Have I taken you to Karamja yet? It's a really nice, yet warm place, to be in. It's a jungle with various types of animals and creatures. The people there are rather ... simple, if I may say so. They live in huts made of what looks like round, hollow poles, with thatched roofs. For a while now I've been pretty much living in the south-east part of Karamja mainland. There's a village not far from the area called Shilo. It has a bank, a river with salmon and trout, a bank, a slayer master and a gem mine. I go there when I need to restock on something. The area I "live in" is called Herblore Habitat. Sounds stupid as herblore is not a living creature, and habitat is a place with living beings. One being though is Papa Mambo. He's the local witchdoctor. I don't remember his initial reason for being there, but he sells tools and seeds to be used in the area. South of him, sort of fenced in by this giant vine system, is a small farming area with patches for herbs, flowers, a bush and a fruit tree. There's also a compost bin, habitat construction area, a funny little leprechaun who, like all other leprechauns, stores tools, and ... oh, yes. There's a zombie who works like a local farmer. He takes care of crops for a small payment. There's also a man there who is an expert on jadinkos. The harmless type of jadinko. Their lair were recently discovered and there are aggressive mutated jadinkos. I heard they can easily kill any skilled fighter.
Lately I've been farming herbs, flowers and bushes while catching jadinkos. There are a large variety of these harmless jadinkos. There are common ones, that are always around. All other types, such as carrion, diseased, igneous, need a special combination of flowers, bushes, fruit trees and habitat construction to show. I should add that jadinkos look like oversized lizards. Not the lizards in the Kharidian desert. Those are more crocodile-like. These are smaller and much slimmer. They come in different colours, and when caught, leave behind different types of vines that can be used for herblore. Sometimes they carry seeds with them. I currently have tons of different herb seeds and a small variety of flower seeds.
I should mention that the different jadinkos are caught in two different ways. Three of them are caught by tracking them in the southern-most area. Now... tracking is... booooring. Thankfully they're stupid enough to move in the same route over and over. Trapping is much more fun. It's also a much faster method as you can catch several jadinkos at once, opposed to only one when tracking. I also use a scentless potion when trapping as it removes my own scent from the area. It supposedly reduced failed traps. I can't really tell as it seems to be the same at all times. But it doesn't hurt to use them.
I was at it again yesterday. I have a set a minimum goal for each day. Either 100 trackables or 200 trappables. But the past few days I changed that as I was able to keep the interest of two different jadinkos at once. Carrion, a trappable kind, and diseased, a trackable kind. I decided to do 50 diseased and 100 carrion. But I went well over my daily goal yesterday. Roughly 500 jadinkos resulted in grade 95! Just two grades left for the immediate goal. But I'm honestly thinking of going all the way and become a master of hunting.
I'll get going on drawings later. Itried but they turned out badly. I have that shield to show off too.
