing league.

We set to work straight away with a battleship gang. It might not be a pretty blob of ships but it is damn effective.

We wrapped up by shooting a few guns for the hell of it while the dreads was called in for the heavy duty work.

I do hope next week will bring more excitement.





Pushing on and the Gallente Girl

18 06 2008

KIA has been making good progress since the DD of our small HAC fleet. Roadkill and SMASH (Smashkill) initially put up a decent fight but it has turned into a rout. Unorganized mass evacuation and firesales. I have seen some fighting but only in small scale so far. More on that later. First a status of the last week.

The rumor mill: Rumors has it that KIA has taken down a Roadkill Titan. This is not true.

One such incident of an unorganized evacuation resulted in the death of a high ranking officer who in shame selfdestructed his ship. Im all for good fighting and do I fall victim to a good trap I accept the consequence. The record of destruction if ofcorce a manufacture as the selfdestruction denies the record to be stored by CONCORD. We however recorded the incident by camera bots. At the same time a Charon freighter had to bite the dust so to speak.

A low security fleet called SoT has caused us some losses. They are competent led and field good ships. I hope we will se more of them in the furture. I have nothing but respect for their pilots. No smack, all professional in their manner.

Speaking of professional we currently fly side by side with the famous Goon Fleet. This is a mixed experience as they have a completely different set of rules and morals. I laugh and cry at the same time when I fly with them. I think we have succeeded in making some actualy become well drilled pilots but bear no illusion of the entire alliance as such. We had one incident where a goon member led an unknowing suspect to a KIA gang. There was pretty hefty discussion if we were to open fire or not. It was desided that we were not responsible for whoever warped to us based on a Goon scam. Down the Megathron went in a blaze of fire. Noone was proud of it but on the other hand we were not going to let people jump in and out at their pleasure. Im still not sure how I feel about it. I feel sorry for the pilot but EvE is a cruel world and being ignorant or uninformed gets you killed.

The KIA Titan has seen action once again and proudly displays the scars. It is never pretty to behold the power of the titan class ships but it sure leaves its mark on a battlefield. I hear Smashkill wear extra protection vs kinetic dammagetypes nowadays when they field a fleet.

Ive been a bit absent as I have made frequent trips to Jita to meet up with this Gallente gal. The relationship is on ice after the outbreak of hostilities between our bloodlines. We shall see where all this outbreak of hostilities lead. So far im staying well clear of the major factions.

Plans are unfolding slowly and we are pushing Smashkill furter and further into the deep areas of their domain. I feel a change in the solar winds…
