Oh, thank you kindly, Summer.

Nice game idea, MA. What's left to do? I mean, aside from leaving a wreath of flowers in the Reading Group :)

Good work, fair Peacocks! With that, the spell is broken, and MountainFireflower has been freed! Thank you all for your valiant efforts! :)

It looks as though the puppetmaster behind it all has made itself known! Abraham Lincoln has posted instructions on how to stop the Green Mist from devouring the forum!

Also, now that you have freed MountainFireflower, you may begin making accusations again--there may yet be another murderer on the loose! The Scarlet Alliance is spent and needs their rest, so the remaining tasks are up to you! Good luck!!

Well, hello! Great job figuring out who was causing all those problems. Too bad you haven't been able to catch them yet! However, you did find some interesting stuff while you were sorting through their lair. This one in particular caught my eye. It looks like it might be a fairytale or something. Read it for yourself:

You take a closer look at it, and let me know if you figure out anything that might help us figure out what sort of enchantment this mod is under. Once you figure it out, let me know, and I'll check in the Magician's book and see how to undo it. This book has been quite handy today, let me tell you! Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor!

Okay, here it is:

"Once upon a time there was an evil prince who thought he could force the beautiful princess to marry him. He tried to trick her to stay in his palace but she escaped. The prince was enraged so he marched his army across the desert and attacked the castle where the princess's friends lived and where any of her people had traveled to protect her. While they were fighting the prince leaped onto a wall and sprang down yelling an enchantment but his coat caught on a hook and we was suspended in mid air. all who looked on laughed and whenever his battle cry was spoken after that someone always asked did it get caught on a hook halfway?"

Now I feel cross-eyed. 8-}

This seems to be a very ungrammatical account of the Battle of Anvard.

ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS AN EVIL PRINCE WHO THOUGHT HE COULD FORCE THE BEAUTIFUL PRINCESS TO MARRY HIM .HE TRIED TO TRICK HER TO STAY IN HIS PALACE BUT SHE ESCAPED .THE PRINCE WAS ENRAGED SO HE MARCHED HIS ARMY ACROSS THE DESERT AND ATTACKED THE CASTLE WHERE THE PRINCESS'S FREINDS LIVED AND WHERE MANY OF HER PEOPLE HAD TRAVELED TO PROTECT HER .WHILE THEY WERE FIGHTING THE PRINCE LEAPED ONTO A WALL AND SPRANG DOWN YELLING AN ENCHANTMENT BUT HIS COAT CAUGHT ON A HOOK AND WE WAS SUSPENDED IN MID AIR .ALL WHO LOOKED ON LAUGHED AND WHENEVER HIS BATTLE CRY WAS SPOKEN AFTER THAT SOMEONE ALWAYS ASKED DID IT GET CAUGHT ON A HOOK HALFWAY?

Ah, yes, but what IS casting the spell, then? You're halfway there, but you seem to be caught on a hook.

Ah. The enchantment that shastastwin is under is clearly the enchantment that Rabadash uttered.

If you are looking for the kind of enchantment, I might suggest he turned into a donkey, but as I didn't see him at the scene of the crimes, I'm not sure.

Great job! Let me take a look in this book of spells...Bolt of Tash...ah, yes! Here we go. The way to break the spell is as follows:

1) Contribute six posts to an ongoing conversation in The Man Behind the Wardrobe. 2)Start a new discussion in The Man Behind the Wardrobe 3)Post in two other threads within The Man Behind the Wardrobe.


Seems pretty straight forward to me. Post links to your posts here, so we can all see what you've been up to! Good luck freeing that mod! I think the fate of all of moddom rests on this last one!

Oops. I misread the requirements. Well it seems that there is no way I will be able to complete the assignment by myself tonight without double, triple, and even sextuple posting within a conversation, so I'll go to bed tonight and wait for some more help in the morning.

In the mean time, here is a record of my posts in MBtW:

*belatedly slinks in*
So, six posts on a single topic? I'll see what if I can contribute one on top of one of Movie Aristotle's.

EDIT:
I posted on Movie Aristotle's new Lewis and Mythology topic
And the Jack and Tollers topic
Also the Was Lewis Inspired by Alice topic
finally, the Favorite Christian Message topic

All managed just before midnight my time. *whew*

Good work, fair Peacocks! With that, the spell is broken, and shastastwin has been freed! Thank you all for your valiant efforts! :)

As the Bolt of Tash's grip on shastastwin is broken, the final be-spelled murderer is freed and the forum begins to return to its normal state.

Congratulations on freeing the mods and saving them from cruel fates!
