Part 30: Fifteen Screenshots Of Donnel Hitting A StumpUpdate 30: Fifteen Screenshots Of Donnel Hitting A Stump
You were forewarned.
Welcome back to Rune Factory.
The love of HiMoo should make you feel comfortable as you descend into the pit of madness.
Sadly, Leo didnt have the Axe ready today, I must have miscounted, so I just did a mining run and went to bed.
Yes! Power courses through my veins! Level 3 Axe!
Speaking of Level 3, thats the highest Leo can elevate one of your tools. You need to use the Smithing function to get them stronger, but that requires...you guessed it, the house upgrade. So basically, were now at the best possible chopping speed for farming the upgrade.
Toros Cave contained the first Stump to fall to our new weapon. Thats a lot less RP than it used to take. Stumps go down in 3 fully charged hits now, which is also significantly faster. It still feels slow.
Oh, hey, another stump.
Let me tell you, I love stumps.
So, has anybody played that new World Of Warcraft expansion? I hear thats good.
Its got that purple dude with the tattoos people like. I was never really into it, but hes all over my browser ads.
I know what youre thinking Hippoman, shut the fuck up, also thats a twig, but every twig counts. Everything that brings me closer to 2000 Wood helps to heal my soul.
See that? Thats another 1 wood. Thats 1/2000th of the way there. In one screenshot. Fascinating.
Stairs? Where could they lead?
My god...more wood.
So, yall seen that Stranger Things show?
I dont even have a joke there, Im just trying to be topical.
I might as well get some Camping points while Im out here.
That stump regrew overnight!
It must not survive.
A whole new room! Full of wood!
So have yall seen that Daredevil? Good show.
After a long day of wood chopping, it seems Donnel has a letter!
What? There might be content after all?
Thankfully, HiMoo is happy to supply the milk. Its a dairy show, after all. I dont think Cheese or Yogurt works, just FYI.
This triangular box is going to be Donnels magnum opus.
But I should get the Watering Can upgrade from Leo.
And then pass out.
You may note this is the first Festival weve encountered that Donnel can actually participate in! What a milestone! But first, lets see what wise words the villagers have for us.
I thought they were called Peekamoos. Arent Buffamos the male ones?
Does...does Wesley think milk is piss?
Im beginning to think Sabrina has a problem.
I will destroy this man and his stupid shoulder strap.
I dont know what it is about Jean, but I read all of his lines in such an voice, and this was really funny to me for some reason.
Russell has hidden Lactose Intolerance, I guess?
If I wasnt going to make the stupid log joke, this would be the update title.
A lot of Tabathas lines in particular seem to do this thing where parts of other, completely different conversations just butt their way in. Im not sure whats up with that.
We now must deposit our entry directly into the Maw Of The Jasper.
Now, you have to like, pasteurize this, and make sure its safe, and-
: How good is this! I have sampled all of this years milk, and so its time to announce the winner.
Why do you make it so hard to love you, Jasper.
Go fuck yourself, Sirius.
Oh, I make that much on a rock. Eh. Not too concerned. I definitely didnt reload like, four times to see if this was random chance. Not me.
I think my cow hates me.
So, it turns out all the villagers get new lines after you win/lose the festivals. They really arent very interesting, its mostly just Better luck next year!
Donnel stomps off, axe in hand.
THIS IS MY HAPPY PLACE.
So, have yall heard about...fuck, Im out of references.
I wont lie, this part of the game is a huge drag. Im going to be offscreening most of it from now on. But I had limited time to put together an update this week, had some overtime at my job when I usually do this, so this update happened. I feel like its, at least, a good taste of what the Wood Grind feels like.
On the bright side, the Ignis dropped a treasure!
Unfortunately its shit.
So yeah. My sincerest apologies about this part of the game. I considered doing a dumb joke like sticking the DLC maps from FE12 in here, but...eh.
I promise well have content again, one day.
Also I miss my watering can.
Only 1253 Logs to go!
this was a mistake.
