Training Day
Training Day

As you're wandering around Hobopolis, you come across something strange -- a tiny pair of railroad tracks. You follow them for a while, and see something even stranger -- a turtle living inside a tiny boxcar!

It's chug-chug-chugging along the track, coming right toward you.

Train the train

Thinking quickly, you tie <familiar name> to the tracks in front of the boxcar, forcing it to grind to a stop.

You then stick a rock under the boxcar's wheels so it can't roll away, pick it up, and stick it in your pocket. Easy as pie.

Occurs in A Maze of Sewer Tunnels and any zones in Hobopolis as a Turtle Tamer.

History

  • This adventure became temporarily unavailable with the introduction of the Turtle Taming revamp on July 15, 2014. (Players encountered Musk! Musk! Musk! instead for the time being.) It was re-added on August 6.
  • Prior to the Turtle Taming revamp, Eau de Tortue needed to be active in order to receive this adventure, and a lot of work was required to tame the turtle:
    • If one did not have a Grinning Turtle or Syncopated Turtle as their active familiar they received this message:
      You step toward the tracks to grab the boxcar, but it's moving way too fast for you to actually catch it. Oh well. You admire the turtle's pluck and ingenuity as you watch him speed off into the distance.
    • If did have a Grinning Turtle or Syncopated Turtle as their active familiar but didn't have a turtling rod equipped they received this message:
      Thinking quickly, you tie <familiar name> to the tracks in front of the boxcar, forcing it to grind to a stop.
      You reach under it to pick it up, but it abruptly starts running backwards, rolling over your fingers and escaping into the distance. Choo choo!
      HPYou lose 45 hit points.
    • If one had all of those requirements met, they received this message:
      Thinking quickly, you tie <familiar name> to the tracks in front of the boxcar, forcing it to grind to a stop.
      You then stick your turtling rod under the boxcar's wheels so it can't roll away, pick it up, and stick it in your pocket. Easy as pie.
