Advent Puzzle 9 Solved! Cryptic Clue Unlocked!

Post by Blackvision » Fri Dec 09, 2016 5:53 pm

Emilia walked steadily through the gardens behind the Renowned Explorers Headquarters in the evening, twilight light soft on the leaves of the plants, a smile on her face as she observed how the plants reacted to the reduction in light, the moon and distant lights from the Headquarters the only visible light along the pathways, though she knew them well enough to walk them with her eyes closed now.

Yet she paused as she reached the greenhouses - something here was amiss. She frowned, looking in, puzzlement crossing her features. These plants weren't how she'd left them this afternoon! Indignant, she opened the door and went over, rearranging the pots back into the optimal positions for the plants - from the positions of greatest light to greatest shade, each suiting the individual plants best.

Yet when she moved the last one, she noticed something that had been had been jammed under the pot. Shaking loose soil from it, she examined the paper, brushing the worst of the earth off. 'Challenge puzzle 9: Emilia's Challenge'.
