Re: Text Adventuring

The book you received does not weigh all that much, but yet it feels quite heavy.
You gently touch the book cover, as if you're afraid it'll turn to dust in your fingers.

Carefully, you open it, and page through it.
All the pages are blank. Not even finger prints or dog ears.

Angrily you exclaim: "What is this? How am I supposed to use this?"

Suddenly, the book starts to vibrate, and it flutters through its pages by itself.
It stops at a certain page near the front of the book, and words appear.

It reads: "I am the book that holds all the answers about the puzzles you have encountered and will encounter in your adventure. If the author knows it, I will know it.
If you also would like to know, all you have to do is pick me up, and ask out loud. Just as Rapkin the Time Wizard has instructed you.

I will then answer using these pages.

You are allowed to ask me one question per thread page.
Questions do not accumulate over time, nor do you get extra questions for pages already completed.
If you choose not to ask anything before page end, your question will be gone.

I have not counted this explanation as a question for this page."

You think for a moment, letting the words on the page sink in, and wonder what is stumping you at this moment.
Then you ask the book:

"How can I get the note from the falcon?"

The pages flutter once again, and stop somewhere in the middle of the book.
Words appear on the page, and they read:

"YOU cannot. The falcon distrusts you, since you are Levi's follower.
Instead, the falcon is trying to deliver a message to your aide, who is not part of Levi's army.
The reason why the falcon has not delivered the message yet, is because it is confused by your aide's disguise.
A disguide which your aide will not remove willingly in your presence.

Step out of the room to let your aide lure the falcon."

The book slams shut in your hands. The letters on the cover glimmer, and you feel its power go to rest.

Re: Text Adventuring

Fascinating...

Ask Red how he is with birds. Ask him to see if the Falcon will give him the note. Then step out of the room.

 

#404 2019-07-22 05:45:08

Re: Text Adventuring

You stick the Walkthrough book in your ever expanding inventory, and call your friend.

"Hey Red! How are you with birds?"

Red stands there for a moment, not understanding your intention.

"I was wondering whether you could try to lure the falcon, and get the note?
I have a feeling it's you that the bird is seeking!" You explain.

Red nods, and motions you to leave the falconry. Which you do, obviously.

"Wait until I call you!" Red says to you.

You go down the stairs a little ways, far enough to be out of sight, but not too far to not be able to overhear.

You hear the Orc move around, and set his helmet down on the floor.
The falcons start screeching exitedly, as if they all know Red.
You hear the flapping of falcon wings, and a piece of paper rustle.

Red mumbles a little to himself, and hums agreeingly.
Then, you hear him pick up his helmet, and you wait for him to call you back up.

Red appears above you, at the top of the stairs, and starts decending.

"You no peek?" He asks you, which you confirm.
"We need make haste." He says.
"Ichy coming with help, note said. Big battle will start."

Red follows you down the stairs, until you reach the corridor below.

#405 2019-07-22 23:14:12

Re: Text Adventuring

Ask Red if he thinks we have time to try to get our way to that island before the battle starts. If not, are we to be a part of it or hide out?

 

#406 2019-07-27 10:20:40

Re: Text Adventuring

"I think we should check out the island in the middle of the lake." you say to Red.
"I think there might be an important clue to where we need to go! Do you think we've enough time before the battle starts?"

Red cocks his head, as if confused, then he speaks:

"There no island in lake. Just water. Me boat there often."

You react:
"I noticed an island on Spinsel's portrait, see?"

You lead your helper down the corridor to show him the painting.
You point out the island painted in the background.

Red leans in to inspect the painting, and appears to be pondering.

"Maybe island gone? Or maybe painter made it up?"
Red shrugs as he states this.

"Anyway, going on lake is dangerous. Goblins going to cross soon."

"Could the island be invisible?" You ask.

"Water would go around it." Red responds.

You think for a moment on how to proceed, as going on the lake (swimming, I suppose your idea was?) proves too dangerous at this time.

"Should we wait until the battle is over? Hide somewhere, maybe?"

Red shakes his head.
"Bad idea. Levi will come and blow troops away. Lead horde to victory. We need to distract him during battle."

This sounds logical to you, to some extent...

Re: Text Adventuring

Hmmm, gotta think on this one. Leave for camping tomorrow, only 5 days, so you'll have some time.

Thinking we should get Levi down into the tunnels where he can't hear, see or be warned about the Goblins. He'd be distracted by the runes on the walls.

 

#408 2019-07-29 04:29:38

Re: Text Adventuring

You turn your head both ways to see if you see Levi anywhere, but he's not here.
You try to say the password to the statue again, but nothing happens. Just Red snickering inside his helmet.
You sit down in front of the statue.

Re: Text Adventuring

"What's so funny?" You ask your friend.
"It funny, because it true! You smell badly!" Red replies, snickering some more.

You look down at yourself, and despite you having donned clean clothing, your robe is still covered in dragon swine muck, not to mention your face and hands.
You can see the fun in the situation, so you chuckle about it, and move on.

