Where are we now?
Just when we laid our hands on the dragon’s egg in our previous adventure, a portal opened and teleported us all to some other place.
We end up in a tower, with some nice sunny weather outside. When we investigate a bit, we notice that everyone has lost their best weapon and armor. And there’s also no sign of the dragon’s egg…
The test of wisdom
It seems that we have to solve a couple of puzzles in order to advance to the next rooms in the tower.
Puzzle 1: Piano
We find a note with the characters “BED” on it, and a piano. Luckily we have a bard in our midst, who knows that B, E and D stand for the notes Si Mi and Re. He plays it masterfully on the piano, and the door opens towards the next room.
But we are so curious as to what would happen in case we have a wrong answer. So stand in the hallway after the open door, and toss drowner brains towards the piano until we hit a key. Heavy lead balls start to fall down from the ceiling. Phew, good that we had it right the first time!
Puzzle 2: Ice
The next room is covered for a large part in ice. To test the strength of it, we roll one of the lead balls over the surface. The ice cracks (but doesn’t break) wherever the ball passes.
Then Helena – our lightweight elf – tries to cross the ice. If she steps on the ice, it cracks as well. And whenever she steps on a cracked tile, it breaks completely and she falls in the cold water (and starts to freeze). Luckily, she can get out and reach the first lever. When she pulls it, it doesn’t so anything.
Alex – our second elf – goes to the other lever. When both levers are pulled at the same time, we hear a click coming from the door! So we’ve unlocked it.
Alex and Helena have reached the exit in the mean time, but the rest or our party is still at the other side. Our strong witcher Letho decides to toss our dwarf to the other side. But he fumbles, and Rhay the dwarf takes a swim. Letho tries again with Sherga (our mage), but he fumbles once more!
In the end we reach the other side, but half of our party is freezing.
