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!

Maybe a clue of a new special set of magical armour hidden at Golden Vali :P
