Epona: Happy B day
EM Topaz: Thank you!!
Old Man Lenshire: Happy Birthday
Raven: Happy Birthday
Bug: good evening
Demoss: don't ask how old lol
Salain: Happy Birthday
EM Topaz: It's a few days late but I wanted to have our event on Saturday since that works for everyone
Tamais: just look at as a long birthday celebration
EM Topaz: First I wanna get you started with a little scavenger hunt that I made up for you guys. You can work together or not. That's up to you.
Tamais : hum crimson dragons waiting for us?
Salain: *looks nervous
EM Topaz: but please keep chat kinda quiet so you don't spoil it for others. I have not spawned anything BUT there are things naturally at a few locales so it's not 100% safe
Tamais : laughs
EM Topaz: You will need a book to write your answers in. I have three books here with the clues
you guys ready?
EM Topaz: Let's get this party started! First one back gets a plaque in the reward hall.
Demoss: I'll help someone
EM Topaz: Check the books and...Go! You don't have to do them in order but you need all 10 to win the plaque. Meet you at the end.
Tamais : I'll grab some books and be right back
Stinky Pinky IX: awww, just games? no killing?
Tamais : lol no such luck. Topaz always figures a way to kill us
Stinky Pinky IX: lol
Vixen Sonoma: dang I have to buy a deco tool
EM Topaz: you guys don't have to have a tool you can just say like blue red yellow green whatever.
1. The Queen lives here.
"Hum gargoyle queen." I suggested. ( the wrong answer.)
Salain had the correct answer. "Could it be the hive queen?"
Hue: 2727Salain showed me the armor, "What color is that?"
Finding the hue, it was back to the hall.
The next clue should have been easy. But my mind wasn't working.
When Topaz offered more clues I didn't feel as bad.
2. A creature that has good eyesight in the dark.
We began to brainstorm. "A lich? " Salain suggested.
"Cats have good eye sight." I suggested. We quickly decided that one was not it...too many types of cats.
Topaz gave us a hint, "Well the location is the only place this creature spawns."
"Would say elf," MIchey suggested.
Listening, Em Topaz gave us another clue. "Is not an elf, its a critter that spawns in a specific location and she sees in the dark really well."
That was enough for Michey, "Oh Navery."
Laughing as I opened a gate to the underworld. Once there I showed him Narvery Nighteyes.
Salain: Omg I hate spiders.
Sharing the hue, I teased Topaz, "Topaz that is just mean ."
EM Topaz: what!
EM Topaz: What'd I do!
Tamais : lol the answer to number two, so obvious it was hard
EM Topaz: she is "night eyes" haha
Tamais : lol, I know that is why I can't believe I didn't get it
Michey: suprised someone did not set it up
We ran into a problem with clue number three. EM Topaz forgot we couldn't recall there.
3. A good spot to park a boat...temporarily
Tamais : k do we need a ship?
EM Topaz: you don't need a ship if you have a rune....
Tamais : that answers my question, since the spot I was thinking you can't recall to.
Lilly: but then you won't have a party boat....
EM Topaz: haha i should make a party barge
EM Topaz: well i know you can gate there
We started talking about different spots where you couldn't stay parked for long. They all required a ship. Once again Topaz came to our rescue.
EM Topaz: i might be wrong, Maybe Ican give that one a pass
Tamais : if it is that special dock you can't unless there is a ship there already.
EM Topaz: I think you have to gate out of there to get a gate to there lol. Okay you all may skip #3 just to save time.
Tamais: so it was the sea dock then?
EM Topaz: aye
Lilly: yea you can't recall there. Well we can't recall there. What are we playing?
Tamais : a scavenger hunt
EM Topaz: there is a gate to #3 at the reward hall! Free one!
Tamais : you are sooo sweet
Using the gate , I grab the color id, (1266) but forgot to grab a picture before we returned to the hall for clue number 4.
4. I bet you can't figure out this one out!
"How in the world are we suppose to figure out 4." I commented on chat. No one else had either so we went on to the next clue.
5. Mage, warriors, captains, and one Ethernal meerly lurk here.
This one was an easy one.
"Salain, you know number 5. " I told him. "You passed it while training with Thalia."
Tamais : yes
Running into Lakeshire, I found the tunic in the park
Hue 2498Salain soon joined me and then we were off for the next clue.
EM Topaz: anyone able to finish yet?
EM Topaz: >.<
Tamais : boy I hope not
EM Topaz: lol
Rejoining Michey at the hall. We compared notes. She was missing the dock so we waited while she went to get that one.
