I'm so poor I need to do missions. Well, truth be told - I need a sec rise as well to get the Cane my benefactor built for me. He can't fly the thing, and I'll blow up spectacularly on my way back. Once I have it though - I can start killing stuff again :)
But missions are so boring - although I'm up to level 2 mishes at least, so getting slight increase in income. Which is good.
The war ended - so I only need worrying about rats and sentry guns now. I had to stop doing the Epic Arc for the time being is a relocation took me through two 1.0 systems and umpteen 0.9 ones. Heh, I could go through there with a shuttle, but actually doing the mission in one, would be a bit too suicidal even for me. So I turned to a lowly common agent for whom I've been doing things the last few days. Now on to greener pastures, once I get to level 3 my sec status should have been raised enough to actually use the Cane as a mission ship.
