With a public holiday yesterday, and with an old friend from Durban finally coming down to visit, I decided to take some people on a tour through the Winelands. Also joining me were my two future housemates, and a new friend of mine: a visiting master’s student from Canada (being the only non-nerd in the group).
Of course, in true nerd style (much to our non-nerd’s bemusement), we did this in the style of a World of Warcraft quest chain:
- Assemble a party of fellow questers. Your fellow party members may be found in Mowbray, Sunningdale and Gordon’s Bay.
- Journey to the Boschendal Wine Estate and acquire 1 Bottle of Fine Red Wine. Completing this quest requires 50 gold.
- Journey to Fairview and acquire 2 Cheese Platters and 1 Loaf of Freshly-Baked Bread. Completing this quest requires 100 gold.
- Prepare a Banquet of the Winelands to feed your party. A Banquet of the Winelands may only be prepared at the Afrikaanse Taalmonument. Party members that spend at least 10 minutes eating and drinking will be Well Fed and will receive the buff “Scribble Big Bang Theory Quotes on Ron’s Car” for 6 hours. (My fault for not washing it!)
I also took everyone to Nederburg and through the Huguenot Tunnel afterwards before the group disbanded. Muchness of fun.
However, when 4 or more of the party members receive the Well Fed/TBBT Car writiing buff, the driver receives an embarrassment debuff which is only cured by having the car washed. XD
