Advent Puzzle 17 Solved! Grand Puzzle Clue Unknown (Can be unlocked using a lifeline)

Post by Blackvision » Sat Dec 17, 2016 5:10 pm

Hildegard sat at the side of the Renowned Explorer's Headquarter's main hall. She doodled absentmindedly on a bit of paper briefly before putting it down again - at the rustle, Jan-Piet's eyes flickered in her direction, and he evidently considered checking her paper for clues before deciding that she must have done so already before drawing anything, then returned to his work.

Hildegard looked around at the flurry of movement from all the Explorers hastening back and forth with puzzles, suggestions and clues. It looked a bit like ants scurrying around, she thought to herself.

Suddenly considering this, she stood up and surveyed the hall again. There were only two areas that were relatively undisturbed - the table of papers that had been checked (and confirmed clueless twice over) and the normal challenge leader board.

Thoughtfully, she wandered over, her eye scanning over the various records, accounts and maps of the expeditions. Then she beamed, pointing up with her wand. 'Ta da!' She announced loudly.

However, no one paid her much mind, too busy with their work. She glowered for a moment, cleared her throat, then repeated her action with a lightly louder voice. When that failed, she pouted, then sucked in a huge breath before letting it out with a shout. 'FOUND ONE!'

An instant later, all the Explorers were beside her, peering up at the paper she'd noticed, sticking out innocently from behind last year's Most Renowned Explorer competition.
