Treasure Hunt/Race (Shop Keeper's Lost his Marbles!)

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone!

Do you like a story? Do you like a race? Do you like a quest on the anniversary? Do you like creatures that you can't get your hands on anymore?

If so, then keep an eye out for this quest:

He's Lost His Marbles!

The Willow's Shop Keeper  has lost his memories and marbles! Help him get them back! This quest will be really hard for MP3s, and probably really easy for most MP5s. No alternates may participate. This quest shall take you throughout the whole of MD! It shall take you into every land (if you're MP5) and you will learn a little bit about what each land has meant to me! 


how to start: Say a greeting to Willow's Shop Keeper

requirements: Not in jail, dead, or on Gateway Island, able to roam mainland freely

rewards: Broken into MP tiers, 1 winner for MP3, 1 for MP4, and 2 for MP5-MP7. Winners will get various creatures,  gold coins, and possibly a WP. An Ancient Lorerootian Archer is in the mix as a reward! (my boy has 4535 age, lol). 

Every participant shall receive 1 silver if they complete quest.


Quest is over on May 5th, no longer on April 25th. Please use the time wisely.

The race is almost exclusively a clickie-quest, though there are segments and work-arounds that are not clickie-based. 

You do NOT need to register on this thread. I will be post here, in a calendar event, and through mood panel to discuss when race starts once I have timeline of anniversary. If you have questions, you can forum pm before race starts.


As of 5/7 this quest will remain open. the above mentioned rewards will not be available. Other rewards will be given as they come available.

Update June 1st, 2020: quest is ready for permanent launch, just needs permanent rewards.

If no other MP3 participates, then I guess as long as you complete the quest you get a reward! Seems like a good deal to me. The same would be true of other mind powers.

I split rewards into MP tiers to try and foster greater involvement from the respective player bases.

 Also clarification, as I've had a few questions about it: EVERY participant shall receive something in this quest, with the single stipulation that they complete it on the account that they want the reward on.

If not, you'll need to use the forum and will have to PM me in game!

I'm sorry, but this is how I stop alts from completing (it wouldn't be fair for MP5 main to compete, then make their MP3 alt win that tier)


So hurry! Make your forum account and go, go GO!

The forum actions are a requirement to get participation rewards. If you have a forum under your name of your main, but want an alt to get rewards, then simply explain so in the forum message.

Extended until May 5th, so people have plenty of time to complete. It is the same deadline as the hangover and Sage's Keep so it should be easy to remmeber: Cinco de Mayo, all my quests come calling.


There will be at least a Chapter 2, and there may be parts of chapter 1 that will help you complete chapter 2 -possibly other chapters(help, they are not required).

Just to encourage more people to finish.

I have left this quest up for all to enjoy should they so desire.

I have not changed any clickies or anything (though there may be some clickies that change locations permanently to make room for new quests as I write them)

The rules of still only having 2 guesses and 1 clue is still in effect.

There will be rewards for completion (in addition to knowledge that should prove useful in chapter 2). They will be updated here once I have access to more rewards. For MP3 & MP4 players, completion of this quest will earn you more than it will for an MP5 player, so the earlier you complete it, the better.


Oh winners of above race will be put in this post once I have confirmation from chewett about final details.

Check out the personal creature -attached- that is one of the creature reward options. (As I was one of the first people into LR and you can't recruit this creature type anymore). Every other winner will get a 20 anni creature


1st Place: @Ledah  (finished 1st overall and 1st MP5-7) Reward=WP, 2GC(since he let Tissy have first creature choice he gets 1GC from my personal stock), and 1 anniversary creature

2nd place MP5-7: @jakubhi (4th place), Reward=1GC and Anniversary crit (4th choice)

1st place MP4: InnervateD(3rd place) Reward=2GC and Anniversary crit (3rd choice)

1st place MP3: @Tissy, (2nd overall) Reward=2 GC and LR Archer below (2nd choice)

All other participants get the silver participation prize.

Congratulations to our winners and participants! Stay tuned for Chapter II!

(because there will be some parts of Chapter II that will be easier to solve if you did Chapter I, I urge participants to not give people hints to solve race, future quest-goers can ask me)

If you are in the middle of this quest, I made MAJOR changes to this quest today and will likely do so again going forward. I request that until you see an update here that you pause in this quest.


I apologize for any inconvenience. I am trying to turn this quest into a permanent quest, and that means I must change quite a lot so it doesn't need my involvement.

Thank you.

