So tonight I started the long, long, long process of raising a new bird. We're looking at a 60 RL days process here, at the minimum. 60 days of RL checking on it, spending time on it, spending money on its food and meds... Stupid chick, I should stomp you now!
I tell myself this though: A two month investment and then, assuming the bird comes out well, I'll never have to raise another. I'll be set for all the current races and any future ones.
So anyway. My current racer bird, NorthernSea, is being bred to Guppy's uber-racer HitenMiss. Following my usual naming convention, the chick will be NorthernMiss. Father is yellow, mother is red (but I don't care what color it comes out). If this chick isn't born with any abilities, it will die. (I have three more female cards after this one to try again, so I can gleefully kill any lacking chicks.)
On the positive side of the day, I got my fifth merit, which went into lowering Snake Eye again. It's at 7:30 recast now, so just 50K more XP and it'll be done. Campaign may bore me in a regular basis, but I'd never ever ever have as many merits as I do if not for it.
Still haven't RPed, though at least the last couple days I tried! E for Effort?
