I've been playing EVE for just over 4 years now. During the last two weeks, my corp and I have moved over 60 jumps away from our normal base of operation in the Khanid Kingdom systems. I'm currently stationed in and around Nuken, doing missions and other corp matters.
But something occurred to me just as I was about to set out on my lastest move. EVE has 5152 systems, spread out over 60-some regions. Looking at the in-game Map (F10) and choosing to display the systems I had visited over those 4 years, I came to realize that I had barely visited a quarter of the systems in New Eden. I've basically stayed within maybe 6 regions and haven't gone beyond that.
In my last Postcard, James mentioned that he had recently visited EVE Gate and had found the site of New Eden's birth amazing. A few of us realized then that we'd never seen it. We all agreed that we should make the trip at least once.
So, today being my birthday, I've decided to get ready for a little visit. Kind of a gift to myself. Speaking of which, if you fancy me a gift, I do accept in-game ISKs (Treenara Mazouk), or a little donation (check the right column). Or maybe a little something from my Amazon wishlist? But I digress.
I recall reading in the last issue of EON, the story of a fellow capsuleer who embarked on the monumental undertaking of visiting "all" the systems of EVE, including EVE Gate. Quite a story he tells. He did so in a covert ops frigate to evade some of those less friendly elements one finds everywhere in EVE these days.
This is where I need your help.
I've never flown a covert ops ship, neither have trained for it. I do have a few EW skills trained, but I would need to know what's the best covert ship a Gallente pilot like me should fly, and what skills should I possess in order to make the safest journey. Remember here folks, I'm a Carebear!
I promise to write about it, and to send you a few postcards along the way. Now, I just need the execs of Phoenix Labs to provide me the ship and skill books, and give me enough time to go there and back again. That'll be interesting!
I've been hiding in my little corner of New Eden for far too long. It's time to spread my wings and see the universe.
