Advent Puzzle 3 Solved! Crytic Clue: Unlocked!

Post by Blackvision » Sat Dec 03, 2016 2:55 pm

Victor stood in the Entrance hall to the Renowned Explorers, musing on the penmanship and use of words involved in the challenge to the Society. It was elegantly done, he had to admit, and it had certainly stirred up the Society's cavalier attitude to challenges. Perhaps that was part of the plan-

'CAAW!' Victor looked up, surprised. A messenger gull? In the Renowned Explorer's International Society building itself? This was unusual.

The gull, flustered by the enclosure cawed again before descending gratefully to Victor's upraised hand. It landed, gave another grumpy 'CAW!' and deposited it's messege before taking off towards the main doors - as they opened - to escape outside, swooping past Hildegard as she jumped at the bird's sudden appearance.

Victor frowned. How had it got inside in the first place? Then he looked at the message, forgetting his current train of thought. 'Advent Puzzle 3: Victor's Challenge'

Puzzle: My people are a troubled lot - we've all had a rough up-bringing. Most of us have got used to the mockery of others, but as their leader, I can't help but wonder if there's something more out there. I need to see more of other people, other places- the greatest delicacy I've ever experienced are the local truffles. Who am I?
