Things are heating up across the New Eden cluster, and everyone is feeling it.

This turn of events has made a lot of folks very nervous, for good reason. The sovereign leader of the most powerful entity in the cluster, headshotted before her escort fleet could take any action. This doesn’t bode well, and I am taking action to secure those I care the most about.
Kathyayini and the kids are living in BC with me now – most of the pilots in Supreme Mathematics have done the same for their families. Ironic that the safest place to be right now seems to be in a wormhole system.
Some group we angered recently has put out a contract to evict us from our system.

As for myself, I have begun recording music again. It’s nice to have an outlet. I’m a bit rusty after years of not picking up an instrument, but it’s going well enough.
