Yesterday while mining mithril ... it hit me .... how many of you have heard the song "99 Bottles of Beer".

Well, FT has it's own Miners Version: "79 spaces to fill". One needs and extra backpack and two pets and a pick to mine right.

79 space to fill in the bag, 79 spaces to fill.
if one of those spaces should get filled, only 78 spaces to fill!

78 space to fill in the bag, 78 spaces to fill.
if one of those spaces should get filled, only 77 spaces to fill!

... Ad nauseam

2 space to fill in the bag, 2 space to fill.
if one of those spaces should get filled, only 1 spaces to fill!

1 space to fill in the bag, 1 space to fill.
if that spaces should get filled, no more spaces to fill!

No more spaces to fill in the bag, no more spaces to fill,
Time to head home and craft the load, 79 spaces to fill.


And as my friend SellSword said: There's 50% of the game!

And on the bright side, it's a change from "Hi ho hi ho" although those are my favourites.

Now a note on the darker side, saw a glimpse of the future today, something called a TV was showing a tornado in Ottawa. OH MY!!!!! :o :cry:

Yes, sadly.
And despite the hopes of many Canadian nay-sayers, no one in Ottawa was carried off to the land of Oz.
(Not going to elaborate on that due to rules).
You called me strong, you called me weak
But still your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times I
Never let you down
You stumbled in and bumped your head, if
Not for me then you'd be dead
I picked you up and put you back
On solid ground

Hey everyone, the forum post is easier than the real-time updates! :lol:


Frequent enough tornados in my neck of the woods, so not something I'd want elsewhere... :(

@ SellSword

RE: Tornado

One went through Barrie Ontario in '85 and I was in my car driving parallel to it a mile or so away. All I saw was a "storm, and very black storm", to the right of me that was shaking the car with high winds. Later, of course, I heard it was a tornado that went directly over my house. We were in a slight depression, a shallow valley, whatever. Boy was I lucky!

HEY PEOPLE!!!!!

Read it and enjoy! Never again wonder who you are going up against.

It's like ... it's like ... ummm ... Merlin, "the FT magic guy", giving us the power to see it all.

A very good tool, that one.
And should be usable for most - Google sheets works on most androids.
I wonder... what other kind of sheets the GM could give us?

I would think Google sheets will work on all android devices. Android is Google, the greatest Information Back Hole in the whole Universe. :lol: :lol:

GM's are really busy so I would not want to burden them more.

But I have an idea "I" am going to look into.

Made more Meteor Ingots and sold them for 80m each, nice chump change. And of course the Axe of Soul is a nice profit of 61m for each one. Problem there is getting the parasited axes, 2 soul stones and then 20 carbon ingots for each. A LOT of mining. Regaining some soul stones.

Meteor Ingots are a two fold success: at 40% chance of success I "succeed at failing" a lot pushing my crafting points up a little. And then the selling of them is pure profit.

Met a young (age = level) huntress and helped her (character determines male female for me) do a few things and promised to aid again. She has not showed up since, she will.

Tried going for more swamp skins to craft 350 swamp boots, the areas I know were busy. Oh well, another day.

Maybe today I will work on more Mithril Tools, grind ... who knows ... logging in soon ...

SellSword what do I owe you three gold coins for? My forgetter kicked in!

Quite coincidentally, I was going to sell you a swamp hide for the princely sum of three gold pieces!

I'm very sorry though as I think I'm going to need to raise the price to four gold to recoup some coffee-related expenses... ;)
