The fifth quest in the second season of the Interactive Knightmare RPG. The team is Forester, Rachel and Bart.
Session 7 - 22 October 2000
The team is Forester and Rachel
Forester Forester, 19, Nottingham
Treguard My what a dreary place
Treguard And you go into the dungeon unaided? You must have 1 or 2 friends, please call their names now and loudly!
*Rachel magically appears
Treguard Welcome to my humble castle. It isn't much to look at from the outside, but I assure you, it's quite cosy inside. What are your names and where do you all come from?
Rachel Rachel, Durham
Treguard Well, I'm sure you know of the rules and regulations. So you won't need me to repeat them yes?
Rachel no, I'm alright
Forester You can spare us the details.
Treguard Thank You
Treguard Well then, Face the dungeon door and take a bold step forward
*Forester walks forward
Treguard You enter a plain room with four exits. Each exit has a narrow path leading up to it. Above each door is a different symbol.
Treguard This is the hall of choice. You must choose an object to redeem in your quest. Will it be the cup that heals (which some call the chalice), the sword of freedom, the shield of justice or the crown in glory?
Treguard Go through any of the doors and you choose that quest. Stay where you are and you could be assigned a quest not available to you by choice, such as freeing someone, etc.
Rachel What do you think? Mystery quest sounds fun
Treguard It's your choice team but choose quickly and wisely.
Forester Hmm, I'd like the Cup personally.
Rachel Whatever. Let's go for it
*Forester walks through the Cup portal
Treguard Welcome to Level 1 team. Here you have little to worry about, but always be on guard for food and objects you can use on your quest. You are currently on a path which winds through a small garden. At the back is a shed. If you continue along the path, you will eventually come to a portal.
Rachel Do you want to look at the shed or just go?
Forester Go to the shed
*Rachel goes to the shed
Treguard You go to the shed
Rachel Is it locked?
Treguard No. I don't think you'll find anything in there, team.
Rachel we can look
Treguard There is a pitchfork stained with blood in it
Rachel Hmm... would a blood stained pitch fork be any use
Treguard I should leave team, while you still can
Forester Ignore it and carry on.
Treguard Ah. Well, this is a familiar sight. Welcome to the Level 1 clue room. In front of you is a table with some objects on it.
Treguard Around the back walls are three exits and between the doors is a wall monster.
Rachel okay. speak to him Forester
Treguard "Ah. Interesting. A little being enters my domain. I take it that you want information. Well, to earn it, you will be tested."
Treguard Listen team. With 2 correct answers you will get some information about your quest. With 3 correct answers you should call out "I command You" to receive a bonus. Score 1 and you get no information. Score 0 and your quest will end here.
Treguard Here is my first.
Treguard Many followed that musician, But people they were not. All into the river they went. But tell me now, What was the name of the town this musician came from?
Treguard AN ANSWER!
Rachel try the pied piper from Hamlin or whatever
Treguard Truth Accepted
Treguard Here is my second.
Treguard What occurs once in minute, twice in a moment, but never in an hour?
Rachel the letter 'm'
Treguard Truth Accepted
Treguard Here is my third
Treguard How many times can you subtract the number 5 from 25?
Treguard Truth Accepted
Treguard A perfect score. You may learn more.
Treguard "Take Nic Nac Paddy Wak's advice"
Rachel say it then Forester
Forester I command you
Treguard I hear you! "Poisoning others will lead to the poisoning of yourself." I sleep now. But will return again.
Treguard On the table are the following objects.
- A grapefruit
- A bone
- A dagger
- A rope
- A bottle of poison.
Rachel eat the grapefruit?
Forester Put grapefruit in Knapsack
Treguard you put it in your knapsack
Forester Rachel: How about the bone and rope?
Rachel What do you think? I think the bone and the rope
Rachel great minds think alike
Forester Take the bone and rope
Treguard You take them
Rachel Right door?
Forester Go to right hand portal
Treguard You enter a church garden. There are two exits at the back, and a spyglass lies in front of you.
Treguard You've somehow managed to get inside the church. Use the spylass with care.
Forester Pick up spyglass
"Right. Hey you there! I want you to change the combination on the floor puzzle in Level 1. The cocky little so-and-sos just keep on getting past it without a problem. What's the current key to crossing it?"
