Should we add these in here, or on a separate page? Like that one Johnny Treehugger mentioned above:

Adventures You lose 10 Adventures.
You gain 88 Fortitude.
You gain 46 Mysteriousness.

You gain 47 Sarcasm.
You gain 1,000 Meat."

I say we should add them over here - that seems more fitting. I've tried to edit the template to allow results as input, but I can't get it quite right.Blargh (talk) 09:14, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Wanted: Hod Carrier The Pretentious Artist has come up in the world a bit, and is adding a layer of mud to his dirt-walled hovel.

Minor mistakes

I don't know if this is in-game or an error in copy and paste but the job description and the result of the job are both the same on the "Wanted: Barrel Arranger" job listing near the bottom of the list.--Tombot (talk) 02:45, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Hello, its me again from the terrifying dark future of 2017! I just noticed "that Wanted: Graffiti Transplanter" seems to have the wrong text too, or is that how it is in the game?--Tombot (talk) 22:56, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
