    King Blackthorn has requested the assistance of Detective Thorpe in discovering a solution to the problem in the fields of Skara Brae.

    Please visit Thorpe in his office in Serpent’s Hold. This event can be done at any time between now and early on Thursday, November 1st. For more details on the Investigator system, consult the EM Website.

    A small hint for some of you having trouble locating Giri: question Aila a little more thoroughly - she may have more to say on the scholar.

    Thank you ! Seems to work just fine. Although Giri is very hard to talk to. I got him to respond to just one word. Dunno if there are more keywords for that drunkard or not. :) He did point me in the right direction though. Thanks again for checking and fixing things. ;)

    After the one malfunction, I went through and reset all of them and tested it - they should be good to go. I think you were the only one to run into the problem, Bytor ;)

    That being said...at some time today some of the ingredients that you will be sent to find will "dry up", making it impossible to finish the mission in its entirety. Tonight it will end completely. There is such a thing as "partial points" for incomplete reports though ;)

    Perhaps I am confused a little. The book in Thorpe's Office said, 2 sets of ingredients turned in or learned. I went with the learned part in my report. Was I supposed to turn in the ingredients also ?

    I tried to run thru it the day it was posted, but ran into a roadblock talking to Aila. I had little time that evening to report it. I figured it would take a "expert" to lead us to the next person...but thankfuly, I found it fixed the next day....

    I'm hoping that my book turned out readable this time.
    I did not do anything differant from all the times before.

    Thanks

    Points are finally updated, and an entry explaining the point breakdown was posted.

    I apologize for any confusion with this one - I wasn't sure how to score it due to so many not mentioning a pretty key part in their reports. I'm assuming they skipped over it by mentioning one of the keywords early, and didn't think to bring Giri and muffins when he asked (or simply thought Giri should "take his muffins and shove them" as one report put it). In the end I gave everyone nearly full credit, but added an extra point to those who DID find everything.

    Also, I believe there will be a few promotions. There is going to be slight change to how promotions are done, which will be announced as soon as I can pick Adris' brain about it.

    Thank you. Looking forward to my second promotion :)

    I thought he needed a drink cause he said : "Eh ? HELLO ! Why are you yelling ? Come for a drink ? Thats why all the bottles are in the picture.

    I had no idea at end he wanted muffins you sly dog. :) I will have to pay much more attention in the coming investigations.
