Looks like two different conversations going on here. The one I responded too was about going through portals we have access to already. In this instance you cast on the portal and the rune pops up. You then activate the rune and cast on the portal again. As far as I know, there were no diagrams or maps about this which leads me to believe the second discussion is about activating a portal for the first time. Now I'll admit I'm easily confused so cut it out. ;)

Ja'de, you're right. Much of the discussion at the end is about activating the Twisted Woods portal for the first time.

I wouldn't have so much of an issue with the new way to open the Twisted Woods Portal, as long as there was a way to either relisten to Shadow's speech and Woodsy's speech. The transcription in the book would take care of it. I think younger children would be frustrated with how quickly the information in those two speeches was given, without an alternative way to revisit it.

I'm happy with the improvements in the game this release, including the videos setting up the various quests.

You didn't miss it Mowog, it only appears when you click the Trixter painting after the stone quest. A point to remember for us all here I think. Activating something may well actvate another item somewhere else.


Thanks, Tokai. Was there any mention of the clue's appearance in Trixter's monologue? That would have helped - for example, if he'd said something like "An important clue has now been added here in the Courtyard."

As for our actions making things happen elsewhere in the Realm, that's great, and very Myst-like! It just hadn't happened yet in MQO, so I didn't suspect anything.

Mowog, I don't think there is any reference to the new clue triggered I now learn by completing the Stones quest but Willow does make a reference to it in her instructions on opening the Forest Portal. I originally misunderstood Willow thinking she was saying there was a poem somewhere on one of the courtyard walls that gave all the details to opening the Forest Portal. Nope just the diagram showing how to cast on the stones or globes in the Portal. I tend to interpret everything to literal and it is a constant hindrance!

If I'm not mistaken Willow says: "a PUZZLE in the Courtyard..." so I thought back at everything I saw while doing the quests and could not think of a single puzzle to solve. The diagram is not a puzzle. :roll: :roll: Or did she say a DIAGRAM?... hmm... :? :? Should I reset my avatar for the 11th time? :lol: :lol:

@ jek -

Yeah, I thought she said "poem" too, and when a couple of us went back to look, that's what I was trying to find. Then we found the diagram that couldn't have been any plainer - if we'd only known it was there.

All this goes to prove that there is a transcript missing from the journal. :)

Didn't want to start a new thread.

:? Pretty she may be – but our Willow is sometimes difficult to understand. Can anyone please put me out of my misery by quoting the penultimate rune in her last video? She quotes a ******* rune – then a Hammer rune. It’s the ******* rune that I just simply cannot discern from her flippant-like US accent. The video shows what I can only describe as a bunch of purple grapes after she quotes *******, and I have watched it (the video that is) over and over again, alas - I am still perplexed.

Your journal tells you the bit you didn't hear. Quest for the Cloud Hammer rune. It becomes clearer when you start on the cloud part.

It's the Cloud rune, but in the video it sounds something like "Thoud" as she semi-shouts it.

Thanks Rusty - I just knew I could count on you.