"Well sir. The code is that A=1, B =2, C=3 and so on. That's quite an impressive key code if I do say so myself."
"No, it's all wrong, listen. I want you to go down to the village and find that elf, what's her name? Oh, well, anyway, she's good at coming up with different combinations.
Get her to change the combination to something really nasty but tell her not to go giving it out to anyone, especially those stupid dungeoneers!
Luckily only a few people know where the elf lives, and she'll be hard to find, so go into the market and find out where this elf is. And hurry!"
"Yes sir, right at once. Erm. Sir?"
"I can see someone looking at us."
Rachel Drop it
Forester Put the spy glass down and jump up and down on it
"Why the impertinence of it. Someone spying on me! Well, keep on looking little thing, you're about to receive something very lovely!"
Treguard You drop it
Rachel and we jumped on it
Treguard A useful piece of eavesdropping team
Forester Go through right portal
Treguard you exit
Treguard You appear to have exited the church, but in front of you is the cemetery. The town hall is at the back, and the only exit is 15 foot high
Rachel hmm... we could climb the tree or use the rope - or both
Forester Yeah I'll go along with that.
Treguard You climb the rope and go through the portal.
Treguard You enter a small market area. In front of you are two stalls. Most of the stalls are starting to pack up. The only exit is at the back
Forester Speak to the people
Rachel yeah, preferably the elvish looking ones
Treguard The man says: "F*ck off. Can't you see I'm busy?"
Rachel use your amazing charm Forester
Treguard Well, that's one person out of the road
Forester Respond with "Hey, you can't say that, this is CITV!"
Treguard What about the woman?
Rachel well, speak to her too then
*Forester speaks to the woman
Treguard "Equipment and supplies at the ready. Ah, hello there young traveller, and what can I provide you with?"
Rachel turn on your charm Forester and ask for info
Forester What do you have to offer?
Rachel chat her up a bit ;)
Treguard Oooh Everything. Goblin Sh*t. Charms. Spells. Objects stolen from Clue Rooms…
Rachel ask about information or finding people
Forester Ask her if she knows anything about Nic nac somebody or Elves
Treguard Nic Nac? Don't know him really
Treguard Well, I know about 167 Elves
Rachel female elf remember?
Treguard A female Elf?
Treguard "Ah, not many people know where the elf lives, but I do. To the "glen" as she calls it, you must know where the entrance is. Go through that door there and admire the reading materials that are available to you. I can say no more."
Treguard You enter a small library with many bookcases. There is an exit just ahead.
Rachel okay, which one do we read??? ask the librarian for a map?
Forester Is there anyone around?
Rachel use the index or glossary
Treguard I think it's a case of looking team
Rachel no, we need to study I think. Let's see what there is
Forester Hmm browse the books
Treguard You pull out one of the books and the case suddenly disappears to reveal a portal.
Rachel ah well, let's try that then.
Forester Take the new exit
Treguard "Capro attack that creature quickly before it destroys both of us!"
Forester Speak to the Elvish woman
Treguard DIE DIE DIE!!
Rachel stop them. or is it a dog?
Forester Throw the bone
Rachel in which case throw a bone
Treguard Quick do something team. You've been mistaken for somebody else
Treguard Tell HER!!!
Rachel explain who we are
Forester Say "We're not here to harm you"
Treguard "A dungeoneer. Ah well, that's different then. To prove that you are who you say you are, you must be put on trial.
Treguard The judge is Logan naturally. As I don't have any sense of Judgment, whereas Logan does as he worked in the courts in his former life. Stand and be judged!
Treguard I'm Vestala by the way
Forester Ask her about a causeway puzzle.
Treguard BE JUDGED NOW!
Rachel hi :)
Forester Offer the dog the bone
Treguard The wolf catches the bone and goes back to his owner.
Rachel 'good doggy'. hehe
Treguard "I see that Logan has decided that you are innocent. He usually can be bribed easily, so well done on that account. As for your business here. What do you want?"
Forester Ask for some food
Treguard I have none
Treguard Wait. I have an apple. There you go
Rachel thank her
Treguard You put the food in your knapsack
Forester Ask about the causeway puzzle code.
Rachel and be very polite
Treguard The causeway?
Treguard "Well I'm not actually supposed to give it to you, but since you have been honest with me, and you are on a quest for truth, I will tell you. On the board, you will see a letter on each tile (which happens to be hexagons).
