The Book Eaters

Congratulations to our 2024 Scavenger Hunt winners--Another Dragoon, Fillyjonk, and Lost Cheerio!

Their goblin team, the Book Eaters, answered questions, found hidden eggs, completed tasks, swiped a T-Rex egg and taught Prince Pimplepop of the goblins to get in touch with his inner teenage rebel.

Runners-up 89 Friends--Tordon, versemicroverse, and Nyx 89--did the same and managed to overthrow a queen, to boot!

You can read their entire adventure in the Scavenger Hunt game thread, here.

Two non-competitive teams (with PlaidPeregrine, Wishkamon, King Habby, Foggy Knight, and Pseudenim) are still running through their adventures. Once those are done, you can come back and see how they fared!

Thanks to all who played... [Read More]
