I’m procrastinating looking at the DMV handbook, and I haven’t played ACNL yet this morning, so I’m not ready to blog about my awesome weekend yet. Instead I thought I’d post a few pics of Fantasy Life: Link aka the reason why I haven’t been visiting dream villages, getting all the club tortimer goodies, and amassing my fortune.
When last I mentioned Fantasy Life, I was enamored with the sewing job. I still am and I’m actually a “master” at it though I think there’s at least one more skill level beyond that.
I decided to try my hand at cooking as well so I switched my job. Yes, in the picture above I am rocking a pot on my head. The crafting mini games so far are virtually identical between jobs and yet I don’t get bored of them. I find myself wanting to see if I can make just one more thing to see if it will unlock another recipe or if making something new will give me “star points”. Each item crafted also yields exp. And it’s true that you can play the entire game without fighting monsters. You could just level up by crafting. Often times you get more exp for making something difficult than by killing a lot of the monsters.
Essentially the star points are turned into your guild leader and raise the level of whatever profession you are.
Unfortunately I hoard everything in Fantasy Life (much like in Animal Crossing) because I never know when/if it will come in handy. As a cook I spend a lot of money on ingredients. Ditto with the seamstress job, so I’m almost always broke. My husband was able to buy another house in a different city, and while I had enough money to buy it, I quickly lost all the money purchasing silk, buttons, and jewels to craft clothes. He has mainly been a lumberjack, a miner, blacksmith, and mercenary. I’m thankful for the blacksmith job and the multiplayer mode because he made me a set of armor that was better than the dragon costume I was running around in (though not nearly as cute).
My husband may have more money than me, but I can make tuxedos and princess dresses. 😉 Not to mention curtains and rugs. Although currently my house has a shipdeck theme that I got from the royalty in PortPort village.
And this is the magical castle from the third city. It’s very ominous. I hope they’re not the bad guys…
