Space Skilling Saturday 211 (At Calypso II)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1845 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads dream of summer

Arriving in time I move the ship from FOMA to Calypso Space Station where Nocturaline joins and Wolta is summoned from the surface. Wolta takes us out passing through the Crystal Palace Safe zone on the way to the Training Grounds. Why call them Training Grounds, clearly there is no ground involved surely it should be Training Zone.

We encounter the Horrors at 1859

Wolta’s hour:- Ntina joins at 1935, just minutes after the first session at the guns. Wolta reports reaching 178k in skills.
Kills: 14 + 13

Cee’s hour:- All seemed pretty average, loot was a little low but had improved from earlier.
Kills: 20 + 21

Nocturaline’s hour:- I was dumped just four Horrors into the second session at the guns. Nocturaline reports a gain of 1.08% in Captain skill.
Kills: 20 + 19

Nocturaline takes us to Crystal Palace.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 107
Balance – Loss of 34 PED
Return -89%

After the session I had to the planet’s surface and begin the task of making Welding Wire, I intend to spend the week on the surface making supplies from Blueprints and materials.

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 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 51 (Captain F***wit)

Location:- Calypso Space.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present:- Wolta and Myself (Captain F***wit) .
Team name:- Sleepyheads your nightequus

We started slightly late, I (Captain F***wit) had not allowed enough time to leave Calypso, get to Crystal Palace and put most of my possessions into storage there, why would I (Captain F***wit) do that? Because Wolta has purchased an Equus and we are both trying to limit the weight we carry so that we can go and have some fun in it, we did try with our usual equipment load but it hardly moved.

During the trip from Calypso Space Station to Crystal Palace I (Captain F***wit), encountered Red PrimeRed Culver, we had a brief chat in local which was later continued in private chat after a friend request (clearly he does not yet know what a F***wit I (Captain F***wit) am. We talked about the limitations of a Vega Class ship in as much as it has no docking bay. I (Captain F***wit) explained the entry and exit mechanism and invited him to board at some point for a look around and a play. We will try to schedule this for a later date.

We had an uneventful journey from Crystal Palace with myself (Captain F***wit) at the helm. Once in the training zone I (Captain F***wit) soon found quite a lot of Cosmic Horrors, skill gains were low though. It was after about 30 minutes that I (Captain F***wit) realised that I (Captain F***wit) had put his welding wire and all of his RKs into storage at Crystal Palace immediately before leaving! We quickly made plans for a return to Crystal Palace after my (Captain F***wit’s) stint at the helm so that these items could be retrieved. This would drop the skilling time available by about 30 minutes.

After I (Captain F***wit) had completed an hour at the helm, had 3 sessions at the guns and not got much loot. I (Captain F***wit) steered us back to Crystal Palace without incident, where I (Captain F***wit) retrieved my welding wire and RKs, it was at this point that I (Captain F***wit) realised his RK-20 was at only 16.6%. Fortunately Wolta came to the rescue by giving me hers to use.

During my session as pilot I (Captain F***wit) gained a level in a couple of skills but lost what little dignity I (Captain F***wit) had left.

Wolta took us back to the training zone where she initially had trouble finding Cosmic Horrors and accused Captain F***wit of killing them all. However this was soon proved to be erroneous and I (Captain F***wit) was kept busy in Engineering with frequent trips to the turret to dispose of some Horrors. Cosmic Horrors are quite cute, would be good to get one as a pet, train it to level 7 then let it flop about at Twin Peaks. I (Captain F***wit) did get an almost global during Wolta’s stint which helped to make the trip relatively inexpensive.

At the end of the session Wolta took us back to Crystal Palace where I (Captain F***wit) returned her Rk-20 having used 1.1 PED of it. This session was good fun, partly due to the F***witery.

Tonight’s entertainment for Wolta was provided by Pink Floyd whilst Captain F***wit listened to nothing partly because he does not deserve to and partly because he forgot!
