Dead in Bermuda

Part 8: Day 6 - Cheese, but no fruit

Day 6 – Cheese, but no fruit

Yuri's Injury was up to 29%, so he gets a bottle of Painkillers. I send Julia off to search the Couch of Death, and she finds:

2x 101 Sudoku (+5 Intelligence) (both go to Bob to help his dismal Int.)
1x Painkillers (-20% Injury)
1x Empty Bottle (Does nothing on its own, but we might be able to fill it with something later)

She decides to take a break on the couch afterwards.

She loses fatigue, but gains a bit of depression from spooning with human remains.

She then decides to swim with the fishes for a bit to clear her head.

Well, it looks like that swim cleared up some of her depression. Looping between the two events, she has managed to lose more depression and fatigue than she gained from the events. Of course, there is the risk of monster attacks each time you go to the events. All these Stealth checks from the events (one failed, two succeeding) means that Julia has managed to level up her base stealth to 89. Since the couch and swimming events can be reapeated indefinately, this means that Julia can remove massive amounts of fatigue and depression at will (with only minimal risk). Of course, I will try not to abuse this too much (unless you guys want me to).

AM assignments
Yuri – Scavenge the plane (Leveled up and found 2x wood, 1x rope, 1x two-star meal, 4x barely edible stuffs, 2x fish, 1x First Aid magazine (+5 Medicine))
Illyana, Jacob, Bob – Rest
Al, Winters – Build the fruit basket (Result - 43% done)
Julia – Research. She has low skill, but she can do the last 3% on her own. (Result – invented Fishing Rod)

Here is the text and items needed for the Fishing Rod.

Alice, – Explore (Result – found Floating Chest).

Here are the options for the chest. Playing Pirate is a one-shot Depression cure, and hiding the booty does not say what it will do.

I think I will hold off on these events for a bit though.

PM assignments
Al– Scavenge the plane (Found 1x wood, 1x rope, 1x Painkillers, 2x 1-star meals, 4x barely edible stuffs, 2x Ginseng Juice (-20% Fatigue))
Illyana, Jacob – Research (Research is up to 29%)
Bob & Yuri - Build the fruit basket (Result - 97% done...Again?)
Winters & Alice- Rest
Julia – Gather wood (her skill is bad, but we don't need him anywhere else)

Nothing major happend in the afternoon, so onto the night. Let's see what happens!

With Bob's Intelligence score, I am not surprised by the fact that he had trouble in college.

We do not have enough real food to go around, so I had to give out some of the meat and fish to feed everyone. Luckily, only Julia gains sickness from it, and only 2 points at that. We can easily treat that with our medicinal herbs. Once we get the basket done, we can start using fruit to safely supplement our diet. Fruit does not restore much hunger, but it gives no sickness. When we get the fishing rod, we can also gather herbs to cure the sickness the raw fish will bring.

Of course, that will all need to wait for tomorrow.
