Space Skilling Saturday 243 (At Monria III)

Start Location:- Monria Space Station.
Time:- 1759 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyhead Easyriders

I arrive with time to spare and make preparations, Wolta is already aboard and Nocturaline soon joins. Wolta takes us to the hunting zone and we encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1813.

Wolta’s hour:- We failed to loot an Alpha during the second session, the ship did not get near enough before it vanished. Wolta had 5 minutes left on the clock when she handed over and reports a gain of 2.8% in Captain skill.
Kills: 10 + 10 + 7

Cee’s hour:- Had to stand 5 times during the second session, there were only a few mobs above old, Nocturaline had lag issues which resulted in the ship taking lots of damage, I had to stand but each time I did so I was losing the Horrors and had to go fetch them again as a result my hour was more like 75 minutes. Skills seemed reasonable but loot was not, distribution was quite poor and these horrors must have been wearing rings to increase their evade.
Kills: 15 + 22

Nocturaline’s hour:- Nocturaline reports a gain of 1.25% in Captain skill and low mob density.
Kills: 15 + 19

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 98
Balance – Loss of 6 PED
Return – 98%

Next week we will continue testing Monria as an additional location in our circuit.

Space Skilling Saturday 242 (At Monria II)

Start Location:- Monria Space Station.
Time:- 1743 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyhead out for a snooze

I arrive with time to spare but Nocturaline and Wolta are already waiting so we leave ASAP, Wolta spots a hostile but I cannot see it from the Top Rear turret. Phil joins on the way to Galactic Memorial. We encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1800.

Wolta’s hour:- Loot is poor to begin with. Ntina joins at 1833. Wolta reports a gain of 2.29% in Captain Skill and that the mobs were not easy to find. Loot seemed on the low side.
Kills: 8 + 10

Cee’s hour:- I had trouble finding horrors and not many of them were of the larger variety, skill gains seemed OK but loot looked poor.
Kills: 17 + 17

Nocturaline’s hour:- Ntina disconnected about 2005. Nocturaline reports the first batch stopped giving skill very quickly. Ntina rejoins at 2032. During the last session, Nocturaline had to assist in Engineering and I had to manoeuvre the ship in order to loot. Nocturaline reports a gain of 1.74% in Captain skill, which is better than usual, might be something to do with the number of Horrors she managed to collect, mob density was patchy being good in some areas but bad in others.
Kills: 14 + 16 + 18

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 110
Balance – Loss of 79 PED
Return – 78%

Next week we will continue testing Monria as an additional location in our circuit.


Space Skilling Saturday 241 (At Monria I)

Start Location:- Monria Space Station.
Time:- 1813 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Where are they?

I arrive with time to spare which is just as well as I had not moved the ship, I warped to Monria Space Station and then went to the moon for storage before returning to wait for the crew. At 1800 no one was on-line! I sent a message to Nocturaline and Wolta and waited for a reply. Shortly after Wolta arrived. We begin the sub-warp journey to Galactic Memorial. When Phil arrives, he informs us Nocturaline is delayed a few minute, she arrives just as we enter Galactic Memorial. We encounter the Horrors at 1831, they are of the larger variety.

Wolta’s hour:- Reports very poor density and skill, a gain of 1.28% in Captain skill and that she is very sleepy. Because of this she relinquished the helm about 20 minutes early.
Kills: 8 + 6

Cee’s hour:- Distribution was not too bad, skills seemed high but loot low.
Kills: 13 + 18 + 4

Nocturaline’s hour:- Nocturaline needed to assist in repair and I had to pilot briefly during the first session. Nocturaline reports, mob density was OK and a 1.29% gain in Captain skill. I noticed an improvement in loot.
Kills: 21 + 10

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 80
Balance – Loss of 12 PED
Return – 96%

Next week we will continue testing Monria as an additional location in our circuit. Other than the distance to Galactic Memorial I am happy with it so far.


Space Skilling Saturday 104 (WTF?)

Start Location:- Calypso Space
Time:- 1911 MA .
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Soon be Christmas

We leave a little late as we wait for Nocturaline to login, I have been watching the surroundings for some time and have seen several hostiles, most notably micjack. Wolta takes us out while I sit in the rear gun, I instruct her to turn towards micjack if he attacks, he does and Wolta turns, unfortunately for most of the time he is obscured by the ship which was frustrating, I only manage to get one shot off which of course misses. We stop at Crystal Palace so I can stash some lootables. We continue on once I am back aboard and in the rear gun where I stay until we approach the Training Ground.

We engage the Cosmic Horrors at 1929, not a good start! Wolta spots a hostile Sleipnir and watches it explodes after being hit by Horrors. A little later the same thing happens but with a Quad, maybe it’s a full moon or should that be a full Monria? When I first entered a turret the guns became stuck in the vertical position and I and to exit and re-enter to make them work. Wolta reports that skill gains were better when micjack was shooting at us than when the Horrors were attacking.

I take the helm for the second hour, it is during this time that I approach a Cosmic Horror only for it to vanish just as it is about to fire, this also happens twice! Either they are backfiring and annihilating themselves or possibly something ancient and dark is rising on Monria, I shall have to go and check but need to build up my sanity points a bit first. Generally there were not many Horrors today, one of them was unreachable at least at first and loot was poor too.

Nocturaline has hour three and soon reports an unreachable Horror, it seems to happen now and again but is odd, it takes a while for her to find Horrors, as with my stint they are sparse. Wolta spots a 10 PED HoF, no wonder loot is so poor! After my first visit to the guns Nocturaline reports a second unreachable Horror, it promptly vanished! Another unreachable proceeded to attack us for sometime before becoming reachable. My second visit to a turret I click on top front and end up in one of the bottom turrets! WTF is going on tonight?

Results for the session were a loss of 129 PED which was a return of 51%.
