Of Balloons and Bumps; or, some very angry Balloonists - A quest of the 14th Anniversary

Recommended Posts

For the Anniversary celebrations, Aelis the Sky Scouter did create of two thousand and nineteen Hot-Air Balloons, through those resources which he did scrounge from those new upon the Island of the Gateway. As a seasoned Sky-Scouter, he did plot of their course in a perfect, straight path toward Mur in the East, as a surprise to Mur, with much fanfare; and did launch of all of them from the peak of the mountain upon the Gateway, each following of the previous in perfect synchrony of speed.

In coincidence, and mayhap also in response to the many newlings that did complain of the broken balloon upon the Island of the Gateway, Mur did also create of two thousand and nineteen Hot-Air Balloons, and did plot their course toward the Island, that each should also travel in a perfect, straight path, at constant speed, from Mur toward the Island, such that they may be of service for those who did wish to leave the Island.

In further coincidence, this path were exactly that of Aelis, in reverse; Mur, and Aelis, did release these balloons in perfect synchrony - such were the workings of the Soldiers of the Inner Sun.

A curious incident, then, did occur within the skies - when any balloon did meet another balloon which were travelling in a direction opposite, they did collide, sending each directly away from each other, still traversing along this perfect path, at the same speed, yet in the opposite direction. A surprise, then, for Aelis, and Mur, who did each find each created balloon returned to themselves.

The balloonists did indeed experience of many collisions, in many bumpy rides, and did curse of their ill luck.

The first to message to myself upon the Forum a solution for the total number of collisions, and an explanation thereof, shall be awarded an anniversary creature. As this were a race - only the first correct answer shall win. Do assume that Chewett hath movelocked of Mur while any balloon were airborne.

Samon has, in utter expedience, solved of this quest, and earned of the anniversary creature.

I shall leave this quest open for those who wish to attempt it; a solution shall be posted upon the Anniversary close.

I shall be quite happy to verify any answer sent to myself upon the Forum, if one were so inclined to do so.

Samon has offered a joker to the next to solve of this quest; so it is open again to all, and I shall await further entries of those that wish to partake.

Of course, participants will also receive plushies, as with any other quest.
