Who Was That Other Guy Again?
Hello other guy, I seem to remember you being called John, and also as being the least engaging of our three so far seen heroes. But if you get down to business and sort out this alchemy lark then you may be redeemed.
Introducing the true star of Homestuck; Procrastination. I mean at least Dave’s fort had a purpose, this is just stupid and as you say A HUGE WASTE OF TIME!
Well done Rose, glad to see that there’s still someone around here able to take the logical course of action. I do wonder what all the
people imps in the kingdom below are making of all this stuff that keeps falling from the sky.
Ok, now let’s get down to work and carve some totems.
John has unlocked the achievement ‘useful shit accomplished’ Hoo-bloody-ray. And now we see the purpose of the Athenium, somewhere to keep your totems. So idiot players don’t break them all due to sylladex mishaps.
Bring on the fanfair!
He did it. John actually did something useful, ok it was mainly due to Rose’s prompting, but still…
And you can choose what to make them out of… grist which you need for building or shale. This means there’s more need to kill imps as not only do you need to build you want to make stuff too. Run you cute little critters, it’s hammer time. (Don’t look at me like that, I had too)
Dah darrr! A hammer… just like we had several pages ago… yeah, this isn’t really progress. Neither is the pogo ride. These seem to cost fixed amounts of a certain material.
Interesting. So we can have code that produces something that’s not even a proper thing, I guess that means putting random codes in isn’t much use. Still if you could extract the plant pot,
breeze block cinderblock and violin you’d be quids in.
But hey, at least you can crush imps with it.
Detect collisions… but… but that’s Dave. Did someone put a command in the wrong box?
Ok… I didn’t really understand any of that. I hope it wasn’t particularly plot relevant. Can’t see how stage magicians or card tricks would help in Sburb.
Ok, I take it all back. John you are a flipping genius. How did I not think of that? Now he can combine items I guess… the whole alchemy thing makes much more sense.
There are so many opportunities.
Why would Rose make so many hammers. Come on girl, John just had a clever thought, don’t let the team down.
OH YES!! That’s the ticket! That thing looks cool and I bet it’s better weapon than the hammer he had before. Yes yes yes! I wonder what else he will make, I mean the sky’s the limit… there are so many combinations. Though I guess there is a limit to grist.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you… our hero;
That’s right imp, be afraid, be very afraid.
Pogo rides that powerful are not suitable for children.
Another damn arm… grrrr! Now the pogo ride is upside down in a tree and you would have fallen straight through into Dad’s room if it weren’t for Rose. Well done John, whenever I start to think you have potential you just go and spoil it three pages later.
Now our hero is lying around whilst a large monster walks into his living room.
More monster! God damn it John, GET UP!
So Rose can’s carry him up to the gate, which is good because being lazy will get him nowhere and the poor girl has problems of her own. Interesting, an annoying precaution, but an understandable one the game can’t let the server do all the work.
No no no no… you idiot, don’t go to sleep now! Are you trying to die?
Nice music, brief but nice and rather relaxing… yawn
John looks so derpy just staring up at his gate like that…
Lets leave him to his little nap and catch up later.
