i haven't been in game much these last few months.  i blame it on homework, or housework, or just plain work - but the real answer is because i hate essence work.  I HATE IT. i dread, dilike, abhor, and just can't abide it.

therefore, i have made a decision to switch to another construct skewl.  i think i have fabric and metal(?) left to do, so i am gonna switch to that.  prolly metal, as it is way easy for me and i need some easy right now to get me back excited about the game again.

with that in mind, i am giving you one last forum post (it's a good one, i promise), then in a couple days i will post the bright ess constuct posts i have been putting off for months, then i will continue with whatever resource i choose next (thinking about it while i type, i am leaning toward metal more and more, especially since i am leveling up gatherer and miner, and will speed thru miner if i choose metal....then i will have all the metal resource skewls at 100......plus, i believe there is both a miner and a fitter trainer in aughendell, which is very handy!)

ah, my mind is no longer filled with creative procrastination thoughts when i think of home........

so, here is the forum thread i think you should check out!

You know you've been playing too much Istaria when...


I started painting our house this month. It began with scraping; I figured I gained a bunch of levels in learning how a power washer worked and how to scrape only the loose paint without damaging the wood beneath. I could tell I was gaining skill points as my efficiency improved.

I gained a few more levels in fixing boards. Some were just loose, so hammering a few nails in worked; other required replacing altogether. Learning to pull boards without damaging the ones above them made me thing I made it to a new tier. I figured I gained another tier in having to replace the rotted boards behind a damaged baseboard... or maybe it was multiclassing, learning carpentry? Is pine wood tier 0 ? I made it up to cedar with the siding, but I'm still not very good at handling that.

Next came primer. I already had skill points in handling paint brushes from working on sets for the local theatre group, so I was near maximum efficiency with that. I'm low tier, though, because getting the right paint color to go over top of it took several tries.

I figure I made tier 2 housepainting with trim work (including spindles all around the porch, ugh!) that was a different color than the main paint. It's all latex, though; I suppose higher tier would be oils and indoor paint?

Anyway, part of our house is looking better despite my inexperience. One thing is for sure: I much prefer crafting in Istaria!!
