Taking being a Sleepyhead seriously.

Log entry for the 8th of February 2015.

It seems being a Sleepyhead is going to my head and I’m rather liking it. 4 day siestas are definitely the way to go.

Monday, I visit the Underground, the tube stations have rubbish names and there’s no proper tube map. I try some Oratan Miners and manage nearly 5 PED profit, I had a very small celebration drinking a shot of beer, pissed that up the wall!

Wolta and Myself try a key 6, these are always both intense and fun. We were both surprised to be getting loot from the mobs we encountered and to make things a little easier both dropped a loot pill. At the end we could find no chest and were both disappointed, we took the TP out of there and after totalling the results I found I had lost over 200 PED and had a return that was just over 30%. I have to say that sucked and I was regretting my earlier extravagance re that shot of beer.

Later I tried an Oratan camp and then some more Miners where I managed to lose another 130 PED, really not my day, I don’t like Mondays.

Siesta time, that beer really went to my head.

Saturday, I awoke feeling refreshed and full of hope, Black Monday was in the past and it was time for super lucky shiny golden Saturday. The Oratan Miners owed me some PED so I went to collect, they pleaded poverty and somehow I ended up losing another 120 PED. Gits!

Having had enough of being fleeced I invested a few PED in an Explosive Projectiles II Blueprint and a further 100 in Nanocubes before setting to work at a manufacturing terminal, I was still optimistic about super lucky shiny golden Saturday in spite of my earlier setback and was pleased to have lost only a little under 11 PED.

Later I headed into space for super lucky shiny golden Space Skilling Saturday, the Cosmic Horrors were bound to have something, how wrong I was, I watched as super lucky shiny golden Saturday transformed into awful unlucky smelly shit brown Saturday and by the time it was over I had lost a further 145 PED.

Sunday, all hope had been beaten out of me by something that was both brown and sticky. I was considering just staying in space and chatting with people but I was within just over 2% of gaining level 57 in Laser Pistoleer (Hit) so I descended to the surface and made my way North East to take on the Otorugi with no amps fitted to the Karma Killer, I had 500 PED of universal ammo and decided to just keep shooting until it had run out. I managed 2 globals, 1 of which was into 3 digits, got to 57.0045 in Laser Pistoleer (Hit), woohoo and killed 96 Otorugi which brought me to the grand total of 96/1200 in the IFN Otorugi Stage 3 challenge. Of course I lost PED, well almost, actually I lost PEC, 78 of them but hey that’s almost profit.

During the week 4 additional Soc. members logged in and played quite a lot, Tiger, PBG, Lucky and Ulleh. I hope to visit Calypso next week so we can hunt together for a while, it would be like old times.

Nocturaline purchased an Equus but did not get the UL thruster and warp drive, she is hoping they will show up on Monday.

The week in summary, I lost over 600PED with a return of almost 82%, slept quite a lot and got to chat with some old friends, praise the Ols. Next week I may decide to sleep more.

Ancient Greece and lifting my embargo.

Log entry for the 11th of January 2015.

Monday, I began the week on Next Island where I had a go at some Portal Guardians, I had only my Hoplite armour due to the weight restrictions imposed by my mode of transport, I thought it only fair to use weaponry of a similar ilk so I kept the Karma Killer in its holster and unsheathed the Archon’s sword. I found these quite easy with the ancient equipment.

Tuesday, back in time to Ancient Greece, it’s like coming home though I was not really ready to return, those Steropes Cyclops are still too tough for me. Instead Wolta and I teamed against the Brontes Cyclops, with me only attacking until about half way before healing Wolta while she finished them with her Philosopher’s Sword. We did quite well.

Friday, I took on the Brontes solo, this time doing remarkably badly for Ancient Greece, this cancelled out Tuesday’s return. Later I tried a couple of Steropes Cyclops solo, I was resurrected several times on each occasion but did walk away with a profit before leaving Ancient Greece with slightly more gold than I arrived with. I did leave the Hoplite armour there as I have not been using it elsewhere.

The rest of the day was spent travelling, firstly back to Crystal Palace with Wolta in her Equus then after taking our equipment from storage onto Arkadia.

Saturday, I was still in space and took my Quad out to take on some Cosmic Horrors with predictable results although I do feel I’m getting better at this. After it was time for Space Skilling Saturday.

