Where did I just wake up?
« on: June 25, 2011, 01:16:00 am »

Okay, weird things happen in adventure mode. I'm used to occasionally sleeping in a house and waking up outside. That's fine.

I'm walking crawling across the continent looking for a crutch. Story shortened, horse ate my foot. Not a crutch anywhere in the two cities I've visited.

Anyway, I went to sleep in a craft store. Odd store, nobody manning it. Not a single person inside. I slept, figuring I'd talk to anyone there in order to sleep. Nothing.
8 hours later, I woke up. In a manned armor store. Curious, I looked outside. Same location. The store changed overnight. The town now had 3 armor/clothing stores, not two. I was a bit freaked out.
Walking a bit west, I noticed a store I hadn't noticed before. It was an empty craft store. The building was there before, I just never bothered to walk around and see the sign. Thus, don't know if it was the same before I slept.
A similar store-swap thing happened earlier, but I didn't think much of it.

Does anyone know what the hell is going on?
And where can I get a crutch?!

Well, you could just make a fortress next to your adventurer's location, disassmeble the wagon, and make a crutch. OOOOR you could bring a unit of platinum and a unit of coke to make a kickass platinum crutch.

Towns tend to shapeshift. Either that or you're just dreaming when you woke up. /inception

Thank you for all the fish. It was a good run.

Oh thank goodness, I thought I was confusing myself and remembering wrong when a town I kept stopping at to sell things had buildings repeatedly vanish and reappear between visits.

On the item is an image of Ngom Fishsin the goblin and a alligator in mountain goat leather. The alligator is striking down Ngom Fishsin. The artwork relates to the killing of the goblin Ngom Fishsin by a alligator in Crueljoy in The Mechanical Spine in the late autumn of 11 during Kaguskok, "The Crazy Assault".

Yeah, Adventurer Mode sleeping is weird. One time I went to sleep in a titan's shrine and woke up on top of a mudstone pillar the height of the Empire State Building.

I can imagine a confused onlooker baffled at your amazing sleep-climbing skills. The next morning must have been Fun.

Oh yeah: Nazis.  Now I lost the argument.  So you can't argue with me anymore.  Nyah.

Weird stuff. I tested it, saving before sleeping in one building. Sure enough, every time I sleep there, no matter how long, it turns from a house into a weapon store. This really makes no sense.

Did you happen to drink large amounts of Dwarven WineTM before going to sleep?

Well, you do have a busy life, what with keeping tabs on wild, rough-and-tumble forum members while sorting out the drama between your twenty two inner lesbians.
Your drunk posts continue to baffle me.
Welcome to Reality.

I got a lot of waking up in weird places, but I never saw any definite shapeshifting, it looks like when you go to sleep in a building in a site, the game just dumps you off somewhere random when you wake up, which could be outside, or in another building.

It's probably Toady's sleepwalking feature lol ;-) [Sleepwalking]

I've noticed that. The problem here, though, is that it's the same building. The inside changes completely, but the position never changes.

I'm keeping a save right before I sleep. This is very interesting.

...I am totally doing this if any of my friends come over to my house and pass out drunk. I'm gonna transform my house into a store overnight, and early morning walk in through the front door and start freaking out about the random drunk dude sleeping in my store. HE WILL BE SO CONFUSED

no-quality training spears are about as effective as a limp noodle at doing damage
You forget that a limp noodle has a wobbly attribute to it. In fact, its characteristics and shape may liken it to a small whip made out of food.
In this sense, the limp noodle is a dangerous thing and should be slurped with extreme caution, lest your lips go flying off in an arc.
