Space Skilling Saturday 176 (Ouch)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1758 MA.
Present:-  Nocturaline, Kahlan, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads 70YearsAgoAWeekNADay

I arrived with plenty of time, no other Sleepyhead was online, I checked locations and found Nocturaline and Phil to be in space while Wolta was on Calypso so I took the ship to Calypso Space Station to be ready to summon. Once Wolta is aboard she takes us to the training grounds via Crystal Palace where Nocturaline comes aboard.

Wolta’s hour, I get dumped prior to visiting the turrets which I do twice for a total of 20 kills and next to no loot.

My hour 46 kills for next to nothing. Recent SI upgrades have made 20 Horrors at a time easy. Kahlan joins before the second of my two sessions in a turret, with 26 to contend with this was not so easy, I had stand for a while and it was close for a while when I went back to the guns.

Nocturaline’s hour. Reports few horrors 39 kills with the best loot being just 6 PED, sadly that was the best loot of the night. During the second session Nocturaline had to stand and agro was lost, I edged the ship forward to continue.

A loss of 158 PED with a return of just 48%, distinctly unimpressed.


Space Skilling Saturday 175 (one Helm, one Crew)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1755 MA.
Present:-  Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads easy targets

Nocturaline and Phil are away on holiday this week so there were only two of us, just like old times. I arrive just in time and seeing that Wolta is on Calypso head to Calypso Space Station to summon her, I have just arrived  when she tells me she is heading to Crystal Palace in her Equus so I turn around and she boards as I head towards the training grounds. I relinquish the seat and Wolta takes us there. I realise en-route that I have only a little over 3 PED in WW, good planning me!

Wolta’s hour: 9 kills for a 20 PED loot, Wolta kindly traded me 5 PED of welding wire, without I would have run out with about 10 minutes to spare, unfortunately during the trade we managed to lose a majority of the Horrors and we ended killing just 2 but the 20 PED loot came from one of them.

My hour: 45 kills with decent loots totalling just 34 PED. The second batch were the ones we had lost during the trade and they had the best loots. Skills seemed good.

I take us back to Crystal Palace, looks like we killed more than expected there were more sessions at the guns but they were shorter. I had forgotten how difficult this can be with a helm and just one crew.

Still we did quite well, a loss of just 32 PED which was a return of 79%.


Space Skilling Saturday 173 (Flat broke)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1759 MA.
Present:-  Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads nothing concrete?

Arriving early I TT most of my Crystal Palace storage contents to stump up enough money to get the ammo. I had 250 PED UA but need more than that so another 250 PED Weapon Cells were purchased. UA was kept in a box to prevent it being used first.

Nocturaline was on CP and we go to the ship at the same time, I position the ship then make the team and invite Nocturaline and Phil before I start to write this log.

Wolta joins, takes us to the training grounds and begins her hour at 1812. Kills 27 and a 185 PED global on a Cosmic Horror mature. After which Wolta reports a lack of Horrors.

My hour, plenty of horrors to begin, 41 kills and a 30 PED loot, horrors became increasingly sparse and by the end I was struggling to find them.

Nocturaline’s hour, 40 kills with 2 x 30 PED loots. I ran out of weapon cells and switched to UA . Nocturaline returns us to Crystal Palace.

In the black for the second week in a row, +78 PED being a return of 126%
