Hello, I am Conzy!

I started to play Cities in between tasks or when I had to wait for a computation anyway, but I am afraid that the game is very addictive.

Already I have a bad history of MUDding addictions, so this was just what this poor soul needed, ... The food in the fridge starts to turn green, my hamster has left me and my index finger is grown attached to the left mous button. When my AP is down to 0 (always, duh), my heartbeat stops for the following 9 8 minutes.

More confessions

Current Quest

I have finished the Gauntlet some time ago and hope to join the Bomb Squad as soon as possible.

The Cattle Drive makes me curious :-) I'll try at 14E 3N as soon as possible. Muu!

My first attempt gave me 5000 GP: two cows in less than 30 AP. To be honest, I had fun, this might become a new addiction, haha :-)
Well, I succeeded to get four cows in place, it took a lot more AP (I guess around 90) but the fun and 20000 GP made it worth it!

Wish list

Here are some things which I am missing. I am always willing to trade, just take a look at my list of spare items .

  • Ingredients for many many Potions of Accuracy, my base to hit chance is only 53% 77% because of my Dragon Blood addiction. Kids, beware!
I now need 10 potions for my next hit.
I now need X (3?) sammiches for my next hit.
  • A bag (for safekeeping)
  • A bucket (plowin' the field, milkin' da cow, makes a simple man like me happy)
  • Show me the MONEY!!! Bling bling y0!

Robert Heinlein Collection

I didn't know yet, but apparently this is also a quest to be able to enchant blank talismans. Sounds neat :-) I've read them all, but these are the ones in my inventory:

  • 2 Copies of Beyond This Horizon
  • 2 Copies of Rocket Ship Galileo
  • 3 Copies of Space Cadet
  • 2 Copies of Farmer in the Sky
  • a Copy of Between Planets
  • a Copy of The Puppet Masters
  • a Copy of The Rolling Stones

  • 2 Copies of Double Star
  • 2 Copies of Time for the Stars
  • 3 Copies of Citizen of the Galaxy
  • 4 Copies of Have Space Suit - Will Travel
  • a Copy of Friday

Currently holding Caroline's bag of books, I will give it back as soon as possible. You can find me in the Memorial Library, just north of the Park Bench.

Passed the book bag to Meteu.



Terrible caffeine tolerance: now I only get 13 AP for a mug of coffee :-(

You lose a Mug of Coffee.
You gain an Empty Mug.
You feel a bit better. Damn caffeine tolerance.

Woohoo, Dragon Blood has (finally) detoxed my blood and now I get 30 AP for a mug of coffee again :-)

You lose a Mug of Coffee.
You gain an Empty Mug.
Wow, you feel great. Let's go!

Of course, as I am a coffee addict in "real life" as well, I can't resist a good mug from time to time in Cities eather... So within a week I just gain 13 AP for a mug of coffee :-(

Let's kill some dragons and hope for detoxication!

Ok, I learned my lesson... Conzy 15:46, 28 September 2006 (BST)

You lose a Can of Red Bull.
Argh. Caffeine crash!

Which costs me 50 AP...

Also, drinking dragon blood is not something I will do again in the near future. Now (I drunk 63 units of Dragon blood) I get a "you feel clumsy" way too often, causing my base to hit chance to fall to 50%. Thanks to Macksting and TerrorRemedy, I could make my first Potion of Accuracy, so at least it is 53% now. Somebody has some Crushed Plums, Empty Vials or Seaweed Fronds that I can use?


It is by will alone I set my mind in motion
It is by the juice of saphoo
The thoughts aquire speed
The lips aquire stains
The stains become a warning
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion
You lose 4 Grams of Spice.
You gain 260 AP.
Now using Fists.


  1. 23nd of NivĂ´se, 4 grams for 260 AP

Thanks to

The following people -among others of course- have really helped me out during my life as Sir Conzy:

  • Sertularian, one of the most honourable and selfless Dukes I have met. I bow to Thee (although the prices of your Hard Knocks store might be a little bit lower ;-)).
  • Hendsch and TerrorRemedy for the fish trading.
  • Palindrome, Alanda and Fun Assassin for the plums (fruit is healthy!)

Thank you guys for helping out this small shrimp, I hope to grow bigger and be of better use to all of you :-)

The Blues

(has put a big smile on my face the whole day ;-))

I got a fishy!

Today, Pontefract, 13th of Germinal, I got a fishy! I still had a present left and was just too curious to leave it :-)

Jumps around in ecstatic joy, waving his arms around and shouting to all who want or don't want to hear it: I got a fishy, I got a fishy!
