{yes! I think some of the ingredients are hard or dangerous to get, but you can make wings to wear and fly with them and I think that will make going up into the sky much easier.}

Permalink

"Ooooooooooooooooh. What do I need in order to make wings." 

Permalink

{well, let's see... you need wood and stone and glass and metal and a heart piece and a shadow scrap and a spirit shard, to make a Delicate Crafting Table to make wings at... and before that you need the three other crafting tables, Crafting Table and Advanced Crafting Table and Refined Crafting Table, but it only takes wood and stone and glass and metal to make those... and then once you have the Delicate Crafting Table you need wing ingredients, and there are lots of different kinds and they all need different things...}

"I have a crafting table! Or Wilbur does. And I can get more wood to make another one easy. What do I need to make an Advanced Crafting Table?"

Permalink

{wood and stone and metal!}

Permalink

"I really need to get some metal, I keep starting digging and not finding any and getting distracted by something else before I hit any. Do you know what are good places to find metal? I tried a bleeding forest and a desert." 

Permalink

{I think metal is usually found near ordinary stone... maybe you could try digging in places where rock shows on the surface?}

"Good plan! I'm going to go down now and tear down a tree for seeds and stuff, hold on," she says, and crawls down the tree at a rather more sedate pace than she would if it was just her. She grabs another tall tree by the base and yanks.

There is S O M U C H W O O D.

Also a couple of seeds.

Permalink

Heeeeee it's raining tiny item wood. She giggles as it plinks off her sides, then collects all that lovely wood and also the seeds. 

"Okay! This time I have a plan and I'm gonna stick to it! I'm gonna take this wood and these seeds back to my brother, introduce you to him and the forest spirit, get a set of wooden armor, and then dig until I have found metal." 

Permalink

{that's a good plan!}

Permalink

Lucy scoots back to the shore and into the water and swims over to the home island. 

Once there, she gallops back to the base camp, where Wilbur has made admirable progress on housing, and calls: "Wilbur! Forest Spirit! I met the Water Spirit!" 

Permalink

Wilbur emerges from a house-in-progress and smiles upon seeing how cute the water spirit is. 

Permalink

The water spirit waves.

Permalink

The forest spirit toddles into view, hops up and down delightedly, and also waves.

Permalink

So cute. 

"Also, I should probably be wearing armor." 

Permalink

"That would make sense, since apparently Vivaria does not care how large and unusually shaped you are." He goes inside the first shelter he made, now repurposed for item storage, and fetches the armor. 

Permalink

Lucy takes off her coat and puts the armor on. 

Permalink

Now she is armoured! All together, the five armour items combine to provide excellent coverage without significantly hampering her movements. It's pretty comfortable, too, astonishingly so for being made of wood. The system seems to be a little confused about which parts of her should have e.g. gauntlets on them, but as long as she's wearing all five pieces the result is pretty reasonable in aggregate.

Permalink

The parts of her that should have gauntlets are definitely the tentacles but if the magic wants to be confused about that that's honestly reasonable. 

"Okay! I'm gonna find a spot just far enough from camp to not be a falling hazard and I'm gonna mine the heck out of it and then when we have metal I am gonna make some buckets and make a pool for water spirit and kill some slime into a bucket for Wilbur. And we can make the next tier of crafting table." 

Permalink

"What can we make with the next tier of crafting table?" he asks the water spirit. 

Permalink

{several things! the Advanced Crafting Table is useful for making items that contain glass.}

Permalink

"How do we get glass?" 

Permalink

{there are five kinds of glass! you can make ordinary glass by melting sand in a furnace, and find seaglass on the shore and deep seaglass in the ocean, and obsidian in the shadow forests and hallowglass very very high in the sky.}

"Can we craft something to make staying underwater longer easier?"
