So let's see here...lemme try to piece together what that crazy old bot told me...


Limey Beaver wrote: 
"a man is tossed ashore an island"

Tossed? Like flop...? Ah, now it's coming back to me...Flopped on an island!

Limey Beaver wrote: 
"he is awakened by the rushing roar of white frothy rapids"

A frothy rapid rushing on an island...that's bizarre...ohhhhhh....A river....a white river!

Limey Beaver wrote: 
"the grass tickles his face and awakens him"

That's weird...washed on a shore with grass? A-ha! That must be the velvety green...like on a poker table perhaps...let's find out.

Limey Beaver wrote: 
when he turns his head to look up, there's a mountain of treasure revealed before his eyes

Mountain of PoE...that must be the bids all piled together!

Limey Beaver wrote: 
"but alas! the mountain is a mirage and he dies...rolling off the drift wood covered shores to the abyss..."

He lost the hand and all his poe and was booted from the table (the outside of which is made of wood)!

So that must be it!

A Poker table...named: Treasure Island, a dangerous place that can reward or end a pirate!

Too bad no one got this one, and that's ok...cuz I think Poker broke the game anyhow!

Feeling like a silly-head? No worries, you now have a better understanding of my mind...and how I "remember" things!

The next puzzle is on the way!

love

Just a quick question - was the number of dots after each letter supposed to relate to the number of letters in each word? If it was, Treasure Island doesn't quite fit, though the link from the event thread has the right number of dots.

Just trying to pick your brain a bit :-)

EDIT: As per your request, /e smacks his forehead.

Hopefully winning one of these eventually,

KP, I'm seriously worried about you and your mind!!

/e refuses to smack head since it's already sore from trying to change my brain's essential straightforwardness into kinks.

Kingpriam's Treasure Hunt: Golden Tart(?) [Find it by Jan. 6th 10am pst]

Midnight Treasure Hunters:
Golden Tart(?)


I will recall this treasure by Jan. 6th, 10am PST

Please read the rules thoroughly before posting

~*~Golden Tart(?)~*~

I was given advice by an old salt on Alpha. I couldn't quite make out exactly what he was saying as he was stonecold drunk after I had bought him about 1,000 or so drinks attempting to acquire some special trophy...I did so to no avail. He learned over and said something along the lines of:

"Folks like them, well, they don't need anyone else...they go where they will, do what they will, no regard for others. Sure, they could take 5 minutes, to be your friend, but who wants to stand beside some fancy-pants jewel-toting lush?!"

As I backed away slowly, in confusion and fear, I heard him muttering, "Ooo, look at me, gold gold gold! Bah! I hate you! Rich shiny tartbowl!"


What is the treasure: _______________

Kingpriam!

-----------------------------------------------------------

IMPORTANT NOTE!
The experiment with the PMing to Paris just isn't doing it for me, I'd rather you all see what the others write. I feel it adds an extra dimension to the game...and it's more entertaining.

Also, from now on, I'd like you to note your reasoning for the answer, regardless if it is a greater or lesser treasure!

Thanks you!
