Space Skilling Saturday 217 (At Next Island II)

Start Location:- Next Island Space Station.
Time:- 1857 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads – cooler than cool?

I arrive in a hurry and have to rush to be ready.

Wolta takes us to the Training Grounds we encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1900

Wolta’s hour:- Ntina joins at 1914. Wolta loses some of her first group of Horrors but finds them and they are soon despatched. The loot left a lot to be desired. Wolta reports a gain of 3.36% in Captain skill, the Horrors were hard to find at the beginning but was good at the end.
Kills: (9 + 11) + 11

Cee’s hour:- Horrors were quite sparsely distributed, I think the centre marker for the Next Island Training Grounds is actually at the bottom of it. Loot was quite poor still but skills seemed reasonable.
Kills: 27 + 19

Nocturaline’s hour:- Horrors were few and far between. Plus 1.33% on Captain skill.
Kills: 15 + 20

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 112
Balance – Loss of 89 PED
Return – 71%

Next week we will be staying at Next Island. Apparently we are not “cooler than cool”, maybe next week we will be.


Sub-warp – Toulan to Next Island

So as to be in the right place for the next Space Skilling Saturday I travelled at sub-warp from Toulan to Next Island, during the trip I did not see a single active vessel or any space creature. An uneventful journey but a pleasant one.

Space Skilling Saturday 216 (At Next Island I)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1857 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads – Coffee, coffee, co

I arrive with plenty of time, considering I had come aboard earlier this was not a huge effort, this week the coffee is already made.

Wolta warps us to Next Island Training Grounds at 1900 and we encounter the Horrors at 1901.

Wolta’s hour:- Reports many Horrors and good skills giving +4.42 in Captain.
Kills: 15 + 15 + 3

Cee’s hour:- The hour went very quickly, the Horrors were quite widely spaced and it took a long time to collect a decent group, skill gains seemed a little low as did the loot.
Kills: 23 + 16

Nocturaline’s hour:- Almost immediately Nocturaline reports a good spawn of Horrors. During the first session at the guns Nocturaline had to assist in Engineering and I had to stand, some of those Horrors evade a lot.
Kills: 26 + 19

Nocturaline warps us to Toulan, so I can kill a Thawr Divine with healing assistance from Nocturaline.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 119
Balance – Loss of 115 PED
Return – 67%

Next week we will be back at Next Island.

Space Skilling Saturday 209 (Sleepyheads are freakin’ 4)

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space Station.
Time:- 1859 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads are freakin’ 4

Its hard to believe we have been doing this for four years but it seems to be the case. Tonight we vist the four main Training Grounds spending 45 minutes in each.

Wolta’s hour:- We begin at Rocktropia. Ntina joins at 1938. 45 minutes into the session we complete the second kill and warp to Next Island Training Grounds, the session clock is paused while we warp. Wolta reports a gain of 4.65% in Captain skill.
Kills: 15 + 11 + 14

Cee’s hour:- First kill after 30 minutes then warp to Arkadia Training Grounds. The Horrors were sparsely distributed at Arkadia but it turned out well. Skills seemed OK and so did the loot.
Kills: 17 + 21

Nocturaline’s hour:- First kills in Arkadia Training Ground resulted in a 77 PED global from a Cosmic Horror Old after which we warp to Calypso Training Grounds. Nocturaline reports a lack of Horrors at the Calypso Training Grounds. Ntina leaves at 2149.
Kills: 13 + 22

We globaled so we move on (though it was not In Rocktropian space), Nocturaline takes us to Crystal Palace.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 113
Balance – Gain of 42 PED (probably negated by the three warps.
Return – 113%
