Part 11: Day 9 - No Exit

Day 9 – No Exit

With a unanimous vote, it looks like we will play it safe and use the raft for resources instead of exploration. As usual, we will send out little miss cat-burglar to adventure in the jungle.
First, we search the raft to see if it is hiding anything

Then we break it up for a total of:

2x wood, 2x rope, and 1x nail. All we need for the fishing rod is one more rope now.

AM Tasks
Jacob, Julia, & Bob - Rest
Al & Winter – Harvest fruit (Results – 5x fruit)
Yuri – Finish gathering rope for the fishing rod (Results – 2x rope)
Illyana – Research (Result – 14% completion and levels up to get 13 skillpoints)
I put 6 points into Knowledge to help with researching, and 6 points into Constitution to help out with her fatigue issues. With her low Con score, she only recovers a small amount each time she rests. This way she will have less downtime and can focus on researching.
Alice – Explore (Results – finds a Big Fig Tree)

Now that we have a second source of food, I give Julia a swim and some couch time before sending her off to get some fruit. The fruit will never spoil, so we can stockpile it, and we can cut the tree once we gather all the fruit from it.

Searching the tree we find:

5x Soy Sprouts (decrease hunger from 1-5%), 1x Tinder (needed to rebuild the campfire if it goes out)

She picks fruit twice, and gets:

1x fruit each time. Unfortunately, nobody has a really good harvesting skill, so sending someone other than Julia would not gain us anything but more injuries.

We now have enough resources for the fishing-pole, so I get that started ASAP. Since our food situation is a bit dire, I take Alice off of exploration duty to help harvest fruit.

PM Tasks
Al, Illyana, & Winters - Rest
Yuri & Bob – Craft (Result – 22% progress)
Jacob – Research (Result – 31% progress)
Alice & Julia – Harvesting fruit (Result – 5x fruit)


I am not sure if either of them will last long with our food situation.

We are down to 8 water in the water barrel, so I will need to use some of the fruit tomorrow to replenish it. Here is the current starvation status:

We can use the soy sprouts to shave off a few points, but we really need to get that fishing pole done and get the cook pot up and going. With the rate we are going, we should have the fishing pole done in two days or so, Hopefully our vegan diet can sustain us that long.