Treguard What you must do is look at your keyboard and shove the Code, sort of up and to the right slightly.
Treguard For example, If I say F, then you have to stand on a R on the board. But, and here's the hard part. If I say 3, then you must go to the bottom of the column and find a C on the puzzle.
Treguard Remember that you can only step on hexagons that touch each other. The code is J 6 K X N The semi-colon IS actually part of the code. Well, good luck. And Farewell.
Treguard 30 secs left in this room
Forester Exit the room
Treguard You appear to be in a puzzle room. An exit is located on the other side of the board. I just hope that you have the combination.
Treguard Time = 40 secs
Treguard you are spelling a word remember
Rachel It's PUNISH
Treguard Time = 20
*Rachel jumps up and down
Treguard You make it to the other side. Well done team. You have reached the end of Level 1 and are now ready to progress to Level 2.
Rachel go into the 'thing's' mouth?
Rachel ooh, a banana (I think)
Treguard You slide down the snake and end at the bottom. A cloud of pink mist cushions your fall, or so you think. In front of you on the floor is a banana while under an arch is a portal.
Forester Take the banana
Treguard Welcome to Level 2, travellers. Here you will find foul creatures which will try to stop you and devour you. I suggest you try and find the Level 2 clue room. You're going to need all of the supplies that you can get.
Treguard You take the banana
Rachel it's a pretty room btw
Forester Peel the banana and put it in the knapsack saving the skin.
Treguard You do that but keep the skin in your knapsack
Forester No I want to hold onto it.
Treguard Ok. Now what?
Rachel yeah, keep a hold of it. it could be useful
Treguard A monster comes up behind you
Treguard ARGH A ZOMBIE!!!!
Rachel drop the skin?
Forester Yep drop the skin and run
Treguard You emerge on a very small piece of land which juts out onto a frozen lake. Behind the table is a portal. A man stands looking at you expectantly
Rachel say 'hello' to him, or maybe 'good evening'
Forester Say Hello Merlin
Treguard "Ah, hello there. Please give me your name, and perhaps also mine. It's… Egbert? No, definitely not. Do you know it?"
Rachel we're Rachel and Forester and is he Merlin?
Forester Say "My name is Forester and this here is my humble slave I mean team mate Rachel"
Treguard "Yes. Merlin, of course! That's it. I'm sure that you're going to want some help. Well, I can only give you advice on one of the objects. Which other object you take is up to you. Your tip is: "Divine Power rules over all"
Forester Look at table
Rachel yeah, what's there?
Treguard Time Out! Will we ever find out what will happen next to our current brave souls currently in quest? That time will come again, I can promise you that. Just make sure you're here.
*Forester becomes frozen mid-curse
Session 8 - 29 October 2000
Treguard: Well, you sure took your time. Close the door behind you. The dungeon is stirring, quite unpleasantly I must say. A team is already in progress and here's a progress report.
- Remember Ash and co?
- Well they're back home now, and justly so,
- They left Level 1 and met Merlin on tour,
- And they died for short cutting. Hey, there's more!
- Forester and Rachel are Team Five,
- They took some rope and a bone to survive,
- Climbing the rope and finding an elf much later,
- They used a bone, a very wise lifesaver.
- But now they're in Level 2 and Survival is their task,
- Will they reach Level 3, I hear you ask?
- But now time turns, time out is gone,
- And the game once again is on!
Treguard Now remember! The Clue is "Open your mind, and other things"
- A Crossbow
- A Fork Shaped Stick
- A Key
- A Jar of Humbugs
- A Book with the title "dark magic"
Treguard Well team. It's up to you now
Rachel the key I think
Forester Take the key
Rachel what else?
Rachel yeah, might as well
Forester It'll be a divining rod
Rachel but the book might open your mind
Forester It's dark magic though
BartK key sounds good
Forester Take the stick
Rachel yeah, that's hardly good, but what does a stick have to do with your mind
Treguard You take the key and the stick
Treguard Remember the clue he gave was about 1 of the objects, not both
Rachel okay, key and stick then
BartK you can open a jar and a book
Rachel and a key can open doors
Treguard Something COMES!
