Present:- Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads out of the zone!
Nocturaline had mined some gold on Cyrene and kindly added this to the ships armour increasing the Structural integrity, my thanks to her.
Wolta warps us from Cyrene to the location Locusta are known to be and we engage them at 1807. These can be tricky, they are faster than us so the potential for the ship blowing is increased, especially whilst we are killing them as plus one man in a turret is minus one man in Engineering. Wolta reported good skill gains, loot was poor with the exception of one of 37 PED.
I took the next hour, for me the skill gains seemed OK but the loot was dire all the way through.
Nocturaline took the last hour, for her the skills were poor though the loot improved marginally. Normally I carry 500 PED of ammo for SSS but during Nocturaline’s stint I had to visit the TT for an extra 100 PED worth, these take more to kill and are faster to collect. After Nocturaline took us to Next Island Space Station dragging a Locusta most of the way, this provided Engineering with a little to do and was something I could watch from a turret. After I kill it, all but Nocturaline and I log. After docking at NI we descend to the planet’s surface in my quad.
Looks like I managed to lose 187 PED this week which gives a return of 66% Quite expensive but fun.
