So... there I am last night, exploring in lowsec, and have just found a juicy system. Three data sites and one relic!
I receive a convo request. Of course I accept it -- I never don't want to talk. Curiosity always gets the better of me: who is this guy? What's he want with me? How did I get his attention?
I say hi and he states his reason: he has seen my system-for-sale ad at wormholesales.com. Oh! Well, this is great! I've been wanting to sell a wormhole forever. It looks like I have finally succeeded. We negotiate price a bit: he talks me down to 320m, under my condition that we do it soon. In fact, it turns out he wants to do it now. Tonight. I have another 1.5 hours before bed -- so I agree.
I log my babysitter alt, who is sitting at a safespot in the system in question. I start scanning down sigs looking for the N346 static to nullsec. He gets a Taggart representative into our conversation. One of them comes in, and starts briefing us on how it will go. I finish scanning down a wormhole with my alt -- probably the static -- and I prepare to exit. But first I want to make sure I don't see any ships or probes (other than mine) on dscan. I dscan.
Oh, crap. There's a force field. DAMMIT! Someone has occupied "my" wspace system in the few days since I found it. Well, I cannot sell it like that. Failure.
I tell my would-be buyer and Taggart rep, and apologize for wasting their time. Then I fly to the wormhole anyway, since there is no point in my babysitter alt being in here any more. Sigh. It is ~40 jumps to Jita from here.
I think about trying to scan my way back up into wspace to get out more safely. But while I am sure I would eventually find a way, how long it might take is unknown. Another way out would be to abandon my cheap Heron and kill myself. But I am rather curious to see if I can make it out through nullsec. I've a cloak, and not much else. Almost no skills; this alt took a week to train. Not even a prop mod.
I start the trek.
