Space Skilling Saturday 215 (At Arkadia III)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1856 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads – Evening Beautiful

I arrive with plenty of time, I was intending to do something on the surface first but that would have left me little time to prepare so it had to wait. There is a delay while I make coffee.

Wolta takes us to the training grounds and we encounter the Horrors at 1858.

Wolta’s hour:- Varyag spotted at 1905. Ntina joins at 1940. Only 1.71% in Captain skill.
Kills: 14 + 16

Cee’s hour:- During the first session an 883 PED HoF from a Cosmic Horror Provider. Obviously the loot was good, it would have been nice to have had a few more Horrors and skills seemed a bit slow.
Kills: 21 + 20

Nocturaline’s hour:- Ntina reports a cheeseburger is ready! Less than 1% gained on Captain skill for Nocturaline.
Kills: 22 + 18

Nocturaline takes us back to Arkadia Space Station on the way Pathfinder XVIII is spotted, flying a red triangle but with no title.

I decide that when we HoF I should share something with the crew, to be going on with it will be for each person 1 x RK-20 or 2 x RK-5s. Nocturaline and Phil elect to give theirs to Ntina, so Ntina receives 6 x RK-5s, Wolta takes an RK-20.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 111
Balance – Gain of 816 of PED
Return – 347% (exactly)

Next week we move on to Next Island, the plan is for Wolta to warp us away from Arkadia at the beginning of the session. I will also be able to change the team name now that’s is mysterious purpose has been served.


Space Skilling Saturday 196 (At Arkadia II)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1756 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:-  Sleepyheads we are sailing?

Preparation is much easier here and the time taken to get to the Training Grounds negligible, I can see why so many people prefer it. I was ready with 30 minutes to spare. Caught up with TigeRPaw-C.

Wolta takes us out and we engage the horrors at 1757

Wolta’s hour:- Has nothing to report. Kills 20 for nothing of note.

Cee’s hour:- Varyag spotted twice. Kills 35 for a 27 and an 18 PED loot. Had to stand four times during the first session and cannot explain why.

Nocturaline’s hour:- Reports +2% on Captain with 30% skill pills. Kills 41 for a 20 and 2 x 10 PED loots. Nocturaline had to go to engineering as Phil ran out of welding wire, I had to manoeuvre the ship a few times to loot.

As I was at the helm I returned us to Arkadia Space Station.

This weeks loss was 99 PED which was a return of 67%


Space Skilling Saturday 99 (plus an initial warp)

Location:- Arkadian Space
Time:- 1900 MA .
Present:- Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Scarlott, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads No pyjamas party

We being at Calypso Space Station, about 1850, where I summon Nocturaline and Wolta, Wolta upgrades the SI further (Thank you Wolta) while I warp to Arkadia Space Station.  The warp is delayed while Micjack shoots at us for a while, he really is a very pleasant fellow, it does not take too long for him to realise he is onto a loser and turns away. I did hail him good evening but there was no reply, maybe he was ignoring the local channel.

Once docked at Arkadia Space Station Wolta takes the helm and I summon Scarlott, we leave as soon as she is aboard and head to the training grounds.

As is now usual the first hour is Wolta’s and I start the clock once damage is taken. Wolta reports seeing Kronan as do I during my first visit to a turret when I see the ship in my sights. After I return to Engineering, Wolta reports Kronan hails us with a “hello” which Wolta returns. Shortly after my second visit to the guns at about 1940 Kahlan joins us and is invited to the team. Loot was poor throughout.

I took the the second hour, the density of the Horrors was quite good considering both Varyag and Kronan were skilling in the vicinity, I spotted them both at various times during my session. The ship was brought to the point of smoking several times but I did not need to exit the seat, the second herd I gathered did not want to form into a ball and killing them all took 3 visits to the guns, I counted 20 but it’s difficult to be sure. Both Nocturaline and Phil crashed, Phil more than once.

Nocturaline was up next and found few Horrors initially but that soon changed. I had a lot to kill on my visits to the guns and Engineering was kept busy. The loot was consistently poor unfortunately.

A loss of 153 PED was recorded which was a return of just 45%, not a good week for Space loot it seems.

Warp pick-up, Calypso Surface to Arkadia Space Station.

I noticed a potential client asking for a secure warp transport from Calypso to Arkadia Space Station on the #space_travel channel and responded that I could do this but would need to charge a pick-up fee as I was on Rocktropia, this was quickly agreed to and I headed to the ship while adding this new client to my FL, as soon as I was aboard I added him to the passenger list and was soon warping to Calypso Space Station.

On arrival I docked, noticing no active vessels in the vicinity in the process. I summoned the client who once aboard logged off. I initiated a second warp to take us to Arkadia Space Station.

Arriving at Arkadia SS I noticed one Quad Wing Hostile lurking close to the Station but it remained dormant. I updated the twitter feed and waited for the client to materialise. I was paid and we said our goodbyes.

I needed to return to Rocktropia for SSS this evening so headed in that direction at sub-warp but after calculating this would take me 2 hours decided to warp instead. Another uneventful warp later and I was docked at Rocktropia Space Station ready for SSS.
