Part 37: Day 35 - All downhill from here

Day 35 – All downhill from here

I haven't been reporting all of the fruit I have been juicing and wood I have been burning for routine upkeep. We are out of fruit, and we are starting to run low on water, so I will need to send someone to start harvesting again. We have been gathering wood for the infirmary, so we have plenty to feed the fire.

AM Tasks

Al, Yuri, & Illyana – Rest

Jacob & Bob – Depression is easier to cure than injuries, and we are doing fine on hunger, so we will fish instead of hunt today (Result – 3x fish)

Winters – Harvest fruit (Result - 3x)

Alice & Julia – Explore (Result – found a stone cairn)

It looks like we can search the cairn without destroying it, so we will do that first.

It looks like this is a knowledge check, so Illyana is our girl for this. Thankfully, she also has a pretty decent stealth skill, so she has a good chance of avoiding any monster attacks.

And she manages to sneak on by. It looks like stepmom Julia is rubbing off on her.

Unfortunately, it looks like she picked up on more than stealth from Julia. It seems like she is also becoming a bone collector as well. We may come back later to scavenge or offer plants, but I am not sure why we would want to mark our territory here.

PM Tasks

Bob & Jacob – Chat

Illyana – Research (Result – 15% completed)

Yuri – Cook (Result – 3x fish become 3x tasty meals)

Al & Winters – Harvest fruit (Result – 5x fruit)

Alice & Julia – Explore (Result – found a marble chest)

There is only one option here, so we might as well open our Christmas present a little bit early.

And it pays off. We get two of the best healing items in the game out of it. These will probably be saved for Julia and Jacob in case their injuries get too bad from hunting.


It looks like Illyana has also began copying Julia's sharp tongue. She did have quite a bit of fun doing it though.

Current Status:

We are still good on hunger, but we may need to have another chat session to bring down the depression that is creeping over the camp. We will also need to keep an eye on Jacob and Julia's injuries to make sure they do not get too bad.

Current Goals:

We need to find Pollo, and also get the infirmary tent made. We have enough water to last for a while, so Al and Winters can go back to collecting materials for the construction.
