Hi, I’m Black Claw, and I started my experience in New Eden back in 2006. After many years learning how to survive lowsec and nullsec combat, I ended up creating a corp called Open University of Celestial Hardship (0UCH for short) and the Art of  War Alliance to teach others how to fight and survive too.

Then I got bitten by the travel bug and I wanted to see the galaxy. I spent a few years travelling around New Eden, documenting my travels and experiences along the way.

I decided to create a corp specifically for my travels, and to have members that were interested in travelling and exploring New Eden too. I called it Touring New Eden, and this became its blog.

But in 2015 I got distracted and left the game, returning briefly in June 2021. I sold all my historical combat ships and equipment and other random rubbish, and bought a luxury yacht and fit it for travel.

But then I got distracted again and didn’t log in again until October 2023, which is when I’m updating this page!

To keep myself interested, I decided to get back into PVP again. I left Touring New Eden and returned to my old PVP corp, Scorpion’s Sting. Maybe it’ll keep me playing for a while? I don’t know. We’ll just have to see, won’t we.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy your stay here.
