I agree and think that posting progress keeps me motivated especially when I don't really want to put in the time to do the rounds. And encouraging to see what others are able to accomplish. And never any pressure. A great group!!!

Finished New Knowledge, Another Potion and Ancient Picture. I didn't mind sending airships because we should recoup them with tonight's CC. Take breaks everyone!

Daily Progress 9/8/17 -- 9/9/17

Inspiration 5 part
Helpful Device 5 part
Ancient Picture 5 part
Experiment 3 part
New Knowledge 10 part
Helping Hand 5 part
Secrete Delivery 10 part
Rare Editions 10 part

Was working on Helping Hand before I went to bed last night. Sadly after sending the airship empty 5 times, I could not get an airship with at least the 240 that I needed. So I gave up. When I came back to game in the morning, the airship was waiting with exactly 240. Really hurts to have to send away low airships since they are so rare. They seem to be more common when the DQ wants a higher amount.

My diamonds will outlast my resources on being able to do so many DQs in one day, sadly. My airship supply is now below my comfort zone. Although I can slow the depletion, I can't stop it at the rate I'm going. So I suspect that in a few weeks, I will then be forced to slow down. I have a set minimum I won't go below so that I don't have issues with cc & events. Oh well, I'm giving it my best shot.

Today's progress September 8/9

Ancient Picture
In the Service of the Record Keeper (used amulet)
Three Days of Castle Explorer
Rare Editions

Finished 2 Trina quests
Castle Challenge done (100 HOS'S)

Hoping everyone in Irma's path stays safe...hugs and prayers from Missouri.

And I so wish that the MC powers that be could extend this CC by changing the end date. The fall event is a few weeks away. So an extension would not mess things up. I know this is probably wishful thinking...but everyone needs a dream.

Day 1

Sigh, DQ'ing is over until reset, and only 3 hours into it. Arrrg, just below my comfort level on airship items. I'm sooo tempted, and so sad to be done so quickly.

I hope your Shih Tzu (name ?) is doing ok .

Still praying for your safety. While Irma is more toward the east the entire state of Florida is in significant danger from many different threats. The entire state of FL is expected to lose power. We will still be here eagerly waiting to hear that you are ok when it's all over. Boy oh boy is this a large slow moving storm.

TS, I've been glued to the news watching the progression of the storm. Am so worried for everyone who remained in their homes. Please be as safe as humanly possible. Thinking of you.

Today's progress September 9/10

Studying Luck done
3 Days of the Castle Explorer pass (did it yesterday)

Finished CC (tried for silver chests successful 3 out of 5) got 15 shards which is what I was trying for.

I thought I posted this early this morning. Not sure why it didn't work. Anyway, TiramaSue I hope you are OK. My thoughts are with you.

Castle Date Sept 11

Game 1:
OGRE 13
Studying Luck
Helpful Device


Game 2:
New Knowledge
In the Service of the Record Keeper (pass)

CC task #23: Both games - Done.


Ok weird thing happened on game 1. I decided to skip Gnome Spy (yesterday's DQ). So I only went into the game a couple times to play puzzles today.

I logged on 15 minutes before GMT. My DQ was no longer Gnome Spy but OGRE 13 instead AND the timer was counting down from 24:15:00 (i.e. 24 hours and 15 minutes left to finish quest? 15 minutes later when the timer reaches 24:00:00 and the new day and new CC task is unlocked the DQ was still OGRE 13 (it didn't change at time change). Bizarre.

Daily Progress 9/10/17 to 9/11/17

Special Interest 3 part
Experiment 3 part (still trying for a DQ wanting an airship)
Knowledge Hunter 5 part (got cc done with this, but no airship)
Competition 3 part
Inspiration 5 part
Day 1 -- Pass

Trying to use some diamonds to rush Special Interest through. I have an airship that only wants 210 wheels that will expire before I wake up in the morning, so I'm hoping the next DQ wants it.

Edit: Finally got an airship, and it wants 220, and I packed 2 crates before I realized what I was doing

Wasted a lot of times to push DQs for my 210 airship, only to send it by mistake, and then end with Day 1.
