    I Robot

    And with a whirring and a clanking the behemoths awoke and began to move, slowly but surely, on their metal wheels carrying their new directives sealed in dull metal cases...

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    When the Machines Rock

    ...and so they continued in their drive and rumbled on becoming further and further seperated from their home base. Their energy banks were running low as they picked up the first of the things for which they had been expelled from the mother city to search for.

    If machines had souls and emotions these tireless robots would be weeping as they continued their seemingly fruitless struggle, whereas the lucky ones could now return home and they made their way back without fear, pride or any other emotion - following their secondary directive.

    Taken from the EM Website.

    Translated all the above,

    "All work and no play makes Jack a Dull boy" This is repeated over and over....

    *ponders*

    For those who, like me, had to think about this all day despite Seasseragh's broad hint:

    Ignore the binary, just pick out the letters.

    Book 2: SEEK AND REC(O)VER

    Book 3: UNDERGR(O)ND SEEK L(O)ST ITEMS

    Book 4: RETURN L(O)ST (I)TEMS AT ALL C(O)(S)TS

    Looking at screenshots from last month, The red crystal at the entrance just inside the Orc Mines appears to be new!

    Saw the second fiction piece, and guessed maybe some machine was headed back to Exodus dungeon - was nearly right, found a juggernaut near to Blackthorn's castle, and had the most frustrating fight I've had in ages, the damn thing stunned me with almost every hit it got...

    Still it died eventually - and dropped a copy Binary 1. I've no easy way of copying the text out (and know I'd make a mess of typing it again by hand!), so I've left a copy with someone I know can, and I'm pretty sure it will be here fairly soon ;)

    Continueing what Aurelius and Ivyrn discovered I think I see this:

    Book 1: CORE PROGAM OVERIDE

    Book 2: SEEK AND REC(O)VER

    Book 3: UNDERGR(O)ND SEEK L(O)ST ITEMS

    Book 4: RETURN L(O)ST (I)TEMS AT ALL C(O)(S)TS

    Anybody has an Idea what it is these things search (and bring back) - no other loot on them then the books that might give a hint?
