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%.

Space Skilling Saturday 184 (I Noob)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1755 MA.
Present:-  Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads with Captain Noob

I arrive in good time and get myself to the ship which is docked at Calypso Space Station, Nocturaline informs me she is at Crystal Palace and that Wolta is already aboard ship. I take the ship out and whilst passing through the Crystal Palace safe zone Nocturaline teleports in. I continue out of the zone heading towards the Training Grounds when Wolta joins us and I relinquish the helm so she can take us the rest of the way. I should add that for reasons I shall not explain I am dressed in my noob suit, sadly not the tradition orange.

Wolta’s hour:- We engage the Horrors at 1807. Kills 21, loots of note, 31, 8 and 70 PED from a Cosmic Horror Mature. Wolta reports the Captain is a noob, something we have all know for a very long time.

Cee’s (Captain noob’s) hour:- Kills 43 for a 16 PED loot and little else, well I am a noob and my note taking skills are lacking.

Nocturaline’s hour:- A Quad is spotted in close proximity to the ship the reputation is notable, it moves away without any encouragement, possibly it was drawn to my noobness like a moth to a flame! Kills 41 for a 45 PED loot. Nocturaline takes us to Crystal Palace.

A loss of just 5 PED and a return of 99%, noobing pays off?
