TOPIC | KS Quest: The Hunt for a Familiar (Done)
[center]I've been saving for a few months now, but I think it's high time I made a thread for myself - maybe I can locate a seller in advance! I'm hoping to acquire [I]one Kickstarter familiar[/I]. I'm in the market for any of them, though my personal order of preference is thus: [item=bone fiend] >> [item=skycat] = [item=golden idol] > [item=cog frog] However, to my knowledge, the Bone Fiend is more expensive than the rest, and I probably won't be seeing him any time soon. Still! Most of my money comes from selling coliseum food, extra loot, festival currency, g1s, and the occasional investment.

Trickmurk was very good to me... I think this might have been the second most profitable fest I've ever had, coming behind Brightshine 2018. Popular apparel, good drops, and I ground up to eleven, coming out with a ton of food and Swipp materials to peddle. Feeling really good moving forward; reaching the halfway point on the familiar was a huge milestone I've been working up towards for months, and it's incredibly motivating being on the upper half of this kind of goal.

[center][quote=3/19 Savings][b]91,763g[/b] 61.2% of 150,000g[/quote] Living in weird times right now. Certainly good times to grind, but... well, let's just say my head hasn't really been in the game. Starting to run out of certain NOTN stocks - emerald forejewels, solar tail ribbons, dread dancer hindcallouses. Low on ruby forejewels as well. Still have hearty stocks of several other apparel pieces, so that part of my income won't die off for a while. Still, looking forward to Mistral Jamboree on Sunday, even if I suspect it's going to end up overground.
