    Down a rabbit-hole

    Saturday, April 3, 2010 By EM Seppo
    I almost wish I hadn't gone down that rabbit-hole - and yet- and yet- it's rather curious, you know, this sort of life! - Alice

    Fainecursed as she rode through the woods donning a cloak darker than her mount. Everything was falling apart, all her plans coming to naught. Ever since the failure to take over Orobas' castle, it had been one ill-fated news followed by another.

    Now, with her allies charged with conspiracy and treason - dragged in front of a common court, she was shunned by even those who might have otherwise held sympathy towards her cause. Even at the spring festival, she was mocked and laughed at. Only one, Lady Kat, spoke in favor.

    The hooded stranger had lost her aura and appeal.

    It was clear that unless she acted in a manner that would aid her supporters, she would be left with little credibility and even fewer cards.

    These were the thoughts that went through her head as she reached her destination, Yew Court of Truth. Quietly slipping in, she took a seat in the back, maintaining a low profile. Scanning the room she saw some familiar faces, mostly of foolish Gargish supporters. She sighed as she judged Erlington, the presiding judge, to be not the corrupt type. She was running out of ideas!

    It was only at the end of the proceedings of that day, she noticed Erlington calling out for the girl whose name she had learned earlier to be Alice.

    Must be his daughter!

    As she watched the father and daughter embracing each other, the wheels started turning in her mind.

    Could this be done? And would it work? Hmmm

    And then all the pieces fell in place when Alice ran off saying, Alright I'm off to find the hatter again.

    Faine almost betrayed herself as a short gasp escaped her mouth.

    Could it be? It is not possible! But, how else?

    Standing up hurriedly, she slipped out of the courtroom with a twinkle in her eye, going down the direction in which the girl had wandered off

    Saturday, April 3, the Court of Truth was filling with spectators, jurors and the defense and prosecution teams for the ongoing trial when a distressed Judge Erlington entered the courtroom.


    He had just received some 'disturbing news' regarding his daughter, Alice.


    Then the Judge pointed to a copy of a ransom note he had received:


    The ransom note read: 'I have your daughter, Alice. Rather, let us just say that she went down a rabbit -hole that she should not have.

    If you wish to lay your eyes on her again, then drop all charges against the supporters of Keep Britannia Clean. The have not partaked (sic) in any illegal activities and should not be prosecuted for having an opinion different that the current rulers of Britannia.

    DROP ALL CHARGES, or else Alice will be lost forever.'

    Judge Erlington then announced that the trial proceedings for today would be postponed, and he had sent word to Queen Dawn, seeking assistance in rescuing Alice.

    The judge told us, 'Alice always talked about this dream she used to have, but I never paid attention to it She once mentioned a rabbit hole near Vesper.' The crowd immediately volunteered to search the Vesper area for clues. Jinx soon announced there was a rabbit hole and a white hare just east of the Vesper/Minoc area moongate. The White Hare, who was 'late for a very important date', also said, 'You're here for the Tea Party? You're early! The party starts tomorrow!'



    from goldenbrewtavern.com, an update on Down A Rabbit-Hole by EM Seppo on this event:

    'Note: Due to technical issues, you will only be able to start the quest today but not finish it. You will have to wait till Monday post-patch to be able to finish it. Although, by Sunday you will be able to do most of the quest.'

    Millie, the rabbit hole is east of the moongate between Minoc and Vesper. There's a book by the hole that tells you what the password is to go down the rabbit hole. Inside there are two doors and you need passwords or you can do the whole storyline. Since there are some who don't want to know what they are, just PM me if you need help. If nothing else, you can have a couple of mine. I did it on each of my characters. Welcome back and I hope you're getting your new home just the way you want it.
