Story Post: This Week’s Quest

I am giving a free Guess and revealing the exact number of letters that appear in the Theme to the person who crashes into the most enemies starting from now and until Tuesday is over (according to UTC time). Whenever you make someone crash successfully, please make a comment here so that tallying is easier.  After Tuesday is over, no new crashes will be counted. The Member who successfully crashed into the most enemies gets the prize. If two people are tied, I’ll pick one randomly.

This test is obviously harder, because you will have to micro-manage several rules in order to maximize your probabilities for crashing, and even then there is always a random factor involved. Also be sure to check out the new Enhancements provided by recipes: there might be something there to help you.

Just hit you, arth.

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 09:05:43 UTC

I has smashed Gnauga too, thanks to turbo.

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 09:10:21 UTC

I got Wooden Squid.

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 09:10:36 UTC

And Gnauga again. Out of fuel.

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 09:12:07 UTC

Might want to smash me. I’ve got 6 guesses and am due to get 1 back for mislead guessing, LOL.

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 09:31:59 UTC

I’ll bet that Clucky wins this, because he has enough money and fuel to do lots of crashing. Wait… Can we give credits to other members? because I will give up to 21 credits to Rodlen in order to allow him to buy the Toyota Primus and fuel enough to get the most crashes, provided that he makes the hint public.

Rodlen:

02-02-2009 15:47:16 UTC

I definitely would make the hint public.

Amnistar:

02-02-2009 18:05:45 UTC

Giving credits you can’t do.  But you can buy food from another person at a ridiculously high price.

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 21:02:40 UTC

Sell somthing!

Rodlen:

02-02-2009 21:04:34 UTC

Don’t have the ingredients to get any recipe.  Someone should propose a way to give away credits.

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 21:06:48 UTC

FYI, I’m not going to give you credits under any circumstance until you change your vote for the proposal to ban me or until that proposal fails.

Rodlen:

02-02-2009 21:09:13 UTC

I left the decision to Arthy.

arthexis:

02-02-2009 21:48:31 UTC

@Rodlen: I used some ingredients from those you created, so you should be able to do something with the credits I gave you. You can also clean the fridge to get some credits.

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 22:01:09 UTC

Cleaning the fridge doesn’t give credits…

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 22:11:06 UTC

Does it???

arthexis:

02-02-2009 22:20:19 UTC

Also, I announce that I am no longer gonna buy any recipe that costs more than 10 Credits, now that Recipes will probably have more uses due to enhancements.

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 22:22:19 UTC

Then I will taste my new one! Unless you want it?

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 23:40:24 UTC

I bought a new one and lowered the price!

Wakukee:

02-02-2009 23:40:37 UTC

Buy it now!

Darknight:

02-03-2009 00:01:41 UTC

HOLD IT WAK!! Crashing can only be done as a daily action.

Wakukee:

02-03-2009 00:02:14 UTC

I used turbo.

Darknight:

02-03-2009 00:04:10 UTC

oh.. my bad lol

Clucky:

02-03-2009 00:13:40 UTC

I just killed Wakukee. Like, 7 guesses worth. I also hit Cliche ^_^

Wakukee:

02-03-2009 00:19:44 UTC

And you didn’t call turbo. Nothing counts.

Darknight:

02-03-2009 00:20:42 UTC

nothing says he had to

Clucky:

02-03-2009 00:20:54 UTC

I offially turboed after the first set of dice rolls. Its not like it actually matters, as action was implied and the same thing could happen again.

*also his Rolden and Gnagua*

arthexis:

02-04-2009 17:52:45 UTC

Ok so… what was the final tally then? How many did each of you crash?

Amnistar:

02-04-2009 19:27:49 UTC

Wak - 4
Clucky appears to be 4 as well

No one else announced any hits in the chat.

Wakukee:

02-04-2009 22:20:59 UTC

Give it to Cluck. Or publicize it.

Klisz:

02-04-2009 23:13:47 UTC

I vote publicizing!

Qwazukee:

02-04-2009 23:44:15 UTC

arth said he would pick between 2 tied people randomly.

Wakukee:

02-05-2009 00:35:33 UTC

If I am picked, publicize it.

Amnistar:

02-05-2009 00:44:05 UTC

Technically, as Wak is idle, he no longer counts as a Player; making it Clucky’s win.

Qwazukee:

02-05-2009 00:49:50 UTC

Well, the first reference in the Quest says that the first “person” gets the prize; this would include Wak, as he is still a person. However, it later says that the “Member” who crashes most gets the prize; this excludes Wak, as he is no longer a member. I think that second clarification probably is enough to give Clucky the win.

Wakukee:

02-05-2009 00:53:40 UTC

I am an Idle member. Actually, it says the most enemies. Clucky only hit me. That is 1 enemy.

Qwazukee:

02-05-2009 00:58:49 UTC

Clucky did not only hit you, do you not remember how you had no ability to understand what was going on?

Wakukee:

02-05-2009 00:59:33 UTC

When he did it, didn’t he only end up hitting me?

Qwazukee:

02-05-2009 01:00:02 UTC

“For the purposes of the Ruleset, excluding Rules 1.1, 1.2 and 1.8, Idle Members of the Staff are not counted as Members of the Staff.”

Qwazukee:

02-05-2009 01:01:41 UTC

No. Read the rest of the comments on this post.

This can be considered to involve the Ruleset, as it the Ruleset that allows Members to crash into one another.

Qwazukee:

02-05-2009 01:02:32 UTC

Make that, “as it is the Ruleset.”

Wakukee:

02-05-2009 01:06:08 UTC

But then he redid it and hit only me. Right? Whatever. I’m idle.
