Space Skilling Saturday 117 (Leaving no one behind)

Start Location:- Rocktropian Space
Time:- 1810 MA .
Present:- Kahlan, Maritina, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Achilles’ heel!

I login and Wolta logs off, we wait until she returns at 1908. Wolta takes us out and we encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1818. Kahlan joins at 1828. Maritina asks to be summoned at 1834 but we are not at the Space Station, I agree to return for her during my session at the helm. Wolta reports only 3% Captain skill during her hour.

I take hour 2 and as agreed head to Rocktropia Space Station to pick up Maritina, there and back takes nearly 15 minutes off of my hour. There were a reasonable amount of Horrors but a few more would have been nice. Skill gains seemed OK and I managed 1 loot over 20 PED in just 2 visits to the turrets.

Hour 3 is Nocturaline’s, quite busy in Engineering and another 20 PED plus loot. I forget to start the timer so we don’t know when to stop so Nocturaline decides, she got a 4% gain on captain.

Nocturaline returns us to Rocktropia Space Station, as I have a couple of decent stackables I take the TP after agreeing to return in my Quad to bring Maritina to the surface. Which we did.

A loss of 72 PED and a return of 69%

Space Skilling Saturday 116 (Maritina’s first session)

Start Location:- Rocktropian Space
Time:- 1800 MA .
Present:- Maritina, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads it’s what we do

Summoning occurred in 2 phases, Phil and Kahlan had remained aboard though Kahlan was not online this week.

As is usual Wolta took us out, we encountered the Cosmic Horrors at 1808. There was plenty of repairing going on in Engineering. Nocturaline needed me to watch a video on YouTube to try to work out if Kong idols are destroyed when summoning Mighty Kong, the video was not clear but I suspect the answer is they are. In my first visit to the guns I killed 7 Horrors, for 7 a lot of damage was being done. Wolta reported a 5% gain in captain at the end of her hour.

I took hour 2 but had problems finding Horrors, in spite of touring the area all I found was the odd few and had to spend a lot of time making sure they kept up. I did not get much skill.

Nocturaline took hour 3 needles to say she found Horrors within minutes! On my second session in a turret there were a couple of decent loots, all the rest had been poor this night. Nocturaline experienced a spell with no mobs but managed to find more and gains a rank in captain, gratz to her.

At the end all but Phil and Myself descend to the planet with Maritina travelling with Wolta.

Maritina did well, being alert and swapping repair points according to need, active repairing is what I like to see.

Results for the session were a Loss of 64 PED which was a return of 69% dude!

Space Skilling Saturday 115 (An Easter miracle)

Start Location:- Calypso Space
Time:- 1850 MA .
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads clocks going forward

I arrive to find Phil already aboard, minutes later Nocturaline warps in from Arkadia, we wait for Wolta, who once on line I summon twice before Nocturaline points out we are at Crystal Palace. I jump into the chair and take us to Calypso Space Station where I successfully summon Wolta. The upshot of this is we start 6 minutes late because of me not being prepared, it’s the only thing I have to do and I fail.

Wolta takes us to the training grounds and we engage the Cosmic Horrors at 1921. Soon after she reports that “skill is not bad for the moment :)”. Loot was it’s usual dire self but at the end of her hour Wolta reported a 6% gain in captain.

I took the next hour, plenty of Horrors, I didn’t notice anything special about the skill gains or the loot, my first session at a turret was against 18 Horrors and went quite well. Kahlan joined us at 2057. Not sure how many Horrors I had to kill at the second visit as I was forced to stand a while and could not remember how many I had counted when I got back into the turret.

Nocturaline took the 3rd hour and to my surprise there was some decent loot. We were kept busy in engineering so there were plenty of Horrors. On a later visit to the turrets we managed a decent global and got a couple of arsonistic chips to go with a smaller one looted earlier. About time I think.

Nocturaline took us back to Crystal Palace, where I stashed the loot, then onto Calypso Space Station to pick up a new recruit, Maria Maritina Kwstantina, a friend of Kahlan’s, before warping us to Rocktropia.

We finished about 2300, a long session.

Result was +17.81 PED, 107% return, makes a very pleasant change.
