Examine food tray.
 #337222  by Goombachi  Tue Oct 24, 2017 10:54 am
Find a way on the other side of the window.
Break window.
Make your way back to the room.
Then crawl out the window now that it's broken, making your daring escape.

You grab an absolutely massive amount of paper cups from the paper cup dispenser. Okay, this is just way too many cups. Still, you've got plenty of pocket space, and you never know just when you might need a paper cup!

You are understandably miffed at the fact that you haven't been given anything to drink other than prune juice. In an attempt to vent your frustrations, you try to lift the water cooler (or rather, prune juice cooler, you guess) and toss out of the window. Unfortunately, not only is it rather large and heavy, it seems to be attached directly to the top of the small cupboard and won't budge!

Image
Upon closer inspection, you see that there is a pipe running from the back of the cooler to the wall behind it. You surmise that must be in place to replenish your beverage supply should you run low while you're trapped in here. Not that that's an issue that's likely arise any time soon, all things considered.

On the food tray is a well-cooked salisbury steak. You drool a little as you regard the tender, succulent meatstuff. You don't exactly know when the last time you ate was, but considering how completely famished you are, you surmise that it must have been a while ago. Also on the tray is some cutlery, as well as salt and pepper shakers for seasoning.

Ahhhhhh, this takes me back. Back to when I was still in my infancy and my older brother was the one who'd hit it big. If only things turned out for me the way they did for him...

So, uh, I guess I could throw in a command here, if only to see what it's like on the other side of the wall.

>Retrieve ar-- (No, don't do that, you idiot! That's just gonna get everyone angry at you! Do you want to get kicked out before you've even had a chance to settle in!?)

Er, uh, sorry, slip of the toungue. Meant to say, uh...

... >Examine cupboard. Yeah, that's it.

... Huh. You would have thought this was an obvious place to hide another one of those clues, but you guess you thought wrong. Oh well, looks like it's just a platform for edibles after all.
Homestuck wrote:>Examine cupboard.

Image
You open the cupboard doors and look inside. There's not a whole lot to see in here. Only two things -- a garden gnome, and a box of dog treats for some reason. The latter seems like a particularly absurd thing to find to you, if only because there doesn't seem to be any evidence of there being a dog in your vicinity, or any other sort of animal you could actually feed these treats to, for that matter. You guess maybe it's possible you'll encounter one later? At the very least, you certainly hope your captors don't expect you to be snacking on these.

... Honestly, that gnome's perpetual stare is starting to creep you out. You might just turn it away from you soon.

Turns out, you haven't! You're kinda relieved to be perfectly honest, since dying of starvation doesn't strike you as a particularly enjoyable way of kicking the bucket. In any event, you're really just WAY too hungry to keep putting off eating, and you very quickly scarf down the delicious steak. It may just be the sheer level of famine you were experiencing talking (or possibly the amnesia), but that was hands-down the best thing you have any recollection of eating!

Image
Hmm?

Wait a minute... what's that?

Image
Huh. Would you look at that, the tray WAS being used to hide something after all! You just had the wrong hiding place. Well, better pocket this note along with the other one.

That's exactly what you've been doing! Well, that is to say, looking for clues is what you've been doing. None of them have actually been blue in any sense, really. I mean, I guess the poster was blue on the front side, but that feels like kind of a tenuous leap to be calling it a "Blue Clue". Or a... "Blue's Clue", rather? Well, it does make you kinda depressed to look at it ok no that's even more tenuous.

That particular meandering train of thought notwithstanding, you've found two clues so far. Furthermore, you THINK you've got a pretty good idea of what they're referring to. According to the first note you found, there should be one more clue left to find. You wonder where it could be?

You think you've got a pretty good idea of what that clue was hinting at now. You quickly proceed to unscrew the cap on the pepper shaker so as to dump its contents on the ground. While you're at it, you do the same with the salt shaker, just in case something's hidden in there as well.

Image
Unsurprisingly, nothing falls out of the salt shaker. You now have a pile of salt on the floor. However...

Image
Sure enough, while emptying the pepper shaker, an object falls out. The object in question appears to be a small blue key. NOW we're getting somewhere!

Goombachi wrote:Gain special powers from feasting on a Scooby Snack.

Image
Well, ok, they're not Scooby Snacks specifically. They're just... some generic no-name brand of dog treat, really. Nonetheless, you begin eating them in hope that they might give you some form of special powers.

They... really aren't all that appetizing, to be honest. This really shouldn't come as a huge surprise, seeing as these were meant to be eaten by dogs, not humans. If you don't somehow gain any special powers soon, you think you'll stop putting these things in your mou--

Image
OW!

Image
... Huh. It seems that hidden amongst the dog treats was another key, this one bright red. Come to think of it, this is probably what that first clue was alluding to. Ok, then.

Consume salt to round out your meal.

Alternatively, use available keys on the treasure chest.

You have three keys now, so you think it's finally time you stop putting off your attempts to open the chest. You... don't actually expect the red and blue keys to work, all things considered, but you figure it can't hurt to try them on the chest as well.

Image

Image
Sure enough, the red and blue keys do nothing. Not entirely surprising, considering you think you already know where they're supposed to go. Anyway, time to cut the bullshit and get this chest opened once and for--

Image
...

... Huh. The-the grey key doesn't work either. After all that, you... you honestly weren't expecting this.
 #338222  by Goombachi  Mon Nov 13, 2017 2:56 am
That keyhole's too large. Combine the three keys, using them at the same time as a larger key.

Carry the gnome with you all the way to the end of the campaign so you can get an achievement.

Examine lock near door, and attempt to use keys on lock.
