Space Skilling Saturday 37 (Hunting at Calypso)

Location:- Calypso.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Phil & Myself.

We started a few minutes late, I asked who would like to pilot first and as no one responded I did it myself. The journey out takes nearly 15 minutes which is a bit of a drag. Once in the zone I tested to see if I could leave the seat and to my surprise I could, not needing a re-log I started collecting Cosmic Horrors and worked on getting them into as tight a group as possible whilst taking damage so that the rest of the Sleepyheads had something to do. After about 25 minutes I was getting almost no skills from them so I pulled up along side jumped into the lower starboard turret then killed and looted the lot. It was like a drive by shooting without the drive by. I collected more mobs and then did it all again after which my hour was up so I handed over to Wolta.

Initially damage was quite small, I had the same problem, the mobs were quite thinly spaced and getting heavy damage only happens once there are a few mobs in a small area.  Once a few mobs had been gathered the amount of damage requiring repair was significantly increased. Wolta cut her session a little short at about 50 minutes probably not taking into account the 15 minute offset caused by the travel time to get to the zone in the first place.

Nocturaline was next to the helm, I headed to the front turret where the mobs were all killed. After about 30 minutes we killed some more and 20 minutes later a few more were totalled and a few more a little after that. By then it was 2105 so Nocturaline found a couple of mobs and we stopped repairing allowing the ship to blow.

Back at Crystal Palace we repaired the ship before going our separate ways.

Tonight’s entertainment was provide by, for me Mike & Mike, Inside the Huddle and Eye on College Football, I was about 4 days behind. For Wolta it was Patti Smith and for Nocturaline it was Hittar Cuesta.

Pick-up and a return transport.

A previous client contacted me while I was hunting on Monria with Wolta and Nocturaline. A warp return journey Arkadia – Calypso – Arkadia was required later in the day. I explained the pricing including a discount for a regular client, no easy task considering I was hunting, I also informed them of my availability.

On re-log later in the day, the job was go. I headed to the ship and informed Wolta and Nocturaline who joined me shortly. We headed away from Monria and initiated Warp, arriving almost immediately z+ of Arkadia Space Station consequently docking manoeuvres were minimal. I informed our client that the ship was at there disposal and after a short wait a summons request was made and executed.

Logged off transport was required so the site address was given and once the client had left EU, we headed away from Arkadia Space Station and engaged warp arriving above Calypso Space Station with the same degree of accuracy as previous, providing a swift transport, Twitter was updated, our client reconnected and headed to the surface while we waited in readiness.

About 50 minutes later the summons request was received and once our client was aboard and logged off we returned to Arkadia, once again arriving very close to the Space Station, with Twitter updated and re-log complete I was paid and our client headed to the surface.

We then headed to Crystal Palace at Sub-warp with Wolta and then Nocturaline at the helm. A small diversion was made in Gordon’s Belt for some minimal skilling.

Space chat was very active most of the journey, most of it seemed to he insulting pirates.

Space Skilling Saturday 36 (At Rocktropia & on to Monria)

Location:- Rocktropia.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline & Myself.

We started on time, Wolta took the first shift at the helm, she reported that there were very few mobs, I was kept busy though it was mostly using the RK-5, Wolta turreted the Cosmic Horrors at the end of her stint.

Nocturaline took the second shift, she managed to find more mobs, I was using the RK-20 quite a lot. I offered to kill the stack toward the end of her shift but she thought there were too many so she turreted them instead which took an extra 15 minutes or so.

I was last to the helm, I found quite a lot of Horrors and had to leave the seat several times to prevent the ship from blowing. At the end of my stint I sidled up to the pack and using the lower starboard gun killed them all, at the beginning of this process I could only kill 1 or 2 before I had to exit the seat, at the end I could take my time.

Once all had finished I set course for Monria Sub-Warp. the journey went without incident with all three of us aboard and conscious the entire time, I think that maybe a first.

This week’s entertainment was supplied by the Miskatonic Musings, Mike & Mike & The H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast for me. Wolta was listening to Alain Bashung and Nocturaline was listening to a youtube conference “marion sigaut, sur les lumieres”.
