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%.

Space Skilling Saturday 88 (2 Globals, no waiting)

Earlier in the day Lizzy had taken us to Crystal Palace Sub-Warp and after I had headed out toward Sayah Space again at Sub-Warp but had logged part way there. I logged back in in time to get to Sayah Space where I was met by Nocturaline and Wolta arriving in their Equus’ (Equusi?), Phil was already aboard (he still has not cleaned up).

Location:- Sayah Space.
Time:- 1750 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads myth of a Space Hof

I was already in the seat so I took the first shift. The skill gains seemed a bit low to me and the Cosmic Horrors were a bit thinly spaced but I managed to get some decent stacks for the first 3 visits to the guns and in each of those visits managed at least one loot of about 13 PED. The fourth visit was after not very much time so the stack was small but I still managed one loot of about 5 PED. Not a bad session.

Wolta took the 2nd shift, I forgot to start the clock but fortunately Wolta had made a note. Wolta reported good skill gains and we were quite busy in Engineering too. Wolta did suffer from a disconnect and there was a point were everything hung for all of us except Phil. Best loots were 23 PED during the first visit, 13 PED during the second and 10 PED during the fourth. So far loot had been significantly better than usual and I was feeling pretty happy.

Nocturaline took the final stint in the chair, she also found the skill gains to be decent and Engineering was busy again. Best loots were 2 globals of 89 and 94 PED respectively on the third visit, there was only about 50 seconds between them. Afterwards, Nocturaline took us back to Monria where we disembarked.

Made a profit this week of 97 PED which is a return of 128 %, feeling very happy about this.

Space Skilling Saturday 87 (Lost in space)

Lets face it, it was only a matter of time before I used that title.

Location:- Galactica Memorial.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads at the Memorial

The effort earlier of travelling from Rocktropia resulted in nothing, the person we were hoping to recruit to the crew was not on line at 1800 so we left.

I asked Wolta to Warp us to Galactica Memorial, which after being provided with the way point she did, unfortunately we came out of warp at the wrong z by a very long way and from leaving the station it took a full 30 minutes before we engaged the Cosmic Horrors.

During Wolta’s session I was called to the guns 3 times and 3 times I returned to Engineering with crap, we were however busy down there so Wolta was taking plenty of damage.

I took the second session, I found the skills to be quite good but the Cosmic Horrors were thinly spaced and it took quite a while to get a lot of them close enough together to take to a gun and end their existence, again 3 visits again all poor. Our new recruit did log in and promptly realised she had worked the time out wrong, I hope to have her aboard for next week.

Nocturaline took the last session she gained a Hit Point and a level in Captain, so a good session for her. My first visit to the guns gave me the best loot of the day (about 9 PED), the 3 subsequent visits were all poor.

After her session Nocturaline took us to Monria at Sub-Warp before we all disembarked.

The order in which we pilot seems to have become well established, I think it may be time to mix it up a bit.

Hunting loss for the night was 139 PED with a return of 52%, another poor show by the Cosmic Horrors.
