Space Skilling Saturday 181 (Double Global)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1756 MA.
Present:-  Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads to hot in France!

Wolta’s hour:- Wolta takes us out and we engage the Cosmic Horrors at 1807 at which time her hour begins. A total of 24 kills with the most notable loot being just 3 PED. Between the 1st and 2nd of three visits to the guns both Nocturaline and I suffer a disconnect (not BT related, as far as we know). Between the 2nd and 3rd visit Wolta spots Starfinder XXXI, Nocturaline informs us this is a Nebula Virus vessel, we prepare to defend but no attack was forthcoming.

Cee’s hour:- Some decent loots this hour, 34 kills for 13, 12, 69, 14 and 77 PED, both of globals are from Cosmic Horror Youngs. Kahlan joins between the 1st and 2nd of three visits to the guns.

Nocturlaine’s hour:- A grand total of 50 kills in 3 visits to the guns, the only loot of note was 10 PED during the 1st visit. Nocturaline had to leave the helm during the 1st and 2nd sessions at the guns in order to assist in Engineering. After Nocturaline takes us back to Crystal Palace reporting a gain in Captain of just 2.63%.

A profit this week of 24 PED and a return of 108%.

Space Skilling Saturday 132 (blah) 

Start Location:- Calypso Space
Time:- 1802 MA .
Present:- Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Rules? What rules? 

We begin on time, while Wolta takes us to the training grounds I supply some Rk-5s and welding wire to Kahlan, I don’t know why but it seemed complicated, maybe it’s the heat!

Wolta’s is the first hour. Nocturaline gains her new level in VSE within the first 10 minutes. The first session at the guns was to kill just 5 Horrors, none of them had anything worthwhile. Wolta reports that Horrors are hard to find. The second visit to the guns and there are just 5 more mobs.

My hour, skills seemed OK and the distribution of Horrors was quite good, I had to stand twice to avoid the ship blowing, pity the loot was still poor, it has been a long time since we have seen a Sleepyhead global.

Nocturaline’s hour began with a little manoeuvring to allow me to finish the last of 17 Horrors. Nocturaline soon picks up a decent stack and after just 10 minutes needs 12 killed, again little loot. With two more visits to the turrets during Nocturaline’s session it looks like she managed to get the most mobs but still got just less than a 3% gain in Captain skill even while using a 30% skill pill. Of course loot was poor the entire time.

Nocturaline returns us to Crystal Palace, she had heard reports of pirate activity in the Calypso system so I sat in a turret during the approach. However there was no need.

I store loot at Crystal Palace before descending to the surface as a passenger in Antzy’s quad.

This week’s loss is 130PED, being a return of just 50.50%.

Space Skilling Saturday 130 (“[System]: Failed” repeat for 2 hours)

Start Location:- Calypso Space
Time:- 1753 MA .
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads screw the migration 

With only the usual suspects on-line we depart Calypso Space Station early with Wolta at the helm. We arrive in the Training Grounds at 1807 and encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1808, the distance is too great.

Wolta’s hour begins slowly and I endure lag and many “Failed” repair attempts. This got worse so I re-logged to no effect. Others do not seem to be affected. My first visit to he guns gives a loot of about 30 PED, a good start but I’ve been fooled before. Wolta reports seeing a pirate but we are passed by. The Fails continued along with random chat lag, the second session at the guns was quite poor as was the third.

My hour next, it went quickly, there were fewer Horrors than I am used too, skills seemed OK but loot was poor.

The third hour belongs to Nocturaline, I continue to have many fails while repairing and using the guns is frustrating as they are unresponsive. Nocturaline had taken a 100% skill pill and gained almost 7% captain skill during her session.

After Nocturaline takes us to Crystal Palace, the only advantage to hunting here is space storage.

This week’s loss was 107PED, being a return of 64%.

Space Skilling Saturday 103 (The consequences of loyalty)

Start Location:- Calypso Space
Time:- 1858 MA .
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Full Thrust for 2016

We start with just Wolta and myself aboard, I had a message from Nocturaline earlier saying she would join us during the second hour.

Wolta took the helm and I sat in the rear turret while we left the Calypso system and headed to the training ground, just before arrival I left the turret and took my place in Engineering. We engaged the Cosmic Horrors at 1911. Wolta was cautious with the quantity, as there was only myself repairing things could easily go wrong. After my first visit to the guns we decided we could probably do more but both Nocturaline and Phil logged in about 1930 so there was no need to be concerned by it. We are kept very busy in Engineering, with the RK-20s not always managing to keep the ship in good condition. At the end of Wolta’s shift I am called to the guns for the 2nd time and find there to be only 6 Cosmic Horrors!

I take the next shift, I find the mob density to be quite good but that skill gains are low, I encounter a dense group of Horrors and ask Wolta if she may have lost them and she admits that she “Might of”. We manage a decent global during my second change of seat and have several Nova only loots.

Nocturaline takes the third hour, she reports a lack of mobs but finds some after changing location, there are a few decent loots as well. After her hour Nocturaline returns us to Crystal Palace where we disembark.

I head to storage there and stow all the loot with the exception of a mind force implant before heading back to the hanger and launching my Quad, I emerge to see Nocturaline and Wolta disappearing towards Calypso and head after them. I spot a hostile ahead of me, heading from the Space Station to Crystal Palace and wait for it do dock before continuing. As I leave the safe zone a Friendly comes into view also heading from the Space Station to Crystal Palace, this friendly is being pursued by a hostile, micjack. micjack breaks off his pursuit and comes after me, I turn and we begin to fire at each other while circling at quite close range, I manage to land a few hits but his experience pays off, my Quad is destroyed and shortly after so am I, fortunately I have no lootables about my person. I revive on the ship and decide to wait before continuing. Soon after both Wolta and Nocturaline revive next to me. Having loyally come to my aid micjack had also destroyed them, he brags of destroying 2 Equus in space chat, can’t really blame him for that.

Today’s results were quite good, a gain of 43 PED which was a return of 117%.
