Sleeping tigers

Log entry for 30th of August 2015

Monday, I’m on Crystal Palace. The soc. name change takes effect, we are now “Sleeping tigers”, this brings it almost full circle, when I first joined the soc. was called the “Guardian Tigers”, it changed once before I inherited it and quite a few times since, I thought Sleeping was apt partly because of the Sleepyheads (core crew of Pathfinder XXXI the Ghost Ship), partly because many of the original Tigers are sleeping.

Friday, Teleported to Calypso as I had much to do there, I purchased some sweat from Antzy in readiness for the manufacture of Welding Wire tomorrow.

Saturday, I spend the day restocking and placing auctions. I made quite a lot of Welding Wire. Then purchased tiers 1-6 of 3 different types of Weapon Enhancers, most of these were from The Weapon Enhancer shop, Emerald Lakes Mall, Floor 1, Shop 13. Next I tiered my Viceroy gloves to tier 2 after purchasing some of the necessary components. Lastly it was placing stuff on auction which took quite some time, I still don’t like having to return to Calypso to do this but the way the system is it is not practical to do anything else, the recent changes that enable you to have the goods transported to you for a price is just a way to regulate trade and make sure the main market remains on Calypso, keeping the other planets on the periphery. I’m convinced a free market where the mark-up value of all goods split by planet was available would create a much more even Universal Economy, encourage the transportation of goods between planets and give the newer worlds a chance to build their economy. If that was combined with each planet being able to set its own auction charges a much more lively Universe wide economy would evolve of its own accord.

Later it was Space Skilling Saturday, after which I went to Arkadia where I purchased a little more sweat, some of which was used to make a start on Mission Galactica.

Sunday, Nocturaline purchases a Key 7 and invites Wolta and myself to join here on this mission. As always this was a fun and intense session, once we had won our way through Wolta and I stood back to let Nocturaline open all the boxes. Thank you Nocturaline.

Weekly totals, a loss of 201 PED with a return of 70.24%

Leaving Rocktropia

Log entry for 23rd of August 2015

Thursday, more Motorhead Security,  looking forward to Completing this mission, it has become something of a drag. I lose more PED than I care to.

Friday, my last hunt of Motorhead Security, I complete the mission and still have about 30 minutes of loot and skill pill (10%) so I move over and Serve the Nation for a while slaying Werewolves, an acceptable loss on this hunt. Later I spend an hour slaying Werewolves and did not do quite so well but have reached 1405/10k for the History of Vampire Helena #5. I took Dominique’s Domination #4 but made no start on it.

Saturday, I go for a wander on Rocktropia, it being my last day here for a while (I have plans), I had to terminate a few Mulholand boys and Rocktropians who made a nuisance of themselves. Later it was Space Skilling Saturday.

Sunday, I awake at Crystal Palace and store the stuff I have transported from Rocktropia. Wolta and I team as “Chug’s Nomads last team huntagainst the Kreltin, we manage in less than an hour, 4 globals (410, 51, 62 and 93 PED, including a couple of low/non existent MU items). This was an exceptionally good hunt and we both enjoyed it. The reason this was the last team hunt is because the Soc. name is changing (again).

The result for the week was a loss 76 PED and a return of 95%, thank the Kreltin for that.

A change of scenery

Log entry for the 11th of April 2015.

Monday, I’m still on Rocktropia and still Serving the Nation, A couple of Werewolf hunts each providing a return in the 80%s which is reasonable. I assisted one Miles Main Matheson in his attempt to gain a position in repair on a ship, Space Skilling Saturday went on a little late for him so I provided some contact details. I have not seen him on-line since. Mad Neo Force (a Soc. member) has decided to chip out and is selling all his possessions, its always a shame when this happens though I do understand it, I have considered it myself more than once. Though his play was spasmodic I shall still be sorry to see him go.

Tuesday, more Werewolves, they must be sick of me by now, I managed a 118% return this time which was a nice turn of events. I’m beginning to struggle a bit with a lack of PED, I have so much junk stored on Calypso and I really need to sell some of it so the current plan is to do that instead of taking the lazy option of depositing, it does mean I need to go there for a while though.

Friday, Werewolves, the final fling and another positive run giving me a 127% return and brings me to about 4840/5000 for the “History of Vampire Helena #4” mission, almost finished but I have told the crew and advertised on the site that this weeks SSS is at Calypso so I have to go. Lizzy kindly logs in quite late to transport an off line me and most of my Rocktropian loot to Crystal Palace.

Saturday, At Crystal Palace I TT some low MU loots already stored there and chance my arm, well my trigger finger, against the Kreltin, the return is a tad lower than I would like but I do get to 370/5000 of the Iron Challenge: Kreltin Stage IV. I also break the 60% barrier on my journey to a new level in Laser Pistoleer (Hit). Later its Space Skilling Saturday.

