Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] To whoever finds this

Every time I think my life can’t possibly get weirder I turn a corner and find out I’m wrong…very, very wrong. We were out “farming” and I had been noticing that every so often there’s these guys dressed up in cosplay – they look like they’re made out of rock. I’d call then freaks but we got a ninja, a preacher, Genghis Khan and that’s not nearly the worst of it (more on that in a bit…)

Anyways, these rocky guys can take a lot of hits and I found myself remembering one time when I burned the crap outta my hand making some tea….yes TEA no guts, no eyeballs or anything vile just…just tea..sorry, it’s been a bad week. Well after I got burned if I just touched the area it hurt like crazy – so I thought, if I could like turn the rocky thing into one big blister and then have one of the other guys smack him a little….well let’s just say it would probably ruin his whole day.

So we’re going out a little father than usual and things are getting rough. I was in the back row with the preacher and Braveheart. Genghis, the ninja girl and the freak with the umbrella were out front. And all of the sudden umbrella guy eats it! Quick note; he really kinda deserved it. I mean not that it should happen to anyone but he would take fo-everrrr to do his thing. I’m surprised he’s lasted this long…

So preacher runs out to help and starts his rap/chant thing which normally gets everyone in the zone but instead this flying tazer thing nailed him and he just stood there frozen with his eyes all bugged out and the stupidest look on his face you could ever imagine. Meanwhile this short thing that looks like a toaster pops a big ol’ hammer right between the eyes of ninja girl and she goes down!

So Genghis yells at ME to jump in! What the heck am I supposed to do?!?! Well I had my bow and I had been polishing it so I took the rags, wrapped it around the arrowhead, dumped a bunch of cleaner on them and lit it –BIG flames (if I had eyebrows they would have been burned right off!)

I shot the toaster and some flaming polish got on him but by crazy luck the arrow glanced off and NAILED the flying tazer bat thing. Tazer bat was not happy about that! Genghis turned back and smiled so wide IU could see all five of his teeth! For a second I felt like I’d done something good but the toaster thing smacked him in the back of the head and he went down like a pillowcase full of pudding.

Honestly I screamed like a little girl and just started flinging arrows and fire everywhere. And then I heard this crazy scream and I saw a green and white plaid explosion on the field…Braveheart had jumped up and my worst fears were confirmed – He started swinging that big honkin’ mallet at everything..Really…everything. I saw him hit a boulder with it and I don’t know if he thought it was one of the rocky guys or what but he just kept hitting it until it was dust.

Preacher was rapping and the swirl of dirty hair and funky smelling plaid started whirling even faster. I was thinking of yelling at him to watch where he was swinging but I honestly thought he would have come after me! At this point I really don’t know if he beat up everyone else or they got so freaked out they ran away.

I just remember feeling really dizzy and when I looked down I saw a purple spider the size of a freaking dog humping my leg! That’s what it looked like anyway – later, back in town, when I regained consciousness there were two puncture holes in my shin.

I was literally on my last nerve and the nurse told me the preacher was outside waiting to visit. I said he could come in and he walked in wearing a freaking zebra costume. A freaking.zebra.costume…

At this point I just want to drink the purple spider juice and pass out again…I cannot even think about what horror will happen tomorrow.

I think I’ve lost my mind. We went out “farming” again, this time in the old spooky tower just outside of town. At least that’s what I thought we were doing. Some of the other guys seemed really excited. (I only continue to go because I don’t want them to turn against me!)

So we’re out and the carnage is fairly light, if such a thing can ever be called light; and one of the guys opens a treasure chest and pulls out…get this…a turkey leg! The “team” reaction was varied. “Genghis Khan” grabbed it and was just feeling the heft of it with a frown on his face. Ninja girl (I think it’s a girl after all…hard to tell beneath the mask…) started laughing, the preacher guy looked like he was deep in thought and Braveheart…well I still can’t look that guy in the eye. Anyway, Genghis says we should go test it out and the preacher starts talking to him while we take off and all I can think is, “How the heck do you ‘test out’ a turkey leg?” I mean pretty much you just eat it right? Right!? …no, apparently not right… If fact what happened next was about as not right as you can get. We found another group wandering the tower and Genghis walks up to their leader (who was no small dude himself) and slaps him right in the face with the drumstick! I mean, at first it was kinda funny ya know? The whole party was so dumbfounded we just stood there for a while with our mouths hanging open. And then he did it again, but harder. And I noticed the preacher starting to pray or something…he was talking so fast I couldn’t really understand him. Then SMACK the leg hits again! And then again, but harder still and faster too. He hit him again harder & faster over and over, each time he actually seemed to be picking up momentum until there was just a blur of meat and bone until the big man lay on the floor; his armor dented and glistening with grease from the turkey leg. I couldn’t watch anymore. I just turned away until it was over and we all went home early. I think Genghis ditched the drumstick…sweet mercy I hope he threw it away after that and didn’t just eat it! Maybe he sold it to the creepy guy in the balloon (ha!) Wow Miguel…what are you saying? …I’m sorry; this place is getting to me…

It’s me again..Ubermo…I mean.. MIGUEL! Dangit… I don’t know how long I have to write.