Forester I think we'd better exit :-)
Forester Take the exit
Rachel yeah, key and stick
Rachel run then Forester
Forester Take the exit
Treguard You enter a strange room. All the walls are green. At the back are two exits, but on the floor is a spyglass.
Treguard Team. Now, we've heard how the Unholy King had changed Level 2 to suit his taste. Well this room is from the old Level 2 that we used to know. It appears the King's powers are growing weaker the more he tries to control the dungeon. Continue!
Forester Pick up the spy glass
"Fellow sisters. Here my cry! The Unholy King has pushed too far. First he pollutes our island with thousands of the walking dead, then he decides that Level 2 needs a makeover.
Let us band together and destroy him. All of the forcefields in Level 2 have been activated. Only those with the correct magic may pass.
I hope all of you have remembered your disrupt spells. If not, I should find one before you go trekking. This message ends now.
Treguard "Well put it down team!"
Forester drop the glass
Forester Jump very hard on it
Treguard You drop it
Rachel yeah, put down, jump on it harder
Rachel then the right door I think
Rachel right door guys?
Forester Yep take right door
Treguard You enter an open room with floating oval shapes. At the back are two exits.
Rachel use the stick?
Forester Rachel: Are you sure?
Rachel well, it's an empty room
Treguard I think you've got everything from this room team, don't waste time
Rachel just right door then
Forester Take right door
Rachel aaaargh, what are the eyes for?
Rachel they're freaky
Treguard You emerge on the edge of a large body of water. To your left is an exit which you can reach. Further ahead are two heads. The heads turn towards you and start talking.
Treguard "One of us is right"
Treguard "The other is wrong and tells a lie"
Treguard "You must know which tells the truth"
Rachel ask 'what would the other one say' question I think
Treguard "And which one lies"
Rachel rephrase that and whatever
Treguard "Speak now or forever hold your peace"
Treguard Caution team. One of these heads is telling the truth. If you figure out which one is telling the truth you may earn some information. If not, well, you can still proceed but who knows what will happen.
BartK hold on
Treguard "A dragon, Smirkenoff is a wyrm"
Treguard "A Wyrm that flies no doubt"
Treguard "Onward is your way forward"
Treguard "And Backward is not not the way to your object"
Treguard "Ask any questions if you will"
Rachel try something like 'what would the red head say if I asked him which way to go' to the blue one Forester
Forester Blue Head: Which direction would the Red Head tell me to go for the quest onwards or backwards?
Treguard He would turn 270 degrees around right
Forester That does not answer my question
Treguard So sorry strange one
Rachel the blue is lying
Rachel so the red must be telling the truth
Rachel so we go onwards
Treguard You have chosen wisely, for I am the truth teller. Here is your information. REVEAL!!!!!!
Rachel yeah, tell the heads we know their secret...
Treguard You will WIN or lose!
Treguard Farewell, I hope this is useful to you
Rachel yeah, we couldn't have figured that out
Treguard There's something here!
Forester The letters AD
Forester take the exit.
Treguard You enter a dark room with two exits, one of them locked. It's up to you team. You can try and unlock the door and go that way or go through the unlocked exit. The choice is yours of course.
Forester Rachel: A Disrupt spell?
Rachel can we use the stick to find out.... I'm so stick of the bloody twig
Forester Unlock the door with the key
Rachel it could be a trick...
Treguard You hold the key up to the lock and the lock disappears. You then go through the door.
Rachel we now have RAIDIC
Treguard You enter a room with three mountains at the back and two exits just in front of you.
Rachel can we use the stick yet?
Forester Is there anything noticeable about these mountains?
Treguard Not really
Rachel there's no letters here, so maybe the stick
Forester I'm beginning to think you're right.
Forester Hold out the stick
Rachel yeah, it only 'works' once
Treguard You wave the stick about. Something is revealed.
Forester Letters: IRADICA
Treguard A zombie is following you team, quickly!
Rachel see if there's a T and an E as well
Forester Take right exit
Treguard You enter a room with a bomb and no exits. Quickly team, unscramble the word in front of you within 30 seconds to reveal the exit. Hurry!
Forester Missed the m :-)
Treguard You diffuse the bomb by correctly naming the word. An exit is revealed in the wall.
Forester Letters: IRADICATE
Forester Take the exit
Treguard This is the main obstacle in Level 2, and is known as the dreaded eliminator. We've already lost two teams here. What you must do is look at the screen that appears.
