Space Skilling Saturday 202 (at Arkadia VII)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1854 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:-  Sleepyheads are making toasts

I arrive in time and prepare the ship, both Nocturaline and Wolta are on-line. For some reason I am carrying 300 PED of animal liver oil, I thought that was in storage on Crystal Palace! Oh well as I’m already on the ship when I find this I inform the crew we will need to be careful tonight. Just as we are about to leave I get dumped and have to reconnect. Wolta takes us out and we begin at 1856.

Wolta’s hour:- Nocturaline and I are dumped towards the end of Wolta’s hour, big lag before and after. 58 PED global on the very last kill. Wolta reports good skill gains.
Kills: 14 + 16 + 8

Cee’s hour:- Ntina joins about 10 minutes into my hour. Loot fell off as the session progressed. Didn’t notice particularly good skills.
Kills: 21 + 20

Nocturaline’s hour:- Reports not many Horrors, shortly after we are struggling in Engineering.
Kills: 20 + 14

Nocturaline returns us to the Space Station where she and Wolta disembark, Phil and Ntina stay aboard but log and seeing as we did global I warp the ship to Next Island where I TP to the surface and store the Animal Liver Oil and the loot won this session.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 113
Balance – loss of 54 PED
Return – 85%


Space Skilling Saturday 201 (At Arkadia VI)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:-  Sleepyheads Slumber Party

MA even let me deposit this week! I arrive way ahead of schedule but still very full from dinner so I’m quite slow preparing. Last week I decided just to record the number of kills in each session and only include globals in the extra detail, I shall continue with that. Expecting Ntina, a new Drop Zone crew member this week. Once in space I again cannot see the ship and it’s not where I left it, a little hunting around and I see it and then re-position it ready for SSS.

Wolta’s hour:- Quite busy in Engineering, nothing to report.
Kills: 29.

Cee’s hour:- Starfinder XV spotted. I reset my timer in error so ask Nocturaline to act as time keeper. Ntina joins while I am in a turret the second time. Lots of auto-loot auto-lag!
Kills: 34

Nocturaline’s hour:- reports a lack of Horrors at the start of the hour.
Kills: 35

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 98
Balance – 60 PED loss
Return – 80%

Space Skilling Saturday 188 (Skyfall or Skyfail?)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1801 MA.
Present:- Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads no HoF one waiting?

In spite of me running late I arrive in good time and prepare the ship. Nocturaline and Phil have returned from shore leave and Nocturaline has had a good run on Skyfall today. After a brief discussion we decide to try them, Nocturaline gives Wolta the coordinates and we leave the station for a sub-warp journey of about 25 minutes, I sit in the top turret until we are clear of the Space Stations then head to repair in readiness. Kahlan arrives en route and has a dog related disconnect just as we engage the Skyfall at 1828.

Wolta’s hour:-  kills 23 for a 20 PED loot. Reports that noise follows the ship and more that 2% gain in Captain, hoping to get level 20 next week.

Cee’s hour:- kills 33 for a 48 and 49 PED loots, so close! Skills seemed low and there was lag induced rubber banding.

Nocturaline’s hour:- kills 35 for a 13 and a 12 PED loot. Nocturaline suffers a crash and was worried the ship might blow, we did have some close calls but I don’t think that was one of them. Reports a gain of 1.69% on captain without skill pills. Nocturaline returns us to Crystal Palace by which time I was struggling to remain conscious.

A loss of 27 PED and a return of 92%.
