My name is Gallen'Varr. I am the Owner and Director of Varr-Core Mining Co.
I have a very good friend, Tom Chevron, who operates under the handle 'Scrinsons'. Tom is essentially an explorer. He likes nothing more than heading out into the black and seeing what's out there.
Of course, people back in civilisation, such as those that own and operate mining companies can pay a small fortune for stellar information that could led them to the next big pay-out!
Tom has recently returned from a journey that took him six thousand light years out. He made many new discoveries and more to the point saw many wondrous things.
It seems he doesn't get on with life back home so well. So the upshot is that he has decided to journey into the black once again. He knows that I have dabbled in the exploring game myself, but nowhere near the extent to which he has. Still, he has invited me to join him on an epic journey.
He, or rather we, as I have agreed to his proposal, are travelling to the centre of the galaxy to see first hand the awesome sight that is the supermassive black hole at Sagittarius A
I am both nervous, and excited by the prospect.
We are looking at breaking the journey into 1000ly pieces, setting a specific waypoint to meet up at. We will then take an arcing route from waypoint to waypoint (so that we don't end up discovering the same things!), with the intention of meeting at the waypoints and travelling together for a bit before splitting up and heading for the next.
I will be broadcasting the highlights of my journey each time we reach a waypoint, and I am sure that Tom will be sending some of his own.
For ease I am going to list our Waypoints here:
- WP1: SWOILZ OU-M D8-30
WP2: AUCOKS ZV-T D4-10
WP3: DROJAEA XL-Q B11-3
WP4: NGC 6188 SECTOR KX-T B3-6
WP5: THAILAE LV-N C23-5
WP6: SYRALIA XD-K D8-0
WP7: LYSOONTS MS-U D2-152
I hope you enjoy our journey.
