Draco Cracona's 7/597 HCO AT! Comments welcome!

Post by Draco Cracona » Sun Apr 22, 2012 8:40 pm

#86: HCO AT. The majority of this run is NOT logged well, as it's a proxy log pieced together from three machines- I'd pretty much given up when my laptop network port buggered up on day 3! 7/597, a day and turncount I am chuffed with. Feel free to comment or ask for elaboration or suggest improvements.

Exact summons not logged; I followed https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... WVSbGtQZHc for faxes/summons, with the exception of Day 7, which was two snowcones (purple and red) and a sugar sheet for some shorts, and a litterbox D3 instead of the stickers. Had 3 dragon, 3 UPC and 2 unicorn stickers by the end of D6.

As someone who wants to try Oxycore in the future, I actually find the non-mafia stuff a bit clearer. It kind of sifts out the details I don't need to know or that might distract me. Thanks, and nice job!
