Recommended Posts

I didn't get the PAINTING yesterday, but it occurred to me to give it to the "BURGER KING" today, and since I haven't seen it mentioned here yet (tho I could have missed it):

 

> GIVE PAINTING

 

You take out the painting and ask the BEAVER KING where it came from, if the BEAVERS and the woodsmen were natural enemies. He stares at it in shock for a moment.

 

BEAVER KING: Where did you get this? How… I had forgotten.

 

A single tear rolls dramatically down his cheek.

 

BEAVER KING: Jack and I were such great friends in our youth, before the war broke out. We were inseparable. All we wanted was to cut down trees and work to better the forest. And then he was killed in a freak tree-cutting accident. Killed by a woodsman who did not shout “Timber!” as he was felling a tree!

 

If anything, the BEAVER KING now looks even angrier. Should you BEG FOR MERCY or CALL HIM A BAD RULER?

 

The real reason for the 'war'. sad.gif

 

Failed to encounter the squirrel, however. I really wanted to throw acorns at it. tongue.gif

I have to say this is the first time I've been so uninterested in an activity that I may not bother to finish it. But my hat is off to those who have the patience to!

Was this third ending available yesterday? I never heard of it. It's my new favorite. laugh.gif

> CONFESS FEELINGS

 

The evening goes well enough, but you can’t help but feel like you’re missing something. For one, your date has only two eyes, four limbs, and isn’t covered in thick, bristly black hair. You can’t help but wonder – is your special someone actually a giant tarantula?

 

Should you STAY WITH YOUR DATE or RETURN TO THE SPIDER?

 

> RETURN TO SPIDER

 

Your adventures today have shown you that following your heart is the truest way to happiness. Sadly you tell your date that while you like them very much, you must be honest and are afraid that it is not going to work out. You part ways after expressing a hope that the two of you can remain good friends.

 

You check that your sword is buckled tightly to your belt and your axe slung securely across your back. You know you need to return to that cave to find your eight-legged true love. Night is fallen, and you hope that you look impressive as you stride out of town under the last rays of the twilight sun. You climb over the fallen stones of the wall and set out into the forest, on to new adventures and your own happily ever after.

 

THE END

 

Also, I had no trouble with the bush. I wonder what percentage of users is afflicted, since I imagine far more of the people having issues would bring it up on the forum. But I was unable to engage the horse.

 

Also also, thank you for that extra detail Sunrunner! I wonder how many little extra tidbits there are that have evaded us all so far. Random Easter eggs like that and licking the tree, I think that's the funnest part.

I feel like there's a way to fight the evil, you just have to do certain things. IDK what though. Also, I managed to reset my game, so i think its once daily or sth. Haven't run it through a second time yet though.

It seems like it to me, but TJ was unable to replicate it earlier. So I'm not sure exactly why some people are experiencing this and some people aren't. o_O

Maybe TJ can add a command [Restart game] or button into the adventure to allow players to restart the game. Maybe the glitch wouldn't be fixed, but it would allow those of us who have become stuck to continue playing with the potential of having enough time to finish... while avoiding the bush altogether.

So, given that it's hard for certain people to replicate, is there a way for those of us who are actually dealing with the glitch to help out in any way? I can pull up a window with the source code for my error-ish game and send it, I think that might help, I'm not sure, though.

What am I suppose to do to get out of the brush? I wanna see if I'm glitch as well or am I just not typing the right thing?

> TAKE CRYSTALS

 

You break of one of the smaller crystals, damaging a unique geological formation thousands of years in the making but obtaining a useful light source.

As someone who literally works in a cave for half the year, I feel particularly embarrassed by my actions. :/

You type (CUT BUSHES WITH SWORD)

 

If it works you should be able to advance. If not, welcome to the world of your fellow trapped wanderers.

Have you considered that the Halloween and possibly Christmas events could be related to taking on the evil that we have awoken now?

 

 

 

Also - I don't actually know how to turn this into a badge, but I made a thing for Bush-Party people.

I have always hated these text adventures. I can't even get past the first few commands. I hope there's a list of what you need to put in there to get through it, because otherwise I won't be getting through the event this year...

b. Engage the horse. "TALK TO THE HORSE" and/or "EXAMINE THE HORSE"

c. There are reports of people being unable to engage the horse. Do not worry if you cannot engage the horse. It doesn't affect the game right now.

