Space Skilling Saturday 186 (Shore Leave 1)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1754 MA.
Present:-  Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads are in trouble!

I arrive in good time on Calypso, for a change I remember the gold to upgrade the SI then head to the Space Station and upgrade. Wolta joins just as I position the ship. I summon her and and as soon as she is aboard head towards Crystal Palace where Wolta takes the helm and takes us to the training grounds. Nocturaline and Phil have taken shore leave, I’m beginning to suspect there is something going on there!

Wolta’s hour:- we encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1806 when Wolta’s hour begins. Within 5 minutes I need coffee! Kills 14 for a 14 PED loot.. Wolta over shoots the hour by 5 minutes and reports skills were good but that with just one at repair it was difficult.

Cee’s hour:- I assist Wolta to get the ship to full repair before I begin. Kills 36 for a 16 PED loot which included a generic fuse. I have to visit the TT during the first of three sessions at the guns to get more ammo, I was using my emergency supply and had forgotten to buy any! I had to stand briefly during the second session after which there was just one Horror left! I take us to Crystal Palace after.

A loss of 35 PED and a return of 79%.

Space Skilling Saturday 184 (I Noob)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1755 MA.
Present:-  Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads with Captain Noob

I arrive in good time and get myself to the ship which is docked at Calypso Space Station, Nocturaline informs me she is at Crystal Palace and that Wolta is already aboard ship. I take the ship out and whilst passing through the Crystal Palace safe zone Nocturaline teleports in. I continue out of the zone heading towards the Training Grounds when Wolta joins us and I relinquish the helm so she can take us the rest of the way. I should add that for reasons I shall not explain I am dressed in my noob suit, sadly not the tradition orange.

Wolta’s hour:- We engage the Horrors at 1807. Kills 21, loots of note, 31, 8 and 70 PED from a Cosmic Horror Mature. Wolta reports the Captain is a noob, something we have all know for a very long time.

Cee’s (Captain noob’s) hour:- Kills 43 for a 16 PED loot and little else, well I am a noob and my note taking skills are lacking.

Nocturaline’s hour:- A Quad is spotted in close proximity to the ship the reputation is notable, it moves away without any encouragement, possibly it was drawn to my noobness like a moth to a flame! Kills 41 for a 45 PED loot. Nocturaline takes us to Crystal Palace.

A loss of just 5 PED and a return of 99%, noobing pays off?


Space Skilling Saturday 183 (Cosmic Horrors hate to boogie)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1759 MA.
Present:-  Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads We hate to boogie

I arrive late but still earlier than the others who arrive just in time, this did give me time to finish my dinner but not to clean what we laughingly call the Galley. Fortunately we are in space and as everyone knows “In Space, no one can hear you clean!”, it was only a matter of time, I’m surprised it took this long.

Wolta takes us out. On route Nocturaline tells us that there are many complaints of poor loot, not encouraging but undaunted we continue.

Wolta’s hour:-Not a good result here at all with 22 kills the best loot from this was just 3 PED. Wolta reports a 2% gain in Captain skill.

Cee’s hour:- Kahlan joins us shortly after I start, there are a total of 37 Kills with a 22 PED loot. Better but by no means good. I do not report a gain in Captain skill, not because there wasn’t one (I assume) but because I don’t keep track of skills.

Nocturaline’s hour:- Varyag is spotted while I am AFK making much needed coffee (we are Sleepyheads you know). Kills 34 for loots including an 8 and a 23 PED which was the best of the evening. Nocturaline reports a 1.75% gain in Captain skill whilst returning us to Crystal Palace.

This weeks results are actually better than expected with a loss of 79 PED and a return of 71%.
