Log Entry for July 21st 2013
The start of the week was much like the the end of the last, things were going downhill rapidly and even the drones had shallow pockets. I was beginning to think that maybe I should just avoid the bulk of the migration this year and head off world.
I had recently seen a few people around with a rather nice looking armour, I had no clue what it was but thought I would like a set if it’s any good. I think I scanned someone to discover it was the Viceroy Skullcandy edition and the stats. looked pretty good. I could find none on auction in spite of looking over several days. I searched the forums to find this very helpful link . It seems the armour was available from a string of missions on Arkadia and rather oddly once obtained could not be traded nor was it of any value to the TT. It did however have stats. very similar to (slightly better than) gremlin. I have often of late been tempted by the gremlin, a good all round armour and useful against Leviathan and Aurli. My mind was made up. The mission involved the trading of stackables for armour parts so I took a copy of my inventory from the website and worked out what I had, what I did not have (not very much) and what I needed to transport from Calypso (quite a lot).
I knew I would not see Wolta again until Thursday evening so I e-mailed her the link. I spoke with Nocturaline and she was up for an extended stay on Arkadia. I have never been there for much longer than a weekend so a more lengthy visit with time to explore a bit more would be welcome for me. I had planned on going Tuesday evening but events prevented this so Nocturaline and I went on Wednesday instead (foolish as it turns out as Wolta would be on line the next day and we had to go back for her). Details of the trips are available in this ship’s log entry. First thing we did on the planet was have a race around the track, always fun and as is usual I lost :). I got most of the armour that night, I needed only a few veneer of various types and decided to be lazy and buy them at auction.
Thursday night and I completed my set and we returned to Calypso to pick Wolta up. Wolta soon managed to get her first part and we started to hunt for the necessary boards with which to make the veneers. We soon got the boards between us and Wolta got her complete set of Viceroy (with which she is very pleased), my loot issues continued, I was still losing but now I was not losing quite so much.
On the Saturday Nocturaline invited Wolta and myself to join her in an Arkadian Key mission, none of us had done this before and we had no clue as to what to expect. Nocturaline had bought an Arkadian key 1, after some wandering about we found the way in and spent some time running around the underground slaying the various mobs, it was ridiculously easy for the 3 of us, one of us could have done it easily and indeed the following day Nocturaline did do this solo. We all got some loot and guess what, we all lost, especially poor Nocturaline who kindly refused to take any PED to cover the costs of the key.
Afterwards Wolta and I tried a team hunt against the Riptor and the Scoria, the mobs won quite convincingly although we managed a small victory against the Nusul the following day.
