Land of the Lost

From TheKolWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

You discover a small island and row out to check it out. Pushing through thick jungle, you come to a small clearing. A golden pylon in the shape of a narrow truncated pyramid sits in the clearing, and when you poke a triangluar projection near the top of it, a diamond-shaped hole forms in the front. Just in time, too, as a tyrannosaurus rex charges out of the jungle with a roar, and its teeth snap shut behind you as you dive into the pylon.

Inside, you discover a rough stone table covered with a nine by nine grid of strange glowing crystals. As the dinosaur tries vainly to get at you within the pylon (thank goodness for their little arms), you shuffle a few of the crystals around out of desperation. With a crack of thunder, a heavy rain begins to fall outside. Hmmm...

After a few minutes of contemplative fiddling, you find a combination of crystals that causes a very localized hurricane to pick up the tyrannosaurus and hurl it back into the jungle. The look of surprise on its rubber face is priceless.

You gain 250-350 Mysteriousness.
