Space Skilling Saturday 98 (reduced crew)

Location:- Arkadian Space
Time:- 1900 MA .
Present:- Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Gävlebocken vakner

Earlier in the day I increased the ships S.I. a little, with the crew doing this over the past few weeks it seems only right I should contribute.

Nocturaline and Phil are late (2 weeks in a row), Wolta and I wait until Wolta remembers that they are helping a friend, having been told this I also remember. Neither of us can recall what would be happening with a start time, so at 1915 we leave the station with Wolta at the helm.

The first hour is Wolta’s, we are not sure of how many Cosmic Horrors to annoy as while I shoot there will be no repair, we start with getting just 5. When the time came Wolta reminded me to take a loot pill, I forget every week! 5 proved to be easy so we try for 10 next time. This was not necessary as Kahlan joined us at about 1940, Nocturaline at about 1945 and Phil at 1950. Now we don’t need to worry about the Number of Horrors. I give Wolta extra time at the helm to make up for 30 minutes of only me at the helm, during which time she reports that Kronan steals her mobs. Wolta reports “Not many mobs but skill was good and I hear Pink Floyd, I really like them”

I have the next hour, surprisingly there are enough mobs and I manage to get a stack of more than 25 Horrors, there is plenty of damage being taken and the ship starts smoking several times. I see Varyag a few times whilst building the stack but we manoeuvre to avoid each other. Killing so big a stack can be difficult and I have to ask Engineering to change the repair point they are concentrating on twice. During the killing spree we manage a global which is always good. It took most of my hour to build and drain that stack but still managed a decent sized second stack which I polished off almost exactly at the 60 minute point. The skill gains seemed good and the loot was OK too.

Nocturaline had the third hour and soon had a decent amount of Horrors attacking us. I remember to take a look pill before entering a turret for the first time in Nocturaline’s session. At about 40 minutes in Nocturaline spots Kronan. Nocturaline was trying to gain level 22 Captain and was close to doing this so we extend her session by a few minutes so she can complete this. Once done I kill quite a large stack, getting one decent loot before Nocturaline returns us to the station.

This weeks loss was just 58 PED, which was a return 80%, a good week and not just because of the hunt, this session flew by.

Space Skilling Saturday 97 (more nova please)

Location:- Arkadian Space
Time:- 1910 MA .
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Scarlott, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads we want more nova

We started a little late, partly because I was quite disorganised having only just finished a Magurg Breeder hunt and was chatting too, partly because Nocturaline was late.

Wolta took us out from the station and had the first hour at the helm. We seldom needed to use the RK-20, I think there were a lack of Cosmic Horrors. Wolta thinks Kronan fired on us just once.

I took the middle hour, there was just one Horror available to me, I headed toward the centre and slowly picked up a few but they were very sparse tonight which made this quite a frustrating exercise we do this to skill and it is unnecessarily difficult. Oh well.

The last hour belonged to Nocturaline who very quickly reported a lack of Horrors. She did find considerably more than I did however and reported a good skill gain in Captain.

Loot was consistently poor with a return of 61% which was a loss of 87 PED. I think I got less than 30 Nova.

Kahlan, Phil and Wolta logged aboard ship, Nocturaline returned to the Arkadian surface in her Equus whilst Scarlott and Myself went in my quad.

Space Skilling Saturday 96 (Aftershock)


Location:- Arkadian Space
Time:- 1900 MA .
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Même pas peur

Wolta takes the helm first and soon spots Kronan, we are kept busy in Engineering it seems mob density is improved from last week. The first time Wolta calls me to the guns, Nocturaline kindly reminds me to take a loot pill knowing full well that I forget every week. Loot was poor but there were plenty of Horrors.

I took the helm for the following hour, I found the mob density to be low and skill gains poor, loot was also poor with one notable exception, we globaled! A rare event now, the last one was 8 weeks ago.

Nocturaline took her usual last hour, we were busy in engineering again, she did report seeing Normandie and later Kronan. I also got a couple of decent loots. Normandie was spotted a second time on the way back to the station.

A brief log this week, there are far more important things going on. After the events of the 13th we see the spirit of the Parisians shine.