6. A good place to res in the underworld.
Tamais : am I right that number 6 is on the way to narvey? Since that is the only rez place I know of.
Michey: no, at the rez area, I can take you. Come.
Michey opened a gate to the volcano and lead us to the stairs that take you up to abyss or down to the underworld.
When I tried to go up I realized I hadn't done the Sacred Quest.
"Oh shoot i can't go there. I've not done the quest yet." I told Michey.
Salain: "Hmm i cant get there either." Salain added.
Michey offered to help both of us get the quest. Since I was suppose to be taking pictures I decided to go ahead and do the others, while she helped Salain. I'd go back and get a picture of that one.
Both 7 and 8 were easy to find.
7. Our Once and Future King's Chair.
8. Our Present King's Chair
Rejoining Salain and Michey, I shared the hues and locations. Then we were off to number 9.
9. Is she a witch or just a crazy old woman?
"Have a rune to the Griz ruins? I cannot find a location book, "Michey asked.
Arriving at Grizelda's location I quickly got the hue .
Then it was back to the hall to try to figure out number four.
EM Topaz: its awefully quiet you guys...
Old Man Lenshire: hehe very quiet
Tamais : hey you said not to help
Topaz: lol I did not! I said no spoilers!
EM Topaz: did you figure out #4?
Tamais : nope
EM Topaz: i will be impressed with whoever figures that one out first
Thalia: whats the clue?
Salain: i think i may know but i dont want to say lol
"Well number four is " I bet you can't figure this one out." I told Thalia.
"Thats the whole clue Tamais?" Thalia asked? "If so, I am disappointed in you. that should leap out at you."
EM Topaz: yup thats the whole clue
Hum, Thalia knew the answer and had found the tunic. She thought I should know also. I read and reread the clue.
NeoFyte: ok whats with the gold plate tunic?
Tamais : hush, that is part of the scavenger hunt
Thalia: don't say it Neo, Tamais should already know where it is.
NeoFyte: ok not telling where I see it.
Thalia gave me another hint. Remember our scavenger hunt. I bet you remember the location. it is one of ours from that hunt."
I still couldn't think of the answer.
Thalia: *hops up and down* you should totally know where Tamais. Want a better clue?
Tamais : yes please
Thalia: your favorite beach, got it?
I started laughing. "Now that one i know Off I went to the casino.
"You better." Thalia replied. "I am pretty much smacking you over the head with clues."
Thalia: thats a pretty good clue though Topaz, very subtle.
Tamais : you are going to have to tell me how you figure it out
Thalia: read the clue again carefully.
I did, knowing the spot the clue made sense, the key word was bet. Back for number 10.
10. Where Topaz gets her Mail.
Em Topaz: bets on who will be the winner? Tamais are you done?
I nodded, "All except number 6 as I haven't completed the quest."
WILLARD: heeh, I got ur back
Sir Patrick: dang
EM Topaz: gasp! shame on you
"Have something for you , Happy birthday " I place her gift next to her. "From all of us."
EM Topaz: Oh my!! Thank you
Tamais : you are very welcome
EM Topaz: Tamais here's the final hint of the day. The heart bubbles are the colors of the tunics
Tamais : ah
WILLARD: my heart bubbles
EM Topaz: No one has turned in a full book
Salain and Michey joined us I sharded the answer for 4 with them and they told me the color for number 6. Writing it down I put my book in her mail box.
Tamais : I'd like you to check mine, i can't be a winner since i didn't go to the one spot. But i think the others are correct.
Michey: I would never have gotten 4 without help
Salain: I'd like mine checked too and there is you food. He put down platters of roast pig.
Tamais : lol he wasn't lazy like I was
Salain: I wont lie I had a little help
Tamais : we all did and that is the idea
EM Topaz: Tamais has turned in a full book everyone
EM Topaz: Salain did 5
WILLARD: im gonna go shut my head in the mail box
Tamais : lol
EM Topaz: Looks like our Winner is Michey!!
Michey: 4 I was lost
Lilly: it is ok we have liquor
Tamais : three cheers for Lady Michey
EM Topaz: Hip Hip Hooray!
Michey: cheers? why is that?
Tamais : because you won even after waiting on slow me
EM Topaz: I am having technical difficulties but lady Michey will have a plaque in the reward hall "Winner of the Birthday Scavenger Hunt"
We stayed a little longer celebrating until EM Topaz had to leave.
