Hadn’t played in several weeks (was playing Stellaris). I’d been in Yan Musu in my Cobra Mk IV, mining. Found four data delivery missions going to the same station in a neighboring system. One of them was for the local anarchic faction, but, well it’s just a message.
Waiting for my Imperial Courier to arrive, I made a quick run to the local RES. Gathered up 14t Gold, 15t Palladium, and 5t Painite. During this, pirates attempted to rob me two or three times. Each time ended poorly for the pirates, as system security pounced on each while they were waiting for me to comply. Once they’d engaged, I joined in with beam turrets and seekers. They had no chance, even a Python. So I collected some bounty too.
Figured my Courier must have arrived, so I headed back to the station. Painite was selling for over 80,000 credits per ton, wow! Profits plus bounty was around a million Cr.
Hopped into the Courier, quick jump to Ariku, delivered the data without incident. Reward from the Anarchy job: two Exquisite Focus Crystals.
All in all, it was a pleasant welcome back.
