Talk about the game. What game? The game with the power? What power? The power of ... aw, skip it.

Whoops, I misread the "not including caffeine" line. Still, the baseline is just a baseline. If you're going to talk about turncount, you need to include caffeine to get an accurate picture. Plus adrenaline rushes when you level up, plus given just a few days you ought to get a reward which increases turncount even more.

No, you still don't get anywhere near as many turns as KoL, but I'm leaving room for more increasers. One of the higher-level quests will speed things up even more, and there will be better grades of caffeine and more (though rare) adrenaline rushes or things that are equivalent. Leaving room for future expansion (near future, I hope), means I've got to be conservative about it to start.

has this whole week off. >:)

Also, being a superhero as a job...will probably make you a very suspicious person. You gotta have SOME kind of cover.

Indeed. I don't think I've gone to bed before 11 in years.


Do you engage in the extreme physical activity that our supers generally do, night after night after night?

I've been finding it entirely acceptable to go to bed at 2:00 am and wake up at 6:00 am for work. That's been pretty much my schedule this year.

Of course, I don't have Saturdays so much anymore. But I wasn't going to do anything great with that time anyway, so sweet, sweet oblivion is welcome then.

But what I find annoying is how the fame will tell me that my bedtime is 8am or later but at around 6:55 ish it says I am too tired and have to go to bed; and yes I do still have extra turns left to play. I dont' know if its a bug that limits how long you can play or it yer bedtime is just set at a particular time or what


There's a whole bunch about this in the manual (which I strongly suggest reading) about this sort of thing. As mr "live long and do not try" SpockYoda points out, there's a difference between the "too tired" message and the "you have to work now" message. One would be a bug, but the other is normal. If you're getting the bugged one, let me know.
