I've been fighting and pickpocketing my way through the Crimbokutown Toy Factory for the last days. I got the outfit, the BittyCar SoulCar and some blind-packed capsule toys.

I will be offline until the next year, so I left my surplus plastic ingots (some) and eletrical thingamabobs (one) in the clan stash. Get them out and spent them before Crimbo is over!

Starting from the 1st of February, I won't be around much for eight weeks. In case that current Hobopolis run ends in that timeframe, here are the boss items I already have:

Frosty's hat
Hodgman's porkpie hat

Frosty's arm
Frosty's nailbat
Ol' Scratch's pichfork
Zombo's shoulder blade

Chester's bag of candy

Oscus's garbage can lid
Hodgman's garbage sticker
Hodgman's harmonica
Hodgman's metal detector
Ol' Scratch's ash can

Hodgman's lobsterskin pants
Oscus's dumpster waders
Oscus's flypaper pants
Chester's cutoffs

Frosty's carrot
Ol' Scratch's manacles
Oscus's pelt
Chester's moustache

Oscus's neverending soda

Every other drop I'll happily take!

As for me, I'm lacking:

Hodgman's almanac
Hodgman's cane
Hodgman's lucky sock
Hodgman's metal detector
(and the other Hodgman items requiring a quicker run than we usually do.)

Frosty's arm

Zombo's shoulder blade
Zombo's skull ring

Frying Pan Is there a Turtle Tamer in the house...?

Do we have an active TT in the clan at the moment?

I've acquired two slabs of sponge that I would love to have armorcrafted into a sponge helmet and a spongy shield. I would provide all ingredients as well as a Mon Tiki to counter the heat of the forge.

Somebody please kill Zombo; I don't seem to have the knack in this incarnation. Once he's gone, I can probably handle Hodgman, unless someone else wants to take him on.

Both Zombo and Hodgman are down. Pushing Muxie and Muscle to the limit did the trick against Zombo. "Hypnotize Hobo" killed Hodgman nicely.

I would love to get

Frosty's snowball sack
Zombo's skullcap
Wand of Oscus
Ol' Scratch's stovepipe hat
Hodgman's varcolac paw

in this order, but I have no idea how many items I am entitled to.

My preferences, in no particular order:

Frosty's snowball sack
Hodgman's varcolac paw
Oscus's neverending soda

This is, I believe, a recap of what people have expressed a wish for:

Frosty's snowball sack - Soeren/1 and Stan
Zombo's skullcap - TPlunkette and Soeren/2
Hodgman's varcolac paw - Stan and Soeren/5
Wand of Oscus - Soeren/3
Ol' Scratch's stovepipe hat - Soeren/4
Oscus's neverending soda - Stan
Hodgman's lobsterskin pants - nobody
Oscus's garbage can lid - nobody
Chester's cutoffs - nobody
Frosty's old silk hat - nobody

Citizen James, do you have any wishes to add to the list?

I already have all of the above, so I'll take leftovers or wad equivalents.

Stuff I lack:
Frosty's arm
Zombo's ring
Hodgeman's garbage sticker
Hodgeman's harmonica
Various speed run items.

I could also use a copy of hodgeman's 3rd journal if anyone has a spare.

I have extra copies of the crimbco employee handbooks from a few years back if anyone wants to make me an offer. Unused books seem to be tradeable.

Saint James, I've got Hodgmans 3rd journal, and I won't use it at the moment.

It's selling at the mall for around 240K at the moment. You're a clanmate: what would you say about 150K?

I realize in my original recap I'd conflabulated Zombo's skull ring with his skullcap (which I already have). So, like Citizen James, I don't actually need any of these items. I think it would be simplest to distribute the items to those who need them, and split the unwanted items between me and James. This gives four items to Soeren, and two to each of the rest of the participants.

Frosty's snowball sack - Soeren
Zombo's skullcap - Soeren
Hodgman's varcolac paw - Stan
Wand of Oscus - Soeren
Ol' Scratch's stovepipe hat - Soeren
Oscus's neverending soda - Stan
Hodgman's lobsterskin pants - TPlunkette
Oscus's garbage can lid - TPlunkette
Chester's cutoffs - Citizen James
Frosty's old silk hat - Citizen James

I will wait to see if you all agree, or if anyone has an alternate suggestion.

Works for me. There will need to be a brief delay in payment as I am currently in Ronin (unless there is a workaround for that in trades)

No problem. I'll send you the book as a gift, and you open it and pay me once you are out of Ronin - it will come as a nice surprise to me...

My priority choices:
Hodgeman's harmonica.

(I would want Zombo's ring too, but Tootsie called it first and defeated Hodgeman)

Anything else randomly assigned (or equivalent wads)

So:
Zombo's skull ring - Tootsie & St James
Zombo's shoulder blade - Tootsie & Stan
Ol' Scratch's stove door - Stan
Chester's Aquarius medallion - Stan
Hodgman's harmonica - St James

Chester's moustache
Hodgman's porkpie hat
Ol' Scratch's ash can
Oscus's pelt
Ol' Scratch's infernal pitchfork
Frosty's nailbat
Zombo's grievous greaves

Anyone else want to tackle an equitable distribution? I hate to be greedy but we all have fewer and fewer items we actually need (and some of them overlap). As far as the extra stuff, I'm fine with each of us getting an equal number of items, but you guys may feel differently. Stan did defeat all the bosses, so he may wish to claim more of the loot.
