What are you guys talking about with Nook?

So yesterday I played with my sister on her save file. Her town has a whole different group of animals, so cool. I showed her the many different things she can do. I saw KK, got some music.

Then outside out of nowhere this flying present appeared. It was tied to a balloon and it just floated across town. We spent the whole time screaming at the screen trying to find a way to bring it down, but nothing. It left. Sad


 LOL Same thing happened to me as well.

"Hey what is that?"

"I dont know"

"Well get it"

"How?"

"Try something"

"Its too high up"

"Well then move up"

"No its above a spot, look at the shadow its in the air"

"Well do something its leaving!!"

"I dont know!"

"Use a net"

"Thats not going to work!"

"Use the fishing pole!!!"

"What HOW will that work?!"

"Hurry do something, jump!"

"There is no jump!!"

"get up on a hill see if you can reach it"

"Its not near a hill! There needs to be some sort of slingshot we dont have"

"Its leaving!!!! NOOOO!!"

"NOOOOO!"

So I entered my town, everyone was freaked out that they had not seen me in so long. My house had roaches, my hair is a mess, weeds are all over town. So i began my clean up, most of it is nice again. Out of all the fruits you guys gave me only two trees grew, an apple tree and a pear tree, so I picked the fruit and buried it all. Some flowers were dying, I rearranged the live ones to some dirt spots. I need more flowers, I only get two seeds at Nook's. Speaking of which, he has is new store, yay! So I bought the slingshot and timer.

Thanks GG and Bugs for the gifts. GG totally had me faked out. I looked through my letters and its from someone called Neville, I was like ok someone from my town I forgot about. I read the letters and it was about some backrubs and "massages" and I was like you can do that in this game?! Then I realized that was GG's name, made much more sense. So nice to have a bunch of presents waiting, filled up my new house nicely. Thanks to whoever gave me the storage drawer, I needed that badly.

So I wandered around town, picking the billion peaches I have, made a ton of money. Found a T-Rex torso. Got an Angel Fish. Some new guy moved in, he says he was from GG's town, HA your guys like my town more! Then Wolfgang started to insult GG's town fashion sense, so awesome.  I went to the city but almost everything was closed, but the auction house was open and there was a dinosaur fossil there, GG but it up for bid so I bid on it. Happy

I need all your guys codes, Steel yours is not registering for some reason. I have a few questions that I probably asked before and forgot about:

1. Patti told me that Redd's shop sells counterfeits and I should only go there as a last resort. So where else do I get paintings?

2. So what do you do when one town folk talks about another towns folk, it colors the names and such as if I am supposed to do something with that info.

3. In town hall what do you do with the complaint/situation option?

4.  You guys told me of something that could take away all my weeds, what was it?

5. What does a pit ball things do?

6. Turnips, uh how does it all work and how can I get started with them?

 Double LOL

Vader really? Your hair messes up if you are away? I didn't know that. Who's the guy from Fortress? What time did you go to the city? It's usually open from 10am till 9pm?

 This is why its important for us all to use the auctions at the weekend guys. I keep asking you!

THE AUCTION

Is your animal crossing ebay. It virtually links all our towns with our registered towns. If I put up an item it will appear in the auction houses of all my registered friends and vice versa. 

Here is how it works:

It only works at the weekends, alternatively one week is for bidding, the next weekend is for putting up items for sale. You can access the Cloakroom, which is basically access to your storage at home, so you can pull items from there and put them up for bidding. 

If your item fails to sell, it will get mailed back to you.

3. In town hall what do you do with the complaint/situation option?

4.  You guys told me of something that could take away all my weeds, what was it?

5. What does a pit ball things do?

6. Turnips, uh how does it all work and how can I get started with them?

 1. Nooks occasionally sells paintings that are 100% authentic but they are few and far between and usually the less rare ones. You have to buy from Redd if you want any chance of filling up the museum. You will lose cash now and then so I suggest you wait till you are more solvent till you start doing it. 

