    I had to ask around and may be wrong but it seems like your discord account is still in the Suboptimal and Oddjobs discords. Is it possible your account changed between then and now? You can contact deer at @capreolina on discord or also me (@dilkdrinker) and get it sorted. MapleF11

    So.... This is new for me. I'm gonna introduce a new character that I've made recently.

    ENTER manni!

    A little bit about manni. He's a 'steelman' which means that he's an oddjob but with certain restrictions similar to an ironman.
    The oddjob that I decided to go with is a Hybrid of a Punch Slinger/Pugilist/Luk pirate and he does not wield any weapon.. I've never tried a pirate and therefore I thought I'd give it a go with manni. Also, manni was created as a means of making full use of my time when there is a 'PQ downtime'. As I'm from Singapore (+8 GMT), there are very few people doing PQs at the timings that I'm most active and hence, manni was born.

    Self-imposed restrictions:
    NO Trades
    NO Merchants (with exception of grocers for pots)
    NO funding from any sources
    NO PQs allowed (Except PPQ for that pirate hat drip MapleF8 & APQ for the appos)
    NO looting of other player's loots
    Partying outside of PQ only allowed during bossing

    *Those are the only ones I could think of for now*

    Started off in Maple Island as per usual. *No pics cause I forgot MapleF3*
    PSA to everyone trying to get to lv 21 for KPQ and what not, there are 2 quests in Floating Market that gives a whooping 30k EXP and it's easy to complete! He only requires you to give him some branches and wood for him to make what seems to be a wooden sword. *I might be wrong due to that thing on my face.*

    The other guy, Toon, only requires 10 screws which you can easily get off the Free Market OR do John's jump quest. (easiest JQ imo) and TADAH! Level 21.

    As per usual I leveled him up through quests and managed to get him to 25 with Winston's quest completed just before GM Buffs ended.

    Next, I went to do Camila's Gem and otw to deliver this beaut of a marble, I hit a pig and a card dropped. What are the odds! TaimaTaima

    Legend of the Snail quest was a tough one as I had to come back at level 27 to complete it due to the fact that MANO, the old wise snail, was taking an hour's nap. Mano.png

    Did all the Ariant Questline and hit the big 3.0. but continued on to 32 before I went for a promotion that I had to earn with blood, sweat and tears from Kyrin. The only time I wielded a weapon was in this TEST that Kyrin had planned for me.... it was nerve-wrecking as I only had the 3 sets of 600 bullets given when I became a pirate and the lv 10 gun which she lent to me for my adventures. With only 98 bullets left and a gun that I had in my hand to show Kyrin I was worthy, she promoted me to a Gunslinger!

    Thoughts:
    I really had fun on manni on Day 1. It was challenging and entertaining throughout that 8 hours of torture but I had fun. I hope to post more updates on manni at every milestone that he achieves.

    Apologies for taking up so much of your time to read through this mediocre and poorly written post. Hope you guys enjoy the read!

    Finally another steelman, and with such a unique oddjob blend~! What a fun read! I don't think anyone could consider your post mediocre or poorly written.

    Are you aware that pugilists can choose to wear a shield (or not, if it feels silly to punch holding a shield to you)? This can further increase their damage without actually wielding a weapon. It may help manni out, and give you more items to hunt scrolls for (especially since you're going the no-equipment-merchant route).

    I'm not too familiar with pirate job advancements but I recall that Kyrin forces the player to use certain skills, and therefore probably a gun sometimes, during the advancement tests. Glad to see that manni doesn't have a problem pistol-whipping his way through the advancements.

    I loved reading the start of manni's adventure! We want more! Give us more! ARGH (the sound that a pirate makes)! piratemush
