A message from my pet egg, this day:
|As close to a "Death Egg" as one can expect.|
|Functional, and pretty cool looking, too. win/win.|
It's funny, you know how it says "DSPRE" in the tower? Well, add "Agony", and you have DAGONSPYRE. I just found that amusing, in a "gallows humor" kind of way.
My plot is a bit too ambitious, I think. My energy can't keep up with the vast expanse of plant needs.
|Hail a renewed day in The Spir@l|
Once that was done, I couldn't help but notice the other 2 recipes available, ones that *didn't* require any blasted sunstones, (like the Crab Claw did). Why, aside from the high cost of the recipies themselves, the reagent list was positively pleasant. A few runs through The Chancel provided all the funding I needed to etch today's progress in virtual stone.
I've really been on a "statue kick", lately, and my Pet Farming has been put on hiatus.
|"Behold, the Magic of Blossoms, in bloom"|
So, once the first 'decorative' statue was completed, I couldn't help but "complete the set", as it were. Another Chancel run, and the non-sunstone reagents were easily accquired.
I mean, really, KI, the whole "sunstone" thing is a bit out of balance, in my opinion. Not that they should necessarily be any *easier* to get, (the majority of mine get sniped at The Bazaar), but the exceptional number of items requiring sunstones (hats, boots, robes, rings, athames, statues) makes them seem a bit rarer than they should be. Even the sandstone for transmutaion is 'rare', which seem counter-intuitive to me. If you need 15x sandstone to get 1 sunstone, and a recipe calls for 10 sunstones, that's a whole lot of sandstone that "ought" be a little more available to farm. Golden Pearls are "rare", but much more accessible via transmutation with repetitive farming runs of The Portico. The rarity of sunstones, and their trans-mutational reagents factored against their demand, just seems "off", to me. I know it's not supposed to be easy, but it shouldn't be quite so farminantion-tastic, either, imo.
Anyways, sunstones are not my friend. Enough of that, we're talking cration, growth, and renewal.
Speaking of growth and renewal, Cassandra Griffindreamer *already* has the next pages (Pages 2 AND 3) for "Poison Ivy" out, and the story is growing quite nicely, by my estimation. Some proper back story, and the subtle building of tension makes me ever more curious how this drama will play out.

Anyways, hope your Day of Renewal finds you in good health, and happy.
