    Actions

    As mandated by Mr. Watts, the OASIS will be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. No actions are permitted on Tuesdays and Thursdays. When the OASIS is open, each gunter is allowed two actions per day. Gunters may either: Move to a world one move away and attack the monster Move to a world two moves away Gunters will receive the password to enter the world they end up in through the e-mail they provided, giving them access to the Quest. Once a Quest is unlocked, it remains in a gunter’s inventory until it is completed. Be sure to follow the instructions when submitting Quest solutions. Gunters can move back to previous worlds, but they will not receive a new Quest. Unless a gunter has a special item, they can only move to worlds that are directly connected to each other on the OASIS map. Attacking the monster is a higher risk action, but successfully defeating the monster on the world will double the amount of scales a gunter earns from the Quest. The XP of the gunter will determine whether or not the monster is defeated. Example action posts: Post your actions below by the end of each day. All gunters start at Aporia. Actions can be posted beginning on 20 May. Days end at 11:59 pm HOL time.

    Puzzle Exchange - Cryptogram

    The next type of puzzle for exchanging will be… CRYPTOGRAMS!! Cryptograms were originally used to encrypt military secrets typically by changing one letter for another. If the messages were intercepted, it would seem to be gibberish. Once people began to figure out how to crack these codes by using pattern recognition, more complex encryption methods were required. But that doesn't keep us from solving a cryptogram every now and then! The most common type of cryptogram is a substitution cipher. Each letter is replaced by a different letter, number, or symbol. There is also a book cipher, where a specific book or publication acts as the key for the cipher. Since we are currently reading Goblet of Fire, that is a good option for a key if you want to try making a book cipher! Make up a sentence or find a quote you like and get encrypting! If you need some inspiration, try Cryptograms.org or Razzle Puzzles. Post your puzzles below along with how you want answers to your cryptogram sent to you (E-mail, Dungeons PM, HOL message, etc.) Each puzzle you make is worth 10 scales. Solving someone else’s puzzle earns you 5 scales. You are allowed to post and/or solve multiple puzzles, but keep in mind that the maximum number of scales you can earn per month from Puzzle Exchange is 50 scales. Please remember to edit your post when other people solve your puzzle(s) so they can receive their scales.

    Welcome to the OASIS!

    Three hidden keys open three secret gates Wherein the errant will be tested for worthy traits And those with the skill to survive these straits Will reach The End where the prize awaits We’ll be warping to the world of Ready Player One for this year’s Emerald Cup competition. Be prepared for classic arcade games and lots of 80’s references! The objective is to be the first gunter through all three gates OR to accumulate the most XP. The Emerald Cup is hidden somewhere in the OASIS. The first gunter to locate all three keys - Green, Silver, and Emerald - and get through the respective gates will locate the Emerald Cup. Everyone is invited to join the Emerald Cup Hunt as a gunter. Non-Slytherins may choose to be part of the Green Clan or the Silver Clan or complete everything solo. Gunter Clans are encouraged to work together and give each other tips, but all Quest solutions must be submitted individually. All worlds in the OASIS are the home of a monster and contain a Quest. Certain sectors of the OASIS are only accessible when a gunter has accumulated sufficient XP. Gunters gain XP by attacking monsters and completing Quests. Each gunter is allowed two actions per day - either move to another world and attack the monster inhabiting it or move two worlds away. Quests are worth 5, 10, or 15 XP depending on which sector they are found and some will offer the opportunity for bonus XP. All Quest solutions must be turned in by 11:59 pm HOL time on 30 June. Occasionally, there will be IRC activities. Log in with your OASIS usernames to gain additional XP and bond with the other gunters in your Clan. You may even earn special items to help you with the Hunt! Any general questions about the Emerald Cup Hunt can be posted below. Specific questions about Quests should be e-mailed to slytherin.emeraldcup@gmail.com or posted in their respective threads. What are you waiting for? Create your OASIS username and join the Hunt!

    The Beginning - Task 1

  16. Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis

    Discussion #1

    I had most of Ready Player One read to me (by Cody, Cody's phone, and Wil Wheaton), so I had no idea how a lot of things were spelled. When I finally read a chapter, it was a nice surprise to see Parzival, Aech, Art3mis, Anorak, etc. in print. The writing style wasn't always the most reader-friendly, so maybe it was good that someone else read it! At one point, Cody pointed that there were lots and lots of lists and then we couldn't stop noticing them. I typically enjoy books and movies with a treasure/scavenger hunt in some fashion, especially when there are clues to follow. It's exciting to try to figure things out along with the characters. The mix of competition and friendship was fun to read and easy to relate to. I can't say that I'm very into video games or anything, but it was so interesting to see so many allusions to different games in one book. Since I was born in the late 80's, there were a few things that I had heard of before, but there were a lot of pop culture references that I didn't realize were from the 80's. The movie was very different from the book, but it definitely captured the essence of the book. There are only one or two major details that I would change.

    Welcome to the OASIS!

    Location does not matter when submitting Quests. As soon as you complete a Quest, you may submit it, even if you are not currently in the world where you received the Quest. Per your example, you can post in Asgard when you are in Gallifrey.

    Welcome to the OASIS!

    Failing to defeat a monster means you only get that one move to the world that day. You will not lose any XP or items or a turn. Also, another general announcement: All passwords are lowercase letters with no spaces.

    Puzzle Exchange - Logic Puzzle

    As a gift for myself, the first puzzle exchange will be… LOGIC PUZZLES!! Technically, any puzzle that requires deduction (logic) to solve is a logic puzzle, but for this exchange, the focus will be logic grid puzzles, also called table puzzles. A logic puzzle contains several categories with an equal number of options in each category. Each option can only be used once. The goal is to figure out which options go together using the clues provided. A logic puzzle should have one unique answer. This is the type of puzzle used for HOL Snitch matches. Unlike Snitch matches, the logic puzzles you create for this exchange are not limited to 5x4 in size. A famous logic puzzle is the Zebra Puzzle, in which you must figure out who owns the zebra. If you are unsure how to start, the best way is to try some logic puzzles. I recommend Logic-Puzzles.org and Puzzler’s Paradise. Post your puzzles below with the following information: Background information Clues Size - 4x4, 4x3, 5x4, etc. (optional) Grid (optional) How to submit an answer - E-mail, Dungeons PM, HOL message, etc. Each puzzle you make is worth 10 scales. Solving someone else’s puzzle earns you 5 scales. You are allowed to post and/or solve multiple puzzles, but keep in mind that the maximum number of scales you can earn per month from Puzzle Exchange is 50 scales. Please remember to edit your post when other people solve your puzzle(s) so they can receive their scales.
