Sock 2

*Sigh* It's really hard to get this up in a timely fashion every day, just because of my real life, and to be honest, because of how incredibly long it takes me with each column. So, bear with me! Please don't be upset if I don't get my columns up at the same time every day; I know that it can be frustrating for some of you, but I'm doing the best job that I can.

Today's Tips:

  • Accessories must be equipped in order to produce their effects! Don't forget this. Also, you may only equip one accessory at a time, so choose wisely.
  • Remember that besides one equipped weapon, piece of armor, and accessory, you may only hold five items in total. If your item space is full, then you might want to think about taking a turn to sell something, or discarding instead (discarding does NOT take up your turn).

And the day begins!

She had led us out of the tunnel, over a small island, and into another nearby cave. This new world... it didn't seem so unfamiliar, except for a darker sky and a strangely heavy air. In the second cave had been another portal, and before we knew it, we found ourselves in the Mage's town of Garnam.

"And these," Lily told the mayor, an attractive woman named Elsa, "are the ones that took down Windgaard!"

Elsa grimaced. "I'm so grateful to you, but I can't imagine what you must have endured. You are truly brave souls." Lily was about to say something, but she was interrupted by the mayor.

"Perhaps it is best, then, that I tell you this now, in the presence of these heroes. Arzak is no longer here. We've moved him to the top of Silver Falls in the southeast, because we fear that something terrible will happen to him."

Lily's lips parted in shock before Scott stepped up. "I'm a technician!" He spoke quickly. "I know the computers that control these guys like I know the back of my hand." He turned to everybody else. "We don't know if Arzak will be okay or not. But if something goes wrong with him, maybe I'll be able to figure something out if I'm right there and able to take some measurements and observations."

Elsa nodded, and we all discussed the matter before coming to a consensus. We were off to those Great Falls that we had travelled past only a short time ago, the massive Silver Falls.

"We are greatly in your debt. Please be careful."

Yesterday's Answers

#41:
e) R.I.P. (35 Points)
I fooled some people here, but the "Link" grave wasn't at Crescent Lake. It was somewhere else. This one reads "R.I.P." only, along with all the other graves in the town.

#42:
a) S (25 Points)
It's part of a compass at the centre of town. Warping to Kakariko gets you dropped on the S.

Submission Form


Honesty is important! Don't spoil the game. Keep in mind that masqueraders will be obvious, since two submissions under the same name will cause me to fire an e-mail to the true competitor based on my records, where I can verify their actions. Anybody caught cheating in this manner will be immediately removed from the competition!

Please fill out your nickname and your actions for the day! Place your answer choices in the respective boxes (don't worry about being precise with wording or anything), and write your action in the action box. You can equip or unequip stuff once per day without taking your action up, too. Examples of actions could be "I want to attack Li'l Ant!" or "I want to buy two Eye Dropses!" or "I want to buy a Wood Sword and Smelling Salts, and I want to equip the Wood Sword!"
