Day 50 – Tyrants and poets

Keldulas posted:

So has the fighting stat really come up at all? Because I have a handle on what everything else is, but fighting still leaves me confused.

It looks like the fighting stat affects how much damage you take from monster attacks. Julia has a fighting skill of 89 and the tooltip for the fighting skill says she takes -52% to her injuries when fighting a monster, while Jacob has 41 fighting and takes +12% to his injuries in fights.

Now that we have all that wood, we can do some repairs to the camp.

That is good enough. Fatigue is not a major threat, but it is nice to get it down quick so we do not waste time sleeping.

Now we can get even more material, and make even more repairs.

AM Tasks

Al – Rest

Jacob & Yuri – Chat

Yuri has good strength and scavenging but terrible stealth, so this will make it safer to send him out to jungle event where Julia doesn't have the right skills to get the best results.

Bob – Fish

We are doing ok on hunger, so Bob is fishing alone today so that Jacob can have the day off to clear his head.

Winters & Illyana – Scavenge rope

Five rope is about the best that they could do. Rope is needed for a lot of buildings, so we will need to gather a lot of it for upkeep.

Alice & Julia – Explore (Result – 97% exploration)
At least with the update we do not need to waste an entire time period exploring that last 3%. We should be able to finish exploring two locations in the afternoon.

PM Tasks

Julia - Rest

Bob & Jacob – Chat

Yuri – Cook

We still have some leftovers, so this should be enough for today.

Al & Winters – Scavenge randomly

It is looking like scavenging randomly is a pretty good deal. We did not get quite as much material as we did when we gathered separately, but we are getting a good bit of each material. I think we will use this as our default scavenging methid for the time being.

Alice & Illyana – Explore (Result – found a military plane and some bamboo)

Illyana has been getting a lot of skillpoints from helping out around the camp, so it is no surprise that she got another level-up. Now let's see what they found.

From the looks of it, that is a P-51 Mustang Vought F4U Corsair (thanks Yvonmukluk!). They were designed to be used from aircraft carriers, but landing the craft was so difficult that they were mostly used on land by the marines.

The Russian spies are always looking for crashed American planes to steal our military technology from. Julia jumps at the chance to loot our precious piston engine technology.

I hope coffee gets better with age like wine does.

Morphine was the moss common painkiller used in WWII, and pilots were frequently given amphetamines to help them stay awake during long flights. Whatever is in the 70+ year-old drugs we found, I am sure it will mess you up good.

The guy must have had one huge canteen to save that much water.

Too bad there are no pandas here. I bet they would have tons of meat on them.

Nope. Nothing in this bamboo grove except silence and enlightenment (and bamboo).


And Jacob was beginning to act so sane. Maybe clearing his head was a bad idea.

Current Status:

Even with that skimpy meal today, we are still doing good on hunger.

Our depression is a little bit high, so we will need to take some time off for R&R soon. We do have a lot of usable items, so I might use them to get our maluses down and save us a bit of downtime.

One more jungle square explored, a dozen or so left to go.
