Day 1 comments:

I've never run a NP run before. I was using my WotSF template for this run. Daily goals were: level 6, bartender, chef, meat maid.

I was able to get the meat maid and level 6, but I had terrible luck with the chef's hat (never dropped), and in the end a bartender seemed more appropriate (since I already had the hot dogs, Ur-Donut, and Tasty Tarts from my planned SR).

The day was chaos. It was my first time using an astral belt, and it made things much more difficult than I imagine. Most of my turns were spent just simply trying to survive & accomplish as much as possible while doing so. MP regulation became a massive problem because I didn't get a chef's hat, and I constantly needed heals. In the end, I had to use a Ghuol Whelp just for the MP regen (I blew thousands of meat on Doc Galactik).

Most of my day was spent just doing Council quests and item hunting for the bartender-in-a-box & meat maid. Also, I like to do the digital key before I get too high level. I didn't touch the daily dungeon today because I quickly ran out of hot-tub turns & MP was such an issue for healing...

I will make an earnest attempt to comment on my logs as I'm running them from now on. Day 1 was total chaos. I don't feel good about my progress, I was really hoping to get liver (though I've never done day 1 liver), but the Friars quest just ended up being too hard to do with the belt (and even taking the belt off I was struggling).

Day 2 goals: Chef-in-a-box, desert beach, Mysterious Island of Mystery, Hippy outfit, Liver of Steel, Level 8 (or 9).

If I remember correctly, the astral belt gives you +5 stats. So if you have a 25 lb volley-type (which you do have - studded leather boxer shorts from the Armoury on your scarecrow is a 30 lb volley!), then it's best to just take off your belt momentarily and replace the whelp with a volley until you can handle the ML again.

Astral belt is probably fairly ambitious for your skill level.

Did you use runaways somewhere? I can't tell the way you logged it.

In general, going for a bartender is a bad idea, in turns of turns saved, especially without Olfaction. Chef is usually the way to go, especially if you are planning on making reagent pastas. You got pretty lucky w/lens drops, though. You generally want to put off doing the stuff for the Spooky Temple until you set the song, if possible. I think you could've survived the billiards room long before you went there. You could've also moved up pixels during those times you went to the spooky forest.

What skills are you planning to buy in-run?

Lrdwhyt: Astral belt is +10% to stats, which is great! But at a very low level (and low skilled), the +20ML kind of sucks.

I run my Xeno for stats, but yes, I could also run my scarecrow... Maybe I should consider that for tomorrow, but I'd need to verify the weight. Wiki says studded boxers on the scarecrow is a max familiar weight of 5? So its like a 20lb volley, no?

top1214: Everything you suggested might be correct. I do think I could have moved up 8-bit, I wasn't having a hard time in there; and billiard room, the same. In the future, I think I may take your advice on waiting for the temple. Pantry & 8-bit can be done before I think about the Temple.

I typically do not remember to use free runaways - if I did use one, I will say "Runaway" and repeat the adventure number on the following adventure (see adventure 182).

Even though it costs adventures to make advanced cocktails, you wouldn't make a bartender? I'm just in the habit of it...

Runaways w/the boots is pretty easy (compared to say the bander). Am I in a really low level with an available runaway and is this a monster I don;t want? Runaway! (You can use this in conjunction w/stomping to get a preferred paste if you'd like).

RIght, so the tender saves statless crafting turns. Let's say you're doing a 6 day run and making 3 ACs every day. That's 18 turns saved right there!

But.

To get 2 beer lenses requires adventuring in the brawl. This is an area w/really low ML. If you are running a fairy, and have 100% item drop, you expect it to take something like 20 turns to farm the lenses (1/5 monsters will be the right one, and the lenses will drop 50% of the time). Then you have to open the Fun House (something you'd do anyway in an AT run, but not necessarily any other class), get 1+box, get a skull, and get a brain. All of a sudden, your 18 saved turns becomes 40-50 turns of really low ML stuff. Stuff that doesn't advance any quests.

If you are going to make a meat maid, try and see if you can wait until after you kill the bonerdagon (hopefully day 2ish), 1 clover in the post-cyrpt cemetary will get you a skull and a brain, so you don;t have to mess w/the ruins at all. If you wait until you start the cyrpt, chances are you will have a shovel from that section of the cyrpt, saving tring to farm it in the pre-cyrpt cemetary, which as someting like 9 monsters!

I have a daily checklist I look at from time to time during my run (typically when ever I go back to look at my plan of what I should be doing after my last task). I find I have enough daily tasks to remember that I need the list to make sure I don't forget stuff, or if resources are tight I can prioritize them. If there is stuff you want to remember to do everyday you could try that.
I'm brainy for Zombiepops!

Ouch on eating a digital pie!

You only get the key back on hero pies (Sneaky Pete, Jarlsberg, Boris). Digital and star pie give back a part of their components - eating 3 star pies will generally get you enough stars and lines to make a Richard's Star Key. You most likely need 4 digital pies to make another digital key though.

Thanks :) I'm going to do one more run for this contest. I'm fairly certain I can shave 100 turns. MAYBE even get down to 5 days :)
