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.

A slow week

Log Entry for May the 4th 2014

I did not get much on-line time this week so this should be fairly brief assuming I can prevent myself from waffling.

I have hunted Various Oratans, Kadra, Halix, Nusul and Otorugi this week, that I resorted to Halix and Nusul shows how poor my returns were (almost 64% for the week). I did complete the Kadra IFN Stage II challenge, on the last hunt of which I resorted to blades, using all of my Archon’s Sword and some of the Dagger of Despair to complete the mission, it was good fun if expensive.

Wolta completed her 4800 Riptor challenge, it has taken quite some time and lots of dedication, she reports the reward was good and got a trophy too.

7 skill gains this week, nothing particularly interesting. My Vivo T1 (yes I still use one of those when I have time) reached tier 1.9 as is ready for upgrade, the items I need to do this are in storage on Calypso I think. The Karma Killer reached tier 4.7, I am looking forward to tier 5.

That’s it. Hopefully I will have more time in the coming week.
