Exploring the galaxy

Last year I started an exciting journey around New Eden, with the intention of documenting every system I went through (excluding wormhole systems). I managed to get through almost 100 systems across 2 regions before 'real life' got in the way and took me away from the adventure for a while.

But I'm back now, refreshed and ready to continue.

The journey is being documented here:

The Travels of Black Claw - Around New Eden

I've been cleaning a few things up, restoring my Twitter account and getting back into that, and basically returning to how things used to be.

Regional History

One of the interesting things I'm doing as I travel the galaxy is documenting the history and special events of each region I'm passing through. So far I've completed only one region, but the historical information I've gathered was quite fascinating:

Regional History: Curse

I'll be continuing this as I proceed through each of the regions of New Eden.

Say hello!

As before, I'll be linking each new post in here, allowing you all to follow the adventures. If you see me in local, say hi. It would be nice to meet some of you along the way, if we're in the neighbourhood together.

The updates on my blog will be able to tell you of my progress and where I'm at, but I'm very cautious. If there's lots of people around, or my 'spider sense' is tingling, I'll just hang out in a system for a while, cloaked, until things seem to return to normal, or it's just after downtime and no one's around. There will be plenty of ways I'll be doing my best to avoid ambushes as I continue around the galaxy..

I used to have a -10 security status. As I travel, I'll be trying to get that down to 0, so I can easily include the highsec regions in my travels.

It's going to be fun. I hope you join me.

Does anyone know of any other players out there who are travelling the galaxy and document it in a blog or podcast or video?

As far as the history stuff goes, Poetic Stan is creating an eve history wiki that you may be interested in. http://poeticstanziel.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-history-of-new-eden-wiki.html

@Veronika - I think that was Innominate Nightmare, a long time ago. Yes, he was an inspiration for me to follow in his footsteps, although I don't think he completed his journey.

@Hoarr - yep, I'm aware of Eve Travel, already linked from my blog as a fellow traveller. Thanks for the tip about Poetic Stan. I've contacted him now and asked if he wants to work together on the history project.

Do you think it's possible to travel the entire galaxy, through every system, without dying once?

Is it possible?

Why are the red, fiery planets the most photogenic?

Why do you think it's doubtful?

Yes, it is possible. Just unlikely, I would say.

Good luck.

I have always wanted to do this myself. Would be a lot of fun I think. Meeting interesting people, getting killed by those same people and seeing the sights of eve.Big smile
