Space Skilling Saturday 215 (At Arkadia III)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1856 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads – Evening Beautiful

I arrive with plenty of time, I was intending to do something on the surface first but that would have left me little time to prepare so it had to wait. There is a delay while I make coffee.

Wolta takes us to the training grounds and we encounter the Horrors at 1858.

Wolta’s hour:- Varyag spotted at 1905. Ntina joins at 1940. Only 1.71% in Captain skill.
Kills: 14 + 16

Cee’s hour:- During the first session an 883 PED HoF from a Cosmic Horror Provider. Obviously the loot was good, it would have been nice to have had a few more Horrors and skills seemed a bit slow.
Kills: 21 + 20

Nocturaline’s hour:- Ntina reports a cheeseburger is ready! Less than 1% gained on Captain skill for Nocturaline.
Kills: 22 + 18

Nocturaline takes us back to Arkadia Space Station on the way Pathfinder XVIII is spotted, flying a red triangle but with no title.

I decide that when we HoF I should share something with the crew, to be going on with it will be for each person 1 x RK-20 or 2 x RK-5s. Nocturaline and Phil elect to give theirs to Ntina, so Ntina receives 6 x RK-5s, Wolta takes an RK-20.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 111
Balance – Gain of 816 of PED
Return – 347% (exactly)

Next week we move on to Next Island, the plan is for Wolta to warp us away from Arkadia at the beginning of the session. I will also be able to change the team name now that’s is mysterious purpose has been served.


Space Skilling Saturday 83 (half strength)

Location:- Rocktropian Space.
Time:- 1803 MA.
Present:- Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads on a Ghostship

Nocturaline and Phil are on Holiday so we were down to two.

We left a few minutes late having decided to have 75 minute pilot sessions instead of the usual 60 and to have a break in between.

Wolta took the first shift and reported that there were not many Cosmic Horrors although from the repairs I was doing I think this changed. During her shift I visited the guns 4 times and on 2 occasions gained a Generic Fuse as well as a few other half decent loots.

After the break I took the second shift, I found it quite easy to find mobs. Wolta told me she was running out of Welding Wire so I took a short break and supplied some. At one point I got a 3rd Generic Fuse and again had a few better than normal loots. Towards the end of my session Wolta’s RK-20 ran out and by the time she had repaired the ship as I took it back to the Space Station her RK-5 had expired also.

A decent result this week which makes a pleasant change, a loss of only 19 PED with a return of 90%.

Space Skilling Saturday 23 (at Next Island)

Location:- Next Island Space.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline & Myself

I had not realised that I was low on welding wire, and that both my RK-5 and my RK-20 were close to expiry, so about 2 hours before the session I made a quick supply run to Arkadia where I stocked up on all 3 items. Good job I did, when it came to RK-20s both Wolta and Nocturaline would not have lasted the session.

Vinge was unaware that we were doing this at Next Island until about 5 minutes before we were due to start. I had tried to let her know earlier in the day but her visits to EU are often very brief. She elected not to make the trip in her Sleipnir. Had she been on earlier I could have given her a lift.

We set off slightly late as we had to trade for RK-20s before we began. I took the first hour and found it easy to get a big group of Cosmic Horrors, skills were very good to start with and I managed a new level in Captain skill with which I am most pleased. I had a little over an hour at the controls and at the end had moved to an almost empty sector of the training ground.

Wolta took the next stint, judging by how quickly the SI went down she must have found quite a few mobs very quickly, Nocturaline and I were both kept busy at our repair stations while Wolta turreted the herd she had collected before returning to the training ground for more.

Nocturaline was next, first thing she did was turret what was there. After that it was business as usual, both Wolta and I were kept busy, we ended the session at 2100 MA, all of us were tired.

Space chat was active in spurts, there was an interesting conversation about what the colour of the triangles denoting vehicles means, it seems it’s a bit complicated and there is a thread on Planet Calypso Forum about it which I started to read while repairing, fortunately I realised this was a bad idea before there were any serious consequences although I did try attacking the reactor with a knife as well as using a regeneration chip on it, neither of which worked. I’ll read it tomorrow now it’s time to sleep.
