Sock 2

Hoo boy. I'm whipped. Let's hope that I can get through today alive. My apologies for getting this up late; I've had a really long day.

Today's Tips:

  • Sneak Gloves that fail are still lost, I'm afraid. It's part of the risk. But perhaps there's a class out there that can use Sneak Gloves more effectively...
  • To Guild Leaders: Just a reminder that you're always able to make one public announcement per day. Also, you can change the type of guild or the requirements for entry at any time; just let me know what you'd like changed!

Okay!

--------

We were getting ready to go. We had recovered for a day or so, we had eaten well, and we were up for the challenge. I met so many people, it was hard to believe. When everybody learned what we were going to be doing, we got such amazing response. The somber looks or those around us sent chills down my spine, since it was becoming evident that this journey would be anything but easy.

"You'll have to journey through Mazell Pass," we had been warned by one of the older adventurers. "I've tried it twice, and I've never made it through." He waggled his right hand at us; three fingers had been missing completely. "I lost these to a dragon. A real life dragon. You guys be careful."

Veronica was still getting dressed, and the rest of us were standing near the exit as Seth jogged up to us. "I'm coming with you. You need me."

Shayla frowned. "This isn't your fight. We're trying to rescue two of our friends and avenge the wrath he's brought our world."

Seth laughed out loud. "What difference will it make if you come back unsuccessful? Or, better yet, dead? This city *exists* exactly because this IS our fight. We're all in this together."

We said nothing, but we knew he was right. And as we collected ourselves, Veronica arrived.

> "Are we ready to go?"

"Yes..." replied Seth, stroking his chin in thought. "You know, from the stories you've told me, you might have the power to do this. We might be on the heels of something big, here, and we need to be prepared. Let's make sure that we're very well-stocked before we go; let's do one last trip to the marketplace to see if there's anything else we need."

Wooley furrowed his brow. "Haven't we done that? Aren't we just wasting time?"

Seth shook his head. "There's something in particular I'm getting at. A bookstore just opened up in town not long ago, selling magical copies of an old tome that was unearthed some time ago. No one has been able to decipher it yet, but for some reason, there might be something important inside. Be careful, though, if you do decide to buy one... they're in really poor shape."

Our final moments in Mendley were spent shopping. It wouldn't be long before we faced the intimidating Mazell Pass...

a) Final Fantasy IX (45 Points)
It was Amarant's theme. Mostly everybody got it, too. Nice job.

#70:
d) 2 Red, 1 Blue, and 1 Green Rupee (45 Points)
Dang. OK, there are some issues here. It appears that orange and silver rupees have values that differ in a few different Zelda games, so it would be possible for option c) or e) to also be correct, depending on how you look at it. To avoid ugliness, I'm going to give anyone everyone who guessed c, d, or e the points. (Most people guessed d anyway.)

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!"
