By Aia del Mana
Thump! went the tomes on the librarian's desk. Behind them, observed the librarian, was a weary woman's glance.
"No good?" A brief shake of her head. The nameless librarian adjusted his pince-nez frames and scribbled in the return-log:
An Exhaustive Guide to Remembering Things You Never Knew
Memories and Where to Find Them
Mastering "Mastering The Void" - An Annotated Study Guide
"You know, the Lore Manor and the Archives aren't the only places to find books in the realm; each day, it seems, the shelves of the House of Tainted Times empty just that much more..."
Aia placed a silver coin on the librarian's desk; although she hadn't found what she needed, her next destination was clear.
The book-laden bonfire burned at the Way of Cleansing, as it had for many years. The unholy commune chanted tirelessly before adding another worn codex to the bonfire, and Aia could just make out the chants of the heathens. Whispering under her breath, her form faded, turning transparent, and then invisible. Looking down at the sandy imprints of her feet, she slowly flittered over to the fire; the rising, swirling winds making her flight ever so turbulent. There had to be another way, thought Aia, as she deftly flew back.
- Excerpt from Memories in the Wind, Ch 3, as told to Aia
This quest is about untruths, or theories that could be untrue enough that they could be burned as heresy. Of course, Mur himself were also ascribed the title Heretic, so mayhap, truths, untruths, and all things betwixt may qualify.
To enter this quest, simply reply to this thread with thine entry - a brief paragraph which should explain something which doth exist within the realm. It need not be based in truth; indeed, I should like to hear of wonderful theories of sorts without any bearing in reality; humour were also encouraged. As with other recent forum-quests, points shall be given based on forum-votes - upvotes and likes shall count as a single positive vote; however, downvotes shall also count as a positive vote (such that a post with two upvotes and two downvotes shall score 4 four points.)
Votes shall be the singular measure by which any submission is scored; if there were a submission which should tickle of thy fancy, I would encourage thee to vote upon it!
Votes from accounts registered on the forum after the time of this post shall be excluded from all counts.
An example of the kinds of hearsays and heresies that would suit this quest:
Entries are presently open, and shall close at the close of the Awesome Autumn Adventuring season. Rewards shall be as follows:
1. If any single post receives fifteen or more votes (positive or negative), then the post with the highest number of votes at the time of closing shall receive a Wind Drachorn (limit 1).
2. If any single post receives twenty or more votes (positive or negative), then the writer of that post will receive an unnamed, new premium creature (no limit).
3. If any single post receives ten or more votes (positive or negative), then the writer of that post will receive a 15th Anniversary Barren Soul (limit of 5).
4. Each post may only qualify for one prize under the conditions described in 1-3, and to qualify for a prize, one must fill in the corresponding quest-survey, which will be provided via PM to all those who enter.
One may enter this as many times as they wish, and each post shall be scored based on votes, however, please limit each post to one theory, such that each theory should have its own post.
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.