Rachel working again now
Treguard You are given a situation. For example, -2 and +2. Then you are given a question. MONDAY and JULY. Firstly, you must -2 on the Monday which will become Saturday, and then +2 on the JULY, which then becomes SEPTEMBER. If you don't get all correct, the eliminator will swat you with a 20-Megawatt Fireball! You have 45 seconds per question! Go!
- -3 +1 +1
Rachel B H B
Forester V H B
Rachel oh, it's -
Rachel never trust my answers
Forester I never do :p
- +4 -2 +3
Treguard 45 seconds
Forester March Wednesday November
Rachel or is it October
Forester March Wednesday October
Treguard IS THAT YOUR ANSWER?
Forester Yes. March Wednesday October
Treguard Btw, when you want to give the answer to me, type ANSWER = then the answer
Forester Bart: Do No 3 Rachel: Do no 2
Forester I'll do 1
Forester 1. November
Rachel mine is Tuesday
Forester Barts is F
Forester November Tuesday F?
Forester ANSWER = November TUESDAY F
- -2 +1 -3
Rachel 3 is pisces
Rachel I dunno libra
BartK Leo me thinks
Rachel lets go to the yahoo star signs
Forester ANSWER = LEO 2:00 PISCES
Treguard CORRECT. WAHAY!
Rachel yay that was clever
Treguard You are the first team to get this far
Rachel hey!!! We got to the end of the level
Treguard Well done team! You have passed the eliminator. The screen fades away and an orange falls from the sky. A portal appears in the arm at the back. Onward team!
Forester Is there a save game option? :-)
Rachel lets save before we continue
Treguard Something COMES!
*Rachel is serious
Forester Take orange, then the exit
Treguard You emerge outside on an icy mountain. Ahead of you is a forcefield, which continuously flickers
Rachel what's the spell?
Rachel I think it's a disrupt spell anyway
Rachel oh, I'm the spell caster
Rachel SPELLCASTING: IRADICATE
*Rachel crosses her fingers
Treguard You cast the spell and the forcefield disappears. You can see a portal just in front of you.
Forester Take the exit
Rachel ah... giant. hi?
Treguard "Have you come to proceed to Level 3?"
Rachel sure is lovely weather isn't it...
Treguard "The time of testing has begun. To proceed, walk through the trapdoor and down the steps. Your journey is longer than you think.
Rachel yeah, I think so
Treguard You will meet dangers you couldn't even begin to imagine. Farewell and good luck."
Forester Ask if he knows anything that may aid our quest
Rachel yeah, be polite though
BartK can he offer safe journey perhaps?
Rachel or aid us in any way?
Treguard I could give you something, but you can't take it to the next level
Treguard You might meet a terrible death
Forester Any information?
*Rachel looks hopeful
Treguard I have a spell called SUICIDE
Forester We'll pass on that.
Rachel hmm... okay, let's go at this point
BartK we meet the grim reaper?
Treguard I don't think you'll like it though
Forester Go through trapdoor.
Treguard You go through the trapdoor
Treguard YES Level 3 here you come!
Treguard My, my, you are getting good at this. I think the dungeon has finally met a worthy opponent. This is Level 3, probably the last level that you will venture through.
Treguard I know nothing of this level, so you will need to be on the lookout for information, although I doubt that you'll find much anyway. Well, don't linger here team!
Treguard In front of you lies a path which leads to the start of Level 3. There is a loaf of bread.
Treguard Do you wish to examine it?
Forester Take the loaf
BartK examine bridge
Treguard You put the bread in your knapsack
Treguard The bridge has a gap which you can easily jump across
Forester If all's well move onwards
Rachel yeah, fine by me
Forester Walk forwards minding the gap
BartK jump gap on bridge
Rachel I'm only little, so someone help me across
*Forester throws Rachel across
Treguard You jump across
BartK oooh Quake glass :)
Treguard You appear in a small stone courtyard with two exits
Forester I believe our quest is for the cup
BartK read/examine signs
Rachel we're after the cup, aren't we, so that seems like a good option
Rachel and it's on the right
Forester Pass through the right-hand portal.
Rachel which is always nice
Treguard You exit through the right-hand portal
Treguard TIME OUT!
