I arrived at RainQueens house 30 minutes before the event as preparations were underway. EM Emile Layne stopped by to see how the prep work was getting on. We then went to the CD Vendor Mall on Umbra Road for the start of the event, RainQueen asked everyone to come on inside and try out the ice rink at the back of the shop, I seem to have done rather well on not slipping! At 6pm RainQueen welcomed everyone for coming - I couldn't even count the amount of people who had turned up! The event began with everyone getting the first clue. You can open the spoilers to read the clues - I used these to keep the post short. Spoiler Clue 1: "Come one, come all and join the fun. Our Treasure Hunt has now begun. You start your journey in the lands of paragons and gypsy bands. Head to a place that's dark and dank. Where fungus grows and all is rank. This cavern also leads to another place but don't go far... you've reached your base." Collect: 3 Bone Piles At the cave to the Twisted Weald the Clue 2 was available! Spoiler Clue 2: "Don't leave these lands. With Honor's aid just venture on - don't be afraid. Your task? To find her resting place. Iola's wife, so far of face. She lies close by the river's side, The music of her Harp a guide. A tribute to her carved in stone. Stands here where she lies all alone." Collect: 3 Chopped Logs This clue was obviously the Gwenno grave near Honor Moongate, There the 3rd clue was available. Spoiler Clue 3: "Adventurer you're doing well, And now its time to bid farewell to Ilshenar. So take the gate to Trammel where you'll meet your fate. Be brave and venture if you dare - You're looking for a pirate's lair. Don't look above but seek below. If you fall down you'll surely know. You've found the place - yes you've arrived. So thank the virtues you're alive." Collect: Tricorne Hat from Provisioners Under Bucaneer's Den lies the Pirate Caves, In there clue 4 awaited. Spoiler Clue 4: "A gentler place is next in line, In fact, you're headed for a Shrine. To Trinsic City first you fly. To find the Shrine that is nearby. A special Shrine with magic power thrice say the word - it lasts an hour." Collect: 2 Peculiar Seeds At the Spirituality shrine saying Om Om Om got you clue 5. Spoiler Clue 5: "From lands of blossom and snowfalls The City of the Empress calls. We loved the Treasures of this place, And most of you recall his face - Ihara Soko he is named The Minister of Trade so famed. A very cultured lot are we - This Center's where you need to be." Collect: Two Bento Boxes At the Tinkers in Zento RainQueen with clue 6 was standing! Spoiler Clue 6: "Make haste my friend, you're running late. You don't have time to sit and wait. And so to Honor Shrine - we hear. The passage to Lost Lands lies near. And fairly close to that you'll find this cave, Although the way's not signed. The Liches of this cave have left - But surely we are not bareft. So if this place all quiet and bare? Peep in the cave ... well if you dare!" Collect: Two of each Necromancy Reagent This location was the old Marcus Forlan cave near Trinsic, Inside rats and ratmen awaited. The ratmen were carrying a little present! A cake! In the corner of the room clue 7 was available. Spoiler Clue 7: "A mighty Queen is your next goal in forests deep you'll find the hole. Thought other queens may plot her fall. She is the Matriach of all. Workers and warriors fill her lair, Her throne room's where you'll find her there." Collect: 20 Zoogi Mushrooms I found clue 8 outside the NE hole to the Solen Cave, Off to the final locations I went! Spoiler Clue 8: "Now the capital is your goal, Where Sherry the Mouse has her hole. You don't have time to nap or snooze. So hurry - there's not a second to lose, Shaft an arrow hits bull's eye. And then dear friends we'll say goodbye." Collect: A plain wooden bow and 10 arrows. This was the final location and was behind the Castle Britannia - The arrow shooting range!
