Part 19: Day 17 - Illyana's jungle adventure

Day 17 – Illyana's jungle adventure

Well, the vote was to send a depressed person to befriend the fox, so I think that Illyana could use it after last night.

Wrong animal Illyana. The one you want only has one head.

Man, she cannot catch a break today. Hopefully we managed to find something nice after all that.

Nope. It looks like we actually lost an herb from that event. Maybe Julia will have better luck with the spiders.

Since we are already hungry, I split the sprouts evenly between Alice, Winters, Jacob, & Al.

I don't think that these are the kind of mushrooms that go on pizza. They will give -20% depression, but will cause +10% sickness. Since depression is a lot easier to cure than sickness, these are fairly worthless.

AM Tasks
Illyana, Al – Rest

Julia & Bob – Chat

Jacob – Fish

I wonder if he is using homeopathic fishing bait.

Yuri & Winters – Craft the cookpot. (Result – 24%)

Alice – Explore (Result – found a lost backpack)

Since there is only the one option, I will send Julia in as usual.

We need Yuri, Al, Alice, & Winters in peak condition for work, so these 4x Ginseng will go straight down their gullets.

There is no point to these meals being non-perishable, as we will be eating them ASAP.

It is a bit of a waste to give this to Alice, since her Hiking Fan skill boosts her skill gain, but I want her skill maxed out to find new locations quicker.

PM Tasks

Yuri & Illyana – Craft the cookpot. Illyana has a low Crafting skill, but her good relationship with her dad makes this pairing the most efficient one (Result – 51%)

Jacob & Bob – Fish

See Jacob, the use of modern scientific methods gives much better results.

Winters – Harvest fruit (Result – 5x fruit)

Julia & Al - Gather herbs for our sickness (Result – 4x herbs)

Alice – Explore (Result – found a mushroom circle)

I don't know which is worse, eating weird mushrooms in the middle of the bizzaro forest, or bringing them back to share with everyone. If there are any mycologists in the audience, now is your time to shine.


Ok, this is getting weird. I have never seen Alice trigger this many events in a row. Maybe it triggered because of Illyana gaining so much depression?

Current Status:

We just need to keep our sickness down, as it can spiral out of control when it starts increasing on its own. I will probably also give some painkillers to Illyana to treat all those animal bites she got today.

Current Goals:

If this pace keeps up, we will finish with the cookpot tomorrow. We also need to decide what to do with the mushroom circle in the jungle.
