    SOS Sonya: Plan B

    
    The worldwide majority of players voted for the bird with obsidian feathers. Could this statue be the one Eamon is looking for?
    Read our last chapter of this series and find out!





    Plan B


    That could have been the end of the adventure. A silly misfortune and a misplaced statue, and everything would have been in vain. You, however, managed to figure out which was the right statue. A confident nod from Sonya banishes any remaining doubt in your mind; you hand Eamon the obsidian bird statue.

    He ponders it, as your crew stares. While he studies the artifact, you can't help but feel the cold seep into your bones as you all freeze in anticipation. The occasional shiver from your explorer reminds you of passing time and harsh biting cold.

    "This bird was caged," Eamon declares solemnly. "The man who took it knows not; it has to be set free."

    Eamon looks at the statue resting in his palm and begins a crushing motion.

    "I shall turn it to rubble, the thief will freeze, along with the mountain; I will go back to sleep."

    "Wait," interrupted Sonya. "Is there a plan B? My crew is getting back from surveying and I wouldn't want them to freeze as well!"

    "Well - If the bird is allowed to travel, its heart will warm up. Over time, the man will live."

    "I can make that work!" Sonya said, with a smirk, looking knowingly at you.

    You and your companions emerge out of the maze and onto the mountain path. You are carrying the statue and can't help but feel it's getting colder as you hope Eamon was right and making it travel on the Excelsior will save the man who stole the statue in the first place. The blizzard is back, making progression slow. Your scout announces she's found tracks in the snow:

    "This area is patrolled by the Nords, we will have to be careful!".

    You nod and proceed warily, using the poor visibility to your advantage and avoid the patrols. It seemed like an endless journey, but now you finally see Excelsior in sight. It looks like the crew is back, but the ship is on lockdown! Its main access has a lock in place and a piece of paper attached:

    "Captain, we are on board, but there are Nords around. We didn't want to risk leaving the ship opened; we left you the code to the lock, but we had to make sure the Nords couldn't figure it out. We are sure you will figure it out."

    "What a brainfreeze," Sonya says, tossing you the paper. "You seem to have a talent for riddles, right?"


    You still don't know who that man is. But should the trick with the Excelsior work, he will have to answer some questions. How long will it take until he can move again? Only time will tell...
