Lots of nightmares and bad sleep recently (side effects), resulting in a series of small seizures today.

Another case of D’Oh

I think I mentioned it before: The anti-seizure medication I have to take comes with a number of rather annoying side effects. Among them: Nightmares. A particularly bad one woke me up in the middle of the night and falling asleep again was impossible for a while. So, gaming it was.

After having spent a lot of time annoying the Sanshas I decided to leave them alone for now. My next goal is the northwest, where the Serpentis Corporation runs their shady business operations. Remembering my previous mistake I made sure this time to actually tank for the Serpentis damage profile: Kinetic and Thermal.

Within a few jumps I scanned down “Serpentis Narcotics Warehouses“, a 3/10 DED site and perfect to test out my new fit. Everything worked out well and even the loot fairy was on my site. A drop of roughly 90mil of loot made me a happy explorer. A few jumps later I found a “Serpentis Corporation Hydroponics Site“; eager to collect more loot and confident that I could take the damage easily, I took the gate.

It wasn’t until I reached the last pocked when I realized my mistake. Out of habit I had added an active tank, which is alright when you fly with your wormhole hunter but less than optimal when you do combat exploration. Willow always compensated for that with a cap booster, but that one has been replaced with a relic analyzer. And while I did tank quite nicely I knew that my time was very limited since my cap ran out fast. Of course I had to warp just when I had the boss in structure, leaving my drones behind.

Now I am sitting in station, annoyed about my mistake. My market alt has bought all the modules I need to fix the current fit and I am waiting for the hauler to drop it off. Better luck next time. I think I can go sleep again.
