I had had a conversation in the morning with a young woman who was looking for somewhere to repair skill, I offered her a place on Pathfinder XXXI but come departure time neither she nor Yoghurt were on-line. Also absent was Wolta who had informed me in the morning that she maybe late but would join us as soon as she could.
With Nocturaline and Phil aboard I left Calypso Space Station heading for Crystal Palace and was promptly attacked by a hostile quad, he got in quite a few shots but barely scratched the paint, unfortunately I have since forgotten the name.
It took almost 15 minutes to get to the training ground so we decided to swap helmsman at the 15 minute past the hour mark. Whilst in the training zone I spotted a couple of friendlies, one was a quad the other a Vega class vessel. Killing the first stack was quite difficult, as often Propulsion had been fully repaired whilst the Reactor was at less than 50% and I had to wait a long time before I could move into the stack to finish it off, fortunately that improved. Loot was not bad, I scored no globals but managed a couple in double digits during my 3 visits to a turret, just before the last (short) visit Wolta arrived in her Equus to complete this evening’s crew.
Nocturaline took the second hour during which she reported that she had seen another friendly (twice). On my first visit to a turret I got some makeup, either these poor ugly creatures are trying to pull or there is some animal testing going on, it was another double digit loot so OK by me. I got another loot over 10 PED during my second visit. After this Nocturaline seemed to struggle to find mobs and things became very slow in repair for a while. After one final session at the turrets with yet another double digit loot Nocturaline handed over to Wolta. I asked Nocturaline about her session, she reported that although she had received much skill spam her skill gains were not good, which tallies with my own experience tonight. She also reported seeing Starfinder III several times.
Wolta soon found some mobs, but shock Cosmic Horror on my first visit to the turrets all I got were single digit loots and some were less than that. It seems Wolta was having trouble with her left and her right which caused a minor issue, though to be fair she had been drinking the Polish girls spirits! My second session in a turret had the same poor result, it’s as if someone switched the loot off. During the third killing session the loot switch stayed in the off position. Wolta reported that the Cosmic Horrors were sparse and needed to travel a lot to find them. Skills were slow to start with but after were not too bad.
At 2110 Wolta began the journey back to Crystal Palace, as we were on the far side of the training zone this took a little longer than the outward journey and we docked at 2130. Hunting return was at about the 85% mark which is quite good.
Wolta was listening to Pink Floyd, Nocturaline to In Death it Ends and I just listened to the noise of the ship and it’s guns.
