    Can we reproduce in this quest (not to actually show it) or are we not allowed to do that since we are the only one here

    Physically able to do that? If you had another human yeah, and villagers would count, if only for one little fact: Monika wouldn't even entertain the idea.

    [X] Village

    Okay. Let's just gather some basic resources. We have food enough for a while, and plenty more from the farm due to how fast it works. Soon we will have leather too, and eggs and feathers. Which means arrows and basic armor. Still need string though for a bow. And a fishing rod. Still, we have enough food that we can ignore it for a little while, and spend some time studying the system. Maybe there will be quests with rewards or something.

    As for the village... I can't really see Monika not going after she saw it. It's a hope spot, sadly one that will show itself just as... shallow as her former NPC friends. Shallower actually as they can't even talk... Well, the village should have carrots, beets, potatoes, and wheat available. As well as iron if there is a blacksmith. Maybe even enough to get a bucket. And villager trades can be useful. Especially in getting enchantments.

    Agreed on getting a small stockpile of resources. Will mining stone often enough allow us to find veins of iron and coal? Otherwise, burning logs for charcoal and using that for torches would be a good idea.

    What you get depends on your rolls, and the depth you reach. I'm also thinking of tweaking the rolls a bit, lower the chances of failure between 1-7, so 8 and above is success. What do you think?

    I think the DC should be tailored to the situation. Like, gathering wood from a nearby forest would be normal difficulty (DC10) But if Monika has a tree farm outside her walls it would be a DC 5, And if she has a copse of trees inside her walls and lit up by torches, it wouldn't even require a roll.
    On the other hand, getting stone from a cave would possibly be a dc 10 if she doesn't go too far in, and just gets stone, but if she starts searching for iron, it would go up to a dc 15 until she lights up a safe route.

    Just remember you can tell us the DC of certain actions before we try! That way we can do things like risk assessments!

    Village exploration luck roll: 1d20: 2 (holy shit)

    Yeah I'm tweaking the way I do rolls again, what of it. Trying to see what works best here.





    Like every morning at that point, Monika went off to gather herself some wood. She didn't get all that much unfortunately, as her wooden axe made the process much longer... and also it broke rather quickly.

    She returned home to drop off the wood. And froze, remembering a thing. Why did she keep trying to reach the mountains? She had so much stone just underneath her!

    And that's how Monika began to dig a staircase down into the bowels of the earth. Every few steps down she'd place a torch, and continue digging. mostly she gathered a bunch of stone, but there were also several coal ores and iron! Sweet, shiny iron! Sure, they weren't too many pieces, but it was a start!

    ...and also the pickaxe broke. But she had iron!

    And now that she had a decent source of food - namely bread, eggs, rice, and in the near future also other things - she could take the time to wind down a bit and finally learn more about the system. First, was the 'status' screen.

    [Name: Monika
    Rank: 3
    To next rank: 4/9
    HP: 20/20 (+1/hour)
    Armor: 0
    LV: 0


    Perk points: 0]

    "Hm... well, this seems... simple? I already know that increasing my rank gives my perks, and increasing my skills gets me more perk points. I can assume that HP means 'Health Points' or something similar. The fact that I seem to recover one per hour isn't really the best, but that still lets me go from 'almost dead' to 'hale and hearty' within a day." Her brow furrowed a tad as she examined two particular entries. "I can make a guess about armor, but LV? Wasn't that something like levels? That doesn't make any sense though: isn't 'Rank' and 'level' the same thing for me, at least in game terms?" She sighed, slumping into her chair. "I can't figure it out just yet... I suppose I'll just have to see how it changes - if it does change."

    The next thing on the list, was what the game called the 'Mobpedia'. She could guess on what that would be.

    [Chicken - Killed: 0
    Cow - Killed: 0
    Sheep - Killed: 0
    Skeleton - Killed: 0
    Zombie - Killed: 1]


    Yep, just about what she was expecting: a list of all the entities she had seen. She hadn't expected to see also the animals there, though. Still, she might as well check through all of them.

    [Chicken - Killed: 0
    Threat: 0/10
    Food: seeds
    Drops: ? (kill 1)
    Weakness: ? (kill 5)
    Resistance: ? (kill 10)
    Origin: ? (kill 25)
    ???: ? (???)]


    [Cow - Killed: 0
    Threat: 0/10
    Food: wheat
    Drops: ? (kill 1)
    Weakness: ? (kill 5)
    Resistance: ? (kill 10)
    Origin: ? (kill 25)
    ???: ? (???)]


    [Sheep - Killed: 0
    Threat: 0/10
    Food: wheat
    Drops: ? (kill 1)
    Weakness: ? (kill 5)
    Resistance: ? (kill 10)
    Origin: ? (kill 25)
    ???: ? (???)]


    [Skeleton - Killed: 0
    Threat: 7/10
    Food: none
    Drops: ? (kill 1)
    Weakness: ? (kill 5)
    Resistance: ? (kill 10)
    Origin: ? (kill 25)
    ???: ? (???)]


    [Zombie - Killed: 1
    Threat: 6/10
    Food: none
    Drops: Rotten flesh, potatoes, carrots, iron ingots.
    Weakness: ? (kill 5)
    Resistance: ? (kill 10)
    Origin: ? (kill 25)
    ???: ? (???)]


    "Alright, so just seeing something gives me a threat assessment of the thing - which I can absolutely agree with by the way - and killing more gives me more information. Makes perfect sense. And I assume that the last entry either is something I'll unlock with another achievement. Hopefully. Please don't be glitching again."

    Trying to shake those thoughts out of her mind, Monika turned over to her furnace, where the iron was finally done melting into ingots. "And now, onto the hardest choice of the day: what do I do with these?"




    The village thing is coming next update, don't worry. I'm just breaking it up here so I know what y'all want to make with the iron we found.

    We have 7 pieces of iron. Make a plan for how to use 'em.
    -[] Pickaxe (3 iron)
    -[] Axe (3 iron)
    -[] Saber (3 iron)
    -[] Bucket (3 iron)
    -[] Shield (1 iron)
    -[] Leggings (7 iron)
    -[] Helmet (5 iron)
    -[] Boots (4 iron)
    -[] Shears (2 iron)
    -[] Storage (saves up all the ingots you haven't used. This option is picked by default if you don't use all ingots.)


    If you decide not to upgrade any of the tools, Monika will default to the stone version until she gets more iron.

    -[X] Bucket (3 iron)


    A pair of shears would let us make a bed finally, and a shield is just good in general, especially since it means Monika can defend against a sudden ambush. I'm wavering on using the last bits of iron on a bucket or a pickaxe. Having a better pick would make it easier to get more underground resources, but a bucket means being able to carry water, which is also pretty damn useful.

    This was... actually the exact vote I was going to make.
    Shears for a bed, Shield for skeletons (And generally having a decent defense.) and a bucket because it's bloody useful to have.
    Shears can also get leaves, which can be useful in a few mods. The latest Ender IO actually makes leaves and tall grass a requirement to getting the normal versions of the machines... Dye to make a machine frame...

    Well, either way, useful utility. The last iron can be saved up for a pick. Really, we have enough stone to make new stone tools though, so that shouldn't be an issue.

    Don't mind me renting out a space inside your brain. I promise I'll ignore the "Homework" folder.
