I was exploring Great Wildlands and creating bookmarks in my trusty Proteus. It was unusually bad day for me because from countless systems I managed to find only wormholes. When yet another wormhole showed up on my scanners I frowned and opened my fourth beer can to drown my frustration. Then it clicked, I am not sure was it alcohol or just sheer curiosity but I decided to check that wormhole out. I checked my wallet and made sure that I could afford secound Proteus and that I could... just barely.
First thing I noticed after entering though wormhole was that my ships repair ammount was lowered but it didnt worried me since I wasnt planning to engage in combat. After admiring beautiful scene I cloaked up and started to warp around creating safe spots and reading web about system I was in. C5 and nothing on my D-scan. I explored everything I could and found nothing but old customs offices. I wondered if owner of POCO's was still around and checked corporation kill boards and perhaps activity of their members but shortly found out that last time anyone did anything in that corporation was two years ago. According to killboard, they had some major fights and seemd to lost. RPer in my kicked in, perhaps because fourth beer was taking in effect and fifth was getting opened, I started to wonder the story behind that corp and its members. Its glory days of settling wormholes and eventually being brushed away by others.
Since I was already in wormhole, I decided to continue and scanned down another wormhole entrance. This time it was dark and gloomy. It seems I arrived to C5 Magnetar wormhole and my D-scan showed that it was thriving with life and man made structures. One of wormhole residents greeted me and curiouslly asked of my reasons to be in the system. I did not wanted to look like newbie and wave hand just to get it shot off, instead I pretended to be wormhole shark, old timer who roams in Proteus and slay its unsuspected victims. So I did not say anything. I warped around creating bookmarks and secretly stalking its residents for good time and discovered POS with Moros in it. What a sight! It was first time I ever seen Moros in space. Despite flying in null all the time, I never gave thought to see dreadnought. My imagination kicked in and I saw myself cruising in space in Moros, smoking cigar while adjusting my aviator shades and making eveyone jelous. Then someone tackling me and swarm of lesser ships buzzing around me, slowly eating up my armor... I warped to my safe spot and scanned down another wormhole.
Overall, I spent four weeks in wormholes. I didnt do any combat since my ship was exploration fit but had great time learning about wormholes and meeting its residents and important of all... I survived.
