EM Topaz: So along with each dragon is a clue giver. The clue giver will give the location to the next clue in trivia form.
EM Topaz: if you are a baddarse uo player these trivia questions may be too easy for you. If you just started yesterday, bring a friend
Melodie: So, whoever figures out the clue first gets to die first?
Tamais : lol
EM Topaz: Right!
EM Topaz: Ok now some of the dragons are super hard and some of them have been nerfed a little because of the location.
Gwynne: what other facets do you mean Fellucca or Illshenar or Eodon
EM Topaz: That's for you to figure out!
Sphinkter: please can't do puzzles.

EM Topaz: And I will have a surprise waiting at the final location
Epona: a bigger dragon
EM Topaz: Here's the easiest clue for the first location...Ready
EM Topaz: This first location... A Cave west of the dungeon of dragons
Easy peasy Go!
Epona: ok Destard
Ronan: west of Destard?
Tamais : yep there is a mining cave there
Epona: omg...just west of Destard
Vixen Sonoma: there a CDragon inside
After getting my rune book, I joined the others. Going into the cave I met the first dragon and clue giver.
Ronan: that dragon underground? hehe
EM Topaz: TO GET THE LOCATION GIVER TO GIVE THE NEXT CLUE YOU MUST SAY "LOCATION"

Skeptamystic: soooo this isn't a regular event just a crimmy hunt
I hurried home to find the rune book then opened gates for those who didn't have one.
EM Topaz: I love how you all work together
Tamais : lol I just wish I had all the rune books I needed
Gwynne: oh pretty!
EM Topaz: btw you can get a confirmation on most of these npcs if you give the correct answer. I think from here on out they will say "correct" if you are right.
Tamais : ooo good to know
Epona: dungeon Wrong
Location Giver: Correct!
Epona: this one isn't the shrine, wrong dungeon is the next place.The dragon was waiting outside for us.
EM Topaz: You will want to name them in front of the clue giver so she can give you part two of the clue. You have to spell them correct.
Tamais : Trammel Felucca
Tamais : k next stop a city with a moongate on only one facet (this one took some brainstorming to figure out.)
EM Topaz: Let me know when you need a hint
Epona: must be Britain
Gwynne: could be Occlo then
Tamais : Haven
Demoss: or Buc's Fel lol
Location Giver: Correct!
Sphinkter: gotta be Buc's Den Fel
Kristen: no Buc's Den has a Trammel and Fel
Gwynne: she said correct. There is no trammel Buc's gate?
Tamais : now to figure out which one
Gwynne: its Fel Buc's
Gold Rush: den is right

Ronan: Fel side of Buc's?
Epona: sport in history
Tamais : bag ball for the win
Location Giver: Yes, find the court where it is played.

A Shoelace: That would be best drop ever
Tamais : ooo how about a rancid dragon sandwich
Vixen Sonoma: *Looks at the burning Docks and the Deep water and is glad she can swim*
After the last dragon was cleared, we returned to the bag ball court where EM Topaz was waiting.
