Both Trina's are driving me crazy. All they want is HOS and ZZ's. Why can't they want these things when I get a crummy DQ?

No, when I have no DQ to work on, the two Trina's want wheels. As soon as I get a DQ needing airships, she behaves as if she's never heard of airships.

Not a happy camper today. Three days in a row starting with A 10 part DQ. Today starts with Something New/rusty chest. May tackle tomorrow(after dice table recharges) but may just play for inventory.

I'm with you Bapple. Got Robbery. But only 1 airship, and dice were open so I'll just take my time and buildup air supplies during wait times.

Game 1:
Special Interest
Helping Hand (pass - don't trust the weather today)


Game 2:
New Knowledge
Robbery of the Century (pass - don't trust weather and late to get started)


More thunderstorms forecasted to come in during the week - Monday/Tuesday through Thursday. DQ's will be iffy during those days. What I get done will depend on the DQ's I get first thing at time rollover.

If it was just rain like today it would be fine. But around here Thunderstorms are dangerous and unpredictable. I hate having to work DQ's around "possible" thunderstorms when the forecast has many times been wrong. . I won't do a DQ unless I know I can finish it and claim the credit for completing it.

Another day spent trying to get an airship that was 'just right'. Thinking of changing my game name to Goldilocks.

Some days are Trina, some days are gnomes
Sometimes you log on and find the airship has flown
Sometimes you post just to moan and to groan
Some days are diamonds, some days are stones

Castle Date Aug 14

Game 1:
Helpful Device
In the Service of the Record Keeper (pass)


Game 2:
New Knowledge (same as yesterday)
Lost Pages (pass - not sending a 240 airship for a 3 part. Would take 2 airships for game 2 because my airships are averaging 180 each x 2 = 360 - so... nope)

My internet service provider has been spotty at best today. Can't even get through a round of gifting without being kicked out of the game. Can hardly get on the forum without waiting endlessly for it to load.

Every time my ISP gets like this it's almost a guarantee outage in the near future. Outages from my provider can last up to two days. I hope it doesn't go out. Going to try and get the DQ's done if I can.

If I disappear from the forum for a day or two you'll know why.

Cheerful little soul aren't you?!
Is this what life is now all about?
The endless "grinding" away at this most thankless of tasks until we have two rather ugly little avatars in our closets?

But I have found a way to escape from all this!

I have put MC on my cell phone and have begun again.
The one small problem is that I cannot see most of the action as it is too small (I am not up to date with a 8/9/10 inch screen cell phone)
But in one week of eyes shedding tears like miniature waterfalls I have reached the dizzy height of Level 14 from scratch.
Has this made me any more happier?
You should all try it sometimes to find out!
But I will say that I now have the most profound respect for all those of you iOS players doing any morphing challenges on this little device!!!

Rare Edition, What's Going On, Experiment and What's Going On again. Stopping short at the first airship here since Trina wants her ZZ/HOS quota. If she changes her quests later I may finish WGO for a second time.

I've got 2 level 76 games, which is more than enough. When I want to get away from Trina and the gnomes, I do something other than play MC.

I had hoped that by now we'd be in the midst of another castle challenge, or that we would have completed a mini-event. Maybe that 'update' was to stop a CC or ME from starting.

Oops, I did it again.

Got so excited to wake up and see a good airship waiting for me, that all I did was check that it was enough wheels for the DQ and sent it off without checking Trina. She's asking for HOS.

I have returned to the MC fold brimming with useless ideas and suggestions to improve our game play.
But when I read through this thread and compare notes with you dedicated aficionados I realize I am only a mere beginner.
But many of you seem to need either a prod up the rear end or other forms of encouragement to persist in this chore.
As I am the self-designated Chief Sweeper Upper of the Castle I have noticed in my tasks a rather large cache of medals located in the Grand Altar returned HOS Repository.
I propose that these should be inscribed and doled out to those of you who pass the following simple test:

ONE computer game playing DQs for six hours >- a Bronze Medal
TWO or MORE computer games playing for a total of ten hours >- a Silver Medal
Achieving 10 or more DQs in one 24 hour period >- a Gold Medal

Additional bars may be given for each subsequent success!

Any takers and I will begin to inscribe them?

[I have reserved a silk-lined casket for"you-know-who" in this motley collection of players to place her medals in!]

Can't rain on my parade

I want my Gold Medal. You didn't say all 10 had to be on one game.

Game 2: Knowledge Hunter / Robbery of the Century / Lost Pages (can't get done with only 35 min to GMT)


Why do I do it? Well...

I actually like the avatars - but that's not the reason
I like having something to do in the game that has a purpose - partly the reason
I like challenging myself - mainly the reason

It's not about the DQ's or the Avatars. It's about personal challenges that are tough. It's about overcoming difficulties and adapting and adjusting for sudden changes. In the end it's personal satisfaction and that you are strong and tenacious. And so much more.

Edited to add:
I know that casket you mentioned isn't for me. You better start building me one too. I need a box for my medals.
