I hope you lot are able to settle into the RPS Community channel. The channel has quite a bit more lively than it used to be so I'm sure you can poke your head in and find some people to do missions/rat with as long as you ask.
And don't hesitate to ask questions! The RPS Community channel is frequented by many a bittervet that has been in RPS over the years, and some other fellas loosely associated with the corp. So there's a great wealth of knowledge there if you just poke your head in and ask.
Hang around and in no time you'll be flying with New Eden's most spectacular band of superheroes!
