There I was defending the brave low sec miners of Sibot when yet again I met with cruching defeat from the dark forces of pirat invaders. After a short discussion and an attempt to turn them to the golden light (they had already taken the pax amarria copies from my shattered cargo hold) it turns out that I must train much harder before attempting to persue the course of justice further.

Whilst laminating my loss in my favourite bar "The Baroq" in Amarr Prime, I overheard talk of mysterios and dangerous threat lurking in wormholes. Systems of hopes and dreams, but infested with yet more vile beasts. I herd they have advance techniques but someone said certain class systems are ok to go solo. So I do some research and hit the books and shortly afterwards have a whole new module at my command, the key to these magic kingdoms the core probe luncher.

Here in lies the start of the problem. After successfully scanning down some wormholes I make the courage to enter and get to meey my enemy. The plan was to do a little reconnosence rather than a full blown retribution battle.

I jump in.

Needles to say I made some mistakes.

My first reaction upon entering is to panic. I feel horribly isolated and exposed so I warp to planet and make safetyspots as I go. Once I have calmed down I decide it is time to meet this mysterious enemy. Well tahts not going to happen as I left my probe drones in Kor Azhor. I make to retrieve them but to my horrer realise no way to return, no wormholes are on intel view to wrap to!

I am a prisoner of my own makeing.

After 1 hour here is my status.

Mayday calls in local made no response (I think I'm only one there).
Learned you can find some sites without probes.
Learned the enemy are sleepers.
Sleepers they can destroy arbitrators like they are paper bags.
I found a Navy Dominixs at some moon with a tower item but I cant fly one.
I am getting used to seing my escape capsule.
No way to get home yet.

The reason for this storey is I must renew my pilots liscense tomorrow but there are no stations.

Any experienced expolrers can help me to get home before tomorow? I entered wormhole X877 in Kor Azor.

In future I will be carful taking advice from drunk strangers in bars.

Since I was nearby anyway I just entered Kor-Azor Prime because I thought you were saying thats were your entrance wh was located.

Well, at the time of writing there are no cosmic signatures in Kor-Azor Prime. That can mean one of two things:

a) wh collapsed
b) you meant to say you entered a wh somewhere in the whole region of kor azor

If its a) then you need to get lucky and wait for someone to enter the system by chance.

If its b) you need to give the exact system where your entrance was located. So someone near to it may be kind enough to scan the wh and help you out.

Since you mentioned a Navy Dominix (which has only been available for two days or so) it is not unlikely that people are actively farming that system. Maybe you can wait for them to come online and help you (or kill you:).

Other then that if you have an up to date clone you could always pod yourself back home. Right click your capsule in space and click self destruct. 120 seconds later you should be back whereever you placed your clone(hopefully empire). All implants will be lost though...

Edit: ALSO concerning your gametime. You have 3 character slots in your account. You can use *any* character on that account to buy gtc and activate - it makes *NO* difference. So if you're worried then do this:

a) log onto alt on the account in question or create a new one
b) transfer money from the char that has it to your alt
c) fly with alt to amarr/jita whatever and update your gametime
d) you now have 30days to wait for rescue Razz

Or just self destruct your pod. You will be cloned back to your medical station and free to roam the safety of Empire again. Of course...at the cost of your implants.

My gratitude for the offers of help and advice. I have managed to open a deep space signal to a long lost cousin who is about now registering my liscense. He must go through a Minmatar dealer but In my disadvantaged position I must make exsceptions (thank you for the alts suggestion).

I made another error and have not kept up my payments on my clone services. I was due a payment 400,000 points ago. What happened if I have to destroy it?

I thought the system was kor azhor but maybe not. Maybe it was the area kor azhor.

Maybe I can wait for this battleships owner to awaken. The station says they are offline at the moment. Until then at least it is a pretty and whole new world. All I can do is look on as these termenters go about their unsavoury business.

If you have not kept your clone up to date, you will loose a percentage of your highest skillpoint skill. For instance, if you have a 1.2 million skill, you will loose at maximum 5% of that skill (or, if it's smaller, 5% of your total SP).

Don't quote me on the exact numbers though, because I'm not 100% sure on them. Either way, it's a cheap price to pay in order to get home again.

Klezmer your situation does indeed sound unfortunate. If you can hold on until 2200 eve time I will rescue you? You don't need to lose skillpoints, and well, lets just say I'm interested in exploring that system you are in.

Be careful about trusting strangers by the way, like you say there are pirates everywhere. I would recommend you do not get assistance from any other players except me. If I find your wormhole system I will even pay you before I rescue you. That way you know you can trust me.

I hope to be seeing you later o/

You will lose 5-10% of the difference of the clone and your skill level, so in this case 20-40k SP (under a days worth) from your highest skill.

O_o

Let me get this right...

You entered some unspecified J space through an X877 (class 4) wormhole, from somewhere in Kor-Azor, but not Kor Azor system itself. The wormhole may still be up and there is a Navy Dominix at an offlined POS.

Interesting...

That's nothin. Had a fellow explorer run into an abandoned POS, hangars, faction tower, and pilotless Orca and Sleipnir.

If you dont make it back to empire in time, you could always buy 60 days from a secure GTC transaction. See GTC forum for details. (Cost me 580m from my wormhole)

This made me laugh out loud for real. And there where tears. Never mind, at least you are out there trying stuff, playing with the sand. Some people don't even undock...like ever.
