It was a cold day in mabinogi. I recently got my hot afternoon tea from the restaurant in Emain when I got a note. A guild mage like me always got requests but there was something odd about this one. ‘If you don’t convince Cloud to throw the duel something bad will happen’. At first I laughed at it. I remember thinking “I would like to see you try”. Not thinking anymore of it I head back to the Emain restaurant for more tea. A few hours later another note came to my attention it saying ‘I’m serious. Don’t play with me’. Disregarding it again I proceed to laze around the lake for afternoon nap time. Another note comes to my attention before I rest. ‘I warned you’ before chuckling, I fall asleep.
I woke up in a room. My first reaction is to get my wand and set everything on fire. Seeing no wand and unable to summon pets I curse under my breath. My second reaction is to figure out where I am and I yell “I’m good at bolt magic too. You better hope I don’t find out who put me here.” I quickly try to message someone but it didn’t look like it was going to let me. I try to contact my guild on guild chat but that didn’t work either. I start bolting wall to make a door to only make the walls set on fire making me trapped in a burning room. “Well that wasn’t very effective” as the smoke starts to fill up the room. I start to back up to start to ice bolt the fire only to back into the door. With the fire growing I grab the knob to rush out of the room. I’m in another room. I see the door this time and casually walk up to grasp the knob of this one but it appears locked. There is a puzzle on the wall next to it. It is claiming if I figure it out it will tell me the location of the next. ”you have thirty seconds to solve” a mysterious voice speaks. I scratch my head because puzzles confuse me. I start to feel tempted to set this room on fire because of that. “Hello guild mage. I can’t say I didn’t warn you. You better solve before time runs out”. Seeing the room I set on fire creeping close to me I look around for an answer to the riddle. I start to search for levers or keys to open the door. I even stomp on possible switches on the ground. Thirty seconds quickly come. The room starts to get dark.
I woke up in a room. It seems like the same room I started in last time except there is no fire. I start to wonder how it reset itself. I look for the door that I opened the first time again. Once finding it I get up and open it to get out of the first room. I approach the second room, this time running up to the door to see the puzzle that made me confused ”you have thirty seconds to solve” a familiar voice says. I say another curse under my breath before I look around again “haven’t you already tried that? Didn’t you learn the first time” a voice says. I grumble. Trying to remember what riddle night in the guild taught me. I start yelling out possible words for the door. That not working I rush the door with my body in rage. The door slams itself open. I crash myself on the floor to find myself in another room. It seems smaller than before. I see the door and rush to it when I hear the same voice say “you think you can escape?” I didn’t humor that with a response and I open the door to the next room. As upon opening it the voice says “you’ll have to pvp me first” my loud groan starts to fill the room as I get charged by a shadow. It slams me to the wall and then smashes and windmills me. The room starts to get dark.
I woke up in a room. I whine as I see it’s the same room I started in. This time easily finding the door for it and not stopping, I rush the door in the puzzle room. “You think you can escape?” I charged a fire bolt to full before going into the room. I open the door. A shadow tried to charge me but I fire bolted it back. I quickly charge another fire bolt. I spotted the door and proceeded to run for it, when he came after me I firebolted him the opposite direction to the door. I continued to run to finally grab the door knob but he smashed me. At first I thought it was the end but as flinging back the door open and the light flashed out.
I let out a loud scream. Rolling into water which was the lake. I take a look at my surroundings to see myself back in emain. Guild chat pops up to me. I drag myself back in the restaurant for more tea. Zathrian says in guild chat “wow this is an odd note. Guess what it says? ‘If you don’t convince Cloud to throw the duel something bad will happen’ how ridiculous is that” He mocked it.
Zathrian woke up in a room…