Treguard Hmm. Another week of reality now sets in after time out. No, I suppose that you'll have to go back to your reality and wait a while. Just like I have to wait in this reality. At least, I don't think it's real.
Session 9 - 05 November 2000
Treguard: Oh, hello watchers. I was just thinking about our current team in progress. They're doing well. Shame about the team that came before them though. They became the "Shortest Quest Ever!" with a total of just 6 minutes.
Pickle I tell you, some of these teams are so slow that they spend 6 minutes in a room sometimes.
Treguard Anyway, I'm sure you all want to know how our current team in progress are doing. Well, here's a progress report
- Our team are Forester, Rachel and Bart,
- Let's hope this team never part,
- They passed a bomb room in Level 2,
- And then really didn't know what to do,
- Rachel, a puzzle did frustrate her,
- Of course, that dreaded eliminator
- Not so dreaded now since it's been passed,
- The team made it to Level 3 at last,
- They entered a cup portal, objects are none,
- But look time is continuing, the game is on!
Treguard You enter a street. On the left are two huts, one with a portal in front of it. A ramp on the right leads to another exit. There is also a set of stairs which joins up with the path at the end of the room. On the floor is a spyglass.
Caution team. This is Level 3, and in this level, it will not matter which exit you take, unless otherwise instructed by someone.
Pickle Oh my master! This Level 3 always gives me the shivers!
Treguard Gives you the shivers? Why you silly elf, we've only seen it once, and this happens to be the first time.
Forester Pick up the spy glass
BartK it seems to be a troublesome night
"My Lord. What is that dreadful noise? ARGH!! It deafens me!"
"Don't be so stupid. There's a team in Level 3. I didn't think that this would ever happen. It's half way through the season, and the furthest anybody's got is Level 2! My lovely creation, the Eliminator, has been beaten now."
"But Sire. What are you going to do? There's no way to stop them in the end."
"Of course there is, you stupid Sawed Freak! Don't you remember the stories about the old dungeon in 1989? Nobody beat that. Hell, there were only a few teams that reached Level 3. I seem to have beaten that record up to now, and I intend to keep it that way."
"What's the plan then?"
"Don't rush me! There is always a final puzzle which the little kidsies must complete. My puzzle is so unbelievably hard that they won't know how to cross it. That is unless they possess superior intellect, and I don't think they do somehow. Do you?"
"Can you tell me what to expect on this puzzle?"
"Not a chance me old DIY expert."
"Oh, never mind. Anyway, what've you done to stop the little monstrosities in Level 3? The goblin hunting parties, I'm sure you remember them - they seeming to be taking the right path for a change rather than the left. If you need to meet them then you do that. Ok? I don't want to lose one of my henchmen to them. After all, they've already eaten my cat, Fluffy. Anyway, is that all?"
"I've developed and put into action a cunning plan. Look at your viewscreen My Lord"
"Yes. The Quest Object Room. What of it?"
"Well Sire. One of those cups is real, but one is a fake. If the little darlings choose the wrong one, they'll be blown up by a massive neutron bomb!"
"Knice one. Well that'll take care of our problem. Now back to work. By the way, which one is the real one? They both look the same"
"Well Sire, it's the one on the…"
"Stop! Intruder alert. Someone is spying on me! Blade, hunt and destroy now!"
Forester Put down the spy glass and ensure it's thoroughly destroyed!
Rachel drop the spyglass and jump on it. HARD
Treguard you do that very quickly
Rachel I think we should try taking some left exits because of that bit about the goblins
BartK don't wanna end up like Fluffy
Rachel and we need to find a way of stopping a neutron war
Forester Exit via the left portal.
Pickle Hmm, much of use here, I think...
Treguard Welcome to the final clue room on your adventure team. Examine all objects with care but don't delay!
Rachel ooh, a pine table. What's on it?
BartK examine table
Treguard you examine the table
- A potion labelled "Start Embryo"
- A potion labelled "Acupuncture Tree"
- A potion labelled "Cease Lingo"
- A potion labelled "Light guild"
- A potion labelled "Memory Ingram"
- A scroll
Rachel umm... what does the scroll say?
Treguard It says: "Stop! You forgot your medicine."
Rachel medicine?? uh, the acupuncture
Forester That's what I'm thinking.
Rachel Anyone got a dictionary handy?
