Caution! Work in Progress


Welcome Message

Feel free to Palantir me if you're looking for items/information/etc. I enjoy taking the occasional trip across the desert, and am willing to summon folks to Brighthelm (or Bentnob, if I happen to be there) for a nominal transit fee. Also willing to purchase/sell items in those locations, cash upfront. I am always willing to buy books (3,000 gold per Heinlein book).

Even though I am a Fire Player, I have a good deal of spare bread, plums, and cucumbers. As well as a ton of garlic - comes of being a Triffid, Gnu, and Bull hunter, really ...

Go ahead, see my inventory (be sure to login): [1]

Game: Finished L5 Hard Knocks. Heading to Brighthelm, then Bentnob, then Bombadier's Island. A B Trifecta!

Wiki: I'm prettying up this page and cutting out the useless bits. Also adding some notes I have on game information.

You are hot.
You dig.
You find a magic apple!
You place it on the ground and wait.
After a while a Penguin wonders into view. It ignores you totally and eats some of the apple. A noise startles you and you look behind you. When you look back both apple and creature have gone.
Thinking back, you remember your mother telling you that you were born under the sign of the  Penguin!
You lose a Magic Compass.
Now using Fists.
