Octopus Quest - Qualified Perceptions

Octopus Quest
My sister has never quite forgiven twe for beating her in Octopus Wars and bringing the game to an end, (or justom for being a Really Mean Judge), so in this past visit, I allowed as enough time had passed that maybe there could be more octopodes. Perhaps an Octopus Quest, with quest givers (with exclamation points over their heads), perhaps with eps that can be spent on leveling up, or gold that can be spent on Loot or Spiffy Hats.

So I am curious - are there any retired octopodes who would be interested in questing? Or new questers who would need an octopus of their very own? Or, alternately, are people interested in being quest-givers (mean or otherwise)? Alternately alternately, if you're mjperson, do you want to help run it (in your copious free time...)

Current Mood: curious curious

This amuses me because, even though I didn't submit many entries, I still enjoyed octupus wars. Octavia has been leading a fairly sedentary life, but I'm sure she would love to engage in some new adventures!

I know where my octopus is! I would help crochet or sew octopus hats.

Spiffy hats and questgiver sounds good!

Sneezy is right here on a book shelf, still waving his Tibetan flag.

I would be interested in participating in this somehow, but I don't know where kelkyag's octopus is.

Octopodes can be caught or created!

Oddly, I don't know which one kelkyag's octopus is!

This is my octopus! I made it a loooong time ago -- maybe when I was in elementary school? I couldn't find it for the octopus wars (nor did I have a digital camera at the time), but it subsequently turned up, so this time we can play.

Love from Girls

My girls took out the octopuses earlier this week to play with them and go on super octopus adventures with them. I suspect that they would be very interested in Quests (tm), particularly if they were gaining Eps (racing themselves) instead of competing to beat adults.

This could be fun. I have no octopus, having been a judge last time. But I probably have enough time to quest or quest-give now.

Fisher says we should do it. I'm not so sure, but Fisher's being pretty insistent, so yeah, we're in.

After Octopus Wars ended, Tako surfaced once in a while, and then promptly got lost in our house just before Luka was the right age to use him as a toy, dammit. I don't think he's about to appear again in time for a quest.

We would be very interested in questing, but this time would need an octopode who matched all the others.
pekmez From: pekmez Date: September 12th, 2011 11:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
...and this post was enough to summon him! I had cleverly put him away, in the box of good toys for toddlers, which is conveniently the stage Luka is entering. Sadly, Luka has just about outgrown playing with fuzzy squeaky toys, but Tako is still ready for a quest.

Yay! I will refrain from putting a Tako Yaki face on the blue octopus in the pile of New Octopodes. :)
pekmez From: pekmez Date: September 13th, 2011 12:37 am (UTC) (Link)
...on the other hand, perhaps gljiva would want to quest with a crocheted sibling to Tako. Were you really going to put a Tako face on him? That sounds so cool! :)
firstfrost From: firstfrost Date: September 14th, 2011 03:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Okay, I'll put a Tako face on the blue one regardless. :) (They're so fast to make, I seem to be making a fleet even though it's not clear a second fleet is needed.)

I love the idea of Octopus Quest, but I was never very good at actually submitting entries.

Also, I have to figure out exactly where Orly got to after the move...

I would love to play!

Could perhaps my Kraken play in lieu of octopus?

Sure, all cephalopods welcome!

Octopus Prime has been thinking for some time now that he really ought to appoint a Scribe, and perhaps a Tentacle, since he has become quite busy with Octopus Minor...

Sure! I have my octopode. Have to check, I may be short one minion though.

I could crochet more with you, and possibly offer quests and judge.
