Tonight, we took a small gang of T1 cruisers dozens of jumps through normally busy areas of lowsec to try and find some fun. Instead, 00sage00, Inka, IEATCRAYONS and myself only managed to find one ship to engage the entire way... a three-week old player in a Thrasher. I tried my best to ransom but it has been a while...

...at which point his destroyer was... destroyed. Perhaps he would be interested in paying a ransom for his pod instead?
