So the adventure begins!
The first jump on the way to Coalsack Nebula. I did not catalog every system I visited, and will not do so. But some I will highlight on my trip. Since you cannot plot a route that far ahead, something it seems they are expanding in a future patch, my first plotted stop would be Khronos. Mostly because it's the farthest system I can plot to, but also because of the name. I like it.
While not needing to scoop fuel just yet, I still do in a few systems on the way. It takes some time, and can be quite dangerous, so I'll mostly refuel at stations along the way, and use the scoop as a backup.
First stop, and nothing has really happened so far. Mostly just flying from system to system. I am still in trafficked space, as evident from the traffic report at Evans Hub.
I refuel, and also sell whatever I can from the data I have collected on the way. As far as I know the price is set, and won't rise the further I get. I might be wrong about that though.
I also decide to check the bulletin board. Might be some fun missions to do while I am here.
That doesn't seem that bad. No fine for failing or abandoning it, and I was going to see if I could get some bounties anyway. Sure, I'll kill some pirates!
And what do you know! I find Ian Cotter, idiot wanted what I had in my cargo hold. Which is quite empty, and more or less not there. After a short, but one sided fight, he manages to flee. I really need to do something about that. I can't even follow the FSD wake yet.
I try to find more pirates, but fifteen minutes of searching only yields battles long finished, wrecks and cargo slowly spinning through space. I decide to push on.
Finally some action, as I am pulled out of supercruise heading for my next stop. Sadly, I have no pictures of it, as it happened a bit too fast. The scoundrel in question was called Captain Sparrow. Yes, I kid you not. It was a long and difficult fight, only helped by the authorities. But while fighting, one of them flew between me and my target. Only for a split second, but long enough to be hit by one of my lasers. This resulted in a bounty on my head of a whooping 100 credits. It also meant I had to escape as soon as Sparrow was space dust, as missiles was flying after me.
But I got to Edgeworth in one piece, where I quickly settled the bounty, while delivering the bounty for Captain Sparrow worth about 34.000 credits. Here it is time to take a break, before I resume my journey tomorrow.
