-I want 2 oxen. (100)
-2 Fishing gear (20)
-2 Cayenne pepper (20)
-3 rifles (60)
-10 ammunition (100)
-2 Milk Cows (100)
-2 Water Keg (40)
-2 Dogs (20)
-2 Blacksmith tools (40)
-10 Spare Wagon parts (100)
-10 Snake-Bite kits (50)
-2 Horses (80)

Total: 730 Dollars.
900-730= 170 dollars left!

Always good to be prepared!

Also, just a question: if someone in my family gets bitten by a rattle snake, would I be allowed to suck out the venom and pour whisky on the wound? I did this in my 4th grade Oregon trail simulation for my "wife" and she wound up living.

Let's see, I'll take...

Four of these ($200)

Two of these ($20)

One of these ($10)

One of these ($20)

Five of these ($50)

One of these ($50)

Three of these ($60)

One of these ($20)

Four wheels ($40), four yokes ($40), and two tongues ($20)

Six of these ($30)

All of these purchases come to a total cost of $560.
Subtracting that from my funds results in a remaining balance of $340 left for purchases later on.

Each ammunition is good for 1 hunting trip.

Fishing gear and blacksmith tools can be reused. The snakebite kit can't, and neither can the pepper.


Why not?

Please note, the money will be rather useful out on the trail.


YES. This will be fun, then!

I just have a few questions before I submit my list. Hopefully you can answer them.

Do animals (Oxen, Cows, Dogs, Horses) impact our food and water supplies?
Is there options to barter/trade with other players on the trail?
Can I eat dead animals?


Yes. also there will be a trade that will be given like so.

someone walks up to you and says "I have 1 spare wagon part. I want 1 week supply of food."

take trade?
You may take both.

Yes. if any animal dies you gain 1 week supply of food, but not if it wanders off.

On round 3, there will be a deadline of 72 hours (or three days). The buying round counts in the round countdown.

@Marendex_T17, you know you are the crook, so you can steal 2 items from the wagon, right?

That I do know.

I figured it was best to save the thievery for later, when security might be more lax.
* stealthily moves towards the ammo *
I heard that they have a "Grab one, get one free!" discount on ammo today.

You were caught, and thrown out of the shop. Good thing you had already bought the 5 packs a couple of hours earlier.

@Booster_Gold @Chronicler
Please define which wagon Parts.



We have to DEFINE them? I don't know all the parts of a wagon, I don't think Booster_Gold knows them either. Can't they just be spares and not be so definitive?

Yuedom overruled me. He says that they should be generic spare parts.
I don't think that putting a yoke on the axle will work very well, but he's in charge of this topic.


Does this mean that I have to change my order to say "Ten spare-parts ($100)" instead of "Four wheels ($40), four yokes ($40), and two tongues ($20)"?