Sunday, I lifted my self imposed embargo of Arkadia as it is the new year and the duration of my exile had come to term. I took the quad via a circuitous route to avoid the lurking pirate. Once on the surface I went shopping finding some Medical Tool heal enhancers V and some Weapon Skill Modification Enhancers V, both of which I purchased.

Later I looked through the outstanding IFN challenges and found the Otorugi stage 2 to be nearest to completion requiring me to stay 100 to complete the 400 required. I took “The Bad Moon Rising” to their location, popped a skill pill and set to, one hour later I had gained some skill, lost about 150 PED, had reached 367/400 and raised the Karma Killer by 2 points to 5.6! After taking a bit if a rest I returned to finish the 400,this time without a skill pill as I knew it would not take an hour, this time I lost only 15 PED and after turning in the mission reached 56.6839 Laser Pistoleer (Hit).

The week had reached its glorious end and to my surprise I had done quite well managing an 85% return and the loss of only 260 PED. I had also purchased some more Lux luggage and a pitcher to assist me in organising way to much carried equipment as well as Weapon Modification Enhancers that would enable me to fill all the 5 slots of the Karma Killer although much of this requires collection from Calypso.

Many Kreltin just one Equus

Log entry for the 4th of January 2015.

Monday, I’m on Crystal Palace in Dome 2, I start with 540/1000 Kreltin, after today’s 2 hunts I’m at 656/1000 and lost only about 7 PED in the process. I met my first Kreltin Guardian and must admit I struggled to finish it, not a practical mob for me at the moment.

Wolta has put in a bid for an Equus Quad Wing, rather exciting that. I had considered it myself but I’m no fighter pilot.

Tuesday, just the 1 Kreltin hunt today bringing me to 712/1000 with a higher loss than I would have liked, no matter I’m edging closer to the handgun skill implant reward.

Wednesday, New Year’s Eve, 2 more Kreltin hunts, the loss on the 2nd one was very high, I think there were few people hunting as it was a little late, I ended at 830/1000. Wolta has won the auction for her Equus and between the hunts we take it for a spin around Crystal Palace, both of us were carrying our normal equipment and the poor thing hardly moved, I think the Pathfinder is quicker. We both begin to look at how we can get our equipment to under 100kg.

Thursday, New Year’s Day, I start a new diary and look at how much I have spent last year, it is scarily high, I think I may need to cut down on my time in the Entropia Universe. I manage 2 hunts today the first of which was very poor, not a good start to the year. The second was better but still quite poor, I claw my way to 942/1000, I should finish on the next hunt. I spend some time juggling equipment in an attempt to reduce my weight, I have one case with 0.8 AntiGrav so I can use that to help reduce the load but it’s hard to select what I should take.

Friday, just the 1 Kreltin hunt today, the results were very poor again, fortunately I completed the 1000 today and took as the reward the 16.09 Handgun Skill Implant, this gave me about 20% of a level in Laser Pistoleer (Hit).

Saturday, with the Kreltin mission completed I moved to Dome 1 where Wolta and I teamed to take on the Aurli, initially I used no amp on my pistol for this as the idea was to let Wolta take the kills and complete her Aurli 500, once that was done and the reward taken I fitted the A104 and tried to keep the kills even by holding fire for a few shots on every other Aurli, this mostly works except for the times when the Aurli ganged up on us. Another loss but a lot of fun, with a few cock ups which are always entertaining and 3 globals.

I took the teleporter to the surface of Calypso, I needed some supplies and to collect a few won auctions as well as placing some myself. While on the surface I was contacted by “jok star de PE LeMagniFIK” who gave me 70 PED for scoring 7 Ambulimax globals in OLA 17 about this time last year, I only vaguely remember the competition.

Later it was Space Skilling Saturday.

Sunday, Wolta and Myself lose as much weight as we can and go for a test run in her Equus, with us both under 100kg the Equus was able to power away from Crystal Palace and with that behind us Wolta engaged warp and took us to Next Island Space Station, the warp was very quick by comparison with my last warp to Next Island in the Pathfinder. Once out of warp we went to the training zone where we took on the Cosmic Horrors before heading back to the Space Station where we compared the speed of the Equus with that of my Quad, it was significantly faster. We then headed to the surface of Next Island. Where I hunted various mobs mostly using the Archon’s sword.

I managed to lose a little over 800 PED this week with a return of almost 85%.
