Welcome to the beginning of NNAT's first server-wide event. This will be a story-driven scavenger hunt, complete with builds around the world, journal entries, clues, riddles, and prizes.
Here's how this event will work. Every so often, a journal entry will be posted with a clue as to where the next location is. Whoever solves this clue/riddle and sends a screenshot to me (the screenshot must be you in f5 mode at the location with coordinates showing) will receive a prize, and the next entry and clue will be released as soon as possible. If no one finds the location within a set amount of time (about a week), the next entry will be released and no one will receive the prize for that location.
If you have questions or comments, please let NN staff know. Keep in mind that the following entry is simply the introduction to the event; it does not contain a clue. We will start releasing clues soon, so check back often as to not miss anything.
(Please note: there are people who want to make NerdNation look bad, and they may destroy the builds we make. If you complete a clue and the location looks unlike what you expected, feel free to PM me the screenshot [using the specifions mentioned in original post], and if you're in the right spot, you can still claim a prize!)
I've spent years searching. It pulls me in like an obsession. If I said it’s just some mere curiosity, I’d be lying to myself. I’m onto something powerful. Something only whispers of legends speak of. What had first begun as a simple exploration of the world’s history, is now a deep quest into the ruins of a lost tribe. The legends have to be true. They speak of an ancient and immense power. Something that had the ability to vanquish their enemies in a blink of an eye…
Legends tell me this power had been summoned by a long lost tribe. But the location of this is far lost, riddled in history. This power was so much that it could harm the natural order of the realm. Strange formations are all that is left to tell the story of it’s destructive path to its enemies. Great mountains few dare to climb, floating islands that still are yet to be explained, and creatures that infect the night. If I could find this power we could contain it with modern techniques, and learn so much from it! We could finally answer these questions. Not to mention cleansing the world of its evil.
That’s why I have put it upon myself to discover it. And I believe I know the whereabouts of its location. Another legend speaks of fear. The power grew so immense that if placed in the wrong hands the world could end. With realization of the danger these ancient people had placed themselves in they sealed it deep within the earth. Meant to never be found again.
I know the secrets, I know the rituals, I know the location. All that’s left is to see it for myself.
