Wolta and myself were standing in Twin Peaks when I noticed someone requesting a warp transport. After a brief conversation it was established that there would be 2 passengers. I asked them to make a team with myself and the other person in it. Then I headed into the big black whilst informing Wolta of the situation.
Once aboard I added my team mates to the guest list and asked them and Wolta to let me know when they were ready and as soon as I had 3 green lights I initiated the summons. We quickly established that neither of our passengers were carrying and manoeuvred away from Calypso Space Station initiating warp as soon as possible.
We exited from warp immediately below Arkadia Space Station and docked within a few seconds.
Both passengers tried to pay me the agreed sum (the standard 23 PED) but I only accepted it from the first and explained to the second.
I think this was one of the fastest and smoothest transports we have done and am pleased with how we have improved over the past year.
Wolta and I headed to Arkadia in my quad and as Arkadia entry is over dry land we both arrived dead :).
An existing client had a friend trapped on Zeus Space Station and we were needed to recover them. The client was not able to accompany us so I requested their friend’s name and added them to my FL whilst I was on my way into the big black. Once aboard I summoned Wolta and we headed out to Zeus.
The pick-up went smoothly, our new client was summoned and we headed straight back to Calypso. Our client took the TP though a quad transport was offered. Wolta took us back to the surface in her quad.
This has given me an idea, I shall need to cogitate for a while.
Three of us this week, Wolta, Nocturaline and myself. I was aboard early to make preparations and summoned the ladies at the appropriate time.
Wolta took us to the Calypso training grounds and began to take damage, she mentioned that she was getting very few skill gains. We continued for about 50 minutes before a series of unfortunate events occurred, firstly I fell asleep, secondly Wolta crashed to desktop and thirdly Nocturaline did not change repair station quick enough. The upshot of which was the ship going bang. I had to work it out afterwards as the first I knew I was at Crystal Palace TP.
We set out again, this time with Nocturaline at the helm, she also mentioned a lack of skill gains, fortunately we managed to survive this time although I was still dozing off here and there. After about 75 minutes I took the helm and guess what, I got almost no skill gains either, it appears something is afoot! I was only active for about 20 minutes before we decided to quit, Wolta was in danger of passing out so logged, we allowed the ship to be destroyed and repaired it at Crystal Palace and on route to Calypso Space Station. Nocturaline then transported the two us to the surface.
A strange night! To top it off the washing machine developed a fault and the washing is sodden, I’ll look at it tomorrow, maybe!
