Sewfancy, Lost Pages is a long one. Good for you! Just don't overdo it. We, and the DQs, are slowly getting there

I'm really feeling fatigued. Trina has kept me busy the past 2 days. I actually like doing her quests more than I like doing the DQ's, but trying to get her to want what the gnomes want isn't fun.

I guess she's forcing you to gather airship items so you have them when she wants airships?

You've got all the time in the world. So if you have to send a DQ airship without her it's ok. Please don't over work yourself as you well know you can get burned out quickly.

Though I'm not one to talk. I'm working like crazy to get the pink boxes. I'm probably pushing harder than I need to because I'm so close. I've got a momentum going and hate to break it.

Game #2 just got an airship. Only 210 wheels.

But I don't want to do Record Keeper.

Maybe I should let Trina decide? Right now she has me doing HOS.

I still need shard in that game to reach Magic Miser. I'm sitting here thinking "Which HOS can I play that will give me stuff that I don't want?" Got upset when I got a shard instead of a Harpy Feather and had to remind myself that the game saved me the trouble of converting that Harpy Feather into a shard! Brain is turning to mush.

Back to Helping hand DONE takes a long time when around workhours

Strange papers are next. DONE that was a one hour job

O.g.r.e 13 DONE

I like Trinas quest, when she have me do something.. I do the blue key quests for 20 ZZ, and I like, that they take me all over the place.

I hope we some day will get some new DQ's using the new areas.

While I would like some new DQ's, I'm afraid of what they might contain. Getting new ones that we don't want to do (Like Three Days) could mean more days when we don't complete any.

I wound up doing Record Keeper. I was leaving it up to Trina and she gave me ZZ quest. Since Record Keeper is Zoom Zone City, I figured that was I sign I was meant to play it.

So I played it up to the airship, only needed 2 more ZZ's to finish Trina, and voila! Trina asks for wheels. And more ZZ's.

Airship just returned, and it's a good one, so I'll be doing Something New.

Good day for me. Got Gnome Spy last night so I started it, then used an amulet this morning after opening scenes and reaching part 4. Followed by Legendary Scroll, Rare Editions, Something New (amulet was done) and finishing up the day with Ogre 13.

Probably restocking airship items for days now, but I was glad to see some 10 parters.

Congratulations on your accomplishment today . That's a workout .

I would always I run an amulet on Gnome Spy. It seems that every time I did it was always followed by Something New and What's Going On (or Rare Editions) with the time remaining. Two DQ's that are good on their own and don't need an amulet to complete them .

I ended up spending loads of diamonds (60 diamonds one time) to reopen the dice table or call back airships when running the amulet on Gnome Spy. I now just spend a few diamonds on Gnome Spy to knock off a little time and it may be the only DQ I get done that day. I'm ok with that. It's a good day to restock on airships and still get a DQ done. I'm now saving my amulets for a rainy day or emergency.

Well, I guess I should be happy I didn't get Another Potion. Whether I do either of these two (Helping Hand and Inspiration) will depend on whether I get an airship too good to pass up.

ETA: well, nothing got done today.

Nearly made a big mistake. Got a 216 wheel airship and ALMOST packed it before I remembered that Inspiration needs 220 wheels. Looking like I won't complete and DQ's today.

I did get my inventory all straightened out. Have just 275 items on the first tab. Other than the blue keys, Trina keys, crystal ball, wand, lightning flash, and lunar eclipse, all that remains are things that open zoom zones. It's nice not having to scroll through a lot of pages to see everything.

Neither my Castle nor forum would load last night so started an almost finished with Special Interest this morning. Airship inventory is building slowly, and well balanced so I like that.

TiramaSue, did you keep ZZ items for ALL areas? Or just DQ ZZs? or just the Castle area? I was going to shard all other ZZ items (besides the Castle) down to 6 to have on hand for Trina. At least until I have the Magic Miser Achievement.

I kept for all areas. I felt I needed them for Trina (lately she's obsessed with ZZ's) and for Castle Challenges.

Don't worry. Nobody here will think you are bragging. We all periodically post our totals. It helps us to see that over all we are making progress even though there are days when it feels we've been standing still.
