Space Skilling Saturday 21 (Sleepy Heads)

Location:- Arkadia Space.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Vinge, Nocturaline & Myself

Calico had got in touch via Twitter prior to this session starting, she was wondering if I could help out one Super Muis who is a noob in her Soc. who is interested in repair skilling. Happy to do so, I asked her to ask him to FL me which he did. Once online I soon established that he was on Calypso and would not be able to get to our session this evening, there was the possibility of another time but I told him I would chat with some other pilots once they came on-line to see if I could get him into some other session. During the session I noticed Badass advertising the BIG Industries session starting at 0000 MA and after a brief conversation was able to forward Muis enough details for him to join. I do not know if he succeeded.

We left the Arkadian safe zone bang on time with me taking first stint in the chair, mobs were easy to find and I spent most of my session as pilot building the same group as skills seemed to be quite good. I did have to turret them eventually though and was in the process of gaining a new group when I noticed I had been in the chair for 1 hour and 10 minutes so I handed over pilot duties to Wolta.

Wolta piloted for the next 55 minutes and we were kept busy at repair, though I did spend a few minutes at the beginning AFK while I quickly nuked some food (that may have been my mistake). Wolta needed to turret the group a couple of times.

Nocturaline took the last 60 minutes, again we were all kept busy in the bowels of the ship but I did find myself dozing off on more than one occasion. After confessing this to the others it seemed Wolta had the same problem, so after a brief discussion we decided to end the session and Nocturaline docked us at the space station. Wolta logged, Vinge and Nocturaline left the ship before I logged also.

Entertainment tonight was a Mike and Mike podcast followed by an Inside the Huddle podcast.

As I write this my head keeps falling onto my chest, been feeling tired recently but not normally this bad, I’ll reread it before posting but will probably miss some errors.

Space Skilling Saturday 20 (Some Master Plan)

Location:- Arkadia Space.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Vinge & Myself

Wolta took the first stint in the chair and soon had Vinge and myself working away burning welding wire. I managed a VSE level skill gain quite early in the session and a crafting gain in something later on. After just over an hour Wolta relinquished the chair and I piloted for the rest of the session, nearly 2 1/2 hours which was tiring, I did get another skill gain but I do not remember what.

Space travel channel was entertaining , micjack and Goldy were talking about some master plan giving free warp flights and delaying all other warp flights by 30 minutes as well as not pirating , the objective of which is to make MA update space. They did explain it several times to several people but it did not make sense to me. It went on for almost the entire session with several people getting quite angry, no idea what will happen but am quite keen to find out what but it made me laugh a few times.

Tonight’s entertainment for me was provided by Miskatonic Musings podcasts, I think I’m about a year behind with these. Wolta was listening to Pink Floyd Live in Berlin. Vinge was drinking cider and consuming crisps and dip.

Space Skilling Saturday 19 (“what happened?”, “what happened?”, “what happened?”)

Location:- Arkadia Space.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Vinge & Myself.

The usual suspects were back together again after a couple of weeks running at reduced numbers.
I took the first hour in the chair, we were attacked by a quad as we left Arkadia Space Station, the crew began repairing and the attacker gave up and retreated to the station.

Skill gains seemed quite good, I had to turret the first ball of Cosmic Horrors, the second ball caused the ship to blow. I had noticed that the Propulsion unit was being maintained whilst the Reactor was getting very little repair, clearly the crew were not paying attention! I had left the seat more than once to prevent the ship being destroyed but mistimed it when receiving a critical and the ship blew. Once we had re-materialised everyone asked “what happened?”. The timing was quite good as it was the end of my session so we repaired and then Nocturaline took us out for the second hour.

The crew where much more attentive now and Nocturaline piloted so as to bring a lot of damage to the ship, keeping all of us on our toes and very busy.

Wolta was up next and we did our first loot lottery, Vinge won the grand total of 82PEC with a guess of 4PED. Wolta brought us some good skills whilst listening to “Dark side of the Moon”. During this session Nocturaline maxed the RK-20, gratz to her.

I took the 4th stint and got a nice quantity of Horrors after us. Also enjoyed some banter with other space travellers. At the end I blew the ship again and we repaired it at the Space Station before logging.

My entertainment for the night was a week’s worth of Mike & Mike pod-casts, I had got quite a long way behind with these.

Space Skilling Saturday 18 (Scum attack)

Location:- Arkadia Space.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Vinge, & Myself.

Wolta takes first stint in the chair and reports that skill gains are low, repair skills also seem a bit slow. Later Wolta reported that pilot skill gains had improved, I cannot say the same for repair. We were attacked by someone, he concentrated on the reactor, when it got to less than 50% I started repair with the RK-20, he gave up soon after that.

I took the second stint and it was a long one, I had to leave the chair several times to prevent the ship from blowing, towards the end I was struggling to stay awake and I was cutting it very close. We cruised back to the station after 3 hours and 10 minutes.

Wolta was also tired and logged on the ship once we had docked, Vinge and myself finished repairing the ship before heading to the surface in my quad, on the way we encountered some other scum, I circled keeping him in my sights then backed away. At this point he attacked, I fired back but was beaten. Vinge and myself repaired and then headed planet-wards again, this time with no incident.

Entertainment for me was all podcasts:-
Inside the Huddle (12/5),
Best of Mike and Mike (13/5),
Miskatonic Musings episode 12 (quite a long way behind on this one).
