Once aboard I log off and contact Lizzy requesting she take the ship to Calypso when she can.
Lizzy later reports that on leaving Rocktropia Space Station she is followed by a friendly quad but that this attacks her, she tried to contact me for assistance as it was not deterred by the Ships SI but to no avail. With only about 25% left in one of the repair points she logs. She logs on again about 30 minutes later only to die in space and revive aboard the ship which she then repairs, while repairing she is PM’d by “VanLot Ernestj Cinzano” who she thinks was the quad pilot but she does not understand the message (her English is not good, especially her written English). She tries to contact me again (I was sleeping) and getting no answer sets out to complete her mission. Again the Quad moves in but this time does not attack. Fearing an attack may come later she holds course for about ten minutes before changing course and increasing z before levelling off. She continues on this course for a further time before changing heading to take the ship to Calypso Space Station and is not troubled again.
I consider myself very fortunate to know Lizzy, she is very loyal and did not want to let me down, a true Sleepyhead. I feel some reward is in order in this instance.
Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1847 MA.
Present: Casper, Nocturaline, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads year 5 begins
I arrive with loads of time to spare, I was supposed to make some welding wire this week but couldn’t be arsed, I do have time to make some but again I couldn’t be arsed. Just as well as it turns out. I grab the accumulated gold from multiple auctions and my stash of bio id verification units and head to the ship which is at the Space Station where I upgrade the S.I. before heading to Crystal Palace where Nocturaline joins. I position the ship ready only to be asked if Casper can join, while I stash the bio id verification units at Crystal Palace, Nocturaline begins the journey back to the SS, I get back aboard before we leave Crystal Palace space and summon Wolta. Back at the space station Leroy Casper Hunter is summoned and with him aboard Wolta takes us to the training grounds. At some point in all that I had managed to create a team and invited everyone with instructions to the Sleepyheads to use Team Chat this week.
We encounter the Horrors at 1903
Wolta’s hour:- It takes a while to find some horrors once in the Training Ground. By the end she has managed a gain of 4.14% in Captain skill.
Kills: 14 + 16
Cee’s hour:- The Horrors were sparsely distributed and in gathering the first group I lost track of time, leaving me very little for the second group.
Kills: 24 + 9
Nocturaline’s hour:- I do not remember Nocturaline reporting anything, I do write a rough draft of this as we go but it is blank.
Kills: 22 + 13
This week’s stats.
Kill total – 102
Balance – Gain of 22 PED
Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1758 MA.
Present:- Kahlan, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads one HoF no waiting?
I am on Calypso and make my way to the ship at Crystal Palace via the Space Station. Wolta arrives at almost the same time and takes us to the training grounds.
Wolta’s hour:- We engage the Cosmic Horrors at 1806. Kills 21 for 0. Wolta relinquishes the seat bang on time, we both repair before I take the helm. Wolta reports a 2% gain in Captain and that Horrors were hard to find at the beginning.
Cee’s hour:- Kills 29 for 15, 10 and 122 PED. Kahlan joins with about 5 minutes left. just before we get the global from the penultimate Horror maybe we should all her lucky Kahlan?
I take us to Crystal Palace before going planet side, later I return and upgrade a little more.
A profit of 74 PED and a return of 152%.
Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1758 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Kahlan, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads 70YearsAgoAWeekNADay
I arrived with plenty of time, no other Sleepyhead was online, I checked locations and found Nocturaline and Phil to be in space while Wolta was on Calypso so I took the ship to Calypso Space Station to be ready to summon. Once Wolta is aboard she takes us to the training grounds via Crystal Palace where Nocturaline comes aboard.
Wolta’s hour, I get dumped prior to visiting the turrets which I do twice for a total of 20 kills and next to no loot.
My hour 46 kills for next to nothing. Recent SI upgrades have made 20 Horrors at a time easy. Kahlan joins before the second of my two sessions in a turret, with 26 to contend with this was not so easy, I had stand for a while and it was close for a while when I went back to the guns.
Nocturaline’s hour. Reports few horrors 39 kills with the best loot being just 6 PED, sadly that was the best loot of the night. During the second session Nocturaline had to stand and agro was lost, I edged the ship forward to continue.
A loss of 158 PED with a return of just 48%, distinctly unimpressed.
