The Missing Pet Mystery: Part 2


If you're reading this, you've been selected to be a part of an ongoing investigation regarding a theft in my primary home. Recently, a rare pet was stolen from outside of my Pyramid of the Lost Horizon - and it's your job to explain the mystery and get it back! That's not the best part, though. Completing pieces or all of the mystery could win you some impressive prizes - in Wizard101 US, Wizard101 UK, and Pirate101!

If you've not yet completed Part 1, begin it HERE. To play Part 2, you must have received (but no necessarily redeemed) your Part 1 certificate. Part 1 does not end until the entire contest concludes.

I've had some time, now that the excitement has died down, to further investigate the crime scene


Number One is the area in which my Dark Crows reside - one was found missing. Number Two and Number Five are Pagoda-Shaped Urns. Number 3 is one of my Stone Water Fountains. Number 4 is a mysterious teleporter next to a hidden camera. Number 6 is the path I ran out to the commotion. Number 7 is the path a mysterious person took toward the teleporter.

Those of you who spoke with Daring Dave Hawkins in Part 1 should have a better idea about those items. For further insight, I contacted another, well, not exactly another person. My UK parallel, Digby Dragondust (me), noticed some interesting things at the party. However, I only seem to remember them from his perspective. Well, he's (I've) been pretty nervous about the whole thing, so I haven't really been in contact with myself... Eh, nevermind this.

In essence, I can be pretty confusing at times, even to myself. Anyway, Digby left me with a maze of files, and his statements are hidden somewhere inside. I can't seem to figure the whole thing out, so maybe you can. Send me an email at swordroll@gmail.com, and I'll send you the file. I'll talk with you then about where to go from there.

[I will be in for another surgery tomorrow morning - you may not received a response right away]

Best of luck!

How to Play File Find
1. In the email I'll send you, click on the file and Download it
2. Click "Open" to open the folder
3. Find the button under "File" or on your toolbar that says "Extract all files" 


4. Follow the popup instructions on extracting the files
5. Open the new folder and begin clicking through files until you find the message!

  1. Still didn't get an email from Daring Dave Hawkins. I guess he doesn't choose anybody to go to the next part of the contest no?

    1. First, your own lack of email would not suggest that he chose "no one."

      Second, I mentioned that players should be receiving more and more completion emails over the next few days. However, if you haven't actually completed Part 1, you may not be eligible. If you haven't received a response, that's probably a good sign that Dave has come to the conclusion that your intuition is sufficient, and that he'll send you the completion email in the next day or two.

    1. I apologize - I am still in the hospital. I appreciate your patience.

      This contest will run until all 5 parts are complete, and I may be forced to adjust for that.

    1. After you receive your Part 1 certificate code, you can send me your character name, certificate code, and the game you wish to enter for. Don't worry if you forget something, I'll prompt you to add the information in.

      Then, I'll get you started on Part 2.

  6. I'm confused. I found both (?) pieces, but I didn't see a code word. Is there any more? If this comment is a spoiler in any way, please delete it.
