I couldn't leave my warrior side in Null when I quit it seems. When i got back into Eve I flew around a bit thinking about what I would do. The answer came simple enough as I had countless blueprints stored in Jita.
So flash forward another day and I'm settled in Vaankalen, a wonderful and quiet system three jumps from Jita. My assets in Null are pretty much liquified or on sale. Vaankalen has become a home and I feel secure in the system. Another day passes and a character by the name Wizard Buster moves in. He flies a Catalyst and what I personally know of the Catalyst is its a gank ship. Well tuned for quickly killing barges in groups or a frigate by itself.
Now I'm aware of him and as suspected he began coming back to the system station in capsules and with a bright flashing combat tag. He's ganking ships. For a few days I leave him be as I had more important things to do like build a long held blueprint copy and get out of poverty.
A few more days pass and things are better so I decide to mine in system. Wizard is online and in system. He warps into the asteroid field that myself and another mining frigate are occupying, and then he warps off. Minutes pass and he comes back in a small ship and begins bumping miners to check for AFKers and finds one. During this time I made it clear that I would react if he engaged anyone in the field by keeping a lock on him.
After bumping the miner away from his rock, Wizard warps off again. Its clear whats about to happen so I move closer to the AFK miner and prepare. My own frigate fitted with an ECM Jammer specific to Wizards ships. As expected Wizard warps back onto grid with a Catalyst and burns for the AFK miner. I lock onto him and as soon as he engages the miner i turn on the ECM. My drones charge forward to attack the new threat and police warp onto grid to crush the pirate acts of the Catalyst. My ECM all the while trying its best to jam out the Catalysts systems fails, and the AFK miner is killed then murdered in his capsule. Wizard isnt getting off the field though as the police have locked down all his systems and my drones have torn away all his armor.
The Catalyst explodes and the pod is ejected, getting away before I could achieve a lock and kill it. I regret not being able to save the AFKer but its my first kill since being back and it was fun. This was a long story for a simple sentence lol.http://www.shatteredstar.org/groups/eve/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=5981
The tale continued later that morning as Wizard attempted to kill Khi herself, but Khi saw it coming and adjusted her mining frigate to have a high shield tank. The would-be killer warped on top of her frigate and opened fire paying no attention to the Concord Police still on grid. This was the final attempt as earlier in the day he sent me a mail admitting defeat in his own way.
