Dann Tuggles aka Dizzre
Knave explores the island, noting that the island is mostly made up of three patches of forest, all pointing inwards. There are several small tide pools, and a sandbar that extended far enough to potentially reach another island, and one of the sides of the sandbar dropped pretty suddenly, making it presumably a great spot for fishing. Also, you have explored the island and earned the [right to name it].
In preparation for their adventures to come, a good portion of everyone else spent their day building, or working towards some sort of crafting goal. RedSunEternal scarfed down his candy and finished his crude [forge] that he had gathered rocks for. It wasn’t pretty, but it would forge. Somehow during the process, RedSunEternal felt his [strength] increase. Mike Burns decided to tie up leaves with reeds so that they would funnel the coming rain water, and tried to line a hole with rocks and bark to collect it all. Hawkers89 sharpened his [shovel], and tested it out by slicing his bread. As he did, some stray crumbs caught his eye and he swiped them quickly – 5 second rule – so as not to waste them. It seemed that the crumbs were addicting, and before he had realized it, Hawkers89 had eaten all of his bread. It was alright though, he used the new-found energy to continue sharpening his shovel even further.
LeoCrow finished his really nice [axe], but it took so much of his day that he only had enough time to cut down a lesser-profanity-amount of them, getting about [10 wood] from a bitchton of trees. He also notes that the pillar does not look natural, as it contains small marks of tools that have mostly weathered away over time. LooseLips finished his box and started collecting [salt], as well as sharpening a rock to use as a crude [dagger]. Knave eats his bread and finishes a large [fishing net] while patching up his shelter a bit. Vaclav masterfully finishes an [exquisite bandoneón]. Now equipped with the power of music, Vaclav felt absolutely unstoppable – or at the very least, entertaining. Vaclav also worked towards some crude beds, but didn’t have the most time after spending all day focusing on the vastly superior [exquisite bandoneón]. Miltank quickly finishes a quiver and gathers [rocks] with which to make a forge the next day. Dann Tuggles mostly just found a [stick] (a nice one though).
While Dann Tuggles did spend some time hunting as well, he couldn’t comfortably use his weapon without fear of it breaking. He didn’t effectively hunt anything, but he did get a touch better at [combat].
captainawesome and Unfinished Destiny both rush down the sloping sandbar at the exact same time, reaching a strange stone room with a mysterious old door. In front of the door were four pedestals, and on the floor in front of them were three statues. When placing the statues on the pedestal, sometimes they sat normally and sometimes the faces of the statues slid down, as if to look afraid – but regardless, you felt a small part of your life essence being drawn into the placement. You figure the goal is to probably put the statues in the right order on the first try because of the strange feeling you’re getting, but what order was the right order?
The statues are of a lynx, a mammoth , a jackal and a chinchilla. You also note that the second pedestal is the only one large enough to fit the mammoth on.
As Ryu89 drops a rock on the first pressure plate, he hears some grinding noises from the door. Taking this as a good sign, he then puts a rock on the second plate, which results in a ton of tiny darts flying out of the wall. Thankfully, his agility allows him to nimbly dodge the darts. Deciding that was a decoy, he then moves the rock onto another plate. This time, the plate spring loads the rock right back into him, and he isn’t strong enough to fight its momentum. The weight of the rock crushing him causes him to become [injured], but he fights through it and puts the rock on the last pressure plate, which opens the door. Inside, you find a [utility wish pouch], a pouch said to contain a tool related to the one word you think of while opening it.
While most people are building, anthcul158 works on finding shelter under a nearby tree, making sure to bring some brush along. Most of the day is spent tying tree branches together of a tree with a convenient hole in its side, turning it into a [shelter]. No rain was going to ruin her day!
The cat didn’t seem to understand the word eat. Staring at Shelly, the cat walked up to her foot, back turned towards the pool of water, and it pawed at her foot while looking up at her.
The cat’s tail grazed the surface of the water and the cat spun around suddenly, staring into the pool of water as its tail dripped on Shelly’s foot. The cat wasn’t quite sure what to make of the pool of water, but it did try and paw at its own reflection, the cold splash startling it and causing it to run behind Shelly.
