Space Skilling Saturday 216 (At Next Island I)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1857 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads – Coffee, coffee, co

I arrive with plenty of time, considering I had come aboard earlier this was not a huge effort, this week the coffee is already made.

Wolta warps us to Next Island Training Grounds at 1900 and we encounter the Horrors at 1901.

Wolta’s hour:- Reports many Horrors and good skills giving +4.42 in Captain.
Kills: 15 + 15 + 3

Cee’s hour:- The hour went very quickly, the Horrors were quite widely spaced and it took a long time to collect a decent group, skill gains seemed a little low as did the loot.
Kills: 23 + 16

Nocturaline’s hour:- Almost immediately Nocturaline reports a good spawn of Horrors. During the first session at the guns Nocturaline had to assist in Engineering and I had to stand, some of those Horrors evade a lot.
Kills: 26 + 19

Nocturaline warps us to Toulan, so I can kill a Thawr Divine with healing assistance from Nocturaline.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 119
Balance – Loss of 115 PED
Return – 67%

Next week we will be back at Next Island.


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 214 (At Arkadia II)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads – Evening Beautiful

Arriving in time I make the team, get aboard and make coffee. Nocturaline is already on-line, soon Wolta and then Phil join, we start bang on time.

Wolta takes us to the training grounds and we encounter the Horrors at 1903.

Wolta’s hour:- Varyag spotted while I was at a gun for the first time. Wolta reports a lack of Horrors and a gain of 2.67% in Captain skill.
Kills: 13 + 12

Cee’s hour:- Ntina joins at 2025. Loot was not good, Horror distribution was quite good, skill gains looked OK. The middle button of my mouse decided not to work properly so I did the entire hour without the look function.
Kills: 22 + 22

Nocturaline’s hour:- I reconfigured the mouse to work. During the second session in a turret Nocturaline had to go to Engineering to assist with repairs. A gain of 1.29% in the Captain profession for Nocturaline.
Kills: 19 + 28

Nocturaline takes us back to Arkadia Space Station and docks the ship on the Training ground side of the station

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 116
Balance – Loss of 98 PED
Return – 71%

Training TigeRPaw

TigeRPaw had expressed an interest in Space Skilling, some time ago she did warp the ship see Warps: Rocktropia – Crystal Palace – Next Island so is not a complete novice however this was about two and a half years ago.

We took my Quad from the surface of Calypso to the Space Station and then onto Crystal Palace where from the Hanger we TP’d aboard, the ship being positioned too close to the asteroid to permit a direct transfer from the Quad.

From here TigeRPaw piloted the ship from dock to the Training Grounds while listening to my very basic instructions, once Horrors were spotted I stayed in a turret while she collected the first two before going to the repair stations. TigeRPaw collect five in total and once there were no more skills to be had was talked through positioning the ship ready for them to be killed, which was done successfully.

TigeRPaw repeated this without any further instruction, there was a hiccup in that I took a phone call that I could not hurry and we ended up with a little more than five Horrors and a ship very close to blowing from either repair point but we managed it. Unfortunately this did take quite a lot of time during which TigeRPaw gained no skills but some experience.

We went through the process a third time, this time eight Horrors were collected, drained and killed. After repairs I took the ship back to Crystal Palace while TigeRPaw was in Engineering and later in a turret.

The whole session lasted about one and three quarter hours and even resulted in a small profit. At Crystal Palace we went our separate ways. TigeRPaw may join us for Space Skilling Saturday once in a while.
