Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1747 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads FFS, it’s Bas!

I arrive in plenty of time and move the ship to Calypso Space Station where I summon Nocturaline, we move to Crystal Palace where Wolta joins and warps us to Arkadia Training Grounds at 1759 we encounter the Horrors almost immediately.

Wolta’s hour:- Nothing to report. For most of this hour we had to listen to Bas trolling whoever would respond.
Kills: 17 + 16

Cee’s hour:- had to stand during the second session at the guns, decent mob density but both loot and skill gains looked low. Ntina joins at 1950.
Kills: 20 + 24

Nocturaline’s hour:- A Quad is spotted but it doesn’t hang around. Nocturaline reports poor skill gains 1.55% gain in Captain while using a 50% skill pill.
Kills: 16 + 21

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 114
Balance – Loss of 100 PED
Return – 69%

Next week Space Skilling Saturday will take place at Arkadia.

Training TigeRPaw

TigeRPaw had expressed an interest in Space Skilling, some time ago she did warp the ship see Warps: Rocktropia – Crystal Palace – Next Island so is not a complete novice however this was about two and a half years ago.

We took my Quad from the surface of Calypso to the Space Station and then onto Crystal Palace where from the Hanger we TP’d aboard, the ship being positioned too close to the asteroid to permit a direct transfer from the Quad.

From here TigeRPaw piloted the ship from dock to the Training Grounds while listening to my very basic instructions, once Horrors were spotted I stayed in a turret while she collected the first two before going to the repair stations. TigeRPaw collect five in total and once there were no more skills to be had was talked through positioning the ship ready for them to be killed, which was done successfully.

TigeRPaw repeated this without any further instruction, there was a hiccup in that I took a phone call that I could not hurry and we ended up with a little more than five Horrors and a ship very close to blowing from either repair point but we managed it. Unfortunately this did take quite a lot of time during which TigeRPaw gained no skills but some experience.

We went through the process a third time, this time eight Horrors were collected, drained and killed. After repairs I took the ship back to Crystal Palace while TigeRPaw was in Engineering and later in a turret.

The whole session lasted about one and three quarter hours and even resulted in a small profit. At Crystal Palace we went our separate ways. TigeRPaw may join us for Space Skilling Saturday once in a while.


Supply run

Being very short of welding wire, I headed to Crystal Palace at Warp speed to resupply. Once there it was easy to get to the surface of Calypso by Quad.

Nocturaline was stationed at Calypso Space Station and very kindly beamed me up and transported me to Crystal Palace.

From there I returned to Next Island at warp in readiness for Space Skilling Saturday.


Space Skilling Saturday 197 (At Arkadia III)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1753 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:-  Sleepyheads Wolta’s Birthday SSS

I thought I was going to be late today but managed to make it in time to prepare, I even find some gold to upgrade the ship with in my personal inventory, no idea how or when it got there. I travel to the ship in “The bad moon rising” and once there upgrade the SI. Nocturaline and Wolta arrive though I don’t think it was in response to my summons. Wolta takes us out and we engage the Cosmic Horrors at 1755.

Wolta’s hour:- kills 21 for loots of 31, 24 and 9 PED. Wolta only has her birthday to report.

Cee’s hour:- Horrors are very sparsely distributed and skills are very low! Had to stand twice due to a lack of attention in Engineering during the gathering phase. Kills 37 for a 40 PED loot.

Nocturaline’s hour:-  Reports a Quad passing in close proximity, kills 37 for loots of 46, 30 and 11 PED, Nocturaline had to assist in Engineering. Starfinder XV was spotted. Nocturaline returns us to the Space Station.

This weeks result is a profit of 48 PED, which is a return of 116%.
