Last minute preparations before we leave to the surface.

Postby minalia on Tue Jan 11, 2011 4:19 pm

Since we are leaving chel in a permanent move and we have some amount of ada money that will be next to useless in the surface we should go and spend most of it in some items our clan is gonna need in a daily basis.

For our clan survival in a hostile terrain where there is many many swarms of bugs that can suck the blood from our drowish bodies quite fast we need something that can deal with them..yet is friendly to us.

We are gonna buy spiders, large hairy docile domesticated tarantulas like spiders preferably spiders that are between 2 feet and 4 feet big that will help us in securing our reign in the food chain and introducing another predator in the forest will help our claim towards it.

Anyone else has other good ideas in last minute purchases? Remember we got 200+ ada to spend and some gold bars left to be used during transactions with the halmes.

Well for starters How about a months worth of rations.
Then we could try to figure out some sort of repellent for the bugs that doesn't spook the spiders.
Some axes and stuff for getting rid of the trees.
Some more gear for the various professions as well.

Gold. That will be very useful on the surface, it`ll allow us to trade with the halmes for alot of useful stuff.

We actualy have 2 months worth of food reserves that the harvesters collected before running away from our home. As for gold we have 1 bar of gold and 23 coins of gold. We could trade the gold jewelry we have in the inventory since gold has no real use in mana manipulation. In a sense gold has as much value to drows as copper is for humans. We could also bring the 200 units of coal to be used in trading with the halmes. Strange i know we don't really need it with all the future wood we gonna be cutting off.

Gold is good, also silver, copper, and other metals will be of value to them.

Humm... I would say we should also invest in slaves if it doen't get abolished. The more hands we have working on the surface the better. Plus ada will become useless as soon as we get to the surface so I suggest spending what we can now instead of risking our supplies getting cut later.

Hold on there, spending all the ada may be a mistake, consider the outposts as we head for the surface, also on the surface. Well my reasons are selfish, I want bug spray or ointment, or whatever it is.

How's about some more essential items first, then we buy luxury goods. ^^

If no one has a problem i will put a LA advice about going to buy some big power gems so that we can build a few big vehicules to help out in construction work im gonna go and attempt to get us at least 5 big powergems. Each of them are valued at 20 ada.

So far pretty much every attempt in obtaining ressources in the LA has failed miserably but this will be the last damn attempt at trying to get something done in the LA page. If this fails like every other idea that was proposed in the weeks before then its a damn waste of time of even trying to get shit done by the LA.

Shouldn't we focus more on buying tools, axes, shovels, etc. as well as tents and rope?

WE have some of those things already... But having extras can't hurt...

What we should focus on however, i acquiring things that we don't already have, and that are only available in Chel (at least with any reliability).

*Inquire about Haledri breeding. Buy a pair in Chel for transport/breeding.*

I have put in this advise in respose to Kern´s answer towards the packlizards breeding and usefulnessa t the surface.
Haledri are ideal pack animals for the surface, not lazy, friendly, easy to handle and we will be able to breed them above where the sun shines.

I hope that my advise will get the necessary 5 votes to pass so that we can see the result.

We will need pack animals for the beginning of our journey as well as help for building stuff and transport goods somewhere else. So Haledri are a very good, useful and cheap way to replace our now soon useless pack lizards.
