Chapter 2: Blackness Rising


Penumbra4p1 Chapter 1


Mission 8 - Meet Sinas


Report to Sinas Egassuo's Chimera in Astoh


Mission 9 - Right Tool for the Job


Faction: Gallente Navy
Mission type: Encounter
Space type: Normal space
Damage dealt: Therm/Kin
Web/Scramble: Web / Scram
Extras: Sensor Dampening
Recommended damage dealing: Therm (best), Kin (secondary)
Data Analyzer and Hacking skill required to complete mission (check Tip #2)

Single Pocket (2 Groups)


Broadcast Tower Group (44km)
(Mixed Fleet with 3 time based reinforcement spawns every 2 minutes) Complete Fleet after spawns :
8x Frigate (Federation Praktor Belos, Praktor Harpago)
7x Elite Frigate (Elite Federation Machina, Pelekus, Phalarica, Arcus)
5x Destroyer (Federation Arcus, Pelekus)
10x Cruiser (Federation Praktor Centurion, Praktor Legionarius)
9x Elite Cruiser (Elite Federation Arx, Auxilia, Liburna, Calo, Quadrieris)
5x Battlecruiser (Federation Praktor Bearcus, Federation Calo)
13x Battleship (Federation Covinus, Federation Praktor Phanix, Praktor Praeses, Praktor Polemo, Praktor Hexeris, Praktor Magister)
Tip : Time based spawns happen quickly. All ships will drop Gallente Navy Tags but be forewarned, negative standing hits incured for Aggro / Ship Kill. Expect EWAR from Elite Frigates and Elite Cruisers. Probably a good idea to get help from friends before attacking this group :)

Federation Navy Shipyard Group (63km)
1x Elite Frigate (Elite Federation Manica) Warp Scram
2x Elite Frigate (Elite Federation Matara) Sensor Dampening
5x Elite Destroyer (Elite Federation Arcus)
Blitz = Warp in to 100km range, ignore Broadcast Tower Group and maneuver ship into range to destroy Federation Navy Shipyard Group. Container can not be Hacked with defenders present, so you need to kill this group before collecting the FOF FedNav Identifier Tag (mission item) to complete the mission.
Tip #2 : You can use a T3 with a Mobile Depot and refit for a Emergent Locus Analyzer subsystem + data analyzer I/II on site so you don't have to re-ship.
Lvl 5 on the Electronics subsystem skill of chosen will give you good hacking HP/damage to beat the mini-game.
Tip #3 : Hacking minigame is on large field with many firewalls 50/20. Final core is 70/20



Mission 10 - The Breakout


Faction: Gallente Navy
Space type: Deadspace
Damage dealt: Therm/Kin
Web/Scramble: N/A
Recommended damage dealing: Therm (best), Kin (secondary)
Items Needed: Probe Launcher & Core Probes (Scanning), Data Analyzer (Hacking), FOF FedNav Identifier Tag (Gained from Agent). <Items not needed if you buy the mission item off the market/contracts>

Note - Mission site (Federation Detention Facility) is a Cosmic Signature (Combat Site) which must be probed to 100% first before warping to it. The site will spawn in each system within the Constellation when mission is accepted and will respawn if someone else completes it.

Blitz : Buy the Caldari Navy prisioner on Contracts or market and complete the mission. No need to search/probe, hack, or fight anything.

Mission Site = Two Pockets

First Pocket

1x Newly Constructed Acceleration Gate (95km)

No NPC's most of the time

Sometimes it ends up with:
Group 1:
6x Frigate (Federation Praktor Phalarica/Machina/Harpgo)
2x Destroyer (Federation Belos)
3x Elite Frigate (Elite Federation Lochos/Libertus)Scram

Group 2:
6x Elite Frigates (Elite Federation Phalarica/Machina)
3x Elite Cruiser (Elite Fedeartion Arx)damping

Group 3:
7x Battleships (Federation Praktor Magister/Navis Praetoria/Polemo/Hexeris)Navis damps
In the case of these spawns, a cloaky is best used to just fly past them to the gate. The tag does not prevent them from attacking.


Second Pocket


Initial Group (25km)
8x Gallente Warden Frigate (Federation Clavis, Hastile)

Structures (Hack with Data Analyzer) :
8x Federation Dention Facility - each contains 1x Caldari Prisoner Of War (Mission Objective)

Note - The Gallente Warden Frigates will not attack if the FOF FedNav Identifier Tag (Gained from Agent) is in your cargohold (There is a bug where they will still shoot you but they hit for 1 damage). After successfully hacking a Detention Facility to save a prisoner, a short self-destruct timer will start. You may be able to hack another one before the Detention Facility self-destructs but only 1x Caldari Prisoner Of War is needed to complete the mission.

The Detention Facility structures will have a white container to Hack. If no Detention Facility structures are present or you see 8x blue containers, then that site has been completed by another player. Instead of waiting for respawn, just look for the site in another system.


Mission 11 - Whisper of a Conspiracy


Sinas sends you to a low sec system in Black Rise where he wants you to check out an Ishkone facility and see if they are exchanging prisoners of war with the Gallente.

Route can be either entirely high sec or go into low-sec so be careful. Warp to the mish site. Sinas says to check out the telescope. Once you reach about 10km from it, Sinas hacks it for you and you can open it to get the mish item, an Encrypted Data Node.
Tip: Same drill as before. Nano Interceptor/fast frigate/cloaky frigate and beware of gate camps.


Mission 12 - Practical Solutions


Mission Type: Courier

Pick up Vira Mikano from an Ishkone Watch station and bring him back to Sinas so he can decrypt the Encrypted Data Node.


Mission 13 - Forewarning


Mission Type: Courier to Deadspace Location (possibly into Low Sec)
Recommended Ship: Very fast frigate or covert ops

Mission ends when you make the drop into the Conference Center.