BartK sounds right
Rachel start embryo is like starting birth
Rachel cease lingo is like stop talking-ish
Rachel acupuncture is medicine
Rachel light guild???
BartK brighten the room
Treguard Think, team, perhaps only one of these words make sense
Treguard Well, what did the scroll say?
Rachel memory ingram???
Rachel start, cease, light, acupuncture
Rachel cease = stop
Pickle Look at the scroll, team!
BartK Memory = forgot
Rachel cease = stop
Rachel acupuncture = medicine
Forester I think I'm going with the memory potion.
Rachel forgot is the opposite of memory
Pickle One more, team.
Rachel I haven't got a clue here
Forester Pick up the memory potion.
Rachel acupuncture stuff and memory then?
BartK suppose so
Forester Pick up the acupuncture potion
Treguard You take those two
Rachel where are the exits?
BartK examine room
Treguard There is nothing interesting about the room
Forester Exit via the left-hand portal.
Treguard You enter a small courtyard within the church grounds. You will need to find a way to get into the Unholy King's Bartel Keep. Only then will you be able to find what you have sought for so long.
Treguard There is a locked door ahead of you and portals to the left and right. In the distance you smell the vile odour of Goblins. There is a pack of goblins somewhere close.
Rachel we could grow a tree? or remember which way to take? or take the left door...
Forester Is there anything else around?
BartK need to find key...
Rachel left exit then???
Rachel there's not much else we can do apart from grow a tree
Treguard Team. Stop wasting your time
Forester Take the left exit
Rachel oh well.... what makes me think we missed something
Treguard You enter a study with a large mantelpiece in the centre, a bookcase and a portal at the back. There is a letter on the mantelpiece. You can't smell the goblins anymore, so you must have lost them.
Rachel okay, so we're not dead yet
Pickle Hmm. We had this sort of thing back in the caves. Only we couldn't read, so they weren't really much use to us...
Forester Read the note
Treguard You open the scroll. There are two sides to it, so you read the first side first obviously. It says:
Treguard "Dear Merlin I have no choice but to leave this establishment. I know that you know the reason why.
Treguard In any case, to prevent the all evil powerful one I have hidden one of your spells somewhere in the room. This spell will help you get to the Bartel Keep. Follow these instructions.

Treguard You press the last button, and suddenly a portal appears at the back of the room and some other useful magical pieces located in different parts of the room.
Forester Examine magical bits
Treguard They are magic in some way
Rachel UNLOCK - is that a spell
Forester I believe so.
Forester Exit via the portal.
Treguard You emerge next to a large fortification. The path you must take continues around the corner. Well done team. You appear to have reached Bartel Keep. You must find the entrance and your destiny awaits.
Pickle I can't stand these urbanised places. Who'd want to live in a massive fortification with all the modern comforts when you can live in a network of underground caves?
Forester Look for an entrance.
Treguard The path continues around the wall at the end
Rachel walk round the edge of the wall
Forester Follow the path
Treguard "Right. Gotcha. You, stay there Goblin; this puny thing will satisfy my hunger today. Well dungeoneer, it seems that you've come to a very sharp end. Did you think that you could beat us? Nothing can stop us. HAHAHAHAHAH!"
Rachel use the memory thing? make them slower
Rachel or grow a tree?
Treguard "Well I'm going to give you a minute for any last requests. If you'd like to pass the time with pathetic grovel, then feel free."
Forester I don't think a good memory is going to help us.
Pickle Aaaargh!!! Make them hurry, Master!
BartK tree and jump wall!?
Rachel goblins can climb trees
Forester Ask them if they'll barter for our freedom
Pickle No, team, no!...
Rachel but it's better than having a good memory
Rachel Pickle, help us please... break the rules
BartK unless we can remember how to trick them to let us go...
Treguard Right time's up. It's time for my dinner. Goodbye little thing. Oh and by the way, thanks ever so much for coming to dinner.
Treguard Ooooh nasty. Well team, it seems like you've been put on the main menu. Without the Cease Lingo potion, you couldn't slow them down in order to escape.
Treguard Ah well. Spellcasting DISMISS.
Pickle Oh, what a shame! I really did like them...
Rachel damn, we were doing so well
BartK damn goblins... ruin everything ;-\
Treguard and so close, yet so very far
