Arrows and Bullets

The arrows and bullets used at the Amazon River can be made, or bought using the Amazon coins - a roleplay 'currency'.

You can obtain Amazon coins by collecting items and trading them at the trading table in Rio Tapajos.  Amazon coins have no relation to Linden Dollars (L$) - they are there simply to enhance and enrich roleplay.  You cannot buy Amazon arrows or bullets on marketplace - nor should you ever pay for Amazon bullets or arrows using Linden Dollars (L$).  The only 'currency' in use at the Amazon is the 'in character' Amazon coins.

You can make arrows or bullets for free using the workbench provided.

Plus, this provides you with countless new Roleplay opportunities. here are two examples:

Kidnap a raider and ask for ransom to be paid in bananas or arrowsHave freshly recruited members of your group collect items that can be exchanged into coins

Trading system HUD improvements and more

Please check here for the trading system. It offers a whole set of new roleplay options. Also pleae not that the HUD is now able to be set to "animal" mode, as announced here.

[14:00] YT Recreant: Hello and thank you for coming.....

Exploring: The Tricky Monkey

The weather was warm and humid and I swatted at bugs as I trudged through the jungle, birdsong filling the air.  In time I came upon a rough track. As I strode forward a chill ran through me - half concealed in the undergrowth a huge snake regarded me with its pitiless eye. I stepped carefully around it, fearing a strike.

Moving carefully onwards, I paused to admire a colony of frogs, hopping amongst the lily pads. I was tempted to catch one, but remembered that many of the amphibians here secrete a poison from their skin so contented myself with a snap for my journal.

Further along I noticed a curious arrangement of pillars - half concealing a strange figurine. My interest was piqued and I stepped closer to investigate.

A close view revealed some monstrous native deity, perhaps a Monkey God. As I studied the statue I seemed to hear a voice, a voice that required an answer to a most tricky riddle - and I knew that if I solved the riddle some gift would be given to me. But what, oh wha…
