Space Skilling Saturday 176 (Ouch)

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.


Space Skilling Saturday 119 (a brief visit from Antzy in her pantzy. Get it? )

Start Location:- Rocktropian Space
Time:- 1800 MA .
Present:- Antzy, Kahlan, Martina, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads OnAMissionFromGod

We started on time, all except Maritina were aboard and she was soon summoned. Wolta took us out and began her hour at 1808, when we encountered the Cosmic Horrors of which Wolta reports there were few. Shortly after a nearly naked Antzy arrived in Engineering and she and Maritina logged to sort out a mouse issue. Kahlan joins at 1828. Wolta tells me she increased the S. I. This afternoon by 0.1 per section, thank you Wolta, it all helps. My second visit to the turrets gave a 17 and a 25 PED loot, including a generic fuse.

I take the 2nd hour, a decent amount of Horrors, a few more would be nice, skills seemed good too. About 30 minutes in Nocturaline suffered a disconnect, no one in engineering made any effort to cover the loss and I decided to let the ship blow, there has been a lot of not paying attention going on lately and I thought a big bang might shake things up a bit. Maybe a little more attention will be paid in future.  Wolta apologised for leaving her post.

Nocturaline’s hour begins with Kahlan vanishing and Antzy returning, I had invited Antzy to #sleepyheads earlier and this worked, getting to have quite a few members which is very pleasing. With about 25 minutes left and after 2 visits to the turrets Nocturaline reports a lack of Horrors and at the end a gain of 4% on Captain which is not bad apparently.

Nocturaline listens to Lindemann. Wolta has peace and quiet but only because she forgot to play any music until late when she listens to Boby Lapointe. Antzy, Kahlan and Maritina talk. I listen to Miles Davis and some mixed Jazz albums.


Space Skilling Saturday 100 (a milestone SSS)

Start Location:- Arkadian Space
Time:- 1900 MA .
Present:- Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Scarlott, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads and the 100th SSS

With all aboard a couple of minutes later than planned, I instructed Wolta to Warp to wherever she wished to skill, she promptly took us sub-warp into the Arkadian Training Grounds and we spent an hour skilling there against the Cosmic Horrors. Nocturaline had supplied some snowballs when she came aboard and a snowball fight broke out in Engineering at one point, Wolta spots a Mothership but did not get the name, a UFO perhaps?

After her hour Wolta hands over to me and I warp to the Locusta, this pushed the ship to the brink at one point, but it was well worth it, Engineering were kept busy for most of the hour and I managed a couple of small globals as well as a few decent loots. It seems 11 Locusta is about the safe limit with the combined repair ability of the crew and the current SI, the ship could handle a little more but if one happens to spawn too close it would be a case of emptying the chairs.

I pass on to Nocturaline the same instructions as I gave Wolta, Nocturaline elects to stay with the Locusta. 2 decent loots occur during her stint. It was necessary to supply an RK-20 to Wolta towards the end of the session. I spend some time explaining to Kahlan how to warp the ship. Once she was happy I asked Nocturaline to move the ship clear of the Locusta at the end of her shift and then hand the chair over to Kahlan for her first warp, which Nocturaline does.

Kahlan sits in the chair for the first time and initiates a warp which arrives very close to Crystal Palace, she then docks the ship swiftly, a very good job for this Warp Virgin. As there has been increased hostile activity of late both Nocturaline and myself manned the guns but we were not required.

Not a bad session, failed to make a profit but the loss was only 57 PED and the return was 90%.
