The Crystal Jewel

4

The other day, I was reminded of a recent visit to Questacon, our National Science and Technology Centre where my favourite exhibit involved swapping a rather large jewel with a bag of sand.

Swap a ‘diamond’ sitting on a pressure sensor with a bag of sand, so you don’t wake the statue

Much like the Indiana Jones movie, the skull (or in this case, diamond) was sitting on a pressure sensitive plate so you can see the similarities.

I admit I had to try this a couple of times but I’m happy to report I emerged victorious.

Meanwhile, it seems my NPC is getting a name change to something more fitting for a Blood Elf. Too bad I can’t just be an anomaly. :P

Adventures of Cymre Jones

3

It’s been a couple of months since I had my wild adventure in the Dawning Woods Catacombs. From the beginning, I had a few close calls with a Writhing Terror and some nasty looking rats but with my trusty creepy crate in tow, they were no match. Little did I know that I would be walking into a den of ghouls. Once I was spotted by a particularly disease-riddled ghoul, I made a hasty retreat but ended up hiding out, (err I mean) waiting in a secluded corner for a good opportunity to make my escape.

Replay my adventure below:

What will I discover today?

I sense something is close

It doesn't appear to be too friendly

Luckily they are not too fond of fire

Creepy Crate to the rescue

Trusty Crate 2, Rats 0

Dag nabbit , it's a dead end!

It appears I've been spotted

I need to make a run for it

They're gaining on me

I think I can outrun them

I'll just wait here a while...

It was sometime later Cymre was seen safe and sound back to the hustle and bustle of the big City.
