Josh Hay (Mr. Puff)
Dann Tuggles aka Dizzre
Bell manages to salvage some delicious barnacles that have been all the rage on initial island, before much to his surprise, The Awesome Squad ship showed up and picked him. Bell was now happily a member of The Awesome Squad.
RedSunEternal gobbles down a piece of candy while he pushed through the dense forest into the sides of mountain hidden inside of it. Though he mostly found rock, he figured building a rock place to nest the flames of his forge wouldn’t be a bad idea, and he gathered [15 rock] for which to work on his forge. He also noted that all the rummaging made him feel like he had a bit more [strength]. While picking up pieces of wood and sticks for later forming a trap, Miltank manages to find a suitable place to quickly make into a [shelter], on the opposite side of the island from RedSunEternal. The thickness of the ring of trees proved useful to both of them in shelter.
Meanwhile, Ryu89 managed to barely fight through to the top of the mountain, improving his [health] a bit. Once at the top, he looked down into the mountain, which appeared completely hollow at the top, as if this mountain might once have been a volcano. Not exactly sure of what dangers were in store, Ryu89 took a deep breath as he plunged into its caverns. Inside of the cavern, there appeared to be a mysterious old door, but it was completely blocked off. In the room were two rocks and four pressure plates on the ground in the up, right, left and down parts of the room, and it got Ryu89 to thinking that maybe… this was a [puzzle].
LooseLips finishes up his fancy boat, equipped with fancy sails and a fancy automatic fishing net. While this takes all day, he feels that he will greatly benefit from this in the long run – the plan was in motion.
Anthcul158’s hatred for not having a piece of gum swelled, filling her with the fervor to quickly carve up [30 arrows]. Without a bow, these arrows weren’t quite as useful, but she had a feeling that if need be she might be able to turn them into 30 one-time daggers. As Dann Tuggles didn’t seem to confirm or deny Vaclav’s offer to work on bedding if he may eloquently bum at his place, Vaclav went to offer anthcul158 a piece of gum, stating sincerely that it wasn’t an intentional withholding of gum, simply a coincidental one. Vaclav then proceeds to focus entirely on the bandoneón, and focusing on the beauty of music, starts carving a rock. WAIT NO THIS IS STUPID – the anology was beautiful but Vaclav wasn’t quite sure why a rock would ever be a good starting point. The rest of the day was spent weaving reeds into woven patterns, collecting and ornately decorating bits of wood dyed with reddish berries, and baking mud in the sun presumably as a paste or something to hold it all together. Progress was made, but as stated, one does not rush a bandoneón.
Dann Tuggles makes a quick shelter before turning his attention instead towards fixing up his boomerang. Though his methods are pretty crummy, the vaguely fixed boomerang felt like half of the time he threw it, it’d come back to him, and half of the time it’d break into two pieces and hit two different targets. He even spent some time messing around with it, improving his [combat]. Captainawesome managed to work on his particular brand of shovel-play, improving his [combat] while improving his raft enough that it should work over multiple uses.
Hawkers89 and Mike Burns spent the day eating barnacles, for their [health], and playing hide-and-go-grab-ass, improving their [agility]. I’d go into more detail, but I doubt you want to hear details about how Hawkers liked to put himself in holes or how Mike Burns was grabbing wood. Wanting nothing to do with them, Unfinished Destiny noted the areas on the map that Rayner had previously seen, and that were noted on the new map provided by the King! Shocking himself seemed to, at the very least, improve his [health] or at least how much pain he could take, thought he wasn’t quite sure if was helping him develop any electrical generating powers.
From the island of the creepy bodies, Shelly saw Bell leave and decided it was time to head east. Her [animal companionship] improved as she spent some time with the kitten, but she also wondered if the poor thing might also just be hungry? Once she arrived in the east, she figured it’d be best to find it some food.
Nega-Jim found himself with a bit more [strength], on the island to the south of where he had started.
LeoCrow first looks for a really choice stone for crafting an axe, noting quality over time restrictions. This would be an axe people would remember, assuming he ever interacted with anyone and wasn’t instead on a completely separate island. The black water was pretty easily identified as ink, though he wasn’t entirely sure why there would be a well of ink in the middle of the island. Finally, he walked over and checked out the stone pillar, which turned out to be completely uncool and non-interactive. Bummer.