 

3. That's it. You have to turn around and GO BACK to the pathway with the TREE. Then, you gotta get rid of the TREE. "USE AXE ON THE TREE" or "CHOP TREE WITH AXE"

 

4. Once you get around the TREE STUMP, you will reach another dead end.

a. There are a couple things you can investigate and collect there. ex: "EXAMINE STICKS" or "TAKE ROCK"

b. You will see a pile of dead LEAVES with something shiny inside! Be sure to check them out. "EXAMINE LEAVES"

 

For the Caverns/Tunnels

 

1. Now, you are in a new place, so might as well investigate and take a memento. ex: "EXAMINE ROOTS" or "TAKE LEAF"

a. There are two TUNNELS to explore! Pick one! "GO EAST" or "GO SOUTH"

 

2. The eastern tunnel ends in a strange grotto.

a. Be sure to investigate. ex: "EXAMINE WALLS" or "TAKE LANTERN"

b. There is an ALTAR there, too. Maybe you can OPEN it? "OPEN LID"

c. Go back and check the other tunnel. "GO WEST"

 

3. The south tunnel leads to a cavern full of crystals.

a. Maybe you should investigate and keep one.  "EXAMINE CRYSTAL" and "TAKE CRYSTAL"

b. There are two dark tunnels attached to the cavern of crystals, one going SOUTH, and one going EAST.

c. You can explore the those tunnels. "GO EAST" or "GO SOUTH"

d. However, you can't to explore the tunnels without a light source. "EXAMINE INVENTORY" and check if you have the CRYSTAL.

 

For the Spider:

 

1. If you have run away from the SPIDER, then you need to explore some more. Try exploring the other tunnels. "GO <insert direction here>"

a. If you find the LAKE, you should see a SKELETON. Make sure to investigate it. "EXAMINE THE SKELETON" and "TAKE THE BOX" and "TAKE THE SWORD"

b. Don't know what to do with the FUNGUS, though...

c. Now you can go back and face the SPIDER!

 

2. If you are stuck at the SPIDER and you don't know what you have, you should take a look at your stuff. "EXAMINE INVENTORY"

a. Maybe, you should try asking the SPIDER what's wrong. "TALK TO THE SPIDER"

b. If you have the SWORD and you don't like spiders, maybe you should try using the SWORD. "USE SWORD ON THE SPIDER" or "ATTACK SPIDER WITH THE SWORD"

c. If you've talked to the SPIDER, you'll know what's wrong with it. Maybe you should give it something if you have the BOX. "GIVE BOX TO THE SPIDER"

d. Side note: If you love spiders so much, maybe you should marry it.After talking to the spider, "ASK SPIDER ON A DATE"

 

For the Forest Cave and Forest

 

1. To enter the FOREST from the Forest Cave, you literally have to enter the FOREST. "ENTER FOREST" or "ENTER THE FOREST"

a. But before that, you can investigate the FOREST too! "EXAMINE THE FOREST"

b. There is some stuff lying around. You can look at that stuff as well. ex: "EXAMINE GOLD" or "TAKE GEMS"

 

2. Once you are inside, you should a RIVER and a BRIDGE connecting to a GAME TRAIL.

a. Investigate your surroundings and then follow the RIVER. "FOLLOW THE RIVER"

b. The GAME TRAIL and BRIDGE are new. They will be covered in Day 2 stuff.

 

3. If you follow the river, you'll encounter a friendly WOODSMAN.

a. The prompts here are fairly self-explanatory. You can either help him. "INSIST HE TAKES YOU"

b. OR ditch him. "IGNORE HIM"

 

4. If you ditch him, you'll end up in at an old, abandoned MILL.

a. You investigate the area and go inside. ex: "EXAMINE WATERWHEEL" or "GO INTO MILL"

b. If you check out the mill, try investigating. You may find something. "EXAMINE DESK" and then, "TAKE RECORDS" and "TAKE PAINTING"

c. You can also follow the Path next to the MILL.

 

For the Beaver King

 

1. You will end up following this part of the story regardless if you help or ditch the Woodsman.

 

2. The prompts are fairly self-explanatory. Just follow the capitalized words.

a. Hint: BEAVERS don't know mercy.

b. Hint: Insults to character, insults to moms, and implications of compensation are generally frowned upon.

 

For the Battlements and the Village

 

1. You can see the GATE. You should make a break for the GATE. "RUN TO THE GATE"

a. It turns out there IS something else you can do; since this dragon is so obsessed with music making, maybe you should give it a taste of your own voice. "SING TO THE DRAGON"

b. THEN, you can make a break for the gate. "GO TO GATE"

 

2. If you didn't scare away the dragon, once you are in the village, the dragon will follow you and try to get you to listen to him.

c. Once the dragons gone, you can go to the cafe! Meet your love! "GO TO CAFE"

 

 

Day 2 Hints

 

Everything is the same for day 2, except there is a new section.

