Part 46: Day 44 - Weapon of choice

Day 44 – Weapon of choice

Before we deal with the scales of justice, I put all of Al's 10 skill points into crafting, and Julia's 12 into exploration. This way, we will be able to get our two main tasks done in less time.

The voting was two to one in favor of choosing the weapon on the scale, so let's go get it.

Julia should be able to gaffle it without any problems.

Ok, so maybe one problem.

If only Julia had a weapon to defend herself, then maybe she would have an easier time getting this weapon.

The added injury is annoying, but she did get a nice skill boost out of it. I am not entirely sure what the fighting stat does in the game, but a +20 stat boost is nothing to scoff at.

AM Tasks

Yuri, Al, Alice - Rest

Winters & Illyana – Craft the infirmary (53% complete)

Julia – Explore (Result – 58% exploration of the next area)

Jacob & Bob – Fish

It looks like we are going back into the jungle for our dinner.

Jacob is too banged up from his nighttime foraging, so it is up to Bob for this.

Bob is not the stealthiest fellow on the island.

He is still in relatively good shape, so he is in no real danger.

He gets a decent haul, so I begin to wonder why our regular yields have been so bad recently.

That is probably why. Either the rod has been wearing down fast from overuse, or I forgot to repair it last time I repaired the camp.

We still have some rope left over, so we should be able to get it in better shape.

That looks a little bit better, but we should scavenge up some more rope to get it up closer to 100%.

PM Tasks

Jacob, Bob, & Winters – Chat

Julia – Rest

Yuri – Cook (Result – 6x fish become 4x tasty meals & 2 regular meals)

Yuri manages to get a level up after all his cooking today. All he really does is cooking, so I will probably either max out his skill or give him a bit more constittution.

Al – Gather rope (Result – 2x rope)

Alice & Illyana – Explore (Result – found a lost backpack)

Another repeat event, but is is a lucrative one.

We have better scavengers, but Julia is our go-to gal for this sort of things.

The meals could be handy if the fishing pole continues to fail us, and the binoculars will help out our exploration.


Al makes a lot more sense than Yuri when counseling troubled youth. Maybe it is because his discussion skill is so much better.

Current Status:

We still have a good bit of depression, but nothing too dangerous. Once we get the infirmary completed, we may need to make some more bandages to cure all of our injuries.

Current Goals:

Still looking for Athena, and construction is still in progress. One or the other is bound to change soon.
