Space Skilling Saturday 45 (Pirate Games)

Location:- Calypso Space.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Phil and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads, too tired to f***!

Previously I had headed back to Calypso from Toulan, it was a long drag, the in flight movie was Pumpkin Head which helped. The journey was very dull and not a ship was spotted between Space Stations.

I had flown a short patrol around the Calypso Space Station and spotted a couple of red triangles so I expected agro on leaving.

I summoned Nocturaline from the planet’s surface, Wolta was on Crystal Palace so we needed to pick her up, Nocturaline and Phil attended to repairs while I flew the ship straight at Micjack, who moved into the PVP area between Calypso Space Station and Crystal Palace, I followed and headed for CP passing Micjack who manoeuvred to attack, it hardly scratched the paint, we flew to CP without issue where we picked up Wolta before heading to the training grounds.

After arrival I took the first 50 minutes, Cosmic Horrors were sparsely distributed. I waited about 10 minutes after I was getting no skills before killing the Horrors so that there was plenty to repair, this occurred twice before I handed over to Nocturaline.

During Nocturaline’s stint both Wolta and myself had some sessions at the guns, the loot was quite poor for both of us but we had fun.

After Wolta had finished off a group of Horrors she took the pilot seat and Nocturaline returned to repairing. The hour went by very fast, all were tired, after the last of the mobs we had engaged were dealt with we headed back to dock at Crystal Palace with Wolta at the helm.

Wolta listened to Noir Desir and Cyndi Lauper. Nocturaline watched/listened to a meta TV podcast. I listened to a couple of Mike and Mike podcasts, the second one was the one with the Golic butt picture, terrifying! After that I listened to the H. P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast, tame by comparison.


Do the Sub-Warp Shuffle

Crystal Palace to Toulan.

I knew I could not complete the entire journey in one go so I set out solo from Crystal Palace heading towards Cyrene, once clear I headed z+ and changed course for Erebos. I saw no other vessel on route and on arrival descended upon the Space Station and hung, nose down, like a whale in song. I left the ship here for an hour or so while I was off-line, maybe it was singing, maybe not.

On my return I headed z+ again and altered course for Howling Mine, I was not sure if I would be able to stay awake long enough to reach Toulan and planned to stay at howling mine overnight if necessary however on approach it became apparent that I would be able to do the entire journey without dozing off so altered course for Toulan and after a little while arrived safely and without incident.

The only ships I spotted on route where docked at Space Stations. Space chat was quite busy  though, after the announcement of changes to space it seems the pirates are rather pleased.


Space Skilling Saturday 44 (So tired)

Location:- Calypso Space.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Phil and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads, 5 more minutes!

Wolta was living up to the name of Sleepyheads, not being on-line at the appointed time. Nocturaline and I decided to wait until 10 past before leaving Calypso Space Station.

At 10 past I headed away from the Space Station toward Crystal Palace whilst Nocturaline made a cup of tea, I had seen very little activity in the area during preparation so did not pay much had attention. A small change of bearing as we passed through Crystal Palace and we were on our way, Nocturaline brought the tea just as we left the neutral zone.

About 20 minutes later after Nocturaline, Phil and Myself had been Skilling for awhile, I had already killed off the first batch of Cosmic Horrors, there was an odd sounding yawning noise as Wolta came on line. We quickly established that she would come to us and after avoiding a pirate patrolling Calypso Space Station was on her way. We carried on Skilling and I found myself killing off the second batch shortly after Wolta was aboard. The dispersal of Cosmic Horrors seemed a bit odd tonight, quite sparse but in small clusters. It was not long until I had finished my time at the helm and after I had finished off the last batch of my piloting stint I relinquished the helm to Wolta.

Wolta also found some difficulty with the mob distribution and commented that I had killed them all off. On my first visit to a turret during Wolta’s command I managed a small Sleepyheads team global on the very last mob looted. Always pleasing that.

Nocturaline took over after Wolta had done 55 minutes. We continued in the same way, both Nocturaline and myself were falling asleep during this session but we both continued, I had to keep standing up to prevent myself from dozing off. As we continued we were all having this problem and it was getting worse so I finished off the last few mobs, Nocturaline went to sleep whilst I took the ship back to Crystal Palace with Wolta in Engineering just in case. Once there we both logged pretty sharpish.

Tonight’s entertainment was for Wolta, Pink Floyd (Dark Side of the Moon and Division Bell). Nocturaline was watching a documentary about UFOs. I listened to the latest podcast from Miskatonic Musings and later a reading of the Call of Cthulhu.
