Ink Slingers Autumn Psychic Challenge


Recommended Posts

Welcome back Ink Slingers!!! It's time for another challenge. Who's excited?

 

For those that wander by and are interested, this is a thread for a small group that is a part of the website 4thewords and working on a challenge together there. It's a gameified writing site, basically. Feel free to play along or make general comments about writing, but the official challenge is limited to the four participants... @annyshay, @IAmInfinite, @lucky fire dragon, @oromendur.

 

Autumn Psychic Challenge

 

Each week we collect items (both drops from monsters and things we craft). The number of items that we collect determines the order of our "guesses" for the cards that Ristret will draw. If we guess positions correctly, we gain psychic points. That's it! Let's do it!

 

Here's the breakdown of what items count for what cards.

 

smile Leaf/Paper - Leaf Boots, Leaves, Caravan Ticket, Forest Scroll, Leaf Breastplate, Leaf Helmet, Leafsung Boots, River Grass, Tico Leaves (Tico Week)

 

smile Wood - Hardwood, Leafsung Key, Leafsung Wooden Sword, Wood, Wood Hammer, Wood Spear, Wood Sword, Wooden Bow, Wooden Chest, Crossbow

 

smile Liquid - Dust Water, Di Bag, Red Dye, River Water, Coffee Bean Essence (Tico Week), Dust, Glass, Glass Necklace, Glass Scimitar, Glass Shards

 

smile Animal - Claws, Reenu Wings, Scared Feather, Feathers, Fur, Leather Roll, Lorsa Fur, Rope, Spider Bow, Spider Legs, Spider Poison, Tambo Mane, White Fur

 

smile Metal/Stone - Desert Stone, Gold, Golden Chest, Net, Old Staff, Raw Gold, Raw Steel, Raw Stone, River Stone, Rusty Amulet, Rusty Pendant, Sandstone, Steel, Steel Boots, Steel Dagger, Steel Sword, Stone, Stone Ring

 

smile Misc. - Stempo, 7 Moon Scroll, Essence, Protective Mantle, Vine Net, Teseven's Amulet, Fabric Breastplate, Raw Fabric, Fabric Shoes, Fine Fabric

Geez, getting the Lombri and Yasri isn't just getting them, it's also getting the wooden spears, and ropes, and leaf helmets, and leaf boots. And I thought I was ready to face that word count ....

Spreadsheet is view-only for me, sorry :(

 

Today's haul so far (from 1 Grult -- do you need to know monsters this time around?): 2 fur, 1 chest, 1 raw stone, 1 desert stone.

 

More later hopefully, we'll see...

Inputed my results for today - managed to bag my first Yasri!

Do we want to go random (according to whatever quests we are doing) or do we want to try and choose specific cards? 

- Because two of us are in 3pc (though this may change with Tico Week), we will be getting a decent amount of stone/metal things, and Leaf is a general for wherever. So we will probably have a similar range every week, unless we target specific creatures with specific drops. Which ... sounds like a lot of unneccesary effort imho.

I'm gonna try out using Sums in the spreadsheet (cause I got 4 fabric yesterday, and 3 more today) and I think having a way (for myself) to make sense of where the numbers are coming from is easier. (Also cause if I ever hit higher numbers i dun wanna have to do that bigger adding, and if I get it wrong it would be awkward). If you also want to, its =SUM(a,b)    which then gives you the sum of a and b.

ok, so I guess I just go for any of the items on the list? Or are there some that would be needed to catch up on?

So excited on this, and thrilled to have wifi at home again, hehe

 

You guys are rocking it already! Very cool :)

managed a few Lorsa today and am wondering where to list the feathers they dropped? Are those sacred feathers or is that something else? The 10 Dust, 6 Lorsa Fur and 6 of the 7 Moon Scrolls I have inserted into the spreadsheet already.

Anything else to do about it?

Put them under plain old "feathers". "Sacred feathers" are a different item.

ehm this might be another stupid question, but are we supposed to collect items or defeat creatures this week? So far I've just been battling my Lorsa away, but I can change tack at any time.

I going with defeating my normal monsters (towards my quests), and then keeping track of whatever items we collect. If we want though, in the future, we can try targeting specific items and 'cards' but keep at the Lorsa!

great :) 

Have had a full day in the garden so far with so many rotten apples to pick up from when we were away and sifting out the good(ish) ones, that will now need to cut and cooked into chutney and/or puree asap, so I might not have many words after that, but will do my best.

 

You guys have been amazing already again :o

Make cider!! (But that sounds so good!) We've been picking our tree over the past month, but our figs are so much better. (And so good!)
