Point B to point… Q?
Where I live, every year a local farmer's market grows a GIGANTIC corn maze on their property for people to try and get hopelessly lost in. And this year the maze was especially massive, at least two football fields in size.. * which may as well be miles because when you're in there you can only see a few feet in front of you, and you can't remember how you got to where you are.
Well, this year Charis and I decided to try it. At night. With a flashlight. We took our awesome nephew Brayden (the kid who designed and animated the braydenball when he was 8.) and his friend. It rocked! We got very lost even though we had a map. We eventually got our bearings and although I got us lost a few times more we eventually made it out in about an hour and a half. It was really fun, but I learned that when you are in a maze, even if you have a map you still feel very disoriented the entire time. And if you lose your place, you're toast. It's awesome!
Well, I've done my best to create that type of feeling for you guys today.** Log in now and check out the ruins of Sil, available from the gryphon in Falconreach. Hopefully you will have a lot of fun, and I invite you to join the chaos on the forums. We've hidden some goodies, so get in there and try to find them!
* It was so big this year that somebody actually got so lost that they called 9-1-1! - He didn't realize that he could just walk in a straight line through the corn to exit, lol!
** That feeling of hopelessness, despair, and omg this is really fun.
