Space Skilling Saturday 103 (The consequences of loyalty)

Start Location:- Calypso Space
Time:- 1858 MA .
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Full Thrust for 2016

We start with just Wolta and myself aboard, I had a message from Nocturaline earlier saying she would join us during the second hour.

Wolta took the helm and I sat in the rear turret while we left the Calypso system and headed to the training ground, just before arrival I left the turret and took my place in Engineering. We engaged the Cosmic Horrors at 1911. Wolta was cautious with the quantity, as there was only myself repairing things could easily go wrong. After my first visit to the guns we decided we could probably do more but both Nocturaline and Phil logged in about 1930 so there was no need to be concerned by it. We are kept very busy in Engineering, with the RK-20s not always managing to keep the ship in good condition. At the end of Wolta’s shift I am called to the guns for the 2nd time and find there to be only 6 Cosmic Horrors!

I take the next shift, I find the mob density to be quite good but that skill gains are low, I encounter a dense group of Horrors and ask Wolta if she may have lost them and she admits that she “Might of”. We manage a decent global during my second change of seat and have several Nova only loots.

Nocturaline takes the third hour, she reports a lack of mobs but finds some after changing location, there are a few decent loots as well. After her hour Nocturaline returns us to Crystal Palace where we disembark.

I head to storage there and stow all the loot with the exception of a mind force implant before heading back to the hanger and launching my Quad, I emerge to see Nocturaline and Wolta disappearing towards Calypso and head after them. I spot a hostile ahead of me, heading from the Space Station to Crystal Palace and wait for it do dock before continuing. As I leave the safe zone a Friendly comes into view also heading from the Space Station to Crystal Palace, this friendly is being pursued by a hostile, micjack. micjack breaks off his pursuit and comes after me, I turn and we begin to fire at each other while circling at quite close range, I manage to land a few hits but his experience pays off, my Quad is destroyed and shortly after so am I, fortunately I have no lootables about my person. I revive on the ship and decide to wait before continuing. Soon after both Wolta and Nocturaline revive next to me. Having loyally come to my aid micjack had also destroyed them, he brags of destroying 2 Equus in space chat, can’t really blame him for that.

Today’s results were quite good, a gain of 43 PED which was a return of 117%.

Space Skilling Saturday 92 (Another dry run!)

Location:- Calypso training ground.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Not Chardonnay 1995?

Prior to departure Nocturaline again upgrades the ship’s SI with some gold she acquired on Calypso, I do not know what I have done to deserve this. There was some discussion about the team name, Wolta seemed convinced I was drinking Chardonnay but I deny this allegation.

We left Calypso Space Station on time with Wolta at the helm and Myself in the top rear gun, while crossing to Crystal Palace I spotted a friendly also making its way to Crystal Palace and being pursued and fired upon by a hostile. I took a few pot shots at the hostile but missed, it is hard to adjust for a manoeuvring ship and I suspect he was too far away. We crossed unmolested and headed on to the Calypso training ground. Kahlan was not present at this time and we did not know if she would join us.

We engaged the Cosmic Horrors at 1814 and some seconds. Sometime after my first visit to a turret, Wolta reports she has lost the mobs she had collected! She does manage to find some of them and I kill them. One above average loot but not by much. Wolta reports a gain of 6% in Captain skill.

I take the second shift, I found the density of the Horrors to be adequate though more would be nice, I got a lot of skill spam but not much skill and not much loot either.

Nocturaline is last and also reports a lot of skill spam and that mob density was good, the loot remained poor but there was good repair Skilling to be had and plenty of Horrors to kill.

We return to Calypso Space Station, I dropped my loot off at Crystal Palace on the way. The plan was to warp direct to Arkadia but a friend wished to accompany us and needed to be summoned from Calypso Space Station so once there we wait. She wanted to bring her disciple who unfortunately failed to respond to a friend request from me and then went afk! Wolta had to log so Nocturaline and I wait for an agreed 15 minutes before we warp to Arkadia without them.

Wolta listens to Jacques Brel, Nocturaline listens to Blacktorn & Rammstein, I listen to nothing, I write this blog and try to pay attention.

Hunting returns are poor a loss of 129 PED with a return of just 48%.
