Hello everyone!

It's me, the guy who just won't shut up it seems, the slightly verbose fella tied to #BunnsForEso's vision to bring bunnies to ESO as pets. I know, I know, I probably should get it checked out as a medical condition by now but hey, what can I do, I love bringing joy and sometimes challenges!

Do you feel like you're up for a challenge? Do you know the lore? Are you sure? Well. Show us all, solve a riddle, find a spot!

The winner's time from yesterday stands at around 90 minutes, as a general indication of the time involvement so you can estimate whether you're up for it.

** How to play? **

You will need to take your time during this, so starting out at an easy-to-remember time will go a long way to make it hassle-free for yourself. You start out with a single riddle consisting of six lines. The first four will always point you to the spot you are supposed to find, the last two will always reveal some form of keyphrase. Originally someone would have awaited you there and react to that key with another riddle (so noone could stumble upon the last location and boom, be done with it all). Instead, we will have to rely on your honor now to move on once you solved it proper. Which creates a conundrum of course because noone can verify your keyphrase without you checking if it's true. Therefore, for every key you are allowed to note down four guesses. If you got it right, you move on. If you did not, please add 10 minutes as a penalty to your timer and then move on. For locations, you are allowed to come up with four spots as well, however for the 1st fail, you add 5 minutes, for the 2nd it is 6 more, for the 3rd it is 7 more and for the 4th it is another 8, so up to 5+6+7+8=26 minutes if you fail for the fourth time. At this point you may look up the solution and move there, then reveal the next riddle. Therefore it is importanr you're honest with yourself, think up keyphrases or spots first and only check once you have up to four in mind for either. In general the flow is this – if the key is easy, the location is not and vice versa.

** Where to start? **

Wayrest, right in front of the market's fountain near the bank. This is important so everyone has the same "travel time" in the end

** The Riddles **

A solemn bell rings clearly

over acts we need so dearly

I gaze upon from above and beyond

and wish us free from mortal bond

The First Era's founding father

will spring me to send you farther.

Fetch me this oh and fetch me that

I watch the nobles, hear them chat

my alley ally and me enjoy our meal

he makes me safe from those who'd steal

Name me he who are not far from us

would pray to if they were inclined thus.

3rd Riddle

Three pillars high and mighty

make sure we stall not lightly

many lubbers squirm and squeal

when I watch the turn of the wheel

Once I overheard an old man claim

Malacath was once a different name.

4th Riddle

Yes, I heard His highborn order loud and well

instead I fled, just stand here for a spell

watch the others pitch, hustle and woo

'til my love, she walks the gate and through

Ah, if only I could forget my service full

instead the name of Him rings loud and dull.

4th Key solution

King Emeric

5th Riddle

Click the spoiler marker once you are at the location shown on the previous one's solution

Oh how I look up to my old farming lands

my feet are wet, my hunger knows no ends

I wish I still was a working man, pay my tolls

instead I now am most akin to folklore trolls

I wish, I wish me back in my prime

pray to He who could turn back the time.

5th Key solution

Final Riddle

Click the spoiler marker once you are at the location shown on the 1st one's solution

Smack down the middle of this city

see what I offer, I'm loud, I'm pretty

trying to stand out among the rest

surely you must admit this was a test

For by now you will surely know

which cause brought you this show

Final Key solution


BunnsForEso; bunnies, buns, rabbits, March For Bunnies – you get the idea

Final Location solution

https://imgur.com/a/HMvAiFH – There is some leeway here as originally I'd be the one there, dressed very brightly and colourful to make the exact spot more obvious. Please, be reasonable with this.

Congratulations if you have made it this far! Feel free to post your time and/or any feedback as replies!

Have a great time and enjoy yourselves and be kind to one another – we are each another to someone, after all.
