Today, however, I'm going to jump forward in time to the present and confirm that I posted my application to the Tuskers the same day I posted my solo Drake kill. My application was accepted, and I joined the Tuskers that weekend. I immediately packed my bags and went back to Molden Heath, where the Tuskers are currently campaigning. That night I scored my first solo kill as a Tusker and also worked as part of a small fleet for the first time (apparently, my Punisher makes decent bait).
What this means, though is that while I will go back to my usual Monday/Wednesday/Friday posting schedule, the next few fights will have happened before I joined the Tuskers. I hope that doesn't confuse anyone.
Equally, I'm going to be making a concerted effort to actually ransom ships where I can now (I don't need the kills any more), and you might actually see my try for some pods - I finally trained up a hauling alt to do my shopping, so my sec status can fall as far as it likes.
Finally, in accordance with the Tusker code, I no longer feel I can accept the 1v1 requests I have been getting through the post. However, I hate avoiding good fights, so if you convo me in game I'm always happy to let you know where I'm currently roaming. If you head my way in a T1 frigate or cruiser, you stand a good chance of getting your fight.
Until then, good hunting.
