We don't always like being nonplussed

Mother (earthbound 0) Flailthrough - Day 4 (Chimp-Furniture! The future in household mauling.)

And I return once again, my good readers!

Along with my return comes another moment of, "What the hell do I do now," which I am forced to answer with a resounding... buh? Because I have wandered everywhere, and done everything I could think of that would trigger... something...

Torneko 25: Year's End

Let's see, where did we leave off? My (Torneko's) wife has built herself a financial empire, literally out of Torneko's (my) blood, toil, tears and sweat. She's expanded our house several times and, once she was sick of it, built herself a loft above the huge shop I paid to have built in the middle of town. Or rather, she paid. With my money, but that doesn't seem to be an important distinction to her or anyone else in town. I'm almost certain the shop is named Nene-Mart. Meanwhile, there is a young, blond man named Mondo, a man of Torneko's approximate roundness who Mrs. Taloon is having "take care of" our old house. I have to wonder what else he's "taking care of" for Torneko. He/I am out beating up the horrors of the underworld and all I can picture for her life is The Real Housewives of Lance Town.

...huh? Oh yeah, the dungeon. I'm on Floor 22. Just to recap: I have no healing items, no offensive items but my sword and shield, and nearly no HP, but a lot of (mostly moldy) bread.

Torneko 24: I'm too busy being dead to have MY midlife crisis!

50,000 Gold, huh? I never thought that putting my kid through college would mean building the Goddamn college myself. But if nothing else, my wife is now allowing me to take my bread plus three other items into the dungeon- it'll help.

Turns out I'm living above the big shop now! Not too shabby. There's an exit to town to the right now, which I'll take in a bit.

Torneko 23: HOW Much!?

Floor 22 is a big maze so far. I forget what these guys are, but he just lowered my Power max by 1. That earns him a Fire Breath Herb to the FACE. ...which is not enough to kill and costs me another point of Power. Dammit! But then I drop the beast, so all's well for now. I pull a stupid and attack a Gigantes when another hit would end me, but by sheer luck it misses. Pay more attention, Torneko.

Torneko 21: Tactics and Traps

Okay, only 6K left to scrape together before Nene-Mart can open its doors and drive all the small merchants out of business across the globe. Or whatever my wife's doing now. Let's hit it.

Mother (earthbound 0) Flailthrough - Day 3 (crackheads are frightening.)

Ok, starting off this week I guess I should admit that I asked for a hint from a friend. I know, it isn't something I like to do either, but I've noticed that enough of the game is so different that I would end up stuck if I didn't. My friend is thankfully a reader, so all he told me was that I should go and speak with the pet store man in the department store, say yes, then say no... I don't know what this did, so I guess it wasn't too bad of a cheat.

Now comes my trying to figure out where the heck I go from here.
