Space Skilling Saturday 261 (At Next Island IV)

Start Location:- Next Island Space Station.
Time:- 1846 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself
Team name:- Sleepyheads reunited

I arrive and am already aboard ship, I decided to stay after last week’s debacle. Wolta takes us out and we encounter the Horrors at 1851.

Wolta’s hour:- Loot started well, even managed a Generic Fuse. Phil really “likes” his RK-5 but WordPress wont let me upload a video file. Wolta reports good mob density and 3.1% gain in Captain skill.
Kills: 14 + 5

Cee’s hour:- looked like there was a large clump of Horrors dead ahead, I assumed these were Wolta’s left overs and went elsewhere. Loot seemed to drop off, skill gains were OK and mob density was a bit low.
Kills: 15 + 20

Nocturaline’s hour:- Phil has stopped, must have finished while I was piloting, it’s a small mercy but one I am grateful for. Loot seemed poor but clearly there were enough horrors, Nocturaline reports a 1.75% gain in captain skill.
Kills: 20 + 22

Nocturaline returns us to the space station.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 96
Balance – Loss of 68 PED
Return – 77%

Next week we will be in the Next Island system.


Space Skilling Saturday 260 (At Next Island III)

Start Location:- Next Island Space Station.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present:- Me.
Team name:- no team name just me solo.

I arrive I am aware that Wolta cannot make it and while I am making preparations Nocturaline informs me that she and Phil cannot make it. So I will have a solo hour. I encounter the Horrors at 1906.

Cee’s hour:- I collect a handful of horrors and am about to go to the guns to kill them but I cannot get out of the seat! I relog, both repair points are at about 25% so I decide to repair before collecting the horrors again. That took 25 minutes. I collect 8 more and again I can’t leave the seat, while trying to relog the ship blows so I give up for the night. The density was a bit sparse, loot was poor, skill gains seemed OK.
Kills: 7

Once I revive I repair the ship with an RK-5 this takes the time to over an hour.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 7
Balance – Loss of 12 PED
Return – 44%

Next week we will be in the Next Island system.


Space Skilling Saturday 258 (At Next Island I)

Start Location:- Next Island Space Station.
Time:- 1851 MA.
Present:- David Draxar Born, Ekimose Desnago Born, Nocturaline, Phil and Myself
Team name:- Sleppyheads – 1 + Borns +2

We are not expecting Wolta this week but are joined by the Borns. Yes, even after all this time I can’t spell Sleepyheads!

Cee’s hour:- Skill gains seemed good and distribution was OK by loot poor.
Kills: 14 + 14 + 12

Nocturaline’s hour:- Reports it was hard to find mobs, the loot seemed to get worse.
Kills: 18 + 15

Nocturaline returns us to the space station.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 73
Balance – Loss of 78 PED
Return – 63%

Next week we will be in the Next Island system.


Space Skilling Saturday 234 (At Next Island IV)

Start Location:- Next Island Space Station.
Time:- 1754 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads 1 – Bas a big fat 0

I arrive with lots of time to spare and am waiting for others to board. Wolta takes us out and we encounter the Horrors at 1757.

Wolta’s hour:- Reports a very low mob density and a gain of 2.45% in Captain skill.
Kills: 13 + 12

Cee’s hour:- Ntina joins at 1907. The Horrors were sparsely distributed and much work is required of the pilot to keep engineering busy, skills seemed low as did loot.
Kills: 20 + 16

Nocturaline’s hour:- A hostile Sleipnir is spotted belonging to “un sacora know”, it out runs us. An improvement in loot. During the second visit to the guns we manage a 51 PED global on a Cosmic Horror Young. Mob density was OK and a gain of 1.11% in Captain Skill.
Kills: 19 + 16

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 96
Balance – Gain of 36 PED
Return – 113%

Next week Space Skilling Saturday will take place at Rocktropia.
