I headed away from Crystal Palace, solo, in the direction of Arkadia before rotating z+ and changing heading to Toulan. It is a long journey and I was unsure if I would complete it in one stage.
Not long out from Crystal Palace I encountered a Skyflail and decided to manoeuvre to encounter it, after taking a little damage I turned to destroy it, these used to be quite difficult to hit due to a bug of some kind but killing this one was significantly easier. On finishing it off I received a message telling me the ship had gained the title reputable.
I headed on toward Toulan, already feeling tired. The rest of journey passed without any incident that I am aware of, I did manage to doze off more than once so it is quite possible that something minor did occur, I just failed to notice.
For Wolta’s Birthday Hunt we needed to get to Calypso, with a quick stop at Crystal Palace, so with Wolta at the helm we headed away from Arkadia Space Station, entered warp and emerged close to Crystal Palace. Wolta took us in and we docked without incident.
One quick visit later we headed toward Calypso Space Station and were attacked by a quad, I was in a gun at the time but the quad was not within my arc of fire, I switched to a gun that would be able to hit the miscreant but the time taken to leave one gun and enter another meant he was out of range by the time I could get him in my sights. No mater the ships SI while not huge was enough to deter him.
We had a brief discussion as clearly we would be attacked on route to the surface the outcome of which was that we should return to Crystal Palace to take on the Kreltin instead of the intended Feffox.
Location:- Arkadian Space.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Captain Spike and Myself.
We started on time with Wolta taking us to the training grounds and piloting for the first hour. Captain Spike was in command in Engineering with me doing the grunt work and occasionally manning the guns to dispose of Cosmic Horrors. I was kept busy, you have to concentrate much one when you are the only repairer, writing this log distracted me a little too much more than once.
As there was only 2 of us active we took a break of about 30 minutes after Wolta’s stint at the helm for dinner and beer replenishment.
As I headed out I encountered Kronan which was skilling with many Cosmic Horrors in tow, I feared I may not find many to take damage from. I need not have worried but it did take a little time before I got a decent number of Horrors. Skills were quite good and the loot was not appalling. I was struggling to stay awake almost the entire time and am fairly sure I slept for a few seconds here and there.
Entertainment was provided for Wolta by Serge Gainsbourg and for me by the usual assortment of podcasts, I’m always trying to catch up with these, as well as listening to several links Wolta sent me.
