FFFW N5: Danylo

One day Danylo sat down to play Oregon Trail, a classic from the early 90s. It’s a strategic game where you need to get to the Oregon safely. Of course when Danylo sat down to play, he thought that he is going to be able to do it with minimum loss, but he was proven wrong further into the game. He named himself ribchinski (classical username for him) and named his 4 partners the following : Jack, Mason, Emily and Micah. He bought good amount of loot for his travels and set off. At the first river Micah got bitten by a snake. Danylo bought a ferry for 5$ across the river. On the next river Mason broke his arm. This river was 4 feet deep so naturally Danylo thought that he could roll the wagon across the river. But he was proven wrong, because the wagon got destroyed, Micah drowned with 5 oxen. Danylo was mad. Then danylo passed two forts. He didn’t buy anything because he had enough of everything. During the trip through the 2 forts, Jack and Mason both broke their arms. Then Mason’s arm healed and Danylo made more haste to get to oregon. Then Mason broke his leg. Danylo stopped going so fast so Mason’s leg could heal. At the next landmark, Mason and Jack died from infection, and Danylo and Emily were the only one left. At the second to last fort Emily got bitten by a venomous snake and died. Danylo was the only one left and he was scared of dying. Because he was afraid, he rested for a week every time he became ill. By the in-game november, Danylo got to the Oregon.

The game lasted 1 hour and 30 minutes. Of course Danylo was happy that it was over, because he was tired about worrying that people are going to die. Afterwards he took a shower and went to sleep. This is based on a true story.
