[EM Event] Sleuths hunt for eggs early!

Discussion in 'UO Sonoma' started by Lord Exmortis, Apr 1, 2011.

  1. Daniel crept into the hall at Serpent’s Hold quiet as a mouse. His students, chatting among themselves, didn’t even notice his arrival until he spoke. Sonoma’s junior sleuths were ready and eager for another lesson, but before we could get into that, Daniel had a few promotions to announce. Because of their dedication, Queen Mum, Lady Queen Elf Sandy and Jocelyn were each promoted to the rank of “Flatfoot”, an honorary title to be sure! Each received a sash bearing their title. Congrats to each of them.


    Our detective activity for the night was a simple assignment… find 10 colored eggs where one would not expect to find eggs. Daniel continued…

    “You might say eagles lay eggs, but you would expect to find eggs on birds, you might say snakes and alligators lay eggs, again you expect it.”

    Our minds went racing… eggs… eggs… eggs… where does one find eggs that would not be expected. Bears? No eggs… Dragons… dragons lay eggs… but you would expect that… hmmm… bunnies someone said. AHHA!! Vorpal bunnies are rumored to have colored eggs. Soon we found ourselves inside the farmer’s pens on the south side of Moonglow Island. Sleuths began planting the special green thorns and before we knew it we had vorpal bunnies running everywhere. As amateur detectives we had to work hard to catch and slay the bunnies, but soon enough we found our eggs.


    A tired bunch, we headed back to the hall to continue our sleuth training with a decoding lesson. Daniel passed out the notes, each with the same coded message.


    We had to put our heads together for this one, but eventually we had it spelled out:

    “The most important lesson I learned at the Encyclopedia Magika School or Alchemy was “never lick the spoon”.

    An important bit of wisdom for all.


    Daniel concludes the lesson with a reminder that next week’s lesson will involve horses and will be meeting that the Britain racetrack. Until next time, I bid thee farewell and safe journey.
