Part 9: Day 7 - Week in review

Day 7 – Week in Review

Well, lets see what we have to work with today.

Yuri and Al are both fatigued and depressed, so I give them each a cup of coffee and box of chocolates (the true breakfast of champions!).

AM Tasks
Al – Scavenge the plane (Result - Levels up and finds 3x drugs [cures sickness with the proper tech] and 3x barely edible stuffs)
Winters & Yuri – Gather wood (Result – get 6 wood)
Bob – Finish that last 3% of the fruit basket.

Jacob – Research (Result - gets up to 45%)
Julia & Illyana – Rest
Alice – Explore (Result - finds a strange blue woman?)

Well, at least she likes animals.

Now that Julia is rested up, let's send her off to check that chest (the pirate's chest from last time, this is not that type of game).

Searching it, she finds...

Cheese? It removes 20% hunger, but gives 10% sickness in exchange.

While she is out, she might as well see what's up with that blue chick.

I think that this is inappropriate enough already. Let's see if she is a better talker than she is a pet owner.

I put all of Al's skill points into Harvesting (Al has the Family Farmer trait, so he should level this up fast), and put a few logs on the fire before sending everyone off to the afternoon.

AM Tasks
Yuri – Scavenge the plane (Result – find 3x bandages [cures injury with the proper tech], 3x barely edible stuffs, 1x fruit)
Winters & Julia – Gather wood (Result – Gain 4 wood)
Bob & Al – Harvest fruit ( Result – Gain 5 fruit)

Apparently all that crafting work was to get us a basket and a flag. At least this will give us a constant source of food.
Illyana– Research (Result - gets up to 64%)
Jacob – Rest
Alice – Explore (Result – finds a shipwreck)

We still don't have enough items for our fishing pole, but I think we made good progress today. Let's see what the castaways think about it.

It looks like they all are feeling good about trusting the naked chick with the dolphin corpse.

With our crop of fruit and barely edible stuff, I manage to get most everyone below 20% hunger (except for Alice and her lousy Bulimia trait). Below is the state of our crew after our first week on the island.

And here is the current map of the island.

And the current skill levels of everyone.

And the current status of their relationships.

Join us next time as we explore the shipwreck and try to track down an appropriate gift for strange naked blue chick.
