Weekly Update - 12/21/2012

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 21, 2012, 9:35 PM


Drake says:

We have a lot of news for you guests, so get comfortable ;)

FIRST OF ALL! I'd like to introduce you to some new promotions around the mansion!

Kazu (Bootsii) is now your MOON TUTOR
Saylem (Carneeval) is now your TIME TUTOR
San (Lemon-chan) is now a HOST
Razori (Rachiedian) is now your MOON MENTOR
Lyhn (ay4u) is now your TIME MENTOR

So much excitement, so many new faces! Time and Moon guests, be sure to stop by your new tutor and mentors' rooms to say hello to them. They're very excited to start carrying out Vlem's their duties.

We'll be featuring the usually weekly deviations next week because our new tutors are getting used to their positions. After a bit of orientation we'll get the ball rolling again.


Second...
If you haven't yet heard, Everett and I are getting married. You are all invited. You can learn more about it here:



Third... we are doing something special for Christmas! Stop by on the 25th and look out for a journal where Kaori (yes, Kaori) will be telling you some more about some giveaways we'll be doing.


Fourth.. we have a small ACTIVITY for you so you can get to know the new staff members!

Each host and tutor had their presents ready, but... the mansion made them forget what's inside... all they have to help is a riddle pasted to every box. Can you help each staff member solve the riddles for their boxes and figure out which other staff member the present was for before Christmas?

Phillip: Well, I was never good with gifts. Maybe having them all scrambled like this and just giving them away randomly will have the same effect... But I think we can try and solve this. I have four mysterious packages.

1
First is wrapped up in red and black... And the attached riddle goes I can't think, but I know. I won't talk, but I will tell you what you look for. 

2
Second is stripped in red and orange. The riddle is If winter is harsh, I'll protect your ears and head. Hmmm curious. It has another note stuck to it: Because he needs a new one!

3
Third is in a lilac paper, all covered in eyes, and the riddle says I am a riddle myself at times, but I can help when you're lost

4
The fourth is dark green, large, and all covered in slime. I will not see you, for I have no eyes. Do not unwrap me rudely, as I'm alive.. Darn, this thing smells like something taken from the very Despiral Lake! 


1
This one is not for someone in particular
but for all the rest, hiems members and staff
Kaori really put all his feelings here
to give you a message from his grinch-ish chest. 
He thinks you surely got it before
past years in christmas
but don't be dissappointed too soon
he asures it will be worth it.. in some million years and the right circumstances
that its dirty darkness
will become a shiny thing
and maybe you'll become rich!

2
Can have many color and shapes, 
but this is one from the animality
Is something that who will get it loves
with a shape that most people loathe
if this person decides to do a proper use of it
Kaori says will be cannibalism.

3
Its name is in its spine
and you can read more than expressions in its faces
in each of them you'll find a little number
that our dear host hope
will give a good headache
'cause this one particularly
counts to three thousand
and the one who will get it
has no patience to deal with this.

Drake- ...great... I can't even read, why would the mansion put riddles on these packages? Can someone figure out who these are supposed to go to? And more importantly, what's in them?

1
I am not a window
But you can see through me.
Upon the tallest point I sit,
And in the darkness I was knit.

2
With the craft of Atlanta Nights,
I detail all our usual sights.
I may be quite a horrific sight,
But it's the effort that counts, right?

3
We are sometimes white, sometimes yellow,
but owned by nearly every fellow.
I was exposed to flames all through my time,
But I show no burns to prove any crime.

4
Long and elegant, you might know,
Made of blackest night, of purest snow.
A lithe frame will accept it swell,
and shadows grasp at the bottom well.

5
Ich zerstöre die Sinne
Aber Sie erinnern sich vielleicht an
Der Geschmack von mir
an einem kalten Oktober

6
I'm made of darkness, but I can see
everything around me, near or far.
I follow you wherever you go,
Like satellites around a star



1
A flash of Alizarin and murky black
what better gift than a tasty snack
This diabolic pastry, so decadent and dark
With three so evil numbers as its insidious mark.

2
Oh fragile being of ashen fare
I bestow to you a gift to wear
but not for you does this belt wound tight
But for your friend, who steers you right.


3
A riddle for you seems awfully bold
For you I give something to hold
Through this there is much to spy
A piece of magic glass that widens your eye.


1
The protector of a grasp
Careful with each reach 
Fabric to block each touch 

2
A symbol of kings and queens 
Bonds and ties 
A gem to shine in the middle 
Of cold and smooth metal 

3
A slip over the hair 
For the dark hues of the strands
Reach behind the ear and over the head 

4
Beads of night
Slipped through wire 
About the neck of the user 

5
From the chill of winter
Keep it handy 
With stripes of red and black 
About the shoulders and neck

6
I am with you
Every step of the way
Buttoned up high 
And reaching low

7
A flutter of fabric 
Tie a bow in the back
To bring it together 
For the perfect dance for a lady 

8
I am the suave party goer 
That stands above my carrier 
High in the crowd with a flat top 


1
I'm monochromatic
my answers, dramatic
your faith rests in your hands
by asking me on command

2
With approximately 1,000 possibilities
you will NEVER figure me
I'm practically a 5 pointed devil
when played with, I'm all disheveled

3
Through the sky I may fling,
yet I have no wings,
At times I may swim,
but I have no limbs.
I'll replace that thing around your shoulders,
with my own bodily odors.

TO SOLVE A RIDDLE, copy and paste this form in the comments. You can work together to solve them, since the prize involves a thank you gift from the character, a sort of RP object to play with. So that means multiple people can win, and we can have fun together solving them.

WHO ARE YOU HELPING?:
WHAT PACKAGE NUMBER?:
WHAT'S INSIDE?:
WHO'S IT FOR?:

Remember, the packages are only for another staff member, so think about the answer you got from the riddle and see who would like that kind of present, then take a guess!

Remember, the staff members are:
Hosts: Phillip, Kaori, Drake, Lacuna, San
Tutors: Everett, Zenith, Saylem, Kazu

So the presents have to be for one of those people.

Have fun!

Book, hat, map, word.
Coal, baby, unknown.
Glass, unknown, lightbulb, unknown, can't read German, bat.
Unknown, belt, monocle.
Uniform/protective gear, crown/royal ring, headband, choker, scarf, coat, dress, top hat.
Fate, rubix cube, snake.
I'm not part of a group, so this probably doesn't count, but anything I couldn't figure out was UNKNOWN, and if you're going to pass out prizes just disperse the, equally.
Merry Christmas, and here's a riddle of my own.
I am known for happiness, but I can't smile.
I cannot be seen in the dark.
Wherever I am there is a shadow,
And I rise with the morning lark.
