  1. "And they set out, as soon as the sun was up, on their long journey to whatever destination, purpose or end. Strangers among themselves, they had only one acquaintance in common: the eldest in the group, who they immediately declared their leader and made it a habit to go to him to solve any disputes they had with each other or to advise them on each step of the journey. But he would have none of it. They needed to get to know each other, so as to act independently from each other, as one group or as part of smaller groups, depending on what each situation would demand. All the knowledge and advice in the world would never teach them that..." This Tenth session comes with a seemingly odd theme: the role of an individual as part of a group, whether in a leading position or not. The session will be held on: Day 131 (Friday, 12 May), 9 pm Server Time at the Maple Road outside the main gate of Loreroot.
  2. I have extended the quest for a few more days and revealed some of the rewards. The original post has been updated accordingly.
  3. With the risk of turning a habit into a tradition, I come with yet another treasure hunt for this 12th MD Birthday. As always, it's a quest entirely based on scripted clickables scattered all over the place. It's a race. However, it doesn't matter when you begin or finish the quest, except in the case of a tie (same amount of time spent from beginning to end) in any of the winning positions; in such a case, the player beginning the quest earlier wins the tie. The player who finishes the quest in the shortest amount of time wins. Requirements: No alts – Only one account per player is allowed to participate. How to begin: Go to Willow's Shop and speak to the shopkeeper. No registration in this topic is necessary. Duration: until 7 May, 23:59 ST Rewards: A Wish Point for first place, spell-stones, coins and perhaps more. Important: Choices matter and can have consequences. Certain paths can kick you out of the quest; some of them may be more obvious, but others may not. Tread carefully.
  4. “And once the fire dissipated, the voices grew silent and the dancing stopped, they found an open space and sat on the ground, their eyes fixed towards the east. Without exchanging a single word, even a single look among themselves, they waited to see the first light of the day and the sun rise. It was the sealing of their promise to venture through the endless darkness and bring the light back to the people they left behind, family, friends and strangers alike...” The Ninth session of the Camp of Lost Tales will continue the theme from the Eighth session: Rebirth, Renewal, Re-awakening and the coming of Light after a period of Slumber, Hibernation and Darkness. It can also revolve around the obstacles, difficulties and hardships that can appear on our way before the coming of better days; days that tend to be like the light at the end of the tunnel or the dawn after a long night. Like the previous session, this one won’t be limited to stories alone either. Participants can perform an MD themed ritual or anything creative that fits the theme. The session will be held on: Day 113 (Monday, 24 April), 8:30 pm* Server Time at the Tranquil Plains in No Man’s Land. *Some small delay might apply, depending on how merciful Real Life will be to me on that day.
  5. I would like the Loreroot Hidden Exit to have a second MD-Script clickable (a rock, a sapling or anything subtle that can fit the scene), so that I can use the scene for both my personal clickable quests and other quests I may be involved in, without having to pause or disable one to run the other.
  6. I would like to see the woodcutting related tag dispatcher move from Wasp’s Totem, where its placeholder image obstructs nearly half the scene and the scene itself has nothing to do with woodcutting, to another scene like the interior of the Lore Manor, with the prospect of also seeing the placeholder replaced (at a later time) with something more subtle, like a book.
  7. "...and they danced for hours knowing that, in the long journey that still lay ahead of them, many would perish and, perhaps, none of them would return home. It was fitting, therefore, to celebrate life like they did, to appreciate the life they were given with all the joys and sorrows, the dull and exciting moments they experienced, their dreams that came true and those that didn't and the hope that they would end their journey alive and renewed; just like the renewal and rebirth they had often celebrated with the coming of spring." The Vernal Equinox (celebrated on 20 March on the northern hemisphere) is often associated with the end of earth's slumber and of hibernation, with rebirth and renewal and for some cultures it's directly connected to the beginning of the New Year. In some cases, it also marks the victory of Light over Darkness or Good over Evil since, during the Equinox, day and night have more or less the same duration and days lengthen further from that point onward till the Summer Solstice. The theme for this Eighth session will be Rebirth and Renewal, Light and Darkness as portrayed in the Vernal Equinox and traditions connected to it. However, this session won't be limited to stories alone. Participants can also perform MD based rituals or do anything creative that fits the theme. The session will be held on: Day 82 (Friday, 24 March), 7 pm Server Time at Wasp's Altar in Loreroot.
