Smack Bites Back

I was stumbling around the station bar... giving people mean stares and talking trash with the walls. Suddenly, my beeper buzzed:

"I've got two caracals and a blackbird here!"

Followed by:

"They're smacking me for running away in my rifter lol:
[02:57:48] Rayf Iosolar > I want his bounty"

I immediately ran for my hanger, screaming at my manager to fire up my thorax. When I got there, it was still firing up so I made some death threats and pulled TallyRaya out of her regenerative therapy a wee bit too early. By the time we were settled into the cockpit, the ship was ready, and I flew the ship into the void of space.

When I got there, we began the hunt.

My ship dropped out of warp, Bfoster was already engaging in his rifter (a nanoed one at that too) The black bird was only 9km away from me, obviously this guy wasn't really all that experienced in pvp. Bfoster announced he had two points on the black bird; so I added another point instead of disrupting the caracal X_X. At any rate, we anihilated the bb before it could jamn any of us.

Bfoster even got his pod. It was just perfect.

A short while later, we engaged a cormorant and the other caracal in a different belt.
Anihilating them.

God, I love piracy.

Another first Yarr!

I finally decided to have a go at piracy, more for fun than profit for the first go.
I arrive in a decently populated low sec system in my typical blasterax (gotta love it) and immediatly check local-- a few promising targets :-)
After warping into a planet with several roid belts around it, I scan and BINGO I see xxxx's rifter on scan! Now I spend several minutes going through belt after belt until I finally stumble upon my victim's belt, but he's over 50 km away-- I'll never be able to get to him in time... but then I noticed that he must've been ratting, cause he's heading for a wreck equally far away. I bookmark the wreck warp to the nearest planet, warp back and arm my warp scrambler. I exit warp, YES hes still heading for the can, and is well withing range, I immediatly start the lock, panickly close the 'do you want to grief today' dialog and watch as the seconds tick by.... tick tick... scram!!! Then I just put on my web and let my pets out to play, after a few secs, I am treated to a nice explosion, but his pod gets away...

Well, this certainly wasn't a fair fight, a cruiser vs a rifter, but the real work was in finding my first victim =D. I picked up a few thousand loot and am now typing this up as I wait for my first GCC to tick off.