 

For the Forest Detour

 

1. If you made it to the Forest, you will have noticed the BRIDGE extending to the GAME TRAIL on the RIGHT.

a. Take it. "GO RIGHT"

b. If you follow the RIVER, you may miss this section. I'm not sure.

 

2. You may find yourself in a bit of pickle with a BRAMBLE BUSH

a. There are some items around. Investigate them. ex: "TAKE ACORN"

b. You won't be able to leave until you free yourself from the BUSH. "CUT BUSH WITH SWORD"

c. Make sure to repeat for good measure. "CUT BUSH WITH SWORD" again

 

3. Once free you can continue forward to another dead end with an oak tree. "TAKE PATH" or "GO FORWARD" or "CONTINUE ON PATH"

a. Try investigating and maybe pick up something. ex: "TAKE MOUNTAIN"

b. There isn't much else to do. Head back to the RIVER. "GO BACK"

 

4. Apparently, at some point on this path, you can assault squirrels "THROW ACORNS"

a. I couldn't get it to work, but others have reported it.

b. You can also follow the squirrel, but I haven't confirmed this. "FOLLOW SQUIRREL"

c. You can also engage squirrels. I can't confirm this either though. "PET SQUIRREL"

 

From then on, the story progresses as is from yesterday.

 

NOTE: If you are stuck in the BRAMBLE BUSH, and tried everything above and cleared your cache, then you can report the problem here.

- Others have had the same issue.

- The BRAMBLE BUSH OF ENTRAPMENT has been reported, but no updates on a fix, yet.

 

---

 

- Feel free to correct me if any of these are wrong. I'm going from memory. Anyone is free to add more tips.

 

---

 

OTHER TIPS (Highlight for spoilers)

 

1. EXAMINE <insert creature/person/object here> or EXAMINE THE <insert creature/person/object here> ex: EXAMINE THE ROOTS, EXAMINE THE SKELETON

- usually helpful in investigating stuff

- doesn't work on everything

 

2. TAKE <insert object here> or TAKE THE <insert object here> ex: TAKE THE COINS, TAKE THE ARMOR

- you will use this a lot

- you can use it on random things too

- collected items will be added to your inventory EXAMINE INVENTORY

- Can also be used to take paths

 

3. USE (THE) <insert object here> ON (THE) <insert object/person/creature> ex: USE AXE ON TREE

- good for using items

- make sure you indicate what you are aiming at, or it won't work

 

4. GO <insert direction> ex: GO BACK, GO FORWARD, GO UP, GO EAST

- it will help you get around

- it doesn't always work

- it's often situation specific

 

Silly Actions:

 

TAKE TREE

LICK TREE

DRINK WATER/DRINK RIVER

USE/PLAY THE FLUTE (x2)

LICK THE HORSE

CHOP TREE WITH AXE/USE AXE on TREE (after already cutting down tree)

ATTACK SPIDER WITH SWORD/USE SWORD ON SPIDER (after attacking the spider already)

CUT BUSH WITH SWORD (after you freed yourself)

ATTACK BEAVERS WITH SWORD (at the beaver court)

 

 

And that's it for Shokomon's quicky guide. Feel free to modify.

I will add new day stuff after I actually play the new stuff.

Edit2: Adjusting the guide some more.

The ancient evil is a reference ala H.P. Lovecraft. I don't think we'll be seeing it again in DC events. Just in our nightmares. xd.png

Could someone PM me the order of commands for the event game? I have been trying for two days and so far I'm not even part way through the first day. I know I'm 'supposed to figure it out myself' and whatnot but I have tried for days with no results. I don't even know where I am anymore.

I did. It unfortunately did not help. I never could wrap my head around text adventures.

The Bush badge is just plain cute. I'm gonna use it.

 

 

Also, H.P. Lovecraft references, I love those, just because Lovecraft had his own unique brand of horror that truly stood out. Even if it doesn't become part of a future plot, elements like this win me over almost instantly.

 

....Plus, even stuck in the bushes, we can still harass the ancient evil with our flute.

> PUT ON ARMOR

 

Unknown command.

 

> WEAR ARMOR

 

It doesn't look like you can do that with the ARMOR.

 

> CAST SPELL OF RESILIENCE ON SELF

 

Unknown command.

 

> TAKE MUSHROOMS

 

You rip a handful of the mushrooms from the ground.

 

> TAKE ACORNS

 

You grab a handful of acorns.

 

> THROW ACORNS AND MUSHROOMS AT ENEMY

 

There doesn't seem to be anything to do that with.
