I have been constipated for a couple of weeks, so I finally went to the doctor to see what was wrong. After a few tests, the doctor said "You need more iron"
I replied "I know, I've been riding a fierce pig 10 hours a day, roaming dangerous territory filled with wolves, bears and assasins, all trying to kill me, LOOKING FOR IRON!"
The doctor said, "I was going to say to eat some spinach, but I am sending you to the psychologist instead."
So....how about a distilling process for pumpkins (or some other plant) that produces iron ore?
Or, pick one day of the week for enourmous iron spawn all over the map. Like, I can't even pick a carrot without mining 10 iron deposits to reach the carrot.
