Story Line

Postby Bunniekinns » Mon Mar 12, 2018 11:45 pm

I was curious to find out who actually follows the story line. I have completely stopped reading it. I didn’t find it interesting or even helpful. It’s a great idea but maybe it could be more intregal to the game. Has anyone found pleasure or benefit from this portion of PB?

I found it entertaining sometimes.

The storyline does lead to the requests in the bottom slot of the trading post, which sometimes provided additional incentive to build the latest mill or level up a character to buy a recipe.

I think my favorite story section was the part where all the other characters were trying to steer the Wesley-Sita romance along.

Actually, I did. Especially during the early parts of my PB experience. It kept the whole idea of re-creating an island that Keani's father and mother had built but had gone to ruin. And the 'other' players contributed to it, I found it enjoyable, and was sad when it finally came to an end. I'm enjoying re-living it on my second island, and spending more time paying attention to it.

Some of them worked a lot better than others. There was an early one producing several orders for items needed by neighbor islands to rebuild after a hurricane that seemed pretty apt.

For me, Wesley the wedding planner was pretty silly and went on too long. I think it was mostly there to make sure we built the florist.

I really liked the segment where they were helping Pike regain his treasure so they could use it to ransom Clara's brother (or something like that).

I thought the Finn pineapple juice stand segment from the last update was pretty lame, especially as it started out talking about a lemonade stand. I never understood how they got from one to the other.

Am I the only person still hoping for Wesley to turn out to be Finn's older brother?

I never thought about that, but it's possible. ;)

Abosolutly! That’s the first thing that occurred to me when they introduced it. I have been disappointed that they haven’t yet expanded on that element. Not the reveal, but just more leading hints. But then maybe I read too much into it ;)

I don't remember any hints in that direction. I think I would have a hard time swallowing that concept.

Finn does have parents, if they had another son they would be aware of it already.
