Spring Break!

When we last left Jack Dancer his compadres were being fascinated by shiny activities and Jack’s flying/destruction time had been curtailed.  Well, those fascinations have continued – especially for the explorer who has come across some very profitable drops in 3/10 and 4/10 DED sites.  Less so for the traders who saw the market for their formerly very profitable warfare links crash with the recent introduction of T2 links...  I'm still trying to unload a few hundred of the T1 variety at bargain prices...

I did manage to scrape together the three PLEX to take advantage of the "Power of Two" promotion.  That new character is well along the training path for stealth bombers.

Jack has continued to fly around low sec space pretty much on a daily basis looking for trouble, but trouble flees from of him (or vice versa).  And Jack has moved several fully equipped Rifters of Doom to the top secret staging area for the Black Rebel’s Spring Offensive.  These rifters are designed for glorious explosions.

Jack has continued training the Infamous Rifter Plan.  All of Jack’s gunnery skills are at V, so those are complete.  And he’s been working on missile skills most recently.  They are all at IV with only a couple still to get to the V mark.  Once those are done I’ll remap to IM and finish up some support skills on the list that need to go from IV to V. 

But that’s going to wait for a month – Jack has a Spring Vacation.  His training is suspended while an alt on his account trains up to be able to fly the Viator cloaky transport.  It will make moving large amounts of rifters into low/null sec a bit easier.  Once this month of training is completed and the alt is flying the Viator, Jack will be back at school to finish the Infamous Rifter Plan.  

In the meantime, Jack doesn’t need to have those expensive learning implants in his head and can fly with just the standard set of implants in slots 6-10 (now with new names - the SX-1 is now the "SP-803").  I have a couple clones with just those, so the loss mails will be a bit less expensive looking when I get podded...

So hopefully, I'll have more to report in the next few days/weeks.  Stay tuned.


  1. The sx-imp should be named SP-60x not SP-80x tbh.
    Very nice blog, i always like to read about your adventures.

  2. Thanks!

    I thought SP-603 (not SP-803) was what it should be too based on their naming system. But it (at least for now) is the SP-803. I checked. Odd.
