Joker day, three card total, ~30 out of ~180 health, no-where near a city.
Next fight got me a 7-heart streak, healing 71 health points per turn.
Can't complain...

Doing a level 7 DK, encounter a Magpie, and groan a little because I expect to die in the first round. Resignedly press F, turns out that I riposte a million times and it dies in one round. Shoot from just finishing level 9 to just below level 12.

Can't complain.

Use a builder's brew for my new dwelling.
Manage to build 9 rooms in a single gameday
Can't complain.


Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? All you get is one trick: rational thinking. But when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, the sky's the limit.

Might even be bragging. But only a little Razz

In a fit of madness, attempt to do a Rank 6 on DK 7. Fail a lot. Fail some more. Fail in addition to that. On the other hand, rack up enough cigs for a better bandolier or half a stake or a nudge along to infinite for the clan buff. (Also, got to beat a Rank 6 by DK 7.)

...can't complain!

Accidentally click into the Abandoned Factory by pressing "B" for Bank when CC is on red alert and the bank is closed.

Get the single easiest map, the one that goes 10 clicks straight up. Walk out with 3 cigs and 1000 req.

...can't complain!

Walk across the Island, bleeding Stamina with every step, to end up in Kittania to find that there is still no Chapel, but also to find the majority of conscious Contestants on the Island...

...can't complain.


Judging by the chaos, I've been here already.

I've enjoyed reading people's accounts of good and bad fortune. But, perhaps it'll add a bit of intrigue if I explain what was in my mind when I started this thread.

People use the phrase "can't complain" to say, modestly, that they're doing alright. But it's also used in a tongue-in-cheek way to point out when something happens that's bad, annoying, frustrating, maybe even infuriating—but which in turn causes something really good to happen.

I deposit all my ciggies before I swing at the pinata, to make sure I don't drop any. When I had deposited them all in my clan bank, I was on my way to the pinata. Finding another ciggie in the outpost meant I had to go back into the clan bank and deposit that one before I could go take a swing—which was really annoying, except, I found a ciggie!

I realized I had hit the wrong button and traveled past the outpost again, wasted some stamina again, and was annoyed at myself for forgetting—except, crates are awesome!

It's that peculiar mix of frustration and delight that tickles me. I want to go arrgh, arrgh! ARRGH. BUT... can't complain.

Wandered into the Jungle and started a fight with only 3 health (Ooops....). Definitely Failed.

Lost to a monster by 1 hp. Got failboated. Is a kittymorph so it took three fights to get off. Can't complain.

Ran into a Magpie -- nearly lost my ass but managed to pull through. Gained 6746 experience and is now 1570 from next lvl up. Can't complain.

Currently using my best friend as a go-between for story me and Skye because I'm planning to hold a concert in Central and she's all the way down south of NewHome. Had to explain what instruments specifically make up a jazz band.

And also, I got to vent my spleen at a contestant I'd never met before about stuff that had story me upset.

...can't complain.


Do you want to remember me? Then don't look away...

Come back after a long time away and beat a Bastard Rank in an hour and a half.

As a mutant.

Not Complaining.


Not as sociable as I used to be. In fact, Cherri seems to prefer to spend her time at the Regnans but meh,

Can't complain.

Walking down from AceHigh, I get within one square of NP before getting Failed, this just when I'd gotten my exp to a point where I could maybe level up within the next century. And taking a rowboat off the Failboat lands me back at Ace, where I have to walk all the way down again with my awful Joker travel stats.

But a step south of Ace and I stumble across a crate that nets me an OST and a couple grenades, so, uh, can't complain!
