we come here to die
« on: March 28, 2018, 02:40:41 PM »

Day 51 on this God Forsaken planet. AI-forsaken, as well, I think.

Day 51 and 6 people have died.

I started with 3.

2 die, we get an escape pod. The new guy  refuses to do almost everything, but he does cook. eating is a good thing to do.

eventually we get our 3rd. Then the plague hits. The only person not affected refuses to do any doctoring. Or hauling (away dead bodies)

so, 2 more die.

another escape pod.

we now have 2 people and both refuse to social so we can't buy medicine from trading caravans. no one is skilled enough to make any.

more raids and random acts of death.
I forget who has come and gone.

I am down to 1 colonist (the one who refuses to do any doctor) and 2 corpses in her living area (because she also refuses to haul)

I thought about quitting and starting over a few deaths back, but I want to see how long the AI will send us escape pods just to kill them off again.

I am playing Casandra, Some Challenge, no mods

My almost-useless surviving colonist does have an elephant, untrained. The Trainer died right after she tamed it.

Cass has been on her own for about a week now. She has fended of a raider. She cooks and hunts and constructs. She does everything except doctoring and hauling and being a warden. (wardening)

But her skill is too low to fix the cooler, or the stove- so she kills just what she needs& eats raw meat.

I suggested she make a campfire to cook over- but her skill is too low for that.

She's enjoying living on her own, for the most part.


Then the mad boomalope attacked. She is on the ground in need of rescue. There is no one to rescue her. There is no one to tend to her 4 infections. There is no one to bring her food.

she might die.
alone.

Karma for refusing to tend to her sick colonist friends.

Wait, here comes a refugee! Lumi! Lumi grabbed a riffle, shot her attacker, rescued Cass, then Cass died from her wounds that were left untreated too long. Lumi will now have to bury 3 people and see what she can make of the colony on her own

That's brutal man. I'll admit, I would have given up long before it got this far!

Day #73

Lumi the hunter has replaced Cass the passive killer of colonists.
Lumi has been holding her own. One day she hunts, the next she cooks, the next she plants seds and builds walls.
She's working on taming an Alpaca.

She has defeated 2 separate raids.

Russel joined the colony. She was pretty good at cooking and could doctor as well.

Sadly, she was attacked by a timberwolf. Lumi ran to help, but was to late.

Day 73- down to one colonist.

again

Good story. Play the sea ice challenges if you havent, I think you might enjoy them.

I am super new to this- well, 3 months playing and no time to look into anything besides the basic 'play what's on the screen'. no mods or anything. I have only seen Pirate Gang. (which I like). How do I get the sea ice challenge?

Man, you are a tough one. I play this for (maybe) years now and would have quit way before that. Nice job! Amazing story too! Sea Ice Challenge is what the most badasses like to try in order to die horribly. Basically, start a colony on the "Sea Ice" biome that is usually located on the northern pole of the planets. No trees, no animals, and under-zero temperatures all the time. Really tough shit

Ah, I think my son played that. He killed & ate all the trade caravans that came through.
 I might give it a go.
