slaw's 2/365 SCSource log (not annotated)

The low turncount of this run is primarily a result of good RNG and the 5/day duplicate change. My plan doesn't involve anything new or innovative besides maybe the green smoke bomb duplicate+YR. If I were to do another 2 day SC run of this path, I'd probably just change my quest order slightly, pul...
