so i finished the iron construction work on col's plot and wondered what to do next. since i was already mostly equipped thusly, i decided to switch to miner and work on the most wonderful resource spot in the whole world (in my opinion, of course) - with heather a very very close second - char's most excellent obsidian field. seeing as i was only a miner 49'er (okay yeah, its a very moldy joke, but after all these years, its the simply stuff that lasts.....hey, what do you find in an ewok's ear???), working obsid would get me some fast levels without all the hassles of working marble, which i still need 4 pieces of ore to make on brick with, as opposed to obsid - nice safe field with plentiful nodes, a handy, complete craftcave that is centrally located and accessible by bipeds and with a very handy road complete with road bonus running right down the center........truly, it is heaven for crafters!
heather is prolly considered a better place for crafters, and i do not dispute that claim, altho i obviously do not agree with it. heather is heaven tho! at least 3 different resources (kenaf, oak, and i forget which mushcap, but i think i remember its roughcap....and really, it's 4 if you count the granite, but it is way beyond the oak field - it does have a ws tho. no idea if it is complete, as i do my granite in aughendell. o and there is a wood ws at the top of the far oak field, but i use the player ones myself.). but - no game ws handy for any of it. however, at least on blight, who cares, because player built ws are better anyway, and peeps snap up those heather plots and build build build! hey, they do say real estate is all about location!
also, the oak field is not safe. treants all over, which can be a hazard to lower to mid levels (may need a babysitter) and storm's shadow has been known to roam the area as well.
anyhow, the point is, because i switched from a higher level skewl (fitter) to a lower level skewl (miner), i lost my ability to use my currently equipped cargo clothes. i could have donned my lower level cargo clothes (one NEVER gives away ones best cargo clothes of any level - unlike some things like cargo disks, they are always level dependent), but i figured i could just keep them in inventory and don them again as i hit the appropriate level.
but until then, this is me running around char obsid field in my skivvies:
center left is the craft cave and behind me is the beginning of the obsid field. you can see the outcroppings of black lumps that indicate nodes.
