Memory Crystal Beta
Quest: Memory Crystal Beta
Received from: The Oracle (Free Haven)
Special Problems: a large, convoluted, puzzle happy dungeon
Difficulty: hard, not so much for the battles as for all the running around and getting lost.
Description: If you already know the password and have a map, you can solve this dungeon and get the crystal in about five minutes. If you are a purist who scoffs at the use of hintbooks and webpages, get ready for a long night. The crystal is near the beginning of the dungeon, but an invisible force won’t allow you to pass until you have the password. In order to get the password, you must find every blasted tree in the castle and read what the tree has to offer. Then you must decipher the cryptic tree comments to eventually find the equally cryptic password. Sigh. Along the way you will meet small armies of magyars, magicians and air elementals. I cannot honestly say that this is more difficult than Darkmoor, but this castle really irritated the hell out of me, so when I rank quests according to irritation level, this one will lead the pack.