That was my week a change of scenery and a loss of only 81 PED with a 97% return, I would like more weeks like that.

Soc. Event

Log entry for the 15th of March 2015.

Monday, I continue to Serve the Nation and after consuming a Skill Pill proceeded with the ongoing slaughter of Werewolves, as is normal they gave me wood. There is some exciting news, well exciting for me, the Karma Killer reached tier 5.7, it has been a long time coming but it’s crawling it’s way to its next tier upgrade. I managed to crawl my way to 2083/5000 Werewolves, not even half way, I feel I’m racing against the Karma Killer for completion of a mission.

Friday, it was quite late when I joined and was hoping a Zombie Kong would be in progress, it was and I joined at wave 6, there seemed to be 4 or 5 people doing this so I was optimistic that it would not take too long. After wave 8 was over and I was the only one still there I gave up for the night.

Saturday, no Kong at login so it was Werewolves, Werewolves, Werewolves after 3 hunts of different lengths I had reached 2316/5000. Not the most exciting or varied day but that’s why they describe it as a grind. Later it was Space Skilling Saturday and after that a Sub-warp journey to Crystal Palace in readiness for a Soc. Event tomorrow evening.

Sunday, Wolta and I teamed in Dome 2 against the Kreltin, I’m not sure if we won but as an individual I was not far short, we managed a couple of globals as “Chug’s Nomads”, it had been a while since we teamed as we are mostly on separate planets now so it was good to take this opportunity. I’m fairly sure Wolta was switching between using and amp and not in order to even up the numbers when it comes to the mission, I ended at 322/5000 for the Kreltin stage IV mission.

Later I descended to the surface of Calypso where I sorted my outstanding auction purchases and added a few more to give me 5 tiers of Accuracy Enhancers on the Karma Killer, I tried my luck at Fight Club, in order to test this configuration, it seemed reasonable. I did get killed on round 4 when I was pinned to the wall but returned to finish the job. I put quite a few items on auction, one of which sold the same day and several of which I expect not to sell.

Later still, Soc. Event time; Tiger had organised a PvP event for us to participate in. This consisted of 4 rounds using en-knuckles kindly supplied by Tiger. Each of us participants brought some items to be pooled as a prize for the final round. As everyone knows, when it comes to PvP I suck, so I was expecting to do badly.

Ding Ding, round 1; This was a 1 on 1 event winner stays on and involved the 2 pugilists being perched atop a blade of rock, if you fall off you lose, if you are killed you lose. The first fight was Ulleh vs PBG with PBG emerging as the victor, in the second Tiger took on PBG and won when she fell from the blade, in the third it was Tiger vs myself, whilst he dodged about punching me I stood there and just tried to hit back, it took a while but eventually he beat me, it was when I was at the revive I noticed I was still in walk mode, it may have made a difference but I doubt it.

Ding Ding, round 2; This was all 4 of us in a mass brawl in the water, I kept out of the way to start with and when the others were weakened moved in to be killed, which of course I was. I just don’t seem to be able to turn fast enough.

Ding Ding, round 3; Again a brawl but this time in the forest, recognising my weakness I climbed a tree to a point where there was little space behind me and waited to be attacked. I was attacked but I still could not turn fast enough and PBG managed to get behind me somehow. Another fail but I had lasted much longer, as a strategy this was my best bet.

Ding Ding, round 4; The final round, Tiger was not taking part however if he was hit he would hit someone else, this round was to be fought on a large area at the top of a mountain. So far the prizes had all been supplied by Tiger, in this round the prizes were the pool of items us participants had contributed. We were given a chance to take positions before the brawl began. I found a promontory where I could stand, to my right was a sheer drop behind me and to my left the ground sloped away quite steeply, I positioned myself as far back as possible and faced the plateau, Ulleh came at me first, due to the height difference of the ground I was looking straight at her breasts, distracting yes but I kept punching just the same, Ulleh did try to get behind me but fell down the slope and it slowed down her return enough for me to turn and face her again, it was not long before I killed her off, at which point PBG attacked. Again the breasts in the face, again the attempt to dodge behind me, I was really low on health far lower than PBG when she tried to get behind me and fell down the sheer cliff, the topography came to the rescue. I had won the final round, surprisingly by using my brains!

Afterwards we all went and fisted a few Longu before everyone but myself logged. I proceeded to make some welding wire, 548 clicks in total, a small loss was incurred but I made nearly 28PED of welding wire and drank a reasonable quantity of Jim Beam while I did so. After which I logged.

This weeks return was about 82% with a loss of nearly 440PED, not too bad.
