Part 17: Day 15 - Camping

Day 15 – Camping
Before we get the day going, we have to get our morning chores done. Three of the fruit from yesterday get juiced to keep us hydrated, and 2 wood go onto the fire to keep us warm. We are down to our last two healing herbs, so I give them to Bob and Al.

AM Tasks
Winters, Yuri – Rest

Julia & Jacob – Jacob is getting really depressed from the fishing, so these two will Chat. We also find out a little bit more about Julia.

Not bad. She will not be researching, or using the medicine skill, but this does help out with discussion and the raw intelligence skill.

Illyana – Research (Result – 20% completion)

Bob – Fish (Result – 5x fish)

Al – Gather for the cookpot. The game lets us see the possible outcomes when we assign people to a task, so we can optimize our gathering.

If I had Al gather rope, he would only get 0-3, so we would need to have an additional gathering session to get the fourth piece we need for the cookpot.

By setting him to get wood, we don't waste any time.
(Result – 5x wood)

Alice – Explore (Result – found an abandoned camp)

I wonder if this is Johnny's camp? Let's have Julia poke around and find out.

This will give us a full three days of water for our gang. That saves us about ten fruit that can now eat instead of drink.

Not as hydrating, but definitely more pleasant. These are our only antidepressants right now, so they will go straight to Bob and Jacob so that they can fish all day today.

This decoy is the Hunting booster. If we build the hunting gear, we can use this to give someone a +5 to their hunting skill.

Johnny? Is that you? I hope there is a good reason for why Julia took this. Maybe the item description can help us out some.

Nope. It looks like Julia is just starting up a collection. I guess we will just stuff it in the trunk between the rum and the smelly cheese

PM Tasks
Al– Rest
Illyana – Research (Result – 28% completion)
Winters - Harvest fruit (Result – 5x fruit, and levels up)
Yuri & Julia– Gather rope (Result – 5x)
Jacob & Bob – Fish (Result – 3x fish)
Alice – Explore (Result –80% completion on the next zone)


Perfect! Since fishing has been depressing Bob, this will keep him going all day tomorrow.

Current Goals:

We are almost there. If we have Al and Yuri gather wood tomorrow morning, we should have enough to start building in the afternoon.

Current Map & Status:

We are starting to get to the north part of the island, so we should be pretty close to “Johnny”, whoever or whatever that is.