      Hello everyone!
      This quest is about a proclamation the King and Grand Duke, Chewett made. To start the quest, you must go to Marind's Roundabout and "listen" to what Chewett is saying. (If you follow the mdscript prompts and it doesn't give you more content, back out and try again, it sometimes does that)
      Once you have read the introduction section of the quest (there's 5 parts), then it will tell you to come back here. Then post here which route you choose.
      This quest has 3 different pathways: 
      A) Artistic: where you create your own ritual of transforming the creature-must start quest to get guidelines 
       B) Basic clickie: Where you follow in darkraptor's footsteps using his journal to make the transformation occur (has basic riddles to make you find next location---some clickies were created for this quest, so you'll have to examine scenes with care as new clickies may be there-or defunct clickies turned to mdscript) and
      C) Cipher: Where you take the final page of darkraptor's journal and decrypt what it says and follow its instructions
      Once you choose a specific route, you will need to declare it here. Once you declare, the path that you chose must be the path that you finish with. For obvious reasons, I will be looking at timestamps, if you complete the survey within 20 minutes of posting here, then I know that you posted after you'd already started. (I timed it myself several times). Your time will automatically be changed to 30 minutes from posting (so yeah, don't test me :P)
      The first person to complete will receive an elu &2GC, 2nd & 3rd will receive 1 old, old crit from me, and 4th&5th will receive 2 random spellstones and 2SC each.
      For each route, to get further guidance on how to proceed, you must go to the location of the hint [Elu3] and try to "discover" what to do next.
      Remember, to get Quest Points for further rewards, you must complete the survey after you finish. The link can be found when you find the clickie mentioned above. Time stamps will be examined for survey and answer submissions. Posting your solutions or your answers here will not only not count, but disqualify you. 
      Alts are allowed, provided they complete a different route from your main character.

      Hello everyone!
      I am hosting another quest for the Anniversary!
      This quest is all about waking up one morning with no idea what happened the night before! (Some of us have there several times)
      Now it is going to be a little something like a murder-mystery style thing. I am going to give each player who registers 3 clues. Players can share clues. Players can also share fake clues.
      However, there is going to be an "actual version of events" that happened. Each player should submit their version of events to me via forum pm at the end time.
      The player who's story is closest to the real thing (by anonymous double-blind judging), shall win! (this is why you can share clues, but every clue you share with someone else makes them have more total clues, thereby giving more information about the story.)
      1 WP for the best submission (either creative or closest to pre-determined story). Anniversary creature for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, if 2, 4, or 6+ players participate.
      PLEASE PM me in the same message I sent you your clues in. This will reduce the sheer bulk of messages in my inbox. K thanks, bye!
      To get your clues, and therefore participate, you must register here!
      Registration closes by 5:00Pm ST on 4/14/20
      Participants so far:
      The un of god
      The god of quandries
      An oven
      The A-lister
      The horologist
      An erstwhile Princ
      The Twilight's Hope

      "A recent tour of the Sage's Keep has discovered a new room! While walking around, Chewett2 discovered a new room within the building. How could a new room in a building that has been occupied for 15 years just now been found, you ask? Especially when this building is so big on the outside, yet so small on the inside! Who knows, the obviously original wookiee (chewett2) must have found a hidden gem! Your quest is to describe this new room. Contestants should find ways to describe its layout, its content, its appearance, and even where it is with the route to get there. Players should focus on quality in this contest,  not the speed with which they submit their efforts. Artwork is suggested, it is not required, but it will add points to your score. Artwork will not be graded on talent, but if you draw 4 lines and a stickfigure, it will be graded on effort (to the best of the judges' abilities). This quest has the potential to shape or mold the world around it, thus its rewards have the potential to shape the world of its winner. Remember the context of the sage's keep: who calls this building home? What function has it served? What could be hidden for 15 years? These are all questions that you could strive to answer in your description (they are not necessary to answer, however, nor will answering them impact judging in any way). Good luck!
      Rewards:WP for best one. Unique item for first as well.
      Anni for first, second, third if (2, 4, and 6+ players attempt it). Plushies for all.
      Players shall have 2 week to send, via forum PM their submissions to me. They will be submitted to judges in a single-blind fashion.
      Starts on 4/17- ends on 5/5."
      If you are looking for some inspiration, check out a similar quest. However, the judges have reviewed all of these entries and will there discard your entry if it can arguably be considered a copy of one of these.
      I will post submissions here when judging is completed.

      I brought some bad burritos to the the events at MDA! I had to run off when I realized that someone has hoarded all of the paper!
      What person would do such a thing?
      Help me out!
      I need 20 paper. Participants should give me paper to help me out of my "predicament". I will use trade logs to figure out who gives me the most.
      Whoever gives the most paper gets 1 anniversary creature. The other 4 or so people who give paper will receive 2 silver. and plushies!
      Please bring items to me, not ITC codes, in case I idle.

      Stanza for the realm
      Write one stanza to add to my two examples below.
      The theme is what you like about MD, or what interests you in the realm. 
      Follow the same pattern, four lines, rhyme 1,1,2,2.
      All appropriate stanzas will be put together by myself and the completed collaborative poem will be posted on the forum in its entirety to celebrate the 15th Anniversary.
      I don't want perfect classical literature, you can see this from my examples!
      I want to hear what you have to say and how you feel about MD. I am not judging on high language ability or sophisticated grammar... only what you have to say.
      Top three in terms of quality of message or uniqueness will get an Anni creature, there may be further rewards if there are multiple entries of note.
      Funny or serious, personal or general, tell me why you love MD following the rhyme scheme below.
      The Fifteenth Year
      Celebrate the fifteenth year of MagicDuel,
      By letting our creativity be the fuel.
      To tell the world what makes all who strive
      To work together to keep this realm alive.
      For me, it is the delicate balance upon which MD
      Was designed and how since ancient times we
      Affect changes to it; and yet still we do pace
      Past present and future, all equally have a place.