#411 2019-08-05 14:18:32

Re: Text Adventuring

A fowl joke to play. smile

Let's go find Levi and make him smell foul by going through the trap door.

 

#412 2019-08-12 04:20:56

Re: Text Adventuring

You walk to the library, and check inside.
"Levi? Are you here?" You ask to no one in particular.

There's no answer. Just the ruckus of some Orcs playing keepaway with a copy of "Hoppy the Hare finds a rabbit's foot".

You continue past the paintings, towards the great hall.
As you walk the corridor, you look out the window.
It's getting dark, but you can just make out little row boats leaving the opposite shore.

You reach the side entrance to the great hall.
The Orc guarding it is standing in a corner, facing away from you. He's relieving himself.

You take the opportunity to finally look inside the great hall.
The party has died down somewhat. Most Orcs are just lounging about the room now, drinking some sort of frothy alcohol, eating fried fowl and bread rolls.
Some are playing dwarf toss with servant trolls.

In the back of the room, near the enormous window, you see a few teachers tied to chairs.

Before you can enter, the guard Orc grabs your collar, and throws you back into the corridor.
"NO!" He yells at you, looming over you as you scramble to your feet.

Attracted by the commotion, Levi descends the spiral staircase.
"What is happening?" He says, demanding an answer.

The Orc just points at you, and Levi looks at you.
"Have you found anything?" he asks you.

"Yes." You say. "I've found an entrance to the secret tunnels! I thought you might want to take a look at them!"

For a brief moment, Levi's face shows surprise, but he quickly regains his composure.
"Oh really? That's marvelous!" He exclaims. "Show it to me at once!"

You lead Levi to the Goblin's Shack, telling Levi about the trap door, and the exit underneath the Falconry you weren't able to open from the other side.

You enter the pig sty, and open the door. Levi asks you to lead the way, to make sure you're not trying to fool him.

You climb down, and alight your wand with your fire spell.
Levi turns himself into wind, and blows himself down the hatch. The sudden gust slams the hatch shut behind him.

Red was following, of course, but got shut out of the tunnel when Levi blew in.

#413 2019-08-12 14:59:21

Re: Text Adventuring

Noted about the Falcon entrance. lol
Have a feeling that the closed hatch with Red outside will mask any sounds.

Take Levi to see the runes. Take it slow and tap the walls again. Explain that you are checking to make sure you didn't miss anything the first time you walked through because you weren't looking for runes at that point. Suggest that Levi search one wall while you search the other.

 

#414 2019-08-19 08:33:55

Re: Text Adventuring

You make your way down the narrow earth tunnel, checking the walls along the way for any secrets you might've missed the first time around. You find nothing of interest.

Levi, refusing to walk in the dirt, stays in his windy form until you reach the opening to the paved part of the tunnel.

You point out the runes on the wall to Levi, and explain that these might be the key to a puzzle.

Levi takes a long look at the runes, feels them, and blows his wind spell at each of them, but nothing happens.

Re: Text Adventuring

Continue to stall Levi. "Shouldn't a rune do something if you hit it with the matching spell?"

 

#416 2019-08-25 09:08:08

Re: Text Adventuring

"I've been wondering about that!" You say to Levi, as you watch him cast his spell. "Shouldn't the rune react to their matching element? The ones inside the potions room did..."

Levi gives you an annoyed look, as if this is beneath him, and thinks it over.

"Is this the exact way you solved the puzzle upstairs?" He asks.
"Spinsel liked elemental puzzles, but he wasn't known for his love of variety."

You remember what you did last time, and answer:
"No, I had to fill dimples of some sort. I haven't noticed any dimples around here though."

You take a look around the walls and floors, but you really don't see any holes to fill.

Re: Text Adventuring

Go back to the tunnel with dirt floors to see if it's just dirt over pavement.

 

#418 2019-08-26 03:44:41

Re: Text Adventuring

Too subtle...

You step back into the dirt tunnel, and dig into the hard, compacted earth that makes up the floor.
After a few minutes, you see that's all there is. Dirt and rocks. There isn't any pavement buried underneath.

"What are you doing, boy?" Levi says to you, slightly raising his voice.
"Is this all you have found so far? Perhaps I was wrong putting my faith in you!"

(I just typed this out real quick. The inventory and such still applies.)

 

#419 2019-08-26 09:02:43

Re: Text Adventuring

Tell him you were assuming the dimples would be on a floor. Then go back to the rune and look on the ceiling.

 

#420 2019-08-31 12:48:19

Re: Text Adventuring

You tell Levi you assumed the dimples would be in the floor again, and you direct your attention towards the ceiling.

Levi, losing his patience, yells at you:
"You mean to tell me this is all you've found so far?
Stop wasting time, and do as I have told you!
Next time, I will not tell you again!"

With that, he turns himself into a storm, and slams you into the wall.
He blows back through the dirt tunnel, and out the hatch.
You can hear the hatch slamming open, and its planks break to splinters.

You slump down on the floor, and wait for the stars to stop spinning around your head.
