This quest includes special notes and colored jewels, each telling a part of a story. As you collect the parts you will begin to write possible plots in your head. Maybe you will like your ideas better than those presented...write them down and begin your own creative work!
Collect the items you find by clicking the button provided when you stand close enough (pointing finger). Your collected treasures can be revisited by using buttons on screen left. In addition to the numbered notes (1-9) you will find blue diamonds (Ideator Exercises) and pink diamonds (Notes from Katie).
Begin exploring now, but if items are still loading in the background you may experience hiccups during movement. When your character is illuminated with light, all loading has been completed. Loading time is dependent on your connection speed and graphics card abilities. Have fun.
The messages are annotated to indicate conventional story elements and concepts found in The Hero's Journey by Joseph Campbell.

KATIE Note 01
I visited Lobo today. He is acting so strange. He said it might be dangerous to keep visiting him, but he won't explain why. I'll talk to his brother, Eric, about it.
KATIE Note 02
Katie: "I remember playing here as a chilldhood with you and Lobo. We would play around the fountain, the mansion and the grounds." Eric: "I remember. It was one of the best times of my life.." Katie: "Remember Claire, the gypsy that lived in the swamp?" Eric: "Yes! She would warn us to stay away from alligators." Katie: "I liked it when she would teach us about good luck charms and herbs." Eric: "She was a kind soul." Katie: "Then one day Claire said an animal more dangerous than the alligators had moved into the swamp. That we couldn't play outside at night, especially on the nights of the full moon." Eric: "Then my father took me out one night, and taught me how to hunt strange beasts. My life was never the same again."
KATIE Note 03
Katie: "Eric, we must save him!"
Eric: "Only the Wolfsbane flower can save him."
Katie: "Tell me where the flower blooms and I will find it."
Eric: "It only blooms in a fantasy place that is far away from here. You have to be baptized under the beasts."
Katie: "I don't care how far away it is. I can save him if I find the flower!"
Eric: "It's too dangerous for you to go. No one should wander out back towards those woods."
Katie: "If it's dangerous for me, then it's dangerous for you. I am going. You can't stop me."
