Random Enkounters (2019 Edition)

Recommended Posts

It became a tradition to hold a Random Enkounter each month during the last year, but alas, I could find no more calendar pages for 2018.  Maybe it was cut short, I just don't know, but I was surprised when it stopped after December.

 

It will be a challenge, but I would like to attempt a Random Enkounter today and see if just maybe, just maybe it is possible to hold them in 2019 and see how many we can fit in this year.  I didn't look to see when 2019 would end... spoilers and all...  but maybe it will be a good long year this time and we can get at least twenty-nine or more  of these things in, but only time will tell.

 

Oh well,  now to Enkounter!

 

Today, Jugurtha on Pristine received the randomness.  4 challenges were bestowed.

 

Challenge #1  a classic...  Where will you find those that are not as alive as they once were?

Jugurtha chose the wrong but right answer of a 'graveyard'.....

 

Challenge #2 How many teeth does a troll have?

Jugurtha responded with 2 which was wrong!   So much for that fantastic lemonade fruit press.  The lemonade from it was enchanted to grant super fast actions, and you could climb up mountains as easily as some of these annoying mountain horses!  To the void with that delicious fresh squeezed lemonade!

 

Challenge #3  What is the year in Wurm?

Jugurtha responded with one thousand and eighty-one!  CORRECT!  Oh boy has he got a gift waiting for him!

 

Challenge #4.....hehehehe  Invasion of the Ants!  Jugurtha must rid his lawn of an ant invasion.  3 waves and the queen!

Jugurtha had little problem with the grey ants, but the red ants managed to reduce his blood pressure through some additional 'venting'.  Once he had the red ants eliminated the Grass ants attacked thinking they could confuse him with their fancy bipedal dances.  They failed....miserably.

Queen Antricia was not happy.... not happy at all!  Jugurtha faced her fiery wrath and .....was dead before I could write this sentence..... darn it!

 

For his winnings Jugurtha received a drum kit consisting of a steel helm, 7 barrels, and a huge tub, with a supreme mallet of noise ordinance violation.

Plenty of strings to string up some....stringed.. instruments... yeah... that's what they are for...  an oar, for when you just gotta beat a crab to death from a distance!

A rare spear...  good for fishing as well as on the spot heart surgery....  I know from experience :(.

 

Jugurtha also received some olive oil, and a pile of oak logs along with some large nails.  For his health he also received a lot of bacon and omelets with toast... I did not say for his 'good' health...

And of course what any famous drummer needs, a wardrobe to stash his outfits in to keep his soon to be famous drummer identity a secret!

Aw shucks!

 

The randomizer sent me to Affliction this month and I thought I had a real good participant but he never noticed me during the 10 minute window.  He was simply too busy polishing his grass tiles, and smoothing out the bark on some of his trees.

 

He stood a chance at receiving the Supreme Spoon of Awesomeness!....  legend has it that this super rare spoon of the gods makes anything you eat taste awesome and nutritious with the additional benefit of granting you super human strength.  It could also be used as a weapon against the Weirbeast of Mor-Kellba which guards the hidden vaults of the mythical chest of the fabled Gold 20 coin!   Then again, it might just be a piece of gold pressed latinum from another universe, but we will never know now...  into the void it goes....

 

Better luck next time!

These Enki-counters do seem like fun. It's on my Wurm bucket list to one day be visited by such an oddity.

 I would love to be visited by Enki, but the last time he was in local I ended up dead a few times.

Today I pulled out the randomizer and it sent me to Deliverance.

It landed me near none other than the randomizer's creator  Yaga!

 

The following transpired... (slightly edited for sanity)

I managed to EXTERMINATE all the bugs! But wait... does that mean Alectrys lost her job? ?

 

Thanks for the fun, Enki.

Hey that is the fate of The Randomizer :D

 

Anyway I wish to escalate the situation - as a randomized Yaga is not the same as the randomizer Yaga!

I would love to see the opinion of the communitiy if Yaga should be hit by the properly  randomizedly impossible quests.

 

Whatever happens now, I really love to read about the Enkounters month by month. Thank you for the fun times!

What's a Halbred? Does it have something to do with a crazy crimson computer? (I, of course, know what a Halberd is. :))

 

Quick, check for more typos!

Time for another Random Enkounter!

 

This time the Randomizer landed me near Thiagoxbo on Deliverance.

He noticed me right away and would have to endure 4 random challenges.

 

#1  What is the name of the new Start/Tutorial deed for new Wurm Online players?

With a two minute time limit, he failed to get it correct!

 

#2  Bring to me a small barrel within 2 minutes!

Maybe a bit too easy....

 

#3 Name any one of the deities of Wurm Online!

Thiagox got it correct nearly instantly with Vynora.

 

#4

The Gnomelord Geppetolemew seeks revenge for your trespasses across their grand fields of Gnome Berry trees. He has sent his fourth great grand nephew on his mother's dog groomer's sister's side of the family.  He has been conniving and scheming for months as he raised up a gnomish army to vanquish you!


Who will win?  The innocent but thieving Gnomes whom you have trespassed against?

Or Thiagoxbo, the brute who keeps stepping on their grand orchards, depriving them of much needed alcoholic bliss!

 

Thiagoxbo must face 3 waves of the army that the great grand nephew of the Grand Gnomelord Geppeolemew has raised to fight him!

Wave 1 - The Gnomoos attack!

The 10 Gnomoos were valiant if ill equipped with their brown and white war paint and short sharp horns of goring.  Thiagoxbo quickly ended their milk making days as their pasturized war cries carried through the fields.

Wave 2 -  The Gnophers of gnawing!

15 Gnophers began their assault on Thiagoxbo's legs in a commanding attempt to gnaw him down to size.  Thiagoxbo's clothing was not much help against the razor sharp teeth of the Gnophers, but his supply of bandages held out!

Wave 3 - Archgnomortys!

3 Arachgnomified Morty's have arrived on the field of battle.    Can Thiagoxbo send them back to whence they came?  probably not... but killing them should be much more entertaining!  Each eight legged Morty dealt plenty of good strikes on Thiagoxbo, but he had a good head on his shoulders and knew when to retreat to heal, and when to draw the Mortys out to the end of his sword.

 

With Arachnomorty blood spilled all over the place Thiagoxbo held out and won the day.

 

With the army defeated, Elmer the great grand nephew of the Gnomelord Geppetolemew's dog groomer's sister, came out to battle to the death.  Unfortunately, a loin cloth is not sufficient armor against a long sword.  A short , simple death awaited Elmer.

 

Now the Gnomes of the Deliverance isle will have to do without their much needed nose warming brandies.

 

Thiagoxbo received for his efforts,

Cake and Pizza!

A rare cheese drill that the Gnomoos brought with them

A supreme fishing net!

3 jars of honey, maple syrup, and vodka.  Very useful for cooking Arachgnomorty legs.

A pair of steel boots, because he really needed some ankle support!

A mountain lion rug to cover up those blood stains on the floor.

And most importantly 16 mallet heads!  Yes, you heard me  16 mallet heads!  Always know where your precious mallet heads are!

 

Now for the bad news....  There was a strange dimensional portal gun laying on the field of battle after the three Mortys were dismembered, but since Thiagoxbo failed the first challenge, I chucked it into the void.  At least he will never have to get hooked on inter-dimensional cable TV.
