Well, this is a first. Someone that didn't want to face the wrath of Jack Dancer's Rifter!
I was cruising around Ravarin looking for trouble. With five strange (and I do mean strange!) faces staring back at me in the local channel I had hopes of some excitement. I flew to my safe spot about 300k from the Stegette gate to see what might be lurking around that exit and there was a Crusader flown by Stridsflypla_ (I've not included the last letter of his name to protect his identify in this account of his shameful conduct). I sat and waited and the Crusader headed my way. Excellent!
I overheated everything and cleared the decks for combat!
It turns out a Crusader can go fast. Really fast. He was moving along at about 4.5k as he approached and when he got within about 50k of me I headed towards him at my max velocity of about 1k. Death to Crusaders!
But I couldn't get within 20k of him. Try as I might - he kept the range and I chased after him. For about 2 minutes. He ran and I chased.
Eventually, I warped back to the gate and went on my way confident that this Crusader pilot was suffering from a bad case of Rifter Fear.
***Postscript - a couple days later I saw this same pilot in a gatecamp with some of the other familiar locals - so it's possible that he was stalling for time with me until the rest of his gang could arrive...
