Warp, Arkadia to Crystal Palace

An existing client contacted me requesting transport from Arkadia to Crystal Palace, I was already on Arkadia and just wrapping up a hunt.  It did not take long for me to store the loot and head into the big black, I have been using “The Bad Mood Rising” for this lately, it’s nicer to fly than the quad and the journey up is safe.

I arrived at Arkadia Space Station in very close proximity to the Pathfinder and was soon aboard where, after checking my client was ready summoned them.

They sat at a gun for the flight, a misfire causing us to not initiate warp on the first attempt. The exit from warp was close to Crystal Palace and I parked in one of the domes. After which the  client requested an opportunity to pilot in the environs of the Crystal Palace Safe Zone, a request which was of course granted.

Later payment was received and the client departed for Crystal Palace.

Space Skilling Saturday 54 (Cosmic Horrors on the brink of extinction)

Location:- Arkadian Space.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Phil and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads wetdreams in space

We started in time, I asked who wanted to pilot first and both Nocturaline and Wolta raced to engineering, looks like it’s me first.

I had problems finding mobs and only used the guns on 2 occasions, once about halfway through and once at the end of my session, I had one decent loot with the rest being poor. Consequently skill gains were low.

Wolta took the helm after me, there was not the normal amount of repair to do so I guess Wolta also struggled to find Cosmic Horrors. Wolta did report seeing Kronan, maybe they hoovered up many mobs. I was called to the turrets twice, I tried top left and bottom left, neither brought much luck.

Next up was Nocturaline, she inherited some Horrors from Wolta so had a bit of a head start, damage was slow in coming though, I was using my RK-5 for the first 10 minutes. Shortly after I was called to the guns and chose bottom right, the bottom guns are the most difficult for the pilot to adjust to so they are good practice, loot was poor and the gun seemed to be targeting off centre which was odd. Nocturaline also had issues finding Cosmic Horrors, I was called to the turrets twice more choosing top right and top rear.

Over all a bit of a disappointment, low skill gains and poor loot. I wonder if Cosmic horrors are on the endangered list yet.

Warp, Arkadia to Crystal Palace.

At login I did not head to the surface of Arkadia as I had some offline messages from and old friend requiring a warp transport from Arkadia to Calypso and she was online although not responding to PMs. I waited and my patience was rewarded. I let the Sleepyheads know of the impending transport and that I would be OK doing this alone as it could be done with the client logged off.

On summons Wolta did respond and headed to Engineering. I explained to the client that she could stay logged in and just log out if we ran into trouble.

I took the helm and headed straight for Arkadia, 2 red triangles were sighted but I ignored them and they ignored me. Warp was initiated after a count of 10 from entering PVP and we arrived close to Crystal Palace, the Sub-warp time taking about 15 seconds. I showed our client to the TP and subsequent TPs to get to Calypso. Then returned to the ship.

Having only about an hour left online before I needed to go Wolta kindly offered to take the ship back to Arkadia at Sub-warp. The first part of which I sat in a turret. I logged out as we approached Zeus Space Station. When I logged in again we were safely at Arkadia Space Station. Later I spoke with Wolta who told me the journey was without incident.
