Falcon, falcon, falcon everywhere and what's in that rookie ships loot???

A roam into Molden Heath proved to be quite interesting; we quickly killed a maestrom at a gate and later on, Viper Sam spotted a raven in Atlar racing towards the Illamur gate. We had a fleet of five hurricanes and one myrmidon with us and we were told to wait. There was gate fire and the raven pilot came through. He dropped the gate cloak but was about 24-25km from me. I locked but he then disappeared.

We checked out scanners but he had not warped out so he had a cloak. Estimating his last known position we hit our micro warpdrives and raced towards it,in an effort to get to within 2000m of his cloaked ship and then forcing a decloak.

Meanwhile Viper Sam had come through and he moved ahead in a straight line and as luck would have it. He disturbed the cloaking device and the raven decloaked in front of us. Glorious.

We tackled and then killed the raven.

As we pushed towards Bosena, we encounted pilots from Nocturnal Legion alliance. They were initially docked up and our attempts to draw them out proved to be fruitless. We couldn't kill them quickly enough before they docked up.

However, things got worse as a we finally managed to get one of their megathrons to engage , rapidly followed by an astarte and a sleipnir. The latter came in from Sotrenzur and was chasing Salicylate in his phobos for a while. Our ace was the falcon.

Their ace was also their falcon and the nano'ed sleipnir. We failed to spot their falcon quick enough before he joined us. Their sleipnir tackled our falcon and killed it while we vainly chased after the enemy's own ECM ship. WIth our falcon gone, the fight swung against us and we pulled out. Losing Krypt's hurricane in the process. As we gang warped and landed at a belt, we were greeted by a plethora of white squares: frigates and cruisers. All appeared to be on an op and it was Kane who was smart enough to lock and kill a thorax in a couple of volleys. The rest all scattered.

We were beaten tonight but we will be back.

This morning, Jubes, Grun and I started to pop the farmers in Ingunn once more and we really should check the wrecks. Have a look at this killmail....