Things have taken a turn for the worse. Yesterday I actually found myself with five other towns people (including the doof i was telling you about!) I overheard them say something about going to do some farming and before long we were in the middle of a field. But I remember thinking it was strange that no one had any tools like a hoe or a plow. We came upon a group of street sweepers who seemed to be minding their own business and outta nowhere a guy from our group dressed like the doof dressed like a ninja jumps out and slashed one of them with his sword! Holy crap I thought that thing was just for show!! Well of course their whole group got riled up and started to retaliate. Me and two other guys just kinda hung back but the ninja dude, some freaky guy with an umbrella and some guy dressed like Genghis Khan just beat these poor guys into the dirt! To make matters worse they stole the metal and wood that the sweepers had managed to scrape together! I felt so bad, they were probably gathering it up to make a house or something and then boom – they’re hosed and these jerks are stealing their stuff! I couldn’t even really watch. We just kept going from one field to another doing it again and again. It started to seem like a super violent deja vu nightmare – I could have sworn I saw the same group of sweepers come by over and over and every time the three guys on our side just beat the snot outta them. At least one of the dudes hanging back with me seemed ok. He was dressed like a priest & he kept talking about knowing that there was something out there…maybe someone out there…who was watching us..maybe even controlling us! Oh I almost forgot, there was one other guy back with us.. He was dressed like the guy from Braveheart & he had a huge freaking mallet. I don’t know too much about him…I couldn’t even really look at him because I just got this vibe that he could snap at any second and start swinging that thing. Now here’s the really twisted part…I don’t even know how to say this… I wouldn’t ever actually take part in something like this…but as I watched, I kinda felt like if I did do something like this I’d know just where to shoot one of them with my bow. I mean, I could see how I could kinda hit one guy just right and I bet the arrow would almost like, bounce off and maybe hit a second guy if I did it just right. Oh man what am I saying?!?! Being around these violent guys probably just rubbed off on me – I am not a mean person!

I don’t know how much longer I can take it… For days on end “the pointer” floats throughout our village changing everything on a whim. New Buildings crop up, old ones move around (last month my house moved and I couldn’t find it for two days!)
One day the pointer touched Jesse and he grew a beard! Everyday it drags us around to talk to each other -even the doofy girl dressed like a ninja got in on it. Sometimes I try to hide behind a building but sooner or later it finds me. Other times it seems that all we do is rally to build things or make things…it seems so pointless.
We had a couple bakeries for a while but then someone planted crops and now the bakeries hardly ever make anything. And where do all the crops go if the bakeries aren’t using the wheat???
The day to day living is so monotonous…there are some really nice houses where the heroes live but most of us have the same house and with the exception of a few shrubs and fences that’s about it.
Oh and there’s a couple things that just creep me out -Then there’s this big fuzzy thing walking around eating and everything – doesn’t anyone own this thing? Then there’s a huge balloon hovering around all the time with some creep piloting it. I’ve never seen it land but someone told me he tried to sell them a cup of guts…GUTS?!?!
Today was especially hard… the pointer touched me and BOOM everyone started calling me “Ubermonkey”..My name is Miguel! WTH!?! I’ve also developed a strange fascination with archery. (with is actually kind of cool.)
I have no clue what tomorrow will bring and it’s starting to wear on me. Hopefully someone will find this message…

The same would be handy for the use function, having to click and confirm to use each bundle sucks.

My counts were off +1000 more broken maces and the rusty screws keep on coming…i think it’s safe to say the of the number of total clicks; “IT’S OVER 9000!”

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] fuzzlehorn

Ok I just fed this little booger 2800 broken maces…guess how many times I had to click my mouse? Go on …Guess… 2800! Then I get 2800 rusty screws which I will feed him/her/it to get bundles of iron. Wanna hazard a guess how many times I’ll need to click the mouse??? 2800! Then you know what I’ll get after that? Carpal tunnel.
Please, make it so you can hold down the button and increase the count (I can hold down the button now but nothing happens :P ) or put a “feed all” button in (and I can back down the count by clicking the mouse.) Or let me type in the number… ANYTHING!

My mouse and middle finger thank you (although to be honest my middle finger is contemplating a different action.)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Leg count

Is it just me or didn’t the last message (over 24 hours ago – a message which is no longer showing…) say, “The current “Turkey Legs consumed” count is at 4,131.” ??? Shouldn’t that count have changed? Has no one eaten a single drummie since then and where did the other post go?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Suggestions and bugs

In a big room if all the guys “on the bench” are dead and I use a revive sometimes the other dead guys are blocking him. So when I try to bring in the newly revived guy I can’t get him selected in time because the game thinks I’m pointing at the dead guy in front of him.
So either make that area bigger or automatically shift the dead guys to the left and the living to the right (on the back bench not the currently fighting group.)

But now if I’m slogging through act 4 harvesting goodies my game export won’t work properly (it doesn’t let me pick a directory to save the file in, if that’s a clue) and once I’m out and quit; I’m back as if it never happened.

ok I looked it up – I’m trying it now & I’ll let you know! I see that you need to export your save first because it will reset everything when you disable the plugin!

I don’t know about “pepper” flash? But I disabled the flash plugin as described in the link above and when I reloaded it said I needed flash upgrade to play :(

I can save the game (thanks!) but any store I upgrade automatically resets to it’s basic level between acts…saving doesn’t help and now I have to upgrade them to the highest tier within the act in order to buy anything useful :(

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Monsters' Den Chronicles] ok so my saved game just vanished.

Not sure how that happened. I didn’t clear the browser, or delete everything…but now I’m at ground zero :( I’d finished and all my characters were over lvl 120 so I guess there was really nothing left to do (I’d gotten all the badges, etc.) But still…kind of a drag…