  8. "The day, finally, came when they left their homes behind. But before their journey truly began, they stopped at the first clearing they found and set a bonfire. And they began to sing and dance around it, like they had never celebrated before. To an outsider, it would seem absurd to watch men and women of various ages celebrate in that way and in such a remote place. But for them it was an ancient tradition that survived to their time since the days of the first groups of adventurers who set out to seek their fortune into the wide wild world." Continuing the theme set by the Sixth session, this Seventh session is more related to habits that pass from one generation to the next as traditions and, more so, about those traditions that manage to endure for many generations. The session will be held on: Day 70 (Sunday, 12 March), 9 pm Server Time, outside Wasp's Totem in Loreroot.
  9. "He was among the older ones in the group, grim looking and quiet when duty called; he had a habit, however, to sing while on the long Road. Nobody complained in the company about it, since a good song was sometimes all they needed to improve their spirits. And he was skilled enough for his habit to spread among a few others like some kind of a mysterious contagion; the kind that none of them would want to get rid of..." This Sixth session will involve stories that relate to two things: habits that occur so often that somebody can end up being defined by them and those that have an effect on others to the point that they spread to them as well. The session will be held on: Day 54 (Friday, 24 February), 9 pm Server Time at the Loreroot Hidden Exit in No Man's Land.
  10. "...He was the youngest in the group; eager to get involved in everything as a means to prove himself to the others, but also reckless and too quick to judge both people and situations. That stance concerned the rest of the group, sometimes more than the dangers on the road ahead. Would he manage to learn something from the veterans in his company and mature through the experience or would his attitude risk tearing everything apart?" Continuing the theme from the Fourth session, this time our stories will revolve around learning experiences and whether we manage to actually learn something from them and change in the process or not. Day 42 (Sunday, 12 February), 9 pm Server Time at the Maple Road outside the gates of Loreroot.
  11. Due to lack of participation, the Fourth Session will be held again on: Day 23 (Tuesday, 24 January), 9 pm Server Time outside the Oak Tower in Loreroot.
  12. You are welcome, dst, and congratulations once again.
  13. The quest has ended and I have the results in my possession. There were nine people in total that tried this small quest. Among them, only one finished it and wins the rewards for first place: dst. Congratulations, dst, and thank you to all participants. The results in detail: The clues and the solution to the puzzle:
  14. "For the younger ones, it was a chance to see the world and experience what it has to offer. For the older ones, it was the opportunity they wanted to break free from their old bonds and begin anew. So great was their desire to shed their past lives that the dangers that lay on the journey ahead didn't seem to bother them. But there was an even greater danger that most appeared to be oblivious of: themselves." The coming of a new year is often seen as an opportunity to turn a page, close a chapter or a book and begin a new one, to leave bad experiences of the past year behind and make a new beginning. Are new beginnings really new though? Or are there things that keep holding us back from changing that which we want or need to change? For the Fourth session of the Camp of Lost Tales, this shall be the theme for the stories to be shared. Day 11 (Thursday, 12 January), 9 pm Server Time outside the Oak Tower in Loreroot.
  15. The original post has been updated with the rewards for first, second and third place. The quest is going to be extended until the end of this weekend (end of Sunday, 8 January) as well, because I will be away around the time when I will need to disable it tonight. This will be a good opportunity for players that have already begun the quest to have some time more in order to finish it and for those who haven't given it a try yet to do so.
