Hmm.. I did not choose a boon yet. Was actually too sick to care on Monday, but at least I did my ultra-minimal dailies (Trudy's and bank interest). After a trip to the doctor yesterday morning and buying out the pharmacy around lunchtime, I am feeling decent enough to go back to work today.

Today, I chose the Cartogriphication boon

"Day 1" - RLR - 512NP - Net 112NP - whoopie :(
Day 2 - RRR - 767NP - Running Net 479NP - Meh

Sorry to hear you are not well Blue.
I haven't been the best either. We are on opposite sides of the world, but it seems the 'sniffles' is going around.


Day 1: Light - no change.
Day 2: Earth -> Dark +3 HP (850 nps)
Day 3: Grey -> Air +3 Mov (2200 nps)
Day 4: Light - no change.
Day 5: Earth -> Light +2 Lvl (3293 nps) fixed :D
Day 6: Grey -> Battle +3 Str, +3 Def, +3 HP (190 nps) + Earth -> Dark +3 HP (1099nps)

Thanks, Daze. Sorry to hear you are also under the weather! Asthmatic bronchitis for me. It really came on suddenly, too. Went from "mild" sinus pressure (as in - when your top teeth hurt from the pressure) to crackly chest bronchitis in less than 4 days. Hooray for meds. I am back up to ~75+ today :) Could be higher, but I went back to work yesterday. Today was far too long there and it knocked me back a peg or two.

"Day 1" - RLR - 512NP - Net 112NP - whoopie
Day 2 - RRR - 767NP - Running net: 479NP - Meh
Day 3 - RLR - 1067NP - Running net: 1,146 - Still Meh

You got 3 HP from a light faerie quest?! :o

Hope you both feel better soon. It took a solid month for me to get over my cold-turned-cough-turned-the-doctor-wasn't-sure-if-it-was-allergies-or-sinus-but-either-way-it's-finally-better (except for the pulled muscle that's interfering with my ninja training - I recommend not coughing into the same elbow repeatedly when you're sick). The pulled muscle, which I think is the intercostal, is gradually getting better; I just have to be careful and not do things that overstress it (which isn't obvious - things like push-ups and hanging from the Vertical Limit tweaked it).

(I've just been editing my post with my updates, but I guess I'll make a new one tomorrow. I've only refreshed once so far.)

Edit: Or I'll just edit it into here because no one else has posted.

Cookie cracked! (Darn, now I want to go eat cookies... good thing I don't have any, since I'm about to go to bed!)

Quest 1: Fire, Sunflower Sandals, 1100 NP, +3 str
Quest 2: Soup, Large Wild Chocomato Smoothie, 650 NP (cheaper on SW than in shop!), +2 str +2 level
Quest 3: Battle, Doughnut Chalkboard, 768 NP, +3 str, +3 def, +3 HP
Quest 4: Earth (Magic Vial, 995 NP) -> Light, Ukkrah the Fire Grarrl, 2400 NP, +2 light (-1305 NP, technically no stat difference)
Quest 5: Battle, Snowbunny Pencil Sharpener, 577 NP, +3 str, +3 def, +3 HP
Quest 6: Battle again!, Sculpted Books, 2899 NP, +3 str, +3 def, +3 HP

Total: 8394 NP, +14 str, +9 def, +9 HP, +4 level (36 useful stats total, 233 NP/useful stat)

Total savings from boon: -1305 NP

Day 3: Well, if my cookie keeps going so well, I won't care if I never use the boon!

Edit Day 4: Well, I used the boon. I'd still rather get 2 guaranteed levels than a 1/3 chance of movement, even though technically I came out the same in the long run. To me, it's worth any* price difference for that certainty.

*I mean, obviously not if the price difference were tens of thousands of NP, but I don't think there are any quest cards worth that much...

Day 6: Wow! Three battle faeries?! This has already been a great cookie. Hopefully I get decent quests once the boon is gone, though...

Wow, nice quests Siniri.

I thought the same about the Earth and Grey quests. I really don't need strength, or a FFQ, so I thought I would gamble on a better faerie. 4/5 refreshes worked, so not bad at all.

I really like the Light Faerie quests, I need a few levels and the item is a collectable card, which I have in my collection. Then I can just re-buy off the SSW.

Day 1: Light - no change.
Day 2: Earth -> Dark +3 HP (850 nps)
Day 3: Grey -> Air +3 Mov (2200 nps)
Day 4: Light - no change.
Day 5: Earth -> Light +2 Lvl (3293 nps) fixed :D
Day 6: Grey -> Battle +3 Str, +3 Def, +3 HP (190 nps) + Earth -> Dark +3 HP (1099nps)
Day 7: Earth -> Soup +2 Mov, +2 HP (1300 nps)


Boon gave me
2 Lvl
3 Str
3 Def
5 Mov
11 HP

Quest 6: Battle again!, Sculpted Books, 2899 NP, +3 str, +3 def, +3 HP
Quest 7: Soup, Large Wild Chocomato Smoothie, 895 NP, +2 HP +2 movement (identical to quest 2, except more expensive than the shop, but none was stocked, so I had to pay the premium... and then I got movement instead of a useful stat)
Quest 8: Earth, Nanka bottle, 644 NP (haggled), +3 def
Quest 9: Air, Kougra Scratching Comb, 1950 NP, +3 movement
Quest 10: Water, Pteri Battle Manual, 1500 NP, +3 def

Total: 13,383 NP, +14 str, +15 def, +11 HP, +4 level, +5 movement (44 useful stats total, 304 NP/useful stat)

Total savings from boon: -1305 NP

Soup Faerie usually seems like a good quest, but of course now I kind of wish I'd refreshed. Technically I lost money from the boon this time, but considering 3 battles + 2 soup faeries, I'm definitely not complaining!

Edit Day 9: Wish I still had the boon! I could have just rejected the quest, but when it's under 2k, I figure it's not bad to occasionally train movement. It's up to 151 now.

Oh, right, new round is starting. Seekers, Thieves, and Sway. A friend needs Seekers theme, and since they have the bank boon, which is about the only thing I manage to get done on site besides Trudy and my FQ cookie (and now CC), that works for me. Are you guys game?

Re: Battleground of the Obelisk [Split 8]

Wed May 08, 2019 6:23 am

I'm game. Seekers it is.

*hops on bandwagon*

Sounds like a plan. Bandwagon ho!! :)

Alright. Joined Seekers!

Re: Battleground of the Obelisk [Split 8]

Wed May 08, 2019 3:25 pm

Joined. I have no clue if I'll get any battling in this weekend, but I'll try.

Did you remember to battle? I got 20 points for the CC from today's battles! I'm cluttering so I can declutter better... That's how this is supposed to work, right? :D

Re: Battleground of the Obelisk [Split 8]

Mon May 13, 2019 7:31 am

Seekers win! Yay!

I remembered to battle each day and got my extra CC prizes. :)

Chose Bank Bribery. It isn't a lot of extra NPs, but it is the easiest thing to get this week.

Same here, Daze! I wish there was a boon that let you visit the healing springs every five minutes, though!
