I met them at the gate though I usually wait inside. Preoccupied with their own throughts, impatient, like so many children, they didn't see who I really was. They never noticed my crown, my pain, the fire in my eyes.
Like all others they think the Maze was made for them; actually, it is the other way around. They think I am some poet who will lead them through the symbols and spaces of this Underworld. They think I will teach them lessons. They should call me Cerberus...I am the lesson.
The monstrous walls rise up and run away as far as the human eye can see, circling and dividing. Which half is the Maze?
Even I get lost. It changes - sometimes slowly, imperceptibly...sometimes suddenly. This House is not only made of stone and mortar, wood and paint; it is made of time and mystery, hope and fear. Construction never stops. I take some pride in my role as architect.
They think I will guide them to the center. Perhaps I will...
The sun was very hot.
Together we walked through the gate into...
To run the Labyrinth, simply post your request in this thread; once the game begins, you will be private-messaged with information about the first room, and all subsequent travelling will be done via private message.
Players wishing to join after the start-date, may do so by private-messaging me with their requests.
Objective and Procedures
The Object of this Labyrinth is to reach the center room, identify the riddle hidden there, solve the riddle, and make it out of the maze alive again.
Once you have entered into the Labyrinth, you move from room-to-room by simply quoting the last PM I sent you and stating which room number you wish to move to next (showing what room you are currently in) and add the # of the room you'd like to move to. (This makes it easier for me to keep track of everyone)
I will respond to movement requests as available, so some days you may be able to get 3 or 4 moves in, and others, I may not be around to get even a single move in (e.g. on Saturdays)
After the first week of the game, if no one has solved it, I will allow any player to return to the Entrance to try again. Additionally, I may post clues as I see fit (or let you suffer alone if I'm feeling less generous )
Players may share information amongst themselves as they see fit....
Should the end of Luxtoberfest be reached with no one meeting the objective (made it to the center, identified the riddle, solved it, and made it back to the entrance/exit of the maze), then the awards will be given in the following order until we find a player who fits one of the below conditions:
1. First player to have reached the center, identified the riddle and solved it, but has not yet found a way back out of the Labyrinth
2. First player to have reached the center, identified the riddle, but NOT solved it, but reached the exit again
3. First player to have reached the center, identified the riddle, but NOT solved it, and did not reach the exit again
4. First player to have reached the center.
Should the Game be won early, I will continue to run the Labyrinth for those wishing to come in 2nd or 3rd, or simply to have fun exploring the maze, at least until the end of Luxtoberfest, or for long as I am able.
