The Sooth Sayer (Expedition) expedition is an escalation of the Gurista Hideout combat site found by Probing for exploration sites. This expedition consists of four locations in different systems in high sec.

The expedition begins with the destruction of the Experimental Weapon Tower in a Gurista Hideout, with this message:

"While fighting the last defenders of this hideout, you noticed three of their ships warp out and disappear from radar. Your navigational computer has had a few minutes now to mull over the data they left and has come up with a probable destination in case you want to chase them."

or possibly:

"Gurista commander destroyed. Determining probable origin point...found. Updating your journal with the location."


Location 1 (High sec)

Room 1 (no gate)

Defenders
3-4 x (Frigate) Pithi Demolisher/Destructor/Plunderer/Wrecker

The ships are at 200+km and will warp out as soon as you enter the 2nd Pocket. At this point you either receive a message with the location of the follow up or the expedition ends.

Structures

Escalation Message (Success):

"Your sensors pick up the Guristas trail and provide you with a set of coordinates to their next probable destination."

or perhaps:

"It seems like the weird sound once in a while coming from your left dashboard is not from the navigation computer after all, at least it seems to have calculated the whereabouts of these Gurista frigates pretty accurately. Not accurately enough though, as they warp out as soon as you enter space. Luckily your instruments manage to come up with a best approximation for their next destination."

Escalation Message (Failure):

"The guesswork your instruments did, seem to have been wilder than reality can cope with at the moment, the Gurista ships are nowhere to be seen."
