Cooperation discussion

Celane, Stevie-O and I were talking, and for three players (Earth - Stevie-O, Air - you, and Water - me) to make three sets of sandwiches is even more efficient (158-167 AP per character). We were considering starting to do so Tuesday evening EST (around midnight GMT). Does that work for you? -- BlaisedeC 05:26, 11 March 2006 (GMT)

All righties; I'm at the Dragon Pass at the moment and am waiting for enough AP to do the growing on a nearby Hillside. I've got 10 beans; given the probability on plums that *ought* to do it. I've also got 2 Bits of Molten Glass I'll go ahead and blow into Jars for you guys (and, for that matter, I already have an Empty Vial as well for the salad dressing, so no worries there). How are we going to handle the race condition losing-things-at-trading-posts bug? *clip contact info* if we need to chat off-site.Celane 10:55, 12 March 2006 (GMT)
Kudos to you guys for teaming up on this. In my experience, things get lost at trading posts when your character does something _while_ another character is giving you something. Speaking counts. For example, if you were to "say" in the game, "I'm ready for the sandwiches now" WHILE someone was giving them to you, they _could_ be lost. This has only happened to me once. Best way to avoid it, I believe, is for the recipient to do NOTHING in the game until you are sure the trade is done. Communicating outside the game is an excellent idead. Good luck! Celane, please note, I am signing my post. -- Sertularian 14:24, 12 March 2006 (GMT)
Yeah, we really don't want to lose any produce on this one. And re: comment signing: Oh, so THAT's why you gave me that kudo that one time.  ;) Celane 19:36, 12 March 2006 (GMT)
After talking to Stevie-O on IRC, let's all sign onto and use #sarnies for our discussion (no need to bother the folks in #cities). -- BlaisedeC 06:42, 14 March 2006 (GMT)
OK, I'll get to a Trading Post near normal terrain and summon you. Then you can use that summon stone to summon Stevie-O, and we'll get to work. I'll also update the Beans Table to reflect that Heaths can't grow beans. -- BlaisedeC 05:39, 14 March 2006 (GMT)
We don't need that last Basket of Plums after all -- we lucked out. Stevie-O was at the Southern Market just as a Basket was available for 100 GP! I'll summon you tomorrow evening/tonight at 7:00 PM EST (midnight Wednesday morning game time). -- BlaisedeC 06:23, 14 March 2006 (GMT)

The Task Table

Now for the nitty-gritty... here's the table I worked up. It's been revised to include making or acquiring what's necessary for the Treasure Hunt and the APs for passing ingredients back and forth; it's also been adjusted so that I (who have the least AP available) can finish my part by 1AM.
