Space Skilling Saturday 47 (Leaving Next Island)

Location:- Next Island Space.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Phil and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads, bye bye NI

We left a few minutes late, Wolta was first at the helm and took us from the sanctuary of the space station to the training grounds where she proceeded to take damage while the rest of us repaired. We planned to move on at Sub-warp after the session but with Rocktropia, the intended destination, being about 2 hours away there was real danger of the pilot dozing off. Wolta suggested we head to Howling Mine after the Skilling session and that she take the ship to Rocktropia the following morning. An excellent idea.
During Wolta’s session I was called to the turret twice, the second time to wipe out the mobs prior to Wolta leaving the helm.

Nocturaline was up next, she reported that there were not many mobs and it took her a while to establish a decent amount of damage. However she did find enough and again I was called to the turret twice.

I was next to the helm, I found enough Cosmic Horrors quite quickly but I was struggling to stay awake, it got to the point where I could not control the ship as I kept sleeping for a second or two and was wandering all over the place. After 35 minutes I realised I could not continue and after killing a few mobs handed the helm over to Nocturaline and headed for repair where I passed out. I do not know what happened after that.

Nearly an hour later I come round, Nocturaline is piloting the ship, Wolta and Phil have gone. I get into a turret and realise we are heading to Howling Mine, it’s about 20 minutes away.

I normally get tired during Space Skilling Saturday but it has not been this bad before.

Sorry Sleepyheads.

Entertainment tonight for me was all podcasts, some Mike and Mikes, an Inside the Huddle and episode 245 of the H. P. Lovecraft literary podcast. Wolta was listening to Patti Smith and Nocturaline to Marilyn Manson.