2. It's just trying to link the games for effect, it doesn't do anything else, there are no secret bits here. 

3. I have no idea, I tried complaining about Anchovy who I hate, so he would leave. No effect!

4. A ghost appears on Mondays or Tuesdays in the evening at a certain time, if you track him down and find his magic lamp he will grant you wishes, one of those wish options is to remove all the weeds. I will check gamefaqs in a minute for you. 

5. Pit fall seeds are for planting hole traps in your town or others. You can push residents into them for fun or plant them in other peoples towns. Like when I built a dry moat around Bugs house in Shanti. Grinning

6. Sunday mornings before 12pm there is a warthog in your town that will sell you turnips. Buy a red one for 1000 and plant and water it everyday. By saturday sell it and rake in 16'000. 

White turnips are usually around 100 bells each. The price at Nooks changes everyday and you have to sell them by saturday or they go off. It's like the stock market, you can make masses of cash or break even or lose. The price at nooks changes everyday before and after 12pm.

Dvader all the codes are in the Online thread, first post, wii codes. Rags is on the last page of the thread. I hope you've laid down some paths BTW!

Meeting WISP the Ghost
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wisp the Ghost is one of the special visitors that will come in your town.

He comes on a RANDOM day in the week and never twice the same week.
He will be the only special visitor in your town that day, so if you had 
another visitor in your town that day, do not bother looking for him at night.
His arrival will be announced by you finding an item in your town: The Empty 
Lamp.
 He comes after 8.00 pm, and you will find him in the South area of the 
town.
Some people said South-East, but this is incorrect. He can be anywhere along 
the sea-shore. You will not see him at first, but "hear a voice" instead. 
Well, actually you will have a dialogue box open spontaneously while walking 
along the shore. The "voice" will ask you to "come closer" so make a few steps 
north, until you "hear the voice" again. Immediately after Wisp will 
materialize, and you need to go and talk to him.

(Get his lamp and go to your attic)

He will then ask you to choose between:
1. De-weed the town
2. Smash Roaches
3. Give me stuff
4. Never mind.

If you choose option 3, you will then be able to choose between:
1. Furniture
2. Clothes
3. Hats
4. Accessories
5. Nothing


WISP WILL NOT APPEAR THE NEXT DAY AFTER YOU FOUND THE LAMP. If you did not 
find him that day, you will need to wait until next time that you find another 
Empty Lamp in your town.

 Have you actually opened your gates? You should be opening them whenever you play. More likely for the game to hook us up. 

Why don't you pre-arrange a meeting, we can all get online at the same time and it should connect us. For the people you've registered, do you have any hollow hearts next to them at all?

Check to make sure you entered the codes right.

 As always, I will have to check when I get home... a meetup would be rad, but it might be hard to arrange since I'm usually not home till 6 or 7 my time, and I don't typically start in with the games till I've made dinner.

 Best thing to do is to shout out on GGWeekly with someone in your timezone.

 Yeah, I hate Anchovy. Little bastard embedded himself in Fortress. I complained about him being "smelly" at the town hall but he still wouldn't leave. He just hoarded all the pinball machines of the world and would never give me one. Also he lived in the ass end of town which was impossible to get to without much drudgery. Also he ripped me off during Festivale with the sweets game. 

Ravenprose sent me the Grape Ape - Violet. Thank God she left quickly!

Thanks for showing up guys, nice gifts.  I tried out the egg setup GG gave me, nice having a themed room. So I played for about an hour and a half after you guys left and then my Wii got disconnected from wifi and I lost all my progress. STUPID FUCKING CRAP. I hate this, its the thing I hate most in gaming, when I lose progress. I almost stopped playing, but I tried to redo what I did. Still i lost all sorts of roads I made, my redecorated house, insects I found, the fossils changed. Stupid game.

Later I went to town to get my hair done... I ended up with some horrible blue haircut, I cant even look at myself, ahhh!

Cant wait to see what happens tomorrow.
