Having found the ally you came looking for in the depths of the Third Floor of Espina Rosa, all you need to do now is make a run for it and get out. That should be simple enough, right?
Although you are sort of stuck in a dark maze that has been playing tricks on your sense of direction, whether or not you have any, more than a Minx Fairy after eighteen full heals. You did find that Elryn fellow though. He should have a map, right? Better than the last one you had, right?
And wasn’t there something about Navon, Dracelix and co. heading for Espina Rosa head on? The Prison that is not supposed to be stormed?
Oh boy. That could be a problem. But you have dealt with disasters before, haven’t you? Surely you can handle that? Yes, I am sure you will manage just fine.
You may notice while playing this quest that your choice of armour… may very well make one scene look positively odd. We had several options available to deal with this tricky part of the quest, all of which resulted in some advantages but also disadvantages, and namely for the players. It was decided then in the spirit of the whackiness of Dragonfable but also due how important the players are to hand freedom of choice to them. So pick your whackiest, craziest armours suitable for the particular moment, or simply do not, and revel in the weird and funny feelings that come out of it.
With Escape from Espina Rosa done, there is only one quest left before the Espina Rosa series is over and that the Hero moves on to Swordhaven. Before that happens I would like to know a thing of two.
I would be curious to know a few things on two elements that came out of the last quest. The first would be the unique maze like feature of the WAQ that was done. Was this too confuzing and unnecessary a feature or was it fun for a change of pace? Was the map too small or too big?
The other thing that I noticed from last quest’s release thread is that you seemed very much keen on figuring out riddles and puzzles that one might place in a quest. Would you ever be keen on having some actually difficult anagrams or puzzles that you could try to solve together like you tried in the last release even if breaking the puzzle might not give you much in terms of rewards? Although nothing is set in stone, I do fancy making puzzles some times.
For all he knows and cares, and that Private Bradley lets him know, there’s been a brawl in the cafeteria. A real brawl.
That’s unacceptable. It doesn’t matter who it is, the lowest weakling or the best soldier, the soldiers garrisoned at the Runed Fortress get into fights, outside of the training facilities, serious fights, under and only under the command of the Head Jailer. No exceptions. Those who do not respect that guideline… well, it bodes no good for them.
But you have to bear with that. Whatever happens, you need to get through that gate, the gate that leads to the Third Floor and the Elite Patrol is the key. It’s part of your mission. To rescue the Vind’s ally. In this week’s quest, you have to convince Sofist to get you onto the Patrol the hard way. Make it or break it.
And now, a message from... someone. Be warned, it contains some spoilers. Don’t read if you haven’t completed the quest.
Are you sure?
A breeze blows with the warmth not all to different of that of a smile.
Both a long and short time, isn’t it? On one hand, two weeks can go by in flash, making one wonder where time went. Time flies when you are busy, especially when you are surrounded by the folks you know and love. On the flip side, if you are alone, if you are away and distant from those you love… Two weeks can be quite a bit longer, can’t it?
Two weeks during which Mritha goes from dreading her impromptu position of leadership to cementing and adapting her role to acting as the de facto leader of the Vind. Just in time as well as Seallah is not idle either. The defector Dragonriders have been gathering; it is only a matter of time before another attack occurs. The Vind has little choice: either wait for the drop to be gotten on them or take the initiative and take the fight to the defectors...
Without you. There is no time to wait. You have your mission and they have theirs...
Eukara will tell you more about what is to come though. Prison Brawl marks the end of the Espina Rosa series before the Third Level… or almost. There might be a small quest or cutscene that will serve as the prologue to the descent into the Third Floor. Possibly, however otherwise you have completed this part of the Espina Rosa chain. Eukara will have the pleasure to introduce the next quest in the Sulen’eska series. The Dragonrider War.
Talk to Mritha in Sulen’eska to continue your adventure infiltrating the Runed Fortress! You’ve found the Third Level door, but not the way in. You’ll have to investigate the Cafeteria and see if you can find out anything from the other Rose Soldiers! Good luck!
Edd Armor With this week’s quest, you are now able to choose between two different Edd Armor Classes. A new, stronger version is available, but you can still pick the older version for more challenging fights! The Runed Fortress quest has been updated and will equip players with the new version.
And now for a mysterious note....
A gale of emotions, images and feelings flood your mind. They come together and materialize into a scene that unfolds before you.
A Rose Soldier sat alone at an empty table. Other, miscellaneous bunches of soldiers partook in lively chatter and eating at the tables around him yet he made no effort to join them. He twitched uncomfortably, a timid stare fixed upon the table top as if too nervous to watch anything else.
Another soldier walked up to the table. His gate was steady, his air indifferently confident. If anyone nearby noticed him, they paused slightly at his passing, intimidated by his form that was taller and brawnier than theirs. The soldier put on a beaming smile as he dropped a bowl of food before the lone one.
''Here you go, Paul! Fresh from the cook's cart!''
The nervous boy flinched for a moment, staring in surprise at the bowl, up at the other soldier and back at the bowl again. It was not long before a great, sincere smile stretched itself across his lips.
''I don't know what to say, Vince. Ever since I came in, you've haven't stopped being nice to me even though I'm a complete nobody! You're the best!''
Vince waved a hand dismissively, seemingly embarrassed.
''Hey, hey! It's nothing! Gotta look out for new guys after all.''
Paul replied only with a small, shy nod. His eyes turned back towards his bowl as he inspected its content with a curious eye.
The bowl's contents were quite unlike what he expected. Although Paul has only been a short time at the facility, the opportunity to ascertain that the Head Chef was a marvelous cook had already been bestowed upon him. Whispers of the name ''Gaston'' had reached his ear but not yet the sight of the character. The bowl before him instead held a strange, lumpy grey purée. Paul was further enervated as, in an idle moment, he thought, but would swear he must have been mistaken, he caught a glimpse of movement from the food.
''So… what is it?'' inquired Paul, a hint of embarrassment in his own voice.
Vince's smile redoubled in vigour
''It's the Chef's Specialty!''
''Oh, I see.''
Vince gave a confident nod and added.
''I gotta go and get to work, Paul. See ya and have a good lunch!''
With a wave, Vince started his way off.
''Thanks again, Vince!''
Paul's attention went back to his meal. He stared for a moment, shrugged, grabbed his spoon and dug in.
''Oh well…'' thought he. ''Even if this turns out to taste as good as it looks, it can't be that bad, can it?''
Paul grabbed a spoon full and, with little hesitation, swallowed.
At the other end of the room, a malicious smirk drew itself on Vince's face.
Paul drew the spoon back from his purple with blue polka dots face that was not so oddly coloured a moment ago. Nothing occurred for an moment and then his eyes suddenly bulged and he dropped to the floor like a stone. The audible ''thump'' he made finally drew the attention of the soldiers around him. Someone cried ''Medic!'' as they hastily formed a circle around him.
''Have a good lunch, Paul!'' muttered Vince with heavy mockery.
A raucous laughter echoed as his form faded into the corridor.
Another soldier watched the scene and sighed. Some part of him wished he had done something while another, more reasonable one he at least liked to think, knew that it would have done no good. If anything, it would do him more harm than anything else. Resigned, Sam made his way to his own table hoping only that Vince would not pick on him today.
The last of the gale passes and with it remnants of the scene swept away.
