Let's Play Oregon Trail II

Post by Sir Sneaky on Sat Mar 24, 2012 6:01 pm



Yeahhhh let's do it
I'll be posting screenshots of our progress and asking you guys what we should do at various points. All characters are named after all of our current members except for me.
Spoiler:
Moe is the leader because she's the creator of the forum and also because the leader dies usually dies last and I don't want to get banned if she dies
We're playing on adventurer because >greenhorn is for pussies, and trail guide instakills you if morale is too low.
I've set everyone's age to their actual age except for prinners, because I don't know what his is and we need someone really old to balance out all the young'ins

Let's start off now: What Month/Year should we start in? Months are as listed in the below image, years range from 1840 - 1860

I'll just do this so we can maybe speed along the starting crap

Now, where should we set off from, and where should our destination be?
We can start from: Independence, St. Joseph, Nauvoo, or Council Bluffs.
We can go to: Oregon City, Sacramento, Great Salk Lake City, or Jacksonville.

Also we're taking the Large Farmwagon. The Small Farmwagon won't hold 6 peoples' shit and the Conestoga Wagon breaks every time a light breeze hits it.

This works. It's the furthest east starting spot to the furthest east end spot. It still works out to be a shorter than average trip but that's fine.

Now the big one: Our Occupation. This decides our starting money, our score multiplier, and sometimes provides bonus skills. Here's the list:

this shit will probably end badly if you pick anything under baker

Well, unfortunately age 75 isn't available. We'll have to settle for 65.

Alright, that's set. All we have left are skills. As is described in the below image, we have 120 points to spend on skills. Any skill points we don't use add to our score. Most of the skills are self-descriptive by name alone so i'm not going to type out what they all do.

Gotta keep things moving along here. I'll take those two and throw on Medical, Botany, and Commerce/Trade so we can find, smoke, and distribute marijuana. For medicinal purposes. Also because they're the best 3 skills in the game.
Spoiler:
So without further ado, let's start up!
Since the vendor menus have so much shit on them, i'll be doing all the shopping. And since i'm doing all the shopping, i'm going to buy a 6-month premade package and add extra stuff on top of it.
Spoiler:
Unfortunately the package alone already puts us over 4100 pounds, which means i'm going to need a second, small farmwagon. It's still better than taking the Conestoga.

The biggest items on my shopping list:
750 pounds of bacon, on top of the 510 provided. This shit never goes bad and is super cheap, and with 1260 pounds we can use it as toilet paper and still have enough to eat.
40 bullets. We start with 60 so that puts us at 100. We also already start with a rifle and 2 kegs of gunpowder.
a Rifle Sheathe, so moe doesn't fucking shoot herself on accident when hunting. It's an instant game-over if she dies.
25 hats. This cost me a fortune, don't lose them.
12 oxen. Oxen are god-tier animals, and I hope that 12 will be enough to haul our 6000 pounds of shit.
19 gallons of whiskey. Back in 1855, we're all old enough! Drink up!
And a load of useful medicines. We'll be able to cure anything short of AIDS.

This leaves us with 77 bucks. Better to spend it all when things are cheap; prices just get worse out west.

Our last choice before we hit the trail! Which train are we joining up with? Trains with more people tend to be shittier, but i'll leave it up to you guys.

Oh i'm supposed to be doing this aren't I? Fucking procrastination.

High priority on my to-do list, i'll get going tomorrow for sure.

In the meantime, have a .gif of Ace Rimmer riding an alligator to a safe landing, courtesy of Chocolate Moose.

Off we go!
Spoiler:
I've set our pace to 10 hours a day for starters, out of the avaliable choices 8, 10, and 12+. Our meals will be Filling instead of Meager of Bare-Bones since we have at least 1500 pounds of food.

We immediately hit a river, but there's a free ferry.
Spoiler:
Then we immediately hit ANOTHER river, and the ferry is an expensive $10. But the river is 900 ft wide, 13 feet deep, and rather treacherous, and on top of it all it's raining. I'll spend the $10 so we don't fucking drown.

10 days and one pointlessly-early waystation later, we reach another goddamn river. It also has a ferry - for another 10 bucks. This one is much smaller and safer, but it's still raining.
Spoiler:
We have $67.16. We can pay more and cross now, or cross ourselves if we want to save some money, which can be used to trade/buy and turn into bonus points at the end of the game. If we want to make it safer, we can also wait for the rain to stop.

Rain clears up after 4 days. We caulk the wagons and float across safely.

Barely a day after that, Leafblower's got the shits.
Spoiler:
What do???? (Also I can't save and quit on event screens. I can keep it running in the backround since it's only using 8 MBs of RAM but it still sucks)

Yes, it does. I'll also slow us down to 8 hours a day until he recovers as going fast makes it harder to recover.

Heavy Fog is the shit tier of random happenings.
Spoiler:
I've literally never had anything bad happen from fog so we continue at full speed.

Oh boy.

Okay actually I forgot that indian towns have nothing of interest; just this one bitch who wants to trade.
Spoiler:

She has absolutely nothing of interest; we're moving.

DFAKJSDFOIJAWEKERJAISDJF IT'S THE END OF THE WO-Severe Thunderstorm ahead. The sound effect for this event is very loud and scares the shit out of me.
Spoiler:
I can't think of anything bad that'll come out of a thunderstorm, but just to be safe i'm going to slow down. Besides, the trail is muddy and Leafblower is still sick, and going slower should help prevent either from turning into something worse.

We've made it to our first milestone: Council Bluffs.
Spoiler:
We still don't need any supplies. We have 1202 pounds of bacon left. Onwards!

Just a day out of Council Bluffs is the Missouri River, and we gotta cross it.
Spoiler:
As you can see, this river is fucking huge. Most rivers are 2-4 feet deep and only a couple hundred feet wide. However, it's not raining, and if I remember correctly, "A little tricky" is actually the second easiest river difficulty behind "Tranquil". What do? (As a reminder, we have $67.17)

Well, despite the fact that we drowned swamped our wagon, we still make it across the river whenever we fail like this.

Wanna stop by Florence, guys?

Bitches located.

I personally agree with this bitch and think we should stop fucking around here.

Or, if we disagree with the bitch and love wasting time, there are a couple stores around, and some more people to talk to (spoiler alert: nobody every has anything interesting to say)
