Part 22: Day 20 - Ginseng party

Day 20 – Ginseng party

You guys decided to pass up a yummy meal of seaweed, so let's see what you get instead.

I am not sure why there is an ancient mystical artifact in a random pile of seaweed, but I am not complaining about it.

Jacob still has his skillpoints from yesterday, so I give him 5 discussion, 4 fishing. Since sickness affects food skills, I split the three herbs from yesterday between Jacob and Bob. Bob is cured, but Jacob still has a little sniffle. We can deal with that in the afternoon.

AM Tasks

Julia, Illyana, Yuri – Rest

Jacob & Bob – Fish (Result – 2x fish)

Al & Winters– Gather herbs (Result – 2x herbs)

Alice – Explore (Result – found grapes)

Well, it was low risk but low reward. We were running low on water, so this saves us a bit of gathering time.

Before we go to the afternoon, we have enough healing items now to eradicate the sickness from everyone in the camp.

Yuri & Jacob only have a tiny amount of sickness, so they each get an herb. (-3% Sickness)
Illyana, Julia, & Winters are worse off on sickness, but do not have any other problems, so they get healing waters. (-20% Sickness)
Al could use a bit of a pickup, so he gets the Miracle Potion. (-10% all hazards)
Alice has the highest maluses, so she gets our Fire Crystal. (-20% all hazards)

Now that everyone has 0% sickness, it will never increase unless we get it from an event or start eating raw meat again.

PM Tasks

Julia, Jacob & Bob – Chat

Since Julia is our designated adventurer, this is great for healing up after the odd monster attack when her stealth fails her.

Illyana – Research (Result – 68% complete)

Yuri – Cook (Result – 9x fish become 7x Tasty Meals, 2x generic Meals)

Al & Winters – Gather wood (Result - 8x wood)

Alice – Explore (Result – only 93%, but levels up and gains 7 skillpoints)


I am fairly certain that ginseng is non-alcoholic, but perhaps this is Al's special recipe. Whatever it is, I think Illyana may be below the legal age for it.

Current Status:

Current Goals:

We could build the hunting gear, but we are doing pretty good with just fish. Alternately, we could save our resources for whatever project Illyana is researching.

We have to be getting close to 'Johnny'. You can't get much more northwest than this.
